The 911 calls came within minutes in the wee hours of Friday morning. First, for a 5-year-old girl banging on the front door, her clothes bloodied, at the Winslow Township home she shared with her mother. "Mommy is dead," the girl, uninjured, told another person, who answered the door, according to authorities. Less than a mile away, a pizza delivery driver dialed 911 after finding a body - the girl's mother, covered in blood - on the side of a road. Night turned to dawn, and a manhunt ensued for Jennifer Bongco's killer.

IF YOU WERE the parent of a student of Linda Laverne Roberson and your child was having some problems in school, you might expect a knock on your door. Linda was a teacher who cared.

Some might have been in college and needed academic help, maybe the editing of a school paper.

TURNING THE BIG 4-0 can be a difficult hurdle. Amanda Schoonover, a South Philly-based actress, was no exception. But instead of hiding from her age the way so many in her profession do, she decided to celebrate the fact that she was entering her fourth decade by posing for some boudoir-style photos. Nothing overly risque or graphic. She wanted to pose in lingerie and strike some 1950s-era style pinup poses. Tasteful images taken by a professional photographer. "I wanted to do something that would make me feel good about myself," Schoonover told me yesterday.
