DA to city admins: We need more cash

Fizzled out. Underfunded programs could be cut, DA Seth Williams fears. Not budging. Funding has not increased in several years. Why not us? Other departments get money, Williams said. PAGE 02

PHILADELPHIA Tuesday, April 23, 2013


Underfunded programs could go up in smoke Strapped. Only Wayne County, Mich., pays its DA’s Office less per violent incident than Philadelphia. If the District Attorney’s Office receives the budget currently proposed by

Mayor Michael Nutter’s administration, incarceration alternatives like the Small Amounts of Marijuana program may soon go up in smoke, District Attorney Seth Williams testified yesterday before City Council. “Already I’ve directed my assistants to prepare for the end of the SAM program,” he said. “As of July 1, all cases will have to be

diverted to trial rooms.” In fact, the budget for Philadelphia’s chief prosecutor has flatlined, not even keeping up with the rate of inflation and failing to account for salary increases awarded to police and probation officers. “This is not how the mayor has treated other criminal justice agencies,” Williams said, running through a laundry

list of agencies that have received budget increases, including the police department, prisons and even the Office of Innovation and Technology, whose budget has ballooned by nearly 150 percent since 2008. “So this is not about a lack of money,” Williams said. “In years past, maybe it was. Now it is about values.” Williams said his office

has been key in pioneering money-saving tech reforms like electronic discovery filing. “But we, ourselves, may not be able to operate the system because our computers are out of warranty and the software is from the 1990s.”


In the news

Nutter wants Philly to host 2024 Games Mayor Michael A. Nutter sent a letter to the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) confirming the city’s commitment to working with the USOC to bid on the 2024 Olympic Games. The city also expressed its interest in the possibility of becoming the U.S. candidate dity and, ultimately, the host city. “The Philadelphia region has enthusiastically embraced the prospect of bidding on and hosting a future Olympic Games, and we look forward with great anticipation to the opportunity to work with the USOC on this project,” Nutter said in a release.

For sale: Home with ‘Love Letters’ mural Selling point. West Philly home with Steve Powers’ “Love Letters” mural can be had for $110K.

A priceless piece of art is in the discount bin. The three-story, West Philly row house draped in a Steve Powers “Love Letters” mural is up for sale. Asking price: $110,000. Powers used the home, at the corner at 50th and Market streets, as a canvas for one of 33 artworks that were strung together to form a love story. The complete saga is unveiled as the other artworks, splashed on homes stretching from 45th to 63rd streets along the El route, are revealed one by one. It was completed on Valentine’s Day 2010.

The building, which features a gutted groundlevel retail space and three apartment units, encompasses 1,348 square feet. Real estate agent Faith Boose said there are no guidelines for an owner to maintain or even keep the artwork. And she said that to this point, the art hasn’t been the main feature. “The price is the major selling point at this time,” Boose said.

Boston bombing suspect charged in hospital bed Suspect. A magistrate judge stood by as Tsarnaev was charged at the hospital. Federal prosecutors charged badly wounded Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev in his hospital bed yesterday with using a weapon of mass destruction, a charge that could result in the death penalty, officials said. “Although our investi-

gation is ongoing, today’s charges bring a successful end to a tragic week for the city of Boston, and for our country,” U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said in a statement. Tsarnaev, 19, was also charged with malicious destruction of property resulting in death. Tsarnaev, an ethnic Chechen college student suspected of carrying out the attacks with his older brother, was unable to speak after he was captured with throat injuries sustained during shootouts with police. The fact that he was

charged indicated the previously sedated defendant was communicative because the magistrate judge would have to be satisfied he was aware of the proceedings. Police previously declined to comment on media reports he was communicating with authorities in writing. “There have been widely published reports that he is [communicating silently]. I wouldn’t dispute that, but I don’t have any specific information on that myself,” Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis told CNN. REUTERS

One week

Pause at time of bombings The city of Boston paused at 2:50 p.m. yesterday to mark the moment a week ago when the two bombs made of pressure cookers and packed with nails and ball bearings tore through the crowd. Police said the suspects made enough additional bombs for them to believe that more attacks were planned. REUTERS

The case. Boston bomb prosecutor is known for tough record on crime As the top federal law enforcer in Massachusetts, U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz has taken heat for being tough to a fault and coming down too hard on some defendants. But as she builds a possible death penalty case against suspected bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the unflinching approach that earned her opponents in the past could become a legal asset for the biggest

case of her career, said attorneys who have faced off against her. “The criticism lately has been that they’ve overcharged some people and been overly harsh,” said Peter Elikann, a Boston defense attorney. “I don’t think that’s relevant for Tsarnaev because no one is going to accuse any prosecutor of making too big a deal out of this case.” REUTERS



