WHEN GENE Roberts became executive editor of the Inquirer in 1972, he intended to turn the paper into a journalistic powerhouse. First, he had to check out the staff to gauge its strengths and weaknesses, find out who would help him transform the paper from the lame publication it had become to a first-class regional paper. One name caught his eye. Tony Auth was the political cartoonist, and the astute Roberts recognized quickly that Tony would be an important contributor to his plans.

NOT ONLY did Roman Catholic junior Phil DiWilliams pass for the most yards ever by a Catholic League quarterback last weekend, he also won the season's first Daily News Player of the Week award for his efforts. However, more important, he also earned a bit of redemption. You see, last year, DiWilliams' season ended unceremoniously after a five-interception performance in Week 3 against St. John's (Washington, D.C.). The previous week, he also played poorly against Downingtown East, Roman's opponent on Saturday.

U.S. REP. CHAKA FATTAH refused to say yesterday if he played a role in receiving and repaying an illegal $1 million 2007 campaign loan, which was disclosed last week when his longtime political consultant pleaded guilty to federal charges. "The one thing is, I'm not a lawyer, I'm not going to engage in it," Fattah said, responding to a question on WURD-900AM . "I'm not going to respond to an allegation that hasn't been made. " Those were the first public comments Fattah has made in the case since he was listed last week as "Elected Official A" in the federal guilty plea memorandum of his consultant, Greg Naylor.

THINK YOU can do my job? You probably can. As we have every fall since 1995, we're enlisting readers to help review some of the new TV shows. We call it Everybody's a Critic, and here's how it works: A group of avid TV watchers spends an evening with me at the Daily News , screening pilots and offering opinions, some of which will appear in the paper. I bake the cookies, the Daily News kicks in for sandwiches and, at the end of the night, we hand out some not terribly valuable parting gifts.

YOUR RECENT editorial ("You Know the Drill") paints an alarmingly incomplete picture regarding natural-gas development in Pennsylvania, and, specifically, the significant steps Gov. Corbett has taken to make sure it is done right. The Daily News seems fixated on the mechanics of how Pennsylvania collects taxes and fees from the gas industry, rather than whether it is paying its fair share. Since 2008, more than $2.1 billion in personal-, corporate- and sales-tax revenue has been collected from the gas industry.

YESTERDAY'S gruesome developments along the Schuylkill, said by cops to be possibly linked to Asian drug gangs, was not the first time Asian gang violence has made news in Philadelphia. In 2012, Sophos Siv, 40, was tied up, beaten and shot in his Olney home. A gunbattle over his killing ensued this year between reported Cambodian gang members. In 2005, five or six Asian men wearing bandannas drove through South Philly and opened fire, killing Angel Mucciolo, 18, a bystander. The case was believed to be gang-related.

I T DIDN'T TAKE a whole lot to make Jon Weir happy: his wife's spaghetti-and-meatballs dinner, a souvenir hat from a sporting event, a stroll along State Street in Media, watching his children play sports, a bike ride on the Ocean City boardwalk. For a man who was exposed as a newspaper copy editor to the frequently painful reality of breaking news for 46 years, his need for simple pleasures was understandable. Colleagues remember a devoted professional who could keep his cool even when big news was breaking on deadline, and could be counted on to get the copy out, clean and clear.

CHAKA "Chip" Fattah Jr. says he can't afford to pay a high-profile lawyer to fight the government. So the embattled son of a Democratic congressman did the next best thing: He hit the conservative talk-radio circuit yesterday to proclaim his innocence in the court of public opinion. It was similar to a book tour - except the book, in this case, is a 23-count fraud-and-tax-evasion indictment unsealed Tuesday. "I think this is something that your listeners can relate to. Overreach, big government.
