TRENTON A housing advocacy group is set to ask a state appellate court Wednesday to direct a special authority to produce new rules governing affordable housing, after Gov. Christie's administration failed to meet a Supreme Court-ordered deadline to complete the task. Administration officials last week requested an extension from the Supreme Court, which in September ordered the Council on Affordable Housing (COAH) to rewrite rules for determining how many homes municipalities must provide for lower-income residents.

LOGAN TWP. An environmental advocacy group contends that a soil-recycling company's Logan Township facility is jeopardizing public health by improperly processing its materials. The Delaware Riverkeeper Network alleges that Soil Safe has failed to correct the purported offenses despite an October notice of intent to sue by the organization, according to the group's complaint, filed in U.S. District Court on Monday. Soil Safe, which recycles petroleum-contaminated soil, provides remediated soil to the nearby equestrian facility run by the Gloucester County Improvement Authority known as DREAM Park.

George E. Ehrlich, 85, of Philadelphia, an internationally renowned rheumatologist and adviser to the World Health Organization, died Friday, Feb. 28, of complications from Alzheimer's disease at Arden Courts in King of Prussia. Dr. Ehrlich made his mark in Philadelphia as the director of rheumatology and chief of the Arthritis Center at Einstein Medical Center and Moss Rehabilitation Hospital from 1964 to 1980. But his influence went further. An international authority on rehabilitative management of rheumatic conditions, Dr. Ehrlich was trained in the post-World War II era, when the field of rheumatology was focused on discovering the cause of damage to the joints.

SAINT JOSEPH'S has played its way into the NCAA Tournament. If the selections had been yesterday, the Hawks would have been well into the field, perhaps as a 10 or 11 seed. After winning 83-74 at St. Bonaventure Saturday, its 17th win in 20 games, SJU (21-7, 11-3 Atlantic 10) also was very close to clinching a bye to the A-10 Tournament quarterfinals. Given that the at-large field is constantly evolving, SJU could get passed and be back out of the field, but the Hawks are in a great spot as the regular season enters its final week.

WHEN Edwin Huntingdon Parker's Philadelphia apartment was robbed, he shrugged and said, "They probably needed it more than me. " That sounded like Parker. He was generous and forgiving almost to a fault. "He was honest even when it was to his detriment," said longtime friend Robert Kahn, AIDS activist and supervisor in the city's Anti-Bias Agency. "He was one of the most honest, positive and generous people I have ever known. " Edwin Huntingdon Parker, well-known in the theater world as a costume designer who worked with local theater and opera companies and toured the world with the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, died Feb. 9 of metastatic lung cancer.

In Port Richmond, residents are exposed to air pollution from oceangoing vessels, factories, and heavy traffic along I-95. In Overbrook, toxic chemicals in area waterways and water quality overall are issues. Many in Philadelphia's Hispanic neighborhoods don't realize the danger of lead contamination from older, deteriorating buildings. All three are the target of environmental-justice funding from the U.S. Department of Environmental Protection, whose deputy administrator, Bob Perciasepe, traveled to Philadelphia on Wednesday to highlight the grants.

Patients with eczema tend to start itching before they see a rash, rather than the other way around, leading some to call it "the itch that rashes. " So what is this invisible agent that causes the itch? Herbert B. Allen has been scratching his head over that one for years, but recently the Drexel University dermatologist achieved a measure of intellectual relief. He and a team of colleagues at Drexel's College of Medicine report that the culprit is a slime-like substance called biofilm, produced by Staphylococcus bacteria on the skin.

Quatuor Ebene had its share of winter-travel snafus traveling from Paris to its Philadelphia Chamber Music Society concert on Wednesday - encountering a connecting flight with no pilot to fly the plane. But no special sympathy was needed to embrace the kind of music-making exemplified by the group's Kimmel Center concert. This young French group has long exhibited an enterprising intelligence and personality that delivers a detailed, interior view of the music. In contrast to the Promethean Marlboro manner of the 1970s, Quatour Ebene has a reined-in sound envelope that doesn't translate into emotional reserve or suaveness but creates a cleaner landscape for the music's expressive events, more than groups who "play out" emphatically.
