IS CAMDEN a hopeless case? Britt Starghill didn't think so. As pastor of Kaighn Avenue Baptist Church, Britt wasn't only concerned with the souls of his parishioners, but also with the soul of the impoverished city around him. He was founder of the Nehemiah Project, a community development corporation devoted to fighting the blight afflicting the Gateway section of the city. He adopted the Whittier School, with the aim of seeing to it that its students got the best education to ensure their success in the world beyond the classroom.

Philadelphia's King Britt is so far where he started from, he can hardly see through the trees. And not just because he moved from the West Philly of his childhood to Fishtown. The house-hop producer/DJ behind 1998's groovy When the Funk Hits the Fan and 2005's electro-swamp blues Sister Gertrude Morgan has become quite the experimental music provocateur and curator, roles highlighted on his new album, Other Sides , and his new once-monthly live event, the Buddy System, at Johnny Brenda's on Monday.

BETHLEHEM — Andy Reid, slimmed and smiling, stood in the midday sun. Sweat poured off him and dripped from his mustache, bushier as the years progress. Congratulated on his son Britt's recent marriage, asked about his other children's lives, Reid beamed. Reid never beams. Only when he speaks about his family. "Everybody's great," Reid said. Seven days later. Everything is not great. Everything is awful. Garrett Reid, the eldest of Reid's five children, was found dead in his dorm room at Lehigh University on Sunday morning.

TENNESSEE receiver Kenny Britt injured his right knee in Sunday's win over Denver and will need season-ending surgery. "Unfortunately, he tore his ACL and his MCL so he will be out for the season," Titans coach Mike Munchak said yesterday. "He was off to a great start this year. As we all know, he's a special player. He's got a lot of work ahead of him. But he's young. We know that he'll be back next year. " The injury leaves Tennessee with four receivers, and team officials already are looking for someone to fill the spot on the roster.

For a few minutes, anyway, it was Spencer Reid's turn. Spencer is the youngest of Andy Reid's five children. Yesterday, Spencer announced that he would fulfill his dream of playing Division I football when, in the gymnasium at Harriton High, he signed his national letter of intent to play football at Temple University. As Spencer mushed his Reid redhead under a Temple ballcap, Andy sat on his left. His mother, Tammy, the clan's boss, sat on his right and co-signed the letter. His brothers, Garrett and Britt, looked on. Sisters Crosby and Drew Ann, pursuing their own post-high school endeavors, were out of town and unable to attend.

The amazing thing, watching replays from Sunday's second half, is that Kenny Britt is not making circus catches. The man who killed the Eagles with seven receptions for 225 yards, four for 159 in the fourth quarter, isn't balancing the ball on his nose or catching it with his elbows or turning midair somersaults like a ninja. He's just cruising around free in the Eagles' secondary, generally no one within a few yards of him. Then, Kerry Collins throws Britt a pass, Britt catches it uncontested, and strides downfield.
