The New York Times reported on Dec. 8 that when a CIA contra-supply plane crashed in Costa Rica, "the CIA agent in charge of the operation ordered that jaws be removed from the bodies to prevent dental identification. " Is this now standard operating procedure for our administration? While President Reagan pretends that he cares so much for Americans held hostage and for the contra cause that he covertly contradicted his own overt policies and the will of Congress, he allows other Americans to fly without parachutes (Eugene Hasenfus survived only because he bought his own)

A standoff between township police and a Garfield East resident that lasted more than six hours ended early yesterday without injury after a special unit stormed the man's home. Police received a report about 9:15 p.m. Wednesday that the man, Willie Grace, 57, of Executive Lane, had a loaded revolver and intended to "harm himself. " An unidentified female friend of Grace's reported the matter. After several unsuccessful attempts to contact Grace by phone, members of the Burlington County Special Response team were called to the scene.

PepsiCo was ready. Soon after President Clinton lifted the trade embargo against Vietnam, a giant Pepsi can advertisement was erected in Hanoi. It makes you wonder whether the United States really lost that war, after all. Nineteen years later, with communism all but moribund, it is hard to remember the "domino theory" and the fear of worldwide communist domination that made the quagmire that was Vietnam possible. It's about time to end the war, and go forward. President Clinton says that concerns about trade played no part in his decision - only the belief that lifting the embargo would be the best way to gain a full accounting of the 2,000-plus American servicemen still missing from that war. Maybe, but it's also clear that - 19 years later - the United States finally has come to grips with the fact that, in war, there are loose ends, and eternally unresolved issues.

After five straight quarters of losses, Kulicke & Soffa Industries Inc. posted a profit of $7.4 million in its fiscal fourth quarter, which ended Sept. 30. "The turnaround in the semiconductor business cycle was clearly apparent in the strength of our fourth-quarter results," said C. Scott Kulicke, chairman and chief executive officer of the Willow Grove company, which makes assembly equipment for the semiconductor industry. Economic recovery in Asia played a large part in the turnaround, a company spokeswoman, Nancy Kyle, said.

Shortly after earning the greatest accomplishment of his high school career, Deptford basketball standout Rickie Crews found himself a battered champion. Crews barely had time to savor Deptford's first sectional championship after last night's 60-50 win over Camden in the NJSIAA South Jersey Group 3 final at Eastern. As the teams were shaking hands after the game, Crews was leveled by a punch in the nose from Camden senior forward MacArthur Mason. "[Mason] said a lot of stuff, and he said during the game that he would do it," said Crews, a 6-foot-6 senior who played the game of his life with 24 points, 18 rebounds and 10 blocked shots.

Paul Aguirre and the rest of the Chestnut Hill Academy Hillers ended the Academy of the New Church's Independence League season on a memorable note Friday. Aguirre set a new school rushing record for a single season when he churned up 237 yards on 25 carries to total 1,289 yards for the year as the host Hillers topped the Lions, 35-13. The junior running back, who scored 3 touchdowns on runs of 5, 25 and 14 yards, shattered the single-season rushing mark of 1,248 yards set by Larry Haas in 1970.

One second was all that separated the Morrisville Bulldogs from a road victory over Bicentennial rival Devon Prep Saturday night. But Morrisville's 62-59 lead disappeared and then so did the apparent victory when Devon Prep's Joe Maertzig's three-pointer tied the game and the Tide pulled away in overtime to triumph, 76-66. Devon Prep held a 7-point lead heading into the fourth quarter, but Morrisville put things together and outscored the Tide, 21-9, to take a 3- point lead and set up the dramatic ending.

Unionville already had wrapped up the Southern Chester County League championship. All that really mattered Friday against Kennett was whether the Indians would finish the league season undefeated. Kennett made the Indians work for it, racing to a 12-point lead at halftime. But Unionville's defense proved to be too much in the second half in a 36-30 victory. Unionville's stifling defensive effort held Kennett to just 10 points in the final two periods, erasing that 20-8 deficit.

