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.

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.

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.

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.

Abington has advanced to the quarterfinal round of the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association District 1 Class AAAA basketball tournament tomorrow night against West Chester Henderson, but Souderton gave the Ghosts all they could handle Tuesday night. The final score of 61-38 was padded by a 22-point Abington advantage in the fourth quarter. After three periods, host Abington (23-2), the district's third seed, held a slim 31-30 lead. The Indians (15-11), the district's 14th seed, were able to take advantage of the Ghosts' man-to-man defense, whipping passes into the lane for uncontested baskets while shooting 48 percent from the floor and 6- for-8 from the foul line in the first three quarters.

This wasn't supposed to happen. Not to undefeated, unthreatened Ridley. Here it was the fourth quarter against Interboro on Thanksgiving Day and Ridley's first-team defense was still on the field. And they were backing up. When the final quarter began, Ridley was ahead, 14-7, but Interboro's outstanding junior quarterback, Chris Schaub, kept rolling out and picking at the Raiders secondary, bringing the Bucs inside the Ridley 10-yard line. Completing 6 of 8 passes on the drive, Schaub had Interboro at the Ridley 6-yard line in the opening minute of the fourth quarter.

Of the many positive things that were said during two days of hearings on the Philadelphia school system's request for a tax increase earlier this week, we were particularly struck by the remarks of John Wilkinson, a city resident who is headmaster of the Germantown Friends School. Mr. Wilkinson aimed his testimony at the people who don't have their kids in the city's schools, and he didn't just appeal to their altruism. He said that all of us will suffer "if Philadelphia does not find the will and a way to avert the personal and public disaster of an undereducated, unskilled, underemployed and desperate citizenry.

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.

Peering over the edge of a jagged, 30-foot cliff into the calm, pristine waters of the Mediterranean Sea, my stomach twisted and turned like a roller coaster. I was frozen. Unable to take a leap of faith, I preoccupied myself by reflecting on the unforgettable chain of events that culminated with this epic test of will in the beautiful town of Positano, Italy. As I stepped off the tour bus, the blissful landscape of the Amalfi Coast overwhelmed my senses. Breathing in the fresh sea air, I strolled through the scene of an Italian postcard: Tiers of pastel blue, red, and yellow houses lined the mountainside, radiant violet flowers dangled from the overhang above the cobblestone walkway, and the welcoming, crystal-clear waters of the Mediterranean enchanted me like a horde of sirens.

Now it's Romney vs. Obama. With that in mind and a bruising primary fight finally behind him, Mitt Romney bathed in the praise Tuesday night of a cheering crowd of Chester County Republicans - finally, their party's presidential nominee in all but name. Hours earlier, Rick Santorum, the former Massachusetts governor's last significant GOP rival, suspended his campaign amid a family health crisis and a growing chorus of calls from party leaders for him to drop out of the race.

HOW WILL Philadelphia be different after it begins operating as a truly modern city? We may begin answering that if Council approves next week, as expected, a new zoning code that it voted out of committee yesterday after a hearing that began calmly and ended in a few fireworks. In fact, the range of yesterday's hearings provided a living example of what seems very right with the new code: It doesn't please everyone. And that's a sign to us that the years of work it has taken to create a new code, involving countless public meetings, workshops, hearings and forums, and more negotiation than many Middle East peace talks, has worked, and yielded a sound code.

Last week, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, in conjunction with the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta and the Kauffman Foundation, conducted a two-day conference on employment and entrepreneurship. The bottom-line concern, of course: the fact that even though the economic expansion is more than two years old - the recession officially ended in June 2009, and the economy has grown ever since - the unemployment rate is still 9 percent. And of particular concern is the duration of unemployment - millions of people have remained jobless for a long time.

It's something folks at Temple won't admit. At least not publicly. But anything other than winning a Mid-American Conference championship might be considered a failure. Beating teams by an average margin of 36.5 points, the Owls (4-2, 2-1 MAC) proved that they can be dominant. Starting 14 seniors, Temple has the leadership to get through tough stretches. And looking at Temple's remaining schedule, Ohio (4-2, 1-1) is the only opponent with a winning record. Three of the Temple's remaining conference foes - Buffalo (2-4, 1-1)
