Her name - for now - is Bunny Doe. The day before Easter, she was found abandoned under the stairwell of an Eagleville apartment building, naked except for a powder-blue knit cap. She was just 2 hours old and weighed 7 pounds, 13 ounces. Her umbilical cord had been tied off with a white shoelace. Other than that, little is known about the infant. Yesterday, after a week and a half of investigation, Montgomery County officials said they knew even less about Bunny's parents.

The decision to bring in the Quiet Riot Comedy Theater to perform at Eagleville Elementary School next month has generated loud protest from a few parents. The show, run by brothers David and Bill Mettler of Wyncote, uses mine, comedy, music and a seven-part message to urge students to avoid alcohol and illegal drugs. Bette Anne Camagna, who has three children in the school, said in an interview that she saw the comedy routine at Village Park Elementary School in the Pennsbury School District in Bucks County and did not like the approach, which emphasizes the empowerment of children.

A 5-year-old Montgomery County girl whose legs were mangled by a lawn mower nearly two years ago has won a $12 million judgment against Sears, Roebuck & Co. and the maker of the riding tractor mower. Allie Martin was 3 1/2 years old when her father, David Martin, accidentally backed over her while mowing the lawn at his Eagleville home on May 24, 1993. Allie's left leg was chewed up by the rotating blades and had to be amputated below the knee. Her right foot was mutilated, and part of it was amputated.

Weekday bus service between Norristown and the Montgomery County prison in Eagleville, Lower Providence Township, will be cut by more than 50 percent because of low ridership, the county commissioners said yesterday. Saturday service to the county prison and to Graterford Prison in Skippack Township also will be affected, said the commissioners. The changes are effective Oct. 25. The cuts are necessary, the commissioners said, because as many as 17 of 52 weekday and Saturday bus runs have averaged three passengers or fewer.

The Magnolia Borough Council awarded a contract last night to Eagleville Excavating Inc. of Philadelphia to take the borough's trash through 1988. Under the contract, Magnolia will pay $55 a ton to dump its trash at Eagleville's transfer station. Borough officials said they expected to dump 3,700 tons during the time of the contract, for a total cost of $203,500. The borough had been dumping its trash at three landfills after it was stopped from using the Kinsley Landfill in Deptford in 1985 and was without a contract, borough officials said.

If all the rough edges are smoothed out, Bryn Athyn and Lower Moreland may soon share a police radio dispatch system. The Bryn Athyn Borough Council took the first steps at its Monday night meeting by voicing interest in buying an ultra-high-frequency system that would be compatible with Lower Moreland's new dispatch system. Calls would be answered by Lower Moreland's Police Department and then be dispatched to Bryn Athyn's Police Department. "With the system we have now, we are compatible with Lower Moreland.

A Darby garbage-hauling operation headed by William Stout, the son of former Philadelphia union boss Earl Stout, exists in violation of township regulations and without a state permit, a township official said yesterday. Darby Solicitor A. Leo Sereni said the township had been unaware until two weeks ago of the operation of the transfer and recycling station owned by Eagleville Inc., whose president is William Stout. Several officials toured the company's site in southern Darby Township two weeks ago at the insistence of Township Commissioner Lee Taliafero, who said he had been concerned about the legality of the transfer station, which never received approval from the township.

It was not exactly the signing of the Declaration of Independence, but for Mayor Jack Hagen of Laurel Springs and several other Camden County mayors it definitely was an exercise in free choice. Better yet, Hagen said, it will save a lot of taxpayers a lot of money. In a brief, low-key ceremony last Wednesday, Hagen and the other mayors signed contracts with a trash-disposal company, Eagleville Excavating Co., that has agreed to dispose of the towns' trash for the next two years at a cost well below that charged by The Forge Inc., a Philadelphia trash-transfer station.

Going for Gobi The long history of Chinese cooking in America has evolved toward the sweet and syrupy. By contrast, in India, where the fusion is known as "Indo-Chinese," the flavors that emerged over the last century from the Chinese community in eastern India have veered toward high-voltage spice and sour. Take my new favorite vegetarian dish, which is becoming more common in Philadelphia-area Indian restaurants: Gobi Manchurian. The cauliflower florets are crisped in a seasoned corn batter, then sauced in a mahogany slick that could be mistaken for General Tso's - until you take a bite.

The pictures look like Montgomery County's take on Reno 911: emergency operators clutching booze and sex toys while mugging for cameras at their computer terminals in the Eagleville dispatch center. Pictures of the racy Dec. 23 work party, reminiscent of the television police spoof, yesterday found their way from a MySpace posting into the hands of the Montgomery County commissioners, who fired a supervisor and denounced the judgment of all involved. "This behavior was unbelievably stupid," Commissioners Chairman James R. Matthews said, "and doing it in front of a camera multiplies the stupidity.

At the request of prison officials, the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office is investigating whether a contract extension was properly awarded in December and whether any prison employees benefited from it. Julio Algarin, acting warden at the Montgomery County Correctional Facility in Eagleville, said he asked District Attorney Bruce L. Castor Jr. in April to open an investigation. Algarin said he wanted an independent third party to look into concerns raised by county commissioners about the county Prison Board's contract extension for Correctional Medical Care of Skippack.

At a shout, a dozen tiny bare feet fly upward toward black belt Lou Giamo in a martial-arts studio in Eagleville. "Right foot first. No, that's your left foot," Giamo tells 3- to 5-year-olds there to learn tae kwon do. "We have some left-and-right issues here," he privately concedes. But this summer, Giamo, 45, a master and instructor of tae kwon do - the art of fighting with foot and fist - swaps the local stage for the international. With three other trainers, he will fly to Mali to help that West African nation field a tae kwon do team sharp enough to qualify for the 2008 Olympics.

Students Against Violating the Earth, an organization run by Souderton Area High School 10th, 11th and 12th graders, will hold an open house Saturday, featuring an electric car and a house redesigned for environmental conservation. The car, a 1991 Volkswagon Jetta, has been modified so that it no longer requires fossil fuels to operate. The house gleans heat from the use of passive-solar technology - such as heat-storing tiles and masonry and south-facing windows - and uses recycled materials.

The Montgomery County commissioners dedicated last night a new 250-bed wing at the county prison, the long-promised answer to overcrowding at the Eagleville facility. The addition will increase the prison's capacity to about 1,400, with room for still more growth. "The expansion of a prison is not a happy event," said Commissioner James W. Maza after touring the facility. He said county money was needed for education and children's programs but "public safety is the first order of government.

Around the turn of the 20th century, tuberculosis was among the leading causes of death in Western nations. For those who had the financial means, there was treatment that held out hope of recovery. For the poor, TB usually proved fatal. A group of professionals from the Philadelphia Jewish community set out to meet the needs of indigent TB victims. In 1909, they founded the Philadelphia Jewish Sanatorium for Consumptives, a nonsectarian hospital in the Montgomery County countryside.
