More than a decade ago, Kirby Bros. stopped blending corn, oats, and bran and topping the concoction with molasses to satisfy the cravings of horses that had long been part of the South Jersey landscape. The 100-pound bag of horse feed, priced at $13.60, was the biggest seller, said Chuck Kirby, who inherited the 140-year-old family business and mill in Medford and operated it with his wife, Jan, and their son, Chaz. As farms started to disappear, Chuck Kirby said, it made more sense to import livestock feed from Pennsylvania for their customers and to introduce a new line of food for pets, birds, and wildlife as suburbanites moved into the area.

With the final paperwork for the Gallery's massive renovation in place, the closing date for the mall's east end is now firm, officials said. Commuters will lose their indoor shortcut by the close of business Jan. 1, said Kevin Feeley, spokesman for the Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust. PREIT had previously said the empty east corridor, which is used extensively by rail travelers, would close Oct. 2. Procedural delays in the complicated deal caused the extension, but Feeley said the Jan. 1 date was certain.

NEWARK, N.J. A New Jersey nonprofit that was sued for offering to turn gays to heterosexuals has been ordered to close down. A judge's ruling Friday granted a permanent injunction against Jews Offering New Alternatives for Healing, known as JONAH. A Hudson County jury in June awarded damages to several men who had sued JONAH, claiming it engaged in fraud and made claims it couldn't back up. An attorney for the men Friday said the decision sends a message to providers of so-called gay conversion therapy that the practice is fraudulent.

The Flyers have recently discovered a way to win close games. "I think it is just trusting each other out there and being more confident," center Sean Couturier said. "We are getting more comfortable in those games. We aren't getting as frustrated as maybe we used to. When we're composed and in control of ourselves, we play better. " Excluding empty-netters that made the final margin a two-goal difference, the Flyers are 6-2 in one-goal games since Nov. 27. Overall, they will take a 7-2-1 run into Saturday night's game in Columbus, a team that handed them a 4-1 loss Dec. 5. "Lately, we are trusting each other, playing the system the right way and we're getting good results," said Couturier, whose surging team (14-12-6)

Boyds co-owner Jeff Glass took one look at the first and second floors after the fire at the Center City clothier Nov. 30 and thought the damage was minimal. All of the pricey inventory - mostly designer suits for men, and dresses and coats for women - was intact. Other than some water damage to the women's area on the third level, it looked as if the venerable store at 1818 Chestnut St. had gotten off easy. But Glass then took the elevator to the fourth floor, and when the doors opened, he could smell the fire damage that destroyed the big and tall section and customer pickup area, also known as will call.

Without a state budget, the Philadelphia School District could cancel classes for its 130,000 students as of Jan. 29, Superintendent William R. Hite Jr. says. "After that date," Hite wrote in a letter to staff this week, "our ability to keep schools open, issue paychecks, and pay bills is uncertain. The prospect of running out of operating funds is dire. " The School Reform Commission recently took out a short-term loan of $250 million to keep the lights on temporarily, but with struggling districts and state agencies around Pennsylvania in similar binds, it's not clear whether the system would be able to borrow more money if the budget impasse continues.
