Wonderful story out of Doverdale: How lacrosse is uniting Doverdale youth, community leaders.

Maciarello had the idea of bringing a new sport to the Doverdale playground that he and his family have participated in for several years – lacrosse. “That had a profound effect on this community,” said Maciarello, now a Wicomico County Circuit Court judge, regarding the murder. “I rode in police cars until about 3 a.m., and I remember seeing young men still in the park grieving over that senseless act of violence. As the state’s attorney, I always tried to work as a problem solver and come up with strategies to reduce crime in the area." Maciarello saw a need for youth mentoring throughout the community, and given his background and experience as a leader, the judge believed he knew what was needed to help the kids of Doverdale. A former lacrosse player with two sons who play the sport, Maciarello saw the opportunity as a chance to teach the youth of Doverdale, specifically middle schoolers, a new skill while providing them a safe and secure place to go once school let out. Though basketball dominated the daily activity at the playground, many were quick to give lacrosse – a game several had never played – a chance to change the standard routine of doing the same expected thing day after day.

What’s Up, Philly?

Philly now has a mural of a squirrel eating a SEPTA token.

Murals, squirrels and SEPTA tokens have long been ubiquitous around Philadelphia. Now, those three iconic parts of city life are brought together in a new art installation in North Philadelphia. As highlighted on the Streets Dept. blog, the just-installed mural at 2217 N. Hancock St. depicts a squirrel eating a SEPTA token. Artist Evan Lovett, who shared an in-progress shot of the mural earlier this week, told the site: "We wanted to paint something we see everyday, and we added the SEPTA token to tie it into the neighborhood and the EL."

This can’t be good: School Suddenly Finds Itself Covered In Dead Fish In Middle Of The Day – And No One Knows Why.

Something fishy happened this week at Stanford Avenue Elementary School in Oroville. A typical Tuesday took a turn for the weird just before noon when the campus was suddenly covered in dead fish. They were everywhere, all over the playground, in drinking fountains – and as one custodian discovered, even on the roof. School officials aren’t sure if it was some kind of prank or if it really rained fish. “My first concern was who was on the campus that we don’t know about,” said Principal Shannon Capshew. “But the campus supes didn’t see any adult, we were covering the whole time.”
