The Republican majority on the East Lansdowne Borough Council elevated a borough police officer to the rank of acting sergeant at the February council meeting, despite objections by the Democrats. At Monday's council meeting, the council voted, 4-3, along party lines to promote Officer John Egan, with the understanding that while the title of sergeant confers new responsibilities, it is not accompanied by a pay increase. By a 4-3 vote, the council earlier defeated a proposal by Democratic Councilman Benjamin Gallagher to delay a decision on Egan's status until the council caucus meeting on Feb. 29. Gallagher said he had not been informed of the proposed promotion until the night of the council meeting.

Charging that New Jersey's civil service promotion system is discriminatory, 13 black Willingboro Township police officers have filed a lawsuit challenging its legality. The lawsuit culminates years of agitation by the officers and black community leaders to get minority officers promoted into supervisory jobs. Attorneys for both the officers and Willingboro Township said a ruling for the black officers could lead to a restructuring of the state civil service system, which they said hinders attempts to promote blacks.

Is the honeymoon coming to an end for the Montgomery County Board of Commissioners? For the last five weeks, the two Republicans and one Democrat who make up the board have gotten along remarkably well - unlike their predecessors. Public discussions have been friendly and productive, devoid of the bickering that marked the previous administration. But those good feelings eroded just a bit at yesterday's weekly meeting. First, Democratic Commissioner Joseph M. Hoeffel accused the Republicans of handing out a promotion as a reward for political support.

There really ought to be a law to stop politicians from pandering for votes on the taxpayers' dime. That is why State Rep. Tom Scrimenti, a Democrat from the same Erie as the governor, has proposed a law every few years that would bar pols from advertising themselves in the same commercial touting Pennsylvania. The most blatant abuse of this practice so far this election year has been by Gov. Ridge himself. Here's a wondrous sampling of what's been running in a multimillion-dollar, taxpayer-funded, radio and television ad blitz throughout the governor's first term: "This is Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Ridge.

Could electronic cigarettes help millions of smokers kick their lethal addiction, saving lives and benefiting all of society? The U.S. Food and Drug Administration's stated plan to begin regulating e-cigs this summer has renewed debate over tobacco "harm reduction. " The idea is that some smokers can't or won't quit, even if they want to. By replacing their cigarettes with e-cigs - which deliver nicotine but eliminate carbon monoxide, tar, and other toxic chemicals found in tobacco smoke - they'll be better off, and so will the public.

Aaron Nola boarded a bus on Friday morning with the rest of his triple-A Lehigh Valley teammates. He then was told he was needed at the front desk of the team's hotel in Rochester, N.Y. "Why would they want to see me?" Nola said he thought. Waiting there was IronPigs manager Dave Brundage, who told Nola that he was joining the Phillies. Nola arrived at Citizens Bank Park on Monday afternoon. He found his locker sandwiched between Chad Billingsley's and Cole Hamels'. The righthander will make his major-league debut against Tampa Bay Tuesday night.

YOU CAN'T put a price tag on the experience Aaron Nola is going to get over the next couple of months. You can, however, put a price tag on the experience the Phillies are going to get. For now, it's 27 bucks. That's what it will cost for you and a friend to watch Nola's debut if you take advantage of the two-fer ticket deal the club advertised on its home page in the wake of yesterday's announcement that the organization's top pitching prospect would be called up in time to face the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday.

John Anderson hopes to help more people fall in love with the Rancocas Creek. "You paddle into a semi-wilderness . . . and you can't see houses, you can't hear anything," says the Westampton resident, 53. "All you hear is nature. It's hypnotic. It's an escape from everything around us. " Anderson, who regularly plies his red Pyranha Mountain 300 kayak along the storied Rancocas, is championing an excellent idea: Creating a "water trail" to encourage more people to kayak, canoe, or hike along tidal portions of the creek.

That document was sent to Kane the weekend before she promoted Duecker, a onetime supervisor of narcotics agents, to chief of staff, the sources said.

As neighbors filled the church pews and lined the aisles, they were warned: Don't talk about your property taxes tonight. But some feared the project on the table - 22 single-family houses spanning half a block of Point Breeze - would price them out of their homes. And the man at the front of the room, developer-turned-candidate Ori Feibush, seemed to only add to the anxiety. In minutes, people were shouting over the pews. "I would love change. But we want affordable change," a woman yelled into the microphone as others waited to speak.
