Memorials mark 9/11 impact, City Council holds redistricting hearing

    Good morning, Feeders! We’re diving right into the post-holiday week with teacher contracts, a sentencing and redistricting.

    Tom MacDonald is in West Philadelphia where Mayor Michael Nutter is helping to kick off the first day of school. Then he’ll have the latest on contract negotiations (or lack thereof) between Catholic high school teachers and the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.

    Speaking of the diocese, Lizz Fiedler will get a closer look at the city’s new archbishop, Charles Chaput. Then she’ll go to tonight’s City Council redistricting hearing.

    At that meeting, NewsWorks will present the winning maps compiled by Philadelphia residents who have a vision for the councilmanic map.

    Peter Crimmins and Nat Hamilton will have a package for us on the area’s 9/11 memorials. Stay tuned for more details on the local monuments constructed from World Trade Center steel.

    We’ll have those stories and more today, including tales from the first day back to school and sentences in the Danieal Kelly case.
