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.

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.

An unfounded report of a shooting at Valley Forge Military Academy and College late Monday afternoon may have been the result of a woman mistaking the popping of bubble wrap for gunfire, officials said tonight. A student at Eastern University living in an apartment adjacent to the military academy's campus in Radnor called 911 at 5:50 p.m. to report a shooting, academy officials said. Police from Radnor and Tredyffrin Townships responded but could not find evidence of that someone had been shot or that a weapon had been fired, officials said.

Here is Domo's report card for the Eagles-Cardinals game. Click here to send in your own grades. RUSHING OFFENSE The Eagles took the pressure off Carson Wentz by running the ball 34 times for 133 yards. Ryan Mathews had 22 of those carries. He averaged just 3.5 yards per carry and didn't have a run longer than 7 yards, but had five rushing first downs. Kenjon Barner had 17- and 19-yard runs. GRADE: B-plus PASSING OFFENSE The best thing about Carson Wentz's debut was that he didn't turn the ball over.

WHEN THE EAGLES HAVE THE BALL   With Carson Wentz at quarterback and Doug Pederson coaching his first game, there is some mystery about how the Eagles offense will look. Kansas City's offense in recent years with quarterback Alex Smith could offer hints: The Eagles will run the ball, trust a mobile quarterback with run-pass options, and feature the running backs and tight ends in the passing game. Look for Wentz to go downfield, and he'll likely make some "wow plays," as Pederson called them, mixed in with some poor decisions, like his interception in the preseason opener.

Large and illicit heaps of discarded tires are reappearing around New Jersey, a state auditor's study has found, and the report is urging a renewed effort to "monitor, identify, and remediate" them. "Scrap tires are not only an eyesore, but also present an environmental and public-health threat," State Auditor Stephen Eells wrote in an Aug. 22 memo to Gov. Christie and legislative leaders. Eells' office found that the colossal mountains of abandoned tires that once dotted the landscape were now gone, with "the vast majority" of used tires ultimately recycled.

A second report on the death of a 10-year-old foster child has found that a caseworker falsified documents after the boy's death and Philadelphia school officials failed to follow district protocol that could have helped him. The report on the death of Ethan Okula was released Tuesday by the Act 33 team charged with investigating child fatalities for the Department of Human Services. It's the first time a child's death has prompted a follow-up report since the review team was formed in 2009.

The nation's payrolls expanded by 151,000 positions in August, while the unemployment rate stayed at 4.9 percent, where it has been throughout the summer, the U.S. Labor Department reported on Friday. "This was far from exciting, but 151,000 jobs is about right where we would expect the U.S. economy to be at this stage in the cycle," wrote James Marple, senior economist at TD Economics, an offshoot of TD Bank. "Given the August payroll report's tendency to underwhelm, the size of the miss likely had many breathing a sigh of relief," he said.

He made a spot start for the Phillies on Aug. 3 and should return to the majors at the end of the triple-A season.

The union for narcotics agents in the Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office on Monday dropped its bid for a court order to block any immediate release of the so-called Porngate report, saying it was now confident that the report was weeks away from any release. Lawrence Moran Jr., a lawyer for the agents, said he now hoped to persuade the office to remove the names of all narcotics agents from any public report. At issue is a compendium identifying several hundred state employees and others deemed by a special prosecutor to have used government computers to send emails with pornography or other offensive content between 2008 and 2015.

The release of an incendiary report on the exchange of pornography on state computers will be delayed while officials make sure no one is unfairly maligned in the document. The last-minute freeze came after Douglas Gansler, the special prosecutor in the Porngate scandal, provoked an uproar of dread and embarrassment in the state Attorney General's Office this week. He did so by revealing he had prepared a report that publicly named "several hundred" employees in that agency and elsewhere as having used state computers to email pornography or other offensive material.
