Simon's Fund is all about awareness and raising fun and funds, but most important, about getting to the heart of the matter, which means providing tests ahead of time to detect heart problems and sudden cardiac arrest. On Jan. 30, more than 300 attended the annual Simon's Soiree at the Sheraton Valley Forge Hotel to eat, drink, raise funds, and honor Brian Hainline, chief medical officer of the NCAA, with the Protect This Heart Award. Hainline was recognized for his efforts to increase awareness about sudden cardiac arrest in students.

Illinois Sen. Paul Simon is expected to decide today whether to stop active campaigning for the Democratic presidential nomination or formally withdraw from the race. Simon finished a distant fourth in the Wisconsin primary yesterday, mortally wounding a campaign that has scored only one victory - in his home state last month. According to top campaign sources, Simon will decide what to do in meetings today. If he quits, about one-third of the 155 national convention delegates he won in Illinois would go to the Rev. Jesse Jackson, the other Illinois favorite son.

Columbia Records is rushing "Simon and Garfunkel: Collected Works" - a three-cassette/compact disc set containing 58 of the duo's classic songs - onto the shelves by Jan. 17. The special project is in commemoration of the induction of Simon and Garfunkel into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame later this month. Also due to be inducted in ceremonies are The Who, the Kinks, the Four Tops, Frankie Vallee and the Four Seasons, the Platters, Hank Ballard and the late Bobby Darin. "Collected Works," which features previously unpublished lyrics from Simon and Garfunkel tunes, was digitally remastered by Roy Halee, the engineer of the duo's original five albums.

The game in Camden County, say some Democratic officials, is Simon Says. Democratic Sheriff William J. Simon has what Freeholder Director Robert E. Andrews may need for his expected run for Congress: a battalion of campaign supporters and a proven ability to raise campaign funds. Andrews has what Simon wants: millions of dollars in county funds to expand the sheriff's department. That combination, say Democratic insiders, has given the longtime sheriff the power to squeeze concessions from Andrews and his fellow Democrats, who control the freeholder board.

Economists, journalists and even a few voters were poring over Sen. Paul Simon's latest barrage of numbers last week, trying to divine whether his formula for balancing the federal budget within three years added up. But Simon's real balancing act continued to be political, as the Illinois Democrat pressed both his pledge of a pay-as-you-go administration and a call for new spending on educational and social programs by "a government that cares....

Paul Simon's "Born at the Right Time" tour brought some unusual things to the Spectrum on Wednesday. Suit-wearing businessmen and youngsters born after Still Crazy After All These Years was released in 1975 rubbed shoulders in a communal dance powered by the 1986 Graceland hit "You Can Call Me Al. " Four Brazilian percussionists stirred up richly layered rhythms that made the heavy-metal drummers who frequently inhabit the building sound...

Eugene F. Salerno has no money for newspaper or radio advertisements, no patronage employees to post campaign signs. The medium in Salerno's bid to unseat Camden County Sheriff William J. Simon is 6,000 pamphlets - montages of newspaper articles critical of Simon - that Salerno hands shoppers outside stores. His strategy: "I usually try to get them before they go in, when they don't have a lot of packages. " For Salerno, 62, who retired last year after two decades in the Sheriff's Department, Tuesday's Democratic primary will be his fourth try for sheriff.

If Neil Simon had written Biloxi Blues - a memoir of his days as a World War II Army recruit - in the 1960s, we would surely have seen a parade of slick one-liners marching toward the barracks. But Simon has come to the service comedy - a form that has been absent with leave since Vietnam - in a mellower, more reflective mood. So has Mike Nichols, who here directs his first Simon film (having done four Simon plays on Broadway). Biloxi Blues is the second part of the trilogy of candidly autobiographical Simon plays.

Sen. Paul Simon halted his presidential campaign yesterday but did not formally withdraw as a candidate, thus maintaining his claim to the 166.5 delegates he has won thus far. The move drew fire from Democratic rival Jesse Jackson, who said Simon should do "the honorable thing" and drop out of the race. Under national party rules, a formal withdrawal would have released to Jackson the 47 at-large delegates Simon won in last month's Illinois primary, possibly giving back to Jackson an edge over current front-runner Michael S. Dukakis.

One natural consequence of being taken seriously as a presidential candidate is that people pay attention to what you have to say. And that can be a mixed blessing. Sen. Paul Simon (D., Ill.) is learning that lesson, regarding his views on fiscal policy in general and the federal budget deficit in particular. As Simon's poll numbers rise, his rivals have begun to focus on another set of figures - the ones attached to his economic proposals. Their implicit conclusion is that Simon is not the "Harry Truman pay-as-you-go Democrat" he claims to be. His economics, they say, owe a lot to a Republican president - Ronald Reagan.

Jamal Goode thought he had let his teammates down seconds before Simon Gratz won a Class 4A first-round overtime thriller, 63-61, against Lower Merion on Saturday. Goode, a 5-foot-8 senior for District 12's third-seeded Bulldogs (16-9), plucked the ball from an offensive player as the Aces tried to overcome a one-point deficit in the waning seconds of overtime at Harriton High. However, Goode controlled the ball only briefly before losing it out of bounds with 27.9 seconds remaining.

Nina Simone 's family isn't "Feeling Good. " A biopic starring Zoe Saldana as the R&B/Jazz chanteuse who died at age 70 in 2003, is due in April and the family is not pleased. A fresh round of criticism for the film erupted after the trailer and poster for "Nina" were unveiled Wednesday. Saldana posted a quote from the singer and civil rights activist on Twitter, and Simone's estate responded with: "Cool story but please take Nina's name out your mouth. For the rest of your life.

In the fourth quarter of the Electrons' come-from-behind, 59-54 overtime victory, the 6-foot-6, 180-pound center scored 11 points, grabbed three rebounds, blocked two shots, and added two steals.

THE TWO lasting memories of being a Flyer, in Simon Gagne's mind, are pretty fitting ones, mostly because of the way they bookend his significant time in Philadelphia. The first, he told reporters on a conference call Friday, was his rookie season. The 1999-2000 season, a year after the Flyers selected the Quebec native 22nd overall, saw the Flyers fall one game short of reaching the Stanley Cup Final. But Gagne scored 20 goals and tallied 28 assists that season, turning 20 in February.

LAURINE SIMONS didn't just read a newspaper or magazine. If she saw something interesting - and this well-rounded woman didn't have to turn many pages before a gem of information caught her eye - she would clip it out and show it to family and friends. That was just the way Laurine was, not only finding fascinating accounts of life on the planet to educate herself, but passionate about sharing them with others. She contributed her knowledge to two self-help books, wrote poetry and encouraged others to read through literacy programs.

FOR ALL intents and purposes, Simon Gagne's career was over in December, when he left the Boston Bruins to care for his late father, Pierre, who was losing his battle with liver cancer. His last game with the Bruins was Dec. 6. Fittingly, he scored a goal, one of just three he scored in his 23 games last season. He took a leave of absence following that game in Arizona and never returned to the Bruins after his father passed away the day after Christmas. Yesterday morning, Gagne officially decided to call it a career.

It's one of those stories that has lodged in the minds of many for its injustice and irony. Nina Simone - before she was Nina Simone, when she was still an aspiring classical pianist named Eunice Waymon - auditioned for the Curtis Institute of Music and was rejected on grounds of her race. The tale bubbles up every few years, refracted through the times, as it is doing again in our era of Ferguson and Sandra Bland. Simone herself recounted the story repeatedly during her lifetime.
