The West Conshohocken Zoning Hearing Board has approved a revised plan for the Tower Bridge business complex parking structure on Front Street. At a meeting Wednesday night, the board voted 2-1 in favor of the plan, which would reduce, from 10 feet to 4 feet, the setback requirement for a 200- foot section of the lot. The plan, presented by Tower Bridge project engineer Geoff Nara, had been rejected just last week by the borough Planning Commission,...

If location is the most important aspect of real estate, then a small, half-acre lot on Route 30 in West Whiteland Township, next to Dunkin Donuts, is in trouble. For one thing, the front and rear setback requirements overlap each other, which leaves no space to build under current township zoning ordinances. For another thing, the last thing built there - a small house - was wiped out by a truck in the early 1980s, township officials recall. "I hope the builders can guarantee that that truck won't return," said Nancy Carville, chairwoman of the Planning Commission at a meeting Monday night.

The Easttown Planning Commission has recommended that the supervisors approve an application by Realty Engineering, Wayne, to relax a 150-foot setback requirement at the southern end of the Waynesboro Woods property at 801 Darby-Paoli Rd., Berwyn. The recommendation is subject to final approval by township engineer Surender Kohli. The original plan for Waynesboro Woods was approved some time ago. However, upon finding that three of 111 townhouse units at the southeastern end of the development encroached on wetlands, Realty Engineering sought to move the units rather than lose them.

Craig Darby scored an early goal, but Craig Charron's two third-period goals were too much as the Phantoms fell to Rochester last night, 3-1, in American Hockey League action. The loss is the second straight for the Phantoms, their only back-to-back losses of the season. In the nets, the Phantoms' Neil Little stopped 29 of 32 shots. Darby's goal was his 17th of the season and Peter White notched the assist. For Rochester, the top affiliate of the Buffalo Sabres, the offense was led Charron's 12th and 13th goals of the season, and Matt Davidson's third.

Michael Vick had a setback yesterday in his attempt to return to the lineup this weekend. An Atlanta Falcons teammate stepped on the quarterback's right ankle in a walkthrough. Vick, out since fracturing his right leg in a preseason game Aug. 16, was unable to participate in team drills during the 2-hour afternoon practice. According to team orthopedist Andrew Bishop and trainer Ron Medlin, Vick did not sustain further damage to his right foot. They added that Vick rolled his ankle after taking a snap and trying to step to his right as his foot was caught.

The Lower Merion Zoning Hearing Board has denied a request by the Christ Haven Pentecostal Church of Ardmore, which was seeking to make a temporary parking variance permanent. The three-member board voted unanimously in a special session Monday afternoon to deny the request of the Rev. William F. Todd, pastor of the 21- member congregation, who was trying to make permanent a variance granted in March 1984. The variance allowed the church to open without providing off- street parking.

As a skillful politician, District Attorney Lynne Abraham is sure to attribute every new setback to retaliation for scuttling Judge Frederica Massiah-Jackson's nomination to the federal bench. If she runs for mayor, her mantra will sound something like this: I'm trying to fight the good fight against crime and drugs, but people are getting back at me and by getting back at me, they're getting back at you the people I am trying to serve and protect. This argument may resonate, especially among crime-beset African-Americans - even though black leaders have called the DA's opposition to Massiah-Jackson racially motivated.

Former West Catholic High star Curtis Brinkley said yesterday he is hurting, and he wasn't just referring to his broken right tibia. The Syracuse running back met the media for the first time since suffering the injury Oct. 20 in the Orange's win over Buffalo. Leaning on a pair of crutches, the junior made his way into the cafeteria where the players conduct their weekly interviews and spoke candidly about the latest setback in his star-crossed college career. "Physically and mentally, I'm in a lot of pain right now," said Brinkley, who had started every game this season and was Syracuse's second-leading rusher a year ago. "It's another setback.

The first editing of the Phillies' bullpen blueprint has occurred. Cross out Jeff Brantley's name from the setup role. Move Wayne Gomes up one slot. Add a second question mark behind the names of Scott Aldred and Carlos Reyes. The Phillies can only hope this doesn't get too messy before it's all over. Brantley, who left his appearance in Jupiter on Tuesday because of a cramp in his triceps, will be examined by club physician Craig Morgan in Clearwater today. Even the normally ebullient righthander acknowledged he no longer has his sights set on being ready by Opening Day. "I would venture to say that's probably not going to happen," he said.

A Willistown resident spent more than an hour before the Zoning Hearing Board on Tuesday night trying to change the township's notion of where his front yard lies. Kevin Galbraith of Horseshoe Lane argued that what the township is calling his front yard is actually his side yard. The argument was to support the construction of an outbuilding with a 25- foot setback from the front-lot line - a setback 50 feet short of the minimum required by a township ordinance. Galbraith submitted an application for a building permit three months ago. He said he hoped to build a two-story outbuilding with a patio and pool.

