CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Republican soul-searching begins in earnest this week as GOP officials from every state in the nation come together for the first time since their party's November shellacking. There is broad agreement that the Republican Party needs to undergo fundamental changes to remain competitive as surging minority populations reshape the American electorate. But there is no clear path forward. And even as they gather in a Charlotte, N.C., hotel this week - just days after President Obama began his second term - Republicans are in some ways as divided as ever.

Peco Energy Co.'s parent company Exelon Corp. reached an agreement with Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser on its proposed $6.8 billion merger Pepco Holdings Inc., resurrecting a deal that District of Columbia regulators nixed in August. Exelon agreed to invest $78 million in the nation's capital, up from the $14 million it had previously proposed, according to the mayor's office. The District of Columbia Public Service Commission has scheduled a Wednesday vote. The merger already passed muster in New Jersey, where Pepco operates Atlantic City Electric Co., and in Delaware and Maryland, where it owns Delmarva Power.

It looks as if the Democratic field is clear for State Sen. Barbara Buono to take on Republican Gov. Christie in New Jersey's gubernatorial election in November. Senate President Stephen Sweeney (D., Gloucester), considered a possible contender, wants to focus on maintaining a Democratic hold of the Legislature, he said in a statement issued Monday. "Is there any question about the havoc and pain a Republican Legislature would inflict on the middle class, labor, women, and our seniors?"

Barack Obama would not be president today without the help of one person. Surprisingly, the media and pundits continue to ignore this story line. Who is the person without whom Obama would not be president? George W. Bush? No, but good guess. His incompetence enhanced Obama's brand as a sorely needed change agent. David Axelrod? No, but that's a good guess, too. He was no less instrumental as the chief strategist for Obama's presidential campaign. Hillary Clinton? Nope.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: I was sure I wanted to spend the rest of my life with my boyfriend of three years, until I asked him if he felt the same, and he said no. He says that he doesn't want to get married or move in together, but that he might feel different in the future. We discussed breaking up, and he made it clear he didn't want that. Where do we/I go from here? Now I feel insecure and unsure. Part of me thinks I should just enjoy the relationship without needing to be sure of a future, but a big part of me feels betrayed that he doesn't want to make a commitment.

The tragic death of Len Bias has again elicited a burst of medical and moral warnings from the media. Unfortunately, it's unlikely to stem the epidemic of alcohol and drug abuse. Perhaps the "war against drugs" is neglecting some basic causes and concentrating on effects. Of course the availability of drugs is an important factor. But widespread demoralization must also be considered. A generation has grown up under the threat of nuclear annihilation. In an apparently affluent society, masses of youth see no clear path to economic stability and independence.

Northern Hunterdon at Eastern, Thursday, 4 p.m. Sixth-seeded Eastern has a clear path to the semifinals of the Group 4 state lacrosse tournament. The Vikings' offense is led by senior attack Mike D'Olio and junior midfielder Mike Jevic; each has 39 goals. Senior goalie Dylan Florig anchors a sturdy defense. Northern Hunterdon, the No. 14 seed, advanced with an upset of third-seeded Hunterdon Central. The winner of this game likely will face second-seeded Montclair in Saturday's state semifinals.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz apparently have reached an agreement to combine forces against front-runner Donald Trump in coming Republican presidential primaries. In nearly simultaneous statements Sunday night, Cruz's campaign agreed not to contest Oregon and New Mexico, where Kasich is doing well, and to concentrate on the May 3 Indiana primary, where the conservative favorite Cruz is running just behind Trump in polls. "To ensure that we nominate a Republican who can unify the Republican Party and win in November, our campaign will focus its time and resources in Indiana and in turn clear the path for Gov. Kasich to compete in Oregon and New Mexico, and we would hope that allies of both campaigns would follow our lead, Cruz campaign manager Jeff Roe said in a statement.

At his concert Friday night, pianist Jason Moran seemed wistful, noting how music always dissipates while artists who make physical objects create something that lasts. The comment might have dissipated too at one of his more successful concerts. Moran, 30, is well known for his taste in furniture, and he played Friday on his Susanne Fossgreen, Scandinavian-style chair, not the customary piano bench. But his dismissal of music seemed to leach into the performance, raising questions about Moran and his art. The two sets at Zellerbach Theater in Penn's Annenberg Center were sketches in frustration: moments of promise surrounded by impenetrable clatter.

This was Carson Wentz's day, but the Eagles couldn't avoid the other quarterback who wasn't in the room and hasn't been at the NovaCare Complex since requesting to be traded on Monday. Nor should Howie Roseman and Doug Pederson have been allowed to avoid him after they made the unprecedented decision to move up to the No. 2 pick in the NFL draft for a quarterback when they already had an entrenched starter in place. Whether you agree with Sam Bradford's reaction to what transpired last week or not - and it says here that he has overestimated his worth - what shouldn't be argued is that the Eagles did a poor job of anticipating the aftershocks of their franchise-altering trade.

VISION ZERO, Complete Streets, Smart Growth or any other name it is called is an attack upon drivers. Vision Zero started in Sweden as an approach to minimizing traffic accidents and fatalities, including cars hitting bicyclists and pedestrians. This initiative is being heavily pushed by the Kenney administration and the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia. Basically, the initiative is designed to make life so miserable that people will not drive. The speed-camera aspect is the most outrageous one. Where these are used, the speed limits are artificially low and tickets go out to drivers just barely above the speed limit.

TODAY, as with so many of our days, Clout's attention turns to the cold hard cash of politics. Case in point: A new Quinnipiac University Poll that tells an old and sad story for Gov. Corbett . Democrat Tom Wolf leads Corbett by 24 points, 59 percent to 35 percent with fewer than eight weeks until the Nov. 4 general election. That matches up with the results of other recent polls, including the Aug. 28 Daily News / Franklin & Marshall College Poll. The Quinnipiac pollsters asked Wolf supporters if they were voting for him or against Corbett.

Emotion fuels Jada Atchison's game. During a timeout with 11 seconds left Tuesday night, her team down by a point, Atchison openly cried. And she didn't hide her tears as she addressed her teammates. "I looked at them and told them, 'Ladies, this game isn't over yet,' " she said. Moments later Atchison, the point guard for the Burlington City girls' basketball team, picked up a loose ball at midcourt with a clear path to the net. "Get it and get to the basket - that's it, that's all I'm thinking," Atchison said after hitting the winning layup in a come-from-behind 50-49 win at Holy Cross.

WASHINGTON - Federal authorities would be required to establish vast new border fences and surveillance as part of a bipartisan Senate plan aimed at allowing the nation's 11 million illegal immigrants to earn permanent residency and, potentially, citizenship, aides familiar with the proposal said Wednesday. The provisions would call on the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to increase surveillance to cover 100 percent of the southwestern border and to apprehend 90 percent of the people who attempt to enter the United States illegally, said the aides, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
