When Ed Sasinowski came home from Vietnam, he quickly left the war behind. He jumped so swiftly into civilian life - selling office supplies to some of Philadelphia's largest employers - that he didn't bother to collect a Bronze Star for courage or a Purple Heart for a shrapnel wound. He was busy. He married Deborah Smith, who said they were "soul mates," and had three children. They moved to Huntingdon Valley and then to Maple Glen. And he cofounded the firm Xtec, providing office copiers to a client base of people who had become his friends.

Upper Dublin placed fourth in the PIAA District 1 Class 4A baseball tournament and earned a berth in states four years ago. Now, with a big boost from one of the school's most versatile athletes, the Cardinals are in position to equal or surpass the 2012 success. A four-year starter and two-way player on the diamond, Cole Swiger was part of District 1 championship teams in golf and football. He was a high jumper and 4x400 relay participant in indoor track and field. "He's always been a great competitor," Upper Dublin skipper Ed Wall said.

ISSUE | CAMPAIGN 2016 Drawing the wrong conclusion Signe Wilkinson's cartoon showing Hillary Clinton in Congress saying she knows how to "reach across the aisle and get things done" with a GOP elephant, and Sen. Bernie Sanders on a planetoid asking, "What aisle?" (March 11) misrepresents the Democratic presidential candidates' political experience. Clinton's stint in the Senate was eight years - not even two terms. Sanders is in his 10th year in the Senate after serving 16 years in the House as Vermont's only representative.

They were married by a rabbi, under a chuppah, in a Unitarian Church. Rich stepped on a glass. Their mothers lit a unity candle. And while the ceremony might have appeared to be a seamless melding of his Jewish heritage and her Christian upbringing, it didn't reflect the long, sometimes anguished, conversations that began even before they were engaged. They'd met on Match.com, drawn into an e-mail volley by a shared sense of humor (both were fans of the TV series MacGyver )

After his two brothers attended and played football at La Salle, Aidan Kerrigan says it was pretty much a no-brainer to follow in their footsteps. "I got a good feel for all the school had to offer," the 18-year-old said. "I knew it would be the perfect place for me academically and athletically. " Connor Kerrigan (Class of 2012) was a second-team all-Catholic League center for the Explorers; John Kerrigan (2009) played linebacker. This season, as a ball-hawking inside linebacker and senior captain, Aidan Kerrigan has played a key role in La Salle's drive to the Catholic League Class AAAA championship game.

The clouds had grown dark and menacing late Wednesday as Matt Teesdale reached the tee on his 36th hole at the Philadelphia Open owning a seemingly safe cushion with a 3-stroke lead. But Teesdale needed every stroke of that advantage after a pulled tee shot on the par-3 ninth at Applebrook Golf Club and wound up having to make a four-foot double-bogey putt for a 1-stroke victory in the 110th edition of the Golf Association of Philadelphia major. Teesdale, 23, of Maple Glen, shot morning and afternoon rounds of 3-under-par 68 for a total of 136, edging Merion amateur Michael McDermott.

A Stark reminder of sacrifice Although the anniversary of one of the worst disasters in U.S. Navy history passed this month largely unobserved, the near-sinking of the USS Stark off the coast of Saudi Arabia in 1987 killed 37 sailors and wounded 21 others. Two Exocet missiles fired by an Iraqi fighter jet had slammed into the Stark hull. In what was surely a night of hell forever seared into their psyches, crewmembers fought gallantly to extinguish the inferno that consumed their ship and threatened to send her to a watery grave.
