Left winger Lawson Crouse and right winger Travis Konecny, best friends since their early years, could be drafted in the opening round of Friday's NHL draft - and there's even an outside chance both will be selected by the Flyers. Getting drafted in the first round "has been a dream of ours," Konecny said at the scouting combine in Buffalo earlier this month. "I hope we're able to experience that together. . . . As much as we're best friends and help each other, we're also competitive and we push each other.

NEW YORK - Ballpark radar guns should soon be reintroduced to Ken "100 Miles" Giles. Giles, who pitched with diminished velocity early in the season, is again nearing triple digits with his fastball. The Phillies' 24-year-old setup man has eclipsed 98 m.p.h. 10 times over the last week, according to the PITCHf/x pitch-tracking system. Entering Tuesday's game, eight of Giles' 98-plus-m.p.h. heaters this season came in the ninth inning of Wednesday's loss to the Baltimore Orioles at Citizens Bank Park.

The Vine Street Expressway (I-676) will be closed late at night next week, as state Department of Transportation crews work on overhead bridges. All lanes will be closed between the I-76 and Broad Street interchanges from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. Sunday to Thursday. Similar overnight closures are expected to continue through early July, PennDot said Friday. Traffic will be detoured onto surface streets. The closures are part of the initial phase of a four-year, $64.8 million project to replace seven structurally deficient bridges over I-676 between 22d and 18th Streets, and to make landscaping and streetscape improvements above the expressway.

The closing of the women's jail in Burlington County this week is sparking concerns that the inmates' relocation to an Atlantic County facility could hamper crucial visits with their families and lawyers. Starting Monday, about 70 female inmates will be moved from the Correction and Work Release Center in Pemberton Township to the Atlantic County Justice Facility in Mays Landing, more than 40 miles away. "This is a substantial distance for people who are being charged in Burlington County," said Kevin Walker, an assistant public defender in Trenton who oversees regional offices.

Welcome, rail commuters, to the land of heat, ice, and rain. That is, to the sidewalks, streets, and alleys outside the Gallery shopping mall on Market East. The mall's three-block central corridor, for decades the weather-beating tunnel for thousands of SEPTA and PATCO passengers, is going to close. Soon. City Council is poised to approve a $325 million Gallery renovation on Thursday, and the developer plans to start demolition in August. "To do the work we want to do, you have to close," said Joseph Coradino, chief executive of the Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust.

ONE THING Michael Vessels can't get out of his mind, a prosecutor told a jury yesterday, is the face of the gunman who stood over him, shot him execution-style, and told him, "You won't talk no more. " Vessels, a minister who witnessed a crime on the North Philly block where he lived, was shot five times on Sept. 26, 2011, so he wouldn't testify in court, Assistant District Attorney Douglas Rhoads said in his closing argument at the trial of Shaheed Williams, 23, and Aki Jones, 39. Williams, nicknamed "Pizza," is accused of shooting Vessels.

When Susan Piliro helped start the Francis House AIDS ministry in Camden two decades ago, it wasn't unusual to lose a dozen clients in a year. "Once we had three funerals in two days. Kenny and Edna were on the same day, and the next day we went to Dennis'," Piliro, 66, recalls. "I had to go to grief counseling myself. " So far in 2015, not a single name has been added to the 100 inscribed on the Francis House memorial at St. Anthony of Padua Church in Cramer Hill. But tears are abundant nevertheless, because the lay ministry - which offers a hearty lunch and even heartier fellowship three days a week - is set to end Tuesday.

Here is an excerpt from Craig LaBan's online chat of June 9, 2015: Craig LaBan: In one of the more unexpected turns of restaurant news, talented chef Ezra Duker left the Mainland Inn just a few weeks after earning three bells in a fairly spectacular display of true modern farm-to-table cooking. Duker told me by phone his ultimate goal was to open his own place. He and his pastry chef (and life partner), Sandy Tran, were heading out to travel in Asia, and then decide where to open their own place - in the Bay area (where they met)

Burlington County will close its aging women's jail Monday and transfer the female inmates to a jail in Mays Landing, Atlantic County, more than 40 miles away, officials confirmed Tuesday. The move is "a cost-saving initiative," projected to save Burlington County about $2 million in annual operating costs, according to Eric Arpert, county spokesman. He said the Corrections and Work Release Center in Pemberton Township houses an average of 70 to 75 female inmates a day. They are scheduled to be moved to Atlantic County's Justice Facility, which has beds for more than 1,000 male and female inmates.
