Pennsylvania Auditor General Jack Wagner is calling on Governor Corbett to launch a statewide audit focusing on the widespread waste and evidence of fraud in the Pennsylvania Welfare Department's administration of the program that distributes heating assistance to low-income families. Wagner claims the welfare department was scammed by applicants for aid under the federally-funded Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program. He says they gave fake Social Security numbers, addresses that didn't... Read More

The musician's union wants the Philadelphia Orchestra to tap its $120 million endowment if the Orchestra wants to withdraw from the union pension fund as part of bankruptcy reorganization. According to the union, the Philadelphia Orchestra would have to pay between $23 and $35 million into the pension fund. The Orchestra claims those funds are restricted by donor specifications. But in Chapter 11 court proceedings, the 476 documents produced don't show evidence of specific donor wishes. The... Read More

The Navy SEALS, an elite fighting force for the US military, lost 30 soldiers in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan last week. The Philadelphia family and friends of Michael Joseph Strange, one of the SEALS lost, are remembering him as a true hero.

Michael Strange was a graduate of North Catholic High School, a Navy triathlon champion who decided to join the military after 9/11. According... Read More

Pennsylvania spreading privatization? Gov. Corbett suggested this week that Pennsylvania's 117 state parks might be ripe for privatizing.
When the governor was asked what besides the Liquor Control Board, might benefit from private-sector control. He replied: "Prison health care and running state parks."
Corbett cited the lack of lifeguards at beaches and park pools saying, "If we privatize that, can we save a little money and have the lifeguards back?"

The idea... Read More

THE Philadelphia TEACHERS UNION has agreed to the district's slashing of the number of Promise Academies by more than half this school year, union president Jerry Jordan said in an email yesterday to his membership. This week, Jordan called for the ouster of Superintendent Arlene Ackerman and said he refused to reopen contract talks as long as she was still employed by the district. But then, he and the district "reached an agreement . . . following the School Reform Commission's decision to... Read More
 
 
Phillies Offense is Alive
 
  by: iradiotom - Philadelphia, PA
started: 08/04/11 8:59 am | updated: 08/04/11 8:59 am
 
The Phillies offense has suddenly perked up and is producing more hits and runs. According to Charlie Manuel, "this is hitting season" the summer months when he expects bats to come alive. The recent addition of Hunter Pence to the 5 spot in the batting order behind Ryan Howard seems to be forcing pitchers to throw Howard more fastballs. And the big man has responded with multiple home run games. Howard simply attributes his burst to being a second half guy. Whatever it is, it's working. ... Read More

The bipartisan deal to increase the federal government's borrowing limits is now awaiting final approval in the Senate. Three out of our four senators from Pennsylvania and New Jersey are giving it the thumbs down.

Republican PA Senator Pat Toomey said he would vote no because "it simply does not contain meaningful spending cuts." New Jersey Democrats Robert Menendez and Frank Lautenberg don't like it because they feel the plan does not include any higher taxes on the wealthy or... Read More
 
 
Eagles Big Moves Raise Expectations

started: 08/01/11 4:36 am | updated: 08/01/11 4:36 am
 
The Philadelphia Eagles have raised the bar. With key trades and some surprisingly aggressive free agent signings, the Eagles have elevated expectations around the league, and among fans in Philadelphia. Gang Green now includes marquis names like Cromartie, Asomugha, Evans, Jenkins, Washburn and Babin. Add these guys to a roster that already includes names like Vick, Samuel and Jackson, and a good looking team starts to look great. Still to do - sign the top draft pick and Desean Jackson to...

Eagles Trade Kolb for Cromartie

started: 07/29/11 5:17 am | updated: 07/29/11 5:17 am
 
The Philadelphia Eagles are sending quarterback Kevin Kolb to the Arizona Cardinals in exchange for pro bowl cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. Eagles coach Reid has already anointed Cromartie the starting right corner, an upgrade the Birds need and gives their defense the biggest boost since Asante Samuel arrived. But what did the Eagles lose? Does the loss of Kevin Kolb leave them too thin at the QB position? Word is, the Eagles have former Titans starter Vince Young in mind as... Read More
