For a private boarding school that prides itself on being progressive and close-knit, it was a jarring admission. In a letter mailed to alumni and posted on its website, the Solebury School for the first time acknowledged and apologized for sexual abuse of former students at the hands of faculty from the 1950s to the 1970s. Administrators said that the claims surfaced only in the last two years, and that they hoped their announcement would help the victims while holding the small Bucks County school to its own standards.

A hot time at the Red Ball Gala helped bring down Bucks Fever Saturday night in Doylestown. The finale involved more than dining and dancing, though: There was a dramatic reading of Pearl S. Buck's "The New Year" on Sunday, hosted by David and Julie Nixon Eisenhower. All of which led chairman Ron Watson to conclude that "there is something hot about Bucks County beyond the real estate market. "

Don't call it an invasion. A black bear was spotted in central Bucks County on Wednesday morning - the third time in less than a month that a bear has been seen wandering through Philadelphia's suburbs. This particular bear, first spotted Wednesday morning around Chalfont, had apparently made its way toward New Britain Township just before noon, where police were warning residents not to approach it. From there, the Pennsylvania Game Commission said, the bear's trail went dark.

Republicans in the Philadelphia suburbs appear poised to capitalize on a strong year for their party when it comes to Congress. Nationally, the GOP is widely expected to expand its majority in the U.S. House as it also pushes to win control of the Senate. Local House campaigns have mirrored the trend as voters have soured on President Obama and as GOP confidence has risen in competitive districts just outside Philadelphia. National Democrats, meanwhile, have canceled ad buys there as they have focused on protecting incumbents elsewhere.

With a congressional district encompassing their entire county, Bucks residents are fortunate to speak with one voice in Washington. For a good part of the last decade, that voice has belonged to U.S. Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick (R., Pa.). Throw in the fact that Fitzpatrick, 51, put in a decade on the County Commission in Doylestown, and it's not surprising that he's almost viewed as a fourth commissioner. Beyond career and family roots, Fitzpatrick brings a deep understanding of county affairs to bear in representing his district, whose middle-of-the-road voters have dispatched him to Congress for one term and, after a hiatus, two more.

Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. said Thursday its third-quarter profit rose compared with the same period last year in large part because it stopped trying to sell generic medicine in markets where the profit was too small, cut expenses, and converted patients to a new version of its multiple sclerosis medication. Teva's net income rose from $711 million in the third quarter of 2013 to $876 million in the same period this year. Sales for the third quarter were almost flat, decreasing from $5.059 billion in 2013 to $5.058 billion in the third quarter this year.

      Races to fill the seats of two retiring lawmakers in the Philadelphia suburbs are among the most competitive campaigns for the Pennsylvania House this fall. Those races, in Bucks and Delaware Counties, could indicate whether gains in voter registration for Democrats will translate into campaign victories, analysts say. Though there are only a handful of close House races this fall, "a lion's share of them are right around the Philadelphia suburbs," said Chris Borick, a pollster and political scientist at Muhlenberg College.

A Bucks County man who helped his mother kill herself in a failed suicide pact was sentenced Monday to time served, about six months in jail, closing a rare case that began with a murder charge. In April, Gus Yiambilis, 30, and his mother Karen Yiambilis, 59, wrote several suicide notes before sealing their Bensalem apartment's vents and turning on a gas-powered electric generator. The fumes killed Karen Yiambilis, but her son survived after neighbors called police about the smell.

The three Bucks County residents arrested earlier this month for allegedly attacking two gay men in Center City will have a joint preliminary hearing on Dec. 16, a judge ruled Tuesday. Following that hearing, a judge will determine if there is enough evidence to warrant a trial. The defendants - Kathryn Knott, 24, Philip Williams, 24, and Kevin Harrigan, 26 - were excused from having to appear at the status hearing by agreement with the District Attorney's Office. But attorneys for Knott, of Southampton, and Harrigan, of Warrington, said their clients are not gay-bashers.

A lunchtime rally at the Delaware County Courthouse on Monday was billed as a fight for increasing the minimum wage, but it took on the character of a Democratic campaign rally, with not a single low-wage earner in sight. State Sen. Daylin Leach (D., Montgomery), who has proposed increasing the hourly minimum from the current $7.25 to $12, said the only way to raise the minimum wage is to elect Democrats. "We have 36 days to make this happen," Leach said. Reached before the rally, Andrew Reilly, Delaware County Republican Party chairman, said an increase "would likely hurt the very people proponents are trying to help" as it would end up impacting businesses.

REGULAR READERS of this column are no doubt aware of my beef that what passes for "songs" in much of contemporary musical theater aren't songs at all, but merely sung dialogue and exposition. Well, it turns out I'm not the only one who yearns for a return to the days when Broadway scores boasted pieces with actual verses and hook-laden choruses. Robyn Goodman also feels that way. And better yet, she's in a position to actually do something about it. Goodman is a Broadway powerhouse who has produced such smash hits as "Avenue Q," "In the Heights" and "American Idiot.
