T

heatre Horizon begins its 2010/2011 Season
with the Tony Award winning musical, The
25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee with
book by Rachel Sheinkin and music and lyrics by
William Finn. Berwyn native and two-time Barry-
more Award winner Jennie Eisenhower leads a
Philadelphia-area ensemble in this hilarious musi-
cal about overachievers’ angst.
This one-act musical follows six adolescent odd-
balls in their quest to become champion spellers
at a competitive spelling bee run by the fictional
Rona Peretti, an enthusiastic former champion
and “Hostess of the Bee.”
At each performance of Spelling Bee, four vol-
unteer audience members are chosen as contes-
tants at the Bee and invited onstage. Ms. Eisen-
hower, in the lead role of teacher Rona Peretti,
will direct the Bee, singing her way through show-
stoppers like “My Favorite Moment of the Bee”
and “The I Love You Song.” Beneath the riotously
funny songs, Spelling Bee explores the pressure
of competition and the struggle to discover one’s
own identity. The quirky pubescent contestants
learn that winning isn’t everything and losing
doesn’t necessarily make you a loser.
After seeing the musical on Broadway, Theatre
Horizon Founder and Artistic Director Matthew
Decker knew it was the perfect match for Theatre
Horizon’s audience. “Spelling Bee fulfills Theatre
Horizon’s mission of creating a community of art-
ists and audiences through theatre,” says Decker.
“By welcoming these audience members on stage,
we’re creating a instant connection between the
actors and the audience. Each night these audi-
ence members will be asked to sing, dance, and
act on the spot. It will be thrilling to watch.”
Winner of two Tony Awards, Spelling Bee is based
upon C-R-E-P-U-S-C-U-L-E, an original improvisa-
tional play created by Rebecca Feldman. Tony
Award winning composer William Finn (Falsettos,
A New Brain) and book writer Rachel Sheinkin
adapted the play, which was workshopped and
developed at the Barrington Stage Company in
Massachusettes, then moved Off-Broadway and
subsequently premiered on Broadway in 2005.
Sheinken was awarded the Best Book of a Musi-
“S
aturday Night Live” legend
Joe Piscopo and from the
original cast of Broadway’s
“Jersey Boys,” Michael
Longoria, will light up
Caesars Atlantic City on
Saturday, August 28 as they present the
world premiere of their new production,
“That’s Life.”
Highlighting this electrifying new mixture
of music and comedy will be the appear-
ance by Joe – in full makeup – as the most
popular characters through which he rock-
eted to fame on “Saturday Night Live” in the
1980s, among them David Letterman, “The
Sports Guy” and of course, the immortal
Frank Sinatra, who was a big fan of Joe’s
impersonation of him. Joe will also perform
as another New Jersey-born musical giant,
Bruce Springsteen.
Audiences also will have the opportunity
to see a lesser-known side of Joe’s—that of
a master musician and “one-man band” whose
instrumental prowess includes piano, guitar,
saxophone, drums...and even flute!
Adding to the excitement of “That’s Life,”
will be the stellar voice behind Michael
Longoria, which became well known during
his Broadway run as Four Seasons lead sing-
A
reading by Rick
Moody, author
of the novels The
Ice Storm and, most
recently, The Four
Fingers of Death, opens
Bryn Mawr College’s
yearlong Creative Writ-
ing Program Reading
Series.
Moody will read from
his work at 7:30 p.m.
on Thursday, Septem-
ber 16, in the Good-
hart Hall Music Room.
Moody’s newest
book, The Four Fingers
of Death, was released
in July 2010, and has
been described as, “a
rollicking romp through
deep space and Arizona
alike, improbable and
thoroughly entertain-
ing, courtesy of mas-
ter storyteller Moody
....A smart, fun satire
—Jonathan Swift in
space, with twists be-
fitting Vincent Price,”
in a starred Kirkus
Review.
In addition to the The Ice Storm (which was adapted into
a critically acclaimed feature film directed by Ang Lee) and
The Four Fingers of Death, Moody is the author of three
collections of short fiction, a memoir, and three other nov-
els—Garden State, Purple America, and The Diviners.
Moody has been the winner of The Paris Review’s Aga Khan
Award and a Guggenheim Fellowship, among many other
awards, and his book, The Black Veil, was winner of the
PEN/Martha Albrand Award for excellence in the memoir.
The Creative Writing Program Reading Series is free and
open to the public. This year’s series will also feature:
• Jamaica Kincaid, Thursday, Sept. 30, 7:30 p.m., Thomas

