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.

By directly spending $650 million each year, Rowan University generates a total economic impact in New Jersey of $1.23 billion, according to a report released Thursday. Rowan commissioned the report, hiring Philadelphia-based Econsult Solutions to analyze the university's role in providing indirect economic support to the state - increased consumer spending by construction workers, for example, who work on campus projects. "Being an economic engine is so important, because we really have come to the realization no institution can survive and thrive, permanently and indefinitely, until the surrounding region - the region in which it is located - the population thrives as well," Ali A. Houshmand, Rowan's president, said at a press briefing.

Three percent of patients hospitalized in Pennsylvania in fiscal 2014 were "super-utilizers" - people admitted five or more times in a year, according to a new report from the Pennsylvania Health Care Cost Containment Council. Those 21,308 people accounted for 11 percent of total admissions and 14 percent of hospital days. The report estimated that super-utilizers were responsible for $545 million - 14 percent - of Medicare payments for inpatient stays and $216 million - 17 percent - of Medicaid payments in 2012.

FOX 4 TV in Fort Myers, Fla., reported that police there arrested Eagles safety Nate Allen yesterday. The station offered no details, and the team said it was attempting to obtain information on the situation. Allen, 27, a second-round draft choice from South Florida in 2010, will become a free agent next month and seems unlikely to return to the Eagles. Daily News attempts last night to contact Allen, the Fort Myers police and Allen's agent, Todd France, were unsuccessful.

TRENTON - New Jersey owed $41.8 billion in debt borrowed from capital markets for the fiscal year that ended June 30, an increase of just under 1 percent from the prior year and the smallest uptick since Gov. Christie took office in 2010. However, the state has already issued about $2.6 billion in new bonds since July 1 for transportation, school construction, and other purposes, suggesting last fiscal year's modest $381 million in new borrowing may have been a temporary lull. Moreover, the state's nonbonded obligations - which include public-employee benefits and accumulated sick leave - increased to $43 billion in fiscal year 2014, up 12.6 percent from the $38.2 billion New Jersey owed the previous year.

MAYORAL HOPEFUL T. Milton Street Sr., self-described champion of the "little guy," finally filed his campaign-finance report with the County Board of Elections yesterday. And surprise! (OK, maybe not.) Street's report - filed six days past the deadline, along with a $130 fine - lists a single cash donation of $2,900 from deep-pocketed developer Ori Feibush. At first blush, it may seem an odd alliance, although both are political outsiders. Feibush, a City Council candidate who has donated at least $250,000 to his own campaign fund, is at ground zero of the debate over the gentrification of historically poverty-stricken neighborhoods such as Point Breeze.

Only 45 percent of low-income children who eat lunch at school in Pennsylvania also eat a school breakfast, according to a report released Tuesday by a national food research group. Pennsylvania's score was several percentage points below the national average - and New Jersey's - in the School Breakfast Scorecard compiled by the Food Research and Action Center (FRAC). One notable exception, however, is Penn Wood Middle School in Darby Borough, the site of the news conference to discuss the findings.

Saying they had been "swatted," police are investigating two false reports of shootings in Bala Cynwyd in Lower Merion Township Saturday. "Nobody was shot in our township," a Lower Merion Township police dispatcher said Saturday. When "swatting," callers play a dangerous trick on law enforcement by contacting police to report crimes that never occurred, prompting officers to rush to the scene for no reason. Besides wasting resources, it creates unecessary danger as officers drive quickly to the scene.

A new William Penn Foundation-commissioned study paints a portrait of the Philadelphia arts scene as rife with both promise and peril. The report, which examines more than 160 groups, says some are coming up with innovative ways to adjust to changing demographics and ticket-buying patterns, but it also finds that 70 percent are in poor financial health, undercapitalized, and unable to withstand financial stress or to fund new ideas. And while there is a promising new generation of philanthropists in the area, they have not been persuaded by arts groups to loosen their purse strings.
