The manager of a pool hall in Doylestown Borough and another man have been charged with providing beer to minors during a New Year's party that got out of hand, borough police said Thursday. Manager Victor Mayda, 39, of Philadelphia, and Brian Best, 21, of Furlong, were charged Tuesday under the state Liquor Control Act for serving beer to minors during a private party at the Billiard Club on Atkinson Drive, which Best had organized, said Sgt. Joe Kissel. Best had bought soda for the youths, who were 15 and older, and some cases of beer for those of legal age, but other youths came whom Best did not know, Kissel said, and "the party got out of control.

After just four games against the Phillies, Atlanta's Mark Wohlers was sent to the minors. Again. The righthanded closer was a flop in two relief appearances in the Braves' first four games of the season. Atlanta manager Bobby Cox said Wohlers would report to triple-A Richmond. The 29-year-old, who lost his closer job last season when he couldn't throw strikes, agreed to go back down to the minors to try to regain his form. Wohlers was not available for comment. He faced three batters in Thursday night's 6-3 loss to the Phillies, walking two batters on four consecutive balls and throwing a sacrifice wildly over first baseman Ryan Klesko's head before Cox removed him. The Phillies tied an NL record by using five pitchers in the eighth inning of their win Thursday night against the Braves.

Fund-raising events are given in such forms as chance drives, carnivals or beef-and-beers in different parts of Philadelphia. Organizations initiate these events for the benefit of a needy foundation. They are all rather harmless, except for beef-and-beers. A beef-and-beer, sometimes known as a ten-dollar night, consists of a donation ($10 or more) entitling the purchaser to four hours of food, beer and dancing. These beef-and-beers sound harmless and very enjoyable and profitable for the host, but to neighbors of the Port Richmond area they are nothing but problems.

Paul Graeser would ply the two 12-year-old girls with liquor, make them dance naked and wait for them to pass out. Then he would rape them. How do authorities know? Graeser, 47, made it easy. He videotaped the encounters at his home on Smedley Street near Moyamensing Avenue in South Philadelphia. Yesterday, after Graeser, a tow-truck operator, pleaded guilty to rape, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and corrupting the morals of minors, Assistant District Attorney Charles Ehrlich asked Common Pleas Judge Anne E. Lazarus to view the tapes before the scheduled July sentencing.

The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Red Barons' game with Columbus was halted because of rain last night in Moosic, Pa., after the top of the third inning. It will be resumed as part of a doubleheader tonight. The Red Barons were leading, 3-2, when the triple-A Alliance game was stopped. The teams will meet at 6 tonight to complete the game, which will go nine innings. The game originally scheduled for tonight will last just seven innings, the standard length of league games that are part of doubleheaders.

The Pittsburgh Penguins yesterday sent 14-year NHL veteran Wilf Paiement to Muskegon of the International Hockey League "to get his game back in order," said general manager Eddie Johnston. Paiement, a 32-year-old right winger, has only two goals and five assists in 17 games this season. He has never played a minor-league game in his pro career. Paiement was signed as a free agent in July after scoring 20 goals and collecting 17 assists for Buffalo last season. Former Vancouver Canucks defenseman Jiri Bubla has been convicted in an Austrian court for playing a role in an international drug-smuggling ring, a Royal Canadian Mounted Police spokesman in Vancouver said.

Phillies righthander Todd Frohwirth said last night he's considering becoming a free agent rather than reporting to Triple A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. All major league teams had to reduce their rosters from 27 to no more than 25 by midnight yesterday. Called in to get the bad news after last night's game were righthander Brad Moore and Frohwirth. "They were the two that weren't getting enough work," manager Nick Leyva explained. "Todd Frohwirth needs to pitch on a daily basis to be successful and there's no way he could do that here.

Salomon Torres, San Francisco's struggling rookie righthander, was optioned to triple-A Phoenix, ending a tumultuous 24-game stint in the majors. Torres, 22, was sent down to make room for Mark Portugal, who was activated from the disabled list. "I told him, 'Just go down and work hard and learn to relax,' " Giants manager Dusty Baker said. Torres (2-8) had lost six straight starts. Frustrated, he left the Giants on June 19 without permission, missing a team flight to Cincinnati.

The Phillies appear ready to dispatch Floyd Youmans to the minor leagues rather than release him. General manager Lee Thomas said last night that he was leaning in that direction, although a decision on the disappointing pitcher is not likely until Friday, when the Phillies will return home. "One option would be to release him or outright him," Thomas said. "Another option would be for him to go to the minors, and we will decide in the next day or two what to do. "He's not going to start for us right now, with the way he's been throwing.

