Nutter: ‘No exceptions’ for curfew

More than 60 teenagers under 18 were picked up by police for breaking the city’s new 9 p.m. downtown curfew, with a majority picked up Friday night, officials said.

Many of the Friday night violators were caught on South Street, police said. All were picked up by parents and issued warnings. Twelve teens were picked up on Saturday.

“It is strict and serious, and there are no exceptions.”

Philly Dream Shop has the most colorful and noticeable store sign of Keid’s three stores opened recently on South Street.

Many business owners’ dreams of a South Street on the rise are going up in smoke. In the past six months, three head shops opened on the strip within six blocks of one another, all operated by owner Rocky Keid. Their neon-lit windows are crammed with glass pipes, hookahs, vaporizers and even gas mask bongs. Keid’s reason for the deluge? A family feud. “There’s a big competiGET MORE METRO ONLINE: WWW.METRO.US

tion with my family. Everybody tries to be better than the other, that’s what I’m trying to do,” said Keid, whose relatives own a minimart between Sixth and Seventh. “They own only one and I own three.” But his choice of wares have many upset. “I don’t want South Street to be known for this. When a person sells hookahs, someone else will sell something to put into it and I don’t want those kinds of people around here,” said a neighboring business owner, who asked not to be named. According to Hot Diggity

owner Keith Garabedian, L&I announced at a recent business association meeting that it had unsuccessfully taken Keid to court. “We want more arts and culture.

Where’s the Irish food? One thing that has left many neighbors scratching their heads is the words “Irish Food” prominently featured on the stores’ signs, along with “Gift Shop,” “Grocery” and “Souvenirs.” “I went in there and

Nobody’s really sure on zoning Recent and proposed changes to the city’s antiquated zoning code are confusing to area business owners — and to the city itself. “Philadelphia has, at times, attempted to craft laws regulating sales of paraphernalia and repeatedly lost on the state level,” the city’s Department of Licenses and Inspections spokeswoman Maura Kennedy. “The state says these things are permissible business uses. I can understand the neighborhood’s frustration, but unfortunately, the state can rule against us.” When asked about the portion of zoning code stating that a commercial zone such as South Street required a special use certificate following community input for stores selling such wares, L&I would only state, “We’re looking into the matter further.” METRO/AW

cilitates drug use.” “I never went to court and nobody sued me,” Keid said. “I have all my licenses and everything, no problems with the city.” Not all businesspeople want to see Keid shut down. With the past decade’s exodus of South Street anchors like Pearl Art & Craft Supply and Tower Records, many see any development as a good thing. “Anything’s better than an empty storefront,” said Ray Baxley, manager of Benjamin Lovell Shoes.

Putting the ‘nice’ back in Nicetown

Decade in the making, revitalization of neighborhood starts with train station SEPTA spending $30 million on historic Wayne Junction For years, Nicetown resident Nikki Bagby has heard people talk about her community as a place to leave, but that’s gradually changing with a flurry of new development. This past weekend, the Nicetown CDC held its annual “Give Back to the Community Festival,” which generally celebrates residents. But this year, residents had something to celebrate in a neighborhood dealing with high crime and the loss of industry. More than 80 affordable housing units are expected to come from current and planned construction, and

Missed gamble Several years ago, it looked like the community might get a break when Donald Trump proposed a casino at the former Budd plant; but the proposal was not selected for one of the city’s two gaming licenses. “It was a long struggle. We’ve been [working on] it for 10 years now,” Rashid said. WRITE TO METRO: LETTERS@METRO.US

Temple Physicians will lease more than 2,300 square feet of commercial space in one of the buildings. But the centerpiece of development is SEPTA’s $30 million renovation of the Wayne Junction station — a major hub for Regional Rail riders. “It’s been a miracle,” said Bagby, 39, a longtime resident. “Anytime you take a blighted community … and help them change their mindset economically, socially and mentally, it helps them appreciate things and feel a sense of wealth.” Majeedah Rashid, chief

operating officer of the Nicetown CDC, said Kenny Gamble’s Universal Companies has been a major partner in the rebuilding, but their efforts have also attracted interest from outside entities like Community Builders Group, a national nonprofit organization. There is also an effort to rehabilitate some of the community’s existing housing stock, Rashid said. “We can’t build new stuff with already existing stuff looking crazy,” she said. SOLOMON D. LEACH

