Jim Stuhlman walked his dog down Woodcrest Avenue almost every night. His neighbors got to know him - some of them walked their own dogs with him. He picked up trash in the neighborhood park and planted grass. He made a point of stopping to say hello. Stuhlman's block, 6400, was quiet, his neighbors say - the worst crime they could remember recently was a few car break-ins. So when a gunshot rang out there around 8:30 Thursday night - as the 51-year-old was walking his dog - many residents didn't realize what they had heard.

FOR KIM JONES, life was about caring for others. The mother spent the last several years working at an organization that helps abused and neglected children. But with the pull of a trigger yesterday morning - a single bullet fired into the dedicated child-advocacy worker's head as she went off to work - that was all gone. Police said Jones, 56, left her North Philadelphia home about 9 a.m. and walked less than a block to a bus stop at 12th and Jefferson streets, just as she had each day for several years on her way to her job at Center City-based Turning Points for Children.
