Council looks at three big issues, Gosnell co-defendants in court

    Good morning, Feeders! City Council is taking up three big issues today, which means Tom MacDonald will be busy. On tap in chambers: a vote on the curfew change, red-light cameras for two Far Northeast intersections and the viaduct park in North Chinatown/Callowhill.

    While Tom gets details on those, Lizz Fiedler will wrap up her story from yesterday on the restaurants donating their leftovers to Occupy Philly.

    Taunya English will have the latest on the Kermit Gosnell case. Two of the defendants from his West Philadelphia abortion clinic are expected to plead guilty today.

    Got student loans? An announcement from President Barack Obama yesterday will be a game-changer for some post-grads. Jen Howard will explain, and we’ll hear from people whose wallets will be hit a little less hard once the changes are implemented.

    The site of the former Borders on Germantown Avenue in Chestnut Hill has been empty for almost two years. Not for much longer, though. The new tenant is daycare center Children of America.

    We have those stories and more today, so stick close.
