Fourteen years ago, Mirca Liberti and Louise Fradkin got together with a friend who needed help and advice in caring for her 80-year-old mother. After discussing the problem, the woman said she felt much better. "I thought, what did we do to make her feel better?" recalled Liberti. "She needed support, and we gave it to her. " Liberti and Fradkin have continued helping care-givers through Children of Aging Parents (CAPS), a support and referral group they founded in 1977 with 50 members and a $5,000 budget.

The historic Berlin Hotel will be heading north. At the end of this month, the hotel, a White Horse Pike landmark that was a stop on a 19th-century stagecoach route from Philadelphia to Atlantic City, will be moved about a half-mile to the borough's municipal complex on the pike. In December, the borough received a $537,000 grant from the state Department of Transportation that it will use to move the building, which is on the New Jersey and national historic registers, to an empty lot next to the library.

The Atlanta Braves made the first move among National League East contenders Friday night when they traded controversial closer John Rocker to the Cleveland Indians for relievers Steve Reed and Steve Karsay. Reaction in the Phillies' clubhouse? "I think you always expect the Braves to make moves if they feel they have needs," third baseman Scott Rolen said. In this case, it seems as if the need might have been to get rid of Rocker's potentially explosive personality. A club official with the Braves said the team had been trying to trade Rocker for most of the season.

When it came time to clear out the former George Washington Motor Lodge, Dennis Murray knew exactly what to do: call upon his friends at the Souderton/ Telford Rotary Club for an afternoon of furniture moving. Four-drawer dressers, tables, chairs, mattresses, box springs and mirrors - 250 rooms' worth - are making their way to flood victims in Florida and Louisiana, an American Indian reservation in South Dakota and low-income families in Appalachia. Not to mention about 37 local charities that also got furnishings from the motor lodge's rooms.

CALGARY, Alberta - Having recently acquired defensemen Pavel Kubina and Nick Grossman, the Flyers are not expected to make a big splash at Monday's trade deadline, said a source close to the situation. In fact, it wouldn't be surprising if they stayed pat, the source said. General manager Paul Holmgren continues to have exploratory talks with Columbus about winger Rick Nash, but the Blue Jackets want several top young players (and draft picks) that the Flyers do not want to move.

On the first day of school at Roxborough High, a freshman friend of Mara Hughes was beaten up. Mara doesn't know why. Probably because that's sometimes what happens to freshmen at new schools. Kids going into the sixth grade are pretty anxious about getting hurt by the big kids on their first day of school as well, but most made it through unscathed - at least physically. But there's more to worry about when it's time to change schools and graduate into a higher grade than just making it through the first day without a swollen lip, bruised ribs and getting stuffed in a locker.

THREE HOURS before the first pitch, Charlie Manuel sat in the dugout as the players filtered onto the field to begin stretching and endured his daily give-and-take with reporters. "Was that our real team last year or were we just on a really hot roll?" the manager asked at one point, a reference to the extraordinary mid-September through late-October streak that lifted the Phillies in quick succession to the division title, the National League pennant and the world championship.

Finally, it's here. The start of Temple's first season back in the Big East Conference is just days away, after months of building excitement and anticipation. "This is the start of a new era," said second-year Owls coach Steve Addazio, whose squad spent the last five seasons as a football-only member of the Mid-American Conference. "A lot of work has been done here by a lot of people - coaches, former coaches, and administrators," he added. "Now, we take that next step. And we've got to now build this thing and keep it growing.

There was only one way for Dmitri Domani to make himself understood when he arrived in America from Moscow 16 months ago. By playing basketball. Now a gangly, blue-eyed, 6-foot-6 freshman swingman at St. Joseph's, Domani, 19, couldn't utter a word in English when he enrolled at Maine Central Institute, a prep school in Pittsfield where earthy coach Max Good runs a basketball boot camp and blue-chip prospects out of high school hone their academic skills to be eligible to play in Division I. "It took four, five months before people could understand me," Domani said recently in halting, but clear, English.

Seven-year-old Kristen Gahagan said she was a natural baton twirler. Referring to the maneuvers she has learned in baton class, she said, "I do them all good. " And so she did. But the girls still have a few kinks to work out of their routine. While dancing in a circle, Christy Hartman spent more time warily watching her friend Kristen than she did twirling, because Kristen was inadvertently hitting her in the head. "She's still smacking me," Christy yelled. Lynn Nichols said her "bunch of hams" had come a long way since they started in September.