“W
hen you have been comforted then you are a com-
fort to others” is a scripture JoAnn Cottman lives
every day. A hospital volunteer for the last 14 years, she also
preaches the benefits of early detection, the importance of
mammograms, and the need to be more aware about breast
cancer to anyone who will listen.
On July 14, 2010 Cottman was highlighted and introduced
at Living Beyond Breast Cancer’s (LBBC) preview party for
the nonprofit organization’s annual gala, The Butterfly Ball.
She is being honored for her commitment to making a dif-
ference at LBBC and in the breast cancer community. Cottman
and the other honorees, like butterflies, have journeyed
through the trials and tribulations of their breast cancer
diagnosis and have found a compassionate way to bring
hope to others. A regular LBBC volunteer, Cottman’s biggest
trial after breast cancer surgery would be the death of her
four-month old premature grandchild.
The Butterfly Ball, scheduled to take place on October 2,
2010 this year, helped LBBC raise over 500,000 for LBBC’s
education and support programs last year. As a result of the
generous donations, LBBC is able to provide programs to
women and families affected by breast cancer for little to
no cost. One of those programs, the toll-free Survivors’ Help-
line, was where Jo Ann of Philadelphia was able to draw
strength to fight her disease. Her strength, courage, and
motivation are the very characteristics that made her one
of the women to serve as an honoree for this event since
it began in 1997.
Cottman, who was recently selected out of more than 100
women to participate in a White House | Black Market ad
campaign along with 24 other breast cancer survivors, will
be featured in the clothing company’s October catalog
modeling select pieces from the retailer’s fall collection in
support of breast cancer awareness month. Coincidentally,
all honorees and co-chairs of the gala were dressed by White
House | Black Market for the preview party.
Diagnosed in November 2004 at age 60, her initial reaction
to ‘get through it and don’t let the fear control you’ has
been an inspiration to countless others including her fami-
ly. She quickly made the decision that she would do what-
ever the cost to rid herself of the cancer. As part of her
ten-year journey through diagnosis, radiation treatments
and seemingly endless medications, she looks at her breast
cancer as a newness of life and she is humbly grateful and
thankful every day to be able to tell her story where others
who were diagnosed on the same day she was, are not
around to tell their story.
Visit www.lbbc.org for information about its education
and support programs.

I
n response to an increase of day time residential burglaries and night time thefts from
vehicles, the Lower Merion Police Department has allocated personnel to address the
current crime trend. “The public can provide valuable assistance to our Department by
reporting suspicious activity,” noted Supt. Mike McGrath. “We also recommend that citizens
heighten awareness of their personal security and keep in mind that criminals will prey
on the easiest target.” Calls from the public reporting suspicious activity has increased
and proven helpful to the Police.
“Citizens should not hesitate to call when they see anything suspicious,” added Supt.
McGrath. “Though police officers are on continuous patrol,
they cannot be everywhere at once.” When considering
what constitutes suspicious behavior or activity, the follow-
ing guidelines can be helpful:
Anyone who acts abnormally should be considered sus-
picious. Examples of suspicious behavior include:
• Unusual noises, including screaming, sounds of fighting
or glass breaking.
• People in and/or around buildings or areas who do not
appear to be conducting legitimate business.
• Individuals driving vehicles slowly and aimlessly on
residential streets.
• People sitting in vehicles for extended periods of time.
• Those who unexpectedly knock on your door with
ambiguous purposes.
• Individuals who change their behavior when they notice
that they have been detected.
• People dressed inappropriately for the weather or occa-
sion, i.e., coat or wearing gloves when the temperature is
warm.
“It is always better to report a person or situation and have
it turn out not to be a crime than to not report the person
or situation and find out later that a crime was committed,”
urged Supt. McGrath. If you have a question or need further
information regarding burglary prevention, contact the
Lower Merion Police Department’s Crime Prevention Unit
at 610-645-6240.

with some of his favorites from Frankie Valli and The Four
Seasons.
“This is the show I’ve always wanted to do, bringing to

He added that having Michael join him in “That’s Life” push-

“From the first time I saw Michael on stage, I knew I want-

he lower Schuylkill River has a few surprises under its tidal surface.
Best known for its river boat and kayak tours, and a host of seasonal
regattas, the Schuylkill is home to more than 40 fish species including
catfish, carp and perch—all ready to go hook, line and sinker to anglers
looking for a great catch.
On Saturday, September 11, 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., the Philadelphia
Water Department and Department of Parks and Recreation will hold their
annual family fishing event, called “Philly FUN Fishing Fest,” on Schuylkill
Banks. The free festival is designed for fishing enthusiasts of all ages and
abilities. A fishing license is not required, and there will be a limited sup-
ply of fishing gear available on loan on a first-come, first-serve basis. A
variety of prizes will also be awarded during a ceremony which will be
held on Schuylkill Banks by the Walnut Street Dock following the event.
For information on the Fishing Fest, visit: www.schuylkillbanks.org or
http://www.phillywatersheds.org/whats_in_it_for_you/events/fishing_fest.
Schuylkill Banks is the best place in the city to experience the water-
front in the heart of Philadelphia. From movies and festivals to river boats
and kayaks, this 1.2 mile landscaped waterfront park and trail provides
visitors with an unparalleled urban river experience. Now in its sixth year
of offering diverse events for people of all ages, Schuylkill Banks has add-
ed additional activities for the 2010 programming season.
Schuylkill Banks will offer River Tours departing from the Walnut Street
Dock on select Saturdays, Sundays and Thursdays September 5 through
October 31 including. Tour offerings include a one-hour fun and fact-filled
guided boat tour that highlights the past, present and future of the Schuylkill River, and another that leaves Center City
by boat and travels down the Schuylkill to tour historic Bartram’s Garden. A complete schedule is available online at
www.schuylkillbanks.org and tickets can be purchased by calling 1-888-RIV-PHIL (748-7445).

