Sifting through the charred and soggy remains of an early-morning church fire, members of Iglesia Ni Cristo wondered yesterday where to turn for temporary spiritual shelter for their 250-member community. Perhaps even more pressing was another question: Was this the latest in a series of racially motivated attacks on the nondenominational church's ethnically and racially mixed congregation? Township fire department officials - aware of fresh spray paint found on the church's glass doors - said arson had not been ruled out, and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms has been called in. Much of the church building was gutted in the two-alarm blaze, which officials said began about 1:20 a.m. and was under control by 5. The roofs of the social hall and the administrative office collapsed, but the sanctuary remained intact.

The township commissioners have appointed John Straub, a Du Pont Co. employee, to fill a vacancy on the Southwest Delaware County Municipal Authority. The vacancy was created when Raymond Opdenaker, the authority's vice chairman, resigned amid conflict-of-interest allegations. His company, Raymond T. Opdenaker & Sons Inc., had been awarded a $110,000 sludge-removal contract that was later terminated on the advice of James Proud, the authority's new solicitor. The authority provides sewage treatment for Aston and Middletown and parts of Upper Chichester, Brookhaven and Chester Township.

John Wind loved David Bowie's music, but it was the musician's glam-rock style - the fiery red hair, eyelids painted teal blue, metallic skinny pants, and long, dramatic trench coats - that gave Wind the OK he needed to embrace his outsider status as a teen and young adult. "I was so attracted to his outrageousness, independence, and sexual ambiguity," said Wind, 54, remembering how Bowie's irreverent fashion choices inspired him during his nerdy days at Harriton High School in Lower Merion.

Julie and Derek saw Addie for the first time in a 15-second video clip: a stunned-looking toddler in a McDonald's T-shirt, with a paper sign bearing her name in Chinese characters. She had a club foot and was missing five fingers. Derek pictured his grandmother, whose dominant hand had fingers ending at the first knuckle, deftly chopping vegetables. Julie, an occupational therapist, was already planning the exercises that would help Addie learn to walk. But neither wavered: This child, living in a foster home 8,000 miles away, was their daughter.
