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.

Allow me a slight detour before we get back to business. Some of you may have noticed I've been missing from Philly.com and the pages of the Daily News for two months. Sorry to disappoint all the trolls who keep asking, but, no, I wasn't fired. I was in a nasty bicycle accident July 16 that sidelined me for most of the summer. I'd share the details, but I don't remember them. One minute I was on my bike on a paved trail in bucolic Lancaster, looking forward to a beer at lunch and preparing for the week ahead.

HARRISBURG - A Pennsylvania court has sided with animal-rights activists and struck down state regulations that permitted nursing dogs to be kept in cages with wire floors and limited their access to exercise. Commonwealth Court said Friday that the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture regulations conflicted with state dog law. The law prohibits the use of metal strand flooring for dogs in commercial breeding kennels, and requires unfettered access to an exercise area. The state regulations allowed the nursing mothers to be kept in cages with 50 percent wire flooring and only required breeders to provide them with daily access to exercise.

ISSUE | HEALTH CARE NPs are not doctors While nurse-practitioners have their place on a physician-led medical team, they should never be used in place of a licensed doctor ("Give nurse-practitioners full practice authority," Tuesday). The difference in the education of a licensed doctor of medicine or doctor of osteopathic medicine compared to that of a nurse-practitioner is like night and day. Medical students spend many more hours of classroom, clinical, and research time to learn to effectively analyze symptoms and diagnose and treat illnesses.

ISSUE | HEALTH CARE Give nurse-practitioners full practice authority Nurse-practitioners are registered nurses with advanced graduate education and the skills to diagnose and treat common, chronic, and acute conditions ("Expanding the role of nurse- practitioners," Aug. 28). NPs have been diagnosing and prescribing medications in Pennsylvania for years, but now they may not assess and treat patients or prescribe medication without a formal collaborative physician agreement. Full-practice authority means that an experienced NP could practice without a collaborative agreement.

Earlier this summer, the Pennsylvania Senate passed a bill that would allow nurse practitioners to practice to the full extent of their license, removing a requirement that they have "collaborative agreements" with physicians - a form of oversight. Supporters say that the measure, which next goes to the House, would improve access to cost-effective care by allowing nurse-practitioners independently to take on more tasks, including prescription-writing. Opponents maintain that physicians, who undergo more training, should keep providing supervision.

By Barbara Patterson The country is on the brink of a crisis that has the potential to affect the care of patients - in the hospital, at the doctor's office, in schools - just about anywhere there should be a nurse. The need for nurses has created record enrollments in nursing schools nationwide, which has contributed to an increased need for academic nurse faculty. Unfortunately, a national shortage of doctorally prepared faculty threatens society's access to a workforce of competent nurses delivering patient care.

A South Jersey nurse has been accused of repeatedly stabbing a 10-year-old autistic boy with a hypodermic needle as punishment while he was in inpatient psychiatric care, prosecutors said, calling her actions "barbaric.

The Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office is criminally investigating the case in the meantime.
