The Radnor School District has hired an administrator from its chief rival, neighboring Lower Merion, to be its new superintendent. Michael J. Kelly has worked at Lower Merion since 1999, first as director of pupil services, then as assistant superintendent for the last five years. He was a special-education teacher and supervisor in the West Chester School District before moving to Lower Merion, and he holds a law degree from Widener University School of Law. "I didn't go to law school intending to become a lawyer," said Kelly, 52, who went to Widener at night while teaching in West Chester.

For local artist James Burns, creating a mural depicting the emotions surrounding suicide hits close to home. "Suicide is not just about ending one person's suffering," Burns said. "What people don't realize is that it starts a whole chain reaction of sorrow for those who are left behind. " Burns, 37, is head artist on the Philadelphia Mural Arts Program's latest project, "Finding the Light Within," at 119 S. 31st St. The painter was denied the opportunity to know his grandfather because of his untimely death, and while working on the two-year project, he lost friends from graduate school and high school months apart.

It's easy to get lost in the global village. That's why Georgia Bennett has been able to build a business by giving people directions to the right schoolhouse door. Her West Chester consulting firm, Bennett Educational Resources, provides information on education to corporations and their employees moving to and from the United States. The company might help a U.S. family find a program abroad for a special- needs child, or help a foreign transferee's spouse apply to U.S. graduate schools.

IF YOU WERE to drive past Dupree Studios on a bombed-out block in Mantua, you'd never imagine that a wonderland lies behind its nondescript red facade. An empty, weedy lot sits at one end of the block. And the handful of decrepit homes near Dupree Studios look like they'll collapse the next time a school bus rumbles past. So you might think it's no big deal that the building owned by artist James Dupree was seized last December by the Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority, which condemned a two-block area through eminent domain for commercial development.

The phone call came at dinnertime, and I could tell instantly that the daughter on the other end was uncomfortable. So we talked of the usual stuff - her life, ours, how things were going in graduate school. And then we got to the point. Our daughter wanted us to know that she would be moving in with her then-boyfriend. Soon. She methodically gave me the new address. I methodically wrote it down. But as it was happening, I knew, standing at the kitchen counter more than 25 years ago, that we'd crossed another generational border.

Rowan University Police Sgt. Joseph Barnett and two fellow officers were keeping the peace on a bar-closing detail shortly before 2 a.m. a year ago when a young man on a bicycle clipped a curb, catapulted over the handlebars, and, tangled in his bike, crashed like a torpedo. "When he hit the ground, he hit headfirst," Barnett said. "You could hear him hit. " Blood pumped from his nose and mouth, pooling fast around him. Despite the possibility of a neck injury, the officers moved him. "If we didn't move him, he would have aspirated and drowned," Barnett said.
