Would you arrive at a radio station naked under a fur coat to have lunch with your favorite performer? Nineteen-year-old Nijla Diggs did. Diggs dared to flash several Power 99 employees (mainly men) just to meet R&B singing star Maxwell. Ten other lucky women also had the opportunity to meet Maxwell, but they did not have to strip. They were winners of a contest that selected the "hardest worker of the day. " Maxwell arrived in a classy black stretch limo and cruised the radio station wearing yellow-tinted sunglasses, a faded head wrap and loose-fitting black pants.

Maxwell is "the grand set-upper," as the 36-year-old soul man put it Friday night during his sold-out concert at the Event Center at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. "You don't have to buy diamonds or flowers," the cool, calm, collected customer told the decidedly outnumbered guys before delicately offering Al Green's "Simply Beautiful" to the ladies. The sweetly seductive bedroom singer was just looking for a little well-deserved credit for serving up a date-night stimulus in a time of economic hardship: "If it wasn't for me, you wouldn't be getting that piece of booty you're getting right now. " Backed by a skilled 10-piece band featuring guitarist Melvin "Wah-Wah Watson" Ragin before a crowd more "grown and sexy" (in the words of opener Chrisette Michele)

When Vernon Maxwell left the CoreStates Spectrum before the conclusion of the 76ers' loss to the Chicago Bulls on Saturday, hopefully he understood he would eventually have to reach for his checkbook. Sixers coach and general manager John Lucas confirmed that Maxwell had been "severely fined" for his actions. The amount of the fine was not revealed. Maxwell played 14 minutes as a backup guard in the game and shot 1-for-8 from the floor, 0-for-5 from three-point distance.

Muth said he believes Maxwell will meet the requirements for the program.

A 1984 North Philadelphia football league yearbook helped an accused killer beat a 1995 murder rap yesterday. It was used by defense lawyer Brian J. McMonagle to attack the credibility of a key prosecution witness. After John Maxwell testified that he saw Jimmy Young, 21, shoot and kill Carl W. Harrison Jr., 32, at Woodlawn and Boyer streets, on Dec. 3, 1995, McMonagle accused him of being a liar. "Isn't it a fact that you are lying about your own name?" asked McMonagle.

For Robert J. Maxwell, this is war. The former international banker spends his nights bartending, his days dogged by anxiety. He thinks that his phone is being tapped, that his family is being photographed, that he was tailed last month by a man in a white Chevrolet Beretta. "I feel as though I'm battling the entire federal government at this point," said Maxwell, 44, of Shrewsbury, Pa. His adversaries, he says, are the Baltimore-based First National Bank of Maryland, the CIA, the FBI and the Department of Justice.

Downingtown's 28-year-old mayor was accepted Tuesday into a prison-alternative program for a drunken-driving offense. Chester County First Assistant District Attorney Patrick Carmody said Joshua A. Maxwell, a first-time, nonviolent offender, easily qualified for the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition program. Under ARD, a state program whose guidelines vary from county to county, participants are promised a clean slate if they complete requirements such as community service and treatment programs.

Part two of three parts. Capt. Kenny Schwartz was convinced that William J. Gray was "the Jogging Rapist. " This is the guy, this is the guy. How do we hang him? He assigned a crew of cops to Gray. "We woke him up in the morning, and we put him to bed at night, watching, watching. He knew we were there. "And he was never gonna rape again. " Police began showing his victims a Polaroid of Gray that he said had been taken illegally by Northeast detectives. A 14-year-old girl who had been assaulted on Erdrick Street on May 18 said Gray was the man. On Dec. 10, Gray was arrested in connection with her attack, charged with attempted rape, robbery, assault, unlawful restraint, and indecent assault.

