TATTLE can understand - even respect - Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes not wanting to pimp their new baby for media attention. But could it really be true, as so many tabs are reporting, that not even their friends have seen Suri? Do they not have any friends? Wasn't it Elaine on "Seinfeld" who intoned, "You've got to see the baby! When are you going to see the baby?" It's a rite of passage. Parents show off their babies like they're prize pumpkins. So what's going on?

Eric Frein may have been spotted in the woods by a police officer Monday afternoon. But the man dressed in green quickly disappeared out of sight into the dense forest near the Swiftwater, Pa., post office, police said. "A search of the area was conducted, but no one was located," State Trooper Tom Kelly said of the sighting. The Pocono Mountain School District was closed Tuesday as the search continued for Frein, the alleged killer of a trooper who has evaded capture for more than five weeks.

After nine days on the lam, Norman Johnston is becoming a "colder target. " Despite nearly a dozen reported sightings in and around southern Chester County and northern Maryland, police admitted that only one Johnston sighting has been confirmed.

Henry Oleyniczak said, "But remember that we really only have one confirmed sighting.

Nikolas Haass, a German M.D.-Ph.D and cancer researcher at Philadelphia's Wistar Institute, was horseback-riding on Saturday. So he came late to what birders had been chattering about on the Internet all afternoon: a brown-headed nuthatch had been identified in New Jersey for the first time. By 10 yesterday morning, Haass was at Cape and Lincoln Avenues, a beachside corner of dunes and pines where the tiny bird had been recorded - a rare spotting north of southern Delaware.

A sighting of the elusive cougar was reported yesterday at Cobbs Creek Golf Club near Overbrook Park. Three golfers teeing off at the 15th hole said they saw the animal frolicking in a sand trap about 2:30 p.m., club employee Michael Schonzeit said. Startled, the cougar reportedly ambled off into nearby woods. The golfers said they were about 200 yards from the cougar when they spotted it, Schonzeit said. They completed the 18-hole course, returned to the clubhouse and reported the sighting.

All day long, there was no sighting of the wayward whale. But no news didn't mean good news. Thirty-five hours after it was last seen, the whale was finally spotted yesterday afternoon on the Delaware River - four miles north of Monday's sighting, away from the ocean. Marine scientists who had flown into Philadelphia to track the rare right whale as it meandered along the Delaware had hoped that the whale had made it to the open sea by now. "It concerns us," said Ed Lyman, with the Center for Coastal Studies on Cape Cod. "The longer it stays, the greater the chance of colliding with a ship.

Anyone see a lion in Upper Darby? On Tuesday, police received two anonymous calls reporting a mountain lion or bobcat may have been sighted entering the woods near Township Line Road and State Road, police said. Animal Control was dispatched to the area but no supersized feline was found, Police Superintendent Michael J. Chitwood said. There were reports of an earlier dogfight with a "large burly looking dog" who ran off, said Chitwood. "That is what we believe it was. " That didn't stop the media circus, however.

A day later, she left the Doubletree Hotel in Center City for a day of sightseeing. She was wearing jeans, white sneakers, a three-quarter-length dark coat and was carrying a red backpack.

He just might be smarter than the average game officer. At least he has been for the last two days. A meandering black bear that has been spotted five times in Lower Bucks County since Tuesday has so far managed to elude authorities. That has left Scott M. Thomas, a wildlife conservation officer with the Pennsylvania Game Commission, to bear the burden of being outsmarted by a bear. "He's out here somewhere," Thomas said yesterday afternoon from the driver's seat of his forest green Ford Bronco.

SUNRISE, Fla. - New Flyers coach Dave Hakstol gave a strong scouting report on goalie Matej Tomek, whom the Flyers may select during the final day of the NHL draft Saturday. Hakstol recruited Tomek for the University of North Dakota, and the player will be a freshman at the school. He will be considered if he's available when the Flyers make their first third-round pick (70st overall), acquired in the Tye McGinn trade with San Jose. Playing in the North American Hockey League last season, the 6-foot-2, 180-pound Tomek had a 1.83 goals-against average and .928 save percentage.

