A fatal double shooting Tuesday night of victims Rohan “Sonny” Bennett, 13, and his brother, Christopher Malcolm, 17, rocked the quiet Overbrook Park neighborhood.

Hite will be paid $300,000 salary in addition to benefits.

The Philadelphia School Reform Commission yesterday approved a contract for superintendent William Hite that will pay him $300,000 annually. Hite, 51, was selected last month to replace Arlene Ackerman. He will be charged with bringing some stability to a district that has 249 schools, an estimated 146,000 students, a $2.5 billion budget and has dealt with mind-boggling deficits over the last few years that have led to massive layoffs and school closures. Hite will be tardy for the start of the school year, beginning the job full-time Oct. 1 as he finishes his commitment as superintendent of Prince George's County Public Schools in Maryland. Until then, Hite will work two days per week and get paid a daily rate. “That’s a really heavy lift and its starting to become heavy already,” Hite said yesterday about the transition in a telephone interview. Although he would like to be more involved in plans for school openings, Hite said he plans to be here for the first day of school. “I plan to be present for first day of school in Philadelphia so I’ll get to see first-hand the opening and how well staff can execute on that,” he said.

Accused killer no easy fit for mass murderer profile POOL PHOTO BY RJ SANGOSTI/THE DENVER POST

Unless James Holmes chooses to say why he went on the lethal shooting spree he is accused of, the analyses offered by forensic psychiatrists, based on their study of mass murders, may be as close as we get. From what is known of the attack and his life so far, experts say Holmes was probably not suffering from as serious a mental illness as Jared Loughner, who was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia after killing six people in Tucson, Ariz., in 2011. “People want to believe that someone who does something like this must be floridly psychotic,� said Louis Schlesinger, professor of forensic psychology at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York, who has studied mass killers since the

1970s. “They think, ‘Ah, he’s mentally ill; now I understand.’ It makes people feel they and people they know would never behave this way.� The scarier prospect is that Holmes’s psychological illness was more common, less severe and not easily detectable. As forensic psychiatry experts try to figure out from afar what is wrong with Holmes, they are focusing on three details of the shooting: The targets were strangers to the killer, not colleagues or acquaintances; the shooter did not commit suicide or invite his own death at the hands of police; and Holmes warned authorities about his booby-trapped apartment before the explosives killed anyone.

Warning signs hard to detect NEW YORK. Based on mass

murderers he has studied, criminologist James Alan Fox says: “[There’s] a consistent profile in which someone has a history of frustration and failure despite promise and aptitude. But they also have a very weak support system: They don't

have [anyone] to put their thoughts in perspective.� “There are thousands and thousands of people who fit that pattern and do not kill anyone,� Fox said. “You can’t use it to predict who will become [a mass murderer]. These are not red flags, but yellow ones. They become red only in retrospect, when the blood flows.� REUTERS

Experts are exploring the mind of James Holmes from afar.

Holmes’s mental state is that he clearly intended to survive the massacre, wearing body armor during the attack and then surrendering to authorities. In contrast, say experts, most of the mass killers they call “pseudocommandos� — those who kill in public, plan meticulously and are armed to the teeth — expect to die in their rampage, noted Dr. James Knoll,

a forensic psychiatrist at SUNY Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, in a 2010 study. Virginia Tech’s Seung-Hui Cho killed himself, as did the two teenagers who fatally shot 13 people at Colorado’s Columbine High School in April 1999. “That [Holmes] didn’t is an indication that he was different in psychological terms than the others we’ve studied,� said Levin.

