David Johnson, the charismatic chief executive of Campbell Soup Co., has always had a touch for the theatrical. And now he has audiences on Wall Street and at the company's Camden headquarters on the edge of their seats. Johnson's five-year contract expires July 31, a week before his 65th birthday. But Johnson has not given any indication whether he will stay or go. While the chief executive is critical to any company, Johnson's role at Campbell has been viewed as paramount.

For years, David Johnson had been playing to the Wall Street crowd, touting his company, trumpeting its results and cozying up to analysts. Now on this frosty morning in February, he literally stood above it all on a balcony overlooking the New York Stock Exchange. Finally, with boyish glee, Johnson, chairman, chief executive and president of the Campbell Soup Co., rang the bell to start the day's trading. "This is where the battle royal takes place," he told the chairman of the exchange, Richard A. Grasso.

With their ex-coach a win shy of 200, many former Downingtown West girls' basketball players returned to take in Thursday night's Ches-Mont League game against visiting Downingtown East. And thanks to Maddie Dew's 16 points, they did not leave disappointed, as David Johnson earned his 200th career victory with a 32-25 triumph. "Great that it happens to be against East," Johnson said. Katy Steffen aided Dew with 10 rebounds, and the Whippets closed out the win with key free throws.

Three months after being released from custody for raping two 9-year-old boys, David Johnson began surfing the Internet for a young sex partner. A 15-year-old Olney boy responded after Johnson, 22, advertised his desire. The boy began a chat-room relationship with Johnson, and met him in October 1997, said Assistant District Attorney Eric Gibson yesterday. Johnson eventually lured the boy to a Roosevelt Boulevard hotel, where the two had consensual sex. Gibson said it's illegal for anyone under 16 to consent to sex, and Johnson was aware of the boy's age. After a jury heard the sordid details of the relationship, it convicted Johnson of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and corrupting the morals of a minor.

The classroom is quiet but for the rustle of paper. Every student is intent on his own work, scarcely even aware of the competitors in the room. The brighter students are writing rapidly, while their slower counterparts are somewhat more plodding, but everyone is working. What's wrong with this picture of earnest students competing as hard as they can for top grades - or at least for the best grade they can achieve? For most teachers - indeed for most people who think seriously about education - the only thing wrong with the picture is its unreality.

Edward "Buddy" Tyler just can't seem to extricate himself from that morass of yellow tape he has been tangled in. An effort is being mounted to recall Tyler from his office as mayor of Fieldsboro, the Burlington County borough that drew national attention after Tyler and the Borough Council last month banned yellow ribbons on borough property. The decision angered many residents, who wanted to show support of American troops in Iraq by displaying the traditional symbol of safe return for loved ones.

ON NOV. 23, 2011, with Turkey Day 1 day away, David Johnson was not exactly inclined to give thanks. He woke up that morning with numbness in the right side of his mouth and when he took a look in a mirror . . . "It was like I had 20 pieces of bubblegum in there," he said, laughing. Not quite. What he had was a cyst and, boy, did it ever turn his life upside down. "Even now," he said, "I still have to take care of that area every day. I have to wash it out with saltwater.

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., chairing a Philadelphia roundtable on policing issues Thursday, told attendees not to waste the opportunity they had before them. "Too often, we have not approached these problems" - namely issues of trust between police officers and the communities they serve - "with the candor I'm seeking today," he said. Holder was on the fifth stop in a national listening tour in the wake of widespread nationwide protests against the deaths of unarmed African American men at the hands of white police officers in recent months.

NEW YORK - Tackle is the new quarterback. The last time the Eagles held a pick among the top four in the NFL draft, it was 1999, the Year of the Quarterback . . . or so it seemed. Top pick Tim Couch's fragility helped shorten his career in Cleveland. Akili Smith never got the hang of things in Cincinnati. Daunte Culpepper's little hands misfit his giant frame and sped his demise, and Cade McNown had the name, but not the game. The Eagles, of course, held fast and selected Donovan McNabb with the No. 2 pick, just ahead of Smith, and McNabb changed the course of the franchise.

IMAGINE working in politics as the guy behind the guy, the body man who drives the car and holds the important papers and steps back when the boss takes a turn in the media spotlight. Now imagine that spotlight shining hot on your face alone after some embarrassing personal matter becomes very public. Charlie Breslin , driver for Ed Rendell during his 2002 campaign for governor, knew that feeling in February, when he saw a front-page New York Times story about his friend David Johnson , a top aide to New York Gov. David Paterson . Johnson fell from grace after it was revealed that Paterson and a member of his security detail had contacted Johnson's girlfriend after she accused him of domestic abuse.

How do you persuade a high school student to sign up for the Army when the news from Iraq is dominated by insurgent attacks and steadily climbing casualties? If you are Sgt. First Class David F. Johnson, you start with a firm handshake and a steady smile. In the West Deptford High School cafeteria last week, Johnson surveyed the tables teeming with teenagers and noted that few seniors were in the crowd. But he said, "Juniors do become seniors, and sophomores do become juniors.
