Dems: Voter ID law will restrict rights Senate Republicans narrowly passed a voter identification bill yesterday that Democrats say will disproportionately affect thousands of minority voters. The controversial legislation was approved 26-23, with all 20 Democrats voting against it along with three Republicans, according to Committee of Seventy, a local government watchdog. The bill now heads to the House, which approved a similar bill,

and then to Gov. Tom Corbett, who has said he would sign it. Under the bill, voters would be required to provide proof of identification at the polls before voting, starting with the Nov. 6 general election. Republicans said the measure is aimed at cracking down on voter fraud, but Democrats and Philadelphia’s leading political watchdog group said it will disenfranchise voters and cost the state $4 million. “Voting is a constitutional

Dry run The Committee of Seventy said a dry run using the new rules will happen before the upcoming Republican presidential primary next month: A dress rehearsal for the law will take place for the April 24 primary. Seventy’s will lead an education effort.

Make sure to bring your ID.

right,” said state Sen. Vincent Hughes of Philadelphia. “Under the guise of preventing voter fraud, this bill would actually suppress the right to vote for many eligible voters in Pennsylvania who do not have a photo ID.” “If voters are turned away because they don’t have an acceptable ID, there’s a good chance they will never come back,” Committee of Seventy CEO and President Zack Stalberg said. METRO/SDL

Up to no good in Overbrook Three of city’s ‘most wanted’ fugitives call West Philly neighborhood home Other neighborhoods hide even more A tiny stretch of Media Street in Overbrook seemed peaceful yesterday afternoon. Neighbors walking back and forth from the corner store greeted one another as school buses dropped children off to waiting parents. “It’s definitely a close neighborhood,” said 12-year resident Tracy Nelson. “Everybody knows everyone around here.” “There’s a police station right around the corner — they come through here all the time,” his neighbor, Ronald Curmety, said, gesturing to a passing squad car. But the noontime calm is deceptive. Within a couple blocks are last known addresses for three of Philadelphia’s most wanted violent fugitives. There are 29 more within a five-mile radius and at least one woman familiar with the neighborhood isn’t comfortable with its vibe. “It’s not a good place,” said former resident Jules Edwards as she waited at the corner for her grandson’s school bus. One of her daughters still lives on the block. “We were walking up the street just the other day after getting off of the bus and two men were fighting each other. All we could do was yell, ‘Call 911!’” “It’s getting worse — just look at the streets,” she said as she motioned to potholes in the ragged asphalt. “But everywhere is bad.” According to the Philadelphia Police Department’s list

of the city’s 100 most wanted fugitives, the majority of the criminals listed — wanted for crimes including aggravated assault, robbery, rape and murder — are concentrated in West, Southwest and North Philadelphia. Police released the felons’ names and photos on YouTube Tuesday, with plans to air the slideshow on Channel 64. Suspects highlighted were chosen based on the nature of each criminal’s crime plus the lack of leads detectives have uncovered concerning their whereabouts, according to Evers. “They’re definitely individuals we’re having a hard time finding,” he said. The decision to publicize the fugitives’ information online and on television was originally announced by Mayor Michael Nutter in January as part of a citywide crime-reduction plan. Measuring the success of the initiative has not been easy; it has become an additional layer of investigative police work. “We’re trying to keep track of how many people we take into custody are arrested based on tips, whether they were pulled over for a traffic violation or an officer recognized them as wanted, whether it was due to police work. We investigate all of this after an individual gets arrested,” he said. ALEX WIGGLESWORTH awigglesworth@metro.us

Mayor, fool us once, shame on us, fool us twice ... No new taxes to be proposed today in Mayor Nutter’s 2012-2013 budget proposal Last year, he said same thing only for tax hike to come later No new taxes and no tax increases. That’s a line taxpayers and City Council will likely hear numerous times from Mayor Michael Nutter today as he gives his budget address in Council chambers. Bold it, italicize it, underline it. And while that is technically true, most homeowners will still end up shelling out more for property taxes for the third straight year as a result of the city’s new property value assessments, the first ac-

cepted since 2004. The average assessment is expected to increase 25 percent, although some homeowners will see a decrease, with the difference phased in over the next three years, according to city finance director Rob Dubow. This comes on the heels of temporary increases in property tax the last two years to help close deficits for the city and the School District of Philadelphia. Those temporary increases will expire June 30. “Values have gone up.

