news chase

    Good morning, Feeders!

    As we slide into a sunny weekend, Lizz Fiedler is headed to Ocean City, N.J. That’s where a mansion is going up for absolute auction. We’ll find out just what this house has to offer, why the owners were unable to sell and how much some hopeful owners expect to bid.
    Tom MacDonald and Peter Crimmins are on the Ben Franklin Parkway. They’ll be there as the Barnes Foundation’s Philadelphia doors open for the first time.

    Emma Jacobs is checking in with the Philadelphia colleges on the nation’s list of most dangerous campuses. All our Barnes coverage can be found here. She’ll also bring us update on the story from the Colwyn police department about an officer arrested for his involvement in an alleged tasering incident.

    Carolyn Beeler is working on a story for Monday. But today, she’ll be in Love Park as city officials declare May “Hepatitis B Awareness Month.” Find out why the resolution is especially meaningful to Philadelphia.

    And don’t miss this story today — as part of our partnership with the Public School Notebook, we investigate Philadelphia students’ pipeline to college.
