Even with tousled hair and dots of milk of magnesia priming her face for a chocolate foundation, Raelia Lewis is prettier in person than she is on television. Lewis of North Philadelphia, one of 14 finalists on this season's America's Next Top Model , was getting runway-ready on Wednesday to audition for the spring 2015 New York Fashion Week catwalk. The presentations start Thursday, and when they end next Thursday, more than 100 up-and-coming and established designers will have presented warm-weather trends in and around New York's Lincoln Center.

A worker died after he fell into a sugar hopper Monday afternoon at an industrial plant in Bucks County, authorities said. Janio Salinas Valerda, 50, of Edgewater, N.J., was pronounced dead at the CSC Sugar plant at 80 Roebling Rd. in Falls Township, said Joseph Campbell, the Bucks County coroner. The sugar hopper was not functioning correctly, and Valerda apparently was trying to unclog it with a large pole from a catwalk when he fell in, Campbell said. The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration was investigating.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Jonny Gomes hit a towering homer, Mike Leake pitched six strong innings and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Tampa Bay Rays, 5-0, on Monday night.

Brandon Phillips, who had four hits and two RBIs, added a run-scoring single off Jeremy Hellickson (7-7)

"We have one more stop before heading back to Izmir," said Ahmet, our tour guide. I was surprised, because I was ready to go back to the hotel. We had been touring the Turkish countryside for 10 hours, and my sweaty clothes and the dirt between my toes were making me very cranky. A shower was calling me and I needed a tall glass of cold water. No historical site or shop could be worth visiting at this time of day. I glanced at Amy, my college-age daughter sitting next to me in our chauffeur-driven car. I rolled my eyes, but I didn't say anything because I didn't want to insult the driver and our guide with my refusal.

Defensive end Jevon Kearse hammed it up while posing in the throwback uniform the Eagles will wear for their Sept. 23 home game, against the Detroit Lions, to celebrate their 75th anniversary this season. The uniform was yellow and blue, the colors of the inaugural Eagles team in 1933 after the Frankford Yellow Jackets went bankrupt. Kearse didn't care that he was used only as a model during yesterday's news conference at the NovaCare Complex detailing the ways the Eagles would commemorate the anniversary.

A father and his daughter are sitting in a picturesque green field, the father leaning against a tree while the daughter sits a few feet away, with the bright orange specks of butterflies circling her head. "What you thinking about, honey?" the father asks his daughter. "Butterflies," she replies. "What are you thinking about, Daddy?" "I'm thinking about butterflies, too," he answers. The little girl turns around, startled at her father's response. "But Daddy, aren't you worried about protecting your company and employees in the changing global economy?

Delaware River Port Authority officials insisted that the PATCO High-Speed Line is safe despite yesterday's smoky motor failure that forced 35 evacuated commuters onto a Ben Franklin Bridge catwalk. The 6 a.m. drama that spewed smoke and sparks from the front engine of the Philadelphia-bound three-car train had nothing to do with PATCO's aging fleet, officials said. No one was hurt. "I'm assuring the public that they are safe," said John J. Matheussen, chief executive officer of the authority.

Any mom can tell you that children's wear has been in flux for some time. It started when young girls aspiring to be Britney Spears gravitated toward all styles low and slinky. Then upper-middle-class mothers who fancied themselves designers retaliated, creating quaint and very expensive dresses that made Little House on the Prairie pinafores look racy. Families looking for a middle-ground look on a middle-of-the-road budget were stuck with boring jeans, button-down sweaters, and, how could we forget, $100 sneakers.

EVERYONE WITH a magic marker and a bullhorn knows the media is too liberal, too conservative, too homophobic, too pro-Gay, too Zionist, too anti-Semitic, too anti-Arab, too sexist, too ageist, too racist, etc. Well now you can add too "fattist" to the list. Says who? Says Roseanne. Because goodness knows she never got any press. It seems Rosie is ticked because no TV came to cover the Lane Bryant lingerie show (for women size 14 and above) she hosted last week in Manhattan.

The blaring music, the spectators peeking out of store windows, the excited screams of more than 500 would-be models. Jennifer Shapiro, merchandising manager for Seventeen magazine and judge of its "Trend Tour" model call, had experienced it all before. Still, one thing amazed her. "I can't get over the shoes!" she shouted, her voice almost overpowered by booming speakers that lined a makeshift catwalk inside Willow Grove Park mall Wednesday night. "I could never walk in those shoes.