We're capturing that value,” city finance director Rob Dubow said yesterday. Dubow said the new assessments are akin to someone paying more in wage taxes because they received a raise. He deflected talk of delaying the assessments another year, which was suggested by some on Council. “There’s going to be a great deal of doubt and distrust," said Zack Stalberg, president and CEO of Committee of Seventy, a government watchdog

Nutter last year proposed no tax increases in his budget proposal, but that didn’t prove true.

group. “It’s going to be a big job for both the mayor and City Council to explore this and explain it in a way that real people can understand.” One reason for some skepticism is that Council must approve the budget with the new assessments before even finding out whether the numbers are accurate. A consulting firm will vet the data after assessments are done by June. SOLOMON D. LEACH sleach@metro.us

By the numbers

the assessments are complete.

Here’s a closer look at the city’s upcoming revaluation of property values:

Low-income seniors can qualify for a property-tax freeze.

To compensate for drastically higher property assessments, the administration said it will propose a reduction to the millage rate to hit a target revenue figure. The millage rate will not be calculated, however, until

The Homestead exemption, which would reduce property-tax bills for residents, must be approved by the Legislature. The Senate voted in favor of it Tuesday, but it still needs House support.

Drivers texting in Pa. now face fines RIKARD LARMA/METRO

GOT AN OPINION? WRITE US LETTERS@METRO.US

A sign on the Camden side of the Ben Franklin Bridge warned drivers yesterday entering the city of the new law.

Philly drivers, you can take your cell phones back out — but only for talking. A state ban on texting while driving went into effect today, superseding a 2-year-old city ban on any use of cell phones while driving. In other words, you can now go back to enjoying a phone conversation while driving on city streets, a police spokeswoman confirmed yesterday. “Your most important job when behind the wheel is to focus only on driving. Most people would never close their eyes for five seconds while driving, but that’s how long you take your eyes off the road — or even longer — every time you send or read a text message,” state Transportation secretary Barry Schoch, said in a press release. “It’s not just your own life you’re risking; it’s the lives and safety of every motorist around you.” The texting while driving law isn't the first state legislation to weaken a Philadelphia statute. Over the past two-plus decades, a couple attempts to strength gun control locally have failed because of state "pre-emption" laws. Former state Rep. Josh Shapiro, a Democrat from

Another bus stolen, abandoned ELMWOOD. The second yellow school bus to be stolen in Southwest Philadelphia this week was taken early yesterday and then crashed into a parked car by an unknown driver, police said. Police said the incident happened around 1:15 a.m. on the 6800 block of Buist Avenue, stolen from a bus depot there. The bus struck a parked

vehicle and the suspect fled on foot. No injuries were reported. It crashed into a car attempting to turn at Buist Avenue and South 68th Street. The initial school bus abduction occurred Monday afternoon when the vehicle allegedly was taken by teenagers in Kensington. They abandoned the bus and no arrests have been made. METRO

Apple’s new iPad has 4G, retina display Apple’s new tablet has better visuals, camera Is it enough in current climate of competition? Apple Inc. took the wraps off a faster, 4G-equipped iPad starting at $629, hoping the latest version of its tablet can safeguard its dominance over rivals ranging from Amazon.com Inc. to Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. Chief Executive Tim Cook, presiding over his second major product launch since 2011’s voice-enabled iPhone 4S, introduced the highly anticipated third iteration of the tablet — which is available for pre-orders from Wednesday and will hit store shelves March 16.

