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.

NOT EVEN an hour after his Chiefs fell in New England, incumbent Eagles head coach Doug Pederson moved to flesh out his staff. The obvious goal: Familiarity and experience. With only seven seasons as an NFL assistant, the first two spent as a 41-year-old intern, it is fair to question Pederson's bona fides as a coach. Considering his wish list, it is hard to question Pederson's strategy as a hirer. He clearly wants to insulate himself with loyal, accomplished men. A league source said Sunday that, if he has his way, Pederson's chief lieutenants will include a former teammate and two former NFL head coaches who, like Pederson, owe their NFL careers to Andy Reid.

A multitude of coaching changes began the day after Georgia's 13-7 victory over Georgia Tech in its final game of the regular season. Mark Richt, the Bulldogs' head coach for 15 seasons, was fired with the intention that he would coach in the bowl game, but he changed his mind after being introduced Dec. 4 as the new head coach at Miami.

Maggie Lucas leaped to her feet as the tenor of the game changed. She said "Let's go," clenched her fists, and followed with three forceful claps. The Germantown Academy girls' basketball team was within three points. It was the type of enthusiasm and intensity one has come to expect from Lucas, in her first year as an assistant for the Patriots. It's the type of demeanor people first became familiar with when Lucas was herself playing for GA, netting 2,197 points from 2006 to 2010.

Evelyn S. Lieberman, 71, a public-relations specialist in Washington who as deputy chief of staff under President Bill Clinton helped arrange a job transfer for Monica S. Lewinsky after becoming uneasy about the junior staffer's frequent presence around the Oval Office, died Dec. 12 in Washington. The cause was pancreatic cancer, said a friend, Julie Mason. Ms. Lieberman was known in the capital as the consummate public-relations professional, an adviser who assiduously worked to support her powerful bosses, including, at times, defending them from self-inflicted wounds.

After reading reports that she was under investigation by a grand jury, state Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane lamented in an email that a judge's protective order would prevent her from investigating what she called an "egregious leak. " Three days later, she ordered two of her aides to find the source of the leak. Her turnabout was laid out in the trial of Patrick Reese, her security chief, charged with contempt of court for allegedly violating the protective order in a bid to dig up information for his boss.

An undocumented immigrant driving to a Thursday night meeting in Mayfair with Mayor-elect Jim Kenney - to advocate for driver's licenses for immigrants - says she was stopped by police, who impounded her car and had it towed, leaving her and her three children on the street. The woman, who identified herself as Estela Hernandez, was part of a group organized by the New Sanctuary Movement to speak to Kenney at the meeting. Hernandez did not say why she had been stopped; police on Saturday night were unable to pull records of the case.

The troubled Education Plus Academy Cyber Charter School, which closed its six learning centers across the state and laid off 30 staffers earlier this week, has laid off the rest of its staff amid questions about its ability to continue to operate. Nicholas Torres, founding CEO of the cyber, based in Wayne, said Friday that the school had no choice after its bank shut down its line of credit. Without those funds, he said, the school was unable to meet payroll or pay for benefits. He said that Meridian Bank of Malvern had also frozen the school's account.