THE WORD

Metro’s Monica Weymouth shares her take on the world of gossip

Stewart ‘deeply sorry’ about affair GETTY IMAGES

Remembering Sherman Hemsley Sherman Hemsley — who passed away Tuesday at the age of 74 — was the opposite of cranky George Jefferson, who he played on “The Jeffersons.” Prior to making it as a sitcom star, South Philly native Hemsley did the overnight shift at Philadelphia’s main post office at 30th Street and honed his craft at the Society Hill Playhouse. “I couldn’t believe that I could get paid to act,” Hemsley said last year during a chat plugging a date at the Cherry Hill comedy club Sarcasm. Hemsley was surprisingly humble. But what took folks really aback was what was on his iPod. “I love prog-rock,” Hemsley said. “I can’t wait for the new Yes album.” That album, unfortunately, won't drop until 2013, according to drummer Alan White. ED CONDRAN

We always blamed Kristen Stewart’s ever-present red carpet pout on being camera-shy. Maybe a weird rash. Possibly a Spanx situation. But we never suspected that the problem was Robert Pattinson, her much more photogenic boyfriend and “Twilight” co-star. It seems, however, that while Stewart’s been parading around Hollywood with Pattinson, she’s also been having a fling with Rupert Sanders, her married “Snow White and the Huntsman” director. Us Weekly has incriminating photographs of the two snuggled up in Los Angeles on July 17, just a few days before Stewart and Pattinson attended the Teen Choice Awards together. Witnesses tell Radar Online that Sanders, 41, and Stewart, 22, “were hardly able to keep their hands off one another” as they drove around L.A., stopping occasionally to make out in parking lots. Kristen, what do you have to say for yourself ? “I’m deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I’ve caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected,” she said in a statement released

Cast members of the hit sitcom “Modern Family” have filed a lawsuit against 20th Century Fox TV to void their contracts after tense negotiations for the show’s fourth season broke down,

Not to be outdone, Sanders issued his own apology shortly after Stewart. “I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family,” the director said in a statement. “My beautiful wife and heavenly children are all I have in this world. I love them with all my heart. I am praying that we can get through this together.” As for Sanders’ wife, Liberty Ross, we doubt she’s accepting the apology anytime soon. The British model seemed to learn about the affair along with everyone else yesterday, and proceeded to have a mini Twitter meltdown. Before deactivating her account, she followed @UsWeekly and tweeted quotes from Marilyn Monroe and Maya Angelou, then signed off with a simple “Wow” — the 2012 equivalent of waking up to the “Love Actually” DVD menu in a puddle of Ben & Jerry’s.

according to the Hollywood Reporter. Sofia Vergara, Ty Burrell, Julie Bowen, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet initially filed the lawsuit, while co-star Ed O’Neill added his name as a plaintiff as a show of solidarity. The actors have rejected an offer of $150,000 per episode for Season 4, with increases each year leading to $325,000 should the show reach Season 9. They’re reportedly looking for double that.

Rough start for Jackson and Kruger

Well, this is awkward.

Pattinson talks cheating Robert Pattinson obviously won’t be releasing a statement — he’ll let some pretty young blonde do the talking next week. So for now, all we’ve got is his April chat in Vanity Fair, where he conveniently discussed affairs. “There’s a thing I’ve never got: That is, why do people cheat? I can understand the impulse,” he said. “But not how you can keep two relationships going at the same time for long. I’m not the casual-affair kind of guy. If I choose to be with someone, it’s because I really want it. When I have a relationship, I’m 100 percent into it.”

Joshua Jackson and Diane Kruger have been dating happily for six years, but their relationship got off to a bumpy start, the “Fringe” star tells Us Weekly. “Our first date was a miserable one. I took her to an Italian restaurant, and there was some flower that was blooming. She was allergic to it so she sniffled and sneezed the entire time,” Jackson remembers. “And when I get nervous, you might have noticed I talk a lot. So I just chewed her ear off for an hour and a half. It was amazing. I’m surprised she ever called back.”

Community actor-vists

4

As photos emerged online Tuesday of Christian Bale visiting with victims of last week’s mass shooting at a Colorado screening of “The Dark Knight Rises,” we felt compelled to honor others in his profession who give back to their communities. 1. Mark Wahlberg is making headlines for his hilarious performance in “Ted,” but the actor is also known for his annual golf tournament, which raises money for at-risk inner-city kids. 2. Not only a hero on the big screen, “The Amazing SpiderMan” himself, Andrew Garfield, is an ambassador for the Worldwide Orphans Foundation.

