The prosecutor called David Gentile a "serial shoplifter," an unrepentant thief who over nine months last year struck Target stores in four counties, pilfering only high-end Texas Instrument graphing calculators. Gentile's lawyer laughed at that, calling her 35-year-old client a "completely unsuccessful criminal," a drug addict who couldn't help but get arrested. Both descriptions may be apt, but Philadelphia Common Pleas Court Judge Frank Palumbo's sentence - three to 23 months in prison followed by three years' reporting probation - satisfied neither side.

It could have been some Warhol-inspired pop art on the wall, but instead of soup cans, almost 100 shiny teakettles caught the light in the foyer of the Whitney Museum of American Art on Tuesday night. Sporting red referees' whistles at the end of their spouts, they proceeded to strike up a calliopelike chorus of "My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean," in a performance that challenged onlookers to keep a straight face. The teakettles, which don't ordinarily break into song, were designed by Michael Graves, a man perhaps better known for his colorful, classically inspired architecture and, to those who have visited Walt Disney World, for his Swan and Dolphin Hotels.

The Rendell administration expects that Philadelphians will be reaping some of the benefits from the six new stores that will be opened by the end of next year by Target Stores, the other mega-marketer - other than Wal-Mart and Kmart, that is. "Target will bring more than 1,200 new jobs to the region," said Kevin Feeley, deputy mayor for communications. "We anticipate that some of those jobs will go to Philadelphians. And when Target expands into Philadelphia, even more will go to Philadelphians.

In the trenches, retailers are slugging through a disheartening Christmas season. TeleCheck Services Inc., which monitors Christmas sales by tracking check transactions, reported a 7.2 percent decline in holiday sales from last year. But at the Marriott Hotel in Center City yesterday, all that gloom and doom was eclipsed by visions of a future rosy with possibilities as representatives of retail chains described their plans to expand in the Philadelphia region. Today, at the International Council of Shopping Centers' deal-making sessions, retailers' real estate representatives will be huddling with regional shopping-center developers to see how many of those rosy plans can be translated into signed leases.

A Philadelphia jeweler, accused of helping direct a team of "smash-and- grab" robbers who allegedly stole more than $2 million in jewelry in five states, was released on bail yesterday. U.S. Magistrate Judge Peter B. Scuderi freed Alexander Khaytin on $500,000 bail after he posted $10,000 in cash and family and friends posted real estate valued at more than $600,000. Scuderi warned Khaytin and the four property owners that all four homes would be forfeited if Khaytin fled or failed to make court appearances.

ANOTHER SIDE OF FRIES French fries are bad for you, right? Wrong, says Swedish food expert Ingrid Lamberg, who maintains that pommes frites, as they are known in Europe, contain a near-complete supply of vitamins and minerals and, if cooked properly, are relatively low in fat. Lamberg says boiling sliced spuds briefly and letting them dry before frying cuts down on the fat absorbed. STEP-BY-STEP A grass-roots spiritual renewal is sweeping the country, but not with more of you going to religious services.

Law enforcement officials in Montgomery and Lehigh Counties on Thursday reported busting up a retail-fraud scheme in which thieves resold online merchandise they had bought at knockdown prices from Target. The knockdown, officials said Thursday, was done by the thieves themselves. In 46 cases from February to July, they affixed fake UPC labels they had created to pricey items on Target's shelves. The UPC stickers allowed the thieves to buy items at steeply discounted prices.

The first of four smaller, "flexible-format" Target stores opened Wednesday in Center City, marking Target Corp's first foray into a market that's key to its urban push. The opening of Target Express at 1126 Chestnut St. at 7 a.m, attracted the millennial demographic - aged 19 to 34. "We have been extremely busy all day," said manager Alex Defeo, 24, just after 5:30 p.m., as the after-work crowd began filtering in to explore the latest addition to the Washington Square West neighborhood.

Opening dates have been set for the two Target stores coming to Center City this year. The first, located at 1128 Chestnut St., is scheduled to open July 20, according to a Target spokeswoman. Another Target is slated to open at 1900 Chestnut St. on Oct. 5. The stores are what the company describes as "flexible format" locations, which have slimmed-down designs and emphasize order pickups from Target's website. The locations are part of Target's expansion into urban areas and will be smaller than the retail giant's typical suburban shopping centers.

The national conversation on gun violence in and around schools took another detour to Philadelphia yesterday as more than 50 clergymen, students and parents marched from Masterman High School to a North Philadelphia pistol range. "We could be a world where we don't need guns for self-protection," said the Rev. Charles Howard, the University of Pennsylvania's chaplain, as protesters congregated outside the Gun Range, on Percy Street near Spring Garden. Howard spoke alongside other religious leaders from Heeding God's Call, a group supporting greater regulation of guns.

A KNIFE-WIELDING robber tried to bilk Sharon Doyle out of a hard day's pay at Stan's Health Food, her store on Frankford Avenue near Wellington Street in Mayfair, police said. But he didn't realize that Doyle, 46, spent more than a decade working in law enforcement, including stints in the Philadelphia Police Department and the Secret Service. He also didn't know that he had brought a knife to a gunfight. And he ended up in the morgue with a bullet in his chest from Doyle's .38-caliber revolver, according to police.

GLOUCESTER COUNTY A team of Gloucester County students is learning how to tackle what President Obama has called "one of the most serious economic and national security challenges we face as a nation": the cyberthreat. The 30 students, ages 12 to 18, are members of the Gloucester County Composite Squadron of the U.S. Civil Air Patrol, the auxiliary of the Air Force. The squadron is similar to ROTC. It helped distribute food to people in a Shore town in the aftermath of Sandy, led a toy drive for children with autism, and participated in other community activities.
