Newschase

    Another bone chilling morning, another newschase.  Here’s what we’ve got:

    Tom MacDonald will attend the confirmation of three members of the city Ethics Board, along with a Blue-Ribbon panel on the future of Catholic education in Philadelphia.  He’ll also follow up on the shakeup at a South Philadelphia liquor warehouse, whose employees were dismissed after allegations of financial irregularities.

    Lizz Fiedler will chase what may be the latest strike by the so-called Kensington strangler.  Carolyn Beeler is also on the story.  She’ll talk to forensics experts about what law enforcement officials do when dealing with a possible serial offender.  Carolyn will also attend a rally against Independence Blue Cross later in Philadelphia.

    Also on the Health and Science Desk, Meggan Kole will examine a Temple video project featuring Diabetes sufferers, and a behavioral health look at grieving and loss around the holidays.

    Susan Phillips will report on members of the Corbett transition team who may have ties to lobbying groups for natural gas drilling.

    Meanwhile, Megan Pinto will look into reports of bullying at Roxborough High School.  If you have any information about the incident, contact Megan at mpinto@whyy.org.

    And at the Arts and Culture Desk, Peter Crimmins will report on the cross section of historic buildings and the foreclosure crisis.

    That’s all for now.  Stay with the Feed for more updates throughout the day.
