  In a state that has the most police departments in the country, Pennsylvania's number will shrink by one next month when two Bucks County boroughs combine forces. New Britain and Doylestown don't share a border, but they sit within a couple miles of each other in central Bucks County. The regionalization will save the boroughs $130,000 the first year, officials said. "Over the years we anticipate the savings to increase to the point where it would have made no economic sense not to regionalize," said New Britain Mayor David Holewinski.

Vacationing families from outside southeastern Pennsylvania typically flock to see the sights within a two-mile radius of Independence Hall in Philadelphia, then perhaps take a jaunt to Bucks County. The Bucks County Tourist Commission is working to reverse their itinerary. "We're now selling the idea of 'Come to Bucks County.' It's a reasonable place to stay and take a side trip into Philadelphia," says the commission's president, Albert Giagnacova. The nonprofit agency over the weekend conducted a complimentary tour for a dozen travel writers from outside Bucks and their families emphasizing "family fun" at several of the county's attractions.

Christopher Durang has many fans, not least of whom granted his Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike a Tony Award for best play in 2013. A longtime resident of Bucks County, he's also a mainstay around these parts. Princeton's McCarter Theatre premiered the comedy in 2012, and with this production, Philadelphia Theatre Company continues its long association with him. At its best, Durang's satirical vision is sharp, merciless, and hilarious. At its worst, he aims low at easy targets.

Like rain running off an open umbrella, the people of the Philadelphia region for decades have moved out toward its edges. Now, regional planners say, the pattern has been reversed. The rural northern edge of Bucks County is being invaded, not from inside the region, but from outside. Homeowners in central New Jersey have been crossing the Delaware River into Bucks, fleeing from towns where corporate office headquarters have been growing - depending on one's prejudice - like wild roses or like weeds in an untended graveyard.

THE WORDS comfort Harriet Levin, expressed in letters sent to her Bucks County home, or in emails, or in person when she kneels beside her son's grave at Mount Herzl military cemetery in Israel. There's almost always a crowd there, she said, paying respects to Staff Sgt. Michael Levin, his memorial covered in Phillies and Eagles gear. "Because of Michael," the visitors tell her. "Everybody just wants to leave a piece of themselves there," Levin, 63, said Wednesday from her home in Holland, Bucks County.
