A onetime Boscov's department store at Montgomery Mall opens Sunday as a brand-new Wegmans supermarket, a 126,000-square-foot freestanding grocery built from the demolished ruins of the old anchor in Montgomery County. Hordes of shoppers are expected to stroll through the supersize store in North Wales once doors open at 7 a.m., thanks partly to the Rochester, N.Y.-based company's slow pace of opening new locations: Only about three come on line each year, with far fewer in the Philadelphia area.

Charles H. Taylor was having lunch at his Center City eatery with actress Julie Harris when a poignant moment intruded. The pianist on duty realized that Harris had starred in the film East of Eden with the troubled James Dean, who died in 1955, the year the film was released. "He shifted into the music from East of Eden , and she began to cry," Mr. Taylor told an Inquirer interviewer in 1988, suggesting that Harris was comfortable enough to show emotion with him. Though a small lunch place, Taylor's Country Store had its fans, even some marquee names.

They began as two unremarkable suburban moments. In Havertown, a mother with her 7-year-old daughter in tow was just trying to get home from work. In Montgomeryville, two women had just pulled up at a friend's house for a meeting. Then the ordinary turned terrifying. Carjackers stole both vehicles at gunpoint. In Havertown, the mother struggled with her attackers for the gun and, in the process, one man was shot before they got away with her Toyota FJ Cruiser. In Montgomeryville, the driver of the Range Rover did what she was told and just handed over the keys.

Rte. 202 lobby is too little, too late now It is with a wry smile that I begin to digest what promises to be an avalanche of dialogue on the proposed construction of Route 202 from Montgomeryville to Buckingham ("Group lobbies against Rte. 202 bypass plan," April 23). Where have these opponents been for the last 15 years as the small town charms (light traffic, easy parking in Doylestown Borough, plenty of open space, etc.) have disappeared in a massive influx of people to Central Bucks?

Ashok Soni laments when he sees one of his Hindu friends' children marry a Christian. He accepts religious beliefs outside of the traditionally flexible Hindu faith, but Soni said too many U.S.-born children of Indian families slip away from their religious roots and develop a nonchalant attitude toward their parents' homeland. So when he sat down with friends more than two years ago to create suburban Philadelphia's second Hindu temple, he had a definite objective: To continue South Asians' assimilation in Southeastern Pennsylvania while keeping culture and Hindu beliefs alive.
