The Philadelphia Phillies are off to a slow start and the fans, especially the talk-show variety, are asking for wholesale personnel changes. However, American Legion baseball doesn't get the same attention and even though Southampton is off to a shaky 1-8 start in the Lower Montco American Legion season, head coach Rich Lennon doesn't feel any pressure to make any drastic changes. "We have a very young team and I really didn't expect us to get off to a good start," said Lennon.

Residents in Southampton and in Shamong will have the chance to speak out Tuesday on a proposal to save money by merging the two townships' municipal courts. Southampton's township committee will hold a public hearing on an ordinance, introduced Jan. 5, calling for Shamong to dissolve its own court and use Southampton's facilities and staff. And in Shamong, Mayor Rosemary "Mitzi" Stinsman plans to introduce a similar ordinance the same night. "We think it's a good thing," said Southampton committee member John S. Hicks.

Mayor James Young's attire was the first clue that Saturday's Township Committee meeting was going to be a bit different. Dressed in a red-and-black-check wool suit, the Southampton mayor, who was busy greeting residents as they entered the township's Old Town Hall, looked like an extra in The Music Man, and his colleagues on the board, Robert Moore and John Hicks, looked alike in their plaid suits and straw hats. "Welcome to the year 1845," said Young. The township solicitor, Stacey Moore, sporting a gray morning coat and top hat, seemed ready to try out for the role of U.S. attorney general - for the Polk administration.

After several twists and about-faces, the murder case against Stephen Headley effectively ended Tuesday when he agreed to accept a potential 50-year prison term for fatally stabbing a South Jersey woman two years ago. Flanked by family and friends of Nicole Ayres, 22, an ace high school and college softball pitcher, the Southampton man calmly pleaded guilty to the Sept. 13, 2010, attack and told a judge he understood he likely would serve at least 42 1/2 years without parole. Counting time served, Headley, 30, would be over 70 before he could be released.

The township has hired its first-ever administrator. The first one, that is, who will not serve simultaneously as mayor. James R. White, 38, who is currently administrative director in Bensalem, Pa., is scheduled to start in Southampton on Aug. 1 at a yearly salary of $55,000. The township has been without a full-time administrator since January, when Mayor William D. Conner quit his second job as "office manager" - the equivalent of administrator. That practice began in 1987 with Mayor Robert L. Thompson.

Even in kindergarten, Lisa Marino knew how to deal with her cystic fibrosis, said Danielle Westfall, her friend for 35 years. "From the time she was 5, 6 years old, she knew when to take her medicine," Westfall said, and together in school, "we would walk down to the nurse. " Walking down the corridor, she seemed like anyone else. But through the years, Westfall said, "she knew when she was getting rundown. She would say, 'It's time for me to go see my doctors.' " The condition, Westfall said, "never defined her. It was something she dealt with every day, like brushing her teeth.

The morning of March 27, 2011, smoke and flames drove brothers Andrew and David Wallace and Andrew's girlfriend from their apartments above the family-owned Churchville Inn , a landmark in Southampton, Bucks County. "There were three walls left standing," said their father, Jeff, last week, as the landmark reopened (1500 Bustleton Pike, Southampton, 215-357-3967). The main dining room is spruced up with a mural, crafted from barn wood by Murrie Gayman, that depicts historic events and people from Bucks County history.

Saying they want "to protect residents" from a commission that had the authority to order them to remove dangerous trees on their properties, the Southampton Township Committee has voted unanimously to replace the group with an advisory committee. The Shade Tree Commission "shouldn't be able to tell residents what to do with their private property," Committeeman Ron Heston said Wednesday, after the 5-0 vote Tuesday night. The committee created the commission 43 years ago but only recently learned it had such power, Heston said.

One died in a South Jersey tent, ignoring offers for shelter. The other had a roof over his head in Philadelphia's western suburbs, but may have lacked the resources to keep the home heated. Nothing about Eugene Powell, 59, and Kenneth Williams, 73, appeared to link the two men except the bitter cold that played a role in their deaths this past week. Each also may reflect segments of society that become particularly vulnerable when the temperature tumbles: the homeless, the elderly, the infirm.

The flames filling the building singed the hair of Officer Albert Costantini and clogged the air with smoke so opaque that he couldn't see more than a few inches in front of him. The heat rolling off the fire melted Officer Frederick Williamson's flashlight when he stepped through the window. But, within moments of entering the burning Bucks County home that night in December 2012, Southampton police officers Costantini and Williamson rescued a man who was trapped inside as the fire climbed his walls.
