Phillies righthander Curt Schilling pitched five shutout innings yesterday at Jack Murphy Stadium. The fact that the stands were empty, of course, means little here. But the fact the batting cage was up and the lineup Schilling faced consisted solely of Randy Ready and Tony Longmire confirmed that, yes, it was only a simulated game. Only a simulated game. And, in its own way, the biggest game Schilling had pitched since his electrifying performance in Game 5 of the 1993 World Series.

Phillies righthander Vicente Padilla had been scheduled to return to the Phillies rotation on Friday in Boston. If everything went well last night in Moosic, Pa., that is. It appears it didn't.

He will be evaluated today. There was no other information available, and it was not clear how the soreness might affect his return.

Phoenix Suns forward Charles Barkley said critics of his summer work ethic are off base and there is no reason for him to apologize for having some fun while spending the offseason in Philadelphia. Barkley, who thought about retiring all of last season because of chronic back trouble, said he worked hard in the offseason, but also had some fun. "I didn't neglect my rehab," Barkley said yesterday. "I told them I was going to Philadelphia and do it, and that was the final decision.

At first it seemed like a great way to promote low- and moderate-income housing: Float millions of dollars in bonds, use the money to make low-interest loans to small private developers and community non-profit groups, then make sure they keep the rents low, from $250 to $350 for a two-bedroom apartment. The goal: to rehab 1,000 properties of one to four units within three years. But 14 months later the official in charge of the Redevelopment Authority's $35 million Small Rental Properties Program admits, "I had no idea it was so complicated.

Mike Grace ranked among the National League leaders in wins, winning percentage and opponents' batting average against when he was placed on the disabled list with shoulder problems on June 7 last year. Based on the way he pitched in his first rehab start for Double A Reading against Trenton last night, there is a chance he could be activated before the first anniversary of that dark day a week from Saturday. Grace, who was on a pitch count, went four innings and threw 58 pitches, 33 for strikes.

Mayor Kenney wants Washington to take another look at renovation plans for the old Family Court building after they were rejected by federal officials. Kenney has written to Interior Secretary Sally Jewell, asking to meet with her after a subsidiary agency's decision not to qualify the project for tax breaks under a historic preservation program. The request comes as the developer Peebles Corp. approaches its deadline to have permits and funding in place to convert the city-owned building at 1801 Vine St. into a hotel about two years after it was awarded the job. "The mayor has reached out to the Secretary of the Interior," Kenney spokeswoman Ajeenah Amir said in an email Wednesday.

Aaron Altherr is on his way back. The 25-year-old Phillies outfielder, who injured his left wrist when diving for a ball in spring training, began taking live batting practice and could begin a minor-league rehab assignment next week. The damage was severe, as the sheath that holds the wrist tendon in place was torn. The Phillies originally said that Altherr, who has a history of wrist problems, would miss four to six months after surgery on March 9. If he spends the maximum 20 days on his rehab assignment, his recovery time will fall around the five-month mark.

The shipping container, the kind one sees on a freight train, appears out of place, sitting alone on the lawn next to a Chester County church, on a quiet stretch of road facing green open fields. But it will fit right in with other containers as the final piece of a community center for orphans and the families who care for them in a town in South Africa. "It'll be wonderful to see kids using this," said Cammy Brantzeg, a church member who is leading the makeover project with her husband, Tony, both of whom were trained as actuaries and have no professional construction experience.

READING - Wednesday night did not exactly begin the way Vince Velasquez had planned. The Phillies pitcher forgot to retrieve his toll ticket when entering the Pennsylvania Turnpike en route to Reading for a rehab start. He was required upon exiting to pay the maximum fee. Velasquez then allowed a home run to the first batter he faced at double-A Reading's FirstEnergy Stadium. It was a frustrating start, but Velasquez recovered. The righthander gave up just one more hit and threw 76 pitches in five innings of a 4-1 win against Akron.

READING - Phillies starter Vince Velasquez learned two things on his rehab trip to Reading on Wednesday. One, was that it went well out there on the mound. He threw 76 pitches in five innings and felt no discomfort in his previously strained right biceps. The second lesson involved the toll policy of the Pennsylvania Turnpike. Those without E-Z pass must get a ticket upon entering. Velasquez, a California native who came up through the Astros organization, doesn't have E-Z pass, didn't get a ticket and now has to pay nearly twice as much.

Some insomniacs count sheep. Lori Quintavalle used to count treatment centers. Her son Alec, now 24, had cycled through at least 10 alcohol-and-drug rehabs. He'd stay clean while in a program, but once he was out for a week or two, he's relapse. At one point, he slept in his car in a Walmart parking lot in Florida; other times, he'd text Quintavalle, begging for money. More than once, he overdosed; only a shot of Narcan dragged him back from death. Keriann Meyers was a homeroom mom who planned rollicking kindergarten birthday parties and made chocolate chip cookies dipped in crumbled Heath bars.

Clarke said he wanted to "expeditiously change neighborhoods. " "Not little, rehab four or five houses at a time," he said.
