As families grow up, the need for space may decrease . . . but not by too much. Indeed, moving from a single-family home to a rental apartment can present space issues. With one- and two-bedroom rental apartments offering 1,040 to 1,385 square feet of living space, Oakwynne House in Wynnewood seems to address this issue for some residents, with room to spare. "The space here is fantastic," said Harriet Friedman, a retired executive secretary who moved to the complex in September with her husband, Isadore, a retired salesman of women's shoes.

Students and staff at Devon Preparatory School seem to have taken a shine to the newcomer on campus: St. Anthony Hall, the school's first new building since 1961. "It's an answer to our prayers," said the Rev. James J. Shea, headmaster. "Everybody loves it, absolutely loves it. " The three-story building, part of a $4.2 million capital project at the Catholic school for boys in grades six through 12, houses a computer lab with 24 computers, a science lab, six classrooms, a library, and a teachers' lounge.

As a nation of critics dissected his rare poor playoff game, questioning his effort, digging for deeper clues about his future and wondering if he has what it takes to win an NBA championship, LeBron James worked on his jumper. As panic spread through the region, swallowing his nearby hometown of Akron, Ohio, and causing further damage to Cleveland's badly damaged sports psyche, James exuded calm. There's nothing he can do about Game 5. It's history. Game 6 tonight in Boston, however, is a chance for redemption and James believes Cavaliers fans should be confident.

By his own count, Bruce Moore threw "about 15" elbows during Penn's 54-50 loss to Massachusetts in the NCAA East Regional opening round, March 19, in Syracuse. The intensity the former 6-4 guard brought to the Carrier Dome that day might have been just what Penn needed to get past the heavily favored Minutemen. But there was just one problem - Moore, 50, hasn't suited up in the Red & Blue since he captained the Quakers in his senior season in 1965. Moore, head coach of the Strath Haven High boys basketball team, was seated at midcourt with fellow Penn alumni, including the oldest of his three sons, 22-year-old Brett.

On Saturday at the Princeton Relays, Bishop Shanahan senior Jen Howe knew exactly what to expect at the start of the distance medley relay and had her elbows sharp and ready. "There was plenty of pushing and shoving, especially going around the first turn," Howe said. "There were about 16 teams and everyone wanted to get a good start," she said. "I just fought my way through it. " Howe used her experience, speed and elbows to take the early lead and gradually pull away over the course of her 1,200-meter leg, and teammates Jamie Paul, Heather McClung and Karen Hauck expanded the lead on every lap. The Eagles won their heat in 12 minutes and 56.75 seconds and were eighth overall in the race, which included 50 East Coast teams.

If Frankie and Annette, and Gidget and the gang from Where the Boys Are had come of age at the South Jersey Shore, you would have found them in Margate. Back in the old days, such rockin' hot spots as Merill's, Gable's, the Elbow Room, Ocean Club, Maynard's, White House, Old Tavern and others represented a rite of passage for many young folks, and enabled the area surrounding Washington and Amherst Avenues to establish a reputation as a unique party mecca. The "Barbary Coast," as this area has been called for years, in the past was sometimes compared to Fort Lauderdale, Fla., thanks to its appeal to high- spirited college kids who would rent homes close to the bar action.

Fine, schmine: The Mets will take the cheap stuff It is sometimes said players are like a fine wine: They get better with age. The Mets probably wish Jason Bay had been more like a box of Franzia: inexpensive; enjoyable, if not elite, right after purchase; and headache-free. From 2004 through 2009, Bay hit 181 homers (one for every 17.8 at-bats), played 149 games a year, had a .375 on-base percentage, and put up a .519 slugging percentage. From the start of 2010 through June 26, Bay hit nine homers in 540 at-bats (one for every 60 ABs)

Although Katie White and Jules de Martino of the Ting Tings are, respectively, in their late 20s and early 40s, their music seems to emanate directly from a petulant teenage girl. Their singsong melodies and insistent beats are reminiscent of playground taunts and Double Dutch rhymes. The crowd at Friday's Trocadero show skewed young: The club's over-21 areas had plenty of elbow room, but the all-ages floor was packed. Toward the front of the stage, a homemade sign floated above the crowd: "I'm Missing Junior Prom for This!

Thirty years ago today the disillusioned population of communist Hungary launched the greatest popular revolt against Soviet power ever attempted in Eastern Europe. Two weeks later, as the West failed to respond to Prime Minister Imre Nagy's last, desperate radio appeal for help, 200,000 Soviet troops crushed the uprising. The bloody fighting left 20,000 Hungarians dead and 200,000 more pushed into exile, and killed any illusions among East Bloc reformers that American rhetoric about freedom would translate into military support against the Soviet Union.

Work has begun on a two-story addition to the state police barracks on West Baltimore Pike that will give the troopers a little more elbow room. The barracks is next to the Franklin Mint. It is owned by the mint and leased by the state police. As part of the nine-month project, the existing 10,000-square-foot facility will be gutted and renovated, said Lt. Barry Sparks, commander of the barracks. The facility will be reconfigured to take advantage of the new space, he said.
