Has your favorite Center City restaurant ever been closed for food-safety violations? Has it been taken to court? Or is it squeaky clean? In Philadelphia, it can be tough to tell. The city does post all inspection findings online, but they're not easy to find, and it can take a detective's zeal to decipher them. No A-B-C letter grades are posted out front, as in Los Angeles and New York. There's no consumer-friendly summary that is mandatory in New Jersey ("satisfactory/conditionally satisfactory")

The Philadelphia Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon may not happen this year, for one very big reason: the pope. This fall's visit by Pope Francis will be his first to the United States and the first papal visit to Philadelphia since 1979. He will appear in conjunction with the World Meeting of Families, the world's largest gathering of Catholic families, which runs Sept. 22 to 27. The conference and his appearance overlap with what would be the 38th running of the race, which has traditionally been held on the third Sunday in September.

ISSUE | END-OF-LIFE CARE Being there, praying for their journey It was 40-some years ago that I carried my 5-year-old son into Sacred Heart Home ("Divine Care in Hunting Park," Dec. 29). It was the light at the end of a four-year tunnel, and he had been discharged from two hospitals as terminally ill. But I cannot describe the loving care he was given at Sacred Heaert, and the support our family received until his death. And never a penny from us or friends or relatives: Can you imagine what that meant to us, with my being a stay-at-home mother of three other children?

William Penn might have founded Philadelphia, but it's Benjamin Franklin who gave the city a civic identity, a communal soul, and a future. In turn, Philadelphia made Benjamin Franklin, transforming him from a 17-year-old runaway indentured servant to a world-renowned innovator, diplomat, and scientist. His story is told in "Franklin's Spark," the eighth episode of Sam Katz's TV documentary series, Philadelphia: The Great Experiment , which airs 7:30 p.m. Thursday on 6ABC (WPVI-TV)

Even in Texas, testified business owner Suzanne Lee, Philadelphia's Ironworkers Union Local 401 was reputed to be one group you didn't want to cross. But when one of her best customers at Ultimate Tower Service Inc. asked her to work on a 1,000-foot television tower in Roxborough, she overcame her reluctance, she told a federal jury Tuesday. "We had multiple jobs from the owner of the tower, American Towers, and we didn't want to turn any work down," Lee said. "But we didn't want to come to this area.

AT YESTERDAY'S blessing of the new atrium at the National Shrine of St. John Neumann, children sang angelically. Bishop John J. McIntyre sprinkled Holy Water and Mayor Nutter drew laughs by confessing that he was in need of the dousing he received. The celebration, which coincided with the annual Feast of St. John Neumann and the 155th anniversary of his death, also marked the beginning of the year in which the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and the city plan to host Pope Francis and multitudes of the faithful at the World Meeting of Families in September.
