When people think about helping the hungry at holiday time, they're picturing Thanksgiving or Christmas - not the Fourth of July. Few do-gooders donate turkeys in 90-degree weather. But, experts say, this is the hungriest time of the year for low-income families whose children are out of school and often are not eating breakfast or lunch. That's why Vanessa Poe has been feeding kids this summer at the Lee Taliaferro Library in Darby Township. "Without these meals, I really don't know what they'd be eating," said Poe, 59, a local caterer and trained social worker who volunteers both as director of the library and head of a community feeding program for children.

It's summertime, and the living is steamy. To beat the heat, 5-year-old Danny Jaconelli of Cherry Hill sprang into the pool at the Erlton Swim Club. Weekend weather should remain warm and humid.

For many, the Memorial Day weekend marks the start of a season of summertime celebrations and leisurely indulgences. On Sunday, the Vietnam Veterans of America, Chapter 590, interrupted their weekend festivities to remember the holiday's somber purpose: to honor those who have sacrificed their lives for their country. The veterans gathered in Fort Washington State Park in Whitemarsh Township in a daylong event to remember the war dead, especially Maj. Gen. William Gallagher, former assistant adjutant of the State National Guard, and Master Sgt. Daniel Lockwood, a medic who served from 1969 to 1970.

Chris Mullin admits his life had become "unmanageable because of alcohol. " "I was late all the time," Mullin, the Golden State Warriors' third-year guard, said in yesterday's New York Daily News. Mullin said he made numerous excuses for his lateness, adding, "That . . . wasn't me. " Mullin was released yesterday from alcoholic rehabilitation at the LifeStarts chemical-dependency program in Inglewood, Calif., where he had been a patient since Dec. 13. "This was the hardest thing I ever had to do in my life, but it was the best thing I ever did in my life," Mullin said.

SUMMERTIME. Used to be, the eatin' out was easy - especially for Philadelphians seeking a hot table on a hot Saturday night. A decade ago, even Center City's most popular places, from little epicurean Vetri to big trendy Buddakan, had empty seats on a Saturday night in July or August. As Jeff Benjamin, who helped open Vetri on Spruce Street in 1998, remembers, the city's summertime turn-of-this-century restaurant business was "just nonexistent. " (Translation: No business is bad business.)

Hey, Mom, here's a great summertime detective show you and your husband can share. And if you haven't got a husband, a nice glass of wine might do, as you watch another single mother struggle with jobs and kids in an entertaining if unrealistic way. You're sure to love it when her older son (he's maybe in fifth grade) asks, "Do you ever sleep?" Not surprisingly, The Protector is on Lifetime, "the source for women's entertainment," premiering at 10 p.m. Sunday after the season finale of the network's popular Army Wives . It's not real clear who Ally Walker's Gloria Sheppard is protecting in her job as a Los Angeles homicide detective, since she turns up after people are dead.

If you love Cape May in the summer, chances are you'll love it in the winter as well. For me, it's a wonderful place to walk, the ocean on one side of you, the hushed and shuttered shops on the other. Cape May's promenade beside the sea (no boards here) is just long enough to provide a workout that merits a guilt-free reward of hot chocolate. And, unlike summertime strolls, you're not distracted by the frenetic buzz of human activity. I love the fact that there will probably be no one else at Sunset Beach, so you can have your pick of the best Cape May "diamonds," those polished quartz pebbles.

MAYBE WE can put this angry summer behind us. We have the Taney Dragons. We also have a shirtless Will Smith riding the pony as he sang "Jump on It" in Las Vegas. TMZ.com reports that Will showed up unannounced at the Palms on Friday to support his son Trey , who was DJing with some Philly fella named Jazzy Jeff . Only because it's Will and Jazzy Jeff and because this summer needs some "Summertime," the link is: ph.ly/WillSmith. * Now that we're getting our happiness groove back, let's keep it going: On Oct. 27 comes the new Taylor Swift album.

The number in Michael Dausch's head is 66 - that's how many work days separate graduation at the University of Pennsylvania and the arrival of students for the fall semester. "We count it down," said Dausch, executive director of design and construction management at Penn. And with good reason. When 25,000 Penn students head home for the summer, Dausch's department goes into hyper-blitz. This summer - a typical one - 40 projects with a price tag of $60 million are underway at Penn, the city's largest private employer.

The start of summer has not been good to the Flyers. Their captain, Claude Giroux, spent a night in jail last week after a bizarre incident in an Ottawa bar. Their new general manager, Ron Hextall, was hamstrung by the team's salary-cap situation and could not join the free-agent frenzy. And while the Flyers were signing spare parts - some for depth, some for their AHL affiliate - most of their Metropolitan Division opponents made improvements. So where will the Flyers stand when the season starts?

SORRY. You still can't take a conventional TV to the beach or back yard. Nor electronic tablets - unless they're monochrome, E ink screened Kindles and Nooks - due to LCD screen washout. Still, lots of other transportable and water-resistant creature comforts could help lure us gizmo guys out of the shadows and into the sun this spring and summer. SOLAR FLARE: Not recommending you create a public nuisance. But the eight-speaker, Bluetooth-signal blasting Eton Rukus XL makes a great beach blanket and back yard buddy.

CSAs, short for community supported agriculture, help farmers finance their growing expenses while offering participants great, fresh produce at peak season. Inna Spivakova and her boyfriend, Dan Manders, have been members of the Greensgrow CSA for three years now. They chose it because, while Greensgrow is an urban farm in Kensington, the CSA, started in 2002, is stocked by area farmers (more than 50 within 150 miles, according to its website). They also liked the option of getting a half share every other week, instead of weekly.

WASHINGTON - A dramatic tax-raising deal last New Year's looked like it might be a breakthrough, signaling improved second-term relations between newly reelected President Obama and a divided Congress. At least that's what the White House hoped. But six months later, growing uncertainty over a sweeping immigration overhaul has dimmed expectations for a big summertime achievement and left Obama still in search of a marquee legislative accomplishment to mark his second four years. His advisers now concede that their best shot at changing the immigration system might come in the fall, after lawmakers return from their August recess.

July 13, 2013 | By late morning in New York, benchmark crude for August delivery was up 52 cents to $105.43 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Even with a drop of $1.60 a barrel Thursday, the price of oil is still up about 9 percent this month., ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK - The price of oil rose back above $105 Friday. Gasoline prices jumped the most since mid-February, unwelcome news for summertime drivers. Drivers are seeing the impact. The average price for a gallon of gas in the U.S. rose 3 cents to $3.55 a gallon, the biggest one-day increase since Feb. 16, according to AAA. Prices rose 10 cents in both Indiana and Michigan. The average price has gained 8 cents since Monday, reversing what had been a steady decline since the middle of June.
