Pennsylvania's predilection for hoagies and cheesesteaks speaks to innate frugality. It took a New Yorker to figure out how to spend serious money on a sandwich. Unfortunately, former Pennsylvania Health Secretary Eli Avila, a New York transplant that didn't take, effectively spent our money - $75,000 worth, The Inquirer reported Wednesday - in his quest for a sandwich that matched his supposed station. That was the cost of settling his dispute with a Harrisburg eatery long after the ex-secretary returned north.

HARRISBURG - It could be one of the priciest egg sandwiches ever made - yet never eaten. And Pennsylvania taxpayers are footing the bill. A long-running court battle between a Harrisburg restaurant owner and a former member of Gov. Corbett's cabinet over the preparation of an egg sandwich has ended with a $75,000 settlement, court records show. The state's payout to Richard Hanna, finalized late last month, came more than two years after he accused the commonwealth and then-Health Secretary Eli Avila of retaliating against him for the way Hanna had cooked the new cabinet member's egg one morning in 2011.

Egg Harbor Township pitcher Jordan Wisser entered the baseball game in a big spot. With his team up by three runs in the bottom of the seventh inning, Wisser inherited a two-out, bases-loaded situation against host Cherokee on Saturday. After allowing a two-run single and a walk, Wisser forced a groundout to get the save and give Egg Harbor a 3-2 nonleague win. Teammate Todd Henry knocked in two runs on a two-out triple in the fifth inning, and that proved to be the difference.

Egg flats, a huge mass of cotton candy, and a cellphone: These make up the set and props, and provide the music, for the latest world premiere by the Miller Rothlein (MIRO) dance troupe. "From the Spot Where We/You/I Stand (Stood.)" opened Thursday night in the White Space at Crane Arts Old School, presenting one of the most fascinating hours you're likely to spend in a theater this year. It begins with the performers - four superb, professional adult dancers, plus a quartet of extremely talented fourth-graders from the Miller Rothlein outreach program at Girard College - standing like living statues atop pedestals of varying heights made from stacks of egg flats, those gray cardboard squares with ovoid indentations.

Q: I READ your column regularly but I've never seen a problem like mine addressed. Maybe it's because I have the opposite problem of a lot of women in my situation. I'm a successful black professional female with no kids. I don't have any problem getting asked out, but I'm in my 40s and if I'm going to have a baby, it's now or never. Each of the guys I'm talking to would make a really great dad. But they also each have pluses and minuses. One has school-age kids, and I can't deal with his baby-mama drama.

Eric Wiafe will have a better idea than most recruits of what it's like to face Division I competition as he begins his football career at Rutgers. That is because the 2013 Egg Harbor Township graduate spent the fall attending Milford Academy in New Berlin, N.Y. The prep school has been an assembly line for Division I recruits, and Bill Chaplick has coached such players as Eagles running back LeSean McCoy, Denver Broncos and former Temple defensive lineman Terrance Knighton, and former Winslow Township running back Shonn Greene, now a member of the Tennessee Titans.

White was held to just four points in the first half, but poured in 14 more in the second to join Graves in double figures.
