Edward J. Kaminski was a dinner-plate fisherman, comfortable seeking out blues and flounders for his kitchen from his 18-foot motorboat. Closer to land than to the ocean deep. But in the 1990s, he and a few older men ventured forth, joining a younger sailboat crew. "The young guys sailed to Bermuda, and raced in a regatta there," but they had to fly back to their jobs, his wife, Helen, said. "So it was the old guys who brought the boats back," with all the heavy lifting that the effort demanded.

INDIANAPOLIS - A tumultuous year in which Howie Roseman was removed from football operations in favor of Chip Kelly only to be reinstated after Kelly was fired illustrated that the two men had many differences. But as much as they seemingly had polar opposite personalities and football backgrounds, Roseman and Kelly differed on how to manage the Eagles roster and salary cap. It could be said that Kelly's free spending ways ultimately did him in, and as a result made Roseman even more attractive to owner Jeffrey Lurie.

HARRISBURG - As blizzard conditions began to strand motorists for what would become 24 hours of icy discomfort last month, Pennsylvania Turnpike managers were hampered because they relied on a single afternoon weather forecast that understated the severity of the storm, they said Tuesday. Testifying before a state Senate committee, Turnpike Commission Chairman Sean Logan said the officials relied on a Jan. 22 midafternoon advisory from AccuWeather Inc., its contracted forecasting service, that called for what seemed a "manageable range" of snow in south central Pennsylvania.

It was a dark day for Pete Mackanin. The Phillies had just finished a disappointing season with a .500 record, ending a run of five straight National League East titles. The misguided initial blame for the fantastic fall was placed on hitting coach Greg Gross, first base coach Sam Perlozzo and Mackanin, who was Charlie Manuel's bench coach that season. All three were immediately fired after the final game of the 2012 season in Washington. "It was disappointing, but I had been fired before for what I felt like was no good reason," Mackanin said last month during a Phillies winter banquet stop in Lakewood, N.J. Stick around baseball for 48 years and you are bound to be fired a time or two for no good reason.

Philadelphia Archbishop Charles J. Chaput said Thursday that the Faith in the Future Foundation's management of archdiocesan high schools has been so successful that both sides have agreed to an early contract extension. The announcement, which the archdiocese called a highlight of Catholic Schools Week, was made at Archbishop Ryan High School in the Far Northeast - one of the 17 archdiocesan secondary schools in the five-county archdiocese that enroll 13,300 students. "We weren't sure if it was going to work, so we entered into a contract for a limited time in order to test it," the archbishop said.

Discredited abortion doctor Steven Brigham may be entitled to manage the New Jersey clinics he was ordered to sell when that state took his medical license in 2014 for endangering patients. That's part of a ruling released Tuesday by the New Jersey Board of Medical Examiners, the same regulators who yanked his license after he was found to be illegally performing dangerous late-term abortions. As part of that action, Brigham was ordered to sell his interest in his seven New Jersey clinics.

A third spends much of her time studying Title IX.
