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.

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.

  When Jean Seaman, a district judge in Jamison, Bucks County, needed civil notices to be served for her court over the last four years, she often called on her daughter, Stacy Wertman. Wertman, an elected constable in Ivyland, works for five district courts in Bucks County, and she made about $11,000 last year completing jobs for her mother. Constables, locally elected officers who perform tasks such as serving warrants and transporting prisoners, are paid by the assignment, and judges can assign any task to any qualified constable they prefer.

The gray Toyota Corolla that Abbie Hoffman drove in Mexico during his fugitive years still sits in upper Bucks County, parked on the old farm where he lived and took his own life 25 years ago. "I've been wondering what to do with it," Michael Waldron, Hoffman's former landlord and friend, said last week. "But I'm not sure who would take it. " They still remember Hoffman at the Apple Jack bar in Point Pleasant, where he once shot pool and flirted with women. "He was pretty rowdy," said a 64-year-old regular, who didn't want to give his name.