ecently, five residents of The Watermark at
Logan Square were named finalists in a nation-
al art competition. Their original artwork will be
submitted for the national 2011 Expressions Art
calendar contest, which will feature works from
26 Watermark communities around the United States.
Of the submissions, twelve will be named winners and will
be showcased in the award-winning calendar.
Representing The Watermark at Logan Square are Rosalie
Bryman, Arthur Gold, Annabella Handler, Gil Karash, and
Thelma Segal. Each artist submitted an interesting and
unique piece, created in a medium of their choice. From
painter to potter, the artists embody the philosophy of
Watermark Retirement Communities: to express themselves
and to continuously learn and grow as individuals.
Some of the residents have backgrounds in art, while oth-
ers found their artistic talents later in life. Bryman attend-
ed Moore College of Art and Design and received her B.A.
She then took a course at Temple University on Interior
Design, which later became her career. Art is a passion for
Bryman and she has enjoyed painting her entire life. Her
artwork submitted is a collage created in mixed media.
Gold, whose work was featured in the 2009 Expressions
Art calendar, submitted a woven clay basket for this year’s
competition. He has been studying ceramics about 10 hours
a week for nearly five years at the Community College of
Philadelphia. For the last four years, Gold’s work has been
selected by professors to include at the college’s annual
art show.
Handler, who has been creating art as a hobby for over
25 years, is thrilled that her Japanese Bunka was selected
to be part of the national competition. She has created
around 40 pieces in this style and has presented many as
gifts to family members.
Karash, a Philadelphia native, was educated at the Univer-
sity of Pennsylvania and Temple University. He practiced
dentistry for 56 years and photography has always been
his favorite interest. He is typically the vacation and family
photographer, but
enjoys looking for
different scenes and
eye-catching images
that he can cap-
ture. Most recently,
Karash has begun
experimenting with
forms, colors, im-
pressions and ab-
stractions. His photo,
“Here’s Looki n’
Atcha,” will be part
of the national com-
petition.
Thel ma Segal
served on the staff
of the American Friends Service Committee in the United
States and abroad for nearly 30 years. Upon retirement, Segal
enrolled at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts
where she majored in painting. Additionally, she has stud-
ied at the Barnes Foundation in Merion, PA and the Fleisher
Art Memorial and Woodmere Art Museum, both in Philadel-
phia. In addition to her painting in the 2011 Expressions
Art calendar competition, Segal has works in group exhibi-
tions in Delaware Valley galleries, solo shows, and in a
number of private collections.
The Watermark at Logan Square is located at Two Franklin
Town Boulevard, Philadelphia, PA 19103. For info, call 215-
240-8915 or visit www.watermarkcommunities.com/logan-
square.

he Main Line Chamber Foundation is preparing for its
primary fundraiser, the September 26 Main Line Run.
Billed as the “most family-friendly run on the Main Line,”
preregistered teams of five can sign up for the 5K Run at a
cost of just $125; single runners can preregister for $25, which
includes a high-quality shirt and free entry to a pre-race pasta
party at Land Rover of the Main Line on Saturday, Septem-
ber 25.
The certified 5K course starts and ends at the Chamber
office, just behind the Wayne Farmer’s Market and travels
down Lancaster Avenue to North Wayne Avenue, winding
through beautiful neighborhoods to Eagle Road, which leads
back to the Chamber office campus.
“Those who want to support the event but aren’t com-
petitive runners can participate in our 3K walk, or simply
bring the family and enjoy our Kids Zone and other attrac-
tions,” added Kevin Nolan, President of Nolan Painting and
Chair of the Main Line Run Committee. “We’re still accept-
ing sponsors and encourage the community to participate
for the great cause of investing in our youth.” A title spon-
sorship is still available for this high-profile event; for info
visit www.mainlinerun.org. For information on The Main
Line Chamber Foundation, visit www.mlcc.org.
Since 2001, The Main Line Chamber Foundation has award-
ed over $150,000 in scholarships to area students, fulfilling
its mission to enhance the quality of life in the Main Line
region through the promotion of education and volunteer-
ism. “Our goal each year is to increase how much we can
give to support the young people in our region,” added Grim.
“We hope that many will partner with us to sponsor, run or
volunteer to make the September 26th Main Line Run our
most successful ever.”

