WHEN IS IT appropriate to publish a photograph of five Philadelphia police officers standing under a sign that reads "Donut Making" (May 23)? I'm not certain the answer is always so simple. But ask yourself the same question barely two weeks after Officer Gary Skerski is killed in the line of duty? Precisely. I hope the newsroom had a hardy laugh at its seminal wit.

Motorists have complained to Upper Darby officials about traffic backups because the state Department of Transportation is changing timing devices as it replaces traffic lights in the township. Councilman Mario J. Civera Jr. asked the other council members at Wednesday's meeting to help prepare a list of trouble spots in their districts before a meeting is scheduled between PennDOT officials and the township to discuss synchronizing the new timing devices. Civera said after the meeting that some of the new devices weren't allowing pedestrians enough time to cross streets.

HARRISBURG - Democrats are decrying the timing of a donor's $25,000 check to the state Republican party on the eve of his son's confirmation as a Corbett administration cabinet secretary. Philanthropist Ronald Krancer said Wednesday that there was "absolutely no connection whatsoever" between his latest donation to the state GOP and the appointment and state Senate confirmation of his son, Michael Krancer of Bryn Mawr, as Gov. Corbett's environment secretary. The date of the donation was reported by the state Republican Committee as April 25. The next day, the Senate unanimously confirmed Michael Krancer to head the state Department of Environmental Protection (DEP)

I'M WRITING in response to your section "Philadelphia Vietnam Veterans Memorial - a 20th Anniversary Salute," which you published on Tuesday, Oct. 30. It would have been better served had you published it on the actual day of the anniversary, Oct. 26. Maybe then more people would have attended the ceremonies that took place at the memorial on Saturday, Oct. 27. Even though it poured for most of the morning and early afternoon, we did have...

The clever set (by Jorge Cousineau) is a gigantic old-fashioned composition book, with the play's title, The Four of Us, and the playwright's name, Itamar Moses, scrawled on its cover. Each page holds the setting for a scene; a stagehand comes out and turns the pages. This turns out to be more significant that we know: 1812 Production's East Coast premiere is not only funny and moving, it's surprising. Moses is a young playwright who already has established a reputation as a smarty-pants with Outrage and Bach at Leipzig.

Norman Braman wanted out of the National Football League for a lot of reasons. He was tired of all those plane rides between Miami and Philadelphia. He would rather spend his autumn Sundays at home with a wife who loves him rather than in a stadium with 65,000 people who despise him. He had grown weary of clanging heads with NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue and many of the league's owners. But most importantly, Braman wanted out because he found a guy who was crazy enough to give him $185 million to get out. The timing definitely was right.

A young catcher with the Milwaukee Braves, Joe Torre was in his first full season in the big leagues in 1961 when a veteran lefthander, now in the Hall of Fame, boiled down the art of pitching to him in one sentence. "I was able to catch a guy like Warren Spahn," the Los Angeles Dodgers' manager said yesterday. "And he taught me a long time ago that hitting is timing and the pitcher's job is to upset that timing. I think Cliff Lee is that type of guy. " The timing for Lee to take the mound couldn't be better for the Phillies, who must overcome Friday's potentially deflating 2-1 loss to the Dodgers if they are to take the lead in the National League Championship Series with a win tonight in Game 3 at Citizens Bank Park.

Perfect timing for Rodriguez A week ago, Edwin Rodriguez was the manager in triple-A New Orleans. Now he's the first Puerto Rican to manage in the majors, taking over on an interim basis in Florida when Fredi Gonzalez was fired. Barring an unexpected change in plans, Rodriguez will lead the Marlins in his homeland during a three-game series that starts Monday against the New York Mets in San Juan. Gonzalez joked that he expects about 150 long-lost relatives to contact him, looking for tickets.

Changes in the annual Mummers Parade were made to correct the timing and the flow, but there's a price to be paid. The comics, fancies, string bands and fancy brigades are the heart of this great tradition. But to save time, the comics no longer parade in the heart of South Broad, and now start at Broad and Washington. The fancies are starting north of Snyder. The string bands also will give up certain stops where they performed for the reasons of timing. The fancy brigades parade from Oregon to Washington, and then board buses to take them to the Convention Center for their noon performance.

A group of Italian American leaders met with members of the Inquirer staff yesterday to protest the publication of a front-page article about the Mafia on the same day as the Columbus Day parade. Robert A. Messa, state president of the Pennsylvania chapter of the Order Sons of Italy in America, said he and the others at the meeting had no quarrel with the contents of the Oct. 9 story. "We don't challenge the First Amendment. We honor it. We do not challenge the article," Messa said.

At age 16, Donyea Phillips hit rock bottom in segregated housing at Philadelphia Industrial Correctional Center, with a bed sheet for a noose. "As my fingers and toes started going numb, I remembered Sarah," he said. That's Sarah Morris, who runs arts workshops for children in the city's adult jails: She was the only person he could recall encouraging him. "She told me I was good at writing poems. At the last minute, I remembered that. When I got a sheet around my neck, she saved my life.

A door opened in Cincinnati earlier this season that created a window for the Phillies next season. In case you missed it, the Reds, with a blessing from Major League Baseball that had been absent for more than a quarter of a century, inducted Pete Rose into their Hall of Fame in late June. It was the right thing for commissioner Rob Manfred to do and the logical next step for the Phillies is to use the previously blocked opportunity to put Rose into their equivalent of the Reds Hall of Fame.

As a Philadelphia firefighter, Steven Mesete often is required to spring into action at a moment's notice, abruptly sending his heart into rat-a-tat mode. "You can be sitting still, and then running at 100 miles an hour," he said. One day last week, Mesete ramped up his cardiovascular system in a much more controlled fashion, walking on a treadmill with wires stuck to his chest and a cardiologist standing nearby. The 41-year-old firefighter with Engine 49 in South Philadelphia was among the first in the 2,200-member department to undergo what is now a mandatory physical exam every two years.

Dan White is a senior economist at Moody's Analytics in West Chester and an adviser on pensions to the National League of Cities In the back-and-forth drama of Pennsylvania's budget woes, nothing has been more ever-present than pension reform. The compromises involved in true reform have put the concept out of reach for several years, but now the legislature and Gov. Wolf have put an ambitious emphasis on reform for the fall. This is laudable, long overdue, and essential for getting us back on a more sustainable budget track.

Water, weed, and mulch. Weeds are competition for available soil moisture and nutrients, and they come out a lot easier after rain or watering. Get rid of them, and then cover the naked soil with mulch to keep moisture in and new weed seeds from sprouting. If weeds have already gone to seed, don't put them in the compost bin, or you'll have three more generations of weeds growing out of it. Revel in tomatoes. This is certainly the week for it. This is the time of year when I eat nothing but toasted tomato and cheese sandwiches for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

DEAR ABBY: I have been divorced for a year and have two boys, ages 8 and 9. During this time, my ex-husband has introduced three different women to my children and recently introduced them to a new girlfriend he has been seeing for a few weeks. The first day they met the girlfriend, he had the children spend the night at her place. The woman has a 9-year-old son I do not find this appropriate. When I confronted my ex, he insisted that there was no problem with it. How long do you recommend someone wait before introducing children to the person he/she is dating?

Want to irritate members of Philadelphia City Council? Mention their current 12-week summer recess. They tend to quickly push back, claiming Council is a full-time job. But as the news swirling around Council Majority Leader Bobby Henon made clear Friday, some Council members still find time for a second job to supplement their six-figure city salaries. FBI and IRS agents on Friday raided Henon's City Hall and district offices as part of a larger sweep for documents from Local 98 of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and union boss John Dougherty.
