The 76ers are 11 1/2 games away from Boston in the NBA's Atlantic Division. Denver, tonight's opponent at the Spectrum, is even farther out of first place in the Midwest Division. The NBA Players Association would dearly love to be that close in its early negotiations toward a new collective bargaining agreement with the owners. But it isn't. The two sides are miles apart. "In our initial meeting, we had given the owners our proposal, and now they have given us ours," said Charles Grantham, executive vice president of the players association, arriving in town last night after yesterday's second negotiating session in New York.

The major league baseball talks resumed and the owners reshuffled their bargaining team by appointing Boston Red Sox chief executive officer John Harrington as their lead negotiator. The move, announced yesterday by acting commissioner Bud Selig, came during the first substantive negotiating session between the parties since Sept. 9, five days before owners canceled the World Series for the first time since 1904. Until now, Richard Ravitch had been management's head bargainer. Management downplayed the shift in public comments.

TRENTON - Gov. Christie said Wednesday that he would not negotiate health benefits for public workers through collective bargaining and instead would try to change the law to increase contributions toward health premiums. "We're not negotiating this. We're going for a legislative fix. That's the plan," Christie said at a Statehouse news conference. That drew an immediate comparison to Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, the Republican who inflamed passions on both sides of the union debate when he moved to limit collective-bargaining rights for most public workers.

So the city and the state are ready to resume negotiations over the future of the Philadelphia schools, as if they had any other choice. Oh, sure, last week's headline-grabbing duel of leaks seemed to threaten the talks, what with the revelations that the state had already worked out a post-takeover contract with Edison Schools Inc. and that the city was exploring various ways to sabotage the state's efforts. But in my mind, there's one word to describe those pyrotechnics.

Baseball's already contentious labor talks took a turn for the worse yesterday as the players flatly rejected management's latest proposal, calling it "a giant step backwards. " Talks between the two sides broke off late in the afternoon, with representatives of each saying they did not expect to hold another session today. As the lockout of players enters its eighth day, there are growing indications that the regular season - and not just spring training - will be delayed. "I want to play baseball more than anything," said pitcher Orel Hershiser of the Los Angeles Dodgers, who attended yesterday's bargaining session.

Wednesday negotiations turned into Thursday acrimony as the NFL and its players union called off a follow-up bargaining session and the league canceled an owners' meeting scheduled for Tuesday in Philadelphia. The decision to cancel Thursday's sit-down illustrated just how far apart the two sides are on a new collective-bargaining agreement, with their current deal set to expire March 3. The players were quick to blame the owners for the breakdown after the two sides met in Washington on Wednesday.

The National Lacrosse League will have a season after all. Nine days after the league canceled its schedule because of a labor impasse, the NLL announced a 7-year collective bargaining agreement yesterday. The deal between the league and the Professional Lacrosse Players' Association begins with the upcoming season and extends through the 2014 season. It is the longest labor deal in the 22-year history of pro indoor lacrosse. The league announced the season had been canceled when the sides could not come to an agreement by a midnight deadline on Oct. 15. "Reaching a long-term collective bargaining agreement with the players was our No. 1 priority in this process," commissioner Jim Jennings said in a statement.

In case anybody had any doubts, more than 200 members of the NHL Players Association affirmed what their player representatives already had said: The union is not willing to accept a collective bargaining agreement that includes a payroll tax. But it seemed clear after yesterday's meeting, maybe the last general membership meeting before that elusive deadline for canceling the season, that talks will resume soon, working around a framework that...

The NFL and its players union have gone from bargaining to legal action in less than a week. The sides sat down to talk Wednesday, but a follow-up meeting was canceled and on Monday the league charged that the NFL Players Association is not bargaining in good faith. The owners' filing with the National Labor Relations Board accuses the players of "surface bargaining" designed to "run out the clock" on the current collective bargaining agreement, which expires March 3. If that date passed and a lockout begins, the players could decertify their union and bring an antitrust suit against the league, which the complaint says is the NFLPA's true goal.

With no bargaining talks scheduled between SEPTA and transit workers, the president of the agency's largest union accused it of trying to provoke a strike. The contract between SEPTA and 4,700 city bus drivers, subway operators and maintenance workers represented by Transport Workers Union Local 234 expired at midnight Friday. TWU leaders did not call for an immediate strike, saying they would wait at least until after suburban driver and mechanic contracts expired during the first week of April.

Few Philadelphians are as unequivocal in their praise for the city as Frank Steele. What is surprising, however, is that Steele is a native New Yorker, and still lives with his wife, Mary Jo, and three daughters on the "Queens side of the Whitestone Bridge. " "We are in love with Philly," said Steele, a consultant for the New York City school system, citing "the tradition and landmarks, and especially the Reading Terminal Market. " The Steeles' connection to Philadelphia is a condo in the Peninsula building at Waterfront Square that they bought in June 2014.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Inside Bright House Field Wednesday morning, Ryne Sandberg was trying to put a happy face on a grim situation. On the eve of his second spring training as Phillies manager, he talked about how eager he was to get a longer look at some of his younger players. He called this a "transition" period rather than a rebuilding one. "You never know in baseball," he said. "You get the right guys together on the same page, you just never know. " Meanwhile, in Tampa, the staff ace the Phillies tried to trade this offseason was telling a reporter from USA Today how badly he wanted to turn the page.

Jackie Smith is offering her Coatesville home for rent for $15,000 during the week of the papal visit in September. She envisions her guests will be a few out-of-state families who opt to share the postwar bungalow an hour's drive from Center City. If Smith, a single mother who works at Wegmans, has her way, she hopes to use the money to go on a cruise with her mother and daughter, all still coping with the death of her 16-year-old son three years ago. "It'd be nice, just us three girls, to get away," she said.

HARRISBURG - With much at stake, lawyers for the School Reform Commission on Wednesday asked a panel of five Commonwealth Court judges to affirm their power to cancel the Philadelphia School District teachers' contract. The law that created the SRC acknowledged that in times of distress, the commission must have at its disposal special powers, argued commission attorney Mark Aronchick. "The polestar is the children, not the protection of some collective bargaining interest that protects the interest of teachers," Aronchick told the judges.

ONE DAY AFTER effectively blindsiding the teachers union by unilaterally canceling its contract, School Reform Commission Chairman Bill Green said the SRC waited to take the action to avoid jeopardizing passage of the cigarette tax in Harrisburg. Green's admission came in response to speculation that Monday's action by the SRC - imposing major health-care benefits changes on thousands of teachers, counselors, nurses and other Philadelphia Federation of Teachers members - was done to aid Gov. Corbett's floundering re-election efforts.

Not everyone has a million dollars to buy a fabulous house down the Shore. But don't despair - there's still a sandy place for the rest of us. Just ask Joe and Jane Santo, who last year purchased a $132,000 second home in the Villas, Cape May County. In a decade or so, they may move there full time and make the house their retirement retreat. It helps that it's situated on Spruce Avenue, on the bay side and three blocks from the beach. These days, forecasts of rising sea levels, in addition to the higher prices, taxes, and maintenance costs, are making oceanfront Shore properties less a draw than they might once have been.

TRY AS HE might, Ron Hextall could not rid the Flyers of any of the numerous onerous contracts bogging down their salary cap. Hextall could not find a taker for center Vinny Lecavalier, despite the fact he gave agent Kent Hughes more than 2 weeks to work out a landing spot. He will be paid a $2 million signing bonus today, which hampered negotiations. Hextall did not budge in buying out winger R.J. Umberger, despite the fact he is the Flyers' second-highest paid forward after Claude Giroux.
