During the preseason last year, Sun Valley basketball coach Bob Hamilton said he was blessed with one of the best backcourt combinations in the Del-Val League. He had senior guards Mike Carrafa and Ed Crowley to lead the Vanguards, but he was worried about his frontcourt. This year, Hamilton has three outstanding frontcourt players returning in center Scott Donald and forwards Bill Hamilton and Jeff Brower. But he's not sure who will man the two backcourt spots. "We have an experienced frontcourt, and we will look to them for scoring and leadership," Hamilton said.

No one could blame Joe Walsh if he was a little discouraged at the end of last season. As a first-year coach at Sun Valley, Walsh had inherited a once-proud football program that had gone a mediocre 4-7 the previous year. Then, under his leadership, the Vanguards proceeded to lose eight games in a row before getting their new coach his first win. But even though he has only a handful of experienced players returning, Walsh thinks the worst is behind him. "It's going to take us a while before we really come together, but I know the kids better, and we feel more comfortable with each other," Walsh said.

The Sun Valley Vanguards eased their way to a 93-36 Del-Val win over the Harriton Rams Friday. But the thing that stood out in Vanguards coach Bob Hamilton's mind was his bench. "The key thing was that the bench people played very, very well," Hamilton said. "The people who came off the bench outscored the starters. " In all, 11 Vanguards posted points. Scott Donald paced Sun Valley with 17 points, followed by Mike Carrafa with 15 and Greg Bradson with 11. "We played well within ourselves and our style.

Chichester senior centerfielder Jaymie Ganster accepts that she is not the same softball player now that she was at the beginning of the season. And that is fine with her. In her last five games, Ganster has been batting at better than a .600 clip, and she has had two straight three-hit games. The latter performance, a 3-for-3, four-runs-scored effort against Sun Valley on Thursday helped the Eagles to a surprisingly easy 12-1 five-inning victory. Her batting average is now well over .400, and her mental outlook has taken an about-face since the time she was the leadoff batter who was striking out and having trouble making contact for much of April.

For years, the teams in the Del-Val League have been considered a notch below the squads in the Central League, and the reason has usually been that the Central League has superior pitching. This year is no exception, with Upper Darby's Kim Sammartino, Conestoga's Amy Antonelli and Marple Newtown's Heather Ericson helping to maintain the Central League's reputation for excellent pitching. But lately, a couple of fastballers from the Del-Val have been just as impressive. Sun Valley senior Kim Bauer displayed her improving fastball by striking out a career-high 11 batters and giving up just 1 hit in the Vanguards' 18-5 win over Academy Park on Thursday.

Sun Valley's Lisa Hughes played with a red, swollen welt under her left eye. Teammate Sondra Sipple, wearing a splint on the ring finger of her shooting hand, couldn't play at all. That was the condition of the Vanguards' girls basketball team before it met the Penn Wood Patriots in a game for sole possession of first place in the Del-Val League. Afterward, there weren't any noticeable new injuries - except for maybe bruised egos. In the spacious Sun Valley gymnasium, the Patriots overcame a 14-point second-quarter deficit to post a dramatic 45-43 victory over the three-time defending league champions.

Sun Valley appeared out of it after one quarter. The Vanguards trailed Unionville, 19-7. They were disorganized, yelling at each other and having problems stopping anything the Indians did. Just as the Vanguards teetered on the brink of being blown out, they righted themselves in time to come back and win, 29-26, Friday night. The victory helped Sun Valley improve to 2-2 overall and 2-1 in the Del-Val League National Division. Unionville fell to 2-2 overall. The game did not count against its Del-Val American record.

It's a simple rule in baseball: Don't get behind in the count against a good-hitting team. Sun Valley's Brady Schlack knows that, of course. But with his curveball unreliable at times, a struggling Schlack tried to throw too many fastballs past too many good hitters from Chambersburg yesterday. The results were predictable. "I felt like I was throwing batting practice out there," Schlack said, after Chambersburg beat the Vanguards, 12-7, in the first round of the PIAA Class AAA state baseball tournament.

West Chester Henderson defeated Sun Valley, 4-0, yesterday in the Vanguards' final regular-season Constitution League girls' soccer game. Now Sun Valley must wait to find out if it will be chosen for the District 1 tournament. Sun Valley slipped to 10-7-1 overall and 8-7 in the league's American Division. The Vanguards finished in a tie for third place with West Chester East. Vanguards coach Mike Williams said he hopes his team's record is good enough to get it one of the 12 berths in the district tournament.

