Hole Found in US Airways Plane From PHL

Plus the Phillies get a fancier scoreboard (winning! in high-def), some think the school district should consider hiring a safety advocate, Milton Street's tax plan, and more of what Philly's talking about this morning

Call for New School District Violence Watchdog. Two state reps held a press conference yesterday calling for the position of “safe schools advocate” to be filled. There’s been no one in the office for the last 18 months, so parents and students have had to file complaints with an official in Cumberland County. Why? Funding or politics, depending on who you believe. [Inquirer]

Citizens Bank Park’s New, Fancy Scoreboard. The 7,400-square-foot high-def screen makes its debut in front of Phillies fans at the Park tonight during the exhibition game against Pittsburgh. Note to fans: There’s a live game on the field! [CBS 3]

Milton Street’s Tax Bill. He owes more than $1 million to the IRS, the state of NJ and the City of Philadelphia. So, wait, if we elect him to mayor and garnish his wages … yes, this might be the only way the city gets its due. Well played, Mr. Street. Well played. [Daily News]

There’s a Hole in the Plane, Dear Liza. Er, then fix it, dear Henry? A US Airways plane flew from Philadelphia to Charlotte, where it was discovered there was a hole in the plane. No word yet on how it got there, or if it was there when the flight took off from PHL. [NBC 10]

“Father” of the Internet and Philadelphian Dies. Paul Baran grew up here and got a degree in electrical engineering from Drexel before going on to make technological advances that helped start the Internet and thwart plane hijackers. He was also inducted into the Inventors Hall of Fame. He was 84 and died at home in California. [LA Times]

Philadelphia-Set TV Show Premieres Tonight. ABC launches Body of Proof, about a medical examiner played by Dana Delaney, tonight on ABC. The show’s setting is Philadelphia, and Delaney’s character works at a local hospital. They film it in Providence, Rhode Island (head-scratcher). And it’s not that they didn’t try to shoot here (head-imploder). [Inquirer]

Philly Homes to Go Back on Auction Block. Foreclosure sales were put on pause a few months ago to allow homeowners behind on mortgage payments to get federal aid, which never arrived. Now the city’s free to resume kicking people out of their houses. [Newsworks]
