The Haddonfield School Board voted last night to submit final plans to the state Department of Education for the $1.6 million in additions to the Elizabeth Haddon and J. Fithian Tatem Elementary Schools. Approval by the state is expected to take between six weeks and three months, according to school Superintendent Barry Ersek, and the board cannot award the final bid until it receives state approval. The additions for the Haddon school call for a music room, music-practice rooms and a new library with a computer room.

The Whitpain Zoning Hearing Board denied a homeowner's request to construct two additions to his single-family house in the 1600 block of Arch Road because he could not show that his newly purchased house presented a hardship that needed relief. During its meeting Thursday, the board voted, 3-0, to deny the request of Robert Jefferies to build a 44-by-24-foot, two-story addition and a 12-by-17- foot, single-story kitchen to his house in the Blue Bell section of the township.

The Pennsauken school board last night delayed a decision on an $11 million proposal to build additions to the high school and an elementary school. The vote was postponed after board members Joanne Robertson-Palmer and Robert Wagner raised questions about the projects. Palmer said she was not convinced that the district should spend $395,000 for a new music room at the high school, and Wagner suggested that more money be targeted to elementary schools other than the George B. Fine School.

More than a year after voters approved a $1.4 million referendum to build multipurpose rooms at the Bellmawr Park and Ethel M. Burke Schools, the district will hold groundbreaking ceremonies at the two schools tomorrow. "It's been a little bit of an uphill battle for us to get to this point. . . . Now we're in the final stretch, and we're extremely excited," Superintendent Timothy Bell said. When the referendum was passed, 530-337, in October 1993, officials said the additions would open this month.

Citizens task force and advisory committee members involved with the Owen J. Roberts School District's $10 million construction plans think back now to all the "little things" they added to their proposals for additions to two elementary schools. Their hindsight comes two weeks after the district announced that bids for construction at the Vincent and East Coventry Elementary Schools came in at nearly $13 million - almost $3 million more than had been anticipated. At the Aug. 1 school board meeting, members decided that rather than raise taxes to cover the higher costs, they would scale down the project so it could be paid for through a $10 million bond issue.

An architect's estimate and a high school student's plea may be the deciding factors in the debate over whether to simultaneously build additions to two Central Bucks high schools. Central Bucks school board members Charles D. Baker and Eric N. Raffle have asked the board to consider delaying or reducing the size of the planned additions - but their proposals appeared to gain little support from other board members Tuesday night. Supporters of the district's plan to simultaneously build the additions cited an architect's estimate that the district could lose $700,000 if it delayed or modified either addition.

Construction has begun on the district's new multipurpose rooms at the Bellmawr Park and Ethel M. Burke Schools, and officials are optimistic the additions will be completed by the end of the school year. "The construction work at the Bellmawr Park School is moving along really well," Superintendent Timothy Bell said. "We had some minor drainage problems with the Burke School roof, so we've dug up and repaired those drains. So we're about three weeks behind at that school, but we hope to catch up quickly.

After determing that the business meets zoning requirements, the New Britain Borough Planning Commission has given the owner of a crane-rental business approval to add to his building on Bristol Road. Frank Bauman, owner of the Bauman Crane Co., presented his plans to the commission on Tuesday to determine if he would have to seek a zoning variance to provide for the additions. The building is located within an industrial area. Had the business been deemed anything but industrial, Bauman would have needed the zoning board's approval before expanding the structure.

The proposed $1.2 billion PennEast Pipeline, which would deliver Marcellus Shale natural gas to New Jersey utilities, was dealt a setback Monday when a regional regulatory agency said it now wants to conduct an independent review of the project. The Delaware River Basin Commission, which last year requested a joint review with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), said Monday that it would conduct its own set of public hearings about the 119-mile pipeline. The DRBC, consisting of the governors of Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, and Delaware and a federal representative, has been under pressure from pipeline opponents to more rigorously review the project.

LA SALLE'S Hank Davis has appeared in two games this season, playing a total of five minutes. He missed his only shot, and picked up one foul. He still says he's living his dream. "Definitely," insisted the 5-11 junior walk-on, without hesitating. "This is what I wanted to do. When you're an athlete, something would be missing if I wasn't part of a team. It's something I love.

DEAR ABBY: I just read the letter from "Expecting in Canada" (Sept. 8) and am disappointed in her daughters' reaction to her pregnancy, as were you. My own mother announced she was pregnant with my baby brother when she was 42 and my sister and I were in college. Now, 46 years later, I can say he is one of the best things that ever happened to our family. He took great care of both my parents as they grew older and was with them when each passed away. My sister and I are very close to him, even though we nicknamed him "the crown prince" and teased him because that's how my parents treated him. I hope "Expecting's" daughters will eventually embrace this great gift.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Greg Hardy sure loomed large Sunday night. Some of his outsized presence even pertained to football. The Cowboys' indefensible defensive end stunted inside, finally beat Lane Johnson and sacked Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford to end a drive. Why did Hardy matter so much beyond that sack? Because pictures from Hardy's disgusting past seeped back into his disturbing present again - an inevitability, certainly; but in keeping with the Cowboy Code. The Dallas Cowboy Code.

Ant-Man is upon us. On Friday, another superhero heads to the multiplexes. A Silver Age brethren of Iron Man, Spider-Man, and Thor, Ant-Man is, um, a little different. Sure, he has the superhuman strength, the supercool costume, and the supersmart-alecky retorts of a Marvel Comics crimebuster. But this guy is less than an inch high, and if he joined his fellow Formicidae in an invasion of your kitchen pantry, you'd grab the Raid and gun him down with the rest of the pests. How can this tiny speck possibly do battle with evil masterminds bent on world domination?

THANKS TO a fumble by closed captioning and a tweet that went viral, new Sixers guard Nik Stauskas has had a wonderfully catchy nickname since March. Call him "Sauce Castillo. " Andrew Unterberger was watching the Kings-Sixers game on March 24 when Stauskas hit a seemingly routine three-pointer in the second quarter with Sixers announcer Marc Zumoff at the mic. That's when Unterberger, a Lower Merion native who lives in Queens, made the following observation. "My closed captioning just referred to Nik Stauskas as "Sauce Castillo" and I will never be able to not call him this again," Unterberger tweeted.

LESS THAN 48 hours before his scheduled start came up last week, Cole Hamels was scratched. He had a minor hamstring injury, an ailment that was insignificant enough that he was able to throw his normal, in-between starts bullpen session without issue on Sunday, two days after that scheduled start. But Hamels had some fun with his teammates during the period of uncertainty, clearing out his locker. Perhaps they'd think he was traded, Hamels thought, trying a prank to lighten the mood on a team in the middle of a weeklong losing streak.
