To all those people out there who read their horoscopes religiously every day, scrutinizing every aspect of their lives under the microscope of those five or six lines of type, astrologer Sally Brompton has this word of advice. Darlings . . . you really must get over it. "You can take quite a lot of it seriously, actually, but you can't go mad with it or you would never get out of bed in the morning," said the London- born astrologer with a laugh. "It's not really intended to be a predictive thing, it is really a framework for the future, like a weather map. It provides a series of potentials, it is up to you to make the most of the situation as it exists.

Eight months ago, I retired from a 37-year newspaper career. Since then, I've watched silently at what has transpired in my old business, and my amazement has turned to horror. On a dreary morning in January, I got together with three industry colleagues who are continuing the fight for their publications. Their passion and enthusiasm contrasted with the cold, damp weather, as well as with the bleak forecasts for newspapers. Their voices have not been heard much, but they should be. If nobody reads newspapers anymore, I wonder, why did the governor of Illinois try to silence the Chicago Tribune's editorial writers?

THE Daily News and the Inquirer are the print town criers of the past, present and the future. We the people must step up and continue to give these two informative and thought-inspiring newspapers our support. We must purchase them, and place our ads in them - and continue to place our input in them by answering various editorials with our letters. The newspaper gives us all a chance to read and think. Their words can bring us to every part of the world, they give insight to those who seek public office, and the reader gains the knowledge.

DISCUSSIONS about the grim future of newspapers can sound self-serving when journalists do the talking. But I don't make my living from newspapers - I want them to survive because I'm a reader not a writer. The first problem: Content is old before the ink is dry. Radio, TV and especially the Internet have accelerated that aging process and expose newspapers - both the product and the institution - to competition from more nimble content providers. Second problem: The Internet has also increased the competition among newspapers themselves.

It's a marvelous night for a womb dance . . . Two British tabs have published evidence that they say proves that singer Van Morrison fathered a child out of wedlock with one of his U.S. tour promoters. Morrison flatly denied a relationship with the Texas mother, GiGi Lee , when his own website (which his people claim had been hacked into) published an announcement on Dec. 29, 2009, of the birth of "little Van. " Big Van, 65, instructed his Irish publicist to say that he didn't even know the purported mother, identified incorrectly as "his wife GiGi.

I teach at a high school where the kids are bright, well-informed and politically astute. Most of them, however, think that a newspaper is something you use to clean up after a dog or put beneath an opened can of paint. They get most of their news from the Internet or from cable shows like Jon Stewart's The Daily Show, two forums that hardly existed 10 years ago. This is not altogether a bad thing. For example, this fall I will write college recommendations for about 10 seniors.

THE "PUBLIC trust" aspect of newspapers is a bloated, facile and ultimately incoherent basis for running a newspaper. And the new ownership of the Daily News and Inky give us a chance to abandon the idea. In February, I offered some advice to imaginary investors in our papers. The gist: Let the papers compete with each other, prioritize the day's events for readers and dominate the local market. We now have new owners - and they turn out to be people who make that advice sounder than ever.

I love dictionaries. Looking up one word leads the eye to the words before and following, the next, and the next, and before you know it, you have read the meanings of intent. Reading the newspaper has the same effect. Each page offers myriad articles to read and I find myself reading about topics in which I thought I had no interest, from a Mickey Mouse collector to what the Eagles might offer Michael Vick. Would my eye be so captured on a website? Would I continue to expand my understanding of the world if I read only the articles I choose on my iPad?

High school newspapers should be to journalism what Little League is to pro ball - a place and time when young people can feel the purity of expression and the responsibility of teamwork before adult rules and standards take over. But not if adults insist on umpiring from the grandstand. Little Leaguers may dream of one day swinging a bat in the big leagues, but most of them never will. And while every kid working on a high school newspaper harbors a Woodward-and-Bernstein aspiration or two, most of them won't go pro, either.

MIKE EROH wasn't about to let being laid up at home stop him from doing his job. Mike was the senior home-delivery manager for the Daily News and Inquirer in South Jersey and he had a phone. While recovering from hernia surgery, Mike would get on that phone and call the warehouse in Turnersville, N.J., every day to find out what was going on, what the problems were and how to fix them. Unfortunately, Mike never made it back to work. He died Thursday of a massive heart attack.

Since Newsies , the Walt-Disney-movie-turned-musical based on New York's Newsboy Strike of 1899 closes on Sunday, I will immediately say that if you like uplifting David-and-Goliath stories set to rousing music and filled with aggressive, gymnastics-propelled choreography, get tickets. Since Philadelphia also launches the 2014-15 national tour, I will offer my criticisms of a show that I enjoyed thoroughly, for as long as I could stand it. Alan Menken's music and Jack Feldman's lyrics strike a single note all night: yearning.

SUSPENDED Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice Seamus McCaffery and his wife yesterday withdrew a defamation lawsuit against the Inquirer and Daily News . McCaffery and Lise Rapaport filed their suit in March over a series of Inquirer articles claiming that Rapaport had received substantial referral fees from law firms while working as her husband's aide. Amy Ginensky, a senior partner at Pepper Hamilton who represents the newspapers' owner, Interstate General Media, said the couple withdrew the suit after editors agreed to publish a letter from the U.S. Attorney's Office about its investigation into the incident.

In an e-mail to the Pennsylvania School Press Association that was obtained by The Inquirer, adviser Tara Huber said that she was suspended without pay for "willful neglect of duties and insubordination," and that the...

A judge on Friday tossed out a libel suit filed by Carl R. Greene, former head of the Philadelphia Housing Authority, against The Inquirer and the Philadelphia Daily News. In 2010, Greene was fired from his job as executive director after the authority's board of commissioners discovered that he had secretly settled multiple sexual harassment complaints against him. A year later, Greene filed suit in Common Pleas Court against Philadelphia Media Network Inc., then the owner of the newspapers and their website.

JUST 10 DAYS after a plane crash took his father's life, Drew Katz confirmed last night that he's selling his stake in the Daily News, the Inquirer and Philly.com to philanthropist H.F. "Gerry" Lenfest, making Lenfest the company's sole owner. "Because of the turmoil of the last 10 days, I have made a decision that it would be in the best interests of The Inquirer, Daily News and Philly.com for me to sell my interest in the company," the 42-year-old son of Lewis Katz said in an email to local journalists.

H.F. "Gerry" Lenfest, co-owner and interim publisher, announced Tierney's return in an email to staffers, saying that Tierney will work directly with him in an effort to woo advertisers.

WHEN INTERSTATE General Media goes up for auction Tuesday, one group won't be allowed to sit in on the proceedings: the media. So says Delaware Chancery Court Judge Donald F. Parsons Jr., who sided yesterday with the wishes of Lewis Katz and H.F. "Gerry" Lenfest, one-half of the warring owners of IGM, the parent company of the Daily News , the Inquirer and Philly.com. Katz and Lenfest wanted the auction - which will be held at the Cira Centre law office of Dechert LLP - to unfold behind closed doors.
