Two-thirds of the way through the making of our first holiday video, revelation came to my wife. She'd seen me take the roles of producer, director and narrator, and suddenly it hit her. "Up to now I had thought I'd avoided the adage that women always marry men like their fathers," she sighed, flopping on the couch. "But seeing you behind the camera . . . well, you're just like him. " Maybe it was the way I'd set up the opening sequence: Fire in the fireplace, tweed jacket, rocking chair, cat in the lap and my onerous opening line, "Welcome to Masterpiece Christmas.

Caln Township plans to hire a contractor who will use a video camera to search for underground leaks in the municipal sewer system. The Board of Supervisors, at its meeting Wednesday, gave township manager Sam Moore permission to proceed with the plan. Moore said after the meeting that workers recently found an abnormal amount of water in sewer pipes in the western side of the township, indicating seepage of groundwater into the 18- year-old system. Using a video camera to search for leaks is a common practice, Moore said, and the township has hired such contractors several times in past years.

A Chester man was arraigned yesterday on charges that he had routinely burglarized the sanctuary at St. Agnes Roman Catholic Church on East Gay Street, stealing the votive offerings parishioners left as donations to the church's charitable programs. "I was saddened - also a bit annoyed, but mostly saddened - that someone would be so desperate that he violated the church and the prayer of our people," said Msgr. Thomas Craven, the church's pastor. Police officials said Richard Edward Greene, 39, of the 3200 block of West Ninth Street, had broken into the sanctuary seven times since January, taking the small amounts of money that parishioners left near the candles when they had come in to pray.

For their spring break from Haverford College this month, Milagros Bague and Cesar Rosado - like thousands of other college students - headed south to a warmer climate. Their destination, though, was not one of the usual March gathering spots. And their purpose was definitely not fun in the sun. They carried pencils - thousands of pencils - to Cuba. They also took a video camera. They distributed the pencils in an elementary school. They used the camera to tape a documentary about life on the island after the breakup of the communist bloc of nations, particularly the Soviet Union, and the lingering effects of the 32-year-old U.S. embargo on Cuba.

Accidental drug deaths among whites, women, and people ages 35 to 44 are much higher and rising far faster in Pennsylvania than nationally, according to a detailed analysis released Thursday that covers more than three decades. The examination by researchers at the University of Pittsburgh goes well beyond the already worrisome data showing that the state's overdose fatality rates have exceeded the national average by more than 50 percent in recent years. Between 1979 and 2014, for example, U.S. death rates rose sixfold, data from the National Center for Health Statistics show.

It's nice to know there are people in Hollywood who regard TV as a laboratory - and not a rest home for tired ideas. The latest evidence of this is a new summer sitcom airing tonight at 9:30 on Channel 10 called "Wish You Were Here. " The CBS series stars Lew Schneider as a young businessman who packs up his video camera and heads for adventure overseas. The gimmick: Schneider sends video "letters" back to his friends in the States. The offbeat sitcom is part of the lackluster network's efforts to lure viewers during the traditionally low-rated summer months.

A Chester County DJ who was charged with 300 counts of sexual assault and child pornography in April allegedly also raped and filmed a woman last September who thought she was being hired for a modeling job, the district attorney's office said Tuesday. Daniel Milowicki, 28, a self-employed photographer and disc jockey who uses the name DJ Dan Dub C, was out on bail when he was arrested for a second time on July 16 on rape and other charges, said District Attorney Tom Hogan. Milowicki routinely worked at events such as children's pool parties, birthday parties, and school dances, as well as at weddings, bars and other events, police said.

To improve safety, Amtrak will install video cameras to monitor the actions of engineers in locomotive cabs, Amtrak chief executive Joseph Boardman said Tuesday. The use of such cameras has beenurgedfor five years by the National Transportation Safety Board and opposed by the engineers' union. The cameras will allow managers and accident investigators to review engineers' actions. Similar cameras, facing outward from the front of the locomotives, already are in place. The action is the second major safety move by Amtrak after the May 12 derailment of Train 188 at Frankford Junction in Philadelphia killed eight people and injured about 200 passengers.

MORE THAN 30 cops from the 22nd District in North Philadelphia hit the streets with a new piece of equipment yesterday - a body-mounted video camera - as part of a six-month pilot program, the end goal of which is to roll out body cameras department-wide, a police spokesman said. The support for on-officer cameras has gained momentum nationwide in light of the unrest that has resulted from the shooting of Michael Brown by a police officer in Ferguson, Mo. However, Philadelphia Lt. John Stanford, a police spokesman, said the timing of the trial run of six on-officer camera models over the next six months was merely coincidental.

ATLANTIC CITY By next year, Atlantic City police officers could for the first time patrol streets of this resort town with miniature cameras mounted on their lapels recording every interaction with the public. About 10 to 20 officers, including members of the K-9 and tactical units, could be outfitted with the devices, which are about the size of a deck of cards, in about 90 days, Deputy Chief William Mazur said. Depending on the success, the patrol division of the 314-member department could also eventually be equipped with the cameras, which also function as radio microphones.

IN MINNESOTA, George Griller claimed he was unable to kill, dismember and bury a man because he was blind. He was exposed as a liar when detectives left the interrogation room and a video camera caught him as he opened his eyes - and read. In Washington, D.C., a homeless woman was charged with murdering a federal employee after she confessed, but a detective later discovered she had an ironclad alibi. He reviewed the interrogation video and realized that detectives had inadvertently fed her details of the crime, which she repeated to them.

FROM A decorated police lieutenant caught cold-cocking an unarmed woman to a wild wedding brawl captured on camera by a 15-year-old tourist, Philly videos scored big numbers at the YouTube box office in 2012. If seeing is believing, even veteran lawmen were shocked when they saw a little girl fight off her abductor and, in another video, a group of teen girls attack a mentally challenged woman in her own home. The viewing material ventured into R-rated territory when cameras caught a cabbie with his pants down and a chanting family at a suburban high school with no pants at all. Perhaps, in some quiet, bizarre corners of southeastern Pennsylvania (ahem . . . Delco)

  Marc J. Leder - an exceedingly rich man who oversees $8 billion in capital - likes Mitt Romney, the Republican presidential nominee. Romney is his old friend. Romney helped him get into private equity. So Leder, a 1983 Wharton School graduate and a co-owner of the 76ers, hosted a fund-raiser at his Spanish Mediterranean mansion in Boca Raton, Fla., in May. The price was $50,000 a plate, a long way from Dollar Dog Night at the Wells Fargo Center. Romney spoke earnestly, spoke passionately - and assumed he was speaking privately.