G
illian will be sharing stories and songs from her adven-
tures abroad at a special celebratory concert with her
band at the Tin Angel, 20 S. 2nd Street, in Philadelphia, on
Friday, August 27 at 10:30 p.m., before hitting the road for
a three-month national tour this fall. Visit www.tinangel for
information.
Upon her graduation from Bryn Mawr College in May 2009,
Gillian was awarded a coveted Thomas J. Watson Fellowship,
which sponsored her and her harp for twelve months of
travel abroad as she conducted an independent research
project entitled: “Artist 2.0: The Impact of New Technology
on Independent Music.” Pulling on her own experience as
an independent artist in the United States, Gillian has spent
the past twelve months traveling through France, Germany,
India, Indonesia, China, and Russia, where she performed,
collaborated, and conducted interviews with people involved
on all levels of the music industry, from Bollywood sound
engineers to an avant-garde jazz duo in Moscow.
“Digital distribution, social media technology, electronic
instruments, and readily available recording software have
changed the ways that music is created and consumed,
placing local and global music industries in flux,” Gillian
explains. “It’s at once an incredibly exciting time to be mak-
ing music and an incredibly unstable time to be trying to
make a living making music.
“I had a pretty good sense of what it meant to be an indie
musician in the U.S., but this is a country with a long and
well-established history of recording/performing artists,”
says Gillian. “There are many things American musicians
take for granted – our highway system, small-scale listen-
ing room venues, an audience culture that is accustomed
to buying tickets for live music entertainment, even open
mic events for new acts to cut their teeth – these are things
that don’t necessarily exist, or exist differently, in other
countries.” Gillian studied emerging music scenes and new
business models for recording/performing artists, through
conversations with musicians, venue owners, studio tech-
nicians, and fans in Europe and Asia.
Gillian departed from her traditional background in Classi-
cal and Celtic music and began writing original songs while
living abroad in Switzerland when she was fifteen. Upon
returning to the States, she graduated high school a year
early and turned down conservatory acceptances to dive
head first into the Philadelphia singer-songwriter circuit.
Since then, she has independently released two critically
acclaimed recordings—her 2005 EP “To an Unwitting Muse”
and 2007’s “Serpentine,” a full-length album that was com-
posed, recorded, and released while she was still a student
at Bryn Mawr College. Both sold out of their original press-
ings.
She has toured along the Eastern seaboard and in all of
her project countries, booking her own shows, and has been
a featured act at WXPN’s
XPoNential Music Festival
and the Edinburgh Interna-
tional Harp Festival, debut-
ing at the latter at the tender
age of fourteen. Her song
“Silken String” finished sec-
ond in the 2008 New York
Songwriters Circle Competi-
tion and has since been pick-
ed up by triple-A radio sta-
tions nationally.

of community beautification,
art, and intercultural aware-
ness, culminated with the
painting of an impressive 1,000
square-foot mural just out-
side the International House’s
student center created by a
group of 20 participants and
four leaders who built a friend-
ship during their ambitious
venture. Billings, with the
assistance of his teacher and
professional muralist Scott
Kirschner, designed a mural
that took recognizable city
images and landscapes from
10 countries and combined
them to connect gracefully
with each other and repre-
sent a feeling of united tran-
quility. By painting side by side, and through a series of
activities including “breaking bread” together, all participants
were able to gain first-hand knowledge of the others’ culture.
“My goal was to show how a three-day community beau-
tification and intercultural awareness project using mural
arts could have a positive impact on both American teens
and international students,” Billings said. “International
House Philadelphia residents come from different back-
grounds and have each had unique experiences in their
respective countries. I wanted everyone involved to learn
and teach collectively, simply by being brought together
with the common goal of creating this mural.”
“Kyle is a wonderful example for young people,” said Bruce
Wartman, President of Hussian School of Art. “It is very
admirable that he brought so many individuals together to
participate in an art and cultural experience.”
Hussian School of Art is a four-year professional career
school dedicated to the Communication Arts. The school
is now located in the Bourse Building, 111 South Indepen-
dence Mall East (at 5th Street), Philadelphia, PA 19106. For

cal Tony for her efforts on Spelling Bee.
Theatre Horizon continues its tradition of working with up
and coming top Philadelphia artists. In addition to Jennie
Eisenhower (Walnut Street Theatre’s Fallen Angels and For-
bidden Broadway), the cast of The 25th Annual Putnam County
Spelling Bee features Dave Johnson (Lantern Theatre’s Scapin)
as “Word Pronouncer” Vice Principal Douglas Panch and
Carl Clemons-Hopkins (Walnut Street Theatre’s Eclectic
Society, 11th Hour/Theatre Horizon’s Little Shop of Horrors)
as “Bee Comfort Counselor” Mitch Mahoney. Featured as
the spellers are Rachel Camp (Theatre Horizon’s Honk and
Working) as Olive Ostrovsky, Michael Doherty (Arden’s The
History Boys, Theatre Horizon’s Holiday Show) as Leif Coney-

