Barbara Butler takes home $250 a week for driving a school bus with blind children to a Catholic day school part time. Her health insurance premiums are $517 a month. She pays 76 cents, and Washington picks up the rest. The Supreme Court is expected to rule within a week on whether that subsidy, a key part of President Obama's health-care law, is legal in 34 states. If it decides not, then the West Philadelphia resident's premiums would swell to half her income. "Fortunately for me, I'm pretty healthy," Butler said.

HERSHEY, Pa. - Before lightning and heavy rain ended the contest at halftime, Imhotep Charter's D.J. Moore hauled in an 86-yard touchdown catch and Great Valley's Ryan Buchholz applied consistent pressure at defensive end. Their efforts helped Pennsylvania best Maryland, 20-3, Saturday night in the shortened Big 33 Football Classic at HersheyPark Stadium. Weather stopped the 58th annual contest prior to the start of the second half. On a flea-flicker play late in the second quarter, Moore, a 6-foot-1, 200-pound wideout bound for the University of Maryland, caught Brett Brumbaugh's heave at the 50 and easily raced to the end zone.

From the opening curtain to the final darkening of the lights, exuberant reactions - both subjectively visceral and objectively profound - rippled through the Merriam Theater at the Pennsylvania Ballet's season closer Thursday night. Choreographer William Forsythe has returned to the States after decades helming Ballet Frankfurt and then his own company in Dresden. The Philadelphia premiere of his 1991 The Second Detail is his third work from the Pennsylvania Ballet. These decades-old, neoclassical ballets will appeal to lovers of Balanchine, whom Forsythe most admired, and, to my eye, advanced the Balanchine aesthetic.

Angel Corella's first year as artistic director of Pennsylvania Ballet has been one of many changes. The entire artistic staff was replaced, new dancers and guest artists were hired, and, just Monday, Alexander Peters was promoted to principal dancer. But what hardly changed was the lineup of ballets audiences saw all season. "I was actually very pleased with the whole season," Corella said. "I know I could have changed a lot of the ballets that Roy [Kaiser, his predecessor] picked, but I thought it was actually quite interesting.

BEFORE HIS ASCENT to attorney general of Delaware and the status of a front-runner for the state's governorship in 2016, Beau Biden was the "moral compass" of his University of Pennsylvania fraternity, a frat brother said yesterday. Joseph R. "Beau" Biden III, the vice president's son and a rising political star who died Saturday from brain cancer, was beloved among his fellow members of Psi Upsilon, a fraternity that was embroiled in controversy while he was there. In interviews yesterday, his friends in the fraternity - known on campus as "Castle"- recalled a humble, compassionate man who used his sense of humor and sharp intellect to build friendships.

A Wisconsin ad said a Supreme Court hopeful had protected a priest accused of sex abuse. An Alabama mailing portrayed a high-court candidate there as a marionette with his strings pulled by President Obama, dressed like Marlon Brando in The Godfather . A Michigan TV ad asked "How could you?" because a Supreme Court candidate once aided a Guantanamo Bay detainee's defense. Could these be a preview of Pennsylvania's Supreme Court race? Each attack was funded not by a rival candidate, but by outside conservative and progressive groups that increasingly see judicial races as a fertile ideological battleground.

TWO SHERATON University City Hotel employees were federally charged yesterday in a scheme to defraud the University of Pennsylvania. The two employees - Kenneth Kapikian, 57, and Dennis Gagliardi, 60 - are alleged to have fraudulently obtained money by falsely billing the university for services the defendants never provided, spokeswoman Patty Hartman said in a statement released yesterday by the U.S. Attorney's Office. According to Penn officials, the hotel is owned by a subsidiary of the university.

A season of change at Pennsylvania Ballet will be topped off by one more: Zachary Hench and Julie Diana are leaving. The married couple, beloved principal dancers-turned-ballet masters, are moving to Juneau, Alaska, after Pennsylvania Ballet's season ends June 14 to run the state capital's only ballet school, Juneau Dance Theatre. "It will be a really incredible adventure for our family, and for Julie and I to run an organization together," said Hench. He'll be artistic director, Diana executive director.

The company that Joseph F. Coradino leads took a lot of heat over the Gallery. Critics lashed out at the Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust, which includes the Center City mall among the dozens it runs nationwide, for shutting stores and cutting merchants off from their livelihoods. Even the promise of a glittering new shopping mall in a tired section of Market Street East didn't seem to turn down the temperature. But the critics didn't understand the whole story, says Coradino, 63, chief executive of PREIT.
