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. She was taken to Paoli Memorial Hospital in a neck brace.

The excitement that has been building for the renewal of the rivalry between Army and Navy on Dec. 8 was on display Wednesday at Lincoln Financial Field, where coaches and players discussed the importance of the game to U.S. military personnel around the world. But the excitement on Navy's side was toned down considerably by a serious injury suffered by one of its players. Freshman Ralph "Rafi" Montalvo, the third-string quarterback for the Midshipmen, remained in a medically induced coma at a hospital in his hometown of Miami after suffering a severe head injury in a one-car accident on Thanksgiving night.

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.

JAMIE WYETH left school in sixth grade, so, in his formative years, he interacted far more with animals than people. "I spent a lot of time alone; I left school to be tutored," the 65-year-old artist said last week. "So most of my companions were animals. It's as simple as that. I knew more animals than I did people. " He was talking about his life on the porch outside the throwback home he shares with his wife Phyllis at the glorious Point Lookout in Chadds Ford, the land spreading out below almost as far as the eye can see, the rolling Brandywine Creek and a railroad track sharing the foreground, a perfect frame for the deer lounging near the faraway tree line.

JUST WAIT until next time. Fletcher Cox promised that, when he next scores a touchdown off a turnover, fans will witness 300 pounds of acrobatic, gyrating, choreographed joy. "It's like, once in a lifetime for a d-lineman to get a fumble and have the open field and the end zone is right there," Cox said. Cox didn't dare celebrate too much after his 17-yard touchdown romp iced Sunday's season-opening win against Jacksonville. For one thing, he feared that a celebration would further tire him, and he expected to have to return to action immediately.

WHILE HIS SAINT Joseph's University teammates prepared under a beautiful blue sky for last Friday's baseball game against La Salle, sophomore Joey Gorman was stuck indoors, practicing simple tasks that his twice-operated-on brain once cycled through automatically. With dark tufts of hair spilling from his black Chicago White Sox hat - which also obscured the 6- to 8-inch scar that runs from the back of his neck to the middle of his head - Gorman walked heel-to-toe while tossing a ball above his head from hand-to-hand.

JUDE LAW GOES big to play the lead role in "Dom Hemingway," literally and otherwise. Law's packed on some "Raging Bull" pounds to play Dom, an ex-con and career criminal emerging from a long stretch in prison to collect the large amount of money owed him for keeping quiet in prison. The actor goes big in other ways - the movie is larded with oratory, long and loud and stylized and obscene, and Law delivers each speech with theatrical panache and red-faced commitment (not from embarrassment, but from exertion)
