Part of a pretrial hearing in a Norristown double-murder trial was closed to the public Tuesday after the judge determined a Department of Homeland Security agent's testimony could jeopardize agents, informants, or investigations. Special Agent Ricky A. Miller asked the judge to seal his testimony in the trial of Luckenson Desrivieres, 25, who is accused of fatally stabbing two friends in their Norristown boardinghouse in June. Desrivieres was arrested a month later by federal agents in Irvington, N.J. The hearing was to decide whether Desrivieres' confession could be used in court.

A mixed-use affordable-housing development is moving forward in Norristown despite opposition from some residents. The plan calls for 96 one- and two-bedroom apartments, as well as 5,000 square feet of retail space, at DeKalb and Airy Streets. Sixty units would be reserved for low- and moderate-income residents. The site is now a parking lot owned by Montgomery County. The county deemed it underused, and in February agreed to transfer ownership through a profit-sharing redevelopment deal.

Sophomore Lauren Weidler gave up five runs, three hits, and a walk and committed an error - all in the first inning of a nonleague game at Morrisville - but Christopher Dock coach Wayne Benner kept his pitcher in the game. He said he had no choice. "I stuck with her," said Benner, who coaches a softball team with an 11-girl roster. "I need her to pitch well and continue to pitch well. " Weidler held Morrisville to one more run over the next five innings, as Christopher Dock came back to defeat Morrisville, 18-6, Tuesday in a game stopped after six innings because of the mercy rule.

After three years at Church Farm, Howard Sellars decided to play his final season of high school basketball at Coatesville. "Coatesville is where I live," the 6-foot-1, 160-pound senior guard said. "I just wanted to come home and give the city what they haven't seen in years.
