Election challenge deadline looms, mural gets a facelift

    Good morning, Feeders! If you began the day with a SEPTA delay, it only gets better from there. We’re bringing you the daily dish from City Hall, more updates from the Archdiocese and plenty of other news in between.

    Tom MacDonald is checking in on DROP suits against council members Frank Rizzo and Marian Tasco. The deadline to challenge candidates for the next election is looming; doesn’t look like Milton Street will be challenged.

    Lizz Fiedler will talk today with survivors of priest abuse and how their parishes are handling the abuse allegations. She’s also following up on the 10th homicide in Camden. The number is slightly higher than this time last year, but has the potential to get worse considering the recent police layoffs.

    Peter Crimmins will be at Eastern State Penitentiary today and tomorrow as the prison prepares to remove and restore a mural painted by inmates. Peter is also searching for the latest on plans to expand the central branch of the Free Library of Philadelphia.

    Maiken Scott is checking in with social scientists who are asking for regulation on Wikipedia. Since so many people use the publicly edited site as a source for medical information, groups want to make sure the information is accurate. Maiken is also working on a couple features for later this week, including one about gun laws for people with mental illnesses.
