When Sage Piszek heard that the first barrel of used cooking oil was full, he was puzzled. Already? Maybe rain had somehow seeped in. But when he checked, it was full ... of oil. That told Piszek that the project in South Philadelphia's Indonesian community, the first of its kind in the region, was working. On Tuesday, officials - including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's regional administrator - and community members gathered for a ceremonial pump-out of that first barrel.

There are three general varieties of olive oil on American grocery-store shelves. Here's a guide. Extra virgin olive oil Made from fully ripened olives that are pressed right after harvest, this oil should have a robust, fruity flavor and rich, greenish-gold color. Use extra virgin olive oil when you want its flavor to shine through - on salads, in vegetable dishes, for bread dipping and to season marinades, sauces and soups. Olive oil All-purpose cooking oil, sometimes described as "pure olive oil," has a mild taste that can be a flavor-enhancer in various dishes.

IT TAKES only a day to turn a well-kept side street into a big, greasy pit. It's happened twice in the last month on Orianna Street in Northern Liberties, a local business owner named Christina tells us. One day Orianna looked fine. The next, there was a huge, sticky wet spot on the sidewalk. At first, Christina thought it was water. But it never dried up, and the stuff got all over her dog's paws. It also reeked of food. Christina guessed that it was used cooking oil. Before we keep going, we should tell you that one of the main reasons Orianna looks good at all is that Christina and her family keep it clean.

They know what it wasn't. It wasn't rancid food, chemical contamination, bad cooking oil or food preparation procedures. State health officials haven't figured out what it was - what caused 29 children to become ill after eating meals purchased last Wednesday at a McDonald's in Blackwood. A week after the incident, Health Department spokeswoman Darlene Weiner said the state was looking for "another common link among the kids" - a new clue to the mystery. The children, from St. Agnes School, Blackwood, became nauseated about 45 minutes after they ate lunches brought to the school by their parents from a McDonald's on Blackwood-Clementon Road.

Missing signs show up in school In reply to Mark Doorley's letter ("Stolen freedom," Oct. 26) regarding stolen Democratic campaign signs, I ask him to not automatically blame their disappearance on fellow voters who happen to belong to the other party. I attended Back to School Night at one of our local high schools recently. On entering one of the classrooms, I was surprised to see those lawn signs plastered all over the walls and the ceiling! The teacher had instructed his students to bring in as many campaign artifacts as they could, and, yes, they are taking the signs off people's lawns!

The thieves had pulled a white van up to the back of the snazzy Chestnut Street restaurant Buddakan. Were they stealing cash, or the giant golden Buddha? A stash of the popular "dip sum" doughnuts? Nope. They were after the used cooking oil. With biodiesel production increasing and prices for feedstocks - including used cooking oil - soaring, a waste product that restaurants once paid to get rid of is now a commodity targeted by thieves. Greenworks Holdings, a group of companies that collect used cooking oil and convert it into biofuel, serves about 13,000 restaurants, mostly in the northeastern states.

KABUL, Afghanistan - In the gray light of each cold dawn, the parents of 10-month-old Shoaib hold their own breath as they listen for the rasp of his, waiting to see whether their coughing, feverish little boy has survived another night. Winter's chill has settled over the Afghan capital, and with it, privation is sharpening, especially among the city's poor. Nighttime temperatures regularly fall into the teens or lower. The season's first snow is on the ground, the open sewage ditches are crusted over with ice, and in shantytowns such as the one where Shoaib's family lives, survival turns on a series of cruelly simple calculations.

Andres Oppenheimer is a Latin America correspondent for the Miami Herald Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez's critics took advantage of his absence for cancer treatment in Cuba to blame him for all kinds of misdeeds, but it's time to give him credit for having performed a true economic miracle in his country. I'm not kidding. What Chavez has done in Venezuela over the last 12 years is nothing short of an economic miracle: Despite benefiting from the biggest oil boom in Venezuela's history, he has somehow managed to turn the country into a shambles.