“When producing theatre in Philadelphia, you have access
to a large pool of extraordinary talent. We are fortunate to
have assembled the leading young musical theatre actors
in the region. Casting the perfect ensemble is crucial to
the success of this production. It needs inventive actors
who possess improv skills, an amazing sense of humor, and
fearlessness. We have those actors in this cast,” says Decker.
And how does a director prepare actors for the new nightly
spelling bee contestants? “It’s going to make for an inter-
esting rehearsal process.”
Theatre Horizon’s Spelling Bee will begin preview perfor-
mances September 10 and run through October 3 at the
Centre Theater on 208 DeKalb Street, Norristown. This pro-
duction is recommended for theatergoers over the age of
thirteen. On Thursday, September 9, a special Pay-What-
You-Can final dress rehearsal is open to the public. After
opening, the cast will go back into rehearsal to prepare for
a special “Parent-Teacher Conference” Night on Friday,
October 1 at 10 p.m., where all words presented to spellers
are for adult ears only.
Spelling Bee begins Theatre Horizon’s sixth season, which
is also set to continue their tradition of writing an original
work for the holidays. This time the theatre invites Philly
Fringe Festival favorites, The Berserker Residents’ Justin
Jain, Dave Johnson, Brad Wrenn and Tim Sawicki to pen a
highly comedic composite of well-known holiday classics.
The season concludes with The Credeaux Canvas by Keith
Bunin, a powerful drama set in a paint-splattered apartment
in the East Village.
Theatre Horizon’s mission
is to encourage audience
members, artists, and stu-
dents to create a communi-
ty through theatre. Theatre
Horizon is an active partici-
pant in the Norristown Arts
Task Force as well as a found-
ing member of Arts Hill along
DeKalb Street in downtown
Norristown. The goal of the
Arts Task Force is to revital-
ize the old industrial river-
side town by bringing arts
and nightlife to the suburban
downtown area.

eventy-five percent of pancreatic cancer patients die with-
in the first 12 months of their diagnosis and the five-year
survival rate is only five percent. In a collaborative project,
George Prendergast, Ph.D., Professor, President & CEO at
the Lankenau Institute for Medical Research (LIMR) and
Iraimoudi Ayene, Ph.D., Associate Professor at LIMR, received
a one-year $125,000 grant from the Elsa U. Pardee Founda-
tion to conduct the research project entitled Novel Immuno-
chemotherapy for Pancreatic Cancer Treatment.
Cell biochemistry and genetic studies suggest that cancer
cells may be addicted to a cellular process called the oxida-
tive pentose phosphate cycle (OPPC), which supports DNA
biosynthesis and other needs of cancer cells. This new work
will test the expected killing effects of disrupting the OPPC
in preclinical models of metastastic pancreatic cancer, which
are needed before clinical testing of the idea can begin.
Specifically, the project will characterize the pharmacolog-
ical and therapeutic properties of Hypoxin, a drug com-
pound discovered in Dr. Ayene’s lab. By disrupting OPPC
function the hope is to increase tumor cell killing, thereby
delaying relapse and extending survival of patients with
metastatic disease, where there is a great need for better
therapeutic options.
Dr. Prendergast is a distinguished cancer researcher with
wide recognition and expertise in areas of cancer genetics
and biology, signal transduction, and molecular therapeutics.
In 1995, he was recognized as a Pew Scholar in the Biomedi-
cal Sciences, one of an elite group of twenty
investigators awarded this prize each year
by The Pew Charitable Trusts. Dr. Prender-
gast has been a member of the American
Association of Cancer Research (AACR) since
1996 and serves as Editor-in-Chief for Cancer
Research, the field’s most highly cited jour-
nal. He is a graduate of the University of
Pennsylvania where he received his BA
magma cum laude with Distinction in Bio-
chemistry; Yale University where he obtain-
ed his MS in Molecular Biophysics and Bio-
chemistry; and Princeton University where
he received his Ph.D. in Molecular Biology.
Dr. Ira Ayene joined LIMR in 2007 from
the University of Pennsylvania, Department
of Radiation Oncology. He received M.Sc. in
Life Sciences and Ph.D. in Biology, Chemistry
& Radiation Biology from Jawaharlal Nehru
University in New Delhi, India. His research
goal is to find new ways to improve the
effectiveness of radiation and chemotherapy
in cancer treatment.
Founded in 1927, the Lankenau Institute
for Medical Research (LIMR) is an indepen-
dent, nonprofit biomedical research center
located in suburban Philadelphia on the campus of the
Lankenau Hospital. Part of Main Line Health, LIMR is one
of the few freestanding, hospital-associated medical research
centers in the nation. The faculty and staff at the Institute
are dedicated to advancing an understanding of the causes
of cancer, heart disease and diabetes. They use this infor-
mation to help improve diagnosis and treatment of these
diseases as well as find ways to prevent them. They are also
committed to extending the boundaries of human health
and well-being through technology transfer and the train-
ing of the next generation of scientists and physicians. For
information, visit www.limr.org.
Located in Midland, Michigan, the Elsa U. Pardee Founda-
tion was established in 1944 under the terms of the will of
Mrs. Elsa U. Pardee, whose life was taken by cancer on
October 2, 1944. Mrs. Pardee provided a $1 million trust
fund “for the promotion of the control and cure of cancer.”
She directed that this bequest be used to support research
in the field of cancer and to provide for others the advan-
tages of new knowledge and techniques for the treatment
of this related group of disabling and frequently lethal dis-
eases. Since 1944, this family-run foundation has proudly
given over $113 million in grants to support two key areas:
research programs directed toward discovering new ap-
proaches for cancer treatment and cure and financial sup-
port for cancer treatment.

