For the Nutter administration, last Wednesday’s ceremonial warehouse demolition on North Eighth Street was an opportunity to tout the new “proactive” partnership between the city’s Fire Department and Department of Licenses and Inspection in dealing with large, vacant and dangerous properties.

A 46-year-old woman was critically injured when she was run over by her own car late Friday afternoon outside the Klein JCC on Jamison Avenue near Red Lion Road, police said.
A new Wawa with gas pumps opened at Grant Avenue and Academy Road. To celebrate, a ribbon-cutting presentation was held with local council members. A hoagie-building contest was held between the Fire Department’s Ladder 31 and the Police Department’s 8th district. The police department won, making 53 hoagies in three minutes.
Engine 58 and Ladder 34 rushed down the 15000 block of Kovats Drive early Wednesday evening and firefighters went right to work.
