Philadelphia is a city in a state of churn. Newcomers in their 20s and 30s are filling up rowhouses by the hundreds, transforming whole neighborhoods overnight. Thanks to an influx of immigrants, more languages than ever pepper our streets. Hardly a week goes by without the opening of a new chef-driven restaurant, but good luck getting a last-minute reservation on Saturday evening. When it comes to Philadelphia politics, though, life appears to be on pause. The city's Democratic Party boss, Bob Brady, has held that job since - are you ready, children?

In an effort to shore up its balance sheet so it can attract new capital for expansion, Graduate Hospital has agreed to sell three medical office buildings and a parking facility to a real estate investment group formed by one of its longtime directors, SEC records and interviews show. The deal would bring the hospital $30 million and net it about $15 million after paying off mortgages and other costs. Graduate would then lease back the facilities for about $3.5 million a year, about what it is paying now in carrying costs on the sites, said Harold Cramer, chairman and chief executive of Graduate Health System, the nonprofit parent of Graduate Hospital.

It's not easy being a parent in Philadelphia. Every day, you hear more bad news about funding cuts for the beleaguered schools. But sending the kids to private school would be like taking on a second mortgage. Besides, you're already bracing for a whammy hit when the city's new property-tax system kicks in. You could, of course, pack up and move to the suburbs, like generations of urban pioneers before you. The problem is, you like living in the city: There's the diverse mix of neighbors; the summer block party; the sleek, new cafe; the great playground; the riverfront trail; the museums.

Graduate Hospital in Center City and Zurbrugg Memorial Hospitals in Willingboro and Riverside, N.J., have agreed to merge, forming a 770-bed hospital network with one foot on each side of the Delaware. The linkage will give Zurbrugg Hospitals a tie to the highly-specialized treatment available at Graduate, and help Graduate provide comprehensive care to New Jersey patients who are in HMOs and other insurance plans that have contracts with Graduate. Also, Zurbrugg has departments in pediatrics and obstetrics, which Graduate Hospital lacks.

On the wide spectrum of Mexican options now available in Philadelphia, from the taquerias of South Philly to the high-end nuevo polish of Distrito, Cafe Ynez on Washington Avenue sits somewhere in the middle. The cheery midcentury American decor, with its turquoise accents and boomerang-patterned tables, reflects a love of diners drawn from owner Jill Weber's Midwestern childhood. The brunch-centric menu speaks to the notion of midday comforts, too, especially appealing to the growing neighborhood around the old Graduate Hospital and Point Breeze.

When Mike told colleagues he and his wife were expecting a second child, every woman in the office asked, "How's Melanie feeling?" "Absolutely wonderful," he replied. "Because she's not pregnant. " By that time, most of his workmates knew of the couple's long struggle to make a family. Though Melanie and Mike felt certain they wanted children, they married when he was a second-year fellow in gastroenterology at Graduate Hospital and she was in her second year of residency as an OB/GYN, working up to 100 hours a week.

IF YOU WANT to live more than 100 years, the key word just might be love . That's what Frances Vann Lewis would have told you. When asked to what she attributed her long life, she had one simple answer: "Love everybody. " Not always a simple assignment in a world of increasing stress, you might say, but Frances - called "Nana" by friends and family - would have insisted on it. After all, she did it. Frances Vann Lewis, who worked for a Horn & Hardart restaurant on South Broad Street and for the former Graduate Hospital, a devoted churchwoman and family matriarch, died Friday at age 102. She was living in the Riverside Presbyterian Apartments in Center City, but had lived most of her life in South Philadelphia.

When Richard Gliniak and Alan Taylor bought their Carpenter Street houses more than a decade ago, the now-trendy Graduate Hospital neighborhood was still mired in crime and violence. "This was a major drug-dealing area," Gliniak said recently, sitting in his neatly appointed living room. "First month I was here, I looked out the window and three guys were shooting," added Taylor, who said his wife was so discouraged she wanted to give up and move. Gliniak and Taylor were among about six homeowners who bought near 19th and Carpenter Streets through a program for low- and moderate-income residents.

A story Thursday about a mental-health-treatment bill misidentified its origination and some of its sponsors. It is a federal bill, and the sponsors include U.S. Reps. Tim Murphy (R., Allegheny), Mike Fitzpatrick (R., Bucks), and Patrick Meehan (R., Delaware). The July 4 "Changing Skyline" column on the Graduate Hospital neighborhood gave an incomplete description of ward leader Marcia Wilkof's position in a 2009 zoning dispute. While she initially opposed sidewalk tables at the Sidecar Bar & Grille, she later changed her stance and endorsed the proposal for outdoor dining.
