HAPPY BIRTHDAY on Monday to Ukee Washington, who'll wake up with the city (or, as he says, his "morning family") by celebrating his 54th on "Eyewitness News This Morning." The West Philly-born news vet's been at Channel 3 since 1986, first as a sports anchor, now as the anchorman for both "This Morning" and "Talk Philly." (You can also catch him on the CW.) Recently recovered from a left-hip replacement, Washington has a big year ahead of him, starting with a few more squats and lots more fabulous Fridays.
Tuesday, sister Kim Sledge sings 55. Wednesday, Flyers center Brayden Schenn slaps 21 and Eagles owner-turned-car dealer Norman Braman sells 80. Sunday, another Flyer, Wayne Simmonds, eyes 24.
