JAMES GERARD BECKER III, whose friends called him Ray or Jib, would have gotten such a kick out of yesterday's Eagles quarterback trade, his family said last night. The Kensington CAPA High School senior "would have had a field day with that," said his uncle Tony Becker, standing in a small kitchen in his brother's house. The teen's father, James G. Becker Jr., chimed in: "He wanted to work in sports any way he could get into it. " But his son's career dream was dashed Thursday when he was accidentally shot by classmate Ivan Oberholtzer inside Oberholtzer's bedroom in Kensington, a police spokeswoman said last night.

Kane, said she "misspoke" when she said Kane would not bring criminal charges related to the pornographic images her office discovered when reviewing e-mails of state employees.

Snow, ice, and power outages have forced some area colleges to shut down for as many as eight days since the start of the second semester in mid-January, putting them in a position of scrambling to make up the time before the school year ends. Some have asked professors to use more online lectures, journals, blogs, quizzes, database research, and other methods that do not require face-to-face meetings. Others are taking different approaches. Villanova University will begin offering instruction on Sundays to make up for seven lost days.

When the new 7-Eleven opened Thursday at 10th and Filbert streets in Center City, passersby unfamiliar with the area would never know it was the store's first day of business, save for the sparkle of the countertops and a scribbled note taped to the door. That's partly because the convenience-store chain plans grand-opening celebrations a full month after actual openings, using the first month to fix glitches and get a feel for customers' buying habits.