Public gets Free TV with no monthly bills

Federal law makes TV network giants broadcast Free TV signals regionally in crystal clear digital picture in all 50 states allowing U.S. households to pull in Free TV with a sleek $49 micro antenna device engineered to pull in nothing but Free TV channels with no cable, satellite or internet connection and no monthly bills

Who Gets Free TV: Listed below are the Philadelphia area zip codes that can get Free over the air TV channels. If you find the first two digits of your zip code immediately call: 1-888-752-7147 PENNSYLVANIA - Today’s announcement by CompTek has the Free TV Hotlines ringing off the hook. That’s because Philadelphia area residents who find their zip code listed in today’s publication are getting Free TV channels thanks to an amazing razor-thin invention called Clear-Cast™. Philadelphia area residents who call the Toll Free Hotlines before the 48-hour order deadline to get Clear-Cast can pull in Free TV channels with crystal clear digital picture and no monthly bills. This announcement is being so widely advertised because a U.S. Federal law makes TV broadcasters transmit their signals in digital format, which allows everyone to receive these over-the-air digital signals for free with no monthly bills. Here’s how it works. Clear-Cast, the sleek micro antenna device with advanced technology links up directly to pull in the Free TV signals being broadcast in your area with crystal clear digital picture and no monthly bills. Clear-Cast was invented by a renowned NASA Space Technology Hall of Fame scientist who currently holds 23 U.S. Gov’t issued patents. For the past 20 years, he has specialized in developing antenna systems for NASA, Motorola, XM Satellite Radio and companies around the world. His latest patent-pending invention, ClearCast, is a sleek micro antenna device engineered to pull in the Free TV signals through advanced technology with no cable, satellite or internet connection and no monthly bills. “Clear-Cast is being released to the general public because we just don’t think people should keep paying for TV when they can get it for free,” said Conrad Miller, Manager of Operations at CompTek. “There’s never a monthly bill to pay and all the channels you get with Clear-Cast are absolutely free. So you see, Clear-Cast is not like cable or satellite. It was engineered to access solely the over-the-air signals that include all the top rated national and regional networks, like ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, PBS, CW and about 90% of the most watched TV shows like America’s Got Talent, NCIS, 60 Minutes, American Idol, The Big Bang Theory, The Bachelorette, Person of Interest, CSI, The Mentalist, Two and a Half Men, Sunday Night Football plus news, weather and more all for free with no monthly bills,” Miller said. “That’s why Clear-Cast is such a great alternative for everyone who is sick and tired of paying expensive cable and satellite bills every month,” he said. “People who get Clear-Cast will say it feels like getting an extra paycheck every month. You see, with Clear-Cast you’ll receive free over-theair broadcast channels with crystal clear digital picture, not the cable or satellite only channels. So being able to eliminate those channels puts all the money you were spending back in your pocket every month,” Miller said. And here’s the best part. The sleek micro antenna device called Clear-Cast is so technically advanced it pulls in even more of the channels being broadcast in your area for Free with

NNEVER PAY A BILL AGAIN: Pennsylvanians will be on the lookout for their postal carrier because thousands of Clear-Casts will soon be delivered to lucky Philadelphia area residents who beat the 48-hour order deadline and live in any of the zip code areas listed below. Everyone is getting Clear-Cast because it pulls in nothing but Free TV channels with no cable, satellite or internet connection and no monthly bills.

no monthly bills. That way you can channel surf through the favorite TV shows. The number of shows and channels you’ll get depends on where you live. People living in large metropolitan areas may get up to 53 static-free channels, while people in outlying areas will get less. That means even if you’re in a rural area that just pulls in NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX and PBS broadcasts there’s hundreds of shows each year to watch for free. Consumers report that the crystal clear picture quality with Clear-Cast is the best they’ve

ever seen. That’s because you get virtually all pure uncompressed signals direct from the broadcasters for free. Clear-Cast was engineered to link up directly like a huge outdoor directional antenna but in a lightweight, slim-line package. Its sturdy copper alloy and polymer construction will most likely far outlast your TV. It just couldn’t be any easier to get Free overthe-air digital TV shows with Clear-Cast. Simply plug it into your TV, place Clear-Cast on a window pane and run autoscan. It works on virtually any model TV and is easily hidden out of

sight behind a curtain or window treatment. Thousands of Philadelphia area residents are expected to call to get Clear-Cast because it just doesn’t make any sense to keep paying for TV when you can get hundreds of shows absolutely free. So, Philadelphia area residents lucky enough to find their zip code listed in today’s publication need to immediately call the Free TV Hotline before the 48-hour deadline to get ClearCast that pulls in Free TV with crystal clear digital picture. If lines are busy keep trying, all calls will be answered. N

