Acme loses the top spot to Shop Rite in supermarket sales. This according to an annual survey published by Food Trade News.

ShopRite, ringing up $1.7 billion in sales across the eight-county Philadelphia region, grabbed the top spot from Acme. Acme has struggled to cut costs and has been shutting down underperforming stores and recently laid off 900 part-time employees.

Acme's sales were $1.6 billion, a drop from $1.8 billion a year earlier.

Philadelphia School District Budget: $35 million SHORT
  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

Dog owners in Delaware County are being watched. Get caught without the $6 dog license and you could get fined $300.

Officials estimate there are 141,000 dogs living in Delaware County, yet less than 6,000 are licensed.

In 2007, after state wardens went through dog parks... Read More

Day 3 Dave Matthews Band Caravan Time to Wrap it up and Bring it on Home
  by: iradioal - Philadelphia, PA
started: 06/27/11 2:43 am | updated: 06/27/11 3:28 pm
Day 3, Sunday, was again another perfect day in Atlantic City. We got away with three beautiful days in a row with no rain and no oppressive heat. The location helps, right in the inter-coastal waterway, so there's a cool breeze from the water. Today's crowd was noticeably smaller than yesterday's closer to Friday's attendance.

Alright, let me run through some of the music. I unfortunately was running late and missed Alberta Cross and Dawes, but I heard they both had decent sets.... Read More

Day 2 Dave Matthews Band Caravan Worldly Music Decends
  by: iradioal - Philadelphia, PA
started: 06/26/11 2:35 am | updated: 06/27/11 3:27 pm
Saturday, Day 2, has came and went on Bader field and it was another perfect day. Slightly cooler and less windy than Friday, but couldn't have ordered up a better sky. The crowd was definitely much larger and earlier arriving that Friday, but that was expected as the weekend is in full swing.

That large crowd also had to keep moving back and forth all day. from one stage to the next like they were attached in the head, from Dave & Tim, to Thievery Corporation, then back to... Read More

started: 06/25/11 2:36 am | updated: 06/27/11 3:26 pm
The first day of the 3 day Caravan festival has completed down in Atlantic City. Everyone here was very fortunate that none of the scattered strong thunderstorms in the rest area came through and hit Bader Field, we were all left dry, albeit very dirty and dusty. The forecast for the rest of the weekend looks clear and slightly cooler as well, which will be perfect.

The crowds were light early on, probably being a Friday (weekday) but filled in as the day progressed. This weekend... Read More

NJ Gov. Christie has Tips For Obama/Washington
  by: Rebel - Havertown, PA
started: 06/27/11 12:21 pm | updated: 06/27/11 12:21 pm
NJ Gov. Christie nationalized his victory on pensions and health benefits on NBC's Meet the Press this week, saying President Obama's Washington should model itself on Christie's New Jersey.

Christie said Obama needed to deal directly with congressional leaders, just as Christie sat with Democratic legislative leaders to hammer out an agreement that forces public workers to pay more for pensions and health benefits.

Christie said: "If you're the executive, you've... Read More
