    ST. LOUIS (AP) - Michael Brown's official autopsy indicates he was shot in the hand at close range during a struggle, but a medical examiner not involved in the investigation says there's no way to conclude whether the injury meant the unarmed 18-year-old was trying to grab the gun of the officer who killed him.

Central High School was going to hire teachers. Commodore John Barry School was contemplating the same. And Greenfield Elementary? More paper and pencils. Those plans are on hold now that a judge has halted the School Reform Commission’s decision this week. Before that happened, though, the SRC announced that the cancellation had…

  • Landlord: Jon Gosselin Abandoned a Kitten After I Evicted Him

    22 Oct 2014 | 1:05 pm
    Recently, Jon Gosselin was evicted from his Wernersville, Pennsylvania, home after bouncing rent checks. The owners say he was reneging on the rent-to-own contract he signed with them last December. Now, they’re talking even more. In an article tastefully titled “EXCLUSIVE: Jon Gosselin Hits Rock Bottom, Star magazine reports Gosselin not only left the house a dump after being evicted, but abandoned a tiny kitten there. Abandoning a kitten in your house? At least drop it off in a box somewhere. “We called Jon and asked him about the kitten, and he seemed unconcerned, saying it…
  • Five Real Philly Housewives We Want to See on Bravo

    22 Oct 2014 | 12:35 pm
    The strangest thing about “Real Housewives” — after the fact that we watch it, we watch it so hard — is that the franchise never set up shop here since debuting in 2006. For a show that lives and dies by its batshit quotient, you’d think they would have made Philadelphia home years ago. That, however, might be about to change: As the Daily News’ Jenice Armstrong reports, producer Princess Ann Banton-Lofters — creator of the series’ gold-standard Atlanta version — has been in town scouting, for lack of a better word, talent. Presumably, Bravo is poking around the Main…

    With the Pennsylvania governor’s race a complete snore — even the most optimistic Republican poll still gives Wolf a 7-point edge — we turn to New Jersey to see what’s up with Gov. Chris Christie. When we last left him he was arguing with a retired cop on the “Ask the Governor” radio show. Yesterday, at a fundraiser in Washington, Christie said he was tired of hearing about the minimum wage. “I gotta tell you the truth, I’m tired of hearing about the minimum wage. I really am,” Christie said during a keynote address at the U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal…
  • Good News, Sixers Fans: Draft Lottery Reform Voted Down

    Dan McQuade
    22 Oct 2014 | 10:43 am
    The NBA’s owners have voted down NBA draft lottery reform, Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski reports. Reform would have punished teams like the Sixers that have and will spend several seasons at the bottom of the NBA in order to get multiple shots at top players. Owners voted for the change, 17-13, but it needed 23 votes to pass. It’s a shocking vote, as draft lottery reform was expected to pass easily, with only the Sixers and Thunder opposed. Just yesterday the Sixers had “given up” attempting to prevent lottery reform from passing. There were several reform…

Add the office supply chain to the long list that includes Target and Home Depot and the question remains: why aren’t retailers doing more to protect our personal information?

The 19-year-old victim, who was 17 when she was forced into prostitution through threats and beatings with a gun to her head — literally, has told the court she has trust issues even with those closest to her: “But I can never even open up to them about my true self because of the negative stigma that comes with the nature of the crimes committed against me.

    By Jay Lloyd CAPE MAY, N.J. (CBS) — If you crave jazz and fall weekends at the Jersey shore, it all comes together on the weekend of November 7th. Better make reservations now, because the “Exit 0 (zero) Jazz Festival” has a tendency to fill up the city of Cape May beyond the migration that arrives for fall fests, wine tastings, and birding. John Cooke, who runs the popular Victorian Motel and blogs about his town, is a jazz buff who puffs about the number of stages making music on a single weekend. “The whole town comes to life with top quality acts,” he says. …

  • Another Painful Year For Philadelphia Eagles Fans

    26 Sep 2014 | 12:31 pm
    The Eagles finished last year’s season with a 10-6 record and part of that success was the fantastic play of quarterback Nick Foles. A third round pick in the 2012 Draft, Foles completed 64 percent of his passes, posted 9.1 YPA and an astounding 27 to 2 touchdown to interception ratio. It’s hard to imagine Foles repeating that kind of performance as the Eagles will have a tougher schedule this year. Plus, he’ll be a target for opposing defenses that  will have the entire offseason dissecting coach Chip Kelly’s offense.  Plus, he’ll have to play without…

The extension, which tweaks the final year of his previous deal, adds seven more with a dollar value of $132 million. Johnson may not be actually “worth” the money, but the Lions couldn’t afford not to lock him down for the long term.

    The Kansas City Royals were dealt their first postseason setback in Game 1 of the World Series, falling 7-1 to the Madison Bumgarner- and Hunter Pence-led San Francisco Giants at a boisterous Kauffman Stadium. The lopsided result wasn't what they had in mind, obviously, and it was a bit surprising given the unstoppable roll it appeared they were on coming in. The Royals, who are looking for their first world championship since 1985, set an MLB record by winning their first eight postseason games, including the AL wild-card game.

Sure, there’s the physical “universe” of the Mansion, the Bunnies, and the never-ending party that is Playboy, but there’s also something much deeper. Hefner has made a career out of the sort of images that you wouldn’t want your boss, girlfriend, mother, or fellow straphanger to catch you looking at, and yet, Hef still manages to come across as a gentleman at every turn. Of course, there is something slightly off about a nearly-ninety year old man that wears robes in public and is married…