ADULTS

The high-end model of Apple’s latest iPad will be capable of operating on a high-speed 4G Long-Term Evolution network. At speeds roughly 10 times faster than current 3G technology, that may help banish the sometimes-shaky video quality of older devices. Analysts had anticipated many of the features Cook showed off yesterday, including a higher-definition “retina display” screen and a better camera. Some had held out hope of

Romney camp tells rivals: You can’t catch him Mitt Romney’s campaign told his Republican presidential rivals yesterday they could not catch him and nudged them to quit the race even though he failed to deliver a knockout blow in the biggest round of nominating contests. Romney won six of the 10 “Super Tuesday” states, including a narrow victory in Ohio’s marquee matchup, expanding his lead in delegates and solidifying his frontrunner status in the race to find the Republican challenger to President Barack Obama in the November 6 election. But rival Rick Santorum won three states and Newt Gingrich captured one, keeping their hopes alive and raising the chance the divisive Republican fight could drag on for months. Both vowed they are in the

Apple CEO Tim Cook introduced the anticipated iPad update.

Out of pocket An updated version of the model with only Wi-Fi remains at $499. The most expensive 4G model, with 64 gigabytes of storage, will go for $829. The previous iPad 2 with 3G also sold for $629 to $829. The cheapest model of the previous-generation iPad 2 now retails at $399.

Dems don’t want bust of Limbaugh on display A plan to place a bust in the Missouri Capitol to honor Rush Limbaugh, the conservative broadcaster embroiled in controversy over his calling a university student a “slut” on the air, has drawn protests from state Democrats who are trying to block the effort. The bust, proposed by Republican state House Speaker Steve Tilley, would sit in the Capitol rotunda alongside

those of other prominent Missouri natives such as writer Mark Twain and former president Harry Truman. Some 47 Missouri Democratic leaders, in a letter delivered to Tilley on Tuesday, said Limbaugh should not be honored and that the action would be “inappropriate and offensive,” a spokesman for Tilley confirmed.

Scientists said they have gotten even closer to proving the existence of the elusive Higgs boson, the so-called “God particle” that supplies mass to matter and would complete Albert Einstein’s theory of the universe. Analyzing data from some 500 trillion subatomic particle collisions designed to emulate conditions right after the Big Bang when the universe was formed, scientists at Fermilab outside Chicago produced some 1,000 Higgs particles over a decade of work. “Unfortunately, this hint is not significant enough to conclude that the Higgs boson exists,” said Rob Roser, a physicist at Fermilab, near Chicago, in explaining the findings.

@METROPOLITIK For complaints, suggestions and digital attaboys, e-mail us at brayden.simms@metro.us.

A

s this week’s Super Tuesday results promise to further extend the barroom brawl that has become of the GOP nominating process, we thought we’d take some time to discuss a figure often overlooked in all the fevered angling to beat President Obama: President Obama. Mr. Obama has been without a doubt the No. 1 benefici-

ary of the Republican Party’s self-cannibalization in this year’s nasty and drawn-out primary season. So as other outlets focus on what this week’s election results mean for GOP prospects in November — here’s a hint: Romney will win the nomination, whether voters like it or not — we’re going to address what the president has been doing with his time while the rest of us have been off following the minutia of Newt Gingrich’s absurd moon colonization fantasies. While the Republican candidates battle each other over the dubious distinction of most likely to bomb Iran back to the Stone Age, and as they relentlessly — and, if we must say, factlessly — attack the president over alleged weaknesses in foreign policy, they ignore how the Obama administration has been busy radically rewriting constitutional powers of the executive.

Eric Holder wants you to trust President Obama. But what about the next guy?

.S. Attorney General Eric Holder on Monday finally got around to explaining, sort of, the president’s supposed justification for assassinating U.S. citizens abroad. “Due process” — the constitutionally enshrined right of Americans to basic legal protections, like not being killed by the CIA in your sleep, for instance — is not necessarily the same as “judicial process,” he said. In other words, we are not actually guaranteed, as many had previously thought, the right to a fair trial before being judged guilty and terminated. Or, as Stephen Colbert parodied Tuesday night: “Due process just means there’s a process that you do.” The administration simply wants us to trust that they will not abuse their newfound powers of execution. Bizarrely, the right wing is OK with this; or rather, judging from their

public statements, they (the non-Ron Paul presidential candidates, at least) find the policy not quite extreme enough. Even more bizarrely: Democrats don’t seem particularly stressed over it either. Here we see how party loyalty distorts independent belief: If this was a Bush — or, God help us, a Romney, Santorum or Gingrich — trying to pull something like this, Dems would be frothing at the mouth. Instead, they cheer this erosion of individual liberty. But Obama won’t be president forever. U.S. politics are reactionary: Even if Obama wins re-election, we’ll have a Republican executive soon enough. So while the GOP pushes the limits of extremism, let’s not lose sight of extremity in the White House. The next tenant may not be quite as trustworthy.

