A Montgomery County Common Pleas Court jury yesterday convicted Alvin Lester "Buddy" Bowers on three criminal charges related to the operation of a now-defunct tour bus company, but was unable to decide whether Bowers actually intended to steal money from his customers.

Rapper Nelly had some 'splainin' to do Friday. First of all, realize! You do not drive anywhere near the Sierra Blanca border patrol down in Texas. Police there will jack you up if their superschnozz dogs detect a whiff of contraband. Fiona Apple got done there last month, and Willie Nelson , Armie Hammer , and Snoop Dogg all have experienced this fine service. When the zealous fuzz inspected Nelly's tour bus, they found - whoa! - 36 small bags of heroin, 10 pounds of pot, and a .45 pistol.

G OV. CORBETT has been in office for just 10 weeks and, like many politicians who inherit a financial mess, he likes to blame the man he replaced. It's fair game: Gov. Ed Rendell was the top guy in the state for eight years, while the deficit grew to troubling proportions. But Corbett yesterday took what looks like a cheap shot - $66,462 in savings! - when you consider that the state's proposed budget is $27.3 billion. Corbett's staff emailed reporters to announce that the "defunct tour bus," known as "Commonwealth One" when Rendell took office, will be auctioned off in May or June.

PARIS - There's no such thing as a casual stroll through the streets of Paris with former Philly girl Karen Reb Rudel. Rudel, 45, is the proprietor of Sight Seeker's Delight, a company offering walking tours of Paris with a theatrical flair. She passes a brick building in her old neighborhood, Butte-aux-Cailles, renowned for its examples of art nouveau design, and explains that it holds three swimming pools fed by a thermal spring. A fountain across the street in Place Paul Verlaine, with graceful, arced silver spigots, is fed by the same spring and, she says, the water that runs beneath this part of the city is said to hold rejuvenating qualities.

Eddie Berner's tour bus was running late. Inside Durand Academy and Community Services headquarters in Mount Laurel, administrators milled about, waiting to meet their new fund-raising partner. They were happy to wait: Durand, which provides housing, schooling, and support services to people with autism in South Jersey, had never been visited by a rock star before. Fifteen minutes after Berner's publicist said his tour bus would arrive, a black RV, its sides plastered with red vinyl flames, squealed into the lot outside the headquarters on Gaither Drive.

Note: Yesterday's planned visit to Philly was cancelled because of tour bus troubles. They should never have let the Siamese drive.

The material in Kevin Hart's latest stand-up film, Let Me Explain , is riotous enough to stand with the comedian's career-making cable showcases, I'm a Grown Little Man and Seriously Funny . If you were to judge Let Me Explain purely on its performance portion, filmed at Madison Square Garden during Hart's 2012 tour, the film...

DILLSBURG, Pa. - Considering the circumstances, the first thought expressed by Mike Lyons was rather predictable. "It really stinks," he said, "to lose like that in your last game as a high school player. " OK, so he actually said another "s" word instead of stinks, but he'd appreciate a free pass for potty-mouthing in light of Prep Charter's 13-4 loss to Delone Catholic, at Northern York High, in the first round of the PIAA Class AA baseball playoffs. Plus, the negative vibrations lasted only an instant.
