Those with big stakes in the housing industry appear to be champing at the bit to declare the recession over and recovery just around the corner. Not as convinced are economists and observers outside the industry, who do not see a few months of comparatively positive sales and construction numbers as a guarantee that the worst is behind us. Several reasons appear consistently in the skeptics' analyses: the tax credit for first-time buyers, interest-rate volatility, government intervention, continuing unemployment, and the steady stream of foreclosures and mortgage delinquencies nationwide.

Whether buying into an Atlantic City nightclub or throwing the first pitch at a Phillies-Mets game or spinning and mixing records for celebrity friends and fans, all Adam Goldstein - DJ AM - was trying to do after surviving a horrendous 2008 airplane crash was live his life and stay clean. But Goldstein, a 36-year-old Philadelphia native who grew up in Rittenhouse Square, was found dead Friday evening in his Manhattan apartment, where, police said, they found a crack pipe and prescription pills.

The Main Line dentist accused of dumping medical waste off the Jersey Shore last summer will have to stand trial. Thomas McFarland Jr., 60, who operated his practice from his Wynnewood home and owns a summer residence in the Avalon Manor section of Middle Township, yesterday was denied admission to a pre-trial intervention program. Acceptance would have allowed him to avoid court and eliminated the possibility of jail time. Eventually, his record would have been wiped clean.

The Main Line dentist accused of dumping medical waste off the Jersey Shore in August will not be permitted to enter a pretrial intervention program if the state Attorney General's Office has its way. At a hearing yesterday in state Superior Court in Cape May County, Deputy Attorney General Edward Bonanno declined to give specific reasons why his office opposed allowing Thomas McFarland, 59, of Wynnewood, into the program for first-time offenders....

As a crackdown on crime continues in Philadelphia, city officials are concerned it will only exacerbate a crisis in city prisons. Driven, in part, by a growing backlog of criminal cases, the daily jail count on April 19 reached 9,334 - a record in the city prison system's 320 years. And there's fear that a surge in arrests will put the city on a fast track to surpassing 10,000. The influx of inmates is expensive, draining tax dollars away from recreation programs, pothole repairs, and other general city services.

They had reasons for breaking curfew: They wanted to grab a late-night snack, visit a friend, or hang out on a street corner. But in Camden, one of America's most violent and crime-plagued cities, a simple trip to a convenience store can land them in harm's way or put them with the wrong crowd, and officials want to change that. To protect its youngest residents, the city is enforcing a decades-old curfew law with a new tactic. Rather than punish youths, authorities try to find out why they are loitering late at night, warn them about the dangers they could encounter on the streets, and offer solutions to help them follow the rules.

Here we go again. Another Irish play about another bunch of drunks. And another Conor McPherson play about spooky events and divine intervention. Another kind of intervention might be in order here, but The Seafarer, sometimes funny and sometimes sad, features a fine cast that can knock it back with the best of them. The production has transferred from London's National Theatre. Beneath all the crashing around and the unprintable-here language, this is a Christmas play, intending to warm the cockles of our hearts.

Notre Dame defensive end Derrell Hand, who was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of propositioning a prostitute, entered a pretrial diversion program yesterday. Charges will be dismissed against the West Catholic product on Aug. 16, 2008, if he meets such requirements as staying out of trouble and undergoing testing for HIV/AIDS and sexually transmitted diseases. Hand had not played for the Irish in his first two seasons but was expected to contribute this season. He was arrested during a prostitution sting by South Bend police on Aug. 2, 4 days before the start of practice.

In a few months, a new 10-foot statue of Bill Clinton will take its place overlooking Bill Clinton Boulevard - in the city of Pristina, capital of the breakaway province of Kosovo. Remember Kosovo? For a few months, it captured our attention. Now, while the American public looks elsewhere, the province is again becoming a test case for how much say the international community will have within the borders of a sovereign nation. The surprising answer - in Kosovo as in Darfur, and perhaps elsewhere - is that this community can and must have a say. Kosovo may be the turning point that lays noninterventionism down to a quiet sleep.

"Deconstructionist" Jim Primdahl has evolved a philosophy about dismantling and reusing buildings, and he has no doubt that a structure has a soul. But even Primdahl admits being a little shaken after a worker brought a 26-year-old black-and-white portable TV down from a room in the old Divine Lorraine Hotel at Broad Street and Fairmount Avenue in North Philadelphia. Primdahl turned on the TV to see whether it worked. The picture "flatlined," but the audio came through loud and clear: a preacher railing against sin and for salvation through Jesus Christ.
