Success - and how to achieve it - was on the mind of Beverly Champion Hendrix last week as she prepared to give an address at her alma mater, Henderson High School in West Chester.

Instead of traversing a red carpet with longtime girlfriend Oprah Winfrey, Stedman Graham trekked to a hot West Philadelphia classroom yesterday to share with high school students his secrets to success.

"When suddenly you seem to lose all you thought you had gained, do not despair . . . don't say to yourself, 'All is lost. I have to start over again.' "This is not true. What you have gained, you have gained. Try to think about it instead as being pulled off the road for a while. When you return to the road, you return to the place where you left, not to where you started. " So says Henri Nouwen, the late Catholic priest, in a journal he kept during a difficult, anguished period of his life.

It sometimes happens to an actor that he appears in a play, a movie, even a single television show - and it absolutely changes his life. That's the way it happened to Morgan Freeman. Once he hit the screen in "Street Smart" as Fast Black, the brutal pimp who terrorizes everyone around him, nothing has quite been the same. "Well," he said on the telephone from his Manhattan apartment, "New York magazine came by today, and it's People tomorrow. I'm really struggling to keep my equilibrium.

Even though his two older brothers went on to play college football, Ryan Buchholz had no thoughts of doing the same thing when he entered Great Valley High School as a tall and, in his words, "extremely skinny" 14-year-old. But that all changed when he got his first scholarship offer after his sophomore season. He received plenty of advice about colleges from his parents and his brothers, one of whom, Carl, played at Maryland and the other, Erik, competed for James Madison. Buchholz's search eventually led him to Penn State.

DeANDRE' BEMBRY will be playing in Atlanta. Isaiah Miles is playing in France. Aaron Brown is leaving shortly for Iceland. On the first day of school Monday, the majority of the 2016 Atlantic 10 champion Saint Joseph's Hawks had their final time together during a ring ceremony in the Ramsay Center. "Just seeing all the guys and being able to spend some last-minute time with them before I go to Iceland is great," Brown said. These Hawks were a pleasure to watch from the first moment to the last, playing the game correctly, winning that A-10 championship and coming a few bad moments against Oregon from playing Duke in the Sweet 16. Coach Phil Martelli got several players from former SJU A-10 champs to help present the championship rings.

Oh, the woes of an unwanted Democratic donkey. Imagine being abandoned by New York, of all places. More understandable might be rejection by Guam, American Samoa, or even Connecticut, but the Empire State? The bluest of blues, birthplace of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and home to Hillary Clinton? In the end, it is all the same for four spurned fiberglass burros that were part of the herd of 57 scattered about Philadelphia to promote last week's Democratic National Convention. They won't be going home, their delegations unwilling to pay their shipping costs.

Decades ago, Peggy McCausland worked as a secretary in an office that felt a lot like the TV show Mad Men. "It was just rampant sexual harassment," she said. "So you just tolerated it because you had no choice. " Workplace culture has changed, said McCausland, now a lawyer and member of the Forum of Executive Women , a group of Philadelphia-area business leaders. But in many offices, she said, women still face sexual harassment and earn less than male colleagues.

Since releasing their first collaboration, 2012's "Treat Me Like Fire, " singer Jillian Hervey and producer Lucas Goodman have been creating genre-fusing music and growing an eclectic fan base. Lion Babe (the name stems from Hervey's voluminous mane and Goodman's zodiac sign, Leo) has kept the momentum going with tracks like "Jump Hi, " featuring Childish Gambino, which masterfully samples Nina Simone, as well as " Wonder Woman" and "Jungle Lady.

The Union last won a road game on March 12, just two games into the 2016 season. As they head out for two road games this week - first a U.S. Open Cup quarterfinal on Wednesday against the New England Revolution - they aim to snap that streak of falling short away from home. In talks with his team this week, coach Jim Curtin set a goal: win at least three of the nine remaining road games. How will the Union pull that off? Curtin said much will depend on pregame mind-set.

THE FEEL-GOOD stories come at you nightly these days. June call-up Zack Eflin bounces back from one of the worst-ever pitching debuts to vie with Vince Velasquez as the Phillies most anticipated starter. In barely more than two weeks time, Peter Bourjos morphs from a player batting behind the pitcher to someone intentionally walked with the game on the line. Jeanmar Gomez pitches so well as the team's closer it's hard to imagine he will be doing that in August. No longer damned with the interim tag, Pete Mackanin shows he is both capable enough and tough enough to manage in this town, handling praise and criticism with the same self-deprecating smirk, steadying a team filled with players who still aren't sure who they are as players, or what they can be. Freddy Galvis wins a game with a clutch home run. Cameron Rupp hits a 465-foot home run and Maikel Franco hits one 471 feet on the same day, a day after Tommy Joseph hit his second in as many games.
