6 ABC anchor/reporter Lisa Thomas-Laury says she was lucky to escape injury in a car accident Friday in Ardmore. Thomas-Laury's cream-colored Porsche Cayenne SUV was struck by another car near County Line and Roberts roads. She was thankful that her airbag deployed and that she was wearing a seat belt, the veteran broadcaster told us when we contacted her after hearing of the accident. "It looks worse than it is," she said about a bruise on her head. She said a first-responder told her she would have been much worse off if she hadn't been driving an SUV. She was taken to Paoli Memorial Hospital in a neck brace.

If 13-year-old Christian wrote a book about his life, the theme would be this: "No matter what predicament you are in, you can achieve whatever you want. Don't ever let anyone tell you that you can't. " What Christian, now living with a foster family, wants to achieve is what Kevin Mosley has had for nearly 40 years — a family that endures. The two do not know each other, but they share at least one bond. The matchmaker that helped put the then-2-year-old Mosley together with his adoptive mother is the same one helping Christian find a permanent home.

Nine African American students from Ardmore are petitioning the U.S. Supreme Court, asking for a review of lower-court findings in their bias case against the Lower Merion School District. The students' attorney, David G.C. Arnold, filed notice of appeal Tuesday, in effect asking the nation's high court to reexamine a ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit in the redistricting case. The Third Circuit found on Dec. 15 that a 2009 plan to assign the students to Harriton High School against their will did not violate their constitutional rights.
