"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.

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.

Rita Swan's 16-month-old son, Matthew, was dying of meningitis in the family's Michigan home in 1977. Swan never called a doctor. Instead, as Matthew screamed in pain, Swan and her husband, then Christian Scientists, who eschew medical help, summoned church healers to pray over the boy. He was sick, they said, because the Swans lacked sufficient faith in God. When nothing changed, maternal instinct overwhelmed piety, and Swan rushed Matthew to...

"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.

THERE ARE a lot of things that are tough to judge from practice. Here's one that isn't: Jordan Matthews and Sam Bradford have developed some serious chemistry over the first week-and-a-half of Eagles training camp, and everybody at the NovaCare Complex will testify. Nolan Carroll: "He's hungry, man. " Byron Maxwell: "He definitely looks like he's gotten bigger. " Bradford: "I think that guy catches more footballs than anybody I've ever seen. " If you can purchase stock in Matthews, the Eagles' second-year receiver, do it before the start of the regular season.

Almost every Eagle had trickled inside the NovaCare Complex on Monday afternoon, but Jordan Matthews wasn't one of them. The second-year wide receiver had stayed behind to work with tight end Zach Ertz, the two jogging routes behind large tackling dummies to practice catching passes in traffic. Then they moved to the JUGS machine, and Matthews stabbed balls out of the air before tossing them into a gray bin to his right. It was only the second day of his second professional training camp, but Matthews stayed late to polish the one skill he sees as a common thread between the NFL's best receivers.

THE EAGLES released running back Matthew Tucker, who showed power and speed in the 2014 preseason, with a "nonfootball injury" designation. Tucker played in two games in 2013 as an undrafted rookie, then spent last season on the practice squad. His release gives clarity to recent reports that the Eagles are going to sign former Villanova running back Kevin Monangai, though that signing has not been announced. - Les Bowen

JORDAN MATTHEWS was ticked. He had run the sideline pass route cleanly, but the ball arrived a little late and a little high, and by the time he jumped and extended all of his 6-3 frame to haul it in, a defensive back was upon him and there was no room to run. And thus, no first down. So, as Matthews ran from the field, the sound of his frustration carried out across the practice fields of the NovaCare Complex. Carried, literally, into the streets. "That's nothing," he said after the second day of minicamp had come to an end. "That's just competing.

SOMETIMES IT doesn't matter nearly as much where you came from as how far you believe your talent, will and dreams can take you. Even if you're from Scranton and determined at a young age that what you wanted most of all was to become a big-time golfer. Welcome to the journey according to Temple's Brandon Matthews. Usually, if the PGA Tour is the carrot you're chasing, the best route is to play for a program that's south of the Mason-Dixon Line, which at least allows you to work on your game year-round.

For Temple's Brandon Matthews, improvement in his short game and his putting, which leads to a reduction in the pressure he puts on other parts of his game, has resulted in better finishes this season. Going into Sunday's start of the American Athletic Conference golf championships, the 6-foot-4 junior has won three tournaments (all in succession), tied for second, and tied for third. That success follows his victory in December in the prestigious Dixie Amateur at Coral Springs, Fla. "I may not be hitting it the absolute best I can," Matthews said earlier this week, "but my up-and-downs have been very, very good.

As eternal as Bach's St. Matthew Passion seems, it changes significantly over time, accommodating each new generation's artistic relationship with the music - and then some. What unfolded at Verizon Hall on Wednesday bore surface resemblance to the St. Matthew Passion Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducted with the Philadelphia Orchestra two years ago, with some of the same soloists and a similar stage setup, a cruciform platform creating a runway that divided the orchestra. Yet the experience was much more evolved, building on 2013 and perhaps emboldened by the trend toward externalizing Bach's drama with physical action.
