The Phantoms fought back from a three-goal first-period deficit to pull within a goal twice, but they couldn't catch Hershey in a 5-3 loss at the Wachovia Spectrum last night in the American Hockey League. Jonathan Matsumoto, David Laliberte and Andreas Nodl notched the Phantoms' goals. Goalie J.S. Aubin saw his first action in more than a month and had 30 saves on 35 Hershey chances.

Ryan Potulny fired a shot from the right side and Alexandre Picard swept the rebound into the net with 2 1/2 minutes remaining. Brian Boucher took the loss in net with 25 saves on 27 shots.

The trouble with a chocolate high is it wears off quickly - and that can leave you feeling cranky. One month after members of Congress held a retreat in Hershey, America's chocolate capital, to relearn (or, in some cases, be introduced to) the arts of civil dialogue, two high-ranking lawmakers got in a jawing and shoving match on the House floor Wednesday. Rep. David Obey of Wisconsin, top Democrat on the Appropriations Committee, wagged an angry finger in the face of Republican Whip Tom DeLay of Texas, who responded with a shove and the kind observation that Mr. Obey was a "gutless chickens--t.

If anyone still doubts that the NHL lockout is all but official, they need to know that the Flyers yesterday assigned defensemen Chris Therien, Jason Bowen and Vladislav Boulin to Hershey. Therien definitely had made the Flyers' team, but was sent down so that he can play during the stoppage. "At least I'll be making something," Therien said. Like most younger NHL players, Therien has a "two-way" contract that allows for a lower salary if he plays in the minors. Flyers coach Terry Murray said Therien had done well in camp, but needed to play.

The Flyers yesterday assigned veteran goaltender Pete Peeters to their American Hockey League affiliate in Hershey so that he can play himself into game shape before he is needed by the Flyers. Peeters, 33, has not played for the Flyers so far this season. But with Ron Hextall sidelined for at least a month with a knee injury, coach Paul Holmgren said he expected Peeters to serve as Ken Wregget's backup. Peeters is to join Hershey for tonight's game in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

HERSHEY'S SYMPHONY MILK CHOCOLATE CANDY BAR. Plain and with almonds and toffee chips. 40 cents per 1.4-ounce or $1.65 per 7-ounce bar. CAROLYN: Let's get one thing straight right now: There is absolutely nothing wrong with Hershey's regular candy bar. It tastes great with almonds and as good without as it has for nearly a century. It's just that the executives at Hershey's had to do something to capture the attention of people who eat Haagen-Dazs ice cream and, they presume, attend the symphony.

The Hershey Co., the largest U.S. candy manufacturer, yesterday reported a 3 percent gain in its fourth-quarter profit, as restructuring costs partly offset gains from higher candy-bar prices, new products, and acquisitions. The producer of Kit Kat, Jolly Rancher, and many other candies said it earned $172.85 million, or 70 cents a share, in the fourth quarter of 2005, compared with $167.12 million, or 67 cents a share, in the same quarter the year before. Fourth-quarter sales in 2005 were up 6 percent to $1.35 billion from $1.27 billion the year before.

It was a pretty fast summer-job search for the son of the board chairman of the $12 billion Hershey Trust. And his dad took care of it. Robert Cavanaugh told the trust's top executive last April that his son Robert might have missed the window to get a summer internship and needed help. Within days, the executive, Eric Henry, contacted two money-management firms under contract with the charity and emailed the son's resumé. By the end of the month, both firms had made offers for summer internships.

A splintered Hershey Trust board that controls one of the nation's richest charities has spent $3.6 million on legal fees to investigate claims of possible wrongdoing by its own members, according to an internal letter from the board's chief compliance officer, Marc A. Woolley, and now-fired executive John Estey. In the last year, the board hired lawyers to probe whether two members engaged in insider trading of Hershey Co. stock. They did not, Zuckerman Spaeder L.L.C. and others found at a cost of $3 million, the letter said.

