Weather forecasters say revelers at Super Bowl parties to the north and east of the city could face a dusting or a few inches of snow as they head home Sunday night. But in Philadelphia, "a sloppy, wintry mix" is expected late Sunday and into Monday, said Dean Iovino, a meteorologist at the National Weather Bureau in Mount Holly. During the day, light snow will come in from the west and will change into sleet or freezing rain at night as the high temperatures hover in the mid-30s, he said.

Last year, Jimmy and Angela Clark bought Independence Blue Cross' best-selling silver Proactive plan. For the first time in five years, the Germantown couple had health insurance. And they loved it. Having coverage was especially important to Jimmy Clark, 62, who needs blood tests every six months to track high cholesterol. He also needs a colonoscopy every three years - something that, until last year, he pretty much had to forgo. "I got back on [a plan], and colonoscopies are free," said Clark, who got a clean bill of health.

Scientists who tested a floating windmill off the coast of Maine a year ago have gathered enough data to build a full-size model that can be moved to take advantage of high winds. The U.S. Department of Energy is using lasers attached to buoys to measure wind speeds at differing altitudes off the coast of Virginia Beach to learn how cost-effective it would be to harness the higher winds above sea level to power wind turbines. Meanwhile, construction of the nation's first offshore wind farm may begin this year off Rhode Island.

For two years, the Obama administration dramatically raised Medicaid reimbursements for primary-care physicians in the hope that they would see more poor patients. The idea was that states would jump in to continue at least part of the payments. Few did, and the experiment ended Dec. 31, before researchers could report evidence of an impact. Now they have. Significantly more appointments for eligible patients were available during the higher-pay period than before, according to a study published online Wednesday in the New England Journal of Medicine.

WASHINGTON - The morning after listening to a president they have tired of, House Republicans heard from a man some of them hope will deliver future State of the Union speeches: Gov. Christie. The informal meet-and-greet Wednesday just steps from the Capitol gave the New Jersey governor a chance to introduce himself to lawmakers who may not have seen him up close, but who are keen to learn more about the potential presidential candidate. "He's clearly looking for the opportunity to introduce himself to more people as he makes a decision," said U.S. Rep. Frank LoBiondo (R., N.J.)

After a three-day nor'easter in September scoured away all the sand in front of his beachfront Strathmere home, Jack Monaghan beseeched the state to build a jetty - quickly - at the mouth of Corson's Inlet. New Jersey's Department of Environmental Protection urged him to be patient. The Army Corps of Engineers was about to launch four massive beach-replenishment projects along New Jersey's barrier islands, the DEP told him, and new sand would be pouring out of pipes onto Corson's Inlet by December.

ISSUE | FREE SPEECH Echoes of Penn Penn professor Anne Norton purports to protect speech but not bigotry, yet confuses both and protects neither ("Protect free speech, but don't defend bigotry," Jan. 14). Norton's model appears to be her employer, the University of Pennsylvania, which The Inquirer once branded as the nation's most politically correct university. That stemmed from a student's use of the term "water buffalo," for which Penn acted to expel him for violating its speech code.