2

3. Charlie Sheen has pledged to donate 1 percent of the profits he makes from his new show “Anger Management” to the USO, an organization devoted to lifting the spirits of U.S. troops and their families. (We also kinda just wanted to show this photo of him presenting Slash with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame from earlier this month.) 4. “Magic Mike” star Channing Tatum kept his clothes on and performed alongside his wife for the 2012 Revlon Concert, which raised millions of dollars to help save the rainforest.

3

5. “Hunger Games” star Josh Hutcherson won the Choice Movie Sci-Fi/Fantasy Actor award earlier this week at the Teen Choice Awards, but he also caught people’s attention with his contribution to the group Straight But Not Narrow, which promotes positive change among straight teens in the way they view gay peers. 6. Actress Charlize Theron just portrayed the evil witch in “Snow White and the Huntsman,” but she’s quite different in her role as the director of the Charlize Theron African Outreach Program, which helps to provide HIV/AIDS testing, education and more in South Africa. 7. What girl wouldn’t love a day at the spa? That’s why “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island” star Vanessa Hudgens lent a hand to teens from the Make-a-Wish Foundation who got a chance to relax and get treated to manicures. ESTHER PACHECO 1.

SUMMER HAIR

We’re obsessed with the romantic braided crown that stylist and Redken Creative Consultant Guido Palau created for the Spring ’12 Valentino show. With temperatures in the 90s, it’s the perfect time to sweep the hair off our sticky necks and into a dreamy updo. We headed to NYC’s Cutler/Redken Salons where stylist Jenny Balding gave us a step-by-step tutorial. Warning: You’ll need some French braiding skills and patience. Or better yet, find a girl friend who will come over and do it for you. TINA CHADHA

Tool of choice “Spray a dry shampoo — especially if you have fine hair — to your roots and mid-length to add texture to your locks and for some more grip,” says Balding. She likes Redken Powder Refresh ($8, www. redken.com).

5 Pro tips: 1. Start with dirty hair. 2. Ruffle up the braids and pull some pieces out a little.

Stylist Jenny Balding works her magic on Haley Sulka.

Balding’s instructions

Braid the front section. Start from your left ear and work your way across the forehead until you get to behind the right ear.

Divide your hair into three sections: the front, the crown and the back. The finer the hair, the thicker the sections need to be.

French braid the crown, braiding toward the right ear, and tie with a rubber band.

3

Once your front braid has reached the right side, connect it with the crown braid.

Braid them into the remaining hair. Make sure to braid right down to the very tip.

6

Wrap the braid going from the left to right around your crown and pin.

7

Use three pins on each side and one in the center to secure your braid.

8

As you go through, pull some pieces out at the root to make your braids chunkier. “The messier the braids, the cooler it’ll look,” says Balding.

quare Enix and Nintendo have always had one of those on-again, off-again romances. Back in the NES and SNES days, these two Japanese megacorporations walked arm-in-arm like teenaged lovers. Sony came between them, however, and the PS1 and PS2 eras saw Nintendo bereft with nary a “Final Fantasy� to call its own. Well, uncork the bubbly — your favorite celebrity couple is back. Square Enix is supporting Nintendo’s 3DS in a big way. Here are two just-released titles.

Though all three were renewed for next season, as of late “Communityâ€? has received little love from NBC, which fired the show’s creator, ordered only 13 episodes and pushed the show back to Fridays. “The reason that we did 13 episodes of that and a couple of our other shows is because we really wanted to get more comedies on the schedule ‌ which isn’t to say we couldn’t decide at some point to extend those seasons,â€? Greenblatt said. “I would love nothing more than ‘Community’ to have a following on Friday and to be able to continue it.â€?

