Downingtown St. Joe’s parish members in shock after sudden resignation of pastor

Venmo is known as “PayPal for millenials,” a peer-to-peer payment service that lets 20-somethings split the cost of dinner or a concert or a date without exchanging actual cash. It’s part bank transfer service, part social network, and very popular with the “shared economy” age group. So what was Monsignor Joseph McLoone, a middle-aged man, doing with a Venmo account, wondered a staff member at St. Joseph’s Church parish office in January after stumbling onto McLoone’s photo and transaction history? And who were these people he was sending hundreds of dollars to?

West Chester University student, 86, works toward computer science degree

At age 86, Lowell Gardenhour is an inspiration to fellow students, veterans and staffers at the West Chester University community. Gardenhour, a U.S. Air Force veteran, is a junior majoring in computer science. He has taken one class per semester since 2008. He was one of only 186 Americans to lead a covert-CIA-spy mission in Indochina, which later became Vietnam, a decade prior to the Vietnam War.

Dwayne Wade turns back the clock in sparking Heat past Sixers

Dwyane Wade gave the Miami Heat a pep talk before they played the Sixers Monday. Someone had the guts to tell the Heat how badly they were destroyed in Game 1 of the playoff series. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said it wasn’t a Knute Rockne speech. What Wade said was real, judging by the Heat’s 113-103 victory over the Sixers, squaring their best-of-7 playoff series at 1-1.

Sixers notebook: Joel Embiid no closer to return, will need a ‘re-introduction’ to team

Already having missed the first two games of the NBA’s first playoff round, Joel Embiid is moving closer to missing the third … and more. Before Game 2 Monday against the Miami Heat, Brett Brown shared no word of progress from his training staff on Embiid’s healing left orbital bone. And since the Sixers’ coach hinted at only a non-contact practice scheduled for Tuesday, that would leave the All-Star center running low on available conditioning time for Game 3 Thursday night in Miami.

Teheran shines as Braves halt Phillies winning streak

Julio Teheran found his go-to slider for the first time since the Braves moved into their new home last season. Teheran outpitched Aaron Nola for a rare night of success at SunTrust Park and Atlanta snapped the Phillies’ six-game winning streak with a 2-1 victory Monday night.

Flyers’ Hakstol may or may not be pondering changes

Main Line entrepreneur does things ‘his Wei’

You would think that a 75-year-old entrepreneur with three massively successful businesses would be content and not want to burden himself with a whole new army of challenges and headaches. In the case of Michael Wei, you would be wrong.