How to get Free TV: Listed below are the Philadelphia area zip codes that can get Free TV channels with no monthly bills. If you find the first two digits of your zip code immediately call 1-888-752-7147 beginning at precisely 8:30am this morning. Today’s announcement photo above shows just a handful of the major over-the-air broadcast networks you can receive with Clear-Cast for free. It saves a ton of money by not picking up expensive cable only channels like ESPN so there’s never a monthly bill. This is all possible because a U.S. Federal Law makes TV broadcasters transmit their signals in digital format, which allows everyone to use Clear-Cast to pull in Free TV channels with no monthly bills. CompTek is giving every U.S. household a 50% off discount to help cover the cost of Clear-Cast. Clear-Cast, the sleek micro antenna device is a one-time purchase that plugs in to your TV to pull in Free TV channels in crystal clear digital picture with no monthly bills. Each Clear-Cast normally costs $98, but U.S. households who beat the 48-hour deadline are authorized to get a 50% off discount for each Clear-Cast and cover just $49 and shipping as long as they call the Free TV Hotline at 1-888-752-7147 before the deadline ends or online at Trademarks and programs are the property of their respective owners and are not affiliated with or endorsing Clear-Cast.

GEORGE CICCIARELLO-MAHER In his new book, “We Created Chavez: A People’s History of the Venezuelan Revolution,” Drexel political science professor George Cicciarello-Maher examines one of the most polarizing figures in modern Latin American politics.



How did you connect with the “people” your book references? I was living and teaching in Venezuela in 20062007, and my students were political organizers from across Venezuela who had come to study in Caracas. They provided intimate access to people that others might not be able to interview: radical organizers from across the country, former guerrillas, militia members and leaders of a variety of social movements that contributed to Hugo

Chavez’s rise to power. Chavez is a polarizing figure in Latin America. What did you make of that? Chavez was certainly a polarizing person, but social change rarely comes without polarization. In some senses it was this very question that drew me to study Venezuela: political science and other academic scholarship on the subject in the United States is dreadful, tending to simply echo common misconceptions

or impose a vision of U.S.-style democracy on Venezuela. What did you discover on the ground in your research about Chavez? What I found in practice was not a strongman, but an increasingly conscious and mobilized population ripe with social movements. Chavez played a major role in pushing this development forward. His absence will certainly be felt. Do you believe that

relations between the U.S. and Venezuela will improve under Nicolas Maduro, who assumed the presidency this month? Despite claiming to want improved relations with Venezuela, the Obama administration has refused to take the first step toward a thaw: recognizing Maduro. You cannot improve relations with a leader that you fail to even recognize.

Khloe Kardashian out on ‘X-Factor’

Khloe Kardashian has been booted off Fox’s “The X Factor,” while her co-host Mario Lopez will remain for the third season. “Khloe Kardashian will not be returning to co-host ‘The X Factor,’” the show’s producers said in a statement. “We really enjoyed working with her and wish her all the best in her future endeavors.” (Translation: Don’t let the door hit you on the way out, KK!) Lopez will join returning judges Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato, with at least one more judge yet to be announced. “I’m thrilled Mario is back for Season 3 of ‘The X Factor,’” said Cowell in a statement. “Hosting


Twitter feed We’re checking in with some of Hollywood’s biggest names to see what they’ve been up to — in their own words, in 140 characters or fewer. Today, Olivia Wilde is only a little mad at Twitter, Dana Delany doesn’t feel like getting up, Sarah Silverman is an unhappy constituent and Jason Mraz is bad with details. @oliviawilde: The only thing I resent twitter for is ruining the word “twitterpated” which *was* a solid go-to in my daily dialogue. @DanaDelany: I think my fate is to write my life story in bed. Like Louise Brooks & Proust. @SarahKSilverman: Dear House of Representatives, Who exactly are you representing? @jason_mraz: Just invited friends over for dinner but forgot to add, “Friday.” Apologies to those who came over to a dark house.

Reese speaks out on arrest

Dorothy Robinson’s take on the world of gossip a live show and keeping the judges — especially Demi — in line, is not an easy job, but Mario is a pro and we are glad he’s coming back.” Lopez, you sly, welloiled, muscular fox.

DOROTHY ROBINSON @dorothyatmetro

Bynes’ behavior explained So what’s the source of Amanda Bynes’ latest spate of bizarre antics during her stay in New York City? “Amanda’s increasingly disturbing behavior is related to the fact that she smokes pot,” a source claims to Radar Online. “It makes her more paranoid and instead of mellowing


her out, it does the opposite. Amanda begins talking faster and just can’t seem to sit still.” Bynes was most recently photographed walking the NYC streets with a massive scarf obscuring her face and head. Pot? Is that what they’re calling meth these days? I don’t know. I’m old.


