Forty-nine years ago, Conshohocken leaders began crafting a comprehensive plan to transform the grimy old mill town into a modern, livable municipality, albeit a small one. At just over one square mile, Conshohocken is shoehorned into a bend of the Schuylkill River, but is within earshot of I-476 and the Schuylkill Expressway, two of the region's major arteries. It took several decades, but between the vision of past leaders and the impact of that pair of highways, Conshohocken has become one of the region's hottest neighborhoods, with sleek condo towers, destination restaurants and corporate headquarters along the waterfront, and a locally owned, family-friendly strip of restaurants, bars, and stores along Fayette Street.

A meeting of the Conshohocken Borough Council erupted in applause Wednesday night after the council voted, 6-1, against a zoning amendment that would have allowed a Wawa store and service station on Fayette Street. Wawa requested the amendment to allow a convenience store and 10-pump station in an area zoned for residential and office uses. The company can push forward, but will now have to argue before the zoning board. The proposal generated heated debate over the last few months, with community groups forming to lobby for and against the store.

'TIS THE week that college-admission offices send their official acceptance and rejection letters to hopeful applicants. Those cheers and groans you've been hearing are from high-school seniors wondering where they'll park their lives for the next four years. The din is almost - but not quite - drowning out the panicked cries of soon-to-be college grads. They must now pay back the truckloads of money they borrowed to pay for their pigskins. Their debt will swell the $1 trillion tab already owed by U.S. college grads.

A visit to Wawa and Sheetz stores in Bethlehem, one of the few places in Pennsylvania where the convenience-store chains compete, finds both committed partisans and practical choices. "I use them both," said limo driver Bob Stahley, gassing up at the Sheetz on Schoenersville Road in Bethlehem, across the road and just up the hill from the Wawa. "I like Wawa's soft pretzels. But this side of the road is on the way to New York. " "They copy each other," said Charles Beegle, in a Pirates cap, in his Cable Service Co. truck.

Pennsylvania divides a few ways: Phillies vs. Pirates. Democratic ex-factory towns vs. Republican ex-farming townships. Nittany Lions fans vs. everyone else. And Wawa vs. Sheetz - though that might be the least bitter rivalry: The state's two big gas-and-milk, Cokes-and-smokes, Tastykakes-and-store-built sandwich chains try not to fight. They're not like Ford vs. GM. Instead, they have mostly drawn lines and split the land between them. Like Comcast and TimeWarner Cable. Which you prefer depends on where you were raised: Wawa is Philly and the Shore from Jersey to Virginia Beach.

About 200 Conshohocken residents packed the Washington Fire House on Wednesday night to speak for and against a proposed Wawa store on Fayette Street between 11th and 12th Avenues. It was the third and final public hearing on the proposal, which opponents say would exacerbate traffic and ruin the small-town character of Conshohocken. At issue is a proposed amendment to the borough charter to allow the Wawa at a site zoned for office and residential uses. The Borough Council will vote on the proposed amendment April 17. Planners for the borough and Montgomery County have recommended rejecting the plan.

Two South Jersey men were arrested this week during a traffic stop in which Gloucester Township police say they found drugs and counterfeit money. Police say events began about 8:30 p.m. Monday during a motor vehicle violation stop on the Black Horse Pike at Clementon Ave, in the township's Blackwood section. The vehicle, which police did not describe, matched the description of a vehicle being used by men who were passing counterfeit bills at multiple area Wawa stores. Erik Ellison, 21 of Huntington Mews, Blackwood, and his passenger Robert A. Smith Jr, 49 of Newton Lane, Willingboro, were arrested on "numerous" outstanding warrants for their arrest.
