THE THINGS Gregory Hayes lived for, his wife and two young children, are displayed on his Facebook page beneath a picture of the motorcycle he was riding to work Friday night. Police in Upper Darby said Hayes, of Lansdowne, had just left his home about 11:15 p.m. Friday, heading to work as a police officer with the Philadelphia School District, when Salome Seay, an Upper Darby man with a heavy foot and a head full of margaritas, made a hard left on Marshall Road, right into the path of Hayes' Suzuki.

TURNING THE BIG 4-0 can be a difficult hurdle. Amanda Schoonover, a South Philly-based actress, was no exception. But instead of hiding from her age the way so many in her profession do, she decided to celebrate the fact that she was entering her fourth decade by posing for some boudoir-style photos. Nothing overly risque or graphic. She wanted to pose in lingerie and strike some 1950s-era style pinup poses. Tasteful images taken by a professional photographer. "I wanted to do something that would make me feel good about myself," Schoonover told me yesterday.

"Through a third-party source it has come to my attention that Dr. Ezell is growing marijuana at his residence and selling it to his patients and other individuals," the tipster wrote.

A TINY but tough little woman climbed the marble stairs of St. Francis Xavier Church and went straight for the Rev. Philip Bochanski, who was greeting guests in the doorway. "We're mobbin' youse!" she told the priest. Bochanski smiled. He'd been expecting the mob. He'd hoped it would come. It was all part of the Mass-ter plan. These days it's not so common to find masses of people at Mass. Dwindling Catholic congregations have led to empty pews in cavernous but beautiful churches.

THE VIDEO begins with the Route 66 bus rocking ever so slightly as its engine hums to life, heralding the start of a depressing two-person ballet. A young mother is hunched forward in her seat, facing the aisle. Her expression never changes: Her eyes are shut, seemingly trapped inside of an invisible fog, while her mouth hangs wide open. Her body droops forward, like a dying sunflower. A little girl's voice cuts through the din. "Mama," she says. "Mama!" She reaches across the aisle in her pink jacket and tries to use her tiny hand to prop up her mother's head.

Paige Wolf has been buying health insurance from Independence Blue Cross for years. So when the self-employed public relations professional learned that she could buy a top-of-the-line platinum plan for less than her old policy, she was ecstatic.
