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.

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.

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.

SINCE THE UNION traded up to draft him first overall in January's MLS SuperDraft, goalkeeper Andre Blake's opportunities to play have been limited to a pair of appearances in the U.S. Open Cup, a stint with the Jamaican national team and in training sessions during the week. With the Union mired in a bye week from MLS competition, Blake got the nod in goal over starter Zac MacMath for last night's friendly with Crystal Palace, of the English Premier League. And although Philadelphia came out on the losing end, Blake displayed his talent, making several great saves in a 1-0 defeat at PPL Park.

In the tough part of Brooklyn where she spent her younger years, Bridgette Brawner saw neighbors strung out on drugs, arguments that turned violent, families like her own struggling to get by. But most frightening was watching as other kids grew to accept, and expect, a bleak future. "You get to a certain age and you're shot. Or you get to a certain age and you have a child," she said, recalling Flatbush. " . . . There had to be something else outside of what I was seeing. " A profound thought for a young girl, especially one struggling with personal issues as dark as sexual molestation.

Diagnosed with cerebral palsy, Cami needs leg braces and, except when she is home, uses forearm crutches. But that hasn't stopped this bubbly, polite 17-year-old with the curly red hair and the beautiful smile. She loves going to karate class and church, shopping, swimming, and watching TV. She is also looking forward to starting 12th grade in the fall. She enjoys school, where she receives special-education services, and especially likes her life-skills classes. If Cami had three wishes, they would be a computer, a new TV/DVR, and a vacation trip, preferably to Disney World.

ATLANTA - There will come a time, as soon as prospect Maikel Franco is deemed ready for the majors, when the Phillies must render a decision on Cody Asche's future. That could be August, September, or next spring, but the likelihood exists that Asche will be replaced at third base. Manager Ryne Sandberg sees Asche as a "steady bat with gap-to-gap power, maybe a 15-to-20 home run type of guy," an endorsement for everyday status. Asche carried a 10-game hitting into Saturday. A position switch - perhaps to left field - is possible.

Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon made news last week in Milwaukee when he said he would welcome a trade to a contender. Papelbon hasn't backed off those comments, but there is an addendum. He was asked Sunday how he would feel if he was still with the Phillies after the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. "I would be happy," Papelbon said before a 10-3 loss to the Washington Nationals at Citizens Bank Park. "I am pretty indifferent on the whole situation. " Papelbon, who has a 1.21 ERA and is 22 for 24 in save opportunities, said there are positives to staying or departing.

East Camden Middle School student Vaughn Williams took an idea - about a place both physical and spiritual - and ran with it. Halfway across the country. In Denver on May 9, Williams, assisted by eighth-grade classmate Fredrick Henderson, addressed about 150 people during a national Youth Development Institute conference. Their presentation featured video, a logo (an empty cube), and audience participation. It centered on a notion called "The Third Space," where one can find solitude or community, stress reduction, or strength of purpose.

AFTER FIVE innings of yesterday's matinee, the Phillies had just two hits and had yet to advance a runner to third base. A.J. Burnett, meanwhile, had allowed nine of the first 15 Angels batters he faced to reach base. Burnett and the Phillies were lucky to be trailing by only three runs through those five innings. That was one of the positives Burnett tried to take out of his second straight so-so start. The righthander allowed single runs in each of his first three innings, but he also watched the Angels leave seven baserunners on in the game's first five innings while going 3-for-12 with runners in scoring position.
