Central Bucks West's Shawn Moylan hadn't lost a football game since eighth grade, and he was not giving up with his North team trailing, 15-14, late in the Bucks County North-South All-Star football game Saturday. With the seconds ticking away he frantically called for the center snap on Steve Alderfer's last-ditch 50-yard field-goal attempt. "We wanted to pull them offsides," Moylan said. "But we didn't have enough time to go through the cadence so I just said, 'Give me the ball, give me the ball.

The shoplifting suspect, running from the Macy's store at the Deptford Mall, had lost store security guards chasing him. He had managed to ditch police officers who could not chase him in cars because of the gridlocked traffic around the mall. He thought he was home free. He almost was. But then, Deptford Patrolman John Senick and Lt. Steve Moylan swooped by on 21-speed mountain bikes and pounced on the man as he was running through the parking lot of the Hechinger's store on Deptford Center Road.

A little good timing and a little good luck led to the arrest of four carjacking suspects at the Deptford Mall after an officer nearly stumbled into the middle of the crime. Lt. Steve Moylan was patrolling the Deptford Mall parking lot at 8:20 p.m. Sunday when he saw four males walking through the parking lot - just as a couple inside the mall was reporting that the four had tried to carjack them moments earlier. Three men and a 17-year-old were found hiding behind the Crossing Shopping Center, across Clements Bridge Road from the mall.

Placing six African drums and one Native American drum at the front of the music room, Jane Miluski faced the class of 12 youngsters and announced it was time to dance. "Oh, I love to dance," said Christina Hammill, 5. Christina began to spin in circles, her red and white skirt twirling above her flip-flop sandles. Robbie Caesar, 7, of Middletown Township, began beating on the tallest of the drums. "I like to drum because I like the sounds it makes," Robbie said. With a steady 1-1-2 beat on the drum established, Miluski led the children in a dance of the Zulu tribe of Africa by allowing them to move freely to the sounds of the drums.

Joe Yourshaw was 93 and in hospice care at his home in Pottsville, Schuylkill County, in February when he asked his visiting daughter for his bottle of morphine. That much appears undisputed. Now, Barbara Mancini of Philadelphia is facing prosecution for allegedly aiding her father's suicide - an allegation she denied through her lawyers. "Prosecution of Mancini is an assault on a loving daughter and a violation of a dying patient's constitutional right to pain relief," said Kathryn Tucker, a lawyer with Denver-based Compassion and Choices, an end-of-life advocacy group that is helping Mancini.

Rose Schulman, an actress, director and teacher for most of her adult life at the Hedgerow Theater in Moylan, Delaware County, died Sunday. Schulman, who was 79, suffered a heart seizure at Hedgerow House, the actors' residence on Rose Valley Road in Moylan, where she lived. According to the other residents, Schulman, the company's master acting teacher, had just sat down to dinner when she was stricken by severe chest pains. She was taken to Crozer Chester Medical Center, where she died at 8 p.m. Thus ended an association that had endured since 1932, when the then 22- year-old Schulman was selected by Hedgerow founder Jasper Deeter to join his repertory company on a part-time basis.

School closures fray Pennsport South Philadelphia's Pennsport neighborhood is one of the oldest, most historic areas of the city, home to the nation's first immigration station and the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard. It's also one of the fastest-growing neighborhoods, with more than 100 new homes due over the next year, along with another 100-plus built since 2010. Sounds great, but not when you consider that we have been abandoned by the Archdiocese of Philadelphia with the closure of two Catholic grade schools.

Engine 46, a distinctive and familiar 19th-century firehouse that survived the construction of I-95 through South Philadelphia's Pennsport neighborhood and the subsequent deindustrialization of the Delaware waterfront, is now in danger of demolition by a New York real estate developer.

Mary Mazza Duffy, 61, who stepped down just two months ago as the first female mayor of Monroe Township, died yesterday at Kennedy Memorial Hospitals-University Medical Center/Washington Township from complications related to leukemia. A Democrat and native of Media, Delaware County, Mrs. Duffy had been politically active in Gloucester County for more than 20 years. Mrs. Duffy had lost a contentious primary election in June - a battle that some say contributed to her failing health - and would have been mayor until Jan. 1 had she not stepped down early because of her illness.

At the end of World War I, Anna Howard Shaw was awarded the Distinguished Service Medal of the United States. Shaw, of Moylan, Delaware County, received the medal at age 72 and was the first living American woman to receive such an honor. The recognition was, as one historian put it, "a moment of triumph for herself and womanhood. " A reformer, minister and physician, Shaw was born in 1847 to Anglo-Scottish parents in the north of England. At age 4, she immigrated with her family to the United States.

Oh, the memories. St. James High School for Boys closed its doors five years ago. In mid-January, it will reopen after the completion of a $4.5 million conversion as St. James Place, a 190-bed assisted-care facility for senior citizens. On Tuesday, several dozen alumni and friends returned to the school, which opened in 1940 at 21st and Potter Streets and closed in 1993, the victim of falling enrollment, financial losses, and Chester's changing demographics. They came at the invitation of the building's new owner, Walter M. Strine Sr. of Commonwealth Real Estate Investors, to remember and to mourn a bit, but also to celebrate the resurrection that had taken place.
