In Brooklawn, four newcomers are running for two seats on the Borough Council, and Mayor Marion Conover is unopposed in her re-election bid. Conover, a Republican, has been mayor for five years and was a council member from 1973 to 1981. She works as a secretary for the Camden County Board of Elections. Conover was president of the local board of health for 10 years and ran unsuccessfully for the state Assembly in 1984. Two three-year council seats and one unexpired two-year term are up for grabs this year.

It may well be that the Upper Darby Royals will show a different look this season than last year's size-oriented team. Gone are 6-footers Kevin Thomas, Todd Rucci and Mike Mancini from last year's 15-11 squad. That means coach Paul Tallant will go with a smaller but quicker lineup with emphasis on a more aggressive defensive unit to compete with the elite in the Central League. Tallant, however, will field a team made up of nine seniors and three juniors who he feels should provide the necessary leadership for a team in transition.

Although Burlington City basketball coach Bob Williams will have a youthful team to guide this season, he possesses plenty of offensive weapons. Can the Blue Devils parlay that talent into a second straight Burlington County Freedom Division championship? Only time will tell, Williams said. "We won't expect miracles at the start of the season because these are young players, but we're fully capable of having a winning season after they've been in game situations," Williams said.

A team of newcomers calling for better control over municipal spending defeated two longtime incumbents and another township official last night to win three seats on the Evesham Council. Incumbents also lost nonpartisan races in Mount Ephraim and Haddon Township. Lawyer Augustus F. Tamburro won a four-year term as Evesham mayor by defeating 12-year incumbent Raymond Brosel Jr. by a nearly 2-1 ratio. Municipal Utilities Authority Commissioner Jerry Albrecht and planning board member Judith C. Hamilton defeated eight-year Councilman Richard Brown and planning board Chairman Frank Froio to claim two four-year seats on the five- member council.

The Navy pilot from New Orleans didn't know the community organizer from Boston, who didn't know the retail strategist from Fort Worth, who didn't know the urban planner from Chester County, who didn't know the writer from Miami, who didn't know the artist from Bucks County. But in June last year, they found themselves at the Old Brick Church in Fishtown with a shared purpose: getting a group called Neighbors Allied for the Best Riverfront off the ground. Ever since, these organizers have been vocal opponents of building casinos along the Delaware River.

Fiery rhetoric was chilled by political reality at the Abington school board this week, when a trio of self-declared reformers learned fast that they lacked the votes to start making a difference. The newcomers found themselves on the losing end of 5-4 votes Monday for the election of a board president and vice president. The board, in what was widely regarded as an initial test of the newcomers' power, re-elected Melvin K. McMaster, a 13-year board member, to his third term as president, and Elaine Shay, in her sixth year, as vice president.

In a year when taxes, development and traffic are of primary concern, two longtime Republican supervisors will defend their titles against two Democratic newcomers in November. James Kinney and Peter Palestina, both of whom were endorsed by the township's Republican Party, won, and novice Spencer Snyderman lost in Tuesday's primary election. Palestina, an insurance broker, had the highest number of votes for one of the at-large nominations. Palestina has been a township supervisor for 12 years and was on the Planning Commission four years.

Basketball season is upon us, so here is a look at six of the top women's teams in Philadelphia.   St. Joseph's The Hawks went 22-11 last season and advanced to the WNIT. The trademark is still defense, so don't worry that senior Ashley Prim is the leading returning scorer with an average of 9.7 points per game. Junior Erin Shields, an Archbishop Carroll graduate, is a deadly three-point shooter. Newcomers are expected to help the cause, particularly Cardinal O'Hara graduate Natasha Cloud, who transferred after a year at Maryland; Ciara Andrews from Cheltenham High; Jordan Strode from Harrisburg, N.C.; and Sarah Fairbanks from Elizabethtown, Pa. Coach Cindy Griffin's squad opens play Sunday by hosting three-time Ivy League champion Princeton.

When the new Legislature is sworn in tomorrow, Democrats will have control of the Governor's Office and both houses for the first time in more than a decade. The Democratic coup was advanced by two newcomers from the Fourth District in South Jersey: Fred Madden in the Senate and David Mayer in the Assembly. Madden, a veteran state trooper from Washington Township, was one of only two Senate candidates who ousted veteran politicians. His camp spent a record $4.4 million to defeat Republican Sen. George Geist, who will step down today after 12 years in the Legislature.

