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.

Two former top deputies of Gov. Christie do not have to comply with "overbroad" subpoenas served by a New Jersey legislative panel investigating September lane closures at the George Washington Bridge, a judge ruled Wednesday. Even as Superior Court Judge Mary C. Jacobson in Trenton dealt a setback to the committee's investigation, she left open the possibility that the committee could issue subpoenas with more specific requests that do not violate the Fifth Amendment. She also ruled that the panel has the power to compel the production of documents by granting immunity.

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court on Friday declined to immediately overturn a Philadelphia judge's February decision that the current phase of the legal dispute between The Inquirer's owners belongs in the Delaware Court of Chancery. The concurrent appeal filed by owners Lewis Katz and H.F. "Gerry" Lenfest in Pennsylvania Superior Court will continue. The legal action in Delaware over how the company should be sold also proceeds. Vice Chancellor Donald F. Parsons will hear arguments April 14-16 in Delaware to decide the type of auction to be held to resolve ownership of The Inquirer and the rest of its parent company, Interstate General Media Holdings L.L.C.

LAKELAND, Fla. - Twenty-four days from today, in Arlington, Texas, two teams will take the field as living testaments to the importance of roster depth. In the home dugout, the Rangers, their rotation missing two of its top three starters, Matt Harrison recovering from back stiffness, Derek Holland on the DL with a knee injury. In the visitor's dugout, a team whose trials and tribulations increased yesterday with the news that lefthander Cole Hamels had hit a bump in his road to recovery from biceps tendinitis.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - The infielder was a month removed from Achilles' surgery, going about his daily rehab work and trying to keep a positive outlook. He relies on legs. His future is largely dependent on his legs' ability to recover and become strong again. Ryan Howard walked over to the kid last fall at the Phillies' state-of-the-art indoor training facility in Clearwater with some friendly words of advice. "Baby steps," Howard said. "You've got to keep a positive mindset.

Developer Carl Dranoff made news last week by detailing his plan for a 47-story South Broad Street hotel-apartment-retail tower. Dranoff was also in the news the next day, in three separate stories, none that would likely please him: Gov. Corbett's administration is cutting $12 million in aid proposed through the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program for Dranoff's apartment development in downtown Ardmore. The state said money in that program should go to public projects, like the nearby Ardmore train station.

GLENSIDE - Thanksgiving Day has passed, but don't tell that to Glenside's Ned Smith. His gratitude toward family and friends who have helped him since he suffered a stroke in 2011 is enough to last a lifetime. And the steps to recovery have blossomed into an unlikely musical project for the extended family. For years, Smith, 56, was in charge of scheduling the presses at the Schuylkill Printing Plant in Upper Merion, where The Inquirer and the Philadelphia Daily News are printed.

MAYOR NUTTER has for weeks been calling on City Council - publicly and privately - to move forward on Gov. Corbett's school-funding plan, but has yet to get a single member to introduce the legislation. City Hall insiders say it's emblematic of Council's sheer disregard for the mayor, who appears to lack even a single reliable ally to push his second-term agenda. "I've never heard of that before. Never," said Councilman Jim Kenney, a former longtime Nutter pal and ally, who finds the school-funding stalemate symbolic of the mayor's icy relations with Council.

  The odds seemed monumentally against textile designer Harshita Lohia's realizing her entrepreneurial ambitions. For starters, there was her father, patriarch of a conservative Hindu family in North India, where arranged marriages are common and young women are encouraged to work on babies, not business plans. Then, when Lohia was a junior at Moore College of Art & Design, a bicyclist struck her, breaking both her hands. Five years later, fire destroyed not only her Lower Makefield home, but Lohia's entire design portfolio, putting an end to a promising job opportunity and the work visa that was to come with it. "I never felt down," she said.

President Lyndon B. Johnson could read the signs of the end: growing disquiet over Vietnam, primary challenges from Eugene McCarthy and Robert F. Kennedy. On March 31, 1968, he got time on the three TV networks. "I shall not seek, and I will not accept, the nomination of my party for another term as your president," Johnson said. These days, some anxious Republican insiders in Pennsylvania want Gov. Corbett to pull an LBJ and withdraw from the 2014 gubernatorial race, forecasting a landslide loss for the party otherwise.

Good news, bad news for the aging Yankees: Derek Jeter is back on the DL, and Alex Rodriguez plans to return to the lineup Monday. The Yankees placed Jeter on the 15-day DL on Friday. He strained his right quad in his first game back with New York last week after being out all season with a broken left ankle. The 39-year-old Jeter singled on his first pitch in a major-league game this year as the Yankees beat Kansas City on July 11, but he left in the eighth inning when his quad tightened in his third at-bat.
