A contest for nutters only, Part I

Not so long ago, I promised to keep readers in the U.K. posted periodically when Philadelphia's mayor, the marvelously named Michael Nutter, made headlines.

I lied; you get just one headline, but it could win you a prize. The headline appeared in a Philadelphia media outlet. Your job is to supply, in no more than two short paragraphs, a news story that belongs under it. Especially creative answers will be rewarded with a book. Contest open to readers everywhere. Decisions of the judges at 1 Detectives Beyond Borders Corporate Center are final.

Here goes:

Nutter to be inaugurated as Philadelphia mayor amid high hopes

Good luck.

Michael Nutter will enter in negotiations shortly to purchase Tower Bridge as part of his hopes to make Philadephia the tourist capital of the world. The extra river crossing to Camden would help the economy of both cities.
Extra money would also be brought in by sponsorship such as the Intel Independence Hall and the Burger King Ben Franklin Bridge, but this would not prevent a property tax hike.

I think one of his predecessors has tried one more of those steps already.
