Linda McGee has been deluged with phone calls since Monday night, when the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers announced its plan to strike at the end of school Friday if it does not have a new contract.

The Christie administration is cutting its ties with a second contractor involved with managing a Sandy rebuilding program that has been the target of blistering criticism by stymied homeowners. Word of the impending termination of the $20 million URS Corp. contract, first reported Thursday night by WNYC public radio, came two days after dozens of distraught homeowners described inexplicable delays and a stalled rebuilding process - even after being approved for grants. The $700 million rebuilding program known as RREM - Reconstruction, Rehabilitation, Elevation and Mitigation - was designed as the centerpiece of the state's aid to Sandy-damaged homeowners.

A Philadelphia-area landmark has been desecrated. WIOQ has fired John Harvey (Harvey in the Morning). It has sacrificed quality programming in the name of the Almighty Rating. It has laid the blame of its decline in the ratings not on the doorstep of the program manager where it belongs, but squarely on the shoulders of the one morning DJ in the entire area who offered an oasis of friendly, intelligent humor in the midst of a vast desert of fast-talking, denigrating hype-mongers whose unfathomable popularity surely must come from the same audience that made Laverne and Shirley the nation's No. 1 television show for so many years.

In a rare bit of good news for the poor, a Philadelphia nonprofit increased participation by city seniors in the food-stamp program by using marketing techniques better known to the private sector than the anti-poverty world. Food-stamp usage among people ages 60 and older grew by 23 percent between 2010 and 2012, according to a new report prepared for the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which administers the food-stamp program, now known as SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program)

AFTER SEVERAL months of sending out resumes and applying for jobs, all Joyce Bacon wanted was an interview - a chance to meet with an employer face-to-face to talk about her skills. Little did Bacon know that chance would come at a world-renowned medical institution, and one not far from her home - Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. In April, she was hired as a patient sitter, and recently promoted to in-patient clerk. Bacon, 36, is among dozens of West Philadelphia residents who have gotten opportunities through the West Philadelphia Skills Initiative, a job-training program created by the University City District (UCD)

Coach's impact spans decades I cannot imagine what swimming coach Dick Shoulberg possibly could have done to deserve such disrespectful treatment after his long and successful career at Germantown Academy ("GA swim coach to return, but only in limited role," Dec. 17). Maybe he fostered too much happiness by enabling hundreds of swimmers to confidently access their full potential. Perhaps the life lessons learned in the pool inspired too many of his swimmers to become teachers, doctors, lawyers, leaders, coaches, and outstanding citizens.

It's a good thing red bread mold grows so quickly. Camden County College student Paul Manofu has only a few weeks to study the effects of tobacco on the fast-growing Neurospora crassa , considered a "model organism" for research because of its 24-hour growth spurts. He's hoping the experiment offers clues in the study of the "internal clock" that helps regulate cycles such as sleeping patterns, eating times, and energy levels. It's all part of a larger project led by Rutgers-Camden biology professor Kwangwon Lee. "If the circadian rhythm is altered in the model organism, it's likely to be modeled in humans as well," Manofu said, as he examined six glass tubes bound together with the fungus growing inside, fuzzy bursts of peach-colored mold every few inches.
