In a decision that proved trying even for the judge who made it, Joseph Weber, a Temple University graduate and former Germantown Academy swim coach, was sentenced Friday to serve three years and nine months to 7 1/2 years in prison for having a sexual affair with a 14-year-old girl. Decrying the excessive adulation of athletes and coaches and saying that Weber was "woefully deficient" in maturity, Montgomery County Court Judge Samuel W. Salus 2d ordered the 28-year-old Philadelphia man to undergo psychiatric care while incarcerated.

The nurse beat her 68-year-old patient to death for refusing to take his medication last year, and was prepared to take her medicine from the judge. "It was my duty to preserve life, not to end it," sighed a tearful Kathy Johnson, 45, to Common Pleas Judge Juanita Kidd Stout at her sentencing hearing. "I was his nurse. I had no right to take that man's life," Johnson added. "I still do not know how such a thing could have happened, and how I could have done it. " After defense lawyer Joel S. Moldovsky urged Stout to "look into the heart of the case, and the heart of the defendant, and see this was not a crime that was intended, and a crime that was sincerely regretted," Stout imposed a four-to-10-year prison term for third-degree murder.

Homicide detectives are seeking a 16-year-old in connection with last week's slaying of a Philadelphia Geriatric Center nurse. An arrest warrant was issued Friday for Yusef "Ali" Whitehead, of the 5000 block of North Seventh Street in Olney - the same neighborhood as the victim. Whitehead is being sought in the killing of Calma M. Calida, 49, a registered nurse, whose nude body was found in the Tacony Creek Park in the early-morning hours on Thursday. Investigators said at the time that Calida apparently had been intercepted by an assailant during her drive the night before from her Lower Olney home to the Philadelphia Geriatric Center, where her shift was to begin at 11 p.m. Two young men walking a macadam pathway spotted the body lying on its side on rocks in shallow water on the west bank of the creek a short distance from Bingham Street.

Regarding Bruno Richard Hauptmann and the Lindbergh baby, though I was a teenager at the time, I can recall the case as well as if it had happened yesterday. My father was a lawyer, and I can recall his comments on the stories as they appeared in the newspapers. The jury was taken out of the courtroom each day through a mob of angry citizens all clamoring for conviction as the jurors were conducted to their hotel rooms for the night. That must have at least influenced them a little.

An audit released Tuesday by Auditor General Eugene DePasquale found deficiencies in the way the Pennsylvania Department of Health enforced the state's minimum standard of 2.7 hours per day of direct nursing care. The audit covered the period from Jan. 1, 2014, through Oct. 31, 2015. Only last July did the health department start accepting anonymous complaints about nursing homes. That was a second area of concern in the audit, because it likely compromised the department's ability to receive and investigate complaints, the audit said.

Cadbury Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, in Cherry Hill, part of a nonprofit founded by Quakers in 1978, is under agreement of sale to a for-profit company. If the sale is completed, Cadbury will join an exodus that has seen the percentage of the Philadelphia region's nursing homes owned by for-profits surge to 63 percent this year, from 49 percent in 2010, an Inquirer analysis of federal data found. Nonprofits sell facilities for many reasons: They need the money, change their mission, or succumb to financial pressures on the industry largely caused by heavy reliance on the federal government's low-paying Medicaid program.

Amir Showell, 15, wants to be a dermatologist when he grows up. "I'm interested in whiteheads, blackheads," said Showell, whose teenage complexion, by the way, is clear of all of the above. Too bad U.S. Health and Human Services official J. Nadine Gracia wasn't at Philadelphia's Roxborough High School last week to meet Showell, who, as a freshman, personifies the aims of a $6.4 million federal project spearheaded by her office. "I like medicine, but deep-down surgery, I can't stand that," Showell said.

About 20 doctors and nurses from across the city gathered at a South Philadelphia health clinic Monday to declare that their patients' health would improve dramatically if sugary soda were taxed. Like a (somewhat unpolished) magician conjuring sugar hidden in a giant cup, city Health Commissioner Thomas Farley reached down and pulled . . . and pulled . . . and pulled until he had revealed 58 linked packets of sugar representing 800 calories - more than a third of the total daily calories that most people should be consuming each day, he said.
