Although Springfield High had three players in double-figure scoring, coach Jack Spinella said it was defense that lifted the Spartans to a 55-46 victory over Christopher Dock in a Bicentennial League basketball game Tuesday night at Springfield. "We played a full-court pressing defense for the whole game, and we really gave them fits," Spinella said. "We switched back and forth from a man-to- man to a zone, and I was very happy with the success we had. " Springfield (8-8 overall, 6-5 league)

John Stay would love to take credit for developing Jennifer Ricco. After all, it would boost anyone's ego to claim responsibility for polishing the skills of a dominant scorer or sharpening the tremendous all- round instincts of a total basketball player. But the Mastbaum coach conceded that he has had little to do with turning Ricco into the force that has carried the Panthers to the Public League semifinals. "She was already like this when she got here," Stay said. "The best thing I ever did for her was not try to change her. " That was because there was no need.

GDANSK, Poland - Polish officials unveiled a statue of former President Ronald Reagan and Pope John Paul II on Saturday, honoring two men widely credited in this Eastern European country with helping to topple communism 23 years ago.

THE FIRING OF teacher Margie Winters by Waldron Mercy Academy in Merion on the basis of Winters' marriage to another woman comes at a time that guaranteed this to be a hot-button issue. It's just weeks after the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the legality of gay marriage, and months away from a visit from the pope, who is known for his messages of love, forgiveness and his suggestion of tolerance for gays. Layer this on top of many Catholics struggling to reconcile their faith against decades of church scandals involving child abuse by priests.

Upper Merion High School students might be required to take two health courses and an extra semester of social studies if the school board approves a proposal to revise graduation requirements on Jan. 28. The number of credits a student needs to graduate would remain the same, which is two credits more than the 21 required by the state, said Laura Ann Michener, assistant superintendent, at the board's workshop Monday night. Under the proposal, students would have to take 0.8 credits in health - 0.4 credits more than current Upper Merion requirements - and 1.6 credits in physical education.

Sanders Haldeman.

The collegiate fight to attract older suburban students is heating up. The new school in town - the University of Phoenix - yesterday announced a pact with Montgomery County Community College that will make it easier and possibly cheaper for the college's graduates to enroll at Phoenix. Under the agreement, Phoenix would recognize all associate degree-related credits from Montgomery Community students who enroll at the university. Universities often do not accept all credits that students earn at a community college, forcing them to take courses over again, frequently at a higher price.

THERE IS A METHOD to what some readers consider my madness. Some people hate that I hate debt. Others disagree when I encourage families not to borrow for college. And, man, do I get a lot of email when I recommend that college students, especially freshmen, not have credit cards. I value this feedback, so I created the Color of Money "Talk Back" feature, in which folks provide counterarguments to something I've written. "I disagree with the idea that credit cards aren't important for college students," wrote Sallie of Freeport, Maine.

Most of the candidates in the large field of Republicans running for president seem content to act as if Donald Trump will fade from the limelight if they simply ignore him. They may be right. Then again, Trump could be beating them in the polls because he's talking about what many aren't: immigration. Trump is wrong about how the issue should be addressed, of course, but if he can get the other Republicans to discuss what may be their party's most vulnerable issue in a presidential election, he will have done a good deed.

BESSEMER, Ala. - If, behind every good man there's a good woman, then what stands behind a grown man? Because Eagles defensive coordinator Billy Davis was asked how he would describe linebacker DeMeco Ryans. "He's a grown man," Davis said. "He's very secure with himself. He's a natural leader because of that security. People who are calm under pressure - people tend to follow those guys. [The moment] doesn't get too big for him. He settles people down who are kind of losing their mind.

Gov. Christie announced Tuesday that he had signed into law a measure that will increase a tax credit for New Jersey's working poor. He proposed the increase at the end of the state budget process last month. But the Republican governor wasn't the only one crowing about the law, which will increase the state's earned income tax credit from 20 percent to 30 percent of the federal credit, benefiting 500,000 households. "I am pleased the governor signed my bill to increase the tax cut for the working poor," Senate President Stephen Sweeney (D., Gloucester)

TRENTON - New Jersey lawmakers on Monday passed a measure recommended by Gov. Christie to increase a tax credit for the working poor that could boost the take-home pay of more than a half-million households. The move came after Christie rejected the Democratic-controlled Legislature's proposal to raise taxes on income exceeding $1 million. The Republican governor vetoed that bill Friday and instead proposed increasing the state's earned income tax credit (EITC) from 20 percent to 30 percent of the federal credit.

Two Chester County brothers are fighting back against federal regulators. The Powhatan Energy Fund, owned by Malvern natives Richard and Kevin Gates, made millions in the energy market in 2010. The government said it was too much. Late last month, federal regulators hit their energy fund and its associates with a $34.5 million fine for market manipulation. But the identical twins, who graduated from Conestoga High School in 1990, say they plan to ignore the fine, which will likely force the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to take them to federal court.

TRENTON - Gov. Christie on Friday signed a $33.8 billion budget for the fiscal year that begins Wednesday, vetoing tax increases passed by the Legislature to fund the pension system but extending an olive branch to Democrats by proposing an increase in a tax credit for the working poor. Christie used his line-item veto authority to nix measures passed by the Democratic-controlled Legislature to raise taxes on income exceeding $1 million and on corporations, which Democrats said would have generated more than $1 billion in revenue.

WHEN THE Phillies went down to Georgia to scout Griffin High School's Cornelius Randolph, the scouts wanted to know who his hitting instructor was. A swing that pretty - one Phillies director of amateur scouting Johnny Almaraz says produced the "best bat in the country" among high schoolers - must have been through hours of training and mastering with a professional, right? Not really. Randolph never had a professional lesson. He did, though, spend countless hours in the batting cage with his father, Cedric.
