Bill Wohl can talk. For 15 years, he's made a living pitching, spinning and answering questions as a public relations specialist. He's worked in sporting goods, in software - he's even represented two governors. But Wohl can save more than someone's reputation. When he's not talking, he works as a volunteer emergency medical technician. At the West Grove firehouse, he's captain of the ambulance company. And Wohl combines his various skills as president of the Chester County Emergency Services Council.

Routinely thrashed opponents of Levittown Western's American Legion baseball powerhouse often must think they are competing against Levittown and the Rest of the Western Hemisphere. To be eligible to play, do these kids have to produce not only birth certificates, but green cards? "Everybody thinks we have this huge area (from which to draw players)," said coach Bill Kramer. "But in our own league, we have only the fourth- biggest territory. Morrisville, Newtown, Northampton - those three are bigger than us. "We do have excellent players from several different areas, but it's not like we get everybody.

Less than a week after the Kennett Fire Company opened an ambulance substation along U.S. Route 1 at the eastern edge of Kennett Township, it has been evicted. Patrick Kennedy, a consultant for Kennett, said the fire company leased the site for its ambulance and staff through tenants of the building, not the owner. When the owner got wind of the arrangement, it was terminated because of concerns about zoning and other issues, he said. Tenants of the building at 1104 E. Baltimore Pike refused to answer questions, as did the owners, who according to county records are Bart J. Rowley 3d and Joanne Neiwanski.

The ball came from 35 yards out, on a strong, low, direct kick by Devon Prep's Ciaran Barrett, and quickly curved toward Garnet Valley keeper Dave Nicholl in the goal mouth. Nicholl stepped out to gather in the ball, but before he reached it, Tide midfielder Brian McKinney sneaked in from the far side and redirected the ball, making Devon Prep history. "I just tapped it," McKinney said of his 16th goal of the season, and certainly his most important. Devon Prep's 2-1 overtime win over the Jaguars on Tuesday night at Haverford High pushed the Tide into uncharted territory.

Supervisors Monday night gave their mixed blessing to a county plan to redistribute territory among ambulance companies in the township. The Longwood Fire Company, which started operating an ambulance service at the beginning of the year, wants to serve territory in East Marlborough and other townships that previously was handled by the Unionville Ambulance Company, the Kennett Ambulance Company and Good Fellowship Ambulance Company in West Chester....

There has been a wreck. Someone is lying injured on the highway. And an ambulance is needed - fast. Getting that ambulance to the scene as quickly as possible is the rationale behind new ambulance service territories that the Chester County Board of Commissioners is expected to adopt today. All changes will be adopted simultaneously by the commissioners acting as the county's Regional Emergency Medical Services Council, but it will be several months before the changes go into effect because of the time it takes to reprogram county computers, said Commissioners Chairman Colin Hanna.

Hey, Northeast Philly, prepare to feel the love. As one-half of the newly reconfigured 13th Congressional District, a territory that used to be all Montgomery County, you have what two outsiders who want to represent you in Washington desperately need: votes. To get them in November, incumbent U.S. Rep. Joe Hoeffel, a Democrat from Abington, and Flourtown ophthalmologist Melissa Brown, the victor in Tuesday's 13th District GOP primary, intend to spend a lot of time shaking hands in territory largely unfamiliar to them.

From my window, I watch the cat as he sets out on his appointed rounds. He stops to inspect the bird feeder, moves on to the asparagus bed and then, gingerly, steps around the wasp mound. Having staked out this territory, he assumes his morning post among the peony leaves. This cat - my daughter's cat and my grandcat - arrived here weeks ago, caged and collared and thoroughly citified. He was driven up the East Coast through megalopolis to the countryside where he encountered grass as a deeply suspect foreign turf.

Two weeks ago in Dallas, it was holder Tom Hutton who took the blame for a devastating Eagles defeat. Last night at the Metrodome, it was punt returner Mark Seay. Seay unwisely tried to field a wildly bouncing Mitch Berger punt deep in Eagles territory with 7 minutes, 10 seconds left in the third period and muffed it. Vikings safety Greg Briggs fell on the ball at the Eagles' 16-yard line, and the Vikings scored the winning touchdown two plays later. Seay took full responsibility for the loss.

Longwood Fire Company vice president Bradford Bowman says that for years people had been asking him this question: When are you folks going to get an ambulance? Bowman said the issue didn't hit the front burner until Southern Chester County Emergency Medical Services (SCCEMC) came knocking on the door asking to rent space for its new medic unit - a kind of emergency room on wheels. The firefighters struck a deal with SCCEMC earlier this year, and then figured the time was ripe to go into the ambulance business themselves.

