A question presented itself Wednesday in regard to those Haverford Township pols who have been handing out federal surplus cheese from their homes and campaign headquarters. Do they make the poor and elderly come around to the back door?

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.

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 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.

I crave hard cave-aged cheeses because of their complexity. But that complexity takes time - at least 60 days by law in the United States if it's made from raw milk, plus extra weeks to harmonize. But aging time, of course, costs money, both for producers and consumers. And raw milk cheeses can't be eaten by everyone (i.e. pregnant women). So Valley Shepherd Creamery's Eran Wajswol has come to a tasty compromise with a new cheese made in the Italian caciotta-style. His latest creation, called Nanticoke after one of New Jersey's Native American tribes, is made from 100 percent pasteurized sheep's milk cheese and finished within just 35 days, as opposed to the 90-plus typical for many of Valley Shepherd's other products.

All 78 Philadelphia Housing Authority Police Department officers will be equipped with body cameras on Tuesday, making the department the latest to employ the devices across its force. Kelvin Jeremiah, PHA president and chief executive officer, said he believes PHA is the nation's first housing authority to outfit all its officers with body cameras. "We believe strongly this is the wave of the future," Jeremiah said. "Police hold a position of public trust and we want to make sure they are using the awesome authority they have in a responsible way. " PHA Police Chief Branville Bard, who joined the department last year after a 21-year career with the Philadelphia Police Department, said his officers were "overwhelmingly pleased" about the cameras.

There is a wild-eyed look of mischief to the tousle-haired youth whose face is stamped on the rind of Chällerhocker. But that boy is the imaginary "cellar sitter" for which this cult cheese from Switzerland is named, and I could imagine looking a little loony, too, if I were locked up for 10 months of aging on a wooden shelf. The upside is that this Swiss cheese has fast become one of my favorites in the world. Cheesemaker Walter Rass at Kaserei Tufertschwil in the canton of St. Gallen created it in 2003 as a variation on classic Appenzeller (for which he is also renowned)

The long: Sometimes, you and your kid just need a buncha big, goofy belly laughs. This kooky musical version of the irreverent, Caldecott-winning storybook The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Fairy Tales, by Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith, mashes up the original title character with narrator Jack (as in, and the Beanstalk), Cinderella, the Ugly Duckling, and the Cow Patty Boy (another new invention). It also lets audience members in on every silly joke. The short: Like a wacky, G-rated version of Into the Woods.

It's full-on kidding season in Chester Springs, where precious little goats are being born every day to Catherine and Al Renzi's herd of Nubians at Yellow Springs Farm. When it comes to prize season, though, Yellow Springs is no joke. Their Cloud Nine goat cheese just took home first prize at the Pennsylvania Farm Show for the second consecutive year. This quarter-pound snowball of a cheese, hand-shaped instead of set into the usual geometric form ("We're artisans, I guess!" says Catherine)
