Temple University Sugar Babies/Daddies, NJ Police Body Cameras, Females Lead Board Of Commissioners
  by: Rebel - Havertown, PA

Some might say Temple University has earned another notch on its belt, with nearly 300 people signing up to become a 'Sugar Baby' in 2016, the North Philly campus topped the list. More than a thousand Temple Owls are now signed up on the website, in hopes of finding a 'Sugar Daddy' or 'Sugar Mama' to help pay their tuition and other bills. "It's an older person that a younger person dates for money," said one senior on campus. They could also provide mentorship and job opportunities, in addition to any agreed upon romantic relationship or companionship. College students on campus are not new to the concept, as Temple ranked 4th on the list in 2015.

The State of New Jersey has released a half-million dollars to 37 police departments, including 10 in South Jersey, to provide body cameras for police officers. Seven departments in Burlington County and three in Gloucester County are included in this second round of grants. Last year, 44 local departments in the tri-county area took advantage of the offer. Pair those efforts with putting cams on every state trooper and it's thought about half the cops in New Jersey are now equipped with them. The state has left it to individual departments to decide if the cameras are a good fit for them. The grants come down to $500 per camera. The local departments involved in this round of grants include Bordentown, Eastampton, Medford, Cinnaminson, Delanco, Maple Shade and Mansfield Townships in Burlington County as well as Mantua, Wenonah and Elk Townships in Gloucester County.

The boards of commissioners in both Chester and Montgomery counties are now headed up by women. Michelle Kichline recently became the third chairwoman of the Chester County board of commissioners, and with Kathi Cozzone as her vice chair, it marks the first time two women hold the top positions in the county's government. Kichline says she works to encourage more women to consider politics. In Montgomery County, Val Arkoosh is the county's first chairwoman, rising to the position after Josh Shapiro stepped down following his election as Pennsylvania Attorney General. Arkoosh says it's good to see more women involved, but points to a study to show how far she thinks Pennsylvania needs to go. "Pennsylvania ranks 33 out of 50 in terms of gender representation."