Lachey to raise son in Ohio No disrespect to L.A., but Nick Lachey doesn’t think it’s any place to raise a child — at least not his 7-month-old son, Camden. Which is why he and wife Vanessa Minnillo are packing up and heading to Ohio, he


tells Access Hollywood. “I loved growing up in Cincinnati, where I’m from. My brother’s there, his kids are there, my parents are there,” Lachey says. “I want to try to give him the most normal childhood he can have.”

With the mug shot from her arrest in Atlanta for disorderly conduct making the rounds, Reese Witherspoon is speaking out about the headlinemaking incident. “Out of respect for the ongoing legal situation, I cannot comment on everything that is being reported right now,” Witherspoon says in a statement. “But I do want to say I clearly had one drink too many and I am deeply embarrassed about the things I said. It was definitely a scary situation and I was frightened for my husband, but that is no excuse. I was disrespectful to the officer who was just doing his job. I have nothing but respect for the police and I’m very sorry for my behavior.” Witherspoon reportedly got into an argument with an officer (she infamously played the “Don’t you know who I am?” card) after husband Jim Toth was pulled over on suspicion of driving while intoxicated. Both were arrested and briefly jailed.


More details on Ozzy

Ozzy Osbourne may have come clean about his recent battles with drugs and alcohol, but that doesn’t mean the public gesture was enough to patch things up with wife Sharon Osbourne, according to the Daily Star. “She just wants out at this point,” a source says. “Ozzy seems to think he can win her back, but Sharon isn’t so sure as she’s been living in a private hell.” Exactly what kind of a private hell are we talking about here? “He kept accusing Sharon of trying to kill him. It was heartbreaking for her,” the source says. “He was living in an imaginary

world for most of the time and seeing a lot of things that weren’t even there. He was running around in the same clothes all

the time, not washing.” Come on. None of this can be new for Sharon, right? She must be used to this by this point.

He’s produced or played on records for everyone from Adele to Common and he’s an integral part of The Roots’ sound on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.” “It’s very rare to find a band on the road that doesn’t have a musician from the Philly area,” Poyser says. “I’m proud to be a part of that.” Poyser’s “friends” for the “Sittin’ In” session include ace drummer Steve McKie, along with whoever else is in town for the night.

CHRISTA PARRAVANI In her attempts to understand her twin sister’s downward spiral, the author follows in her footsteps, losing her marriage and nearly her life.

WITH OR WITHOUT HER In the gripping memoir “Her,” Christa Parravani describes what it was like to grow up alongside — then lose to a drug overdose — her identical twin. And she begins with a startling statistic: After a twin dies, the surviving twin’s life is immediately at risk. In her attempts to understand her sister’s downward spiral (which starts by eating one of her pills, found wedged in a crack on the kitchen floor) she follows in her footsteps, losing her marriage and nearly her life.

STYLE Tuesday, April 23, 2013


Wear your heart on your T-shirt sleeve Style and substance. “Boston Love” T-shirts are a fashionable way to show you care.

After the attack on the Boston Marathon last Monday, people across the nation were left with questions. How can we help? How can we begin to ease the pain caused by an event that we still do not — and may never — understand? This drove to help mobilize business and individuals alike to set up foundations and donate what they could. One such business is Ctrl Alt Design, a Bos-

ton-based creative agency that specializes in graphic design. Robert McElaney — Ctrl Alt Design’s creative director — designed an image that became the logo for their line of “Boston Love” T-shirts, sold on for a limited time only. The screen-printed tees feature a simple yet evocative image of a large red heart, the top arcs of which form Boston’s skyline. All proceeds of the shirts’ sales go directly to One Fund Boston, a nonprofit organization set up by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Tom Menino to benefit those most affected by the attack. “When the tragedy

struck, witnessing all the pain and confusion, I felt compelled to create something to convey not only strength, but also compassion, something to bring people together,” said McElaney. As of 5 p.m. on Sunday, they’d sold 267 shirts, raising roughly $2,400. It’s an impressive figure that speaks to the power of community in Boston, considering they’d begun selling the shirts on their site just two days earlier. The response has been so positive that they’ve extended the campaign through May 1. “We had a lot of people asking to make sure they had the option through the week, until they get paid,” McElaney said. “Which

“Boston Love” tees come in light blue, navy or black. / PROVIDED

somewhat blows my mind. [Living] paycheck to paycheck and still wanting to give? ... Boston is awesome.” This positive response reflects the anthem the city has adopted: Boston Strong. “I moved to Boston roughly 15 years ago. I’ve been lucky enough to meet a wide range of friends and acquaintanc-

es,” said McElaney. “Over time, some have moved out of state, some out of the country. When a tragedy like this strikes, they all have responded with care, strength and support. That’s what Boston Strong means to me.”

