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.

In his prime, vice cops affectionately dubbed him "the gentleman gambler of Montgomery County. " Mayor Frank L. Rizzo called him son-in-law. And in the gambling world, Joseph Vito Mastronardo Jr. was known as one of America's premier sports bookmakers, with a network stretching from his home in Huntingdon Valley to a Costa Rican office park that raked in millions from high-end gamblers who thought nothing of dropping $10,000 or more on a game....

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.

After suffering the equivalent of a golf nightmare two days earlier in U.S. Amateur qualifying, Brandon Matthews put the horror behind him Wednesday at Philadelphia Cricket Club and won the Philadelphia Open for the second time in three years. Matthews, 20, who will be a senior at Temple in September, fired a 4-under-par 66 in the morning at the club's Wissahickon course and followed it up with a 71 in the afternoon for a 137 total and a 2-stroke victory in the 111th playing of the championship conducted by the Golf Association of Philadelphia.

How "local" is your beer? It used to be that proximity of the brewery and clever references on the label would suffice. But the local quotient has ratcheted higher, lately, as prime ingredients themselves have become sourced regionally, too, in particular grains grown and malted locally by a pair of relatively new malthouses, Deer Creek in Glen Mills and Double Eagle in Huntingdon Valley. The cost is higher than malts imported, say, from Germany. But brewmaster John Wible at 2nd Story Brewing in Old City shows just how rewardingly vivid those fresh local grains can be in his toasty new Pennsylvania Lager, a deep-amber Vienna-style brew made with 95 percent barley and 5 percent rye from Deer Creek.

After a wet but busy day of competition Thursday, the 115th BMW Philadelphia Amateur Championship will come down to a pair of 19-year-old "best friends" who have known each other for a dozen years and played golf for rival Inter-Ac schools. Second-seeded Cole Berman (Haverford School) of Philadelphia Cricket Club and No. 3 seed Michael Davis (Malvern Prep) of Aronimink won their quarterfinal and semifinal matches at Llanerch Country Club in Havertown to earn their way into the 36-hole championship match on Saturday.

Bryn & Dane's expands Not too long ago, a guy named Bryn was sharing a room with a guy named Dane. Bryn worked late into the night on his idea for a healthy fast-food restaurant. Dane just wanted a good night's sleep. They're brothers; Bryn is now 30 and Dane is 14. Four years ago, Bryn Davis opened a small smoothie shop that morphed into a well-trafficked cafe in Horsham, a catering arm, and a stand inside the Ambler YMCA. Menu is based on wraps, salads, and smoothies.

It might have seemed strange to see so many spectators on the golf course for a second-round match in the BMW Philadelphia Amateur Championship, but this was no ordinary duel that was contested Wednesday at Llanerch Country Club. The Golf Association of Philadelphia's equivalent of a heavyweight bout involved two former Llanerch members - two-time champion and five-time GAP player of the year Michael McDermott against defending champ Jeff Osberg, the medalist during Tuesday qualifying.

The blast of the mortar shell threw Marine Lance Cpl. Joe Yonan six feet in the air and should have killed him. But the largest piece of shrapnel cut through his backpack and passed through the New Testament, stopping at Revelation. At his Huntingdon Valley home, Yonan, 91, still treasures the book that saved him 70 years ago on Okinawa and gives "thanks to God. " Along the coast of France, Navy machinist mate James Gullborg manned an antiaircraft gun on a ship that delivered tanks as shells shrieked overhead during the D-Day Normandy invasion.

Scott McNeil worked diligently before the start of the 2015 golf season just so he'd have a chance to contend in the Golf Association of Philadelphia's Middle-Amateur Championship. When he finished as the medalist in the May 11 U.S. Open local qualifier at Trump National-Philadelphia, he figured he'd have a decent chance. On a damp, raw day Thursday at St. Davids Golf Club, he found out he was right. McNeil, 29, kept his focus despite a pair of front-nine double bogeys and hit two big shots on the back nine that led to birdies, giving him just enough room to grab a 1-stroke victory in the 32d Middle-Amateur, the season's first major.

JOE CONKLIN says the player personnel moves the Philly teams are making are killing his act. "At this rate I'll only be able to do Cole Hamels for another 10 minutes," the man of 1,000 voices said with a laugh. While players come and go, one thing remains constant in Conklin's life: Mary Kate's Legacy Foundation. Conklin's niece, Mary Kate Marlow, suffered from a rare progressive disease called Infantile Neuro-axonal Dystrophy and died in 2005 at age 11. "She was a very special kid," Conklin said.

Two people were found dead in their home on a secluded road in Lower Moreland Township on Tuesday afternoon, with wounds from a chainsaw. Local police and the Montgomery County district attorney said they were investigating one of the deaths as an apparent homicide. A Lower Moreland police spokesman declined to characterize the nature of the second death or provide more details about the crime. A news release said police were dispatched to the house on Country Lane near Paper Mill Road in the township's Huntingdon Valley section after a couple's juvenile son called to report he found his parents unresponsive with lacerations delivered by a chainsaw.
