There've been more changes, and a little more information from the networks about what we'll be missing on television this summer while we're all out in the Florida surf or sunning in Mexico. From NBC: "Our House," will lighten-up a bit by putting more emphasis on comedy; new cast members for "The Facts of Life" and "Amen" will be added in the fall. Sherrie Kren, a native of Australia, joins "Facts" as an exchange student at Eastland Academy, and "Amen's" Sherman Hemsley adopts a young son, who has yet to be cast.

You've tried standing on one foot. You've tried the plastic bag trick. But no matter what you do, the cast on your broken ankle still gets wet when you take a shower. Now there is a solution, according to orthopedic technician Bill Schaefer of Turnersville, N.J. Since last summer, he has been using 3-M Wet-to Dry cast padding, which is designed to repel water. "I use this padding exclusively," said Schaefer, who works at Tri-County Orthopedics. "I put everyone in it because the biggest hardship is that you can't get washed.

Several members of the current and former cast of "The Young and the Restless" (weekdays on Channel 10) have released their own LP. The singers include Tracey E. Bregman, Colleen Casey, Michael Damian, Beth Maitland and Patty Weaver. This marks the first time cast members of a daytime show have recorded together. According to Damian, the idea came from the fans. "We kept getting requests from viewers and thought it would be a good idea to record the music. " The three that Damian recorded are the same songs he sang on the show.

Shakespeare must go through a big battle between the British and the French in Henry V, so he cheats. Through the play, he sends out a chorus in a theatrical preemptive strike: Sorry, they apologize, the play should be more convincing. Or it's too distant. Or the scene change is too quick. Not a wisp of this is true on the Delaware Theatre Company Stage, where director Sanford Robbins' scrappy, inventive production of the play opened Saturday night. Robbins stages Henry V all around us, and we become a part of the swirl between the king of England and the French, and the Battle of Agincourt that ensues in 1415.

The cast protecting Jerry Stackhouse's left hand is shrinking even as we speak. The legend of the kid from Kinston, N.C., is growing. The 76ers' rookie shooting guard began training camp with his hand encased in a cast that went down to the forearm, protecting a hairline fracture just above the ring finger. By last night, he was wearing a much smaller version, covering just the immediate area of concern. "It keeps getting smaller," Stackhouse said after fully participating in all of the drills and scrimmaging at the Bob Carpenter Complex.

Two movies with ensemble casts and plots about life among the contemporary midlife set top this week's list of new movies on video. INDIAN SUMMER 1/2 (1993) (Touchstone) $94.95. 108 minutes. Alan Arkin, Matt Craven, Sam Raimi, Diane Lane, Julie Warner, Bill Paxton, Elizabeth Perkins, Kevin Pollak, Vincent Spano. Don't believe anyone who tells you Indian Summer is a boomer reunion film in the spirit of The Return of the Secaucus Seven and The Big Chill. This summer-camp reunion film has a much better-looking ensemble cast, but the members don't mourn the loss of their ideals.

In the corner, two boys were applying a cast to a youngster's leg and foot as he sat patiently in a chair. And at nearby tables, children were gazing down at the stark white casts of hands, arms and faces. The odd sight may have been more in keeping with a first-aid class than an art museum. But this week, the children weren't mending limbs; they were creating sculptures as part of a summer art program at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Broad and Cherry Streets.

Broadway musicals rarely make sense in revival, especially when they are exhumed by opera houses in a self-conscious attempt to confer artistic status on them. The musical is an artifact of the age for which it was written and produced. Its creative energy is drawn from a combination of factors of the moment, not the least of which is the profit incentive. It is not art, except by rare accident; and when the New York City Opera does a Brigadoon, as it did not long ago, the effect is to diminish the work by suggesting that it is something other than what it is. Operatic albums of classic musicals, the so-called "crossover" phenomenon, lack the vitality and excitement that an original-cast album can capture.

