Lockheed Martin Corp. hopes to decide within 90 days where in Eastern Pennsylvania it will locate a new technology center that will employ up to 1,200 of the scientists and engineers from the company's Astro Space plants. The new center would be situated somewhere between the Astro Space sites in Valley Forge and East Windsor, N.J., making Bucks and Montgomery Counties prime candidates. The Astro plant sites are being phased out over three years. Officials in both counties said yesterday they would welcome the new facility, which Lockheed Martin is calling a "Center of Excellence.

Lockheed Martin Corp. said yesterday it would close its Astro Space facilities in Valley Forge and East Windsor, N.J., as part of a corporate consolidation plan that would eliminate 12,000 jobs over the next five years. Closing Astro Space will mean the loss of 3,200 jobs in East Windsor and 1,800 in Valley Forge, but the company's long-awaited reorganization plan will have somewhat less effect on the Philadelphia area than once feared. In this area, cuts will take place over a three-year period.

Every workday for the last nine years, township resident Rich Wozniak left his family and drove as far as 40 miles to his job at a Lockheed Martin Corp. center. Starting this week, the company is bringing the center to him. "When we heard it was coming here, it was just a blessing," said Wozniak, a deputy director at Lockheed Martin's Communications and Power Center, now completing its first official week of operation at its new plant south of the Newtown Bypass. The shorter commute will be a common experience for the 1,400 employees who eventually will work at the $60 million plant, company officials said.

Working against the clock, the Montgomery County Commissioners have asked a team of Coopers & Lybrand analysts to go into overdrive to complete a study that government officials hope will convince Lockheed Martin to stay in King of Prussia and save up to 5,000 jobs. With word that a Lockheed Martin board meeting would take place next Friday, Commissioner Richard S. Buckman said yesterday that it was imperative to speed up the study, which the county commissioned last week as an 11th-hour measure to lobby the firm.

Tim Tanner Jr.'s plight this season on the Garden State's dirt tracks hasn't been much different from that of his contemporaries. He has spent plenty of sweltering Fridays and Saturdays in the pit area of East Windsor and New Egypt speedways, standing behind Kenny Brightbill's No. 19 car and wondering how in the world to defeat New Jersey's short-track Superman. After all, when a guy such as Brightbill, a full-time pro, comes in and takes 16 victories in his first 32 New Jersey starts, there aren't too many crumbs left for anyone else.

Eric Ledford, 35, of Monroe Township, was arrested at the Meadowlands and charged with conspiracy to fix a race.

In just two nights, Jimmy Horton showed the racing world why he has earned the label "short-track superstar. " Horton, 42, picked up a pair of modified wins on the clay ovals of the Garden State, striking gold at East Windsor on Friday and Bridgeport on Saturday. And the victories couldn't have come at a better time. Not only did they allow him to move closer to the top of the points standings at both tracks, they also gave him plenty of momentum heading into a week that offers a $10,000-to-win show at Bridgeport and a $6,000-to-win event at Grandview Speedway, in Bechtelsville, Pa. On Friday at Windsor, Horton, competing in the first of two 20-lap features, glided his No. 43 car from 18th to first in just 13 laps.

Robert Pycior, 21, wore an orange tutu, orange leotard, orange wig. He was feeling very pro-orange. He lost his father in the 9/11 attack on the Pentagon, but he had team spirit. Everyone on the orange team Sunday - and the blue and the red and teal, for that matter, all 72 campers - had lost a loved one to terrorism. They had been sharing their most intimate stories all week - Samuel Wanjiku, how his mother was blown up by a grenade in Mombasa, Kenya; Isaac Othman, how his cousin was shot in his Palestinian homeland.

As it turns out, it's a good thing Sherrill Mosee didn't become the first African American astronaut, an aspiration she had as a young girl. "I don't think I would have made it in space," said the former engineer for General Electric Co. and Lockheed Martin Corp. "I had to pull out the nausea bag my first airplane ride. " Not that her career path hasn't been full of adventure. Her latest endeavor, for example, is making fashionable diaper and travel bags. After three years of researching the industry, experimenting with designs, and availing herself of free small-business consulting services, Mosee has formed MinkeeBlue L.L.C.

Kyle Powell needed to prove himself on New Year's Eve 2011, when he grabbed a pair of weighted gloves and drove to an apartment complex with plans to beat up someone who wasn't white. Three days later, after two Egyptian men were assaulted, Powell, 24, of West Collingswood, received an "Aryan Terrorist Brigade" tattoo on his left arm to symbolize his induction into the white supremacist group. On Wednesday, in a federal courtroom in Trenton, Powell was sentenced to 15 months in prison for his part in the attack, a hate-crime conspiracy that involved two others.

Two months after the murder of exotic dancer Rachel Siani, the strip club where she worked and the Econo Lodge where police suspect she was abducted and beaten are facing extinction. As part of a $2.5 million deal announced Wednesday by Bristol Township, the motel and the adjoining Divas International Gentlemen's Club will be replaced by a Ramada Inn and a "first-class, family-oriented" restaurant, something along the lines of T.G.I. Friday's or Charlie Brown's, township officials said.

For a driver who insists he doesn't race for points, Kenny Brightbill sure has a funny way of piling up track championships. Brightbill, a 51-year-old, full-time professional race car driver from Sinking Spring, Pa., has won nearly a dozen titles and more than 500 features in a career that has taken him from the fabled Reading (Pa.) Fairgrounds, where he won four modified titles and more than 100 races before the track closed in 1979, to Southern dirt-track, late-model, small, round bull rings, and even a few NASCAR Winston Cup starts.
