Rehashing first weekend of curfew enforcement, looking at Philly’s green wave

    Good morning, Feeders! Here’s a nice Monday for ya: an Egg Harbor fisherman caught an alligator over the weekend. We’re looking into that, in addition to our bigger stories for today.

    Lizz Fiedler is following up on the first weekend of Philadelphia’s curfew enforcement and flashmob prevention. She’ll also talk to some folks about teenagers making a positive difference in Philadelphia.

    Lizz will also have more details about a police office in Chester who’s gained support from the city after shooting a 21-year-old. The officer has gotten mixed reviews from Mayor Wendell Butler.

    Carolyn Beeler is looking for zombies as we speak. She’s at this morning’s zombie preparedness attack, similar to the one the CDC staged earlier this summer. Look for details on that later, plus more information on a Bucks County wood embargo.

    Peter Crimmins is checking out the city’s green wave — a series of traffic lights designed to keep cars and bikes moving. He’ll also give us a preview of the opening of a new coffee shop/recording studio/music venue in Center City.

    Look for those stories and more today, and don’t forget to Feed the Feed to ask us questions about the news chase. You might find the answer right here.
