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.

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.

Thomas Dickson III, 65, of Haddonfield, who loved and coached Haddonfield soccer, died Sunday, Feb. 28, from Lou Gehrig's disease. After coaching his children in a variety of youth sports, Mr. Dickson, known as "Chip," became freshman soccer coach at Haddonfield Memorial High School in 2002. Even after he was diagnosed with ALS, he continued as a varsity assistant, eventually showing up in a wheelchair for practices and games. By that point, the lessons he taught were off the field as well as on. "I can't imagine going through what he had to go through with more grace," said Haddonfield varsity soccer coach Ryan Nixon.

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.

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.

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.

WHEN Matt Albasi snagged credentials to the Democratic National Convention, he immediately saw something suspicious on the back of his Secret Service-issued pass. Albasi, publisher of Spirit News, a local paper based in Fishtown, noticed a slightly raised square indicating something inside the hard plastic. "I went full-on paranoid mode: 'It's gotta be a GPS or a microphone,' " Albasi said. Once he had used scissors to cut the pass open , Albasi found a small silver radio frequency identification - RFID - chip inside.

BY ALL ACCOUNTS, including his own, Jason Peters did not play very well last season. The $9.7 million question, which is the amount of Eagles salary-cap space he'll be occupying this season, is why. Did age finally catch up with the 34-year-old eight-time Pro Bowler? Was it the seasonlong battle with back and quad injuries? Or was he yet another victim of Chip Kelly's up-tempo offense? I haven't made a secret of the fact the last several months that I favor the Father Time explanation, with the injuries being one of the casualties of his advanced age. Not surprisingly, Peters disagrees with me. Speaking to reporters for the first time since last season following Thursday's first full-squad training camp workout, he blamed most of his struggles last season on Kelly's infatuation with tempo.

A QUICK story about Chip Kelly: Late last season, his dream team discombobulating in front of his very eyes, Kelly stepped to the outside podium for his midweek media availability. A colleague asked if I could place his recorder on the podium, where I was taking mine. But it slipped from my hands as I took it, and the batteries exploded from the machine as it hit the ground a few yards way. I scurried, red-faced, to collect it. Going back to Oregon and New Hampshire before that, Kelly is well known for planning his practice time down to the minute.

EVERYBODY KNOWS that Chase Daniel is a Doug Pederson "guy," brought in and given a three-year, $21 million contract despite an anorexic NFL playing resume because of his backwards-and-forwards knowledge of Pederson's offense and his ability to help teach it to others. Leodis McKelvin, Nigel Bradham and Ron Brooks all are in Philadelphia because they are Jim Schwartz "guys," brought in by the new defensive coordinator and expected to play important roles in his defense. Sports are not unlike politics in that, when there is a regime change, there usually is significant turnover.

NELSON AGHOLOR won't make excuses, so we'll make them for him. It wasn't easy to be a wide receiver in Chip Kelly's offense. It wasn't easy to be anything, really. No player has said that explicitly, but the space between their lines keeps getting easier to read the further out we get from the old ball coach's departure. Take Agholor, for instance. On Tuesday afternoon, the 23-year-old wideout deflected a number of questions that asked him to compare Doug Pederson's West Coast offense with Kelly's manic spread scheme.

THERE WAS a moment during Eagles practice on Tuesday when Carson Wentz lined up in the shotgun and tentatively pointed toward the middle of the defense, the way quarterbacks often do when they are identifying the MIKE linebacker. Whether that is actually what Wentz was doing is besides the point: What's relevant is that the young quarterback turned around and looked at coach Doug Pederson, who was standing behind him with a play sheet in his hand. Pederson nodded to confirm that the rookie was correct in whatever he was pointing at, and the play commenced.

On the left side of the room, Doug Pederson touted an "open dialogue" with Howie Roseman, who was the focal point of conflict for Kelly, and said he would like for his players to see him "like a son going to your dad.

BOCA RATON, Fla. - No matter whom you believe or choose not to believe, there aren't any heroes in the story of the dysfunctional Eagles front office of 2015. Chip Kelly, in his first extensive comments on the subject since being fired by Jeffrey Lurie, painted a picture of organizational discord in which the structure created by the Eagles owner essentially sabotaged his first season with final say over the 90-man roster. In Kelly's view, he wasn't responsible for the disastrous free-agent contracts handed out to DeMarco Murray and Byron Maxwell last offseason.
