RE CHRISTINE Flowers' op-ed on the New Jersey gay-marriage decision: Her article was right on. I wonder how many people, when they go to vote, actually take the time to do background checks on the judges they vote for? The liberal-left judicial branch of federal, state and even local jurisdictions is attempting to force their interpretations and agendas on all of us - whether we like it or not. As an ex-public official, I've lived this. Unfortunately, people are too stupid or lazy to realize that it's happening.

Q: I've had a fungus infection of the large toes for at least 14 years. All efforts, topical and internal, have failed to kill it. My doctor says he can only slow the infection down, but cannot cure it. Any advice? A: Try griseofulvin (Fulvicin), a prescription oral anti-fungus remedy. You would have to take it for several months to eradicate the yeast, particularly in the nailbed. As an alternative, buy herbal La-Pacho tea (in health food stores or supermarkets), steep it and soak your feet in it twice a day. Q: What cause nocturnal leg cramps, and what can be done for them?

Keane Daniels, 20, of the 500 block of Haverford Court, Ardmore, fled the township garage on Kromer Road after the incident Monday morning, Radnor police said. Police then issued a warrant for his arrest on charges of aggravated assault, simple assault, reckless endangerment and terroristic threats.

The cops who stopped a van in Montgomery County in January 1987 got a surprise when they opened a 55-gallon drum and found a body stuffed inside. The body was that of German Arrango Vargas, 32, who had made the mistake of annoying a gang of North Philadelphia drug peddlers, police said. Vargas' end was not pleasant, according to testimony yesterday by Ramon Santiago, a gang member who is cooperating with authorities. On Jan. 9, 1987, the day before the murder, Santiago said, Vargas, whom the gang members suspected of cheating them, was tied up and left next to nine bulldogs on the second floor of a garage on Marshall Street near Cambria.

Fred Wilson, 31, made a hit recording in 1995, but he didn't get to hear it until he got to a courtroom. That's because it was a secret tape recording made by a police informant in which Wilson admits he sent two hit men to the West Oak Lane home of a building contractor to rob and kill him on Oct. 4, 1996, said Assistant District Attorney Edward McCann. On the tape, Wilson calls the slayers of Benjamin Milla, 40, of Fayette Street near Washington Lane, "cold-blooded killers," men who "make sure" they finish off their victims, because "that's the way they work.

If you had asked Jade Starling what "The Beautyworx" was five years ago, she probably would have shrugged her shoulders. But today, the lead singer of the local pop band Pretty Poison will tell you that that it's the only place she'll go to have her trademark nails done. That, said Starling, 28, is because the only person she trusts to do the elaborate airbrush artwork on her nails is Lois Burak, owner of the Beautyworx. It's a perfect match - a musician who wanted to be a beautician seeking out a beautician who wanted to be a musician.

Cutting a pet's nails is a task detested by even the most experienced animal owners. Dogs and cats will fight like tigers to avoid it, but it is a necessary task. Neglected nails can grow painfully into the pet's footpad. They can also ruin your carpets, furniture and curtains. Train the pet to accept nail-clipping as you would brushing. Put it on your lap or lying close to you. Stroke it and then, casually, touch its feet. Do not try to clip. Handle the pet, with increasing attention to the feet, for a week before attempting to clip.

Donald Ray Adams shot and killed two men in an alley in 1990, but spared the life of a woman eyewitness. The oversight proved costly. The witness testified this week at his trial, and yesterday a Common Pleas jury convicted Adams of first-degree murder for one killing, and second-degree murder for the other. Judge Carolyn E. Temin ordered a sentencing hearing for tomorrow. Assistant District Attorney David Desiderio will ask the jury to sentence Adams, of Warnock Street near Rockland, to die. Evidence shows that Adams had approached Darryl Patterson, 33, of Cecil B. Moore Avenue near 31st Street, on Dec. 22, 1990, to buy cocaine.

With so much attention for the debut of Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz, the defense under new coordinator Jim Schwartz also hit the ground running in the season opener on Sunday. Granted, the Eagles faced a Cleveland offense won't be confused with the elite of the NFL, but there were still many positives defensively in the 29-10 win over the Browns at Lincoln Financial Field. Besides holding Cleveland to 10 points, including three in the second half, the Eagles limited the Browns to 288 yards.

