With emotional speeches and supportive hugs, the Delaware Valley Vietnam Veterans opened their new Outreach Center Saturday in the Levittown Shopping Center. The new center will provide services for veterans of all eras, from help with medical and insurance claims to job training. Several years ago, veterans Al Newsham of Levittown and Jesse Hill of Bristol thought of opening a place in Bucks County where veterans could get help with problems. Their inspiration was Ed Lowry, the head of the Philadelphia Veterans Multi-Service Center, which has helped 40,000 veterans since it opened in February 1981.

Delaware County officials say they are "moving ahead on schedule" on the proposed $10 million emergency communications center. The County Council on Tuesday approved a contract for a new roof for the Watkins Building in the Fair Acres complex near Media. The work will set the stage for the $1.2 million renovation of the Watkins structure to house the new center, which will become a central communications network for most of the county's municipalities. The price tag for equipment alone is projected at $7 million to $9 million, to be financed by a bond issue and funds from the proposed 911 emergency telephone system, county officials said.

The trickle-down effect of Chester County's development has reached the driver's license photo center in West Chester, which last week moved to a new site and beginning in July will have expanded hours. For eight years the photo center had been in the Borough Hall, until its closing Dec. 31. It had been open Thursday and Friday and last year served about 200 people each day, according to Stephen Fister, state manager for the Pennsylvania Industries for the Blind and Handicapped, a nonprofit company that contracts with the state to run the 114 photo license centers in Pennsylvania.

James Bryson is a charmer. He has a laugh that is warm and fluffy like popcorn. You hear it once and you want to hear it again. He is disarmingly honest. "I concentrated too much on my social life last year," he will say. He walks out of a basketball locker room wearing a goofy hat and a wide smile and little kids who barely reach his kneecaps stick to him as if he's wearing Velcro. If you know James Bryson, you will like him. Unless, maybe, you were his coach for the last two years.

Chester County yesterday cleared a legal hurdle in its plans to build a $48 million county services center in West Goshen Township when a judge refused to stop the county Board of Commissioners from awarding the first contract for the project. John L. Philips, an electrical contractor, had asked Chester County Court to stop the county from making an award Tuesday for landscaping and other "site work. " Philips contended the county had violated state law by improperly lumping together, into the same bid package, the landscaping, paving, and electrical work needed to be completed before the erection of the building begins.

Abington Township may soon be a home base for one of five county centers that will process suspected drunken drivers in eastern Montgomery County. In the next two weeks, the county hopes to lease a site at 1822 Old York Rd. that formerly housed Ciliberto Tailoring. The centers were proposed two years ago, and are a joint effort of the Montgomery County Board of Commissioners, the county District Attorney's and Sheriff's Offices, and the county Police Department. If the centers are approved by the county solicitor's office, each will be staffed by two county sheriff's deputies.

Pennsylvania will open 20 centers around the state by fall to coordinate care for people addicted to opioids, the Wolf administration announced Thursday. The centers - six of them in Southeastern Pennsylvania - will not be new locations, but instead are existing organizations that will function as navigational hubs to coordinate a range of services for Medicaid patients. By integrating treatment for substance abuse, mental health, and physical health, their mission is to help ensure patients get all the types of care proven to promote recovery.

Ruth's Chris Steak House returns to Center City early next month, taking space on a revitalized stretch of Market Street just north of Rittenhouse Square. Marsha Brown is making a multimillion-dollar investment, just as she did three decades ago when she arrived from the chain's hometown, New Orleans. Back then, though, the location itself did not matter, she said. She fell hard for the Beaux Arts office tower at Broad and Spruce Streets built for the Atlantic Refining Co. The neighborhood was far from prime.
