Navy Secretary John F. Lehman has assured the congresssional delegations of Pennsylvania and New Jersey that there would be "only a modest reduction" in employment at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard. In a letter dated July 29 but made public yesterday, Lehman sought to put to rest concerns expressed by the legislators in May, when a Navy memorandum surfaced indicating that the shipyard could lose 3,000 of the 9,200 jobs it had then. Navy officials later said the memo was not an accurate reflection of the Navy's plans.

Declaring that "God will never let you down," Republican Pat Robertson left the impression yesterday that he believes he has been assured by the Almighty that he will be the next president of the United States. In an appearance before a large charismatic evangelical congregation in Bedford, the former Baptist minister said that God had called on him to run for the nation's highest office and he doubted that God would disappoint him. "He is faithful. God will never let you down," Robertson said to shouts of "amen" and "hallelujah.

Chris Smith, who will be a senior quarterback at Chichester High in the fall, made an oral commitment to West Virginia on Saturday. Smith gave Mountaineers coach Rich Rodriguez his pledge after attending the Gold-Blue Spring Game in Morgantown, W. Va. West Virginia is the only school to offer Smith a scholarship so far. Smith played wide receiver last season at Cardinal O'Hara, where he caught 32 passes for 527 yards. In November, he transferred back to Chichester, where he played quarterback as a freshman and sophomore.

City Council President Angel Fuentes moved yesterday to reassure Camden residents of the governing body's honesty, saying he was not aware of any investigation involving any of the members. The assurances came in response to former Councilman Ali Sloan El's acknowledgment Friday that he had taken a $10,000 bribe to pay off campaign debts during an FBI sting in 2003. "The majority will not tolerate [corruption] and will not compromise," Fuentes said at a hastily called news conference.

Adapted from recent online discussions. Question: I do not know why I am so perturbed by my boyfriend's subscription to Playboy magazine, bought before he met me. We are not young, we're in our late 50s. He has volunteered to throw away issues still to come. I am happy about that. If he no longer wants the magazine because he has me, then we are in a good place. But I have a few reservations about what the man's mind-set is, and I do not know how to analyze the situation.

The Phillies appear to be running out of time to reach agreement on a contract extension with third baseman Scott Rolen before the season opens. And that's probably not good news for the third baseman's future in Philly. It has been apparent for weeks that Rolen and agent Seth Levinson will be unwilling to negotiate after the first pitch of the season is thrown Monday at Pro Player Stadium in Miami. And if Rolen doesn't sign now, he will be one year away from free agency at the end of the season.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - The gnawing part is that everything about him suggests John Mayberry Jr. is a player. He runs fast. He hits bombs. He can play leftfield, centerfield, first base. In his uniform, he is a 6-6 Adonis, his looks so good that Hollywood would pass on casting him as a ballplayer, on those very grounds. And yet here he is, auditioning again at age 28, trying to prove - maybe even to himself - that last summer's power explosion was a start, not a blip. And thus far, not proving much.

THE MESSAGE arrived in the inbox of Flyers season ticketholders at 6:02 a.m. yesterday. The subject: "A message from Ron Hextall. " Inside was a link to a video on the team's website - an attempt to use their house media organ to control the message delivered to fans. Hextall, tasked with an arduous rebuild for a team that missed the Stanley Cup playoffs twice in three seasons, wanted fans to know he is not straying from the patient course he set out along last May - despite what chairman Ed Snider said in an interview in the March 25 edition of the Daily News.

During a brief discussion before his Annenberg Center performance on Thursday, Branford Marsalis offered a simple formula for the music he prefers: "If I can sing it, it's good; if I can't sing it, I reject it. " Dogmatic pronouncements on music seem to come with the Marsalis name, but where younger brother Wynton is the jazz fundamentalist, saxophonist Branford likes to play the cranky provocateur. That's epitomized in the title of his quartet's most recent release, Four MFs Playin' Tunes , which seems to promise un-selfconscious musicianship with a dose of puckish attitude.

GOOGLE a few terms - like "cheesesteak" or "Rocky" - and you'll get few references outside Philadelphia. The same holds true if you search for "councilmanic prerogative" or "councilmanic privilege" - the practice that gives elected lawmakers supreme power over development in their fiefdoms, er, districts. Other cities around the country have city councils, but privilege appears to be a strictly Philly thing. Council prerogative is not codified in the city charter, but in use nonetheless.

PHILADELPHIA Schools Superintendent William Hite got another promise yesterday that state lawmakers would continue to push for cigarette-tax approval to help fund the district, but he said a Friday deadline to decide whether to shorten the school year or make massive layoffs still looms. Hite met privately with state House Majority Leader Mike Turzai at the district's headquarters for about an hour yesterday afternoon. After the meeting, Hite said Turzai assured him that the House would work to pass "a clean bill," but that it did not change the district's grim reality - an $81 million shortfall.

PHILADELPHIA The Philadelphia School District is forecasting a budget of $2.8 billion next year - a figure that is up from this year's $2.4 billion outlay, but calls for $440 million in new money that the district is not assured of getting from the city or the state. Still, the budget would provide only what Superintendent William R. Hite Jr. called the basics for school reform. Acknowledging there were some risks involved in its forecasting, the School Reform Commission on Thursday night adopted a "lump sum" budget statement that projects slightly better conditions in city classrooms for 2014-15.

Is the Philadelphia Orchestra's audience being trained to respond to the dog whistle it sees, rather than the one it hears? Playing with movie scores, ballet dancers, even acrobats, the orchestra is increasingly sending the message that its core business - sound, right? - is no longer enough by itself. It announced Thursday that "stunning video images" will be added to next week's Britten program. Has the orchestra forgotten how to market an orchestra? You have to wonder, given concerts like Thursday night's, when a program as wholesome as Mozart and Brahms produced hundreds of empty seats in Verizon Hall.

With more than half of the Delaware River navigation channel now at or deeper than 45 feet, the dredging project that began in March 2010 is on target for completion in 2017. President Obama has proposed $35 million for the deepening of the Delaware in his 2015 fiscal year budget. About $20 million in federal money this year will be spent to deepen, from 40 to 45 feet, a stretch between the Ben Franklin and Walt Whitman Bridges and the southernmost 15 miles in the lower Delaware Bay. The lower channel contains sand, which will be used to build dunes and storm-damage protection at Broadkill Beach, said Ed Voigt, public affairs chief for the Army Corps of Engineers Philadelphia District.

Only 20 years ago, La Traviata was nearly unperformable due to a lack of true Verdi sopranos able to meet the vocal and dramatic demands of the central role. Now, a typical night at, say, the Latvian State Opera has a vocally capable, dramatic adept Violetta. And the way the Academy of Vocal Arts turns out Italianate singers, the rosy fortunes of Verdi's most durable opera won't change anytime soon. The new production that opened Saturday had a consistently mighty cast that sometimes seemed on the verge of breaking down the walls of the tiny Helen Corning Warden Theater.

UNIONDALE, N.Y. - During his 1,054-game career, Craig Berube didn't take many days off. If there was an optional practice, Berube was likely on the ice. "That's because I didn't play a lot," Berube said with a smile. "I needed to work on my game. " Now, walking the tightrope between practice and rest for his players is one of the toughest challenges Berube has faced in his 3-month run as a head coach. The Flyers will play three games in 4 nights this week for the second week in a row. They are in the midst of a gauntlet of 15 games in 29 days in January, with two separate West Coast trips serving as bookends.
