    Tom MacDonald profiles the Democractic incumbents in Philadelphia’s crowded city council race. StateImpact Pennsylvania’s Marie Cusick reports on the scientists and state foresters who are trying to erase the scars left by natural gas drilling in Pennsylvania. NewsWorks Tonight Host Dave Heller talks with Deborah Cramer, author of the book “The Narrow Edge: A Tiny Bird, an Ancient Crab, and an Epic Journey.” They discuss how the fate of migrating redknots is tied to horseshoe crabs.
