ALLENTOWN - Having seen little action in the past 2 years, Chad Billingsley found himself in an unfamiliar position in more ways than one last night. Yet, he is keeping everything in perspective, including his timetable to get to Citizens Bank Park. "I haven't pitched under the lights in a while," said Billingsley, who made his first rehab start with the Triple A Lehigh Valley IronPigs at Coca-Cola Park. "In my rehab starts, I was always pitching during the day. "Overall, I was happy with it. My curveball was good and my fastball was loose.

After struggling in his season debut Wednesday, setup man Ken Giles stressed to Ryne Sandberg that it was a mechanical issue that plagued him, the Phillies manager said. The 24-year-old righthander has been adamant that the back tightness he felt late in spring training no longer ails him. "It could be early- season rust or problems. It could be cold weather. It's hard to tell," Sandberg said Thursday. "A power pitcher like him, we'll see, maybe it will take him a little bit longer to really get fine-tuned and to where he wants to be with the velocity and with the mechanics.

ALLENTOWN – After consecutive seasons lost to elbow operations, righthander Chad Billingsley wasn't too worried about the two home runs surrendered in his first rehab start for the Phillies triple-A Lehigh Valley IronPigs Friday at Coca-Cola Park. A one-time all-star with an 81-61 record and 3.65 ERA with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Billingsley signed with the Phillies as a free agent in the offseason, looking to rebound from Tommy John surgery in 2013 and then surgery last June to repair his right flexor tendon.

When it comes to redeveloping the magnificent site long occupied by Bancroft, a residential special-needs school, Haddonfield always knows what it doesn't want. "JUST SAY NO," a typical online post urged in 2010, as the borough planning board was considering a retirement-community proposal for the 19-acre Kings Highway property. Fierce public opposition scuttled that idea, and in 2013, a bitter grassroots battle ended with voters rejecting the Haddonfield Board of Education's $12.5 million proposal to buy the tract for public use. Bancroft has considered leaving the borough for a decade.

WORKING full time and being a full-time father is challenging work, but Robert Kersey Jr. was up to it. In fact, he loved nothing more than being a dad; it was his favorite job. He was not only a father to his three sons, but Robert also was a father figure to every member of his family, as well as his friends and neighborhood youths. Robert Kersey Jr., who rose from being a janitor to buying, rehabilitating and selling properties throughout Philadelphia, died March 18. He was 76. Robert was the second of three children born to Robert Kersey Sr. and Lavinia Kersey.

They came with paint brushes, steel wool, and brawn. But what really got to Robert Sheppard - what made him cry in front of his wife for the first time in almost never - had to be the love. A dozen Samaritans soldiered into Sheppard's Oxford Circle rowhouse Sunday and attacked the shabby abode with fixer-upper resolve. Sheppard and his wife were barely making it in blue-collar retirement; the workers hoped this kindness would help. The 82-year-old Korean War veteran watched the workers and smiled, even while drawing breath from the oxygen tank that has made him feel less and less like the man he once was. He cracked jokes about the Eagles, about the time he ruined his knees by falling two decks on a Navy ship, and how the family never really took vacations and that was all right.

It's not officially over for Cliff Lee. All he needs is a miracle, and he could be back throwing on a mound near you before the end of the summer. Even he concedes that is unlikely. "It's fairly likely it will remain the same," the Phillies lefthander said Monday at Bright House Field after the team placed him on the 60-day disabled list and announced that he will attempt a third rehab of his aching left elbow. Surgery has been recommended, but that would end Lee's season and tenure with the Phillies.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - On each of the last two mornings when Phillies pitchers gathered to play catch, Cliff Lee was absent. The discomfort in his pitching elbow had progressively worsened, so the 36-year-old lefthander weighed his options. Late Monday afternoon, the Phillies announced that Lee will try for a third time to non-surgically rehabilitate the tear in his common flexor tendon. Season-ending surgery, not recommended last summer, was endorsed by doctors after the latest setback.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - The latest news on Cliff Lee wasn't really news, in a way, because nothing has been new regarding the lefthander's $120 million arm in the last 10 months. Lee has had a sore elbow since last May, when the pain was enough to cause him trouble when he turned a door knob. He's had a sore elbow since grabbing at it during his last regular-season start in Washington on the last night of July, hours after baseball's trade deadline. He's rested it. He's rehabbed it. Twice.

When developer Ken Weinstein meets with prospective tenants for his commercial buildings, he says, the first question they ask is "about the condition of Germantown," the historic Northwest Philadelphia neighborhood where decades of disinvestment continue to take a toll on housing. Weinstein, whose focus as a commercial redeveloper makes him acutely aware how blighted blocks can affect nearby businesses, said Monday that he was launching "Jumpstart Germantown," an effort to push residential redevelopment "to where it should be. " The plan, expected to get underway in April, is to "unleash a force of small residential developers to renovate properties throughout the neighborhood," he said.
