What Is Early Word?
The Philadelphia Inquirer's experimental online "morning show", which began in Sept. 2005, went on hiatus in the summer of 2006, after a gradual shift to putting more of its content directly on Philly.com.

Peter Mucha, husband and father of two, grew up in Cherry Hill and is a lifelong Philly sports fan. He's been writing and editing for The Inquirer for 18 years. His motto (at least for today): "If I'm not brief, give me grief."

Morning News
Jewelry Heist at Willow Grove Park Mall
A break-in late last night is being investigated by Abington detectives and the FBI, township police have confirmed. At least six individuals took part in the burglary of the Zale's Jewelry Store, prying open cases to swipe rings, watches and other jewelry items. A battery-powered saw of some sort was used to get through a locked security gate. Painters noticed two black males acting suspiciously near Zales around 10:15 p.m., police said. At 10:18 a circuit breaker was tripped, putting the store's video surveillance out of commission. People were seen running to a dark SUV and speeding away.

The operation could be related to other mall burglaries, including one at Whitehall Jewelers in the same mall in January, investigators said. Earlier this month, thieves made off with $250,000 worth of jewelry from two stores in the Salisbury Township South Mall near Allentown. In that case, the robbers pried open glass cases and quickly loaded watches, bracelets, pendants, chains and other items into duffle bags as alarms were sounding. But they were gone before police could respond, according to the Allentown Morning Call.
