In a North Philadelphia neighborhood Tuesday, a black baseball cap sat perched on a fence post next to a large piece of plywood covered in scrawled messages. Most were variations on "We love you" or "We miss you. " Nearby, three candles flickered as a light rain fell, marking the spot where 50-year-old Kenny Butts was killed the night before. Community members near the overgrown lot at 25th and Ingersoll Streets said Butts, known to his friends as "Butter," had been a professional boxer, a bantamweight who went unbeaten for his first six fights.

BOSTON - The Flyers could move a step closer toward a franchise record for road wins in a season on Saturday, but the fact the game is in the afternoon doesn't work to their advantage. They meet the free-falling Boston Bruins at TD Garden at 1 p.m. In games that have started between 1 and 3 p.m. this season, the Flyers are 3-8-1. "Maybe it's because we usually take a nap at 1 o'clock," veteran right winger Jaromir Jagr joked after Friday's practice at Boston University.

A vandal lobbed black paint at a mural of former Philadelphia Mayor Frank Rizzo in the Italian Market over the weekend and sprayed "fascista" in red beneath him.   Police said they received a report on Saturday that the mural at 9th and Montrose streets had been hit and are investigating the incident. A large black splotch of paint hit directly over Rizzo's right eye, and paint splattered along the parking lot that the mural faces. On Sunday afternoon, the occasional passer-by stopped to take a picture of the defaced former mayor and police commissioner.

With the tardy arrival of spring, the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society had to present a lot of indoor sunshine Sunday to lure people from the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art inside to Van Pelt Auditorium. But the Dalí Quartet's Latin American program alternately glimmered and blazed. Longtime concertgoers might wonder whether Latino string quartets exist at all. Well, yes, though the beautifully prepared program was largely unfamiliar, except perhaps to jazz fans who know Paquito D'Rivera, represented by two short pieces.

PARX CASINO is always open. The racetrack across the parking lot will open early today - 10 a.m., probably even earlier if there is a long line. There might be lines outside then, and definitely inside all day. The Kentucky Derby winner is running at Parx. California Chrome, making his first start since finishing fourth in the June 7 Belmont Stakes, will be in post position No. 1 in the $1 million Pennsylvania Derby, scheduled for 5:40 as the finale of a broadcast on The Comcast Network (4:30 to 6 p.m.)

They're from different parts of the city and had nothing in common - except for their predawn Wednesday wake-up call: court warrant officers arresting them for failing to appear for jury duty. Actually, it was more than that. Not only did they ignore at least two calls for jury duty, they ignored a summons telling them to appear in court May 21 or be held in contempt. Yes, we're talking about scofflaws in Philadelphia's new Juror Scofflaw Court. Two of the three - Timothy Shissler, 42, of Frankford, and John Sparks, 56, of Brewerytown - pleaded guilty before unsmiling Common Pleas Court Judges John W. Herron and Jeffrey P. Minehart.

The Stotesbury cup Regatta, the largest high school rowing event, canceled all semifinal races Saturday, with finals scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. with the boys' freshman eight. Organizers made the decision to cancel the seminfinal events early Saturday morning, after Friday's rainfall led to potentially dangerous rowing conditions on the Schuylkill River. At 11 a.m., they announced their decision to continue with the finals races only. Friday's storm led to high water levels, increased speed, and debris in the water.

The maverick mystic Arvo Pärt occupies an increasingly unassailable but strangely hermetic place in the classical music world. Though the relative simplicity of Pärt's Salve Regina and Adam's Lament might seem to go with anything, the Mendelssohn Club basically gave two different concerts Sunday at Church of the Holy Trinity, with Pärt in the first half and Haydn's Missa in Tempore Belli in the second. The surprise in this collaboration with the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia under Alan Harler is that Haydn suffered by comparison, if only because Pärt is so much more earnest.

THERE WERE 45 college football games with a betting line this opening weekend. In only three of them was anyone favored by more than the 30 points that Notre Dame is laying against Temple. So you think the Owls would have been better off starting their season for the fifth straight time against FCS Villanova at the Linc? Locally, maybe. But from a national perspective, you know how many programs would want to be in South Bend and on NBC? Maybe the difference between playing Villanova and Notre Dame is the difference between Temple getting bowl eligible or not. Or perhaps it isn't.

Visitors to Center City can now get carriage rides to tour the historic area during rush hour under a pilot program in place until Labor Day. City ordinance previously banned carriages from taking passengers between 3:30 and 6 p.m. during the week, which some businesses said was a prime time for tourism. "In the summertime we've found the streets are not as busy, but the horse and carriages are forced back in the barn," said Michael Kates, vice president of operations for 76 Carriage Co. The pilot program will test whether lifting the ban will cause gridlock or other issues around Society Hill, Independence Mall, and Old City.

The union representing health care workers at Temple University Hospital has planned a protest outside the entrance of the medical facility on North Broad Street for 4 p.m. Sunday over an arbitration dispute. In a statement just issued, the hospital said the dispute is over its decision to appeal an arbitration decision requiring reinstatement of "a terminated employee who repeatedly sexually harassed a co-worker. " The hospital said the arbitrator had concluded that the employee should be reinstated without back pay or retroactive benefits even though she had "engaged in a pattern of conduct that cannot be tolerated in the workplace.

Trainer Naazim Richardson shouted down from the ring apron toward his fighter: "You're not in Europe anymore, baby. " The crowd, he said, will be behind West Philadelphia's Steve "U.S.S. " Cunningham on April 20 when he fights heavyweight Tyson Fury in a 12-round afternoon bout at Madison Square Garden. And Livvy Cunningham, Steve's wife, prays that Richardson is right. Too many times, Cunningham sat alone in European stadiums cheering for her husband as he fought European fighters.
