Just as in It's a Wonderful Life , a "cash mob" of about 100 people crammed into the Newtown Hardware House on Saturday morning to help bail out the store and its popular owner. "It's like George Bailey - everything George did was for everyone in the town," said Michelle Knobloch, referring to the Frank Capra movie. "This is all for Dave Callahan. He is quietly philanthropic and giving in so many ways. " Callahan, who has run what he calls Bucks County's oldest hardware store for 27 years, represents "the integrity of this borough," Knobloch said.

Better to cash 'em than to trash 'em. In the case of three lottery tickets sold in the Philadelphia area, the cash is a nice piece of treasure. On Friday, Mega Millions produced two local $250,000 winners, one in Philadelphia and one in Delaware County. On Saturday, a $225,000 Cash 5 jackpot was won in Chester County. The Mega Millions tickets just missed the $12 million jackpot, matching the first five numbers - 4, 8, 17, 22 and 32, but not the Mega Ball, which was 8. They were sold at the Pathmark at 2101 Cottman Ave., in the Rhawnhurst section of Northeast Philadelphia, and at Westmont Beverage, 1101 Clifton Ave., in Collingdale.
