Officials here are still trying to determine why people inside the Mandee Shop in the New Britain Village Shopping Center experienced breathing difficulties Tuesday, forcing the shop's evacuation and sending 12 people to local hospitals. Township Fire Marshal Robert V. Cotton said Thursday that the cause of the problem was still a mystery. The store, which was closed after the 4:30 p.m. incident, reopened Wednesday afternoon after investigators checked to see whether an air-conditioning unit was faulty and tested the air quality.

NICOLE JONIEC'S biggest regret, five years after moving into a century-old townhouse in South Philadelphia with her husband and their two cats, is that she didn't zoom out a little more when she had checked out her new address on Google Maps. Joniec, 37, who works at the Free Library, said she now feels "silly" that she didn't realize how close they would live to the ancient, sprawling refinery on the banks of the Schuylkill then owned by Sunoco and which today - with a new owner, Philadelphia Energy Solutions - is booming with crude oil fracked in North Dakota.

Vince Bernardo, a former standout lineman at Plymouth Whitemarsh High School, died yesterday morning after falling ill while participating in a practice drill for Shippensburg University's football team. According to university officials, Bernardo was running 110-yard sprints when he began to struggle with his breathing. The 6-foot-2, 270-pound freshman offensive lineman was alert and responsive when first looked at by a team trainer, officials said. But his condition worsened, and he was administered cardiopulmonary resuscitation by emergency personnel before being taken by ambulance to Chambersburg Hospital.

If your child's at the bottom of the class, the reason may be in his throat. A new study published in the journal Pediatrics found that removing a child's tonsils and adenoids can lead to better grades, presumably because the surgery allows for a better night's sleep. Enlarged tonsils and adenoids can lead to a condition called sleep apnea, in which breathing stops for short periods during sleep. Children in the study, who had been in the bottom 10 percent of their class and also had been diagnosed with sleep apnea, raised their grades from C-plus to B-minus in the year after their surgery, said David Gozal, a professor of pediatrics at Tulane University School of Medicine who conducted the research.

Trent McCleary, the Montreal Canadiens winger who was nearly killed when struck on the throat by a puck last season in a game against the Flyers, retired yesterday, citing the injury as the reason. McCleary said the team doctor refused to clear him to play because he had breathing problems in the Canadiens' opening exhibition game last Sunday. "He said, 'This is dangerous,' " McCleary said of his conversation with Dr. David Mulder. McCleary said although the injury had healed enough for him to live a normal life, he had problems breathing while playing.

SUN AND SKIN. Yes, aging causes some skin problems. But "almost all the skin changes that people really don't like - wrinkling, roughness, sagging, bumps, irregular pigmentation, sallow skin tone - are attributable to sun damage, not age," an expert says in Glamour magazine. Want proof? Compare the fresh, smooth look of your generally unexposed-to-the-sun skin, say on the underside of your arms, to that on your face and hands, says Barbara Gilchrest, head of the dermatology department at Boston University's School of Medicine.

DALLAS - Miniature laundry detergent packets arrived on store shelves in recent months as an alternative to bulky bottles. But doctors across the country say children are confusing the tiny, brightly colored packets with candy and swallowing them. Nearly 250 cases have been reported this year to poison-control centers. Though they remain a tiny fraction of the thousands of poisoning calls received every year, doctors are concerned. The symptoms they see in connection with ingesting the packets - such as nausea and breathing problems - are more severe than typical detergent poisoning.

D EAR ABBY: Are senior citizens having more affairs these days? I used to laugh at the "old couples' sex letters" I'd see in your column - until it hit home. My husband (age 68) ran into a 38-year-old ex-waitress friend. They had lunch, which led to emails and texts, which led to sexts and then a full-blown affair. I believe these personal/secretive forms of communication make going from texting to sexting much too easy. Our generation didn't have much sexual freedom growing up. I think men of that generation have a "go for it before it's too late" mentality, and the combination of the Internet and Viagra is making it possible.

The 20-year-old British exotic dancer who died after getting silicone injections from "Black Madam" Padge Victoria Windslowe had 25 to 40 times the amount of the liquid's key chemical element than is usually found in people, a pathologist testified Wednesday. That level of the naturally occurring element silicon is usually fatal, Delaware County Medical Examiner Frederic Hellman told the Philadelphia Common Pleas Court jury hearing Windslowe's third-degree murder trial in the Feb. 8, 2011, death of Claudia Aderotimi.

Two federally funded clinical studies have dashed hopes that cholesterol-fighting statin drugs could relieve severe or life-threatening breathing problems. Past studies suggested patients with lung damage who were taking statins had better outcomes than patients who were not, presumably because statins can reduce inflammation and block cholesterol production. But one of the trials, designed and led by Temple University researcher Gerard J. Criner, found that simvastatin (brand name Zocor)

TRENTON - Gov. Christie arrived at the state Capitol late Friday morning, saying he felt fabulous and was ready to work after spending several hours the day before in an emergency room for treatment of an asthma attack. Just after 11 a.m., a smiling Christie stepped out of his state trooper-driven SUV holding his suit jacket over one shoulder and carrying a briefcase in his other hand. Asked how he was doing after his eight-hour hospital stay, Christie responded: "Fabulous, better than I have any right to. " When he left Somerset Medical Center in Somerville on Thursday evening after undergoing two rounds of tests, Christie told reporters he had a full work day planned for Friday but would cancel his schedule if he awoke feeling unwell.

He will be paid $2 million retroactive to last season and $2.3 million next season and could remain at UConn another 8 years. Calhoun missed seven games in January with an undisclosed medical condition. The Huskies (18-16) lost to Virginia Tech in the second round of the NIT. Other off-the-court issues had prompted questions about Calhoun's future, including an investigation into the recruitment of former player Nate Miles.
