Camden's Yum-Yum summers lasted from the mid-1930s until the late '80s. But fondness for the distinctive, locally made frozen treat - with its unusual "split" flavors and creamy texture - endures among folks who grew up in the city. "In the early '70s in Fairview, kids with a wagon sold Yum-Yum from a steel container with ice all around it," recalls Paul Christman, 54, a retail clerk who lives in Runnemede. "We'd be playing outside at Westfield Acres and hear the boy with the wagon yelling, 'Yum-Yum, Yum-Yum,' " says Audubon resident Lori Jean Nourse, 55, a painter.

PATCO riders may suffer more pain in the summer to get less pain in the winter. PATCO officials are considering a new, hurry-up schedule for track work on the Ben Franklin Bridge that would create additional train delays between July and September but get the work completed seven months early and avoid slow schedules in the fall and winter. The schedule would mean fewer daily trains between July 4 and Labor Day, PATCO general manager John Rink said Wednesday. The proposed schedule would be similar to the train schedule PATCO used last year from August to October, with service at least every 15 minutes during rush hours.

ATLANTIC CITY - Amid the tumult of layoffs, a busy Mayor Don Guardian declared a summer of entertainment, then vowed to try to save Stockton University's "island campus" project. Guardian laid out an impressive to-do list for the season during a conference call with reporters Tuesday. After declaring his beleaguered but resilient Boardwalk town the "entertainment capital of the Jersey Shore," Guardian said he was convening a meeting Friday to try to coax a settlement in the Stockton standoff.

Like some portentous nightmare, the summer of 2015 presented itself to me the other day at the AMC Loews Cherry Hill. I was there to see Furious 7 (Vin Diesel, start writing that Oscar acceptance speech - now!). But first came the trailers, one after the other after the other, signaling a daunting pileup of digitally polished productions that will be kabooming in 3-D and Imax through Hollywood's most lucrative season. The so-called summer that begins this Friday with the Marvel Cinematic Universe installment Avengers: Age of Ultron and ends Labor Day weekend with The Transporter Refueled offers a whopping roster of remakes, reboots, resets, prequels, sequels, spinoffs, and thrice-baked tales set in some other, nostalgia-tinged time zone.

The 76ers now say that Joel Embiid will participate in summer-league basketball after all. Sixers CEO Scott O'Neil was asked Tuesday by The Comcast Network if the center would play in the summer. "He will. Yes, he will," O'Neil responded. On April 8, coach Brett Brown would not commit to the 7-foot rookie's playing in the summer leagues. However, Brown said he would be disappointed if the former Kansas star did not play. Embiid missed the entire season as he recovered from right foot surgery.

Jason Richardson is open to re-signing with the 76ers this summer. The 34-year-old envisions himself in a similar role to the one he had this season. He would mentor his young teammates, be a positive influence and receive some playing time - maybe just not as the starting shooting guard. "I don't have a problem coming back here," said Richardson, whose contract expires in June. "I like every guy in this locker room, believe it or not. . . . And I love coach Brett [Brown]. He's one of my favorite coaches of all time.

Classical music will return this summer to the Mann Center, albeit in a diminished state. The Philadelphia Orchestra, which once played an 18-concert series in Fairmount Park, and more recently nine, will perform six this summer - and only three can be considered purely classical. The season will open June 23 with fireworks and Tchaikovsky. Cristian Macelaru will conduct the Romeo and Juliet Fantasy-Overture and, with cellist Hai-Ye Ni, Variations on a Rococo Theme . Nino Rota's score to The Godfather will be performed June 25, as the movie is shown on two new video screens.

Haverford School's Lamar Stevens is showing his versatility this weekend while playing for Team Final in Nike's Elite Youth Basketball League (EYBL) at the Boo Williams Sportsplex in Hampton, Va. The 6-foot-7, 200-pound junior wing guard has scholarship offers from Indiana, La Salle, Rhode Island, St. Joseph's, Temple, and Villanova, among others. Next season, Stevens will likely be playing at Broad and Vine for already imposing Roman Catholic, fresh off winning Catholic League, District 12, and PIAA Class AAAA state championships.

The 76ers' summer plans largely revolve around the comeback of center Joel Embiid, who has missed the season as he recovers from right-foot surgery. Coach Brett Brown continues to say that Embiid is making progress, but he would not commit on whether Embiid will play in the summer leagues. Brown said Wednesday before the game against the Wizards that Nerlens Noel will not play in summer leagues. As for Embiid, he has begun playing only two-on-two. The next step? "Three-on-three," Brown said to laughter, although he really wasn't joking.

IT LOOKS as if 76ers fans will have to wait a while longer to see Nerlens Noel and Joel Embiid on the court together. No, Embiid hasn't suffered any type of setback from his recovering foot fracture. In fact, coach Brett Brown said before last night's game against the Washington Wizards that Embiid will start playing three-on-three and four-on-four within the next couple of weeks. The logical thought was that the two would pair at some point when the Sixers participate in two summer leagues this year in Utah and Las Vegas.
