I viewed the recent television movie Mercy or Murder? about the murder conviction of Roswell Gilbert. He shot his wife, who had Alzheimer's disease and osteoporosis. He claimed it was mercy killing. At the end of the movie, Gilbert (as portrayed by an actor) advocated that the laws be changed to permit euthanasia. Such a proposal to legalize euthanasia is very scary. When abortion was legalized, did anyone realize we would have thousands of clinics and almost two million unborn babies killed annually?

Will allowing a developer to build more houses than zoning permits have a "domino effect" on surrounding land? The Uwchlan Planning Committee, a group set up to study large developments in the township, at a meeting Wednesday considered permitting Rouse/Chamberlin Inc. to build about 200 "coach homes," instead of single-family homes, on the 38-acre Windham property. The site is between the new Lionville Shopping Center and Rouse/Chamberlin's The Seasons development, now being built.

The Coatesville Area school board voted, 6-3, last night to appoint the assistant superintendent as the top administrator until a permanent replacement is found. Assistant Superintendent Paul Bentley, who has held that job since 1988, has worked in the district for 33 years. In December, the board approved a five-year, $132,903 contract for him as assistant superintendent. The acting superintendent vacancy was created when the board fired Samuel DeSimone, who board members said had breached his $120,000, one-year contract by going on inactive status during a dispute with a state retirement agency.

PHOENIX - Gov. Jan Brewer on Friday decided against moving up the state's presidential primary by nearly a month from its current Feb. 28 date, avoiding what could have been a high-profile spat in the Republican Party over the schedule of the 2012 White House election. The Republican governor said, however, that she still wanted to leave open the option of moving the primary to a date later than Jan. 31 but earlier than Feb. 28. She also said the state had been tentatively allotted a Republican presidential candidates' debate by the Republican National Committee.

A Philadelphia couple that operates a beauty shop in Wynnewood has lost an attempt to obtain a zoning variance to relocate the shop to a single-family home at the busy intersection of Lancaster Avenue and Radnor-Chester Road in Radnor Township. Warning against a potential "domino effect" along East Lancaster Avenue, the Radnor Township Zoning Hearing Board Thursday night rejected 5-0 an application by Habibolah and Zahra Partow for a variance allowing them to operate a business at 604 E. Lancaster Ave., which is in a residential zone.

A Zoning Board of Adjustment hearing Tuesday drew almost 40 Bustleton residents opposed to plans for a beauty supply store and warehouse at the northwest corner of Krewstown Road and Gregg Street. Ted Levy, who wants to build the 20,000-square-foot facility in the 9300 block of Krewstown Road, told the zoning board that the area was "predominantly commercial. " The property, which Levy owns, is zoned residential, and he needs a zoning variance to proceed with construction of the retail facility.

On a night when manager Charlie Manuel planned to send Brad Lidge in for the save, the importance of getting the Phillies' star closer back on track might have increased dramatically. Righthander Chan Ho Park suffered a hamstring injury on his final pitch of the seventh inning, and the immediate prognosis is, at best, a concern. Park, who is 2-2 with a 2.57 ERA since joining the bullpen in mid-May, said he felt his right hamstring "pop" on the play. Manuel indicated that the veteran righthander could be sidelined for a significant stretch of time.

A decision is expected Monday from Penn State tailback Silas Redd that will impact the perception of the 2012 Nittany Lions tremendously. If Redd, who is considering transferring to Southern California, leaves, Penn State is left to pick up the pieces of an offense suddenly without a standout skill position player. If he stays, Penn State returns one of the nation's top running backs who can be a workhorse in Bill O'Brien's pro-style offense. Redd rushed for 1,241 yards and seven touchdowns last season as a sophomore starter.

I'M FED UP. Harrisburg is still porking away, the New Black Panther Party is about to erupt, the president is sitting on his thumbs, the Weathermen are resurfacing, soldiers still dying, health-care providers striking back, no Social Security increases for two years (at least), electric-gas-water-taxes-transportation all beckoning for more money, and now the federal government wants to stop tax deductions on our mortgage interest. No one seems to care what the domino effect is on us seniors on fixed incomes.

WE DON'T know his name, but he is the opposite of Steve Bartman. You remember Bartman, the idiot Cubs fan who prevented Chicago outfielder Moises Alou from catching a foul ball, thereby starting a domino effect that led to the Cubs losing the 2003 NLCS? Well, Saturday in Phoenix there was - as Yogi Berra might say - a similar situation, only different. A Padres fan reached out with his glove and snatched a foul ball away from Diamondbacks rightfielder Justin Upton with one out in the ninth inning.

THERE was a reason Victorian gentlefolk kept the crazy uncle penned up in the attic. He frightened the animals and creeped out the neighbors so much that they tended to stay away. That's the best explanation for why newspapers try not to prominently display their inevitable stupidities and lapses of taste on Page 1, the best real estate they own and the most visible. The Daily News has been forgetting this rule. To put it bluntly, Gov. Corbett is not a Nazi and nobody cares about subtle alterations in the sex life of the guy who runs at the head of a pack of "civic watchdogs.

Willingboro's Chris Henry couldn't help but think that things would be different this season. The faces would be the same, with the Chimeras returning one of the most experienced basketball teams in the area. But as he walked off the court after a 61-52 loss to Camden last March in the South Jersey Group 2 final, Henry knew his team would not make the same mistakes twice. "None of us really had experience in a big game like that as a team before," he said. "Now, we've been with each other for a while and we know what we have to do to win. " Henry, Jarvis Perry, Chris Burke, and Keonte Chavies are seniors and returning starters from a Willingboro team that went 21-9 overall, and 11-1 while capturing the Patriot Division title.

Sure, Barry Manilow made it through the rain, writes the songs, and can't smile without you. Know what else? Despite just having arthroscopic surgery on both hips, the 60-year-old singer-arranger is in the midst of one of his best years ever. That's saying something, what with Manilow ranked as the top adult-contemporary chart artist of all time, with 25 top 40 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 between 1975 and 1983. On Saturday night, he will play the sold-out Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City.

(This is the final installment of Elmer Smith's six-part series on how neighborhood residents deal with change.) IT'S ALL THERE in a profusion of pastels. The Logan Town Center is a color-coded wish list of what could be. The big pink box is a 15-acre regional shopping center to be built between 9th and 11th streets from Wingohocking to Wyoming. Next to it is a two-acre medical center in canary- yellow that is just below two peach-colored rectangles that would house senior-citizen and nursing-home complexes.

In South Jersey recently, Cheryl Branco, vice president of the Washington Township Board of Education, announced her intention to sue the school district and a coach because her son, a sophomore, was cut from the high school basketball team. According to the claim, the coach cut the son as part of a vendetta because the Brancos had previously complained about the coach's treatment of an older son two years before. In her legal papers, Branco states that her 15-year-old son has suffered emotional distress and that his chances for a college scholarship have been greatly harmed.
