Poetry Corner

Thoughtful verses from a rocky trail in the Wissahickon.  

    Poetry Corner
    Musings at Wissahickon Creek Rock formations like naked bones of the earth. The skull exposed bumpy and gnarled no soil, no foliage washed clean by the constant water working a nerve like a mother's nagging.

Supermarket Sweep

One neighbor’s efforts to clean up a local grocery’s image is a win-win for the whole community.

    Supermarket Sweep
    Facebook was in a flurry this spring with complaints about the new Chelten Market IGA that opened on Chelten Avenue last year. When Sharrieff Ali first read the posts, he was surprised the Health Department hadn't shut the place down! But according to public records, this store was violation-free.

Chestnut Hill: Death by Starbucks

Sounds like someone's dying for a coffee.

    Chestnut Hill: Death by Starbucks
    There's a new guy at Starbucks, and he's obsessed with getting everyone's name right. He's also super friendly, and even though statistically speaking it's unlikely that he's a serial killer, because he's not a White Man, it makes me nervous. He's very polite, but a bit... Intensely nice.

Got That Swing

How local saxophonist, composer, and orchestra leader Jack Saint Clair found his rhythm.

    Got That Swing
    Growing up in a family of athletes, Jack St. Clair was no jock. While his siblings excelled in competition, Jack "didn't have that gene" - his least favorite class in high school was gym which he almost failed once for not doing pushups.

Park Safety Alert

Around 9:15 last night, police received a report of an altercation with shots fired near Livezey Lane. Police quickly responded and investigated the area for shooters and bystanders, and a police helicopter also searched the scene. Once on the scene police were unable to confirm that shots were fired and most of the people visiting the area exited the park.  Reports are that one arrest was made after police found a gun in a discarded backpack.
