  DOYLESTOWN Bucks County commissioners spent an hour at their meeting Wednesday discussing an audiovisual system for the new courthouse, farm soil quality, and new chairs for the 911 call center. But when the floor was opened for public comment, the first five residents addressed the same topic, and it was none of the above. "I think that this whole gay-marriage thing and gay-rights thing in general is a new development," said Bill Tribley, 58, of Telford, later adding, "I would just encourage you to support traditional marriage in all ways.

ADMINISTRATORS from the Philadelphia School District implored City Council yesterday to lobby Harrisburg for a permanent funding solution to bear the cost of the city's public-school system and avoid "year-to-year begging.

Councilwoman Jannie Blackwell, who chairs the education committee, said during a marathon public hearing in City Hall that district officials seem to wait until the last minute to present their budget to City Council.

DARRYLL MARTIN took some NyQuil for his cold and was about to climb into bed about 10 o'clock Wednesday night when his mother's frantic screams tore through the family's Frankford home, setting him on a course to become a hero. Martin, 33, raced downstairs. Dennis "Bam" Hill, a raging, 6-foot-3, 300-plus-pound family friend visiting from New York, had a viselike grip on his own two daughters, ages 1 month and 4 years, and a fistful of sharp kitchen utensils. "He has the two kids gripped up, and the fork and the knife like this," Martin recounted yesterday, making a fist.

Debate swirled Sunday over the not-guilty verdict in the Trayvon Martin case, as public officials and private citizens focused on racial profiling, self-defense, and equal justice.

BEIRUT - Lebanon's third-largest city was turned into a battle zone Monday as the military battled heavily armed followers of an extremist Sunni cleric holed up in a mosque in a southern port city. Residents fled as machine-gun fire and grenade explosions shook the coastal area in one of the deadliest rounds of violence, seen is a test of the weak state's ability to contain the furies unleashed by Syria's civil war. At least 16 soldiers were killed in two days of clashes with armed followers of Ahmad al-Assir, a maverick sheikh whose rapid rise among the ranks of some Sunnis is a symptom of the deep frustration among many who resent the Hezbollah-led Shiite ascendancy to power in Lebanon.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Remains of two people have been found in an area burned by a wildfire that has destroyed at least 360 houses northeast of Colorado Springs. El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa said one person who was reported missing Wednesday was found safe, but crews on Thursday found the remains of another person reported missing. About an hour later they found the remains of a second person, he said. The number of homes destroyed by the voracious wildfire, driven in all directions by shifting winds, was likely to climb as the most destructive blaze in Colorado history burned for a third day through miles of tinder-dry woods.

Or maybe I'm more inured to it, I'm not sure. Anyway, two close friends of mine lost incredibly loving parents recently, and that has gotten me thinking about what I could possibly say about mine in a eulogy.
