The Berwick community has lost its beloved football coach. George Curry, who guided the Northeastern Pennsylvania school to six PIAA Class 3A state championships, died Friday at 71. He had ALS, Lou Gehrig's disease, which had been diagnosed midway through last season. An undersize center and linebacker at Temple in the mid-1960s, Curry compiled a 455-102-5 record (.817 winning percentage) at three schools. He is the state's all-time winningest coach and ranks No. 5 in the nation.

I awoke Tuesday morning to discover that I was the top story in the Inquirer. Not me, individually, and given the headline, "GOP gains as Pa. voters switch," I would be lying if I described this self-selected collective of Pennsylvanians who, since the first of January, have switched their political party affiliation, as "we" or "us. " But I'm one of them, may the Lord have mercy. Across the state more than 85,000 Democrats switched their election-night map party affiliation color from cool blue to rage red in time to vote in the April 26 primary.

CAMP HILL - At his first campaign stop in Pennsylvania on Friday, Sen. Ted Cruz talked jobs, freedom, and national security, easily winning over a crowd of conservative state Republicans who whooped, hollered, and swarmed around him for selfies and autographs. Only hours earlier, the same crowd gave Gov. John Kasich a decidedly more subdued reception, as he spoke about the need to bolster the economy, make college more affordable, and fight terrorism - not through discriminating against certain groups, but by building coalitions to root out extremism.

GOVERNMENT ISN'T sport, but that doesn't stop us for treating it like one. The headlines last week that followed Gov. Wolf's decision on this year's state budget were the kind you usually find over a story about a hockey game, with phrases like "Wolf caves" and "Gov. loses to Republicans" and "Gov. folds. " What Wolf did after a 270-day standoff with the Republicans who control the legislature was to allow a House-passed version of this year's state budget to become law without his signature.

Player of the year: Alisha Kebbe, Neumann-Goretti, Sr. Off the court, Alisha Kebbe is shy, quick with a kind smile that consumes her entire face, and not the type that offers to talk about herself. She's soft-spoken and humble - aware of her impact on the Neumann-Goretti program - but you'll have to pry it out of her if you want details. On the court, you won't see that Kebbe. No, on the court the 5-foot-10 senior is tenacious, physical, fiercely competitive, and a relentless hustler.

The Hollywood Reporter reports that Georgia's governor Nathan Deal has been sent a religious liberty bill by the state legislature which some claim would legalize anti-gay discrimination.

ISSUE | PA. SUPREME COURT Eakin puts himself above the rules Once again, Pennsylvania stands disgraced on the national stage, and it is again through the actions of a state Supreme Court justice, the "Honorable" J. Michael Eakin. Rather than resign after it was revealed that he had exchanged coarse, crude, and profane emails designed to denigrate women, minorities, and homosexuals, Eakin tried to hang on to his position. There should be no doubt that he ultimately left the court because he concluded that continuing the fight was futile and that he saw that his pension was at risk if he were to fight on and lose.
