They've got a City Centre, we've got a Center City, and they think theirs could learn a thing or two from ours. Does this mean . . . could it be . . . Philadelphia's doing something right? The answer may surprise the naysayers who have written off Center City as a 3-D kind of place - dirty, dangerous and dilapidated. It may disappoint the career city-bashers who couldn't find a kind word to say about the place if you abolished panhandling and parking tickets. And it will surely shock those who haven't been downtown for the last eight months, which is how long the Center City District's sidewalk-cleaners and good-will ambassadors have been on the street.

The Manchester House nursing home got a slight reprieve last week, winning permission to remain open until a hearing is held on its license this fall. The Media nursing home, under fire by the state since June, has made enough improvements so that "there is no immediate threat to the health and safety of residents," according to a letter sent by the Department of Health last week to Walter Strine, a part-owner of the Manchester. But the Manchester still is barred from receiving Medicaid payments through the state, leaving it without a major source of income, according to state health officials.

Right Management Consultants Inc. will spend $8 million in cash to acquire former rival Manchester Inc. from the MPS Group, a Jacksonville, Fla., staffing company. Yesterday's news came less than a week after the Philadelphia-based global career transition, outplacement and organizational consulting firm announced that it would be acquired in a $488 million stock swap by temporary-staffing giant Manpower Inc., which is based in Milwaukee. That deal is expected to close early next year.

Sean McDonnell texted Chip Kelly a congratulatory message on Wednesday. "How's your day going?" Kelly responded to McDonnell, the New Hampshire coach and Kelly's best friend. They texted back and forth about chicken cheesesteaks they ate when they met with the Penn coaches one time, back when Kelly was an assistant to McDonnell at New Hampshire. There are "thousands" of other stories McDonnell can share about times when the friends are relaxing, away from the field where they are just two alums from New Hampshire enjoying each other's company.

Consolation is what it is, but it probably gets no better than this: Rowan College, of Glassboro, N.J., hammered Trinity, of Hartford, Conn., 105-72, Saturday afternoon at Buffalo (N.Y.) State for third place in the NCAA Division III Basketball Championship Tournament. That matched the Profs' showing in the 1993 Final Four. "You always hear the question, 'Should there be consolation games?' " said Joe Cassidy, the first assistant for Rowan coach John Giannini. "When you leave on a winning note, you have a good feeling instead of being totally bummed out. " Senior guard Charles Grasty, an all-tournament selection out of Abington High, led the Profs (27-4)

Johnny, the nocturnal drifter of Naked, wanders through London's shabby rowhouse blocks like a New Testament prophet warning of the apocalypse, his lightning tongue electrifying those cockneys he does not merely shock. Johnny's exodus from his native Manchester and his food- and sleep-deprived nights in London streets and flats is the subject of Mike Leigh's furious film, one that plunges this director of whimsical comedies (Life is Sweet, High Hopes) into startlingly unfamiliar depths.

From the frigid British Columbia logging town where his 19th-century period film The Claim was shooting, the inspiration to make a movie about the music scene in Manchester, England, struck Michael Winterbottom as more than a little appealing. "It just seemed really attractive to do something that was like going back home," the 41-year-old Brit said. "And to do something in clubs, so we'd be inside, warm. " The result is 24 Hour Party People, opening Friday at the Ritz Five and Ritz Sixteen/NJ, an exhilarating, funny and stylized production that takes place between 1976 and 1992, when gritty, postindustrial Manchester developed a cutting-edge music scene that bled from punk into the emerging rave culture.

Brad Richardson had a goal and two assists and the Lake Erie Monsters beat the Phantoms, 5-1, in an AHL game last night at the Wachovia Spectrum. Chris Stewart scored the game-winner. He got his 11th goal of the season less than three minutes into the second period. The Phantoms' goal came in the first period. Darren Reid, playing in his first game back from injury, took the puck near the end wall and fired a shot on net that was tipped straight up in the air. Pete Zingoni, coming in from the right side, batted it back toward goaltender Tyler Weiman, and Stefan Ruzicka scored on a rebound in the crease tie to the score, 1-1. The game was Lake Erie's first trip to the Wachovia Spectrum.
