The situations are the same, yet different for Seneca's football team. For the second year in a row, the Golden Eagles have a chance to play giant-slayer, with an opportunity to knock off The Inquirer's No. 1-ranked South Jersey team, Cherokee. Last year, Seneca played the role perfectly, beating an undefeated Cherokee team, 14-7, on Thanksgiving to finish with an 8-3 record. Once again, Cherokee is 10-0, ranked No. 1, and headed to the South Jersey Group 4 final, in which the Chiefs will host Oakcrest on Dec. 4. That's where the similarities end. Seneca was a Group 3 playoff qualifier last year, but it enters Thursday's 11 a.m. game at Cherokee with a 4-5 record.

The Kansas City Chiefs tried to bury themselves with mistakes, but the Los Angeles Raiders let them up one too many times. That was enough, and the Chiefs escaped with a 24-21 victory. "Everything that was going wrong for us did go wrong," Chiefs coach Marty Schottenheimer said. "Just another exciting night at Arrowhead Stadium. " No sooner had an offensive pass-interference penalty appeared to doom Kansas City than quarterback Steve DeBerg hit Tim Barnett with a 6-yard touchdown pass with 47 seconds left for the winning points.

Coming into the weekend, Kansas City found itself all alone atop the AFC West for the first time since Oct. 25, 1981. Sure hope it was nice while it lasted. The Denver Broncos (5-2) saw to that by beating the visiting Chiefs yesterday, 19-16. It was the ninth straight time the Chiefs (5-3), who had won four in a row, have lost at Mile High Stadium. And Kansas City coach Marty Schottenheimer is 1-7 against the Broncos, 0-5 at Denver. Before yesterday, Denver quarterback John Elway had thrown more interceptions against the Chiefs (24)

The Kansas City Chiefs said yesterday they will install a grass field at Arrowhead Stadium - perhaps in time for the 1994 season. The Chiefs join the Kansas City Royals in switching to grass on their neighboring fields at the Harry S. Truman Sports Complex. The Royals plan to play on grass at Kauffman Stadium in 1995. The Chiefs said they hope to have grass installed for 1994, but if that is not feasible it will be installed in the spring and summer of 1995. A nine-year study by Dr. John W. Powell, of the University of Iowa, in which he catalogued virtually every NFL injury, concluded there was a "statistically significant difference" between the Astroturf injury rates for knee sprains and knee injuries on grass.

There was a time when the Mount St. Joseph's girls' soccer team was just about left for dead. Not too long ago, actually. The Chiefs had lost in the semifinals of the Catholic Academies League playoffs to upstart Merion Mercy, and an invitation to the PIAA District 1 tournament was not a certainty. But the Chiefs got a bid, and they put on quite a show. They knocked off two of the top seeds in the tournament, Strath Haven and Great Valley. But when it came down to league rival Villa Joseph Marie in the district final, the eighth-seeded Chiefs just ran out of gas. Denise Serafin got the Chiefs on the board first, but Jems senior Erin Schlussel scored twice in the fourth quarter and Villa took a 3-1 decision in front of a spirited crowd at the United German Hungarian Club in Oakford Monday night.

Wes Hopkins, the comebacking former Eagles free safety, flew to Kansas City yesterday and worked out for the Chiefs' coaching staff. Negotiations between Hopkins's agent, Harry Himes, and Kansas City could get under way as early as today. "Wes informed me that the workout went very well," Himes said. "He is looking forward to exploring the opportunity of playing for this championship- caliber team. " Hopkins, 31, feels he has fully recovered from offseason microfracture surgery on his left knee, and has been exploring job possibilities with NFL teams other than the Eagles.

THE KANSAS CITY CHIEFS hired former Vikings coach Brad Childress, reuniting him with his former Eagles boss, Andy Reid. Childress, who spent last season as the offensive coordinator for the Cleveland Browns, will be the Chiefs' spread game analyst and work on special projects. He spent 5 years as the Minnesota head coach (2006-10), a stint that included two division titles (2008-09). The team was 12-4 in 2009. Childress previously spent seven seasons (1999-2005) with the Eagles, where he worked with Reid, the new Chiefs head coach.

Gunther Cunningham, who screams at players one minute and hugs them the next but apparently always commands their respect, is Kansas City's choice to replace Marty Schottenheimer as coach. As the Chiefs' defensive coordinator for four years, the intense, personable Cunningham became popular with everyone in the organization and twice molded a unit that led the NFL in fewest points allowed. "I am euphoric at finally getting this opportunity," said Cunningham, who was born in Germany and moved to the United States at age 12 when his mother married an American serviceman.

After an jolt in the first four minutes of the season opener, the Cherokee girls' basketball team stressed getting off to a good start the next time out. That came yesterday when the Chiefs started well and finished even better for a 52-39 win over Eastern in an Olympic Conference American Division game. Defending American Division champion Cherokee is 1-1 overall and 1-0 in the American Division. This game contrasted greatly from the Chiefs' opener, a 68-49 loss to talented Timber Creek on Friday.

