At 9:30 a.m. Friday, Nina Innarella arrived for her set - short in the back, curled on top and brushed back on the sides. Called a shingle, it's the same style she's been getting for years. Many years. No scrunging, no crimping, no mousse for Nina. She insists on her regular shampooing, rollers and set - with at least 20 minutes under the dryer. So she'll have plenty of time to gossip. Innarella and her 20 or so friends are what the Venus Beauty School in Sharon Hill calls the regulars - women, most of them far north of 60, who never miss their Friday morning trip to Venus.

In a month-and-a-half crime spree, Antonio Carl Dorman broke into 10 Delaware County homes, threatened residents with a gun, stole money and jewelry and raped a woman. Yesterday, the 22-year-old Sharon Hill man was sentenced to 18 to 40 years in prison for his crimes. He had pleaded guilty before Judge Anthony R. Semeraro to rape, burglary and related charges. The sentence was part of a negotiated plea reached with the District Attorney's Office. Dorman accepted the plea on the advice of his attorney, public defender Spiros E. Angelos, who said his client could have faced a much stiffer jail sentence if convicted of the charges against him. After being arrested Feb. 12 outside Academy Park High School in Sharon Hill, Dorman gave police a detailed confession, admitting to a series of crimes in January and February in Sharon Hill, Folcroft, Glenolden and Upper Darby.

As a business development team, the "Shadow Crew" was effective, federal prosecutors said: One nighttime visit from the crew, and nonunion contractors reluctant to hire union ironworkers would change their minds and hire a few. Maybe, as charged in a superseding federal indictment released Wednesday, they were convinced by beatings, arson, and vandalism. Particularly persuasive, the indictment said, were anchor bolts smashed with sledgehammers and cranes that suddenly didn't work, along with the resulting costs and delays.

JIM VANKOSKI is looking for a site for more eyes. He's the curator of the Mickey Vernon Sports Museum, a place that's as special as the man it's named after. But unless something happens very soon, Saturday will be the museum's last day as it's housed in the soon-to-be-renovated Granite Run Mall. "We have no money and no political connections and that's a bad combination," said Vankoski. What they do have is a rich collection of Delaware County sports memorabilia that needs a new home.

Jihad Ward was determined to make something of himself in football, even if it meant traversing the streets and waterways of New York via bus, subway, and ferry to get from his dorm to the practice field to the classroom at Globe Institute of Technology. Ward, a North Philadelphia native who starred at Bok, followed that grueling schedule for two football seasons and four hours or more of travel per day. It might have been difficult to stay positive, especially since he didn't always have enough money for carfare and had to skip a meal every once in a while.
