If you're looking for intrigue, try Ludlum or le Carre. Don't bother with the state Department of Community Affairs' (DCA) report on Warminster's governmnent. It has all the drama of a macro-economics textbook. The report - which some had hoped would spark a grand jury investigation - is full of recommendations and suggestions on how the township should be run. It was released this week and presented to the Board of Supervisors at Wednesday night's meeting. Warminster asked the state agency for the study after the township went broke last year.

It looks as if Warminster has Fort Washington's number. In a Lower Montco American Legion game that had 18 walks in just 5 1/2 innings (because of darkness), the Warriors got timely hitting and dropped the visiting Golden Generals, 5-4, Tuesday night at Munro Park. It was the second time this season that Warminster had beaten Fort Washington by that score. It was an ugly game that only Warriors coach Frank Fisher could love. Generals coach Lou Lombardo was so disenchanted with his team that he made everyone, including the scorekeepers, do 50 pushups after the game, and would not comment.

ISSUE | GOVERNING What if Washington closed for business? Though both state and federal governments are the targets of the offensive that E.J. Dionne calls "conservatism's increasingly ferocious opposition to government," the preponderance of these rants are hurled against the federal government ("Populist and pro-business," July 22). So it's worth recalling the benefits of our central government, effects that obviously safeguard and enhance the lives of all. The federal government keeps the air, water, and food supply free of contamination.

WHEN ARCHBISHOP Wood junior Ryan Bates was in seventh grade, he decided he was finished with football for good. It was too tough, required too much running and had just stopped being fun. So, after he told his CYO coaches he was finished, Bates returned to his dad's 1999 black Ford F-150 thinking the nightmare was over. You couldn't even pay him to play. "When I got back into the truck my dad had four $100 bills," said Bates, sitting inside the team's film room on the Warminster campus.
