State Rep. Todd Stephens on Thursday joined an increasingly crowded field of candidates for attorney general in 2016. In the Republican primary, Stephens is to face off against a fellow Montgomery County legislator, State Sen. John Rafferty, who announced his candidacy in June. Stephens, of Horsham, is in his third term representing eastern Montgomery County. In an interview Thursday, Stephens said his decision to run was spurred by the allegations of leaking and lying that have plagued Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane in recent years.

Jordan Hicks has lined up at middle linebacker this summer with Mychal Kendricks on one side and Nigel Bradham on the other, and there is little question or variation about the starting trio in the Eagles' base defense. The depth at the position has been an issue since the spring, without legitimate competition for the starters and a lack of experience throughout much of the depth chart behind them. That could change if the Eagles add veteran free-agent linebacker Stephen Tulloch.

Hello there The pretty woman Steve kept noticing in Kutztown University's library wasn't quite a stranger: He knew that her name was Lauren and that his friends were her sorority sisters. It was a start. In early 2011, one of those friends gave him Lauren's phone number. He wasted no time using it. "This is Steve Gerber," he said by text. "Would you like to have lunch with me?" "Thanks, but I always brown-bag it," Lauren wrote back. Cue sad trombone. "I thought she blew me off," Steve remembers.
