Empty seats have been a chronic problem for the Sixers even before Allen Iverson left town. Now, even off last season's playoff run and the offseason signing of Elton Brand, those low numbers are creeping back into the picture. Through four games, the Sixers are averaging 12,601 in attendance, ranking them 28th out of 30 NBA teams. That they started by losing five of their first seven hasn't helped. Neither did that shadow the size of Yao Ming cast by the Phillies and their world championship.

Weeping mourners crowded around a mass grave for 52 munitions workers at the Chester Rural Cemetery, grieving for those killed just a few days before in a huge explosion at the Eddystone Ammunition Works. Altogether, 128 people were killed and 89 seriously injured. Most of those who died were munitions workers who had no warning when an explosion leveled one of the buildings at the sprawling plant. That was the scene described by several Delaware County newspapers in April 1917 when, four days after the U.S. entry into World War I, a munitions plant exploded in Eddystone.

Once again, Ridley Township Solicitor Peter Rohana found himself before the Middletown Township Council Monday trying to legitimize the basement he illegally remodeled at his office condo several years ago. The township discovered in 1991 that the basement had been remodeled without a building permit, and the issue just won't go away. In September the council, with some objections, granted Rohana's request to use the basement after he successfully petitioned the Township Zoning Hearing Board to create three additional parking spaces at the Office Court at Pennell Place, where his office is. Parking concerns had been one of the reasons the township had prohibited the use of the basements for anything but storage.

Q uestion: My son and daughter-in-law purchased a twin ranch home with a finished basement in the Northeast in September. The recent heavy rains invaded their home and caused a great deal of damage to the back wall in both the basement and the bedroom above. They called an adjuster, who cut out the damaged walls and removed carpet, and brought in fans and a dehumidifier. All materials were saved for the insurance company to see. The adjuster said he would file the insurance claim for them, and that potential causes of the water intrusion could be the bedroom window and the back patio, put in by a previous owner.
