Philadelphia announces plans to become a no-kill city with its animal shelters. We remember community activist and Scoop newspaper publisher Sonny Driver, who passed away at age 91. A North Philadelphia school transforms its outdoor space from a site of tragedy into a place of beauty. And the national tour of Les Miserables comes to town with a native Philadelphian in a leading role.
