TODAY BEGINS another school year in Philadelphia where students are asked to make do with little or less. For thousands of students - 3,652 according to the school district - making do starts way before the first bell rings. The Eliza Shirley House is an emergency homeless shelter in Center City for women and children run by the Salvation Army. The shelter is full every night. Inside are families in survival mode. But between trying to make sense of how they got here and what they need to get out, preparations are made for the first day of school.

A GENERATION FROM NOW, people will still talk about the way Bradley William Stone went about butchering his ex-wife and her family, leaving a trail of blood and gore across Montgomery County as he moved from house to house, town to town, ambushing them in the middle of the night like a demon from hell. But no matter how many times the story is revisited, no one will ever be able to answer the question that gnaws at the soul of anyone who discovers all of this heartache and horror: Why?

Summer is the season you remember. Who remembers winter, really? Unless there was a blizzard, and you got into a fight over the legality of whether two wobbly kitchen chairs and a broom constitute a reserved parking space, in which case you'd rather forget winter anyway. Spring is fine, especially when you catch an unexpected whiff of lilac on a soft breeze. And autumn is spectacular, until those golden maple leaves lose their brilliance and clog your gutters. But summer is the season that creates warm memories.

It was deep into the evening when the Arciero sisters strode through the doors and turned heads at the Point in Bryn Mawr. Long-legged Olivia, 15, in a white cowboy hat. Jillian, 12, black hat tilted to show green eyes. Dominique, 14, slim in black, fetching in a white hat. And Gabriela, 10, her red cowboy hat giving her a jaunty look. They call themselves the Little Women Band, and they have hopes of finding fame in Nashville. On this Tuesday evening, they were at the Main Line coffeehouse to sing.

AXEL BARRETO made headlines Jan. 10, 2012, when he stormed out the back door of his Juniata Park home, and shot up a Toyota Corolla containing seven teenage boys who had come to fight one of his three stepsons. Three of the boys in the car died, one survived a gunshot to the neck and three were uninjured. The car had been circling the block before the shooting. Barreto, 32, goes on trial this week and could receive the death penalty if his jury finds him guilty of first-degree murder.

Breathing easy 'cuz you've got Series tickets? Think again, Deitz-and-Watson breath. Think weeknights. Think extra innings. Think late, late nights. Think baby sitters. At up to $7 an hour - if you can even find someone to watch the little darlings. Oh, the travails of those Phillies fans suddenly favored with tickets: High-priced baby sitters, inconvenient business meetings, scheduled trials, unscheduled tribulations - getting to the games can be almost as tough for the fanatics as for the Phillies.

In times of need, Hollie Smythe has, conveniently, brought her report card home late from Rancocas Valley Regional High School. "So I don't get grounded for the weekend," she explained. Once, Hollie even indulged in the time-honored practice of changing an "F" to a "B," according to her mother. But no longer. Hollie's mother, Irene, and hundreds of other parents were required last night to attend a "Back to School Night" at the high school on Jacksonville Road to pick up their youngsters' progress reports for the first marking period.

Hello there   It was 9 p.m. on a school night, and eighth-grade teacher Megan would have been sleeping if not for her three brothers pounding on her bedroom door. They were buying inaugural-season tickets for the Philadelphia Union. Was she in, or out? She'd been waffling for days between her lifelong love of soccer and qualms about tying up 18 Saturdays. "All right!" she told Pete, Bear, and Ryan. "I'll do it!" On April 10, 2010, Megan and the boys, who then all still lived with their parents in Holme Circle, found their seats at the first Union match at Lincoln Financial Field - PPL Park wasn't open yet. They sat next to another sibling set of season ticket holders, Andrew and Kevan.

The Neshaminy school board has asked the Bucks County district attorney to investigate allegations that teachers have been targeted for not supporting their union in the ongoing contract dispute with the school district. "The board has concluded that credible concerns exist for the safety of our staff," the board's president, Ritchie Webb, said Tuesday. He based that view on a report by David Ferrara, a Neshaminy High School history teacher and assistant football coach, who said that one of his tires was slashed in the high school parking lot a day after he accused leaders of the Neshaminy Federation of Teachers of harassing and shunning others who did not support the union.

I'll admit that I went to Wednesday's performance of Of Mythic Proportions hoping Kensington teenagers would explain the inexplicable - why it's easier to get a gun in their neighborhood than a job, why seven of their own squeezed into a Toyota Corolla at 10:30 on a recent school night eager to fight, why only four came home alive. The timing of the show is eerie, since cast members knew the victims. But the Mariana Bracetti Academy Charter School students who turn harrowing reality into art aren't criminologists or social scientists.

Consider the poor surgical patient. Clad in a flimsy hospital gown, the patient is wheeled into a chilly room and placed on a table beneath banks of blinding light. Strangers wearing face masks hover above. It's enough to rattle the toughest of us. "No doubt about it, getting wheeled into an operating room is a frightening prospect," said Bryn Mawr Hospital's David McGinnis, a urologic surgeon. But help is on the way: a new "mini medical school" for adults being offered by Main Line School Night in tandem with Main Line Health.
