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.

Changes in the union workforce at the Convention Center have dramatically lowered the cost of putting on an event there, an internal analysis shows. The report compares labor hours and the number of people working at this year's landmark Philadelphia Auto Show with last year's show, finding that lower costs and more efficiency yielded a 20 percent savings on the show's labor bill. "We were ecstatic," said Kevin Mazzucola, executive director of the Automobile Dealers Association of Greater Philadelphia, considering the attendance, the savings, and what he sees as a positive shift in attitude after union carpenters were replaced by union stagehands in May 2014.

THE TOP PICK in the NFL always walks to the podium, gets handed the hat of the team that selected him, and greets commissioner Roger Goodell. Not this year. According to Sports Illustrated's Peter King, Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston will not attend the draft, which will be held in Chicago from April 30-May 2. Apparently, Winston wants to stay home and watch the draft on TV with his family. There is speculation that the real reason he isn't attending is he wants to avoid a scene in which he is booed and ridiculed.

The Eagles have already dealt LeSean McCoy and Nick Foles, and Evan Mathis might be next. Mathis' name has surfaced in trade discussions, as NFL.com first reported, and Eagles coach Chip Kelly did not exactly shoot down the rumors when asked on Thursday. "I think in the last week, I think every person on this team was talked about on trade blocks," Kelly said. "We've had discussions about everybody and everything.

Joel Embiid lit up the Internet on Friday night after the 76ers posted videos on social media of him throwing down between-the-legs dunks. By Monday night, the question was whether those dunks caused the 76ers' cornerstone player to reinjure his surgically repaired foot. A report Monday on the Calkins Media website said Embiid had experienced a "minor setback" in his rehab and apparently was wearing a walking boot again. The Sixers were not available for comment. Embiid had surgery to repair the broken navicular bone on his right foot on June 20. Surgeon Richard Ferkel, who performed the operation in California, could not be reached for comment Monday night.

THE MUMMERS Parade broke with tradition and marched the "wrong way" on Broad Street on New Year's Day. The (remaining) fans seemed to like it. The crowds were somewhat larger in Center City (which is what happens when you contract the parade route). As a veteran parade watcher and reviewer, I liked it, even knowing the reversal of direction was born out of necessity. Doing everything the "old" way was turning into a funeral procession for this Philadelphia tradition, one that should be embraced.

JEREMY MACLIN, the last major offensive weapon left over from the Andy Reid Eagles regime, will join his former coach in Kansas City when free agency starts tomorrow at 4 p.m., ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported last night. The news was unexpected, given that there hadn't been much buzz about Maclin previously during the NFL's "legal tampering" period leading up to free agency, and the few reports that had surfaced spoke of Maclin and the Eagles continuing to try to reach agreement.
