West Chester, a quaint college town nestled in Pennsylvania's Brandywine Valley, is a trip back in time. Its quiet neighborhoods are leafy and green, its hip downtown is bustling with activity, and cars actually stop for pedestrians. The stylish boutiques and restaurants inhabiting the town's historic architecture make West Chester look like a postcard of Main Street, USA - stamped with cosmopolitan flair. But it wasn't always this way. It was only a few years ago that new businesses started to crop up along the streets of West Chester's once bleak downtown.

AirTran adds $15 first-bag charge AirTran Holdings Inc. added a $15 fee for the first checked piece of luggage, joining larger carriers including Delta Air Lines Inc. in charging for the service. The change takes effect for travel on Dec. 5, the Orlando, Fla.-based company said yesterday in an e-mailed statement. The move by AirTran shows that even discount carriers haven't escaped the effects of slowing travel demand and a weakening economy that have forced many airlines to seek new sources of revenue.

EMMITSBURG-- --Jim Deegan was multi-tasking and networking decades before the terms appeared in a dictionary. In summer 1956, Mount St. Mary's hired Deegan to coach cross country, soccer and track and field. He is completing his 50th and final school year at the university, although he will remain in some capacity, in straw hat and sandals, fiddling with a sprinter's form or debunking some of the tales told about him. Deegan stories will flow at a dinner in his honor tomorrow, and his farewell is the main reason the Northeast Conference championships are being conducted here this weekend.
