Chalk up another fine performance and another victory to Andy Moog, the NHL's top career winner among active goaltenders. Moog gained his 364th career victory with a 25-save performance as the Dallas Stars beat the visiting Anaheim Mighty Ducks, 3-1, last night. "I thought we had a lot of pressure in the first two periods, but Andy Moog was outstanding," Mighty Ducks coach Ron Wilson said. "Then in the third period, we couldn't get anything going. It was a combination of their defense and we were out of gas. " The Dallas defensemen contributed a goal and three assists while holding the Mighty Ducks' high-scoring duo of Paul Kariya and Teemu Selanne without a point.

Connor Logan's schedule for Wednesday was packed - go to court for drawing chalk figures on a street in Doylestown Borough, then head off to college for freshman year.

Borough police withdrew their charges of criminal mischief against Logan, 18, of Doylestown Township, and a 17-year-old friend from the borough, after reviewing the case, Lt. Patrick Penecale said Friday. The two young men were given tickets after an officer came across them drawing figures of sea turtles and a whale on North Clinton Avenue.

David H. Gehman, 80, a chalk artist who mesmerized audiences across the state as he drew large, colorful images of Jesus's Resurrection and other religious scenes, died Saturday of pancreatic cancer at his home in Shillington, Berks County. For the last 30 years, Mr. Gehman, a former carpenter, traveled to churches, Masonic halls and Rotary Clubs to deliver a spiritual message with pastel and fluorescent chalks. Mr. Gehman usually took about 35 minutes to finish a 40-by-54-inch drawing of the Resurrection on heavy gray paper.

What was billed as the hottest race in Haverford Township cooled as Election Day progressed, and incumbent Republican John Genthert soundly defeated Karl H. Freas, a former commissioner hoping to regain his First Ward seat. In an unofficial count, Genthert had 1,446 more votes than Freas, who tallied 933. It was the second time the two candidates have clashed. In 1983, Genthert skimmed by Freas by 71 votes. The closest race, it turned out, was in the Fifth Ward, where former township solicitor Kenneth Clouse defeated his Democratic opponent Denzil Turton by 412 votes, 938 to 526. In three other contests, Republicans trounced opponents by wide margins, bringing joy to the heart of township Republican leader Joseph Kelly, who is both a township and a Delaware County commissioner.

Doylestown police said Thursday that they had dropped charges against two teens who doodled on the street with chalk. Police Chief James Donnelly said that the drawings did not break the law, the Doylestown Intelligencer reported. He said Thursday that offending images would have to be "indelible and financially costly to remove. " Police had issued citations to Connor Logan, 18, and a 17-year-old friend this month for drawing a whale and sea turtles on a street downtown. Logan said he found the chalk in a parking lot and thought the drawings were "harmless.

I can't say that I was completely disappointed as the driving rain threatened to cancel my kids' ball games the other night. Scheduled as the game was to compete against the American Idol finale, even a good parent must occasionally make choices. It wasn't only the face-off between Ruben and Clay that I looked forward to. I also savored a night free of watching softball on a cold, rainy evening at a field in another township. I longingly imagined an evening free of carpooling my three kids in three different directions.

SADLY, the chart to the right is no surprise. For some time now, this page and other voices have been warning that Philadelphia was heading for a bloodier, more murderous year than last. And this week, we were proven right. Would that it were not so. As of late last night, the total number of homicides in Philadelphia was 336, sharply outpacing not only the number from last year at this date, but all of 2004. And we still have a month-and-a-half to go. Each year, city leaders from City Hall to the police commissioner's office to Harrisburg politicians have promised solutions.

ATLANTIC CITY - This is a place that specializes in the ephemeral. Sand sculpting. Bathing beauties crowned one moment, dethroned the next. Temporary art parks built on borrowed empty casino lots. The summer season. And now, chalk art. Situated on Indiana Avenue near what is perhaps the most ephemeral thing of all - the eroding shoreline - artists from around the world are in Atlantic City this week for a 3D Chalk Art Festival. With chalk and tempera paint, they are creating works that, when viewed through a lens from a fixed point (marked by the artists with tape or a footprint)

The unsubstantiated "gateway drug" theory has been used to justify draconian measures against marijuana use on the grounds that it leads inexorably to hard-core drug addiction. Now authorities in Doylestown have brought us a new but related concept: the gateway doodle. Doylestown police recently cited two local teenagers for chalk drawings on a borough street, apparently on the hypothesis that such activities begin a slippery slope toward spray-painting railcars with gang signs. Police Chief James Donnelly told the Doylestown Intelligencer that even though the drawings in question innocently depicted a whale and sea turtles, they could be related to more obscene chalk drawings perpetrated about town.

Question: I have a home, built about 1950, that has tin siding. Can or should this siding be repainted (and how?), or is it best to remove it and install new siding, such as vinyl? Answer: I've seen a lot of evidence that tin siding can be repainted, although I haven't found much information on how to do it. I had tin gutters — actually terne, a zinc/tin alloy — on my turn-of-the-20th-century former house. The experts recommended Tin-O-Lin, which I bought at a Philadelphia roofing supplier, a slow-drying linseed oil-based primer and finish coat recommended for spot priming exposed and rusted areas.

IT WAS a typical summer Saturday night on South Street, filled with shoppers and revelers and at least one artistic woman drawing vivid, hippy patterns on the sidewalk with chalk. The artist, Emily Hamilton Epstein, wasn't doing anything wrong on June 19, 2010, when Police Officer William J. Gress came around, her attorney told the Daily News. "She hadn't done anything wrong and we're very concerned about an officer who's arresting people for activities that clearly aren't illegal," Paul Messing said.
