Q: How do I get the man in my life to be more open? We've been dating for three months, and everything has been near perfect, except he won't tell me anything about himself. I ask about his job, and he says, "I never talk about my work. " I ask about his family, and he says next to nothing. His dad was in the service, and they lived in eight or nine different places as he grew up. Both his parents are dead, and he says he has no siblings. I researched his name online and could find nothing.

Somerset County's new prosecutor is reviewing the investigative files into the 2014 deaths of Cooper Health System CEO John P. Sheridan and his wife, but said he has not decided what his office "will do or not do" regarding the case. On Wednesday, Prosecutor Michael Robertson acknowledged the media interest in the high-profile case, but he said he would not comment while the state medical examiner is considering the family's request to overturn a ruling that John Sheridan committed suicide.

Security has been beefed up at transportation hubs in the Philadelphia area following the deadly terror attacks in Brussels, police officials said Tuesday. They stressed that there is no known viable threat in the region but asked residents be on their guard and to report anything they feel is suspicious. "If you see something that makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up, tell somebody," said SEPTA Police Chief Tom Nestel III. "If you think you're bothering us by calling 911, bother us. " Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross said, "We are having an increased presence in and around transportation hubs, the airport particularly around nonsecure areas.

ISSUE | GOV. CHRISTIE Time to resign It was very unfortunate that Gov. Christie did not attend the funeral of state Trooper Sean Cullen on Monday ("Christie is Trump's interviewer in N.C.," Tuesday). Christie is supposed to be a crusader for law enforcement as a former U.S. attorney. Instead, he decided to campaign for Donald Trump. With such issues as the recovery from Sandy, state program cuts that raised local taxes, Bridgegate, serving as a part-time governor while running for president, and now campaigning for Trump, haven't we had enough?

Gov. Christie took on a new role while campaigning Monday with Donald Trump: interviewing his former GOP rival at an event in North Carolina. He didn't throw any curveballs, however. "What you've done all around the world, in terms of building great businesses, I think folks are confident that if you become president, you'll be able to do that same thing for our country," Christie said, posing his first question to Trump during the event, streamed online from Lenoir-Rhyne University in Hickory.

ISSUE | GUN CONTROL Help stop shootings When will Pennsylvania stop putting guns over lives? I'm sure it's a question the Pittsburgh community of Wilkinsburg is asking after Wednesday's shootings left four women and one man dead and three others wounded. I'm disgusted by the disregard for life and the love for guns in Pennsylvania. And I'm angry as I watch most of my fellow lawmakers turn a blind eye to gun violence and proliferation while citizens are killed daily. As a member of the Pa. SAFE Caucus, I am fighting to reduce violence through sensible gun laws, funding for mental-health services, and stronger tools for law enforcement.

The New Jersey Supreme Court on Wednesday did not agree with the convicted leader of a Camden drug organization, who challenged evidence obtained from a "roving wiretap" used to keep tabs on suspects using "burner" throw-away phones. In a unanimous decision, the court upheld an Appellate Division decision and rulings by a Superior Court judge that allowed authorities in the Camden County Prosecutor's Office, along with a joint Camden-Philadelphia drug task force, to use the same warrant to target multiple phone numbers when suspects deliberately changed phones to conceal drug activity.

JOHNSTOWN, Pa. - In January, a deputy attorney general and two agents walked into a judge's chambers here with questions. They wanted to discuss a meeting decades earlier that had ended with a "monster" priest being allowed to go free. Back in 1985, Cambria County Judge Patrick T. Kiniry had been a local prosecutor, and met with Bishop James Hogan to discuss a priest suspected of sexually abusing children. As leader of the Altoona-Johnstown Diocese, the bishop had outsize influence in the area.

THE AMMON Bundy-led standoff at the Malheur Wildlife Refuge is eerily similar to the MOVE crisis that gripped Philadelphia in 1985. Like the armed back-to-nature group MOVE, the Bundy-led militia has a yearslong history of conflict with the government. And while both MOVE and the Bundys engaged government forces in violent confrontations before armed standoffs, there is a major difference between the groups. MOVE was black. The Bundys are white. The Bundys' issues with the government go back to 1993, when the federal Bureau of Land Management began a conservation effort that require ranchers who wanted to graze their cattle on federally protected land to pay grazing fees.
