started: 08/28/11 3:38 pm | updated: 08/28/11 3:38 pm
Now that Hurricane Irene has left the Philadelphia region, the Monday morning quarterbacks can assess the handling of preparations by our politicians and the media. The storm was not as windy or rainy as predicted, so damages were not as bad as feared.

How about the news media? Too much Irene hype or was the... Read More

Hurricane Irene is boosting business at places like Home Depot, Lowes, Tru Value and Ace hardware stores.

started: 08/26/11 8:56 am | updated: 08/26/11 8:56 am
Arlene Ackerman is speaking out in interviews this week with Education Week, Fox 29 and WURD-AM.

On WURD-AM, she said Mayor Nutter forced the SRC to get rid of her after she wouldn't "play politics" on funding for full-day kindergarten.

She also told Education Week that the SRC put her on its hit list when she refused to support an unnamed politician who wanted her to back a bid by Foundations Inc. to run Martin Luther King High School as a charter.
