It had been a while since Garry Kelly had played in a real basketball game. Like since the end of the regular season. Kelly had been ruled academically ineligible on the final game of the regular season for Lower Merion and was distracted during and after the season with other personal problems. But Kelly showed no signs of mental anguish nor basketball rust on Thursday night in his first hoops game of meaning since late February. Kelly made his mark playing for Dave Foody's Del-Val Cadets in a first- round match-up against the Sonny Hill Senior team in the single-elimination Donofrio Basketball Classic at Conshohocken.

There has been a quiet automotive revolution in progress for sometime, and some clear winners and losers are beginning to emerge. The revolution in car rustproofing - as evidenced by the automakers' recent rush to increase perforation warranties - leaves the automobile buyer an obvious winner. And anyone who has ever been subjected to the considerable cost of repairing a rust-out on his or her car knows just how a big a win that is. Conversely, that considerable improvement in corrosion protection, and the resultant warranties provided by the carmakers, is not such good news for aftermarket car-care firms that specialize in rust prevention.

Question: I have a plowing company near the Poconos. Last winter while plowing, I left rust streaks on two properties. Though they are not very noticeable, they are noticeable. Do you have any ideas or solutions to removing rust from concrete? We have tried acid, and CLR (cut and straight). I have powerwashed the streaks on one property on my own driveway, but all I did was leave clean streaks where I powerwashed. Answer: Jelmar's CLR cleaner does a great job removing rust stains from bathroom porcelain and tile, but I'd never tried it on concrete.

The rusting, radarless ash ship Khian Sea, limping back toward Philadelphia after her 17-month sea odyssey of rejection, dropped anchor off the Delaware Coast this morning, where she might remain for a day or two. "It's probably found a home," remarked Richard Belote, who, from a watchtower in Cape Henlopen State Park, maintains radio contact with cargo ships entering the Delaware Bay. Though the privately owned ship, loaded with 15,000 tons...

After going three months between NHL starts, Vincent Riendeau can be certain his next chance will come a lot sooner. Riendeau stopped 29 shots last night in his first game since Oct. 25, and the Boston Bruins beat the slumping Washington Capitals, 3-1, in Landover, Md. While Riendeau didn't exactly make a dozen sprawling saves, he did find a way to keep the puck out of the net. "He just lets the puck hit him. That's all he does," Boston coach...

It was an optional practice, and Allen Iverson was an eager participant. That certainly shows Iverson's willingness to return to the court. Regardless of his well-publicized views of practice, Iverson knew he needed the work yesterday to shake off some serious rust. After the workout at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, Iverson and Sixers coach Randy Ayers proclaimed the four-time all-star ready to return for tonight's game at the Wachovia Center against the Milwaukee Bucks.

This is the time of the year when high school baseball teams would like to be hitting their midseason strides. Hitters should have their timing down by now and pitchers should be seasoned and in form. But the wet weather the last two weeks has started rusting the swings and the wings. Instead of planning for the stretch run, coaches now are scrambling to reschedule games and find gymnasium time in a desperate attempt to keep rust to a minimum. "This kind of weather is certainly not good for us," Conestoga coach Tom Keyser said.

They were worried about being as rusty as a junkyard clunker, given their long layoff. And they were worried about their feisty opponents, a bunch of fired-up upstarts who had just pulled the upset heard round the NHL. And they were worried about that hot goalie who was going to face them. And they were worried about being worried. Pushed by such feelings of dread, the Montreal Canadiens beat the daylights out of the New York Islanders, 4-1, in Game 1 of the Wales Conference finals yesterday afternoon.

Our favorite fall accessories are likely to match Mother Nature's fiery foliage this year. The trendlet Rust, along with its earthy cousins - burnt orange, terra-cotta, and muddy mustard - are spicing up totes, statement jewelry, scarves, and, yes, microsuede hot pants. Where's it come from? In the early 19th century, wealthy women, in an attempt to re-create the ancient Egyptian aesthetic, rocked billowy, ivory day dresses. But their shoes, belts, and shawls were different shades of terra-cotta - to mimic the look of the desert terrain.

