J.R. Phillips hopped a flight in San Francisco Thursday night that landed at Atlanta's Hartsfield International Airport at 9:30 yesterday morning. Some 10 hours later, he was in the starting lineup for the Phillies facing Braves ace Greg Maddux. "Anxious?" Phillips asked. "Yeah, I was. Give me a chance to play and I'll be there. " Not surprisingly, Phillips, acquired from the Giants Thursday for a player to be named later or cash, couldn't wait to get to his new team.

While Julianne Phillips is quoted extensively on her split with Bruce Springsteen in the Aug. 22 issue of US magazine, her spokeswoman said the model was upset over the magazine's report. Molly Madden conceded that US interviewed Phillips in February and made a follow-up phone call, but said that seeing the story on the cover was "devastating" to Phillips. In the article, Phillips doesn't sound as though she's pining away; neither does she address the subject of the Boss' reputed new love interest, Patti Scialfa.

J.R. Phillips had a ready answer when he was asked about the pressure of replacing Will Clark in San Francisco. "From the beginning," Phillips said, "I told people, 'I'm not Will Clark, I'm J.R. Phillips.' If they wanted Will Clark, they should have kept him. I'm not going to be Matt Williams or Barry Bonds or Lenny Dykstra. Everybody's different. " Phillips, 26, joined the Phillies yesterday in Atlanta. A day after being acquired from the San Francisco Giants, Phillips made his first start for the Phillies.

When Tony Phillips became a free agent last winter, he assumed his phone would be ringing off the hook. Several teams had dire need of a solid leadoff hitter, and Phillips was coming off a career-best season with the California Angels. But instead of causing a feeding frenzy, few teams showed interest in the 36-year-old outfielder. The best offer he received sliced his annual salary by some $2.5 million. Phillips eventually, grudgingly, accepted a two-year, $3.6-million deal from the Chicago White Sox. Then yesterday, after having a change of heart in his first week of training camp, Phillips abruptly retired from the game for personal reasons.

There is more to basketball than snatching quarters from the tops of backboards. For every Michael Jordan who hang-glides on the cover of Sports Illustrated, there are hundreds more great leapers who have to settle for hanging in playgrounds because they never learned how to play. Meet John Bartram's Chris Phillips, a 6-2, 210-pound senior small forward who last year scored 1,350 on the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test. Yesterday, Phillips, who can perform all varieties, unfurled nary a dunk as the visiting Braves (12-3 overall, 8-0 in the Public League Northern Division)

The revolving door the Phillies have been using at first base spun again. And this time, J.R. Phillips stepped out. It was announced before last night's game against the Marlins at Joe Robbie Stadium that the Phillies had acquired Phillips, a 26-year-old lefthanded hitter, for a player to be named later or cash considerations. He's expected to join the team in time for tonight's game against the Braves in Atlanta and will become the sixth different first baseman the Phils have used this year, joining Gregg Jefferies, Gene Schall, Kevin Jordan, Benito Santiago and Jon Zuber.

Three weeks ago, a betting person could have gotten impressive odds against the chance that J.R. Phillips would be back with the Phillies for last night's game against the Cardinals. Then again, nobody expected Steve Jones to win the U.S. Open. Even by those standards, Phillips has had a strange odyssey. Acquired from the Giants May 2 for his defensive prowess at first base and his power potential, he was designated for assignment on May 28 after hitting .103 and striking out 15 times in 29 at-bats.

When Democrat Walter M. Phillips takes his campaign for district attorney into a room filled with police officers tonight, he knows the critical issue may not be his views on drug crime, police manpower or ineffective judges. It may be his stand on hamburgers. What's the beef? Phillips is expected to promise the officers that, if elected, he will not prosecute them for accepting free hamburgers from city restaurants. In fact, Phillips already made that pledge in a letter published in a recent police union newsletter: "I will not, under any circumstances, prosecute a police officer for accepting free hamburgers, free coffee, or other similar gratuities.

On the night of May 3, after a red-eye flight from San Francisco to Atlanta, J.R. Phillips talked about how happy he was to have been traded to the Phillies. That emotion lasted less than a month. Before last night's game against the Dodgers, Phillips was called into manager Jim Fregosi's Veterans Stadium office and informed that he had been designated for assignment to make room on the roster for outfielder Ricky Otero, who was called up from Triple A Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre.

