Existing-home sales in the eight-county Philadelphia region continued their decline in February, falling 27.4 percent from a year ago. This despite an unexpected rise nationwide as buyers took advantage of deep discounts on foreclosures. The regional drop was three percentage points lower than the year-over-year January decline, but sales of existing homes remain about half of what they were before the boom ended here in August 2007, according to Prudential Fox & Roach HomExpert Report, using data from Trend Multiple Listing Service.

Google "well-traveled" and don't be surprised if T.J. Brennan's name pops up. At 27, he already has been with seven NHL organizations, and he is hoping he has made his final stop. In his backyard, of all places. Brennan is living the dream. He has signed a contract with the Flyers, the team he idolized while growing up in nearby Moorestown. "The Flyers," Brennan said after working out at their Voorhees practice facility the other day, "are the closest team to my heart. I grew up right cross the bridge and I was very fortunate to be able to go see games.

A Camden man has been sentenced to life without parole for fatally shooting a woman during a robbery in 2011 and then breaking into a nearby home and sexually assaulting a woman there, authorities said Thursday. Steven Alicea, 23, was convicted in June of murder, aggravated sexual assault, and armed robbery. John Gonzalez, 20, who was sentenced in April to 41 years in prison, acted with Alicea, authorities said. Alicea and Gonzalez were carrying .22-caliber revolvers when they fatally shot Lori Breiding, 38, and took her purse in the 2600 block of Cramer Street on Sept.

DEAR ABBY: I am a bisexual female college graduate living at home, and an only child. I have had one sexual encounter with a woman, but never a relationship. I have, however, had relationships with men. I came out to my mother when I was a teenager. She didn't believe me, but did say that she would not mention it to my other parents or family members. (I have two stepparents, as both biological parents remarried.) I am considering - if I find a woman to go on a date with/be with - pursuing a lesbian relationship.

The Phillies will start next season where they started 2016 and they will end with a glut of home games at Citizens Bank Park. Major League Baseball released its 2017 schedule on Wednesday, a schedule that includes a second straight opening day - April 3, 2017 - in Cincinnati and 16 of the Phillies' final 19 games at home. The most brutal stretch of the schedule is in early August, when the Phillies will play 13 games in Western or Mountain time zones over a 20-day span. National League East teams are paired with American League West teams next season in interleague play, which makes for longer travel.

When he was a student at Harriton High School in Lower Merion, Alon Shaya chopped a lot of onions. That's because Shaya - now a superstar chef whose New Orleans spot was just named best new restaurant in the country - was a troublemaker as a kid. And every time he got thrown out of class, he'd ask to be sent to Donna Barnett's home-economics class. Barnett, a spitfire of a woman who just retired after 25 years at Harriton, saw something in the troubled teen. When he was at his worst, Shaya would face a mountain of onions.

Boomi was a pioneer cloud-computing company, 30 engineers and salespeople in a hillside office north of Berwyn. It sold blue-chip clients like Siemens and JPMorgan its AtomSphere-brand software, uniting and updating email, HR, sales, and inventory, via remote servers, faster and cheaper than on-site systems. Then Dell Computer bought it from founder Rick Nucci, boss Bob Moul, and investors led by New York's FirstMark Capital in 2010. The cloud was the future, said Dell boss Michael Dell.

We recently spent a month in France, where tourism has fallen off this year because of terrorist attacks in the streets of Paris and on the beaches of Nice. On this 15th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, we reflect on how fears of terrorism have changed travel and the perception travelers have. We like to think that when we decide on a destination to visit, fear of terrorism is not a major factor in our planning, but that's not always true. When we got married in 1986, we had a dream honeymoon to Paris planned.

The Union have double motivation to bounce back when they host the Montreal Impact in Saturday's key Major League Soccer game at Talen Energy Stadium. The Union will look to rebound from Saturday's 3-0 loss to the host Chicago Fire, a team tied for the second fewest points in the 20-team MLS. The Union are also smarting from their last game with the Impact, a 5-1 loss in Montreal on July 23. "We want to come back and prove to everybody we are ready for November," said Union defender Richie Marquez, referring to the postseason.

Beth Goldwater grew up summering in a recreational resort community in the Poconos. She joined the children's swim team there and competed in pools at nearby resorts, most of which had been developed in the mid-20th century with modest, chalet-style homes around man-made lakes. One resort, Buck Hill Falls, was older, grander, and more beautiful, Beth remembers. "Why don't we live here?" she wondered. It had an Olympic-size pool and much more. There were rocky cliffs, running creeks, a dramatic waterfall, woodlands of rhododendron and hemlock, and splendid stone mansions set into the sides of the hills.
