Hosted by Lora Lewis, Philadelphia Focus introduces you to the people and organizations making a difference in our community, from health and safety issues to education, employment, and even entertainment opportunities.  Philadelphia Focus looks for solutions and positive action to make our region a better place to call home.

Todd Leiss, Traffic Incident Manager for the PA Turnpike and PennTime Manager, and Bob Pomykala, Statewide Coordinator for Training for NJTim, discussed the dangers of road accidents to first responders, as nationally we are tracking to a record number of fatalities and injuries in 2021. They described the problem, the ‘D’ driver – drunk, distracted, dumb, whose minor accident can turn into tragedy as other vehicles become involved. Describing the first 15 minutes after an accident are the most dangerous, they reminded us that drivers involved should get out of the way, drivers passing should allow clear distance and slow down. Noting that fines are not working, Bob, a former NJ State Trooper described their new campaigns trying to remind drivers that the police, EMT, tow crews and even construction workers, have families and friends. First responders and road crews must also protect themselves, and most states offer a form of PennTime and NJTim, a free course on staying safe on the job.

Jewish Perspectives on the News and Politics with Burt Siegel

This program will not hold back on what the host and his guests believe is wrong with an American society in which anti-Jewish sentiments as well as racism have become too often tolerated, where cooperation across party lines is treated as treachery, where immigrants and refugees are seen as a threat to the “American Way of Life” and the gap between the ultra wealthy and the average American is ever widening. While it will reflect the values of Judaism and the Democratic party all are welcomed to share their thoughts regarding how we can achieve the dream of what our nation aspires to be about.
