FORT MYERS, Fla. - With straw-hatted scouts clustered like ants in JetBlue Park's shade, hundreds of sweating, sunbaked high school baseball players gathered in June for the Perfect Game National Showcase, and overexerted themselves on nearly every throw and swing. Then, like a welcome breeze amid all the sweat and struggle, Jason Groome coolly took his turn on the mound. If, in their zeal to impress, his pitching peers' efforts seemed grossly exaggerated, the New Jersey native's were as smooth and sweet as the nectarines in an adjacent orchard.

FOX 4 TV in Fort Myers, Fla., reported that police there arrested Eagles safety Nate Allen yesterday. The station offered no details, and the team said it was attempting to obtain information on the situation. Allen, 27, a second-round draft choice from South Florida in 2010, will become a free agent next month and seems unlikely to return to the Eagles. Daily News attempts last night to contact Allen, the Fort Myers police and Allen's agent, Todd France, were unsuccessful.

Scrappy Southwest Airlines, which came to Philadelphia with a splash but which has retreated as rival US Airways proved a tough competitor, is ending its year-round nonstop flights to Fort Lauderdale, Fla., from Philadelphia. Southwest will curtail nonstop service in the off-season to West Palm Beach and Fort Myers, Fla., the airline confirmed. James Tyrrell, Philadelphia International Airport deputy director of property and business, said Thursday he got the news from Southwest the day before the latest schedule came out. "They called me to say they were discontinuing the Fort Lauderdale flight, and they weren't sure whether they would be bringing it back, as they do other Florida routes that are seasonal," Tyrrell said.

FORT MYERS, Fla. - President Obama had been on the job less than a week when a top economic adviser told him and Vice President Biden that the country faced a trillion dollar deficit, Biden told a roomful of Florida supporters Saturday. Obama replied, "But I haven't done anything yet," Biden recalled. The mammoth deficit landed in Obama's lap, Biden said, because former President George W. Bush "put two wars on a credit card," and gave tax cuts to the wealthy. Not long after getting the grim news about the deficit in 2009, the Obama White House said the country faced a long and painful financial recovery, even with major government intervention to stimulate the economy and save financial institutions.
