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.

Go-go bars and hot-sheet motels seemed to disappear overnight as Admiral Wilson Boulevard's $30 million transformation moved full speed ahead in 2000. But 15 years after then-Gov. Christie Whitman sought to improve the boulevard's aesthetics in advance of the Republican National Convention in Philadelphia, the pretty park that replaced the ugly south-side strip is still not open to the public. The 30-acre stretch along the Cooper River hugs the eastbound Admiral Wilson from just west of Baird Boulevard in Camden to the Pub restaurant in Pennsauken.

SEA ISLE CITY, N.J. - As the school year comes to an end and the Jersey Shore's summer season begins, beachgoers traveling between Sea Isle City and Avalon won't be able to use the Townsends Inlet Bridge for at least 10 more days. With the bridge under repair, drivers must take the Garden State Parkway - which can add about 10 miles each way - to get back and forth from the neighboring Shore towns. Construction on the bridge - which began in January - was expected to be finished by Memorial Day. But Mugrose Construction Inc. now hopes to have the bridge open by June 19, said Cape May County engineer Dale Foster.

With a budget deadline looming, Philadelphia City Council is close to crafting its alternative to Mayor Nutter's proposed property-tax hike to fund the city's public schools. In closed-door meetings this week, Council considered four potential revenue streams - building blocks that would fall at least $20 million short of the $103 million the School District has asked for, according to sources familiar with the discussions. On the table are a sale of city tax liens; an increase in the city's use-and-occupancy tax on businesses; a hike to the parking tax; and a real estate tax increase far more modest than the 9.34 percent proposed by Nutter.

After emptying the salt and pepper shakers, Anna Diamantis walked to each plum-colored booth in the main room of the Freeway Diner in Deptford on Tuesday and unloaded the sugar jars. A son-in-law had claimed the custom silver wall clock, whose numbers are replaced with the eatery's name. Other area restaurants had agreed to buy the surplus food on hand. Longtime customer Lily Corbett, a retired bank manager, stopped in to see the restaurant owners and left with crab cakes for her husband, Charlie.

Il Cantuccio , which has held the corner of Third Street and Fairmount Avenue in Northern Liberties since 1999, is out of business. The BYOB was the second restaurant owned by the cantankerous but lovable chef Giuseppe Rosselli of La Locanda del Ghiottone. Rosselli died suddenly in 2000 of a heart attack, and his widow ran it until February 2014, when she sold it. Yet another White Dog University City-bred White Dog Cafe , which branched out to Wayne in 2010, now has a third location, in Haverford Square (379 Lancaster Ave., 610-896-4556)

The troubled Truebright Science Academy Charter School in Olney will close at the end of the academic year next month - unless it obtains a stay from the court to remain open. A Commonwealth Court three-judge panel on Friday affirmed a state Charter Appeals Board decision that said the School Reform Commission had ample grounds to close Truebright for poor academic performance. The judges said that Truebright had promised that its students would "realize high academic rank" and would score proficient or higher on the state's standardized math and reading tests.