Metro’s Dorothy Robinson shares her take on the world of gossip

dorothy.robinson@metro.us

Magazine covers: Doin’ the bump As a fellow pregnant lady, I’m all for Jessica Simpson posing on the cover of Elle magazine while hoisting around a fetus. Yay for the miracle of life and all that. But why oh why did she have to do it naked? With the exception of Demi Moore’s famous 1991 nude pregnancy photo for Vanity Fair, which set the bar for pregnancy photo shoots, why have any of these stars shown off their naked bellies on magazine covers? It’s as though these magazines — and

starlets — need to flaunt the skin, just so you won’t mistake them for being, well, fat. Because a woman with actual curves on a fashion magazine? What a crazy concept! But perhaps I’m wrong and am just being a prude. What do you think of the omnipresent naked pregnant celebrity cover trend? Do you want more naked bump in your life or do you prefer your pregnant celebrities lookin’ good — but with maybe a shirt on?

@nicolerichie No grandma, I don’t think you’re ready for bikini season

There’s a girl in there!

film, “Casa de mi Padre,” turned out to be quite revealing. “Someone had the either wonderful or horrible task of putting makeup on my ass,”

he tells Rolling Stone magazine. But baring all isn’t something that bothers the “Saturday Night Live” alum. “This kind of thing is not a big deal to me,” he explains. “In college, they had this thing where you’d run naked on fraternity row, and if anyone challenged me, I’d be happy to do it.” Another college experience he was happy to do? Losing his virginity at age 21. “In my mind’s eye, it seemed like the way it was supposed to

happen,” he says, admitting that his mom had assumed he’d lost it much earlier.

Hewitt loves her boobs, too Jennifer Love Hewitt has some-

thing in common with her fans when it comes to appreciating certain parts of her anatomy. “It’s horrible to say, but I like my boobs,” the former “Ghost Whisperer” star tells Maxim magazine when

asked what body part she is most proud of. “They’ve always served me well. They’re good.” Well, maybe they haven’t served her that well recently, the currently single Hewitt admits: “It might sound so stupid, but guys do not hit on me,” she says. “I’m not really sure why.”

Snooki confirms the pregnancy rumors “Jersey Shore” star Nicole

Simpson is worried her daughter won’t be girlie enough. “I swear, I will croak if she asks me for a pair of Nikes instead of Christian Louboutins,” she tells the magazine. “We’re gonna have this athletic girl and I won’t even be able to take her shopping, because all she’s going to want is sports bras and Nikes.”

“Snooki” Polizzi has taken to

the cover of Us Weekly to announce what everyone already knew: that she’s pregnant and engaged. “I have different priorities now,” Polizzi says. “As long as I know I’m ready and [fiance Jionni LaValle] is ready.” The reality star admits that discovery of her pregnancy — right after New Year’s — caused a moment of panic. Her first thought? “‘S---, I’ve been drinking,’” she says. “I was worried.”

