Every time Jesse Wenk looks at the quarter-inch-wide cracks in his walls, he's reminded of it. Every time he sees that his front steps have pulled farther away from his Roxborough home, he can't escape it. Wenk's house on Pensdale Street near Freeland Avenue is sinking. Unbeknown to Wenk, his house, which dates from the 1920s, was built on a former pharmaceutical company dump that was covered over with ash. The ash is now shifting, causing his house to sink. Before long he will have to move.

Dozens of businesses on the site of the proposed Center City convention center still face an uncertain future, despite Gov. Thornburgh's decision this week to release $1.9 million in state relocation funds. City Redevelopment Authority officials said yesterday that the money released by Thornburgh on Wednesday would be used to meet existing commitments to 21 businesses that have already moved or are in the process of moving. The $1.9 million was not sufficient to assist dozens of other businesses that have so far been unable to make relocation plans, officials said.

Ardmore residents spoke out Monday against a proposed move by the Narberth Ambulance Corps to Ardmore Avenue, saying it would detract from the residential character of their neighborhood and put the paramedics in an area too congested to allow quick emergency responses. "I'm happy for them to move there, because if I ever get sick, they can come and get me, but I pity the rest of the people in the township," said Alison Eachus, who lives across the street from the proposed site in the 100 block.
