Hundreds of mourners, many of them teenagers experiencing for the first time the death of a friend, paid their respects Monday to Megan Hughes, the 17-year-old Council Rock High School senior who died in her sleep last week while on a school trip in London. About 800 people filled the pews of St. Vincent de Paul Church in Richboro for the hour-long Mass of Christian Burial. Many of the mourners were Council Rock students and staff members who returned over the weekend from their weeklong visit to London, where the school band marched in the Lord Mayor of Westminster's New Year's Day Parade.

The goal was one year. Phillies outfielder Shane Victorino assured the youth at the Nicetown Boys and Girls Club last spring that he'd help their crumbling haven get an overdue makeover. Through the foundation that bears his name, Victorino and his wife donated $900,000 to the club, and construction on the 105-year-old building, once slated for possible closing, began last week. The updated center - with its upgraded teen room, technology center, fully equipped gym, and art room, among other offerings - is scheduled to reopen in late summer.

The Onion.com ran a funny story some years back about obsolete provocateur Marilyn Manson mounting a futile campaign to shock Midwesterners. He'd knock on doors covered in the blood of aborted fetuses, or whatever, and receive a polite send-off. A few compassionate Kansans even pretended to be shocked out of respect for Manson's ego. I thought of this story while watching the overrated "Hamlet 2," one of those straight-out-of-Sundance "sensations" with a smug belief in its own subversiveness.

It's the variety of clubs at St. Patrick School that impresses science teacher Joanna Fabii. "I've never been in any school that has this kind of a program," she said. "The kids can try all sorts of different avenues to do things. " Principal Margaret Mecca said she decided at the beginning of this school year that the school's 60 sixth, seventh and eighth graders needed a change from recess. So she carved out time in their schedule and now, from 2:30 to 3:15 p.m. Monday through Thursday, they have their choice of clubs - among them drama, art, cooking, photography, technology, sports and study skills.
