SEPTEMBER is not only back-to-school time, but a time to get back to all those things you've promised yourself to do, like spending more time working out and being healthy. A great way to give yourself a kick start and help the parks at the same time is by joining the first annual Walk for the Park. This Sunday at 9 a.m., join your fellow park-lovers on the Art Museum steps. This walk is special: It starts at the Art Museum and travels down the Ben Franklin Parkway to JFK Plaza and back to Eakins Oval - a view of the Parkway most of us get only through the windshield of our cars as we commute home.

You have "global positioning systems" for an expedition to the North Pole, "triptiks" to tell you how to drive to Disney World and soon you'll have 275 "diskmaps" to get you around Center City. The diskmaps - pizza panlike pieces of aluminum with a green background - are being complemented by 220 directional signs. They were unveiled yesterday at 12th Street between Market and Filbert. The system, known as Walk!Philadelphia, is being installed by the Center City District as part of its two-year streetscape improvement project.

Dan Roitman's company is called Stroll , a most ill-fitting name. From a growth perspective at least, Stroll's evolution has been anything but a leisurely pace. Born 12 years ago in a Maryland dorm room, the Center City company is an impressive display of the potential of any small business, though perhaps in the extreme. In just the last year, its revenue has exploded from $17 million to $40 million, with another doubling expected by the end of 2012. Profit growth was 400 percent last year, Roitman said.

Mayor Nutter took a walk in the park Saturday to promote Philadelphia parks. It was the start of a series of citywide programs to highlight Philadelphia's commitment to teaming with community groups to maintain the bounty of its 25 parks and recreation centers. Joining Nutter for a stroll along the Marshall Trail in Cobbs Creek Park were Deputy Police Commissioner Richard Ross and Parks and Recreation Commissioner Michael DiBerardi-nis. Nutter said preserving Cobbs Creek was a shared responsibility for the city and community.

Lately, I haven't been sleeping well. I turn in late, and wake up early - usually feeling energetic, but also a little uneasy. Could be the change of seasons. Or perhaps the angst of being on strike and unpaid when I'd rather be into week three of my fall semester duties as a professor at Temple. Part of my restlessness arises from a sense of foreboding that comes with the knowledge that this city - this regional community, to all who would trash Philadelphia and isolate themselves from its distress in the safety of the suburbs - is in troubled waters and that the hard times are getting worse.

More than 10,000 people around the region will take a fitness-inducing midday stroll Wednesday to mark National Walk @ Lunch Day. Half of them will be walking laps around Rittenhouse Square. Will it make much of a difference? Not if the walkers are looking to lose weight fast. An average person walking at an average pace for 30 minutes a day, five days a week, would need about seven weeks to expend the 3,500 calories that equals one pound. But there is a bigger point, said Gary D. Foster, director of Temple University's Center for Obesity Research and Education, who reluctantly did the math because there is a broader message in this: "Walking is a fantastic thing to do. Because it improves your health.

Twenty-four years after he killed two police officers and paralyzed a third with a bullet during a Good Friday shoot-out here, a Vietnam veteran was granted a small slice of freedom yesterday by a Superior Court judge who has been monitoring his confinement at Ancora Psychiatric Hospital. Under Judge Patricia R. LeBon's ruling, James T. Carhart, 46, will be permitted to stroll the grounds of the Winslow hospital for 30 minutes a day unescorted, according to Jack Smith, spokesman for the Burlington County Prosecutor's Office.

Pssst. Hey, you. Yeah, you. You say you've already taken the elevator to the top of the Washington Monument. You've been through the Air and Space Museum. You've shopped in Georgetown. You've walked up the Lincoln Memorial steps, and through the Holocaust Museum. You've eaten at all the ethnic restaurants. You've toured the White House, and stood under the Capitol Rotunda. You've got, you think, no reason to do another tourist thing in this world- famous city. Well how about a stroll in the square - Lafayette Square - to hear some juicy tales of murder, mayhem and intrigue?

REPORTS throughout Election Day that voter turnout was not anemic but actually rather healthy is gratifying. The turnout is especially encouraging given recent outrages related to elected officials in Pennsylvania. Through two separate deals - for disgraced Supreme Court Justice Seamus McCaffery and disgraced state Sen. LeAnna Washington - both will be able to retain their pensions. One response to such news would be to skip voting out of disgust, but reminding public officials that their constituents take voting seriously is the better option.

Let New York gloat about completing the High Line. Philadelphia is about to debut a linear park that might be even more impressive: the Schuylkill Banks Boardwalk. As wonderful as the High Line is, it merely allows people to wend their way through Manhattan a few stories above its bustling streets. When the latest segment of the Schuylkill Banks trail opens to the public Thursday, you'll be able to walk on water, under the glittering gaze of the Center City skyline. The new 15-foot-wide walkway dives into the river at Locust Street, and doesn't crawl back onto dry land until it reaches the South Street Bridge, a joyous journey more than 2,000 feet long.

A 16-YEAR-OLD male picked the wrong street to go for a walk with his rifle yesterday. The teen was carrying a pump-action rifle on Corlies Street near Tasker in South Philadelphia about 4 p.m. when he was spotted by two detectives - one from the Attorney General's Office, the other from the Police Department - who happened to be serving an unrelated warrant on a nearby home, Chief Inspector Scott Small said. The police detective told the teen to drop his weapon. He didn't, instead pointing the gun at the two law-enforcement officers.

IT LOOKED AS though Steve Robinson might have pulled out his table and photo displays for nothing last night as the rain poured and people scattered on Baltimore Avenue. Fortunately for Robinson and other business owners, the brief showers did not dampen spirits as hundreds of patrons weathered the storms for University City's third Baltimore Avenue Dollar Stroll. "The night was really successful. A lot of people came out," said Robinson, who opened You Photography Studios on Baltimore Avenue near 46th Street nearly two years ago. For $1, he offered a photo shoot, a frame and one 8x10 photo, a deal he said many people can't believe.

Q: Kimberly, I hate exercise, but I want my kids (ages 4 and 6) to be active. I have no idea where to begin. Any suggestions? - Unfit Mom A: That's a good question. While you personally do not dig exercise, it would be great if you'd lead through example. It doesn't have to be deep - just take a stroll in the neighborhood, or start using the stairs instead of the elevator to go up or down a few flights. Free play (just running around) is great for preschoolers. You can watch - or join in!
