The Union seem impressed with their latest trialist, but whether they sign the 22-year-old Chilean free agent, Santiago Dittborn, remains to be seen. Dittborn, an attacking midfielder with a strong left foot - something the Union, or any team, could surely use - has earned six caps with the Chilean senior national team and is with the Union all week. "It is only three days he has been with us and it is still early but he has been impressive," Union coach Jim Curtin said of Dittborn.

At home in Chile, Michelle Bachelet - that nation's president, elected to her second term in a landslide vote in 2013 - works a tough balancing act. Her Pacific nation is home to robust capitalists - mine owners, winemakers, fruit growers whose Southern Hemisphere seasons enable them to supply Americans in winter - and militant communist and anarchist groups, which press hard, and often successfully, for taxing the rich to pay for college tuition, retirement...

A dehydrated and exhausted Jesús Pérez felt the cramp in his leg and fell to the desert floor. But the University of Pennsylvania junior rose, got medical help, and kept running, finishing what amounted to almost a full marathon. Then he woke up the next day and did it all over again - and four more times after that. In all, Pérez ran 136 miles in six days in the Atacama Desert in Chile, known as the driest place on Earth. It was the equivalent of more than five full marathons for a teen who had never run one before.

Three months after his mission to South America, Gov. Corbett on Wednesday inaugurated a trade office at the Chilean Consulate of Greater Philadelphia that officials hope will help attract more traffic through the Delaware River ports. A Chilean trade delegation on a three-day visit to Pennsylvania is also exploring energy and manufacturing opportunities, according to the governor's office. The Chilean consulate, one of more than two dozen foreign missions in Philadelphia, is located in the Bourse at Independence Mall on Fifth Street.

Gov. Corbett and senior agricultural officials from Chile gathered at Packer Avenue Marine Terminal in South Philadelphia on Tuesday to mark what they say is a growing Chilean and South American fruit trade to Philadelphia. On a pier behind them, the Bahia Castillo, a refrigerated cargo ship, was unloading fresh Chilean fruit. About 10,000 pounds of the grapes, kiwis, apples, and pears were donated to Philabundance, the hunger relief group, which took the fruit by truck to area food pantries.

SANTIAGO, Chile - Manzana! Manzana! ("Apple! Apple!") This was the sudden hue and cry in the Santiago airport when I arrived in Chile this summer, semi-delirious after traveling about 18 hours with a big fat Fuji in my purse that I had forgotten to eat. This violated every international law against agricultural imports, and all at once there were several officers, many documents, and much stamping of same until I was finally released without a...

BUZZ: WHEN did they start making wine with chile peppers, Marnie? Marnie: I think you may have your wires crossed, Buzz. Where did you hear that? Buzz : I read it right on the label of the wine my buddy brought over last night. It said "Chile. " My gut can't handle spicy stuff the way it used to, so I didn't open it. Marnie: Oh. No need to worry. That's not "chile wine"; it's wine from Chile in South America. Buzz: Red wine from South America?

PAGING Ed Snider . . . Ed Snider please report to PPL Park. On a day of FIFA international fixtures, Ghana took on Chile last night in an exhibition match at PPL Park. In a steady downpour, Ghana put on a first-half show en route to taking a surprising lead into the break. Richard Mpong scored off a crisp through-ball from Sulley Muntari in the 42nd minute, quieting the pro-Chilean crowd and sending the Ghanaian contingent, which featured a handful of dignitaries, into a frenzy.
