When the Sweetwater Casino burned down this summer, Mullica Township residents grieved for the waterfront restaurant and the warm family feeling that had been its charm for 80 years. Generations had gathered at the Burlington County landmark for first dates, birthdays, anniversaries, wedding receptions and holiday parties. They watched sunsets at the marina and boats coming and going on the Mullica River. Sweetwater was the beating heart of the sleepy Pine Barrens town, and the location of a fund-raising regatta held each August to benefit a local child with a life-threatening disease.

Sales of Beyond Knitting Concepts' fashion merchandise total just $600. Yet Aisha Alexander, cofounder of the venture started a little more than six months ago with a knitting buddy, confidently describes herself as a successful business owner. "It's all about your state of mind," the South Philadelphia resident explained. Yuri Schneiberg sees it differently. In fact, he's staking a new business venture on a belief that he's right. Success as a small-business owner requires much more than a positive outlook, Schneiberg said - it requires an education specially designed for entrepreneurs.

What if the NFL held an owners' meeting and nobody showed? Well, almost nobody. The league kicked off its annual March shindig yesterday at the Desert Springs Marriott Resort and Spa. But more than a third of league's 32 owners were nowhere to be found. Not on the golf course. Not on the tennis courts. Not in the bar. Not in the health club. Nowhere. The reason for this unprecedented absenteeism has nothing to do with canceled flights or millionaire stomach flu and everything to do with a trial.

The National Football League's owners failed yet again to elect a new commissioner yesterday, prompting a visibly irritated Pete Rozelle to suggest that he may vacate the post. After a 10-hour meeting here, the 28 franchise owners failed to break a stalemate between supporters of two candidates, Jim Finks and Paul Tagliabue. On the fourth and final ballot of the day, Tagliabue received 16 votes and Finks 11. Al Davis of the Los Angeles Raiders, who has abstained on most previous ballots, left the meeting before the final vote.

The Pittsburgh Pirates' owners have accepted the mayor's offer of $3.5 million in Three Rivers Stadium lease concessions to help cover their financial losses this season, which are expected to be at least $20 million. Owners are still weighing mayor Tom Murphy's offer of an additional $6.4 million in financial assistance, possibly in the form of another loan, because of strings the mayor has attached. Chairman Vincent Sarni, who did not return a phone call, has notified the mayor that the owners will take the $3.5 million in lease enhancements.

Hoping to jump-start stalled labor negotiations, major league baseball owners are preparing a revised offer to present to striking players, the Dallas Morning News reported today. That offer, which will represent the first movement by management in more than four months, is expected to be made within two weeks, according to a highly placed ownership source. The new offer is expected to be a more generous version of the salary-cap system owners put on the table June 14. That one guaranteed players a 50-50 split of all revenues while abolishing salary arbitration and creating a new tier of restricted free agency.

NFL union leaders, who less than a day earlier said they were encouraged by the progress of contract talks with management, yesterday charged that the owners were stalling the discussions in an effort to test the solidarity of striking players. According to Doug Allen, assistant director of the NFL Players Association, the owners have asked that the length of the contract agreement be doubled from three to six years, among a series of other less dramatic changes proposed during the fourth day of talks.

With less than a week to complete the deal, John J. Rigas probably will learn today whether major league club owners will give him preliminary approval to buy the Pittsburgh Pirates. Rigas needs a positive vote of the 10-member major league ownership committee to begin serious negotiations with the current Pirates owners. The cable TV franchise owner already has made a preliminary bid of $80 million for the money-losing team. The ownership committee, which is expected to meet via conference call, consists of the two league presidents and representatives of eight teams.

Marge Schott might be right when she says people are trying to force her out. Only it's not someone who wants to buy the Cincinnati Reds, it's other owners and top baseball officials. Acting commissioner Bud Selig and National League president Len Coleman prefer that Schott step back from day-to-day operation of the Reds, two high-ranking baseball officials said this week, speaking on condition they not be identified. Officials can act under rules protecting the "best interests" of baseball.

Sheldon Tarnopol, 80, of Mount Laurel, the third generation of his family to own retail fur stores in the Philadelphia region, died of heart failure Monday, Sept. 19, at Cooper University Hospital in Camden. His grandfather, Max, arrived in North Philadelphia in the late 1800s, bringing with him the fur sales training he had learned in the Russian Empire, Sheldon Tarnopol told the Inquirer in 1995. Max Tarnopol opened the first of his family's stores at 16th and Diamond Streets. In 1956, the family moved its business to the City Line Shopping Center in Philadelphia and in 1991 to a Montgomery Avenue location in Bala Cynwyd.

