Closing political ranks, Delaware County's Republican Party leadership has endorsed a 14-year district justice from Upper Darby and Springfield's zoning solicitor for two new Delaware County Court judgeships. Michael Ballezzi, 50, the district justice, and George A. Pagano, 45, of Springfield, beat out Richard A. Mitchell, 56, of Nether Providence, a private-practice lawyer, and Ann A. Osborne, 52, of Radnor, the county sheriff, Thursday night. Historically, endorsements by Delaware County's powerful GOP organization are tantamount to winning both the party nomination in the primary and the general election in the fall.

Mobster Vincent "Al Pajamas" Pagano cannot appeal his 1995 racketeering conviction based on ineffective counsel, a federal judge ruled yesterday. The ruling, by U.S. District Judge Ronald L. Buckwalter, was a vindication of Jeremy Gelb's representation of Pagano. Buckwalter ruled that Pagano's constitutional rights had not been violated. In a hearing last May 24, Pagano accused Gelb of failing to present exculpatory evidence during the trial or at sentencing. But Buckwalter found that Gelb "was ready, willing and able" to introduce evidence, but that neither Pagano nor his wife had made documents available regarding Pagano's whereabouts in September 1993.

The Springfield Board of Commissioners has three weeks to fill the vacant seat left by Board President George A. Pagano. Pagano, who represented the Second Ward, announced his resignation Tuesday at the commissioners meeting. He said he had bought a home in the Fifth Ward. But Pagano will not disappear from government. Just minutes after his resignation, he was appointed to fill the solicitor's seat left empty by Raymond J. Falzone, who also resigned Tuesday. "I have mixed emotions" about changing seats, Pagano said.

Your landlord won't renew your lease. You call him names, maybe under your breath, probably behind his back. Not Dean Pagano. He did it in big letters on the marquee outside his adult store, Risque Video, snuggled up to eastbound Interstate 76 in South Philadelphia. On an average weekday, 49,500 cars go that way, zipping toward the Vet or the First Union Center, to I-95 and the airport, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. And they're not going too fast to read the big letters: "Donald Tornetta of Norristown is ignorant!"

Several ward lines in Springfield Township will be shifted in a soon-to-be- completed redistricting plan. The lines will be redrawn based on 1990 U.S. Census figures that show a slight decline in population, township Solicitor George A. Pagano said last week. The biggest changes will occur in Wards 5 and 6, which have been affected most by population shifts, Pagano said. Ward 5 has about 300 people more than it should, he said, and Ward 6 has about 200 too few. "We're not going to entirely redraw the wards and change their configurations," Pagano said.

Frank Martines, reputed to be the acting underboss in the Philadelphia mob, pleaded not guilty yesterday to eight federal racketeering charges against him. Martines is charged with participation in the 1993 murders of rival mobsters Frank Baldino and Michael Ciancaglini, and with trying to kill two others. At the brief arraignment in front of U.S. Magistrate Judge Richard A. Powers 3d, Assistant U.S. Attorney Barry Gross noted for the court record that Martines is not cooperating with the government.

Springfield Township Cable TV Advisory Board members raised objections Tuesday to what they said were secret meetings between township officials and the Suburban Cable Co. to negotiate a new cable TV contract for the township. Advisory board members aired their complaints at a meeting with the township commissioners, saying they felt left out of the negotiation process. The current 15-year contract with Suburban expires in August and the township is looking for a new pact with Suburban.

INDIANAPOLIS - All Chuck Pagano asked the Indianapolis Colts to do was focus on football. Andrew Luck and Reggie Wayne did that - and a little more to honor their ailing coach. The rookie quarterback and veteran receiver connected at the most critical moments Sunday, including a 4-yard touchdown pass with 35 seconds left to complete the Colts' second-half rally and stun Green Bay, 30-27, on perhaps the most emotional day in Lucas Oil Stadium history. "I'm sure we were all lying to everybody the whole week, trying to downplay it," Luck said after throwing for a career-high 362 yards.

The Springfield Township Board of Commissioners unanimously elected George A. Pagano as the new board president at a meeting Tuesday. Anthony J. Grosso was elected vice president. Pagano praised outgoing President Bernie Stein as a "dedicated public servant" before taking the gavel. The board also voted to reappoint members of the vacancy board, golf advisory board, library board and parks board. In other business: The Board of Commissioners approved a final development plan for the Springfield Corporate Center, just north of the Springfield Mall on Route 320. The plan calls for a 100,000-square-foot office complex and parking area for the six-acre site.

THIRTY YEARS ago, a young and upcoming coach left his job as Alabama's running-backs coach to become the next football coach at Temple. After a long journey with a few speed bumps, Bruce Arians will return to the Philadelphia sideline tomorrow as head coach of the Arizona Cardinals. After the Eagles parted ways with Andy Reid, Arians - who was coming off of an 11-5 season as the offensive coordinator/interim head coach of the Indianapolis Colts - was a candidate for the vacant head-coaching position.

After four years in prison awaiting trial, Nafis Pinkney was acquitted Friday of the 2009 execution-style double murder in West Philadelphia.

Chuck Pagano beat the traffic and a blizzard into work Wednesday morning - all in an effort to beat the Texans. After spending the last three months fighting leukemia, the inspirational Colts coach arrived early at the team complex. He met briefly with his players to give them a succinct message about this week's game plan, then stepped onto the practice field for the first time since Sept. 26. While Pagano wanted to take a business-as-usual approach into his first regular workday, it certainly wasn't easy amid all the outside stuff.

INDIANAPOLIS - Chuck Pagano was so eager to get back to work Monday, he was the first one to show up at team headquarters. Long before meeting with his players, the Colts' first-year coach drove quietly into the complex, walked into the office where the lights have remained on for nearly three months, and began preparing for Sunday's game against AFC South champion Houston as if it were another day at the office. Hardly. It was the biggest milestone yet in an incredibly emotional season in which Pagano has beaten leukemia and the Colts have been a most pleasant surprise in reaching the playoffs under interim coach Bruce Arians.

Colts coach Chuck Pagano has been medically cleared to return to the team by his physician and could be back as soon as Monday. On Thursday, Larry Cripe, Pagano's doctor, told the Associated Press it's up to Pagano and the Colts to figure out when he'll be back and how much he'll do. Pagano's leukemia was diagnosed Sept. 26. Cripe said that while the cancer remains in remission, Pagano will continue to take oral medication and will be closely monitored for the next couple of years.

Looks like Andrew Luck is making the transition from college to the NFL all right. The Indianapolis Colts quarterback threw for 433 yards in Sunday's 23-20 win over the Miami Dolphins, breaking Cam Newton's year-old record for yards passing in a game by a rookie (422). Oh yeah, he also became the second rookie signal-caller in the history of the NFL to produce four 300-yard games in a season. The other guy? Somebody named Peyton Manning, who now plies his trade in Denver. Probably no coincidence that the rebuilding Colts are essentially reconstructed and a suitable topic for playoff conversation at 5-3. An added highlight: Colts coach Chuck Pagano, 52, who is battling leukemia and is scheduled to begin a second round of chemotherapy this week, was in the stadium to see Luck's feat.

He will be replaced on an interim basis by former Temple coach Bruce Arians, the offensive coordinator. "He will do fine," Arians said of Pagano, his voice cracking as he recalled his own fight with prostate cancer in 2007. "I know him. He's a fighter. He's survived tough times already in his life.

INDIANAPOLIS - It took Chuck Pagano less than 9 months to instill his fighter's mentality and hopeful spirit in the Indianapolis Colts.

He will be replaced on an interim basis by offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, who coached at Temple from 1983-88.
