HARRISON, N.J. - Before last night's match against New York, Union manager John Hackworth was asked whether he believed Red Bulls forward Thierry Henry had anything left in the tank. The 36-year-old Henry answered that question himself in New York's 2-1 victory. It was Henry who was waited in front of Union goalkeeper Zac MacMath in the 57th minute and notched his second goal of the season, assisted by Eric Alexander and Roy Miller. The Red Bulls added another goal in the 67th minute, earning their first win of the season, while handing the Union its second loss.

LOOKING TO GET back in the win column, the Union will visit Red Bull Arena for an Eastern Conference battle against the winless New York Red Bulls at 7 o'clock tonight. More than a month ago, the Union earned its only victory of the season, a 1-0 win over visiting New England. Since then, the Union is 0-1-3, with three draws in its last three games. Like the Union, the Red Bulls have come close to winning multiple times, with four straight draws sandwiched by an opening 4-1 loss to Vancouver and a 1-0 loss to D.C. United.

A transportation report issued Monday about the use of red-light cameras throughout New Jersey shows a decrease in crashes at intersections where the devices are used. Two locations where a three-year analysis was available shows that right-angle crashes are down 86 percent, rear-end crashes are down 58 percent, and total crashes are down 72 percent, according to the New Jersey Department of Transportation. Estimated crash-severity costs have been reduced $246,200. Initially, rear-end crashes at some intersections increased, according to a report issued a year ago. The reports are part of a five-year red-light pilot program that was launched in 2009 and ends in December.

ALL PETE ROSE wants is a second chance. Twenty-five years ago, Rose was banned from the game he knew and loved. For 15 years, the game's all-time hits leader denied the allegations that he bet on baseball, but in 2004, Rose came clean. Yesterday, Rose made an appearance at Christ's Church of the Valley in Royersford to be interviewed in front of three of the largest crowds the church had ever experienced. Speaking with Senior Pastor Brian Jones at the 9, 10:15 and 11:30 a.m. services, Rose used the time to tell the audience of past experiences in the game, the mistake he made as a manager and his hope for a chance to be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

A majority of New Jersey motorists continues to support the use of red-light cameras, but in declining numbers, a new survey by AAA shows. The poll of 1,000 motorists found 56 percent support use of the cameras to catch drivers who run red lights. That's down from 77 percent in 2007, before New Jersey allowed the use of such cameras, and down from 61 percent in 2011, as cameras were being used in 25 towns as part of a five-year pilot program. Some of the change in attitude may be attributed to their increased usage, as people who have been caught by red-light cameras are more likely to view them negatively, AAA Mid-Atlantic spokeswoman Jenny Robinson said.

Science disappeared, but Geometry was saved. After a house fire in Strawberry Mansion last year, a cat named Science went missing, but Geometry was rescued by Red Paw Emergency Relief Team, a nonprofit that assists people and their pets when fire strikes. A month after the fire, Geo - as Red Paw nicknamed him - was surrendered by his owners, who were still struggling to get their lives back in order. The cat remained in Red Paw's foster care until he was recently adopted by a firefighter.

The recent layoffs announced by Crozer-Keystone Health System and Temple University Health System are a sign of financial turmoil at all but the strongest Philadelphia-area hospital networks. Crozer and Temple both had operating losses in the six months ending Dec. 31, and so did Einstein Health Network and Holy Redeemer Health System. However, officials at Einstein, which has hospitals in Philadelphia and Montgomery County, and at Holy Redeemer, which has a hospital in Meadowbrook and other diverse health services in the region, said Thursday that neither system was planning layoffs.

Amid a winter ranked among the worst in the Philadelphia region's history, the local Red Cross has struggled to deliver disaster relief. "We have been incredibly busy," Renee Cardwell Hughes, CEO of the American Red Cross of Southeastern Pennsylvania, said Monday. The area has been buffeted by excessive snow, bitter temperatures, ice storms, and power outages. "We always see an uptick in fires when the weather gets cold, but because there has been no break in the cold weather, we have seen an incredible number of fires," the former Common Pleas Court judge said.

Hollywood's brightest stars sparkled at Sunday night's Academy Awards in gowns fashioned from nude metallics and white shimmer, wrapping up a nearly flawless red-carpet season. The night's best-dressed prize goes to Naomi Watts, stunning in a white, cap-sleeved dress courtesy of Francisco Costa for Calvin Klein. Lupita Nyong'o was a close second. She looked like she was floating in the icy-blue, whimsical Prada gown that she said reminded her of Nairobi, Kenya, her childhood home.
