Sean Moses allegedly liked to record video of girls and women at the beach and sports events. He also did it secretly in store dressing rooms and homes - even of women in bed with him, police say. Then, they add, he posted the videos on a pornographic website on which he had a following. "Despicable and offensive" is how William Colarulo, superintendent of Radnor Township police, put it. Moses, 37, of the 700 block of Broad Acres Road in Narberth, was charged Monday with multiple counts of invasion of privacy, criminal use of a communication device, trespass, and related crimes.

Narberth is a town best known for its idyllic downtown, July Fourth fireworks, and friendly neighborhoods. Recently, though, problems have intruded upon the placidity. Borough Manager William J. Martin, 65, was charged last week with DUI after a Lower Merion Township police officer noticed the car Martin was driving moving erratically along City Avenue. The arrest came just weeks after the reinstatement of a veteran officer on the six-member Narberth police force who had been fired by borough officials for exposing himself at a local bar and who acknowledged a drinking problem.

Local public-access cable TV might be falling out of favor elsewhere in the country, but four months after the station serving Lower Merion Township and Narberth went dark, three groups are vying to revive it. George Strimel, who runs the public station in neighboring Radnor Township, has offered to take over Lower Merion's operation, not to be confused with the channels that carry public meetings. The Lower Merion Historical Society also is making a pitch, as is a King of Prussia group.

A recent decision by Lower Merion to limit nonresident access to township swimming pools is cooling off the summer plans of hundreds of Narberth residents. Citing overcrowded facilities and increased demand, the Lower Merion Recreation Department notified Narberth residents last week that they would have to stay out of the water on weekends and holidays. Those peak pool-use hours will now be reserved for township residents. The decision - which officials said was an easy and sensible one for Lower Merion - has offended a number of Narberth residents and resurrected some old grudges between the two closely linked municipalities.

Lillie Johnson, 74, an elder and well-loved member of the close-knit community of Narberth, died Saturday at her home in Paoli from complications caused by a cerebral hemorrhage she suffered in late March. Ms. Johnson was known in Narberth as "Lil," and she worked the register at Ricklin's Hardware Store for almost 40 years. From that perch in the center of town, she watched several generations of Narberth residents grow up and go on to raise children of their own. For many of them, the diminutive and feisty Johnson became emblematic of the community, a true Narberth anchor.

Avi Loren Fox's entrepreneurial endeavor with a hooded scarf started where so many efforts to find oneself do - at a bar. The place: McShea's Restaurant & Bar in Narberth. The time: September 2013. Fox's dilemma: The Narberth native and 2010 Temple University graduate with a degree in environmental studies had just closed a photography business she and her brother Nikolai operated for three summers. "I decided to enter that terrifying space of taking a year without any plans," Fox recalled, citing her mother, Teresa, a meditation instructor, as the inspiration for that timeout.

Having left thriving artistic careers in Cuba, ballet dancers John White and Margarita de Saá landed in a rundown room above a Narberth movie theater. The space, in need of renovation, represented a radical change from the days when the couple danced on the world's biggest stages as part of the National Ballet of Cuba. It was in 1964 that White and de Saá gave up career, family, and, in de Saá's case, country, to flee the Fidel Castro regime. They eventually chose the tiny Montgomery County borough, 2,000 miles from Havana, as the place to start over, opening their ballet school in 1974.

They were affiliates of Lippincott Inc., solely owned by Shelley Zakroff, now Shelley Romm, until its sale in 2007.

When a boy is raised by a father who helped pay the bills with gold from people's extracted teeth and their mailed-in jewelry, chances are he's going to have a knack for recognizing value. For Michael Zakroff, being adept at Internet research also helps. He's counting on both, along with financing from father Rick, a pioneer in the cash-for-gold trade, to build his new CashinMyBag.com venture into a thriving exchange for primarily designer handbags. Jimmy Choo shoes and other pricey heels are also welcome.
