The less things change, the more things stay the same in Lower Gwynedd. The Lower Gwynedd Board of Supervisors made quick work this week of deciding who will bang the gavel as its chairman in 1989. That supervisor is Ed Brandt. Brandt, first elected as chairman of the board in 1988, was the unanimous choice of the five supervisors at their reorganization meeting Tuesday night. Or was he? "Nobody saw me vote," said Supervisor Dick Landis. To be sure, Landis did not raise his voice when the vote was taken.

A four-page printout of the tweets also was circulated on campus.

SEPTA's board chairman said Thursday that he has no second thoughts about buying the railcars that were recently pulled from service due to flaws found in one of their key components. "I was very comfortable with those guys being able to do the job," said Pasquale "Pat" Deon, referring to Hyundai Rotem, which received the contract to build 120 cars 10 years ago. Deon was board chairman at the time. Hyundai Rotem's railcars, the Silverliner V's, were delivered from 2010 to 2013 and this month were revealed to have fatigue cracks in equalizer beams, pieces that transfer weight from a car to the axles.

Morris Cheston Jr., 78, of Spring House, a lawyer as renowned for his civic work as for his legal skills, died Sunday, June 5, of a heart attack at home. Mr. Cheston joined the Philadelphia law firm of Ballard Spahr L.L.P. in 1964. He became a partner in 1971 and senior counsel in 2009. His specialties were securities and corporate law, and legal matters involving the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. Perhaps his signature achievement in Philadelphia came in 1997 when, as board chairman of Pennsylvania Hospital, he campaigned for and implemented the merger of Pennsylvania Hospital and the University of Pennsylvania Health System into Penn Medicine.

It was a pretty fast summer-job search for the son of the board chairman of the $12 billion Hershey Trust. And his dad took care of it. Robert Cavanaugh told the trust's top executive last April that his son Robert might have missed the window to get a summer internship and needed help. Within days, the executive, Eric Henry, contacted two money-management firms under contract with the charity and emailed the son's resumé. By the end of the month, both firms had made offers for summer internships.
