Kenyetta, 8, and her brother, Rahkee, 7, look out for each other. If apples are being passed out and one of the children is in the other room, the other will say, "Did you put one aside?" And they sing "I Believe I Can Fly" in passable harmony. There is neglect and abuse in their background. Both have attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, but they don't need medication. They are in special-education classes for children with learning disabilities. They have average IQs, and Kenyetta is strong in math.

Today, young Carlos Cordovi and his siblings are alive. But the shy eighth-grader shudders at the thought of what could have been. It was around 10 a.m. yesterday when a day home from school, sick with the flu, turned into a nightmare for the 13-year-old. Invisible carbon monoxide seeped from a faulty basement furnace without warning, filling all three levels of the family's Kensington home with killer gas. Minutes after his parents left for work, Cordovi watched his younger brother grow faint, then sick to his stomach.

On a rainy afternoon in a drafty rehearsal space in Kensington, members of Team Sunshine Performance Corporation were working through some of the more difficult emotional scenes in their new experimental theater piece. Then someone called for a naked dance party. "That happens sometimes," director Alex Torra said, shrugging, as the performers shed their clothes and began to thrash, twist, and twerk. "Go ahead and put your clothes back on," he said as they caught their breath and one wondered aloud about the location of her pants.

IN "THE SKELETON Twins," Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig turn their old "SNL" rapport into a convincing brother/sister dynamic. Be advised, though, this is not strictly or even mainly a comedy - Milo (Hader) has just attempted suicide, and the movie's opening shots tell you that Maggie (Wiig) is thinking along the same lines. And Milo's botched suicide is only his latest failure - he's an unemployed actor, he's just been dumped, and since his future in L.A. looks bleak, he agrees to move back to upstate New York and bunk with Maggie and her new husband, Lance (a Luke Wilson sighting!

  Three times a week Lee Yeash of Lumberton puts her black Lab, Rookie, in the car and drives to a dirt road in the Pinelands of Atlantic County. Blocked by two metal gates and a sign that reads, "No Unauthorized Access," the road into the Franklin Parker Preserve might seem uninviting. But hikers are welcome, and beyond those gates lies a vast and nearly pristine expanse of woods and sunlit lakes and meadows rippling these days with switchgrass and sedge, wild blueberries, redroot plants, leatherleaf bushes, jack pines, and white cedars that 20 years ago was cratered with cranberry bogs.

IN A MONTH, Ashley Wilson and Lindsay Vandermay, both 29, of Fairmount, will celebrate yet again. Having visited City Hall after work yesterday to receive their marriage license, the two women will walk down an aisle in the Outer Banks - the wedding they've been planning for the past two years of their five-year relationship. "For me, it just feels like we're everyone else," Wilson said after obtaining the license. She was referring to U.S. District Judge John E. Jones III's decision to strike down Pennsylvania's 1996 ban on same-sex marriage, which he called "unconstitutional" in a statement issued yesterday.

'This is a town that's always been good at making stuff up," says Jamie J. Brunson. "Try the Declaration of Independence. Try the Constitution. Philly is a town that's always been built on its stories. " Brunson is executive director of the First Person Arts Festival, which, in its 11th annual installment, will soon gather professional storytellers from all over, in a fresh entertainment genre that's also maybe the oldest. Growing outward from meccas such as Los Angeles, Boston, and Chicago, storytelling has been its own genre for decades now. It's a branch on a family tree that includes stand-up comedy, sketch, slam poetry, rap, and hip-hop.
