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.

Melissa Murray Bailey, the Republican nominee for mayor of Philadelphia, was running a low-key campaign in a sleepy race. That all changed two weeks ago when Bailey began staking out positions on issues, including some with a national profile. Drawing national attention could help Bailey's campaign, which as of last month had raised less than $10,000, in the race against Democratic nominee Jim Kenney, who had more than 12 times that much campaign cash in the bank as of June 8. Bailey, in one of her campaign's first official statements, said she would not continue Philadelphia's status as a so-called Sanctuary City if she won. "Providing a safe harbor in Philadelphia for illegal immigrants who commit violent crimes is the wrong choice," Bailey said.

Walk into The Keeper Institute and there's no sign of what the director and founder has accomplished. No big posters on the wall of the four years spent representing the United States. No mention of placing second in the 2011 World Cup, or the gold medal finish in the 2012 Summer Olympics. No trace of the fact that she played with and against some of the best in the world. You'd be forgiven for thinking this Sewell warehouse was just another place for local soccer players to practice.

D EAR ABBY: I moved away from my hometown 18 years ago. At the time, a friend of mine had found out she was HIV-positive. Thankfully, healthwise she's doing well. To look at her you would never know. We have reconnected, but I have recently learned that she had several relationships in the past and didn't reveal that she was HIV-positive or use protection. She says she "loves" these men, their families and their children. It makes me sick that she's killing them. Someone called her doctor and he talked to her about it, but she lied and said that she had told them.

Superintendent William R. Hite Jr. has gotten his report card: solid, but not straight A's. And though he was eligible for a performance bonus, Hite declined one, citing the Philadelphia School District's dire financial straits. The city schools leader was evaluated by the School Reform Commission in six areas: student growth and achievement; systems leadership; district operations and financial management; communication and community relations; human resources management; and professionalism.

Drexel University has laid off "several dozen" administrative employees as a result of a new admissions policy that brought in fewer freshmen for the fall. University officials declined to specify the number of layoffs or how many vacant positions were eliminated, but said the move - along with other cost-cutting - will save $18 million. No faculty members were cut. The employees were to be dismissed by Wednesday. "When we made the conscious decision to take a smaller class size to increase quality, we knew we were going to have to cut administrative costs," said Lori Doyle, senior vice president for university communications.

G.J. KINNE wants to play in the NFL. He's not concerned about the job description. He doesn't care if he's a quarterback, wide receiver, running back or nose tackle. He just wants to play. Kinne has spent the better part of the last two seasons as a quarterback on the Eagles' practice squad. But even with an impressive 138.2 preseason passer rating the last two summers, he realized it would be next to impossible for him to make the Eagles' 53-man roster this summer strictly as a quarterback.

IF YOU have been around college sports as long as I have, you meet every imaginable kind of person - some with agendas, others who are in it just for themselves, overmatched incompetents. You also get to know people like Vince Nicastro, who is everything good about college athletics - honest, fair-minded, reasonable and terrific at his job. When it was announced yesterday that Nicastro, the Villanova athletics director for 15 years, will be leaving his job sometime soon to become the associate director of the Jeffrey S. Moorad Center for the Study of Sports Law at the Villanova School of Law, I felt good for Vince and his family because that is what they want.

For Jeb Bush, the initial plan was to stun the opposition into submission with boatloads of money, his network, his lineage. But nobody in the Republican presidential race was scared off by the former governor of Florida (except, perhaps, Mitt Romney). Instead, as he prepares to formally launch his candidacy Monday, Bush has slipped from heavy favorite to just one of several candidates clumped together near the top of a growing field. He does not lead in any of the early-voting states, most polls show.

Give some of L&I's work to - the Parking Authority? Democratic mayoral nominee Jim Kenney's idea of having the Philadelphia Parking Authority (PPA) assume some lesser duties of the much-maligned Department of Licenses and Inspections and the Streets Department is being mostly met with encouragement or approval. "This falls in the category of 'Novel idea with a lot of tire-kicking to do,' " said David Thornburgh, head of the watchdog group Committee of Seventy. "A very preliminary idea" is how Kenney campaign spokeswoman Lauren Hitt described it Friday.

JOSH HUFF had one of those telling pauses while answering a question about his strength as a wide receiver. "I feel like once I have the ball in my hands, I'm one of the best receivers in the game," the Eagles' second-year receiver said yesterday, "but . . . , I mean, I've got to get it in my hands first. " I'm not sure what the high side of expectations was for Huff's rookie year. After all, even though the 2014 draft was considered deep in talent at wideout, Huff was still on the board when the Eagles drafted him in the third round, 86th overall, out of the University of Oregon.
