    I don't really like having a gun club right behind my house--I can hear the guns constantly. It took me a while to know what it was, having lived there for years. I also notice that when people leave they empty their pockets of their spent ammo on the street, bullet casings all over the place. I think it doesn't belong in a residential area. Now with the recent attempted suicide, this isn't the first time something awful has happened here and others in the city. I know it doesn't happen often but still I don't think it belongs in a residential area. We had some issues with this building anyway, cleaning up and trash etc and they have done better but the noise which is constant and now the attempted suicide, it just isn't safe. You can just go there and get a gun and ammo. One young man went into a bathroom at another place and died. you can just walk around with your gun? you can borrow guns there?

    A 26-YEAR-OLD man remains in critical condition after attempting suicide at the Philadelphia Archery and Gun Club in South Philadelphia Monday afternoon, police said.

    Police and medics responded to the club on Ellsworth Street near 9th about 1:45 p.m. The unidentified man shot himself in his head, and was taken by medics to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, said Officer Tanya Little, a Police Department spokeswoman.

    Employees at the shop Tuesday night spoke over the sound of guns being fired in the background, and said they were unaware of anyone being injured there on Monday afternoon. However, neighbors took to an online message board to ask each other why police cars and ambulances were outside the club Monday afternoon.

    At least two other people have gone to a gun range to commit suicide in the area within the past year.

    Last Aug. 22, a 22-year-old West Chester man shot himself in the head at the Targetmaster Indoor Firearm Range and Gun Shop on Wilmington-West Chester Pike in Concord Township. And on Feb. 14, a 25-year-old man killed himself in the restroom at the same club. n

    I pass this car every day and it has been more than a month, and it is still there. It is ironic because if it were a tax paying citizen's car, they would have been towed a long time ago--no boot either. Just a windshield filled with tickets. It is an eye sore and should be towed. I'm call 311 today.

    Water is gushing at high volume out of an open fire hydrant at 612 Federal St. An angry resident on Marshall St (intersects with Federal St) claims that as "block captain," she is allowed to open/close it at will. I informed the Water Department, but and posting here to make sure others in the area know of the issue.

    There's a large unpaved hole in the middle of the street due to recent plumbing work. They city had begun repairing the road earlier this week, but they left the job unfinished. Vehicles are forced to drive around the hole, while many cars hit the bump at full speed if they fail to see it. Further, buses are damaging trees when driving around the hole.