Illuminating the Haggadah With ‘New American Haggadah,’ Jonathan Safran Foer and Nathan Englander hope to provide a more accessible version of the Seder text

That Jonathan Safran Foer is part of the team behind “New American Haggadah” — a revised English translation of the sacred Jewish prayer book — isn’t entirely surprising. The intricacies, subtleties, trickeries and delicacies of language are as much a part of his writings as the themes of family, tradition and Judaism that act as the fleeting scaffolding of much of his work. And yet, Foer doesn’t consider himself a person of faith, let alone a rabbinical scholar. “When I started thinking about what it might read like,

what it might look like, what its function might be in the world, I gave a lot of thought to people who might translate it,” says Foer. “Should it be Hebrew language translators? But then I started thinking, what are some other possibilities? Could we create something that wasn’t so obscure? In my mind, a lot of English translations are unnecessarily confusing.” Ultimately, Foer recruited longtime friend and fellow fiction author Nathan Englander to do the new translation of the text, which is read at the Seder table each year and plays a central role in the celebration. Far from the flashy project that you could reasonably expect from two young writers with a large bag of literary playthings, “New American Haggadah” has a quiet reverence for its ancient source material, reflected in both the translation and essays by writers including Lemony

Snicket and Rebecca Newberger Goldstein. “I’ve been going to Seders as long as I’ve been alive. They always meant a great deal to me, but I always suspected that they could mean even more,” says Foer. “The Seder is in so many ways constrained by the Haggadah — it directs the conversations that people have, it affects the pacing of the evening. It’s hard to have a good, engaging Seder without a good, engaging Haggadah.” MONICA WEYMOUTH

C

onan O’Brien recently offered a solution for the lonely-hearted: Watch his video of celebrities flirting directly with viewers. From John Krasinski to Emmy Rossum to Fred Armisen, the stars looked at the camera and acted like they were meeting you in a bar and hoped to hook up. Some of those flirters might be looking for love, but what about John Krasinski, who is married? Do you think his wife minded? In this case, he may have just been playing a role, but people in relationships deal with this question all the time: Is flirting good or bad? The answer is that it depends. For everyone, putting yourself out there with other people of the opposite sex and

making smart conversation helps you feel desirable and confident. If, however, you are already in a relationship, then you want to make sure all that heightened sexual energy is stored up for your partner, who you will share it with later. If your relationship is solid, then a little flirting is OK. Sometimes watching your partner flirt can even give you a sense of pride. But if it makes you feel threatened, then it might not be such a good thing. If the foundation of a relationship isn’t strong, it can increase your feelings of doubt and mistrust. The person doing the flirting might feel good, but it might make the other partner feel insecure.

I

f that’s the case, it’s a good time to take stock and realize that rather than looking outward, you should focus your energy inward to work on strengthening your trust. You can do this by being affectionate, complimentary and expressing your love. If you still

feel uncomfortable when your partner flirts with others, it can also help to set ground rules. For example, a little conversation might be OK — but if it goes beyond that and someone offers or asks for a phone number, the answer is no. The goal is to make flirting work as a positive, rather than a negative, within your relationship.

Stay sharp and be cool. Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 23. It’s not that you won’t have adequate drive and ambition to handle everyday matters, it’s more likely that you will be tempted to take on something that exceeds your limitations. Be honest about your abilities. Scorpio Oct. 24-Nov. 22. It won’t add any luster to your image if you deliberately do things that buck the will of the majority, just to prove your independence. All it will do is make you look selfish. Sagittarius Nov. 23-Dec. 21. Limit the discussion of family problems to the participants only. If you talk to others about private matters, you’ll be inviting them to butt in and introduce added dissension. Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19.

Turner’s breakout performance helps Sixers rout Celtics Guard to remain starter for rest of season

LETTERS@METRO.US GOT AN OPINION? SEND US YOUR THOUGHTS

Evan Turner had 26 points and nine rebounds last night.

The Sixers had an off day Tuesday. Evan Turner didn’t take advantage of it. After going 1-for-12 in his first start of the season on Monday night, Turner wasn’t about to rest. Instead, the newly minted starting shooting guard went to the gym to get shots up with assistant coach Michael Curry. It worked. In a big way. Making his second straight start last night, Turner went off for a career-high 26 points on 11-for-19 shooting. It cemented his place in the starting five and propelled the Sixers’ to a much-needed 103-71 destruction of the Celtics. “Sometimes it’s just the basketball gods doing their thing,” Turner said. After his breakout performance, coach Doug Collins said he planned to start Turner the rest of the season — barring injury, of course. “I was really happy for Evan Turner. He had the bounce back in his step,” Collins said. “He was playing confident basketball.” Turner’s first two NBA sea-

