Shareholders at Continental Airlines Inc. and UAL Corp. approve a deal to form the world's biggest airline. Continental officials announced preliminary results of voting during a shareholder meeting Friday in Houston. United shareholders approved it at a meeting near Chicago. The votes clear the way for the $3 billion stock swap to close in about two weeks. It likely will be some time before passengers notice much difference when they fly Continental or United. The combined airline will be called United and based in United's hometown of Chicago, run by Continental's CEO.

They came, they listened, and they caught some rays. More than 8,000 sun worshipers descended Sunday on West Chester's Everhart Park for the 11th annual Turk's Head Music Festival. Stretched out on beach towels and blankets, they basked in the sun while sampling tunes from 19 of the area's hottest bands. "You would have thought you were in the '60s there," said Kathleen McBratnie, director of the West Chester Recreation Department, which hosted the event. "It was just a real nice, laid-back day. " Along with the nine hours of music, the festival featured 75 booths with venders offering everything from beaded jewelry and incense to free health and stress screenings.

Zairian soukous star Kanda Bongo Man made his Philadelphia debut Tuesday at the North Star Bar by playing eight songs of roughly the same harmonic design, the same tempo and the same type of call and response between singers. There wasn't one dull moment. In other hands, such repetition would equal boredom. Kanda Bongo Man and his seven-piece outfit used the sameness to create an inescapable trance state in which the slightest rhythmic shift rippled with seismic significance, and dancing - or some kind of body movement - was mandatory.

ince moving to Los Angeles, guitarist and composer Skip Heller has made himself a cataloger of the eclectic. Without kitsch, the former Philadelphian has filled his jazz music with Mexican garage rock, oceanic exotica, klezmer, rockabilly, and cartoony film and TV soundtracks. "I'm not a big one for looking at other people's careers as a blueprint for my own," says Heller, 38, of his past music and collaborations. "You learn to trust your own taste. " No matter how his albums run - whether the creaky country of 1998's St. Christopher's Arms or 2002's blues-bouncing Homegoing - Heller, who will make a rare area visit Saturday at Ortlieb's, remains truest to one sound: the Philly jazz-organ combo he includes on each CD he records.

Daily News All-City Basketball Team THOSE FOLKS inclined to think of Maurice "Doo-Wop" Watson as a pump-machine scorer must not have witnessed the feature attraction of the recent Public League Coaches' All-Star Classic. Or any of his games, really. Yes, Watson scored 17 points that night. But he also dished 11 assists, posting many off passes that caused numerous eyebrows to raise. Nothin' new there. Watson, a 5-10 senior guard/whirlwind from Boys' Latin Charter, is our choice for Player of the Year in connection with the 2011-12 Daily News All-City Basketball Team.

WHILE COACH Dan Brinkley, of Prep Charter High, is positive Akhir "Geedy" Frazier would have played basketball at the Division I level, now those thoughts are secondary. "I'm much more fortunate to have met him than to have coached him," a sobbing Brinkley said yesterday. "This was one great kid. For all the people who knew him, this is hitting us like 9/11. " Frazier, 16, a rising junior combo guard, died late Wednesday night at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, 4 days after removing himself from a neighborhood league game at Hank Gathers Rec Center, 25th and Diamond, and collapsing into the arms of that team's coach as he approached the sideline.

WHEN CRAIG BERUBE plugged Scott Hartnell to play alongside Wayne Simmonds and Brayden Schenn last week, the critics came out of the woodwork to point out that it's a line full of similar playing styles. Berube does not deny that. In fact, that's what he likes about his newest combination. Last night, against the Capitals, they also happened to be one of the Flyers' best lines - until Schenn left the game late in the second period after a nasty charge from Tom Wilson. "It's a big line," Berube said.

THE MAYOR and City Council agree that the school district needs more money. After that, they part ways - once again. Mayor Nutter has proposed three solutions to the district's request for $60 million: increase delinquent tax collections to raise $28 million; up the across-the-bar drink tax from 10 percent to 15 percent to raise about $22 million; impose a $2-a-pack local tax on cigarettes sold in Philadelphia to raise $45 million this year....

For those of us whose packing includes a just-in-case stash of dining utensils, here's an excellent alternative to raiding the kitchen drawers or making due with those awful plastic knife-fork-spoon sets you get at carryout places. Zelco offers Mangia!, a lightweight, stainless-steel flatware set made to be mobile. The fork and spoon nest together in a slot in the knife handle. A sturdy plastic snap-on cover holds the combo firmly in place and keeps the business end of the utensils clean in transport and storage (only the knife handle is left exposed)

THE ASSIGNMENT was to decide on the five best Big 5 guard combinations and what made them so good. After contemplating the magnitude of that task, I made a decision. I would only consider the combos I have seen in my quarter-century of covering the Big 5, with a nod toward the great combos that played long before I saw my first City Series game. I was not thinking I would take one combo from each school, but that is exactly how it came out, again with a look back at history, concentrating on all Big 5 players and Player of the Year winners.

TUESDAY marked the first time John Davis had to walk through the halls at Ss. Neumann-Goretti High coming off a Catholic League basketball loss. Enjoyable, it wasn't. "The first look on all the kids' faces was disappointment, like we'd really let the school down," Davis said. "Then we were getting the questions, mostly like, 'How could that have possibly happened? . . . What was up with you guys?' "All day, I was doing a lot of soul-searching. I was thinking about the game from the time it started to the time it ended.

Tylor Love looks like a shortstop and acts like a shortstop. He's rangy, sure-handed, a quiet leader with his teammates' complete trust. Nick Tierno looks like a second baseman and acts like a second baseman. He's quick, athletic, and a little louder than his buddy on the other side of the bag. Put the two of them together on a baseball field, and Eastern coach Rob Christ hears a symphony inspired by their synchronicity. "It's artistry," Christ said of his double-play combination.

SINCE HIS disposition is permanently stationed on the blinding side of sunny, Tyrell Long would have been cool with mostly-a-spectator status through his entire sophomore basketball season. Playing is a whole lot more enjoyable, though, and when you can wind up being a star in a game that goes down in history . . . Euphoria, anyone? Bishop McDevitt High now owns a second postseason win in 49 years of Catholic League hoops membership, and Long, a 6-4, 180-pound forward, was prominent in its attainment.
