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.

Media sessions, missed tackles, and blown assignments all get under the skin of new Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz, a throwback coach with an NC-17 vocabulary. For the media that means no explanations of what happened - good or bad - immediately after games, a courtesy provided by the team's defensive coordinators at least since the Jim Johnson era. That's too bad because when Schwartz does speak he is almost always enlightening and entertaining, which is why he has probably developed a following among former players.

Last year, the would-be NFL general manager met with the wise and accomplished former player personnel executive, and the two of them discussed the question that came to define the Eagles' 2016 offseason: What is the best way to find a great player at the most important position in football? The men spent a few days together, probing each other's mind to flesh out their respective philosophies about the search for a franchise quarterback. Finally, the elder man persuaded his conversation partner that the best course of action was to do the exact opposite of what the Eagles did during the 2016 offseason.

When Dorial Green-Beckham landed at Philadelphia International Airport last week, he was greeted by Eagles employees Quintin Mikell and Dom DiSandro. It was no surprise that they were the first faces from the organization to meet the new Eagles receiver. Mikell, who played in Philadelphia for the first eight of his 11 NFL seasons, is the team's director of player engagement. And DiSandro, who did most of the pre-trade background legwork on Green-Beckham, is the Eagles' vice president of team security.

Jim Schwartz exaggerated only a little bit after being asked how much stock he puts into what he sees during the preseason. "For a long time I was with Tennessee, and our biggest division rival was the Colts," the Eagles defensive coordinator said. "Every year the Colts would go 0-4 in the preseason. And if you said, 'Oh, they're going to be down this year,' you were on the wrong boat. " Schwartz never jumped off the SS Peyton Manning because he was sure the quarterback would captain the Colts to another successful voyage once the games had meaning.

TURKEY HAS always had a little bit of a problem with the truth. For decades, the Turkish government has denied that it executed the first real genocide in modern times when it eliminated the Christian Armenian population that had been living within the territories of the Ottoman Empire. According to Samantha Power in her magisterial book A Problem From Hell , "Beginning in March 1915, [the New York Times] spoke of Turkish 'massacres,' 'slaughter,' and 'atrocities' against the Armenians, relaying accounts by missionaries, Red Cross officials, local religious authorities and survivors of mass executions.

We investors are suffering a bizarre new phenomenon - where banks and governments are "paying" negative interest rates. Negative rates imply that customers actually pay for keeping money in the bank or in sovereign bonds, rather than receiving interest. Negative interest rates in countries such as Germany and Japan are an experiment to stimulate consumer spending. Just last week, Germany sold 10-year bonds yielding negative rates - investors pay the sovereign to hold these fixed-income securities!

DENVER - Daniel Stumpf said fish oil is the only supplement he has ever taken and he has no idea how he tested positive for an anabolic steroid. The relief pitcher returned to the Phillies on Sunday morning at Coors Field at the completion of his 80-game suspension for testing positive for chlorodehydromethyltestosterone, a discontinued steroid that was used by East German athletes under the brand name "Oral Turinabol.
