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.

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.

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.

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.

BOCA RATON, Fla. - On the right side of the room, Chip Kelly indicated he was limited by a "weird situation" last season in Philadelphia, and asserted that despite complaints about aloofness from some former players, he wasn't going to change his approach in San Francisco. 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. " Two tables at the NFC coaches' breakfast Wednesday, the final day of the NFL meetings.

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.

There's a scene in the beginning of Flaked , the new dramedy on Netflix from Arrested Development star Will Arnett and Mark Chappell (the creators behind the cringeworthy yet funny Brit-com The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret ) that immediately turned me off. I kept watching the show, but only out of love for you, dear reader. Arnett's Chip is in recovery, discussing his mantras and way of life with two beautiful women half his age. So far, the series has shown us that Chip isn't a great guy. He rides a bike because a drunken-driving accident left another person dead.

THE EAGLES, who underwent a significant roster purge a year ago, quickly followed by a free agent binge, are at it again, under new management. How many purges and binges and binges and purges before the roster develops serious body-image issues? Across the land, Eagles fans are ecstatic, because the most disappointing figures from last season's train wreck will officially be gone when the league year starts at 4 p.m. Wednesday - DeMarco Murray, Byron Maxwell, and Kiko Alonso, in trades with the Titans and the Dolphins.

Asked last month what role, if any, he had in signing Byron Maxwell and DeMarco Murray, Howie Roseman avoided piling on Chip Kelly and steered his answer toward the future. If only Kelly was so kind when asked about Marcus Smith last March. "I think the best thing we can do is just move forward this year," the Eagles vice president of football operations said at the NFL scouting combine, "and talk about what's going on this offseason. " But in about five hours on Monday - the first day that teams could officially negotiate trades and free-agent acquisitions - Roseman's actions spoke clearly.

A YEAR AGO, the Eagles signed a shutdown corner who, it turned out, couldn't shut anyone down, and they traded their all-time leading rusher for a difference-making linebacker who ended up not making a difference. Then they signed the reigning NFL rushing leader, and that didn't work out very well, either. But it seems that when Howie Roseman moved his office back to the football operations area at NovaCare a few months ago, one of the tools Roseman brought back with him was a giant eraser.

INDIANAPOLIS - Four years ago, Andy Reid got fired by the Eagles and then hired by the Chiefs and immediately turned a 2-14 eyesore into an 11-5 playoff team. From the outside looking in, it seemed so easy. But Doug Pederson, who followed Big Red to Kansas City as his offensive coordinator, said Wednesday that appearances can be deceiving. "Our first year there with coach Reid, we tried to have some of that mentality where we're going to make the people there fit what we do," Pederson said at the NFL Scouting Combine.

TO BE FAIR, Chip Kelly was no monster. To be honest, Kelly would still be the Eagles' coach if he had won 10 games in 2015 instead of seven. To be frank, Kelly was less Captain Bligh than General Patton. Kelly was not maliciously abusive to his players and rebellious to his bosses; he was just uninterested in anything but running the football team, and running it his way. For a franchise that blossomed under a father figure such as Andy Reid, Kelly's abruptness and dismissiveness hindered him. When Kelly unseated homegrown favorite Howie Roseman as general manager, he betrayed the sense of togetherness owner Jeffrey Lurie spent 20 years fostering.
