Take the Mummers Parade out of South Philadelphia? Albert Lancellotti is having none of it. "You don't know what it is like to be a full-blooded South Philly Italian with this in your blood," said the 55-year-old lifelong neighborhood resident and president of the Jesters New Year's Brigade. "For them to move the parade is no big deal, because their families ain't from here. To us, it is all about our family. " Brigade member Matt Ciotto, 31, concurred: "Leaving out the neighborhood where it started from?

Lawyers for the NCAA, Gov. Corbett, and other state officials think they can settle within the next month a lawsuit over the $60 million in penalties Penn State is paying for its mishandling of the Jerry Sandusky child sexual- abuse scandal. In a joint motion filed Wednesday in federal court in Harrisburg, the sides said another month would give them a "meaningful opportunity" to resolve the lawsuit. However, nine members of the university's board of trustees have recommended a meeting Aug. 22 to decide on an official negotiating position for Penn State in the matter.

After using his veto pen to attack employee perks and demanding reform at the Delaware River Port Authority during his first term, Gov. Christie for the first time has the power to reshape the board that oversees the bistate agency. But the Republican governor has made no move to name his own representatives to the board of the agency - which has been under federal investigation for politically connected economic-development spending - since the terms of the eight New Jersey commissioners ended July 1. The commissioners were nominated or renominated to fill five-year terms by former Democratic Gov. Jon Corzine.

A New Jersey appeals court has upheld Gov. Christie's appointment of a Hispanic civil rights activist to the Rutgers University board of governors, ruling against the state's top elected Democrat. Martín Perez's December 2012 appointment to Rutgers' main governing body, which took effect last July, "was a proper exercise" of Christie's authority, three judges ruled Tuesday. Senate President Stephen Sweeney (D., Gloucester) had sought to block Perez's appointment. He said Tuesday he would accept the decision, though he did not agree with it. "I'm glad it's over and so I will continue serving my state and my university," Perez, 65, said by phone Tuesday.

The West Chester Area school board decided Monday how it will redraw its voting boundaries into regions, marking the latest step in the district's move away from the at-large system it has used since its consolidation in 1966. The board voted, 6-2, to approve the new map, which divides the 75-square-mile district into three regions of about 36,000 residents each. It keeps West Chester Borough in one region, a previous point of contention. Approval of the map means the new voting system could be in place in time for next year's primary elections in the district, which has almost 12,000 students.

New Jersey Senate President Stephen Sweeney said Wednesday that he envisioned creating a nonprofit board composed of top business leaders that would reinvest gaming revenue from potential casinos in North Jersey into Atlantic City. Faced with the prospect of four Atlantic City casinos closing this year, Sweeney recently signaled an openness to casino expansion in North Jersey, possibly as soon as November 2015. Sweeney's idea is one of several being contemplated as the Shore city grapples with declining gaming revenue and worker layoffs.

HARRISBURG - The state Ethics Commission has launched a formal investigation into allegations that four Philadelphia legislators were captured on tape accepting money during an undercover sting investigation. The Ethics Commission revealed the investigation in a letter sent late last week to Gene Stilp, a Harrisburg activist. Stilp filed a complaint March 18 against the four Democratic lawmakers, two days after The Inquirer disclosed the existence of the long-running sting and that state Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane had shut it down.
