In the February chill of 1975, a 15-year-old boy left his home in the Mexican state of Guanajuato, slipped illegally across the border at Yuma, Ariz., and boarded a plane for Philadelphia. Along with two older friends who joined him, Isidro Rodriguez was headed for snowbound Kennett Square. The promise of big money from working the mushroom farms there was the talk of their little city, Moroleón. "But it was a lie - and I didn't like it," recalls Rodriguez, who found hundreds of migrant workers from his town already toiling there in the dark, smelly, windowless cinder-block buildings for $1.85 an hour.

CHICAGO - Davey Johnson was named manager of the Washington Nationals on Sunday, three days after Jim Riggleman stunned the team by resigning. Johnson will manage the rest of the season and his first game will be Monday against the Los Angeles Angels. He has been a senior adviser with the team since 2009, though he hasn't managed in the big leagues since 2000 with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Johnson also agreed to a three-year consulting contract through 2013 that will allow him to remain with the team and help select a successor for next season.

By Paul Jablow It would be a nightmare Rotisserie league lineup: Tony La Russa and Ron Washington as the double-play combination, Terry Francona at first, Joe Girardi behind the plate, and Charlie Manuel, with his .198 big-league batting average, alongside Ron Roenicke in the outfield. These guys - all marginal major-league players at best - were heading six of the 10 teams in contention for the playoffs in the final days of the baseball season. Three other top teams were led by managers who never made the majors.

Chris Stamp, 70, who as a cockney kid from East London aspired to make a documentary film about the rise of British rock in the 1960s and ended up helping discover and manage a raucous working-class quartet called The Who, died Nov. 24 in Manhattan. The cause was complications of colorectal cancer, his wife, Calixte, said. "I was knocked out," Mr. Stamp recalled in 1966 of the night he first saw The Who perform in 1964. "But the excitement I felt wasn't coming from the group. I couldn't get near enough.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - There are more than a few Alabama folks who will tell you that junior AJ McCarron could be the best quarterback the Crimson Tide has had since, dare we say, Joe Namath. With apologies to Richard Todd (or was that Jay Barker?), that was nearly half a century ago. Yet when most people think about the defending national champions, the passing game probably isn't the first thing that comes to mind. Maybe it's defense, even if this one isn't Nick Saban's strongest.

After more than six hours of debate, the Lower Merion Township commissioners voted late Wednesday to approve a $275,000 pay package for township manager Douglas Cleland. A minority of Republicans led by commissioner Jenny Brown tried without success to amend the two-year pact, which would have caused it to be tabled under Roberts Rules of Order. The vote was 8 to 5, with one member of the 14-member panel absent. The yes votes all came from Democrats; the no votes came from three Republicans and two Democrats who broke with party lines.

A position in the Camden County Jail that has faced high turnover will be filled on an interim level this month, making that person who fills it the sixth jail population manager since 2011. The move comes amid a vacancy in the position and a letter from U.S. District Judge Jerome Simandle, who told county officials on Jan. 26 that he was "very concerned" about the turnover. The jail population manager focuses on how inmates are processed, from arrest to court date, and makes recommendations on how to improve their movement in the system.

Gus Sarno still makes cakes in the basement of the South Philadelphia rowhouse his grandfather bought in 1904 and turned into Isgro Pastries. He still stacks cookies into boxes at the dining room table where his family ate supper 60 years ago when the doorbell to the shop wasn't ringing. Sarno still sells cannolis out of glass cases a few steps from his grandmother's original kitchen. The bakery at 1009 Christian St., in other words, has seen a lot come and go at the Italian Market - good times, bad times, so-so times.

Running a Wawa store and managing a Roman Catholic parish might not seem to have much in common. But last week, a group of St. Charles Borromeo Seminary students, a year from being ordained as priests, had the last of five management-training sessions inspired by a program that St. Joseph's University professors developed for the convenience-store chain. For the seminarians, the Thursday management classes at St. Joseph's Haub School of Business were in sharp contrast to the philosophy and theology classes that are central to their formation as priests.

A local money manager must pay $48 million in damages to an Ambler couple who said he placed their money in unsuitable, illiquid investments such as a Polish tobacco company and turbine-engine makers in Tunisia. James and Jane Sutow last week were awarded $17.4 million in actual damages, slightly more than $30 million in treble damages and almost $1 million in legal fees and costs by the American Arbitration Association. The Sutows were clients of Family Endowment Partners in Wayne and its money manager, Lee Dana Weiss, from 2010 to 2013.
