A Ride the Ducks boat on the Delaware River, the former home for the tour until tragedy struck. Now, the city is saying the operator cannot use the Schuylkill River.

Mayor Nutter today announced that the city will not award a contract to the amphibious tour company Ride the Ducks to operate on the Schuylkill River.

“The City has fully reviewed Ride the Ducks proposal for the Schuylkill River and does not feel that it meets the City’s standards for operations,” said Nutter in a press release.

Back in October, the city announced that Ride the Ducks would be moving to the Schuylkill in March. The boats, which previously toured the Delaware River, have not been in operation since a July 7 accident in which two tourists were killed.

State health officials have called his abortion clinic "a clear danger to the public."

Now Kermit Gosnell, the West Philadelphia abortion doctor whose dirty clinic was closed earlier this year due to multiple violations, has to answer to Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams.  Williams is expected to announce several arrests in the year-long investigation into Gosnell's practice at a news conference scheduled for 10:30 a.m. this morning.

Gosnell, 70, ran the Womens Medical Society on Lancaster Avenue near 38th Street. In March, the Pennsylvania Department of Health cited the clinic for more than a dozen violations of state law and has been accusing of delaying a report to the state about a patient who died in November after going into cardiac arrest at the clinic.
