Obama comes to Bucks County, Archdiocese faces another suit

    Good morning, Feeders! Obama’s in town, the cherry blossoms are blooming and the city budget hearings just keep on going.  Should be a promising hump day.

    Susan Philips is heading to Bucks County, where Obama is stopping at the Gamesa wind turbine facility to talk about his energy security plans.

    Budget hearings continue today in Philadelphia. Parks & Rec, the City Commissioner, Atwater Kent Museum and the Free Library are all tapped for meetings, followed by public comment at 5:30 p.m. Tom MacDonald will fill us in on what we need to know.

    Lawyers will appear in court today to file a wrongful death suit against the Archdiocese of Philadelphia on behalf of a Bucks County man who allegedly committed suicide after childhood abuse by a priest. Lizz Fiedler will reach out for more details.

    Mayor Nutter will be at Clara Barton School in Juniata today to declare “Child Abuse Prevention Month” in Philadelphia. Karen O’Toole will bring us more details on that what entails.

    There some interesting things happening in the Arts & Culture world, including a Japanese photography exhibit at Gallery 339 and a local guy who’s spending the month at the mercy of Facebook. Peter Crimmins will have more for us on both.
