Here’s a look at what you may have missed:
State Rep. Dwight Evans has represented Philadelphians in Harrisburg for more than three decades. He’s dedicated a lot of hours to improving West Oak Lane, the heart of his district, and has run for governor and mayor. Now, he’s written a book detailing his life in politics. Check out Aaron Moselle’s story for more details.
Since graduating from Germantown Friends School, Dan Sterling has had his hands in a number of noteworthy projects. South Park, The Daily Show and the King of Hill are just some of the shows he’s worked on. He also just finished production on his first feature film. Check out Matt Grady’s story for more details.
Ken Weinstein has been a major player in Northwest Philadelphia’s real estate scene for some time now. Recently, though, he’s taken on some larger, more visible projects. Two in particular — one in Mt. Airy and one in Germantown — are certainly worth keeping an eye on in the New Year. Check out Alan Jaffe’s story to learn more.
In his Mt. Airy basement, Birck Cox creates anatomical images for textbooks and medical journals using a combination of brush strokes and mouse clicks. The Northwest Philadelphia resident helps draw up new inventions for medical device companies. Check out Carolyn Beeler’s story for more details.
