Township supervisors have approved a bond issue worth almost $5 million to fund Warrington's open-space program. Money from the bond issue will be available in about a month, Robert Jones, the township's bond counsel, said Tuesday. Township voters extended Warrington's borrowing capacity in January 1997 when they approved a $2.1 million bond referendum. That borrowing power was used for this issue. Warrington announced its $4.5 million plan to preserve almost 12 percent of the land in the township as open space last month.

Motorists in Warrington could find themselves competing for highway space with horses and carriages Sunday. Thirty to 50 antique carriages will set off on a 4-mile trek through Warrington and the nearby woods at 10 a.m. Sunday. It will be the highlight of a series of events at the Warrington Lions Club Horse Show and Carriage Marathon this weekend. The show, marking its 30th year, is expected to draw 600 horses and riders from 14 states and Canada. And some of those horses will be taking to local highways for obstacle events.

Warrington is struggling to plan for its neighbor's growth. Although they envy Horsham's ability to attract two office parks, Warrington officials say they're worried that development beyond their southern borders will increase demands for housing in their township and adversely affect already crowded roads. "Horsham is a step ahead of us," said Supervisor Andrew J. Kaelin. "It looks like a good tax base for them, but this kind of action puts pressure on us. " The Horsham Planning Commission has given preliminary approval to the 280- acre Hidden Springs Corporate Center, proposed by Hansen Properties.

Neil G. Kyde Inc. is the wrong consulting firm to help Warrington choose a new insurance package, former township supervisor Randolph A Scott says. Kyde is the same firm that gave the township "imperfect" advice last year in recommending health insurance that would have violated the township's contract with the police department, Scott says. He spoke out Tuesday at the Warrington insurance advisory committee's meeting. Despite his objection, the three-member committee voted unanimously to hire Edward B. Snyder of the Kyde firm for the job. The advisory committee was appointed by the supervisors last month to analyze insurance proposals and recommend the most comprehensive and cost- effective health-benefits package for municipal employees and the police department.

They call it gerrymandering in politics. But in the world of Lower Montco American Legion baseball, it's called tough luck. Before this season, the Warrington entry in the Lower Montco league had been allowed to draw players from a small portion of Warminster Township. This year, the league's regional office took away that portion, thus deleting three players from coach Jack Toy's roster. "If it wasn't for the players themselves, we wouldn't have a team this year," said Toy, who also serves as an assistant baseball coach for Central Bucks East High School.

The Warrington Athletics, a sure bet to finish second in the Bux-Mont American Legion League, will enter the playoffs in search of a missing ingredient. "We have had a problem with consistency all season," Athletics coach Jack Toy said. "One day we look like a team that can't be beat, and the next day we look like we can't win a game. Our games with Doylestown and Pennridge recently is perfect evidence of that fact. " Warrington knocked off first-place Doylestown, 6-5, July 13 and followed that game with a 7-1 loss to last-place Pennridge on Monday.

At 2:30 Monday afternoon, catcher Stan Cinkowski called Warrington manager Jack Toy from the emergency room of a local hospital. "I don't think I can make tonight's game," was Cinkowski's grim message, explaining how he had just had seven stitches put in his leg as the result of a accident on his construction job. But Cinkowski showed up in the third inning, strapped on the catching equipment and crouched behind the plate, doing a workmanlike job...

Early on, back in the 1950s and 1960s, she studied dance with Sydney King and then became a member of Arthur Hall's Afro American Dance Ensemble.

From 1984 to 1992, she was press secretary for Mayor W. Wilson Goode.

The first morning in their new house, Rob woke up at 6:30 to find the lights on. He'd conked out before midnight the night before, after a day of hauling boxes, arranging furniture, and trying to occupy their kids - Taylor, then 4, and 2-year-old Savanna. Tina, it turned out, had never gone to sleep. She had spent all night arranging clothes in drawers, positioning picture frames on the walls, clambering up to the attic. She'd done 15 loads of laundry. It was Mother's Day, May 10. Their third child was due, via scheduled C-section, on the 14th.

LOUISE FAIRLEY CLAY was serious about entertaining, as evidenced by the 20 sets of china she accumulated over the years. But the dinners she loved to host featured more than good food. They featured laughter. "Laughter was a distinct feature of her dinner parties," said her granddaughter, Leah Smiley. "No games, no drama, no arguing, just good old-fashioned jesting. "It was easy to get offended at those family functions, but Louise would gracefully direct our attention and laughter toward herself.

All signs point to the recovery of the region's real estate market after nearly eight years in the tank. With inventory short, real estate agents report sales within percentage points of asking prices, and multiple bids on properly priced listings in move-in condition. Not everyone is benefiting, however. Ask Larry Golub, of Trevose; Gayle Whittle, of Oreland; and Wendy Wirsch, of Warrington. "We've had our home on the market for over three years now, with no showings for over seven months," said Golub, whose high-end manufactured home in Trevose cost $135,000 when it was new seven years ago. Price reductions for his "as-new home" - now listed at $92,000 - haven't helped, said Golub, who lives in the Neshaminy School District.

  Hide the picnic baskets. A black bear was spotted Friday morning in Bensalem near a wooded area along the Neshaminy Creek, a point several miles south of the last bear sighting in Warrington last summer. Bensalem police warned residents to stay clear of the animal as officials try to track it down. Last June, police captured a young black bear near the Valley Square Shopping Center in Warrington. The bear apparently had come to Bucks from New Jersey, crossing a bridge or swimming the Delaware.
