Jon and Alexis Sherman are expecting their first baby, and after heavy rains earlier this year, they had to hurry to waterproof and finish their basement in advance of the little one's arrival. "We bought the house as our first home, and we didn't want to overstretch ourselves," said Jon Sherman, a filmmaker at two companies in Philadelphia - Video City, of which he is president, and Expo Films, which he co-founded. (Alexis Sherman is assistant director of human resources at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine.)

When Haifa Aldorasi was in the sixth grade, she noticed that her class used a lot of paper, and that flew in the face of her environmental values. She had a flash of an idea when her class took a field trip to Colonial Plantation in Ridley Creek State Park. There she learned that the American colonists made paper using linen and cotton rags. What followed was two years of research and experimentation with fabrics, plants and vegetables to create a wood- and chemical-free paper.

AS I WAS WATCHING the news the other day, I saw two people being interviewed by reporters - Moammar Gadhafi and Charlie Sheen. After the interviews, I started thinking about these two characters, and I came to the conclusion that these two are cut from the same mold. They are both in denial about the truth going on around them. They need to put these two clowns in a hospital or crazy house. Gregory Betancourt Philadelphia

THE ENORMITY of it catches you off guard. Even though you walk into the room knowing what you're there to see, visualizing a 9-foot effigy is different from actually standing next to one. Currently a few hundred-pound mixture of clay and foam dominating a second-floor Fishtown studio, the much-anticipated statue of late Philadelphia boxing icon Smokin' Joe Frazier is about 6 months from completion. After 4 months, the mold has certainly taken shape, but sculptor Stephen Layne expects to take time through September to accentuate features such as the gloves and shoes and otherwise fine-tune the project.

When Amy Schlein Kaufman steps into Lowell Elementary School in Philadelphia's Olney section, her eyes water, her nose runs, and the sneezing begins. After years of teaching there, she is accustomed to carrying tissues. But with respiratory ailments affecting as many as 10 Lowell teachers, she worries that the century-old building may simply be unhealthy. A former colleague at Lowell, art teacher Joyce Harris, shares that concern. Last school year, Harris, 48, said she felt sick almost every day on the job - something she blames on "black mold" that was found in a storage area next to her basement classroom just as the year ended.

WEST CHESTER After 14 months of intermittent closures due to a kitchen fire and mold problems, Chester County's largest senior center is about to get a financial hand from the county.

Teachers and officials from the William Penn School District continue to work on finding reasons why a mystery illness has plagued the Green Avenue annex of Penn Wood High School. Susan Shubert, the William Penn Education Association's grievance chairwoman, said the teachers met Wednesday with officials from the district's cleaning service, ServiceMaster, and Scott Environmental Testing Inc., a firm the district hired in December to test the site. Scott issued a report earlier this month that said a mold, sporobolomyces, was found in the building at a level at least four times higher than is considered acceptable by health officials.
