The Rage's recent road woes continued last night with a 78-75 loss to the Chicago Condors at the UIC Pavilion before a crowd of 4,695. The loss was the third straight by coach Anne Donovan's team (8-5), all by narrow margins. It was the Rage's first setback of the season to the expansion Condors (4-7) after two wins in Philadelphia. The defeat dropped the Rage 2 1/2 games behind two-time champion Columbus in the East Division. The Quest will make their second appearance of the season here tomorrow at 4 p.m. when the Rage return to the Apollo of Temple.

Taj McWilliams scored a season-high 20 points as the Rage overcame an 11-point halftime deficit and defeated the Atlanta Glory, 75-70, Saturday night. Adrienne Goodson added 18 points and 10 rebounds for the Rage, which trailed, 38-27, at intermission. "We couldn't hit a barn in the first half," Rage coach Lisa Boyer said. "They had control of the game. We had no offensive boards in the first half. Nobody was on the boards for us. " Rage guard Dawn Staley, from Dobbins Tech, was held to seven points on 2-for-16 shooting.

The coach is new, and the roster is almost totally rebuilt. But in last night's American Basketball League opener for the Rage, things were not much different from the way they were last season. The New England Blizzard, claiming their eighth victory in the teams' last nine meetings, beat the Rage, 72-63, at the Hartford Civic Center. The only solace for the visitors was a fourth-quarter comeback that provided some reason to hope there would be happier occasions to come. The Rage, who had trailed by 15 points late in the first half, began the last period with a 14-4 run that cut their deficit to 56-53 with 4 minutes, 14 seconds left.

Anne Donovan's preseason coaching debut was a success last night as the Rage flashed and crunched their way to an 87-78 victory over the New England Blizzard in an ABL exhibition game at the New Haven Coliseum. "It's good to get this one under our belts against someone else, rather than playing against ourselves" in practice, Donovan said. The two teams will meet again Nov. 5 in Hartford to launch the ABL's third season. Powered by point guard Andrea Nagy and four-time Olympian guard Teresa Edwards, the Rage used a 10-point run midway through the first quarter to break from a 5-5 tie and never trail again.

The Rage couldn't say "good-bye, Columbus" fast enough after the defending ABL champions won again, this time by 74-68 at the Palestra last night. The Quest (31-7) finished the eight-game season series with the Rage with a seventh straight win. After losing Saturday in a 100-64 blowout in Columbus, the Rage (12-25) succumbed last night to a defensive shutdown in which they failed to hit a field goal in the last 6 minutes, 23 seconds. That occurred after rookie Beth Morgan's three-pointer had given the Rage a 65-61 lead.

Dawn Staley was under the weather, and the Columbus Quest pushed the Rage further under the gun. With Staley slowed by a bum knee, a sore ankle and a bad cold, the Rage had trouble keeping up with the Quest after the first quarter. Columbus, thanks to a flurry of three-pointers and fastbreaks, rolled to a 77-61 victory last night before 4,109 at Battelle Hall. Philadelphia continues to slip deeper into last place, and further out of the playoff race. "We talk about it all the time," Rage coach Lisa Boyer said.

The first Rage season here came to an end at the Palestra last night with promises from the general manager and more of the same from the team. Playoff-bound Long Beach, the ABL's lone expansion team, used a balanced attack to roll to a 108-93 victory. The Rage also had balance, but they couldn't handle the inside power of the StingRays. The defeat was the ninth in 10 games for the Rage (13-31), who started the season 3-0 before slipping to the depths of the ABL. The StingRays (26-18)

New city, new attitude, new results. The Rage, which left Richmond, Va., this summer for a new home in Philadelphia, accomplished something last night it couldn't do when it mattered most last March: Beat the Columbus Quest. The Rage, sparked by a heroic effort by Dawn Staley, turned the tables on Columbus in the fourth quarter to win, 87-86, before a crowd of 3,850 at Battelle Hall in the American Basketball League season-opener for both teams. Staley, who had 10 of her 15 points in the fourth quarter, hit a driving 10-foot jump shot with 2.6 seconds remaining to cap a back-and-forth final minute.

Adrienne Goodson had 23 points and nine rebounds to lead the Rage to a 68-56 victory over the host Portland Power in an American Basketball League game at Memorial Coliseum last night. It was a big win for Philadelphia (10-15), the last-place team in the Eastern Conference. Martika Aldridge and former Dobbins Tech star Dawn Staley each scored 11 points for the Rage, which won on the road for only the fourth time this season. "We've been waiting for this," Staley said.

Tina DeSilvio said the Kiddie Kollege Day Care owner called twice that weekend. The first time was to say a planned trip to Storybook Land was canceled. The second was to report the reason - New Jersey officials had ordered the day care in Franklinville shut down. Immediately. Toxic mercury vapors had been detected inside the rooms where nearly 100 babies and children had played for two years. DeSilvio's daughters, then ages 3 and 6, were among them. "I'll never forget that call," DeSilvio said in a recent interview a few days ahead of the 10th anniversary of the Kiddie Kollege closing.

A multiracial crowd of blacks, whites, and Latinos protested the fatal police shootings of young black men around the country, marching Saturday night from the Fairhill section of North Philadelphia toward the 24th and 25th Districts and chanting angrily in what they proclaimed a "weekend of rage. " Several hundred people held signs and banners and an occasional American flag, planning as one leader of the Philly Coalition for REAL Justice put it, to "disrupt" and "shut down" police activity and area traffic.

EWING, N.J. - For a good three hours Tuesday morning, the conservative radio host was filling the airwaves with invective against the proposed gas-tax hike, ripping into a deal brokered in the "middle of the night" by Gov. Christie and Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto. Then, during a commercial break from Bill Spadea's four-hour morning show on New Jersey 101.5 FM came some interesting news: The governor had reached out to the station's news director. "That was the first time in six years Christie has ever called me to say, 'What should I do about this?

There's still plenty of anger out there over the 2008 financial crisis and plenty of suspicion that banks and corporations operate above the law. Add this sentiment to our continuing fascination with all things tech, and you get Mr. Robot , USA Network's critically lauded cyber-conspiracy thriller about a lone wolf who rises up against the rich and powerful. The show took home the best drama series award at this year's Golden Globes. Rami Malek ( The Pacific )

CHRISTINE FLOWERS wrote in the wake of the Orlando shootings: "What happened to the days when deaths were mourned, and fingers pointed afterwards when the heat of anger and despair had cooled to the equally painful but more manageable state of sad clarity?" OK, ma'am, pray tell. When is the right time to point fingers, investigate, question or assign blame? The day after? A week later? A month from now? Or the day before the next incident? Assuming your crystal ball is not too foggy.

Almost certainly deals will be made. Coach Brett Brown's new favorite phrase when describing his team is "positionally balanced.

Police in Bucks County are investigating an alleged road-rage incident Friday at Veterans Highway and New Falls Road in Bristol Township. The complainant told police that he first spotted the shooter, a white man with short, light-brown hair driving a small white sedan, on Veterans just before 11 a.m., the township Police Department said in a news release. The motorist said he was heading north in a Chevrolet S-10 pickup truck when the other driver tried to pass him on the shoulder, but could not. When both drivers neared the intersection of New Falls Road, the complainant said, he heard a "pinging" sound, looked in his rearview mirror, and saw the other motorist holding a black handgun, police said.
