IT'S TRASH TIME. Philly Spring Cleanup, the annual anti-litter event that last year mobilized 12,000 volunteers, returns Saturday with more than 500 locations around the city. In its sixth year, the cleanup encourages city residents to take to the streets with brooms and gloves, and cleanse a city with a serious litter issue. Residents collect more than 1 million pounds of trash each year. How it works is the city relies on community organizations to help recruit volunteers and initiate projects.

LA Weight Loss said it is closing 22 locations in the Philadelphia and Harrisburg regions, a move that will cost 55 people their jobs. That includes 16 stores and 45 employees in the Philadphia area. The Toronto company said it would encourage its 1,500 clients to use its online and telephone support program. The company blamed "changing client behavior and a lingering recession" for the decision to close the stores, which officially closed Monday, but will remain accessible this week to customers who meet with their weight-loss consultants to set up a transition plan.

Voorhees Township officials and Main Street developer John B. Canuso Sr. have reached an informal agreement in a dispute over the number of locations for the Main Street liquor license. "I think both sides gained something from it," Mayor James L. Curran said. "This should put the whole liquor-license situation to bed for a while. " Under the terms of the settlement, which is expected to be signed later this month, the township will allow two additional locations for Main Street's Class C consumption license - bringing the total to five, said Frank Thatcher, township solicitor.

One in a continuing series spotlighting real estate markets in the region's communities . On the plus side, Weichert Realtors agent Candy Niedoba says, Pennsauken is South Jersey's best-kept secret: a traditionally blue-collar Camden County community with affordable housing that draws a variety of buyers. The still-recovering economy that has stymied the efforts of low- to moderate-income Americans to buy homes has been a boon to this town across the Delaware River, whose unusual name purportedly means tobacco pouch in Leni-Lenape.

One in a continuing series spotlighting real estate markets in the region's communities.   Realtor Barbara Mastronardo sums it up this way: "Morton has a multiple personality. " One is the Delaware County municipality, the focus of today's real estate market discussion. The other is Morton the zip code, 19070. As Mastronardo, of Weichert Realtors' Media office, explains, it can muddle the issue for those looking for a house in the borough. "The zip code covers Morton, Rutledge, and parts of Springfield and Ridley, which means that it falls into two school districts, Ridley and Springfield," she says.

Leaving behind a lifetime of memories in a church is never easy. But Ukrainian Catholics in the Philadelphia region, like their Roman Catholic brethren, are contending with dwindling numbers of churchgoers in some parishes, prompting mergers as a way to survive. For two Ukrainian Catholic parishes in Delaware County, merging at a new location next year, the decision to uproot themselves was a little easier to accept because it was made internally by parish councils, rather than ordered by the Ukrainian Catholic Archeparchy of Philadelphia, parishioners said.

One in a continuing series spotlighting real estate markets in this region's communities. Location has served Spring City well during much of its history. Situated along the Chester County side of the Schuylkill, with Royersford and Montgomery County on the opposite bank, the borough took advantage of the water to become an industrial powerhouse. At one time or another, until recent years, Spring City produced stoves, flags, paper, glass, and cloth. Calling it home were two movie theaters, an amusement park, and horse racing, as well as trolley lines and rail service to Philadelphia and Reading.

The helium-filled balloon deployed to search for Eric Frein has been returned to Ohio. "Due to the tree canopy and rugged terrain of our search area, the balloon was not as helpful, as everyone hoped it would be," Pennsylvania Trooper Tom Kelly said. The dense woods of the Poconos have hampered every method of searching for Frein, police said. The terrain has made it difficult for officers to search for the alleged killer on foot, with search dogs, helicopters, and now with an unmanned balloon.

When you call 911 from a mobile phone but do not know your exact location, a complex array of technologies is supposed to lend a hand, automatically transmitting a good estimate of your position to a dispatcher. But when a 14-year-old Philadelphia boy was drowning June 29 in Ocean City, N.J., an accurate electronic location showed up on dispatchers' screens for only two of the four calls seeking help, according to police data. The two callers pinpointed by the automated system were unsure where they were.

OF COURSE Tom McCusker believes he has one of the best, if not the best, Mexican eateries this side of the Rio Grande. What he didn't know, however, was that a good number of his Spruce Hill neighbors also agreed. Honest Tom's Taco Shop was named "most favorite site" in that bucolic West Philadelphia neighborhood, according to a just-released retail survey conducted by the Spruce Hill Community Association Business Attraction Committee. "I couldn't be happier about it," McCusker said of the cozy house shop on 44th Street near Spruce.

The first time I saw Camden's Harrison Avenue landfill, it had been closed for years. It was also on fire. I'd been dispatched by an editor to check on a report that the grass atop the toxic tundra of buried trash was ablaze again. And so it was, on a hot afternoon in the late 1970s. Last week, I returned to Harrison Avenue to tour the $68 million Salvation Army Kroc Center, which is on schedule for an Oct. 4 ribbon-cutting ceremony. The project's cost includes $21 million for 34 acres of site remediation work by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.

ARLINGTON, Texas - When Jimmy Rollins crushed a grand slam that spawned a six-run Phillies lead in the second inning Monday, Larry Bowa thought, "It's over. " The bench coach was not alone. Cliff Lee had made 99 straight starts without allowing more than six earned runs. The lead vanished by the third inning. Lee endured five lackluster innings but still earned the win, and Bowa found beauty in that. "All those games I watched when I was at MLB [Network], he was losing 1-0 or 2-1," Bowa said, "so justice was served today.
