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.

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.

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.

The fourth annual Tylenol Kids Classic for Cystic Fibrosis Golf Tournament, scheduled for July 28 to 30, will have a new home this year. The 36-hole event had been played at White Manor Golf Club in Malvern, but is moving to Commonwealth National Country Club, a par-71, 7,045-yard course in Horsham. The Arnold Palmer-designed layout, which is already recognized as one of the best in the area, opened last summer. White Manor will host the Senior PGA Bell Atlantic Classic, which moved from Chester Valley Golf Club, on May 24 to 26. Logistics would make it difficult for the club to host two major events in the same season.

Two referendums before the voters of Horsham on Nov. 3 would amend the local charter to keep it in line with state regulations passed since home rule was adopted in the township 22 years ago. Meanwhile, a question on the ballot in Rockledge asks voters in the tiny borough to authorize a new municipal building to replace the converted garage shared with the five-member Police Department. Officials say they are seeking voter support because of an accompanying tax increase to offset construction and land-purchase costs, which are expected to total $500,000.

Kevin, a police sergeant accustomed to 12-hour overnight shifts, recalls feeling slammed by sleep deprivation. Vanessa missed the freedom they'd had as a childless couple, the days of sipping wine in a gondola on the way to a Napa winery.
