This weekend will be a moving experience for the New Jersey Legislature. With their quarters nearly completed, lawmakers and their partisan staffs are starting to set up shop in the new legislative wing of the Statehouse, renovated to the tune of $90 million, including an addition for the staffs. For the last five years they have been working out of the Statehouse Annex.

Remember the city budget deficit? It could be as high as $80 million this year. Remember the job freeze and the early retirement programs that were supposed to help reduce the red ink? Well, the freeze and early retirement programs are lowering employment levels in the Police, Fire and Streets departments, health centers, the parks and recreation programs. Elsewhere in city government - the mayor's office, anti-graffiti office, city solicitor's office, City Council - it's business as usual.

Knight Ridder, the company that owns the Philadelphia Inquirer and Philadelphia Daily News, yesterday announced plans to cut staff at most of its 32 daily newspapers. Tony Ridder, the company's chairman and chief executive officer, said he felt "we have no choice" because advertising revenue was falling while the cost of newsprint was increasing. "There will be reductions at most newspapers," Ridder said in a statement. "The number will vary according to local market conditions.

Doctors, nurses and other hospital personnel throughout the country are becoming increasingly concerned that they might get AIDS from the blood of their patients. The signs of this concern are subtle, but they can be seen everywhere - especially on the maternity floors of inner-city hospitals. There, many of the patients are intravenous-drug users, and delivering babies is a bloody business. Consider a recent visit to the obstetrics service at the Medical College of Pennsylvania and Hospital, one of the busiest units in the city.

A worldwide effort to wring the fat out of U.S. military headquarters' staffs by eliminating several thousand troops and dozens of generals and admirals actually produced a few more members of the Army, Navy and Marine Corps. Two years ago, then-Defense Secretary Frank C. Carlucci ordered that 3,000 positions be cut, but when the military carried out that directive, three of the branches ended up with nine more positions than when they started, according to Pentagon documents recently released by Congress.

Last week, while members of Congress were spending the Independence Day holiday break taking soundings back home, there was no vacation for some of their staff employees. Those on the committees that had voted last month to send different versions of health legislation to the full House and Senate were working with leadership staff aides to prepare for the floor debate beginning later in July. It was - and is - a huge task. Four committees, two in the House and two in the Senate, cleared five different health-care measures - one of them preferring to approve two, rather than one. No two are identical and many have provisions that are flatly incompatible.

Dinner and drinks at Lorenzo's, a pricey Trenton watering hole that caters to lobbyists and government officials. Tickets to the Baltimore Orioles, the Mets and the Yankees. An expense-paid trip to a luxury Florida resort last October. Special interests, including hospitals, liquor companies, casinos and utilities, shelled out more than $117,000 last year to wine and dine lawmakers, their staffs and officials in the governor's office, according to a report released yesterday by New Jersey Common Cause.

Nurse manager Pat Fetterman was asked to do two jobs for the salary of one after Mercy Haverford Hospital scaled back its workforce this spring. She now supervises a staff of 65 instead of 15. Randall Williams was relieved when he recently landed work as an emergency-room medical clerk after having been laid off twice in the last nine months from two other hospital jobs. He celebrated by filling up his refrigerator. And Sucorea VanBrunt searched for a job for six months before realizing she probably would not find another one in a hospital.

* Re: Frandsen delivers in a pinch (July 12): The Phils did not beat many good teams or pitchers the last two years. They have fattened up on all the mediocrity in MLB. 90% of RHoward's prodigious numbers over the years have come from AA and AAA callups, not legit #1's in anybody's rotation. If these guys can start beating the good staffs, we may have something here. The Cards' and Tigers' staffs will tell us a lot about this team the next 2 weeks. Mark1npt, Philly.com

WE DEFINITELY need term limits. Politicians get stale and feel like Tiger Woods - entitled to everything! And during a financial crisis like we are in now, we should be able to lay off City Council and their staffs. Council and their staffs should get minimum wage - they'll be working for the people, and with all the perks they get, they'll be just fine. Politicians argue that the salaries are needed to keep out corruption, but they get high salaries and are still corrupt. We need to stop voting for incumbents until they start serving us and not the special interests.

La Salle University just welcomed the first female president in its 152-year history. The Dalai Lama will visit the campus in October, and students and staff are eagerly awaiting Pope Francis' arrival next month in Philadelphia. But that excitement hasn't protected the Catholic university from enrollment struggles, as many small, private universities compete for fewer applicants. Faced with a more-than-$12-million shortfall - the largest in recent school history - and a precipitous drop in the freshman class, La Salle recently laid off 23 employees, about 3 percent of the workforce.

