BSL, El to run all night on summer weekends 24-7. SEPTA will decide after a three-month window whether to reinstate the allnight service. Conrad Benner worked for a cafe in Center City earning $8 an hour, with minimum tips, while living in Fishtown in his late teens and early 20s. He would finish his shift around 1 a.m. “And I would just take a cab home,” the now 28-year-old said. “Literally a third of my pay that day.” He couldn’t take SEPTA’s NiteOwl buses, because, let’s face it: “They take an incredible amount of time, and I had to close so I didn’t have time to wait 45 minutes for a
bus that may or may not come. And if it did come, [it] would be crowded and kind of creepy,” he added. For those in similar situations, SEPTA has made some changes. Officials announced this week that it would institute a pilot program this summer that would keep the El operational from 5 a.m. Friday until midnight Monday morning starting in June. No specific date has been set. While it’s still pending board approval, officials have set aside between $100,000 and $200,000 in the operating budget to start the pilot program. The program will start in midJune and will run through Labor Day weekend. It would offer 24-hour service for the weekend on the El and Broad Street Line. Right now, the El stops running
“The reason we’re looking at this is because we do think the demand is there, but the pilot gives us the ability to take a good look at it and put us in a strong position to make a decision from there.” Busch around 12:30 a.m. And those NiteOwl buses will not be in service. “It was the early ‘90s when we switched over to the NiteOwl buses,” said SEPTA spokesman Andrew Busch. “And a lot has changed.” Center City blossomed. The Millennials, that agegroup between 19 and 34, aren’t as keen about buying cars and buying houses because of college debt and low-paying jobs. So, they moved closer to the their jobs in the city and bicycles and public transporta-
tion became the preferred modes of transportation for their daily commutes. Also, more and more, empty-nesters are moving closer to Center City for convenience and accessibility. “Philadelphia is seeing an increase in population,” Benner said. “Young people are going to college here and are staying here. I’m glad SEPTA has sort of stepped up and realized this.” TOMMY ROWAN @tommyrowan
Benner, who runs the popular website streetsdept.com that showcases city street art, created a petition to extend El hours to 24-7, 365 days a year. More than 2,000 signed the “SEPTA 24-7” petition. •
“We appreciated his interest,” Busch said, “but we’ve been looking at doing something like this before the petition came along.”
Benner quipped: “SEPTA plans a lot of stuﬀ, but they don’t seem to necessarily enact a lot of stuﬀ, so I’m glad we could push them in one way or another.”
PATCO. Construction starts on parking lots Construction has started on a $2.6 million, sevenmonth project that will improve the parking lots at PATCO’s Collingswood and Ferry Avenue stations, officials announced. All asphalt will be removed as well as portions of concrete curb and sidewalks, according to a news release. Parking lots will remain open in both stations throughout the duration of the projects. However in Collingswood, there will be fewer parking spaces available. After construction is complete, 80 new permanent spaces will be in.

This project is the last stage of the $9.8 million, multiyear effort to repave all parking lots and access roads at PATCO stations.

Mayor Michael Nutter will sign a long-awaited executive order on Wednesday to modify the cityâ€™s policy for complying with Immigration and Customs Enforcement hold detainers, a move that local immigrant advocacy groups lobbied for passionately at a City Council hearing in March. The mayorâ€™s spokesman, Mark McDonald, declined to comment on the executive order ahead of the signing. But immigrant advocacy groups are already claiming victory. â€œWe are incredibly proud to say that we will now have one of the most progressive policies in the country which, in practice, will end the use of ICE holds in our city,â€? said Erika Almiron, executive director of Juntos. The Inquirer previously reported that Nutter intends to change the ICE

District attorney pushes review of innocence claims Justice. The D.A.’s oﬃce is instituting a new partnership with The Innocence Project to resolve questionable criminal verdicts. District Attorney Seth Williams announced Tuesday he has opened a new unit focused entirely on investigating wrongful conviction claims. The PA Innocence Project will refer vetted innocence claims to the Conviction Review Unit for processing.
“This is all part of an ongoing effort to ensure that we’re not locking up the wrong people,” said PA Innocence Project legal director Marissa Bluestine. The new unit will be led by 27-year veteran prosecutor Mark Gilson. “We’re open to the fact that mistakes can happen, and it’s certainly possible that someone innocent could end up in jail,” Gilson said. Gilson cited the infamous Lex Street Massacre case, which he prosecuted. Charges were dropped against the first four suspects after “reasonable doubts” arose, Gilson said. “That wrong was right-
ed,” Gilson said, who later successfully prosecuted the four actual killers. The PA Innocence Project, based at Temple Law School, will refer vetted cases to the new unit. “This is the right thing to do,” Williams said in a statement. “But let’s be clear, this is not a get-outof-prison free card for convicted felons. While we are looking at these cases with an open mind, it does not mean that we will agree with all or any new claims of innocence and or evidence.” SAM NEWHOUSE @scnewhouse

