Job Fair Aims To Employ Youth With Troubled Past

 (credit: Cherri Gregg) 

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Roughly 50 to 75 percent of ex-offenders in Philadelphia remain unemployed up to a year after their release. A North Philadelphia non-profit is working with the toughest of the group to employ the youth.
Getting a job is no easy task, but it can be especially hard when you are young and have a troubled past.
“I was a juvenile delinquent, as well as in DHS,” says 21-year-old, Nija Briscoe.

Oscar-winning actress Patty Duke dies at 69

Oscar-winning actress Patty Duke dies at 69

AP Photo
FILE - In this March 23, 2010 file photo, Academy and Emmy award-winning actress, Patty Duke appears during a news conference at the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills, Calif. Duke, who won an Oscar as a child at the start of an acting career that continued through her adulthood, died Tuesday, March 29, 2016, of sepsis from a ruptured intestine. She was 69.

NEW YORK (AP) -- Patty Duke, who as a teen won an Oscar for playing Helen Keller in "The Miracle Worker," then maintained a long career while battling personal demons, has died at the age of 69.

The actress died early Tuesday morning of sepsis from a ruptured intestine, according to her
agent, Mitchell Stubbs. She died in Coeur D'Alene, Idaho, where she had lived for the past quarter-century, according to Teri Weigel, the publicist for her son, actor Sean Astin.

Duke astonished audiences as the young deaf-and-blind Keller first on Broadway, then in the acclaimed 1962 film version, appearing in both alongside Anne Bancroft as Helen's teacher, Annie Sullivan (who won an Oscar of her won).

Then in 1963, Duke burst on the TV scene starring in her own sitcom, "The Patty Duke Show," which aired for three seasons. She played dual roles as identical cousins Kathy, "who's lived most everywhere, from Zanzibar to Barclay Square" while (according to the theme song) "Patty's only seen the sights a girl can see from Brooklyn Heights. What a crazy pair!"

In 2015, she would play twin roles again: as a pair of grandmas on an episode of "Liv and Maddie," a series on the Disney Channel.

"We're so grateful to her for living a life that generates that amount of compassion and feeling in others," Astin told The Associated Press in reflecting on the outpouring of sentiment from fans at the news of her death.

She had "really, really suffered" with her illness, Astin added. From late last week until early Tuesday morning, he said, "was a really, really, really hard process. It was hard for her, it was hard for the people who love her to help her...."

But throughout her life, she was "a warrior," he said. "You watch this 4-foot-10, tiny imp of a lady who's more powerful than the greatest military leaders in history."

Born Anna Marie Duke in the New York borough of Queens on Dec. 14, 1946, she had a difficult childhood with abusive parents. By 8 years old she was largely under the control of husband-and-wife talent managers who kept her busy on soap operas and advertising displays.

In the meantime, they supplied her with alcohol and prescription drugs, which accentuated the effects of her undiagnosed bipolar disorder.

In her 1988 memoir, "Call Me Anna," Duke wrote of her condition and the diagnosis she had gotten only six years earlier, and of the subsequent treatment that helped stabilize her life. The book became a 1990 TV film in which she starred, and she became an activist for mental health causes, helping to de-stigmatize bipolar disorder.

With the end of "The Patty Duke Show" in 1966, which left her stereotyped as not one, but two squeaky-clean teenagers, Duke attempted to leap into the nitty-grittiness of adulthood in the 1967 melodrama "Valley of the Dolls," in which she played a showbiz hopeful who falls prey to drug addiction, a broken marriage and shattered dreams.

The film, based on the best-selling Jacqueline Susann pulp novel, was critically slammed but a commercial sensation.

During her career she would win three Emmy Awards, for the TV film "My Sweet Charlie," the miniseries "Captains and the Kings" and the 1979 TV remake of "The Miracle Worker," in which Duke played Annie Sullivan with "Little House on the Prairie" actress Melissa Gilbert as Keller.

"I know she's in a better place. I will miss her every day but I will find comfort in the words of Helen Keller: 'The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart,'" Gilbert wrote in tribute.

In the 1980s, she starred in a trio of short-lived sitcoms: "It Takes Two," ''Karen's Song" and "Hail to the Chief," cast as the first female president of the United States.

"Her career ebbed and flowed," said Sean Astin, her son with her third husband, actor John Astin, "and sometimes she was stressed about it and sometimes she was at peace with it. And then she'd get to do something that she could sink her teeth into, that reminded her of what she was capable of."

