Space & Co. agent Kent Reichert checks out most of the properties that go on the market in Mount Airy, and the house at 209 Pelham Rd. started out as just another on his list. These days, however, 209 Pelham is right at the top of it. Acting as buyer's agent for his brother, Christopher, and two other investors, Reichert put in an offer of $325,000 for the 4,700-square-foot, eight-bedroom house in December, and it was accepted. "It was in solid condition, but it just didn't show that well," Reichert said, standing in the front yard as roofers worked above him, mature shade trees shielding them from a blazing sun in early July.

I ENVY FRANCIS Fabey, Charles Brennan and Mitchell J. Yanak. I wish I were as vital to my organization as they are, apparently, to the city of Philadelphia. Their talents seem to be unique. All three were former city workers, all signed up for the Deferred Retirement Option Program, the notorious DROP, all received a pot o' cash after retirement - and all have been rehired by the city. Slithering through a worm hole created by elected officials, they feathered their own nests with DROP and now they are back, pulling down six-figure salaries.

Two years ago, the City of Chicago decided to create a website, tracking the live locations of its snowplows as they moved through the city after storms. "We just wanted to counter this idea that snowplows go to the aldermen's streets first, or they're just hanging out at McDonald's," said Chicago's chief technology officer, John Tolva. The website broke all of their tracking records "instantly," Tolva recalled Thursday at the Mayors' Innovation Summit at the Westin Hotel on South 17th Street.
