It was a crisp autumn morning, and W.B. Saul High was buzzing. And mooing. And barking, and baa-ing. Swinging a gate closed to keep brown jersey cow Tinker safe in her pen, Saul senior Marcus Bonaparte motioned to the farm fields, greenhouse, orchard, and school buildings on the 150 acres around him - all in the middle of urban Philadelphia. "There's no other place like this," Bonaparte said of the Roxborough school, set on busy Henry Avenue with cars whizzing by. True. At no other city school are there two farmers on staff.

On the kind of spring morning when the minds of most high school students are already on vacation, their eyes glazed, Mark Barnak is outdoors in the sunshine, wrestling pigs and loving it. "I like pigs," declares the good-natured Roxborough teen, struggling to keep 90 pounds of jiggling pork under control long enough for an injection. Even Barnak's reluctant partner, Jennifer Samarca of South Philly, agrees that injecting pigs with worm medication beats algebra any day. When pressed, just about all the students at the W.B. Saul High School of Agricultural Science will admit they really like school - at least the outdoor part.

"My future isn't exactly promising," says Rich, the AIDS victim. "I'll take you as is," replies his former lover, Saul. In that pledge of loyalty, William M. Hoffman finds not only the title of his play but also its touchingly humane stand in the face of the merciless momentum of The Plague. The Philadelphia Company's production of As Is serves the author and his message well. It opened last night at the Plays and Players Theater. This is one of the two best-known plays that have tackled the subject of AIDS.

Delran Police Chief Arthur Saul is California dreaming. After 34 years on the police force, he has started to plan for a life after law enforcement. That includes a leisurely trip to California to visit an old Army buddy. What will be different about the trip, Saul said, is that after he retires May 31, there will be no time constraints. He and Gloria, his wife of 36 years, will not have to be home at any particular time. "I don't have to be back any more," said a smiling Saul, who remembers hurried vacations that limited the time he could spend with friends or just relaxing.

When Jill Saul learned she was nominated for an Emmy award, she let her imagination run wild. "I thought they would fly us to Hollywood, and we'd get the $30,000 gift package," Saul, an adviser at Harry S. Truman High School in Bristol Township, said and laughed. Finding out she would hear, "And the winner is . . . " at the Philadelphia Marriott instead didn't curb her enthusiasm. Saul was nominated for a regional Emmy for the public-service announcement developed by Students Against Destructive Decisions, the club at Truman she advises with teaching assistant Karen Bloom.

Northeast's fourth Public League Coed Bowling championship in the last seven years was undoubtedly its toughest, but the Vikings pulled it off in dramatic fashion, beating Saul, 1,725-1,705, in a competitive match Wednesday at Erie Lanes. The Vikings' performance in the title match mirrored their regular season as they fell 60 pins behind but rallied with a solid second game. The Vikings lost their first three matches of the regular season, one to Saul. Four boys and two girls scored for the Vikings in the title match.

Remember last March, when there appeared to be a good chance a hint of sanity would finally come to Public League basketball for 2011-12? So much for that . . . Robert Coleman, the czar of PL sports, announced yesterday that only two of last season's 68 teams have vanished - Horace Furness and W.B. Saul. Coleman said Furness has entered into a cooperative sponsorship with Southern. It's hoped, he added, one between Saul and Roxborough will be finalized shortly. Multiple sources last winter claimed Coleman was looking to reduce the number of teams to 50. Though he did not confirm that number then, Coleman did not dispute it while saying, "I will be meeting with the higher-ups in the school district and we'll come up with a plan that's just and right.

Donald Martiny's paintings - lush gestures of paint on aluminum supports - function almost as bas-reliefs formed from paint. I've seen them in various places over the last few years, but his first solo show at Pentimenti Gallery offered me my first opportunity to see many of them together in person. They're remarkable in many ways, not least for the individuality each work embodies while simultaneously affirming Martiny's signature style. They also look terrific in this gallery, which has done well to turn over the entire space to Martiny and to leave lots of space between these assertive works.

