The South Jersey Track Coaches Association boys' indoor championships last night at Haverford College concluded an interesting odyssey for the Camden track team this weekend. The Panthers left for Louisiana on Friday afternoon to compete in the Louisiana High School Track Classic at Louisiana State University, caught a flight back yesterday morning, and arrived four hours before yesterday's meet. The Panthers showed no ill effects from the trip. Camden captured four events, winning the 55-meter high hurdles, long jump, and the sprint medley and 4x400 relays.

The cool, gloomy skies that lowered over Philadelphia yesterday, crushing dreams of a long weekend capped by sunny barbecues and shimmering beaches, proved kind to Col. Elmer "Bud" Atkinson and his Union troops. For there they stood, 30 of them in authentic navy wool uniforms, white gloves, and black boots, bow ties and hats, solemnly marking the 104th Memorial Day at Independence Hall. A dozen women stood by, also in mid-1860s dress: hoop skirts, bonnets and straw hats, shawls.

This was supposed to be a travel story about our family trip to Winterlude, the annual festival in Ottawa. But we never got there. Instead, we spent our long weekend holed up in a Comfort Suites motel room in Upstate New York, watching TV and checking our daughter's pupils to make sure they were dilating. The plan had been ambitious from the start. Over President's Day weekend, we would make the 6 1/2- hour drive with our 13-year-old daughter, Avery, to St. Lawrence University, where our son, Chad, is a freshman.

Legend has it that actresses Mary Martin and Helen Hayes were once strolling down the Champs-Elysees discussing the importance of Americans' looking their very best when abroad. Out of the sky, a large bird plopped all over Martin's new Dior suit. Hayes braced herself for a seismic star fit. Instead Martin cracked a smile and glanced heavenward: "For some people," she said, "they sing. " And I'll bet her visit went much better after that. Paris isn't much fun if you're chasing some fabulously Olympian standard of dress and conduct, as if the city were some Parnassus that we can visit only when we're suitably evolved.

Hello there They had enjoyed talking shop at the public-media programmers and curators conference. They delighted each other with broader conversations at dinner with a dozen other new conference friends. But it wasn't until Chris and Hillary were posing for a group photo on her last day at the November 2014 gathering that Chris realized he didn't want to say goodbye. There was a film screening the next day. "You should stay," he said. Hillary felt the same spark Chris did but couldn't justify the big cost of changing her flight from San Diego back to Tucson, where she had lived since leaving Southampton, Bucks County, for college.

It seemed more like early April than late December outside, but many managed to get into the winter spirit yesterday at Penn's Landing. For one thing, trained sea lions had arrived for a show of acrobatics. And those humans enjoying a long weekend - or just a respite from the mall - could skate on the RiverRink, a perfect place to show off both their grace and their holiday gifts.

On the last long weekend of summer, there is nothing like a cookout to fill the belly . . . and the soul. The good folks of West Oak Lane know the fun of chowing down on barbecued chicken, corn on the cob and cole slaw. In a park at Ogontz and Stenton avenues, a group called the Residents Advisory Committee shared their Labor Day holiday with the less fortunate, feeding about 150 homeless people yesterday.

ICE ON the streets formed quickly, so I'm led to believe the city didn't get enough salt down under the snowfall. Briny treatments don't cut the mustard when it's cold. It's going to be a long weekend and a rough Monday. For this second major hit, I'm thinking a C-minus for Mayor Nutter. Frank Graff, Philadelphia

I awoke alone at 5:30 a.m. in a six-bed hostel room. It was still pitch black outside, as it typically is in Norway in December. The only sound came from the television, which I'd left on overnight - BBC News covering the awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize the previous day. I had been there. Well, I had stood outside Oslo City Hall as the king of Norway arrived for the ceremony, not knowing what the fuss was about until I returned to my big, empty room outside the airport. I had to fly back to Dublin that morning.

What about Amsterdam? It was a message from my friend. We were both college students spending the semester abroad in separate European cities, and it was the first time our breaks were aligning to spend a long weekend traveling together. I hadn't truly considered Amsterdam as a weekend destination, but she swayed me with Google images of canals and bikes, Dutch pancakes and stroop waffles, and an Airbnb houseboat (the last of which I declined). The high-speed train landed me in Amsterdam in less than four hours, dispatching the French and Belgians on the outskirts of the canal-filled city.

In the kindergarten Nativity play, he was Joseph and she was Mary. Thirty-two years later, their conception story was just as unlikely. Since the age of 14, Audrey had suffered severe endometriosis, as well as a rare uterine abnormality. She had endured two surgeries, taken birth control pills to control the bleeding and pain, and had long since given up on the possibility of childbearing. "I was always told by doctors that I would most likely never get pregnant, and if I did, I probably couldn't carry to term," she says.

Behind the "high walls" of the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul, Pope Francis spoke of a church that is "not about building walls, but about breaking them down. " He filled the city with that feeling across two days that united hundreds of thousands of visitors and residents alike in the spirit of two of his favorite words, joy and love - or, if you prefer, amor - taking particular account of the immigrants, prisoners, and dispossessed among us. And he accomplished this mass exercise in challenging barriers, ironically, amid an overweening security stance that provided most of the event's relatively few false notes.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: My cousin is getting married in a city about six hours from my home. My boyfriend went to undergrad there and has a few friends in the area. Our plan is to make a long weekend out of it and see his friends on Friday and attend the wedding on Saturday. My mother told me it was rude to see entirely different groups of people when in town for a wedding; that if we were planning to arrive early we should be spending the time with my family.
