WASHINGTON - Reclusive Taliban leader Mullah Mohammed Omar wrote to President Obama last year indicating an interest in talks key to ending the war in Afghanistan, current and former U.S. officials told the Associated Press. The letter purportedly from Omar was unsigned. It was passed through a Taliban intermediary in July and intended for the White House. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the letter and its contents are part of sensitive diplomacy with a fighting force that targets U.S. troops.

Dick Versace, former Indiana Pacers coach and current TNT and NBA radio broadcaster, said yesterday that he has made contact with owner Harold Katz about a job with the Sixers. Versace, in Chicago for Game 4 of the Bulls-Pistons street war, did not say whether he was inquiring about the general manager's job that Jim Lynam left earlier this month or the head coaching job that now belongs to Fred Carter. "It could be either," Versace said. "I like doing television, but if the right offer came along, I'd listen.

Contacts between two jurors, a defendant and defendants' relatives were dismissed yesterday as not important enough to affect the racketeering trial of six former members of the defunct Five Squad narcotics unit. Senior U.S. District Judge John B. Hannum rejected a request by prosecutor John P. Pucci that the jurors be questioned about the contacts, and Pucci did not press the matter during a sidebar conference, sources said. "No harm, no foul," said one defense lawyer, using a basketball analogy to indicate that the conversations among the jurors, a defendant, and relatives of defendants were not considered serious breaches of the prohibition against such conversations.

It is not uncommon for Phillies president Bill Giles to be contacted by people who claim to have an interest in buying the team. Such an occasion occurred last week, several sources said, when Giles and local resident Sidney Kimmel had lunch. Kimmel might not be a familiar name to the sporting public, but he is not unknown in the upper echelons of professional sports. He is believed to have looked into the possibility of buying other sports franchises, most notably the NBA's Miami Heat.

Optometrist Kimberly Friedman still vividly recalls the panicked 15-year-old boy who came into her Woodbury office. As he clutched a wet washcloth over his swollen-shut eyes, he groaned in agony. When Friedman gently pried open one eye, the cornea was covered in a hazy cloud of bacteria, and the whites of his eyes were "fire-engine red. " And in one eye, he was completely blind. "He was doubled over in pain," said Friedman. "I'd never seen anything like it. " Nor has she since that incident, a decade ago, but other eye doctors around New Jersey have - and do. In July, optometrist Ken Daniels treated a 16-year-old in Princeton with similar symptoms.

Tough competition for jobs and a national entrepreneurial trend fed by necessity have made " 'networking' the buzzword of the '90s," says Bob Burg, an expert on sales. The challenge, said Burg, who was in Philadelphia last week pitching his book on effective networking, is to network in a way that potential customers don't feel pushed and obviously exploited. Officially, Burg was just doing a gig as a warm-up speaker on the motivation-rally circuit. But he used his sales pitch to keep a Convention Center audience enthusiastic while it waited for Notre Dame football coach Lou Holtz.

DEAR ABBY: We have a child who was adopted through a closed adoption. We met the birth parents briefly at the hospital, but they wanted no further contact. Both birth parents had issues with drug abuse, and our daughter was born with drug issues, too. A few years later, we were contacted via the adoption agency by the paternal birth grandparents. They requested some photos because the birth father was getting out of jail, and they thought the photos would help keep him out of trouble.

DEAR ABBY: I am dreading a trip that includes a visit to my husband's mother, "Harriet. " She is prone to "accidents" when I visit, and I always end up getting hurt. Harriet's "oops" moments usually involve my toes and feet, although the last time I was there, she managed to strike my face. I have taken the precaution of looking up the phone number of the police department in her city, just in case she hits me again. Is there a way to keep her at arm's length so she can't get close enough to punch me?

WASHINGTON - For the Pennsylvania political class preparing to engorge on food, drink and gossip at Saturday's annual Pennsylvania Society gathering in New York, the political buffet offers many options. Several high-profile primary races, including for two Congressional seats and maybe the attorney general's office, loom in what promises to be a rollicking election year. But the big headliner is Pennsylvania's U.S. Senate race, among the most closely watched in the country, and featuring a three-way Democratic primary in a contest that could help decide control of the Senate.

According to Kit & Ace founders Shannon and J.J. Wilson, I'm the poster woman for the full-contact lifestyle. I'm up about 6:30ish for a run or to take a class at Focus Barre. Then it's off to work for eight to 10 hours. Evenings are filled with work-related soirees that involve cocktails and photo shoots in front of step-and-repeats more likely to make their way to social media before I make my way home, which sometimes is after 9 p.m. So I need clothes that both complement my curves and feel like pajamas.

Rep. Chaka Fattah's social network just became a little larger as federal prosecutors agreed to allow the Philadelphia Democrat to maintain contact with 16 potential government witnesses as he prepares for trial next year on corruption charges. Most on the newly approved list - which includes the likes of former Gov. Ed Rendell, Sen. Bob Casey (D., Pa.), and State Sen. Vincent Hughes (D., Phila.) - are elected officials, former staffers, and prominent constituents that Fattah's lawyers say he must continue to talk with in order to fulfill his congressional duties.

D EAR ABBY: I have recently begun a relationship with my biological father, "Frank," after not seeing him since I was 4. My mother and stepfather raised me and I am very close to them. But after talking to Frank and meeting him face to face, I have gotten close to him as well. His relationship with Mom ended badly. They were very young and he takes all the blame. Mom has always said that if I have a relationship with Frank, she wants no part of it. After I told her I have been talking to him for two years, she became upset and has been short with me and my wife ever since.

When it came to his contact lenses, Akshay Patel, 21, admits his hygiene was not the best. "Sometimes I showered in them, and once in a while I slept in them," the Rutgers pharmacology student said. "I didn't always change the contact lens solution, I didn't always take the time to clean them, and I probably had the same contact lens case that I started with in college. " Though Patel's story is not unusual, the possible result of his poor habits is: a case of Acanthamoeba keratitis , a rare infection of the cornea that can cause permanent visual impairment or blindness.
