NJ Poverty, Philadelphia Public Schools Open, Firefighter Appreciation Day
  by: Rebel - Havertown, PA
started: 09/09/13 1:42 am | updated: 09/09/13 1:42 am
A new report claims one-quarter of New Jerseyans are living in poverty. More than two million people in New Jersey are struggling to meet their basic needs. The poorest county is Passaic, followed by Cumberland, Essex and Hudson, according to the report. The report also finds that children and Hispanics have suffered the most from increasing poverty.

It's opening day for Philadelphia public schools still facing many challenges. Thousands of students will be going to new schools for the first time, because the district closed their old schools to save money. Teachers are working without a contract after being asked to accept steep pay cuts and work rule changes. And the district has yet to resolve a $300-Million funding shortfall, meaning some schools are opening with no nurses, support staff, counselors and classes of more than 40 students.

Philadelphia’s Fire Fighters’ and Paramedics’ Union held its annual firefighter appreciation day Sunday at the Local 22 Union Hall. Throughout the day, they honored and recognized fire fighters who have gone above and beyond the call of duty on and off the job. Awards went to firefighters for their outstanding work in and around Philadelphia. They went to those who showed heroism. They also took time to recognize firefighters who died in the line of duty.
