Neighborhood gangs paint the walls in University City High School with graffiti, marking their turf inside the school. Students fight at any provocation. The adults in the school aren't lagging behind. Backbiting and shouting matches among staffers intensify every day. While the school is coming off wins as the city's public high school boys' and girls' basketball champions, its triumph is tarnished by the chaos that rules the day at University City. And despite repeated visits from School District honchos and city officials, bedlam continues.

Today, government means the delivery of benefits to the entitled, paid for by the overburdened. Too often, we as a society believe government owes us something, but we don't want to pay for it. How distant seems John F. Kennedy's appeal for a citizenry mindful of what it can do for its country. As a whole, these changes have produced a political system disengaged from the people, and a people disengaged from issues and politics. We are left with a political system that cannot lead and a public that cannot and will not follow.

Hammonton can pass. The Blue Devils have a strong-armed quarterback in 6-foot-3 junior Christian Mortellite. It's just that Hammonton, like most high school teams, prefers to pass on its own terms - as a change of pace, and in play-action situations. Timber Creek's defense wants to force Hammonton into long-yardage situations so the Chargers can unleash a pass rush that features tackle Greg Webb and ends Dajuan Drennon and Myles Nash. The key to this game could be the battle between Hammonton's synchronized, wing-T offense and Timber Creek's sturdy run defense.

Visiting justices from Canada's high court sat in on Monday's immigration arguments before the Supreme Court - and after their 90-minute education in the current state of American jurisprudence, our neighbors to the north would be forgiven if they had fantasies of building a border wall of their own. The Senate's refusal to confirm a replacement for the late Justice Antonin Scalia has left the U.S. high court evenly split and increasingly paralyzed....

Amid the suburban landscape of Riverside in Burlington County, there is, indeed, serenity. It began as a do-it-yourself project, initiated by my friends, Debbie and Sean, who were motivated to create a placid setting devoid of chaos and the concerns of the world surrounding them. Captivated by the mountains in West Almond, N.Y., which are a frequent camping destination for this family, myself included, Debbie and Sean created a backyard that brought back the sounds and smells of camp.

Finish this sentence: If you give a mouse a cookie. . . . Many Americans with children or grandchildren born since 1985 - and, most likely, the children themselves - know the answer. Obviously, the mouse will want a glass of milk, his demands will increase according to his erratic whims, and all manner of chaos will break out. The Arden Theatre is quite pleased to bring some of that chaos from the page to the stage with Jody Davidson's adaptation of Laura Joffe Numeroff's ubiquitous picture book.

DESPITE FIERCE competition from a colorful Rogues Gallery that is arguably the best in comics, The Joker will continue to stand alone as Batman's No. 1 adversary. "That seems to be the case," said Image Comics' Erik Larsen. "Not for any thematic reason - he's not a mirror image of Batman or any of that nonsense - it's more a sense of him being the coolest character of the lot. " "No doubt," said 12 Gauge Comics' Keven Gardner. "Batman is order and The Joker lives to create chaos.

Man Man don't so much create order out of chaos as harness chaos' power in the service of euphoria. Singer Ryan Kattner, a.k.a. Honus Honus, calls it "structured chaos," and the Philadelphia band's live shows are notorious for creating visceral, communal experiences. "I think that connection [with the audience], for us, is a mission statement and is really important," Kattner says from Los Angeles, where he was working on a video for the album Life Fantastic 's "Piranhas Club.

Like some unfailing karmic process, chaos follows calamity in India. Over the past week and more, the country has repeatedly been told that it is well nigh impossible to predict an earthquake. Fair enough - but whatever happened to the crisis management drill? [Throughout the crisis,] information has been slow to flow. Till early afternoon on January 26, the government was talking of "200-odd people" having died. . . . The National Centre for Calamity Management, which should have become the nodal agency within minutes of the seismic storm, is a body that exists only in policy proposals.

The bombed-out mega-manse that gives the documentary Gunner Palace its name belonged to Saddam Hussein's son Uday in the days before the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq. Once a shining monument of Elvis-like excess, now ransacked and rubbled, the Hussein compound became the home base for the 2/3 Field Artillery, the Army unit known familiarly as the "Gunners. " In September 2003, four months after President Bush declared an end to "major combat" in Iraq, filmmaker Mike Tucker settled in with the soldiers, riding along on patrol, ducking for cover when bullets flew.

