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.

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.

After their six-game points streak ended on a fluke goal in the closing seconds Tuesday, Flyers captain Claude Giroux tried to put a positive spin on things. "We're going to have games like this; we just can't have too many," Giroux said minutes after the Flyers dropped a 3-2 decision to Toronto at the Wells Fargo Center. "We're going to have games where we're not going to play the right way, but you know what, the last seven games we've been playing some good hockey. " The Flyers entered Tuesday with the NHL's fifth-best points percentage (.690)

Gov. Christie's shifting positions and rhetoric drew scrutiny during Thursday night's GOP debate, as he fended off a question on whether his stance on gun control had "evolved," and rebutted a rival's attempt to tar him as insufficiently conservative. In addition to stressing conservative credentials - highlighting his vetoes of gun-control legislation and rejection of the Common Core educational standards - Christie used blunt language to try to distance himself from President Obama, accusing the president of overstepping his authority with his recent executive action on guns.

The 76ers' newfound swagger took a stiff right to the chin from the Los Angeles Lakers before several haymakers courtesy of the Los Angeles Clippers. While they were dazed, and perhaps in need of a standing eight count, the Sixers (3-33) were still pleased with their overall fight in the five-game, post-Christmas West Coast trip. They opened the trip by defeating the Phoenix Suns, 111-104, on Dec. 26 before losing, 95-91, to the Utah Jazz two days later. Then the Sixers got back on the winning track with a 110-105 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Dec. 30. But they ended the trip with losses on consecutive days to the Lakers and Clippers at the Staples Center.

By Kate Harper The loss of civil discussion has caused some of the dysfunction we are experiencing in our nation's capital and in state capitals, including Harrisburg. Competition with hashtags and the substitution of Twitter feeds for listening get in the way of getting things done. When I was a young commercial litigator, someone gave me the book Getting to Yes: Negotiating Agreement Without Giving In , by William Ury and Roger Fisher. This short book, based on the Harvard Negotiation Project, teaches a style of negotiation focused on interests and common ground, rather than dwelling on the people or positions of the "other side.

BOCA RATON, Fla. - The most decorated defensive player in Temple history was devastated. After Tuesday's 32-17 loss to Toledo in the Boca Raton Bowl, Temple all-American linebacker Tyler Matakevich, tried hard fighting back tears, but clearly lost that battle.

After the game, Matakevich tried to look at the overall picture, while also dissecting a difficult final act. "It is the last time wearing this uniform and it definitely [stinks]

IMHOTEP SENIOR Jordan McCray could have copped an attitude and become a disruptive and disgruntled player, or just flat-out transferred. Currently, McCray possesses the size, speed and athleticism to play linebacker in college somewhere next season. The problem is that the 6-2, 210-pounder plays defensive end really well for the Panthers (14-0), who will play District 10 Cathedral Prep (14-1) in the Class AAA state championship at 7 p.m. Friday at Hersheypark Stadium.

Sheila Hess considers the birth defect that left her paralyzed from the knees down a gift. Really, she says. Because, without it, Hess' parents might never have moved from Southern California to Philadelphia, as they did in 1969 to get their infant daughter treatment at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. She might never have grown up in a bustling and loving Grays Ferry neighborhood and fallen in love with the city, where on a weekly basis she zips from charity board meeting to volunteer outing to ritzy gala, working 10-hour days at Independence Blue Cross in between, all the while propelling herself on two aluminum crutches.

It would be easy, perhaps, to build a narrative around Chip Kelly's "positive reinforcement" in contrast to Malcolm Jenkins' "holding players accountable," and come to the conclusion that one or the other had more to do with the Eagles' upset win against the Patriots. Kelly showed each of his players film of one standout play they made this season on the eve of Sunday's game in Foxborough, Mass. Several said it was the first time he'd done so, but the principle behind the exercise wasn't any different than Kelly's core belief about accentuating the positive.

Temple's Eric Lofton has moved all over the offensive line, but it hasn't affected the fifth-year senior's performance. Lofton has started 11 games for the 10-2 Owls: one at left guard, four at right guard and six at right tackle, where he has appeared in each of the last four games. With Lofton playing a major role, the offensive line has been among Temple's most improved units from last year's 6-6 team. The 6-foot-5, 302-pound graduate of South Jersey's Rancocas Valley High said he doesn't mind shuffling along the line.
