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.

"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.

Sadie, a 10-year-old labradoodle, does not look like a typical prop for occupational therapy. But that's what she became when Ruth Zahn brought the friendly dog recently to visit her "grandma," 90-year-old Emma Zahn, who was at Phoebe Allentown for rehabilitation after a stroke. Phoebe Ministries, which operates an array of services for the elderly, created an unusual rehab program for people with dementia or other cognitive impairment.

IT'S ONE OF the many inequities in our society: Women get paid 79 percent of what men make, but, especially in TV and R-rated movies, they have to remove 100 percent of their clothes. (Ironically, in porn, the more allegedly exploitative the entertainment, the women get paid more than the men.) On The Late Show with James Corden , the issue was raised again Monday night when Game of Thrones Queen of Dragons Daenerys Targaryen (non-blonde Emilia Clarke ) noted that while viewers have seen her naked, the same can't be said of her male co-stars.

When Joel Embiid made his way into the locker room before the 76ers faced the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday, he casually walked to his locker and sat on the undersize stool. Just seconds later, Jerami Grant made his way from his locker spot to Embiid and, without saying a word, wrapped his arms around Embiid's massive shoulders and gave him a hug. It was like a kid seeing his father after a long time away. Embiid reached up and patted one of Grant's arms and the two shared a hearty laugh.

ISSUE | ADDICTION Rehab takes time Based on my experience as a volunteer at a drug/alcohol rehabilitation facility, "sober homes" play a critical role for many patients in their recovery journey (" 'Sober house' can be an asset in a community," Jan. 27). Patients invested 30 (usually unpaid) days away from their jobs and families and thousands of dollars because their alcohol/drug use was past the point of "just say no. " They had lost power over their substance use, and it was destroying every important relationship in their lives.

Ken Weinstein wasn't sure how well the idea of gathering and training a force of residential developers to recycle housing in Germantown would play to the neighborhood. Nor was the developer certain that he could interest enough people in his idea, which included a revolving loan fund of $2 million to get Jumpstart Germantown off the ground. Since he announced his plan in March, Weinstein has taken 108 "mentoring" applications from experienced and would-be developers around the area, and 75 of them have completed nine-plus hours of training with experts in the field.
