Other Thursday news

Almost out of time, so can't do these stories justice:
  1. The school district is considering its first public boarding school in South Philly.

  2. A recent design competition looked at environmentally efficient public housing and generated some promising ideas...

  3. The city is running a pilot program for shoring up anti-terrorist security at 30th St. Station. (odd bit: federal air marshalls were involved.)

  4. Two developers are warring over plans for a lot at Chestnut and 15th.

  5. Last, Ray Murphy tells a story in which city services actually work, and says that Street doesn't get credit for the kind of everyday things that city dwellers most appreciate.
