Gov. Kean went to West Collingswood Heights yesterday for an interview on WKDN-FM, a nonprofit religious radio station. He was interviewed on a range of issues by station manager P. Michael Zeimann, at right. Above, while leaving the station at 2906 Mount Ephraim Ave., Kean is quizzed by Haddon Township Patrolman Joseph L. Tortoreto about the "20 and out" police retirement bill while Patrolman Joseph P. Gallagher and an unidentified plainclothes officer watch. Kean told Tortoreto that he would sign the legislation, allowing officers to retire at age 43, if it were put before him. The bill is stalled in the Assembly.

Lloyd McClendon had just walked outside the doors of the Phillies executive offices at Veterans Stadium yesterday afternoon when his cell phone rang. On the line was Pirates general manager Cam Bonifay, wanting to know how McClendon's interview to be the Phillies' next manager had gone. One reason Bonifay was so anxious is that his hitting coach is also under serious consideration for the Pirates' opening. "After meeting him, I'm not surprised," said general manager Ed Wade, who spent slightly more than 2 hours talking to McClendon along with assistant GM Ruben Amaro Jr. and scouting director Mike Arbuckle.

"Interview" is literate, well-paced and played at perfect pitch by Sienna Miller and director Steve Buscemi. I didn't buy it for more than two minutes. That's because it's about something that I do for a living - talking to actors - and nothing that happens in the other 84 minutes of this verbal jousting match remotely resembles anything I've ever experienced. So go right ahead and consider this a biased criticism. It's an informed one, but it shouldn't prevent you from enjoying a relatively well-crafted hothouse drama.

Roy Halladay is now the Phillies' ace, and is probably the preeminent pitcher in the National League. But in a Sporting News interview to be released this week, the righthander made a point to compliment his new No. 2, Cole Hamels, as well as his competition. "I'd never vote for myself," Halladay, 32, told the magazine when asked whether he was the best pitcher in the NL East. He said New York Mets lefthander Johan Santana "has always been fun to watch. The way Cole pitched in the playoffs a couple of years ago and at times last year, I think he's up there.

RONNIE NEWSOME finished up his day job at SEPTA, packed up his gear and headed out to interview rapper Redman. Assigning buses to operators, then interviewing hip-hop stars - that's nothing exceptional for Newsome: By day, he's a vehicle readiness coordinator, but by night he hosts "Franchise Live," a cable access show that is a mixture of music video and interviews with hip-hop personalities ranging from Redman to Lil' Mama to Notorious B.I.G.'s...

CBS college basketball analyst Billy Packer said he wasn't being insensitive or homophobic when he made a comment while being interviewed Friday from Atlanta on The Charlie Rose Show, which airs on PBS. At the end of the interview, Rose, who was in New York, asked Packer whether he needed a runner for the Final Four. "Because I could jump on a plane and could be there," Rose said. To that Packer responded, "You always fag out on that one for me, you know. You always say, oh, yes, I'm going to be the runner, then you never show up. " Audio and video clips of that interview have been appearing on Internet sites.

The Indianapolis Colts want offensive coordinator Bruce Arians to stick around a little longer. They also understand he wants to become an NFL head coach. On Thursday, the Colts said Arians had been granted permission to speak with the Chicago Bears about their coaching vacancy. It's unclear when the interview will take place because Indy will face AFC North champion Baltimore in a wild-card-round game Sunday. Chicago might not be the only team interested in the former Temple coach.

In this city, Ted Plumb might be considered more of an offensive pariah than any sort of genius. And Plumb never had been interviewed for an NFL head coaching job before yesterday - especially a job as coveted as the New York Jets' current opening. That did not stop new Jets general manager Dick Steinberg from formally interviewing Plumb, the Eagles' often-embattled offensive coordinator, for the job left vacant when Joe Walton was fired at the end of the regular season. Although Plumb, who has no pro or college head coaching experience, isn't believed to be a serious contender, and Michigan State coach George Perles could be named to the job as early as Tuesday, Plumb is one of only a handful of hopefuls to get an interview with Steinberg.

Playing for Notre Dame and the San Francisco 49ers didn't prepare Ricky Watters for the adversity that accompanies wearing an Eagles uniform this season. During an interview with ESPN's Roy Firestone that airs tonight at 8 o'clock on "Up Close," Watters acknowledged the boos from Eagles fans have rattled him. "It almost makes you want to give up," he says. "You see hate on their faces. " But the primary Eagles running back also says he understands why people boo: "They're saying they expect more out of you. " Watters says he believes the Philadelphia media were waiting to pounce on him. He refers to the media as "sharks" circling him before he even carried the ball.

THE PHILLY-BORN PiperWai brand doesn't look like drugstore deodorants and antiperspirants. Packaged in a teal-wrapped glass jar, the soft grey solid seems - and smells - more like a fancy candle than a morning hygiene standby that absorbs sweat and eliminates odor. But, judging from the product's 800-jars-a-day sales, that's what it does. Two West Mount Airy besties created PiperWai, named after a family dog and a tribe in Guyana, as an alternative to aluminum- and paraben-laden big-name brands.

FOR PHILLIES third base coach Juan Samuel, there is one way for big-leaguers to do things: the right way. There's a right way to run bases, a right way to anticipate a flyball in the outfield, a right way to focus when you play infield. It has always been this way for Samuel, ever since the Phillies in 1980 signed the 19-year-old five-tool talent, discovered playing softball in the Dominican Republic. Samuel broke into the majors just in time to help the 1983 Phillies reach the World Series and played 16 years in the majors.

LIKE SO MANY Philadelphians, Craig Stroman used to walk past homeless people without opening his wallet or his heart to them. That all changed in February 2010, when a young girl emerging from a tent pitched near a Vine Street Expressway off-ramp - in a snowstorm - moved him to act. "I did a lot of praying after I saw that girl," he says. "I was feeling a lot of guilt about the way I acted before. Then, one day it just came to me that I could take food out to feed people. " With his best friend, his sister, and two of his sister's friends, Stroman went to LOVE Park with sandwiches one day that April, and We Feed the Homeless Philly was born.

Earlier this month, a major new study brought hopeful news about type 2 diabetes. Nationwide, nearly 30 million people have diabetes, according to the American Diabetes Association. The vast majority of them have type 2 diabetes, a chronic condition in which blood glucose - sugar - builds up because the body doesn't properly use the regulatory hormone insulin. Once known as "adult-onset" diabetes, the diagnosis is rising swiftly and now affects all ages. It is related to lifestyle - poor diet and lack of exercise.

Police on Monday disputed a Feasterville man's claim that he told officers a year ago about disturbing activity at his neighbor's house, where authorities say 51-year-old Lee Kaplan was living with 12 girls, including two children he fathered with a Lancaster County teen "gifted" to him by her parents. Investigators interviewed the girls Monday, but declined to discuss the conversations. They did, however, push back after a slow drip of suggestions from neighbors that their suspicions or warnings went unheeded until Kaplan's arrest last week.
