President Reagan said yesterday that he planned to tell Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev at their fifth and final meeting this week that President-elect George Bush represented continuity as well as change. Reagan said in his weekly radio address that the meeting in New York on Wednesday would not be a formal summit with a formal agenda. "But you can be sure that I'll be telling Mr. Gorbachev that George Bush represents change, yes, but also continuity," Reagan said.

Some NFL teams can put together an offensive line that remains intact for a few good years. Occasionally, a club gets lucky and the nucleus of an offensive front stays together for a decade. Of such good fortune, legends, such as the Redskins' "Hogs," are made. Coach Buddy Ryan's Eagles have enjoyed no such continuity on the offensive line. A player who started for two years at the same position would qualify as the unit's patriarch. At the moment, the longest string of consecutive regular-season and playoff starts is held by David Alexander with 30 - but he has had to do it at three different positions.

Vote early and often, the old saying goes. Just how often is the question now before Mount Holly voters. Currently the five Township Council members serve four-year terms, which begin and end at the same time. A referendum would amend the township charter so township elections would be held every two years, with three council members elected one year, and two elected two years later. The additional election would cost the township between $10,000 and $12,000. Council elections are held in May, with the next due in 1990.

The United States indicated continuity in its policy toward the Korean peninsula yesterday, saying it supported South Korea's engagement policy with the North. Secretary of State Colin L. Powell and South Korean Foreign Minister Lee Joung-binn said after a meeting that they had agreed to continue "close coordination" on their policies for the Stalinist state. Lee told reporters that he had Powell's "full support" for Seoul's "sunshine" policy of engagement with the North. The United States has worked in recent years to coordinate policy toward Pyongyang with Japan and South Korea.

As much as the Upper Merion track-and-field program has changed in the last year, Dave Symonds finds continuity in coaching his former athletes' children. Symonds coached at Upper Merion from 1970 to 1982 and Ursinus College from 1982 to 1993 before rejoining the Vikings. Upper Merion's top female distance runner is freshman Alli Andreyko, whose father, Andy, ran hurdles for Symonds in the 1970s. "This is when you know you've been around too long," Symonds said, laughing. "It's neat seeing the kids of kids you've coached.

Although it seemed that Doug Collins was trying to place more of the blame for his slumping 76ers on the players, the fact is that nothing the coach said after the Sixers' loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday was a reach. The 110-102 defeat was the Sixers' 19th loss in their last 26 games. Once again, they failed to get to the foul line and were unable to start the game with any purpose. Their 7-of-23 shooting from the field left them looking at a 28-18 deficit at the end of the first quarter.

DURING MUCH of the Andy Reid era, the offensive line has been an orderly kind of place, excepting the occasional anomaly, such as the great Shawn and Stacy Andrews adventure of 2009. Then last year, Reid brought in Howard Mudd as his offensive-line coach, and training camp suddenly took on a different tone. Befuddled rookies and brand-new free agents milled about, crashing into one another and nearly getting Michael Vick killed a couple of times in the chaotic preseason. Solid vets such as Jamaal Jackson, Winston Justice and Mike McGlynn, once prized by o-line-coach-turned-defensive-coordinator Juan Castillo, weren't deemed capable of starting under Mudd.

With a landmark group-home case behind them, the three members of the township's Zoning Hearing Board thought they might have a respite from challenge. They were wrong. The panel now faces the loss of a member who was not reappointed, and the likelihood that its most senior member, chairman Michael P. McCann, also will be replaced when his term is up in January 1997. News that Melvin M. Kreiner, a three-year veteran of the board and its vice chair, had not been reappointed came Tuesday when the new township commissioners President, Robert C. Gerhard, presented his choices for various committees and citizens' boards.

When the Villanova Wildcats got home from their successful trip down the long tunnel of the Big East tournament, Jay Wright started noticing all this stuff in the papers and on television about the Eagles. Apparently, there had been some moves or something. "I said, 'Arch, did you know they traded Foles?' " Wright said to point guard Ryan Arcidiacono. "He keeps up with all that. He just looked at me and nodded. " It's easy for a coach to get lost in the basketball at this time of year, particularly one at a relatively small school in a relatively new conference alignment that happens to become the second-seeded team in the entire country.

