Jaimee Drakewood hurried in from the rain, eager to get to her final appointment at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Ever since her birth 23 years ago, a team of researchers has been tracking every aspect of her development - gauging her progress as an infant, measuring her IQ as a preschooler, even peering into her adolescent brain using an MRI machine. Now, after nearly a quarter century, the federally funded study was ending, and the question the researchers had been asking was answered.

CLEVELAND - When it comes to Donald Trump, Scott Wagner's seen the light - in the mirror. You know how lots of Republican candidates and incumbents duck The Donald or shy away or work up weasel words such as, well, I support the ticket? And how they do so in order to keep some distance twixt themselves and the nutsy things Trump's inclined to say? (I'm looking at you, Pat Toomey, Pat Meehan, Brian Fitzpatrick.) Heck, House Speaker Paul Ryan spoke to Pennsylvania's convention delegates on Monday for, as a colleague noted, 13 minutes before even mentioning Trump's name.

Danielle Arnold-Schwartz, a teacher in the Lower Merion School District, considers education her calling. Yet, when her 16-year-old daughter began mulling the same career path, she advised her to choose a second major, just in case. The profession, Arnold-Schwartz warned, has been undermined by skin-and-bones school budgets, testing overkill, increasingly rigorous teacher evaluations, and dimming public respect, among a raft of relatively recent negatives. "I don't think you'll find this as satisfying as you think," she told her daughter.

WASHINGTON - Big money is pouring into the Pennsylvania race for U.S. Senate. The conservative Freedom Partners Action Fund early last week launched a new television ad, backed by $2 million, accusing Democrat Katie McGinty of enriching herself at the public's expense and amplifying a key talking point from her Republican opponent, Sen. Pat Toomey. The Democratic Senate Majority PAC hit back Thursday, announcing $1 million worth of ads painting Toomey as a friend of the National Rifle Association.

Robert Rohanna fired a 4-under-par 68 and won the Pennsylvania Open for the second time, capturing a 6-stroke victory Wednesday at the Club at Nevillewood in Western Pennsylvania. Rohanna, a former Penn State player who won the Open in 2010 at Applebrook Golf Club in Malvern, used an eagle at the par-5 third hole to kick-start his round and was never threatened in posting a 54-hole score of 12-under 204. He also carded five birdies. Four players tied for second at 210, including first-round leader Cole Willcox of Malvern, who closed with a 70. Mike Van Sickle of McKees Rocks shot the day's best round, a 66, to join David Denlinger of Lancaster (70)

HUNTINGDON COUNTY, Pa. - The fallen pines and oaks lie in jumbled heaps as though a tornado ripped up the forest. But it was no force of nature that cut a 50-foot-wide gash through the Gerhart family's property four months ago. Over the family's protests, timber crews hired by Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. cut down trees on three of the Gerharts' 27 acres. Protected by sheriff's deputies, the loggers came bearing a court order to clear a path for the Mariner East 2 pipeline project, a 350-mile conduit to deliver natural gas liquids such as propane to a terminal south of Philadelphia.

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. - As criticism continued over his slams against the parents of a Muslim U.S. soldier killed in Iraq, Donald Trump returned to Pennsylvania on Monday night, calling Hillary Clinton "the devil" and predicting he will be the first Republican presidential nominee in a generation to win the state. "My guys are so sure of it," he said, drawing cheers from the crowd in the Cumberland Valley High School gymnasium. "It's going to happen. " Trump avoided addressing the public spat with the parents of Capt.

Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine's presidential campaign bus tour rolled into rural Western Pennsylvania on Saturday to talk about jobs and manufacturing - and begin a fight for votes from the state's white, working-class voters that Donald Trump hopes to win over in November. "We are visiting places that prove what Americans can do," Clinton said at a wire factory in Johnstown. "We are the most productive, competitive workers in the world. We just need to give our people the chance to succeed.

After two sharply different conventions, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump agree on this: They're both gunning for Pennsylvania. While Republicans have often talked about reclaiming the state's 20 electoral votes - without really coming close - independent analysts and even some Democrats say this year could make for a real battle. "We think Pennsylvania is going to be a close race," said Marlon Marshall, who is leading Clinton's state campaigns. Trump's appeal to working-class white voters - the kind who work in factories or on construction crews, as former Gov. Ed Rendell put it last week - is resonating, and could change the calculus in a state that Republicans haven't won in any presidential race since 1988.

After 43 years in prison for a West Chester purse-snatching that became a murder when the victim fell and died from the injuries, Earl Rice Jr., 60, finally had the chance to go before the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole. The board's decision last week: 43 years was long enough for a crime committed when Rice was just 17. Rice and three other men, including two from Philadelphia, were approved for parole, making them the first in Pennsylvania convicted of first- or second-degree murder ever to be granted parole.