Vanguard closed to new shareholders one of its most popular dividend mutual funds Thursday, saying it topped out at $30 billion as yield-hungry investors sought to earn income on their portfolios. Current investors in the Vanguard Dividend Growth Fund can still put money in, but new investors are out of luck. It's yet another sign that dividend-paying stocks have become the new bonds. Currently, 300 of the S&P 500 index companies yield more than the 10-year Treasury note, a phenomenon that has not occurred since 2009, according to data from asset-management firm Nuveen.

YOU MIGHT HAVE heard that the Philadelphia committee hosting the Democratic National Convention, and in charge of fund-raising, is refusing to say who is funding the convention. Transparency isn't their thing. The committee, named PHL 2016, went as far as calling its fund-raising list a "trade secret. " Which is - well, the only word that comes to mind is hilarious . Former Gov. Ed Rendell , who is chairman of the DNC host committee, has defended the decision to withhold donor names before the convention next month.

When investors think of Vanguard, they think of index funds. But the $3 trillion mutual fund giant oversees more than just low-cost passively managed benchmark funds linked to the S&P 500 and other indexes. New Vanguard fund launches in the U.K. on Wednesday highlight how the low-cost king of mutual fund investing is expanding its footprint overseas - continuing to extend its low-fee brand to active management as well, in what may be a test-run at product launches back home. Currently, out of its total $3.2 trillion in assets, $2.2 trillion that Vanguard manages for investors is in index funds.

Vanguard founder John Bogle has come out in support of the new fiduciary-duty requirement governing retirement plans, calling the U.S. Department of Labor regulations the "first step" in a movement he has been advocating for decades. "Today, we're at the beginning of an arc in finance toward fiduciary duty," Bogle, 87, told a conference Tuesday at the National Constitution Center hosted by the Institute for the Fiduciary Standard, which has long advocated for fiduciary responsibility on Wall Street.

Don't you wish someone would do this for you?   California Assemblyman Mike Gatto, a Los Angeles Democrat who is backed by labor unions, says he sympathizes with the little guy fighting unfair systems. "When a whistle-blower comes forward, they are usually doing a very good job for society," Gatto told me. But that's not how he felt last winter, when Gatto read an online commentary about how Vanguard Group, the Malvern-based private company that runs the nation's largest and fastest-growing mutual fund operation, might owe "billions" in unpaid income taxes.

A few thousand Vanguard investment customers thought they had made some extra bucks on Monday. But it turned out to be a software glitch: Vanguard account holders who were checking their balances on Apple iPhones, iPads, and Apple Watches - in short, anyone using an operating system on an Apple device - briefly experienced inflated values. "A few thousand out of our 20 million clients" were affected, according to Vanguard spokeswoman Katie Hirt. Hirt said 16 percent of customers who visit the company's website Vanguard.com do so through an Apple device and application.

The Securities and Exchange Commission has filed a "friend of the court" motion arguing that David Danon, the former Vanguard Group tax lawyer who says he was fired for complaining about billions of dollars of federal and state income-tax underpayments by the Malvern-based mutual-fund giant, is entitled to whistleblower protection under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010....

For seven years in a row, U.S. investors have sent more money to Vanguard Group, the world's largest mutual fund company, than any of its rivals, says fund-tracker Morningstar Inc. The Malvern-based company now controls 5 percent of every stock exchange-listed U.S. company. Yet Vanguard doesn't act like other dominant U.S. companies. Instead of boosting prices, as Apple iPhone users and Comcast Xfinity-watchers suffer most years, Vanguard continues to cut its fees, already among the industry's lowest, according to Morningstar.

An IT employee at Vanguard Group, Rebecca Snow asked for a month off in 2013 to care for her dying mother in hospice and her ailing father. Not long after her leave, Snow was fired from her computer systems job, despite 13 years of raises and excellent reviews. Colleagues who took a family leave routinely suffered bad reviews, pay cuts, and firings, Snow alleged in a suit she later filed. Her manager Wanda Kirschbaum urged Snow to take the leave, and was also later fired. "I felt bad because I was the one who encouraged" Snow to take the leave, Kirschbaum said in a deposition for Snow's suit, "because they held it against her. " In November, Snow settled her suit, filed in Charlotte, N.C., where Vanguard has an office, and agreed not to discuss it. Her case is the latest in a string of 20 suits against the $3.4 trillion investment giant, which is based in Malvern.
