Favorites Bonnie George of Philmont and Jan Albert of Green Valley encountered strong opposition for 13 holes yesterday before winning the 46th Huntingdon Valley Country Club Invitation golf tournament by 3 and 2 over Waynesborough's Judy Owens and Molly Markle.

George-Albert tied the match with a par on No. 11 and went 1 up when both players parred the 13th, the 135-yard hole with a lake.

The Rev. Sharon R. Graff, who had a trailblazing career in ministry on the West Coast, is leading a Montgomery County church, Gloria Dei in Huntingdon Valley, with the same liberal flair. As the lead pastor of a California congregation, Graff welcomed gay members into the church and officiated at several same-sex marriages as she advocated for social justice. She also opposed an initiative to keep a Christian cross on a city seal, and refused to perform any weddings during the time that California disallowed same-sex marriages.

A plan announced recently by the U.S. Postal Service to close its Huntingdon Valley office has encountered vehement opposition from area residents. "We're going to fight this tooth and nail," said M.R. Cohen, a local Republican committeeman. The office to be closed is in the Bethayres Shopping Center at Old Welsh Road and Huntingdon Pike. Service to Huntingdon Valley residents would be based in a yet-to-be-constructed building nearly 15 miles away in the northern part of Horsham Township, according to Huntingdon Valley postmaster Robert Heasley.

Jim Howat has a ready answer when asked the reason for Huntingdon Valley's great success in the Country Club Swimming Association of Greater Philadelphia: It's all in the strokes. For Huntingdon Valley's swimmers, that means the butterfly, the breaststroke, and, particularly, the backstroke. Howat believes strongly in teaching them at a young age. "We have kids swimming those strokes when they are 5," said Howat, who has coached Huntingdon Valley to 16 league championships and three second-place finishes in the last 19 years.

It sounded like a scene from a horror movie. A middle schooler comes home from playing basketball and finds his parents' bodies. Both are dead, both mutilated by a chainsaw. The gruesome murder-suicide in Lower Moreland on Tuesday orphaned the couple's three sons, and shocked a close-knit Montgomery County community that knew Nicole and Christopher Peppelmans as caring and attentive parents. Nicole Peppelman, 43, had also been choked and stabbed, coroner Walter Hofman said Wednesday.

ISSUE | ETHICS With generous friends like Seth Williams' . . . My friends and I frequently exchange gifts on special occasions. Usually, it's a dozen golf balls or something similar on birthdays. Never has any friend paid for a vacation, plane ticket, or major home repair. Since Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams' friends didn't want anything in return for their extravagant gifts, I wonder whether they would like another friend. |Neil Mittelman, Huntingdon Valley

RINGOES, N.J. - This wasn't the way Chris Crawford wanted to close out the 36-hole Philadelphia Open, after holding the lead for most of the day Monday. Leading by 2 strokes on the last hole, Crawford faced a shot out of the right rough that he didn't find overly difficult, but he caught the ball heavy and watched in dismay as it splashed into a pond that guards the green short and left at the Ridge at Back Brook. The resulting double bogey, and a par by playing partner Jeff Osberg, created a tie for the championship of the Golf Association of Philadelphia major, and forced a four-hole aggregate-score playoff on Tuesday morning at the Hunterdon County layout.

The key to victory in the Golf Association of Philadelphia's Middle-Amateur Championship for Matt Mattare probably came on Wednesday, when he gave himself a pep talk after he missed a 5-foot birdie putt that didn't come close to going in. "I just waved at it," the 30-year-old Saucon Valley member said Thursday after capturing the Middle-Amateur in a three-man playoff. "It was my 11th hole. I was like, 'What are you doing being tentative? You're not even in the tournament. Start being decisive.' From that point forward, before every shot, I was like, 'Be decisive.' " Mattare, who works in wealth management in New York and lives in Jersey City, N.J., shot a 1-over-par 72 at Waynesborough Country Club in Paoli to finish at 1-over 143. Michael Brown, the 2009 Middle-Amateur champion, already was at that number for 36 holes after a 70. Together, the two waited as Matthew Finger, a co-leader after the first round, lined up a 4-foot par putt at the par-5 18th that would give him the victory.

ISSUE | PUBLIC HEALTH Let's call a cigarette a cigarette I applaud the Food and Drug Administration's recent ruling to ban e-cigarette sales to minors and require safety reviews for vaping products ("Thank you for not vaping?" May 17). Like traditional cigarettes, e-cigarettes contain nicotine, an extremely addictive substance. And e-cigarette products have been found to contain harmful chemicals than can cause respiratory disease. Should we be asking the public to "pick their poison," or should we be educating them that no matter what type of cigarette they smoke, they are putting their health at risk?

Chip Lutz, one of only four players to win the Golf Association of Philadelphia's Middle-Amateur Championship more than once, shot a 2-under-par 69 Wednesday at Waynesborough Country Club in Paoli to grab a share of the lead after the first round. Lutz, 61, of LedgeRock, won last year's U.S. Senior Amateur at Hidden Creek in Egg Harbor Township, N.J. He carded four birdies and two bogeys over the 6,905-yard Waynesborough layout to move into a tie for first with Matthew Finger. Finger, of DuPont, competed earlier this week in the U.S. Amateur Four-Ball at Winged Foot in Mamaroneck, N.Y. He birdied five holes against three bogeys for his 2-under total.

Michael Holahan, 58, of Elkins Park, a merchant for three decades at the Reading Terminal Market who became one of the venerable institution's most influential forces, died Wednesday, March 16, of heart failure at Abington Hospital-Jefferson Health. Mr. Holahan and his wife, Julie, opened the Pennsylvania General Store in 1987, when "the market was all beat up," longtime friend Brent Cossrow said. "In a very understated and not visible to the public way, he helped to change the market," said Cossrow, vice chairman of the Reading Terminal Market Corp., whom Mr. Holahan approached a decade ago to be the merchants' first general counsel.
