Residents said the development would not match the area's bucolic character. And now township officials considering the proposed CVS pharmacy at North Wales and Township Line Roads have agreed. The township Zoning Hearing Board Monday night rejected a bid by developers to build the pharmacy amid the large, wooded properties along North Wales Road. The 3-0 vote received a standing ovation by the crowd of about 50 residents. "It's a terrible approach to the township," said Walter Schlosser, who lives on North Wales Road near the property.

It's been closed for six years, but the Kriebel Mill Road Bridge may be reopened yet. The township supervisors have decided to determine what it would take to repair the bridge and how much it would cost. Water damage and a crumbling road surface forced closure of the bridge in 1987, Township Secretary George Lewis said. The span is actually a stone dam with a pipe going through it and the road on top, said Township Engineer Joseph Nolan. "It's going to have to be completely rebuilt.

In what may reflect the growing power of grassroots movements, the owner of Cedars Village Shops has pulled the plug on expansion plans. Owner Mike Clement told Township Manager Charles Sardo Wednesday that he would withdraw initial plans he had filed with the township for necessary rezoning to knock down five small shops and a large barn on the site, at the intersection of Skippack Pike and Bustard Road. The township should receive a letter any day now to that effect, Sardo said yesterday.

Protest signs have begun to dot the landscape here as the Zoning Hearing Board considers whether to grant a special exception for an Amoco station and food store at Township Line and North Wales Roads. Kim David, representing Friends of Worcester, said about 30 "Say No to Amoco" signs prepared by the group have been displayed by disgruntled residents. The group says a gas station and convenience store would give a bad impression to visitors and rob the township of some of its rural character.

Around here, dozens of cornfields yawn into wide expanses broken only by historic farmhouses. But nearby are signs of development: the naked frames of $500,000 custom Colonials; sprinklers squirting onto 2-acre lots; traffic queued on a two-lane road. Now, another piece of prime farmland is destined to fall to grass seed and hammers, but this plot of about 45 acres will not be the site of another housing development. Rather, it will be home to the 266-year-old township's first large public park.

The quaint Cedars Village Shops at Skippack Pike and Bustard Road may undergo a grand transformation. A bit too grand, if you ask some of the locals. Initial plans call for demolishing the large barn and five tiny shops scattered on the site and replacing them with nine larger buildings. A few pine trees would be cut down to make way for the new structures, but shrubs would be added as compensation. For the Friends of Worcester, a grassroots group of about 65 families that advocates keeping the area more rural than commercial, such expansion would be too much.

Hello there Andrew's friend Gump was not yet ready to leave for the Phillies game, so Andrew watched Gump's digital photos roll by on a screen in the kitchen. Andrew knows a lot of the people Gump knows, but, most unfortunately, he did not know the beautiful blonde in one of the pictures. "Who is that?" he asked when his friend appeared. That, Gump said, is Erika - a civil engineer who lives in Manayunk. "She's a lot of fun - outgoing and successful. Your type. " That day in spring 2009, Andrew, a software salesman who also rehabs and rents houses, asked Gump to talk to Erika about him. Then they left for the game.

The three ninth graders huddled over the algebra problem: Which summer job would be more lucrative for their teacher's son? "Explain your reasoning. Show all work that supports your effort. Write a note to Mr. Knittle, telling him which is the better offer, and convince him to take that job," the assignment read. "Make sure you COMPLETELY explain how to change this into a mathematical exercise that everyone can understand. " The bar is high at this small public high school, and the hurdles are unusual.
