Villa Joseph Marie coach Rich Finneyfrock clapped and smiled after his team defeated Phoenixville, 2-1, Wednesday night at Council Rock North to win its third consecutive PIAA District 1 Class AA girls' soccer title. But as the postgame ceremonies concluded and Finneyfrock had a chance to talk to his team, it became apparent that he was unimpressed with the Jems' victory. "I wasn't happy with the effort at all," Finneyfrock said. "And the girls weren't happy with the effort. " They know when they play well.

Hello there In early January 2006, Stephanie, an animator who had recently begun writing screenplays, opened the networking section of Myspace. In theory, she was looking for another writer interested in critiquing each other's work. The more boxes she checked off in the site's search engine - within 10 miles of Philadelphia, must not smoke, must also be allergic to pets, only a social drinker - the clearer it became she was looking for romance.

After three years of talks, the Phoenixville Area School District and its teachers' union have reached a tentative agreement that they hope to formalize by Sept. 30. Officials from both groups declined to discuss terms of their one-year agreement. The district's head of operations, Stan Johnson, said he believed Phoenixville's contract standoff was among the longest ever in Chester County, and both sides said they were relieved it was over. "It's an accomplishment on the part of both sides - to go through that long list of items and work toward resolving what were in some cases some pretty deep opinions and positions," he said.

If there was ever any question about the celebrity cachet of the amorphous red mass that devoured Chester County residents in the 1958 sci-fi classic The Blob, then the Phoenixville Dogwood Festival parade should leave no doubt. Former Gov. Ed Rendell was scheduled to be the grand marshal in 2003. He canceled at the last minute. So, the Blob stepped in. The two gallons of red silicone that terrified millions was carried in a can by owners Wes and Judi Shank as the Delaware County couple rode down the street in a convertible.

Merion Mercy basketball coach Rob Baxter said he is happy his team does not have to go back to Villa Joseph Marie. But it's not for a lack of success. Sophomore guard Caroline Corzel scored 17 points and knocked down a pair of three-pointers to lift Merion Mercy at Villa Joseph Marie, 43-34, Tuesday in the first round of the District 1 Class AAA playoffs. It's Merion Mercy's third victory in 15 days at Villa Joseph Marie. The Golden Bears had won a Catholic Academies regular-season game on Feb. 4 and a play-in game on Feb. 9. "It was a little bit of an advantage," Baxter said.
