There could have been no better sound to celebrate the gray humid chill of Saturday night than the distant romanticism of David Sylvian. Appearing with his sturdy ensemble at Theatre of Living Arts, Sylvian - a force in British jazz-inflected, ambient music since his days with Japan - inspired devotion in his fans and surprising humorous clutter in his arrangements of usually spartan songs. Whether singing about elated love, its bittersweet decay or spirits at unrest, Sylvian's burnished baritone was sweatlessly emotive and quietly committed.

"Tis the day before Christmas Eve and all through the showrooms, not a creature is stirring, not even . . . oops. Check that. There they are, once again. It's the Treniers. To be sure, this is the slowest time of the year for the casino-hotels. Most of the name entertainers aren't much interested in working during the Christmas holiday and, frankly, the casino people aren't much concerned about it. Even so, there are patrons, hard-core gamblers, who show up, and many of them like to take an occasional break and catch some entertainment.

For Donato Auriemma, a Norristown factory worker who made cinder blocks and candy and never learned English, life's highs and lows took place behind closed doors. Whenever the Italian immigrant's eyes got moist - at weddings, funerals or on the night his son's basketball team won a national championship - he excused himself. Men worked. Earned. Disciplined. They did not cry. "My father," said Geno Auriemma, the University of Connecticut's women's basketball coach, "was in the bathroom for a lot of life's great moments.

For voters in the Fifth Legislative District, the choices in Tuesday's primary can be summed up in a single word: unopposed. Incumbent Democratic State Sen. Walter Rand, and his running mates, Assemblymen Wayne R. Bryant and Joseph J. Roberts, will sail into the November election without so much as a squall of opposition. Their Republican counterparts, state Senate candidate Anthony J. De Gerolamo and Assembly candidates Hans Berg and Merle Ways, also will avoid primary fights.

Aides to Republican Sam Katz call their latest campaign weapon "Sam Unplugged. " They set up a stool in somebody's living room and let voters fire questions at their candidate. No scripts, and no press. The below-the-radar sales pitches are a key element of Katz's campaign this summer, along with a marathon of ethnic festivals and street fairs every weekend. Mayor Street has been busy himself, phoning and meeting with Democrats he's feuded with over the last four years in hopes of patching things up. Street campaign consultants have registered 8,500 new voters, and the mayor's public schedule shows him relentlessly visiting his electoral base in the city's black neighborhoods.

The footprints in the sand were large; those of a man, no doubt. A man in search of solitude, I deduced as my eye followed the heavy prints that trailed down the beach from the parking lot toward the pounding surf, then turned right and disappeared in the distance. Solitude was plentiful that early-December Saturday morning on this barrier island straddling the Maryland-Virginia border. The entire strand, throbbing under the basso-profundo pounding of the Atlantic surf, was deserted, the sand disturbed only by the occasional tracks of seabirds and the swirls of wind that rode shoreward on the shoulders of the crashing combers.

Testifying without any parents in the courtroom, three 7-year-old girls yesterday identified Robert Pasquarello, their teacher from nursery school and kindergarten, as the one who fondled them during rest and play periods at the Miquon School. The girls testified at a preliminary hearing that Pasquarello, whom they call Bob, moved his hand under their clothes and touched their genitals on a number of occasions at the private elementary school in Whitemarsh, Montgomery County. The alleged incidents occurred between 2000 and 2002, when they were 5 and 6 years old, according to their testimony.

It's been a long summer. Even though we've been blessed with cooler than normal temperatures, we haven't gotten a complete humidity reprieve. It's easy to fall into a running rut, especially if you're putting in marathon training miles with the race still months away, or you're just tired of sweating so much. What can you do if you're bored with running? A few things: 1. Sign up for a race. If you're running without a goal, you have less motivation to get out the door. I have a hard time forcing myself to run more than a mile or two if I'm not following a schedule to prepare for a race.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: Ever since my boyfriend and I moved in together this year, I have been uncomfortable with the amount of time his friends Jim and Dave spend at our house. They come over anywhere from two to five nights each week , often showing up unannounced. They will say they're just coming over to watch TV and have "a" beer, which usually turns into three, and don't leave till after I've gone to bed. This happens weekdays and weekends, whether or not my boyfriend and I already have plans with each other.

