Stories we’re chasing today at WHYY

    It’s Friday! And it’s Wing Bowl day! We’re sure you’re busy watching people stuff their faces with food, but just in case you’re not, here’s a bit of other news for you.

    Lizz Fiedler is checking in with L&I, who’s got at least one unshoveled property, and PHA, who only shovels its residences if someone requests the agency to do so. Sounds effective. You can look for that story Monday.

    Later, Lizz will attend a press conference on the Super Bowl and abuse by District Attorney Seth Williams.

    Shain Ben-Yaacov is reviewing the Florida gun loophole, which passed Philadelphia City Council yesterday. He’ll see what, if any, significant effects this can have on gun regulation in the city.

    Jen Howard is making some calls to Bensalem, where a ban on cell phone use while driving takes effect today.

    Taunya English is working on a feature for Monday about breast feeding-friendly hospitals in Delaware.

    Carolyn Beeler will look at NJ Gov. Chris Christie’s veto of a fertilizer-limiting bill, which was met with much opposition. She’ll also review a study that shows first-year women doctors earn about $17,000 less than their male counterparts. Carolyn will look for a local connection and see if the study has some merit.

    Peter Crimmins is at the Wing Bowl.
