‘Land grab’ passed City Council on Thursday passed contentious legislation enabling the city to seize 17 Point Breeze properties and set them aside for affordable housing. The bill raised an uproar, especially among developers who claimed they had plans for the now vacant parcels of land. Blog posts and online petitions – including one on Change.org that had more than 950 signatures as of Thursday — denounced the move as a "land grab." METRO/AW

Coffers empty, city tourism agency may get new boost Proposal to raise cash for money-strapped promotional group by hiking city hotel tax Councilwoman says 0.3 percent increase isn’t onerous RIKARD LARMA/METRO

In a city long billed as a historic destination, Philadelphia's promotional funding has been hard-hit by budget battles. Gov. Tom Corbett this year slashed state dollars to the Greater Philadelphia Marketing Tourism Corporation, the city's principal short-stay advertising vehicle, by more than 98 percent, and the city suspended its $2.5 million in annual financial support to the GPTMC three years ago, though it is expected to restore 10 percent this year. The GPTMC is now chiefly funded by proceeds from the city's hotel tax, which Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds Brown has proposed increasing to help offset the losses in government dollars. The GPTMC has so far been able to do more with less. As its budget continued to drop precipitously, overnight visits to the region grew 66 percent between its creation 1997 and 2011 – six times faster than the national average. Revenue from the tax increase — from 1.2 to 1.5 percent — would be split between the GPTMC and Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau.

Tourists, here snapping the clothespin landmark, have stayed overnight in Philadelphia 66 percent more often since 1997.

Support from hotel lobby The Greater Philadelphia Hotel Association, the city’s largest industry lobbying group, supports the measure. “We’re trying to be proactive and we support our two marketing agencies,” Executive Director Ed Grose said. “We need to make sure that they have the financial resources to continue to market Philadelphia. They’ve both lost a lot of money over the past few years in grants from the state, and we need to help them find other forms of funding.” He said that he’s been seeing many other cities raise hotel tax rates to help creatively fund their tourism advertising, but at about 50 cents per overnight stay, he doesn’t see the financial impact harming Philly’s lodging industry. However, according to Grose, the solution is not all-encompassing. “With both agencies, this will help, but they’ll still need to find other sources of funding to market our city.”

Fanfare for the 76ers is nearly what isn’t was when Bynum announced his arrival Aug. 14 at the National Constitution Center.

Bynum gets action in different court Andrew Bynum has been a nonentity on the court for the Sixers. On the other hand, Bynum’s off-the-court antics have been nothing short of legendary. Last week, it was revealed that he reinjured a balky knee in a leisurely bowling match in Philadelphia. Before that, his new hairstyle was being debated on sports blogs throughout the land, as well as on ESPN’s version of the “Today” show: “First Take.” Now, according to gossip website TMZ on Thursday, Bynum is in the midst of a court battle with his former neighbors in Bynum’s quiet California suburb of Los Angeles. After he sued them for being bad neighbors, they countersued him, TMZ reported.

Horsham doctor at the center of an alleged pill mill has now been charged in the overdose death of one of his suspected co-conspirators. Federal prosecutors have accused Dr. Norman Werther, 71, of conspiring with six separate groups of drug dealers to

illegally distribute prescription painkillers from February 2009 until August 2011. In new charges announced Thursday, prosecutors said Werther prescribed 180 pills containing oxycodone to one co-conspirator, resulting in the co-conspirator’s death. In August 2011, prosecutors charged Werther and 51 co-defendants in connection with the illegal distribution. Nine new defendants were charged Thursday. If convicted of all charges, Werther faces at least 20 years in prison and possibly life. METRO/SDL

The Sixers center claims in the lawsuit that he has been constantly harassed because the couple objects to “his profession, his race, his friends, his cars and his taste in music.” Well, two can play at that game — as long as it’s not basketball. The neighbors, Raymond and Cindy Beckett, are countersuing on the grounds that Bynum is a terrible neighbor himself. According to TMZ, they claim that Bynum has pulled guns on them, wafted marijuana smoke in their faces, let his dogs run loose, raced luxury cars at dangerous speeds and blasted video games at “window-shaking volumes.” MIKE GREGER

WASHINGTON LUNCH PALES Opinion

TOM FOREMAN

POLITICAL CORRESPONDENT FOR CNN

I’ve been through some awkward lunches. A midday rendezvous at Arby’s with a bitter ex-girlfriend comes to mind, and there was the time I took a colleague to the Golden Corral only to find out he was vegan. Still, it’s hard to imagine a repast more painful than that sit-down at the White House this week between President Obama and his recent rival, Mitt Romney. Since cameras were not permitted, I’ve spent much of the afternoon imagining the conversation.

