Getting justice for the victims of childhood sexual abuse in Philadelphia might have gotten a little easier Tuesday. In what he called a "major announcement" for the city, Mayor Nutter signed a bill that will relocate the Police Department's Special Victims Unit, the Department of Human Services' Sexual Abuse Investigations Unit, and the Philadelphia Children's Alliance to a single facility on Hunting Park Avenue in North Philadelphia. "This is one step to making city government more efficient, and I would say more humane and sensitive to the victims of abuse," Nutter said.

What happened to the homeless people who were evicted from under Interstate 95 in Port Richmond last week? The Daily News touched base with four of them Monday. Three were staying in shelters Monday night, and a fourth has been living temporarily in Kensington. After going to Washington last Tuesday with Occupy Philly and Fight for Philly folks to rally for the extension of unemployment insurance, these four and others returned to Philadelphia Friday. Paul Klemmer, 53, an educated man who said he had dropped out of college, said he's still working toward creating a commune with like-minded people.

The eviction notice was in: 48 hours. At a news conference Friday afternoon, Mayor Nutter announced that those camping out on the City Hall apron of Dilworth Plaza as part of Occupy Philadelphia have until 5 p.m. Sunday to pack up their tents and leave.

"This announcement today serves as the promise," Nutter said of those encamped, "you must remove all of your possessions and yourself from that location within the next 48 hours.

Question: I have been married for over 20 years. I love my husband, but I am unhappy because we don't live near my family, and I was promised our hitch in the Midwest was for only five years. He laughs it off and just says, "I won't make as much," or my personal fave, "It won't be the same. " I have been homesick for years. He won't actively look for work, and our kids are both sophomores, one high school, one college. I hate it here. Should I divorce him, since he won't take me seriously?

Should Philadelphia be allowed to buy up property in Tinicum Township to expand the airport and relieve congestions and delays? On Tuesday, a three-judge panel for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit heard oral arguments from lawyers representing Delaware County and Tinicum Township, where two-thirds of the airport is located and which oppose the expansion, and the city of Philadelphia. No decision was expected immediately. In August, a lower court ruled that the city could buy land in Tinicum Township for the airport's expansion.

The Philadelphia District Attorney's Office offered relocation services Wednesday to a Wynnefield family whose home was riddled with gunfire in an apparent case of witness intimidation. Sharletta Ambey's rowhouse was hit by almost 20 bullets one night in late July while she was inside with her fiancé, three youngest children, and toddler grandson. The Inquirer on Wednesday profiled Ambey and her family. Police suspect the attack was meant to intimidate her son Anthony Shelley, 19, who is scheduled to be called to testify next month against a man who allegedly shot him in the face in January on a playground.

Mayor's dubious 'admiration' In Jeff Shields' article on Thursday ("Firefighters endorse Milton Street"), Mayor Nutter's spokesman is quoted as saying that the mayor has "deep respect and admiration for the hard work the city's firefighters do. " Let's take a look at that "admiration. " First, the mayor goes to Harrisburg to lobby the state legislature to slash our pensions. Next, he closes seven fire companies, imposes "brownouts" on three more, and points to a "study" that says this is safe even though fire deaths and firefighter injuries have increased.

Litigation lives on over whether the Barnes Foundation should be allowed to move its priceless collection of art from Merion to Philadelphia. On Tuesday, Judge Stanley R. Ott of Montgomery County Orphans' Court in Norristown directed the state Attorney General's Office and the Barnes Foundation to explain why the Barnes lawsuit should not be reopened. Ott ruled in 2004 that the financially strapped foundation should be allowed to move its collection to Philadelphia. In 2008, he dismissed another petition by opponents seeking to block the move.

The state attorney general and the Barnes Foundation have asked Montgomery County Orphans' Court to dismiss the eleventh-hour legal effort to block the relocation of the foundation's renowned art collection from Merion to Philadelphia. The latest turn in the lengthy legal proceedings over the Barnes and its trove of Cezannes, Renoirs, Matisses, and other masters came after opponents of the move filed a court petition last month to reopen the case. In that petition, the Friends of the Barnes asked Judge Stanley R. Ott, who has presided over the case since 2002, to take another look, based largely on quotes from the 2009 documentary movie The Art of the Steal . The Barnes and the attorney general argue in their responses that there is nothing new in the opponents' legal briefs or the movie, and that the Friends of the Barnes and its members cannot intervene in the case anyway because they have no legal standing.
