THE INSURANCE INSTITUTE for Highway Safety's recent report on red-light cameras on Roosevelt Boulevard supports our contention that motorists, no matter their age, are just kids at heart - they'll try to get away with as much as you let them. The cameras and extended yellow signals at the Grant Avenue and Red Lion Road intersections, two of the deadliest in the country, have led to a striking drop in red-light runners, the report said, from 251 violations per 10,000 vehicles in 2004, to 1.8 per 10,000 in 2006.

Few things are as fleeting as the sweetness of fresh mozzarella. The richness of its butterfat begins to fade literally within an hour or two of the moment it was turned into a milky white orb. And it's hard to find any fresher than those rolling off the imported mozzarella machine at Claudio's Caseificio in the Italian Market. "Mozzarella's like bread," says owner Sal Auriemma. "You don't buy it today to eat next week. " Auriemma and his sons, Claudio and Sal Jr., have perfected the delicate texture and lightly salted tang of their cheese since opening this annex to the family's cheese and import market four summers ago. Sliced into lusciously thick white rounds, I can think of no better homage to the blushing tomatoes and plumes of basil that make summer's farm-market bounty so fleeting, too. Fresh mozzarella costs $6.99 a pound at Claudio's Caseificio, 922 S. 9th St., 215-238-0435.

There is a pecorino for every mood in Italy, where the milk from sheep ( pecora ) is formed into hundreds of variations, from the famous hard grating cheese of Rome (Romano) to softer versions like foglie noce, a delicacy from Emilia-Romagna wrapped in walnut leaves. When I'm craving a simple snack, I find this Rustico studded with black peppercorns to be irresistible. It's firm but softer than Romano, and the nutty, waxy paste tastes all the creamier when your teeth crack through the musky spice of a peppercorn.

Move over wine and cheese. Beer and cheese are a match made in culinary heaven. "The carbonation in beer cuts through the richness of cheese," said Tria Fermentation School director Erin McLean. She offered these pairings for your next party: _ Robust dark imperial stout with a cow's milk bleu, Stilton or a sweeter Gorgonzola. _ Hoppy, citrusy India pale ale with aged farmhouse-style English or Vermont cheddar. _ Fruity, sweeter lambic with a rich triple crème or Brie. _ Malt-driven amber ale or German double bock with aged Gouda.

There are more than 100 cheese-makers in the province of Québec, the most of any in Canada, and they are producing some of the most exciting artisan cheeses in the New World, from washed-rind stinkers to creamy blues. That comes as no surprise, given the province's cheese-loving French DNA. Unfortunately, few of the best - especially those made from raw milk - are widely available in the States. That just means you'll have to visit some of the fine cheesemongers of Québec City.

One of summer's greatest culinary pleasures is food cooked on a grill, with backyard flames enhancing flavors like nothing else. But fire and hot coals can transform so much more than just burgers and dogs. Almost all the produce bursting from local farms and gardens can be cooked outside - creating flavorful fare from appetizers through desserts. Grilled whole, sliced, layered or wrapped, almost every vegetable and many fruits can be converted into tasty fare on a barbecue grill.

Backstory: Andrea Capecci and her brother Nicholas are new to Philly's growing lunch-truck scene. They opened earlier this year but spent a couple of years kicking around ideas before setting on Pbon's interesting mix of seafood and sausage, inspired by the Philadelphia natives' upbringing: frequent trips to Bridesburg with their grandmother for hard-shell crabs, and twice-a-week traditional Italian dinners whipped up by their mother (think plenty...

The humble mason jar has become the symbol of DIY culture, Pinterest aspiration, and nostalgia for homespun days of yore. Invented in Philadelphia in 1858 and revived by neo-food preservationists and Martha Stewart wedding pictorials circa the early aughts, the old-timey glass with the tin lid has become the go-to restaurant vessel for cocktails, single-serve cakes, and plain old tap water. Mason jars just seem to make everything look simple - in a good way. It's not only a matter of aesthetics, though.

"MILLION DOLLAR ARM" is a movie about pitching, but the baseball kind. Its putative hero is a sports agent, and its plot is about a marketing ploy. And although there've been good movies about sports agents before, "Million Dollar Arm" feels like "Jerry Maguire" by way of Jay Mohr's character. Jon Hamm plays JB Bernstein, an L.A. swell who drives a Porsche and lives on a property big enough to accommodate a guesthouse, where he stores Lake Bell, in case he runs short on models.

K&B AUTO-BODY shop, a family-owned business in Frankford, has a "friendly office staff" and prides itself on its "ability to offer quality work with excellent service," according to an online description of the company. Apparently co-owner William Cheeseman considered a police radio dispatcher to be part of the family, too. Dorian Parsley, 44, a 16-year veteran of the department, is accused by the feds of giving confidential police information - such as locations of auto accidents - to Cheeseman and two other tow-truck operators, Stepfon Flowers and Chad Harris, who at times worked for K&B. She allegedly did it in exchange for bribes, collecting thousands of dollars in cash, from February 2011 to December 2013, authorities say. The U.S. Attorney's Office yesterday announced the unsealing of an indictment Thursday against Parsley, of Philadelphia; Cheeseman, 42, of Delran, N.J.; Flowers, 24, and Harris, 22, both of the city.

Picture new grasses poking through soil, the first wildflowers sending out buds as thin as crepe paper. Then picture a barn animal let loose on the first spring pasture. Picture its eyes widening at the sight and smell of so many jewel-colored edibles - after four or five months of hay. The flavors of spring flora are tender and herbaceous - which is why cheese made from spring milk lives in a rarefied realm. Over the next few weeks, local cheese counters will set out an array of the supplest cheeses imaginable.
