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.

Women in Shakespeare's day weren't allowed to perform on stage. In Quintessence's production of the Bard's Othello , director Alexander Burns won't let them play, either. At first glance, it seems an odd choice. The central plot revolves around Iago (Josh Carpenter), an ensign passed over for promotion by his Moorish general, Othello (Khris Davis), in favor of pretty-boy academic Cassio (Daniel Fredrick). Othello's marriage to the fair Desdemona (an excellent Ross Bennett Hurwitz)

It's not often I get to write an unabashed rave that's also an expression of civic pride, so listen up: The Arden Theatre's revival of Incorruptible is a valentine to and from the Philadelphia theater community. An Arden greatest hit from its 1995-96 season, it's written by Michael Hollinger, a Philadelphia-based playwright, and features an all-Philadelphia cast, director, and designers. But that's not the only reason you should care. You should care because this production, about a medieval French monastery whose saintly miracle-performing relics and income have both flatlined, has a nimble, sharp script matched with performances by a cast that's a natural fit. Proven entities such as Ian Merrill Peakes as Brother Martin, a high-strung, Machiavellian monk, and Marcia Saunders as Agatha, a tyrannical monster (monstress?

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.

When Daniel Dougherty heard the news, he had one question for his lawyers: When do I get out? They couldn't give him an answer. But now, after 14 years in prison for the arson murder of his two young sons - a crime he swears he did not commit - he's to get a new trial. The state Supreme Court denied a commonwealth appeal and let stand a lower court's order for a retrial. "We're looking forward to the day when we pick him up at the gates and bring him home," defense lawyer Shannon Farmer said.

Q uestion: Many areas of my linoleum floor have embedded stains, which I am unable to remove using various common household cleaners. I would like to restore my floor to a like-new condition. What do you recommend? Answer: If your floor is very old, I imagine most of those stains could be there to stay. On the other hand, Armstrong, which has been making linoleum floors for decades, recommends two of its products. If you are willing to spend some money, they might work for you. One is Armstrong Satinkeeper Resilient Low Gloss Floor Finish.

Good People is the cinematic equivalent of a page turner, a thriller that leaves no thriller trope unused, no melodramatic stone unturned, no foreshadowing unshadowed. Heck, it's even got bad guys driving a Jaguar - just as the TV commercials promise. But a good cast, some solid if gruesome action beats and a short running time mean we'll stick with it, turning those predictable pages right up to the grand predictable finale. James Franco and Kate Hudson are an American couple trying for a "fresh start" in London.

EAGLES CORNERBACK Cary Williams was Ray Rice's teammate for three seasons with the Baltimore Ravens. When Williams was asked to talk about Rice's banishment from the NFL yesterday, after TMZ posted a video of Rice knocking out his then-fiancée and now wife, Janay, that friendship was on Williams' mind, along with his own missteps. "I understand hitting a woman is very, very disrespectful, and it's something I wouldn't want my daughter ever going through," Williams said. "But we gotta also understand people make mistakes.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Whenever Penn State coach James Franklin has been asked recently about Christian Hackenberg, he consistently has mentioned finding the "pieces of the puzzle" - choosing from an inexperienced corps of offensive linemen and wide receivers - to place around the Nittany Lions quarterback. Franklin won't say he is worried, but most of Nittany Nation is. The offensive line returns only one starter, and three of the early projected starting five have not played a single down there.

When Bonnie Paul asked her daughter, Ilena, if she wanted to join the army in a production of Shakespeare's Henry IV at Clark Park, the preteen hesitated. Their conversation went something like this: "Would I get to kill you?" asked Ilena, 12. "Maybe," replied Bonnie, 41. That sold the girl on the idea, although she and her mother did end up being cast on the same side, fighting rebels rather than each other. The thespian combatants are two of 88 volunteers from around Philadelphia appearing in the epic Battle of Shrewsbury scene of H enry IV , this year's production of Shakespeare in Clark Park, which debuts Wednesday.

Having written orchestral works that contemplate the essence of rivers and oceans, Pulitzer Prize-winning composer John Luther Adams is heading toward the source of it all, with an hour-long piece so expansive it can't be contained by a typical concert hall - and can only go outdoors. Sila: The Breath of the World contemplates the force behind all of nature. (The title is the Inuit name of the abstract deity behind wind, rain, and life.) Friday and Saturday in New York, as part of the Mostly Mozart and Lincoln Center Out of Doors festivals, the piece will bring together, in Hearst Plaza outside Lincoln Center, the Philadelphia chamber choir the Crossing, the JACK Quartet, and any number of other contemporary-music mainstays.

THE IDEA of "Broadway on the Boardwalk" has been a staple of the Atlantic City casino era. For decades, gaming halls have staged both Broadway-themed revues and actual musicals, from full-blown renditions to "tab shows" truncated to get gamblers back to the casinos within 90 minutes. But the Broadway-to-Boardwalk blueprint will be taken to unprecedented levels next month as the Atlantic City Alliance - the town's casino-funded marketing agency - stages a series of free Monday night concerts on the Great Wood Way.

SEA ISLE CITY, N.J. - Mayor Lenny Desiderio is waxing poetic about white cosmopolitans and sidewalk dining in Sea Isle. What? Yes, in Sea Isle, a place buoyed for decades by such sturdy traditions as No Shower Happy Hour, $1.50 Coors Light mugs (no purchase of mug required), and phone booths that doubled as urinals more often than you'd like to think about. "Martinis, Manhattans, white cosmos, red cosmos," Desiderio says of what people are drinking at SideKix, the urbane little offshoot of his landmark party bar, Kix McNulty's, designed for, say, a more sophisticated Sea Isle drinking experience.
