Two facts stand out about the constituency that has rallied to Donald Trump. His supporters are angry, and they come overwhelmingly from the less affluent reaches of the Republican Party. Ohio Gov. John Kasich is betting on the aspirations of these voters over their anger, and it's just possible that he's on to something his opponents are missing. For the angry vote, there is a lot of competition. The main dynamic of last Thursday's Republican debate was the clawing and jabbing between Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and Trump.

BEFORE LAST week, Temple football had produced four All-Americas, each of whom played between 1970 and 1986. None were defensive players. One, offensive lineman Bill Singletary, had his number (64) retired. Another, quarterback Steve Joachim, won the Maxwell Award. Running back Paul Palmer finished runner-up for the Heisman Trophy. Now, senior linebacker Tyler Matakevich has gone past all of them as the most celebrated Owl ever to put on a helmet. And it might not even be close.

The Willingboro convenience store worker fatally shot during a robbery Wednesday had come to America several years ago for better opportunities, and was sending money back to his family in Ghana, the store's owner said Friday. Matthew Mwinsori, 32, of Willingboro, was shot around 8:20 p.m. outside the Quick N Go in the 100 block of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. Investigators on Friday were still looking for the shooter, who was seen entering the store on surveillance video. Sunny Singh, owner of the store, said Mwinsori had worked there and at a gas station Singh owns for almost a year, and that Mwinsori was closing out when the robbery occurred.

The winter holidays - starting with Thanksgiving this week - can be much more than a time for families to gather and celebrate. Mike Newell, a certified critical care nurse and case manager, says the visit to Grandma can also be an excellent time to assess how she is faring and consider whether you need to take extra steps to care for her. Newell is founder of Lifespan Care Management in Haddonfield. The company ( www.lifespancm.com ) offers health coordination and advocacy services for individuals and families.

Darren Sproles has spent his career watching players who were bigger or not as talented pass him over. The Eagles went out and signed two running backs this offseason that Chip Kelly hailed partly because of their size, and then slotted them ahead of Sproles despite his rushing production in 2014. After Kelly signed DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews in March, he said that he planned to utilize Sproles more in the passing game. While his catches per game have increased, his yards per catch have dropped.

Gov. Christie used what screen time he had during Wednesday's Republican presidential debate to press some of his biggest talking points: his willingness to overhaul Social Security and Medicare, and his law-enforcer message. But his other focus appeared to be Hillary Rodham Clinton, as he repeatedly used his opportunities - which were sparse, until he began interjecting late in the two-hour CNBC debate - to draw contrasts with the former secretary of state, who is the front-runner in the Democratic race.

Three hundred eleven years ago, the last time Pennsylvania's highest court had three vacancies, their replacements were up to the royal governor and, by extension, the queen. The three court vacancies to be filled on Nov. 3, two of them due to scandal, don't reflect the best work of the democracy that determines the composition of today's state Supreme Court. Dramatic reform, not to say another revolution, is in order. Fortunately, Pennsylvanians have the power to reshape the court this time, as well as a field of promising candidates to do so. How to retrieve a high court from a low point?

It's not the role James Franklin was hired for, being the underdog, but it's the one he has this week, and one Penn State's coach is familiar with and even thrived in at his previous stop. Back in the preseason, you looked at Penn State's schedule and put the Nittany Lions down for 6-0 right now. It doesn't really matter what Franklin says after any game, at 5-1 his team is behind schedule. There's a chance, of course, to immediately turn that around. Nobody realistically had the Nits at 7-0 after the Ohio State game.

Rashon Lusane has strong ties to Norristown High School. His father, Rod, and brother, Rasheed, played football and wrestled for the Eagles. Rashon played the same sports as a freshman and sophomore at Norristown before transferring to Malvern Prep. "The opportunity presented itself," he said. "Nothing against Norristown, but I would have been a fool not to take advantage of it. " It was an opportunity that Lusane created. After falling short of the required entrance-exam grade for Malvern as an eighth-grader at Eisenhower Middle School, he excelled in the classroom at Norristown, with a 3.8 grade-point average, and passed on his second try. "Academically, going from Norristown to Malvern, was like night and day," Lusane said.
