Hello, everybody! I’m back with your fresh edition of the Philadelphia Daily. Let’s get this Wednesday started off right, with a quick review of the most important things happening in town.
First, today’s weather:
Mostly sunny. High: 86 Low: 69.
📢 I’m looking for business owners and marketers in Philadelphia who want to build awareness, connect with customers and increase sales.
I have a limited number of sponsorships available to introduce our Philadelphia Daily readers to local businesses they need to know about. If that’s you, then I invite you to learn more and secure your spot now.
Here are the top stories today in Philadelphia:
- North Philly is being sprayed for mosquitoes this morning. The effort is a yearly measure to prevent spread of diseases like West Nile Virus. To help, you can clean up around your home by getting rid of tin cans, plastic containers or other items that collect rainwater; dispose of or drain discarded tires on your property; and clean and chlorinate your swimming pool. See the full list of helpful advice, click the link. (Philadelphia Patch)
- Two attorneys have been charged with fraud against their firm. The two lawyers are facing up to 40 yeras in prison where they defrauded their firm out of nearly $320,000. Between 2018 and 2020, the two would keep client fees that were earmarked for the firm, which was known at the time as Sacks Weston Diamond. (The Business Journals)
- Instant karma? According to police, an off-duty corrections officer was carjacked when he opened fire on the suspect. The officer had just left a friend’s house when he was carjacked on the 200 block of East Roosevelt Boulevard late on Monday. The car was found about 20 to 25 minutes later with blood inside the driver’s seat, while the alleged carjacker showed up at Temple University Hospital with gunshot wounds to both arms. (WPVI-TV)
