BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. - A scaled-back search party took advantage of a break from stormy weather Saturday to hunt for a former Los Angeles police officer suspected in three killings, using heat-sensing helicopters and fanning out in fresh snow as vacationing families and weekend skiers frolicked nearby. The stark blue skies that emerged after a Friday snowstorm allowed San Bernardino County sheriff's choppers to fly low over the forest and SWAT teams to look for tracks and other clues that might lead to Christopher Dorner, 33, whose burned-out pickup was discovered in town Thursday.

Yesterday was the year's hottest day, and today could be even steamier, before stormy weather ushers in a stretch of cooler days. Today's high could edge yesterday's 91 in Philadelphia, with humidity that could make conditions feel like the mid-90s, according to an excessive heat warning issued by the National Weather Service for the city, its surrounding counties on both side of the Delaware River, as well as the Wilmington and Trenton areas....

THE DEDICATION of the Harry Kalas statue will have to wait until tomorrow. And the game that was scheduled to be played at Citizens Bank Park yesterday will have to wait until Sept. 20. Stormy weather early in the day and a dire forecast for later forced the Phillies to postpone yesterday's events even before the gates opened. The game against the Washington Nationals will be made up as part of a day/night doubleheader when the NL East rival returns in September. Roy Halladay, who would have been trying for his 16th win of the season, will make his next start tomorrow night against the NL West-leading Arizona Diamondbacks.

Stormy weather has slowed down a Coast Guard cutter that is towing a stricken recreational boat with six men aboard back to safe harbor. David Umberger, a Coast Guard spokesman, said the cutter is not expected to arrive at Atlantic City until late this afternoon, not this morning, as originally thought. The stormy weather is the cause, he said. The 32-foot Black Magic was found adrift about 120 miles east of Atlantic City Monday evening, 24 hours after the mother of the boat's owner reported it missing.

Over her dazzling five-decade career, Lena Horne soared from Cotton Club showgirl to the screen's "bronze bombshell" to one of Broadway's grandest dames. She made her remarkable flight while toting the expectations of two races on a thrush's fragile wings. The 92-year-old actress, activist, and vocalist, honored with Grammys, a Tony, and the NAACP's highest award, died Sunday night at New York-Presbyterian Hospital in New York City. The cause of death was not disclosed. In 1943, when she made her name in the Hollywood musicals Cabin in the Sky and Stormy Weather, Miss Horne became the first African American movie star.

My mother, jazz aficionado that she is, never understood how "Stormy Weather" became Lena Horne's signature song, especially when everybody else sang it better than she did. After all, Horne, who died Sunday at 92, couldn't swing or improvise like Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan. She wasn't much of a stylist, like Nancy Wilson and Dinah Washington. But her breathtaking beauty was indisputable, and as she got older, her voice grew into it. The more honest she became with herself, the more resonant her voice.

I Can Do Bad All By Myself , Tyler Perry's endearing adaptation of the melo-comedic stage play that introduced his alter ego Madea, is a double shot of Saturday-night lowdown chased by a cheery chug of Sunday-morning uplift. Starring that spitfire Taraji P. Henson ( The Curious Case of Benjamin Button ) as a lounge singer who resists assuming guardianship of her late sister's children, the film is a variety show that successfully prompts laughs, tears, and song, culminating in heaps o' hope.

The congratulatory handshakes and pats on the back seemed endless. Penn Relays officials, fans and competitors stopped the Coatesville High boys' distance medley team after last night's Championship of America race at Franklin Field. Although the Red Raiders wanted to speak to their parents, they didn't mind all the attention. The quartet of Sean Ward, Chris Cline, Owen Dawson and Kyle Dawson won the event in 10 minutes, 8.51 seconds. Colts Neck (N.J.) was a close second in 10:09.
