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.

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.

I agree with Max Silverstein (Op-ed Page, July 3) regarding deinstitutionalization's being a successful solution for many patients and with some of the recommendations he noted from a special committee of the Mayor's Task Force on Homelessness. But the recommendation regarding emergency care is seriously flawed in my view and is contradictory to the concepts advanced about continuity of care. To resurrect a centralized reception center a la Philadelphia General Hospital without careful review of its clinical efficiency is likely to be a seriously regressive decision.

DEAR ABBY: Years ago, I dated an awful guy. He possessed just about every negative quality you could imagine. I dated him anyway because I was immature, depressed, and lonely. Since we broke up and I got my mental health back on track, my life has been wonderful. I keep moving up and forward in life. I hear through the grapevine that his life, on the other hand, is in shambles. I blame myself for wasting the time I did with him. Sometimes, when he pops into my head I get sick to my stomach.

On Oct. 9, 2010, in the fourth quarter of Vanderbilt's 52-6 victory over Eastern Michigan, Jordan Matthews caught a pass from a quarterback named Jared Funk. It went for 35 yards, and it was the first of Matthews' 262 receptions at Vanderbilt - the most of any player in Southeastern Conference history. On Sunday, in the fourth quarter of the Eagles' 29-10 victory over the Browns, Matthews caught a pass from a quarterback named Carson Wentz. It went for 16 yards, and it was the latest of Matthews' 159 receptions with the Eagles - the most of any player through 33 games in franchise history.

WASHINGTON - Odubel Herrera entered Sunday with 56 strikeouts in his last 57 games. He has walked just 16 times in that span as his batting average and on-base percentage have reached season lows. It is hard to believe this is the same hitter who started the season with one of baseball's most patient approaches. "I don't really know what has changed - all that I know is that before, it was easier for me to be selective," Herrera said through an interpreter. "It was easier for me to identify good pitches from bad pitches.

Both his parents had died, and once Ken Butler turned 18, he officially "aged out" of foster care. That meant the checks stopped coming to his foster parents. He was given a garbage bag for his belongings and put out on the street. "I was homeless, sleeping in SEPTA shelters, until I started working at three jobs and got an apartment," Butler recalls. Other kids had parents they could ask for help. But, he says: "I had to do it all on my own, which is impossible. Everybody needs somebody.

Musicians and management of the Philadelphia Orchestra have agreed to continue talking for an unspecified period beyond the end of the current labor deal, which had been set to expire at 12:01 a.m. Monday. The negotiating committee for players updated the orchestra's rank-and-file membership late Friday on the play-and-talk development, which does not formally extend the contract to a specific date, but keeps musicians working under the current terms. An initial offer of a new five-year contract called for no raises in the first two years, and 1 percent raises in each of the following three years.

Question: By mutual agreement, my ex and I ended our six-year relationship last year. We've remained friendly because we recognize that we simply grew up and grew apart since we met in college but still enjoy the friendship our relationship was rooted in. When we broke up, my mom made many insulting implications about me and spent weeks trying to find the "real reason" we ended it, wildly guessing everything from money problems to my not-approved-by-her career....

Arcadia University was roiled in 2013 when the board of trustees suddenly, and without explanation, fired its president. Three years later, troubles continue at the Glenside university. Ten members of the board of trustees have resigned in recent months, and five more have left as their terms expired, according to the outgoing president of the faculty senate, Peter Siskind. That means nearly half of the board that oversaw the university a year ago is no longer there. Those who have left include distinguished members, some with leadership positions and roles in overseeing finances.

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.
