All signs point to the recovery of the region's real estate market after nearly eight years in the tank. With inventory short, real estate agents report sales within percentage points of asking prices, and multiple bids on properly priced listings in move-in condition. Not everyone is benefiting, however. Ask Larry Golub, of Trevose; Gayle Whittle, of Oreland; and Wendy Wirsch, of Warrington. "We've had our home on the market for over three years now, with no showings for over seven months," said Golub, whose high-end manufactured home in Trevose cost $135,000 when it was new seven years ago. Price reductions for his "as-new home" - now listed at $92,000 - haven't helped, said Golub, who lives in the Neshaminy School District.

FACEDOWN ON the pavement with two pounds of pot in her trunk and a cop punching her in the side, Colleen Begley could have packed her bohemian lifestyle away and called it quits. The Moorestown native could have dimed out all her longtime friends for a lesser sentence, with the hope of someday returning to a cozy life in that affluent suburb, where she could finish college and get into her family's law business. At the very least, she could have moved to Northern California, where there'd be less heat.

In two days, Philly has seen the openings of two musicals about angsty, horny teenagers of yore, but there's a world of difference between them. Walnut Street Theatre presents an upbeat Grease , but Theatre Horizon gets a lot closer to the blackboard jungle with Spring Awakening . Here, Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater's celebrated adaptation of Frank Wedekind's oft-banned 1891 drama becomes an intimate hothouse for the blossoming of young lust....

Everywhere investigators went, every time they talked to an informant or questioned a suspect, one name kept coming back to them: Raymond Morales. It seemed that all the drug dealers in Camden were getting their cocaine from him. While his name was ringing out, no one would cooperate against Morales because he had such a terrifying reputation for violence. "He put the fear of God into people on the street," said Lt. Michael Mangold of the Camden County Prosecutor's Office.

After an hour above an empty sea, our 14-seater descended over scattered reefs, looped around a smoldering volcano and dropped down on a runway so short that each end overhung the sea. We had arrived on the Banda Islands, still known in many parts of the world as the Spice Islands in what was once called the Dutch East Indies. Separated by hundreds of miles from the main body of Eastern Indonesia's Moluccas, the islands of this group are so small that their size must be grossly exaggerated for them to show up on most maps.

Something is on the loose in Bensalem. Three times this week, frightened residents have reported a large cat - either a mountain lion or an ocelot - slinking through back yards near Bensalem High School. Local police are hunting the creature, using digital imaging and the expertise of the Philadelphia Zoo. Yet, police remain unsure of what exactly they're looking for. "No one has been able to give a clear description of it," said Fred Harran, deputy public safety director.

Laurence H. McCormick had been trying to sell his Grays Lane home in Montgomeryville for three years with no luck. It took a recent idea to subdivide the 2-acre property, at 100 Grays Lane, into three lots to seal a deal with developer William H. Heinrich of Quakertown. "Nobody wants a big lot with a small house anymore," said McCormick, who owned the home for 30 years. "They all want a big house on a small lot. " But for Heinrich to go ahead with the subdivision, he needs two variances from the Montgomery Township Zoning Hearing Board.

A Burlington Township ham radio operator will reach new highs thanks to a zoning board decision Wednesday night. The board granted David Johnson of Mill Lane approval to install a radio communication tower as tall as 100 feet in his back yard with a 35-foot antenna span at the top. "Amature ham radio is my hobby and I have been involved with the hobby for many years," Johnson said. Johnson told the board that he planned to install multiple antennas on the tower for increased performance.

It started with a single spark of compassion and unyielding determination. The year was 1883. Margaret Bancroft defied her father's orders, rented a small house on Chestnut Street, and, with just one student, started a school for the mentally handicapped. Now, Bancroft NeuroHealth, formerly the Bancroft School, provides educational, residential and job-training programs for hundreds with developmental disabilities and acquired brain injuries. Though based in Haddonfield, Bancroft has campuses and affiliates in Louisiana, Maine, Delaware and several towns in South Jersey.

There was trouble in the marriage from the start. "When we got married, he completely changed," she recalled. The woman, who fears her husband and asked that her name not be used, was barraged with verbal assaults, called "stupid," and told that she "couldn't do anything right. " The physical assaults started 11 years into the already-volatile relationship. "He would punch me," she said. And the abuse continued through 43 years of a marriage. A little more than a month ago, she mustered up the courage to leave.
