Residents say the former Rosenberger Dairy property near Nields Street and Bradford Avenue harbors a wetland. East Bradford Township officials and a developer say it does not. Whether a pond now filled with soil near the border of West Chester and East Bradford Township should be protected is in question. "We're not obstructionists," said Paul Ladd, chairman of the West End Neighbors Association, a group of about 100 residents working with some East Bradford residents to protect a quarter-acre they say is a wetland.

For the third straight month, engineers representing a developer endured this township's version of running a gantlet: facing the Board of Supervisors and residents while seeking approval to build their subdivision. Now all that they can do is to wait for a decision. During a board meeting Tuesday, Chester Valley Engineers Inc. presented sketch plans for the Charles Merriwether Subdivision, an 11-home, 84-acre development that would be bordered by the Charlestown-West Pikeland township line and Wells Road.

Two young brothers drowned yesterday in the freezing waters of a pond in Evesham Township, Burlington County, despite the rescue efforts of scuba divers and medical personnel, officials said.

Both of the boys died of drowning, said hospital spokesman Ed Kanis. They did not regain consciousness after being pulled from the pond, officials said.

A Lower Moreland housing development plan that has been subjected to a number of changes by township officials now will be required to have a fence around a 1.12-acre pond on the site. Township commissioners again reviewed plans for the 11-lot subdivision on Clearview Avenue at their Tuesday night meeting after the developer, Geftman Bros. Inc., removed two flag lots - lots connected to the street by a drive running along a property in front - from the plan. The commissioners said previously that the lots had inadequate street frontage on Clearview Avenue.

State Rep. Ellen Harley (R., Montgomery) has been fighting an unsuccessful battle to reverse a King of Prussia swim club's decision to drain and fill its colonial-era millpond. Many of the nearby residents and Martin's Dam Swim Club members fear the club would sacrifice a beautiful and historical piece of property if the pond, which dates to 1718, is filled, Harley said. The dam that holds the pond has been found unsafe by the state Department of Environmental Resources, and the club filed permit applications in August to the DER to fill the three-acre pond as a safety precaution.

A pond and fountain at Route 100 and Swedesford Road? "Why not?" asked Fairfield Place shopping center developers Eisenberg Co. of Chadds Ford. "Hmmm," replied the West Whiteland Planning Commission Monday night when reviewing the developers' revised plans for the 38-acre site. "You have to understand," said commission member Norman Thomas, "the idea of a pond (at a major intersection) is new to us. Give it a little time to sink in. " In fact, most members decided they liked the idea - if logistically feasible - to replace the soon-to-be-abandoned jughandle at that intersection.

Piranhas, the toothy flesh-eating fish, are supposed to be found in South American rivers - or movies like Piranha 3D , in theaters today. Not the pond at Horsham's Kohler Park. Wednesday afternoon, however, a six-inch fish with sizable teeth and reddish fins was caught, and reports are saying it was a piranha. Photos of it do resemble pictures of piranha. Nicholas Hinderlider, wearing a shark-jaw T-shirt, said he caught it while fishing with his dad, according to a Fox29 video.

Between goose droppings and silt, the pond at E. Carl Kohler Park in recent years had been less than hospitable and barely inhabitable for fish. "It was virtually useless," Phil Collice said Thursday, after he and other officials stocked the pond off Horsham Road, one of several steps they hope will beautify the 70-acre park. Collice is chairman of Horsham Township's Park and Recreation Board. More than 600 fish are being added to the pond. On Thursday, sunfish and catfish were released.

First there was an egg. (You've heard this one before? Oh no, you haven't heard this one before.) Sometime in the fall of 1986, deep in the Schuylkill south of Pottstown, there was an egg, a fishy little fish egg. It drifted to the edge of the river, squirmed through a mesh intended to screen out grown-up fish, and found itself in a quiet, 9.9-acre, 10-foot-deep pond. The fish egg became a fish larva. And then it became a fish. And one night, it heard about this great singles bar in the pond, waltzed in and met up with this - like, you know - really cute fish.

A manmade pond has become a source of contention for two West Bradford neighbors. Ann Hubbard of 413 N. Wawaset Rd. told the Board of Supervisors at their Tuesday meeting that over the Fourth of July weekend last year, Robert Ferrier, her neighbor, started construction of a pond. It is on a section of his 4-acre property that is on the side of a stream that the two property owners share, she said. Hubbard told the board that Ferrier did not have a building permit or approval from the state Department of Environmental Resources or a variance from the township Zoning Hearing Board to build the pond within 10 feet of the adjacent property owner's line, as is required by township ordinance.

TIGER WOODS had the most memorable last-place finish in the history of golf yesterday. Woods, who is reinventing his swing, shot an 85 at the Memorial in Dublin, Ohio, on Saturday, his worst single-day score in 20 years on the PGA Tour. He followed that with a 2-over-par 74 yesterday to finish a career-worst 14-over-par 302, his highest score ever in a 72-hole tournament. That puts him on par with Roy McAvoy, the fictional golfer played by Kevin Costner in the film "Tin Cup" for unforgettable closing rounds.

Before Maxine Gowen left the pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline in 2007, she was one of 103,000 employees in the company, and one of her jobs was to scout for small companies doing interesting research that might lead to new drugs and, perhaps, a corporate takeover. "That really opened my eyes to the activity, drug discovery, and development that was going on outside big companies," Gowen said. "At the time, big companies felt they were doing the most important work. " Gowen left because she had a chance to not just lead, but also to help create, one of those tiny companies doing interesting research that she hoped would lead to new drugs.

Edward W. Tawyea spent more than 20 years in the Mount Airy section of Philadelphia nurturing a hillside garden with seven tiers. "Every one was its own little room," he says. Three years ago, in search of more city in the city, he moved to a circa 1827 Society Hill rowhouse. No tiers there, and not as much room, but lots of amenities: A walled garden 30 by 30 feet square, a small pond and basalt column fountain, one curvy raised bed, star magnolia and crape myrtle trees, and Tawyea's singular sensation: a green wall he built himself.

Louis Roselli was plugging in his GPS in the parking lot of the Absecon Home Depot when his wife started screaming. He turned to see a car veer off Route 30 and into a retention pond on the side of the road. The plume of water the car sent up when it hit the pond was "higher than a telephone pole," he said. Roselli, 58, started his car and raced toward the pond. Four wheels pointed toward the sky. A young man surfaced, gasping, and yelled that three others were trapped in the car. "My heart just sank, like, 'No, don't do this to me,' " Roselli said.

MANILA, Philippines - A remote southern Philippine town has gone into mourning over the death of the world's largest saltwater crocodile in captivity, even though it was suspected of killing people. Bunawan town plans to preserve the remains of the 1-ton crocodile, named Lolong, in a museum to keep tourists coming and stop the community from slipping back into obscurity, the mayor said Monday. Lolong was declared dead Sunday after being found floating on its back with a bloated stomach in a pond in an ecotourism park that had begun to draw tourists, revenue and development because of the immense reptile, Mayor Edwin Cox Elorde said.

In the mid-2000s, George and Melissa Fisher, a handsome young couple with two school-age children, one large vivacious dog, and enough stuff to fill a house nearly twice the size of their Brookhaven split-level, decided that the split-level could hold no more. So they agreed to sell and find space that could accommodate all. Location was essential: Their children's education depended on it. Lot size also was important: George Fisher, a residential builder, wanted to make sure that whatever house came with the lot could grow as the family's needs dictated.
