It has been more than a month since 5-year-old Lauren Jackson disappeared from the Park Springs Apartments in East Vincent Township. It has been a month of sleepless nights for the child's distraught mother. Sitting amid her daughter's toys in the living room of a sparsely furnished apartment Wednesday afternoon, Christine O'Donnell pointed to a little scooter parked against the wall. "I gave (Lauren) that for her birthday on Sept. 26," said O'Donnell, 35, her voice cracking, "but she didn't even learn to ride it right yet. " An intensive search began about an hour after Lauren's disappearance the evening of Oct. 4, with helicopters, bloodhounds, trackers and divers, but to date, authorities say they have turned up no significant clues to the child's whereabouts.

The three Graham siblings of Chester - Chrishon, 19; Antoine, 17; and Al'lyssa, 15 - are among thousands of volunteers nationwide working to unearth elusive clues that will allow millions of families to trace their ancestors back through Reconstruction and into slavery.

PARENTS AT THE private Springside Chestnut Hill Academy met yesterday amid concerns over a middle-school teacher who wore a noose costume to a Halloween parade. Parents held meetings yesterday - one in the morning and one in the evening at two churches - to discuss how to respond to the school administration. The meetings followed an initial meeting at the school last Friday. One parent said in a telephone interview that she was "absolutely" offended by the noose outfit worn Oct. 30. "It calls to mind issues of lynching and suicide," said the parent, who asked to remain anonymous out of concern that her child would be identified.
