Larry Boling, who has resigned as director of finance and administration effective Sept. 12. Chairman Robert J.

The Lower Merion Township commissioner who on Wednesday challenged the township's method of renewing a contract for its manager, alleging that process lacked "transparency," said today the vote has been postponed. In an e-mail to constituents, Jenny Brown credited "public pressure" with forestalling the new contract vote for manager Doug Cleland. Brown claimed in her e-mail that Cleland's contract was due for a vote Wednesday night during the board of commissioners meeting, before the board had time to become familiar with the terms.

VILLAS, N.J. - A python - or boa constrictor - is on the loose in this Cape May County community, but animal control says it's probably not looking for a meal any time soon. Last week, a resident saw the snake eating a seagull in a tree in her backyard. She snapped a photo but didn't think to call it in until days later, said Linda Gentille, the public information officer for Shore Animal Control. Describing the snake's behavior as "terrorizing" might be a bit of a stretch, Gentille said.