M

itt, I’d glad you came,” says the president, with a broad smile and an outstretched hand. “The race was long and difficult, but we need to show that even fierce rivals can put aside their differences.” “I agree, Mr. President. I only wish you’d let me host, because my house is bigger.” “Which one?” “All of them!” “Ha! Good one, Mitt.” I can well conjure up some other comments: “Yeah, well how about I pick up 47 percent of the tab?” and “How would you know? You weren’t even born here!” and “Is

that a dog on top of your car?” My reporter’s cynicism tells me the lunch was probably all that and more, despite the cheery press release about a spirit of cooperation and Southwestern chicken salad. But my citizen’s desperate need for optimism makes me hope it was not. I want to believe that in fact somehow, someday, some way the battling factions in our government can start getting along again. They don’t have to abandon their principles, but they don’t need to stab each other with the cutlery over their differences either. They don’t have to back down from a fight, but neither do they have to tip over the table and break the china at every cross word.

o for the moment, I’m going to give them the benefit of the doubt.

Dec. 14 — The first installment of Peter Jackson’s latest Tolkien trilogy is sure to pick up at least a few technical awards for its daring method of shooting film at twice the speed of regular film (48 frames per second, as opposed to the traditional 24).

Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman, center) is confronted by some cranky dwarves.

After her Oscar win for 2008’s “The Hurt Locker,” Kathryn Bigelow presents another military drama in the Middle East, this time following the hunt and execution of Osama Bin Laden.

Some Oscar wins are practically in the hands of director Tom Hooper already for his adaptation of the Broadway musical, originally penned as a novel by Victor Hugo. By recording the live singing performances of stars Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway and others, the film stands to break new ground for musical adaptations that eschew the cheese factor.

Winter releases

‘Jack Reacher’ Dec. 21 — In this adaptation of the Lee Child crime series, Tom Cruise plays a ex-military homicide investigator who steps in to solve a case in which a trained sniper is accused of killing five random innocents.

The best of the rest ‘The Collection’

Nov. 30 — As a sequel to “The Collector,” this film’s psychopathic killer’s only survivor is hired to rescue a young woman who is set to become the latest member of the collection.

‘Playing for Keeps’

Dec. 7 — Gerard Butler seems

to be the male Katherine Heigl of romantic comedies. Does it matter that “The Bounty Hunter” was terrible? Not to Butler fans. Here he stars as an ex-soccer player who attempts to put his life back together with the help of an old flame.

‘The Guilt Trip’

Dec. 19 — This road trip movie starring Seth Rogen and Barbra Streisand aims to plumb the treasure trove of jokes to be made about a mother and son making a road trip across the country.

‘This is 40’

Dec. 21 — As the “sort of

sequel” to 2007’s “Knocked Up,” this Judd Apatow film follows committed couple Debbie and Pete (Leslie Mann and Paul Rudd) as they struggle with aging and each other.

Jan. 11 (limited) — Dustin

Hoffman directs this comedy about a British retirement home for opera singers and the longtime resident who reunites with a lost love. Pretty much, it’s “Best Exotic Marigold Quartet.”

‘Gangster Squad’

Jan. 11— If Ryan Gosling and

Emma Stone aren’t enough to get you interested, this film looks set to be one of the best winter releases. The action flick follows the LAPD’s struggle with the East Coast Mafia during the ’40s and ’50s.

‘Movie 43’

Jan. 25 — Like those monster

ensemble rom-coms like “Valentine’s Day” and “New Year’s Eve,” this comedy packs in a load of stars but promises to be a least a little bit more enjoyable than the aforementioned cheesefests.

‘Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters’

Jan. 25 — The name pretty much sums it up — a modern take on the classic fairy tale in which we see Hansel and Gretel on a pursuit for vengeance against the witches who tortured them as children. OLIVIA MORROW AND HEIDI PATALANO

Making it up New exhibit at the Brandywine celebrates history of pop-up books More than half a century before movie-goers were handed their first pair of cardboard glasses, pop-up books brought two-dimensional illustrations to 3-D life. For their holiday exhibition this year, the Brandywine River Museum explores more than 100 years of the medium’s history in “Pop-Up! Illustration in 3D.” For curator Christine Podmaniczky, the major appeal of pop-up books is

in the element of surprise. “You almost have to gasp when you open the book and this construction unfolds before you,” she says. “You get that sense of awe and wonder.” The exhibition begins in the late 19th century with some early examples of the form and continues with mid-century examples from England and America. The 1960s brought a renaissance in pop-ups, which began with inno-

+ Carman Luntzel will miss her customers but says she “decided to take the opportunity to go on and try something different with my life.”

