State Treasurer Douglas C. Berman, who had become a focal point for Republican criticism of Gov. Florio's fiscal policies, announced yesterday that he would resign on Jan. 10. His decision allows Florio to name a treasurer in time to work with the incoming Republican majorities in the legislature as a new state budget is developed. "Doug not only has been a friend, but someone who's been extremely helpful to me," Florio said of Berman, who also had been his campaign manager.

An Israeli man arrested this month told the FBI that he went to the Deptford Mall, used a cell phone to call in a bomb threat, and then watched the police response. Offer Berman, 22, was arrested by Deptford police later that day - Nov. 8 - and his bomb threat prompted a federal investigation. "Obviously, all kinds of attention was drawn to it because of his nationality, but it was nothing more than a stupid prank," said Brian McMonagle, a Philadelphia lawyer representing Berman.

If David Berman tells the audience members at First Unitarian Church on Tuesday that he loves them, he won't just be mouthing hollow stage patter. "I get really happy when I see people who like the Silver Jews' music," says Berman, the songwriter, guitarist and author of the acclaimed 1999 poetry collection Actual Air, talking on the phone from a van driving across Ohio. "I feel a great affection for the audience. " Berman formed the band in 1989 with Stephen Malkmus and Bob Nastanovich (both members of Pavement)

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. - A former Rutgers University student accused of using a webcam to spy on his roommate's intimate encounter with another man turned down a plea deal in the roommate's subsequent suicide. The agreement could have limited his time behind bars to five years or have kept him out of prison. Dharun Ravi, 19, on Thursday affirmed his decision to go to trial, at which a conviction could mean 10 years or more in prison. A judge set a trial date of Feb. 21 for the case, which helped set off a national conversation about the bullying of young gays and lesbians.

In addition to erasing the four-game suspension of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady with his ruling Thursday morning, U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman also uncovered yet another reason for the nation's egg shortage. It turns out NFL commissioner Roger Goodell's face is full of yolks again. With McDonald's about to go to an all-day breakfast and the NFL already having appealed Berman's ruling that freed Brady to play in New England's season opener Thursday against Pittsburgh, you can expect to be paying premium prices for eggs into the distant future.

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. - Potential jurors in the trial of a former Rutgers University student accused of using a webcam to spy on a roommate's sexual encounter will learn the name of the other man in the video, which has been kept secret since the roommate's September 2010 suicide.

If a "drug-induced psychosis" caused the explosive outburst that led Nicholas Borsello to murder his wife 13 years ago, it wasn't a prescribed drug that did the damage, a forensic psychiatrist testified yesterday in Delaware County Court. Instead, said Perry A. Berman, Borsello likely committed the killing under emotional duress heightened by stimulants not prescribed by a doctor. "I believe that he killed her in a moment of extreme heat of passion, at an emotionally aroused level, which was augmented by methamphetamines," Berman, a private psychiatrist who also advises the Philadelphia Public Defenders' Office, told jurors in the second day of a civil trial.

DROP DEAD DIVA. 9 p.m. Sunday, Lifetime. BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. - No one, it appears, set out to make Lifetime's "Drop Dead Diva" an occasional musical. Not Brooke Elliott, a Broadway veteran who stars (and sometimes sings) as Jane Bingum, a staid lawyer possessed by the spirit of a ditzy blond named Deb (Brooke D'Orsay). Not Josh Berman, who, before creating "Diva," wrote for CBS' "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" and Fox's "Bones. " Not even, apparently, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, two of Berman's fellow executive producers and the Oscar-winning team behind the movie musicals "Chicago" and "Hairspray.

A Delaware County jury yesterday found a psychiatrist negligent, but not harmfully so, in failing to monitor the drug dosages of a Marcus Hook man before he murdered his wife in a psychotic rampage 13 years ago. In a swift verdict, the jury denied a monetary award to Nicholas Borsello, 15. His father, Nicholas Borsello, served eight years in state prison after his conviction for third-degree murder in the 1984 killing, in which he slit his wife's...

The photographer George Tice has a long-running romance with his home state of New Jersey. It shines through in his large platinum prints of ordinary small-town fixtures: a movie theater, a White Tower hamburger joint, the well-stocked shelves of an old-fashioned grocery. His much-admired nocturnal images of a gas station ( Petit's Mobil Station, Cherry Hill, NJ , 1974) and a lonely telephone booth ( Telephone Booth, 3 A.M. Rahway, NJ , 1974) are of fluorescently lighted places we've all passed and barely noticed while driving at night, but Tice's still versions of them, shot with long exposures, transform them into glowing, mysterious beauties.

Cole Berman had played with and against Michael Davis enough to know that his longtime friend and rival from their Inter-Ac days would keep fighting after Berman rolled to an early lead in the final of the 115th BMW Philadelphia Amateur. However, every time Davis tried to rally Saturday, Berman would drain another clutch putt. The last putt that fell, a 25-foot birdie, clinched the Georgetown player's 6-and-4 victory at Llanerch Country Club. The win for Berman, 19, of Philadelphia Cricket Club, was his second straight in a Golf Association of Philadelphia major for which he was eligible.

A NONPROFIT GROUP in Washington thinks that we should know the players in the City Council fight to provide paid sick leave for more people employed here. We couldn't agree more. That's why we were curious about the reluctance of the nonprofit ROC Exposed to tell us more about itself. The group takes its name from its stated mission, exposing Restaurant Opportunities Centers United, a pro-labor organization that pushes for paid sick days for restaurant workers. ROC Exposed, in an email to reporters just before a Council hearing Tuesday on paid sick leave, said that the issue was being pushed by a "labor union front group.
