A shooting, at about 2:45 a.m. Friday morning August 3rd, inside an apartment in the 1500 block of Foulkrod left a 32-year-old man with a gunshot wound to the side and a 31-year-old man shot in the thigh. Both were taken to Temple University where their conditions were listed as stable.
The gunman fled the scene and has not been located.
Maybe it was a late night scrabble game that went bad. Frankford intellectuals can be hot tempered.
We had a comment on one of the stories about the East Frankford Civic Association asking if there might be more notice about their upcoming meetings. This is an open invitation to any community group to send me your meeting notices for inclusion on our community calender. Email me for information and I will tell you what we can do. Greater participation will lead to greater effectiveness. Civics, churches, blocks all are welcome.
The Butch Ballard Trio will be performing this Saturday, the 21st., from 7PM – 11PM
- Italian Wedding Soup
- Empanada Duo (Shrimp/Beef)
- Tofu Tostada served with Vegetarian Refried Black Beans
- Pistachio Chicken with Rabe and a Risotto Pesto Patty
A report on the recent meeting of the East Frankford Civic Association is in the Northeast Times this week. Al Taubenberger, Republican party candidate for mayor, attended the meeting. Also, an interesting zoning issue for a building on Penn Street. The Civic will support the variance. Read the entire story here: http://www.northeasttimes.com/2007/0719/frankford.html
