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.

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.
