Marsha Perelman could merely be a successful businesswoman (she has owned gas utilities in Ohio and Maryland and runs a small detergent company called Cot'nWash Inc. in Ardmore). Or she could live the gloriously simple life of a Main Line wife (she is married to multimillionaire industrialist Jeffrey Perelman and lives in Wynnewood). Or she could spend her time trying to figure out a college for her 17-year-old daughter (Columbia University and the enticements of New York City look very nice)

Worldwide travel over the last 15 years has convinced me that the cities and areas that draw the most visitors are the ones that capitalize on the history and heritage of the regions and nations where they exist. As Dennis J. Clark points out in his Op-ed Page piece of July 6, this should be the focus of the effort to promote and market Philadelphia. More importantly, these are the elements of our city's ambiance that should be upgraded scholastically and provided the financial support essential to the effort.

Staff writer Huntly Collins' article on Dec. 15 and the editorial on Dec. 17 articulately addressed the problems and financial difficulties of the Free Library of Philadelphia. However, they do not focus on the root causes of the lack of public financial support. The mayor's budget establishes the city's priorities. Although Mayor Goode and mayors before him have loudly called a literate citizenry a must, they have never given the library financial priority in their budget statements or in their actual budget preparation.

The Elmwood Park Zoo in Norristown was slammed by the economic downturn last winter, so when it was time to choose a new leader, the board of directors tried something different. Instead of an animal expert, the board picked a businessman. Albert J. Zone, who has been the zoo's business manager and acting director, was named executive director this week. He replaces Bill Konstant, an internationally known conservationist who resigned in November to work for two conservation foundations.

In Florida, the Everglades are shrinking because man has diverted the flow of water to farming, and the wildlife there is dying because of agricultural chemicals. In India, the Manas Tiger Reserve, home of more than 100 tigers, is at the mercy of poachers and timber smugglers. And in Nepal, Sagarmatha National Park, where Mount Everest is, has been overused by tourists who have littered the grounds and ruined hiking trails. The list of sites in urgent need of help has been growing, according to conservationist Russell E. Train, who is calling on the United States and other nations to increase their financial support of worldwide conservation efforts.

Put a microphone in front of a politician - any politician - and you're likely to hear fine words about helping kids and families. Despite such rhetoric, Congress is on the verge of hurting many families with disabled children. Under a pending bill, kids with a range of physical and mental problems - from cerebral palsy to mental retardation - would be disqualified from financial aid that subsidizes their care and, in some cases, keeps them from being institutionalized. The Republicans call this "welfare reform.

The Coatesville City Council has formally ended its relationship with the Brandywine Fire Company, a move that could make it easier for the volunteers to raise money by fighting fires in other communities. The council, which cut off financial assistance to the fire company at the end of last year, passed a resolution Monday night declaring the company independent. Barry Rabin, the fire company's lawyer, said the volunteers hoped the declaration would make it easier for them to reach agreements to help fight fires in neighboring communities.

TORONTO - Two men were arrested and charged with plotting a terrorist attack against a Canadian passenger train with support from al Qaeda elements in Iran, police said Monday. The case bolstered allegations by some governments and experts of a relationship of convenience between Shiite-led Iran and the predominantly Sunni Arab terrorist network. Chiheb Esseghaier, 30, and Raed Jaser, 35, had "direction and guidance" from al Qaeda members in Iran, though there was no reason to think the planned attacks were state-sponsored, Royal Canadian Mounted Police Assistant Commissioner James Malizia said.

Former Gov. Rendell on Friday encouraged green-energy advocates to support President Obama, despite the lack of enthusiasm they might have with the president's environmental record. Rendell, the keynote speaker at the PennFuture 2012 Clean Energy Conference at the DoubleTree Hotel in Center City, said there was "no question" that Obama supports a green-energy agenda. The Democrat said he was concerned about complacency because polls show Obama leading in Pennsylvania. "I want you not to believe for a second the fight here is over," Rendell told the audience of about 200 people, including representatives of nonprofits, government, and industry.

WASHINGTON - Major donors supportive of President Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney spent millions of dollars last month to get their candidates elected. But outside political groups helping Romney are poised to account for a growing share of that fund-raising largesse. The Obama and Romney campaigns both showed strong fund-raising hauls in May. Romney's campaign joined with the Republican Party to raise more than $76 million last month, outpacing Obama and the Democrats' $60 million haul during the same period.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Gov. Lincoln Chafee said Rhode Island is working to help former pitcher Curt Schilling's video game company remain viable after it failed to make a scheduled $1.125 million payment to the state's economic development agency. Chafee said Tuesday that the state must do "everything possible" to assist 38 Studios and prevent the state from having to pay the company's debts. The payment to the Economic Development Corp. was due May 1. 38 Studios was lured from Massachusetts in 2010 after Rhode Island offered a $75 million loan guarantee that state officials said would help bring jobs and tax revenue.

The players arrested were linebacker Tanner Brock , the leading tackler two seasons ago; defensive tackle D.J. Yendrey ; cornerback Devin Johnson ; and offensive lineman Ty Horn . The arrest affidavits raised the possibility that other players were involved.
