It may well turn into a strange irony of the summer movie season that one of the slickest pieces of escapist entertainment should be set in a prison. The alleged object in Michael Bay's turbocharged thriller The Rock is to break into, rather than out of, Alcatraz. But the real aim is to make a film that's faster than a blink. Bay, who directed last year's Bad Boys, has a background in MTV videos, and it shows in The Rock's frenetic pace, which speeds the movie past a crazy premise and gaping plotholes.

Ralph Ebeling, 92, propped up his metal cane and stretched into a favorite chair in his Broomall living room, filled with dusky-colored Victorian furniture and exotic Oriental screens and prints. Accepting the compliment that he looks 20 years younger than his age, Ebeling showed off his hands, stroking the smooth palms and fingers. "My hand outside is very youthful. Turn it to the other side, I'm an old man. " They are the hands of an artist and a craftsman, and Ebeling is both.

Gleaming amid the old farm equipment, rusting tools and wood advertising signs that crowded an outbuilding next to a shut-down restaurant west of Quakertown last week was a pair of stainless-steel van der Rohe Barcelona chairs. Unlikely as it seemed, both the chairs and the farm equipment have a common ownership. All will be sold by auctioneer Ken Reed at the same sale, beginning at 4 p.m. Wednesday at the Olde Millside Inn on Route 29 just north of its intersection with Route 663. Behind the odd juxtaposition, however, is the tale of the multifaceted couple that operated the inn until recently - Barbara and the late William von Hummel.

But the firm is back in operation, working out of a nearby building and resuming its usual schedule of liquidation sales. "We're going to stay in business," Julius Gordon himself said yesterday. "But we have to find a location. " Gordon's temporary location is 228 Market St., four houses from the former facilities, which were torn down because of structural damage caused by the Dec. 18 fire.

Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia opened its season with a coup: The local debut of British trumpeter Alison Balsom, 32, who in recent years has emerged as the kind of artist who redefines what her instrument can do - though here in an overly lightweight program. As a composer himself, music director Dirk Brossé blew all kinds of life into the Hummel Trumpet Concerto (Balsom's vehicle) and Schubert's Symphony No. 3 - the two works that dominated the program - but neither gives you a lot to take home, even when rendered to the high performance standard heard Sunday at the Kimmel Center's Perelman Theater.

The questions became repetitive. And Rob Hummel was running out of nice things to say about his Lenape girls' basketball team. In Hummel's mind, it really wasn't that complicated. He kept going back to the theme of hard work. What's the secret to his team's lockdown defense? "They do everything they have to do to win," he said. Throughout this season, Lenape had a reputation not just for being a tenacious defensive team, but for being a prepared defensive team. The tenacity, as Hummel points out, starts with the players.

"Labor Day differs in every essential from the other holidays of the year of any country," said Samuel Gompers, founder and longtime president of the American Federation of Labor.