HARRISBURG - With 10 days until a new fiscal year, the Wolf administration and the GOP-controlled legislature will have to pull the equivalent of a college cramming session to meet the deadline to enact a state budget. The two sides have met behind closed doors for months, with little obvious progress on the issues that have dominated Capitol discourse: property-tax reform, liquor privatization, and a fix for skyrocketing pension costs. By last week, the only agreement between the Democratic governor and Republican legislative leaders was the size of the budget gap - $1.2 billion.

IN MANY Tattle items over the years, we've pitched made-up TV shows, movie sequels and spin-offs based on dopey ideas voiced elsewhere in the column. Our most recent suggestion, thanks to Caitlyn Jenner , was a remake of "Bosom Buddies" with actual transgender actors. But with all the crazy ideas we have broached over the years - some just to have the lawsuit ready when they're stolen from us - we're not sure we could ever come up with a reality show/social experiment as icky as A&E's "Married at First Sight.

Robin Carpenter has come a long way since his first race up the Manayunk Wall. Nearly a decade ago, a teenage Carpenter pedaled up the famed hill on the corner of Lyceum Avenue and Pechin Street for a time trial - his first foray into bike racing. Now 23 and an upstart in the cycling world, the Philadelphia native sees the Wall as more than just the fastest way home to his parents' house in Roxborough. This Sunday, the Wall marks the start and finish lines of the Philadelphia International Cycling Classic, a 110.7-mile, nine-lap race featuring some of the world's top cyclists.

MILLVILLE - When Thomas Walkup was denied educational services in April from the state Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired - services that may have helped the 8-year-old to cope with a congenital condition known as "shaky eye syndrome" - his mother wouldn't give up on finding help. And, ultimately, the rejection inspired Susan Walkup Banks to find a solution - surgery in California this summer - that may restore full vision for her son. Thomas has dealt with congenital nystagmus since birth.

Although Daevon is only 8, he already has his sights set on a career. Make that two careers: He aspires to be a firefighter and a professional basketball player. Until he's old enough to do one - or both - he has plenty of other interests to keep him occupied. He's athletic, and delights in any kind of physical activity, including riding his bike. In school, his best subject may be math, but his favorite class is gym. He also enjoys video and computer games, Buffalo wings, French fries, and shrimp-fried rice.

Gloucester Catholic coach Mike Rucci was asked how motivated his seniors were to make a mark in this season's tournament. "Tremendously," he said.

EVERY April, there is a buzz in the football world that usually revolves around the NFL draft. This week, Chip Kelly, Marcus Mariota and other prominent names will be hard to avoid until Eagles fans find out just what Kelly has in store for his team. Next year, the focus of the city, aside from Kelly's antics, could be squarely on North Broad Street. The Temple Owls have a cluster of players who could hear their names called from the lectern at the 2016 NFL draft. "I think we'll have a bunch of guys next year that get invited to the combine, a bunch of guys get drafted," coach Matt Rhule said.

In an attempt to strengthen the transfer rules, the NJSIAA could inadvertently be punishing some innocent people who may have to switch schools due to diminishing finances. That is just one example why a potential new transfer rule is short-sighted. And something of this magnitude should be voted on by each member school, which may not be the case. To give some quick background, the NJSIAA's advisory committee on April 1 approved a proposal to curb transferring for athletic advantage.

The Eagles' unpredictable offseason continued Monday when the team worked out Tim Tebow, the polarizing quarterback who has not played in the NFL for the last two seasons. Eagles coach Chip Kelly did not comment on the workout. No deal with Tebow was announced, and ESPN reported that the Eagles would not sign him at this time. But the mere mention of his workout became breaking news in the NFL, which speaks to Tebow's popularity. Tebow, 27, was a 2010 first-round pick who last played for the New England Patriots in the 2013 preseason.
