The Association of Racing Commissioners International has developed guidelines regarding racing crop construction and use. The crop is to be used only for safety, correction, and encouragement, and in a manner consistent with the jockey's best efforts to win. The jockey is to show the horse the crop and give it time to respond before striking the horse. After using the crop, the jockey is to give the horse time to respond before using it again. The crop is to be applied only to the horse's shoulder or hindquarters, not its face or flanks.

After a year of preparation, formal guidelines for accommodating students or employees with AIDS or AIDS-related infections have gone to the Marple Newton school board for its approval. A two-page document was received with little comment from the board at its public executive session Tuesday night. A vote is scheduled at a public board meeting Sept. 25. "We tried to make it very general and nonspecific. Each individual has to be dealt with on an individual basis," said Robert Plotkin, the district's physician, who assisted in developing the guidelines.

The Haverford Township school board, in an attempt to "neither advance nor inhibit religion," has drafted guidelines to aid its teachers and administrators on religious issues, including Christmastime activities. A key proposed guideline presented at a work session of the school board on Tuesday night states, "Any dramatic or musical displays and activities in art, music, dance or other form of artistic expression, regardless of the season, must be determined by their educational function and value and must avoid the atmosphere of a religious ceremony or observance.

The Radnor Township school board Tuesday was presented with a detailed report proposing that class sizes in the high school be pegged within a flexible range of 10 to 27 students. The 38-page final report was submitted by Superintendent John A. DeFlaminis after nearly 18 months of discussions, research and public hearings with the administrative staff, teachers and parents. The report, DeFlaminis emphasized, is a guideline subject to periodic review of conditions that would influence class sizes, such as complexity of courses, extent of student needs, instructional needs, scheduling and enrollment.

Four former Synthes Inc. executives who pleaded guilty to charges stemming from an illegal clinical trial of bone cement in which three people died are now awaiting word from U.S. District Judge Legrome D. Davis about the guidelines he will use to sentence them and the date for sentencing. The defendants are Michael Huggins of West Chester, Thomas Higgins of Berwyn, Richard Bohner of Malvern, and John Walsh of Coatesville. The four men were in court earlier this week as their lawyers argued for guidelines that might lessen the potential prison and probation time.

Supervisor Chairwoman Mary Powell said at Tuesday's joint meeting of the supervisors and Planning Commission that the committee would try to complete a replacement ordinance by the end of the year. She said the committee would consider density, parking, open space, screening and traffic in proposing new guidelines.

In the opinion of some Haverford School District parents, Scrooge - not Santa - is dominating their children's holidays this year. Parents Thursday night complained that the way the new religious guidelines have been implemented in the schools, the holidays are being ignored. "It is a tomb for this time of year," Frank Werner told the board. "Tell me why Ronald Reagan can light a tree at the White House and my child can't have decorations?" Last month, the board adopted a set of religious guidelines designed to show sensitivity toward all students and their beliefs.

Members of the Octorara Area school board have reviewed proposed guidelines for the busing of students to their baby sitters' homes after school each day.

The board members reviewed the new guidelines at a work session Monday night.. The guidelines are expected to be on the board's agenda at its meeting tomorrow.

The Philadelphia Department of Licenses and Inspections has issued guidelines to comply with legislation passed by the General Assembly extending deadlines for commercial and residential construction permits and approvals until July 1, 2016. The Assembly approved an amendment to an act passed in 2010 extending for three more years all permits and approvals of building projects received between Jan. 1, 2009, and July 1, 2013. The amendment was passed in part to provide additional time for projects throughout Pennsylvania affected by the economic downturn.

One trouble with federal judges is that they spend most of their lives in a warm milk bath of adulation. Accountable to no one, protected by life tenure, they take on the trappings of hereditary monarchs. We are seeing the phenomenon all over the country in the judges' revolt against federal guidelines for sentencing criminals. The guidelines are tough. Some of the protesting judges are woefully soft. Consider the U.S. district judge. His public day begins when the bailiff cries "All rise!"