With Mark Portugal ready to come off the disabled list in time to make his first Phillies start Saturday night against the Expos, the Phillies find themselves in the all-too-familiar position of having to make a roster move. Portugal will replace Michael Mimbs in the rotation. It seems likely, however, Mimbs will remain in the bullpen as a second lefthander, along with Erik Plantenberg. "Mimbsie is intriguing," manager Terry Francona said. "The idea is to get him consistent, but he throws 90 [mph]

THIS COLUMN is a limited tip of the hat to Congressman Brendan Boyle. Boyle represents Northeast Philadelphia and parts of Montgomery County. He was on my show last week voicing his opposition to bringing the "unaccompanied minors" to Northeast Philadelphia. These kids from Central America and Mexico were brought to our borders by coyotes or others and are in various spots in our country waiting for their legal status to be decided. Boyle confirmed to me that the Obama administration has briefed him on the fact that the Naval Support Activity complex in the city's Lawndale section would house those minors.

Developing a more specific gender-based marketing plan to engage minorities in clinical trials may increase participation. In a new study conducted by Temple University professor Sarah Bauerle Bass, minority men and women with HIV were interviewed about what they perceived as barriers to entering a medication clinical trial. The researchers then used a marketing technique called perceptual mapping to break down how the sexes differed in their responses. "Perceptual mapping allows us to tailor very specific messages to address exactly what issues are for specific groups," said Bass.

CHICAGO - Nerlens Noel's left eye injury is not as significant as the 76ers may have thought. The power forward was not with the team Monday night for the game against the Chicago Bulls at the United Center. The team does not expect him to play Wednesday night in Atlanta against the Hawks. The Sixers said Noel suffered a corneal abrasion Sunday in the third quarter of their loss in Toronto. The 6-foot-11, 223-pounder was elbowed by Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry and was taken to an area hospital.

Righthanders Frank Herrmann, Chris Leroux and Reiner Roibal and infielders Emmanuel Burriss and Ryan Jackson will come to the team's major-league spring training as non-roster invitees. Leroux, 31, and Roibal, 26, were in the Phillies' organization last season. Burriss, 30, is a second baseman and shortstop who spent last season in the Washington Nationals system, appearing in five games at the major-league level.

Peco Energy Co. and its parent company, Exelon Corp., have arranged credit lines totaling $41.8 million with nine minority and community-owned banks located in Peco's service area, part of a broader Exelon effort to secure a more diverse supply for $123 million in credit lines. United Bank of Philadelphia served as a lead arranger for Peco's $34 million credit facility, of which the nine local banks contributed $19.8 million, said Ben Armstrong, a Peco spokesman. Exelon says its minority and community banking program, which is administered by JPMorgan Chase, has more than tripled in credit-facility size and quadrupled the number of participating banks since it began in 2003.

As most political races in Philadelphia (the mayor's fray, for one) slide toward sleepy Nov. 3 conclusions, voters may want to remember that not all is said and done. The competition is still thriving for two City Council seats, spots reserved by law for the minority party. Traditionally they are held by Republicans, and incumbent Councilmen David Oh and Dennis O'Brien are hoping that holds true. But a contingent of outsider candidates is working against the tide, trying to capture the same wave that in the May 19 primary led to the ouster of two Democratic councilmen who had party backing.

A COUPLE of months ago, while talking about the productive season that a number of the Phillies affiliates were having, former general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. beamed in particular when the name of Clearwater righthander Ricardo Pinto was mentioned. More than a few others have had similar reactions when the 21-year-old Venezuelan has come up in conversation. Their eyes grow big, as if they were the kid at Christmas who finds a gift hidden back in the far corner under the tree well after the presents have been opened.

Hollywood continues to cannibalize its past with another pair of new dramas this week on Fox that should be awarded prizes for marginality. The slick sci-fi thriller Minority Report , premiering 9 p.m. Monday, is an unimaginative riff on Steven Spielberg's 2002 big-screen hit. While the network's Morris Chestnut vehicle Rosewood , set for 8 p.m. Wednesday, is a tiresome procedural about a crime-solving pathologist that rips off every cop and...

Teachers of color continue to be underrepresented in Philadelphia and across the country, according to a study released Wednesday. In particular, the number of black teachers in nine large cities dropped between 2002 and 2012, researchers for the Albert Shanker Institute found. That means many school districts - including Philadelphia's - aren't doing enough to recruit and retain a diverse teaching force, union officials said. Three of every four Philadelphia students were black or Hispanic in 2012.
