THE 2013 EAGLES preseason officially gets underway tomorrow but one recent Philly transplant has more of an insider's view than most. And it ain't Chip Kelly . NBC10's Jacqueline London , who joined the station in March, happens to be married to former NFL player Tony McGee , a tight end who played 11 seasons in the NFL, split among the Cincinnati Bengals, Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants. The couple were married in 2010. London wore a gorgeous Monique Lhuillier silk gown, complete with intricately beaded bodice and "I do" appliqued on the heels of her Jimmy Choo shoes.

The old saying that there is no such thing as a free lunch didn't stop a number of New Jersey school employees from trying. A troubling recent report by the state comptroller uncovered widespread fraud in lunch programs that the federal government subsidizes to feed needy children. The investigation identified more than 100 people who allegedly lied about their income so that their children could get free or reduced-price meals. Even more egregiously, the culprits or their family members were on public payrolls, and they underreported their incomes by a staggering $13 million to get discounted meals.

Lakshmanan, who runs the mid-day meals program in the state, said in a telephone interview.

At 11:15 on a Monday morning, four children under age 8 quietly walked up to Andrea Cooper-Chamberlain's house in Darby Borough to eat. An unpaid neighborhood do-gooder, Cooper-Chamberlain distributes free lunch every day at noon during the summer, when school lunches are unavailable. "I can't serve till 12, sweetheart," she told the oldest boy, who displayed the unmistakable demeanor of a hungry child: expectant, quiet, attentive. He wordlessly turned and led the others away.

TRENTON - An investigation into 15 New Jersey school districts turned up more than 100 public employees and family members who lied about their incomes to get free school lunches for their children, according to the state comptroller. Their applications bolstered district enrollment figures in the federal free lunch program - a factor that allows school districts to receive more state aid. Designed to help low-income families, the federal program "has been compromised by widespread fraud," Comptroller Matthew Boxer said Wednesday, announcing the investigation results during a news conference at his office.

WHAT DOES a wife buy for Father's Day when she's married to one of the highest-paid athletes in the entire world? Kijafa Vick , wife of Eagles quarterback Michael Vick , is thinking of getting him some more golf gear but she told me, "I don't know. " She's right to hesitate. If you're Michael Vick and you want golfing items, you could buy out any sporting goods store you want. He probably has what he wants already. "I think I'm going to have a cookout and have his family come over and just be with him. I don't know what else to do for him," Kijafa said laughing.

It's the time of year when our attention turns to graduates and their commencement speakers. But at a lunch with a friend last Friday, our conversation was about the often unacknowledged: the teachers for whom we're grateful. I said that I'd been fortunate. My list is long, a product of a sound, K-12 education in the Central Bucks public schools, followed by four years at Lehigh University and three more at Penn Law. There are so many to whom I owe so much. But one in particular. David Curtis Amidon Jr. Truth be told, I was admitted to Lehigh as a legacy by virtue of my father and brother having received degrees before me. Before I arrived on campus, a fraternity brother (of my own brother)

Eagles tight end Brent Celek views his day job this way: "Football players have the easiest job in the world. " He and several silent partners, including teammate Todd Herremans, have opened Prime Stache , an American bistro, at 110 Chestnut St. in Old City. The site, with the same owners but under different management, previously was a bar called 879. Celek, 28, led a redecoration that included a marble-topped bar and reclaimed wood over a concrete floor. He rustled up a chef, Hee "Chino" Chang, who ran the kitchen at Redstone Grill in Marlton when Celek was a rookie and used to come in on Friday nights for feasts.

Tom's Lunch, which stood across from the Budd Co. factory in Nicetown, had a family history touching two families. It was named Pete's, after Tom Bezanis' father, when it opened in the 1920s in a tin shed on Hunting Park Avenue near Fox Street. But Tom told a Philadelphia Daily News reporter in 2003 that one day, Edward G. Budd, an executive of the family-owned firm and a regular customer, told Pete that he had bought the property and that Pete's would have to move nearby. The reporter wrote, "Budd built him a new place and said he'd never have to worry about the rent.

The cover art on the brochure for Shady Maple Smorgasbord - Lancaster County's largest - features a stainless-steel buffet trough reminiscent of an Army mess hall's and an aerial photograph that gives a taste of the dimensions of its Walmart-sized parking lot. An inside page depicts customers at the ready, poised to dig in. They are promised, right here in East Earl Township (between Morgantown, roughly, and New Holland), "200 feet of deliciously authentic Pennsylvania Dutch Cooking.