Emergency rooms are increasingly a prime spot for patients seeking powerful pain medications, with doctors caught between the desire to help people in pain and the need to discourage addiction and even overdoses. Temple University Hospital reported Tuesday that it had found a straightforward way to limit prescriptions of these opioid drugs, such as Percocet, Dilaudid, and Vicodin: a set of guidelines that helps ER doctors determine when to say no. Among patients with dental, neck, back, or unspecified chronic pain for which opioids are not advised, the number getting prescriptions dropped below 30 percent immediately after the guidance was distributed in January 2013 - down from 52.7 percent beforehand.

The city's Department of Licenses and Inspections failed to follow new inspection guidelines in more than 80 percent of private demolitions performed over the last nine months, an analysis of agency records shows. And, people familiar with L&I records say, the agency's database appears to have been altered to show that demolition inspections had occurred when they had not. In at least one case, records show, the agency's database said five inspections that should have occurred during a demolition were actually conducted four months after the building had been razed.

Is your child ready for a cellphone? There's no way around it. Sooner or later, most parents will confront the issue of whether to let their children have cellphones, and if so, when? The good news is there's lots of expert advice available. The not-so-good news is none of it provides the answer. That's because no one answer is right for all parents and all kids. On this question you're on your own - and, unlike the age for legally driving and buying alcohol, there aren't any laws to back you up. One thing is sure: It shouldn't be based on the number of times your daughter tells you, "All of my friends have one. " Or, for that matter, how many of your friends have given their kids' phones.

Adding to debate and doubt over the value of breast cancer screening, the American Cancer Society on Tuesday affirmed that mammograms save lives - but for the first time suggested women should start the X-rays later in life. Until now, the venerable cancer organization's guidance has been simple: Yearly mammograms, starting at age 40, for as long as a woman is in good health. The update says women at average breast cancer risk should have annual mammograms from age 45 to 54, then "transition" to every other year, but "have the opportunity to continue annually.

Recently, I wrote about a RealtyTrac report showing that the percentage of purchase price being committed to mortgage down payments has continued to drop as the real estate market has recovered over the last two years. The result of lower down payments is that more buyers are paying for private mortgage insurance, which protects the lender if the borrower defaults on the loan. The insurance covers the difference between what borrowers put down and 20 percent of the sale price or appraised value of the homes.

NEW DIET guidelines: a death knell for meat eating? Headlines for February's long-awaited Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee recommendations practically shouted as much. And the meat industry seemed to agree: Barry Carpenter, president and CEO of the North American Meat Institute, quickly slammed the committee for a "flawed" report "generalizing about an entire category of foods," although that's exactly what the guidelines have done since back in the "Four Food Groups" days. At issue is a shift in the overall favorability of flesh-based foods in the diet: When the guidelines were last revised, in 2010, they said that healthy eating "emphasizes . . . lean meats and poultry," while the new recommendations say a healthy diet is "lower in red and processed meat.

IT MIGHT BE tempting to consider Charles Ramsey's role as co-chairman of a presidential task force on policing ironic, given that the police force over which he presides has its own long and checkered past of problems. Those problems range from individual causes - badly (and criminally) behaving police officers - to larger and lingering questions about policies and procedures in the department, especially around training and use of force. But we think that Ramsey is the natural authority for leading this large-scale look at policing across the country.

AS FIRE Department leadership decides the fate of a paramedic who caused an uproar with a controversial Instagram post, one question still burns. What are department members like Marcel Salters, a paramedic at Medic 23 in West Philly, allowed to post on social media? The rules seem pretty standard for professionals, at least according to the Fire Department's social media and networking guidelines, obtained by the Daily News . Employees can't post "messages, images, comments or cartoons" that are threatening or sexually explicit, or hurl epithets or slurs against race, religion, gender and sexual orientation, according to the guidelines.
