    Now that the leftovers have been picked clean and retailer doors have been busted, it’s back to the grind.  Here’s what we’re grinding out in the WHYY newsroom:

    Tom MacDonald will stop by a Philadelphia council hearing on electronic billboards.  You may remember one such proposed sign has raised the hackles of nearby residents.

    Dave Davies will fact check Mayor Nutter’s Meet the Press appearance yesterday, when he claimed Philadelphia is well on its way to economic recovery.

    Carolyn Beeler will report on more trouble for Johnson and Johnson, and a healthcare plan that preserves benefits for military retirees.

    Lizz Fiedler is reaching out to the North Philly Blackhawks football team.  The team is trying to raise money for its trip to the Pop Warner Superbowl.

    And Peter Crimmins reports on a copy of the Emancipation Proclaimation originally sold in Philadelphia that could fetch one and a half milion dollars at auction later this month.

    That’s all for now, but stay with the feed for updates on these and other stories throughout the day.
