No one was evacuated, but nearby blocks of 7th and Filbert Streets were closed, as the bomb squad checked out the package. The all-clear was declared at 9:39 a.m. Contact staff writer Peter Mucha at 215-854-4342 or pmucha@phillynews.com .

One day last summer, Janet Meyers walked into a West Philadelphia store, looking for greeting cards. But a coffee mug grabbed her. A coffee mug mugged her. On the side of the mug, an elephant was lying in a hammock. "I exercise," the elephant was pictured as saying, "as much as the next guy. (Provided the next guy is a fat, lazy slob!)" Meyers did not laugh. "I saw the mug," she said in an interview yesterday, "and I was furious. " Meyers happens to be Philadelphia chapter chairperson for the National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance (NAAFA)

A public works employee is suing the township to get his job back and to be compensated for stress that resulted from mistreatment, including, he contends, an incident in which another employee wiped a dead mouse around the rim of his coffee mug. Robert W. Battersby, a 14-year employee of the Public Works Department, contends that his trouble started in 1998, when he tried to inform Township Manager Florence Ricci that residential driveways on...

Nicky Scarfo was not famous for his sense of humor, but apparently he had one. He called his Florida house "Casablanca South," and the boat he kept there "Casablanca: Usual Suspects. " He had a coffee mug with the inscription: "Honesty pays. But it doesn't pay enough. " The four-bedroom, five-bathroom home at 3100 NE 47th St. in Fort Lauderdale, used for rest and recreation by the ex-Philadelphia mob boss and his pals from 1985 until he was sent to federal prison forever, has now been removed from mob history.

It was encouraging to see so many segments of American society contributing to make Earth Day a success. But how much of the celebration was hype? Was it just another Big Event? What will happen if everyone who went to an Earth Day fair bought a beer mug and a T-shirt, then headed home to pick up where they left off, waiting for the Fourth of July? We can't afford to let that happen. Earth Day was a beginning, a chance to make a conscious decision to change the way we live now, to save the Earth for future generations.

The Flyers finally staggered across the NHL trading deadline, but not until general manager Bob Clarke made his 11th and 12th deals of the season. There probably is no truth to the rumor that team personnel had to pry Clarke's fingers from his phone to keep him from frantically trying to dispatch more players, despite the embargo. When the team gathers for practice this morning, there will be eight skaters, plus goalie Ron Hextall, who took the ice last spring when the Flyers were eliminated from the playoffs by Buffalo.

Doors are often open in the 2900 block of D Street, a West Kensington block where neighbors know one another by name. So it was not unusual for St. Joseph's Hospital nurse Andrew "Drew" Orr, 42, and his family to take advantage of a cool breeze by closing only a screen door. But on Saturday two armed men also took advantage of the open door. The men entered the home at about 1:30 p.m. and demanded money, police said. Orr, at home with his wife and two stepchildren, tried to wrestle a gun from one of the men. He was shot twice and killed.

Los Angeles coroner's office spokesman Ed Winter said Goodman initially told authorities her husband had fallen.

CASPER, Wyo. - Police released more details Saturday of a grisly murder-suicide at a Wyoming community college, saying a man shot his father in the head with a bow and arrow in front of a computer-science class not long after fatally stabbing his father's live-in girlfriend at their home a couple of miles away. Computer-science instructor James Krumm, 56, may have saved some of his students' lives Friday by giving them time to flee while trying to fend off his son, Christopher Krumm, 25, of Vernon, Conn., Casper Police Chief Chris Walsh said.

A 30-year-old isn't over the hill, but may need a little jolt of something extra to get it to the next level. That's true for people - and with races, too. The Scott Coffee Moorestown Rotary 8K, a 31-year-old race in South Jersey, is getting that jolt this year by re-branding its race to hopefully attract and embrace new runners for its June 6 event. "We can't have alcohol in Moorestown but we can have coffee," said Bob Bickel, who is part of the race organization team. The race started out as the Moorestown Rotary 8K. "Scott Coffee" was added to the name after cofounder Scott Coffee died in 2006.

WITH PLENTY of preening self-portraits and pointless chatter with friends, 17-year-old Nasheen K. Anderson's Twitter feed at first looks like that of any typical teenager. But it doesn't take long before you find some jaw-dropping stuff. In one photo Anderson posted, a cat rests its head on a man's erect penis. Another shows a woman squirting milk from her naked breast into a coffee mug. Others show extreme close-ups of women's naked genitalia, Anderson flashing gang signs or showing a handgun jammed beneath a mattress, and a "family photo shoot" of a smiling woman pointing a handgun at four beaming school-age children.

THERE WILL be a new sheriff in NovaCareland in a few weeks, and one of the first things he will do after calling 1-800-MATTRES and putting the framed picture of the wife and kids he will never see on his office credenza, is to fill up his coffee mug, grab the remote, put his feet up on his desk and watch the 16 disaster movies produced and directed by Andy Reid and his coaching staff this season, including Thursday's night's 34-13 turnoverfest....

YOU PROBABLY give little thought to the mug that holds your morning cup of joe. For some, that vessel is a work of art unto itself. On Thursday morning, the Clay Studio, a gallery and retail space in Old City dedicated to handmade ceramics, hopes to change the way some local coffee drinkers think about their own usual mugs. During the studio's Guerrilla Mug Assault, volunteers will gather at six secret locations to surprise morning commuters by replacing their usual cup with a one-of-a-kind handmade mug. Five hundred mugs crafted by 50 artists, many from the Philadelphia area, will be given away.

My mother was constantly in motion. In the evenings, she would make our clothes at the dining room table, the sewing machine whirring late into the night. The following morning, all evidence of the nighttime sewing would have disappeared, except for the new pair of pajamas waiting on the table. Every day, Mom would do laundry, wash dishes, wipe countertops, vacuum. At least once a month, she would run a cloth doused in Liquid Gold over the faux wood of the kitchen cabinets.
