For Councilwoman Joan Krajewski, June 13 was the day that she and one of her sons, Thomas, 24, would take a break from the city heat and head to the shore to spend some precious time together. The night before, they put a portable television, their clothing and a briefcase in the trunk of her 1986 Chevrolet Monte Carlo so they could get an early start the next morning. Krajewski parked the silver car - her personal vehicle - in front of Mayfair Primitive Methodist Church, at Frankford Avenue and Shelmire Street, a few doors from her home.

Two years ago, Sharonda Cheeves and Jesslyn Williams got into trouble because they were drunk and disorderly, got ejected from a North Philadelphia nightclub, and just wouldn't go home. On Thursday, they couldn't go home. Cheeves, 24, and Williams, 23, were each sentenced to multiyear prison terms for hitting six people - killing one - as they circled Club Motivation four times in their Chevrolet Monte Carlo on Sept. 4, 2010, picking off patrons on the sidewalk. "I know you don't know me, so you don't know that's not who I am," a weeping Williams told Kadella Davis, who as "Mama Breakfast" hosted a weekly dance party for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people at the club.

The way witness Gary Whitlock described it to District Justice John S. Murray 3d last week, his ill-fated venture into the automotive industry's black market began with a quest for a new engine and transmission for his 1986 Chevrolet Monte Carlo. It ended in his arrest. Two Wyndmoor business people who Whitlock and police say helped Whitlock transfer parts from a stolen car to his Monte Carlo also were arrested after Springfield police responded to an anonymous tip Sept. 21. Police said they discovered someone cutting a new car to pieces in one of the bays at Rent-A- Bay at Ivy Hill and Queen Roads.
