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. Hendrix, a 1966 Henderson graduate and former member of the United States Information Agency, was scheduled to deliver the keynote address at last night's third annual Scholarship Banquet sponsored by the school's Black Student Union. In a phone interview from her Washington, D.C., home last week, Hendrix said she planned to tell the banquet audience that the real measure of success is whether people believe they are living up to their potential and taking advantage of opportunities.

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. "How do you achieve success to the highest level?" he asked about 150 teenagers at William L. Sayre High School. "The big answer is, you've got to be able to think. " Hailing from not only Sayre but also University City and West Philadelphia High Schools, the students were enrolled in summer enrichment programs offered by the University of Pennsylvania's Netter Center for Community Partnerships, which works for neighborhood revitalization.

Eagles fullback Jon Ritchie underwent successful surgery yesterday to repair the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, the team said. Team physicians Peter DeLuca and Paul Marchetto performed the surgery at Hahnemann University Hospital. Ritchie, 30, who was injured in the 30-13 win over Detroit on Sept. 26, will be lost for the remainder of the season. Although he had no rushing attempts, he had four catches for 36 yards in the Eagles' first three games. He was used primarily as a blocking back.

"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.

It wasn't long ago that 20 wins in a season would have been an accomplishment for Dallas. The Stars got their league-leading 11th road win and their 20th victory already this season last night as Pat Verbeek set up three goals against his former club in a 4-1 win over the Hartford Whalers. "As a group, we've been able to play a consistent game," Dallas forward Pat Verbeek said. "We have some real experienced players, guys who have won and can keep it on an even keel. " Goalie Arturs Irbe stopped 30 shots.

"THE OVERNIGHT" is a comedy that wonders if marriage and children mark an end to the crazy all-night misadventures of youth. The answer, of course, is yes, unless your definition of crazy includes burping a wailing infant or supervising a teenager's homework at 4 a.m. (which actually is crazy). "The Overnight" reminds us why the restrictions of parenthood lend themselves so poorly to all-night binging. It stars Adam Scott and Taylor Schilling as a couple just moved to L.A. from gloomy Seattle with their little boy, bringing with them a grunge vibe that feels out of place and distancing.

It wasn't Google, Facebook, Twitter, Yelp, or Zappos - none of these high-profile new-age companies nabbed the top spot on Fortune Magazine's first-ever list of best workplaces for millennials. Instead, it was a home remodeling company in Chester - Power Home Remodeling Group, a privately held firm with 1,511 employees based in a former power plant on the Delaware River. (Google, by the way, ranked 25th out of 100 for millennials, although the California search engine company has led Fortune's respected Top 100 Workplaces for all workers for the last six years.)

AS I WROTE last week, there is plenty of reason to be skeptical about the Phillies' reported interest in bringing aboard longtime baseball executive Andy MacPhail to eventually replace club president Pat Gillick. That skepticism has less to do with MacPhail himself than it does the process that would have landed him. Gillick's comments in interviews with the Inquirer and MLB.com over the weekend suggest he is intimately involved in picking his replacement. Given the organization's ownership structure, with no majority owner imposing his or her vision, it isn't clear who else would spearhead such an effort.

If you need a reason for why the Phillies have reportedly targeted longtime baseball executive Andy MacPhail to join their much-maligned front office, look no further than Citizens Bank Park's visitors' dugout last week. MacPhail's biggest triumphs came in 1987 and 1991, when he was general manager for two Minnesota Twins world championships, and he followed them by spending 12 less-successful years as president and CEO of the Chicago Cubs. But the Baltimore Orioles' recent success - their 2012 wild-card berth and last year's American League Championship Series appearance - wouldn't have happened without moves made by the now-62-year-old MacPhail.

First in an occasional series. Anthony Player crossed Erie Street, holding his 5-year-old son's hand as the baseball diamonds at North Camden's Pyne Poynt Park came into view. Giovanni was starting to wilt after walking more than a mile from Camden's City Hall under the hot midday sun, but he perked up at the sight of the field. "You be proud of yourself," Player, 33, urged Giovanni as they walked together amid a sea of children dressed in the brightly colored uniforms of the North Camden Little League for last weekend's opening-day parade.

Raushaun Williams started reading at age 3, and at 4 took an IQ test that identified him as gifted. But in the classroom, he was restless, and when he started kindergarten, he was regularly suspended. Several years and schools later, family and teachers point to the West Philadelphia teenager, now 16, as a role model for his upward academic trajectory. The Roman Catholic High School graduate is headed to Drexel University, where he intends to study biology this fall on a full scholarship.

Ovella O'Neal's parenting secret is simple: no cellphones, no girlfriends. This strategy helped her raise her son, Aljelani Igwe, who is set to graduate from LEAP Academy University Charter School next week and begin classes at Rowan University in the fall. Growing up in Camden, Igwe stayed out of trouble, O'Neal said, and never had any run-ins with the law. "He's just been a super kid," she said. "If I could clone him and put him in every home. ... He just listens. " To show her son how proud she is of his success, O'Neal arranged a surprise Tuesday afternoon.

D EAR ABBY: I'm a 28-year-old gay man who recently graduated with a liberal-arts degree. I always have struggled to support myself. I'm often discouraged because of professional and personal mistakes, which leads me to be pessimistic about my future. I want to date. I know love isn't going to be the save-all, but it would be nice to hang out with someone from time to time. My problem is, in the past men have been critical of my lack of success. They are often unimpressed with me. Successful men won't date me. Yet I feel intellectually incompatible with the blue-collar guys I've been with.

WHEN THE Phillies went down to Georgia to scout Griffin High School's Cornelius Randolph, the scouts wanted to know who his hitting instructor was. A swing that pretty - one Phillies director of amateur scouting Johnny Almaraz says produced the "best bat in the country" among high schoolers - must have been through hours of training and mastering with a professional, right? Not really. Randolph never had a professional lesson. He did, though, spend countless hours in the batting cage with his father, Cedric.

IF YOU WANT to be a cynic, you can look back at what the United States men's soccer team has done in Europe over the past week and diminish things by saying, "Oh, they were just friendlies. " True, a friendly is not the same as a World Cup match, but teams do not schedule friendlies just for the fun of it. They always have a purpose and teams always want to win. Keeping things in their proper context, the United States' 4-3 win over the Netherlands in Amsterdam last Friday and a 2-1 win over world champion Germany in Cologne on Wednesday are remarkable achievements, especially as the team prepares for the CONCACAF Gold Cup Tournament this summer, with the championship game at Lincoln Financial Field on July 26. Team USA beat the Dutch for the first time ever and beat Germany in Germany for the first time.
