A baseball season without a home run by Brian Kuklick? It couldn't be. It wasn't. Horsham clinched the Lower Montco American Legion regular-season title Tuesday evening with a 1-0 win over host Fort Washington on Kuklick's first home run of the season. Kuklick, who slugged seven home runs during the high school season for Hatboro-Horsham, blasted a second-inning shot over the tennis-court fence in left field at Germantown Academy for the game's only run. Horsham is to host fourth-place Cedarbrook in the first round of the playoffs Sunday.

Double Visions, a Horsham go-go bar that the township is seeking to cut in half, has won a reprieve in its fight to keep an addition that doubled the size of the bar. A Montgomery County Court judge has denied a township request to immediately raze the 560-foot addition at 1138 Easton Rd. but left open the township's option to refile the request. The one-page order from Judge Horace A. Davenport, which was received Monday by lawyers for the township and the bar, sends the issue back to the township Zoning Hearing Board, where the dispute began two years ago. A hearing on the addition is scheduled for Oct. 12 before the zoning board.

Horsham American Legion baseball players John Tripetti, Bill Bradley and Mike Corbi, along with coach Al Tasch, had a dream start last year as the team stormed to an 11-0 record at the outset of the Lower Montco American Legion season. The same trio has been tortured by an 0-10 nightmare this season, and a bewildered Tasch can offer little consolation. "I told the team last year we were not as good as our 11-0 start," Tasch said. "And I told this team that we are not as bad as our 0-10 start.

As federal regulators addressed concerns Monday night about the health effects of drinking water contaminated by chemicals used at naval bases in Bucks and Montgomery Counties, one answer remained elusive: What is the impact of drinking the contaminated water for decades before the contaminants were discovered? "The short answer is, we really don't know and we really can't answer that," Karl Markiewicz, a toxicologist for the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, told about 200 Horsham residents at Hatboro-Horsham High School.

SHIPPENSBURG - Nick Marino almost left everything he had in the pole vault pit Friday afternoon at the PIAA track and field championships in Shippensburg. On a near 90-degree day under a relentless sun and almost cloudless sky, the Hatboro-Horsham vaulter eventually outdueled nearly every competitor, notched a personal best and finished in second place. On his final attempt, No. 10 on the day, Marino plopped into the red pit, his sanguine-colored jersey nearly matching his sun-battered skin.

At first, Dee Moyer thought the bus carrying the Hatboro-Horsham softball team had just hit a pothole Tuesday. That's what it felt like to the senior. But then she looked to her left and saw a car "smashed up" against the yellow bus. The Hatters were on Sumneytown Pike, about seven minutes from their destination, North Penn, when the accident occurred. After seeing that everyone on the bus was safe and that the man in the car was OK, too, Moyer's focus turned to the game. The shortstop worried about being late.

Ryan Brown isn't quite old enough to buy lottery tickets just yet, but the Central Bucks East junior hopes his lucky streak will rub off on somebody. On Tuesday, Brown led all scorers with four goals in the Patriots' 10-8 victory against visiting Hatboro-Horsham in the first round of the District 1 lacrosse playoffs. Brown, who netted a backhanded goal in traffic and had another carom in off his shoulder, was a major contributor in the Patriots' come-from-behind triumph. "Sometimes you just get lucky like that," said Brown, 17, who also received the game ball.

Pennridge skipper Tom Nuneviller has been around baseball a long time and knows that players such as Danny Long don't come along too often. Sadly for Nuneviller and the Rams, Long's high school career is winding down. The smooth-fielding shortstop and hard-throwing righthander will soon take his talents to Monmouth. "It's pretty nice to have a Danny Long on your team," Nuneviller said. "I'm glad he's on our side. " Long pitched three innings of scoreless relief and delivered an RBI single Tuesday as visiting Pennridge eased to a 6-1 victory over Hatboro-Horsham in a Suburban One League Continental Conference matchup.

At first, Taylor Sciubba said she wasn't sure she was even going to reach second. No, that's not right, the starting pitcher for the Hatboro-Horsham softball team admitted. She was exaggerating, making a joke about her speed on the base paths. Reaching second wouldn't be the problem. As Sciubba left the batter's box, however, and rounded first in the fifth inning, there was a dull pain on the bottom of her left foot. The pain got sharper with each step she took, and the steps multiplied as the ball she sent flying into left field continued to roll.

A national investigation into claims that Veterans Affairs employees doctored records to hide backlogs in treatment for veterans found no such wrongdoing at its Philadelphia and Horsham facilities, VA officials said Thursday. The agency's Office of Inspector General said it examined complaints about scheduling problems at its West Philadelphia hospital, and noted the "archaic" computer system there. But it did not find any willful manipulation of data. In reviewing more than four years' worth of data from the Horsham clinic, inspectors found it never had more than six patients waiting for care at a time, and said "very few" had to wait more than 14 days for an appointment.
