Politics is often a game of chicken. Last night, members of the Deptford Township Council gathered to discuss the finer points of the game. It wasn't difficult to determine that somehow chickens would come up. Standing in the wings was Joseph Jones, a member of the local sewer authority. He was dressed as a chicken. Councilman Kenneth Gewertz sat at the council dais with a foot-high bag of chicken wings in front of him. It was all part of the celebration of the township's great chicken hunt.

Hawks are moving to the city, leaving their broad swaths of corn and maple, sleeping in Fairmount Park, shrinking the wide ellipses of their flight into the harsh verticals of 9th and Market, hunting squirrels and mice, food the streets provide in such abundance you'd think it was the city's welcome to our newest immigrants - but it's convenience, the raptors' tastes aligned with food that's plentiful and...

Why have one when you can have two for the price of one? That was the reasoning behind the Springfield School District's decision to hire two consultants to help select its next superintendent. The board unanimously approved hiring two people to help with the hiring process: Dennis Harkin, executive director of the Montgomery County Intermediate Unit, and Don Langlois, a former superintendent in Chester County and a professor at Lehigh University. Harkin will be paid through funds that the district pays annually to the Intermediate Unit, which offers consulting services to all school districts in the county.

Col. Hugo Martinez did not protest when he learned that his superiors in Bogota were planning to replace him, and had even picked his successor. He offered to step aside. As the first anniversary of Pablo Escobar's escape passed in July 1993, there seemed to be better reasons to leave than to stay. Col. Jose Perez, his proposed replacement, was a respected officer who had been working on a poppy eradication program, which meant he probably had a comfortable relationship with the U.S. Embassy.

One of the strangest people ever I've met as part of my job was H.L. Hunt, the oil tycoon who was once considered the world's wealthiest man. In his twilight years, Hunt, who seldom spoke to reporters, would call me when he visited Chicago and volunteer to be interviewed. It wasn't clear why he wanted to talk to me, although I wondered if he planned to convert me to his way of thinking, which was so far right that he made Barry Goldwater sound like a pinko. For example, one of his pet political theories was that a person should cast as many votes as he had dollars.

As a full moon rose over Laurel Hill Cemetery on a sweltering July night, Frank Cassidy took his place in front of a crowd of about 100. "I am a medium," he said, clicking through a slide show of photos from his paranormal investigations, as attendees swatted at mosquitoes. "We see the dead, we speak with the dead. " The audience nodded attentively, straining to see orbs and ectoplasmic mists in the photos as Cassidy talked about staying positive on the job. He warned attendees about negative energy forces called "psychic vampires," then paused.

The children traded candy from plastic eggs at a local Easter egg hunt. Jelly beans, marshmallow chicks and pastel-colored M&Ms were among the goodies they expected. Pills and cigarettes were not. The idyllic Sunday-afternoon hunt was disrupted when children at the annual event on Anthony Avenue found two eggs that had been tampered with, police said. In one, an orange plastic egg, were two halves of a Merit cigarette. In the other, a brightly colored egg embossed with a chicken design, was a 400- milligram prescription-strength ibuprofen pill, an over-the-counter 200- milligram ibuprofen pill, and a Halls cough drop, police said.

Ricky Baker is a bad kid. He's trouble. Big trouble. The overweight orphan, who looks a bit like Cartman from South Park , has given a series of foster parents so much attitude over the years that no one will take him. He's so bad, he doesn't think twice about spitting, throwing stuff, writing graffiti, and shoplifting. "He's a bad egg," says his case worker, Paula (Rachel House), to the one couple left in all of New Zealand who agrees to foster the boy: Bella (Rima Te Wiata)

Sean McDermott gave Straight To It two smacks as the horse entered the homestretch of the Radnor Hunt Cup and broke away from the pack. "I was surprised how easily he was winning," McDermott said. The win was sweet redemption after last year's race, when the 165-pound-carrying Kentucky-bred was disqualified for interfering with another horse, despite crossing the finish line first. The Radnor Hunt Cup came with a $30,000 prize. The event was one of six steeplechase races held Saturday afternoon at the 86th Radnor Hunt races at the W. Burling Cocks Memorial Racecourse in Malvern.
