"I thought that maybe I'd move up to a state office one day," said Trabosh, 44. Despite the Democrat's nearly two decades in municipal government, Trabosh said he was looking forward to his days on the bench. "I'm excited about becoming a municipal judge.

Like Cookie Rojas in the 1960s, Kevin Sefcik has quietly become the Phillies' premier utility player. Not only can he play three infield positions and all three outfield spots, he now hopes to add another position to his resume: catcher. Sefcik, 27, will report to the Florida Instructional League after the season and will play seven positions, including catcher. "It's not like I'm trying to become Bob Boone, but it'll give them [the Phillies] another option if they want to pinch-run for the catcher late in the game," Sefcik said.

The Springfield Township Police Department will make the best of a recent decision by township officials to cut two positions from the 33-member force, Deputy Chief Robert Dukes says. "We will try to operate as efficiently and as responsively as we have in the past," Dukes said. "We may have to cut back on some non-essential services. " Two vacancies exist in the Police Department - a patrol officer's position and a lieutenant's position - and two more are expected next year.

Chester County's chief administrative officer, Mark Rupsis, 58, of Downingtown, has been promoted to chief operating officer, the Chester County commissioners announced Tuesday. Although the new title boosts the 34-year county employee's annual salary from $134,842 to $150,000, the promotion will save the county money, officials said. Since the beginning of the year, Rupsis had been doing his job as well as performing the duties of Evelyn Walker, the county's former chief management officer, who earned $109,942 a year; the two positions will be combined.

In response to cutbacks among companies that buy its services and growing demands for cost control, the region's largest private health insurer has begun notifying employees that it is eliminating some jobs. Beginning about two weeks ago, Independence Blue Cross told workers that 100 to 125 positions in two divisions will be dropped by June, said spokeswoman Liz Williams. Affected employees can apply for other open jobs, so it is unknown how many will be out of work. She said 10 to 12 divisions were still studying how to improve "productivity and efficiency.

More than 70 holders of supplemental contracts in the William Penn School District have resigned their positions to protest the lack of a teachers' contract.

Cardinal O'Hara girls' volleyball coach Mike Pagliara was looking for a measuring stick for his team. And the Lions found it Monday, defeating the defending Catholic League champion, Hallahan, by 15-5, 15-9, at O'Hara. The win kept the Lions undefeated at 10-0. "We knew how Hallahan would set the ball up to the corners or to the spot that would be open," Pagliara said. "We practiced a lot of defense and defensive strategies to play for different occasions, and were successful at that.

Most Philadelphia voters disagree with the way the School Reform Commission is handling its responsibilities. They're dissatisfied with Gov. Corbett's positions on public education. And they side with teachers in an ongoing contract dispute with the Philadelphia School District by a ratio of 4-1 - or so says a poll commissioned by the teachers union. The findings come from a new survey of 554 registered voters commissioned by the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers and conducted by a Democratic polling firm, Washington-based Hart Research Associates.

Propped up next to a satellite production truck, peering at a laptop outside Osceola County Stadium, Cullen McRae was practicing. Not hitting. Or pitching. Or fielding. The son of former big-league star and manager Hal McRae was busy watching TV. Specifically, preparing for his role as a replay wizard, a video review coordinator for the Miami Marlins. "It's cool to be a part of history," he said after Miami beat Houston, 7-2, Friday. "It's a work in progress for all of us. " Along with the rest of Major League Baseball, McRae is charging into this new world where managers can challenge calls by umpires.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Jonathan Papelbon's uneven performance last season as closer with the Phillies came down to one simple fact - he is not a very good loser. While Papelbon pitched last season with a hip injury that no doubt didn't help his cause, a second straight season of non-contention wrecked his psyche more than anything else. When he reported for his third Phillies spring training, he vowed to be a more positive influence, and so far he has been, although none of the games has been for keeps.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - The time was just before 12:30 p.m. when Mike Adams strode onto the lush green grass that separates a firing line of pitching rubbers from their respective home plates. The Carpenter Complex is mostly known as an incubator for big-league dreams, but every now and then the sprawling complex that unfolds in the shadow of Bright House Field gets a chance to rehabilitate them. "I was nervous," Adams said, "don't get me wrong. " Most of us would like to think that we would still feel that way at age 35, even with $13.5 million in career earnings and $7 million more on the way. That's what competition does, in almost any setting, from the first tee of a municipal golf course to the tipoff circle of 40-plus rec league.

Designers pulled a bunch of pretty, petaled patterns from their graphic arsenals this spring, planting them generously all over sheaths and trousers, jumpsuits and shorts. The idea, of course, was to get women so excited about the sweet peony prints that they would start shopping well before the first crocuses of spring. The last time flowers were this fashionable was the early '90s - so most of our closets had nary a bud. And coincidentally, it also helped that we needed a boost after months of snow and ice. "It's so nice that my store is exploding with flowers after such a harsh winter," said Annette Matczak Tymoski, a co-owner of Intrigue Fine Apparel, a designer boutique in Buckingham.

THE FIRST TIME Villanova played in the Big East tournament, in 1982, it lost in the title game to host Syracuse - by three points in as many overtimes. The following year the Wildcats were the top seed. Again they got to the final, where once more they lost, this time to Georgetown by a lot. In the 3 decades since, they've made it back to the final four times. The last was 1997, which also was the last time they were the top seed. Since then, they've won more than one game in the tourney only once.

WHEN A journalist recently asked Sen. Pat Toomey if it "should be legal for a hotel to turn away a couple because they're gay," he didn't answer the question. He simply responded by saying, "I haven't given that any thought. " How can a senator in modern-day America say something like that? I think Toomey knows where he stands on the issue, but didn't want people to know his true thoughts. As a gay man in Pennsylvania, it makes me sick to think that someone who represents the people could even consider such a discriminatory act. A look at his voting record sheds light on his real stance on this issue.

MOORESTOWN Even in anonymity, it seems, nice can triumph over nasty. That's what Moorestown High School students are finding out, thanks to a student-run Twitter account that lets people anonymously tweet compliments and positive statements to fellow students and faculty. Since it was set up Friday night, the site has gotten several hundred followers and posted several hundred good thoughts. The account, MHScompliments (@MHSComps14), was a response to crude and mean-spirited comments posted to the anonymous social media application Yik Yak last month.

Brett Brown knew that this would be a rough season, but the rookie 76ers coach admits that he really didn't realize how difficult things would be. Brown is doing his best to steer this sinking ship, a team that is 15-44 and has lost 13 consecutive games after Saturday night's home loss to the Washington Wizards. "To say I knew it was going to be like this is false," said Brown, who has been refreshingly candid throughout all the frustration. Yet Brown has one simple message: Don't feel sorry for him. He is coaching in the NBA and truly believes that things will turn around, just not right away.
