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.

THE SUMMER workout began like any other in Brandon, Manitoba. Ryan White warmed up and stretched with his trainer, then started his routine. When it came time for the strength portion of his session, he piled the plates on the bench-press bar. He lifted the bar off the rack and pressed upward - a repetition he'd practiced thousands of times on his way to the NHL. "I was going for another rep and something happened," White said. "I knew I was in trouble. " White's left pectoral muscle exploded.

Louis Freeh regularly conferred with the NCAA and kept its top officials informed as his firm investigated Pennsylvania State University's handling of the Jerry Sandusky scandal, according to e-mails unearthed by critics of Freeh and the league. What those messages meant became the subject of a heated debate Wednesday between the college athletics' governing body and the state officials suing over the crippling sanctions imposed on Penn State after Freeh's 2012 report.

In yet another bid to get union carpenters back into the Convention Center, the head of the union faxed a letter Tuesday to Gov. Corbett "to clear the air and provide you with an accurate picture as regards our union. " The governor has not seen the letter, his spokesman said. The carpenters were ousted after their leaders did not sign a new Customer Satisfaction Agreement by the May 5 deadline set by the Convention Center Authority Board. The union's work and the work of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 107, which also did not sign by May 5, have been divided among the four unions that did sign.

A CONTROVERSY sparked by three NAACP board members leading a revolt against the local president began with questions about money. It shattered long friendships. Now it has turned both personal and warthog ugly. Under attack is Stetson-wearing, longtime local NAACP president Jerry Mondesire, accused of playing a shell game with two checks totaling $10,500 intended for the NAACP - one for $10,000, another for $500. There is little question the NAACP's finances are precarious. Philadelphia Gas Works last month slapped a lien on the civil-rights organization for $821.83.

At first, I thought it was amusing. But when I learned there was a widespread belief that I charge real estate agents some sort of fee to be quoted in my columns and articles, I figured it was time to clear up this misconception. The topic arose a couple of months back, when I was working on a "Town by Town" piece about Cherry Hill for the Sunday Business section. I interviewed Nancy Pearl, an agent with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Fox & Roach, who has lived in the township for 25 years.

After most of the locker room had cleared out on Sunday, Jason Avant sat at his stall with a few reporters and said he believed that Tyrann Mathieu held him on the pivotal penalty that negated an interception thrown by Nick Foles. But he said he wouldn't have been surprised if the official had swallowed his whistle on a hold that occurred away from the ball. "Based on this year's definition of holding, I don't know," Avant said after the Eagles' 24-21 squeaker over the Cardinals.
