Camden County Pet Food Drive, Council Rock Impetigo Outbreak, 10 Year Old Boy Joyrides Van
  by: Rebel - Havertown, PA
started: 10/01/12 9:34 am | updated: 10/01/12 9:34 am
A pet food drive in Camden County, New Jersey begins today.
The goal is to collect enough food to feed all of the animals in Camden County’s three shelters for two days. The hope is to use the money that would typically be used to feed these animals for that two day period to cover key operating expenses, do upgrades and other things. Donations are accepted at more than two dozen locations until Halloween, list available below.

Council Rock South High School is assuring parents that it’s safe for students to resume classes and other activities as normal today after an outbreak of impetigo forced the school to cancel a varsity football game on Friday night. That game will now be played Monday night at Pennsbury High School in Fairless Hills.

In a statement released on Sunday night, Council Rock School District Superintendent Mark Klein says on Thursday, administrators learned of two confirmed cases of impetigo at Council Rock South High School, one in a soccer player, and one in a football player. Based on that information, student athletes underwent screenings and 19 players were sent to a physician for further treatment. Six of those students were confirmed to have impetigo, an infection which causes red, pus-filled blisters to form on the skin that are easily spread through contact. But all of the students have been cleared by doctors to return to school. “All students who have been screened have been cleared by their physician to return to school and compete in athletics,” Klein said in a letter to parents. According to school officials, the High School was cleaned and sanitized over the weekend, and the building is safe for students to resume normal activities. “The team locker room, weight room, and shower facilities have been completely sanitized and will receive extensive cleaning daily over the next several weeks,” school principal Al Funk said in a statement. ” Aramark will be sanitizing the entire building including the cafeteria.” Klein says impetigo is fairly common in high school athletic programs, and he says in the last two years it has even led to some wrestling matches or practices being cancelled because one or more wrestlers had the infection. In the statement, the superintendent also says there is a single confirmed case of MRSA at Council Rock South, but school officials don’t believe it’s related to the outbreak of impetigo. He says school officials don’t believe any students or staff at the school are at risk for contacting MRSA by being in the school or any other district facilities. They say that student has not been to school in over a week. Student athletes will continue to undergo regular skin checks for suspicious rashes or abrasions by the school staff for the remainder of the school year.

Police say a 10-year-old boy stole a van and took it for a joyride in West Philadelphia early Sunday afternoon before crashing into several parked vehicles. According to authorities, the boy stole a van that was parked along the 6200 block of Market Street shortly before 1 p.m. while the owner of the vehicle was unloading furniture. The boy removed the keys from the rear door of the vehicle, and then took the van and drove it to the unit block of 62nd Street, where he struck five parked cars. Neighbors at the scene of the crash detained the juvenile driver until police arrived.
No injuries were reported. The boy was expected to be charged with auto theft and related offenses. He was expected to be charged as a juvenile.