Inside Ke$ha’s makeup bag



The singer speaks on makeup, music and her new MTV documentary.

ROLLING IN GLITTER AND SLEEPING IN EYESHADOW You’re about to go on tour with Pitbull. How do you keep on top of your beauty regimen on the road? I could go for two days without a shower, but I always take care of my skin and my face. The rest of my life is chaos, but I’m pretty religious about that. I cleanse and moisturize all the time because I’m prone to having dry skin. I’ve also started putting a tiny, pea-size amount of retinol in my night cream. It supposedly helps your skin exfoliate constantly. In your song “TiK ToK,” you sing about brushing your teeth with a bottle of Jack. Are you the type to fall asleep with your makeup on? Whiskey isn’t necessarily my first choice when it comes to dental hygiene. I always wash my face. Sometimes I just leave the eyes because I like my

makeup better the next morning, it looks naturally wild. It creates this sexy, smoky eye that I don’t know how to create myself. It looks great.

er, Bumble and Bumble Mending Conditioner or Moroccan Oil. When I don’t have someone prodding my head, I tie it up in a messy bun.

Speaking of eyes, you seem to have a thing for glitter. I cover myself in glitter! I pour it on the ground, lay in it and roll around. Then my glitter roadie sprinkles it all over me. His job is to make sure every inch of my body is covered.

You recently wrapped filming your MTV documentary, “Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life.” Did you keep on a full face of makeup throughout? You’ll see me with no makeup, no hair [done], no nothing. I’m running around without a bra on, looking so disheveled.

Is he a makeup artist? No, he just has a beard.

Children don’t have enough life experience to put tragedies in context. / THINKSTOCK IMAGES

Talking to kids about terrorism One week after the Boston Marathon bombings, the healing is only just beginning for many families dealing with the less tangible injuries of psychological trauma. Metro asked Dr. Kate Roberts, a Massachusetts-based child psychologist and parenting coach at Kate Roberts & Associates, how parents should handle psychological injuries following such terrifying ordeals. “Children directly affected will have symptoms of acute trauma reaction — things like not being able to stop thinking about the event,” she says. “Their mind jumps back on images even if they’re playing or busy doing something. They experience troubling,


Counseling can help Dr. Roberts says parents shouldn’t err on the side of caution. “Engage the child in counseling — the earintrusive thoughts. Noises and the unexpected can be especially startling.” Parents might share similar symptoms, which can also include sadness and mood changes. But for children, traumatic events are a very new experience: “There’s a depersonalization,” says Dr. Roberts. “Their world is shaken and

lier, the better. Family counseling is important so that parents can be there and understand the healthy coping mechanism the child adopts and then reinforce it.” they don’t have enough life experience to put it into context.” The endless media loop covering events like Boston and Sandy Hook can be harrowing, particularly to young minds. To support a child’s healing process, Dr. Roberts advises parents to start a dialogue and be patient.

How parents should handle psychological injuries following terrifying ordeals. “Ask them how they feel, but don’t push it if they are reluctant to talk,” she says. “If your child is exhibiting signs of fear — perhaps they’re reluctant to go to the playground — don’t force them. Reintroduce children to normal activities incrementally and only fully engage when they are ready.” Parents are often eager to see improvement in their child’s behavior and emphasize positive signals, while ignoring negative ones. “In due time more normal activity will ensue,” Dr. Roberts says, “but initially there’s not a lot of



Riverboats refining big-ship perks Destinations. Here’s how you can travel to multiple destinations — without having to lug your suitcase. Ocean cruising has its perks. Tropical destinations, all-you-can-eat buffets, water slides, bowling, free booze: It’s a $30 billion-dollar business meant to cater to every whim. But sometimes the excessiveness of ocean cruising can overwhelm. What if you want to experience the joys of traveling by sea without thousands of people crammed alongside you — without paying extra for excursions or having to adhere to a rigid schedule while visiting increasingly homogenized ports of call? Riverboat cruising plucks the aspects that make ocean cruising so attractive — the ability to hit multiple destinations without unpacking; the collegial atmosphere on board; an international, knowledgeable staff; a cosmopolitan experience — while being more refined and smaller than their bigwhite-boat counterparts. As the name implies, riverboat cruising uses smaller vessels that stick mainly to rivers, mostly in Europe