Pakistan let China see stealth copter Financial Times reports China given access to special chopper Could hurt US-Pakistan relationship Blackhawk modified for stealth capability Pakistan gave China access to the previously unknown “stealth” helicopter that crashed during the commando raid that killed Osama bin Laden in May despite explicit requests from the CIA not to, the Financial Times reported yesterday. The revelation, if confirmed, is likely to further shake the U.S.-Pakistan relationship, which has been

Law school grads try skills on their schools

05 PHOTODISC

New graduates file suit against colleges Wannabe lawyers say they were misled by false data Now drowning without jobs and tons of debt The hornets nest Both schools vehemently denied claims of misleading potential students as a means of filling seats. James Thelen, Cooley’s general counsel and associate dean for legal affairs, said the school already filed its own suit against the law firm’s lawyers for defamation when they began their investigation last month. “We understand that three of the four named plaintiffs have established and are working in their own law firms,” Thelen said.

If you graduate from law school but struggle to get a job, whose fault is it? According to a New York City law firm, it could be your school’s fault. Kurzon Strauss LLP has filed class action lawsuits against New York Law School and Thomas M. Cooley Law School for exaggerating postgraduate employment and salary rates in order to recruit students. Seven former students who graduated from either NYLS or Thomas Cooley are behind the suit. “We are bringing these suits because thousands of young lawyers, like the

plaintiffs, struggle to purchase a home, raise a family and make investments because they leveraged their

future to a law school based on inaccurate information,” said Jesse Strauss, a Kurzon Strauss partner. “It is time for the legal academy to own up to this problem.” It’s no secret that the job market is bleak, no matter the degree you hold. However, these lawsuits say the schools actually reported inaccurate data about their students’ employment prospects by classifying graduates as “full-time” when in fact they only had part-time or temporary positions.

Some recently graduated lawyers are saying they were led astray by law schools greedy for full rosters and tuition fees.

myentertainment ANNIE LEIBOVITZ/COURTESY OF HBO

The women’s rights activist says ‘the movement is young’ Tonight, she recalls her life in the new HBO documentary, ‘Gloria: In Her Own Words’ No word quite describes Gloria Steinem like “fighter.” A driving force behind the modern women’s liberation movement, Steinem shares her struggles — those for gender equality, as well as the strife of her early days and later, a battle against breast cancer — in the new HBO film, “Gloria: In Her Own Words.” One message of the documentary: The fight isn’t over yet. “If you think of the suffragists [or] abolitionists, movements have to last

A sense of pride Steinem calls her embodiment of the women’s rights movement “a gift.” “I’m not crazy enough to think that it was about one person,” she explains. “But because I symbolize it, I get the stories.

In 1997 — the year Netflix was founded — DIY films were almost entirely locked out of the big box stores, such as Blockbuster. Then along came Netflix, buying up every indie film in sight. For roughly the first 10 years of its existence, Netflix provided a venue for truly independent filmmakers. But getting a film into their catalog became steadily more difficult from 2008 to 2010. In 2011, it’s next to impossible, but at least two local filmmakers are doing all they can to get their films into that red envelope. “When Netflix started, what they needed was titles. It was fairly easy as an indie feature with limited distri-

Networking for Netflix Moffett recently launched a Facebook petition on behalf of two of his documentaries, “Return to El Salvador” and “The Ordinary Radicals” (visit www.dearnetflix.com to access it). Although even if the campaign works, neither Moffett nor Gray expect huge returns for being added to the behemoth site. It looks like, if added, they will be compensated somewhere between $2,500 and $9,000. The budget for “Return to El Salvador” alone was over $100,000.

