By Jackie Soteropoulos Incollingo With a bold and innovative plan, H.F. "Gerry" Lenfest - now the former owner of the company that runs The Inquirer, the Daily News, and Philly.com - has put Philadelphia at the forefront of exploring a new economic model for struggling metropolitan newspapers. Lenfest's decision to donate the properties to a nonprofit institute is a gift to the region's citizens, but it is an even larger gift to the future of journalism, given the critical role that news and information play in our democracy and the troubled economic times facing many media outlets.

WHAT MADE life interesting for Buzzy Hall was a date with a beautiful woman and chilling out in front of his flat-screen TV to watch sports. And, oh yes, he was passionate about his employment for over 40 years with the companies that owned the Daily News and Inquirer, rarely missing a day's work and rising to the position of mailroom supervisor. "He was a diligent, dedicated worker," his daughter Lisa Hall said. "He would very rarely miss a day from work. He was what one might call a workaholic.

The Inquirer, the Daily News, and Philly.com have had occasion over the past decade to try out a wide array of what are politely termed "ownership models," from publicly traded corporations to vulture capitalists to political power brokers. For all their diverse approaches and agendas, these many masters have consistently reduced the company's complement of journalists and often brought about turmoil and uncertainty. H.F. "Gerry" Lenfest's newly announced transfer of the company to a nonprofit foundation holds tremendous promise in light of this dark recent history - not only to end the endless ownership shuffle, but also to prevent further deterioration of the company's power to produce independent, responsible, robust journalism, as well as position it to keep doing so in a rapidly changing business.

A crowd of about 75 people turned out at the National Constitution Center this morning as the owner of The Inquirer and its sister publications signed a ceremonial document marking his donation of the news organizations to a new media institute. "What would the city be without the Inquirer and the Daily News?" asked H.F. "Gerry" Lenfest, who until his gift was the sole owner of The Inquirer, Daily News and Philly.com website. No TV, radio or internet portal can match the news agencies in-depth coverage, he said.

WILLIE GIAMPALMI was a busy man, but he liked it that way. He worked for 40 years as a delivery truck driver for the Daily News, but at the same time, he was a doorman for a tavern in Milmont Park, Delaware County. And after he retired from the Daily News in the mid-'80s, he wasn't about to sit still. He went to work at the Clayton Park Golf Course for 30 more years, working in the clubhouse. And, oh, yes, he also volunteered as a delivery man for Meals on Wheels. William "Willie" Giampalmi, the son of Italian immigrants, an outstanding athlete in his youth, and a Navy veteran serving on Liberty Ships in World War II, died Sunday.
