With family values a big issue in this year's presidential election, Unity Day, the centerpiece for Unity Weekend, seems especially timely. An annual event whose aim is to bring all Philadelphians together, this year's Unity Day is set for next Sunday on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. The day's activities will mix the serious with the silly. Besides local organizations displaying family-related information at dozens of booths, there'll be live music, myriad munchies and more.

Mayor Rendell told a packed house of the Southern New Jersey Chamber of Commerce that the two sides of the Delaware River would succeed or fail together. He said a joint waterfront project, a planned tramway connecting the sides for tourists, and the Republican National Convention were proof of the inextricable economic relationship and signs of a positive future. "We are one region, and we all know that," he said during his 20 minutes as keynote speaker for the chamber's Pinnacle Awards Dinner at the Hilton of Cherry Hill.

Valentine's Day. Candlelit dinner. Champagne. Soft music. . . . Followed by a sweaty, steamy - 5-mile run? The Valentine's Day Couples run, in New Castle, Del., is for couples who want to bond while pounding the pavement. Held on Feb. 12, the 5-Miler is something of a relay race: Each couple splits the race distance, with the man running the first 2 1/2 miles and the woman finishing up. But singles need not despair: The race is also open to singles as a straight 5-mile run. (Or meet someone there: You may end up a couple by the finish line.

When the Philadelphia Public Relations Association honors Frank G. Binswanger, the realtor, with its coveted Gold Medal Award at a luncheon on Tuesday, it will honor a Philadelphia family that is steeped in a romantic sort of togetherness as remarkable as it is rare. The medal is awarded annually to a Philadelphian whose service to the community has enhanced the image of the city. And, God knows, few can stack up to Frank Binswanger in that category. Frank Binswanger loves Philadelphia the way an adolescent loves his first girl.

Winners by the numbers are celebrating their lucky $13 million pick in the Pennsylvania Lottery's Super 7 game, which carried a record $26 million jackpot. The group effort at Benjamin Franklin Elementary School, Rising Sun and Cheltenham Avenues in Lawncrest, included 29 teachers, secretaries, noontime aides, custodians and the principal and netted them after-tax payments of $13,818 for the next 26 years. While none of them will be financially set to retire early, they all are quick to admit that the winnings will sweeten the load.

Maybe that paintball outing from the previous day helped the 76ers last night against the Memphis Grizzlies. Maybe they can use their 89-86 overtime victory as a turning point in their season. Oops. That's what the Sixers said last week, when they prevailed in triple overtime against the Boston Celtics. They followed that dramatic win with two of their more putrid performances of the season and figured Thursday's paintball party would bring them together. Perhaps the Sixers were more together last night as they gave one of their best defensive efforts of the season.

DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend and I have been together for six years. We finally moved in together a year ago. Things have been going pretty well, with the exception of an unusual habit of his that has become more evident since living together. He spends anywhere from 45 minutes to two hours in the bathroom every day. A couple of times he has even fallen asleep in there. He takes his computer in the bathroom because he claims he gets a lot of work done. Some days I barely get to see him because he works late and then spends the rest of the day you-know-where.

SURF CITY, N.J. - What happens when you tell a poet to write a poem from a painting, and an artist to paint from a poem? Will the interpretive work be more or less interesting than the poet's original poem? Will the painting created from a poetic prompt be more provocative than the painting created from the artist's own muses? Will the random pairing of poets and painters be inspired? Or forced? Like a cooking show where the ingredients are given to the chefs, or maybe an artistic version of "Who Wore It Best," the third annual Painted Poetry exhibit packs impressively expansive questions about the creative process, about inspirations, about the idea of interpretation, about whether art can be enhanced by words and vice versa, into a show squeezed into a meeting room of the Long Beach Island branch of the Ocean County Library.

Both Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders tapped a strong current of dissatisfaction with the two-party system that has long dominated American politics. While making surprisingly strong showings in primaries and caucuses, they made legitimate complaints about the convoluted process used to pick presidential nominees. The process is mystifying thanks to arcane rules that favor more traditional party candidates. In many states, primaries give voters some degree of say in the process. But many primaries, including Pennsylvania's, are closed to independents, even though their tax dollars help subsidize the two major parties' way of choosing candidates.

Question: I'm a guy in my 40s, married with three kids. My best friend/college buddy married a few years back, had his first kid a year ago. We're practically brothers. Talk all the time. But due to family obligations, we don't get together much. His wife shows zero interest in having a relationship with my family despite my being a longtime friend of her husband's. When I try to arrange something, they're always "busy" or we live "too far" (30 miles away). Yet his wife will drag him and his daughter to all sorts of events and get-togethers - with her friends.

Hillary Clinton offered a confident vision Thursday night of a nation "stronger together" and capable of overcoming the forces of division to build a future with greater opportunity for all Americans despite pressing problems. "Bonds of trust and respect are fraying," Clinton said as she formally accepted the Democratic nomination for president. "It truly is up to us: We have to decide whether we're going to work together so we can all rise together. " For Clinton, who made history as the first woman nominated by a major political party in the United States, the speech represented a high-profile chance to forge an emotional connection with the public, something she has by her own admission struggled to do in a long political career.

Excerpts from Donald Trump's address as prepared for delivery Thursday night: Friends, delegates and fellow Americans: I humbly and gratefully accept your nomination for the presidency of the United States. Together, we will lead our party back to the White House, and we will lead our country back to safety, prosperity, and peace. We will be a country of generosity and warmth. But we will also be a country of law and order. . . . Decades of progress made in bringing down crime are now being reversed by this Administration's rollback of criminal enforcement.

I'M THINKING Donald Trump ought to tap one Newton Leroy "Newt" Gingrich as his running mate. You think it's a bad idea, huh? You think pompous Newt's too much like The Donald. Or has hair too much like The Donald's? Or makes The Donald (by contrast) sound like a know-nothing? You think such a ticket's too tabloid: "Double-Barrel Bombast," "I'm with Stupid," "Hair today, gone tomorrow?" Or, for family-values folks, "Six Wives Great Adventure. " Well, you probably also thought it was a bad idea for Trump to glide down that escalator and glibly kick off his campaign by calling immigrant Mexicans "rapists.

If your humble narrator were a bratty 9-year-old, he would perhaps look at the onetime tween sensations Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas' "Future Now" tour and annoyingly tease, "Demi and Nick, sitting in a tree, k-i-s-s-i-n-g. ... " That is, if it weren't for the fact that the talented vocal twosome - along with sharing stages such as Camden's BB&T Pavilion on July 14 - are old friends partnering on a new label, Safehouse (an imprint of Island Records), and furthering their own adult careers in several ways.

Michael Gira has been making gorgeously abrasive music as Swans on and off since 1982, when he was part of New York City's No Wave scene. The brooding singer/composer took a long Swans hiatus after 1996's cinematic Soundtracks for the Blind to start the shimmering, acoustic Angels of Light ensemble. He then shuttered Light and combined the dark Swans' and more sun-dappled Angels' sounds for 2010's My Father Will Guide Me Up a Rope to the Sky and the rebirth of Swans 2.0. Now it's time for another change.
