Greg Farrow is getting smarter as he gets older. After wrapping up his first player-of-the-year award in the Philadelphia section of the PGA last week, the 52-year-old Farrow explained how a senior beat the younger pros for the section's most prestigious honor. "I picked the best sport to play because you can play forever," Farrow said. "As you get older, your putting can get better, your course management can get better, and I may even have outsmarted most of these guys. " Farrow, the director of golf at Deerwood Country Club in Westampton, Burlington County, put together a hot stretch of midsummer golf when he won the Conestoga Classic, the Burlington Classic, the Plymouth Classic and the New Jersey State Open.

The Octorara school board expects tomorrow to adopt a 1991-92 budget of $15.4 million. The total is $100,000 less than the budget tentatively adopted last month. But real-estate taxpayers will only get a $20,000 break. The remaining $80,000 is a cut on paper, having to do with the complicated financing of special education, school board President John W. Hagen said Wednesday. An unexpected 20 percent increase in earned-income tax revenues will reduce the burden for property owners, according to school officials.

Starting in 2013, individuals will be able to search a single online database to see what the state pays their senator's secretary, or the amount spent to repave a highway, which agency spent it, and who beat out their brother's construction firm for the contract.

Step inside Cabela's latest cathedral to the back country and you are confronted by a life-size diorama: A whitetail deer pursued by two ravenous-looking wolves. The deer appears to have no chance. The guess here is that the same can be said for the typical sportsman who wanders inside the 110,000-square-foot emporium for all things outdoors, which is set to open May 1 at the Christiana Mall in Newark, Del. If you love guns, rods or just anything camouflaged, expect to have your wallet field-dressed by the time you finish wandering the myriad retail trails in the region's first Cabela's outlet.

When floods of data - linking patients to doctors, gadgets, images, and medicines - used to surge through two aging computer centers near Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals' Walnut Street headquarters, senior director Paul S. O'Connor Sr. worried his network could be "one waterpipe-break away" from paralysis. That's why, over the last two years, Jefferson contracted two off-campus computer-server operators to link its network to Verizon, Comcast, and a half-dozen specialty telecom carriers.

Despite a keen interest in African American history, Warren Oree had never heard of the violent standoff that came to be known as the Christiana riot. Then Oree came upon a two-sentence summary of the 1851 confrontation, which involved three escaped slaves, a strong-willed free black man, and a slave owner intent on retrieving his property. That was enough to spark the bassist/composer's curiosity. "I don't knock the Underground Railroad," Oree says, "but for too long African Americans have been pictured as either running away or cowering, and that's not a true picture.
