Old Faces In New Places: Former Villanovans Continue Their Basketball Careers

SEPTA urges rail riders to look into work-week alternatives |
With structural failures found in one-third of its train fleet, SEPTA officials announced Monday they would post scaled-back schedules by day's end and urged regional-rail riders to consider other ways of getting around.
