A state audit of Camden's government last year found that it wasn't an "appropriate use" of a police detective's time to be with the city's mayor almost every minute he is on official business. Arnold W. Webster disagreed with that recommendation and kept his police escort. Camden's new mayor, Milton Milan, is continuing that longtime practice. He says it will make him a better mayor. "Without a police escort, it's real difficult for me to move about," said Milan, who has been escorted by Detective Pierre Robinson since May 14, the day after he defeated Webster in the city's election.

The Camden Catholic High basketball team was accompanied by a police escort for the last few miles of its trip to Camden High yesterday. Situated around the gym and its perimeter were 16 uniformed officers, four times the number that usually staff a game at Camden. Before the game, the players and coaches were not introduced. During the game, the numbers, rather than the names, of scorers were announced over the loudspeaker. Boyd Sands, the executive director of the NJSIAA, was there, as were Roy Dawson, the superintendent of the Camden school system, and several members of the Olympic Conference executive committee.

As many as 10,000 motorcyclists are expected to take part tomorrow in a 60-mile trip from Philadelphia to Atlantic City in a roaring, traffic-stopping show of support for the families of slain police officers. Clubs including the Wild Pigs, Buffalo Soldiers and Women on Wheels have signed up to take their Honda Gold Wings and Harley-Davidson Softails on the fund-raising ride over the Walt Whitman Bridge, onto Route 42 and down the Atlantic City Expressway.

A TERMINALLY ill Delaware County boy will receive a hero's welcome when he returns home from his Make-A-Wish vacation today to a massive police escort that will take him from Philadelphia International Airport to his front door in Springfield. Brayden Chandler, 3, was diagnosed with a kidney tumor in January 2013, and this month, doctors told his parents they could do no more for the boy. Instead of treatment, they told the Chandlers to enjoy their last bit of time with their son. The Chandler family traveled to Walt Disney World on a Make-A-Wish Foundation trip - but the surprises won't end when they get home today.

We LOVE the Sixers The Sixers have really been an inspiration. We are thankful for the energy and excitement the team has put forth. The city loves you, Sixers. Christine Charleston, Philadelphia Advice for SEPTA SEPTA should consider trackless trolleys to help reduce the rising cost of diesel fuel. Electric buses are quiet and don't pollute. It would save SEPTA so much that the savings would go toward other improvements. Broad Street and Roosevelt Boulevard would be great for these types of buses.

BROOKFIELD, Wis. - A man police suspected of killing three and wounding four by opening fire at a tranquil day spa was found dead Sunday afternoon following a six-hour manhunt that locked down a shopping center, country club and hospital in suburban Milwaukee. Authorities said they believed the shooting was related to a domestic dispute. The man they identified as the suspect, Radcliffe Franklin Haughton, 45, of Brown Deer, had a restraining order against him. Brookfield Police Chief Dan Tushaus said Haughton died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound and was found in the spa. Authorities initially believed Haughton had fled and spent much of Sunday looking for him. The shooting happened about 11 a.m. at the Azana Day Spa, a two-story, 9,000-square-foot building across from a major shopping mall in Brookfield, a middle-to-upper class community west of Milwaukee.
