Even with a limit of 17 feet and other signs held to storefront identification, passers-by are going to know the shops are there. And that's all the businessmen asked. Acting on their request, the members of the city's Zoning Board of Adjustment voted unanimously last week to approve the signs for a business center at the edge of Frankford. They conditioned the vote on an agreement that the main, 5-foot-by-10-foot free-standing sign on Kensington Avenue be topped off at no more than 17 feet.

Debra DiLorenzo, the head of the Southern New Jersey Chamber of Commerce, gave the newly opened Enterprise Center rave reviews after attending a business conference there that she helped organize. In October, about two months after Burlington County College opened the center at its Mount Laurel campus as a venue for corporate conferences and business education, the chamber booked the facility for a management seminar. "I had visited the facility several times while it was under construction, but I really wasn't prepared for what I saw when I walked into the finished building," DiLorenzo said.

ISSUE | ENERGY Solar, not tankers Philadelphia should be exceedingly proud that it has created a sustainable business center at the former Navy Yard. The $129 million U.S. Department of Energy Innovation Hub hosts numerous energy-efficient buildings and a 35-megawatt unregulated electric grid with leading smart-grid research. Let's hope that Philadelphia's future lies with safe, sustainable energy rather than explosive tanker cars and leaking pipelines that could endanger the city.

One woman was sitting in a window seat at La Colombe, lost in a discussion about a Macy's sale, when someone snatched her wallet from her purse. Alyssa Abbott had just finished lunch at a Chestnut Street cafe when she noticed how light her tote bag felt. And Temple University student Rachael Young was packing up her laptop at Starbucks when she realized her wallet was gone. Pickpockets. Or, more precisely, the work of what police now call "sneak thieves. " If the best friend of the coffeehouse thief is distraction, then the holiday season, with its crowded shops of hurried shoppers, offers the pickpocket prime opportunities.

When floods of data - linking patients to doctors, gadgets, images, and medicines - used to surge through two aging computer centers near Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals' Walnut Street headquarters, senior director Paul S. O'Connor Sr. worried his network could be "one waterpipe-break away" from paralysis. That's why, over the last two years, Jefferson contracted two off-campus computer-server operators to link its network to Verizon, Comcast, and a half-dozen specialty telecom carriers.

Taxing for growth must be goal Having been in business in Philadelphia for more than 50 years, I've watched the city's slow decline from a vibrant business center to one that has driven away most large firms and made it extremely challenging for small companies to survive or grow. This didn't have to occur, since Philadelphia has more to offer than almost any other city with which it competes: great history, a walkable downtown, a fabulous array of restaurants and shops, world-class cultural institutions, and much more.

In the eight years that Therese Flaherty has been running the Wharton Small Business Development Center , she's seen boom and bust. The center's client base has remained pretty consistent at about 600 businesses annually, but their questions and challenges have changed since the brutal recession. Money, of course, is on the minds of nearly every businessperson, Flaherty said. When they hear that the SBDC has no money to lend to them, that ends the conversation for some of them.

The son of murdered businessman Robert Chae told a rapt courtroom audience yesterday in Montgomery Township that he was shaken awake on the morning of Jan. 9 by two men, one of whom pistol-whipped him. Blank-faced and bespectacled, Richard Chae, 29, told how the pair had "dragged" him from his bedroom into the basement of the Chae family home in Montgomeryville, where they and a third man bound him with duct tape. The men wanted money from a safe; the family acquiesced, but it didn't appear to matter, the son testified.
