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.

AMBLER Brooke Rhea, 16, lives in a sprawling five-bedroom house in pricey Lower Gwynedd Township, where she was raised by two parents who have full-time, well-paid jobs. It's probably fair to say, and Rhea, a junior at Wissahickon High School, would be the first to agree, that she has been lucky. "A lot of people have told me how quickly you can go from doing OK to struggling to find enough to eat," she said Saturday, standing in the parking lot of the Mattie Dixon Community Cupboard, a food pantry for the poor, in downtown Ambler.

Police have seen arguments over parking spots at Cherry Hill Mall, but the one that unfolded Saturday when a woman nearly bit off another's finger has launched an investigation that authorities say stands out even among the department's more unusual ones. On Tuesday, authorities released grainy surveillance images of two women and two younger males. They hope someone will recognize them and provide their identities to police. "We've had disputes in the parking lot, but I've never seen anyone nearly have their finger bitten off," said Cherry Hill Detective Sgt. Rick Humes.

THERE'S BEEN a lot of talk - but not much agreement or action - on how to develop two blocks of Baltimore Avenue in West Philadelphia. The blocks above 50th and 51st streets in the Cedar Park neighborhood have been the subject of two community meetings since November. The latest, a Jan. 30 gathering organized by the Cedar Park Neighbors group and the Baltimore Avenue Business Association, devolved into persistent disruptions and complaints, according to news reports. Visions differ on what to open up on this stretch of Baltimore Avenue, which has two churches, a medical center and some shops.

PHILADELPHIA A 48-inch water main broke Saturday morning, flooding the parking lot of a newly developed North Philadelphia shopping plaza and causing an 80-by-60-foot cave-in, officials said. Multiple stores in Bakers Centre, which cost $58 million to build on the 3400 block of Fox Street in an industrial area and onetime food desert, were closed Saturday after 13 million gallons of water gushed through. The main broke about 4:30 a.m., and Philadelphia Water Department workers arrived to shut the pipe down by 6:20, spokesman John DiGiulio said.

Just beyond the stands at the south end of Lincoln Financial Field, the wide lanes of I-95 had become a parking lot by early afternoon on Sunday, a parking lot interrupted by the more-than-occasional muffled collision. Inside the stadium, there was another pileup taking place in the snow as the Eagles blundered through a terrible first half against the Lions, and didn't start the second half much better. "Around the second quarter, it got pretty cold," tight end James Casey admitted after the Eagles came alive to beat Detroit, 34-20.

TOMORROW, one day after the fourth anniversary of the day he mistakenly became a good Samaritan, Douglas Baylor will move one step closer to justice. I doubt that Baylor, 51, thinks helping someone was a mistake, but his good deed started a chain of events resulting in physical pain, mental anguish and financial loss. After kicking around in the courts for a couple of years, Baylor gets a status conference tomorrow in New Jersey Superior Court. The conference is needed, because the judge needs to know if Baylor wants to move ahead with his civil suit without an attorney.

MALVERN With a DJ in the gym, and an inflatable slide in the parking lot, St. Patrick School looked like a carnival Thursday. And instead of their everyday green uniforms, the pupils were dressed in blue. St. Patrick School was named one of the 2013 National Blue Ribbon Schools, an honor bestowed on 50 private and 236 public schools in the country. And that called for a blue palooza. Principal Patricia O'Donnell said the school in Malvern had been notified by the Department of Education over the summer that it might win the award, and she made sure it was ready to celebrate.

You can smell burgers on the grill from the parking lot and see a team that has won 118 of its last 129 games while fashioning three 12-0 records and capturing six sectional titles in the last 11 seasons. That's why West Deptford is one of the best places in South Jersey to watch a football game. You can walk right into the top row of the stands from the parking lot and then down into the bowl with its rich history and check out that display honoring coach Vince McAneney next to the scoreboard.
