St. Martin of Tours Roman Catholic Church scored a victory with the New Hope Zoning Hearing Board in December, when the board orally agreed to let the church operate a pay parking lot that neighbors long had opposed. But attorneys for the church have found the zoning board's recent written decision radically different from the December pronouncement and have appealed it in Bucks County Court. The board mediated a debate between the church, which wants to raise money by offering parking-strapped tourists its lot, and residents, who argue those tourists are public nuisances.

An executive order prohibiting the consumption of alcohol at tailgate parties in the JFK Stadium parking lot has been delayed while the city's Law Department works out details of the proposed restriction. Mayor Goode was to have signed the document yesterday, as part of several steps aimed at controlling crowd behavior during Eagles games at Veterans Stadium. On Tuesday, city officials, the Eagles and Ogden Allied Services Corp., which runs the concessions at the Vet, agreed to ban the sale of beer at the team's final regular-season game on Dec. 24. The ban also would cover any playoff games at the Vet, but fans who watch the games from superboxes, skyboxes and the stadium restaurant would still be able to purchase alcoholic beverages.

It may be all right for the birds, but the sight of a 6-foot, 4-inch, 175- pound man bathing nude in the Pennview Savings Association parking lot was too much for bank employees - especially when it became a daily occurrence. They called the police. Montgomery Township police caught him in the act Friday morning. He was rinsing off with a garden hose at the side of the bank. Police arrested Daniel Dean, 32, of no fixed address, at 7:15 a.m. at Pennview Savings, 706 N. Wales Rd. He was charged with open lewdness, disorderly conduct and possessing a prohibitive offensive weapon.

The Media Borough Council has approved a bid for the reconstruction of a parking lot at Galey and State Streets, but not without attracting some controversy. G. Antonini Construction Co. of Broomall was the low bidder - at $28,417 - for the new lot, which will have meters, 24 spaces and new curbing and landscaping. The present lot, which does not have meters, holds about 13 cars. Before the motion was approved by a 7-0 vote Thursday, Mayor Frank Daly asked that a council member explain whose idea it was to condemn and reconstruct the lot, and why it was necessary.

A group of residents opposed to SEPTA's proposal to build an 88-space commuter parking lot on a portion of the 18-acre Duer tract has mounted a campaign to thwart the plan. William Peck, a former township commissioner whose Lindenshade Lane home abuts the tract, said the group has begun a petition drive and hopes to collect 600 signatures in the next few weeks to persuade the Township Board of Commissioners to deny the proposal. Peck said most of his and other residents' objections focus on the partial loss of land that the township acquired in 1996 for the express purpose of preserving open space.

The Zoning Hearing Board will further study an application to demolish a house and make way for a parking lot on North State Road - a decision that pleased more than 35 residents who went to Thursday night's meeting to protest the request. Simon Oulouhojian, owner of Speedway Auto Radiator on West Chester Pike, has asked the board to grant a variance so that he can knock down a house he owns at 15 N. State Rd. to add parking. The house abuts the shop. Three variances are needed, though the primary one would grant permission to put a commercial parking lot on a lot zoned for residential use. Oulouhojian, 64, testified that the house was badly run down and that the only financially feasible action was to raze it. He said he had bought the house without looking at the inside, hoping to turn it into a duplex.

The Montgomery County District Attorney's Office yesterday filed third-degree murder charges against the man who fatally shot a 19-year-old Willow Grove man July 1 in the parking lot of an Easton Road apartment complex. The shooting was initially investigated as a possible case of self-defense. That claim was rejected, however, after two witnesses told county investigators and Upper Moreland police that James Ford, the victim, was no longer carrying a weapon - specifically, a baseball bat - when George W. Grundy shot him at the Willow Hill Apartments in Willow Grove.

In the end, Bucks County lawyer Richard Patton did go to prison. But not for long enough to satisfy the survivors of Patton's girlfriend, Heather Demou, who died in a fall from his truck during a parking-lot squabble last year. Patton, 53, a former state prosecutor, yesterday was sentenced in Bucks County Court to serve three to 23 months in the county prison. "We were instructed to sit tall as choirboys and let the justice system do its work," Demou's brother, Mike Butler, said after the sentencing.

