'To suffer love. " This unusual line appears three times in quick order toward the end of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing . Philadelphia Shakespeare Theatre's fresh, exuberant production illuminates the Bard's theme with a fullness and flourish. Much of Much Ado centers on the unwilling affection building between Beatrice (Eleni Delopoulos) and Benedick (Chance Dean), a proud maid and professed bachelor trading jaded barbs about how they will never marry, especially not each other.

People buy flowers for their sweethearts all year round, but Valentine's Day is the day to go public with love. A simple bunch of daisies will not do. No, for maximum points, a long white box must arrive, a box that can contain only one thing: a dozen roses. Yesterday, Charles F. Kremp 3d Florists of Willow Grove was busy delivering these fragile symbols of love.

ETTA ARDELLA Green Bell had a listening ear. Family, friends and neighbors knew they could go to her with any concern, or just to be in the presence of someone they could talk to, someone who cared and heard them without judgment. And you knew that Etta Bell was hearing you and that she felt your pain - or your joy. In fact, it was hard to be despondent or in a bad mood in her presence, because Etta Bell was just naturally a happy person. Her smile could light up a room. What's more, Etta had a wisdom born of life's lessons and her religious faith to offer help to those who needed her guidance, or just to receive a word of encouragement to press on. Etta Bell, a devoted family matron and active churchwoman, died July 17 of natural causes.

Hello there   On her summer 2005 tour of the University of Pittsburgh, Caroline was impressed with the campus, obsessed with the gold-and-navy-blue-striped rugby shirts worn by the student guides called Pathfinders, and determined to become a Pathfinder herself. That fall, she was leaving her first Pathfinders meeting when one of the rowdy sophomores who had hooted and hollered as the new guides introduced themselves walked up to her. "Hi, I'm Alex," he said. Caroline, who grew up in Media, had graduated from the all-girls' Country Day School of the Sacred Heart in Bryn Mawr.

At certain quarterly-earnings conference calls in the casino industry, the condition of Atlantic City inevitably comes up. Here's how that went Tuesday when Gaming & Leisure Properties Inc., spun off last year to own Penn National Gaming Inc.'s real estate, discussed its second-quarter earnings. An exchange with Joel Simkins, a Credit Suisse gambling analyst, showed just how far Atlantic City has fallen in the estimation of some gambling executives. The plan for Gaming & Leisure Properties, of Wyomissing, Pa., was to buy additional casino real estate, while renting the properties to other companies that will run the gambling operations.

CORTLAND, N.Y. - Michael Vick made a play Tuesday that made you catch your breath - because even though he is 34 years old and spent 18 months in prison and is about to begin his 12th season in the NFL, he is still good for at least one play in any practice or game that will make you catch your breath. This time he was gliding backward in the pocket during a brief intrasquad scrimmage with his new team, the New York Jets, when he snapped his left arm downward to throw a 10-yard out to wide receiver Greg Salas.

Mike Cahill's debut feature, Another Earth , showed with much grace and visual splendor that the most fantastical, grand sci-fi tropes - say, the sudden appearance of a parallel universe in our own - could be metaphors for much more intimate aspects of the human condition. Cahill, who won a Sundance special jury prize for the 2011 film, this time delivers a dose of science fact with his follow-up, I Origins , opening Friday, an arresting piece that touches on religion, evolution, reincarnation, and the nature of the human soul.

W EARING A white shirt that said, "End terrorism, support Israel," Rachel Rosenberg, 24, of Spring Garden, said she wanted to educate people that Hamas is a terrorist group responsible for most of the civilian deaths in Gaza. Across the street, Alex Ibrahim, 26, a Palestinian Muslim who lives in North Philadelphia, said he wanted the bombings to stop - especially from Israelis, who he said are targeting civilians and children. At a rally featuring speakers ranging from local religious leaders to politicians, several hundred pro-Israel supporters gathered in LOVE Park yesterday to show solidarity for the country and its right to defend itself.

Hello there They first spoke at a November 2002 track practice at Cherry Hill High School West. Elizabeth, whose family had recently moved from Phoenix to Cherry Hill, hardly knew anyone back then. Ted, who had never lived anywhere else, knew everybody. Ted laughed along when Elizabeth jokingly called him Tim or Todd, poking fun because their coach could never remember his name. And they commiserated about their lockers' location, so far from the freshman classes that they had to carry their books all day. "I totally had a crush on Ted," Elizabeth said.

Diagnosed with cerebral palsy, Cami needs leg braces and, except when she is home, uses forearm crutches. But that hasn't stopped this bubbly, polite 17-year-old with the curly red hair and the beautiful smile. She loves going to karate class and church, shopping, swimming, and watching TV. She is also looking forward to starting 12th grade in the fall. She enjoys school, where she receives special-education services, and especially likes her life-skills classes. If Cami had three wishes, they would be a computer, a new TV/DVR, and a vacation trip, preferably to Disney World.