T
he Sisters of Mercy are celebrating the 150th anniversary
of their presence and service in health care, education
and other ministries in the Philadelphia region. To com-
memorate this milestone, the Sisters of Mercy will be kick-
ing off a year-long celebration on Sunday, August 22, 2010
with Vespers and a reception at the Convent of Mercy in
Merion, PA.
Other activities this fall include part one of a speaker series
on Saturday, September 25, which will be held at Merion
Mercy Academy, Merion, PA; a Circle of Mercy Concert on
Monday, October 18 at 7 p.m. at the Kimmel Center, Phila-
delphia; and a Mercy Day of Service on Saturday, November
20 at ministries throughout Philadelphia with Mercy affilia-
tions.
“We are very proud of the dedicated service the Sisters
of Mercy have demonstrated in the Philadelphia region for
the past 150 years,” says Sister Christine McCann, RSM,
president of the Sisters of Mercy Mid-Atlantic Community.
“We look forward to celebrating our legacy of service to
those who are poor, sick and uneducated with special care
and compassion for those most in need.”
The first part of the speaker series will feature Marilyn
Lacey, RSM, a Sister of Mercy, who will give a presentation
titled, “Boundless Mercy of God.” Sister Marilyn is passion-
ate about making the world a more welcoming place for
refugees and migrants. The poor, she says, have been a
wellspring of many blessings for her, not the least being of
which is the Mercy charism that burns so strongly in her
heart. She was personally honored by the Dalai Lama in
2001 as an “Unsung Hero of Compassion” for her work in
Asian and African refugee camps and for her leadership with
US refugee resettlement. Though she holds an M.S.W. from
University of California at Berkeley and an honorary doc-
torate from College of St. Mary in Omaha, she insists that
the refugees have been her best teachers. In 2009 Sister
Marilyn wrote a memoir, “This Flowing Toward Me: A Story
of God Arriving in Strangers.” She is now the founding direc-
tor of Mercy Beyond Borders, a non-profit partnering with
displaced women and girls in Southern Sudan to alleviate
their extreme poverty.
In recognition of Mercy Day on Friday, September 24, a
message about the 150th anniversary will be displayed on
the PECO Energy Crown Lights on top of the PECO building
in Center City Philadelphia.
The concert at the Kimmel Center will tell the story of the
Sisters of Mercy since their arrival in Philadelphia on August
22, 1861. Students from Mercy schools and colleges, the
Gospel choir from Mercy Hospital of Philadelphia and the
sisters themselves will perform during the concert. (Tickets
can be purchased by calling Ticket Philadelphia at 215-893-
1999, online at www.kimmelcenter.org or in person at the
Kimmel Center Box Office).
A day of volunteer service will be held on Saturday, Nov-
ember 20, and sites include Mercy Neighborhood Ministries,
1939 W. Venango St., Philadelphia; Project H.O.M.E., 1515
Fairmount Avenue, Philadelphia; and Mercy Vocational
High School, 2900 W. Hunting Park Avenue, Philadelphia.
Volunteers will work on painting, cleaning and planting pro-
jects at sites throughout the Philadelphia area. If you’re
interested in volunteering, contact Sister Suzanne Thompson,
RSM, at 610-664-6650, ext. 214 or via e-mail: sthompson@
mercymidatlantic.org .
For info about the 150th anniversary celebration, go to:
http://www.mercymidatlantic.org/150thAnniversary.html.
The Sisters of Mercy are an international religious com-
munity of Roman Catholic women who help people who
are poor, sick, and in need of education, especially women
and children. In the Mid-Atlantic Community, which encom-
passes the states of New York, New Jersey, and eastern
Pennsylvania, more than 1,000 sisters and 900 associates
continue the work of Catherine McAuley, the foundress of
the Sisters of Mercy, by serving God by committing their
lives and resources to helping people in need and chang-
ing unjust systems.
Sisters from the Mid-Atlantic Community serve in min-
istries in 25 states and in Africa, Europe, and South Ameri-
ca by helping people in need and serving them with Mercy
and compassion. For information about the Sisters of Mercy,
Mid-Atlantic Community, visit www.mercymidatlantic.org.