The New Jersey Casino Control Commission has been asked to referee a multimillion-dollar real estate battle between Donald Trump and Penthouse magazine publisher Robert Guccione. The fate of the Pratt Hotel Corp.'s proposed Sands Hollywood project could hang in the balance. In a petition filed yesterday, Penthouse asked the commission to order Trump to rescind a $16 million offer he has made for a 3.8-acre parking-lot site in the heart of Atlantic City. Penthouse argued that the bid, entered in a complicated bankruptcy case pending in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Camden, was nothing more than a "veiled attempt" to thwart the Sands Hollywood project.

Residents who made periodic trips to Tabernacle Township Committee meetings over the last two years complaining about the noise of the rock bands and rowdy patrons at Raymond's Bar will have to perk up their ears to hear the clink of forks and conversation of the dinner crowd that Raymond's now hopes to attract. "We've changed our clientele altogether," said Raymond Bakuckas, owner of Raymond's, which has dropped the "Bar" and replaced it with "Tavern and Eatery. " The restaurant has given up live music.

ATLANTIC CITY - Police investigators continued Tuesday to comb through ashes and scorch marks left in a parking lot where an SUV belonging to a rabbi was torched last Wednesday night after he parked it before conducting Rosh Hashanah services at the adjacent Rodef Sholom Orthodox Synagogue. Rabbi David Kushner said that while it was unclear whether the case was specifically a hate crime, it is being investigated as a "suspicious" fire by police. Police declined to comment on the case and have not released an official report on it. "Until the police finish their investigation, it is impossible to know what the motive was, what was going through somebody's mind," said Kushner, of Philadelphia's Rhawnhurst section, who recently became Rodef Sholom's rabbi.

WHEN PARX RACING management made the decisions to move the $1 million Pennsylvania Derby to later in September, institute a bonus system and couple the track's signature race with the Cotillion Stakes to make it an "event," even the most optimistic never could have envisioned a day like Saturday. A glorious final Saturday of summer, parking lots overflowing, the grounds definitely more crowded than they have been in years. (There is no admission so there is no way to know how many people were there.)

It starts as a distant speck against the sky. As it comes closer, it grows bigger. Soon, the watchers know, they just know, it's going to be something good. Maybe a kestrel. Maybe a bald eagle. The magnificent fall migration of raptors has begun, and it's going to get better by the day until the action slows in mid-November. From Cape May to the Appalachians, from Fort Washington State Park to Rose Tree Park in Media, avid hawk-watchers are out enjoying the parade, identifying and logging the hawks, harriers, peregrines, vultures, eagles, ospreys, and more that soar overhead, and sometimes swoop in for an even better show.

Like a sentry who doesn't know how to dress for the job, Rock Hill Road looks too post-industrial- disheveled to be one of the main gateways to Lower Merion Township. After more than a decade of planning, work finally is beginning that could dress up a thoroughfare where once-mighty quarries have been supplanted by a hodgepodge of small buildings, body shops, and open lots. On the south side of Rock Hill Road near Belmont Avenue, not far from the Schuylkill Expressway, the steel skeleton of a 14,000-square-foot CVS pharmacy is rising.

Rick Forman wanted to pay attention in class at Rutgers University, but he just couldn't handle it. "I was crawling out of my skin," said Forman. "I'm like, 'I have to get out of here,' because I'm in the back figuring out how many thousands of dozens of T-shirts I needed to buy for the flea market. " Forman, 54, who started selling T-shirts at flea markets while he was still in high school, never graduated from college. But he did graduate from flea markets to run Forman Mills, a $275 million retail chain with 2,700 employees, 31 stores painted an aggressive yellow, and a loudmouth ad campaign: Stretch those bills at Forman Mills.

After two days of digging up a local park in search of the bodies of two alleged murder victims, Upper Darby police now question the information that came from the man who claimed he killed the pair. John Gonce, 30, who is awaiting trial in Philadelphia in two other killings, said he killed a prostitute and a pimp two years ago, dismembering them and burying their remains in Indian Rock Park in Springfield Township, Delaware County. He claimed that he killed the pair after they had ripped him off. After investigating, however, police are skeptical.

Andrew Block said.

Koons, 31, of Media, died from a fractured skull two weeks after Pettit punched and knocked him to the ground in the parking lot of the Oasis strip club, on Essington Avenue near 70th Street.
