Only months after Gov. Ridge seemed to single-handedly chase German shipbuilder Meyer Werft from the Philadelphia Navy Yard, it looks like the governor is playing favorites with his old hometown. After being repeatedly blasted for what was called the loss of up to 4,000 jobs and a $500 million shot to Philly's economy, Ridge is proposing new state funds for shipbuilding - in Erie. Tucked away in the state budget that Ridge unveiled yesterday is a $500,000 item for improvements "to enhance the Port of Erie's shipbuilding ability.

Glen Mills fullback Maurice Williams opened his team's game against Monsignor Bonner Sept. 13 in an unfamiliar position - on the bench. Running backs are interchangeable parts on Ken Banks' team, and the Bulls coach decided to replace Williams with Mike George against Bonner. "Maurice was missing blocking assignments," Banks said. "He wasn't hitting the holes. He was running tentatively in our first two games. " Williams, a starter in the Bulls' first two contests, was a starter again against Erie Cathedral Prep Friday night.

For years, Theodore and Cheryl Branch struggled fruitlessly for prominence. This week, the couple from Erie had their fleeting moment in the public eye - but even that was laced with scorn. The attention came Tuesday, when a Soviet official summoned reporters to a news conference in Moscow to announce that a pair of American "mass- communication experts" had been granted "political asylum" in the Soviet Union. The Branches - both in their 40s - were not rocket scientists or nuclear physicists; he was a radio disc jockey and she his helper.

In its last two games Archbishop Wood, with a steadily improving bunch, has frolicked to victory in mercy-rule fashion. But it's a safe bet that the last hurdle in the team's bid to repeat as state champion won't be anywhere near as easy to clear. Erie Cathedral Prep has a pair of players who have committed to Michigan State; averages 48.4 points per game with a spread attack; and has a 4-3 defense that allows only 9.9 points per outing. The Vikings will battle the undefeated Ramblers, of District 10, for the PIAA Class AAA crown at 7 p.m. Friday at Hersheypark Stadium.

One of Gov. Ridge's nominees to the state Supreme Court was technically part-owner of a failed company that left behind one of the state's worst hazardous-waste sites, a site whose cleanup will cost more than $11 million. William C. Sennett, an Erie lawyer and former state attorney general, said in an interview yesterday that he only provided a start-up legal service for Presque Isle Chemical Co. and had no role in its management. Sennett is to testify today before a Senate committee, as is D. Donald Jamieson, a Philadelphia lawyer.

CLEVELAND - They offer anecdotal evidence. They talk trends, voter anger, abhorrence of Hillary. They speak of the promise (really the hope) of winning Pennsylvania for the first time since 1988. And state Republicans leaving Cleveland after a convention of fear and loathing swear they have a case. So when VP candidate Mike Pence addressed them Thursday morning, they roared as he shouted, "Make Pennsylvania red again!" They think they can. They see signs small and large. Erie delegate, former congressman, Phil English tells me about the Zukor Club, membership $10, a west-side Erie blue-collar bar with cheap booze in a Democratic town.

One night not long ago, along the stretch of old rowhouses and empty storefronts that is West Philadelphia's 52d Street, a group of kids gathered before a large window to watch what was going on at Eris Temple Artspace . Under the noses of local fringe theater, art, and music aficionados, the gallery and performance space has been there for a decade. It's the last of the area's grungy DIY art spots, operating without the grants available to scrubbed-clean arts stages. And each of its denizens believes the best is yet to come.

A FEW MONTHS ago, SEPTA officials were glumly pondering a doomsday budget plan that would've sliced 'n' diced the agency until it was a barely recognizable jack-o-lantern version of itself. But at a board meeting yesterday afternoon, those same officials were positively giddy as they outlined an ambitious five- to 10-year capital-improvement program that will see many sorely needed repairs and upgrades finally come to fruition. The agency also approved a final $1.28 billion budget for fiscal year 2014, which no longer has a projected $38 million shortfall, thanks to internal cost cuts.

Andy Smith wouldn't call himself a runner. He runs. He runs to stay healthy, to keep off weight, to remove his shirt at the beach without fear. Three times a week, he gets to Washington Crossing State Park by 6 a.m. Winter, too. He doesn't find exercise particularly interesting. So he usually runs with a friend. Lately, he's been adding a little spice to his regimen. Twice he's tested himself in Tough Mudder events, which combine distance running with military-grade obstacle courses.

ERIE, Pa. - A guidance counselor and track coach at a Western Pennsylvania Catholic school has been suspended without pay for two weeks after he sent the student body an insulting e-mail criticizing the lack of fan support at a recent basketball game. Chet Moffett apologized for the e-mail he sent to students at Erie's Cathedral Prep high school after its Dec. 13 loss at General McLane. Moffett's e-mail was sent to all students at the all-male school, but mainly targeted 36 students whom the coach saw not sitting in a student cheering section.

From a little college in the far northwest corner of the state come new measurements of something large: the impact of hard times on ordinary Pennsylvanians. In just their second year of polling, researchers at Mercyhurst College, a Catholic liberal arts school in Erie, came up with questions meant to gauge the recession's kitchen-table impact. The findings of the college's first statewide poll, to be published this week but made available Monday to The Inquirer, offer fresh evidence that the nation's economic crisis is hitting not just close to home but inside.
