Amber Hellesten had the small knife in her pocket that frigid night in South Philadelphia. Had it close. She was 15 and said she carried the knife because she was afraid. Afraid from years of abuse. Afraid of the men who beat her mother. Afraid of the man who attacked her when she was 13. She'd see that man outside the drug clinic some mornings on her walks to school. She didn't know Azim Chaplin. He was 14 and walking down Snyder Avenue with two friends last February. Azim and his friends followed Amber and her friend for blocks, taunting them with gibes over their clothing and sneakers and throwing ice balls and garbage.

Amid feelings of grief and despair, students in the Deptford school system expressed their anger yesterday over the killing of 12-year-old Kim Marie Anderson, who police say was stabbed to death this week by one of their classmates. Counselors at the Monongahela Junior High School - where the youth accused of the slaying, Kenneth Houseknecht, is a student - told students to purse their lips and not talk with reporters during a day marked by tension, anger and disturbing quiet. Since Tuesday, the brutal killing was the dominant subject in the buzzing hallways of three local schools - Monongahela, Deptford Township High School and the Lake Tract School, where Anderson, known to her friends as Kimberly, was a student.

These are strange times indeed, folks, in the celebrity game. The worst publicity has now become the best kind of publicity you can get. Every time this month, for instance, that TMZ sent out a new gossip bulletin on Lindsay Lohan was a red-letter day for Lifetime. It represented another quarter-million viewers for the Liz Taylor biopic Lohan is currently shooting for the channel. Or take Charlie Sheen. After one of the most depraved runs of misbehavior by a major performer ever, he returns in a new sitcom to rapt curiosity and surprising good will.

His short fuse always seems to be lit anyway, so it came as no surprise when James Toney, walking time bomb, exploded two days before his title defense tonight against "Prince" Charles Williams (HBO, 10 o'clock) at the MGM Grand. As is his custom, Toney, the International Boxing Federation's super- middleweight champion, arrived for Wednesday's final prefight press conference seething with anger over some real or imagined slight. An hour or so later, when he was asked to pose for publicity photos with Williams, Toney began screaming profanities and lunging at Williams.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Monday's announcement of NCAA sanctions against the Penn State football program was met with bewilderment and anger by a large cross-section of current and former players. But nothing seemed to bewilder and anger former Nittany Lions more than the disclosure that all of Joe Paterno's 111 wins over a 14-year period from 1998 through 2011 were vacated, meaning they won't count in the NCAA record book. Adam Taliaferro, the South Jersey native who was almost paralyzed after being involved in a devastating hit in a 2000 game at Ohio State but made an inspiring recovery, couldn't control his disbelief on Twitter only a few hours after the NCAA delivered its penalties for the actions of university officials in the Jerry Sandusky scandal.

DEAR ABBY: I am the mother of four. My children are wonderful, but they really don't listen. Instead of sitting down and talking to them, I scream and call them names. Then, after they go to sleep, I feel extremely guilty. My 12-year-old girl struggles in school. I have tried to be calm and help her. But I become easily frustrated and give up. Then I start to scream and tell her she'll never get it. I'm afraid I am damaging my child in the long run. How can I control my anger so I can help her succeed?

In this week's Greek elections, the far-right, ultranationalist Golden Dawn party, whose members perform Nazi salutes at rallies, got 7 percent of the vote and entered Parliament for the first time. Its leader told journalists to stand upon his arrival at a news conference and ejected those who did not. A sick joke, you say. What's 7 percent? But Golden Dawn's gains are a symbol of a protest vote that fed extremes in Greece and decimated centrist parties, making it impossible to form a government in a country on the edge of economic collapse.

Under a steady rain Sunday, Judy and Chuck Miller took up spots that have often been occupied by child-abuse victim advocates: the steps of the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul. Judy Miller leads the Delaware branch of the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP), a group that hosted regular protests after the 2011 grand jury report about clergy sex-abuse in Philadelphia. Her return Sunday was prompted by last week's Superior Court ruling that overturned the conviction of Msgr.

Fahrenheit 9/11 made me angrier than any movie I've ever seen. It was a good anger, hard, clean and righteous, and I enjoyed it so much that I went back three days later to experience it again. Took two of my sons and two of their friends so they could become angry, too. It's not that I was unaware the movie is less documentary than propaganda. It's not that I buy its conspiracy theories tying the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq to Bush cronies' thirst for oil. It is, rather, that the movie brings us face to face with things essential and disturbing about the President, his people and his war. Things like human cost, as in Lila Lipscomb, an erstwhile proud military mother who is literally bent double by grief after losing her son to a war whose righteousness she had not thought to question.

