news chase

    Good morning, Feeders! Don’t forget your umbrellas; we’re in for some rain and possible flooding — which we’ll bring you a story on later.

    Tom MacDonald is looking beyond the rivers to see what type of flooding is expected from local creeks and how nearby residents are preparing. He’s also checking in on the City Council meeting and working on a couple items for the weekend.

    Lizz Fiedler is already out at a meeting with an assistant district attorney, and she’ll bring us more from the Archdiocese later today.

    Jen Howard is talking some experts about Phliadelphia’s population change and what contributed to it. Think bodegas, retirement community and tight jeans.

    Peter Crimmins is following a few things today, including some software that quantifies the value of trees in the region. They’re more than just pretty green sun umbrellas, folks.

    Maiken Scott is tacking Pa. Gov. Tom Corbett’s budget plan to look at mental health care cuts, as well as a sort of mental health reactionary toolkit for people with friends and family members who may have a mental illness.

    Take to the Feed, readers, to tell us what caught your attention, what you want to see more of and what you think we’re missing.
