When Terell Stafford was 12, he began taking viola lessons. Two or three months later, the teacher told his parents that he had absolutely no talent for music. The viola lessons ended. The youngster was not discouraged easily, though. Next he began playing around with the guitar, but that didn't pan out either. Then, at 13, having had it with stringed instruments, Stafford discovered the trumpet. He has been impressing people with his talent ever since. Stafford, a resident of Downingtown, has a brand-new CD out on the Candid label, Time to Let Go. It's the 28-year-old musician's first album as a leader.

When Jeff Stafford lost his job as a forklift operator in Easton more than a year ago, he went to a job placement center to find work. But the only job the counselor could offer was for $4.25 an hour. With a wife and two young boys, the 22-year-old Stafford said he had no choice. "I said I'd take it because I was desperate," he said last week. The job was with the Pennsylvania Conservation Corps, a state project developed in 1984 to help people between 16 and 25 years old who, like Stafford, face desperate economic situations.

Burlington County Freeholder Eugene W. Stafford was sworn in yesterday as mayor of Mount Holly during the council's annual reorganization in front of an overflow crowd that included members of his family and four other members of the freeholder board. Stafford is a member of the Mount Holly Township Council, which agreed, when elected in May 1986, to rotate the office of mayor among four members of the council for one year each during their four-year terms. Councilman Raymond Hoagland, who would have been eligible for a mayoral term, requested that he not be considered for mayor.

For some, aromas of Hunan seafood platters with shrimp, crab meat, scallops and lobsters make the nostrils quiver. Township Supervisor William F. Stafford thinks those smells stink. He says odors from the King's Island Restaurant, a Chinese restaurant in the Shoppes of Longwood about 300 feet from his property in Anvil Hills, have irritated him and his neighbors for four years. They took their complaints to the township's Zoning Hearing Board, only to be told that the township's existing odor ordinance was unenforceable.

It's melting away. Two months after banning ice cream-truck jingles with a controversial law that brought national attention and litigation to this Ocean County municipality, the Township Council reversed course this week and introduced a measure to rescind it. Though a final vote on the repeal will not come until May 19, it seems that Stafford's tuneless days will end before the real test - summertime - even begins. "I was surprised that they did this," Jeffery Cabaniss, an ice cream vendor who protested the music ban, said yesterday.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 15 of the 2015 season. Watch 'em roll Matt Stafford, QB, Lions at Saints. Stafford is a high-volume passer even against good secondaries, partly because the Lions can't run worth a darn. Expect Calvin Johnson to play a much bigger role in the Monday nighter as well. Denard Robinson, RB, Jaguars vs. Falcons. All indications are that T.J. Yeldon will miss this game with a knee injury, giving Robinson an opportunity to reprise his role as Jacksonville's dual-threat workhorse.

Only two men in the NFL have thrown more touchdown passes than Detroit's Matthew Stafford this season and their names are Peyton Manning and Drew Brees. That's a pretty good quarterback story even if few people in these parts are talking about it as the Eagles prepare for Sunday's big game with the Lions at Lincoln Financial Field. Eleven minutes passed Wednesday during a conference call with Philadelphia reporters before Detroit coach Jim Schwartz finally received his first question about Stafford.

Part of Jessica Prince's job at Widener University is to advise college seniors about managing their debt, so she was distressed to learn that Congress on June 30 allowed the interest rate on one popular type of federal loan to double, from 3.4 percent to 6.8 percent. "I don't think a college education should be a debt sentence," she said. This week, the House and Senate are likely to review several bills that may or may not relieve some of the extra financial pressure the rate increase will put on graduates.

On July 1, the rate of a subsidized Stafford student loan doubled to 6.8 percent from 3.4 percent, after Congress shut down for the Independence Day holiday without blocking a scheduled increase. If lawmakers fail to reach a retroactive agreement, the average Stafford borrower will have to pay back about $800 more than under the previous rate for every year of loans. The controversy in Congress reflects the magnitude of the challenge. Today, about 66 percent of students borrow for college.

WASHINGTON - President Obama on Friday urged Congress to prevent student loan rates from doubling in a month, prompting a fight with House Republicans who accused him of playing politics instead of sitting down to work out small differences and avoid an increase. Interest rates on new subsidized Stafford loans are set to go from 3.4 percent to 6.8 percent on July 1. Lawmakers from both parties say they want to avoid the increase but are divided over how to do so. Obama said that if Congress doesn't act to stop loan rates from rising, students would rack up an additional $1,000 annually in debt.

DETROIT - The Texans took advantage of a big mistake by Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz. Shayne Graham's 32-yard field goal with 2 minutes, 21 seconds left in overtime lifted Houston to a 34-31 win over Detroit on Thursday after Schwartz broke an NFL rule on a scoring play. Schwartz threw a challenge flag when Houston's Justin Forsett scored on an 81-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. Replays showed Forsett was down near midfield, but Schwartz negated the automatic review by challenging the play and was called for unsportsmanlike conduct.

Wondering whether to start Matt Ryan and Doug Martin, or to bench Christian Ponder and Arrelious Benn? Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 10 of the 2012 season.   Watch 'em roll Matt Stafford, QB, Lions at Vikings. He has performed well over the last two games, and has a solid track record against Minnesota, which has coughed up three TD passes and had no interceptions in the last two games against Russell Wilson and Josh Freeman. Stevan Ridley, RB, Patriots vs. Bills.
