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.

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.

Ann Mosakowski, board president, said many of the teachers were pressured into resigning by the William Penn Education Association, the teachers' union.

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.

Last summer, long after the 2015 Phillies were forgotten, they went 21-14 in a 35-game stretch. The team had a new manager, and various trades remade the roster, but it mattered little. No one could point at the standings. The tangible proof that the organization was headed in the right direction was harder to pinpoint. We remember what happens first, and we remember what happens last. The 2016 Phillies went 20-15 in their first 35 games, and new general manager Matt Klentak watched like any invested person would.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Post positions rarely matter except at tracks where certain styles are winning more than normal. They also matter in the Kentucky Derby because there are 20 horses in two gates and it is the Derby where everything matters. Nyquist, the unbeaten 3-1 morning-line favorite drew post 13, just one spot from the end of the main gate. The other six horses will be in the auxiliary gate. Nyquist's trainer Doug O'Neill was not unhappy with the post, but was more interested in the horses outside Nyquist, especially the likely pacesetter, the very fast Danzing Candy who drew the 20 post.

JOE DOUGLAS, described by a source close to the situation as the "top candidate" to direct Eagles personnel under Howie Roseman, is scheduled to interview for the job Thursday, and could be officially hired very quickly after that. An NFL observer who knows Douglas well called him "a worker bee" Wednesday - a well-regarded scout who keeps a low public profile, and wouldn't mind reporting to Roseman, the former general manager restored to power by team chairman Jeffrey Lurie at the end of the 2015 season.

It took 31 years of beating both the backroads and the highways of baseball across the United States for Pete Mackanin to enter spring training as a major-league manager, so he began this season with the Phillies knowing that when good things happen in this game, they don't always happen quickly. That kind of journey develops patience but also a determination to keep going. Mackanin has a mostly inexperienced team, and young players can't be expected to be patient. It is the other quality he seeks.

I'm looking at economist Kevin Gillen's recent take on New Jersey's economy and housing outlook, and the first thing that comes to mind is the New Jersey Turnpike. Are you as blown away as I am about how easy it is now to navigate the turnpike from Exit 8 to Exit 4, and vice versa, since they finished the reconstruction? It's just mind-boggling, not having to wait 45 minutes while a zillion cars, trucks, and buses from six lanes try to merge into three, or ease from three lanes into six. I just wish the outlook for the economy and housing that Gillen recently presented to the Atlantic Builders' Conference was as positive.

'To-ri! To-ri! To-ri!" The chant erupted several times from the ravenous crowd who had come to worship a special kind of pop star at the sold-out Electric Factory. Tori Kelly is a good girl, a self-made 23-year-old with artistic integrity, an impressive catalog, and musical chops that earned her a jam invitation from the late, great Purple One. She had the room in the palm of her hands. Fitting that she would open Monday night's concert with "Unbreakable Smile," the title track from her major-label debut released in June.

Camden County Clerk Joseph Ripa dipped his hand into a worn wooden box and slowly pulled out the names of five campaign slogans associated with the presidential, congressional, and county government candidates who will run together on slates in New Jersey's June 7 primary. The random drawing, conducted with both drama and a touch of humor in front of a dozen spectators Friday afternoon, settled the testy jockeying for ballot positions. It also ended the potential of a second court challenge by newcomer Alex Law, who is vying to unseat Donald Norcross, in a heated Democratic primary battle for a seat in the First Congressional District.

ISSUE | POPE FRANCIS Not enough 'joy' The title " Amoris Laetitia ," or "The Joy of Love," seems strange for a document by Pope Francis that calls "irregular" relationships emblematic of those who live in an "imperfect manner" ("Pope urges compassion for gays, divorced," Saturday). Love is a loose term, and joy is an emotional reaction for those who are no longer distressed, angered, frightened, or disgusted by being judged "irregular" and "imperfect. " Compassion without celebration remains a form of denigration.

BOCA RATON, Fla. - The Eagles coach was not the biggest attraction on the Wednesday morning of the NFL meetings for a change. There were no one-liners coming from Doug Pederson's table at the annual NFC coaches breakfast, and there were no controversies for him to quash. The new era of the Eagles was most evident in the relative lack of attention that came Pederson's way - at least compared to Chip Kelly. Pederson is two months into the job and two weeks away from bringing his team together for the first time on April 4. The roster has been reconstructed during the offseason, but the biggest change is on the sideline, where Pederson replaces Kelly and will introduce new schemes.

JOE AND Marcy Cobb are like the folks you see pushing carts through Acme on Saturdays. Joe is a Philly cop; Marcy's a nurse at a local hospital. They are married and have four kids, including a set of fraternal twins. They are a loving, hardworking family with all the usual ups and downs. In other words, they're like a whole lot of middle-class African Americans - except that they're characters in a nationally syndicated cartoon strip called JumpStart that makes its debut in the Daily News on Monday.
