Nearly 500 miles in the sky above northern Siberia, two satellites collided with violent force Feb. 10, 2009, shattering into at least 2,000 fragments that continue to orbit Earth. And those are just the ones we know about. Scientists estimate there are hundreds of thousands of undetected objects in space resulting from collisions such as that one, and from the deterioration of old rocket boosters, dead satellites, and other stray hardware. That is the reason behind a squat, white structure that opened this year near Route 38 in Moorestown, at the South Jersey campus of Lockheed Martin Corp.

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.

Edward J. Kaminski was a dinner-plate fisherman, comfortable seeking out blues and flounders for his kitchen from his 18-foot motorboat. Closer to land than to the ocean deep. But in the 1990s, he and a few older men ventured forth, joining a younger sailboat crew. "The young guys sailed to Bermuda, and raced in a regatta there," but they had to fly back to their jobs, his wife, Helen, said. "So it was the old guys who brought the boats back," with all the heavy lifting that the effort demanded.

Staff Sgt. Zachary Huston missed seeing his family during most of the fall.

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)

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.

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.

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.
