Campaign finance reports show that two of the five candidates in the race for two judgeships in Chester County have spent heavily on radio and television advertising. First-time candidate Ellen Check Levy, a Democrat, launched her media blitz six weeks ago with ads on KYW News Radio (1060-AM) during the morning rush period. Levy's campaign finance records show that she spent $6,250 for just one week of those ads, which continue to run. She also hired a media consultant and invested thousands in cable TV ads. Levy, of Valley Forge, said yesterday that she realized early on that she had to pay for the exposure because she considered herself a political outsider in heavily Republican Chester County.

Lt. Col. Oliver L. North supervised the financing and production of a national media campaign designed to marshal support for aid to Nicaragua's rebels and undermine congressional foes of the U.S. assistance, sources involved in the program said. Such involvement by North, the fired National Security Council aide, would raise questions of propriety, and, perhaps, legality, since active-duty U.S. military officers and other government employees are barred by law from participation in partisan politics.

Pennsylvania utilities, regulators and law enforcement officials on Monday announced a media campaign to raise awareness about criminals posing as utility workers to gain access to homes. The Keystone Alliance to Stop Utility Imposters urges customers to closely check identification from anybody claiming to be a utility worker. It is rare for utility workers to show up at homes without an appointment. "Sadly, the number of incidents of imposters posing as legitimate utility workers is increasing," said State Rep. Mike Regan (R-York)

The governors of two of the nation's largest states and a possible Republican presidential candidate have been named co-chairmen of a California- based group campaigning for the Senate confirmation of federal Judge Robert H. Bork to a seat on the United States Supreme Court. Governors William P. Clements Jr. of Texas and Bob Martinez of Florida, and former Nevada Senator Paul Laxalt, were named yesterday by the group, which calls itself "We the People. " All three are Republicans.

It has been called a boondoggle and a waste of public dollars on a service that few people will ever use. But NJ Transit officials are suggesting a more positive spin on South Jersey's new light-rail system: "The perfect commuter car. " That is the theme of an advertising campaign introduced yesterday for the Camden-to-Trenton River Line. After more than a year of delays, the $1.1 billion project is on track to begin regular service March 14, a day after a planned inaugural ceremony and champagne christening, officials said.

Washington campaign consultant Roger Stone has agreed to help the Camden County Republicans develop a media campaign to win control of the county freeholder board in the November election, GOP leaders and Stone said yesterday. Stone, who was a consultant to George Bush's presidential campaign, said he would charge the Camden County Republicans $1 for helping coordinate their advertising and aid fund-raising. Stone said he decided to become involved in the campaign for two freeholder seats because of his high regard for Republican Freeholder Michael J. DiPiero.

With less than two months before SEPTA's main labor contract expires, the Transport Workers Union yesterday launched an unprecedented $500,000 media campaign contesting the management demand for dramatic changes in work rules. The biting tone of the first radio spot - "behind closed doors with SEPTA spin doctors" - is similar to the nastiest of political campaign commercials and underscores just how rancorous the contract talks have become. The broadcast offensive marks the first time that TWU Local 234 has taken its negotiating campaign to the airwaves, and it is scheduled to continue at least until the current contract expires March 15. The media drive is being financed largely by a special $60 assessment on each of the union's 5,600 members.

Sarah Murnaghan, the 11-year-old girl whose plight led to a national change in lung-transplant rules,  was released on Tuesday and is now back home in Newtown Square. Sarah, who has cystic fibrosis, entered Children's Hospital of Philadelphia in February in dire need of a double lung transplant. Although she remains very weak, she has made remarkable progress since June, when she received two double-lung transplants of adult organs within days. Sarah had waited 18 months for children's lungs before her family waged a media campaign and filed a federal lawsuit to have her placed on the adult-transplant waiting list.

President Bush issued a televised address to the Iraqi people yesterday, launching a massive media campaign that includes a daily newspaper and television and radio broadcasts. "The nightmare that Saddam Hussein has brought to your nation will soon be over," Bush said in the address, which was subtitled in Arabic. "In the new era that is coming to Iraq, your country will no longer be held captive to the will of a cruel dictator. " The address, broadcast on the new station Towards Freedom TV, included a similar message from British Prime Minister Tony Blair.

The Delaware River Port Authority yesterday allocated $14.85 million to promote the region as a tourist destination and to support economic-development projects in Camden and Southeastern Pennsylvania. The tourism funding included $2.25 million for a two-year media campaign by the Greater Philadelphia Tourism Marketing Corp. to promote regional attractions and events to area residents. The port authority said each dollar spent in a "well-designed, near-region marketing campaign" would generate about $80 in visitor spending.

A federal judge intervened Thursday to improve the odds that a second dying child could get a lung transplant from an adult donor in a fast-moving drama that has tugged at the public's heartstrings while raising concerns among ethicists. Just a day earlier, lawyers had persuaded U.S. District Judge Michael M. Baylson to suspend rules they said discriminated against children like Sarah Murnaghan of Newtown Square, a 10-year-old with end-stage cystic fibrosis. They returned to federal court Thursday and successfully argued for Javier Acosta, 11, of New York City, who suffers from the same progressive disease.

The Institute for Excellence Charter School of Winslow Township has known for a week that the New Jersey Department of Education won't renew its charter for the fall. Absent a reversal of that order, the 480-pupil school will have to close its doors permanently on June 28. But some parents, teachers and administrators at the embattled K-5 aren't waiting for its board to make a decision about whether to file a legal appeal. They have stepped up with an aggressive social media and grassroots campaign that targets Gov. Christie, the state legislature, the education department and TIFECS's board of trustees.

Reading her grandmother's diary descriptions on the way to Philadelphia, Susan Gibbs imagined the great ship in its heyday: ladies in their mink stoles, ballroom dancing, indoor pool, champagne, luxurious spa, and pleasant sea breezes. Her grandfather, William Francis Gibbs of Rittenhouse Square, had designed the world's fastest, safest, and most technologically advanced ocean liner - the SS United States - and saw its launch in 1951. His "queen of the seas" represented, for many, America's optimism and can-do spirit after World War II. The 2,000-passenger ship still holds the transatlantic speed record.

By Silvio Laccetti I was trapped inside, with torrents of reports, swirls of data, floods of facts, and gusts of wind endlessly battering my senses - until the screen went black. Hurricane Sandy? No. The presidential campaign in a swing state. I survived this scenario in one of them, Colorado, during a recent visit. I had never experienced anything like it before: four or five consecutive commercials for Mitt Romney or President Obama at a time, in rapid succession, and throughout the day and evening, each side contradicting the other in a head-spinning cyclone of blabber.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Pennsylvania State University is going on the offensive to restore its battered image. After months of reacting to one devastating development after another in the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal, university trustees Sunday charted a proactive strategy to rebuild faith in the campus. The approach, outlined on the final day of the board's annual retreat, includes implementing several recommendations offered last month in an internal report on the university's handling of the crisis, as well as launching a media campaign to emphasize Penn State's achievements.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Pennsylvania State University is going on the offensive to restore its battered image. After months of reacting to one devastating development after another in the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal, university trustees on Sunday charted a proactive strategy to rebuild faith in the campus.

Recent efforts at reputation rehabilitation by key players in the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal do not appear to have won over many Pennsylvanians, polling data released Saturday suggest. The Inquirer Pennsylvania Poll found the state's voters widely disapproved of the way figures such as former Pennsylvania State University president Graham B. Spanier, head football coach Joe Paterno, and Gov. Corbett handled allegations against the former assistant coach convicted in June of molesting 10 boys.