The Joe Valerio watch officially has begun. He needs just 125 more touchdowns to tie the NFL record. That is assuming Jerry Rice retires this week. OK, Valerio admits, it is a reach. But then, so was the very idea he would score the first touchdown in yesterday's Kansas City-San Francisco, Joe Montana-Steve Young epic at Arrowhead Stadium. "We figured Joe was the last guy they'd look for in that situation," said Chiefs coach Marty Schottenheimer, explaining why they threw the ball to Valerio, a 6-5, 295-pound offensive lineman from Penn, on fourth-and-goal.

In February, the country was stunned by a measles outbreak in California that highlighted how many adults and children were not immunized. Since then, the Pennsylvania Department of Health has redoubled efforts to improve the state's immunization rates. Now, as another school year is about to begin, Physician General Rachel Levine is pushing to end Pennsylvania's eight-month grace period, which is far longer than that of most other states. It has meant that kids can be in kindergarten almost an entire academic year without getting required immunizations.

The allegations were startling: Prosecutors said parents had starved their 6-year-old to the point that he looked like a child from a Third World country. But something didn't seem right to Keir Bradford-Grey, who was the new Montgomery County chief public defender when the case began in 2012. She dug into the case and learned that the boy had not been neglected, but had a medical condition that kept him from absorbing nutrients. After taking her findings to prosecutors, both sides agreed to a pre-trial diversion program so the family could stay together while officials monitored the boy's treatment.

Robert J. Ruff, 73, of Philadelphia, a retired deputy chief and fire marshal who served the city's Fire Department for 45 years, died Sunday, Aug. 2, of cancer at home. Mr. Ruff's life centered on family and work. Former Fire Commissioner Harold B. Hairston said Mr. Ruff had "a way about him that demanded excellence and attention to detail. " In the field, Mr. Ruff was respected and loved by the firefighters, Hairston said. When the commissioner asked Mr. Ruff to become a fire marshal and work out of the department's headquarters in 1997, he initially didn't want the assignment.

HARRISBURG - Marcus Brown, whose nomination to lead the Pennsylvania State Police was quashed earlier this year, has been tapped again by Gov. Wolf for a public safety post. Wolf on Thursday appointed Brown director of the Governor's Office of Homeland Security, where he will lead the state's response to terrorism and infrastructure threats. "The commonwealth must take every step necessary to protect its citizens from terrorist threats, and I am confident that Col. Brown's leadership and experience will be an asset to the commonwealth in this role," Wolf said in a statement.

Placed purposefully around Gary Tuggle's new office are small treasures picked up on past assignments: a Don Quixote statue recognizing his work in Trinidad, a Baltimore Ravens cap from his hometown, and, from a visit to Colombia, three dried opium poppies. "I use them as inspiration," he said of the flowers whose seed pods are the source of heroin. "Every time I look at them, it reminds me of how bad the problem is in this country, and how much needs to be done to combat it. " In June, Tuggle reported to work as special agent in charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration's Philadelphia Field Division, which covers Pennsylvania and Delaware.

Gov. Wolf on Monday nominated a retired state police major who grew up in North Philadelphia and lives in Chester County to be Pennsylvania's next police commissioner. Tyree C. Blocker, whose assignments included director of the state police's bureau of drug law enforcement, is Wolf's second choice for the job, following his controversial and politically costly nomination of Marcus Brown. Brown, a former head of the Maryland State Police, withdrew his name from consideration in mid-June after Wolf failed to get enough support among Republican lawmakers in Harrisburg.

Residents questioned township supervisors in a Chester County township Wednesday night, at a special meeting called to address allegations that officials made a secret deal to keep paying the longtime police chief after he retired. In a lawsuit filed last week against Kennett Township and the former chief, Albert McCarthy, Michael Hammon contends the supervisors signed a retirement pact with McCarthy on May 7, but never publicly discussed or voted on it, violating Pennsylvania's Sunshine Act. Supervisors and their legal counsel would not answer questions Wednesday about whether the agreement violated the Sunshine Act or why the agreement was not approved at a board meeting.

FIRST SANTA CLAUS, then the Easter Bunny, now Chief Transparency? Is there nothing left to believe in? Consider this: The SEPTA police department had an ugly incident on their hands last month when cellphone video that went viral caught a veteran officer grabbing an allegedly fare-evading father by the throat while the man held his 18-month-old daughter. At a subsequent press conference, SEPTA police Chief Thomas Nestel, the city's most vocal champion of police reform and a practitioner of transparency, was contrite.

"When I was a boy, I had trouble reading," Charles said. "I found out I had a learning disability. People made fun of me. They said I would never go anywhere.
