The Glenolden Youth Club has been exempted from Glenolden Borough's requirement that sports teams using borough fields provide liability insurance coverage for their players. At the council's regular meeting Thursday, borough solicitor Edward Zetusky Jr. said he had met with youth club officials and their attorney Tuesday, and had decided that the borough would not be exposed to liability if someone connected with a youth club event on borough fields were injured. The council unanimously voted in favor of the exemption, prompting applause from about 25 people, all connected with the youth club, who attended Thursday's meeting.

As soon as the CD track dropped, the teens got on their feet. They knew this tune, rotated for months on local hip-hop radio stations and music video shows. The catchy lyrics to "Wobble Wobble" urge women to wiggle their backsides - "Wobble, wobble / Shake it, shake it / Drop it, drop it / Take it, take it. " The "booty-shake" music of a Southern rap group, the 504 Boys, boomed from speakers set up in a field at Ditman and Margaret Streets in Frankford. But the words were not theirs.

Ernest Weldon Reid, 83, who opened a small deli in South Philadelphia in the 1960s and suddenly and unexpectedly found himself running a club for hundreds of area youngsters, died Sunday at Graduate Hospital. Mr. Reid was a wiry, gray-haired man with a serious expression; a love of cards, jokes and young people, and a belief that crime is committed by bored kids, not bad ones. He also believed in action. "Once you admit you care," he once told a reporter, "you're obligated to do something about it. " To the thousands of youngsters who drank sodas in his deli, at 1225 Fitzwater St.; played on the baseball, basketball and football teams he started, or leaned on him for advice, Mr. Reid was "Fess," short for Professor, the name he gave himself.

The Phoenixville Marion Youth Club will have access to athletic fields for one more season, club president Harry Dawson said. Box King Products, the company that leased the club 1.6 acres on Second Avenue, told club officials that the company had reversed an earlier decision not to extend its lease. The youth club has used the field for at least 15 years. But the company decided to end the agreement, citing liability concerns. The club had expected the borough to acquire the land through a swap of property with Box King, but in an unexpected reversal by the Phoenixville Borough Council on July 10, the swap was rejected.

Area residents opposed the day-care center because of concerns about increased parking, traffic, noise and the safety of children playing outside the building.