Whites of our eyes “Our highly mobile eyes are put to good use in social signaling. It’s astonishing how much can be conveyed by a simple flick of the eyes.” Angelina’s leftward gaze is intriguing and complex. Eyebrows “The signals we give out using our eyes are emphasized by eyebrows.” Exceptions to averageness “If there are faces that are naturally better than average, they must have something extra, and it should be possible to find out what that something is.” (We can easily identify what part of Angelina’s face makes her exceptionally beautiful.) Femininity Angelia’s high cheekbones help make her face strikingly feminine. Healthy skin “Face scans reveal that people with more red in their face look healthier than people who have less red in their face.” Angelina’s face texture and color make her look radiant and healthy.

SCIENCE OF SEDUCTION Author David Perrett takes a deeper look at beauty and attraction Says personality and upbringing can influence what’s attractive

I

t’s simple to tell if a person is attractive, but what is it that makes someone so? Pointing out the traits that characterize beauty proves difficult, but David Perrett uses psychological studies and computer-generated faces to uncover the science of attraction in his book, “In Your Face.” “In the book I mentioned health, symmetry, sex typicality and youth,” Perrett says. “But I do spend most chapters showing how despite these universals, beauty is still very much in the eye of the beholder because of our unique upbringing, our unique friends, our unique experiences in love and so on. And each of these builds in our minds a unique sense of what’s attractive in faces.”

We’ve all marveled at the couple that could be siblings and gotten the heebie jeebies when Freudian theories emerge. Perrett’s book explains why we’re attracted to individuals who resemble our parents and pinpoints the traits that make or break beauty. He says that though we cannot change the face we’re born with, that face can make us who we are. “I think people’s future behavior is being shaped by their face,” Perrett says. “I’m a great believer in the feedback between the face and how the world treats us and therefore the creation of our own personality.” JOANIE FERGUSON letters@metro.us

DEALERSHIP

3 Cole Hamels potentially turned away extra money to stay with the Phillies. He admitted that fellow aces Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee helped twist his arm a bit.

Cole standard: Hamels stays loyal to roots Phillies ace inks $144 million extension Praises fans, winning culture Richest deal in club history Cole Hamels’ wife and son sat in the back. They were there to support the newest member of the millionaire aces club, which already includes Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee, after Hamels and the Phillies agreed on a six-year, $144 million contract extension. As soon as Hamels exited the stage, his 3-year-old son Caleb, wearing his dad’s No. 35 jersey, went racing toward him and shouted, “Hi Daddy!” Hamels scooped him up, slung him over his million-dollar arm and replied with a smile, “Did you have fun?” By signing the deal — the largest one the Phillies have doled out to a pitcher and second-largest in MLB — Hamels ensured he’ll be in red pinstripes through the 2018 season. There is a club option for 2019 with a no-trade clause. The homegrown ace could have waited and filed for free agency at the end of the season. Instead, Hamels chose to remain with the ballclub that drafted him in the first round

“I was on the phone with my dad a couple days ago and I mentioned to him that I never imagined that I’d ever be in this position, ever.” COLE HAMELS

Wins for Hamels since making his MLB debut with the Phils on May 12, 2006 — that ranks first among NL pitchers. of the 2002 draft. He gave countless reasons why he potentially passed on more money, most notably the desire to play at Citizens Bank Park. “You want to go out and

play for a reason and the reason is to win World Series, to play in front of sellout crowds, to play in front of a Phillie nation of fans everywhere that are showing up on the road, that are cheering you on,” he said. “Those are the reasons that we play this game and want to play it for as long as we possibly can, until they take the ball out of our hand and tell us we can’t.” The negotiations began before spring training. Neither side set a deadline because Hamels wanted to keep talks open. It took seven months, but they finally hashed it out. “The motto is the Fightin’ Phils, so you never count them out until the very end,” Hamels said. “I wanted to give the Phillies every opportunity. It’s really hard to leave a place where you had so many great memories. I really do feel this is the place that I do call home and I want to call home for a really long time.” MIKE GREGER

President tells Vick to slide Eagles QB Mike Vick got a direct order, a presidential one. President Barack Obama told Vick, via Nnamdi Asomugha, that he needs to slide. “We talked about football for about three or four minutes,” Asomugha said yesterday. “The one thing that stuck out: Tell Vick to slide.