HARRISBURG - Gov. Wolf on Thursday named Mary Isenhour, a key aide and Democratic Party veteran, to be his new chief of staff, one day after Katie McGinty resigned for what many observers believe will be a U.S. Senate campaign. A former state Democratic Party leader and political strategist, Isenhour had been Wolf's director of legislative affairs. "She is stepping into some very big shoes," the governor said during a Capitol news conference. But he said she knows how to manage people and has the ability to work with the Republican-controlled legislature.

Katie McGinty, Gov. Wolf's chief of staff for the last six months, resigned Wednesday and is expected to soon enter the 2016 Democratic primary election for the U.S. Senate. Wolf's press secretary, Jeff Sheridan, on Wednesday said McGinty told the governor that it would be her last day on the job. Speculation has swirled in recent weeks around McGinty and the Senate race, fueled in part by her meeting two weekends ago with officials from the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee on Martha's Vineyard.

NEW FLYERS coach Dave Hakstol has yet to fill out his staff. The logical supposition, given Hakstol's college roots, is that at least one member of the staff will be an NHL veteran, possibly with head coaching experience. Phantoms coach Terry Murray, went the speculation, would have fit perfectly, given his head coaching experience with the Capitals, Flyers, Panthers and Kings. But Murray is going to Buffalo instead, joining new coach Dan Bylsma's staff. Buffalo's general manager is Tim Murray, Terry's nephew.

GRAND FORKS, N.D. - Nearly three weeks after his hiring, Dave Hakstol is still sorting out who will join him on the Flyers' bench as assistant coaches. One thing is clear: One of Hakstol's assistants from North Dakota, Dane Jackson, will not relocate to Philadelphia. Hakstol approached Jackson about the opportunity, but Jackson - who played 45 NHL games and coached with Hakstol for nine seasons - declined because of family reasons. Jackson's wife, Carrie, has roots in the Grand Forks area.

WITH DAVE HAKSTOL at the helm, the next question is: Who will be joining him on the Flyers' bench next season? When Craig Berube was fired on April 17, general manager Ron Hextall said the fate of assistant coaches Ian Laperriere, Gord Murphy and Joe Mullen rested in the hands of the team's 19th head coach. Now, surrounding rookie head coach Hakstol with an NHL-experienced staff will be the top priority. That process began after yesterday's introductory press conference. "We'll form a staff from there," Hextall said.

The Camden City School District is laying off 31 teachers and 46 student services staffers because of budget cuts and declining enrollment, officials said Monday. District officials, who informed affected employees Monday and are expected to announce the layoffs at the advisory school board's meeting Tuesday, also will cut 15 staff from the central office, which over the last two years has lost about half its positions. The numbers are smaller than those Superintendent Paymon Rouhanifard had offered as estimates during a hearing last month, when he cautioned that 150 to 350 layoffs might be necessary to make the $49 million in cuts needed to balance the budget.

Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane's new chief of staff has been accused by an assistant state prosecutor of making inappropriate and unwanted sexual advances. Deputy Attorney General Michele Kluk confirmed in an interview Thursday that she reported the February 2014 incident to her superiors shortly after it occurred - more than a year before Kane promoted Jonathan Duecker, a former supervisor of the office's narcotics agents, to the new post. In addition, a second woman who works in the office has told supervisors that Duecker had sexually harassed her, according to people familiar with the woman's account.

A GROUP OF TEACHERS and staffers at Olney Charter High School yesterday filed a petition with the National Labor Relations Board requesting the federal agency conduct an election that would allow employees to become unionized. The filing included signed union authorization cards from Olney employees and stated that the new union would be part of the Alliance of Charter School Employees, an affiliate of the American Federation of Teachers, according to the petition. More than 70 percent of the 150-person staff signed on to the effort, which may face a challenge from Olney's charter operator, ASPIRA Inc. of Pennsylvania.

The Coatesville Area School District has reassigned staff members, eliminated some jobs, and suspended staff members with the intent to dismiss as a result of its internal investigation into district management. These and other details have emerged about the extent of mismanagement in the Chester County school district, whose former superintendent and former athletic director were arrested last year on theft and state ethics violations. The arrests were the result of an investigation by the county's District Attorney's Office.
