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.

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.

" The lawsuit is the first to stem from the office's controversial practice of hiring an outside law firm to dig into the quality of care at nursing homes. The suit against the Golden Living chain, with 36 facilities in Pennsylvania, was developed with the help of the Cohen, Milstein, Sellers & Toll law firm in Washington.

When her medically fragile son was in kindergarten, Sabrina Jones had a rotating cast of private-duty nurses at his Philadelphia public school. "It just wasn't a good experience," said Jones - too little consistency, no real connection with her son, who has a feeding tube. But when he moved to a school that had a full-time nurse, she said, things improved dramatically. "The relationship between the nurse and my child is essential," said Jones, whose son is now a fourth grader at Lingelbach School in Germantown.

ORGANIZED LABOR is lining up behind the teachers union to oppose a plan by the School District of Philadelphia to potentially privatize health services. Philadelphia Federation of Teachers president Jerry Jordan, joined yesterday by activists and union supporters, said the district's request for a private company to provide health services is a risky bet for students and families, and could lead to eliminating experienced school nurses. Jordan was also armed with a leader from local power broker Pat Eiding, head of the Philadelphia Council AFL-CIO, expressing "grave concerns" about the district's plan.

The child recovered at CHOP and went on to have a successful heart transplant. The front page story on Christmas Day told of the greatest gift her parents would ever receive - their little girl discharged with a brand new heart. That same week, 50 school nurses were laid off. By year's end the district was operating 100 nurses short.

Last year, the Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office dropped subpoenas on dozens of nursing homes statewide, demanding facts about their staffing - an opening salvo in a probe that could force the homes to pay big fines. The office says the process will improve conditions and pay off for the state's elderly. Someone else could benefit, too - the Cohen, Milstein, Sellers & Toll law firm. The Washington firm stands to pocket up to $21 million of the first $100 million of any fines extracted by state prosecutors.

The Philadelphia School District is considering outsourcing its health services, officials said Wednesday - a move that might mean privatizing jobs held by unionized school nurses. Superintendent William R. Hite Jr. said the district, rocked by years of brutal budgets, has to find a way to expand medical services and was exploring bringing in private providers to do so. "With the significant cuts that we've made, it's impacted our ability to deliver health services to all children that need those services," Hite said.