In a sign of the continuing chaos at the top of the $12 billion Hershey charity, the Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office is seeking the resignation of three long-standing board members at the Hershey School for poor children, according to a letter from the office obtained by the Inquirer. The resignations would amount to an overhaul of the 10-member board that runs one of the nation's richest charities. The letter asks the Hershey Trust directors to reduce board compensation, which it said exceeds its own rules, and asks members to personally bear the cost related to an internal conflict-of-interest investigation.

With all eyes on him, Kwahzere Ransom momentarily shielded his. The Math, Civics and Sciences sophomore stood at the foul line with about 30 seconds left in Tuesday night's PIAA Class A state semifinal at Philadelphia University and pulled the top of his jersey over his face. Before hitting a dramatic game-winning three-pointer to beat Constitution, 79-78, in overtime, Ransom had missed three consecutive free throws that could have helped the Mighty Elephants secure the victory.

HERSHEY - The lights inside Hershey's Giant Center often shine brightest on those who have seen them before. With six mats, hundreds of wrestlers and thousands of fans, the PIAA Class 3A wrestling championships present a daunting challenge for any first-time qualifier looking to make a mark in the country's most competitive state wrestling tournament. Last year, Upper Darby junior Colin Cronin was fresh meat, and he knew it. After failing to place at districts as a freshman, Cronin posted a 36-3 sophomore record while placing first at sectionals, districts and regionals before going 0-2 in his first state tournament appearance.

Philadelphia Traction Co. had just cut the hours of longtime employee and Havertown resident Joseph Wagner Sr., who immediately began looking for a way to make up the lost income. His solution: selling real estate and insurance, opening an office on Darby Road and partnering, in 1930, with Joe Wilson. Fast-forward to 2015. A. Graham Wagner Jr., who joined Wagner Real Estate when he graduated from Miami University of Ohio in 1972, decided he needed a break from the day-to-day and sold the business his grandfather had founded 86 years ago. Unlike many family-run real estate firms, which "merge" with the mega-brokerages, Wagner Real Estate was sold to Tyler and Clay Wagner, Graham's sons.

While working for a military supply agency in South Philadelphia, Phyllis Ariano decided in 1949 to take Italian language classes in Center City. Her parents, while Italian American, did not speak the language and she felt the need to learn, said son Joseph C. Bocco Jr. In those classes, she met Joseph C. Bocco Sr., who needed the language to speak more easily to the Italian immigrants who would be looking to him as a funeral director. For three years, while he studied mortuary science and apprenticed at a South Jersey funeral home, they courted.

Neil DeRiemer and his wife, Karen, used to look out their bedroom windows and see a waterfall cascading over a small dam just a few feet away. Like their neighbors, they watched blue herons, white egrets, and black turtles wade in the seven-acre basin that made their East Goshen homes waterfront properties. "It was like living in Longwood Gardens," said DeRiemer, 70. "How many waterfalls are left in Chester County?" Now Hershey's Mill Dam is dry, its basin drained after it failed state safety inspections about nine years ago. And township officials are facing a decision that has languished for years: what to do with a dam that some consider a defining landmark for their small Chester County community.

At the stroke of midnight Thursday, a 500-pound mushroom will fall from the Pennsylvania sky. So will a jumbo strawberry, an 85-pound Peeps chick, and a giant, edible hunk of bologna. Of course, as 2015 turns into 2016, that iconic ball in Times Square will drop as usual. And other spots will celebrate their own quirky drops - a peach for Georgia, cheese for Wisconsin. But by at least one count - the one touted by Pennsylvania officials - more objects are lowered or raised in the Keystone State to count down the arrival of the new year than in any other.

Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane said her office will join the Federal Trade Commission in a bid to block the proposed merger of Penn State Hershey Medical Center and PinnacleHealth System. Combined, the two systems would control 64 percent of the market in the Harrisburg region, including Dauphin, Cumberland, Perry and Lebanon Counties, Kane's office said. An FTC complaint to be filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania alleges that the two systems "compete vigorously on price, quality of care, and services provided, both for inclusion in commercial health plan networks and to attract patients from one another," according to Kane.
