Developer Bart Blatstein said Monday that he is withdrawing his appeal of the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board's decision in November to license a rival casino application in South Philadelphia, saying an appeal could take too long and there has been "significant" interest in his North Broad Street property. The gaming board rejected Blatstein's proposed Provence casino complex at Broad and Callowhill Streets, the former location of The Inquirer and Philadelphia Daily News, and two other casino proposals, Market8 and Casino Revolution.

Pennsylvania State University's board of trustees will debate Friday whether to join a lawsuit against the NCAA, which sanctioned the university in the aftermath of the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal, a board member said Thursday. In the midst of a heated exchange over procedures for calling special meetings, trustee Richard Dandrea said the board would spend time - probably quite a lot of time - discussing and then voting on a resolution that would have the university oppose the NCAA in the lawsuit filed by State Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman (R., Centre)

The former solicitor of the Coatesville Area School District will be sued over alleged overbilling of the district, joining the former superintendent and former athletic director as a target of litigation. The Coatesville school board voted Tuesday to sue James Ellison; his former law firm, Rhoads & Sinon; and the law firm he formed, Susquehanna Legal Group, to recover money that board members say is owed the district. A Chester County grand jury report released last month accused Ellison and his law firms of overbilling the district.

The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities staff has reached a settlement approving Exelon Corp.'s $6.8 billion merger with Pepco Holdings Inc., the parent company of Atlantic City Electric (ACE). The settlement, which requires the approval of the BPU, would provide $62 million in bill credits for ACE customers, a $15 million energy-efficiency program, and commitments to improve the utility's reliability performance to levels that exceed current BPU requirements. Exelon would also maintain ACE's operational headquarters in Mays Landing and match for 10 years the utility's 2013 level of $709,000 in charitable contributions and community support.

At this point, opponents have to know how it's going to be. A Temple shot goes up - maybe a corner three, even a fastbreak layup - and one Owls player must be accounted for. It may not matter. "I hope - I feel like that should be in the scouting report," Jaylen Bond said Sunday in a hallway of the Liacouras Center. "That they do their best to try and box me out. " Bond suffered a sprained ankle just before the season began, which probably kept people from seeing exactly what Temple had in the transfer from Texas early on. It's obvious now, beyond Sunday's big offensive showing, when Bond hit 10 of 15 shots for a career-high 21 points, scoring 13 of Temple's first 19 points as the Owls beat Central Florida, 84-78.

Jamal Holloway says there's nothing scientific about his uncanny rebounding prowess. He doesn't study the angle, distance and trajectory of every shot and calculate the best position on the court to collect the carom. "I can't explain it," said Holloway, a junior at Camden High School. "I just go get the ball. " Although he's listed at 6-foot-3, Holloway might be the best rebounder in South Jersey. His coach, John Valore, compares him to former 76ers great and Hall of Famer Charles Barkley.
