Dilworth ceremony held indoors, drug approved for advanced kidney disease

    Good morning, Feeders!

    Expect details later from Lizz Fiedler, who is in court for what’s expected to be the last hearing before the trial against Monsignor William Lynn. Lynn is accused of relocating Philadelphia parish priests to help cover up child sexual abuse.

    Emma Jacobs is headed to City Hall. The Dilworth Plaza renovation might be an outside project, but today’s groundbreaking is indoors. Perhaps to avoid to Occupy Philly crowd that’s gathered on the plaza?
    Taunya English will have more details on a new drug for advanced kidney failure, and more information on what kidney treatments look like these days.

    Carolyn Beeler will preview a discussion taking place Wednesday night. Two groups raced to discover the South Pole. One got there first, but who really contributed more? She’ll have the details on the trek and what it meant for research at the pole.
