Barbara Cummiskey Tacconelli, 70, co-owner of Tacconelli's Pizzeria, a Port Richmond landmark, died Saturday, Dec. 22, of heart failure at Kennedy University Hospital-Cherry Hill. Mrs. Tacconelli grew up with 13 siblings in Port Richmond. At 16, she married Vincent Tacconelli and began helping him operate his family's pizza shop. The couple raised four children on the second floor. Tacconelli's crispy-crusted, brick-oven pizza was always popular with locals. Its fame spread to the suburbs and beyond in the 1980s after it was chosen as a "Best of Philly" by Philadelphia Magazine, and was profiled in The Inquirer and the Philadelphia Daily News and on local TV stations.

If you feel a mere bumper sticker is an insufficient display of patriotism, Main Line Sign & Design in Feasterville has just what you need. The company's "Auto Marquee" is a rigid, thermoformed signboard that clips between the top of an automobile rolldown window and the door frame, displaying a waving American flag above the statement "We Support Our Troops. " The image is silk-screened onto the board, which is made of polyvinyl chloride. The sign extends straight up above the window and roof of the car, not down to block the driver's view.

It wasn't your usual kind of deliveryman who pulled up to a darkened home in the 100 block of Fairview Avenue in Yeadon about 12:25 a.m. Friday. Sure, the guy in Bermuda shorts had the Domino's Pizza emblem on his car and was carrying a pizza warming bag. But this man knew about the recent holdups of deliverymen in Yeadon and Lansdowne. In each case, the robbers would place an order and then drive to the location where they had requested the delivery, often a secluded home.

Tom Monaghan, the owner of Domino's Pizza and the Detroit Tigers, has sold the baseball team to Mike Ilitch, head of rival Little Caesar's Pizza, for about $80 million, the Detroit News reported yesterday. Monaghan, who had been seeking as much as $100 million, has been trying to sell the ball club for months to raise money for his faltering pizza empire. A spokesman for Monaghan declined to confirm the reports, but the team scheduled a news conference for tomorrow. A spokesman for Ilitch, 63, who also owns the Detroit Red Wings hockey team, said that nothing had been signed yet and that Ilitch was out of town on business.

THE HUG FACTOR Hugs and physical affection from parents strongly affect a child's chances for successful friendships, marriages and careers, says a 36-year study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology. Seventy percent of the children with affectionate parents did well socially, compared with only 30 percent of those with cold-fish parents. Significantly, fathers' hugs were found to be as important as mothers'. TRICKY CHOLESTEROL You shouldn't put too much stock in a single cholesterol test, because levels may vary widely from day to day. "Think of your cholesterol level not as one number, but as a range," says Gordon Wardlaw, associate professor of allied medical professions at Ohio State University.

First you squirm. Then you reach for the channel changer. Then you snort out loud at the lunacy on the screen. Anyone who has ever watched TV knows the pain. In an effort to stamp out this ailment of the airwaves, Adweek magazine recently named the 10 worst TV commercials among the "winners" of its fifth annual Badvertising Awards. "We're hoping to shame these offenders into stopping the senseless torture of the average American viewer," said Kim Foltz, managing editor of Adweek's special-reports section.

It's tough in the pizza business these days. Especially in Montgomery County. In the last several years, the area's pizza market has been pushed, pulled and kneaded for all it's worth. Pizza Hut Inc. is one of the newest - and biggest - competitors to grab for a slice of the market. Its home-delivery duel with Domino's Pizza has forced local pizza shops to do some creative marketing to keep their ovens fired up. Montgomery County was one of the last areas in suburban Philadelphia that Pizza Hut targeted in its expansion effort.

Pizza has been around Philadelphia for so long that the signers of the Constitution probably had it for dinner. But they certainly couldn't have had it delivered within 30 minutes. Home delivery among the major pizza chains is the newest topping in the rapidly growing convenience market. We want our car's oil changed in 10 minutes, our pictures developed and clothes cleaned in an hour - and our pizza delivered in 30 minutes or less. "The growth in the pizza market is going to be in delivery, and if we're not in it, someone else will be," said Mike Jenkins, corporate public relations manager at Pizza Hut, which is in the process of adding home delivery around the country.

A 52-year-old pizza deliveryman was shot and killed Wednesday night in a suspected robbery after dropping off an order at an apartment complex, police said yesterday. James Middleton, a Marine Corps veteran, would never have given up his delivery money to thieves because "it was just a matter of principle for him," his mother said. Middleton, a driver for the Domino's Pizza location on Durham Road, made a delivery at the Racquet Club Apartments about 9:45 p.m. and was shot in the left shoulder after he returned to his Jeep Cherokee, Police Sgt. Ken Mellus said.

Maybe Jim Bell, whose discrimination suit was thrown out of court last week, really did believe Domino's Pizza intentionally discriminated against and "humiliated" him and his black neighbors in Southwest Washington by requiring them to come out to the curb to pick up their pizza deliveries. And maybe racism really is the reason pizza delivery companies across the nation are refusing to deliver to certain parts of town. But maybe it isn't. D.C. Superior Court Judge Judith Bartnoff thought it wasn't, at least in Bell's case.

It was fairly quiet as the judges filed into the large, empty room. With their shoes scraping along the hard, tiled floors they spoke softly among themselves as the biggest decision of, well, seventh period was laid before them. It wasn't the decision of a lifetime and it wasn't even the Pepsi Challenge. But for the approximately 50 students at Haddon Heights High School chosen as judges of the third annual Pizza Challenge on Tuesday, it was a chance to take part in a market research study, have some free lunch and for a few, get out of study hall.

Call the Domino's on South Street with an order for a large pepperoni pizza with olives and a chain reaction begins. Not only does a cook cover a disc of dough with tomato sauce, cheese and the toppings and slide it into the oven, but the shop operator has to reorder more of whatever it took to make that pizza from Domino's Jessup, Md., distribution center. Domino's Pizza Inc., the franchiser based in Ann Arbor, Mich., is increasingly relying on a small Fort Washington software firm to help it decide how much sausage, cheese, dough and pizza boxes its distribution centers should order from its suppliers.

The two Moorestown men charged in the New Year's Eve slaying of Moorestown 16-year-old Adam Suopys were indicted by a Burlington County grand jury this week in connection with a sometimes-bungled crime spree that spanned two months. James A. Ronca, deputy first assistant prosecutor, said yesterday that Patrick Joel Free, 19, and Ryoji Damon Katow, 20, were part of a quartet of young men who stole one car, attempted to steal another and held up a Mount Holly pizza shop three times between last Halloween and the stabbing murder of Suopys two months later.
