If the documents filed in recent weeks are any indication, a truce is not likely Monday when one of the region's more prolific developers, J. Brian O'Neill, and Citizens Bank of Pennsylvania face off in Philadelphia Common Pleas Court. Judge Albert W. Sheppard Jr. is scheduled to hear arguments on a motion by Citizens Bank to have O'Neill's stunning lawsuit - filled with allegations of fraud and other abuses by the bank - thrown out. In January, O'Neill sued the bank for $8 billion, alleging broken financial promises by Citizens that he says have "destroyed" his much-anticipated - and largely incomplete - Uptown Worthington mixed-use development in Malvern.

ON SEPT. 13, Philadelphia City Council unanimously passed a resolution that I sponsored calling on the Philadelphia Community Reinvestment Commission to establish reinvestment agreements with banks entering the Philadelphia market. The resolution cited that reinvestment commission member Mellon Bank had sold its branches to Citizens Bank. Mellon's appointment to the commission was due to its market share of small business lending in low -income communities. Recently released data from the City Controller's Office shows that loans for small business in low-income communities are decreasing.

Westward ho! That could be the latest rallying cry for housing in Philadelphia thanks to Citizens Bank's new program in and around University City. The news couldn't be more welcome. Not only will the effort build upon the University of Pennsylvania's success in redeveloping that area, it could encourage other lenders to invest in neighborhoods with the potential to go from high-risk to highly desirable. Citizens will make available $28.5 million in grants and low-interest loans for small businesses, and for residents and community groups to buy properties and do renovations.

WHAT a difference going to a Phillies game compared to an Eagles game in the upper level. I've been an Eagles season ticketholder for 35 years and also attend my fair share of Phillies games. The Phils' employees are all helpful and polite. I can't say that about most Eagles employees. The female usher at our section (420) at a recent Phillies game even wiped off our seat before we sat down. They reversed the escalator toward the end of the game so people didn't have to walk the ramps the whole way down - unlike the Eagles, who shut the escalators down and guard them so you're forced to walk down the neverending shaky ramps.

Citizens Bank of Pennsylvania said yesterday that it would hire more than 300 workers by the end of June for its Philadelphia-area operations. The Scottish-owned bank bought Mellon Bank's branches last year. More than half the added workers will be based at Citizens' new data center above Strawbridge's on Market Street; most of the rest will work as branch tellers. Mayor Street praised the "immediate economic shot in the arm" that the hiring would produce, and said it showed the bank's "long-term commitment to growth" in the city.

One of the biggest challenges teachers face is keeping their students engaged in the learning process. Start off strong, and the chances for a good school year increase radically. But across the Delaware Valley, some students are at a disadvantage because they lack something pretty basic - school supplies. Yet it all makes sense. A child who begins or returns to school this fall lacking the physical tools needed to succeed - such as new paper, pencils, and a backpack - is more likely to struggle.

In times of trouble, you could find yourself in far more unpleasant places than South Philadelphia on a breezy summer evening listening to Paul McCartney sing Beatles songs. Which is what a privileged-to-be-there sold-out Citizens Bank Park crowd got to do Tuesday evening, finding refuge from the 24-hour bad-news cycle with the master of the cheerily melodic pop song just three nights after Billy Joel had filled the Phillies-stadium-turned-senior-citizen-rocker showplace, which will also host Bruce Springsteen later this summer.

SAN FRANCISCO - These days, the chatter about Citizens Bank Park as a bandbox is muted because the home team cannot hit for power. The ballpark gained its reputation more than a decade ago when robust Phillies lineups dumped high flies into flower beds. Pitchers from opposing teams complained; the effect became exaggerated. But earlier this month, when potent Toronto and Arizona lineups came to Philadelphia and bashed 17 homers in six games, it served as a reminder of how Citizens Bank Park has become such a disadvantage for the home team.

Home of the Phillies will become home of the Dragons on Saturday. For the first time in about two decades, Drexel University will hold a universitywide commencement ceremony, and its venue will be Citizens Bank Park. It's also a first for the park; the Phillies home field has never been used for a university graduation before. Instead of seeing Ryan Howard hit a home run, graduates and their families will get advice from commencement speaker Donna Shalala, former U.S. secretary of health and human services.

NASHVILLE - Tyler Goeddel, a former-first-round pick by Tampa Bay, appears to be the player the Phillies will target with the No. 1 pick in Thursday morning's Rule 5 Draft.
