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.

After 15 seasons as the Archbishop Ryan boys' basketball coach, Bernie Rogers is now in charge at Haverford School. A significant factor in the decision, the 41-year-old said, was the teaching position that came with the job. He will be a lower- and middle-school health and physical education teacher at Haverford. "Nothing really worked out as far as getting a teaching job at Ryan," Rogers said. "This is a move that that will help me career-wise and allow me to teach and coach in the same building.

NEW YORK - Bryant Jennings played on his cellphone late Saturday as he sat behind a microphone at the postfight news conference. The North Philadelphia boxer apologized when it was his time to speak. Jennings had to finish sending a text message. His unanimous decision loss to Wladimir Klitschko, the world's premier heavyweight, had ended about a half hour earlier. Jennings went the distance at Madison Square Garden, proving to be a stiffer-than-expected challenge over 12 rounds. His phone was abuzz.

Maddie Decker is a pretty positive person. The quick-with-a-smile senior is the kind of softball player who picks up her teammates instead of chastising them for what they did wrong. She's a selfless competitor who does whatever coach Dan Hayes needs her to do, no matter the circumstances. One would think that what happened to Central Bucks South's optimistic leader Friday afternoon would change that. It was the sixth inning at Quakertown and Decker, the Titans' starting pitcher, came charging in on a ground ball.

WASHINGTON - Someone scribbled "Y.O.Y.O. " with a green marker on the whiteboard in the Phillies clubhouse before the game Saturday against the Nationals. There was no designated time for the Phillies players to be in the batting cages before the afternoon contest. "You're on your own," the message meant. Ben Revere, struggling through the worst season-starting slump of his career, grabbed three bats and made his way to the cages. The leftfielder was out of the lineup for a third straight game.

In Philly, we don't pick judges based on skill. That's not the way. The process has little to do with merit. It's all about the chance of a lucky ballot spot, and the sway of money and politics. The judicial kingmakers - the Democratic City Committee, the power brokers, the vote-wielding ward leaders - aren't sweating over quality, credentials, and experience. Hey, if you've got some brains, it probably won't hurt you. But if you don't, it's not going to count against you either.

Yet, he is keeping everything in perspective, including his timetable to get to Citizens Bank Park.

"In my rehab starts, I was always pitching during the day. "Overall, I was happy with it. My curveball was good and my fastball was loose.

Feeling optimistic? You've got company. More than two-thirds of Philadelphians recently surveyed said they expect the city to improve over the next five years, while fewer than one in five see worse times ahead. More young people say they plan to stay. In fact, the historically cantankerous denizens of the nation's fifth-most-populous city now report feeling more positive than at any time in the last six years, according to a poll by the Pew Charitable Trusts, which has asked the same question about residents' outlook since 2009.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - When approached at his locker before the final game of the 2014 season, Ryan Howard was a little surprised people thought there was a chance he wouldn't be in a Phillies uniform when the baseball schedule resumed. But then an offseason of trade rumors began; the rebuilding Phillies worked aggressively in their attempts to trade Howard. In December, general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said in a radio interview that the team would be better off without Howard (he later apologized to Howard)
