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.

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

Auxilium Pharmaceuticals Inc., a Chesterbrook-based drugmaker that sells testosterone-replacement and other treatments for men with erectile-dysfunction issues, says it has cut 30 percent of its staff and consolidated its three sales forces into two. The company said it hopes the cuts will save $75 million a year so it can speed development of therapies for other conditions. "Auxilium has faced significant challenges this year, in particular a dramatic decline in the testosterone-replacement therapy market," chief executive officer Adrian Adams said in a statement.

The secretary of the embattled Department of Veterans Affairs came to Philadelphia on Friday, touring VA facilities, chatting with employees, and taking a closed-door meeting with members of Congress. Secretary Robert McDonald took only a few questions and said his visit was a routine stop, pegged to the 100th anniversary of the agency's life insurance program. But it also follows months of scrutiny of the city's VA system, capped last week when local administrators came under fire for a training manual that appeared to depict their clients as Oscar the Grouch.

Temple legend Aaron McKie is the quintessential Philadelphia guy. But he also had a distinguished NBA career that has brought the North Philadelphia native a lifestyle he may never have dreamed of. But the tug to be at home and help build the program that turned him into a first-round draft pick and a 13-year NBA player is stronger than anything that was coming down the basketball pike, which is why McKie on Thursday joined coach Fran Dunphy's staff...

For a cook on the line, climbing up the career ladder of the brigade de cuisine is no easy feat - especially when the daily grind is often a single repetitive task amid a boisterous jumble of noise and heat. But there's a moment, at least once a day, when self-expression is encouraged and ingenuity is rewarded: staff meal. "You're working hard and learning everything that you can learn, and hoping that eventually you'll get the chance to do something so the chefs will take notice," says Pub & Kitchen executive chef Eli Collins, who worked as a line cook in multiple restaurants in Philadelphia before moving up to the sous chef position at Daniel Boulud's DBGB Kitchen and Bar in New York.

AS A SENIOR on a struggling University of Florida team, Jaylen Watkins started some games at cornerback and others at safety. But if you listen to Eagles defensive backs coach John Lovett expound on Watkins' allure, that mere fact doesn't fully contextualize the player's versatility and football intelligence. "When you talk to him about his defense at Florida, he knew what everybody did," Lovett said. "I talked to the defensive coordinator [D.J. Durkin] down there. They put him in at positions that he hadn't even practiced that week because he knew what everybody was doing.
