Four years ago, on the day before their 15th birthday, Marissa Hacker was heartbroken to find her autistic twin brother, Matthew, crying, because, he said, no one wanted to be his friend. Marissa put her arms around him and told him not to worry. She was going to start a group, and he would have lots of friends. "I always had the idea, but that was the driving force," said Marissa, now 18, a Voorhees resident and Stockton University student. "I always had the spark, but that lit the spark.

Just when "Another World" viewers thought Mac and Rachel Cory (played by Douglass Watson and Victoria Wyndham) were settling into contented marital bliss, wouldn't you know it - Rachel's former lover Mitch Blake would just pop back into the story line. Re-creating the role of Mitch is William Gray Espy, who portrayed Mitch from October 1979 until March 1982. When the audience last saw Mitch, he was being carted off to jail after his attempt to kidnap his and Rachel's then 1-year-old son, Matthew.

Just about every mother gives herself to her children, but Jennifer Iannone can say she literally gave a piece of herself to her son. And that act has saved her baby's life. Iannone, 26, of Newark, Del., donated a piece of her liver yesterday to her 3-month-old son Matthew, who has a rare blood clotting disorder. "She said it would only increase the bond between them," said her husband, Jason. Dr. Stephen Dunn and Dr. Adele Casas, both transplant surgeons at St. Christopher's, performed six hours of surgery yesterday morning to remove the left lateral segment of Iannone's liver.

"Harrowing. " That was how Richard Traa described the two-day kidnapping of his 16-year- old son, Matthew. In an interview yesterday, Traa said he received a telephone call at home about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday from a man federal prosecutors say was James A. Howard, 38, a Resorts Casino Hotel cashier. Traa said he listened in disbelief. "He wasn't screaming or demanding. He just said he had my son and said he didn't want to hurt Matthew. He said he wanted the money and said he thought we could make a trade.

Pennsylvania state police suggested Monday that 21-year-old Matthew R. Royer, missing since leaving Rhode Island on Thursday, might have decided on his own to detour from returning to his Montgomery County home. "While it may be a voluntary move on Matthew's part, we are still expending all resources in this investigation to locate Matthew," said Trooper Morgan Crummy, a spokeswoman at the Skippack barracks. As that possibility took shape, his mother made a tearful plea for her son to contact his parents.

WHEN THEY approached Susie and Brent Celek about getting involved in trying to build a Miracle Field in Northampton Township, a safe, smooth baseball surface for kids in wheelchairs, it felt like deja vu, all over again. "I grew up in Greentown, Ohio," Susie said. "On a street with five boys, four of them named Matthew. One of them was in a wheelchair, paralyzed from the waist down. "My brother Matt built obstacle courses and other games for us to play. And he always designed them so that Matthew could play, too. He'd choose the sides for balance, matched the young kids with the older kids.

Chris Matthews looks, at first, drained of the frenetic energy that sparks so much friction on his MSNBC show, Hardball . Slouching on a small couch in a tiny office at NBC's New York headquarters, his striped tie pulled down from the collar of his blue Oxford shirt, Matthews looks like a 70-year-old Catholic schoolboy, bored with class until his favorite topic comes up.

THIS WAS DOUG Pederson in March when asked about using wide receiver Jordan Matthews less in the slot and more on the outside: "I think he can play outside. I'm going to look at him outside as we go through this spring. With his skill set, I think he can play both (inside and outside). " This was Pederson Friday when asked the same question about Matthews: "Jordan, again, he's been good on the outside. (But) he's better inside, because he's got that big body and he knows how to sort of use it in space.

Jordan Matthews was the Eagles receiver with the lowest percentage of dropped passes last season, which, given his competition for that distinction, is a bit like being the least aromatic elephant in the circus. Pretty much, they all stunk. Still, it was better to be Matthews, who, according to sportingcharts.com, had just five drops in 128 targeted passes. Defining a drop isn't that easy, but guys like Riley Cooper, Nelson Agholor, and Josh Huff nearly doubled Matthews' percentage, so it's a reasonable measure to adopt.

Jordan Matthews last took part in an Eagles practice almost four months ago. There was uncertainty about who would coach the Eagles, who would play quarterback, and even how he would be used. The Eagles return to the practice field this week for voluntary minicamp with answers to all those questions. New coach Doug Pederson will lead his team in drills for the first time on Tuesday. Sam Bradford is the starting quarterback after re-signing with the team before free agency. He will participate in his first spring practice since 2013, one month after hosting Matthews and Zach Ertz at his home in Oklahoma.

Grandchildren For nearly 10 years, Aleks Martray has led Philadelphia's Grandchildren in an acoustic-electronic mix of highly orchestrated, handily arranged folk-pop music. He's like James Bond film composer John Barry, but without a martini-soaked spy to guide him. Grandchildren's layered, cosmopolitan sound - on albums such as Everlasting (2010), Golden Age (2013), and, most grandly, Zuni (2015) - is so richly dramatic, you keep expecting a film to accompany the soundtracky music.
