Using public and private financing, a development company owned by Sam Katz, the former Philadelphia mayoral candidate, wants to build a $17 million sports center on a contaminated industrial site along Route 30 in Chester County. The center, with ice-skating rinks, indoor soccer fields and a wellness center, would be on the former Bishop Tube manufacturing site in Frazer, in East Whiteland Township. Abandoned two years ago, the 17-acre property - a brownfield, or environmentally contaminated site - is near the Route 202 high-tech corridor.

STUART SCOTT, the talented and entertaining anchor on ESPN's "SportsCenter," had a way with words. His famous catchphrases included: "Boo-Yah!" "As cool as the other side of the pillow. " "Just call him butter cuz he's on a roll. " Yesterday, Scott died at 49 after a lengthy battle with cancer. And fittingly, there were words. Words of love. Words of consolation. President Obama, actor Samuel L. Jackson, and former NBA star Michael Jordan were among those sharing their thoughts.

Many township residents did not object much to developer Ted van Beuren's proposals for a sports complex because they thought, in the words of resident Grace Matelyn, it would be "a little [neighborhood] sports place where kids would go. " But when an art show was booked last week at what has been billed as "the most spectacular multisports facility east of the Mississippi," traffic started piling up on West Bradford's winding, two-lane roads, and residents suddenly realized the facility was more than a few ball fields and neighborhood youngsters gathering for a pickup basketball game.

JIM GAIERO must have been carrying a lucky coin yesterday at Pocono Raceway. Producing his first NASCAR Sprint Cup telecast at Pocono for ESPN yesterday, Gaiero and viewers were treated to a finish as riveting as it gets. Kasey Kahne surged passed Jeff Gordon on the final restart with two laps remaining to win the GoBowling.com 400. "It was one of the more exciting Pocono races in a long time," Gaiero said. "The restarts were fun to watch. Our director, Richie Basile, and I talked about how important restarts would be. " One highlight of the telecast was the high camera showing how the race cars fan out four- and sometimes five-wide prior to funneling side-by-side into Turn 1, the highest banked curve on the 2.5-mile tri-oval.

A Bucks County man who hurled himself at a Velcro wall and didn't stick has sued the sports/entertainment center that owns it, charging that center employees failed to maintain "The Flytrap" properly.

This Adriatic city is home to some of the oldest Western art, but its adaptation to music has been more recent. The Philadelphia Orchestra, now at the halfway point of its European and Middle Eastern tour, will not be playing in a newer or more surprising setting than it did Wednesday, in its debut here. The hall is the Palazzo Mauro de Andre, a domed sports center just completed a mile outside town. Its open, square form can be altered to fit the needs of all indoor sports, but for its transformation into a concert hall, something more ingenious had to be engineered.

Rihanna is a drama queen. And that's fine. More than any female artist since Madonna in her Sex prime (that's NOT to say the now-older Madonna can't be in any prime at present, just that her newer material stinks), Rihanna has turned skin, sensuality and seduction into theater. Bouncing back-and-forth from dominatrix to waif, from zipless aggressor to detached femme-fatale to tender quarry, the 28-year-old seems to toy with her own mythology for sport and profit. The drama of her life beyond music is what drives RiRi's spectacular ANTI tour, which brought her to the Wells Fargo Center Sunday night.

For decades the city's Logan section has been known for one thing: sinking houses, a slow-motion disaster that cost millions of dollars and forced hundreds of families to abandon their homes. Now the neighborhood may become notable for something else: basketball. On Thursday, officials will announce that a new nonprofit group, Philadelphia Youth Basketball (PYB), hopes to raise $25 million to build a sports and education complex on part of a forsaken piece of property known as the Logan Triangle.

Mike Lasme started to pick up speed and momentum. Dribbling by one defender, then a second and a third with relative ease, Lasme was playing at his own controlled pace in a zone few high school soccer players can enter. After the third defender was beaten, Lasme calmly walked the ball in and scored yet another goal. It was a highlight-film play, one that may not be seen many times in a season. But it was the second time in one half that Lasme had gotten by three defenders and scored during a recent game against Burlington City.
