Spring is upon us, and soon plants will start thriving again at the South Philadelphia High School student garden. The students at the site are very fortunate to grow their own fresh fruits and vegetables that they can take home and cook, but the city’s other schools aren’t as lucky.
I am very happy and thrilled that South Philly Review Managing Editor Joe Myers has won two national awards for writing from The Local Media Association: A first place headline honor and a second place honor: local coverage of school district issues.
It is so frustrating to read the article on spring cleanups, (“Let the spring cleanups begin,” March 27) which I’m reading at this very moment. I reside on the 600 block of Morris Street, an absolutely horrendously filthy dirty block as far as trash strewn in the streets.
