Jaimee Drakewood hurried in from the rain, eager to get to her final appointment at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Ever since her birth 23 years ago, a team of researchers has been tracking every aspect of her development - gauging her progress as an infant, measuring her IQ as a preschooler, even peering into her adolescent brain using an MRI machine. Now, after nearly a quarter century, the federally funded study was ending, and the question the researchers had been asking was answered.

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.

Former Mayor Michael Nutter called City Controller Alan Butkovitz "a liar, a snake, and a hypocrite" Tuesday in response to a controller's report that more than $380,000 in Philadelphia Marathon proceeds were used as a "slush fund" under Nutter's watch. The report, released Tuesday, said the money was used in part for unapproved grants, a trip to Rome by Nutter and his staff, and an open-bar reception last year. The spending was approved solely by the chairwoman of the fund at the time, former City Representative Desiree Peterkin Bell, according to Butkovitz, with no oversight by the fund's board of directors, effectively circumventing the board's policies and control checks.

TRENTON - Gov. Christie on Tuesday brushed aside reports of ties between Donald Trump's campaign chairman and a pro-Russia political party in Ukraine, saying the issue doesn't reflect on the GOP presidential candidate. At a Statehouse news conference, the governor, a top Trump backer, also dismissed the idea that the candidate's prediction of a "rigged" election was dangerous, and said that despite Trump's trailing poll numbers, he wasn't worried that Trump's chances of winning in November were dwindling.

EAGLES TRAINING camp was going along a bit too quietly. No long-term, major injuries to key personnel. No contract disputes. No visible friction between Sam Bradford and Carson Wentz. Then came news Tuesday alleging another positive drug test for standout right tackle Lane Johnson, from local radio personality Darren DeGaetano. Johnson first denied to the Daily News that he was being suspended, but he later spoke with Fox's Jay Glazer, who tweeted that Johnson is awaiting B-sample results from a drug test indicating the presence of banned peptides - amino acid compounds that can help build muscle and burn fat. Since Johnson already has served a four-game suspension for PED use in 2014, if he is suspended again, he'll miss 10 games.

A pickup truck that crashed through the glass sliding lobby doors at Magee Rehabilitation Hospital in Center City Friday night was driven by a 38-year-old Folcroft woman who accelerated as she was leaving the parking garage, police said. The Ford F-150 struck four people who were standing in the lobby of the hospital on Race Street between 15th and 16th Streets, police said. A 41-year-old man from West Berlin, Camden County, who had been in the lobby at the time of the crash was in critical condition at Hahnemann University Hospital Saturday with internal bleeding, police said.

Remember David Buchanan? He was named the International League's pitcher of the week after allowing just two runs in his last three starts. The righthander struck out 13 batters and walked six over the 22-inning stretch. He has a 4.05 ERA this season in 19 starts. Buchanan will have a good chance of starting for the Phillies in September as the team could be forced to shut down some of its young pitchers because of innings constraints. . . . Darin Ruf hit his team-leading 13th homer on Tuesday night.

Comcast Corp.'s second-quarter revenues rose a slim 2.8 percent and the company reported a modest drop in profits as its slate of Hollywood movies - rocket-fueled in 2015 by the release of Furious 7 and Jurassic World - failed to repeat that success. Otherwise the cable and entertainment conglomerate had a solid quarter as its cable-TV business continued to heal - video subscriber losses were a negligible 4,000 compared with 69,000 in the year-ago quarter - and NBC broadcast-TV revenue rose 17 percent on more licensing and retransmission fees.

A dentist who was fired by Penn Dental Medicine is suing the University of Pennsylvania, alleging he was wrongfully terminated in retaliation for reporting that a fellow dentist was providing unnecessary treatment to make more money. In its legal response, Penn claims it fired Steven S. Pesis because he reviewed patients' records without permission, in violation of university policies and the federal law that protects the confidentiality of patients' medical information. Pesis' lawsuit is also against Peter B. Kauderwood, executive director of administration for Penn's School of Dental Medicine.
