Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron is, as the narrator (Matt Damon) says, "the history of the West told from the heart of a horse. " Chock-full of sweeping vistas and swooping aerial shots, wild gallops across rolling plains, and carefree gambols atop sun-burnished mesas, the animated feature is like N.C. Wyeth come alive - a romantic homage to the myth and magnificence of the American West. The title character in this fine DreamWorks yarn is a golden mustang who has, ahem, free rein over the land until the U.S. Cavalry arrives on the scene, routing the natives and rounding up the ponies to make them its own. A mustachioed colonel (voiced by James Cromwell)

The South rose again last night. The Philadelphia Spirit, playing its fourth game in as many nights on a Southern road swing, lost to the Jacksonville Hooters, 102-74. The 74 points are a United States Basketball League record for the fewest scored in a game. The previous mark was 76 held by two teams. The Spirit (12-3) lost three of four games on the road trip. Already playing without leading scorer Michael Anderson (injured hamstring), the Spirit lost Paul "Snoop" Graham five minutes into the game with an injured knee and played the rest of the game with just eight players.

If you can't fight City Hall, you can at least clean it. Anyhow, that's what 1,500 or so volunteers - including Mayor Rendell and Council President John Street - did Saturday. It may have been the first non-financial bath for the building in a century.

Hard-boiled and half-baked, The Spirit mashes vintage comic strips with new-fangled CGI, sucking the very life out of a mid-century pop icon in the process. Frank Miller, who began his career as an artist for Marvel (Daredevil was one of his early assignments), now seems bent on transposing the multi-panel, word-balloon format of comic books to live-action film in the most soul-crushing ways. Having collaborated with Robert Rodriguez on the green-screened, pinup pulp of Sin City, Miller takes his solo directing shot with The Spirit.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: My husband's sister "Beth" fancies herself a psychic of sorts who can communicate with the beyond. A few months ago, we were eating dinner when she began talking about a spirit with me. I honestly had no idea who she was talking about, and told her that, as I had no deceased relatives or friends who fit her description. Beth became very upset, claiming she was overwhelmed with what the spirit was trying to tell her. She was so upset she ran from the room to lie in a dark room and compose herself.

By B.G. Kelley Green is gold at the 2016 Olympic Games. Green as in money. NBC has sold more than $1.1 billion in TV and digital advertising. It's easy to see why: The network started promoting the 31st Games a year in advance Is that what the Olympics are about? Money? It often seems that way, doesn't it? Just another money-producing package of the monolithic sports-entertainment industry, built to cash in on pricey television contracts, off-the-charts advertising revenue, corporate sponsorship, athlete endorsements, and logo-saturated sports apparel and equipment - all delivering billions of dollars to such institutions as the International and U.S. Olympic Committees; FIFA, the governing body of soccer; major college and professional teams; high-profile athletes; and corporations and their shareholders.

     Noël Coward's Blithe Spirit is farce with an edge of darkness, a 1941 confection that suggested to wartime Londoners both the enduring bonds between the dead and the living and the trials of matrimony. Even then, the play was something of a throwback, evoking the Victorian fascination with séances and communication with the spirit world.       In the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Company's sturdy revival, the writer Charles Condomine (Ian Merrill Peakes), a stand-in for Coward, doesn't at first take any of this seriously: He's just trying to learn enough jargon and "tricks of the trade" to lend authenticity to his latest novel, about a homicidal medium.

Between its big amaro collection and its building's history as a whiskey rectifier, I expected the cocktails at Wm. Mulherin's Sons to be more broodingly brown-spirited than they are. But beverage manager Michael Haggerty manages to fuse both the restaurant's Italian spirit and its whiskey roots into one elegant drink that's also crystal clear. And potently deceptive. That's because the Fiore Bianco has plenty of whiskey - but it's white rye from Social Still in Bethlehem, blended with Arneis grappa, a dash of Benedictine and Carpano's white vermouth.

OCEAN CITY - Two picture perfect beach days at the New Jersey Shore this Memorial Day weekend, followed by a rainy, foggy close to the unofficial start of the summer season on Monday, drove home the point for Anna Palmieri: For beach town businesses such as hers, which depend on the brief tourist season to be in the black for the year, it's all about the weather. Palmieri has for 22 years owned Litterers, an Ocean City boardwalk institution that's been around since 1918 selling fruit juices, salads, and pizza.

Everybody's a critic. Each of us walks into a museum and says, "I like that!" or "You call that art?" Albert C. Barnes would approve. Barnes (1872-1951) feuded with the art establishment of his day and disliked most art historians and academic aestheticians. It was the unschooled lover of art he welcomed to his great art collection grounds in Lower Merion. His principal interest, he wrote in 1920, was education, first for himself, "then for those less fortunate ones around me, then in the education of the public.

Answering the phone one recent morning, Todd Barkan chirped out a lilting, "Lee Morgan!" The greeting, he explained, was "a combination of bebop and German. " It was also customized for a caller from Philadelphia, hometown of the great trumpet player. More than that, though, it was a prime indicator of how Barkan thinks in the language of jazz. From 1972 to 1983, Barkan got to tout his love for the music every night from the stage of the Keystone Korner, the nightclub he owned and ran in San Francisco.
