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.

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.

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.

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.

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 hit that Sam Bradford took at his knees from Baltimore's Terrell Suggs after a handoff in Saturday's preseason game was legal even though a penalty flag was thrown. The NFL's head of officiating, Dean Blandino, told the NFL Network that the play was "not a foul" if it's a read-option and the quarterback is not in a passing posture or out of the play. But Eagles coach Chip Kelly thought that it was, in fact, a foul, and that Bradford was not an option to run on the play. Kelly has not spoken to Blandino or anyone in the league about the issue.

BACK IN high school, Sam Bradford was a smooth two-guard on an AAU team that featured Blake Griffin, so he is well-aware of the proper way to operate a fastbreak offense against an overmatched "D. " "Lob city," the quarterback said Saturday night when asked to put into words his personal philosophy on sharing a playing surface with a human being capable of dunking over a midsize sedan. Two hours earlier, Bradford led the Eagles on their own version of the fastbreak: a frenetic, 12-play charge down the field against a Ravens defense that might have backed up all the way to Baltimore if not for a touchdown that relieved them of their duty to keep pretending to try. Over the course of just 3 minutes and 55 second of game clock, the Eagles used four different personnel packages, employing the same one on consecutive plays just four times.

Chip Kelly has done some things slowly this preseason. The Eagles coach decided there was no need to rush Sam Bradford and his twice surgically repaired left knee back onto the playing field, which is why the quarterback sat out the preseason opener last Sunday against Indianapolis. Running back DeMarco Murray, the man who was just eight rushing attempts short of becoming the sixth player in NFL history to carry the ball 400 times in a season last year with Dallas, also was a spectator against the Colts as well as for a good portion of Kelly's third training camp, which came to an official close Friday.

Earl Wolff continues to miss practice because of knee soreness, and the third-year safety has had trouble getting healthy from an injury that first occurred in 2013. He ended last season on injured reserve and missed much of the spring while recovering. The right knee injury still plagues him during training camp. "He says he can't run with his knee," coach Chip Kelly said Tuesday. A fifth-round draft pick in 2013, Wolff showed promise as a rookie but has not done enough to secure a roster spot.

THERE IS A strong argument to be made that the local press already has written more than enough about DeMarco Murray's practice usage, and as a member of said press, that makes it my sworn duty to write even more about it. But I'm having a lot of trouble working myself up into a lather about the whole thing, which generally is not a difficult thing for me to do. Correct me if I'm wrong, but there seems to be little dispute that . . . ...

DeMarco Murray did not play Sunday in the Eagles' preseason opener against the Indianapolis Colts. Murray and coach Chip Kelly said last week that Murray is not injured even though he had an uneven practice schedule. "We knew we were going to go out and try to work him out a little pregame and get ready to go play the Ravens" this Saturday, Kelly said. Kelly said that sitting Murray was his decision and that Murray would practice on Tuesday. "I held him back," Kelly said when asked again why Murray didn't play.

DeMarco Murray's on-again, off-again practice schedule is not his decision. It's Chip Kelly's decision. Kelly made that clear on Friday, when he said he's trying to manage Murray's workload after the high-priced running back led the NFL in carries last season. Kelly said Murray is not injured. "He's coming along," Kelly said. "He's done a lot of different things. We're trying to get him acclimated. He also carried the ball more than anybody in the National Football League last year, so we are trying to integrate him into what we are doing.

Above all, Chip Kelly enjoys fitting together the puzzle pieces that form a football team, but the process of doing so sometimes seems to just create more puzzles. He might have the solution to all of them, but the rest of us will just have to wait and find out. Chip isn't really saying. There were a number of puzzles to consider on Wednesday as the Eagles bounded through the shimmering heat at the NovaCare Complex for another day of training camp with the start of the regular season just one month away.

THE ANSWER was brief, but it was delivered in a heartfelt tone, with eye contact toward the questioner. "I hope not," Riley Cooper said, after he was asked whether he thinks Chip Kelly's image problems started two years ago, when he kept Cooper in the wake of a controversy over a racial epithet captured on video. Cooper had paused for several minutes to talk to reporters about his former college roommate, Tim Tebow, and other matters, a rare occurrence in this camp - Cooper has avoided cameras and recorders.