I HAVE NO PROBLEM with anger. Anger is my go-to emotion - and it's how plenty of people react to feeling mistreated. So I wasn't surprised when things got heated at a town-hall meeting about tensions between cops and the community. The name of the forum at the Catalyst for Change Church, at 38th and Baring streets, last week was "Philly After Ferguson. " But, as someone pointed out, tensions between city residents and police way predate the tragic moment when a white cop killed an unarmed black man in Ferguson, Mo., last year.

Some small side streets in South Philadelphia still looked Sunday as if they could have been scenes from Alaska or the Arctic. Residents complained that the city had cleared bigger streets like Broad, Chestnut and Spring Garden - but that smaller streets had been untouched. In South Philadelphia, snow was piled a couple of feet deep on streets like Percy, Darien, Mildred, and Beulah, between 6th and 10th streets. On Ritner, a Mercedes-Benz was mired in snow, blocking in neighbors who said they couldn't get to work.

I walked into a bar-restaurant on Broad Street on New Year's Day looking for an old friend and instead I found our new mayor sitting by himself, surrounded by people who didn't recognize him and had never heard his name. Jim Kenney looked perfectly at ease in his anonymity at a place called Bliss. He sat at the elbow on the far end of the bar that faced the floor-to-ceiling windows along Broad Street and framed the passing string bands and fancy brigades like a huge-TV/video-screen tuned to the Mummers Channel.

DEAR ABBY: My 15-year old daughter, "Jenny," has a best friend, "Carly," she stays with when we're out of town. My husband and I are planning a three-day trip at the end of the month. Jenny has already asked Carly if she can stay, and of course, the answer was yes. This morning Jenny got an invitation to another friend's birthday party the Saturday of the weekend we'll be away. Although the birthday girl knows Carly, Carly was not invited. I told Jenny it would be very rude for her to leave Carly's house to attend a sleepover party that her friend wasn't invited to. My husband agrees, but won't verbally back me up. He says, "I don't want to get in the middle.

MAYBE FRANK Rizzo could've sorted this out. Because even Rizzo, the hard-nosed Philadelphia police commissioner-turned-mayor, saw his son-in-law Joseph Vito Mastronardo Jr. for what he was: a good man. Maybe Rizzo could have explained to the prosecutors and the judge that "Joe Vito" was actually a kindhearted genius and a compassionate workaholic who was generous to a fault - even if he made a living as an unrepentant sports bookmaker....

Wives and mothers beaten by police on Parliament Square. Seamstresses and shop workers carted off to jail. Women, wealthy and working-class alike, condemned by the government and made mockery of in the press for simply insisting they deserved the right to vote. "These things all really did happen," Carey Mulligan is saying, as though, even now, a century after the events depicted in Suffragette , she senses there still are disbelievers out there. Set in London in the years before World War I, Suffragette - playing now at the Ritz Five - follows Mulligan's Maud Watts, a laundry worker, a wife, a mother, who experiences a political awakening and becomes part of a group of female activists fighting, quite literally, for the chance to cast a vote.

LANDOVER, Md. - There is almost nothing you can say at this point that is too hyperbolic, no rant that is too far over the top. We haven't even raked up any leaves yet, and we're raking the Eagles' season toward the curb, at 1-3, 0-2 in the NFC East, 0-3 in the conference after yesterday's wrenching, 23-20 loss to the Washington Redskins. Chip Kelly looked glassy-eyed and stricken in the claustrophobic FedEx Field visitors' interview room, nattering about "execution. " That's one of those sports-speak words that doesn't really mean anything specific, other than that people aren't getting the job done, either because they lack talent, or because they aren't being coached effectively.

The use of a police dog and other force against a Vineland, N.J., man who died in police custody Tuesday has stirred outrage from an activist and family members, while a lawyer representing the officers involved says their actions helped avoid a shooting. Phillip White, 32, was handcuffed and became unresponsive in an ambulance after Vineland police responded to a report of a disorderly person around 11 a.m. in the 100 block of Grape Street. Police reported that White was having "respiratory distress" when they called for medical assistance.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Strong words - scrawled on cardboard, bedsheets, and white paper - made it clear: Pennsylvania State University students were angry. They were angry at the brothers of Kappa Delta Rho fraternity, especially the 144 members of two invitation-only Facebook groups containing photos of naked, unconscious women. And they were upset with the university administration for not taking a stronger stance. More than 100 students and other supporters demonstrated Friday afternoon on the snowy campus.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - As James Franklin previewed spring practice Tuesday afternoon, the Penn State coach voiced optimism about many changes, including several position shifts and a stronger, more experienced offensive line to better protect quarterback Christian Hackenberg. "The fact that we're going to have two deep of scholarship players is exciting," Franklin said. "There's nobody that is happier about this group returning and the strides they've made than Mr. and Mrs. Hackenberg.
