The five-member Newtown Township Zoning Hearing Board has granted, with conditions, a special exception to Pizza Hut Inc. for a take out/delivery operation at 33 S. Newtown Rd. The hearing on the request was continued from Sept. 21, when the board, concerned about traffic, safety and parking, asked for clarification on several issues. The conditional approval was unanimous. Although the board continued to express concern about increased traffic density on Route 252 during the operation's peak hours on Friday nights, it granted the special exception with the following conditions: That lighted entrance and exit signs be installed.

Fort Washington resident Sharon Ashley knew what was happening, but there was nothing she could do except watch as a car plowed into the Pizza Hut on Bethlehem Pike in Flourtown about 7:40 p.m. Friday. "We would have been out of there in seconds," Ashley recalled Tuesday. "We were just putting the tip on the table. " But, as fate would have it, she and her three sons, Steven, 11; Daniel, 9, and Jonathon, 7, were still at the table when Francis William Ganzel, 78, got his foot stuck on the accelerator and came speeding over from Roy Rogers into the side wall of the Pizza Hut, at 835 Bethlehem Pike.

Wawa knows that man does not live by hoagies alone. Sometimes, man craves a breakfast burrito or pan pizza. Accordingly, the locally based convenience-store chain has hooked up with PepsiCo Inc., the junk-food giant, to sell Taco Bell and Pizza Hut fast food through several Wawa stores. A prototype "food court" opened yesterday at the Wawa at 1666 S. Delaware Ave., recently remodeled and expanded to include the new pizza and Mexican food-service counters. Signs for the Pizza Hut and Taco Bell concessions went up on the store's walls last week, and right away Judi Bernardi, the store's supervisor, knew Wawa was onto something big. "People were grabbing me in the parking lot: 'When are we gonna get the tacos?

TRAVEL-phobic squares might try to convince you that Pennsylvania Route 63, the unassuming stretch of state highway that runs east-west between Green Lane, Montgomery County, and Bensalem, Bucks County, is just a street. Don't believe them. Though it doesn't resemble any international jet runway you've seen before, that's what it is. In fact, along a certain three-mile stretch of it in Montgomery County, an intrepid motorist (or super-intrepid pedestrian) could span multiple regions of the globe in the time it takes to shuffle through a Pennsylvania Turnpike tollbooth.

A pizza parlor isn't a pizza parlor, at least not when it operates a takeout business under the red-tiled roof of Pizza Hut of America. In that case, according to Pizza Hut attorney Jerald Batoff, it's a bakery. Arguing his case to the city's Zoning Board of Adjustment last week, Batoff contended that the Department of Licenses & Inspections erred in classifying a Pizza Hut outlet. The department's mislabeling forced his appeal for a zoning variance, he said. Pizza Hut's takeout centers are not "takeout restaurants," he said at the session Thursday in City Hall Annex.

Since mid-August, police say, an armed robber has targeted a string of convenience stores, bars, and other businesses in Northeast Philadelphia - 14 stickups in just under two months. The heists are strikingly similar, police say. In almost every one, a man walks into a store, brandishes a silver semiautomatic handgun, demands money, and quickly leaves with the cash. In the beginning, he covered his face with a bandanna, but he recently switched to a black, hooded floor-length cloak - a "Grim Reaper robe," Lt. Dennis Rosenbaum of Northeast Detectives called it - and a black scarf covering his face.

WEST CHESTER The West Chester University freshman who made the shot of a lifetime during a halftime challenge Saturday - but lost out on the cash prize because it took him two tries - has $10,000 headed his way. From Pizza Hut. "[We] know greatness when we see it," Pizza Hut's official Twitter page wrote to Jack Lavery on Tuesday afternoon. "We have a check for $10K and free pizza for a year for you. What say you? #PayJackLavs" Lavery, an 18-year-old from Horsham whose story erupted on social media and radio talk shows, was still reeling from the news a few hours later and said he was humbled by the gesture.

A bloodstained wallet left at a robbery scene in Lawnside on Sunday helped lead authorities to a 17-year-old boy charged in the baseball-bat beating and holdup of a pizza deliveryman, according to Camden County authorities. County prosecutors told a judge Friday that the wallet, with the defendant's pay stub inside, was covered with blood. They said that the order from a Pizza Hut in Magnolia was traced to a phone belonging to the Somerdale boy's foster mother, and that when the boy was arrested his clothes appeared to be stained by blood.

To: Jensen, Mike; Salisbury, James T. Subject: Draft day The Sixers reverted to their old logo during draft week. Guess the throwback theme means we can expect draft choices of the Al Henry, Shawn Bradley, Shaler Halimon ilk. By the way, Cohen and Al Henry went to Wisconsin together. In fact, I think Henry once spilled some Russian dressing on Cohen's letter-sweater.   So on Sixers retro night, do we now get last year's uniforms? Unless Andre Miller is giving Ed Stefanski signals that he isn't offering the rest of the world, this draft is obvious - Ty Lawson.
