"We've got millions of dollars of waste in government all through the area through antiquated purchasing procedures.

Songwriter and computer analyst Karl Zielinski has been threatening Channel 3 news anchor Larry Kane since the 1980s. Most of the threats were over the telephone, said Assistant District Attorney Sean M. Reilly. But on Aug. 13, Zielinski, 36, of Maryland, went farther. He called Kane and told the newsman he was going "to meet Elvis and John Lennon," Reilly said. That night, Zielinski showed up at KYW's studio at 5th and Market streets and asked a guard to fetch Kane. "I just want to kill the bastard and get out of here," Zielinski told the guard.

Nineteen years ago last month, an impromptu visit to an east Jerusalem restaurant landed anchorman Larry Kane on the front page of the Daily News, right under a huge headline ("Peace") heralding the signing of the historic Camp David accord. "Near-miss for Kane" described a grenade attack on the Sea Dolphin restaurant where Kane, then working for Channel 10, and his crew had been eating with a Philadelphia-born Israeli soldier and his wife the night before. "I will always remember this because of what I was eating," Kane said last week.

Larry Kane figures he has probably interviewed Cardinal John Krol "more times than anybody in television. " Given the evidence, this is no boast. Though Kane said yesterday he has "lost count" of the number of times he and Krol have crossed professional paths, their association dates back to July 1967, when Kane was reporting for both Channel 6 and WFIL radio and Krol had been installed as cardinal. Since then, Kane, now an anchor for Channel 10, has been all over the world with Krol on various missions.

Larry Kane, the dean of Philadelphia's TV news anchors, will step down Dec. 23, capping 35 years on the air here. "I have had enough of anchoring for now," the 60-year-old KYW-TV broadcaster said in an interview yesterday.

Kane is the only person to have anchored for all three major TV network affiliates in the nation's fourth-largest TV market.

When asked which personalities he would put on a theoretical "Mount Rushmore" of local TV personalities, local TV historian-author Bill Shull's first three honorees were not that surprising: Larry Kane, the only person to quarterback news teams at all three of the city's VHF-band commercial outlets; Channel 6 news and talk-show star Jim O'Brien; and John Facenda, the Channel 10 news anchor who also gained national stardom as the long-tenured "voice" of...

Fifty years ago today, The Beatles hit Philly, almost eight months after their epochal first appearance on "The Ed Sullivan Show. " They performed at Convention Hall, at 34th and Civic Center Boulevard. The show was promoted by Hy Lit, of WIBG-AM ("Wibbage")

BURIED DEEP in the bowels of the 6ABC complex, at City Avenue and Monument Road, is a heavily guarded room that contains the mounted heads of the dozens (if not scores) of executives who, during the past 35 years, have come to Philadelphia determined to knock that station from its perch as the market's dominant provider of television news. OK, that isn't true. But the point is, even if it were, that wouldn't keep Anzio Williams from being the latest to challenge "Action News," whose decades-long death grip on the hearts, minds and eyeballs of local residents is unprecedented in the broadcasting industry.
