Nicholas Trabosh, Township Council president for the last 17 years, has accepted the position of municipal judge in Berlin Township, a seat left open when Angelo DeCamillo was named to the Camden County Superior Court. "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.

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.

When Leslie Richards became a Montgomery County commissioner in 2012, she was inundated by men angling for positions on boards, commissions, and authorities. "It did not take much longer for me to realize that women were unaware of these opportunities," which give individuals influence and can be springboards to higher-level positions, Richards said. "It was quite frustrating, and I have to say it made me angry," she said. "I had to do something about it, but I wasn't quite sure what I could do. " The result of many long conversations with friends and advisers is Plan W. It's a political action committee that will support candidates for positions in local and county government across Pennsylvania - men and women, Democrats and Republicans - who pledge to boost the number of women in prominent staff and board positions.

Villanova coach Andy Talley thought the Wildcats had to win one of their final two regular-season games to secure a Football Championship Subdivision playoff berth. Others thought the Wildcats were already in, but 'Nova went ahead and made its coach feel more secure with a 48-31 win over Albany in a Colonial Athletic Association game Saturday night at chilly Villanova Stadium. Villanova scored touchdowns on its first six possessions to take a 42-10 lead. The Wildcats, ranked No. 6 by the Sports Network, are 9-2 overall and 6-1 in the CAA heading into the regular-season finale Saturday at Delaware.

U.S. SEN. Bob Casey Jr., in a tight spot, tried to dodge. Journalist Steve Highsmith asked the Scranton native which Democrat with family ties to that city - Vice President Joe Biden or former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton - would do better there for president in 2016. "It's only 2014," Casey said at the Committee of Seventy's annual fundraiser breakfast. "They've both done well there. " Highsmith persisted and Casey praised Clinton's chances if she runs, leaving Biden out of it. "She's in as commanding a position as I've ever seen a nominee in my life," Casey said.

Today's letters are in response to last Sunday's decision by Gerry Lenfest, publisher of The Inquirer, the Daily News, and Philly.com, to try a different way to approach endorsements. His call for reader reactions resulted in more than 200 e-mail responses. Here's a sample. Corbett fate in mind? As a longtime subscriber to The Inquirer, I wish you had polled readers before taking the unprecedented decision not to endorse in the governor's race. I take the endorsements seriously - not that I always vote as they recommend.

Glancing at their resumés, it is easy to confuse the two men running for Pennsylvania's lieutenant governor - State Sen. Mike Stack (D., Pa.) and Republican incumbent Jim Cawley. Both are products of local Catholic high schools - Bishop Egan for Cawley, La Salle for Stack - with law degrees from local universities - Cawley is a Temple grad; Stack has a Villanova degree. Both come from families steeped in Irish tradition and are members of the Ancient Order of Hibernians, the Irish Catholic fraternal organization.

In their first extended road trip of the season, the Flyers passed the test. Somehow. Though they had some unsettling defensive moments, the Flyers won two of three games - sandwiching wins in Dallas and Pittsburgh around a one-sided defeat in Chicago - to bring some equilibrium to a shaky start. "It's a good trip," coach Craig Berube said. "You're not happy about certain things, but when you look at the big picture, we got two wins on the road. We'll take it and go home, get rested up, and play Saturday.

The presumption for the last month is that the feeling within the Penn State football program hasn't been very positive, what with the Nittany Lions having lost games before each of their two bye weeks. If you told that to James Franklin, however, he would say that you are wrong. With the Lions preparing for Saturday night's game at Beaver Stadium against 13th-ranked Ohio State, Franklin exuded positivity and confidence Tuesday at his weekly news conference as his team tries to bounce back from losses to Northwestern and Michigan that saw it score just one touchdown and 19 total points.

The Flyers played good hockey against a good team Tuesday night at the Wells Fargo Center, and the best thing they could say afterward was that at least it was not good for nothing. They were still winless after four games and far from pleased with their 4-3 shootout loss to the Anaheim Ducks, but when you're off to a slow start for the second straight season you look for progress any place you can find it. And, after an inexplicable third-period collapse against Montreal over the weekend, this definitely represented movement in a positive direction even if it was also another reminder that the Flyers are in trouble whenever a hockey game is decided by that silly little thing called a shootout.

West Deptford is too accustomed to real victories to take much solace in moral ones. But the Eagles' senior leader still believes there were positives to Thursday's 28-25 overtime loss to archrival Haddonfield. "We should know after that game that there's nobody we can't beat," West Deptford senior fullback/linebacker Kevin DeCeasar said. Strange as it seems, the loss might have been a confidence booster for West Deptford, especially given the way the Eagles played in the second half.

  Children's Hospital of Philadelphia on Friday reported that it was treating three patients with a combination of muscle weakness and spinal abnormality, joining a growing number of institutions across the country that are seeking to understand clusters of cases with the same symptoms. While the symptoms have been seen before, the combination is uncommon and similar cases would normally be seen over a much longer time period. This type of neurological disorder is often caused by an infection, and investigators hope to determine whether these symptoms are linked to an enterovirus, D68, that suddenly showed up in increasing numbers less than a month ago and has been causing respiratory illness in at least 40 states.
