MALVERN A lawyer with an office on the Main Line has been charged with selling high-end wines without a liquor license, offering buyers their choice of varieties from a 97-page bottle list, according to the Chester County district attorney. Arthur David Goldman, a 49-year-old lawyer from Malvern with a solo practice in Paoli, stored wine valued at more than $150,000 in floor-to-ceiling racks in his basement and could face nearly $200,000 in fines imposed for each ounce of alcohol seized, officials said.

TRICKSTERS within Mayor Nutter's office of communications teamed up to prank his press secretary for April Fools' yesterday, with members of the City Hall press corps in on it. "Mayor Michael A. Nutter and City officials outlined an action plan to address the dramatic increase in feral turtles along the Schuylkill River," the "official" news release read. Before its issuance at midday, Nutter's staff tipped off the media to the spoof. Some reporters played along in the second-floor hallway outside the mayor's office to "cover" Nutter's comments and watch him "demand an explanation" from press secretary Mark McDonald as to why the feral turtles were an issue.

THE STREETS of Philadelphia are finally clear of snow and ice, but there's something else gumming up the gutters. Trash. And lots of it, in some of the city's more isolated areas. The recent "extreme low temperatures" caused delays in the Streets Department's trash-collection schedule, according to a news release from Mayor Nutter's office, leaving some city blocks cluttered. Residents are encouraged to keep bringing their trash to the curb on their normally scheduled pickup days even if previous piles haven't been cleared, a representative from Philly311 said yesterday.

Culminating more than a year of negotiations with a cast of high-powered lawyers, Pennsylvania State University on Monday announced that it would pay nearly $60 million to settle claims with 26 people who say they were sexually abused by former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky. The university's board of trustees had approved paying up to $60 million earlier this year, and the tab came to $59.7 million, the university said in a news release. The first multimillion-dollar settlement, with a 25-year-old man who was abused in a campus shower, was announced in mid-August.

On sporadic weekends for several months, there has been a familiar presence around the courthouse in Doylestown: rallies by a group of Second Amendment advocates, the Concerned Gun Owners of Bucks County. Last month, when dueling gun-rights rallies were staged around a park in Morrisville, forcing the displacement of Little League games, many of the demonstrators at the pro-gun rally were from the group. It has been a frenetic few months for the group, formed in January amid the gun-rights debate following the Newtown, Conn., massacre.
