The future of the proposed $40-million Quadrangle life-care facility has landed in the lap of the Haverford Township Board of Commissioners, which is expected to approve it at its next meeting. On Oct. 29, members of the township planning commission, saying that they did not have enough information, rejected plans for the Quadrangle by a 3-2 vote. The vote surprised township officials, who had been so sure of the project's approval that the 1987 township budget, which increases spending without raising taxes, was predicated in part on taxes and permit fees expected from the Quadrangle.

After two months of uncertainty, plans for the $25-million Quadrangle life- care facility in Haverford Township have been approved. The Board of Commissioners voted 9-0 Monday night in favor of development plans by the Marriott Corp. of Washington for the 299-unit, life-care facility on 68 acres at Darby and Coopertown Roads. The plan itself was not controversial - in fact, the development, which will bring thousands of dollars in building fees into township coffers, was eagerly sought by township officials.

A Marriott Corp. plan to add 40 units - Marriott calls them cottages - to its Quadrangle life-care community at Darby and Marple Roads has won the tentative approval of the Haverford Township Planning Commission. The unanimous decision by six commission members, with Howard Hannold absent, would permit the cottages, clustered in 10 groupings, to be built on a 9-acre tract - the grounds of the former Mitchell School - across Marple Road from the proposed development, which was approved early last year.

The Haverford Township Planning Commission has unanimously recommended approval of Marriott Corp.'s latest plan to build the Quadrangle, a life-care facility, on a 79-acre Darby Road tract. The vote, at the meeting Wednesday night, was 5-0.

Another building would provide a 40-bed health-care facility with a nursing staff.

Carl Huber slowly brings the golf cart to a halt atop the hill and, if only for a moment, and if only in his own selfless manner, seems almost overcome with pride. "This," Huber says with a nod in a near-whisper, "is my favorite hole. " Before him lies the dreaded and treacherous No. 3, 150 yards downhill, over an overhanging limb for those bold enough, into a dime-sized green guarded by traps left and right and a swamp off the back - a quagmire of headaches for those few who brave it. It also is easily the No. 1 handicap hole at what can only be called "Huber's Alley," the six-hole, par-3 course that Huber - and pretty much he alone - built and maintains at the Quadrangle, the Haverford retirement home where the retired General Electric lifer and his wife, Mabel, have lived for the last eight years.

Almost from the time Lois McCallister was moved to the dementia unit at the Quadrangle nursing-care facility, her daughter says there were troubling signs. Her mother's $5,000 hearing aids went missing, Mary French said. Staff members were overheard shouting at one another. Insurance forms, to be filled out by the staff, went unfinished. But it was her mother's claim that people were hitting her that sent Mary French and her husband, Paul, to their computer. "I Googled hidden camera," Paul French said Tuesday.
