After standing still for several wedding photos, Lisa Ley, 11, can't resist the lure of the mild, sunny weather. She was being playful with the help of a tree in the Azalea Garden near the Art Museum. The weather will be unseasonably warm for several more days. Today's high could reach the record of 73.

Gary Abraham and Davy Harwi work on a garden they've grown on what was a vacant lot in the 1600 block of Wallace Street. If nothing else it, the hibiscus seem to be benefitting from the seemingly unrelenting sun. Bet there's more on the way.

Our demands for democratic practices in other lands will be no more effective than the guarantees of those practiced in our own country. . . .There are those who say to you, "We are rushing this issue of human rights. " I say we are 172 years late. There are those who say, "This issue of civil rights is an infringement on states' rights. " The time has arrived for the Democratic Party to get out of the shadow of states' rights and walk forthrightly into the bright sunshine of human rights.

Hovering somewhere between soft-core porn and chick lit, Sunshine is really just a string of mindless clich?s. This long one-act launches New City Stage's season of three plays by William Mastrosimone - the next is his famous play Extremities, with the same actress, Ginger Dayle, in the lead; if Sunshine is anything to judge by, there are grim times ahead. Sunshine is the nickname of a peep-show worker, the woman behind the glass who does whatever the men on the other side of the glass want her to do - except leave the booth and actually have sex with them.

The early word on "Sunshine Cleaning" is that it's a derivative indie/quirky in the "Little Miss Sunshine" mode. It's produced by the same people, it's got the "Sunshine" brand right there in the title, and it's got Alan Arkin as the kooky grandpa. But it's not fair to dismiss Sunshine as a retread of "Little Miss Sunshine. " Because it's also a retread of the my-sister's-a-nightmare-in-black-eyeliner movie (see "Rachel Getting Married"). So it's every overhyped indie you've seen, and maybe didn't like, and yet it's often quite likable.

What do you get when you mix one part pain with an equal part of sunshine? Maybe - just maybe - you get some sanity in Philadelphia's city budget-making process. For years, Wilson Goode has pretended he is the best manager of any city in the country. He has implied that all he needed was a little more money and a little more time, and the city's problems would disappear. Well, those days are gone. In an almost unprecedented series of open meetings, the sun is finally shining on the full scope of the city's problems.

"He's my sunshine," are the heartfelt words Tyron's foster mother uses to describe his nature. "He's very loving and in tune with himself. "He can sit quietly, for long periods of time, drawing or reading," she continues, "or he'll be outside playing basketball, football, dodge ball, baseball and kickball. He plays hard and sleeps well. " Tyron, 10, has made a happy adjustment in this foster home after living in a number of other places. Despite neglect and deprivation in his background, he is progressing well emotionally with the help of a therapist.

On a cold-snap Saturday night in a crowded, airtight, windowless Boot & Saddle, Allo Darlin' brought some breeze and brightness. They couldn't help it. With three albums (including the just-released We Come From the Same Place ), the Anglo Australian quartet has experience at crafting sweetly sunny, smart pop with innocent yet contemplative lyrics whose hard jangle and flittering flights of funky fancy are reminiscent of Scotland's Orange Juice. But this band's chiming, charming vocals and effervescent, experiential lyrics come not from a wonky Scot but from Australian singer/ukulele player Elizabeth Morris, a fresh-faced, pixie-haired lass whose light, sharp alto is as open as her expression of glee - often in the lively embrace of sad-eyed bewilderment.

A group cynically calling itself All Votes Matter funded an effort to make sure all of Pennsylvania's votes would not matter in the 2012 presidential election. But because the group took advantage of the state's notoriously weak ethics laws, the source of the money remained obscure for years. Until recently, voters didn't know that the group financed lobbying to rig the state's electoral vote in favor of the Republican candidate. And they didn't know that it was bankrolled partly by the petrochemical billionaire Koch brothers, who have a business interest in tamping down environmental protections, to which Republicans have generally been more amenable than Democrats.

DAVID M. HARDY began work in September as chief academic support officer for the Philadelphia School District at an annual salary of $160,000. But the hire wasn't made public. That wasn't the first time. In the past year, the district frequently has flouted state law by failing to notify the public after hiring high-ranking personnel to lead departments in which decisions are made that affect students, families and staff. According to the state's Sunshine Act - and the district's own employment policies - a school district's hires and terminations, listed in personnel resolutions, must be voted on in public by a school board - or, in Philadelphia's case, the School Reform Commission - before the new hires are officially employed.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott and Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer joined Wawa Inc. bosses Howard Stoeckel and Chris Gheysens Wednesday for the opening of the Delaware County-based chain's first store in the Sunshine State, a quick-turnover smokes-and-Cokes, gas-and-hoagies outlet drawing homesick Philadelphia expatriates and curious natives to Orlando's Central Florida Parkway. Wawa says it will "penetrate" central Florida between now and late August with two more stores in Orlando and two in nearby Kissimmee, with later sites planned for the Tampa area.

Members of the Perkasie Borough Council violated the state Sunshine Act last month because of "an innocent mistake," a Bucks County grand jury concluded in a report released Thursday. The elected officials will not be held liable for the violation because they had been advised incorrectly by Borough Manager Daniel Olpere and Solicitor Nathan Fox, county District Attorney David Heckler said. "This was nothing but an innocent mistake," Heckler said, although "the solicitor and a manager as experienced as Mr. Olpere should have known better," Only elected officials can be penalized for violations, with fines of $100 to $1,000 per person for a first offense, Heckler said at a news conference in his Doylestown office.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Four weeks ago, Pennsylvania State University's board of trustees met hurriedly to fire longtime football coach Joe Paterno, accept president Graham B. Spanier's resignation, and name provost Rodney Erickson as the university's new president. But questions arose about whether the board had complied with the state's Sunshine Act, because there was no evidence of required public votes on the matters. So the executive committee - nine of the 32 board members - decided to hold a brief telephone conference call Friday morning to resolve questions and formally approve those three major decisions.
