The 177 partners at Morgan Lewis & Bockius, the city's largest and the nation's seventh largest law firm, earned $250,000 each in profits during 1986, the highest of any Philadelphia law firm, according to a survey released by The American Lawyer, a publication that reports on the legal profession. However, the amount disbursed in profits to Morgan Lewis' partners, only placed them in a tie for 56th place among the nation's top 99 law firms. The 41 partners at the New York law firm of Wacthell Lipton Rosen & Katz topped the charts, with each partner taking $1.4 million in profits out of the firm's net earnings, the New York-based publication said.

Q: I'm starting my freshman year in college and am leaving my high-school boyfriend behind. I expect to find new romantic partners, but I don't want to get a bad reputation. How many sexual partners is too many? If I have more than a dozen, am I a slut? What's the average for a normal woman?   Mia: The number of men you choose to sleep with is between you and God, if you are a believer. Don't worry about what your high-school boyfriend thinks, and forget about what society says.

WILMINGTON - If Philadelphia has a second casino built, SugarHouse Casino could see its revenue drop by 24 percent, a gaming consultant testified in Chancery Court on Thursday. Because of shifts in the competitive local market for gaming, the owners of SugarHouse would be prudent to scale back their expansion plans, said Steven Rittvo, president of Innovation Group, a casino advisory firm. In 2009, when SugarHouse broke ground on Delaware Avenue in Fishtown, the goal was to have expanded the size and scope of the casino by now, including doubling the number of slots to 3,000 and adding a 10-story parking garage.

City Councilman James Kenney is to introduce legislation Thursday that would give a tax credit to employers who provide health-care benefits to same-sex partners, saying his bill would make Philadelphia, already a popular city for gays and lesbians to live, even more so. "A lot of changes we are making will make Philadelphia more attractive to LGBT people and make them want to settle here," Kenney said. "They are good job creators, good taxpayers, and good employees. " His legislation also would guarantee partners of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people the right to visit their loved ones in hospitals and make medical decisions for them.

Jogging and running races did more than ease daily stresses for Bruce C. Brotzman. "It saved his life," his son, Michael, said. Mr. Brotzman had started running recreationally in the 1970s, but after a business trip to Dallas in 1993, his son said, "he began experiencing shortness of breath. " Tests revealed that "the heart muscle had been attacked by a virus. " But because years of running had given him "cardiac capability to spare," his son said, "he would continue to run nightly," just not as far nor as fast as before, until recently reducing his exercise to walking.

While the Eagles look for a wide receiver to replace Jeremy Maclin, the Soul have found one. Marques Colston, the New Orleans Saints' all-time leader in four receiving categories, won't be playing for the Soul anytime soon. Instead, the 10-year veteran, who joined the Soul as an ownership partner last fall, will be closely involved with the team. "With me being on the back end of my career, I know they are going to show me the door sooner rather than later," Colston, a seventh-round draft pick out of Hofstra, said of the Saints.

Joel Greenberg once donated $1 million to a struggling after-school music program in West Philadelphia, having read about it in the newspaper. The Main Line financial trader didn't bother to return a reporter's call asking why he did so. Greenberg is like that, those who know him say - passionate in his desire to help others, particularly children, and uninterested in self-promotion. "He does not want to be front and center," said Ina B. Lipman, executive director of the Children's Scholarship Fund, another cause that has benefited from Greenberg's largesse.

In the moments before Philadelphia firefighter Joyce Craig lost her life in a West Oak Lane house fire, her coworker Nyree Bright stood at the top of a stairway filled with flames. Bright, on the job for just over two years, was holding the nozzle on a hose - the first line of attack in a predawn basement fire last Dec. 9. Her lieutenant and Craig, a decorated 11-year veteran working an overtime shift, were behind her. Minutes earlier, when they had walked into the house on the 1600 block of Middleton Street, only a light, hazy smoke had filled the first floor.

JON A. BAUGHMAN was an outstanding Philadelphia lawyer - but that's not all he was. "He was a man of total integrity, who loved life, loved his family and loved his job," said his lawyer son, Michael E. Baughman. His father was a man who delighted in feeding the homeless on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway with his church, playing tennis and nurturing seeds in his garden in Fort Washington to produce corn, tomatoes and peppers and flowering fruit trees. But most of all, Jon Baughman, longtime partner at Pepper Hamilton LLP, was a family man. "I keep hearing what a great lawyer he was," said his son. "But he was an even greater father.

Nextdoor.com, a for-profit social-networking site, and the Nutter administration announced a partnership Thursday that will enable the city to communicate directly with Nextdoor's 17,000 local users.

The Streets Department, for example, will be able to send a notification of a street closing to residents in the affected neighborhoods. "This offers us a cost-effective method to communicate with residents in a targeted way," Managing Director Rich Negrin said.
