It's rare to see pop performers work harder than they have to onstage. Usually what you get is a well-rehearsed impersonation of energy and enthusiasm. But on Saturday night at the Electric Factory, Hanson genuinely ripped it up, romping through a two-hour-plus set that was an unalloyed pleasure. The sibling singers certainly didn't have to try so hard. Their still rabid female fan base would scream deliriously if Isaac, Taylor and Zac merely strolled out and waved to the crowd.

Keep those chins up, guys. Here, have a Lifesaver. It's not your fault that the new Hanson album is in the tank. Your first album was totally Jackson Five and this one should have been your Thriller, but instead it's turning out to be your History. When you stake your career on the whims of teenage girls - well, you live by the hormone, you die by the hormone. But you have advantages over the teen-pop competition - you play your own instruments, you write your own songs, you can really sing - that will save your career.

When Emilyanne was born, an older and wiser friend offered bemused congratulations. "So you've had a daughter," he said, grinning wickedly. "That's great. You have 12 wonderful years ahead of you. " Being a rookie at the fatherhood thing, I just nodded. Wise and thoughtful was the effect I was going for, although what I really felt was pity. He might have raised two daughters, but what did he know? With all due modesty, I handled her My-Daddy-Is-the-Best stage beautifully. Sometimes she fought with her brother, Danby, who is 14 months younger.

When Kevin Kolb starts getting all the repetitions with the Eagles' first-team offense, it draws massive attention, even at these contact-free spring camps. That's the essence of playing quarterback in the NFL and being the backup to Donovan McNabb. When Joselio Hanson and Nick Graham start working with the first-team defense, on the other hand, they can still pretty much go about their business without being questioned by a pack armed with notebooks, microphones and cameras.

They were young, confident and charming, dripping with the sultry naughty-boy looks that - well, Louis Pearlman just knew these five guys would be on the bedroom walls of teenage girls across America. But five years ago, America wanted grunge and rap. The Backstreet Boys and their breezy, white-bred dance-pop didn't stand a chance against Kurt Cobain and Tupac Shakur. Pearlman, a Florida entrepreneur who had taken out newspaper ads seeking five fresh faces, sent his fledgling guy-group overseas at the urging of their record label, Jive, and their managers, Johnny and Donna Wright.

Apart from the obvious fast-money titles - David Lee Roth's erratic, rather unglued biography Crazy From the Heat (Hyperion, $23.95), the Poppy Z. Bright treatment of Courtney Love, the inevitable quickie bios of Hanson and others - this year's crop of books on music align with one of the trends defining the music itself: They're splintered into tiny subgenres, trained on niche audiences. Even the outburst of titles devoted to Frank Sinatra is narrow in scope. There are books on Sinatra's style, on his musical gifts, on the gossip surrounding him. In this specialized environment, Philadelphia-based music phenomenons found a bit of spotlight this year.

Camden County Republican Chairman John Hanson, who for years has criticized Democrats for playing the political patronage game, has been appointed to a $72,000 job with the Whitman administration. Hanson, who has led the county GOP since February 1996, was named director of urban programs for the New Jersey Commerce and Economic Growth Commission, formerly the Department of Commerce. Hanson is replacing Susan R. Rose, a Cherry Hill Republican who unsuccessfully ran for a state Assembly seat in 1997, and whose campaign Hanson helped run. As director of urban programs, Hanson said he would be responsible for helping enterprise zones, or distressed urban areas in New Jersey, with job creation and economic development - a job he said he landed because of his background as a certified public accountant and elected official.

In all the rhapsodizing over Hanson as redeemers of pure pop music, a basic question of competence has been overlooked: Can the Tulsa, Okla., teen trio, known for the hurtling bubblegum hit "MMMBop," play their instruments convincingly enough to justify their album sales? Tuesday, at the first of two sold-out shows at the CoreStates Center, the brothers Hanson - guitarist Isaac, keyboardist and lead singer Taylor, drummer Zak - quashed all doubts within minutes of taking the stage.

In the weeks leading to the May 9 release of Hanson's This Time Around, the recording industry assessed the trio's elaborate marketing campaign with a mixture of respect and skepticism. Every detail needed to repeat the success of the brothers' 1997 smash Middle of Nowhere appeared to be in place. There were Hanson cover stories in several teen magazines and prominent features in others. Radio stations were running myriad contests. TV appearances were slotted on The Rosie O'Donnell Show, Late Show With David Letterman, MTV's Total Request Live, and CNN's Showbiz Today.

