The Philadelphia school district still facing a $600 million dollar budget gap has many wondering about the 18 day district wide summer school program, which costs $18 million dollars.

Some classrooms have had full attendance, while others, have had minimal to no students showing up. Teachers are sitting in empty classrooms with nothing to do and being paid.

Most of the $18 million pays for teacher salaries for the 18 days.

The district had planned... Read More

The Phillies head into the All Star break with the best record in baseball. Five Phillies were named All Stars, but it appears Polanco and Victorino will pass and use the time to recover from injuries. After pitching Sunday in the first half finale, Hamels may skip the All Star game as well. Despite a growing list of players on and off the disabled list, the Phillies are the best team in baseball. As this is shaping up to be the year of the pitcher, the Phillies investment in arms is paying... Read More

The NJ state's drug testing policy for police will be changed to allow, but not require, police departments to test officers for steroids, leaving police chiefs with the decision of whether to perform drug tests.

Under the current policy, steroids are not on the list of drugs that can be tested….and these tests cost the state money.

Drug tests for muscle-building drugs must be sent out of state for analysis, at a cost of hundreds of dollars per test. On the... Read More
