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.

As they say in show biz, timing is everything. But Delaware Theatre Company's timing, opening Arthur Miller's capitalist corruption drama All My Sons - amid the Occupy Wall Street protests, and the same week 20/20 aired an episode revealing the damage Bernie Madoff's crimes inflicted on his late son - is uncanny. Or maybe it's just that like so many of the themes in Miller's work, the more business changes, the more it stays the same. Most remarkable, perhaps, is the way director David Stradley presents the play's first-act American dream as though it were a diorama depicting life in another century, which, 64 years on, it is. Matthew Myhrum's set gets the details just right, from the backyard of a white clapboard house with green shutters and red brick foundation, to its crew-cut emerald lawn, and chain-link fence separating the neighbors.

If the pop-up of crocuses heralds spring, then the pop-up of beer gardens ushers in the summer season. Temporary outdoor restaurants, many using off-premises catering permits, have been all the rage in Philadelphia for the last several years during the warm weather, providing a social outlet for patrons and new revenue streams for savvy restaurateurs and the Pennsylvania Horticulture Society. The PHS, which launched the pop-up era in 2013 by opening a garden in a vacant lot on South Broad Street, this year again will headline two locations - on South Street near 15th (its third year)

THIS KIND of behavior could get a guy killed in New Jersey. NBC News reports that Claudio Bevilacqua , a paramedic who was called to aid James Gandolfini after The Sopranos' star suffered a fatal heart attack in 2013, went on trial Monday in Rome for allegedly snatching the $3,000 Rolex Submariner off the actor's cold, dead wrist. Talk about cold. He could be Tony Soprano's mother. However, it is possible that the watch vanished before the actor collapsed. Possibly from his hotel room.

Carson Wentz became the Eagles' biggest name before taking his first NFL snap - or even practicing with his new teammates. The first snap must wait, but the first full-team practice comes Tuesday. The quarterback completed rookie minicamp over the weekend, a setting in which he clearly had the biggest presence. But when the Eagles begin their first organized team activity Tuesday, Wentz will be joined by teammates with years of experience who know him only as the rookie the team surrendered five draft picks to acquire.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: How much time apart should a couple who live together have per week? I'm trying to gauge the healthy amount of togetherness and quality time as opposed to time apart with friends, family, and weekend overnights away from each other. Answer: Some people don't need any, and some can barely live with another person. There's no "should" here. At least, there isn't with respect to an amount of time. There's a towering "should" when it comes to listening to each other's needs, respecting them, and (this is huge)

HARRISBURG - After being pushed for years by advocates, legislation to require some first-time drunk drivers in Pennsylvania to use ignition-interlock devices is inching toward becoming law. The House on Monday voted, 193-2, to approve a bill that would force the use of ignition interlocks by first-time offenders whose blood-alcohol concentration was at least 0.10 percent. After returning to the Senate, which unanimously approved an earlier version, the bill would head to Gov. Wolf, who supports it, according to a spokesman.

Last summer, long after the 2015 Phillies were forgotten, they went 21-14 in a 35-game stretch. The team had a new manager, and various trades remade the roster, but it mattered little. No one could point at the standings. The tangible proof that the organization was headed in the right direction was harder to pinpoint. We remember what happens first, and we remember what happens last. The 2016 Phillies went 20-15 in their first 35 games, and new general manager Matt Klentak watched like any invested person would.