Downingtown East senior tight end Cary Angeline, a four-star prospect who was recruited by topflight programs across the country, committed Friday afternoon to play at southern Cal. He took an unofficial visit to the school in April. "I liked pretty much everything about it," the 17-year-old said. "I felt at home on campus, was real comfortable with the coaches and the players. And Los Angeles is a great city. " The 6-foot-7, 230-pounder, the eighth-ranked tight end in the Class of 2016 according to 247Sports.com, chose the Trojans over Alabama, Miami, Michigan, Ohio State, Notre Dame, and Penn State, among others.

Left winger Lawson Crouse and right winger Travis Konecny, best friends since their early years, could be drafted in the opening round of Friday's NHL draft - and there's even an outside chance both will be selected by the Flyers. Getting drafted in the first round "has been a dream of ours," Konecny said at the scouting combine in Buffalo earlier this month. "I hope we're able to experience that together. . . . As much as we're best friends and help each other, we're also competitive and we push each other.

After 13 years, Philadelphia's Pattern Is Movement may be on its way to a breakup - Saturday's show at Johnny Brenda's is the electronic indie-soul duo's last gig - but at this particular moment, drummer Chris Ward and his pal of 22-plus years, Andrew Thiboldeaux (heavenly crooner, creamy keyboardist, songwriter) are driving to Chicago together, Thiboldeaux driving, Ward on phone duty. With the announced dissolution of the band in April (weirdly - the duo is truly at the top of its frenetic, funky game with 2014's eponymous album)

The nameplate above Cole Hamels' locker stall at Citizens Bank Park was gone Thursday, as were the contents that typically hang inside it. Four hours earlier the Phillies ace had been scratched from his Friday start, and someone - perhaps even Hamels himself - was clever enough to jokingly spark brief speculation that the pitcher had been traded. After they ended a woeful nine-game losing streak, a 2-1 win over the Baltimore Orioles lightened the mood in the Phillies clubhouse. For the first time in quite a while, music blared and players shared laughs as the clubhouse opened to the media.

CHIP KELLY'S Church of Sports Scientology came into Brent Celek's life just in the nick of time. The tight end was 28 going on 60 when Kelly replaced Andy Reid as the Eagles' head coach two years ago. Six seasons of playing pro football the only way he knows how - pedal to the metal, with no regard for his physical well-being - had taken its toll on his body. "I probably wouldn't be here if not for the type of stuff we do now," he said. "I was starting to break down a little bit and I needed to take care of my body a little bit better.

FREDERICK SMITH was miffed. You'd be, too, if you parked your car at the curb, walked immediately to the parking kiosk to pay and returned seconds later to find a meter maid writing a ticket. Smith used some unpleasant language on that hazy May 19 afternoon at 12th and Chestnut in Center City. The Philadelphia Parking Authority ticket-writer, no doubt used to foul-mouthed freak-outs, calmly explained that the ticket was for expired inspection stickers, rather than any parking offense.

The small plane banked steeply to give us a better view of the remains of a circular hilltop city rising from the wide plain barely a mile below. "Megiddo," the pilot said, pointing. "This is the Valley of Armageddon. " Israel lies at the meeting point of three continents, but it is also a temporal nexus of past and present, where the ages of settlement can be seen and even touched in the layers of its ancient towns. As a teacher of history, I came to Israel seeking its past but found the current events taking place amid its archaeological sites competed for my interest, and in a few places like Megiddo, steeped in Biblical portent, it was the future that cast the longest shadow.

When New Jersey's high court ruled last week that Gov. Christie had the authority to cut billions from payments he had promised the state pension system, it spared the governor a massive budget shortfall as he prepares to announce a presidential decision. Though the legal victory over public-worker unions averted immediate crisis, it did not relieve Christie - or state lawmakers - of a reality less worthy of campaign-trail celebration: an unfunded pension liability that continues to strain the state budget and funds for many workers at risk of running out of money within the next decade.

After Scott Kingery was drafted by the Phillies in the second round of the major-league draft on Monday night, he received a handful of congratulatory texts and calls. But a call from a Williamsport number had another layer to it. The man who guided Kingery's Ahwatukee (Ariz.) team through the Little League World Series in 2006 is now a host parent for the Williamsport Crosscutters, the Phillies' short-season single-A team. If Kingery lands with the Crosscutters to start his professional career, he was told he'll have somewhere to stay.
