Philadelphia Loves Kickball

Kickball plays like softball's demented little brother. The pitcher rolls a large, bouncy ball toward a kicker, rather than a batter. When the ball is kicked into play, fielders... Read More

  by: Rebel - Havertown, PA
started: 06/30/11 11:26 am | updated: 06/30/11 11:26 am
The school district's budget problems are not over.

The state Legislature restored only $22 million from the nearly $300 million that Gov. Corbett slashed.

Philadelphia district and city officials hoped that City Council's vote to raise property taxes by nearly 4 percent might have led to more cash from the state.

City Council last week approved the 3.85 percent, one-year property-tax hike, and parking-meter rates were also increased, to send an... Read More
