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.

Pete Mackanin tried to keep a straight face Friday afternoon, hours before the season's second half began with a 5-3 loss to the Mets, when he asked a question to which he well knew the answer. "What are we out of the wild card?" the Phillies manager said. Six games, an onlooker in his office replied. "Six games?" Mackanin said. "Why not? Let's set our sights high. " He stifled laughter. This was not to insult his team, which has been outscored by 89 runs in 91 games and overachieved in almost every area, but out of incredulity that it even served as a talking point in mid July.

Given Atlantic City's ongoing fiscal crisis and other negatives making news, some might think the town's casinos have given up on innovation and improvement. Investments in new attractions have decreased, but six of the town's eight gambling dens have added amenities as we head into the summer of 2016. Nowhere is that more evident than in the realm of dance clubs. By the middle of June, there will be two new state-of-the-art danceterias under casino roofs, Premier Nightclub at Borgata and Kiss Kiss A Go-Go at Tropicana, as well as Wav at Philly developer Bart Blatstein's ocean-straddling entertainment complex, the Playground.

The Philadelphia School Reform Commission has come up empty in its bid to undo a recent, devastating state Supreme Court ruling that curtailed powers it thought it had. The state's top court Monday turned down the SRC's request to reconsider a ruling it handed down in February that said the commission had no power to suspend parts of the state school code. The court said that a provision about special powers in the law that led to the state takeover of the city schools in 2001 was unconstitutional.

HOOKSETT, N.H. - Bernie Sanders, the self-described democratic-socialist senator from Vermont, defeated Hillary Clinton in the New Hampshire Democratic primary Tuesday, dealing a setback to what once seemed to be her inexorable march to the party's nomination for president. The result, called by the Associated Press, was expected. Sanders had enjoyed a healthy lead in the polls in New Hampshire for months, and the main question heading into the voting seemed to be how big his victory would be, or whether Clinton would outperform expectations and keep things close.

SAN JOSE, Calif. - Sean McDermott was fired by Andy Reid on the Tuesday after the end of the Eagles' 2010 season. The year ended with a playoff loss in January. Almost no one knew for days besides the two men. Reid wanted to keep it a secret. He wanted McDermott to have another job before the firing became public. It didn't quite work out that way. The news leaked four days later, but McDermott, in the interim, had already interviewed with the Broncos and Panthers. The former Eagles coach wanted to protect the then-36-year-old defensive coordinator.

TRENTON - A little-known New Jersey board charged with ensuring that state mandates are paired with funding sources on Tuesday called into question the 2014 state law that requires police departments to outfit newly purchased patrol vehicles with dashboard cameras. The Council on Local Mandates, responding to a complaint from Deptford Township, said it would place a temporary injunction on the law because implementing it could cause "irreparable harm" to the township and others like it. A formal order halting the mandate is expected within weeks.

PHOENIX - On Monday night, Maikel Franco put on a power show, launching the longest home run by a Phillies player in more than three years. Like the 455-foot home run on contact, Franco's National League Rookie of the Year candidacy was just taking off. Last night, Franco was writhing in pain on the ground a few feet behind the batter's box after getting hit by a pitch in his first at-bat. And, at first, it looked bad enough to wonder if the rest of his 2015 season was in jeopardy.

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.
