Philly ZBA Puts Speed Bump on 5127 Duffield

At the Zoning Board of Adjustment meeting on April 18th, the ZBA rejected plans previously approved by the Frankford NAC and sent the developer, Vaughn Buckley Construction, back to the drawing board.  The application must now be resubmitted and go through another hearing at the ZBA.  This will set the project back by months.

Op-ed from John Buffington

Let’s Reverse Trumpery

    Op-ed from John Buffington
    Representative John Taylor has decided to retire, so this year's election for the 177th Pennsylvania House District Seat is the one and only time that Democrats have a good opportunity to rise up in their righteous anger and deliver a stinging blow to Trumpery, gerrymandering, global warming, fracking, gun violence, misogyny, and compulsory pregnancy.

Can You Be A “Turning Point” In A Child’s Life?

Do you have space in your home and your heart for a foster child? Could you be a foster parent – full or part-time or on an emergency basis? This is the question that Latasha Myers and Marcus Wing, Resource Home Coordinators, at Turning Points for Children are asking us to consider. Their “job”, but it is so much than a job, is to build stronger families, giving them and the community a foundation for a brighter future.