D EAR ABBY: I would like to respond to "Solitary Woman in Ottawa, Canada," the expectant mom who asked how she could raise her child to enjoy "periods of quiet, reflective fun by himself. " When my son was born, I felt it was important to give him confidence and the ability to be self-sufficient. Therefore, we have him help us with chores and encourage him to make healthy, responsible choices. When he was 2 and stopped taking naps, we told him that he had to have "quiet time" and that reading to himself was one of the options.

By Michael T. Dolan Stepping out into the cold November night, I shut the door behind me and listen. Inside, muted voices laugh and reminisce; children holler; an uncle plays "Heart and Soul" on the piano. Outside, however, all is still save the winter wind. Trees sway, a honking goose passes by above, and the streets are empty. Society has gathered indoors this evening, giving thanks and stuffing hearts and bodies with the sustenance of family and food. Outside, the quieting season has arrived.

ATLANTIC CITY - New Jersey's $38 billion tourism business - the state's third-largest industry - may be back on a roll after posting a 7 percent revenue increase in 2011 over the year before. And the particularly warm winter, which has attracted throngs of out-of-season visitors to the Jersey Shore, may extend the upward trend into the 2012 summer season, officials predict. That dose of optimism, after relatively flat tourism numbers between 2008 and 2010, came in a keynote address by Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno at the three-day 2012 New Jersey Tourism Industry Association conference last week at the Golden Nugget.

WE ALL SPEND the NFL offseason scheming about moves that can be made here, there and everywhere in order to make the Eagles better. Given enough quiet time - 76ers on the road, Flyers on the road, Phillies in Florida - it is possible to sit there with a legal pad and a cup of coffee and make a dozen trades and signings before lunch. Well, scratch that. Think minimalist instead. This is the exercise for the day: Calculate the fewest number of moves in the starting lineup that the Eagles would need to make in order to be a team that is good enough to win the NFC East in 2012, a team good enough to win 11 or 12 games and get hot at the end of the season and make a real run at a championship.

HARRISBURG - Maxine Felton was so proud to have a job and her own apartment in Harrisburg. But over time, the stack of bills in her apartment kept growing. Her mother, Iya Isoke, did not want to hurt Felton's pride, but she knew moving back in together might be best. They could help each other not only financially, but emotionally as well. Both women were raw with pain over the death of Isoke's fiance. So about a year ago, Felton moved into her mother's apartment. Isoke moved into a smaller bedroom because she wanted to give her 23-year-old daughter the big bedroom with the fireplace.

Jonathan V. Last is a senior writer for the Weekly Standard I've been spending a lot of time with Fred Rogers lately. Mr. Rogers passed away in 2003, but he lives on in an endless series of repeats on PBS stations across America. In life, he was celebrated as a secular saint and a national treasure. But now that he's gone it's clear he was more than that. For all of his sweetness, Mr. Rogers was a countercultural figure. His show, Mister Rogers' Neighborhood , presented a liberal view of the world that often verged on self-parody.

Q: My husband wants oral sex all the time. I'm not opposed to that, but how often should I be giving it? Mia: When you get, you have to give. It's only fair, right? Here's an idea: Do it while he's standing so more blood rushes to his lower regions, which can intensify his, um, reaction. Steve: I'm not a doctor, so I can't tell you how often to fellate your hubby. However, I consulted Dr. Ignatz Feelgood, who answered, "As often as possible. " Just kidding!

Lauryn Hill , absent from the airwaves - though not our hearts - for a decade, says she's ready to come back. Where was she all this time? The singer tells National Public Radio she needed an extended time-out. She needed quiet time to recharge her soul. "There were a number of different reasons" for her hiatus, the former Fugees star says. "But partly, the support system that I needed was not necessarily in place. There were things about myself, personal-growth things, that I had to go through in order to feel like it was worth it. " Artists, Hill says, nourish our collective soul, but often they are left to starve for love.