but also in Asia and the South Pacific, the Mediterranean and Northern Africa, and even Antarctica. “Most of our guests are seasoned world travelers for whom the destination is still the main attraction. For them, it’s not about all-night buffets or skating rinks or other novelties you find aboard big cruise ships — it’s about the discovery,” says Kevin Wallace, COO of Vantage Deluxe World Travel, a premiere riverboat cruising company. “You unpack once, then sail right into the heart of ports great and small, where sightseeing and intercultural activities are always included.” Smaller boats mean you can slip into smaller ports of call — you usually just walk off the boat and into the center of town. But riverboat companies aren’t naive. They include the perks Americans know and love: full-service cocktail lounges with live entertainment, Internet cafes, excursions and, yes, even all-you-can-eat breakfast and lunch buffets (as well as a formal sit-down dinner every night). Wallace is celebrating the launch of the latest addition to their fleet, the River Splendor. The new vessel has a busy year ahead: After its March christening in Antwerp, Belgium, it will spend this year cruising the Rhine, Main and Danube

rivers between Amsterdam and the Black Sea on Vantage’s most popular package, the Majestic Rivers of Europe: Castles, Cathedrals and Fairytales. It will also be part of Vantage’s Gateway to the Black Sea itinerary that takes travelers from Budapest along the Danube all the way to the Black Sea resort of Constanta, Romania. So, with these trips, instead of onboard bowling you’ll just have to enjoy a home-hosted lunch with a family in Croatia instead. In lieu of a Broadway musical at night, you’ll have to settle for an exclusive classical concert at the Kursalon in Vienna. Sounds like a pretty good trade-off, no?

CAMP GUIDE Tuesday, April 23, 2013


Philly summer camp guide Roundup. Let your children discover themselves this summer. Camp is supposed to be exciting and filled with discovery and adventure. Kids should be learning about themselves as they learn more about the things that interest them. Thankfully, Philadelphia has a day camp for nearly every interest, hobby and talent. So while the grown-ups continue their regular old work schedule, youngsters can embrace summer vacation.

Discovery Camp

Young Journalists Summer Camp

research topics, conduct interviews and present the information through text, audio and video. June 24-July 5 and Aug. 5-16 $1,200-$1,350 per course Hamilton Public Media Common at WHYY 150 N. 6th St.

Kids also do “Fiddler on the Roof” at the Young Performers Theater Camp.

The cost of camp Camp can be pricey, but many programs have scholarships available to help with the cost. Others offer a week-by-

week option rather than full-term enrollment. Some even have a bulkpurchase discount. Be sure to check a camp’s website for alternate payment options.

Camp can brush away the ‘mental cobwebs’

Summer. Education camps help keep kids sharp for the coming school year.

Even for those ultra-curious kids who love soaking up knowledge, sitting in the classroom can be a chore. This summer, enroll your kids in camp programs designed to take education away from the blackboard — and make it fun. “Camps can provide the opportunity to learn new skills and knowledge, or to help maintain and strengthen the skills and knowledge [children] already have,� says Rhonda Geyer, director of noncredit programs at Temple University. Many educational camps, like Temple’s Summer Education Camp programs at the Ambler campus, are organized into a series of one-week sessions so campers can sample a variety of topics — both those they’ve already had some exposure to and others that will let them explore something new. “You want to find topics that will be fun, interesting and educational,� Geyer says. Camp is not summer school, though, so “the program should also pro-

vide recreation and other downtime, so kids can have some fun.� She adds: “It is summertime, after all.� At Temple, programs range from creative courses in drawing, cartooning and writing to computerbased technical challenges. Some combine both, like website design and robotics. Kids who prefer being outdoors can learn geocaching or study wildlife. Students who need a boost maintaining or strengthening basic skills in math or reading and writing also have access to camps that emphasize fun. Temple offers the Jumpstart! series, which helps kids through individual and group activities. It’s structured with the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment in mind. “Practicing learning skills in a camp-like environment can be fun and also help students return to school without the ‘mental cobwebs’ that sometimes collect over the summer,� Geyer says. “Hopefully they will have a new positive perspective concerning their own skill strengths, abilities and interests.�


Kids at Temple University Camps stay engaged in intellectual pursuits. / TEMPLE UNIVERSITY Advice

What should you look for in a camp you’re considering? •

The instructors should be competent and qualiďŹ ed; often they are teachers in local school districts.


The sta-to-camper ratio should be low: It’s around 1:10 in most Temple programs.


The facilities: Camps held on college campuses beneďŹ t from stateof-the-art computer labs, air-conditioned classrooms and good sports facilities.

LETTERS AND GAMES Tuesday, April 23, 2013



Taurus | April 21 - May 21. People whose work you oversee will likely require some skillful management. Their production could suffer.

