"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.

LOS ANGELES - Vinny Lecavalier thought this would be over by now. The 405-goal scorer was never expecting to be a healthy scratch for the first time in his career. He was on Tuesday in San Jose, but figured he'd get a crack at redemption after that last-second loss. "I definitely thought after a game, I'd come back in," Lecavalier said. "I guess [coach Craig Berube] didn't want me back in the lineup. " After all, Pierre-Edouard Bellemare and Andrew MacDonald were given a game to get their heads straight and then were promptly reinserted.

THERE'S NO question that Temple's football team is better than it was last year. How much better isn't as simple to quantify. In 2013, the Owls won only twice in Matt Rhule's head-coaching debut. But seven losses were in games they were in position to win, mostly because they had problems stopping the other guys from scoring. It's what bad teams do. Now they're 5-6, going into tomorrow night's regular-season finale at 3-8 Tulane. They've lost three straight, and five of their last six, mainly because they've had trouble scoring.

The 76ers are on the brink of a dubious NBA record, but the team is trying to maintain a positive attitude, not the easiest of tasks for an 0-17 club. If the Sixers fall Wednesday at Minnesota against the banged-up Timberwolves (4-12), they will tie the NBA mark for the worst start to a season set by the 2009-10 New Jersey Nets. Coach Brett Brown said he hasn't brought up the topic to his team. "I am going to keep moving along and try to stay focused on what is most important, and that record isn't even close to being what is most important," Brown said Tuesday after practice at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine.

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.

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.
