Summertime has been looking unrelentingly gloomy. China is experiencing a reign of terror. There's no end in sight in the drug wars. Washington is reeling from a rolling barrage of scandals. And the Phillies are in last place. But then, in a few short hours of high drama over the weekend, the Phillies auctioned off two of the few remaining recognizable players on their roster to get a respectable treasure trove of talent, including two strong pitchers from the Giants, and a pesky centerfielder from the Mets.

SPRING is just around the next 12-foot snow bank. No, really. New buds will be bursting from the trees, dead lawns will come back to life and flowers will bloom once again. Spring is a time of renewal. For Philadelphia's 200-plus children awaiting adoption, spring is a time of renewed hope that somewhere in the Greater Philadelphia region, there is a family willing to open their home and hearts to a child in need. While permanency is a year-round effort for the Philadelphia Department of Human Services, spring is a time when our efforts become even more important.

The General Assembly opens its 189th session Monday with significant pieces of leftover business - specifically, mass-transit funding - to address from a stormy end-of-session finale in November and a hodgepodge of new initiatives still in the planning stages. Republican leaders and Gov. Rendell are hoping for a fresh start in the new year despite lingering tensions. Late-night negotiations last session collapsed into an expletive-laden screaming match in the governor's office.

She is aptly named: Hope Spivey. At 17, she is one of the bright hopes for the U.S. women's gymnastics team as it rebuilds for the Summer Olympics in Seoul, South Korea. When the U.S. trials begin today in Salt Lake City, Spivey will be hoping to build on the momentum she had at last month's McDonald's championships, where she placed third overall behind Phoebe Mills and Kelly Garrison-Steves.

That noise you may have heard the other day in the vicinity of 11th and Diamond Streets was coming from the practice facility of the Temple football team, which has been going through spirited sessions of spring drills three days a week since March 27. Other college squads around the country are also on the field, finding out who's who and what's going to work. At this time of year, everybody is 0-0, with visions of a successful season. Temple is no different, though the Owls are coming off a 1-11 season that was their worst finish since coach Bobby Wallace took over in 1998.

Updating an old principle, a woman's home is her castle, and so is the inside of her automobile. But that's not the legal precedent to which the state Superior Court referred this week. Lancaster County Court slapped a $25 public obscenity fine on Linda C. Kelly for swearing at a construction worker and flipping him the bird in a traffic jam in April, 1998. Superior Court upheld her appeal, ruling that although she was "disrespectful, insulting and offensive. . .use of the f-word and . . .middle finger [have]

In a crime that will ripple through numerous reality shows, NFL player Chad Johnson (the receiver formerly known as Ochocinco ) was arrested over the weekend on domestic battery charges after allegedly head-butting his wife, Evelyn Lozado . According to the police report, the couple, who married in July, got into a heated argument after she found a receipt in his car for condoms. Lozado had been a cast member on Basketball Wives by virtue of her long relationship with NBA player Antoine Walker . Johnson, making a comeback with the Miami Dolphins, was featured last week in the first episode of this season's Hard Knocks on HBO. In granting Johnson bail, the judge ordered that the couple have no contact, which could affect the shooting schedule for their own reality show, Ev and Ocho , due to debut on VH!

EVER WONDER what hair dye moneypants vixen Anna Nicole Smith uses to attain that oh-so-trashy look? Wonder no more.

Tattle can't wait, for instance, to watch Anna Nicole, 34, interact with son, Daniel, 16, prompting viewers everywhere to ask "Kelly and Jack who?

It's as certain as flowers blossoming in spring. When a troubled sports franchise gets a new owner, hope springs eternal. Especially when the universal reaction to the old owner seems to be a collective "Good riddance. " Those were exactly the words of Matt Basilica, a bartender at Bridget Foy's South St. Grill, greeting the news of the sale of the Eagles by Norman Braman to Hollywood producer Jeffrey Lurie: "Goodbye. Good riddance. Thank God," Basilica said. Across the city yesterday, on street corners, in sports bars, at the Spectrum, football fans cheered the news, with only the barest of tongue-in- cheek exceptions.