SOFTLY BUT firmly, the dog trainer admonished me. That's what Cesar Millan does, he says: He trains owners, not their dogs. That's how he achieved worldwide fame with his TV series  The Dog Whisperer. Millan and his son Andre were in town getting footage for  Dog Nation,  his new Nat Geo WILD TV series that will air in 2017. Philadelphia was the first of seven cities to be visited. The show's publicist had emailed me to ask whether I would like an interview with him. "No, but my dog would," I replied.

Paul B. Schimmel, 91, a World War II veteran who served as an infantryman in the Battle of the Bulge and was twice awarded a Purple Heart, died Thursday at the Sunrise Senior Living Facility in Haverford. Mr. Schimmel served in the Battle of the Bulge from Dec. 16, 1944, to Jan. 25, 1945, and spent some of his time in the Army helping refugees in camps in France. Although he "saw some real atrocities there," said his oldest son, Rob Schimmel, "one of his great pleasures was reliving the war, because it gave him an appreciation" for what he had in peace time.

Mr. Antar started working in Brooklyn, and the chain eventually grew into 43 stores. But he fled to Israel after being indicted on charges of securities fraud and insider trading.

A Sicklerville man was sentenced to 15 months in prison Thursday for evading taxes by failing to report wages paid to undocumented immigrants who worked at his dry cleaning business, authorities said. Phillip Hui, 38, had pleaded guilty in federal court in Camden to conspiracy to obstruct and impede the IRS and harboring illegal aliens. By not reporting the wages he paid to 27 of the immigrants in 2012 and 2013 at his Voorhees Township business, New Eastern Cleaners, Hui avoided paying nearly $98,000 in employment taxes, authorities said.

A Philadelphia bar owner and former Montgomery County stockbroker pleaded guilty Tuesday to defrauding clients - many elderly - of more than $400,000 and using their money to purchase his South Street bar, the U.S. Attorney's Office said. William Joseph Boyle, 47, of Bala Cynwyd, who owns the Boyler Room bar at 328 South St. in Queen Village, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Harvey Bartle III to all charges against him - five counts of mail fraud, three counts of wire fraud, and one count each of securities fraud and investment-adviser fraud.

Almost two years later, the victim remained so traumatized, she could not speak at Thursday's sentencing of admitted rapist Brandon Menley. But after she left the Philadelphia courtroom in tears during a break, the woman returned to court, and Assistant District Attorney Branwen McNabb read aloud her handwritten note. "I think this is a tremendous example of her strength," McNabb told Common Pleas Court Judge Jeffrey P. Minehart. "She says she 'accepts the defendant's family's apology and she forgives him in her heart' but she 'is fearful this will happen to someone else.' " Minehart agreed, sentencing the 31-year-old former Reading man to 30 to 60 years in prison, followed by 15 years' probation and registration as a sex offender.

("Technical delay for Jewelers Row plan," Thursday). But little has been said about the owners of these properties. If the owners' rights to sell their properties to be used for a different purpose are taken away, the property values are diminished.

A federal judge has tossed out a Philadelphia taxi company's lawsuit that claimed Uber was trying to destroy the taxicab business. U.S. District Judge Robert Kelly dismissed the case Friday, according to court documents. Sergei Lemberg, the lawyer representing the owners of the small cab business, Coachtrans, said he was seeking certification from Kelly of certain issues in the case, so an appeal could be pursued in Pennsylvania Supreme Court. "The vast majority of medallion owners in Philadelphia and also in other cities are small-time immigrants," Lemberg said, adding that his clients, Boris and Alla Kautsky, depended on their three cab medallions for income.

When Bosun Odeniyi bought a taxi certificate in 1990, it meant freedom. Freedom from waiting for hours at the garage to pick up a car, from the ever-present leasing fees, and from not knowing whether a cab would even be available to drive. In 2016, the taxi certificate - now called a medallion - is certified dead weight. The medallion was long considered an ironclad investment, hitting its peak price at $545,000 in July 2014. But UberX came to Philadelphia in October of that year, sending a chill through the industry even before it arrived.
