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.

Letters went out this week to gauge interest for 2024 among the nation's 25 largest cities - including Philadelphia - and 10 others, the USOC said. Mark McDonald, Mayor Nutter's spokesman, was noncommittal Wednesday about whether the city would apply, but he spoke enthusiastically about what an honor it would be to host the Games.

DEAR ABBY: We visit my grandmother out of state once a year. After our visits, I usually leave feeling defeated. A few reasons for it: She leaves multiple notes around "reminding" us to clean up after ourselves. There's a note in the shower that says, "Please wipe down shower walls after use. " She asks me to change the sheets or launder our towels before I leave. Although she has decorative paper hand towels in the bathrooms, she asks us not to use them because they are "too expensive.

Nationally, VegFests are on the rise, those one- or two-day get-togethers of meat-free eaters over meat-free food, often with speakers and entertainment.

A Philadelphia judge ruled Monday that the public does not have a right to know who is funding the Democratic National Convention or how the money is being spent until after the event. "The decision of the Host Committee to withhold information about its donors and their contributions until the end of September may well be unwise, and certainly does not promote the value of transparency, but nothing in the law requires otherwise," Common Pleas Court Judge Abbe F. Fletman wrote. Her 10-page decision rejected freelance journalist Dustin Slaughter's motion that sought to force the Philadelphia Authority for Industrial Development (PAID)
