Doing the honors yesterday is Common Pleas Judge Judy Kathryn Lewis.

Like a rock star in the West, Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev was surrounded by throngs of curious, cheering East Germans when he took an unannounced tour of East Berlin yesterday. "It's Gorby, it's Gorby, it's Gorby," squealed a woman, jumping up and down in excitement when she glimpsed the Soviet leader and his wife, Raisa, walking in the bright sunshine. Gorbachev visited the Berlin Wall and a newly rebuilt concert theater before seeing a new monument to philosophers Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, the founders of Communist ideology.

Marlon Byrd made quite a first impression. Byrd, acquired from the Phillies on Saturday, went 3-for-4 and drove in three runs in his Nationals debut, lifting host Washington past the Milwaukee Brewers, 5-2, last night for its third straight victory. Washington acquired Byrd from the Phillies for Endy Chavez. Once a top prospect, Byrd finished fourth in the 2003 NL Rookie of the Year voting after hitting .303 with seven homers, 28 doubles and 45 RBI in 135 games. He began last season as the team's leadoff hitter, but was shipped to the minors in June and wound up batting .228 in 106 games with the Phillies.

After Pennsylvania Auditor General Barbara Hafer appointed International Longshoremen's Association official James Paylor to the Delaware River Port Authority, the big question was how long it would take before the ILA leader engaged in a conflict of interest. Not a man to leave people in suspense, he reportedly did it at his first board meeting, held late last month. According to two members present at the closed meeting, Mr. Paylor got his chance when the DRPA's proposed freight transfer facility came up. He immediately urged that a stevedoring company the ILA is negotiating with should handle the work at the new facility, called an intermodal yard.

There were more than a few inauspicious moments in the designated year-of- the-woman Oscars. The opening tribute to Hollywood's women began, after all, with a chorus of "Some Day My Prince Will Come. " Billy Crystal then remarked on a dismal lack of decent women's roles, adding his equally dismal assessment. "Some of the most-talked-about women's parts are Sharon Stone's in Basic Instinct. " The Academy itself gave the award for Best Actress to Emma Thompson for her portrait of a strong woman of her time.

If the Flyers are going to challenge for the Stanley Cup, their goaltending has to be every-night consistent. And for them, that consistency starts with having the same guy in net game in and game out. There will be no rotating of goalies, which proved disastrous in last year's playoffs. "We don't want to alternate," coach Roger Neilson said. "I hope one plays so well that it becomes obvious" who's No. 1. Right now, given Ron Hextall's inflamed left hip, which has caused him to miss the last three games, and Sean Burke's strong play, there seems to be little doubt that Burke has the edge.

CAMERON STERLING stood next to his mother in Baton Rouge, La., as she spoke of how police had killed his father. The new man of the house, 15 years old, tried to stand strong, but he did what any child would do. He wept. He buried his face in his shirt, and then in someone's chest, and he sobbed: "I want my Daddy. " I had returned from vacation ready to write a column about 16-year-old Asir Brown, gunned down in a drive-by shooting in Grays Ferry on July Fourth weekend. But then I turned to one of the televisions in the newsroom and watched the emotional news conference outside Baton Rouge city hall, and there he was: A young man broken in ways that he's only just beginning to realize.

The pols were gathered, the TV cameras were turning and everybody was harrumphing about the Navy Yard. The illusion of unity came apart some when one of the pols was accused by a couple of others of using the occasion for political advantage. This is the equivalent of the staff of Miss Lily's Pleasure Palace arguing over their relative chastity. That's about all that's funny about the inevitable closedown of the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard. Some 11,000 jobs at the huge facility in South Philadelphia would simply disappear, just as more than 30,000 similar jobs have in the past 40-odd years.

