    Good morning, Feeders!

    Tom MacDonald will get more details for on Philadelphia’s contract with its firefighters. And Lizz Fiedler will explain the $3 billion GlaxoSmithKline settlement with several states and the feds. Where will that money go and what will it be used for?
    Carolyn Beeler will tell us about the confirmed cases of a rare staph infection in Delaware and how it differs from similar diseases. And in honor of July 4th, she and Kim Paynter teamed up to tell us about the science of fireworks.

    Peter Crimmins went behind the scenes this week with the Bucks County Playhouse as the curtains rose once again. We’ll hear all about that on NewsWorks Tonight, plus Ben Herold’s interview with Philly’s new schools superintendent, William Hite.
