Dan and Margie Gallagher will celebrate 35 years of marriage this Sunday. "Or is it one-thirty-five?" Dan said with a laugh. It must seem that long sometimes. Not because the years have been bad. Because they've been packed with activity. Including last-of-the-line Mike, a senior defensive back for St. John Neumann's football team, the Gallaghers have 11 children. The first 10 - half are married and have provided nine grandchildren - all graduated from Neumann or its sister school, St. Maria Goretti.

As a volunteer firefighter, Daniel Gallagher responded to many of his neighbors during times of crisis. Since Gallagher's own home was heavily damaged by fire Jan. 28, he and his family have been on the receiving end of abundant community goodwill. Almost immediately after the fire, the public responded with three fund drives. Donations of food, clothing and shelter have come in steadily during the last two weeks, said Cheryl Birtell, a relief effort organizer. Residents, Birtell said, recognized the urgency of the mission: The Gallaghers did not have fire insurance on the house on Mintleaf Road in the Mill Creek Falls section.

Shameless has always gotten the short end of the stick. In any other previous TV landscapes, it might get its due. But with so much to watch, it's too often neglected. Shameless - its sixth season premieres at 9 p.m. Sunday on Showtime - perpetrates two great sins that keep it out of the Golden Age of TV conversation. The first is it's not perfect. It can be uneven. Characters can be written into corners. Its star - William H. Macy - was miscast in the lead as the ultimate deadbeat, formerly inebriated dad Frank Gallagher, who also ends up being the least interesting of his entire clan.

"Gonna be a rock-and-roll star," Liam Gallagher announced confidently on the first song on Oasis' first album. And his arrogance proved justified, as he and his songwriter-guitarist brother Noel became the biggest band in Britain since the Beatles and found a mass American audience with 1995's enormously catchy (What's the Story) Morning Glory? Unchecked egoism has a way of catching up with you, however, and the karmic boomerang struck the Gallaghers on their uni-browed noggins with last year's overblown Be Here Now. Noel hadn't lost his talent for penning irresistibly melodic pub sing-alongs.

Plans for the Kennett area's brand-new, multimillion-dollar YMCA, with Olympic-size pool and elevated running track, have at least two local residents, well, kind of down. It is not that Tom and Karen Gallagher do not want local children to have a pool in which to practice their kicks and play Marco Polo. It's just that they prefer it to be their pool. Several years ago, the Gallaghers began donating the use of their backyard pool to the dozens of rambunctious, sunburned YMCA summer campers who had nowhere to take swimming lessons.

Late Sunday afternoon, a Delaware state trooper went to the home of a suburban New Castle County couple whose daughter had called to report that her parents were having an argument. The trooper knocked on the door but got no answer. It wasn't until the trooper walked around to the back of the home and peered through a kitchen window that he learned that the argument had been settled with a rifle. Kenneth E. Gallagher, 46, shot and killed his wife, Billie, 42, according to police, who say they believe that the husband then put the rifle to his own head.

Those limpid pools of dark brown - those are her mother's eyes. The black mane and dark-bay body - her mother's coloring. But what about the long legs? And that low whinny, as if she were the Katharine Hepburn of horses? Those would be Daddy's contribution, in all likelihood. Except that no one knows who Daddy is. And in the world of thoroughbred racing, where pregnancies are planned and pedigrees are paramount, that's a problem. In one of the oddest stories to come down the track in quite awhile, a Bucks County couple who a little more than a year ago bought a racing horse wound up with an extra surprise: a bouncing baby foal.

After decades of welcome isolation, the residents of this unspoiled island in Lake Michigan now find the world is beating on their door. Until now, they have expressed only a modest interest in the doings of the county government, headquartered in Charlevoix, the closest city on the mainland; less in Lansing and the state government; and virtually none in Washington. But the insulation which has made this such a perfect vacation spot is coming to an end. In October, the Columbus, a German cruise ship with almost 600 passengers and crew, will make a five-hour port call at St. James, the center of island commerce.

PASADENA, CALIF. - The creator and cast of "Arrested Development" were reunited this week with the people who'd (mostly) loved them before it was cool. Or at least before millions more people discovered the show on DVD and decided that TV critics had, after all, been right about the series, which ran for three little-watched seasons on Fox between 2003 and 2006. In May, "Arrested" will return to TV (sort of) on Netflix, which plans to launch all 14 new episodes at once to its streaming-plan subscribers.

Four years ago, a groom for trainer Don Reeder walked into a stall at Philadelphia Park and was shocked to see a newborn foal alongside a young black filly named Speak Compelling. Just nine days earlier, Speak Compelling had been defeated by an embarrassingly distant 31 lengths, leaving her connections to ponder what was causing the filly to race so poorly. Neither her owners, Bill and Lynda Gallagher of Newtown, Bucks County, nor Reeder was aware that Speak Compelling was pregnant, only that she harbored no interest in being a racehorse.

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds. These days, always-amusing Oasis songwriter Noel Gallagher is more reliable at giving good quotes than at writing great new songs. He recently criticized Jay Z and other owners of the Tidal music-streaming service for their superhero complex ("Do these people think they're the [expletive] Avengers?"). He's got a bunch of good old Beatle-y tunes in his back catalog, though. Wednesday at the Merriam Theater. Major Lazer and DJ Snake (featuring MØ)

Lenape girls' lacrosse coach Jill McCarthy says she can always count on senior stars Natalie Peel and Shannon Gallagher. They're dependable. They're reliable. They're the Alpha and Omega of the team's offense and defense. "They provide a sense of calm and leadership at both ends of the field," McCarthy said. Peel, who scored seven goals in a 17-7 victory over Rancocas Valley in the season opener for both teams Thursday, is the spark of the Indians' attack. Gallagher, a defender, anchors the team's back line.

Archbishop Wood girls' basketball coach John Gallagher announced his resignation on Monday afternoon amid allegations that he sent anonymous e-mails to college coaches in an effort to ruin the NCAA eligibility of rival players. Gallagher was called as a witness in a lawsuit in Philadelphia Common Pleas Court filed by former Neumann-Goretti coach Letty Santarelli. Santarelli, who resigned in October, is suing Stephen Skedzielewski, whom she replaced as coach in 2012. Santarelli is seeking more than $50,000 in damages for libel, slander, and misrepresentation of character.

His preliminary hearing is scheduled for Dec. 15. According to court documents, Gallagher, 58, was driving a maroon Ford on Saturday when he allegedly struck a car in the 300 block of Lincoln Avenue in Prospect Park and fled the scene.

Pepper Hamilton L.L.P. announced Thursday that Thomas M. Gallagher, head of the firm's white-collar litigation and investigations practice group, has become chair of the firm, succeeding former FBI Director Louis Freeh, who had reached the end of his two-year term. The firm had begun a search for Freeh's replacement earlier this year and Gallagher was named chair by the firm's 12-member executive committee in August. Freeh was seriously injured in an auto accident near his vacation home in Vermont on Aug. 25, well after the succession plan had been set in motion, and he is continuing to recover, the firm said.

WAS SUNDAY night news night around the TV set for the Gallagher clan when John Jr. was growing up in Wilmington? Maybe not then, but it probably is now. This Sunday night marks the second-season premiere of HBO's drama "The Newsroom," in which Gallagher portrays the cable-news show's senior producer, James Harper. As a kid, the now-29-year-old actor recalled recently, it wasn't so much TV news that impressed him. He preferred the weather, as forecast by a popular Channel 10 meteorologist.
