The Tredyffrin/Easttown Youth Soccer League is starting a travel team program for boys and girls this fall. This marks the first time in the league's 12-year history that teams will compete in travel leagues. "It's a natural outgrowth of the program," said Jim Bierman, president of the league, which has more than 1,500 children in the youth soccer program. "It will provide additional soccer at a more competitive level for kids who want it. " But Bierman stressed that it would not replace the Saturday League soccer that has been played in the community since the early 1980s.

Community Voices asked readers how the latest terror threat was affecting their packing and their travel plans, short-term or long-term. John Chambers Lansdowne The latest terror alert is not impacting my travel plans. I have not flown since Sept. 11, 2001. Security procedures are too restrictive. I am not a criminal. If the airlines and my country plan on treating me like one, I choose not to fly. I was taught that we were the country of citizens that were free and brave.

GRAHAM SPANIER wants a judge to allow him to travel outside of Pennsylvania. It is, after all, the holiday season and the former Penn State president wants to visit his mom, who is sick and living in Chicago. He also has relatives in Iowa he wants to see, and there's that second home in New York that he hasn't been to in a while. Last month, however, Spanier was charged with covering up complaints that former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky had showered with minor boys in facilities on Penn State's main campus.

DEAR ABBY: Many women like surprises. Most men don't. My wife can't understand that. She recently "surprised" me by informing me she had made nonrefundable arrangements for us to visit a foreign country. She said I had once mentioned that I'd like to see it. I have no recollection of saying so, but I suppose it's possible. Abby, I am physically barely able to endure such travel. My balance is bad, and walking is extremely painful. I wish she would have discussed her plan with me in advance.

Sisters Paris and Nina Merin never envisioned elaborate weddings for themselves: Paris, 35, had been trying to talk her boyfriend, Charles Maxey, into eloping; Nina, 31, thought a quick trip to the courthouse with longtime boyfriend William Papa and their 2 1/2-year-old daughter, Vienna, would work just fine. But when Nina finally got engaged early last year, and Charles surprised Paris with a ring that April, their mother had another suggestion: a modern take on a double wedding.

Despite a debt crisis in Europe and uncertainty over the global economy, travel demand from businesses and consumers is holding up. Airlines reporting 2011 and fourth-quarter earnings in recent days - generally beating analysts' estimates - said 2012 was starting off strong. "It appears that the underlying economy is better than the macro headlines would lead you to believe," US Airways Group Inc. president Scott Kirby said. The second week in January is typically the busiest booking week of the year, Kirby said, as leisure travelers start planning spring-break and summer vacations, and business travelers return from the holidays and plan their initial trips in the new year, Kirby told investors.