Leo | July 23 - Aug. 22. If you hope to really get things done, you’ll have to be industrious. If you’re neglectful, matters will only get worse.

Gemini | May 22 - June 20. Taking a risk on an unpredictable situation could be an exercise in futility. This might be one of those days when even sure things are difficult. Cancer | June 21 - July 22. Rather than respond in kind, make an effort to be affectionate with your special someone.

Scorpio | Oct. 23 - Nov. 21. If you feel impelled to do something for another, do it out of the goodness of your heart.

Aquarius | Jan. 21 Feb 18. Don’t get into a situation similar to one that has caused you all kinds of problems in the past.

Virgo | Aug. 23 - Sept. 22. If your credit cards are too accessible, there is a strong possibility that you will waste your money on extravagances.

Sagittarius | Nov. 22 Dec. 21. Watch out, because there’s a strong possibility you might spend funds that will be needed in the future. Don’t opt for instant gratification.

Pisces | Feb. 19 - March 20. Just because you know the other party well is no reason to ignore the details in a joint agreement. Leave no reason for problems to develop down the line.

Libra | Sept. 23 - Oct. 22. Should you have to deal with a surly, impossible to please individual, don’t blame yourself. You didn’t fail, he or she did.

Capricorn | Dec. 22 - Jan 20. Be mindful of whom you talk to. Don’t squander all your attention on a hot shot who doesn’t give a hoot.

Aries | March 21 - April 20. Your associates will not be manipulated if they don’t like the way you want to handle a project. BERNICE BEDE OSOL

Some expert! Re: “Don’t frack New York” (Metro, April 19-21) Mark Ruffalo, actor and activist, who was born in Wisconsin and lives Los Angeles, has undertaken to save New York from the horrors of hydrologic fracturing. He recites a litany of ecological disasters which it supposedly causes without citing any evidence. He then invokes some so-called experts to advocate largescale development of alternative energy sources without explaining how they would work. The trouble is, they won’t work. His so called experts may have mastered the intricacies of political correctness, but they do not understand Ohm’s Law.

Doug Collins did something unprecedented in his final few months as coach of the Sixers. He rendered his status as a Philadelphia sports hero obsolete. Never again will he be the gritty overachiever who cared so much about winning. Now and forever, he will be the man whose raging ego ruined his legacy. After a week of shameless public lies about his

intentions, Collins finally stepped down in one final flurry of self-serving bravado. He prefaced his tribute to himself by saying he had been plotting with his bosses a dignified goodbye, making his nauseating exit yet another spectacular failure in this disgraceful season. In fact, it is impossible to imagine a less dignified send-off than the one he gave himself. If there were any remaining doubts about his total disconnection from the fans (remember, last month he advised them to pray for Andrew Bynum), they disappeared during his final news conference. At one point, he had the audacity to blubber about his loving relationship with the fans, after stonewalling their questions for months. We have learned — from him, no less — that he decided to leave last Christmas. His final words to the city included a detailed recitation of his rÊsumÊ, conveniently omitting the fact that he was actually a loser here with a 110-120 record. He also emphasized his amazing kinship with his players, none of

“Collins’ nauseating exit was another spectacular failure in this disgraceful season.�

whom he thought highly enough of to confide in his plans to leave. And he actually said he was “always a winner, never a champion.� Always a winner? Was he a winner when he publicly attacked his players for “not breaking a sweat� after one awful loss? Was he a winner when he berated reporter after reporter for asking valid questions about the Bynum disaster? Is he a winner now, with his team in far worse shape than when he got here? Collins thinks he can bamboozle the fans with bluster about his playing days here, about his commitment to the job and his love for Philadelphia. If he actually did love our city, he wouldn’t have spent the final months here insulting the fans with his public tantrums. It is impossible for a sports hero in Philly to lose that designation. Allen Iverson is a national embarrassment, but he still receives standing ovations every time he returns. Lenny Dykstra is in prison, and fans still speak fondly of him. Collins managed to soil his legacy in a way even those two pathetic cases didn’t. In the end, he didn’t respect the fans. Ultimately, he cared only about himself. He left with no class and with no dignity.

