DOES anybody care about the little guy? The guy who's just getting by, paycheck to paycheck, trying to make ends meet? I don't think so. He's paying higher prices for cars, appliances and other necessities. Huge amounts of interest on a variety of loans, including his mortgage. I'm sure predatory-lender lobbyists are at this very moment pushing a bill making pay-day lending in Philadelphia legal at an annual rate of 450 percent and higher! Some even as high as 900 percent.

The Phillies, through Friday, had scored three or fewer runs in 75 games this season, which is by far the most during manager Charlie Manuel's six seasons as manager. The good news for the Phillies is that they were better than ever at winning games when they scored three or fewer runs, going 24-51 in those games. Here's a season-by-season breakdown of that statistic during Manuel's tenure as manager: - Bob Brookover 2005          13          18          20          9       60       11-49 2006          21         20          10          3       54      8-41 2007          20          14          8         3       45      4-41 2008          23          20         8          8       59      12-47 2009          20         17         13         7      57      10-47 2010          24          17          23        11    75       24-51

A Navy officer has warned the Horsham Township Planning Commission that approving plans for an office complex near the flight path of jets at the Naval Air Station in Willow Grove would be potentially dangerous. Lt. Cmdr. Michael J. Zook pleaded with the commission for several minutes Tuesday night before the members endorsed the final plans submitted by Clifford Zimmerman, construction manager of Pitcairn Properties. The vote was 4-2. Pitcairn Properties of Jenkintown wants to build a 110,000-square-foot, three-story office complex on 10 acres at 300 Horsham Rd. The property is part of a 54-acre tract near the station and owned by the Friends' Committee since the mid-1700s.

The Council Rock school board approved a new three-year, multimillion dollar bus contract with Laidlaw Inc. at its meeting Monday night, but the way the board negotiated the contract did not sit well with some taxpayers. "I'm uncomfortable seeing that this is on this (agenda) without open discussion of who will pay the bill," said Marilyn Larson of Newtown. Larson said she was concerned that the board, by becoming "locked in" to a three-year contract, would limit its options when considering other spending needs.

For weeks, this day has been discussed by basketball fans. Theories have been offered, bets have been made. As today drew closer, the question was being asked with more frequency: "What do you think is going to happen when big Mo comes to town?" For hoop connoisseurs, it is a tasty morsel on the league docket.

East Whiteland Township Planning Commission members voiced concerns this week about the entrances, exits and internal traffic patterns planned for Westgate Plaza Shopping Center and the Great Valley Corporate Center East. Planning Commission Chairman Ronald Knabb said the main concern at Westgate Plaza was a proposed loading bay for part of the shopping complex. Tractor- trailer trucks would have to maneuver in a 20-foot-wide area and back up into a blind corner, he said. Knabb, at a planning meeting Monday, said that a 60-foot area was needed and that the blind corner posed a danger.

Amid the chaos of the Eagles' special teams this season, there have been two constants - punter Tom Hutton and kicker Gary Anderson. Lately, though, one of them has been missing - Anderson's reliable kicking. He was wide left Sunday on a 32-yard field goal against the Seattle Seahawks. Anderson's latest miss means that he is now 1 of 4 in field-goal attempts over his last four games. His previous field-goal attempt, a 41-yarder against the Redskins, was wide right. "It's a concern," Eagles coach Ray Rhodes said yesterday.

PRESIDENT OBAMA will visit Philly today to discuss criminal justice reform at the national NAACP convention, but attendees yesterday got a taste of what he might say from a parade of speakers who lamented mass incarceration and systemic problems rooted in America's racist history as the chief obstacles to true equality. In a speech that was equal parts pep rally and impassioned call to action, NAACP President Cornell William Brooks told his listeners that their activism is more important than ever.

After Alexa Middleton finished taking the SAT on June 6, she flopped onto her parents' bed: "I'm done. I did it. " She would tell her mother later, "I don't want to take that test ever again. " But the 17-year-old rising senior at Abington Friends School in Jenkintown would get an awful surprise a few days later. Because of a printing error, the College Board, which owns the SAT, announced that it would not score two sections of the test - one in reading, one in math - given to 487,000 students in the United States on that Saturday.

SIXERS PRESIDENT and general manager Sam Hinkie did not look, act or sound like a man who was trying to run a shell game. Conspiracy theorists had looked at the timing of the Sixers' announcement that redshirt rookie center Joel Embiid was not healing as well as anticipated from the foot injury and surgery that cost him last season and determined that it was a smokescreen to hide Hinkie's true intentions for Thursday's NBA draft. Yesterday, that was put to rest. The concerns about Embiid are all too real.

The closing of the women's jail in Burlington County this week is sparking concerns that the inmates' relocation to an Atlantic County facility could hamper crucial visits with their families and lawyers. Starting Monday, about 70 female inmates will be moved from the Correction and Work Release Center in Pemberton Township to the Atlantic County Justice Facility in Mays Landing, more than 40 miles away. "This is a substantial distance for people who are being charged in Burlington County," said Kevin Walker, an assistant public defender in Trenton who oversees regional offices.

" An Alabama native with a salt-and-pepper beard, Newhouse served in the military and moved around the South before starting at Sikorsky Global Helicopter in Coatesville eight years ago.

When the Somerset County prosecutor concluded in March that Cooper Health System CEO John P. Sheridan Jr. killed his wife, set their house on fire, and then committed suicide, it reignited concerns about the competency of New Jersey's medical examiner system. By ruling the deaths a murder-suicide, the prosecutor's office closed the high-profile case. But the couple's four sons, who believe both their parents were murdered in September in their Montgomery Township home, have asked the state Attorney General's Office for a new investigation.

TRENTON - New Jersey lawmakers introduced legislation Monday that would ask voters to amend the constitution to allow the state to expand gaming to North Jersey. The amendment, which would permit the establishment of up to three casinos in Essex, Bergen, and Hudson Counties, would require legislative approval before going to voters on the general election ballot. The constitution currently restricts gaming to Atlantic City, where four casinos closed last year amid competition in Pennsylvania, New York, and elsewhere.

IF ONLY IT were a police officer, a family friend or uncle, any adult in the world who could have found them instead, and spared a boy from a horror he'll never forget. The eldest son of Christopher and Nicole Peppelman was alone, though, when he found his parents dead Tuesday afternoon, a bloody chain saw beside them in the Lower Moreland, Montgomery County, house where they'd once been happy. He's 14 and has two little brothers. Now it's up to the adults who are still here to help get him through it, because it's probably too late to lie about it. "I'm not ever sure there's an adult explanation for this tragedy," said the Rev. Eric Carswell of the Bryn Athyn Church, where the two younger Peppelman boys attend school.