When Deputy Fire Chief Anthony Sneidar arrived at the scene of the fatal Amtrak derailment last year, he was blocked by a swarm of police vehicles. It had been 15 minutes since Train 188 had crashed rounding the Frankford Curve in the city's Port Richmond section. Despite the live wires on the tracks, Philadelphia police officers were extricating the wounded from the wreckage. Sneidar was there to bring order to the chaos by seeing that victims were rapidly assessed and taken by ambulance to the right trauma center for their needs.

This is how confident Donald Trump's Pennsylvania supporters are that he'll coast to victory Tuesday: Confident enough to spend the final stretch mastering the impenetrable rules that govern the Republican National Convention, lining up hundreds of poll workers, and strategizing about their real challenge - getting voters to cast primary ballots next week for pro-Trump delegates. "He's going to win the popular vote without question," said Phyllis Zemble, a former Lower Merion Township commissioner and Democrat who turned Republican to vote for Trump.

THE PERPETUALLY congested lanes of the Vine Street Expressway were transformed into a terrifying hellscape yesterday morning, as flames devoured a school bus' skeleton and Pennsylvania State Troopers exchanged gunfire with an armed suspect. The hair-raising episode began with a routine car stop over an expired registration tag, and ended with Trooper Patrick Casey taking a bullet to the shoulder - and a 17-year-old alleged gunman behind bars. The teenager, identified Wednesday morning as Giovanni Cotto, was charged as an adult last night with attempted murder, aggravated assault, assaulting a law-enforcement officer and related offenses.

Colwyn Borough measures just a third of a square mile, but it might have more problems per square foot than any other town in the nation. It has virtually no tax base. It is severely in debt. It is the subject of a large-scale investigation by the Delaware County district attorney. On Thursday, Colwyn added two more issues: It no longer has a mayor. And it's missing three of its seven council members. Hours before state financial planners were scheduled to meet with residents to present a long-term recovery plan, the mayor and two Borough Council members resigned, citing a need for extreme action to protect the town from "future destruction.

JOINT PRACTICES are "organized chaos," Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins said after the first of the three days of welcoming the Baltimore Ravens to NovaCare, in advance of Saturday's preseason game. "Both teams are teetering on being under control, but out of control at the same time. It's real thin ice, but I think cooler heads prevail. We're all professionals. We're out here trying to compete. I think we all have that understanding and mutual respect for each other, and we're out here just trying to get work done.

Actor Alan Rickman helms A Little Chaos , his second film as a director, with Kate Winslet as a royal landscaper helping to design the vast gardens of Versailles in the court of King Louis XIV (played by Rickman himself). Winslet's powerhouse performances holds up A Little Chaos , a movie that cannot necessarily support her inherent force. She plays Sabine de Barra, a fictional landscaper employed by André le Nôtre, mastermind behind Versailles' gardens. Matthias Schoenaerts, as le Nôtre, is getting mileage out of costume drama this summer: He also stars in the Thomas Hardy adaptation Far From the Madding Crowd . De Barra's life is not the only fudged part of history.

Barbara Butler takes home $250 a week for driving a school bus with blind children to a Catholic day school part time. Her health insurance premiums are $517 a month. She pays 76 cents, and Washington picks up the rest. The Supreme Court is expected to rule within a week on whether that subsidy, a key part of President Obama's health-care law, is legal in 34 states. If it decides not, then the West Philadelphia resident's premiums would swell to half her income. "Fortunately for me, I'm pretty healthy," Butler said.

  Dysfunction evidently rules again in tiny Colwyn Borough, Delaware County. On Thursday night, its manager was fired at a raucous council meeting; she disputed the action and then locked herself in Borough Hall overnight. "I don't believe I am out of a job," Paula Brown said Friday. The latest episode followed a contentious council meeting during which Brown and council members shouted at each other and traded accusations - and they still don't agree on the outcome.