A couple of responses came in recently to a question about taking care of rust on a refrigerator at the Shore, and I thought I'd share, since summer is almost upon us. From Nate Lentz, who, with 40 years' experience in the field, says "whenever I see the word ‘rust,' my eyes light up": "A salt environment is very corrosive to all metals, paints, and the like. Any rust must be removed completely; otherwise, it will continue to grow under any protective coatings. " Lentz suggests that once the rust is removed completely, the refrigerator should be polished periodically.

IF THE TYPICAL American voter has anything to say in 2015, it's this: The electorate is sick and tired of conventional, blow-dried, say-anything-to-get-elected career politicians. In that case, America, we may have just found your dream candidate. And he's running for the U.S. Senate from Pennsylvania. John Fetterman is what a very different kind of nonpolitican named Donald Trump might call "Huuuuge. " As in, NFL nose-guard-type huge: 6-8, 350 pounds, burly tattooed arms yearning to break free from his trademark black work shirt.

YESTERDAY WAS officially "hey, don't worry, it's just preseason" day down at the NovaCare Complex. You could see this one coming. Reporters spent Saturday night and Sunday exclaiming over Sam Bradford's perfect evening and the Eagles' 38.3 points per preseason game offensive juggernaut. By yesterday, as the fan base started tuning up its tailgating fleet for Santa Clara and Super Bowl 50, it was time to balance the scales and delve into perceived problems. But the starters began the day with a full two-week gap yawning between them and the season opener, Sept.

Natalie Kucowski called it a reward. A reward for the practices full of quickness drills to help the St. Basil basketball team keep its legs. A reward for the running sessions to stay in shape. The Panthers stood at midcourt at Upper Dublin to get their District 1 Class AA championship medals and raise the trophy. Their tedious work over the past two weeks had paid off. St. Basil claimed its third straight district title and gave coach Terry Mancini his 300th win by defeating New Hope-Solebury, 45-31.

To the casual eye, the SS United States is a floating heap of rust and peeling paint. To Jim Pollin, it is a testament to the greatness of its namesake. Standing at the deck of the ship's stern Tuesday morning, Pollin held an oversize check - and blinked away tears - as he announced his donation of $220,000. With that gift, he bought himself a 61,200-pound propeller. "I fell in love with the ship when I saw it from a river cruise," said Pollin, founder of travel management firm Pollin Group.

After the game, Andy Rust walked to the crowd of Haddon Township fans and high-fived and hugged parents and relatives of himself and his teammates. The junior guard had come off the bench in the first quarter, and with his team down by four points, he hit three shots from behind the three-point arc to propel his team on a 9-0 run that gave the host Hawks a five-point lead. Haddon Township ended up defeating Cherry Hill West, 53-49, Friday evening in boys' basketball. Rust led all players with 21 points and said he had never played a game as good as that on the varsity level.

FOR COACH Fran Dunphy and the Temple Owls, it's not as much about how you start but how you finish. Entering last night's home game with Saint Joseph's, the Owls (4-3) were hoping to get revenge after their one-point loss to the Hawks in February. Temple's response was a late second-half surge to beat their Big 5 rival, 77-69. "We did a real good job down the stretch today," Dunphy said. "There's no doubt about it: We are still a work in progress and we need to continue to understand what it's going to take.

SAN FRANCISCO - Carlos Ruiz took part in his daily pregame routine during batting practice at AT&T Park yesterday. He fielded ground balls at third base alongside Michael Young. But for the second time in the last five games, Ruiz did not start behind the plate when the Phillies took the field later in the night to take on the San Francisco Giants. Erik Kratz started at catcher in place of Ruiz, who is hitting .100 (2-for-20) since returning from his 25-game suspension. Over the weekend, Ruiz said he's still attempting to get into a comfort zone at the plate after his near monthlong absence.

LAS VEGAS - Floyd Mayweather Jr. fought as if he had never left the ring, coming back from a year's absence Saturday night to win a unanimous, 12-round decision over Robert Guerrero in their welterweight title fight. Mayweather was masterful at times, landing thudding right hands and bloodying Guerrero's face in a performance that mimicked some of his best fights. Mayweather (44-0) hurt Guerrero (31-2-1) on several occasions, including a series of right hands near the end of the eighth round that buckled Guerrero's knees.