When Dallas Police Chief David Brown stepped to the lectern last week to memorialize five officers slain by sniper fire, he chose to lighten the somber mood by first talking about his failures at teenage romance, and his love for 1970s rhythm and blues. Because he was so inept as a conversation starter, Brown recalled, he would break the ice with a girl he liked by reading aloud lyrics to songs by favorite soul singers. That meant regaling them with a little Al Green, or Isley Brothers, or Philadelphia's own 1970s master of the boudoir, Teddy Pendergrass.

Nice As F*#k (Love's Way ***) This week's three-woman supergroup - on the heels of Neko Case, k.d. lang, and Laura Veirs' self-titled album - is Nice As F*#k , the indie trio fronted by Jenny Lewis, with Erika Forster of Au Revoir Simone and Tennessee Thomas of The Like. The band that debuted at a Bernie Sanders campaign rally has surprise-released this nine-song, self-titled debut, complete with an amusingly grandiose bio by Father John Misty. Under the byline "God's favorite evolved male music journalist," he calls the trio "objectively the best all-female band in the last 25 years (like that should even matter, you know, do you describe RADIOHEAD as an 'ALL OPPRESSOR BAND NO YOU DON'T')

It all began, really, with the soft cornerback's tender shoulder. The Eagles greeted the dawn of the NFL's free-agency period Wednesday with the same shop-till-you-drop enthusiasm that they've often displayed in recent years - once they held a little yard sale themselves, that is. They signed three players - safety Rodney McLeod, guard Brandon Brooks, and linebacker Nigel Bradham - who might just be entering the primes of their careers. They allocated $12 million in guaranteed money for quarterback Chase Daniel, whose two starts and 77 passes worth of NFC action have apparently been enough to earn the implicit trust of the Eagles' new head coach, Doug Pederson.

THE GREAT PART about the National Football League is that there never is a shortage of village idiots. The NFL is the most successful sports league on the face of the earth. It generates nearly $14 billion a year in revenue. Yet, you don't have to look very hard to find someone dumber than you. After usurping personnel power from Howie Roseman following the 2014 season, Chip Kelly went all Monty Hall on us (Google him, kids) and engineered a bunch of questionable trades and spent a Brink's truck full of Jeff Lurie's money on a bunch of free agents he thought would help take the Eagles from good to great.

A YEAR AGO, the Eagles signed a shutdown corner who, it turned out, couldn't shut anyone down, and they traded their all-time leading rusher for a difference-making linebacker who ended up not making a difference. Then they signed the reigning NFL rushing leader, and that didn't work out very well, either. But it seems that when Howie Roseman moved his office back to the football operations area at NovaCare a few months ago, one of the tools Roseman brought back with him was a giant eraser.

One year after the Eagles acquired DeMarco Murray, Byron Maxwell, and Kiko Alonso as part of a high-profile offseason overhaul, the team agreed to trade them all on the same day. Murray will be dealt to the Tennessee Titans, his agency confirmed. Maxwell and Alonso will be sent to the Miami Dolphins for draft picks, according to league sources. The specific return on either trade was not known. The deals were reached on Monday, but they will not be made official until the new league year begins on Wednesday.

THE TIMING of Monday's trade of Byron Maxwell was remarkably fortuitous if you happened to be a sports writer who already had spent much of his day searching for an anecdote to lead into a column about the fool's gold that is NFL free agency. (Clears throat). And so it was that the Byron Maxwell era was relegated to the same historical waste bucket as virtually every cornerback era since Sheldon Brown, Lito Sheppard and, arguably, Asante Samuel. Nnamdi Asomugha to Cary Williams to Maxwell.

Bennie Logan and Byron Maxwell both missed Saturday's game against the Redskins. Logan has a calf injury, and Maxwell has a shoulder injury. Neither player practiced during the week, so their absences were expected. But they were two key pieces of the defense missing for the critical game. Beau Allen started at nose tackle in place of Logan, who was sidelined for the first time in his three years with the Eagles. The Eagles played Brandon Bair as the sixth defensive lineman, and he mixed in at nose tackle.
