Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: I'm nearing 40 and recently single (no kids yet). I've been asked out separately on dates by two guys who are in their mid-late 20's. Too young? I feel somewhat more compatible with the younger men (at least four or five years younger), in part because I don't have kids yet. I've found that a lot of the men my age or older are already settled, meaning they have kids, sometimes already grown. I still would like at least one child, if possible.

College students and parents looking for financial aid, listen up: The Free Application for Federal Student Aid, also known as the FAFSA, has changed this year. The form still asks for information about income, assets, and family size - but with a twist. Schools use the FAFSA form to calculate a family's eligibility for federal aid, as well as many state and private aid programs. What's new this year? The FAFSA form collects financial information from dependent students' legal parents - regardless of their marital status or gender, if those parents live together.

You'd think it was Santa Claus and his elves standing at Broad Street and Washington Avenue and not Misses P., a.k.a. Nathan Walk, and other members of the Drag Brigade. Everyone wanted a photo with the 10 ladies - a mother who eagerly foisted her toddler into Misses P.'s arms; two police officers; and multiple Mummers with painted faces. "I'm really having a great time," beamed Stella D'oro, Tim Johnson's alter ego, who was dressed as a Pan Am stewardess. In the world of Mummery, this was history.

WHEN THE NFL announced its Pro Bowl rosters on Wednesday night, Eagles kicker Alex Henery contemplated with curiosity. "I watched with outside hope," Henery admitted. "I kind of figured it wasn't going to come, though. " Aside from guard Evan Mathis, whom offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg called the "last man standing" on the Birds' battered offensive line, Henery figured to be the Eagles' best shot at a Pro Bowl nod. Henery, 25, was the Eagles' most valuable player on offense this season.

When those college tuition bills come in, be prepared for sticker shock - especially at Penn State. The average tuition at a four-year public university climbed 15 percent between 2008 and 2010, fueled by state budget cuts for higher education and increases of 40 percent and more at universities in states like Georgia, Arizona, and California. The U.S. Department of Education's annual look at college affordability also found significant price increases at the nation's private universities, including at for-profit institutions, where the net price for some schools is now twice as high as Harvard's.

Any hope of burnishing the beleaguered Camden City School District's image before Superintendent Bessie LeFra Young's imminent departure seemed to disappear Monday when the state Department of Education's revised "Quality Single Accountability Continuum" performance review's findings became public. The scores show the district still failing in virtually all categories. The district had appealed the initial QSAC report of early February that gave the district failing grades in four of the five categories — instruction and program (7 percent)

An American Lung Association report on the nation's air quality has turned up a puzzling blip: In this heavily urbanized region, comparatively rural Chester County has the highest annual average for fine-particle pollution - the sooty stuff that carries chemical pollutants and lodges deep in the lungs. However, the county still meets air quality standards for the pollutant. It's one of many seeming dichotomies found in the report, which is to be released today. Overall, the air we breathe is getting much better.