Walnut's Independence Studio on 3 presents the American premiere of Mr. Bailey's Minder, a beautifully performed soap-operatic drama by Australian Debra Oswald - and there's not a dry eye in the house. Leo Bailey (Bev Appleton) is a world-famous painter, "a national treasure," who is also a "wet brain" - an alcoholic. Having run through five wives, eight children, and many minders and nurses, he is now old and sick and in need, again, of a caretaker. Enter Therese (Erin Reilly)

WASHINGTON - Since 2002, a New York congressman has tried to eliminate what he calls an "unnecessary perk" for drug companies: tax write-offs for their ads bombarding television viewers about pills for allergies, arthritis, even erectile dysfunction. His bill has never gone anywhere. Comcast wants to make sure it stays that way. Through its subsidiary, NBC Universal, Comcast lobbies each year to make sure the long-shot proposal from Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D., N.Y.) stays bottled up. The effort to stall the "Say No to Drug Ads Act" is just one tiny example of how the lobbying arm for Philadelphia-based Comcast has grown to reach into even the quiet corners of the Capitol, and sometimes surprising facets of public policy.

THANK HEAVEN teens still read books. Without them, Hollywood might be teetering on bankruptcy. Case in point: "Divergent," a blandly staged but perfectly cast movie making a bid to be the industry's next profit center - and like "Twilight" and "The Hunger Games," its based on a popular young-adult book series. Veronica Roth's novels center on a teen girl named Tris (Shailene Woodley) who lives in a bombed-out, near-future Chicago where society has re-arranged itself into factions, each based on human virtues such as selflessness, courage, etc. Tris, like all other teens, must choose a faction when she's of age, then undergo rigorous testing to see if she truly belongs.

To be Irish is to have an existential dark spot in the soul, an ingrained gateway to fatal despair if it's not kept in check - which is what lies beyond the congenial face of Brian Friel's poetic, bittersweet play Dancing at Lughnasa . Though the play had an international vogue in the 1990s followed by a film starring Meryl Streep, West Philadelphia's Curio Theatre Company made a fine case for revisiting Dancing at Lughnasa at its Friday...

Everyone talks of Comcast Corp. in terms of cable TV, and in the hours after the Philadelphia company announced Thursday its $45.2 billion megadeal for Time Warner Cable Inc., Comcast executives signaled to Washington regulators that they were willing to divest three million cable-TV subscribers to obtain approvals for the deal. But for some consumer advocates there was a much more important issue: the power that the combined Comcast and Time Warner Cable will have in the residential Internet market, which many consider to be the delivery platform of the future for video and information into American homes.

WASHINGTON - After more than 23 years, the abrupt end to U.S. Rep. Robert E. Andrews' time in Washington came even faster than expected. With a snowstorm bearing down on the mid-Atlantic, the House voted a day early to raise the nation's borrowing limit and rushed out of Washington Tuesday, making the day Andrews' last in the Capitol while representing South Jersey. The Democrat's last day on the job is next Tuesday, but Congress is out next week, and Wednesday's votes were called off as the looming storm produced what negotiations, strong-arming, and pleading rarely do: swift, decisive action.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - A lot of Eagles fans wondered aloud this season how much better Chip Kelly's high-powered offense might have been with the injured Jeremy Maclin mixed in among the wide receivers. Here's one obvious answer: not nearly as good as Peyton Manning and his cast of dynamic wide receivers with the Denver Broncos. This, of course, will forever be known as The Season of Peyton. It will be his name next to the NFL-record 55 touchdown passes and the 5,477 passing yards. With a win in the Super Bowl on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks at MetLife Stadium, he will have completed the greatest season by any quarterback in the league's history.

CHRIS CLOVER is St. Joseph's Prep basketball. The 6-4 junior forward is the only player who can score. If you stop him, you stop the Hawks. Not so fast! "Yeah, we've been hearing that a lot," said SJP senior Tom Fox yesterday. "We've been hearing that he's the only one scoring, but we don't listen to it. Chris does a good job of finding us when he's double- and triple-teamed. " Clover headlined yesterday's 64-56 victory for the Prep (13-3, 5-2) over host Archbishop Ryan, but without Fox and Co. the Raiders might have taken tops on the marquee.

LESEAN MCCOY is unquestionably "the man" in Philadelphia. If it were not for the remarkable season Peyton Manning is having in Denver, McCoy would have a great chance of being named the NFL's MVP. But every now and then, even the league's leading rusher needs a rest, which has helped the Eagles earn a reputation for their three-headed rushing attack. Behind McCoy stands backup running back Bryce Brown, who, after a strong rookie season, has struggled with a roller-coaster 2013 season.
