Philly man shot dead after dropping his toddler off at daycare; suspect in custody

Eberhart was spotted by Darnell Snell, 49, of the 1000 block of Van Kirk Street in the Summerdale section of the Northeast, who was driving a white delivery van, police said. Snell, authorities said, worked for the CBS Kosher Food Program and was making a delivery to the day-care center.

The shooting happened on the 4400 block of Germantown Avenue shortly after 8 a.m., just after Eric Eberhart, known in the neighborhood as a devoted father, volunteer football coach, and hard worker, took his 2-year-old to the child-care center, police said.

    Eberhart overcame early losses to thrive, his family said. His mother died when he was 10, and he and his brother, to whom he was close, were raised by their grandmother. He got a job at age 14, and that set a pattern for the rest of his life - Eberhart always worked hard, his family said.

    City failing to deliver on community garden promises
    Community gardening is a labor of love and patience. On scraps of reclaimed vacant land scattered across Philadelphia, people of all incomes and hues work hard during the growing season knowing that at the end of the day there's always satisfaction - a new sprout, a new friend, a moment of peace or food for the table.

    Philly's urban gardeners are under siege from gentrification. Here's what they're doing about it
    A few years ago, Elmira Smith and her Kensington neighbors got tired of looking at the vacant lot on their block, an overgrown tangle of weeds and trash, and decided to take action. So, they did what good neighbors do.
