Kyshiona Gray, 8, was crossing Lindbergh Boulevard at 57th Street in Southwest Philadelphia yesterday afternoon when an aunt on the other side of the street called her name, a relative said. Kyshiona, who was going home from a trip to the store with a 16-year-old friend, stopped, turned around, and tried to cross back. At that moment, however, two cars were drag racing on Lindbergh, heading north at a high rate of speed on the rain-slickened street, witnesses said. One of them, a late-model, four-door Pontiac Bonneville, struck the little girl.

In Northampton, Lower Bucks County, there are five roads with nearly the same name: East Holland, Lower Holland, Middle Holland, Upper Holland and Holland. Sometimes, they intersect. Or worse, dead end. Dorie Martucci knows back roads. But the Hollands get her every time. "It's maddening," she says. "Usually, I'm a pretty mellow driver. " Like many suburbanites, Martucci lives in a world that revolves around start-stop trips - 5-, 10-, 15-minute jaunts. "Errand" is her middle name.

I encountered the redesigned Pontiac Bonneville for the first time last summer, when it was introduced to the national motor press high in the Montana Rockies. Our second meeting was last week, this time at sea level. What a difference 8,000 feet makes. A car's engine loses 3 percent of its power with each 1,000-foot increase in altitude. Since we were driving those pre-production models in the Rockies at altitudes of 7,500 to 9,000 feet, we were losing about 25 percent of the ponies in the Bonneville's corral.

Theodus Richardson was 75, but by all accounts still fit and thriving. That's why it came as no surprise yesterday to those who knew him that the retired construction worker would try to stop someone from stealing his 1983 blue-on-blue Pontiac Bonneville station wagon - even going so far as clinging to the door as a thief sped off in it. Richardson, of North Philadelphia, was killed late Sunday night when his body slammed into a parked car...

He is the anti-Santa. Rob Sparks, a debt-recovery agent, or "repo man," works on the front lines of the economic downturn, where he encounters people at their most vulnerable - and their most desperate. At 6-foot-5, with a commanding voice, a gold chain around his neck, and a foot-and-a-half-long black Maglite flashlight in his hand, Sparks, 25, is not the sort of man you would want to threaten or assault. But people have done those things when the Browns Mills native has arrived at their homes in the small hours of the morning to take back their cars, RVs, boats, motorcycles and other possessions.
