SINKING SPRING, Pa. - For two years, the most visible struggle within Mark and Megan Short's family had been the angst, then joy, poured out in Facebook posts when their youngest daughter received a heart transplant at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia when she was only 6 days old. Willow Short was, in the words of her mother, "one amazing little miracle who beat the odds!" Now investigators, neighbors, and others are left trying to understand the more pernicious struggle - an unseen powder keg of apparent domestic conflict - that left the 2-year-old, once expected to die in the womb, dead alongside her brother, sister, and parents in their Berks County living room.

The first time he competed in the U.S. Amateur, Kyle Sterbinsky still was about a month away from starting 10th grade at the Peddie School. Hitting his first tee shot of the 2012 championship at Cherry Hills outside Denver was an encounter with which he was not familiar.

ISSUE | CAMPAIGN 2016 Political revolt? A Signe Wilkinson cartoon showed Donald Trump being sworn in as president on his book The Art of the Deal with a quote from its pages: "I play to people's fantasies" (Friday). It might not be "people's fantasies" at work; it might be their frustration and anger with Washington. This campaign cycle is filled with the same rhetoric and the same promises of reform from the political establishment on both sides, except for two outsiders.

Zach Woods, the Trenton-born, Yardley-bred star of HBO's Silicon Valley , roused the ire of many a Philadelphian last month when he said Philadelphia is "kind of a racist city" on Marc Maron's WTF podcast. Adding insult to injury, he referenced a mishmash of memories about fan behavior: "When I was growing up and Santa Claus would skate onto the ice around Christmastime at Flyers games, people would throw batteries at Santa Claus," Woods told Maron. Uh, nope. "I totally get how I sound like some B-list moron bashing Philly," Woods said about the podcast.

Harry and Susan Armstrong flip houses. To date, the Pitman couple have flipped 15 - eight in recent years, after their children were grown. All but one of those flips has been in Pitman. "You do what you know," said Harry, publisher of the Golden Times, which he describes as a regional newspaper for seniors. But this is not about house-flipping, which Harry said he and Susan do as padding for retirement. "We're not professionals," he emphasizes. That isn't to say I'm not going to squeeze in a few of his observations about flipping at some point, since I'm again getting inquiries from wannabes.
