Despite entering last year's Lower Montco American Legion League playoffs as the fourth seed, Cedarbrook won the championship and represented the league in the Region 3 tournament. So neither manager Jordan Prusack nor his players were concerned that the Angels will enter this year's postseason as a fourth-place underdog yet again. They are 10-8-1 entering tonight's game with Horsham (11-7-1), which is 2-0-1 against Cedarbrook and therefore will finish in third place even if the Angels win. The Generals (16-4)

With bandages on his face and his left hand and wrist, Cedarbrook coach Jon Cross looked as if he had gone to battle for his team. And that was even before the Angels stepped on the field against visiting Fort Washington Tuesday night in a key Lower Montco American Legion game. But the real battle hadn't been fought yet. In a wild sixth inning, the Generals tied the game with three runs, including the tying run, scored on a disputed call. The call resulted in Cross and a couple of his players being ejected from the game.

Putting on a show probably was never this difficult for the teen thespians at Cedarbrook Middle School. This, after all, is the Cheltenham Township school that has tackled The Laramie Project and other challenging pieces of theater. But last year, the Cedarbrook cast and crew became a troupe without a stage, displaced because of an insidious interloper. Mold had invaded their classrooms, and officials closed the school. "It was hard to say goodbye," said Robin Rosenberg, Cedarbook's longtime show director.

PHILADELPHIA The last time State Sen. LeAnna Washington had to compete in a primary, she swept away the competition, winning 86.3 percent of the vote. This year's contest, experts say, won't be so easy. Even before she was charged with felony misuse of public resources, Washington had two Democrats lined up to challenge her in the May 20 primary. "Somebody has got to represent the community who is fully committed to the job," said Art Haywood, a lawyer and Cheltenham Township commissioner who is seeking the nomination.

CHELTENHAM When planning an elaborate, 86-person middle school musical, distraction can be a director's worst nightmare.

Cedarbrook Middle School in Cheltenham is scheduled to open two weeks late, on Sept. 16, as crews continue to remove mold from the campus. The mold was discovered in some classrooms and hallways by maintenance crews in July, and remediation efforts are underway for the entire building, the district said in a letter Wednesday to parents, teachers and staff. An independent environmental auditor will have to certify air-quality levels before students and staff will be allowed to return, Superintendent Natalie Thomas said.

A Philadelphia jury has found a 19-year-old Cedarbrook woman guilty of second-degree murder for the 2010 robbery and shooting of an 87-year-old World War II veteran. The Common Pleas Court jury of seven women and five men deliberated about two hours before returning the guilty verdicts against India Spellman in the Aug. 18, 2010 death of George Greaves. The jury also found her guilty of the armed robbery of a woman pedestrian two hours before Greaves was shot. Spellman, who twice rejected plea deals by the prosecutor, began fighting tears at the verdict as members of her family shrieked and ran from the courtroom.
