ATLANTA - Quite possibly the best pregame fan contest in baseball is held here at Turner Field. Normally once a homestand, three contestants and one Braves player participate in a closest-to-the-pin game. On Saturday, it was infielder Brooks Conrad's turn. They set up a small plot of turf in the on-deck circle and a flag in center field. Conrad took the high-iron club and hit the golf ball to within 15 feet of the pin. Usually the Braves player has the best shot. This time, two of the fan contestants couldn't even chip the ball out of the infield.

RE REP. BOB BRADY'S Oct. 8 letter editor regarding the Children's Health Insurance Program, for which the veto override has failed. Contrary to Congressman Brady's repeated implications, President Bush does not want to end the program. In fact, the president has endorsed a $5 billion increase in the program. President Bush vetoed the bill because Democrats in Congress want to expand the program by $25 billion. President Bush is simply being fiscally responsible. Because most Americans practice personal responsibility and want limited government, Congressman Brady's politicalization of the issue will backfire on the Democratic Party.

What began as a Deptford woman's "why not?" entry to a national potato chip contest has proved to be a moment of record in the annals of American snack history. Meneko Spigner McBeth's Kettle Cooked Wasabi Ginger chip proposal also has brought her national attention, $1 million, and possibly a new Audi. And there's the five-pound weight gain she jokes about. McBeth, 35, a Temple University Hospital medical-surgical nurse, was named the winner of the Frito-Lay "Do Us a Flavor" contest during a dinner in New York City on Monday evening.

If you think it's possible to create a one-size-fits-all chip for your television set that will screen out all the stuff you don't want your kids (or your dog) to watch, you obviously haven't strolled the snacks aisle at your supermarket lately. Low-salt. High-garlic. Blue corn. White corn. Do we really think a nation that can't agree on a recipe for tortilla chips is going to agree on the specifications for a V-chip? Here are just a few of the options we expect to see the next time we go shopping for a TV set: THE MOUNT AIRY LIBERAL CHIP How to serve it: Baked, not fried.

Gov. Wolf announced Thursday a series of small benefit upgrades for families with coverage though the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), effective Dec. 1. Changes include removal of limits on inpatient and outpatient stays for mental-health and substance-abuse treatment, and the end of outpatient co-payments for mental-health services. Vision care was broadened to cover more types of prescription lenses and tinting. CHIP has long been considered excellent insurance, and many of the changes will apply to small portions of the 148,000 children in the program.

With the enthusiasm of a pep rally, U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, Sen. Bob Casey, U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah, and other officials on Monday urged students at Furness High School in South Philadelphia to help spread the word about Pennsylvania's Children's Health Insurance Program. "I am asking you to be the messengers," Sebelius told about 400 students in the auditorium. As of last month, 28,261 children in Philadelphia were enrolled in CHIP, which provides health coverage to children and teenagers not eligible for government medical assistance.

Four House Democrats complained yesterday of potential national security problems in a federal deal to transfer next-generation computer chip-making technology to a consortium led by Intel Corp. The agreement, announced last month between the Department of Energy and Intel, gave the group the rights to a chip-manufacturing technique called extreme ultraviolet lithography, developed in government labs for defense use. The lawmakers expressed concern that such Japanese firms as Nikon would derive much of the benefit.

Wild Quail Country Club pro Joe Wollaston partnered with amateurs Bill Schaefer, John Kitchen, Wallace Collins and John Whitby for a first-place finish in the Philadelphia Section PGA Oldsmobile Scramble qualifying tournament yesterday at the Oak Terrace Country Club. They finished in a tie with two other teams at 12-under-par 59 and won a chip-off. Wollaston earned $1,300 from the $40,000 purse, and he and his partners qualified to play for the National Gross Championship Oct. 12-15 at Disney World in Orlando, Fla. Wilmington Country Club pro Chris Wagner also earned $1,300 when he and his partners finished first low net at 54; they earned the right to play for the National Net Championship at Disney World, Sept.

When I realized my daughter's health form for day camp hadn't been completed, I quickly made an appointment with her pediatrician and - with some prodding - got the completed form the same day. Mariah could enroll on time because I pushed to get her paperwork done. It was a last-minute hassle, but for nearly 300,000 Pennsylvania children - 10 million nationwide - seeing a doctor at all is an out-of-reach luxury, because they have no health insurance. More than nine in 10 uninsured children have working parents and 66 percent have at least one parent working full time year round.

For two decades, it has helped define Allyson Schwartz's political identity: She has billed herself as the "mother" of the state Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), which provides health coverage to children of the working poor. She has claimed to have "spearheaded" and "led the effort" to enact the program as a state senator. After joining Congress, Schwartz once called herself "the architect" of CHIP on the floor of the House. Now that she is running for governor, however, the Democrat has toned down her role in that 1992 bill, giving credit to others sometimes absent in past versions.