Here's a feel-good economic story. It's still being written, and it won't have a storybook ending, but given that it involves Washington, we should be thrilled it doesn't end in tragedy. Puerto Rico is the story. The island's finances and economy are a wreck. The territory's government and public institutions have amassed a stunning amount of debt over the years and are now choking on the principal and interest payments. Last year, the island shelled out 40 percent of its tax revenue making these payments, compared with 5 percent for the typical state.

DEAR ABBY: For the last five months, I have been talking to a guy I met via a dating app. We live a few states apart and have yet to meet in person, but we communicate regularly. With my tax refund this year, I'd like to do something for me. He suggested that I visit him. I don't get any red flags from him, and I'm sure I'd be 100 percent safe while I'm there. However, I'm anxious about taking a trip by myself to visit a guy I've developed a massive crush on. I have thought about offering to pay his way here instead, or simply not going at all. I asked my friends and family for their opinions.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Sen. Bernie Sanders gave a lively speech that pounded his message about income inequality to a packed house Tuesday night at Pennsylvania State University. And he pounded his rival for not sharing transcripts of paid speeches that he said must have been "Shakespearean prose. " Thinking ahead to next week's Pennsylvania primary, Sanders spoke even as New Yorkers still were voting in that state's primary, where polls closed at 9 p.m. Hillary Clinton trounced Sanders there - but when he took the stage in Recreation Hall just after 7, he noted that it was too soon to know the night's victor.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Yesterday, you felt determined; today, the motivation wanes, which is a good thing. It will help you move to the next ideas, which are packed with potential energy. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). No one is better at being you than you. Today, other people will tell you what you should do, how you should feel, and whom you should love. It's ridiculous really. Your best move? Ignore them. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It feels like the doors of the banquet of life have opened to you on this, the first day of your new diet.

When I showed up with my bag of groceries at Wiggins Prep Elementary School in Camden, my plan was to teach these fifth graders how to make a healthy quesadilla. When I mentioned the Mexican fast-food favorite, I got blank stares. "Don't you go to Taco Bell or other take-out Mexican restaurants?" I asked. They all shook their heads no. "Then I am going to introduce you to quesadillas," I said, thinking I was lucky they didn't know the greasy, cheesy, high-fat, panfried ones, to compare with the oven-baked ones we were making with whole-wheat tortillas, lean meat, and apples.

Only once did I ever worry for my safety as a Mets fan in Philadelphia. It was the day of the Phillies' 2008 World Series parade. Oblivious to the citywide party kicking off outside my front door, I wore, as I always did, my Mets ski cap on my way to work. Across the street, a big guy in Phillies gear with a woman on each arm spotted me. I'll never forget the look on his face - shock, turned to horror, turned to fury. He left the girls behind, sprinted through traffic to cross the street, and pointed his finger in my face.

It might not seem true, but not everything is targeted at millennials. TV Land, born as an offshoot for Nick at Nite's reruns of classic TV, has been trying to reinvent itself as a hub for sitcoms geared toward Gen Xers, the once-ballyhooed generation now smack-dab in the middle of adulthood, looking to escape their ever-growing bundles of joy with a little TV. That strategy works exceedingly well for the The Jim Gaffigan Show. Starring Gaffigan, the King of Clean Comedy, it premieres at 10 p.m. Wednesday.

The sports draft, devised 79 years ago in Philadelphia because Bert Bell knew his Eagles couldn't otherwise compete, is a curious institution. Without one, wealthy teams such as the 1927-1964 New York Yankees can dominate. But with one, shrewdly run franchises such as the 1957-69 Boston Celtics can do the same. Though its worst-goes-first structure is meant to level the playing field, the system, as tank-ful 76ers fans understand, can still be manipulated. To preserve parity and integrity, leagues have tinkered constantly with their drafts.

Imagine buying a car and never doing routine maintenance. That's pretty much the case with Pennsylvania's charter-school law, which was passed back in 1997 and hasn't been touched since. In the meantime, the world of charters has changed dramatically. In 1998, charter enrollment in the state was just a blip on the screen. Today, 120,000 students statewide are enrolled in bricks-and-mortar or cyber charters, among them 67,000 students in Philadelphia alone. While charter operators and school boards disagree on many things, they both believe it is time to update the law. Last year, a bipartisan commission came up with a series of recommendations for a new law. Bills were duly introduced in the House and Senate, and that's where the issue has sat all year.

" Long, 70, of St. Paul, Minn., is one of 42 consecrated virgins from across the country attending the U.S. Association of Consecrated Virgins' annual convocation, being held for the first time at the Malvern Retreat House in Chester County.