By Ingrid E. Newkirk Hope springs eternal, no matter how slim the odds. You can see that in the long lines for Powerball tickets, despite the cold weather in most of the 42 states where the jackpot has climbed to hundreds of millions of dollars. No one can be blamed for wanting to win such a windfall. With more than $400 million in the bank, you could have a lot of fun, buy a lot of things you need - and a lot of stuff you don't - and do an enormous amount of good for those who weren't so lucky, like those poster children with cleft palates, the dogs in animal shelters, impoverished students who ache to go to college, the homeless man who needs a place to hang his hat and tattered coat, and a hopeful inventor in need of a little capital to kick-start her promising idea.

The opening of the football season is less than a week away and in the hearts of Eagles fans, optimism abounds and hope springs eternal. "This is our year, I can feel it. " "God knows after last year, we're due. "I just know it, if we get a few lucky bounces. " Such statements are commonly uttered this time of year. I've said them a few times in the past several weeks myself. The truth is, this same hope, this same feeling of guarded optimism is being felt by fans in 31 other cities right now (well maybe not Cleveland)

For TV lovers, this is the best time of the year, right after the networks have trotted out all their programming for next fall to entice the advertising agencies in New York. Everything has that new-show smell. All the pilots are beautiful, and hope springs eternal. By all means, enjoy this honeymoon period. Just don't get carried away. What look like gems in May often get raked away with the leaves in November. As a reminder of how unreliable first impressions can be in television, let us travel in the way-back machine, Mr. Peabody, to this exact time a year ago. There was one universally acknowledged "sure thing": The X Factor was going to be the season's biggest hit. Not only had the format already proved enormously successful in Britain, but Simon Cowell, the bloody Pied Piper of singing contests, was at the helm besides.

May is the month when hope springs eternal for broadcast TV. Following a season when almost nothing new bore fruit for ABC, the network announced Tuesday afternoon an ambitious palette of freshman series for 2011-12. Seven shows will join the fall lineup, including a sitcom with Tim Allen   and a glamorous remake of that '70s sensation, Charlie's Angels . ABC has six more series in the wings for midseason, including an international thriller starring Ashley Judd and a catty soap set in Dallas with Leslie Bibb, Kristin Chenoweth, and Annie Potts.

By Drew Faust Hope springs eternal, and spring brings hope eternal - for renewal and rebirth, but also for pennants and championships. "Next year" has come at last, with its sense of infinite possibility. No wonder we love baseball. It's so congruent with the seasons, rhythms, and aspirations that shape our lives. My particular path to baseball fandom had some other influences as well. I was first attracted to the game as a child growing up in rural Virginia, 60 miles west of Washington and its legendary - for their unrivaled losing record - Washington Senators.

THIS WAS mid-August at Lehigh. I was talking to Eagles strong safety Quintin Mikell about the team's pass defense, which had given up 27 touchdowns through the air in 2009, the most by the club in 23 seasons. Hope springs eternal in mid-August, especially for a defense that spent its top two draft picks on a pass rusher and a safety, and whose starting middle linebacker was healthy again after missing all of last season with a knee injury. Mikell was fairly confident at the time that the Eagles wouldn't be giving up 27 touchdown passes this year.

EVERY TIME state House races come around, we are reminded of what the 18th-century writer Samuel Johnson had to say about second marriages: He called them the triumph of hope over experience. Each election cycle, we have hopes for Harrisburg to be infused with new blood - for people to say "we're mad as hell and we're going to change things. " And some of them run, and get elected. And before you know it, the election cycle has returned, and nothing much has changed. But hope springs eternal, in part because we are always impressed with the range of candidates who run. Most are solid, neighborhood types, many of whom are active in their communities, care about their neighbors, and spend hours knocking on doors and campaigning.