Paul D. Hanson was an Army sergeant in his early 20s during the first of two tours of duty in Vietnam when his late-night poker game was interrupted by an attack on the firebase he was guarding. Hanson, now 70 and living in Aston, said more than 1,000 enemy soldiers poured out of the jungle surrounding the firebase as mortar and rocket fire whizzed over the concertina wire. He radioed for help, expecting artillery fire. What he got was something powerfully different. The USS New Jersey, to the east in the South China Sea, trained its 16-inch guns toward the source of Hanson's troubles.

Catherine Ammon Hanson, 64, of Mount Holly, president of her family's A.G. Ammon Nursery in Chatsworth since February 2016, died of complications from lung cancer Friday, April 22, at the Samaritan Healthcare and Hospice Center in Mount Holly. The nursery grows only blueberry plants and ships the young bushes wholesale to other growers, said Patricia Paluszak, a sister of Mrs. Hanson. Born in Southport, N.C., Mrs. Hanson grew up in Tabernacle, attended Lenape High School, graduated in 1969 from Pemberton High School, and joined her family's firm as a secretary in the mid-1980s.

Donald A. Borden, a longtime Camden County schoolteacher and administrator, will inherit a campus in motion when he becomes Camden County College's president this summer. Like other community colleges, the school has resorted to layoffs and budget crunches to respond to enrollment and revenue declines. The college has about 100 fewer jobs than two years ago, including six people laid off just a few weeks ago at Borden's recommendation. "I've seen it in so many places, when you're cutting and you're cutting, and the money's going down, and your student body's going down - you just fall into this malaise," Borden said.

Mendes and Rocky bookended an eclectic evening aimed at running the gamut of twentysomething tastes. It had been plagued by cancellations.

As Atlantic City continues to suffer an economic free fall, state officials are contemplating turning to the private sector to jump-start development there. One proposal being reviewed by Gov. Christie and legislative leaders is the creation of a nonprofit development corporation that would help decide what projects to build. That could involve demolishing the shuttered Trump Plaza to create walkable retail and restaurant space and open sight lines, officials said. The nonprofit Atlantic City Development Corp.

ATLANTIC CITY - This town has always had its bosses. Its political Nuckys, Haps, and Sonnys, its corporate Steves and Donalds, its gangster Nickys and Joeys. But is the Boardwalk Empire ready for a new emperor? One with unilateral power to sideline the city's Republican mayor and Democratic council, throw out municipal labor contracts, sell off assets, slash spending, and privatize city departments? Jon F. Hanson, powerful two-time author of how-to-save-Atlantic-City reports delivered to Gov. Christie, is proposing exactly that - an emergency manager with "extraordinary supervisory powers" to stabilize a cratering city where casinos have closed and debt and taxes have skyrocketed.

One in a continuing series spotlighting real estate markets in the region's communities.   If it weren't for a Chester real estate agent named John Cochran and the clergyman/author Henry Ward Beecher, Delaware County might not have a Norwood. It was Cochran who bought two large farms in part of Ridley Township in 1873 and hired a Boston landscape architect to lay out streets and two parks and a couple of farmers to do all the heavy lifting. An auction, typical of 19th-century real estate practice, drew buyers by train from Philadelphia, who spent an average of $125 for one of the 50 lots sold.

CLICHÉ BE darned, when Roger Hanson steps on the mound, he revels in the idea of pitching for something bigger than himself. Yesterday, the senior righthander for George Washington High didn't need much help, pitching a one-hitter while striking out 12 in the Eagles' 3-0 taming of previously unbeaten Franklin Towne Charter. And although fatigue caused a few slight hiccups late, the only hit Hanson allowed came from the game's first batter. But afterward, the 6-foot, 185-pounder wanted to talk only about everybody else.

REMEMBER Hanson , the boy band that was actual boys, who topped the charts with their harmonized, hook-laden "MMMBop"? Believe it or not, the brothers have been a band for 21 years, and they're celebrating their coming-of-age with their own brand of beer. Mmmhops. Billboard magazine reported that the beer will debut this fall when Hanson is on tour to promote its new album, "Anthem" (due June 18). Money from the pale ale and its related merchandise - which is available at hanson.net - will be donated to the Red Cross to help out in storm-ravaged Oklahoma.
