STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Pennsylvania State University's trustees agreed Friday to add four female board members, increasing the board's gender diversity, an issue that several female members had raised. But the way things stand, come July the state's flagship university will lose its only African American trustees. Both Merck CEO Ken Frazier, the board's liaison to former FBI Director Louis Freeh, whose investigative report faulted university leaders for their handling of the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal, and Adam Taliaferro, a lawyer and former Penn State football player, are leaving because their terms are up. The board also has only one Hispanic member, acting state Education Secretary Pedro Rivera, and one Asian American, David Han, vice president of the department of surgery at Hershey Medical Center.

THE PHONE rang, as it does dozens of times a day, but this call was different. It was a bustling afternoon here in the office, I remember that much. This particular conversation, however, I will never forget. It was Feb. 5, a Thursday, and Stan Hochman was calling in to check with the sports editor about some bit of business or another. I just happened to answer the phone. "Eddie," Stan said with that unmistakable raspy voice, "I got our Derby winner. But hold yer ticket.

THE PHILADELPHIA Board of Ethics yesterday fined Deborah Watson-Stokes, who's running for judge, $300 for sending out a fundraising flier and planning her retirement party as a fundraiser before she'd officially quit working for the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office. Watson-Stokes worked for the D.A.'s office from September 1990 until Feb. 6, according to the ethics board. In January, she told her colleagues there that she planned to resign and run for judge in Municipal Court and Common Pleas Court - and that her retirement party would be a fundraiser, according to the ethics board.

Sean Brown, a former Camden school board member and a longtime critic of the district's leadership, this week began a grassroots campaign aimed at making the board an elected body, rather than a panel appointed by the mayor. Mayor Dana L. Redd has had the power to appoint all members of the board since 2010, when the state takeover of the city ended and Camden became a Type 1 school district dependent on its municipal government. Before that, the board was made up of a combination of members appointed by the governor and the mayor, as well as several who were elected.