In addition to her acting career, Duke served as the president of the Screen Actors Guild from 1985 to 1988.

She starred in several stage productions, including a return to Broadway in 2002 to play Aunt Eller in a revival of the musical "Oklahoma!"

By then, she already had spent a dozen years living in Idaho with her fourth husband, Michael Pearce (who survives her), seeking refuge from the clutter, noise and turmoil of big cities, and from the tumultuous life she had weathered in the past.

In describing the role of Aunt Eller, and perhaps herself, to The Associated Press, she said, "This is a woman who has had strife in life, made her peace with some of it and has come to the point of acceptance. Not giving up."

Ireland recalls 1916 Easter Rising against British rule

Ireland recalls 1916 Easter Rising against British rule

Thousands of soldiers march solemnly through the streets of Dublin, Ireland, Sunday, March 27, 2016. Thousands of soldiers marched solemnly Sunday through the crowded streets of Dublin to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Ireland's Easter Rising against Britain, a fateful rebellion that reduced parts of the capital to ruins and inspired the country's eventual independence.
  
DUBLIN (AP) -- Thousands of soldiers marched solemnly through the crowded streets of Dublin on Sunday to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Easter Rising against Britain, a fateful rebellion that reduced parts of the capital to ruins and fired the country's flame of independence.

The Easter parade through Dublin featured military ceremonies at key buildings seized in 1916, when about 1,200 rebels sought to ignite a popular revolt against Ireland's place in the United Kingdom.

The five-hour procession paused at noon outside the colonnaded General Post Office on O'Connell Street, the rebel headquarters a century ago, where commander Padraig Pearse formally launched the revolt by proclaiming to bemused Dubliners the creation of a "provisional" Republic of Ireland.

A soldier in today's Irish Defence Forces, Capt. Peter Kelleher, stood in front of the restored post office Sunday to read the full, florid text of Pearse's 1916 proclamation.

"In the name of God and of the dead generations from which she receives her old tradition of nationhood, Ireland, through us, summons her children to her flag and strikes for her freedom," Kelleher said to an audience that included Ireland's leaders and scores of grandchildren of the rebels.

Many donned their ancestors' Easter Rising bronze service medals, which Ireland issued in 1941 on the rebellion's 25th anniversary.

British forces, among them many Irishmen focused on fighting Germany in World War I, were caught off guard by the seizure of largely unguarded buildings in 1916. Most officers were attending horse races in the Irish countryside. But Britain quickly deployed army reinforcements who were cheered by some locals as they marched into Dublin. Artillery based at Trinity College and a gunboat on the River Liffey which bisects the city shelled the post office and other rebel strongholds, forcing their surrender within six days.

The fighting left nearly 500 dead, most of them civilians caught in the crossfire or shot - by both sides - as suspected looters. Some 126 British soldiers, 82 rebels and 17 police were slain.

Many Dubliners opposed the insurrection as an act of treason in a time of war, but public sentiment swiftly swung in the rebels' favor once a newly arrived British Army commander decided to execute Pearse and 14 other rebel leaders by firing squad in Dublin's Kilmainham Jail.

A 16th figure, Roger Casement, who days before the Easter Rising was caught trying to smuggle German weapons by sea to Ireland, was hanged inside a London prison.

In the rebellion's immediate wake, the poet W.B. Yeats reflected Ireland's conflicted feelings about how violent nationalism appeared to be hastening Ireland's journey to political freedom but at a debatable cost. 

His "Easter, 1916" poem, among the most quoted works in all of Irish literature, listed the names of executed Rising commanders and concluded that Ireland had "changed, changed utterly: A terrible beauty is born."

Easter Rising veterans led Ireland's 1919-21 war of independence, their ranks swelled by combat veterans returning to Ireland from World War I trenches. As the newly founded Irish Republican Army fought police and soldiers in the predominantly Catholic south, Protestants in northeast Ireland carved out a new U.K.-linked state of Northern Ireland.

A treaty accepted by most southern rebels established an Irish Free State in 1922 that grudgingly accepted the reality of the island's partition. The new Irish state survived a fratricidal 1922-23 civil war between IRA factions. Michael Collins' pro-treaty forces crushed IRA die-hards who, backed by Eamon de Valera, rejected the treaty because the new state was not fully independent of Britain. Both men had fought in the 1916 Rising.

Ireland remained neutral in World War II and declared itself a republic on Easter Monday 1949.

