This year, it will be different. As a first-day-of-spring-training promise, it doesn't get any more standard than that. Players have always worked harder then ever before, have reported in the best shape of their career, are finally prepared to hurdle whatever obstacle has been standing between them and the Hall of Fame. Still, when Gregg Jefferies pulled on his uniform for the first time yesterday, two days before the first mandatory full-squad workout, those familiar sentiments almost shrieked with significance.

As the city's politicians prepare for the next round in the city's budget wars, they might spend some time researching what recently happened in the SEPTA negotiations. For years, SEPTA's budget problems have been almost as bad as those that threaten the city, as well as intense dislike - sometimes absolute hatred - within the SEPTA family. The unions hated management; management ignored the board; the board would go around management to cut its own deals. No more. There is a new attitude in SEPTA these days.

Tom Plotts met a number of tough opponents last season, but none tougher than the scale he encountered before each bout. Plotts, who is 5-foot-6, struggled before every match to make 103 pounds, and the constant weight gain and loss ultimately ended his season prematurely last year. With a new attitude and better knowledge of the aspects of weight control, the Collingswood junior is attempting to wrestle at 103 again this season. "That's where I want to go, because I think I can win a state title at that weight," Plotts said.

Mike Lanci couldn't believe what he was hearing. The Ridley senior stood at his locker last week and watched two students argue over which of Ridley's sports teams were contenders for Central League titles. "I tell you, it's just the football team that has a chance," one student said. "No, it's the cross-country team that'll win the league," the other said. Lanci just smiled. He wasn't accustomed to hearing people talk about Ridley cross-country. The program has been dormant for more than 20 years, with the team usually finishing in the lower half of the league standings.

Patti LaBelle was testing the waters at the shore on Wednesday night as she began a five-night stand at the Tropicana's Tiffany Showroom. In the coming months, she'll once again attempt to make a splash on the national pop-culture scene. After a sweet taste of success with the disco hit "Lady Marmalade" in 1975, and major inroads toward mainstream fame with the 1984 single "New Attitude" and 1986 LP Winner in You, the Philadelphia native is poised to take the plunge again and perhaps attain the superstardom she has strived for throughout an erratic 25-year career.

First-year Penn State men's basketball coach Pat Chambers wears one of two looks on the sideline. The first is stern - pursed lips, squinting eyes, crossed arms. The second is a little less reserved - arms often flailing or hands cupped around his mouth as he shouts to players and referees while stomping on the hardwood. Though the 2011-12 season hasn't gone as well as the Nittany Lions (12-18, 4-13 Big Ten Conference) would have liked, Chambers' demeanor epitomizes the excitement surrounding a program that has made the NCAA tournament just four times in the last 21 years.

It was bound to happen last year to La Salle's Jeff Huntzinger. He would play well, then botch an easy shot. He would think a little bit, and then bungle another shot. Before he knew it, Huntzinger lost his brakes, careening out of control on the golf course. He was his own harshest critic. This summer, he challenged himself to find his brake pedal and know when to pull back before he got sucked in. Now a composed, more self-assured senior, Huntzinger should be among the best golfers in the Catholic League this spring.

For more than 50 years, Patti LaBelle, the pride of Southwest Philadelphia, has owned center stage, effortlessly blowing her audiences away with vocal highs in "New Attitude" and "Over the Rainbow" and sultry, soul-stirring lows in "Little Girls" and "You Are My Friend. " But starting Monday at 8 p.m., the soul-music icon will embark on a new endeavor that, she admits, has her shaking in her stilettos. LaBelle will compete in the 20th season of ABC's hit show Dancing With the Stars . Her partner, Artem Chigvintsev, might have a hard time keeping up with LaBelle.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Self-centeredness is an epidemic these days, and, to some extent, we all are part of it. Before you make your presentation, pitch, or explanation, make sure others know why it's relevant to them. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). About the endeavor that once terrified you: As you get past trepidation and on to the rewards for taking action, you can't believe you were ever afraid. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). From Vito Corleone to Mike Tyson to Anjelica Huston in any role she's ever played, the ones who speak softly often have such strong intentions and methods that taxing their vocal cords seems completely unnecessary.

The 2015 Toyota Yaris SE Liftback: When money is an object. Price: $18,824 as tested (including $280 for four-season floor mats and $899 for navigation upgrade). Conventional wisdom: Edmunds.com notes "dramatic new front-end styling highlights the changes made to the 2015 Toyota Yaris, along with a stronger body structure, some higher-quality interior materials and more standard equipment. They're commendable updates, but they don't go far enough to push the Yaris ahead of its competitors.

'TIS THE NEW era of the emancipated fairy-tale princess. The immensely popular "Frozen" has the queenly heroine Elsa going it alone, and her princess sister Anna wisely freezing out a bad suitor (before finally finding Mr. Right). And a fresh stage revamp of "Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella" - on Broadway and opening here in a new touring version tomorrow - features a rags-to-riches heroine with lotsa backbone and ambition, as well as magic at her disposal. "She's not the typical doormat Cinderella, just suffering abuse from her wicked stepmother and stepsisters" said Douglas Carter Beane, the Reading-born script writer.

It's sort of a new attitude - just one word, really. And Lauren Moses was thinking it as she walked to midcourt for the opening tip. "I'm just thinking: attack," the 6-foot-1 forward said. "That's been on my mind in every part of the game recently. " The ball went up. Dominique Ward tapped it to Moses, and as a quarterback would, Moses threw a laser down court, where Sabrina Jackson was waiting to lay the ball in. Four seconds was all it took for the Rancocas Valley girls' basketball team to set the tone in Wednesday night's 74-55 home win over Willingboro.

When Shahid Paulhill and Kadeem Custis were dismissed from the Temple football team for insubordination last December, it looked as if their promising careers were over. Eight months later, the defensive linemen say the dismissals were the turning points of their careers. "I did everything in my power, man, to stay with the Owls with academics and developing a good relationship with the coaches," said Custis, a senior defensive end from Neumann-Goretti High School. "I understand that I was a distraction last year.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - One year ago, Nnamdi Asomugha's training camp became marked by a whirlwind of installation and instability. He signed with the Eagles on the third day of camp and could not practice for nearly a week. Two days after agreeing to terms, Asomugha couldn't explain how he might fit in the Eagles defense. The season was six weeks away. This year's camp has been different. Asomugha walked out after practice Saturday wearing a black T-shirt with the cover image of the Beatles album Abbey Road . The first track is titled "Come Together," which serves as a fitting description of Asomugha's second summer at Lehigh.