ANALYSIS:

The Phillies’ payroll will be the most talked about topic in the coming days. The Phils have $93 million tied into four players — Cole Hamels, Cliff Lee, Roy Halladay, Ryan Howard — in 2013. That’s a lot of money for a team with the secondhighest payroll in baseball ($174 million on Opening Day), which means the Phils still may be sellers at the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. Hunter Pence, Shane Victorino and even Cliff Lee have surfaced in recent days as potential trade bait.

The Phillies are trying to stay below the $178 million luxury tax threshold, a number team president Dave Montgomery admitted they are “probably not� under. GM Ruben Amaro Jr. definitely has his “work cut out for him� — Montgomery’s words, not ours — in 2013, when he will most likely be forced to fill holes at third base, center field, right field, left field (Pence is arbitrationeligible and seeking $14 million) and in the bullpen. “We don't have an open wallet,� Amaro said. “It’s my job to try to put the pieces together in the right fashion.� So, will the Phillies be buyers or sellers Tuesday? Said Montgomery: “Someone asked me if we are buyers or sellers and my answer to that is one thing: ‘We’re trying to be improvers.’�

Would the Phils trade Lee again?

Both are cheap

“We’ve been fortunate to have the good fan support and we wanted to do the things that hopefully give our fans the belief that good times lie ahead as well,� Montgomery said. Hamels seemed to indicate that if he could play for free he would. “Money has never been the issue or reason why I get on that mound every day and try to win ball games,� he said. “I know it just comes with it, but ultimately I play because I purely enjoy the game and want to win, and this, I feel, is the best opportunity for me to win another championship.� To which Phillies GM Ruben Amaro replied, “You would have played for free?� Well, not exactly. Hamels fully intends to cash that record-setting paycheck. “I learned in economics there’s no such thing as a free lunch,� Hamels said.

EMPHYSEMA FLARE-UPS?

The art of

Taking A Statin Pill May Help.

the comeback The Fightin’ Phils are living up to their nickname with four straight comebacks:

Rollins is mobbed by Jonathan Papelbon and Juan Pierre after getting the game-winning hit yesterday for the Phils.

Phillies win again, refuse to give up on 2012 season Seven is the Phillies’ lucky number these days. When Jimmy Rollins came to the plate with two outs in the 10th inning, he had Milwaukee right where he wanted them. The game was tied 66 and Rollins stroked a gamewinning single to send the Phillies into hysterics again. That is four straight dramatic, come-from-behind wins — three of the walk-off variety — for the home nine. The final score in the last three victories: 7-6. Suddenly, the Phillies look like the team that captured five straight NL East crowns. “It shows we haven’t given up,” Chase Utley said. “I like

our chances moving forward.” Michael Schwimer (2-1) earned the win despite allowing an unearned run in the 10th. Erik Kratz, who hit a two-run homer Tuesday night to spark a six-run eighth-inning rally, delivered with a clutch double with John Mayberry Jr. on first base. Then, Carlos Ruiz stepped in as a pinch-hitter and smacked a sacrifice fly to tie it. “We were playing kind of rough at the end today and stayed with it and came back. That was good,” manager Charlie Manuel said. “We did enough to get by. Things are starting to work for us.” MIKE GREGER

Yesterday Jimmy Rollins delivers gamewinning RBI single to cap two-run 10th inning for 7-6 Phillies victory. It marked the team’s first three-game sweep of the season. Tuesday Down 6-1, Erik Kratz fuels sixrun eighth with two-run blast, followed by Carlos Ruiz’s three-run double and Hunter Pence’s RBI single. Phils beat Brewers, 7-6. Monday Ty Wigginton’s sacrifice fly completed a four-run, ninthinning rally to beat Brewers, 7-6. The Phils had been 0-42 when trailing after eight frames before that. Sunday Rollins’ RBI single, in the 12th inning, gives Phils 4-3 win over Giants. The win snapped a seven-game losing streak at the Bank.