James Franco gets a shave and a haircut and sets out to save John F. Kennedy from an assassin's bullet in Stephen King's time-travel drama 11.22.63 , starting Monday on Hulu. Yes, Hulu. Maybe someday a TV network will green-light a show in which one of its suits goes back in time to strangle streaming technology in its cradle, but until then a certain amount of confusion reigns. The online service owned by Disney-ABC, Fox, and Comcast's NBCUniversal continues to ramp up production on original series meant to help it compete with Netflix and Amazon, two other services that first bought TV reruns and out-of-the-theater movies and now compete with their sellers by making their own. CBS, meanwhile, has hired Bryan Fuller ( Hannibal , Pushing Daisies )

Son of Saul Ritz Five A Holocaust film like no other, about a Jewish prisoner in a Nazi death camp whose job is to usher fellow Jews into the crematoriums, and then to clear the corpses for the next wave. When he discovers a dead boy whom he believes to be his son, Saul (Géza Röhrig) goes on a mission to find a rabbi and arrange a proper burial. The power of László Nemes' close-in, intense film cannot be denied. Theory of Obscurity: A Film About The Residents International House, 3701 Chestnut St., 7 p.m. Wednesday The title of Don Hardy's movie about the mysterious avant-garde multimedia collective called the Residents takes its title from Bavarian composer and music theorist N. Senada's concept, which states that "an artist can only produce pure art when the expectations and influences of the outside world are not taken into consideration.

Jesse Saul said his teammates call them "garbage points. " His layups might not be pretty but they count all the same. Saul, a junior forward, raced down the court time and again to score in transition to spark Bishop Eustace to a 72-67 victory over Paul VI in an Olympic Conference National Division clash of Top 15 teams on Tuesday night. Saul generated 25 points and senior guard Mike Cohen broke a 67-67 tie with a three-point play with a little more than a minute on the clock for Bishop Eustace (5-1, 2-0 in the division)

* BETTER CALL SAUL. 10 p.m. Sunday, AMC. Moves to 10 p.m. Mondays following night. * THE JINX - THE LIFE AND DEATHS OF ROBERT DURST. 8 p.m. Sunday, HBO.   I HAD MY doubts about the much-anticipated "Better Call Saul. " Spinoffs are always chancy - for every "Frasier," there's at least one "Joey" or "AfterMASH" - and following a show like AMC's "Breaking Bad" only seemed to be asking for trouble. I'm relieved to be wrong. There is a show in Bob Odenkirk's "Breaking Bad" character, a crooked lawyer calling himself Saul Goodman, who, when it all hit the fan in "Bad," predicted a future for himself at a Cinnabon in Omaha.

THE FOURTH annual Harvest on Henry event last month was no pie-in-the-sky venture. It raised $13,000 to support the educational agricultural opportunities at Henry Got Crops CSA, a community-supported agriculture partnership between Saul High School, Weavers Way Food Co-op, Weavers Way Community Programs and Fairmount Park. The daylong festival gave Saul students a chance to interact with the public and featured farm-inspired activities, such as hay rides, pumpkin crafts and - to show off students' cooking skills - a pie-baking contest.

EVERY YEAR about this time, teacher Gail Koskela can't sleep. The W.B. Saul High School educator isn't awake fretting about plans for Saul's annual Country Fair Day, though. Nor is she up with anxiety that some students have senioritis. Koskela's worries are about the pregnant ewes at the school's barn in Upper Roxborough, where they wait to birth cute little lambs during lambing season. She used to leave her house during the night and drive 15 minutes to the barn just to see how the ewes were doing.

"Barry is a strong and proven leader with a vision to grow Saul Ewing to meet the needs of our clients at the pace they are evolving," Antzis said.

We take you back to Dec. 15, and Brinkman, a senior at Girard Academic Music Program, is still unsure whether he'll be accepted for admittance to a local college. He has been instructed to log on to a website at 6 o'clock, and that, presto, the news will be available. "I forgot all about the date," he said, sheepishly. "I guess that happened because I didn't think I had a chance.
