Adela Huaman needed only one word to describe all that was here when she came to this pocket of Lima called Villa El Salvador 10 years ago: Desert. For the Huaman family - living in a home made of straw, shivering against the winds that blew from the foothills each night - there was nothing else except an endless vista of sand. The family had no electricity, no running water. "We suffered very much at the beginning," said the 31-year-old mother of eight. "Sometimes I thought I could not stand it. I thought of leaving.

After six months in Lima, the oddities of the Peruvian capital no longer fazed me: the cacophony of the car horns and alarms, the colorful micros teetering maddeningly along the congested streets, the persistence of the gray skies and misty mornings. I invited my parents to visit because I wanted them to experience firsthand the Lima I had come to love and hoped they would approve of my decision to live there. They came in late March, at the end of summer, when Lima is bathed in generous hours of sunshine.

A Brookhaven woman who knows her 14-year-old daughter is experimenting with alcohol and marijuana on Friday nights asked what a parent can do to break the cycle. "We went to high school in the '70s and drugs and alcohol were rampant," said the woman, who identified herself as Mary. "We know what our kids are up against. " "It's rougher today," said another parent. "It's MTV, sex and drugs," he said. "Today, when you're 14, you're 17. " In an effort to help their children, the parents attended a program on "Teenagers, Drugs and Alcohol" at the Mirmont CareUnit in Lima on Wednesday night to learn about the warning signs of drug use and what to do if their suspicions are confirmed.

Backyard vegetable gardens are scattered all over the lush, green, Philadelphia suburbs, but who would have thought that the tiny hamlet of Bryn Athyn, in eastern Montgomery County, could vie for lima bean capital of Pennsylvania? Well, perhaps not officially, but that is not due to a lack of trying on Tom Redmile's part. Like a regular Johnny Appleseed, this 84-year-old lima bean advocate has sown lima beans throughout Bryn Athyn's community gardens, and as far afield as Michigan, California, South Africa and Australia.

Finding a wrecked car isn't as easy as you might think. Ask Maria Lima. She's asked just about everyone she knows in her quest to find just the right wrecked car. Any old wreck won't do. Lima needs one that's twisted and mangled by an accident. Ideally, it should be one of those 3-foot-long pedal-operated toy cars. "I'll probably end up making it," the 16-year-old sighed after listing all the friends, relatives and schoolmates she had asked. The sophomore is the chairwoman of the Riverside High School chapter of Students Against Driving Drunk (SADD)

Norka Rosario Maldonado Moreno, 58, of Philadelphia, a respected Spanish teacher, died Monday, July 20, of cancer at her home. Born in Lima, Peru, to Sergio Maldonado and Delia Moreno, she moved to this country in 1988. Starting in 2002, Mrs. Maldonado taught Spanish at Friends Select School. She expected her students to speak Spanish during class. If they were caught speaking English, they got sprayed with a water bottle, and if they acted out, the students had to bring in sweets for the whole class the next day. All these measures only added to her popularity, said her husband, Craig Robbins.

His family was from Porto Alegre, Brazil, while hers was rooted in the Philly suburbs, but their life plans aligned: high school to college to law school - Temple University, where they met at a party in their second year - to the bar exam to work. When Sara first visited Fabian in Fairmount - she was friends with his roommate at the time - and found her law school buddy cooking gnocchi in a house crammed floor-to-ceiling with bookcases, she felt instantly at home. Fabian had a girlfriend, but the day after that relationship ended, he called Sara and invited her to a play.

AT A VIGIL HELD in Tremaine Rogers' honor last night at the Overbrook home where he lived, speakers not only talked about Tremaine, they talked to his peers. To the 40 or so youths gathered, Monsignor Wilfred Pashley, who will preside over Tremaine's funeral at St. Rosa of Lima today, said: "You have so much to look forward to, but you also have so much to fear, and so much anxiety in your lives. I don't understand it and I don't think you do, but God does. " Pastor Wayne Scott of New Bethany Baptist Church, who lives next door to Tremaine's house, said Tremaine was a very respectful young man. "One thing about him, when you talked to him, he listened," Scott said.

Lima, who pitched the Dodgers to their first playoff win in 16 years in 2004, was in full cardiac arrest when paramedics arrived at his Pasadena home early yesterday morning, police said in a statement.

As a driven young chef in my first major job 30 years ago, I did some crazy things in my search for authenticity. Perhaps my most notorious act was choosing to serve fresh, green fava beans for the opening of the restaurant, an event to which several hundred guests had been invited. I joined the staff in cleaning six bushels of favas, which involved opening the large, tough outer pods, removing the inner beans, blanching them, and then individually removing the skin from each bean.