S
leeping until noon is a teenage ritual—so typical that most parents and teens think
nothing of it. Sometimes, however, out-sleeping the alarm can signal a problem. Just
like the general population, teenagers are prone to chronic sleep disorders that can affect
mood, concentration and academic success. To address these issues, the experts at the
comprehensive sleep centers of the Crozer-Keystone Health System offer solutions and
therapies for teenagers with sleep problems.
“The biggest issue we see in teenagers and sleep is a mismatch in their demands for time
and their biology. Teens are classically phase-delayed—meaning, they stay up later and
wake up later than what might be expected for their school schedule,” says Michael Wein-
stein, M.D., pulmonologist and medical director of the Crozer-Keystone Sleep Center at
Delaware County Memorial Hospital in Drexel Hill. “Add to that the fact that teens today
have more time commitments, with extracurricular activities and sports, and they’re going
to be tired.”
It turns out, there’s a very natural reason why teens like to hit the snooze button. “Gener-
ally, teenagers have higher sleep requirements than when they were nine or 10 years old.
Adolescent growth spurts require more sleep,” says Asad Khan, M.D., pulmonologist and
medical director of the Crozer-Keystone Sleep Center at Brinton Lake in Glen Mills.
For most teenagers, a later bedtime won’t interfere with normal functioning. For some,
however, a pattern of phase-delayed sleep can lead to sleep deprivation, which has nega-
tive side effects. “Sleep deprivation affects your mood and can lead to depression. It can
lead to poor performance in school, or more serious mistakes, such as drowsy driving
and accidents,” Dr. Weinstein says.
Treating delayed sleep-phase syndrome typically involves techniques to gain better con-
trol over the sleep cycle. Because treatments are behavioral, physicians rely on the will-
ingness of the patient to make changes. “Most of the time, the teenager will recognize it’s
a problem and want to get help, especially if they’re motivated to do well in school,” says
Andrew Borson, Ph.D., a neuropsychologist at the Crozer-Keystone Sleep Center at Taylor
Hospital in Ridley Park. “By the time patients come to see us, they’ve usually tried going
to sleep earlier on their own and it hasn’t worked.”
Teens are encouraged to stop napping and to try to keep to a sleep schedule over week-
ends, even when their schedule allows them to stay up later. “If you have more time, such
as on a school break, you can try what we call chronotherapy,” Dr. Khan says. “If the teen
is going to sleep at 2 a.m. you delay the bedtime by an hour each night and let them sleep
as long as they want. You continue this until they are on the schedule they should be on.
Another thing we suggest is using light therapy to adjust the internal clock.” Doctors might
also recommend using melatonin to help reset sleeping patterns.
Delayed sleep-phase syndrome isn’t the only problem specialists see in teens. Other
problems include narcolepsy, a rare chronic disorder that causes excessive sleepiness and
sudden sleep “attacks” that usually starts during young adulthood. Narcolepsy can be
treated with medication and lifestyle changes.
More common is sleep apnea, a condition in which the sleeper’s breathing repeatedly
starts and stops and the sleeper may wake up in the middle of the night gasping for air.
Sleep apnea makes it impossible for a teen to get a good night’s sleep, but doctors are in-
creasingly seeing this condition among adolescents. Khan says it often occurs when teens
have enlarged tonsils. Another major risk factor is weight.
“In general, we’re seeing more cases of sleep apnea with teens, because pediatricians
are more frequently recognizing it and referring patients to us, but it’s also a result of the
obesity epidemic,” says Calvin Stafford, M.D., medical director of the Sleep Center at Taylor.
Sleep apnea is treated with an appliance called a CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway
Pressure) machine, which enables breathing during sleep, or sometimes with surgery to
open the airways. Weight loss and other lifestyle changes may be recommended.
Experts say that awareness is building about sleep issues in general and particularly for
teens. “Science supports getting proper rest for growth, for memory function, for immune
function. We know that people who are sleep-deprived make more mistakes than those
who are well rested,” Dr. Stafford says. “We know that optimizing sleep optimizes perfor-
mance.”
Crozer-Keystone’s three sleep centers are accredited by the American Academy of Sleep
Medicine, which is dedicated to setting standards and promoting excellence in sleep medi-
cine health care, education and research.

