COATESVILLE The Coatesville Area School District's board denied Friday night that its suspension of its assistant superintendent was an attempt to intimidate a man who has been cooperating in a criminal investigation of district finances. A day after Chester County District Attorney Thomas Hogan issued a highly critical statement accusing the board of trying to intimidate a witness and hinder his office's work, the board called Hogan's statement "blistering and inaccurate. " The district said it was trying to be transparent when it said last week that it was placing its assistant superintendent, Angelo Romaniello, on administrative leave because of information it had uncovered, without giving details.

Donald "Guy" Generals Jr., 58, vice president for academic affairs at Mercer County Community College, will begin on July 1 under a three-year contract with an annual salary of $235,000, which is less than his predecessor's.

Villanova University has cleared a major hurdle in its expansion plans, which include building dormitories on an existing parking lot along Lancaster Avenue. The Radnor Township Board of Commissioners voted late Monday night to approve zoning changes for the estimated $300 million project, a step that took two years and drew strong opposition from some residents. Villanova wants to build new dormitories, a performing arts center, parking garage, and campus bookstore. A vocal group of residents has spent thousands of dollars and has packed meetings to fight the plans, which some said would increase traffic and noise while bringing an unwanted urban feel to their Main Line community in Delaware County.

The plan for a new Children's Hospital campus on the Schuylkill waterfront came under intense criticism Tuesday from a Philadelphia review board, which demanded major changes in the design to improve "connectivity" with the city. Members of the Civic Design Review board issued 10 recommendations for improving the massive high-rise campus just below the South Street Bridge. The plan calls for three office towers and a hotel - almost as much space as Comcast's two Center City towers - between the river and the rowhouse neighborhood known as Devil's Pocket.

WEST CHESTER The board of the West Chester Area School District approved a new teachers' contract Monday night, bringing a close to negotiations that collapsed into a bitter public battle last fall. The contract - which includes salary raises and benefits concessions - was approved by all but one member, Maureen Snook. It was backed by the four Democrats elected in November on a platform that pledged a healthier negotiating process. Several of those members attended negotiations, unlike their predecessors, who had sent a lawyer.

MOUNT HOLLY The new director of the Burlington County Freeholder Board is Bruce Garganio, a Republican who led the five-member board for three years before he was defeated in his bid for reelection in November 2011. After his upset at the polls, he was briefly considered as a candidate for the seat of Rep. Jon Runyan, a Republican, who announced he would not seek another term this year. Two weeks ago, the county Republican Committee tapped Garganio to fill the one-year vacancy that was created after Leah Arter resigned as freeholder director.
