Stories we’re chasing today at WHYY

    Happy Friday, Feeders! Things are a bit quiet around City Hall, but we’ve got plenty of other interesting stories coming your way today.

     

    Lizz Fiedler and Kim Paynter are in Camden today to talk to a group of people that’s trying to revitalize east Camden.

    Tom MacDonald is checking out a few things for us, including the Convention Center report, the ATM scanning fraud in Norristown and a proposal for a “no quack” zone that residents west of City Hall want to impose on the duck tours. As Tom ponders, “Will they de-quack every kid who has a quacker?” Sounds traumatizing to young tourists.

    Shai Ben-Yaacov hopes to talk to Sister Mary Scullion, who’s quit the city’s ethics agency.

    Peter Crimmins is finishing up his story on jazz portraits of the Civil War. He may also cover a mathematician from Cornell who’s coming in today to crochet a hyperbolic plane.

    Carolyn Beeler wants to talk to someone from the Pa. Clinical Schools. The Chester County juvenile facility announced it will close in March, but few other details have been released. She’ll also be at the Please Touch Museum at 10 a.m. for the debut of its Access ABILITY exhibit.

    Feed the Feed to tell us what you’re most interested in on this snowy Friday.
