Transit Workers Union Local 234 head Willie Brown plans to call a news conference Monday at 4 p.m. to discuss the union workers’ dissatisfaction with SEPTA’s offer. The primary sticking points are health care and pensions. “Our team has been working to reach an agreement that our members deserve,” Brown said in a statement. “But so far, management has been unwilling to reach a reasonable compromise on pensions, health care and other issues…

Specifically, during that half hour of Eyewitness News, there were 11 political commercials — and zero political stories. “Instead of an all-news channel for news junkies, a channel for ad junkies!” Penn’s Kathleen Hall Jameson told the Foundation.

    Who is standing up for good teachers and poor children in the School District of Philadelphia? If you guessed “the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers,” you’d be wrong. That’s why my colleagues and I went into the midst of 3,000 PFT protesters last week to talk about how PFT leaders are keeping millions of dollars from the classroom and have been harming poor children and high-performing teachers for years. We explained how PFT leaders are blocking education reforms that will dramatically improve the SDP for both educators and kids alike. To say things got heated would be an…

    By Dan Wing PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A Philadelphia man has been found guilty of assaulting a police officer and other related offenses for a police-involved shooting in Delaware County in September of 2013. Authorities say it all started with a traffic stop on Chester Pike in Sharon Hill. As an officer asked 32-year old Brandon Schonfeld to step out of his vehicle, Schonfeld hit the officer with the door, before elbowing him and running away. The officer gave chase across three lanes of traffic, and then north on Barker Avenue, where Schonfeld pulled out a gun, and took aim at the officer.

None of this would offend the senses if they weren’t so careless, perilous and pompous about it. Word was in the ’70s that the…

    24 Oct 2014 | 10:41 am
    Since the NFL is already carving "Denver Broncos" into this season's Lombardi Trophy, there's probably no use in checking the Super Bowl odds almost halfway through the season. But let's do so anyway, for kicks. It's hard to figure out who the second-best team in the NFL is. Which means that there should be value in the Super Bowl odds, just in case the Broncos blow it in the playoffs again (I know, hard to imagine). Here are the odds for every semi-legitimate contender (the Raiders are 3000-to-1, if you feel like setting your money on fire), from Bovada via OddsShark.com , before Thursday's…

Hefner has made a career out of the sort of images that you wouldn’t want your boss, girlfriend, mother, or fellow straphanger to catch you looking at, and yet, Hef still manages to come across as a gentleman at every turn. Of course, there is something slightly off about a nearly-ninety year old man that wears robes in public and is married…
