DON'T LOOK NOW, but the lazy days of summer are tick-tocking away. Before we all know it September will be here. But don't call Hollywood lazy. The celebs are closing deals, getting married and buying houses. Some, unfortunately, have gotten tased. Read all about it in Celebrityville. Yesterday Weather guy John Bolaris has burn marks on his chest and it ain't because of the sun. Instead, he alleges a Hamptons cabdriver used a stun gun on him during a dispute, Philly.com reported.

Mike Topel, a former editor at The Inquirer who most recently developed digital news channels for a national newspaper chain, has been named interim executive editor of Philly.com, Interstate General Media owner H.F. "Gerry" Lenfest said Thursday. Topel's appointment is part of the management transition at the parent company of The Inquirer, the Philadelphia Daily News, and Philly.com. Lenfest, a philanthropist and former cable-television magnate, consolidated ownership of the media company Wednesday by buying out Drew Katz, son of Lenfest's former partner in the venture, the late Lewis Katz.

JUST 10 DAYS after a plane crash took his father's life, Drew Katz confirmed last night that he's selling his stake in the Daily News, the Inquirer and Philly.com to philanthropist H.F. "Gerry" Lenfest, making Lenfest the company's sole owner. "Because of the turmoil of the last 10 days, I have made a decision that it would be in the best interests of The Inquirer, Daily News and Philly.com for me to sell my interest in the company," the 42-year-old son of Lewis Katz said in an email to local journalists.

IT HAPPENED. It actually happened. Philly stopped shrugging long enough to call BS on cops getting a pass from the feds for allegedly preying on some of the city's most vulnerable. And that outrage led the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office to review the cases of two women who said they were groped by one of the cops. No word if they'll revisit the 22 Philly bodega owners who said they were robbed and roughed up. "It makes sense for us to do this now given the criticism we've received for something we never looked at before," First Assistant District Attorney Ed McCann said.

Donations will be taken in the lobby of the media group's headquarters at 801 Market St., from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. today through Friday, Oct. 25. Interstate General Media LLC, the publisher, is partnering with Global Citizen, which spearheads the annual Greater Philadelphia Martin Luther King Day of Service, to conduct the drive. The collection campaign for supplies was initiated in response to the current funding crisis and need for basic resources in Philadelphia's public schools, the company said.

MY OFFICE is situated in the heart of South Philly, between three funeral homes. Just this morning, I saw a coffin being placed into a hearse with black-clad mourners waiting in patient silence on the sidewalk. That is respect. But there are moments when we lose sight of our better angels and treat certain deaths as fodder for the gossip rags and cable trash bins of Nancy Grace and company. That happened this week when, to my dismay, the big news after Memorial Day was that Chuck Peruto's "girlfriend" had died.

  Show us your face. That's my solution to the online issue of incivility to which Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie recently fell victim at Philly.com. Vitriolic postings about his recent marriage illustrate the need for media-sponsored websites to implement the same rules that apply to a speaker sounding off in the town's square: Say what you want, but the public gets to see who you are. John Featherman, a Philly.com columnist, reported that as soon as word of Lurie's nuptials to a woman of Vietnamese heritage was published, a blogosphere barrage began.