bution to get your title added to their library,” says Katharine Clark Gray of A Chip & A Chair Films, a three-person production company in Philly. “But as they grew, it became easier to get content from the major providers, so now they don’t feel the need to appeal to indies.” Because A Chip & A Chair has a distributor, Vanguard Cinema, they were able to make their latest, “If You Could Say It in Words,” available on the Netflix site. But they were surprised to discover a new hurdle when customers attempted to view the movie: It is only available to “save,” not to watch. These days, Netflix waits for an indie title to

have an unspecified number of “saves” before they actually make it available. “Let’s face it, they’re the belle of the ball. At this point, they’re very important to how we as a country consume media,” says Jamie Moffett, of the Kensingtonbased Jamie Moffett Media and Design. “Their success has created a bottleneck for indie films, because they can sit back and absorb the studio material.” BRUCE WALSH

Be your determined, slightly inappropriate self Unlike conventional fields, the entertainment industry is fueled by characters, and is tolerant — even welcoming — of the newbie with a slightly offbeat approach to getting hired. “In Hollywood, mistakes are what get you hired,” says Fenimore. “You don’t crash interviews on Wall Street, you just don’t do that, but sets are a different story.” Take any job, and then take it seriously While there is room for the inexperienced, Hollywood is still “who you know.” Which is why Scherzer recommends putting in the hours once you land a job as an assistant’s assistant: “Make sure that you’re the first one on the set and the last one to leave. You’re often asked to do menial jobs, but you do it with a great attitude because it’s all about relationships.” MONICA WEYMOUTH

WHAT’S NEW THIS TIME AROUND? This September’s Restaurant Week will be even more exciting – and green! Philadelphia has been a front-runner in the local food movement for a while and now Restaurant Week will bring homegrown dishes to your table. Inspired by our partner, Philly Homegrown, a program of GPTMC, each restaurant participating in Center City District Restaurant Week Presented by TD Bank will showcase at least one dish that uses the bounty of vegetables, fruit, meat, poultry, seafood or herbs available in our region. Menus are available online for each restaurant. Look for the red tractor on each for the locally sourced dishes. Philly Homegrown encourages consumers to support the local food system and regional economy by focusing on foods grown and produced within 100 miles of the city. This effort is designed to broaden the market for local foods and help celebrate the local food movement.

Breaking your work addiction

Create a switch Trouble disconnecting? Create what career counselor Courtney Anderson calls â&#x20AC;&#x153;a mental switch.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Take that switch and say â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m off, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m logging off,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? she recommends. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Take personal time. Otherwise, with technology, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible to be always working.â&#x20AC;?

Being a workaholic doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just have a negative impact on your personal life â&#x20AC;&#x201D; it could also harm your career When youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re already prone to workaholism, living in the smartphone decade doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take a step back to draw boundaries between the conference room and the living room, work life-coach Sue Thompson warns, you could sacrifice your free will to a phone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We no longer have a work life and a home life,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a life and we really need to decide how we want to live that life.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to make the time to ask yourself that existential question, agrees

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We no longer have a work life and a home life. We have a life and we really need to decide how we want to live that life.â&#x20AC;? SUE THOMPSON

Careers By Design Founder Shirin Khamisa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Look at your habits, get a reality check,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Is the way youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re functioning really serving you? If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re texting at the dinner table, how is that affecting your interaction with your fami-

ly? If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a young, single person, how does always being connected affect your personal life?â&#x20AC;? Keeping your thumbs surgically attached to the phone could hurt more than your dating career, she notes. It could destroy your actual career. Ask yourself: Is it truly worth hammering away into the deep night, before slumping to work the next morning tired, hollow and ineffective? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Start thinking in terms of results,â&#x20AC;? she urges. DREW HINSHAW

Change your clothes â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dress professionally for work,â&#x20AC;? Thompson offers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That way, when you get home and you take off those clothes, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your psychological barrier that shows youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at home.â&#x20AC;? If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, Anderson adds, you could lose perspective. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make that serious effort, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all going to blend in,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In five or 10 years, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be even harder.â&#x20AC;?

