The city is targeting more than 450 illegal advertising benches on sidewalks throughout Philadelphia, with a plan to remove them and fine their owners beginning next week. The concrete-and-wood benches are regarded as safety hazards and eyesores by the city, said acting Streets Commissioner David Perri. After originally planning to begin Saturday, the city Thursday decided to give owners five more days to voluntarily remove them. A four-member Streets Department crew, using a flatbed truck and front-end loader, is scheduled to begin confiscating the benches Thursday.

Following a poll that showed a growing majority of Philadelphians concerned about the city's high tax burden, Mayor Nutter pledged Tuesday not to seek any new taxes in the coming budget, though some recent increases billed as temporary may become permanent. "The mayor has no intention of requesting a tax increase," his spokesman, Mark McDonald, said. City residents have endured four years of tax increases, including two "temporary" property tax increases, as the city has scrambled to make up for revenue lost from the recession.

Robert Jawer, 91, of Rydal, a local television pioneer and producer whose career at KYW spanned almost 45 years, died Friday, Dec. 20, of complications from pneumonia at his home. Jawer was an early believer in the value of using television for advertisements, and is believed to have been Philadelphia's first broadcast television salesman. Raised in West Philadelphia, Mr. Jawer served in the Army during World War II. He was returning home when a magazine article about the then-new medium caught his eye, and after graduating from the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School, he enrolled in the Television Workshop in New York City to learn the basics.

On a day when City Council wrapped up years of work on several major bills and bid adieu to six colleagues with more than a century of combined experience, Councilman Darrell L. Clarke was looking to the future. Clarke, who is slated to become Council president Jan. 2, introduced two bills Thursday at the final meeting of the term, perhaps offering a preview of his leadership. Both bills seek ways to generate money for the city without raising taxes - something the Nutter administration has been forced to do three years in a row. "I think it's time for us to come up with another strategy," Clarke said.

SAN FRANCISCO - By all measures, it wasn't a good day for employees of Yahoo or USA Today : Pay was cut, and so were thousands of jobs. And it didn't matter that one was part of the supposedly bright digital future and the other allegedly a part of journalism's past. In his first three months on the job, Yahoo CEO Scott Thompson has imposed the largest layoffs in the company's 17-year history, reshaped the board of directors, picked a potentially disruptive fight with a major shareholder and sued Facebook for patent infringement.

After members of Occupy Philly interrupted City Council on Thursday, shouting down attempts to restore order and creating a circus-like atmosphere for their own mock session, the actual elected members got down to a varied and lengthy agenda. The results included a bill to let restaurant servers keep all of their tips, approval of a major construction project to turn gas from a city wastewater plant into electricity, and a debate on the place of advertising in the public sphere.
