NCAA Comes Down on Penn State, Water Main Floods South Philadelphia, Father James Brennan Re-Trial
  by: iradiotom - Philadelphia, PA

The Joe Paterno statue came down yesterday at Penn State. And today the NCAA announced severe, punitive sanctions against Penn State because of the cover-up in the Jerry Sandusky scandal. Among others, Penn State will pay a $60 million fine which is equivalent to one year gross revenue from football, be banned from bowl games for 4 years, reduce football scholarships from 25 to 15 per year for 4 years. Further, all Penn State football wins from 1998 to 2011 will be vacated and the official season records will be adjusted accordingly. Obviously, changing Joe Paterno's record as a winning football coach.

Homes were evacuated for 4 blocks because of a massive water main break in South Philadelphia. The 48 inch main burst at 21st and Bainbridge around 9:30 last night. Basements were flooded and the water was so deep in the street, some residents were evacuated in boats. The water main was not shut off for over 4 hours.

Prosecutors have decided that Father James Brennan will be re-tried after the jury that convicted Monsignor William Lynn failed to settle on a verdict for Brennan. Father Brennan, 48, was charged with attempted rape and child endangerment for his alleged abuse of a 14-year-old boy during an overnight stay at the priests apartment in 1996.

The Phillies open a series at home tonight with the Milwaukee Brewers.

Isolated thunderstorms today. Around 90 degrees in Philadelphia.
