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.

OFFICIALLY, THE Eagles' right guard competition remains wide open among four contenders. Unofficially, Andrew Gardner sure looks like the guy to beat. Gardner practiced with the first team last week and started Sunday's preseason opener against the Colts, which Chip Kelly swore was little more than coincidence, really it could have been anybody, he picked Gardner's name out of thin air, etc. Gardner was with the first offensive line again in yesterday's practice, though, and Lane Johnson, the right tackle, seems to be under the impression that means something.

DEPTH IN the secondary has become a big focus for the Eagles. Sunday's preseason-opening victory over Indianapolis provided the first big test for the young guys who will be expected to provide it. Results were encouraging. Jaylen Watkins and Eric Rowe, leading contenders for the nickel cornerback position since the team traded away Brandon Boykin, didn't give up any big plays. Rowe, the second-round rookie from Utah, closed fast and forced a fumble after initially being fooled by the Colts' shifty rookie, Phillip Dorsett.

D EAR ABBY: I'm writing in response to "Not Talking About the Future," whose wife has breast cancer, was told she has only a few years to live and feels sad when her kids talk about their futures. My dad was diagnosed with stage four multiple myeloma, a type of blood cancer, in 2006. He was told that even the most aggressive treatment would buy him only two or three more years. Well, he's now working on year nine. While I must admit that it's been hard at times for me to stay positive about his prognosis, I try not to let it show.

IT SHOULD BE comforting to G.J. Kinne that he is still here and has a chance to stick around for a third season. There is nothing Chip Kelly likes more than a weapon he can use in more than one way, and Kinne, a practice squad quarterback the past two years, is now a wide receiver, who also takes reps with the running backs. And maybe most crucially, Kinne still has a year of practice squad eligibility, as he gets his new-position feet under him. But viewed another way, this training camp has to be terrifying.

D EAR ABBY: A family member has recently lost more than 100 pounds running and doing yoga. She looks fantastic. Yoga is the focus of her life now, and she posts daily photos of herself on social media. In many of them she is scantily clad and in poses some might consider risque. Whenever she attends family gatherings or outings to public places, she wants to take pictures of herself in various poses. This makes some of the people she's with uncomfortable. She says she doesn't care what others think, but there have been quite a few negative comments about this, and people have "unfollowed" her on social media.

EMMAUS, Pa. - It's crunch time at Rodale's Organic Life - and not the kind that involves granola or carrot sticks. The third issue of this new, bimonthly lifestyle magazine that taps into the growing popularity of all things organic is going to print. A dozen staffers have gathered to go over the final to-dos. But the editorial meeting doesn't get past item No. 2 - the table of contents - before editor-in-chief, author, and foodie James Oseland interjects. "I think we can give it a little more TLC. " His compact torso strains over the conference table as though he's in the last meter of a sprint, hands slicing the air. "I think we can make some of the language more robust, clearer, inviting.

IF YOU GOOGLE news stories about "black males," among what you'll read is that a baby born today stands a 1-in-3 chance of ending up in jail or prison, the group has a higher rate of prostate cancer than whites and that stereotypes about them being violent criminals abound. Such headlines, and the steady parade of life-and-death clashes with police that has given rise to the "Black Lives Matter" movement, has cast a decidedly dim light on the image of the black man. Tonight, in an effort to acknowledge and affirm positive aspects of black manhood, men who are enduring and overcoming life's challenges will be spotlighted at "Beyond Expectations: Engaging Males of Color," a performing arts showcase created by the city of Philadelphia's Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disAbility Services in partnership with First Person Arts, a nonprofit story-telling organization.

An employee at West Chester University has tested positive for Legionnaires' disease, and "higher-than-acceptable" levels of the bacteria that cause it were found in eight campus buildings, officials said Wednesday. Immediate steps were taken to kill the Legionella bacteria that were found in the buildings' cooling towers, Mark Mixner, vice president of administration and finance, wrote in a memo to the university's more than 1,000 employees. The university "engaged a remediation firm that is treating the affected cooling towers" Wednesday and Thursday to eliminate the bacteria and ensure they do not return, Mixner said.

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.
