L&I clears way for deli case at food market
After a tumultuous week, Jennifer Zoga was able to put to rest her concerns over a recent citation from the Department of Licenses and Inspections. Zoga, through her landlord’s attorney, applied for and received the proper permit to operate her deli case.
“I’m pleased that it was solved,” Zoga said, “and that it was not as complicated as it once seemed.”
Zoga’s attorney filed an application with L&I last week for a permit to have in her store a deli case offering prepared foods made off-site and sliced deli meats. The permit was approved 24 hours later.
LIFT OFF Christ Ascension Lutheran Church preschoolers (from left) Ana Clark, Nicholas Gabriel-Yingling, Pre-K Teacher Kevin O’Hara, Willa Burns, and Will Doliner celebrated the newly constructed entrance to its parish hall last Friday morning, March 19. Children, parents, teachers and parishioners marked the project’s completion with a parade up the ramp and through the new front door. Some of the older children at the center cut the ceremonial ribbon. The accessible entrance serves both the congregation and its childcare center at 8300 Germantown Ave. Over several months contractors built the ramp, installed railings and replaced two narrow swinging doors with one solid door. Because the city deemed the congregation’s property historically significant in 1980, the new construction matches the look of the existing buildings. The ramp is faced with Wissahickon schist; anddistinctive hardware from the parish hall’s old doors was reused on the new door.

A quintessential Chestnut Hill family
Gigi Glendinning: animal rescuer extraordinaire
You might say that Gigi Glendinning, 42, is a member of a quintessential Chestnut Hill family. She and her brother, Andrew (now a Lafayette Hill contractor with three children); her sister, Ellen (now a freelance accountant in Lafayette Hill with two children); and her brother, Bruce (now a regional manager for Prudential Fox and Roach, living in Flourtown with two children); all grew up in Chestnut Hill with their mom, Sandra, now a resident of The Hill at Whitemarsh; and their late father, Robert, a prominent realtor with an office on Evergreen Avenue (and frequent contributor to the Local).
The big squeeze on taxpayers
It’s hard to believe that the debate over tax plans in Philadelphia City Hall is real.
One of the leading ideas floated by the Mayor’s office has been a tax on soda. “A what?” you might ask. A sugary soda tax. Yup. That’s a real idea. $.02 per ounce.
In a story on the issue in the Philadelphia Inquirer last week, City Councilman Bill Greenlee questioned Philadelphia Health Commissioner Donald Schwartz, M.D.
