Jaimee Drakewood hurried in from the rain, eager to get to her final appointment at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Ever since her birth 23 years ago, a team of researchers has been tracking every aspect of her development - gauging her progress as an infant, measuring her IQ as a preschooler, even peering into her adolescent brain using an MRI machine. Now, after nearly a quarter century, the federally funded study was ending, and the question the researchers had been asking was answered.

Although Springfield High had three players in double-figure scoring, coach Jack Spinella said it was defense that lifted the Spartans to a 55-46 victory over Christopher Dock in a Bicentennial League basketball game Tuesday night at Springfield. "We played a full-court pressing defense for the whole game, and we really gave them fits," Spinella said. "We switched back and forth from a man-to- man to a zone, and I was very happy with the success we had. " Springfield (8-8 overall, 6-5 league)

GDANSK, Poland - Polish officials unveiled a statue of former President Ronald Reagan and Pope John Paul II on Saturday, honoring two men widely credited in this Eastern European country with helping to topple communism 23 years ago. The statue was unveiled in Gdansk, the birthplace of Lech Walesa's Solidarity movement, in the presence of about 120 former Solidarity activists, many of whom were imprisoned in the 1980s for their roles in organizing or...

John Stay would love to take credit for developing Jennifer Ricco. After all, it would boost anyone's ego to claim responsibility for polishing the skills of a dominant scorer or sharpening the tremendous all- round instincts of a total basketball player. But the Mastbaum coach conceded that he has had little to do with turning Ricco into the force that has carried the Panthers to the Public League semifinals. "She was already like this when she got here," Stay said. "The best thing I ever did for her was not try to change her. " That was because there was no need.

Upper Merion High School students might be required to take two health courses and an extra semester of social studies if the school board approves a proposal to revise graduation requirements on Jan. 28. The number of credits a student needs to graduate would remain the same, which is two credits more than the 21 required by the state, said Laura Ann Michener, assistant superintendent, at the board's workshop Monday night. Under the proposal, students would have to take 0.8 credits in health - 0.4 credits more than current Upper Merion requirements - and 1.6 credits in physical education.

Among the nation's largest cities, Philadelphia offers the most business tax breaks, forgoing more than $200 million a year in revenue as a result, a study by the Pew Charitable Trusts found. The report, released Thursday, looked at business tax incentives and exemptions between 2001 to 2003 and 2010 to 2012, the most recent complete set of tax data. It determined that between 2010 and 2012, the city forgave an average of $110 million annually in business incentives and $106 million in industry tax exemptions.

Standard & Poor's Global Ratings cut the Philadelphia Housing Authority's credit rating by one notch, to A+ from AA-, citing three consecutive years of operating losses. The outlook is stable. PHA's operating loss for the 12 months ended March 31, 2015, the latest audited financial information available, was $37.9 million on $368 million in operating revenue, most of it from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. S&P attributed the financial weakness to declining federal subsidies, though federal revenue increased 5 percent in fiscal 2015 from the year before.

Credit cards are more than just a convenient way to pay for stuff. When you use one, you automatically get very strong protection against most lousy-service scenarios and companies that sell faulty goods. The genesis of these protections is the federal Fair Credit Billing Act, a law that protects you from fraud by requiring credit-card companies - not consumers - to deal with fraudulent charges. The law also provides important protections against billing errors. What many consumers don't know is that the law also requires your credit-card company to give you the chance to dispute charges and withhold payment for goods and services that you didn't accept or weren't delivered as promised.

I probably don't have to tell you what a huge relief it was this week to learn that plagiarism is finally all right. Man, that took long enough. It is so easy to accidentally slip when writing about Philadelphia sports. Sometimes, particularly when the local landscape is outlined against a blue, gray October sky, the Four Horsemen occasionally ride again. As you well know, in dramatic lore, they are Famine, Pestilence, Destruction, and Death. But those are only aliases. Their real names are Eagles, Flyers, Sixers, and Phillies.

American Water is moving to the Camden waterfront, the company announced Thursday, becoming the latest New Jersey corporation lured to the city by generous state tax subsidies. Aided by the promise of $164 million in incentives, the Voorhees-based American Water Works Co. will build a new corporate headquarters between the Benjamin Franklin Bridge and the Adventure Aquarium, becoming the first piece of a massive complex planned by Liberty Property Trust, the Philadelphia-based developer that intends to build offices, shops, and homes there.

Unimpressed pedestrians who recently walked through an East Market Street set where an episode of the FX comedy series It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia was being filmed weren't just being rude. They unwittingly served as a metaphor for their state, which has been trampling over a tax program designed to lure filmmakers to Pennsylvania. For the first time in a decade, no major feature films are scheduled to be shot in or around the nation's fifth-largest city this year. That's because the tax credits Pennsylvania offers to production companies are paltry when compared with other states that are also trying to entice filmmakers.

Spotting a Hollywood megastar on set anywhere in Southeastern Pennsylvania this year will take more than a telephoto lens or a lucky break. Because for the first time in a good decade, no major feature films are slotted to be shot in or around the nation's fifth-largest city this year. The grim milestone has film boosters on edge in a region once adept at luring big-money producers to its cobblestone alleys and tree-lined suburbs. Pennsylvania's film tax credit is no longer working the same big-screen magic here.

S&P Global Ratings downgraded Ursinus College's credit rating by one notch, to 'BBB+' from 'A-', citing the Collegeville institution's plans to take on $23 million in additional debt this fall to build a facility for interdisciplinary academic programs. Ursinus had $42.5 million in debt at the end of fiscal 2015. The additional debt means that the college will no longer meet S&P's criteria for the higher rating, S&P said. The New York ratings agency also mentioned "weakened demand" and "continual enrollment uncertainty" in its downgrade, though it said the outlook was stable.

A federal judge in Trenton on Friday sentenced a 34-year-old Philadelphia woman to 40 months in federal prison for her role in a massive credit-card fraud scheme, prosecutor said. Vernina Adams, 34, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Anne E. Thompson to one count of conspiracy to commit bank fraud. She was charged in 2013, and since then 18 others have pleaded guilty in connection with the conspiracy to fabricate more than 7,000 false identities and obtain tens of thousands of credit cards.

ISSUE | FILM TAX CREDIT Pa. break pays off The Commonwealth Foundation's Nathan Benefield was wrong to call for the end of the Pennsylvania film tax credit ("Time to end Pa.'s corporate-welfare handouts," April 26). He claimed that the returns on economic development programs don't justify the expense, and he cited industry studies that counted only direct tax payments to states from productions. In fact, an array of state and local taxes are paid by cast and crew, hospitality and municipal workers, and businesses that invest in and serve the film industry.
