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.

My recent column on push-ups, in which orthopedic surgeon John Fenlin of the Rothman Institute tossed a hand grenade by recommending that people over 40 stop doing body-weight exercises such as push-ups, pull-ups, and dips, generated a huge response from readers. Many were alarmed by his warning and wanted guidance about sensible ways to adapt push-ups so they're less perilous, as well as advice about suitable substitutes. But others objected to Fenlin's counsel, claiming that body-weight exercises are an important and valuable part of their fitness regimen that pose little danger if executed carefully and properly.

Downingtown's 28-year-old mayor, who is facing drunken-driving charges, applied Monday for a prison alternative program. Joshua A. Maxwell waived his preliminary hearing Thursday on charges that include driving under the influence and careless driving. He is seeking admittance to the county's Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition program, his attorney, Dawson R. Muth, said Monday. Maxwell did not return a telephone call seeking comment. 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.

Everyone treats "neo-soul" like a dirty word. Shame, that. Sure, the genre had funny hats and too many Fender Rhodes piano interludes (I'm looking at you, Jamiroquai). But the Drambuie-soaked ambience of R&B's simmering heat, hip-hop's rhythmic cool, jazz's gymnastic breeziness and their combined attitudes made the world safe for geniuses of modern soul such as Raphael Saadiq, Cee-Lo Green and Maxwell. Maxwell is the 35-year-old crooner/composer who between 1996 and 2001 released three cinematic classics of neo-soul, then dropped out for a while after that.

BYRON MAXWELL sees an environment in Philadelphia like the one he experienced in Seattle, Maxwell said yesterday. He did not seem to be referencing the wet ground or the blustery skies, as Maxwell introduced himself to a new city after signing a contract billed at 6 years and $63 million, with $25 million guaranteed. "It was just an easy match, it was just a perfect fit," Maxwell said. "A lot of the things they're doing here are similar" to Seattle. "It just meshed. " Maxwell referenced the emphasis on "daily habits," Chip Kelly's "win the day" dictum.

Chip Kelly may be letting one veteran Eagles player go after another, but he does have a contingency plan in place and he has already gone about enacting it. The Eagles have contracts in place with free agents Byron Maxwell and Frank Gore that would become final when the new league year opens Tuesday at 4 p.m., several NFL sources told The Inquirer on Sunday. Kelly's headfirst dive into free agency is also expected to net the Eagles many other players as the coach goes about replacing running back LeSean McCoy, wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, linebacker Trent Cole, guard Todd Herremans and cornerback Cary Williams - all of whom have been cast away so far this offseason.

TURNS OUT, having Chip Kelly in charge of personnel is a lot like having Chip Kelly in charge of your offense, only there are no pauses for the officiating crew to get set for the snap. The Eagles blazed through the first 36 hours or so of the NFL's "legal tampering" period before the start of free agency tomorrow afternoon at 4 with a definite sense of purpose. The biggest move was the agreement with Seattle corner Byron Maxwell, first reported by Houston radio host Jayson Braddock, for what ESPN said was $63 million over 6 years, with a $25 million guarantee.

Byron Maxwell, during a media tour last week, said that he "definitely . . . would have to consider" the Eagles if they were interested in signing him. No offense to Jeffrey Lurie's franchise, but Maxwell would consider the Philadelphia Soul if they could find a way into the NFL and pony up enough cash to lure the cornerback away from what is expected to be a host of suitors once free agency opens on Tuesday. "I'll stay in the back, but just give me the check," Maxwell said in January when he was asked whether he minded not having one of the prestige podiums during Super Bowl Media Day, even though he would be one of the more sought-after free agents.

PHOENIX - Byron Maxwell was the only member of the "Legion of Boom" who did not get one of the Seahawks' 15 podium spots on Super Bowl media day. Maxwell's roaming among Seattle's role players on the overcrowded floor of US Airways Center seemed beneath a player who could potentially be one of the more sought-after free agents in the offseason. Such is life for the junior member of the Seahawks' starting secondary, but the soft-spoken cornerback said he didn't care. "To be honest with you, I'll [stay]

"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.

Chip Kelly was named professional coach of the year by the Maxwell Football Club on Thursday, the one-year anniversary of his hiring as Eagles coach. The Philadelphia club's award is named after former Eagles coach Greasy Neale. Kelly led the Eagles to a 10-6 finish and the NFC East title, including a 7-1 mark in the final eight games of the regular season. It was a six-win improvement from 2012. The Eagles lost to the New Orleans Saints in the opening round of the playoffs. Kelly oversaw the NFL's No. 2 offense this season.