Under Page's firm guidance the opera proved dramatically and musically compelling despite a somewhat half-baked approach to questions of period style. Rhythmic crispness and appropriately brisk tempos were maintained throughout, together with admirably strong and propulsive continuity from one number to the next. The chorus had been especially well-drilled. The echo chorus in Act II deserves special mention for the striking realism with which the echo effect was produced. The succeeding "Echo Dance of the Furies" showed the orchestra unable to meet the chorus' standard in that regard.

An app created to lessen food waste during the Democratic National Convention will continue to serve the homeless after collecting more than five tons of food over eight days. The Food Connect app, launched July 15 by Food Connect and other local antihunger organizations, allows restaurants, caterers, and individuals to enter their location and have extra food picked up by a vehicle driven by volunteers. Between July 21 and 29, the app collected 11,239 pounds of food, enough for 9,366 meals, city officials said Thursday.

Protests roiled Day 2 of the Democratic National Convention, as thousands of demonstrators forced their way down Broad Street, with smaller crowds turning unruly and threatening as the evening wound down. The Secret Service arrested four people after they scaled a barrier at the Wells Fargo Center. The four - the first to be taken into custody in the first two days of the convention - were charged with entering restricted area and are to appear before a federal magistrate Wednesday.

Getting around Philadelphia on the second day of the Democratic National Convention was largely a repeat of the protests, detours, and delays that have inconvenienced the region since the event began. Once again, protests stalled service on the Broad Street Line on Tuesday afternoon from Oregon Avenue to the AT&T Station, the stop closest to the Wells Fargo Center, where the convention's evening events were held. SEPTA restored full service after 30 minutes, only to end all service between the two stations shortly before 7:30 p.m. for what officials described as security reasons.

If overcoming adversity leads to success, center Cole Bardreau should have a solid NHL career. Signed by the Flyers as a free agent last year, the 5-foot-10, 193-pound Bardreau - who fractured his neck while playing for Cornell in 2013 and was nearly paralyzed - looks like he has a future as a scrappy third- or fourth-line player. "He's tenacious, irritating, hard-working," general manager Ron Hextall said after watching Bardreau at the Flyers' development camp in Voorhees the other day. "Plays hard and plays physical.

For every $10 the city should get in taxes, a little less than a buck never shows. On Thursday, city officials thanked the 92 percent of Philadelphians who pay their taxes and announced a plan to recoup some of the estimated $492 million in unpaid property taxes that have accumulated over 40 years. The city issued a request for proposals to create a system for ongoing tax-lien sales. Councilman Allan Domb, who has been pushing for a program to address tax delinquencies since his Council campaign last year, was joined by Mayor Kenney and Council President Darrell Clarke to announce the initiative.

Raymond and Sandy Loewe just got back from a trip to Australia, having achieved one of their life goals: visiting all seven continents. They aren't even close to retiring, though they are in their mid-70s. "We both go to work every day, she at a nonprofit and me at my financial-planning firm. We have no plans to retire, but we take 14 to 15 weeks off a year," Raymond Loewe said. One thing they worried about was their care later in life: The couple have no children. "As I started thinking about aging," he said, "I asked myself, 'Who's going to take care of us if we can't take care of ourselves?

As the sun set over the Commodore Barry Bridge, a "Roland Alberg" chant broke out at Talen Energy Stadium. Subbed out, the Union midfielder walked off the pitch to a standing ovation in the 77th minute Wednesday night. "The fans, the staff, my teammates - I don't know the word," Alberg said, "but they love me. " And for good reason. Alberg continued his mid-June hot streak in the Union's 4-3 win over the Chicago Fire, overpowering defenders and scoring three goals along the way. The midfielder also made Union history with his third goal of the night, a hat trick in the 56th minute.

David Thomas, the longtime keeper of Pere Ubu's flame, has a reputation for being difficult. While musically and lyrically that complexity may be true - Ubu has, since 1975, been the soul of the American rock avant-garde, an art-punk ensemble inspired by early masters of the form such as Captain Beefheart, Albert Ayler, and the Red Krayola - in conversation, Thomas is as cozy as a kitten, if an occasionally craggy one. "I don't think I'm difficult,"...

Pete Mackanin shuffled his lineup Saturday afternoon at Citizens Bank Park, hoping to spark his listless offense. The Phillies manager batted Cody Asche leadoff for the first time in his career. Andres Blanco slotted into the No. 3 spot. And Maikel Franco was bumped down to the sixth spot. But a 4-1 loss to Arizona proved that there is little the manager can do to disguise his team's woes at the plate. The Phillies were no match for Arizona ace Zack Greinke, who allowed one run in eight innings.
