Atlantic City's history is a stupendous symphony of superlatives, a tale of how "America's Queen of Resorts" wowed the masses with the most, the best, the greatest. There's also . . . the Boardwalk Hall Pipe Organ. "It's the world's largest musical instrument," organ scholar, builder, and showman Steven Ball declares. "The sonic Mount Rushmore," says Ball, whose official title is organist and director of outreach for the Historic Organ Restoration Committee Inc. "It was designed to be a library of all sound.

Making good blue cheese isn't easy. After a first batch of beginner's luck, Amos Miller at Misty Creek Dairy in Leola, Pa., spent nearly two years flailing at subsequent blues that "even the pigs wouldn't eat. " Thankfully, with the help of a consultant and some pristine raw milk from Eli Esh's Millwood Springs Organic in Willow Street, he is now making a blue under Millwood's name that has become one of the best examples in Pennsylvania....

Pope Francis' visit to Philadelphia is promised to be the city's largest event in decades, but amid severe security and transit restrictions, organizers launched an effort Wednesday to ensure that the expected crowds show up. The "I'll Be There!" campaign was announced by the World Meeting of Families 2015 at a news conference/pep rally outside Jack's Firehouse restaurant in Fairmount. Mayor Nutter denied that the new push was a response to anticipated drop-off in attendance, though he did say hotel rooms are still available for the weekend.

JOINT PRACTICES are "organized chaos," Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins said after the first of the three days of welcoming the Baltimore Ravens to NovaCare, in advance of Saturday's preseason game. "Both teams are teetering on being under control, but out of control at the same time. It's real thin ice, but I think cooler heads prevail. We're all professionals. We're out here trying to compete. I think we all have that understanding and mutual respect for each other, and we're out here just trying to get work done.

On Thursday, 4,500 people dressed in white, having paid for the privilege of lugging their own tables, chairs, and picnic dinners, will gather at an as-yet-undisclosed location in Philadelphia, then ceremoniously wave their napkins and share a meal. It's the fourth annual Diner en Blanc, Philadelphia - a radical act of public dining that has been polarizing in a city where the preferred alfresco meal is still a cheesesteak. Yet, 30,000 people have joined a wait-list (those who previously attended or were invited get first dibs)

Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust, owner of Exton Square Mall in Chester County, plans to demolish the site's Kmart building and replace it with a large-format organic grocery store. PREIT chief executive Joseph Coradino told analysts in a conference call Wednesday that the grocer would be named in the coming days. A lease for 55,000 square feet has been executed, he said. Philadelphia-based PREIT also has identified a dine-in movie theater and a bowling-and-entertainment center as prospective tenants for the former site of a 118,000-square-foot J.C. Penney Co. store at Exton Square, Coradino said.

TODAY, I WILL NOT need to stop at the cemetery to visit the grave of my little girl. Nor will I have to escort her to dialysis appointments, emotionally draining visits to the ER, or endure any long hospital stays. It was not long ago, however, when I feared those excursions would become a routine and I was terrified I'd eventually be spending a good deal of my time grieving for my daughter in a cemetery. But today, instead of walking into a quiet, lifeless house after work, I will enter a home full of love and be greeted by my precious child who was never supposed to live.

ONE OF Sachi Mallach's main characteristics was optimism. And it was catching. Optimism gave Sachi the spirit and drive to make a successful career in fundraising and development for the many educational and charitable organizations she worked for over the years. And there was little doubt that same optimism infected those she dealt with, encouraging them to believe in her and the mission to which she dedicated her life. Sachiko Suzanne Mallach died July 1 after a five-year battle with cancer.

The Kenney campaign is looking for a few good community organizers. Or, to be more accurate, a few good community organizers-to-be. "We want to have anchors in all parts of the city," said Lauren Hitt, spokeswoman for Philadelphia Democratic mayoral candidate Jim Kenney. "We want people who believe in Jim or who believe in their community or who just want a voice in city government. " To that end - and to help register new voters - the campaign is looking for volunteers in its "Summer Organizing Fellowship for Jim Kenney.
