Sean Cassel can't bring himself to say that word. Even though his Seneca baseball team returned just one starter and a pitching staff that had logged all of four varsity innings entering the season, Cassel won't concede that this is a rebuilding year. Maybe this attitude explains how in a very short time, Seneca has launched itself into elite South Jersey baseball circles. The first varsity team competed in 2005. By 2007, the Golden Eagles had won the state Group 3 championship.

BOSTON - Before this season started, "evaluate" was the word used most frequently by Sixers president Rod Thorn and coach Doug Collins. While both were hoping for many wins and the positives they bring an organization, they were also looking to the future, and determining which players would fit into their plans. After winning 18 of the first 25 games, the questions of what had to be done to improve this team during the offseason were swept under the rug for the most part.

It would be easy to dismiss the smartly dressed woman sitting behind home plate in Game 1 of the National League Championship Series as disinterested. Wearing a red jacket and faux fur scarf, this woman put on her reading glasses and perused the November issue of Elle Decorating magazine during the early innings. She didn't even stand to watch a game-tying home run by Phillies catcher Carlos Ruiz, didn't scream out "Chooch" with the rest of the crowd as it rose around her. She never saw the blast reach the seats.

Like the neighborhood around it, the Lincoln apartment building at Locust and Camac Streets has had its share of ups and downs. Designed by the renowned Philadelphia architectural firm Furness, Evans & Co. and built in 1892 as a residential hotel, it was once considered the place to live in the neighborhood. By the 1960s, the building catered to a less moneyed clientele: As the Seamen's Church Institute, it provided temporary lodgings to thousands of men a year. But in the late 1980s, the Lincoln was revitalized during the redevelopment of the Washington Square West area.

When James McBride decided to take on a book project about James Brown, the author of the 1995 best-seller The Color of Water: A Black Man's Tribute to His White Mother was well aware his wouldn't be the first attempt to get up and get down on the subject of the Godfather of Soul. By his count, there were "fourteen books on James Brown already on the deck," he writes in Kill 'Em and Leave: Searching for James Brown and the American Soul (Spiegel & Grau, $28), his first-person exploration of the South Carolina-born life force known as "Soul Brother Number One," from which he will read Tuesday at the Central Library in Philadelphia.

BACK WHEN they were finishing in first or second perennially during the Lindros era, the Flyers would often drive their fans crazy by dropping games against second-division clubs. Those teams would treat the game as a barometer to their progress or potential. The Flyers would see it not necessarily as a night off, but one that did not require maximum effort. Sometimes they were wrong, leaving the false impression that something was lacking in their mettle. More often, they were right, although sometimes not without a frantic finish.

AS MUCH as I don't want to accept that time goes this fast, we are already in December, which means another year (give or take) has come and gone in the local theater universe. So, it's time for a look back at what has occurred since the Mummers last strutted up (oops, I mean down ) Broad Street: New Life for Roberts Theatre In 2014, things looked as bleak as a Samuel Beckett play for the Suzanne Roberts Theatre - home to Philadelphia Theatre Company - when news broke that the then-seven-year-old venue, at Broad and Lombard streets, was in foreclosure.

More than 5,000 arts and cultural organizations from 11 metropolitan regions spend about $13 billion annually, are staffed by 900,000-plus employees and volunteers, and serve a combined population of about 75 million people. Yet despite those big numbers, and despite overall revenue gains of 7 percent from 2009 to 2012, attendance gains of about 3 percent, and earned income gains of more than 25 percent, nearly half the organizations (42 percent) reported deficits in 2012, the most recent year analyzed, with 18.7 percent of the deficits greater than 10 percent.

Six games into the regular season, the Eagles offense has settled into a pattern in which it is equally encouraging and frustrating, not just within the same game, but often within the same drive. Too many times, the running game still goes nowhere, with the backs strung out to the sideline looking for holes that never appear. And then suddenly, as he did with a third-quarter touchdown run on Monday night, DeMarco Murray will burst past defenders and turn that nothing into something.

The first time, Matt Szczur said, it kind of catches you off guard. You make the big leagues out of spring training, but April is barely half over when you're called into the manager's office. The general manager is in there, too, they're telling you that they want you to get regular at-bats, that they're real happy with you, but that you're going back to triple A. It's not a shock anymore. Szczur, the former Villanova football all-American and baseball star from Lower Cape May High School, now 26 years old, has shuttled between the Chicago Cubs and their top farm club 10 times this season.

READING - He took a serious step back during a 2014 season that went awry after he suffered a concussion, but Jesse Biddle is attempting to pitch his way back into the Phillies' future. This is the sixth minor-league season and the third at double-A Reading for Biddle, the Phillies' first-round draft pick in 2010 out of Germantown Friends School. Once considered the franchise's top pitching prospect, Biddle has been far from dominating this season. Still, he is getting the ball every fifth day and will look at his most recent start as a step in the right direction.

BOONE, Iowa - First they rode hogs. Then, they ate them. Freshman Sen. Joni Ernst, a Republican, drew seven presidential candidates and about 1,000 activists to her inaugural "Roast and Ride," the latest entrant in Iowa's long history of food-centric retail political events. "Live to ride and ride to live!" Ernst, stoked on a Monster energy drink, said. Revving her 2009 Harley-Davidson Softail, Ernst led Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and 300 other riders from a dealership in Des Moines on a 39-mile cruise to the exposition grounds here, site of the August Iowa Straw Poll.

CASTRIES, St. Lucia - I'm not even halfway up Gros Piton, the taller of St. Lucia's signature twin peaks, and I'm already starting to perspire from places where I didn't even know I had pores. My shins. My elbows. My earlobes. It's an inauspicious start to what I've dubbed my "Surf and Turf" tour of St. Lucia, a lush isle in the West Indies' Lesser Antilles. Over the course of a week, I plan to scale the 2,619-foot summit of Gros Piton, scuba dive along the coral reefs, and ride horseback through the surf.
