With staccato regularity, guns are killing children. Epidemic. Public health crisis. Tragedy. By whatever name, these deaths bring profound loss to families and communities. This series attempts to capture the look, the sound, and the feel of this loss. Folks come to the Chinese takeout at 19th and Gerritt for more than the food, which is said to be good. Blunts - cigars that can be filled with marijuana - are sold at the bulletproof window along with egg rolls. Open until 3 a.m., it's a natural hangout.

The other shoe has dropped. American Cities, the independent expenditure group backing State Sen. Anthony Williams for mayor, has launched a television ad campaign said to be worth $560,000. American Cities joins two other independent groups - both supporting one of Williams' five rivals, former City Councilman James F. Kenney - in what is expected to become an increasingly acerbic air war to determine who will be the Democratic nominee for mayor of Philadelphia. The groups supporting Kenney - Building a Better Pennsylvania and Forward Philadelphia - have been running ads on behalf of Kenney.

The amount of money they had given already was historic for Pennsylvania - and now, it's more. Joel Greenberg, Arthur Dantchik, and Jeff Yass - all executives at the Susquehanna International Group L.L.P. of Bala Cynwyd - started over the winter by indirectly giving $1.5 million to State Sen. Anthony Hardy Williams' Democratic campaign for governor. The cash allowed Williams, who belatedly entered the race in February, to pour out a Niagara of TV ads leading up to Tuesday's primary.

PHILADELPHIA-BASED model Ray Armstrong was high above New York City's Times Square this summer on a pommel horse, the chiseled subject of a Target Olympic billboard campaign. But by Sept. 27, he was wet and naked, lying face-down and praying in the middle of a Grays Ferry street, waiting to be arrested for murder. It was the street in front of Anthony Williams' house, a man who, for as long as anyone can remember, opened his door to homeless children and adults. And Armstrong, 31, a friend whom Williams called his "little brother," was one of them.

RAYMOND ARMSTRONG, the model on trial for allegedly strangling a longtime friend in the man's Grays Ferry home in September 2008, at first fought back tears and then burst out sobbing Thursday while pleading his innocence on the witness stand. Armstrong, 35, who has modeled for Target and Kenneth Cole, told the Common Pleas jury that while dozing in a second-floor bedroom after becoming ill, he awoke after realizing he was being sexually assaulted by the homeowner, Anthony Williams.

Two down, two more coming. On Nov. 30, businessman Tom Knox is scheduled to formally declare himself a nominee in the May 15 Democratic primary for mayor. Soon following him, campaign sources say, will be State Rep. Dwight Evans (D., Phila.), who is expected to formalize his candidacy Dec. 11. Two men already have announced their candidacy: former City Councilman Michael Nutter and U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah. Another potential candidate, meanwhile, has ruled out a run. State Sen. Anthony Williams, who has flirted with the idea - though not in as high-profile a manner as seven other Democrats who have voiced interest in the job - is expected to instead lend his support to Evans.

Now that U.S. District Judge Eduardo Robreno has shown the way, the Pennsylvania legislature must do its part to prevent parents and other relatives who live with someone suspected of being a drug dealer from unfairly losing their homes and property. Robreno approved a settlement last week between the Institute for Justice and the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office that puts reasonable limits on civil forfeitures, but the agreement doesn't apply outside the city. Under the state's civil forfeiture law, if police merely suspect that a house, business, car, or cash was involved in a crime, they can seize it and auction it off. The proceeds may then be banked by the local law enforcement agency.

Former Mayor W. Wilson Goode Sr. recalls a curious child with a seat at the table as the grown-ups in West Philadelphia plotted campaigns for political office independent of the Democratic machine. Anthony H. Williams was there in the late 1960s and early 1970s because his father, Hardy Williams, was a chief plotter. "He always appeared more mature than his age," Goode said of the younger Williams. "Little Tony, as we called him, was always around and always interested in what we were doing.

If dollars were votes, state Sen. Anthony Hardy Williams would be a sure bet to win the Democratic primary for mayor. Williams and former City Councilman Jim Kenney each raised more than $1.3 million from Jan. 1 to Monday to run for mayor, according to campaign-finance reports filed Friday. But this is the season of the independent expenditure group, political action committees operating as financial free radicals, raising and spending funds unhindered by the city's campaign-finance limits.

As though to underline the point, the West Philadelphia Democrat showcased his campaign advisers: 270 Strategies, based in Washington, widely credited with masterminding the grassroots efforts that were part of President Obama's campaigns....

TONY WILLIAMS wasn't about to let a little thing like being paralyzed from the neck down keep him from having a full and productive life. Tony not only overcame his own disability, but he helped others who were also afflicted cope with their conditions. Anthony Eric Williams, an accountant and Navy veteran whose life was forever changed about 25 years ago when he was shot in the neck during a robbery, died Nov. 11 of heart failure. He was 52 and lived in Wynnefield. Former Gov. Tom Ridge appointed Tony to the board of the Pennsylvania Rehabilitation Council, of which he served twice as chairman.

There's an Adrian Peterson-like quality to Central Bucks South running back Josh Adams. The same step that Adams uses to juke you out of your socks, he'll use to run you over. He runs upright, but downhill. He's already 6-foot-1 but still a sophomore. He is a big, bruising burner of a running back, just like the Minnesota Vikings star. And in a contest that proved to be a shootout - not surprising considering recent games between the teams - Adams ran as if he was being shot out of a cannon.
