IT STARTED with a shared vision. Jennifer Richmond and her business partner, Joel Odhner, wanted to change Philadelphia's palate and make healthy eating sexy. The duo, both in their mid-40s, met two years ago at a Landmark Forum education seminar. Richmond stood up in the audience and said, "I want to change Philadelphia's food options and open a raw vegetarian restaurant. " Odhner had the same idea. "We were like soul spirits on the same path," Richmond said recently.

It was the kind of game Academy of the New Church junior Savon Goodman expects to be involved in many times when he arrives at Villanova and competes in the Big East: physical and intense, with a down-to-the-wire ending. Wednesday's Friends Schools League playoff semifinal against Abington Friends had a bit of everything, including an 18-minute delay caused when the fire alarm sounded in the third quarter, the result of pizza being overcooked at the concession stand. In a pressure cooker, the second-place Lions, who forced overtime with a 10-2 run at the end of regulation, fought past undersized, third-place Abington Friends, 54-51, in Bryn Athyn.

The president of Bryn Athyn College, who joined the Montgomery County school less than a year ago and was the first to hold the position, has resigned. Christopher Clark submitted his resignation late last month and will leave his post effective May 31, said Bruce Henderson, a spokesman for the college. Clark resigned partly because of the pressures and frustrations involved in the 190-student school's recent efforts to expand its enrollment, Henderson said. Clark, 68, did not return calls seeking comment.

For more than 120 years, Bryn Athyn College was content in its role as one of the smallest schools in the nation. Enrollment was typically between 120 and 160. Students lived a college life surrounded by other members of a religion based on the writings of a Christian mystic. But trustees have made a move that confirms a new era in the Montgomery County college's 132-year history. They have hired its first president to lead it beyond the boundaries of religion. "It's just basically too expensive to provide all the services a college needs for a handful of students," said Christopher Clark, who took over as president in the fall.

It was an unusual recipe: Take one antique Victorian purse and add one American Indian amulet. But it was just the convergence of inspirations that Arlene Wartenberg needed to transform herself into a working artist. A retired college professor, mother of three, and lifelong knitter, Wartenberg, now 73, never imagined she would get serious about crafts. She was already well into an active retirement when she saw a vintage beaded purse in an antiques store and thought she would try to make one, a miniature, and transform it into a necklace like those worn by American Indians.

The same commitment that drove Tristan Smith to become a Bryn Athyn volunteer firefighter at the age of 16 led him to join the Army at the age of 21. He was killed in Iraq on Sunday doing what he believed in, his family and friends said yesterday. Smith, 23, a weapons specialist with the Army's Fourth Infantry Division stationed northwest of Baghdad, was on patrol when an improvised explosive device detonated, said his father, Grant Smith. They last saw him in April, when he returned to Bryn Athyn on leave after five months in Iraq.
