NewsWorks Tonight: a tax-delinquent developer, shady mayoral campaign fundraising, and remembering Arlene Ackerman

    Happy Monday, folks. The workday is almost over. Unwind with us on NewsWorks Tonight at 6 p.m. on WHYY, 90.9 FM, to hear these stories:

    Elizabeth Fiedler and Holly Otterbein are taking a look at high-profile tax-delinquent developer in Philadelphia. If you’ve listened to NewsWorks Tonight and spent any time on this site, you’ve probably heard of this person.

    Dave Davies explains how potential Philadelphia mayoral candidates can take donations larger than the contribution limits. (Hint: They have to spend the money before they declare they’re running.)

    The Public School Notebook’s Dale Mezzacappa visits us in studio to talk about the legacy of the late Arlene Ackerman. She died of pancreatic cancer on Saturday at the age of 66.

    And astronomer Derrick Pitts joins us for Sky Talk to tell us why we should remember American astronomer, rocket scientist and telescope builder Clyde Tombaugh.
