It was a game that both coaches thought had a tinge of the World Wrestling Federation in it, but enough basketball play was included for Bensalem to outlast host Central Bucks East, 74-72, in a Suburban One National Conference game played Tuesday. "Every game in this league is a downright war," said Bensalem head coach Sheldon Per. "When you can win a game on the away from home, like we did tonight, you have to earn it. The kids may have come in here and looked ahead to Abington and Norristown, but give East credit.

ISSUE | CAMPAIGN 2016 Bernie's quest Until recently, I thought I knew why Bernie Sanders was continuing to vigorously pursue his virtually impossible goal of winning the Democratic presidential nomination ("In coal country, scant support for Clinton," Sunday). I was wrong. He is not simply trying to maximize his impact on the Democratic platform and influence Hillary Clinton's positions in the presidential campaign. Sanders is a true ideologue. How do I know? He has already moved Clinton to the left and has enough support to significantly affect his party's platform.

The region's Chinese community yesterday buried one of its own, shot to death two weeks ago during a lunchtime robbery in his Camden take-out restaurant. Bao Xing Lin lay in a casket at the Choi Funeral Home in Philadelphia's Chinatown, his three sons standing in a row nearby with their heads bowed, his sister on her knees hugging the casket and keening. This was the way his American story ended, with 150 mourners sending him off on a journey to the afterlife with incense and horns in a traditional Buddhist ceremony.

If Shawn Marcell and his colleagues succeed, the world will soon be introduced to a new kind of food additive that will change the taste of canned soups, coffee and dozens of other staples of the American diet. Called bitter blockers, these substances are designed to fool the cells in your taste buds into ignoring bitter elements in food, beverages or medicine. Bitter blockers represent a new approach to altering taste, based on the scientific understanding of the way the sense of taste works.

"We're going to stay with this to the bitter end . . . I will never concede to him, OK?" Frank L. Rizzo, Nov. 3, 1987 The "bitter end" came Saturday in the bone-chilling cold of a dilapidated city warehouse. A hundred or so of Frank Rizzo's most ardent supporters fanned out among thousands of voting machines, seeking the errors they were so sure existed. They didn't find them. "I'm disappointed," sighed Joe Migatz, a former city voter-registration official who had come out of retirement to play a key role in Rizzo's failed campaign.

PRESIDENT Bush finally articulates a semi-cogent plan to win the war in Iraq - and two allies announce plans to immediately bug out. Poor W. can't seem to get a break. Bulgaria and Ukraine are the latest countries to say that they will withdraw their troops. The 1,250 soldiers are expected to be out of Iraq by mid-December. Our fighting forces are going to be there a lot longer. While polls show the public's support for the war and for Bush have sharply declined, the attitudes of our allies in this mis-adventure have also taken a turn for the sour.

AT 34, Katie Holmes already has an old-beyond-her-years edge because of the whole marriage and a kid with Tom Cruise thing. In 2013, we predict Katie will date an age-appropriate actor (as opposed to her 50-year-old ex) looking to up his celeb status. Think Michael Fassbender or Bradley Cooper . Either that, or she'll go the Uma Thurman route, marry a billionaire and slowly fade from public view. * Cruise, on the other hand, will "date" a younger woman, this time less well known than Holmes so as to avoid any embarrassing media snafus when their relationship comes to its inevitable end. In fact, there are already rumors he's hooking up again.

Tony Bennett spent much of the 1970s strung out on coke and pot and once was saved by a now ex-wife when he OD'd. So writes the entertainer in his new memoir, The Good Life, in which he blames his descent into dope on a period lowlighted by his mother's death, the eclipse of his career, the unraveling of his marriage, and a bout with the IRS, which threatened to take his home. Bennett, 72, says he was introduced to drug life after he and his second wife, Sandra, and their two girls moved to Hollywood.

My brother and I fought, my parents used to say, "like cats and dogs. " On this particular evening, we were in a bitter standoff. He was 12 and I was 8. It was a night to remember. My burly father seized us by the scruffs of our necks and marched us to his room. He demanded an explanation for our behavior. Each of us blurted out our bitter complaint. "Two tough men," said my dad. "Neither of you will yield. " He did something then that frightened us both. He reached into a drawer and came out with two yardsticks - one a thick brown wooden ruler, the other made of thin German steel.

For 33 years it was simply the Bazaar Stamp & Coin. Now it's losing not only its lease at the Bazaar of All Nations but its name as well. So, as a bright orange sign on the storefront explains, the shop will be reincarnated as Collector's Showcase Inc. when it moves to Stoney Creek Center in Springfield on Oct. 1. "Nobody's really happy about it," said Mike Azzarano, the store's co- owner for the last 10 years. "We did a very good business, and now we have to hope that our clientele will follow us. " Azzarano's is one of about 70 stores that learned in late June that they would have to forge new identities by the time the warehouse-cum-flea market closes Dec. 31. The center at 5300 Baltimore Pike will be replaced with a Home Depot store and an enlarged Acme supermarket.
