Tonight - after way too long a winter hiatus - Fox's hip-hop drama, Empire, is back. So many unanswered questions: Will Rhonda, the pregnant wife of Lucious' son Andre, survive her tumble down the stairs? And who threw her? Will Anika ever tell Lucious' other son, Hakeem - played by handsome West Philadelphian Bryshere Y. Gray (Yazz the Greatest) - that she is preggers with his baby? And will Lucious be able to wrest his beloved company, Empire Entertainment, from the evil, manicured clutches of Camilla, whose salty character is well-portrayed by supermodel Naomi Campbell?

THE NO. 1 COMPLAINT of pet owners is shedding, sometimes aptly referred to as "blowing coat. " And while you can reduce the risk of a "fur-nado" with regular brushing and other basic strategies, there's no magic solution to put an end to the hair flying around your home as dogs start to shed their winter coats and new hair comes in. The dirty little secret about dogs is that they all shed, but some more than others. Double-coated dogs - such as Alaskan malamutes, chow chows, Shetland sheepdogs and Siberian huskies - are the most obvious.

The escape was so traumatic that Cory Donovan remembers what day of the week it was, even though it was four years ago. It was a Tuesday. Donovan had just come home from work at the Roanoke-Blacksburg Technology Council in Virginia and, as he did every day, let his Doberman mixes Raven and Lula out to do their business in the fenced-in backyard. When he went to bring them in, he lived every pet owner's nightmare: "They weren't there. " A landscaper presumably had not secured the gate when he left that day. Raven and Lula saw opportunity.

Well, let's just say there were some impurr-prieties dogging these feline paw-thletes. "Sometimes we get into an issue or two. They tend to like to really delve into the catnip, and that type of thing sometimes gets a little out of control," quipped Boomer Esiason, the Feline Football League commissioner for the Super Bowl Sunday event (airing at noon Sunday)

"When it's like this, she really likes to go outside," Sam Navarino, the zoo's education manager, said Sunday at the first Breakfast With the Animals program this year. The theme, not surprisingly, was "Creature Comforts," with Navarino explaining why some zoo animals love the bone-freezing weather.

Q: Me and this girl have been seeing each for about a month, and out of the blue one day she announces that she's a furry. She brought out this cat costume with ears and a tail she likes to wear to this dance party she goes to. She even answers the phone when I call by saying "meow. " I thought it was sort of cute in the beginning, but she's a grown woman with a kid. She's in this stuff deep. We've talked about it but she keeps on telling me that this stuff she's into has nothing do with sex. Is she going to want me to do it to her in that get up?

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. Weeks after Pennsylvania State University's search for a new president suffered a setback, a verbal battle over the process erupted Thursday at a committee meeting of the board of trustees. Trustee Anthony Lubrano said the board should allow all 32 trustees to meet with and interview the final three candidates. Only 12 trustees now serve on the search committee; he and other trustees who have criticized the board's leadership were excluded. "It's a valid concern when you say to 18 members of the board, 'Here's a person.

THOMAS: You might say this play is about . . . beware of what you wish for. VANDA: Because she might come walking in the door. And so she does. In David Ives' brilliant play "Venus in Fur," being given a dazzling production by the Philadelphia Theatre Company, Thomas, a playwright who has been auditioning terrible actresses all day long, is still wishing for one who can convincingly play the role of Vanda. And in stumbles an actress named, of all things, Vanda, who, mysteriously, already knows the script by heart and who, hilariously, has a bag full of thrift-store costumes to suit the part.
