Gaeton Fonzi, 76, an investigative reporter for Philadelphia Magazine from 1959 to 1972 who later published his own conspiracy theory of the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy, died Thursday, Aug. 30, of Parkinson's disease at his home in Satellite Beach, Fla. "He was relentless," D. Herbert Lipson, chairman of Metrocorp, owner of Philadelphia and Boston Magazines, recalled. That intensity carried on after Mr. Fonzi left Philadelphia. "His whole obsession was the Kennedy assassination," Marie, his wife of 55 years, said.

I GUESS THE LIBERAL press will be building it own "wailing wall" because of one reporter asking President Obama a question. All the reporters there chased him down to the Washington Monument, like the villagers going after Frankenstein's monster. I suppose they forgot how they hounded Richard Nixon, or Sam Donaldson yelling questions at Ronald Reagan, probably even as he was trying to go to the bathroom. They say Richard Nixon broke the law, but not as much as Obama has tried to destroy our Constitution.

A reporter for the liberal online news service OpEdNews filed suit Thursday in U.S. District Court alleging that Philadelphia police improperly targeted her for arrest during a demonstration against military recruiting at Franklin Mills Mall in 2009. The demonstration attracted counter-demonstrators, and the two groups were monitored by the Philadelphia Police Department's Civil Affairs Unit. Photographer and writer Cheryl Biren-Wright said she was taking photographs for the news service when police singled her out from among other media representatives, seized her camera, and placed her under arrest.

Murrey Marder, 93, a Washington Post reporter whose tenacious coverage of Joseph McCarthy's anti-communist crusade foreshadowed the senator's downfall and disgrace, died March 11 at the Washington Home hospice. The cause was complications from a stroke last month, said his nephew Steve Marder. Mr. Marder's career spanned nearly eight decades, including World War II service in the South Pacific as a Marine Corps combat correspondent. He joined the Washington Post in 1946 and distinguished himself on the so-called Red Beat, the sensational trials and hearings about the alleged communist infiltration of government, Hollywood, and other industries.

William J. "Bill" Storm, perhaps the greatest "house-end" reporter who ever worked in Philadelphia, died Saturday of a stroke. He was 76 and lived in Roxborough and in Daytona, Fla. Bill Storm, a police reporter for 36 years for the old Philadelphia Evening Bulletin, was a maestro of the "house-ender. " That is a reporter knocking on the door of a grief-stricken family to get facts that puts faces and feelings into a story about tragedy. He was aggressive, smart and fast, but didn't fit the public's stereotype of the probing reporter - he was a gentleman.

Forwards FLYERS: Claude Giroux (86 points), Jake Voracek (62) and Wayne Simmonds (60) all posted more points than Rangers' leading scorer Mats Zuccarello (59) this season. The Flyers finished with a league-high seven 20-goal scorers to highlight their depth. On the surface, the Flyers finished tied for fourth in the Eastern Conference in goals scored. But when you take a deeper look at the numbers, they scored just 22 goals in their first 15 games. So, they've really been operating at a 3.19 goals per-game pace in the 67 games since - coinciding with their turnaround - which would have made them tops in the East (262 goals)

The economy has generated enough private-sector jobs to replace all those lost during the recession, according to data released Friday by the U.S. Labor Department. That was the headline news in an otherwise solid, but unremarkable, report. The unemployment rate remained unchanged at 6.7 percent, and payroll jobs were up by 192,000 in March. In March, private-sector, nongovernmental jobs edged just above 116 million. Such jobs numbered just below 116 million when the recession began in December 2007.

Reports from Penn State indicate that the Nittany Lions have suffered the second serious injury of their spring football practice sessions. Tight end Adam Breneman is out for the rest of the spring with a bruised knee, according to several websites. Breneman caught 15 passes for 186 yards and three touchdowns last season playing in a three-tight end rotation as a freshman. Blue White Illustrated was the first website to report his injury. Penn State coach James Franklin does not comment on injuries, and a team spokesman said any update on Breneman would have to come from the coach.

To borrow a word or phrase from the million-dollar investigation/absolution New Jersey taxpayers underwrote on behalf of Gov. Christie, I'm emotional. I'm upset . I'm nervous . I'm on fire . People say I appear to have been crying . And I have, in fact, cried. I'm really upset with him - even if the he in question is not the man I thought he was. Look, I don't want to talk about having been personally involved with someone in a position of power and influence in New Jersey.

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.

PHILADELPHIA Developer Bart Blatstein is buying for $13 million the site of the derailed Foxwoods Casino project in South Philadelphia, a property he owned 21 years ago, according to people familiar with the deal. Blatstein declined to comment. Others involved in the transaction say the sale will open up a critical section of the central Delaware River waterfront to the public. As part of the deal, Blatstein will convey to the Natural Lands Trust, a local land conservation organization, a 100-foot-wide strip of land along the river's edge from Tasker Street to Reed.
