Terry McFadden, 14, doesn't spend his Saturday mornings in bed or in front of the television. He spends it shooting hoops. Or singing. Or, perhaps, making a ceramic candy dish for his grandfather. Every Saturday at 9 a.m. for the last three years, McFadden, who is mildly retarded, has made the four-block trek from his house to the Houseman Recreation Center at Godfrey and Summerdale Avenues to take part in its recreation program for the handicapped. "This is great for him; he's always anxious to come here," said his grandfather, John McFadden, who picked him up a few minutes before noon one recent Saturday.

The death of Saturdays as a day of leisure, especially for women - as reported in a recent study - has many people in my fortysomething age group talking. Conducted by the NPD Group, an international market research firm, the study analyzed daily activities of men and women in the 1990s, presumably for the purpose of selling more take-out dinners to the frantic masses. The findings? Saturdays have become as rushed as weekdays, only more physically taxing. Not surprisingly, women bear the brunt of the load.

A cutback in federal spending is forcing local post offices to curtail their window hours, according to a spokeswoman with the Philadelphia Division of the U.S. Postal Service. "We must cut retail hours by 10 percent for the next 20 months," said Margaret Y. King, the manager of communications. The move affects almost 50 post office branches in Philadelphia, including about a dozen located in the Northeast. The changes went into effect Feb. 13. In almost all cases, the Postal Service is reducing hours on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Derek Davis has created much in his 30-year culinary career - 1701 Cafe in the Warwick, to Sonoma, Kansas City Prime, Arroyo Grill, Carmella's, and the current Derek's in Manayunk, and Main Line Prime meat market in Ardmore. But never a pizza parlor. And never in North Philly. Until Pizza Rosso (3240 N. Broad St., 215-226-2700), which occupies a new storefront in a shopping strip owned by business partner Dan Neducsin at Temple University Hospital and dental school. Why pizza: "Do you like pizza?"

Frozen yogurt, a basketball clinic, handshakes with military veterans. The six candidates for the Democratic nomination for mayor criss-crossed the city on the last Saturday before Tuesday's primary election. For some voters, there was apparently still plenty of time to decide. "It's competitive," said Charles Benjamin Clarke, a Vietnam vet who was honored at an American Legion event in Southwest Philadelphia. "I probably won't make up my mind until going into the home stretch.

AS BURT Reynolds mingles with fans at Wizard World Philadelphia this week - his first-ever Wizard World Comic Con - the geek speak is likely to center around what might have been. He might have been Han Solo. "Star Wars" creator George Lucas queried him about the job, but Reynolds turned it down and instead made "Smokey and the Bandit," a hit in its own right. "I saw the director, and we talked about it, but I wasn't really enthusiastic about it," said Reynolds, speaking from his home in Florida.

ON THE HEELS of being "discovered" and being an "overnight success" after 44 years as an actress, thanks to the "Insidious" films - the third of which comes out June 5 - Lin Shaye is in the spotlight and doing the pop-culture convention circuit for the last time. Last month, she was part of a panel at WonderCon, in Anaheim, Calif., which she says was "wild. " "There was a kid standing there with a lobster on his head asking a serious question," Shaye said, laughing. "It was a little hard to keep from cracking up. " Whether such a memorable experience is in store for the venerable actress at this year's Wizard World Philly Con this weekend is unknown.

The Flyers have extra motivation as they end their disappointing season Saturday afternoon against Ottawa at the Wells Fargo Center: They will be trying to prevent the surging Senators from clinching a playoff spot. "They'll be coming in with a lot of intensity, something I think we need from an opponent," said Flyers goalie Steve Mason, who will finish the best season of his seven-year career. "Hopefully, we'll be able to come away and ruin their season. " Ottawa (42-26-13), which owns a stunning 22-4-4 record since Feb. 10, can clinch a playoff spot if it registers one point.

IBF junior-welterweight champion Lamont Peterson knows that he and Danny Garcia had vastly different outcomes against a common opponent, Lucas Matthyesse. Don't read anything into it heading into Saturday's non-title fight with Garcia, Peterson said. "At the end of the day it makes no difference," said Peterson (33-2-1, 17 knockouts). "You can match it up many different ways, different fighters - it never makes any sense. There are so many situations and incidents throughout boxing history that tell you that makes no sense.

With three games left, the biggest question for the 76ers is whether Nerlens Noel has played his final game this season. Noel suffered a right-ankle sprain when he came down on the right foot of Will Bynum while attempting to block a shot during the fourth quarter of a 119-90 loss to the Washington Wizards on Wednesday night at the Wells Fargo Center. The 76ers rookie rolled the ankle and was in considerable pain. He was receiving treatment long after the game and was not available for comment.

American Airlines will combine the frequent-flier program of merger partner US Airways into its AAdvantage program, starting Saturday. The move to a single frequent-flier plan will take several days and will mesh 30 million US Airways' Dividend Miles members with 70 million American customers, American said in an e-mail message to travelers Tuesday. Although the two carriers officially merged in December 2013, the process of combining frequent-flier programs, obtaining a single operating certificate from the Federal Aviation Administration, and getting to a single computer reservation system are major steps that will not be completed until late this year.
