The robbers were young and nervous and the victims didn't believe the gun was real. A tragedy of errors that led to the November killing of popular pharmacy technician Shane Kelly was detailed Wednesday at a Philadelphia preliminary hearing that ended with Ryan McManus, 20, and pal Richard Smith, 19, held for trial on murder. "I thought it was a fake gun," Maryelise Doyne, Kelly's girlfriend of 21/2 years, said of the small handgun held by the robber identified as McManus by another witness.

After months of petitioning for staff increases at the city's health centers, members of the Northeast Citizen's Health Committee were pleased when the final paperwork for the hirings was approved by the city's Finance Department. The District 10 Health Center, 2230 Cottman Ave., will be able to increase its staff of 29. A practical nurse and a pharmacy technician have been hired, said Sue Rosenthal, chairwoman of the citizens committee, and seven other hires will be made. "That should allow District 10 to provide a greater level of services to the community," said Michael Lucas, director of Family Medical Care Services for the department.

Public health advocates were relieved in April, when Health Commissioner Maurice C. Clifford promised City Council that a proposal for private operation of city health centers would not be implemented for at least a year. But now a different problem, staff losses, is stirring up the same activists, who filled several rows of Council chambers at that April hearing to plead for retention of the current public-health system. Worried about staff attrition from early retirements at the Northeast's only center, the Northeast Citizens Health Committee will meet at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday to plan protests to the mayor and council, said Sue Rosenthal, chairwoman.

Patients of the Northeast's only city-run health center complained to Health Department officials Tuesday night about a chronic shortage of medicine at the center's pharmacy, and they made plans to take the tale to City Council. Barry Savitz, deputy health commissioner for public health centers, told the group that the city recognizes that the medicine shortage is "a crisis situation. " But he said that a new pharmacy distribution system now being developed should solve most of the problem.

His story and her story could not have been more different. Damien Walto, a former city cop, told a jury Monday that he was defending himself from the woman he's accused of beating, Diane Janssen, during a gathering of friends the evening of July 17, 2010. Walto testified that Janssen threw a can of beer at the back of his head and smacked him, then tripped on her own feet when he pushed her away to avoid a second can. "All I did was push her to get her away from me to avoid getting hit again," testified Walto, 32, who is on trial for aggravated assault and related counts.

Veda Showers, 84, often gets lost in time. But she finds herself on familiar ground when Debbie Ganci comes through the door. Both Showers and Ganci are military veterans and women of faith. Showers has congestive heart failure, diabetes, and pulmonary issues; Ganci is a pastoral counselor with Holy Redeemer Homecare and Hospice in Runnemede. They've been meeting biweekly for two years at Showers' Mullica Hill home. "Originally, Veda declined a visit. But when she heard I was military, that was my foot in the door," says Ganci, 55, a Presbyterian minister and mother of two. Ganci's specialty is helping veterans and their families cope with terminal illness - and prepare for its inevitable conclusion.

A Harrisburg pharmacist has sued the drugstore chain CVS Caremark in federal court, alleging that the company discriminated against him because he had multiple sclerosis and fired him because he raised safety concerns about CVS's plans to cut staff. In the lawsuit, filed in Harrisburg, Joseph Zorek, 61, said he had worked for the company or its predecessors from 1968 until 2012, when, he said, he was fired. Zorek's suit says CVS violated the American With Disabilities Act for several years when supervisors insisted he use a lift chair not meant for long-term sitting, so that he could see the floor in front of the pharmacy counter.

Among last year's 324 Philadelphia homicides, that of Tovoyia Owens was almost an anomaly: dead from a single punch. On Wednesday, Walter Williams - the West Philadelphia man whose punch missed its mark and instead hit the 21-year-old pregnant mother of a 3-year-old girl - was sentenced by a Philadelphia judge to two to four years in prison for involuntary manslaughter. "You set in motion a chain reaction that led to the death of this poor girl," Common Pleas Court Judge Jeffrey P. Minehart told Williams, 28. Minehart railed against the brawl Williams started on Feb. 7, 2011, outside Traffic Court at Eighth and Spring Garden Streets: "This is what happens when people can't act civilized.

SEVERAL TIMES during the Sunday morning session of Eagles rookie camp, coaches exhorted confused, hesitant players to pick up the tempo. Mental and physical fatigue were setting in, as rookies grappled with their second day in a new offense or defense. When the practice was over and players fled the sunny practice fields for the air-conditioned shade of the locker room, defensive coordinator Juan Castillo gathered three linebackers, including second-round draft pick Mychal Kendricks.
