All that I know about Drew Lewis is what I have read in newspapers. He is and long has been one of the most proficient hatchet men. Skill in identifying who should be fired is the most important factor in any reorganization. Haverford should have given a doctorate to Drew Lewis as its most proficient alumnus 20 years ago. The Republican Party should have recognized that his skills as a hatchetman are what the nation most needs. His courage in being true to his principles, as in the Haverford commencement, demonstrate why he would be the strongest presidential candidate available.

When Downingtown took a couple of early leads against Haverford in their opening-round game of the District 1 girls' lacrosse tournament yesterday, memories of last year's stunning first-round loss to Springfield came flooding back for Fords coach Nancy McGoldrick. Some of her players felt them, too. "This time we were determined that wasn't going to happen," said Haverford junior Colleen O'Hara, who helped spearhead a seven-goal surge that turned a tight game into a 14-5 romp for the Fords.

The Haverford High ice hockey team answered the doubts with determination, countered the boos with belief. "Everybody out there doubted us," senior captain and right winger Kevin Tallon said. "We were always the bottom dog. " The Fords (15-10-4) aren't barking from the bottom any more. They have qualified for the Flyers Cup, regardless of how they fare against Monsignor Bonner in the Eastern League Tier I championship series. In the best-of-three series, Haverford topped Bonner, 5-3, in Monday night's opener at the Skatium.

Calling all wannabe assistant township managers: Haverford is looking for someone to fill a position it hasn't had in a long time, a person who can oversee the public works department and help Township Manager Tom Bannar with administrative duties. Other municipalities, such as Tredyffrin, Springfield and Lower Merion, employ assistant township managers. Haverford Commissioners President Fred Moran suggested creating the position at a meeting Jan. 9, after the death a week earlier of Public Works Director Al DiGirolamo.

Meeting in closed session with a lawsuit hanging over their heads, the Haverford commissioners this week agreed on a reapportionment plan that board members say more nearly equalizes the populations of the township's nine wards. The Monday night session was hastily called last week after the League of Women Voters filed a suit in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia, contending that the township was violating the voters' equal-protection rights. The timing conflicted with a ice-hockey game played at the Skatium to benefit a Monsignor Bonner High School student who was burned in a school accident.

The Haverford High field hockey team went to bed last night knowing it will be playing another home game. The Fords will host Hatboro-Horsham tomorrow in the quarterfinals of the District 1 Class AAA playoffs. It's a distinct home-field advantage, too, and the Fords know it. Depending which direction play is going, teams are running and passing uphill or downhill. Yesterday, the fifth-seeded Fords had the downhill roll in the first half, and that is when they did their damage, scoring all three of their goals in a 3-0 victory over Owen J. Roberts.

One of W. Boulton Dixon's first tasks as the new headmaster of The Haverford School was to clean house. In April, four months before he was officially instated, he fired a good chunk of the staff. Others, sensing that enormous changes were about to take place at the elite boys school, resigned. When the purge was over, 19 of the 90-member faculty had been replaced. Although Dixon maintained in an interview that high turnovers are normal when a new administration takes over, Alfred Rauch Jr., president of the board of the directors, acknowledged that Haverford was looking to hire "new faces with new ideas.

After the immensity of last weekend's Made in America Festival, perhaps it's time to head to the suburbs' bucolic environs. This is not the reason that Haverford Civic Council, booking curator Al Fichera, and area native Barry Gutman is putting on this weekend's Sixth Annual Haverford Music Festival, but it's a start. "We wanted to showcase the talents of all genres cultivated in this area," says Fichera, a producer of jangle pop band Flight of Mavis and troubadour Kenn Kweder. Mavis' Frank Brown, who resides in Havertown along with Fichera and Gutman, has a new band, Travel Lanes.

It would be no stretch to call John R. Coleman a jack of all trades. Mr. Coleman, who was indeed best known as Jack, did time as a trash hauler, sandwich maker, and ditch digger. Most remarkably, he did it all incognito during his term as president of Haverford College. Mr. Coleman, 95, who turned his undercover work into a well-known book, Blue Collar Journal: A College President's Sabbatical, died late Tuesday at a Washington hospital after a long bout with Parkinson's disease, a son said Wednesday.

It is clear that the starting running back for the Haverford School will be a force to be reckoned with this season. The only thing murky, however, is how to spell his first name. The player, a senior headed to Colgate next season, prefers Malik Twyman. He said his mother, Carol Twyman, prefers Mallik. His father, Charlie, spells it Malik. No matter how many L's are used, Twyman led the Fords to a historic "W" Saturday night against host Del-Val Charter. Haverford School dominated the Warriors, 43-6, and set a school record with its 20th consecutive victory.

'I like money," investment banker Naomi Bishop ( Breaking Bad 's Anna Gunn) declares at the opening of Equity , a supremely intelligent Wall Street financial thriller. One of four smartly dressed female executives chairing a women's mentorship event, Naomi explains how her top salary helps pay for her brother's schooling while also keeping her in good shoes. Women, Naomi adds, need to stop being ashamed of money. Of having it, making it, spending it. No, this isn't the second coming of Gordon Gekko and his entreaty that "Greed is good.

In his first Haverford High School swim meet, Shane Ryan dove in for the 50-yard freestyle, and Haverford coach Matt Stewart just knew. Ryan was something special. "He beat a senior from another team," Stewart said, "and I was like,'Whoa, we might have something here beyond just a pretty good swimmer.' He just took off from there. " Ryan's rise has been unconventional. After high school, the 22-year-old Havertown native swam at Penn State for three years. Ryan, a dual Irish-American citizen, then moved to Ireland to train with its national team.

Even colleges with endowments as large as Haverford's are not immune to the financial challenges hitting universities across the country. Haverford's board of managers this month approved a plan to set an annual cap on the college's mushrooming financial aid budget and increase the size of the freshman class by seven students a year for five years in an effort to balance the budget. The plan has proved controversial because it includes modifying the college's long-held policy of admitting students regardless of ability to pay and giving them enough financial aid to attend.

Culver Academy goaltender Matt Schmidt was pinned deep in his own zone with a Haverford School defender closing quickly when he launched the ball up for grabs in the third quarter of the Inter-Ac Challenge championship Sunday at Villanova. When it finally returned from orbit, the ball bounced off a Haverford School defender's stick and right to Culver's Brodie Gillespie, who flipped it to Wheaton Jackoboice, who scored the final Culver goal in its thrilling, 8-7 victory against the Fords.

Defenders who wield a long pole in lacrosse rarely get to wind up and whip a shot on goal. Haverford School senior defender Jack Marshall, however, got the opportunity on Wednesday in the third quarter of the Fords' 13-4 quarterfinal blowout of Penn Charter in the Inter-Ac Challenge at the Proving Grounds in Conshohocken. Marshall, who will play at High Point next year, had a running start before he wound up and fired from about 25 yards away from the goal. "It's fun to run down and get a shot," Marshall said.
