    Fishtown man returns from Trail of Tears journey, research looks at trends in ocean injuries

    Good morning, Feeders! While you were spending your summer by the pool and down the Shore, one Fishtown man walked 2,000 miles along the Trail of Tears. Lizz Fiedler will have more on his journey before tonight’s celebration at Penn Treaty Park.

    Lizz will also look at the latest developments in Camden County’s study of police regionalization, and the logistics behind setting up a county-wide force.

    Carolyn Beeler will talk to University of Delaware researchers who’ve been studying ocean injuries. Turns out the danger isn’t always in the deepest of waters. She’s also looking into the enforcement of commercial recycling in Philadelphia and how it compares with residential rates.

    Peter Crimmins and Kim Paynter are heading to Schwenksville today to gear up for the Philadelphia Folk Fest. We’ll learn about how the fesitval has evolved over the last 50 years.

    As one man returns from a journey to Fishtown, another continues his. Read about an East Falls man who’s finishing up a 3,000 bike journey to raise awareness for traumatic brain injuries.

    We’ll have those stories and more, plus coverage from the School Reform Commission meeting today, so stick close.
