The city's on-again, off-again romance with banning smoking in all workplaces is, for the moment, showing signs of working out. Though time is running out for City Council to vote on the measure before it breaks for the summer, one roadblock has been cleared: Mayor Street is at least on speaking terms with Councilman Michael A. Nutter, the sponsor of the bill. Last Thursday, the mayor had complained that Nutter, who appeared one vote shy of getting the bill passed, was trying to ram the legislation through Council no matter what the cost.

With Mayor Nutter about to face city voters again, he's making a smart political move - as well as one that's in the interests of good government - by expanding the rules for most city workers on accepting gifts, safeguards on sexual harassment limits on outside employment, and by imposing a needed ban on nepotism. Nutter's 2007 election campaign on a reform platform included a memorable "throw out the bums" TV ad showing the top of City Hall being ripped off. So the ethics rules the mayor issued as executive orders Tuesday were a welcome reminder of why Philadelphians rallied behind him. The mayor, of course, would argue that he's kept his reform fervor well-stoked all along.

For Michael Nutter, even life in the nation's capital is good. The Democratic nominee for mayor of Philadelphia was greeted warmly yesterday by the U.S. Senate leadership, who promised attention to the urban agenda. For his part, Nutter said he would make regular trips to Washington and intended to make better use of Pennsylvania's "powerful" congressional delegation to advance the city's interests. "So what's next?" asked Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D., Ill.), as Nutter explained his status as mayor-presumptive.

With Mayor Nutter facing longshot federal ex-convict T. Milton Street Sr., there's no question that this year's Democratic mayoral primary is considerably different than the heated five-way battle fought in the 2007 Philadelphia race. Just how different became clearer with the release Friday of new campaign finance data. Consider: In the four months leading up to the 2007 primary, Nutter pulled in nearly $1.7 million - double what he collected in the same period this year.

Keeping his vow, Mayor Nutter Thursday vetoed City Council legislation that preserves the DROP pension program. Nutter also conceded that Council could have the last word. Council passed the bill last week by a 14 to 3 vote, enough votes to comfortably override a veto. He promised his veto even though the legislation reduces the costs of DROP. The program has cost the city pension fund at least $100 million since its 1999 creation and Council's new version of the retirement program claims the program will cost $15 to $20 million for a period of years.

MAYOR NUTTER yesterday signed an executive order that drastically limits the city's cooperation with requests from the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency to hold people accused of minor crimes for possible deportation proceedings. The city will now require ICE to provide a judicial warrant - signed by a judge or magistrate and stating that the person is suspected of a first- or second-degree felony - when requesting that local authorities detain someone longer than they otherwise would, a practice known as "ICE holds.

Democratic mayoral candidate Michael A. Nutter yesterday proposed creating a $10 million-a-year tax-credit program to encourage Philadelphia businesses to hire up to 1,000 ex-offenders. In announcing the plan, Nutter noted that released prisoners commit a high percentage of the city's crimes - while research indicates that the most effective way to keep them out of trouble is to get them jobs. But many employers refuse to hire anyone with a criminal record. Nutter's plan is designed to try to change that.

After losing an "ugly, ugly" race for City Council's 4th District seat to investment specialist Michael A. Nutter, incumbent Ann Land said she's through with public office after her term ends in January. "I'm too much of a lady to be in this game anymore," Land, 59, said after hugging and handshaking her way through a somber group of campaign workers at her no-frills headquarters on Ridge Avenue near Kingsley Street in Roxborough. Though she wore a cheerful face for her troops, the loss clearly stung Land, who has held the Council seat since 1981.
