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.

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.

An Atlantic City pastor was searching for a miracle so he could relocate his small church to a safer home. A retired Jewish businessman from Cherry Hill was looking to sell a parcel of land valued at $75,000 to $125,000. Together, they settled on a price: $0. It may have been the holiday spirit, or a blessing. Either way, prayers were answered for the City of Hope Worship Outreach Center and Pastor Kenneth Applewhite. "It was a feel-good type of thing. I wanted to do it, and I did it," James Horowitz, 82, said of his decision to donate the vacant land on the Black Horse Pike in Egg Harbor Township, N.J., so the congregation could build a new church.

The trial has not started yet, but lawyers are already baring their fangs in the fight between Sen. Robert Menendez and the federal prosecutors accusing him of accepting bribes. In court filings debating where to hold the New Jersey Democrat's trial, prosecutors accuse Menendez of "seeking special treatment" by asking to move the case from Newark to Washington and trying to avoid his own constituents. "Put simply," federal prosecutors wrote, "the Department of Justice is more confident than Senator Menendez that a New Jersey jury will objectively consider the evidence.
