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.

December 25th has been a very special day for a very long time. When the 1985-86 NBA schedule was released, the day became even more special to those who have watched the 76ers over the years. 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.

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.

The fates of a migratory shorebird, horseshoe crabs, and the state's oyster industry have converged at the center of a debate over how each should be accommodated where they come together every spring, in New Jersey tidal flats along the Delaware Bay. Wildlife advocates hope to restore the dwindling population of red knots, small birds that federal authorities listed as a threatened species about three months ago.

PITTSBURGH - Villanova's players, coaches, and staff sat in a hotel meeting room after their victory over Lafayette, watching television and waiting for their next opponent in the NCAA East Regional to step forward. North Carolina State hung around Thursday night until one-tenth of a second remained to take that step when BeeJay Anya's shot in the lane lingered on the rim and dropped in for his team's only lead of the second half. The 66-65 win over Louisiana State meant a third-round matchup Saturday night against the top-seeded Wildcats at Consol Energy Center.

Pennsylvania's Marcellus Shale impact fee has channeled millions of dollars to areas affected by drilling, money local officials fear might be lost if Gov. Wolf's proposed severance tax on natural-gas production is adopted in Harrisburg. A parade of local officials testified Tuesday about the benefits their mostly rural districts have derived from the current impact fee. Some expressed concern that the governor's new proposal, which would quintuple the state levy on gas production, would drive the industry out of the state.

Saying he had serious concerns about the city's oversight of demolitions, City Controller Alan Butkovitz subpoenaed voluminous documents from the Department of Licenses and Inspections on Monday. In a letter to L&I Commissioner Carlton Williams, Butkovitz said he was launching an investigation into the department's adherence to stringent safety rules enacted after the Center City building collapse that killed six people in 2013. His action comes one day after The Inquirer reported that L&I allowed an illegal demolition at 26th and Poplar Streets last year.

The Philadelphia region's petroleum refineries, many of which faced closure four years ago, have experienced an economic revival, thanks to the arrival of a virtual pipeline of domestic crude oil by rail. But the same petroleum from North Dakota's Bakken oil field has been implicated in a succession of dramatic North American rail accidents in the last two years, most recently Monday in West Virginia. Video images of orange fireballs erupting from crumpled tank cars near the village of Mount Carbon last week reignited concerns that the same thing could happen here.

Nearly one-third of the faculty at the University of Pennsylvania Law School have criticized a new university procedure for handling sexual-assault cases that they say undermines traditional safeguards for the accused and could lead to wrongful disciplinary actions against Penn students. The procedure, adopted under pressure from the Obama administration, establishes a new position at Penn - the sexual violence investigative officer - and became effective Feb. 1. The policy weakens standards for finding that a sexual assault has occurred, while offering the accused only limited rights to a defense, law school critics say. Given examples of high-profile sexual-assault charges that have unraveled under close scrutiny, notably the gang-rape allegation at the University of Virginia reported by Rolling Stone magazine, the university must take steps to ensure its procedure for adjudicating sexual-assault cases is fair, the faculty members say. "Due process of law is not window dressing; it is the distillation of centuries of experience, and we ignore the lessons of history at our own peril," the faculty members said in an open letter aimed at the Penn administration as well as the broader public.

A survey of local cardiologists finds that they want patients to be more aware of the perils of an abnormal heart rhythm as well as the value of newer blood thinners and cholesterol-lowering statins. The survey of 475 heart specialists at dozens of hospitals and private practices was conducted this month by the Cardiovascular Institute of Philadelphia, an independent nonprofit dedicated to improving heart health in the Delaware Valley through educational programs. More than 70 physicians responded to the survey, which asked them to pick three important cardiology issues or developments that they felt patients should know more about.

Assemblyman John J. Burzichelli, a seasoned official with 13 years of legislative service under his belt, will triple his taxpayer-funded income this year with a second public job. Burzichelli, who is paid $49,000 as an assemblyman, a part-time job, will earn $100,000 as director of project management with the Gloucester County Improvement Authority, a job for which he was hired last month, officials said. Hires of this sort are lawful, but have drawn criticism from state government-ethics advocates.

TWO SCHOOL NURSES testified yesterday in the murder trial of stepmother Margarita Garabito about concerns they had for Charlenni Ferreira, the Feltonville girl who died in 2009 at age 10. Amy Ozenbaugh, the nurse at Clara Barton Elementary School in Feltonville, where Charlenni attended first and second grades, had complained to the city's Department of Human Services in October 2006 because she saw frequent bruising on the girl. When she learned in early 2007 that DHS was closing its investigation, "I was upset," she said.
