Girard Avenue Bridge will get a makeover, Pa. will get a sudden cardiac arrest law

    Good morning, Feeders, and welcome back from a long weekend!

    Tom MacDonald is back in City Hall today to hear what Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds Brown has to say about women’s presence on city executive boards.

    After that, he’ll have a construction update for us on the Girard Avenue Bridge and what riverwards residents and I-95 users can expect in the coming year.
    Emma Jacobs will have more details on a Penn scholarship that’s going unused in Camden.

    While Lizz Fiedler takes a closer look at lawyers’ decision to allow Msgr. William Lynn to testify in the priest-abuse trial, Carolyn Beeler will share the details on a soon-to-be law in Pennsylvania meant to prevent sudden cardiac arrest deaths in children.

    Carolyn will also hear more from a Drexel professor studying leatherback turtles and how climate changes could affect the population.

    And Peter Crimmins is working on a story about an effort to bring back an old Philadelphia liquor.

    Before all that, be sure to check out Brian Hickey’s story on a Germantown community clean-up site that’s become a crime scene.
