Dania Sargenc often joked that the neon sign above Benash Liquor Store, with its bold yellow lettering, rusty red background, and arrow pointing toward the door, would one day be hers. The sign went up in 1948, when her uncle opened the store along Route 38 in Cherry Hill. Soon her father worked there, and even through ownership changes during the next 66 years, the sign remained. Then, last week, it came crashing down. What was one man's misfortune - accidentally toppling the sign with a red pickup truck - was Sargenc's chance to reclaim a part of her family's history.

THE THINGS Gregory Hayes lived for, his wife and two young children, are displayed on his Facebook page beneath a picture of the motorcycle he was riding to work Friday night. Police in Upper Darby said Hayes, of Lansdowne, had just left his home about 11:15 p.m. Friday, heading to work as a police officer with the Philadelphia School District, when Salome Seay, an Upper Darby man with a heavy foot and a head full of margaritas, made a hard left on Marshall Road, right into the path of Hayes' Suzuki.

This being spring, the season of renewal, the idea was to be a good citizen, clean the block, rent a truck, and haul the trash to a designated sanitation site. Or so Celia Pretter believed. "I thought I was doing a community service, doing this all nice and legal," the Mount Airy horticulturist said. She wanted to help, "given that the city is in crisis and has no money for schools. " But logic quickly took a backseat to red tape, time was wasted, officials were phoned, funds were squandered, and, truth be told, emotions flared and unkind words were uttered.

NORMA AND WILSON Sanchez met a half-century ago at a dance - and Wilson was on his way to another dance Saturday night when a pickup truck slammed into him on a Northeast Philadelphia street. Wilson Sanchez, 75, and his wife had planned to meet at the dance, a periodic event held at the Northeast Older Adult Center on Bustleton Avenue in Rhawnhurst. Norma went ahead to help set up the event. Her husband was to join her after the festivities got underway. But he never made it. Just before 9 p.m., as Wilson Sanchez crossed Bustleton after parking his car across the busy street from the Older Adult Center, a Ford F-250 slammed into the father of two as he walked across the southbound lanes midblock between Solly Avenue and Stanwood Street.

LYNN NICHOLS, who spent 22 years with the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office and became assistant chief of the Homicide Unit, yesterday pleaded guilty to criminal mischief, a misdemeanor, in connection with a plot to get revenge against a former boyfriend. Under a negotiated guilty plea, Municipal Judge James DeLeon sentenced Nichols, 47, to a year of nonreporting probation and ordered her to pay $884 in restitution to a woman she victimized. Nichols was fired in October and charged with obstruction of justice, filing a false report and criminal mischief after police uncovered her plot.

The star of the Philadelphia Auto Show, which runs through next Sunday at the Convention Center, is not some sex object like the new Corvette Stingray convertible. Rather, it is a beast of burden, a practical hauler, a vehicular tool called the 2015 Ford F-150 pickup truck. This radically redesigned full-size pickup - the first ever to be built with a weight- and, hence, fuel-saving aluminum cab and cargo bed - is a multibillion-dollar corporate gamble that gets star billing because of the F-150's immense popularity and importance.
