The Holly Gross Group says the producers of the movie picked it because they were looking for a "greeting-card perfect stone house.

PATRICK MURPHY survived being a security guard on the 700 Level of Veterans Stadium. He survived deployment in Bosnia and Baghdad with the Army's 82nd Airborne Division following the attacks of 9/11, and he survived the crash of Amtrak 188 last year. Now, as the under secretary of the United States Army - which is that military branch's second-highest civilian position - the Northeast Philadelphia native has the "awesome responsibility" of not only helping the country's soldiers to survive but to thrive.

ISSUE | MEDIA John E. McMullan set the Inquirer's course John E. McMullan, who died Monday in Cutler Bay, Fla., at age 95, was a key figure in the transition of the Philadelphia Inquirer from the Walter Annenberg days to today. He took over the scandal-plagued Inquirer on Jan. 1, 1970, at age 48 for Knight Newspapers and immediately improved it. Annenberg's Inquirer had a history of feuding with prominent figures he disliked, including gubernatorial candidate Milton J. Shapp.

ISSUE | BILL LYON TRIBUTE Fund-raising and Phillies I have read with great interest the five-part series by retired Philadelphia Inquirer sports columnist Bill Lyon as he bravely shared his journey with Alzheimer's - the most common type of dementia - and its effects on not only him but the people he loves. Alzheimer's, which affects 5.4 million Americans, is the nation's sixth-leading cause of death and the only one in the top 10 that has no cure, means of prevention, or way to slow it. As president and chief executive officer of the Delaware Valley Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association, I admire Bill's courage tremendously, so we have teamed up with the Inquirer's parent company, Philadelphia Media Network, and the Phillies to honor him with Alzheimer's Night at the Phillies Salutes Bill Lyon, Aug. 3, at Citizens Bank Park.

A national abortion rights group on Thursday criticized Philadelphia Media Network for refusing to publish a prominent digital ad on Philly.com. The National Partnership for Women and Families wanted to publicize its "Lies into Laws" campaign against restrictive state abortion laws with a one-day, $17,600 "home-page takeover" ad that would wrap around the top and both rails of Philly.com's landing page. The partnership declined the company's offer of an ad that would be randomly placed in a less prominent spot on the website, saying such an ad would have "reduced impact and visibility.

ISSUE | HEALTH CARE Hospital is doing fine The Philadelphia Inquirer ran an article that inaccurately described Lower Bucks Hospital as "now shuttered" ("Doctor charged with putting his patients at risk," Thursday). To the contrary, Lower Bucks Hospital, in Bristol Township, Bucks County, has made impressive progress in the past two years. Despite some challenging times, Lower Bucks Hospital never closed its doors. In 2012, Prime Healthcare became our new owner and invested nearly $25 million in facility and technology upgrades to better serve the community.

Missing Merl Last Sunday was the first without a crossword puzzle by the late and seriously missed Merl Reagle. Sunday morning didn't feel complete without one of his always delightful constructions. I hope The Inquirer adds another quality crossword in its place.
