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.

Nathan Benefield is vice president of policy for the Commonwealth Foundation Conservatives loathe government handouts. Liberals denounce special favors to corporations. One thing can unify these two sides: ending Pennsylvania's budget-busting corporate-welfare handouts. Every year, state government gives millions in taxpayer dollars to favored businesses under the guise of "economic development. " In reality, these giveaways represent political development, enriching special interests and their well-connected lobbyists.

By Sally Friedman The message was delivered by email, as so many things that affect our lives arrive these days. No envelope as a buffer zone. It was from our synagogue in Cherry Hill. And like its delivery, its message was direct. The synagogue was advising members of increased security measures at this house of worship, this presumed sanctuary from the travails of the outside world. Seems that in this beleaguered time, even access to our synagogues is changing. I guess I shouldn't be surprised - but I am. And sad, too. In this Passover season, when Jews are asked to remember being slaves in Egypt, one has to wonder how free we Jews are. And on the surface, we live freely and move freely, presumably in peace and safety.

In mid-March, Kevin Lacon's place of refuge was suddenly infiltrated by dread. The La Salle High senior watched as his older brother, Patrick, an assistant coach for the Explorers, walked with purpose toward head coach Bill Leahy during a scrimmage against Upper Dublin. "When Coach Leahy said, 'Kevin,' I looked over, and I knew for some reason it was my dad, and my heart dropped," said Lacon, whose brother, Liam, is also a sophomore defenseman for the Explorers.

DEAR ABBY: My husband, "Ed," and I are in our 40s. We both work, and Ed often puts in more than 60 hours a week. My in-laws, in their 60s, are both in good health, retired, and well-off financially. They expect weekly gatherings unless they have other plans. In warmer weather, my mother-in-law guilt-trips Ed into performing weekly chores such as painting, gardening, window washing, etc. These take more than six hours on Sundays, in addition to dinner. My in-laws also insist on yearly family vacations.

THE DAILY NEWS Pet of the Week is Max, a 1-year-old male brindle pit-bull mix at the Pennsylvania SPCA. Although shy at first, Max warms up quickly, wagging his tail and become more and more social. With time, Max will likely open up and become comfortable, since his demeanor is even happier in the presence of other dogs. Max is a sweet, yet tentative dog, who likes bones and treats, and would do best in a house with tweens and up. Call the PSPCA at 215-426-6300; stop by the shelter at Erie Avenue near B Street, North Philadelphia, or visit pspca.org.
