The sister of John S. Middleton, the billionaire co-owner of the Phillies, has asked a judge to undo a 2003 deal she struck with her brother, saying he fraudulently deprived her of a share of the team and proceeds from the $2.9 billion sale of the family's cigar business. Anna K. Nupson leveled that accusation this week in a filing in Montgomery County Orphans' Court, citing unspecified "new information" that her brother had concealed negotiations to sell the family business while scheming to first buy her and others out for a comparatively trifling $200 million.

On the 2000 block of East York Street in Fishtown, a single-family residence has passed an important test - and received the rigorous passive-house certification. Kate Czembor, an architect working at Kieran Timberlake, and David Kovach, a geologist who commutes to Trenton, bought the house on the condition that the builders and architects certify the new construction as a "passive house. " What is a passive house? It's a concept that relies on natural sources of energy for heating and cooling that can lower energy bills to well under $50 a month in all seasons.

WELL, AT least Sixers majority owner Josh Harris isn't running away from the hard knocks associated with "The Plan. " During his end-of-season assessment of his franchise yesterday, Harris said he is as competitive as anyone and desperately wants to win, but he can stomach consecutive 60-loss seasons. He's an astute businessman but can accept that the Sixers were last in the NBA in average home attendance and played at less than 70 percent capacity in the Wells Fargo Center for a second straight season.

The microscope you can buy with a billion-dollar budget must give a lot better view of things than basic cable. That's the only way to explain what 76ers managing owner Josh Harris witnessed over the course of the first 81 games this season. Before coach Brett Brown was forced to send one more talent-deprived lineup out on the Wells Fargo Center court for the final game of the season against the Miami Heat on Wednesday night, Harris sat down in front of a bank of microphones and a pool of reporters to give his state-of-the-team address.

John S. Middleton, the billionaire part-owner of the Phillies, is battling in court with a younger sister over a 2003 deal in which he bought her and others out of the family's conglomerate for about $200 million and then sold part of the firm four years later for $2.9 billion, according to documents filed in Montgomery County Orphan's Court last week. The sister, Anna K. Nupson, has yet to make specific claims of wrongdoing in court. But she said in a court document last month that she may bring "substantive claims that pertain to possible self-dealing" by her brother.

When he was a child, George H. Phillips worked in the kitchen of his family's restaurant in Sea Isle City, N.J. "He opened clams, got a penny apiece," his wife, Linda, said. When ownership of the business - Busch's Seafood Restaurant - passed to him from his mother, Anna Busch, he was back where he started. "He was the cook; he kept the back of the house going," his wife said. Though the restaurant employed as many as 120 workers at its peak, she said, "he sweated like everybody else in that kitchen.

After President Obama on Dec. 17 called for restoring "travel, commerce, and the flow of information" to communist Cuba, island-watchers at Penn's Wharton School rushed to gather Cuban American magnates, scholars, and U.S. officials to brainstorm investors' return. They met in New York on Thursday for an all-day Cuba Opportunity Summit. Cuba is roughly as big and populous as Pennsylvania. Better beaches too. The two were linked from the 1700s to the 1960s by common interests in tobacco, sugar, chocolate, and medical products.

Liz Hendley has $17 left after paying all of her bills each month. That's barely enough for a week's worth of groceries for herself, much less for her two dogs, Shadow and Chichi. "If it wasn't for Marianne, I couldn't keep up with them," the 79-year-old Warminster woman said. Marianne Iaquinto is the founder of Sam's Hope, a nonprofit that donates pet food, treats, toys, anything a pet would need, to low-income people in Philadelphia and Bucks and Montgomery Counties. In the last 19 months, Sam's Hope, named in memory of a dog Iaquinto used to have, has distributed more than 67,000 pounds of pet food through a combination of home deliveries and partnerships with food pantries and nonprofits that assist seniors.
