Master limited partnerships are increasingly profitable and popular investments - particularly if you're playing the energy boom in Pennsylvania's backyards. But come tax time, these MLPs can also delay the filing of your returns. MLPs invest in oil and gas exploration and production, shale drilling, pipelines, and energy transport. Each year, these partnerships issue for investors income statements for tax purposes known as K-1s. But often the statements don't arrive until late March or early April, local financial planners say. John Nealon, Wilkes-Barre-based northern Pennsylvania regional managing partner at the accounting firm ParenteBeard, says there is widespread confusion among investor clients about who is responsible for finding the K-1s.

THE SWALLOWS come back to Capistrano. The monarch butterflies flutter away from Pacific Grove. Every spring. And every spring, the new baseball books arrive, polished and scrubbed, brimming with promise, kids on the first day of school. Have the Phillies ever had a bleaker spring? OK, 1960 comes to mind. Maybe '61, the year they wound up losing 23 in a row. You are going to need a good baseball book or two or three to get you through the summer. Leading off, "Where Nobody Knows Your Name.

The intrepid sun has finally beaten the frost into reluctant retreat. The croci have gathered enough confidence to venture their tender shoots outside the earth's blanket. After months of hibernation, you step outside to take a deep breath of warm, sweet, fresh air and ... Hack. Wheeze. Gasp. Shiver. Moan. Back to bed you go. Influenza B, the annual spring flu, is on the rise. With its cruel sense of timing, the virus has hit the Delaware Valley - and the nation - with slightly more virulence than usual.

FOR HIS final appearance of the 2014 Grapefruit League, Jonathan Papelbon climbed atop the mound at Bright House Field wearing catcher Carlos Ruiz's jersey. The veteran closer proceeded to allow a line-drive single, then retire the final three batters he faced, sending the Phillies on to the regular season while dressed like Dan Uggla. The moment was a fitting one for the Phillies bullpen to end the spring. After spending the last two seasons as a glaring liability, the unit is one that the team believes can develop into a strength in 2014.

They don't call it Mud Island for nothing. On Sunday, two days of rain and drizzle had left widening pools and fields of shoe-sucking muck in and around Fort Mifflin on the Delaware River. No one at the fort cared, it seemed. Certainly not the more than 40 volunteers who swarmed the place as the British never did. They were intent on cleaning and polishing and ripping out burned and bedraggled building elements, casting all debris into growing piles of soggy timbers and woebegone insulation.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Spring training, manager Ryne Sandberg said, was a time to preach fundamentals. The relentless Phillies coaching staff fired grounders at the infielders. Pregame drills were performed at game speed, and players noted the difference in intensity. Still, there was one principle they forgot, and the four-word reminder was tacked to corkboards at the clubhouse's entrances in mid-March. "Please Wash Your Hands," it said. More than a dozen Phillies were sick with flu symptoms.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - The ball off the bat of Ian Kinsler seemed at first catchable, and then at least playable. Bobby Abreu, making his sixth start in rightfield for the Phillies this spring, got a late jump, ran toward the ball slowly and awkwardly, then chased it into the corner and poked at it a couple of times before he threw it, sore shoulder and all, back toward the infield. Kinsler ended up at third base and scored what turned out to be the only run on a groundout in Detroit's exhibition victory yesterday.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Lefthander Cliff Lee completed a dominant performance in spring training Wednesday in his last start before his opening-day assignment. Lee allowed one run on six hits in five innings during a 1-0 loss to the Detroit Tigers at Bright House Field. "I have felt good the whole time, and spring training for me is over now and it is on to the real games," Lee said. "I am looking forward to it. " Lee will pitch Monday against the Rangers in Arlington, Texas. Although it's dangerous to get too caught up in spring-training statistics, Lee had a 2.55 ERA in 242/3 innings.

TEMPLE'S FOOTBALL team is practicing 15 times this spring. None can be at the program's 10th and Diamond facility because Chudoff Field is being resurfaced. Which means Matt Rhule's guys are hitting the road. The Owls will have 10 scheduled workouts at Camden High's Farnham Park, one (Alumni Day) at Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church (site of the old Temple Stadium), one at Haddon Township's Paul VI High, one at Plymouth Whitemarsh High and another on campus at Geasey Field, which used to be their practice site.

DUNEDIN, Fla. - Carlos Ruiz has looked relaxed all spring and it's been reflected in his play. The Phillies catcher started last year playing catch-up and never hit his groove until late in the season. Now he has a new contract, a fresh outlook and the same old respect around the clubhouse. Ruiz began last season with the well-documented 25-game suspension for unsanctioned Adderall use. Less than a month after returning, he suffered a right hamstring strain and was on the disabled list from May 20 through June 17. Upon his return, Ruiz was far from at his best.
