THE CITY PLAN to close five fire companies to save $3 million is as outrageous as it is dangerous. Overall fires are up and fire deaths are through the roof. There is a surplus of more than $160 million and this plan is being pushed to save a paltry $3 million. The mayor is gambling with the safety of every resident and their families. Let your councilperson know that you won't stand for being used as a pawn in the mayor's game of political Russian roulette. Joseph Lee Philadelphia

RE "THE disappearing maternity wards" by Dr. Jennifer Simmons (April 18): Dear Doctor, Repeatedly, all I hear are the complaints from doctors and politicians about jury awards. Why is it you never hear a doctor criticize another doctor about his lack of skills? Maybe medical-school standards need to be higher. I wouldn't want a surgeon - or any doctor - who just squeaked by in school to practice on me. Nor would I want a doctor who is not fit to practice caring for my family or me. Doctors know which colleagues shouldn't be practicing, but you never hear that - publicly.

A shouting and chanting crowd of hundreds told officials Thursday night exactly what they thought of a Philadelphia School District plan to close 37 schools and change grades and shut programs at dozens more. "SOS! Save our schools!" hundreds yelled as they marched up North Broad Street toward district headquarters. "Whose city? Our city! Whose schools? Our schools!" It was a dramatic stand against the planned closings of one in six city schools, announced last week. Closings were not on the agenda of the School Reform Commission's voting meeting, but they quickly became the hot potato of the evening, with students, teachers, parents, and community members demanding answers.

Calling all Catholics. Our church is in trouble and we need to act now if we hope to save it. By the end of this month, more than a dozen Catholic churches and schools will be suppressed and the Eucharist removed from their communities. Alarmingly, recent history indicates that this is just the beginning. In Detroit, more than 30 neighborhoods lost their churches in a year. In Chicago, more than 70 worshipping communities were wiped out over two years. If we don't act now, Philadelphia will be similarly affected.

City officials in 1990 settled on sex-shop spies as a reasonable alternative to more drastic action. They initially considered shutting down sex shops where potential deadly sexual activity was encouraged, according to a seven-page unsigned memo circulated within the department two months before the July 1990 program began. The memo shows that health officials were particularly concerned about bathhouses - popular gathering spots for gay men. The bathhouses "for many years provided a unique environment conducive to multiple sexual encounters, drug use and unprotected sex," the memo said.

A Federal Aviation Administration report details 765 sightings of unmanned small aircraft, commonly called drones, in the nation's airspace - a surge in encounters with remotely piloted mini-planes. It contains a new list of pilot, air traffic, and citizen reports of possible unmanned aircraft sightings covering Nov. 13, 2014, through Aug. 20, 2015. "Because pilot reports of unmanned aircraft have increased dramatically over the past year," the agency said, "the FAA wants to send a clear message that operating drones around airplanes and helicopters is dangerous and illegal.

Western University, founded in 1865; Leland University, 1870; Bishop College, 1881; St. Paul's College, 1888; Daniel Payne College, 1889: These are some of the historically black colleges and universities across America that shut down after years of fighting financial calamities. Without major changes, Pennsylvania's Cheyney University, founded in 1837, could close too. There are a number of reasons. Perhaps at the top of the list is a lack of the leadership needed over the past decade to make Cheyney more competitive in attracting students of any race.

On the picturesque streets surrounding Periwinkle Lane in Lower Merion, summer typically follows a pleasant suburban script: Children splash in backyard pools, families take their dogs on neighborhood strolls down quiet streets. But residents are preparing for the bubble to burst in late September, when one of the world's most famous figures is expected to move in for a few days next door. "I have no idea how we're going to even get out of the development," said Natalie Landro, 62, whose house abuts the St. Charles Borromeo Seminary, where Pope Francis is expected to stay during his visit to Philadelphia.

CamConnect, a nonprofit that helped develop the first comprehensive survey of Camden's vacant properties, is closing because of funding problems. The data-collection and analysis group was created in 1999 with the goal of helping Camden residents and other stakeholders better understand the city's problems. Over the years it published reports on the crime rate, taxes, census trends, and poverty, and last year finished a study of the city's abandoned buildings, which was completed last year with help from the Camden Community Development Association.