T
he Nelly Ber-
man School
of Music (NBS)
will hold a mem-
orial concert in
memory of gifted
violin student,
Chanlan Lee, on
January 23, 2009
at 7 p.m. Chanlan
Lee, age 8, pass-
ed away on Dec-
ember 19 due to
a severe case of
viral encephali-
tis. He was the
youngest schol-
arship student
at the Nelly Ber-
man School of
Music and quite
an accomplished
violinist for his
young age.
Chanlan had a
deep passion for
music that was transparent and vibrant. He was involved
in not only solo performances, but chamber groups and
intensive summer camps. His hard work paid off when he
was the youngest soloist chosen to perform on the stage
at the Kimmel Center as a platinum winner of the NBS Golden
Key Competition. In addition to his heart for playing, he was
also dedicated to the scholarship program that supplement-
ed his lesson fees. To show his appreciation, he took initia-
tive to raise funds, over $300 to be exact, by playing in his
parents’ restaurant in the Chinatown section of Philadelphia.
The January 23 concert will be held at Centennial Hall at
The Haverford School, 450 Lancaster Avenue, Haverford,
from 7 p.m. - 9 p.m. The event, showcasing students and
professional musicians, will commemorate Chanlan’s love
and passion for music and life. A donation of $15 per adu
and $10 per child is suggested. All proceeds will benefi
the Chanlan Lee Scholarship Program, which will provid
a scholarship to a gifted violin student, from around th
ion with adequate lessons to foster their talent.

W
est Laurel Hill Cemetery’s Seasonal Tour Series continues with its Summer Tour on
Saturday, August 21 at 9:00 a.m. With the fresh breezes of spring a distant memory
and the dog days of summer upon us the trees in West Laurel Hill’s arboretum have raised
their defenses against the harsh Philadelphia summer. Differences in size, shape and
thickness of leaves not only provide shade for us, they also protect the tree against the
sun and heat and help regulate water loss. Come see how spectacular these trees look when
they are in full leaf and how they affect the summer landscape of the cemetery.
The second in a series of seasonal tours, each is offered free of charge and departs from
the Conservatory on the grounds of the Cemetery. There will be a Fall Tour on Saturday,
October 30 and a Winter Tour is scheduled for Saturday, December 4. All tours begin at
9:00 a.m. Reservations are requested. Call 610-664-1591 or email contactus@forever-care.com
for information or to reserve your space.
Established in 1869, Historic West Laurel Hill Cemetery is a family-owned, non-profit,
non-denominational cemetery, a 187-acre arboretum and an outdoor sculpture garden
rich in cultural and social history. Bringhurst and Turner Funeral Homes are located on
the grounds of West Laurel Hill Cemetery, 225 Belmont Avenue, Bala Cynwyd, PA.

WAWA BALA CYNWYD STORE
CELEBRATES 40 YEAR ANNI VERSARY
As part of this milestone celebration,
Wawa honored Customers of Honor;
including many who have been shop-
ping since the store opened. Attend-
ing the event are, from left – Customer
of Honor David Ford, Wawa’s COO
David Johnston, and Wawa’s Mascot
Wally Goose. To honor these veteran
customers of honor, Wawa presented
each of these customers with a spe-
cially designed Wawaversary travel
mug, filled with one month’s worth of
free Wawa coffee coupons. In addition,
each of these customers was present-
ed with a ceremonial “key to the
store,” which David Ford is pictured
holding.
Group shot surrounding gigantic coffee cup cake constructed entirely out of Wawa coffee cups,
with a figurine of Wawa’s Mascot, Wally Goose, dressed in a tuxedo on the top of the cake. The
cake is encircled by Wawa’s Values, meant to reflect Wawa’s renewed vows to the community.
W
awa, Inc. celebrated a milestone in their company’s history—the 40th anniversary of
their store located at 193 Belmont Avenue, Bala Cynwyd, PA 19004 on Monday, August
9. To mark this special anniversary and celebrate Wawa’s continued investment in the
community, Wawa renewed their vows to the community through an in-store wedding-
inspired celebration. During the event, Wawa toasted the community, and recognized cus-
tomers and associates for their loyalty and business throughout the years, by offering free
coffee all day. Wawa also celebrated its long-standing commitment to the Children’s Miracle
Network and, specifically, to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, through the presentation
of a check celebrating the results of the 2nd Quarter Miracle Balloon campaign.
