Citizens Bank has agreed to pay $115,000 to settle a complaint that it told a woman who was on maternity leave with full pay that she would have to return to work before the bank would approve a home-equity line of credit, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development said Friday. As part of the settlement of the alleged Fair Housing Act violation, Citizens Bank will pay the woman $40,000, provide fair-housing training to its staff, and make a $75,000 donation to a HUD-approved fair-housing or advocacy organization.

In times of trouble, you could find yourself in far more unpleasant places than South Philadelphia on a breezy summer evening listening to Paul McCartney sing Beatles songs. Which is what a privileged-to-be-there sold-out Citizens Bank Park crowd got to do Tuesday evening, finding refuge from the 24-hour bad-news cycle with the master of the cheerily melodic pop song just three nights after Billy Joel had filled the Phillies-stadium-turned-senior-citizen-rocker showplace, which will also host Bruce Springsteen later this summer.

SAN FRANCISCO - These days, the chatter about Citizens Bank Park as a bandbox is muted because the home team cannot hit for power. The ballpark gained its reputation more than a decade ago when robust Phillies lineups dumped high flies into flower beds. Pitchers from opposing teams complained; the effect became exaggerated. But earlier this month, when potent Toronto and Arizona lineups came to Philadelphia and bashed 17 homers in six games, it served as a reminder of how Citizens Bank Park has become such a disadvantage for the home team.

Home of the Phillies will become home of the Dragons on Saturday. For the first time in about two decades, Drexel University will hold a universitywide commencement ceremony, and its venue will be Citizens Bank Park. It's also a first for the park; the Phillies home field has never been used for a university graduation before. Instead of seeing Ryan Howard hit a home run, graduates and their families will get advice from commencement speaker Donna Shalala, former U.S. secretary of health and human services.
