6 ABC anchor/reporter Lisa Thomas-Laury says she was lucky to escape injury in a car accident Friday in Ardmore. Thomas-Laury's cream-colored Porsche Cayenne SUV was struck by another car near County Line and Roberts roads. She was thankful that her airbag deployed and that she was wearing a seat belt, the veteran broadcaster told us when we contacted her after hearing of the accident. "It looks worse than it is," she said about a bruise on her head. She said a first-responder told her she would have been much worse off if she hadn't been driving an SUV.

One of Tim Paciello's best friends stood with classmates Tuesday on a side street across from Pottsgrove High School. The last bell had rung about 15 minutes before. He cried. They tried to comfort him. He cried. "He was there for everyone," his friend, a junior at the school, said about Paciello between labored breaths. "He didn't care who you were. He didn't care what you liked. " Paciello, a 16-year-old student who died Monday, cared only about being a good friend. On Monday, just before 9 p.m., Paciello was struck by a car as he crossed East High Street by Sunnyside Avenue in Lower Pottsgrove Township, said the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office and Lower Pottsgrove Township Police.

NO PROTOTYPE exists for a hero. No blueprints to follow, no tests to pass. A hero can be someone with a troubled past, a seasoned police detective or a 17-year-old high school kid. Yesterday, City Council honored the heroes of two Philadelphia tales that made headlines last week - the civilians who saved a police officer from his burning car and the men and women who helped return an abducted woman home safely. "We do good things in Philadelphia," Councilwoman Cindy Bass said.

NIGHTCRAWLER" is a horror movie for anyone who's survived layoffs and pay cuts and been told to "work smarter. " Which at this point in America includes just about everybody. The movie's title character is a goblin of management-trainee gobbledygook named Lou Bloom (gaunt Jake Gyllenhaal), a sociopath who at the movie's outset is roaming the midnight byways of Los Angeles looking for what he will later term a "skill" that will put him "on a track toward growth. " He finds it: Bloom stumbles upon a car accident, watches EMTs arrive to help victims, then sees freelance photographers show up to film the carnage.

ZACK BAMBARY is different. Not because he's a former walk-on who became enough of a contributor on Temple's special teams to earn a scholarship this season from coach Matt Rhule. And not because the finance major already has a job offer from pharmaceutical giant Merck whenever he enters the real world and starts working for a living. No, Bambary is different because he has diabetes, a disease that impacts nearly 10 percent of the American population and is the seventh-leading cause of death in this country.