Cocktail of the week

The end of a legendary era

After 22 years in business, Carman’s Country Kitchen is closing in two short weeks Owner, chef and Philadelphia treasure Carman Luntzel on what’s next Hot chef

F

or the past 22 years, Carman’s Country Kitchen has been an offbeat South Philly staple. The itty-bitty corner brunch spot — adorned with various knickknacks and coffee mugs you wouldn’t want your mom to see — is known not only for its food but also for the woman in the back cooking it. Carman Luntzel is the charming owner responsible for it all, and if you haven’t had the fortune of sitting down at her table, you’ll need to make room in your schedule immediately: This country kitchen is, we’re sad to report, due to close its doors Dec. 16.

Say it ain’t so! Why did you decide to close?

I didn’t. My landlord decided to take it over himself and open a pizza shop. He sent me a letter about the building and I called him right away. Finally, he told me that he didn’t want to rent the place anymore, he wanted it for himself. I thought it over and decided to take the opportunity to go on and try some-

You’ve only got until Dec. 16 to catch brunch — and check out the tchotchkes — at Carman’s Country Kitchen.

If you go Carman’s Country Kitchen (1301 S. 11th St.) is open through Sunday, Dec. 16.

thing different with my life.

What’s that going to be?

I’m moving to the corner of North and South Carolina. It’s got a great backyard for my animals and my grandkids who live nearby. By early next year, I want to start as a private chef, making meals for people in their houses and on their boats. I’ll do that for a year or two. Then what?

Hopefully I can go work in other countries. I love to travel — I shop and cook wherever I go. You have to be kind of out there and comfortable with dealing with people. What will you miss most about Philly and your restaurant?

My customers. They’re outspoken, educated and opinionated people. But I’ll be just one exit out of Charlotte and with plenty of room if they want to visit. Will you be going out with a bang on the last day?

Nope, just steady as she goes and keep the boat straight. JULIA WEST

When doing an Internet search for music by the electronic act Tanlines, it’s inevitable that a much more popular release by a musician who has nothing to do with the Brooklyn-based duo will pop up. “Oh, you mean Luke Bryan? ‘Tailgates & Tanlines’?� asks Jesse Cohen. It’s almost a novelty to hear a guy who plays keyboards, drums and bass for a dance group to name-check a country superstar. But Cohen recently became quite familiar with the album that shares a word with his band’s name. “We did a tour of the South two weeks ago, which we had never done, and I made sure to bring that, just to finally listen to it, because it’s a huge album and it sold like over a million copies this year, so it’s always been all over my Google Alerts,� he elaborates. Cohen says while Luke Bryan’s brand of baseball-hat country is not exactly his fa-

Cohen, left, and Emm bring the jams to Union Transfer on Saturday. For more info, visit www.utphilly.com

vorite type of music, he does appreciate the tunes for what they are. In much of the conversation, Cohen comes across as a person who strives for positivity but is honest about the negatives. This ethos has a lot in common with Tanlines’ debut, “Mixed Emotions,� which came out this past spring. The music is upbeat, but there’s conflict

within the lyrics and rhythms. “We wanted to write an album that’s an honest reflection of who we are as two individuals,� says Cohen of himself and singer/guitarist Eric Emm. “It’s that mix of light and dark, happy and sad, and upbeat and melancholic at the same time.� PAT HEALY

Starting safeties Nate Allen (left) and Kurt Coleman (right) might be playing for their jobs in these final five games for the Eagles.

‘Spoiler’ Birds have plenty left to play for in final weeks

Coaches looking to upset playoff hopefuls Pride, jobs on line in 2013 Eagles prep for rival Cowboys The Eagles have five games left in this lost season. A campaign that started with talk of Super Bowls and dynasties has been whittled down to just five meaningless games. It’s meaningless to the average fan. But some in the organization see it a different way. The Eagles have a chance to crush dreams down the stretch, playing against opponents (Cowboys, Buccaneers, Bengals, Redskins, Giants) jockeying for postseason positions. “Now, we certainly are in a spoiler-type role here, and that can be very rewarding,” offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said. “So, we have discussed that and it’s very rewarding that way.”

