His eyes closed, his voice calm, Robert V. Tilghman leaned back in his chair to explain why, after a life as an engineering technician, he was making his first try at elective office - for state representative, no less. "I have nothing to lose, and I'm not looking for a career in political science. I'm not that young," Tilghman said slowly. But "the veteran's status has been that of a third-class citizen. I believe that veterans should be first-class citizens. " Tilghman, 63, is waging a low-key battle against five-term incumbent Rep. Kathrynann Durham (R., Concord)

Charles A. Durham Jr., 63, a retired FBI agent who started a Dixieland jazz band and led it to rousing reviews in South Jersey, died yesterday at his home of 28 years in Moorestown. Mr. Durham worked as a special agent with the FBI for 25 years, assigned first to the agency's Pittsburgh office and for most of his career to Philadelphia. It was after his retirement in 1976 that Mr. Durham rekindled the love for music he had harbored since childhood. Indeed, it was then that he formed the Jersey Devils.

The Republican ticket for this year's Delaware County elections began to take shape this week as candidates came forward to seek party nominations for three County Council seats and the office of the district attorney. Chief among the announcements was that of State Rep. Kathrynann W. Durham, who is seeking the nomination for the council seat to be vacated by Chairman Ward T. Williams in 1996. Williams, who has served six years, said last week that he would not run again. In addition, Pat Meehan, who ran Rick Santorum's successful U.S. Senate bid in November and is senior counsel for U.S. Sen. Arlen Specter, announced that he would seek to replace District Attorney William H. Ryan Jr., who cannot seek a third term.

The first shot of the Delaware County campaign season was fired yesterday when a Democratic candidate for County Council leveled veiled criticism at his GOP opponent during a public meeting, provoking a partisan exchange.

Republican State Rep. Kathrynann Durham also wants a seat as a Delaware County councilwoman, and the prospect of her holding two public positions has Democrats asking how she can be in two places at the same time. Alan Polsky, a Democrat from Haverford running for a seat on the County Council, raised the question Wednesday while speaking to an audience of about 50 senior citizens at Dunwoody Village. "Why did the Republican Party appoint somebody that they know can't attend meetings for the first year?"

He used an FBI-issued cell phone to make the call that he knew would warn a drug kingpin that a law enforcement raid was about to go down. And when he was confronted by investigators three years later, he lied about it. Those were two of several new allegations contained in a six-count federal indictment unsealed yesterday charging Philadelphia Police Detective Rickie Durham with obstruction of justice. Durham, 43, has denied the charges. A 12-year veteran, Durham has been suspended with intent to dismiss, according to Police Commissioner Charles H.

Since the first batch of 2010 U.S. Census data emerged last month, Langhorne Mayor Chris Blaydon has scoured block maps, ordered decade-old trash bills, and phoned two federal officials. The numbers say the historic Bucks County borough lost 359 residents, or 18 percent of its population. Hogwash, says Blaydon. "There is no way in hell that our population dropped," he said in an interview last week. "We are so steady in every way.
