The Utah Jazz dangled a $3.8 million mousetrap in front of the 76ers' Julius Erving last summer. Mayor Wilson Goode, embattled at the time in a city trash strike, didn't like the bait. "Where is Utah, anyway?" the mayor said. Not close enough was the eventual answer. Erving signed a new one-year contract with the Sixers, then said this would be his final season in the NBA. So where, aside from being in the Spectrum tonight, is Utah, anyway? "The heart of the West," Detroit coach Chuck Daly said diplomatically.

Thomas F. Fisher, half of the two-man, anti-development ticket that upset the Horsham Republican Party candidates last year, plans to resign from the Township Council tomorrow, 18 weeks after taking office. At the end of the council's monthly formal meeting Tuesday night, Fisher, 47, said he was stepping down because his company was transferring him to Utah. "I've appreciated the voters putting their faith in me. I'm sorry I couldn't fulfill" the four-year term, said Fisher, who was sworn in Jan. 4. In an interview, Fisher urged the council to appoint Francis X. Walsh Jr., a member of the township's Zoning Hearing Board, as his replacement until the next council elections in 1989.

SALT LAKE CITY - The 76ers' hope was to get out of the Utah Jazz Summer League unscathed, but a late development has prevented that. Second-round draft choice Richaun Holmes took a nasty fall on his elbow in the second half of Thursday's game against the host Jazz. Holmes didn't return to the game, and assistant coach Billy Lange said afterward he was getting X-rays as a precaution. Those X-rays revealed that the Bowling Green product had fractured his right elbow. He probably will be shelved for a couple of months.

The Eagles picked a bad year to need a safety. Their ongoing search for stability at the position continues this week, although they're assessing a position that is considered one of the weakest in this draft class. Their plight is complicated by rigid demands at the position that narrow their draft possibilities. Traditional in-the-box safeties are not appealing to the Eagles. They want the two starting safeties to be interchangeable, so they search for versatile players who have the characteristics of both a strong safety and a free safety.

When she heard that Teresa Rose Greaves' remains had been recovered from a makeshift grave on a Utah hillside, Debbie Veevers cried for a classmate she remembered but barely knew. "I just felt so much compassion for this poor soul who had no one," says Veevers, an Oaklyn resident who graduated from Collingswood High School with Greaves in 1977 - and has raised $1,400 at Gofundme.com to have her brought back for interment in South Jersey. Greaves went missing in Utah in 1983; the Davis County Sheriff's Office is now investigating her death as a homicide.

In a ruling likely to have implications in Pennsylvania and nationwide, a federal appeals court said Wednesday that states cannot bar same-sex couples from marrying. In a 2-1 decision, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit affirmed a lower-court ruling declaring Utah's ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional. The opinion came amid a flurry of legal activity on the issue Wednesday, including a ruling allowing gay marriage in Indiana, filings in a Pennsylvania appeal before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, and changes to same-sex partner benefits in Allegheny County.

He was all alone, except for a dozen or so kids playing a football game on the turf below. He had a set of buds in his ears, a couple of ice packs on his knees and a faraway look in his eyes. This time last year, Jones was getting ready for Eagles training camp. The NFL is not calling this year, despite Jones again posting astronomical Arena Football League numbers.

MURRAY, Utah - Ricardo Portillo's daughters had begged him to stop refereeing in a soccer league because of the growing risk of violence from angry players. Now they're planning his funeral after he succumbed to injuries late Saturday that had put him in a coma for a week after a 17-year-old goalie punched him in the head. Authorities say the teen punched Portillo, 46, after the youth was called for a foul and issued a yellow card. "The suspect was close to Portillo and punched him once in the face as a result of the call," police spokesman Justin Hoyal said in a statement.
