The Piston Diner opened in December, and was preparing to start offering dinner this month after serving only breakfast and lunch. But those plans were shattered early Thursday - and 15 people were thrown out of work - when someone who was apparently fortified by alcohol drove a stolen front-end loader into the remodeled eatery on Route 130 in Westville. Owner Jason Kramer said he did not know if he would be able to reopen until a structural engineer inspects the damage. If he gets the go-ahead, he plans to reopen in less than a month.

They are ever so stealthy, growing silently through geological time from small fractures in rock into mammoth cavities that could gobble a sport-utility vehicle in a single gulp. They are sinkholes, and one of them lurked hidden in the Plaza at King of Prussia parking lot before capturing an unsuspecting snowplow operator early on Monday. The sinkhole, estimated at 20 feet wide and 10 to 15 feet deep, developed in the west parking lot outside Lord & Taylor about 6 a.m. Monday as the contractor was plowing atop it, said Edward J. Ciano, assistant general manager of the Plaza.

A tractor-trailer hauling garbage flipped on its side at the Bensalem entrance to Pennsylvania Turnpike this morning and spilled its cargo onto the highway's westbound lanes. There are no reports of serious injuries in the 6 a.m. crash. One lane of traffic was squeezing by on the entrance from Route 1. Traffic on the westbound lanes was halted before a time before reopening about 7:15 a.m. after a front end loader moved the spilled garbage out of the way. Turnpike officials advised motorists to expect delays through the morning rush hour.

IF YOU ever hear me say I work for fun, that's a lie. I work because lazy husbands come home to Dear John letters and empty houses. The husband's clothing is usually still there when the family leaves. It's just outside on the sidewalk, and it's been doused with gasoline. I work to avoid that fate, and while I like fun as much as the next guy, there's a limit to what I'll do for enjoyment, because frankly, I don't have time for foolishness. In fact, most of the people I know don't have time for it either.

For eight years, residents in the 2100 block of Fitzwater Street cultivated an award-winning community garden on three adjacent vacant lots. A stone-lined path led from the gated front entrance to a sitting area with teak benches surrounding a raised planting bed. The garden, nestled between looming three-story rowhouses, also contained trees, shrubs, flowers and rosebushes. On Wednesday morning, a front-end loader plowed through the center of the garden to make way for a three-story luxury house - after a standoff between the chair of the garden committee, Kathleen Garvin, and the front-end loader that had to be resolved by the police.