In the long run, late nights donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay oďŹ&#x20AC;.

Previous studies were just looking at those that live in the dorms versus those that don’t,” explains Dr. James Murray, who coauthored the study with Dr. Pedro De Araujo. “The problem is that students that care more about school may be more likely to want to live at school. So, they may perform better, because they happen to be the better students anyway. But we actually found that living on campus caused students to do better, at least in terms of GPA.” The researchers also found that campus life had a positive effect even after the student moved out of

Why poison our future? This coming September, our House of Representatives will attempt to pass a budget bill that represents the worst single attack on our country’s air, water, wildlife and land to date. It will dismantle bedrock environmental and public-health protections that have saved and improved millions of American lives. It will put the health of millions at risk by blocking protections against lifethreatening mercury and toxic pollution.

from years of war. It wasn’t that there insufficient wealth to support repayment; it was that the dysfunctional central government couldn’t collect taxes to pay with. The solution was to create a strong federal government that could meet our obligations. The original Boston Tea Party helped reject monarchy and move us forward to the Articles of Confederation. The current “Tea Party” movement claims to be the same, but it’s the opposite: rejecting the Constitution and moving us backward to the Articles of Confederation.

King for a day: Pence just living the dream GETTY IMAGES

Newest Phillie looking for World Series ring Says he’s fortunate to be on this team Loves city, fans Hunter Pence looks around Citizens Bank Park and sees hundreds of fans donning his jersey. He looks around the ballpark and sees it filled to capacity every night. A couple of weeks after the trade from Houston to the Phillies, Pence is still a little bit in awe of his new surroundings. “It’s unbelievable,” Pence said. “Really, I’m overwhelmed a little bit. I’m ecstatic to be here. They’ve treated me like a king over here. It’s been just awesome.” Getting that coveted right-handed bat only enhanced the Phillies’ lineup. The team has won 12 out of 14 with Pence in the lineup, and own the best record in the majors. More importantly, Pence has a legitimate shot at a World Series title. Does it get any better? “That passion, I mean who wouldn’t want to play for a city like this,” said Pence, who is 13-for-38, including three home runs over his last 10 games. “The passion here with the

type of team you have ... We are all very fortunate to be on this team.” Pence played here as a visiting player and heard about the fans. None of that bothered him when he found out he was traded. Instead, he reveled in the transition. “I love it and I feed off that,” Pence said. “Philly is a good city and my passion fits in with them. I like this mentality.

Adu makes Union debut, still needs ‘game fitness’ Ever since Freddy Adu entered Major League Soccer as a 14-year-old phenom with DC United, he has created a buzz. Eight years later, the buzz is still there as dozens of Union fans were already donning his jersey, just 24 hours after he signed with the club. Adu got the start and played more than 60 min-

utes in his Philly debut, a 2-2 tie vs. FC Dallas this past Saturday at PPL Park. “We gave him a start and it was important for us not to push the envelope too much,” Union manager Peter Nowak said. “You can

see he still needs the game fitness. I think he understood the concept of the 60 minutes he played. We have to figure out the tactical part, we have to see where he fits in our system. For the first time, it was good to have him.” Adu hasn’t been a part of MLS since 2007, when he was with Real Salt Lake. “I was excited to have

the fans chanting and cheering for me,” said Adu, who has 12 career MLS goals. “This fan base is incredible. I’m looking forward to the rest of the games this season and helping the Union win matches. I’m just so happy to be back in MLS.” ANDY JASNER sports@metro.us