General manager Ron Hextall sees how the Flyers play against elite teams - in the last five weeks they have defeated Nashville, St. Louis, the New York Rangers, Detroit, and Chicago - and doesn't think he needs to make many offseason moves. "There's not going to be a massive turnover," Hextall, who will have limited offseason cap space unless he can shed some salaries, said while watching the Flyers whip the Blackhawks, 4-1, at the Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday. "I think we're a better team than we've played.

WE LEARNED last March that Chip Kelly isn't afraid to shake things up when he released DeSean Jackson. We learned it again yesterday when Kelly sent shock waves through EaglesNation by agreeing to trade away his star running back, LeSean McCoy, and moving closer to releasing the second best pass-rusher in franchise history, Trent Cole. The moves, along with the release earlier in the day of cornerback Cary Williams, and last week's exit of veteran right guard Todd Herremans, are largely, but not entirely, salary-cap motivated.

T-Mobile has trumpeted itself since last year as "the uncarrier" - fourth place in customers, but first among anyone who hates the big guys' "gotcha" practices, such as long-term contracts or tricky data-roaming charges that can cost people thousands of dollars when they venture overseas. Now, T-Mobile is challenging Verizon and AT&T on two more counts. It is eliminating data charges for music streamed via services such as Pandora, Spotify, and Rhapsody. And, starting Monday, in league with Apple, it will offer anyone who wants to test its network a seven-day free trial on a loaner iPhone 5S. All you need is a credit card.

NEW YORK - Back on Hawk Hill, his coach had asked St. Joseph's guard Langston Galloway to be just a little more aggressive, a little more selfish. Galloway's understanding of the request goes straight into Hawks lore, since the senior's aggressiveness had a direct bearing on a 70-67 Hawks victory over Dayton in Friday's Atlantic 10 quarterfinals, a game that was as important as the Hawks have played in a long time. When you are the dominant focus of opposing defenses, there are a couple of ways to play it. You can set screens for teammates, and get them the ball more, since their opportunities will look like better opportunities.

Do not expect the Flyers to make any major moves before the March 5 trade deadline. That's what general manager Paul Holmgren said during a news conference Monday after the Flyers practiced in Voorhees. "I like our team," said Holmgren, giving his customary refrain. "I like the way we were playing when the Olympic break started. Right now, if there's something we can do that can help our team a little bit down the stretch, we would probably look at doing it - as long as it doesn't disrupt what we have stockpiled.

Taking over TV's most storied franchise, NBC's The Tonight Show , will be a breeze for Jimmy Fallon. On Monday at midnight, he's just moving across the hallway from Studio 6A to 6B and getting a lot of extra perks. (Beginning on Friday, the show will move back to its normal 11:35 p.m. slot.) The hard part came in 2009, when he was handed Late Night . Here he was, a Saturday Night Live expat coming off a dismal string of films, a guy with no hosting experience and a case of nerves so bad it was setting off seismographic monitors up in Canada.

NEWARK, N.J. - Last week, Paul Holmgren predicted "a lot of funny things" would happen beginning at the NHL draft, with the salary cap shrinking nearly $6 million next season. Holmgren might not be wrong. But yesterday's seriously hyped draft day was just about as unexciting as one of the Flyers' final games last season. "At the draft, sometimes you get locked into just drafting," Holmgren said. "There's still 4 or 5 days before free agency starts, so there's plenty of time for lots of action around the league.

Hello there Amber grew up in West Deptford, but moved to Los Angeles, then New York, where she took parts in commercials while studying for her MBA. She told friends she had no time for dating. There's always time for that, one friend said, and set up Amber's profile on PlentyofFish.com. Amber looked at profiles mainly to avoid homework. They were often humorously similar: likes movies and walks on the beach. Does not play games. Blah, blah. Then in November 2008, she read that John, an online marketer living in Monroe Township, Middlesex County, loved playing games - especially Trivial Pursuit and checkers.

This morning on 94 WIP, cohost Al Morganti introduced "the man responsible for Wing Bowl being in the Big House" - Ed Rendell. "How prominent in my obituary is it going to be that I moved Wing Bowl to the big stadium?" Rendell asked, referring to what is now called the Wells Fargo Center. The popularity of the annual event - scheduled for Friday - has exploded since its debut in 1993 featured just competitors in a hotel ballroom. By Wing Bowl IV, people were being turned away from an overflowing Electric Factory, while the area was beset by parking nightmares, Morganti recalled.