Through 11 games, the Ottawa Senators appeared as if they might avoid last place for the first time. Then the old Senators returned, and it cost Rick Bowness his job. Bowness, the only coach Ottawa has had in its four years, was fired yesterday with the team in an eight-game losing streak. The Senators started the year 6-5-0 before going into a tailspin. After being routed, 6-0, in Buffalo on Sunday night, Ottawa is 6-13-0 this season and has a career record of 39-178-18. "We felt we needed a new head coach not burdened by those formative years," general manager Randy Sexton said.

Question: What do people really want to hear when they ask when my husband and I are going to have children? When I say we don't plan to, the next question is, why not? Do I tell them it was a tough decision to make and one I find myself struggling with but know to be the right one? That we can barely keep ourselves afloat financially, or that we both have trouble keeping cool under pressure and that would be a rough situation for a kid? Or a bunch of other reasons even harder to hear than those?

Q: I was all excited about getting snowed in with the new man I've been seeing. When he got here, we opened some wine, turned on a movie and sat on the couch. And that's it. There was no kissing. No snuggling. Just a good-night kiss when he went to sleep! He stayed over the next day and the same thing happened. I'm confused and let down. How does a grown man stay over at a woman's place and not try to have sex with her? This situation is making me doubt myself. I don't know if I should ever see him again.

SO HOW MANY quarterbacks ever had a better start to their careers than Villanova's Zach Bednarczyk? The redshirt freshman had to come in cold Saturday after four-year starter John Robertson, the 2014 Walter Payton Award winner, injured his knee late in the fourth quarter with the Wildcats trailing visiting Delaware by seven. And all Bednarczyk did was throw a 6-yard touchdown pass on his second play, on a fourth-and-4 (they missed the conversion kick). When the Wildcats got the ball back, he led them on a 71-yard, six-play, game-winning drive.

JASON PETERS showed up for Eagles training camp with a new body and a renewed determination to prove that, at 33, he still is one of the two or three best left tackles in football. The seven-time Pro Bowler weighs 320 pounds, which is the lightest he's been since making the switch from tight end to offensive tackle in his second NFL season. That's about 25 pounds below what he played at last season. "Three forty-five is what I've always played at," Peters said. "Since my first year starting at offensive line.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Freddy Galvis has the unenviable task of replacing Phillies' all-time hits leader Jimmy Rollins as the team's everyday shortstop. The slick-fielding 25-year-old said Sunday he doesn't feel extra pressure because of the act he's following. "Jimmy was Jimmy. Jimmy was the man here in Philadelphia," Galvis said. "But you have to come here and play baseball. That's it. I have to do my game. I don't have to do Jimmy's game. I have to do Freddy Galvis' game and play ball.

Q: I can have an orgasm several times in a day and still want more. When I get like this, it's like I'm on fire and nothing can calm me down. Whenever I meet a new man, I tell him up front how I get sometimes. At first, they're excited, but after a few weeks, they don't answer my texts. This makes me insane. All I want is for a man to keep up with me sexually, but that's really hard to find. I don't know what to do.   Mia: Maybe you're tuned up so high, your lovers feel they can't satisfy you, and that's why they go ghost on you. Before you get back out on the dating prowl, you should get yourself checked out by a doctor.

THIS YEAR'S BET Awards were the first time the general public could purchase tickets for the event, so Clementon, N.J.'s Lawrence Johnson decided to attend. Where's the news here? Johnson happens to look uncannily like Snoop Lion (formerly Snoop Dogg ) and proceeded to fool a couple of celebs into believing he was the "Gin and Juice" rapper. The owner of Bermuda Pools and Spas has been impersonating Snoop for about three years, and even performs as a look-alike. His policy is to neither confirm nor deny that he's actually Snoop ("nine times out of 10, people want a picture either way," Johnson said)

The Inquirer is presenting a daily profile of participants in Sunday's Broad Street Run. Plenty of men want to lose weight. Some even succeed. But not many have the guts to document their progress and let the whole world see. Meet Andy Aubin, 36, of Hatboro. In November 2011, Andy had become a father. He weighed 328 pounds and was tired of making excuses. So he started running - and blogging about it as a way to hold himself accountable ( http://bigandysrunning.wordpress.com )
