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.

It was a half hour after 76ers' practice had formally ended yesterday, but Mike Gminski was still on the court at St. Joseph's, listening intently to assistant coach Fred Carter and working on his pivot moves. Most of the other Sixers had wandered off one by one to shower, change and head out into the foggy, gray day of rest, all except Charles Barkley. Barkley sat on the sideline, feet propped up and a half-smile on his face as he watched Gminski stop, turn, shoot; stop, turn shoot.

A BRIGHT LIGHT went out Monday with the death of Flyers founder and Comcast Spectacor chairman Ed Snider. Last year, I had the privilege of sitting next to Ed during a Flyers game at the Wells Fargo Center while he patiently explained the rules of hockey to me.

After a long hearing that included testimony from some of the 100 residents in attendance, the commission unanimously endorsed the zoning changes the developer will need to build the shopping center and luxury apartment complex.

When the Borough of West Chester wanted to set up a program for local leaders, Mayor Carolyn Comitta's first thought was that she might need to go to Philadelphia to find the expertise West Chester needed. Then the mayor realized she should do what she often tells others to do: try West Chester University. Soon a faculty member from the Center for Contemplative Studies was leading a three-month program in stress reduction for community leaders. And because he used the project as a research study, it came at no charge to the borough, Comitta said.

Ironically, the 160-year-old social service agency Jewish Family and Children's Service of Greater Philadelphia at times has been without a home in a demographic hotspot. The agency, which started out as a Jewish orphanage, occasionally had no office on the Main Line, a longtime hub of a Jewish community that is one of the fastest-growing in the nation. So the organization that serves more than 15,000 people a year implemented a strategic plan to expand and found the perfect spot: a Bala Cynwyd office building that once belonged to a titan of area philanthropy.
