It was a pipe dream hatched by firefighters at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida: to build a 9/11 memorial at the NASA center to honor the hundreds of firefighters and others killed when the World Trade Center towers collapsed in a terrorist attack. And they wanted to add an artifact - a 7-foot-long steel beam - recovered from the rubble at the towers. The space center firefighters raised the money to build a pair of concrete scale replicas of the twin towers. But persuading the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to give them the relic took several years.

The congregation of a Delaware County church has urged a federal judge in New York to grant its pastor bail after he was charged this week in an international insider-trading scheme involving Ukrainian hackers. In a letter submitted to U.S. District Judge Raymond J. Dearie, board members of the Slavic Evangelical Baptist Church of Brookhaven described Vitaly Korchevsky, 50, as a "very respected and connected person within our community" devoted to "God's calling to evangelize the world.

BYRON MAXWELL was barely an Eagle last May when he guaranteed to a reporter that he would be participating in his third consecutive Super Bowl this February. He based this not on the trade that had landed a former first-round pick as quarterback, or the signings of two elite level running backs, or even the fertile football mind of Chip Kelly. Nor was it about himself or any guarantee to deliver on a contract that will pay him as much as $63 million over the next six seasons. Maxwell took a look at the whole picture, particularly the mix of talent assembled in the secondary after two years of nightmarish coverage, a group whose nucleus includes three veterans with Super Bowl experience.

Prayers are flying fast and thick for Vitaly Korchevsky, the pastor of Slavic Evangelical Baptist Church in Brookhaven, Delaware County, indicted Tuesday in what is being called a $100 million cyber-hacking scheme to commit securities fraud. The 50-year-old preacher from Glen Mills leads a small but extremely loyal congregation, many of whom refuse to believe the charges. Church members and friends in the Slavic community have created a Facebook page, "Pray for Vitaly Korchevsky and Family," filled with words of support in Russian and English and Bible verses.

PHOENIX - The only thing that can block the Phillies from trading Chase Utley now is if the veteran second baseman invokes his no-trade rights. Utley reportedly cleared revocable waivers Tuesday, meaning the Phillies, if given the player's permission, could trade him to any team this month. The six-time all-star has the ability to veto any trade because he has spent 10 years in the major leagues and at least five with the same team. Utley has long maintained his desire to play for the Phillies as long as possible, but since spring training he has said he would listen to trade proposals from the front office out of respect for his longtime club.

Markieff Morris wants out of Phoenix. The Suns power forward said he feels disrespected by the way the team handled the July 9 trade of his twin and former teammate, Marcus Morris, to the Detroit Pistons. Now he is demanding a trade of his own. The North Philadelphia native, who starred with his brother at Prep Charter and Kansas, is determined to be dealt. "One thing for sure, I am not going to be there," Morris said Tuesday after a morning workout at Competitive Edge Sports in King of Prussia.

Federal authorities say Vitaly Korchevsky is a crooked money manager who worked for years with Ukrainian hackers to pull off an audacious $100 million insider trading scheme. His wife describes him as a humble pastor who routinely travels the world on behalf of one of the largest Slavic Baptist churches in the Philadelphia suburbs. But regardless of whether Korchevsky is just one or both of those things, he stands accused in what prosecutors are calling an "unprecedented hacking and trading scheme" that demonstrates a new threat posed by sophisticated cyber criminals.

SAN DIEGO - Chase Utley doubled only seven times over his first 254 plate appearances of this struggle-filled season. He smacked three two-baggers in his last five plate appearances of the Phillies' weekend sweep of the Padres, the veteran second baseman's first series back from the disabled list. Utley, a potential trade chip for the Phillies on this month's waiver trade market, had four hits in 10 at-bats in his first series since June. Throughout the weekend he flashed more bat speed than he displayed for much of April, May and June, when he hit a dismal .179 before his ankle injury landed him on the shelf.

Teams around the league place most of their players on revocable waivers in August, if for no other reason than to gauge the player's value around baseball. If one of its players is claimed, a team can either pull him back without repercussion, negotiate a trade with the team that claimed him, or, if hoping to get rid of salary, allow the other team to assume the player's contract. If a player passes through waivers unclaimed, his team is free to trade him to any team until Aug. 31, as it could before the July 31 non-waiver deadline.

SAN DIEGO - The first 29 days of July were full of speculation about which team Cole Hamels would pitch for in August, September, October, and beyond. Much of this month should prove compelling in regard to another Phillies icon. Several obstacles stand in the way of a waiver trade of Chase Utley, but a real possibility exists that this is the beloved second baseman's final month in red pinstripes. Utley's return from the disabled list on Friday officially commenced what figures to be an interesting few weeks that will perhaps dictate the immediate future of a Philadelphia fixture.