Three things we saw: Elton Brand took a full week off to rest his thumb and legs at the end of February. Now he’s getting lift on his jumper again and rebounding at a plus-level. It’s not $80 million worth, but Brand isn’t a liability out there. He had 18 points and nine boards. The Sixers entered the night having lost eight of their last 10 games, thus seeing their lead in the Atlantic Division shrink to one game. If this team is going to accomplish its goal of making the second round of the playoffs, holding off the Celtics and Knicks is a must. Thaddeus Young didn’t play last night after coming down with an illness. He’s day-today ahead of tomorrow’s game against the Utah Jazz.

sons have been anything but smooth. After winning National Player of the Year honors as a senior at Ohio State, he was the no-brainer No. 2 overall pick in the 2010 draft. But a woeful jumper left him with a bit role off the bench. Bust whispers and even recent rumors of offthe-court issues have plagued him. To Turner's credit, he never whined about his role or sulked. “I get to wake up and play basketball for a living, I don’t really have any problems like normal people have,” Turner said. “I’ve been blessed and complaining about anything else would be really childish of me.” Now Turner gives the starting unit another highly athletic defender and ball-handler. Last night, he guarded Rajon Rondo, brought the ball up the floor and snatched nine rebounds. It was finally a performance worthy of the No. 2 overall pick. ADAM LEVITAN

Temple officially joins Big East for all sports GETTY IMAGES

Weeks of speculation were finally confirmed yesterday as Temple was introduced as the newest member of the Big East Conference. The Owls will play in the Big East for football next season and all other sports starting in 2013. Temple football, which was kicked out of the conference for a lack of success back in 2004, is proud to be back. “We have a real football program,” said Lewis Katz, chairman of Temple’s athletic committee. “So we think we’re going to give the Big East exactly what they deserve, and really they’ve given us financially the opportunity to run a stable program.” Temple reportedly had to pay a $6 million exit fee out

of the Mid-American Conference, where the Owls played previously as a football-only school, and $1 million to the Atlantic 10, where it has played for all other sports. Villanova had reportedly expressed concern about Temple’s entry into the Big East. The school was worried about splitting the television revenue locally. Those fears were worked out and everyone is content. “It’s critical that the conference and both universities succeed in Philadelphia,” Villanova president Rev. Peter M. Donohue said yesterday in a statement. “Even as my loyalty and obligation is to Villanova, we recognized early on that we could achieve this win-win-win, which ultimately we did.” METRO

NHL officials letting guys play down the stretch Flyers committed seven minors since Feb. 25 But team has had just six man-advantages GETTY IMAGES

With only 17 games left, everyone is gearing up for the playoffs. That goes for the referees, too. Sunday night against Washington marked only the second time this season the Flyers held their opponent to no power plays. The Flyers say they’ve been working on discipline all season, but part of the reason they aren’t going to the penalty box is because referees call fewer penalties at the end of the year. That’s mainly in anticipation of the playoffs, when a lot of infractions go uncalled. “I think the last two games the referees have been trying to let us play,� Max Talbot said. “You feel like the playoffs are coming around the corner. I

speak for myself, I don’t mind it. As long as it is fair for both sides and they are going to let some things go, but at the same time it's hockey.� In the last four games, the Flyers have only committed seven minor penalties and opposing teams haven’t gotten a power play goal against them since Feb. 25. But the calls go both ways. The Flyers have had only six man-advantages in the four-game stretch. “There’s not many power plays,� said Jaromir Jagr. “And there’s a lot more hooks. I feel it myself; I’m losing the puck I

got hooked. Maybe the first five games, 10 games they would go [to the penalty box], but not anymore. It happens to both teams.� The advantage for the Flyers comes in part because their penalty kill has been in the bottom third of the league for most of the season and they lead the league in penalty minutes. Fewer penalties gives more ice time to Zac Rinaldo, who leads in penalty minutes. “They’re allowing little things that they didn’t at the beginning of the season,� Rinaldo said. “That works to our advantage. Can’t complain about it.�
