Stories we’re chasing today at WHYY (correction)

    Good morning, freezing Feeders! No better way to start your week than with below-average temperatures. Here’s a run down of a few our stories on tap for today.

     

    Tom MacDonald and Dave Davies are looking into the possibilities for the City Council president race. Since current President Anna Verna likely won’t seek re-election, who’s in line to lead the pack?

    A report shows 60 percent of police departments in the country are facing layoffs in 2011. Lizz Fiedler is looking further into this to determine which areas of the nation will be hit hardest, and what the numbers mean for our region.

    Jen Howard is checking in on the homeless census to see how it’s done and who participates. What happens during a code blue when the homeless aren’t outside, and are those in shelters counted?

    Peter Crimmins hopes to catch up with Elizabeth Osborne. The Northern Liberties artist and descendant of Ben Franklin Bridge architect Paul Cret is retiring from her teaching role at PAFA.

    Carolyn Beeler  hopes to get more details in the CHOP/Virtua partnership and what it means for patient services.

    Correction: An earlier version of this post stated Elizabeth Osborne will retire from painting. NewsWorks regrets the error.
