Gov. Wolf Call for Williams' Resignation; Wiota Street Garden Saved; SEPTA Panhandling Crackdown

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf is once again calling for Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams to resign. This comes a day after Williams' law license suspension was officially approved by the PA Supreme Court. It is effective May 13th. Williams agreed to have it suspended in a joint filing with the Disciplinary Board of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court on April 4th, two weeks after being indicted on 23 federal counts. Wolf says it is "beyond time for him to step down.'" Read his full statement below:

While District Attorney Williams, like any defendant, is entitled to the presumption of innocence, it is clear that his focus should be on his defense and it is beyond time for him to step down immediately from his post as District Attorney. The people of Philadelphia need a district attorney fully focused on, and legally capable of, executing the important duties of the top law enforcement official in Pennsylvania’s largest city. His resignation will allow the employees of the office to focus on their work and help the citizens they serve move on.’

Residents in Powelton Village in West Philadelphia are rejoicing after their longtime neighborhood garden was saved from sale and redevelopment this week. The Wiota Street Garden at Wiota and Powelton was founded in the 1980's by John Lindsay. It has long served the community as an urban garden and farm used to grow food. The 11,000 square foot lot is also prime real estate that has caught the eye of developers over the years. The Redevelopment Board had to decide either to save this garden to sell to a developer who wanted to build several town homes on the lot. The community made its loud voice known and the garden has been saved. It is one of many such gardens throughout the city, but this story of victory is not always the case.

SEPTA plans to crackdown on panhandling ahead of this month's NFL Draft in Philadelphia. Officials say that panhandling in subway or train stations or on buses and trains themselves is different than on the street because people can feel trapped or blocked. Those caught begging will be referred to social services to receive help. Arrests or citations will only occur for repeat offenders or those that refuse help.

Tonight, Clear, temperatures in the mid/low 60's in Center City
