Political bickering continued down to the wire last night as township politicos fought over missing signs and sign ordinances on primary election eve. Township officials have removed various political signs during the past few weeks because of an ordinance that some campaigners think is unconstitutional.

If the signs are removed within five days after the election, the escrow money is returned.

As public improvement work begins on the Buttonwood Farms housing development in Warminster, the financial stakes for the township and residents of the development may be climbing. Last week, after months of pressure from residents, the Warminster Board of Supervisors voted 4-0 to seize the $124,000 escrow. That money was set aside by the Bank & Trust Co. of Old York Road to finance public improvements in the development. After a Thursday night meeting of residents, township officials and Mark Hankin, the bank president, the township backpedaled and decided not to immediately draw on the escrow and take over the work, which is now expected to cost more than the amount available in escrow.

A representative from the NHL and the players' union met Thursday but failed to make any progress during the 89th day of the lockout. Steve Fehr, special counsel for the NHL Players' Association, and NHL attorney Bob Batterman met with a federal mediator in Iselin, N.J.

In an interview with WCCO-TV in Minneapolis, Obama said: "My message to owners and to players is, 'You guys make a lot of money and you make a lot of money on the backs of fans, so do right by your fans.

Efforts by T.H. Properties L.P. (THP) to resume home building while it navigates U.S. Bankruptcy Court may depend on Michael C. and Evelyn Foisy. The couple, who put a $21,375 deposit down in December on a house in the Harleysville company's Westport Farm development in Hatfield, are trying to recover their money or buy the property - even though they were rejected for a home loan by a THP subsidiary, Hendricks Mortgage. Until either occurs, the Foisys and their attorney, David L. Marshall of Eastburn & Gray P.C., of Blue Bell, will press their objection to THP's motion to sell six more homes in its developments under cash-collateral stipulations set by two lenders, Susquehanna and Continental Banks.

IT WAS LATE. Petr Straka slept in. With the AHL on its All-Star break, it was one of the rare days of the season Straka didn't have to wake up early to get to the rink. Or, so he thought. When he rubbed his eyes and reached for his phone yesterday morning, Straka had more than a few messages and missed calls - which set off a mad dash from Allentown to the Wells Fargo Center last night for his NHL debut. "I got up quick and picked up the phone and started going," Straka said.

Instead of NHL training camps opening with the customary optimism Saturday, the league was dark. Instead of the Flyers trying to sort out numerous lineup decisions before the scheduled Oct. 11 opener, their players are scattered around different continents. Instead of a countdown to the upcoming season, the Flyers, like all NHL teams, are in a state of disarray. Welcome to the latest NHL lockout, a development that is slowly pushing the sport out of the fans' consciousness.