TO STEAL a saying from the late, great Harry Kalas, "Jahlil Okafor, you are the man. " Saturday's news that Joel Embiid will need yet another surgery on his right foot, thus shelving him for another season, thrust the No. 3 overall pick into the spotlight and is a serious hit to "The Process. " "After receiving the input of [many] medical experts, as well as conversations with Joel and his representatives, there was careful consideration given to a number of options related to this particular situation," general manager Sam Hinkie said in a statement Saturday night.

IT WAS A DAY of speculation concerning the navicular bone in the right foot of 76ers center Joel Embiid. Saturday, of course, the team sent a statement that a CT scan showed that the healing in the 7-footer's foot wasn't as far along as anticipated. While a source told the Daily News  Monday the organization was still gathering information from different doctors, other reports ran the gamut from Embiid needing surgery, to not needing surgery, to possibly missing the entire next season.

Joel Embiid's basketball career - at least in the immediate future - might be in jeopardy. The 76ers center has had a setback in the healing of his right foot, the team announced Saturday night. The news comes after the 7-footer missed the 2014-15 season with a stress fracture in the navicular bone in his right foot that he suffered last June. General manager Sam Hinkie said in a statement that a recent CT scan, performed in Los Angeles, revealed less healing than anticipated at this point.

Today's home buyers - millennial first-timers and everyone else, it seems - are looking for houses in move-in condition. Move-in translates to houses with no expensive problems. Even though credit remains rather tight these days, home buyers are opting to take on larger mortgages rather than take on the work required by shells or fixer-uppers they can purchase more cheaply. Among older resale houses, one issue that keeps coming up is old wiring, especially the first-generation electrical system known as "knob and tube.

Chais Hill hadn't run next to anyone in the 55-meter hurdles until the Meet of Champions in February. The Highland senior had set a meet record in the Group 2 indoor state championship, when he ran a 7.34, the 11th-fastest time in state history. But two hurdles into the Meet of Champions final, he was neck-and-neck with Nottingham's Alex Borzelin. The two made contact. Hill didn't clear the third hurdle and fell to the ground. It was officially ruled a "did not finish. " "I've never seen it," Highland coach Bob Wagner said.

Joel Embiid lit up the Internet on Friday night after the 76ers posted videos on social media of him throwing down between-the-legs dunks. By Monday night, the question was whether those dunks caused the 76ers' cornerstone player to reinjure his surgically repaired foot. A report Monday on the Calkins Media website said Embiid had experienced a "minor setback" in his rehab and apparently was wearing a walking boot again. The Sixers were not available for comment. Embiid had surgery to repair the broken navicular bone on his right foot on June 20. Surgeon Richard Ferkel, who performed the operation in California, could not be reached for comment Monday night.

When she practices, Haley Parks circles the three-point arch. She starts in the corner and takes 20 shots. She moves over a few steps and takes 20 more. And she continues that way around the court, trying to build comfort wherever she is. Comfort, as Parks describes it, has been elusive throughout her injury-riddled high school career. But for the first time since she tore her anterior cruciate ligament as a freshman, she has found it. Through five games, the senior guard is averaging 27.6 points per game for the Delsea girls' basketball team.

A group of Haddonfield civic activists has won the latest round against a redevelopment project in the borough's Gill Tract section. Next is a likely court battle. By a vote of 8-1, the borough Planning Board rejected a proposal to divide 605 Warwick Rd. into three parcels and leave most of the large stone house standing on the property, slightly more than an acre. The decision Tuesday night followed a meeting that lasted more than four hours and was hailed by the Haddonfield Neighborhoods Association, which has been fighting to block the plan for several months.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - You could hear Jeremy Maclin's frustration. In the midst of his two best practices of training camp, often with one of the NFL's best cornerbacks covering him, the Eagles wide receiver pulled up lame Wednesday, after snaring a 50-yard touchdown pass from Nick Foles. Chip Kelly's music has been muted for scrimmages against the Patriots, so when Maclin walked to the sideline and yelled a few choice words to himself, they carried 50 yards to where reporters were stationed.

WASHINGTON - Three hours after the trade deadline came and went, the Phillies' best hope at adding some new, young pieces to their roster before the end of the 2014 season took the mound at Nationals Park. Cliff Lee has long been admired by many a major league team. He's been one of baseball's best pitchers over the last half-dozen years and he's a proven playoff performer to boot. In order to move to a contender in August, when players can still be traded if they clear through waivers, which most players with hefty contracts are able to do, all Lee had to do was take the mound a few times and show that he was both healthy and effective.
