Ocean County barrier islands re-open, trial to start for Philly priest and teacher

    Good morning, Feeders, and welcome to a new week!

    Tom MacDonald will start us off with two very different stories about Ocean County’s barrier islands and the next trial in the Philadelphia priest-abuse case. He’ll have the latest for us as jury selection begins in the trials of former teacher Bernard Shero and Rev. Charles Engelhardt.


    Taunya English is checking out a study on space. She’ll also have a story for us on what hospitals can potentially learn from airlines in terms of safety.
