That young man you've seen pestering people outside the The Ritz Five these past few weekends wants you to know he is not a panhandler. He's rookie director M. Night Shyamalan, passing out fliers, shaking hands, and talking up the release his debut picture, "Praying with Anger. " Shyamalan, who grew up in Wynnewood and attended the Waldron Academy before studying film at NYU, is aware that he's made some people a little apprehensive. "Unless they've seen the trailer, people don't know who I am. They think I'm handing out information about a furniture moving company, or the Hare Krishnas.

I AM IN complete agreement with Jill Porter's column (Sept. 18) on a flier distributed in the Northeast by the Republicans. I've been a Democrat since I began voting, and my distaste for Republican ideas was only heightened by this flier, which promotes a black-vs.-white stance in issues of our city. Blight and crime is a class issue, not a racial one, and the fact that the GOP would try to influence my political affiliation because I am white and my mayor is black is insulting and moronic.

Camden County Republicans, who have been touting themselves as the honest alternative, have drawn fire for circulating what opponents say are racist and false campaign fliers. The Democrats have called the GOP racist for distributing material that they said could play upon the prejudice of white suburban voters against blacks in Camden city, who have supplied vital electoral support to the Democrats in the past. The Democrats have faulted a mailing distributed by Republican Freeholder Richard L. Wooster in which he urged voters to re-elect him. The mailing showed only one of the three Democratic candidates for freeholder, Gary Brown, who is the only black candidate on either party's freeholder ticket.

The state Bureau of Elections is looking into the legality of a labor- sponsored flier distributed yesterday in Northwest Philadelphia that called for the re-election of Democratic state Sen. M. Joseph Rocks. The flier was paid for by the Philadelphia AFL-CIO Committee on Political Education. The COPE fund is not registered as a political action committee with the state and thus is not eligible to make contributions of cash or anything of value to political candidates unless the contribution is valued at less than $250.

John Slavish says he can speak for most of his Plymouth Township neighbors when he complains about the fliers from Bradlees and Shop Rite thrown on his Valley Creek Road driveway. "It annoys the hell out of me," he said in a recent interview. Slavish had resorted, without much success, to stopping drivers and telling them he doesn't want the advertising fliers, most of which are from Bradlees and Shop Rite. He finally found a receptive ear at the Plymouth Township Council.

Don Meloney recalls that when he was 13 years old, he hooked his 1-year-old brother to a kite and flew him "as high as the treetops. " "I couldn't figure out why my mother was so mad," he recalled in an interview over the weekend. "My brother enjoyed it," he said, laughing. That was many years ago. But Meloney, a retired crane operator from Springfield, hasn't lost his enthusiasm for kite flying. That was evident Sunday when Meloney participated with dozens of other fliers in the seventh annual Delaware County Kite Fly at Rose Tree Park in Media.

Fliers are becoming more tolerant of fees to check baggage, and for a seat with extra legroom. In fact, passengers are more satisfied with their air travel experiences than they've been in the last decade, according to J.D. Power's 2016 North America Airlines Satisfaction Study released Wednesday. Because U.S. airlines are profitable, they are spending money on the customer experience, by lowering fares on some routes, achieving better on-time arrivals, reducing the frequency of lost luggage, and enhancing in-flight services with in-flight entertainment, Wi-Fi, and seat-side power outlets on board.

Will lightning strike again for Seth Berger and first for his young bud Joshua Harris with their newly launched Living Simple consumer tech accessories company? The venture kicked off with a clever, two-in-one iPhone case/wallet that they've dubbed the Bank. Clearly, Berger didn't need to dive again into the entrepreneurial trenches, to hire product designers and 3-D printed prototype builders (Machineart Industrial Design in Frenchtown, N.J), then to negotiate and tweak production, going through multiple iterations with a Far East factory.

During the holidays, planes are packed, flights are prone to weather delays, and the price of tickets to get to Grandmother's for turkey and all the trimmings is higher.

Spirit, which flies nonstop to five cities from Philadelphia, will for the second year add a $2 seasonal surcharge for checked luggage.

They start where Michael died - on the stretch of redbrick sidewalk outside the St. Peter's Church cemetery in Society Hill. There, Carol and Mike Hagan lay sunflowers and pray for their son. Then, as they have done so many times over the last three years, they get to work hanging their fliers. The fliers bear a smiling photo of Michael, offer a $50,000 reward, and pose a simple, heartbreaking question: "Who shot and killed me?" It is a question that has tortured the couple ever since that awful morning three summers ago, when two Philadelphia homicide detectives pulled up to their Pennsauken home.

American Airlines will combine the frequent-flier program of merger partner US Airways into its AAdvantage program, starting Saturday. The move to a single frequent-flier plan will take several days and will mesh 30 million US Airways' Dividend Miles members with 70 million American customers, American said in an e-mail message to travelers Tuesday. Although the two carriers officially merged in December 2013, the process of combining frequent-flier programs, obtaining a single operating certificate from the Federal Aviation Administration, and getting to a single computer reservation system are major steps that will not be completed until late this year.

APPARENTLY, working as a supervisor for the Transportation Security Administration at Philadelphia International Airport comes with a perk: You get to throw people in jail for no good reason and still keep your job.

Vanderklok, 57, is a Philly architect who runs half-marathons.
