Q. Thirty years ago we added a family room with sliding glass door and matching screen. Recently the latch on the screen door broke. I can't find anyone to come to my home to install a new latch and lock. Help! I'm tired of batting flies and bugs, not to mention dogs that use their noses to open the screen door. A. A simple device like a broken screen-door latch can turn a home into something akin to the San Diego Zoo. Finding a person to repair shouldn't be that difficult. Most window repair companies also can fix the latch on a sliding (or swinging)

Dear Anne and Nan: We have a Mayfair patio sliding glass door manufactured by Chamberlain, door size 6068. The sliding screen door has plastic clips at the top that fit in a runner, enabling it to slide. Both plastic clips are worn out and these clips support the door. This makes the screen door unusable and unable to slide. I would appreciate your help in locating these plastic clips, as I am unable to find them in our area. If possible, I would prefer a new screen door. - Emmett C. Le Blanc, Donaldsonville, La. We're so glad you wrote!

Valerie Callands didn't want her son, Curtis, shooting baskets in the schoolyard up the street from their home. So about three years ago, to keep Curtis and his friends from hanging out there and somehow getting hurt, her husband had an older son, Michael, put up a pole, basketball net and backboard in the driveway directly behind their house in the 8000 block of Williams Avenue in the city's Cedarbrook section. The plan worked until Sunday night, when even having the court less than 40 feet from the rear door couldn't protect Curtis Callands.

GADZOOKS! LAND OF GODZILLA SPAWNS ROBOTS THAT BREED! Robots will be able to "breed" like animals in the near future and may eventually evolve through natural selection, a Japanese researcher said. Yoshiaki Ichikawa of the Hitachi Ltd. Energy Research Laboratory in Tokyo said Thursday that he and his team had invented the world's first self- reproducing automaton. It uses microchips as "genetic codes" and "block components," or pre- assembled parts, as "cells. " The centipede-like metal creature assembles itself from parts scattered about the floor and "grows" to twice its original size before splitting into two identical, independent units, Ichikawa said.

TORONTO - The movie's over. The audience has laughed, cried, recoiled in horror at the bad behavior on display. But Bill Murray isn't finished. The titular star of St. Vincent - instantly a hallmark role of his career - creaks open the screen door to his character's pitiful backyard, headphones attached to a (yes!) portable cassette player, and starts singing along to Bob Dylan's "Shelter From the Storm. " For the next five minutes, as the credits roll for this feel-good comedy about a feel-bad guy, Murray fools around with a garden hose and echoes the Dylan verse on the sound track.

CLEVELAND - Ariel Castro, a 52-year-old former school bus driver, was charged with four counts of kidnapping - covering three captive women and the daughter born to one of them - and three counts of rape, against all three women. The women, now in their 20s and 30s, vanished separately between 2002 and 2004. At the time, they were 14, 16 and 20 years old. Prosecutors brought no charges against Castro's two brothers, who were arrested along with him on Monday, saying there was no evidence they had any part in the crime.

IF YOU DO NOT live in the North Philadelphia/Northern Liberties section of the city, you've missed the invasion of the four-legged creatures that arrive daily - not in silver, shimmering flying saucers, but in squeaky-brake vans with markings like U-Haul or Mayflower tattooed on their sides. "We come in peace," these invaders message through the tips of wagging tags and playful paws, but as I scrape the bottom of my shoe on the edge of my sidewalk, I doubt the sincerity of their actions.

WHAT DO you say when you do everything by the book and don't get results? I'll let you decide! On a recent night, my son went out at midnight to go to the store. He was parked in a lot across from my house and a CRV pulled behind him and blocked him in. My son waited, then honked his horn, but the driver wouldn't move. My son asked the guy to move. The guy replied with a few choice words and rolled his window back up. My son came into the house and went to get his cell phone.

Loresha Gaines is a mother on a mission: She wants to know who gunned down her 12-year-old son last summer in a Camden parking lot. Yesterday, she took matters into her own hands, with an emotional door-to-door appeal to residents in the neighborhood where Martin James "Pee Wee" Coleman was shot to death July Fourth. Escorted by a band of investigators, Gaines passed out hundreds of flyers in the Branch Village housing development seeking information to help find the killer.

On a day when the only difference between hell and the Philadelphia region was a screen door, 66-year-old block captain Alice Wright, stiff-legged from recent knee surgery, was making her rounds. Up and down Pennsgrove Street at 39th in West Philadelphia, she knocked on doors and rang their bells yesterday, urging those she calls "my seniors" to answer as the temperature climbed ever higher. "I don't want nobody to come and find one of my elderly dead," Wright said. Just a few blocks over on Mantua Avenue in July, a senior citizen had died in this kind of weather.
