Jaimee Drakewood hurried in from the rain, eager to get to her final appointment at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Ever since her birth 23 years ago, a team of researchers has been tracking every aspect of her development - gauging her progress as an infant, measuring her IQ as a preschooler, even peering into her adolescent brain using an MRI machine. Now, after nearly a quarter century, the federally funded study was ending, and the question the researchers had been asking was answered.

Does man use tools or vice-versa? This question haunts 2001: A Space Odyssey, Stanley Kubrick's masterwork about the evolution of humanity from monkey to man and of tools from club to computer. The Chestnut Hill Film Group is offering a rare opportunity to see Kubrick's 1968 masterpiece on the big screen, and to understand that no one imagined the way the future looked more evocatively than the filmmaker in his hugely influential, if sometimes impenetrable, space opera. 2001: A Space Odyssey is scheduled to be shown at the Chestnut Hill branch of the Free Library of Philadelphia.

It is of great importance to follow the news reports such as those published in The Inquirer about the emerging countries of South America - Argentina, Chile, Brazil and Peru, among others - because the true future of the United States lies with the republics south of the border. It is not far away the day when Hispanics of U.S. citizenship will represent America before the Latin American republics, hence the need to speak the Spanish language on the part of those willing to travel, do business or settle there.

'You can never plan the future by the past," said Edmund Burke. Too often, however, government plans for the future are based only on past experiences. When government does look forward, it may be for only one budget cycle. As a departure from this norm, the city controller's office undertook a project to make suggestions for the future based on an analysis of the challenges and opportunities that await Philadelphia in the next century.The product of that project became the book, "Philadelphia: A New Urban Direction.

More people - but with smaller family sizes - living in ever-bigger houses on larger lots are adding up to a loss of Chester County's open spaces, natural features and farmland. It's a trend that county government is seeking to reverse, through guidelines for future growth, planning money for municipalities, and preservation of open space. Next month, the county will hold a summit meeting on the issue. A conference is set for 4:30 to 9 p.m. Monday, March 31, at Unionville High School to discuss the successes and failures of the county's preservation efforts and to chart local and countywide strategies to guide growth.

Money makes the wheels go round. That simple, yet complicated, message dominates the day-to-day existence of SEPTA, according to Richard G. Bickler, the transit authority's director of long-range planning in its Planning, Development and Real Estate Department. Bickler, 42, of Ardmore, has held the newly created position for two months. While he is not unaware of SEPTA's present problems, his job is to frame the future by creating a long-range plan, which he said also would serve as a marketing tool.

HARRISBURG - Some of the revelations resulting from the 10,000 open-records requests that Terry Mutchler has handled have been blockbusters. Among them: ex-Philadelphia schoolteachers still on the payroll years after their terminations; a Little League coach pilfering the organization's till; a school district serving spoiled food. Despite bipartisan support and a rare public plea by leaders of both parties, Mutchler's future remains uncertain, three months after her six-year term as executive director of the Office of Open Records expired.

LONG BEACH TOWNSHIP, N.J. - As Gov. Christie descended on the Shore on Tuesday to make his case for cuts to public worker pensions, Larry Parker had a message for him. "We're not here to talk about getting something for nothing," Parker, a 73-year-old retired police chief, told Christie at a park on Long Beach Island, where the governor hosted a town-hall-style meeting. "I don't think any of us want to rob the New Jersey taxpayers. We are taxpayers. " Parker, a former police chief in Stafford Township, said he worried for his financial security: "Where does a 73-year-old man go and find a job?"

At the beginning of a work week that promised hot, steamy days, five high school students put on bug repellent, yellow hard hats, gardening gloves, and work boots before Monday's shift at the John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge at Tinicum. For the next several hours, they pushed wheelbarrows full of water, shoveled soil, and tended to the native plants they added last week to the area in front of the visitor center. The crew members are in the middle of a six-week summer job that calls for them to work on projects varying from removing invasive plants to replacing park benches - thus the hard hats.

On Tuesday, 4,500 of them will occupy Citizens Bank Park to watch the Phillies take on the San Francisco Giants.

LIKE MORE than 20 percent of my fellow Californians, I am now classified as a no-party-preference voter, registered to vote but with no affiliation to any of the state's political parties. I am for lower taxes and for marriage equality. I am tough on crime and I am anti-abortion. I believe that a pathway to citizenship is a necessary part of immigration reform and that student test scores should be a critical component of teacher evaluations. Given the nature of modern-day politics, I'm not sure either party would have me. Those of us who consciously choose not to ally ourselves with a party are the fastest-growing portion of the electorate.

The coaching staff asked and Morin answered, giddily shouting: "John LeClair. " The Flyers prospects participated in the annual Trial on the Isle during development camp Monday. And in the opening part of the day they had to answer a trivia question before beginning a racecourse on the beach in their smaller teams of four. Morin got his team started with the LeClair answer.

MINNEAPOLIS - During the 3 days of All-Star festivities at Target Field, the Phillies will have twice as many players participate in the first event than they will in the main event. Perhaps that's not a terrible development for depressed Phillies fans. Infield prospects Maikel Franco and J.P. Crawford played in yesterday's All-Star Futures Game, an event held each year displaying the top prospects in the game. Chase Utley will make the sixth All-Star appearance of his career tomorrow; the 35-year-old Utley will be the third-oldest player in either starting lineup.

THE FLYERS' top four defensive prospects - Sam Morin, Travis Sanheim, Shayne Gostisbehere and Robert Hagg - at a development camp Friday in Voorhees, were noticeably excited when asked about their roles on future Flyers teams. But each was cautious about thinking too far ahead. Ron Hextall told Flyers prospects that the ongoing development camp was not an evaluation process, and the GM said he was not ready to "anoint" any of these kids with an NHL roster spot in his first summer in Philadelphia's front office.
