Chalk up one more bishop's staff and mitre for a hometown graduate of St. Charles Borromeo Roman Catholic seminary. Msgr. Edward J. Adams was ordained an archbishop yesterday in a virtual "homeboys' mass" that drew prominent local alumni from Rome, New Orleans and Manhattan to the Cathedral Basilica of Ss. Peter and Paul, 18th Street and the Parkway. Adams, 52, born in Frankford and raised in Oxford Circle, is headed for Bangladesh as papal nuncio - the pope's chief representative.

"Return with us now, to those thrilling days of yesteryear . . . " Yeah! That's the ticket. The ticket your high school reunion committee is trying to sell you. The ticket that promises a warm and nostalgic walk down memory lane. The ticket that prompts thoughts like, "This proves I've gotten older . . . but have I gotten better?" A recent study conducted by two Illinios State University psychologists suggests that the answer to this question is unlikely to influence whether or not you attend.

When members of the class of '86 gather for their 10th high school reunion in the posh Detroit suburb of Grosse Pointe, they dance to the big hits of the '80s. Martin Blank, who journeys back to Michigan with understandable misgivings, can claim responsibility for some of the biggest hits of the '90s, but the admission poses delicate problems. When the inevitable so-what-are-you doing-these-days questions surface, how do you explain to classmates who have become accountants, doctors, ministers and real-estate agents that you make your living murdering people?

For someone who wasn't sure which career path to take, Candace Gottlieb made the most of her decision. Gottlieb, the College of New Jersey's diving coach for the last nine years, was named the NCAA Division III coach of the year at the national championships, held March 13-15 at Miami University of Ohio. Gottlieb was honored after one of her divers, Diane Maiese, won the one-meter championship and finished eighth at three meters. Maiese, a Cherry Hill East graduate, is the first diver in the college's history to win a national title.

CLASS REUNION. 9 p.m. Saturday, Channel 10. Only the producers of MTV's "The Real World" could sell this idea for a TV movie: Round up 15 former classmates and pay them to become housemates for the week leading up to their 10-year high school reunion. They sold it to NBC, which will telecast the results tonight as "Class Reunion. " It's not really a movie, but a documentary about the private reunion before the class reunion. That doesn't mean the results can't be entertaining.

A class reunion in every sense of the expression, The Women of Summer focuses on the women who flourished as a result of Bryn Mawr College's Summer School, where, from 1921 through 1938, 1,700 red-blooded sweatshop workers studied the curriculum of Seven Sisters blue bloods. Most colleges, including Bryn Mawr's pastoral Main Line campus, are designed to be meditative retreats keeping the noisy world out. But the Bryn Mawr Summer School brought the world in. It was a place where factory workers studied the economic theories of capitalism; where high-school dropouts graduated to careers in education, labor organizing, social work and government.

Perhaps he was voted "most likely to be arrested at the class reunion . . .. " State Police in Delaware County said that they arrested a West Chester man at his 20th class reunion early Sunday after he got wasted and refused to leave. He then assaulted bartenders who dragged him out and a state trooper who tried to stop him from going back inside, according to police. Trooper Rosemary McGuire, State Police spokeswoman, said that she did not know what school's 20th reunion Matthew Wade Huston was attending at the Concordville Inn, the restaurant attached to the Best Western Plus Concordville Hotel on Route 1. Huston's "tumultuous behavior" after one too many cocktails led hotel staff to ask him to leave the premises, according to a report written by investigating Trooper John Hanosek.

The class reunion was in the works way before witchcraft bubbled to the surface. It was late summer, and Christine O'Donnell - Delaware's Republican senatorial candidate - had yet to stumble into the nation's spotlight when her former Moorestown High classmates decided to plan a get-together. Nothing formal. Just a gathering on Thanksgiving weekend at the Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant in Maple Shade. Cash bar. Appetizers. "A nice way to see 'old' friends," read the post on Moorestown's Class of 1987 Facebook page.

When the discussion of funny names got going on Anita Gevinson's WCAU-AM radio talk show, her thoughts went back to a former classmate at Neshaminy High School. The woman's name was Amber Hamberger and, according to her lawyer, she has not spoken to Gevinson since their graduation in 1970. They may have a two-woman class reunion in Bucks County Court, however. The woman, now Amber Hamberger Reynolds, filed suit there on Monday, alleging that Gevinson's Feb. 9 broadcast publicly humiliated her. The complaint, filed Monday against Gevinson, the station and CBS Inc., its parent corporation, says that Gevinson described the maiden name as so humorous and hateful to Reynolds that it caused her to marry immediately upon graduation.

DEAR ABBY: My wife, "Kate," and her sister, "Judy," do not get along, to the point that my wife refuses to be in the same room with her. I have a class reunion coming up, and Judy is in my class. Because we're not sure Judy will show up, Kate has said she will attend - but she'll leave if Judy arrives. We had planned on going in separate cars so Kate could escape if necessary. But now she says if Judy puts in an appearance, she'll be upset with me if I don't leave with her. I don't get along with Judy either, but I'd like the chance to catch up with other classmates.

THIS SUNDAY'S matchup between the Eagles and the Washington Redskins was not on anyone's mind 7 years ago, when quarterbacks Nick Foles and Kirk Cousins spent their freshman seasons buried far beneath starter Brian Hoyer on the Michigan State depth chart. Foles got into one game, completed five of eight passes. Cousins redshirted. At the end of the year, Foles transferred to Arizona. Cousins became the Spartans' starter in 2009 and was drafted by the Washington Redskins in 2012, in the fourth round, 102nd overall - 14 slots behind Foles, who was taken in the third round by the Eagles.

DEAR ABBY: My husband, "Vinny," and I were growing apart after 10 years of marriage. It was both our faults. Vinny reconnected with a woman at his class reunion and started an inappropriate, secret relationship with her. I discovered some of their emails and saw they had been texting numerous times a day. When I "busted" Vinny, he denied everything until I showed him the proof of what I knew. We have had issues in the past with him not being honest, but this was the straw that broke the camel's back.

The large portrait photographs in the exhibition called "Terror" at the Slought Foundation look odd the moment one sees them, as if they were poorly focused or double exposures. One needs to read the exhibition brochure to learn that each one is a composite created by layering images of people killed in the violence between Israelis and Palestinians. The portraits depict people - old and young, male and female - in a state between life and death. Some faces are bloodied, but otherwise it's hard to tell whether these are morgue shots or whether eerie effects such as deeply shadowed eyes result from the layering.