Birds throwing fastballs

GETTY IMAGES

Castillo, Eagles defense impressive in debut Reid endorses â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;fastballâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; theory Players respect teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new defensive coordinator Improved in red zone Eagles coach Andy Reid called it the fastball theory. Under new defensive coordinator Juan Castillo and new defensive line coach Jim Washburn, the Eaglesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; defense is going to be swarming, in attack mode. Basically, they want to throw as many fastballs at the opposition as they can by constantly rotating defensive linemen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard on an offensive line,â&#x20AC;? Reid said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You think youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just wearing one guy down, and all of the sudden the [defensive line] brings in a new crew.â&#x20AC;? In the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s preseason opener, the Eagles collected six sacks, picked up a

fumble and snared two interceptions. All in all, it was an impressive debut. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The guys played fast. They were physical, and there were some good fundamentals,â&#x20AC;? Castillo said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As always we still have some weaknesses, and it takes a little bit of time to

get everything right.â&#x20AC;? Even though the firstteam defense only saw about eight reps, the energy was evident. And that can be traced to Castillo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes, you see changes in coaches from practices to game days. They get a little stage fright, but Juan didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any of that,â&#x20AC;? cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was the same excited guy, running up and down the field and calling the plays we worked on, not putting guys in tough positions. Everyone respects that about him.â&#x20AC;? Castillo was especially excited about the goal-line stand his substitutes

SOUTH JERSEY - PHILADELPHIA

Herb Magee has probably told the story at least as many times as he’s won a game. Which means 922 and counting. But probably never in a more appropriate venue. “Some people would say, ‘Why can’t this guy get another job?’” said 70-yearold Magee, who was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame this past Friday as the winningest coach in NCAA history. “The way I looked at it was, I already had the best job. And, as I look around here, I think it’s been proven I made the right decision. “I look up at the pictures of all these Hall of Famers, and to think that my picture will be up there one day is just an unbelievable thrill.” No, that’s not what drove the kid from West Catholic to Philadelphia Textile (now Philadelphia University) in the late 1950s. Magee wanted to play for Dr. Jack Ramsay at Saint Joseph’s, but the of-

WWW.METRO.US/SPORTS GET CAUGHT UP ON WHAT YOU MISSED THIS WEEKEND

Did you know? Magee’s 29.1 points per game, set in the 1961-62 season, is still the school record at Philly U. Magee was drafted 62nd overall by the Boston Celtics in 1963, but two broken fingers caused him to miss training camp.

Former Saint Joseph’s coach Dr. Jack Ramsay presented Herb Magee at his Hall of Fame induction ceremony.

fer never came. Instead, he played four years at Textile and set all kinds of scoring records, then stayed as a combined golf/track/tennis/jayvee basketball coach. Eventually, Magee took over the reins as head basketball coach in 1966 — and he’s been there ever since, with no interest in stopping. Especially with 1,000 wins not that far away. “It’s not as if they’re recognizing me because I retired a few years ago,” said Magee. “They’re recognizing me because of what we’ve been able to accomplish and I’m still going to do it. I don’t see any end to it.” Meaning that story he loves to tell will still have a long life to it. JON MARKS

Bentley offers luxury, low blood pressure

+

It might cost as much as four-bedroom house, but new Mulsanne’s worth it to ultra-rich About $200K more than Mercedes, BMW One reporter takes a test drive

The new Bentley Mulsanne. GETTY IMAGES

Step into the $285,000 Bentley Mulsanne, and odd things happen. Your heart rate drops. The softballsized knot between your shoulders shrinks to a marble. Unlike white-knuckledriving supercars that cost more than a house in Florida, this luxury sedan induces a vastly different reaction. Breath out, relax. You’re rich, after all. Owners of the Mulsanne or its competitor, the $246,500 Rolls-Royce Ghost, are of a different ilk than those who drive the Mercedes-Benz S-Class or BMW 7 Series. There’s an inherent declaration of checkme-out entitlement. Yet the two brands have a different approach. If the Ghost wears its extravagance on its bespoke sleeve, the Bentley is a less

showy. At more than 18 feet long, it’s certainly formidable. It would be hard to

Gas guzzler What would stress me would be trying to find a gas station in the city — a common occurrence since the Mulsanne manages only 11 mpg in the city, 18 highway. No wonder it gets socked with a $3,700 gas-guzzler tax.
