A commissioner of a Delaware County township has been arrested by Philadelphia police for a 2017 sexual assault. 50-year-old Marvin Smith is charged with rape, sexual assault, luring, and related offenses. He is the 1st ward commissioner in Darby Township. The attack allegedly occurred in August 2017. The victim went to police in April 2019 to report the crime. Allegedly, Smith was driving and approached the male victim. Smith told him that he was a family friend and would give him a ride home. Smith drove to an area of Cobbs Creek Park on the 200 block of South 63rd Street. That is where he raped and sexually assaulted the victim. An arrest warrant was issued on November 22, 2021. Smith surrendered himself to the Philadelphia Police Special Victims Unit a little over a month later.

Jeff Guaracino, the president and CEO of Visit Philadelphia, passed away on Tuesday night after a battle with cancer. He was 48. Guaracino had also been the former president and CEO of Welcome America Inc., and the executive director of the Atlantic City Alliance. He was the face and voice of Philadelphia tourism for years. Mayor Jim Kenney said, "Jeff had a deep love of his family and colleagues, and he left an indelible mark on the place he was most passionate about - his beloved Philadelphia. A fierce champion and promoter of his hometown, Jeff was also a proud advocate for the LGBTQ community. With his trademark energy, charismatic charm, and never-ending wit, he helped make Philadelphia the welcoming city and destination that it proudly is today."

Philadelphia 76ers head coach Doc Rivers has entered the NBA's COVID-19 health and safety protocols. He will miss Thursday's games against the Brooklyn Nets. Assistant coach Dan Burke will takeover duties as long as Rivers is out. Myles Powell and Tyler Johnson are also now in in health and safety protocols and join Andre Drummond, Danny Green, and Shake Milton.