Ireland long has struggled to embrace Easter as its effective independence day, in part because the enemy camps from the Irish civil war forged the country's two dominant political parties: Fine Gael by allies of the slain IRA leader Collins; and de Valera's Fianna Fail party. Both parties claim to be the true defenders of the 1916 rebels' ideals.

Official unease with 1916's disputed legacy grew from the early 1970s as a new Belfast-based IRA launched a ruthless campaign to force Northern Ireland out of the U.K. and into the republic. This outlawed faction called itself the Provisional IRA and killed nearly 1,800 people before calling a 1997 cease-fire to support leaders of its revived Sinn Fein party, who today help govern Northern Ireland alongside British Protestant politicians.

In a sign of changing times, leaders of Fine Gael, Fianna Fail and Sinn Fein stood side by side at Sunday's events, including a ceremony inside Kilmainham Jail, where Pearse and other commanders were executed.

Sunday's commemorations are the centerpiece of an estimated 2,500 events nationwide this spring and summer reflecting on the uprising's legacy.

The anniversary date is imprecise, given that Easter falls on different dates each year and the 1916 rebellion actually started on Easter Monday - an official holiday in Ireland - not on the Sunday. The rebellion began April 24 and ended on April 29, 1916. The executions began four days later.

  The final answer of the NCAA Tournament is still a March mystery.

But in the Elite Eight, the answer is much more translucent — each region is represented by the No. 1 seed for the first time since 2009.

The underdogs stole the spotlight early in the tourney. This weekend, make way for the top dogs.

North Carolina, Virginia, Kansas and Oregon have all flexed their collective top-seeded muscle with dominant victories that not only flaunted their superiority so far, but showed an all-No. 1 Final Four is a legitimate possibility in Texas.

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — As many Christians around the Delaware Valley sit down to a festive Easter dinner, one local group is making sure there is a place at the holiday table for some of those in need.

Reverend Brian Jenkins with Chosen 300 Ministries says it’s their mission to serve the homeless and less fortunate through out the year, but on Easter Sunday they try even harder to follow Christ’s mission.

“He came to preach the gospel to the poor, and often times those are the ones that are pushed aside, not welcome, and especially on a Sunday like this when everybody comes in their Sunday best, this is a place where they can come just as they are,” he said.

Society Hill Playhouse is closing for good next week.

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – After more than 50 years, one of Philadelphia’s first community playhouses is closing its doors for good.

“When we started there were no theaters like this,” says Deen Cogan, director of the playhouse.
She and her late husband, Jay, founded the playhouse in 1959. The curtains opened in 1960 and since then the stage has hosted hundreds of plays like “The Blacks” and “School House Rock.”

Philadelphia Won’t Be Cleveland, But DNC Security Will Be Comparable

 Host Committee Senior Advisor David Cohen (credit: Pat Loeb) 

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Cleveland is gearing up for possible turmoil when it hosts the Republican National Convention this summer. Philadelphia’s job of hosting the Democrats seems easy by comparison, but the same security precautions are being taken in the city.

Philadelphia should be very safe in July when delegates come in from around the country for the Democratic National Convention. In an update by the host committee, special advisor David Cohen said both conventions are national security special events, so they both get the same federal protection — though he hastened to add it won’t be anything like the visit of Pope Francis.

HARRISBURG, Pa. (CBS) — Advocates say they believe the grand jury report about abuse by priests in the Altoona-Johnstown Diocese is a tipping point in their effort to eliminate the statute of limitations in child sex abuse cases.

Advocates have been trying for more than a decade to enact legislation that would eliminate the statute of limitations for both criminal and civil cases of child sex abuse. At a state capitol event Monday, Attorney General Kathleen Kane was among those who argued for a change in the law.

“That those who prey on our children know that you’ll never get a free pass,” Kane said.

Philadelphia Youth Network Looking For Summer Jobs For Teens
 
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Philadelphia Youth Network hopes to find part time jobs for 10,000 teenagers again this summer.

The team excavating from 2004 to 2012, finally began uncovering remains, studies indicating the seven workers found had, in fact, been murdered, shot or beaten to death — most likely by vigilantes fueled by hatred of immigrants, the Irish,Catholics and fear of their spreading cholera.

So far the remains of two workers have been identified and they have been given proper burials at special ceremonies in the country they left, but would never see again. Five other sets of remains are now at the memorial in West Laurel Hill Cemetery.
