After months of talk, City Council moves on the issue of reforming the Board of Revision of Taxes.  Here's some of the things legislation introduced by Councilman Bill Green yesterday would do.

PhillyClout's Friday column introduces you to Gerard Shotzbarger, the city's new jury commissioner, who is still disputing a contempt of court fine from last November.

SugarHouse breaks ground for its Fishtown casino with Mayor Nutter and Councilman Frank DiCicco on board and 50 angry protesters just outside a gate under the watchful eye of police.

And Cardinal Dougherty and the Northeast Catholic are closing at the end of the school year because the Philadelphia Archdiocese doesn't want to "keep putting resources into half-empty buildings."