As the Phillies continue to flounder below .500, a fascinating debate is emerging about whom to blame more for their failures: GM Ruben Amaro Jr. or manager Charlie Manuel. The correct answer is Manuel — by a wide margin. Now, I understand Manuel won the World Series here in 2008, while Amaro was just a frontoffice assistant, so the folksy skipper still holds the support of a majority of the fans. Philadelphia never stops loving a champion. Just ask the 1973-75 Flyers. But Manuel is the bigger problem, as he proved again with some abominable strategy last week. On successive nights late in tie games, Manuel placed the team’s fate in the hands of relievers Jeremy Horst and Phillippe Aumont. In both cases, the better choices — Mike Adams and Jonathan Papelbon, among others — sat in the bullpen until it was too late. Manuel’s explanations for these obvious mistakes were totally illogical. He said he was “getting concerned� about how much Adams

He said it

“The folksy skipper holds the support of a majority of the fans. Philadelphia never stops loving a champion.� was being used, although the setup specialist had pitched exactly six innings in the previous two weeks. Papelbon is used only in save situations, then he entered a game two nights later with the Phillies one run behind

and holding a four-run lead on Sunday. Amaro did his job. He provided Manuel with two of the best late-inning relievers in baseball, but Adams and Papelbon can fill their roles only if the manager uses them. Manuel should have been fired a year ago, after his 102-win team lost in the first round of the playoffs because of strategic blunders. If you really want to blame Amaro, rip him because he hasn’t had the courage to get rid of his beloved — and overrated — manager.


NFL expects Eagles to stink There was no press release, but the NFL made a bold statement about the 2013 Eagles: They stink. This appraisal was hidden in the new schedule, which has jarred the Birds back to their Not-ReadyFor-Prime-Time days before Andy Reid. In the first season under Chip Kelly, the Eagles are slated to play only two night games. What the NFL is saying is obvious. The debut of Kelly and his new brand of football is worthy of attention; hence, the Monday night opener. Unintentionally, the NFL appears to have done Kelly a huge favor. Facing a still-gimpy Robert Griffin III in the opener is a gift, followed by winnable games against the Chargers and Chiefs. Is it ridiculous to think the Birds could be 3-0 on Sept. 22? Can you imagine how much that start will help Kelly’s players to believe in the new system? Here’s my first prediction of the Chip Kelly era: The Eagles will not stink in 2013. ANGELO CATALDI

The Phillies outfielder dishes on favorite hobbies, sneakers and other off-the-field passions.

HANGIN’ WITH DOM BROWN Vance Worley was a good friend of yours. He had a bunch of hobbies. Did he encourage you to do the same? One thing he had was a shoe collection and I have a shoe collection. It’s not on the Vance Worley level. But I have some cool shoes. What’s your favorite? I love the Jordan 11. I’ve had a pair since they came out in 2010. I haven’t worn them since. They’re just hanging up.


Always hitting

“I have some great hobbies that help me get away, but I’ll tell you what — I’m always thinking about hitting.” Jam.” Those shoes are worth a lot of money. I’ll put some of my shoes in consignment shops.

What makes them special? They’re patent leather shoes. They call them the “Space Jam” shoes. Those were the type of shoes he wore in the movie “Space

What else relaxes you? Restaurants. They’re some great restaurants in this town. I was about to say girls. But I’ve been talking to somebody who has been around for years. But yeah, I like good places to eat.

If you don’t get on base, good luck being productive. The team’s table-setters have unbelievably low OBPs. Jimmy Rollins has a

paltry OBP of .294 and Ben Revere’s OBP is .253, and the team OBP is .301. “We have to work the count better,” Revere said. ED CONDRAN

What do you do at home for fun in the offseason that you haven’t done here yet? Fishing. I hear there are some good places here, but I’m a freshwater guy. I love fishing for bass. That helps relax me. Do you feel more comfortable this time around since it appears that you won’t be benched if you have some bad games? Probably. The mind works on its own. I don’t think about it, but maybe I do [subconsciously]. I want to do as well as I can, but if I have a rough game, it helps to know the next day I’ll be out there trying to help the team win.

ith the uncertainty in the U.S. stock market and global economies, you’ve probably been hearing a lot about the idea of adding physical gold and silver to your investment portfolio, especially to your existing IRA or a 401(k) from a previous employer. But how do you go about transferring a portion of your IRA or rolling over an old 401(k) into actual physical gold and silver coins and bars? That’s where American Bullion comes in. “It’s actually a very simple and rather quick process, and we’ve helped thousands of people roll over or transfer their retirement accounts into precious metals,” explained Jon Nelson, a spokesperson with American Bullion. “We have a safe and simple in-house system in place that’s hassle-free and 100 percent tax-free.” Nelson also noted to not be discouraged or surprised if your financial advisor tries to steer you

away from owning physical gold or has never recommended it. “Typically, advisors don’t earn ongoing commissions when you invest in physical precious metals,” said Nelson. “Our clients often comment on how safe they feel now and how easy it was to become an owner of gold,” said American Bullion’s Nelson. “After all, gold has been preserving wealth for centuries, and whether