The injury-ravaged Phillies hope to use the next three months as a testing ground for their future. Which is why you may soon see an infield that includes its best prospect, Scott Rolen, at third base. And why you can expect to see a lot of work from rightfielder J.R. Phillips. Phillips, after being banished to the minors earlier this month, has returned to the Phils and has shown some positive signs. Last night, he slammed two homers and a double as the Phillies ended a five-game losing streak by defeating the Montreal Expos, 7-3, before 21,703 fans at Veterans Stadium.

Quadir Phillips hadn't even touched the ball on offense or made many plays on defense. But in the third quarter of Thursday's demolition of Strawberry Mansion, the 5-foot-5, 120-pounder from Fels made the play of the game, hit of the game and most unselfish play of the game - all at the same time. The final score was 34-12 at Northeast High, and the game was already in hand by the time Phillips left his mark. But that didn't matter much to coach Bill Harrigan. "Quadir, that was my play of the game right there!"

The consensus on the Temple football team is that the 1-1 Owls aren't anywhere near where they need to be if they hope to approach the success they had last season. One person in particular who believes he needs to step up is quarterback Phillip Walker. The 5-foot-11, 205-pound senior has even more responsibility than a year ago, when strong senior leadership and production from the upperclassmen resulted in a 10-4 finish. This year's team is still feeling its way, looking for leaders and big-play performers to emerge.

Matt Nathanson can't seem to sit still. Last summer, the singer/songwriter toured with Train and the Fray. After his latest album, Show Me Your Fangs , launched in October, he headed out for an acoustic set.

Terron L. Phillips had just bought a pack of cigarettes from an East Camden gas station late last Wednesday and was walking home when a red SUV approached him. Four males, ages 16 to 19, were inside, authorities said. The youngest held a sawed-off shotgun. He stepped out of the car with Raquan Handon, 18, and tried to rob Phillips, investigators said. Phillips, 19, told them he had nothing. Handon searched his pockets, found only the cigarettes, and walked back to the SUV holding them, authorities said.

By the time paramedics found the 4-year-old girl shot dead in a back bedroom of his family's East Kensington house, Maurice "Stephon" Phillips was long gone. Those who remained in the house where Phillips lived with his girlfriend and six children told police the girl's 5-year-old brother had been playing with a gun that accidentally went off, firing a single shot into the girl's face. But the boy wasn't in the house, and neither was Phillips, whose Facebook cover photo features a semiautomatic pistol with a box of hollow-point bullets.

A 4-year-old girl - whose mother rarely let her or her siblings play outside their Kensington home because of chronic violence in the area - was shot dead inside her home Saturday afternoon by her 5-year-old brother, police said.

She was pronounced dead at the scene by medics at 2:30. Police said a semiautomatic pistol was recovered.

During a moment of silence late Wednesday afternoon on the University of Pennsylvania campus green, some of the dozens gathered there held posters that read, "You Are Not Alone," and, "This Is a Safe Space. " The campus church bell tolled six times. Then the next speaker came to the lectern to read more letters from anonymous students who had written their stories of depression and anxiety. The event was organized by friends of Penn junior Ao "Olivia" Kong, a finance major, who was hit by a Market-Frankford Line train at the nearby 40th Street station during Monday's morning rush.

Maybe it was when the pirates stood behind Capt. Richard Phillips and all he could hear was the click, click, click of a gun not discharging. Or maybe when there was a bang, and he felt blood coming down his face. Somehow, Phillips, held hostage on a lifeboat with four Somali pirates who had previously boarded his 17,000-ton Merchant Marine vessel off the coast of Africa, found the strength and faith to remain calm. "The way I solved that was one of the most crucial parts of being a leader, and that's staying calm," Phillips told a group of more than 400 human-resource professionals at a daylong symposium Wednesday organized by the Philadelphia Society for Human Resource Management.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Wade Phillips called defensive plays for Buddy Ryan during his three years with the Eagles, but Ryan would still interject, especially when the opposing offense picked up a first down. "If they made a first down, [Ryan] said, 'Blitz!' " Phillips recalled on Wednesday from the Super Bowl. "He said, 'Blitz 'em!' OK, Coach. Any time they made a first down he was going to blitz them. " Phillips chuckled at the thought. But the 68-year-old Broncos coordinator, who has achieved a similar amount of acclaim as a defensive whiz, said the former Eagles coach had a great impact on his career.

From the time she was 5 or 6, Susan knew she wanted to be a lawyer. She was equally certain she wanted to be a mother. But in the darkest and most turbulent times of her life, she didn't think either of those dreams was possible. By the time she was in college, Susan had twice attempted suicide; in law school, she developed severe anxiety and later was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. She grew paranoid; she yanked out her fingernails and toenails. Finally, in desperation, she checked herself in to a psychiatric ward.
