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.

THE KNEE-JERK reaction is to say Vinny Curry wouldn't have gotten his new five-year, $47.25 million contract had the Eagles remained a 3-4 defensive team, under Chip Kelly. But deposed defensive coordinator Bill Davis constantly talked up Curry's ability to get pass-rush pressure during the 2015 season, even though Curry's sack numbers fell from nine in 2014 to 3 1/2. Davis and other Eagles coaches felt Curry was a consistent force in pushing the pocket. To be a starter, though, a 3-4 end has to be a run-stopper, and that isn't Curry's game.

Among the most respected players in franchise history, Carroll joined the Union in their second year and helped the team earn its lone playoff berth that season in 2011.

The Obama administration is eager for the rapprochement, which it sees as a buffer against each nation's growing isolation.

ULTIMATELY, IT'S up to the Eagles whether Sam Bradford plays here next season, the outcome Chip Kelly indicated he expects. They can franchise their quarterback for 2016, at $20 million or so, if it comes to that. They'd surely prefer that it not come to that, since a longer-term contract could be amortized against the salary cap. If they don't want to pay $20 million, they can let him become a free agent and start over, in Kelly's fourth year. Talks toward a longer deal for Bradford didn't go anywhere in the preseason, and Wednesday, in Bradford's first media availability since Kelly spoke on Monday about wanting him here going forward, Bradford didn't profess any burning desire to stay.

HARRISBURG - After contending that his client was targeted in an anticorruption sting because she is African American, a defense lawyer dropped that allegation Wednesday and negotiated a plea deal for State Rep. Louise Williams Bishop in which she agreed to immediately resign from the legislature. A. Charles Peruto Jr. said that after reviewing evidence assembled by the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office, he concluded that his charge of racial bias "has no viability. " He also said he had reviewed the likely testimony of five key witnesses, including the sting's undercover operative and two top aides to state Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane, and realized that "none of them were going to be able to back up my claim of racial targeting.

From a "joke" about a battered woman to newly revealed verbal leering at public employees, Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice J. Michael Eakin's emails to fellow judges and attorneys are repugnant enough. His increasingly brazen attempts to rig the investigation of these transgressions only compound them. Having proven himself unfit to judge the state's citizens, much less supervise other judges as a member of the nation's oldest appellate court, Eakin should resign. That Eakin received many offensive emails and sent a few has been known for months.

THE UNFUNDED confederation of dysfunctional bureaucracies known as Pennsylvania continued to plumb new depths yesterday, with the governor calling for the resignation of a horndog Supreme Court justice who's feuding with an indicted attorney general who's in the crosshairs of a Senate that can't pass a budget. This is not how the Founding Fathers envisioned the three branches of government working. Gov. Wolf said in a statement yesterday that state Supreme Court Justice J. Michael Eakin should step down as a result of his involvement in the Porngate email scandal - and a recent attempt to clear his name by stacking a judicial ethics panel, as reported Saturday by the Inquirer . "Justice Eakin is complicit in sharing emails that contain racist, sexist and other derogatory materials, and his actions deserve the utmost scrutiny," Wolf said.

Gov. Wolf on Sunday renewed his call for Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice J. Michael Eakin to resign, but the justice's lawyer said Eakin has no intention of stepping down. Wolf said Sunday that Eakin showed "a remarkable lack of judgment" by voting to fill a vacancy on the judicial disciplinary tribunal that is to weigh misconduct allegations against him in the pornographic email scandal. Elaborating on his criticism of Eakin's conduct, the governor issued a statement Sunday that reiterated his call for the justice to resign.
