Two-term Hainesport Mayor Michael J. McMullen's resignation will be officially ruled upon at Tuesday's Township Committee meeting, township officials said. McMullen's letter of resignation, slated for review by township solicitor Bennett E. Bozarth, was entered into the record last Tuesday at a committee work session. Committee members were reluctant to act on the resignation, according to Committeeman Charles W. Gray. "We're not quite sure how to handle this," he said. "We just want to know the legal way to do it. " Township officials said McMullen abruptly walked out of an April 11 committee meeting when resident George Gauvry, a Zoning Board member, accused him of a "lack of leadership.

The Magnolia Council last night unanimously accepted the resignation of borough tax collector Maria Capuzzi. Capuzzi said in a letter received by the council Tuesday that she wanted her resignation retroactive to March 19. She did not give a reason in her letter for quitting, but she had been under fire from the council. Contacted at her home after last night's meeting, Capuzzi declined to comment on her resignation. Last month, Capuzzi said she had not been to work since the middle of February and had failed to attend three council meetings called especially to discuss her job performance and alleged record-keeping problems in the tax collection office because of "nervous tension, stress and pressure" related to her job. At that time, Mayor Catherine M. Quigley said Capuzzi had continued to use a record-keeping method that the council twice last year asked her to change.

The Haverford Township Board of Commissioners has agreed to try to "clear the air" concerning the resignation last month of Justine Hocker as director of the township library, but it has fallen short of asking her to reconsider her resignation. The commissioners were presented Monday night with a petition, containing more than 170 names, that urged Hocker to remain as librarian. The petition revived questions about her resignation, which many township observers said they believed had been forced by John Toal, a member of the library board of trustees.

Whatever they did, it seems Temple University's board of trustees couldn't win. Their most famous and loyal member, Bill Cosby, was the subject of an escalating string of ugly accusations of decades-old sexual assaults. Many of the board members are lawyers or judges, upholders of a system where one is presumed innocent until proved otherwise. And Cosby has never been found guilty of any sexual impropriety. So board members took their time, weighing what to do. While that annoyed some people, others expected nothing less.

GRADY SIZEMORE will be a member of the 2015 Phillies. In what capacity remains to be seen. The club announced yesterday that it had signed the once-talented but more recently inert outfielder to a $2 million contract for the upcoming season. Sizemore, a three-time All-Star with the Indians, joined the Phillies last summer after an uninspiring couple of months with the Red Sox. Despite a hot start with the Phillies, he finished the year hitting .233/.299/.354 overall. The signing underscores the decisions the Phillies have to make with their outfield.