THE NARRATIVE has taken on a life of its own now, developed an extra set of legs, or at least extended the speed of the ones it had. Chip Kelly has no people skills. No, he treats his players as if they are still in college, not adults. He's a dictator. An autocrat. Stuck to an offensive philosophy the league's defensive coordinators have solved. No, he just wears out his defense with that breakneck offense. No, his pace is conducive to making mistakes, especially with the roster limits of the NFL. Creates mutinous situations with it even.

If Chip Kelly had any revelations after he was fired in the final week of his third season with the Eagles, he didn't reveal them on Wednesday during his introduction as San Francisco 49ers head coach. Kelly sounded like the same fast-talking, quick-thinking, wise-cracking coach that made his news conferences appointment viewing at times in Philadelphia. He thanked Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie during an opening statement, but he was very much in a different environment – pointing out a general manager who is a "football guy," with "synergy" in the building, and five Lombardi Trophies as the benchmark.

After the success of The Hangover , Zach Galifianakis could have spent the rest of his comedy career playing a detached-from-reality man-child in big-budget comedies. If it worked once in The Hangover (not to mention two sequels), why not keep the dough rolling in by playing the weirdo sidekicks of attractive celebs (such as Robert Downey Jr. in Due Date ) and comedy superstars (such as Will Ferrell in The Campaign )? But instead of playing the same character over and over (as his former costar Ferrell seems wont to do)

THE ROAD to Damascus apparently intersects with Pattison Avenue, we learned Tuesday, when introspective football pilgrim Howie Roseman finally emerged from a yearlong media hiatus. We met a chastened, humbled Howie, a guy who is now just all about relationships and people, and about helping the Eagles any way he can, Roseman said. It was a riveting performance, rivaled only by what took place on the opposite coast Wednesday, when Chip Kelly finally took the stage, nearly a week after being named head coach of the San Francisco 49ers.

Les Bowen: No champion, Chip It's an interesting question, because Chip Kelly might have sold himself to the 49ers as the guy whose system can turn Colin Kaepernick around, and maybe it can. If you get the quarterbacking part right, the rest usually follows. However, the post-Jim Harbaugh 49ers are widely considered one of the NFL's most dysfunctional franchises. Their roster is in tatters. Supposedly, Kelly just wants to coach now and won't be involved in personnel decisions (or at least, that's what he told the York family to get in the door)

Chip Kelly found a new job on the same day that the Eagles found Kelly's replacement. The San Francisco 49ers hired Kelly as their head coach on Thursday, giving Kelly a safe landing spot just hours before news broke that the Eagles will hire Doug Pederson. Kelly interviewed for the job last week and reportedly beat out Mike Shanahan for the position. The 49ers were the only team believed to interview Kelly. In three seasons with the Eagles, Kelly went 26-21. He won the NFC East in 2013 and had 10-win seasons in his first two years before slipping to 6-9 in 2015 after he was granted full control of the roster.

The NFL just became a more interesting place, and we have the San Francisco 49ers to thank for it. The league without Chip Kelly in 2016 would have been a bore. Now, we get to find out if his work with the Eagles was incomplete because he was stuck with statues at quarterback or if he was a socially dysfunctional know-it-all unable to adapt to the NFL game and its players. The continuation of the Kelly experiment would have been better performed in Tennessee - the home of Chip's beloved Marcus Mariota - but the 49ers are a solid second choice.

I walked into a bar-restaurant on Broad Street on New Year's Day looking for an old friend and instead I found our new mayor sitting by himself, surrounded by people who didn't recognize him and had never heard his name. Jim Kenney looked perfectly at ease in his anonymity at a place called Bliss. He sat at the elbow on the far end of the bar that faced the floor-to-ceiling windows along Broad Street and framed the passing string bands and fancy brigades like a huge-TV/video-screen tuned to the Mummers Channel.

Chip Kelly once called his offense a "See Coast" offense, partly in jest to counter the labels that had been attached to his scheme and partly to explain that the system had many facets. "Here's our offense. We run the 'See Coast offense,' " Kelly said during his first season with the Eagles. "If we see something, OK, and we like it, and we think it fits, we're going to run it. " Some of the best offensive minds cater their scheme to the skill set of their players and to counter defenses on a weekly basis.

Chip Kelly interviewed with the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday, according to multiple reports. It was Kelly's first known interview since the Eagles fired him last week. The 49ers fired Jim Tomsula on Sunday after a 5-11 season. They have 12 draft picks this year to go along with potentially $40 million in cap space. There is uncertainty at quarterback, where Colin Kaepernick was benched last season. If healthy and if the 49ers decide to keep him, Kaepernick could be the type of dynamic dual-threat quarterback that Kelly only briefly had in his offense in Philadelphia with Michael Vick.