Boston. Voices of gratitude, defiance at bombing memorial
White supremacist charged with murder The suspect in the killing of three people at two Jewish facilities near Kansas City over the weekend could face the death penalty on state murder charges ﬁled Tuesday, prosecutors said. Frazier Glenn Cross, 73,
who also goes by the name Glenn Miller, likely will face federal charges that also could carry the death penalty in the killings Sunday afternoon in Overland Park, Kan., an upscale suburb of Kansas City, Mo. Cross was known by law enforcement and human rights groups as a former senior member of the Ku Klux Klan movement and someone who has repeat-
edly expressed hatred for Jewish people. None of the people he is accused of killing were Jewish. Prosecutors charged Cross on Tuesday in Johnson County, Kan., with one count of capital murder in the fatal shooting of Reat Underwood, 14, and his grandfather William Corporon, 69, outside a Jewish community center on Sunday.
The Jewish Community Center where Underwood and Corporon were shot will hold an interfaith service of “unity and hope” on Thursday. REUTERS Bond

Vice President Joe Biden joined other leaders and survivors of the Boston Marathon bombing to share messages of thanks and defiance on Tuesday at a tribute to the three people killed and 264 wounded in the attack exactly one year ago. From Patrick Downes — who lost a leg when a pair of homemade bombs ripped through the crowds at the race’s finish line — to Biden, speakers recalled how those on the scene, from police officers to spectators, reacted immediately to help the wounded amid the chaos on April 15, 2013. Former Boston Mayor Thomas Menino, who managed the response to the attack in the final year of his two decades in office, recalled the struggles of the families of Martin Richard, 8, Krystle Campbell, 29, and Chinese national Lu Lingzi, 23, who died in the largest mass-casualty attack on U.S. soil since Sept. 11, 2001. “We would never wish the devastation and pain we have experienced on any of you,” Downes said. “However, we do wish that all of you, at some point in your lives, feel
When you put great minds in the same place, amazing things happen.
Downes, who had been standing near the ﬁnish line with his wife when the bombs went oﬀ, causing each to lose a leg, told the crowd of about 2,5000 people that he had been impressed by the city’s outpouring of support for the wounded.
as loved as we have every day of this past year.” Following the ceremony, the crowd walked down Boylston Street, the final stretch of the marathon, amid heavy rain and high winds to watch officials raise an American flag at the finish line. At 2:49 p.m., the time the first bomb went off, the city observed a moment of silence. Afterwards, churches throughout Boston tolled their bells and ships in the city’s harbor sounded their horns. Federal prosecutors contend that a pair of ethnic Chechen brothers placed the pressurecooker bombs at the race’s crowded finish line and three days later shot dead a police officer in an unsuccessful attempt to steal his gun.

Conquering tomorrow’s healthcare challenges demands more than today’s thinking. And Jefferson’s new leader, Dr. Stephen K. Klasko, believes it will require a revolutionary process. By combining an established academic medical center, a dedicated health sciences university, dynamic innovators and partnerships with visionary philanthropists, we can begin forging new ways of educating tomorrow’s healthcare leaders, delivering life-saving procedures and creating advancements once unimaginable. It’s the type of philosophy that is destined to make a world of change. All because of a promise that begins today.

Ukraine launches â€˜special operationâ€™ against separatists
MH370. Undersea drone hunt for plane may take two months A U.S. Navy underwater drone sent to search for a missing Malaysian jetliner on the floor of the Indian Ocean could take up to two months to scour a 600 square km area where the plane is believed to have sunk, U.S. search authorities said on Tuesday. The prediction coincided with the end to the abbreviated first mission by the Bluefin-21 autono-
mous underwater vehicle six hours into what was meant to be a 16-hour operation on Monday after it exceeded its 14,750 feet depth limit and was automatically returned to the surface. The introduction of the undersea drone marks a slower paced phase in the search for Malaysia Airlines MH370 which disappeared on March 8. REUTERS