ON TV SUNDAY Eagles at Cowboys, 8:20 p.m. (NBC)

There are other things at play here, too. Veterans insist they are playing for pride. After all, it’s no fun being the league’s laughingstock. “I play every day for my pride,” said DeMeco Ryans. “It’s one thing, you play for pride — that’s big for me.” Some guys, whether they want to admit it or not, are playing for their jobs. A new coaching staff is inevitable in 2013, meaning every name on the roster — and every play — is being evaluated from here on out. In other words, jobs are

on the line. “I’m not worried about that,” safety Kurt Coleman said. “Regardless if Andy is still here [or] if he’s not here, I get traded, I got to put out good film. I got to be able to play to the best of my ability, and I’m trying to get this team in a position to end on a good note.” Even so, that doesn’t mean Coleman is going to change his approach or preparation. He doesn’t need to. “Continue to play hard, continue to study my ass off every week and try and get these guys in the best position to succeed,” he said.

3 Concussed

Vick fails head test Eagles QB Mike Vick failed an imPACT test and couldn’t be cleared for practice. Nick Foles will start Sunday, as expected. Head athletic trainer Rick Burkholder was scheduled to release an update on Vick and concussed running back LeSean McCoy on Friday. Vick’s condition reportedly has worsened, according to FOX’s Howard Eskin. METRO

MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR Fantasy sports

ADAM LEVITAN

At long last, the pot of gold at the end of the fantasy rainbow is in sight. The playoffs are coming, friends.

ALEVITAN@METRO.US

With most leagues set to enter the single-elimination phase of their season in Week 14, we need to get ready. There’s no point to qualify for the playoffs and then get bounced in the first round. Ask Matt Ryan and the Falcons how that feels.

NFL news

No thanks Darren McFadden (foot) is practicing again and appears on track to play Sunday. Thanks for nothing, buddy. Not only did he ruin seasons of his owners, but now he’s going to ruin the season of owners that shrewdly picked up Marcel Reece. Look for them to share work Sunday, leaving neither one as a reliable option in Oakland.

NBA impressions

Special teams are special The easiest place to ensure you have good matchups is at defense and kicker. Waste a bench spot now on the Browns (vs. Chiefs Week 14), Seahawks (vs. Cardinals) or Jaguars (vs. Jets). Don’t get stuck with the Texans against the Patriots just because you’ve been riding them all year. At kicker, the formula is simple. We want a guy in a high-scoring offense playing in good weather, preferably at home. Greg “Legatron” Zuerlein has a cool nickname,

but he’s in Buffalo Week 14. Avoid.

Handcuffing elsewhere We’ve talked plenty about how important running-back handcuffs are. But at this point in the season, we can handcuff other positions. If Julio Jones or Roddy White went down, Harry Douglas would be a solid play. Wes Welker owners should have Julian Edelman on their bench. Matthew Stafford owners won’t do much better than Shaun Hill as a backup. Don’t let injury ruin your dreams.

Time shares We need to have backup plans if our runners are about to find themselves in time shares. Marcel Reece owners should be shaking in their boots. Felix Jones’ owners have sucked all they can out of him as DeMarco Murray nears a return. Matt Forte’s ankle woes figure to expand Michael Bush’s role. Arian Foster could be rested some in Week 16 or 17 if the 10-1 Texans lock up the No. 1 seed.

Duncan Sell high: Dump these guys before they cool off.

1 2 3

Tim Duncan, PF, SAS — At age 36, he hasn’t missed a game and is above his career averages in shooting percentages/blocks. There’s no way this lasts. O.J. Mayo, SG, DAL — Shots and touches won’t be as plentiful once Dirk Nowtizki (knee) returns. Mayo’s absurd 51.2 3-point shooting will tail off. Jamal Crawford, SG, LAC — Chauncey Billups is back and starting at shooting guard, squeezing minutes across the board. Crawford is now a complementary piece.

Stash Harry Douglas, the Falcons receiver, could be fantasy gold if something happens to Julio Jones or Rodd White. GETTY IMAGES

Ryan Broyles WR, Lions Titus Young is in the doghouse and isn’t getting out. The offense runs smoother with more reliable Broyles across from Megatron.

Bryce Brown RB, Eagles LeSean McCoy isn’t close to getting cleared from his concussion — and the Eagles are dead. Brown just might hit the hole harder anyway.
