LA SALLE University officials announced they will consider laypersons for the president's job for the first time in the school's 150-year history. The board of trustees recently approved changes to the university's bylaws allowing for greater flexibility as it seeks to replace Brother Michael J. McGinniss, who will step down in May after 15 years as president. Board Chairman William Sautter said yesterday the declining number of candidates from the Christian Brothers religious order made the change necessary.

DOVER, Del. - State lawmakers are considering a bill requiring government officials to avoid using certain language when referring to people with disabilities. The bill would require that new and revised laws, rules, regulations, charters and any government publications avoid terms such "mentally ill," "retarded," and "learning-disabled. " The bill also would prohibit officials from equating disabled people with their conditions by using such terms as "epileptics" and "quadriplegics.

Rev. J. Brian Bransfield is assistant professor of moral theology at Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary in Wynnewood The recent instruction issued by the Vatican's Congregation for Catholic Education, dealing with the formation of priests, is first and foremost pastoral in nature. The document reflects profound sensitivity to the struggle of persons who are same-sex attracted and likewise provides prudent guidance in the sacred duty of forming men for the priesthood as candidates who can readily present themselves, unhindered by extreme circumstances, for the total gift of self, which the church and the world so desperately need.

Almost a decade ago, the state Supreme Court ruled that it was unconstitutional for Pennsylvania to ban some former convicts from ever working inside a nursing home or similar personal-care facility.   But state officials have ignored the ruling and kept the ban in effect. Bills to strike a balance between protecting patients and giving former prisoners a chance to work have gone nowhere. The last bill, sponsored by Sen. Patricia Vance (R., Cumberland) died three years ago, but it should be revived.

WHY SHOULD RACE MATTER FOR PHILLIES? In his letter (July 10), Jim O'Connor was doing so well with his dissection of the Phillies - concise, insightful and eloquent comments - until he asked: "Why isn't the farm system producing any black stars?" Who cares what color a person is if he can help the team? If we cared less about the emperor's clothes and more about the person before us, we would have not only a better baseball team, but a much better world.

WHEN I READ the article in the Daily News regarding pastor Johnson's objections to Meek Mill's lyrics in his song "Amen" (July 10), I agreed for the most part with pastor Johnson. However, after listening to a heated debate between the two on 107.9 radio, my support was not so clear. As a Christian, I was appalled by the lyrics. I believe there needs to be respect for God and the church. And while there are many instances of "Christians' behaving badly," it still doesn't negate the reverence and respect we give God. As Christians we believe that while we are not perfect, we serve a perfect God. However, as Christians, we must also remember to be mindful of our approach in admonishing persons we feel have been offensive to God and the church.

'Iceland far exceeded my expectations," I told a friend after I returned from a seven-day excursion with my family in and around Reykjavik, the world's northernmost city. My expectations were pretty low. My husband, a geologist, spent months researching this vacation and effervescing about volcanoes, lava fields, glaciers, and tectonic wonders. I spent an equal amount of time dreading those things. I worried the volcanoes would erupt mid-climb, lava fields would prove tiresome, and a place called Iceland would just be cold.

Though I am usually terrified to fly, let alone across the ocean amid a time of unrest (Paris was still on everyone's minds), the joy of seeing my daughter Jessica in London and plans already forming put the fear at bay, and off I went. The heart of the Christmas season and a ceremony of carols at St. Paul's Cathedral were just the prompt I needed to go. I had been there before, so Jessica, being the ultimate tour guide, had an itinerary planned with sites off the normal tourist path.

By Barry W. Lynn Imagine a candidate for public office who says he admires the teachings of Jesus Christ but writes a letter listing all of the doctrines of Christianity he doesn't accept. Among them are the resurrection, the divinity of Jesus, the Trinity, the miracles described in the New Testament, original sin, and the virgin birth. Would you vote for such a candidate? If you said no, you've just rejected Thomas Jefferson, the author of the Declaration of Independence and our third president.

HARRISBURG - At 28, Jennifer Storm came face to face with her past. She had just become executive director of the Dauphin County Victim/Witness Assistance Program, and her first case involved the rape of a 12-year-old girl. Storm herself had been raped at 12, by a 28-year-old stranger on the way to a roller rink, and suddenly she saw her ordeal in a new light. "I can't even begin to explain how much that little girl gave me," Storm, 41, said in an interview Tuesday. "I had never felt more confident in my life's mission.

After almost a decade of bohemian-inspired back-to-school fashions, this year's young trendsetters are blending classically preppy looks - appropriate plaids, pastels, and khakis - into their fringe and graphic-print-filled wardrobes. "How much longer could we send our kids to school in track pants and hoodies?" asked Lisa Lent of New York, a children's clothing buyer for Century 21. Can't say I disagree. This fall's pull toward preppy is fueled by a resurgence of Nantucket-friendly labels like Vineyard Vines, now in the business of making duds for little people, and collaborations between brands like classic J.Crew and sporty Adidas.

To help students recovering from substance abuse, the College of New Jersey last school year set aside substance-free housing exclusively for their use, expecting to create a supportive community. The response was, to put it mildly, weak: Only one student signed up, living in "Lion's House" for one semester. "We opened up the door and we thought they would come flooding in," said Christopher Freeman, who joined TCNJ last year to create and run the collegiate recovery program . After all, Freeman said, student surveys showed about 280 students on campus, 4 percent of the population, identified as being in recovery.
