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.

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!

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.

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.

By Berwood A. Yost No candidate with negative personal popularity has won an election for U.S. Senate, governor, or president in Pennsylvania. Not one. That Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are the most unpopular candidates ever to run for president is one more example of how unusual and unpredictable this campaign is and will be. When people who follow politics closely talk about a candidate's popularity, they are normally speaking about that candidate's favorability rating.

LONG POND, Pa. - The first time Brad Keselowski arrived at Pocono Raceway as a driver, in 2010, the track's condition was not much different from what it was when he visited in the early 1990s. But in the last five years, Keselowski said, the track has significantly improved. It was repaved, barriers were made safer, and the entrance wall to pit road was extended. "My opinion has changed dramatically," Keselowski said. ". . . It's seen a lot of upgrades that make me feel better about coming here specific to the Safer barriers and things of that nature.

LIKE ANY good clinical diagnosis, this one is based on over three minutes of conversation that was eavesdropped upon in the locker room of a local health club. It is supported by no empirical evidence, and any expert testimony that advances the argument does so only because it has been cherry-picked for that exact purpose. In other words, it, like all other arguments advanced beneath this byline, is airtight. Now that we have the pesky disclosures out of the way, here's the scoop: Last week, on the morning of the NBA draft lottery, I overheard a conversation between two middle-aged men who were discussing the various complications that await the Sixers upon the return of Joel Embiid.

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.

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.

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.