Everyone admits it's going to be a good, close race. Five four-year seats on the Morrisville Borough school board are up for grabs in this small school district. But instead of a herd of candidates trampling one another for a chance to wear the roses in the winner's circle, the field has been split into two distinct packs: the incumbents vs. the newcomers. The newcomers came out a neck ahead after the May primary, when they swept the coveted Democratic ticket, forcing the incumbents to run as Republicans.

If history and logic are indicators, a Delaware County Republican with decades of political experience and a mammoth campaign-funding advantage should have no problem defeating a Democratic newcomer in Tuesday's election. But that is not stopping Marty Molloy. In fact, not much has stopped the 39-year-old Wallingford Democrat in his foray into politics while running against State Rep. Tom Killion in Tuesday's special election for the vacant Ninth Senate District seat, long held by former GOP Senate Majority Leader Dominic F. Pileggi.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - This is Bryson DeChambeau's party. We're all invited. The 80th Masters is the 30th anniversary of Jack Nicklaus' last major championship win. It is the first defense of a major for young star Jordan Spieth. It would complete the career Grand Slam for Rory McIlroy, and it would cement new world No. 1 Jason Day atop the rankings for several weeks. Sure, all of that matters. But as long as DeChambeau is around, Augusta National Golf Club is hosting his coming-out party.

"KUNG FU PANDA 3" chopped all competitors down to size this past weekend, dominating the North American box office with a respectable $41 million, according to Rentrak estimates. The animated sequel fared much better than the weekend's other new openers: "The Finest Hours" debuted in fourth place with $10.3 million, "Fifty Shades of Black" earned a modest $6.2 million, "Jane Got a Gun" brought in only $803,000. Someone's getting a write-off. "The Revenant" and "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" took second and third place with $12.4 million and $10.8 million, respectively.

Unlike Allen Iverson, Temple women's basketball coach Tonya Cardoza loves to talk about practice. "Who starts, who plays, it's all based on practice," Cardoza explained last Saturday after Temple surged from a third-quarter tie to beat Division II Bloomfield in a preseason game at McGonigle Hall. She can now count on help to replace players not getting the job done. The Owls' nongame activities offer more bodies to compete for playing time than a year ago, when an undermanned roster consisted of a bunch of youngsters around lone senior Tyonna Williams, now on the coaching staff as a special assistant to Cardoza.

Andy's Chicken is no fast-food joint. Despite the nonstop buzz behind the counter of its no-frills take-out corner, this red-hot Fishtown newcomer may, in fact, be the slowest Korean fried chicken take-out operation in the city, obliging a call-ahead order at least a half-hour in advance, and, if my experience was typical, an extra 15 minutes of patience on top of that. But it's worth the logistical challenge. Because Andy's is easily one of the best in this recent wave of new K.F.C.

MIAMI - Darnell Sweeney was getting ready to lead off and play center field in Oklahoma City on Wednesday night when he learned he was scratched from the lineup of the Dodgers' triple-A club. It didn't take much more than a scroll through Twitter to learn the reason. Sweeney's manager later officially alerted him that he had been traded to the Phillies. If that wasn't enough news, Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. called 20 minutes later and told Sweeney he was getting his first major-league promotion.

Two Philadelphia City Council incumbents, including 15-year veteran W. Wilson Goode Jr., failed to win the Democratic Party's endorsement Tuesday, guaranteeing there will be four new members on the 17-seat legislative body next year. Goode and Councilman Ed Neilson, both at-large members, were outpolled by three newcomers - Derek Green, former aide to retiring Councilwoman Marian B. Tasco; Allan Domb, a developer known as the city's "condo king"; and education activist Helen Gym - who were seeking to become among the party's five at-large nominees.

City Commissioner Anthony Clark and newcomer Lisa Deeley won the Democratic primary for the commissioners race. Republican incumbent Al Schmidt did not have any challengers, so he, too, will move on to the November ballot. All three commissioner seats were on the ballot, with one seat reserved for the minority party. However, Democratic incumbent Stephanie Singer was knocked off the ballot through petition challenges. The commissioners are in charge of overseeing elections and voter registration.

OH MY, my head is spinning. It's almost impossible to keep up with Chip Kelly and his wheeling and dealing. Apparently, he is moving as fast as the Eagles' general manager as his offense does on the field. Though it's almost too hard to keep up with, it certainly is exciting. Think about this, in a 10-day span, the Eagles' No. 1 running back was LeSean McCoy, Frank Gore, Darren Sproles, Ryan Mathews, and then, finally, DeMarco Murray. Even with McCoy and Gore not on the team, the Eagles have four quality running backs, but still no deep-threat wide receiver.