William "Howard" Fritz IV was 6 when he got his first job at his family's lumberyard in Berwyn. He was the "nail picker-upper. " During weighing, nails fell out of bags, and the boy was tasked with recovering them - making him the fifth-generation Fritz to serve the building needs of the growing Chester County community. After an hour, his father, who was 9 when he started as a sweeper, returned to count the collected nails. There were a half-dozen. He bent down, hands on knees, and looked his son in the eyes.

Question: Is there anything I can do to get my wife to suspend a habit for a few months? A family wedding is coming up, and she has the full outfit, will be getting her hair done, all the details. The crowning touch for me would be if she could stop picking at her fingers long enough for them to heal - they are often bloody as the result of this compulsive behavior. This has been a longtime issue for me, and my attempts at expressing concern have never been well received. Basically, I've been told, angrily, to butt out. Is there a way I can approach this?

Kevin Washo, executive director of the Democratic National Convention's Host Committee , attended an early-morning news conference and several afternoon meetings one recent Thursday, dressed in what might be considered boring, conservative blah: a blue blazer, gray slacks, and brown, spit-shined shoes. But the dandiness - for which Washo is becoming known around town - is in the details. His navy blazer is tailored, not the uber-stylish shrunken look. The slim-fit trousers were plaid, flat-fronted, and with a watch pocket.

DEAR ABBY: I am in shock. My grown son, "Ryan," recently told me that he was molested by his late father when he was a young boy. I had no idea, but I believe him. Ryan is an only child and has recently started seeing a counselor. I loved my husband very much, and I believed he loved me, but I no longer know what to think or how to feel. If he were still alive, I would most likely leave him. But what do I do with more than 40 years of mostly good memories? When I think about my late husband now, I just feel numb.

I no longer have a deck, but the memories of how needy those structures could be over the long haul linger. I remember being so busy during the spring and summer one year that I waited until late October to wash and waterproof the deck. It was a warm spell, and I coated it by the light of the full moon at 5 a.m. Be that as it may, here are some tips to better deck care, courtesy of Trex, which manufacturers decking: Nail pops and splintering are common occurrences with any type of wood deck, especially after a winter of fluctuating temperatures and precipitation.

Up on screen is Goldie Hawn as Judy, the title figure in Private Benjamin (1980), a twice-wed, once-widowed Philadelphia princess who finds herself, both as a military strategist and as a woman. After Judy spends a blissful night with a male civilian, she reflects, "Now I know what I've been faking all these years.

Water, sunlight, and construction nails have been showering the plants at one of Center City's most popular community gardens. Among the blooming flowers, tomatoes, and herbs is the occasional two–by–four sticking out of a plot of soil. So far, the nails and other construction detritus has resulted in closures, meetings, special committees, and input from a lawyer. On Monday, after another meeting, a solution was reached. It involves a task force. The problem began when Dranoff Properties and contractor Intech began construction of One Riverside, a 22-story residential tower at 210 S. 25th St. The Schuylkill River Park Community Garden is its immediate neighbor to the south.

Contemporary nail shapes are like math equations: Square + oval = squoval. Long + pointy = stiletto. The trendlet Long + square = coffin. The newest style may sound morose - in the 1800s, "coffin nails" were slang for cigarettes - but the mini-squared-off fingertips in spring lilacs and corals are giving 2016 fingertips quite a mod look. Where does it come from? Long nails were trendy in the 18th century, when they were known as filberts. However, by the 1900s, after a decree from Queen Victoria, who found stiletto-shaped nails offensive, they were round and short.

Wear those nails short and neutral, unless you are willing to experiment. Then, we say, go long. The trendlet The stiletto nail - ranging from midi to lengthy and coming to a triangular point - is bringing attention to our fingertips. Variations of the pointy nail like the ballerina (it has a blunt tip like the toe shoe) and the almond nail (this is rounder) are making manicures this holiday season interesting. Where's it come from? In the 17th century, well-to-do Chinese women liked to wear nails super-long and pointy to show their status.
