A for-profit Philadelphia education firm whose records recently were subpoenaed by federal authorities has settled a lawsuit with three former teachers. Documents filed in court Wednesday said the instructors who had been laid off by Delaware Valley High School had reached a settlement with that embattled company, which runs alternative-education programs for school districts in the area. In a suit filed in the Court of Common Pleas in March, the three said they were owed nearly $20,000 in back wages for their work at Delaware Valley's former disciplinary school on Kelly Drive during the 2010-11 academic year.

There was a magical presence in the air at Lackawanna County Stadium last Thursday that wasn't present at Arlington Stadium in Texas. On the same night Texas Rangers pitcher Nolan Ryan lost a chance for his sixth career no-hitter on a one-out ninth-inning single by the Detroit Tigers' Dave Bergman, the Delaware Valley baseball team was attempting to gain a berth in the gold-medal round at the Keystone Games. There wasn't any Bergman in the Delaware Valley lineup, however. And all the magic was in the other team's dugout.

Josh Tyler hit a three-run homer and scored four runs and John Leith pitched six-hit ball over six innings as Delaware Valley crushed Philadelphia, 19-3, at Lafayette College yesterday in the opening round of the scholastic baseball competition in the Keystone State Games. Delaware Valley took a 4-0 lead in the bottom of the second inning by capitalizing on the wildness of Philadelphia starting pitcher Dave Miller. Ed Rush led off with a walk.

The Philadelphia and Delaware Valley baseball teams in the Keystone State Games opened play against each other yesterday, just like last year. And Chestnut Hill Academy's David Miller and West Chester East's John Leith were the starting pitchers, just like last year. The result, however, was nothing like last year. Riding the left arm of Miller, Philadelphia won, 5-3, at Allentown's Bicentennial Park, avenging a 20-3 defeat of a year ago. "I just wanted to get a little revenge," admitted Miller, who struck out seven and walked four.

ABOUT AN HOUR after Sunday's game, three players remained in the Eagles' locker room. One of them was Carson Wentz. The giant media flood had trickled away. A few equipment guys were packing stuff into bags. Wentz walked around, drained a blue Gatorade, paced some more, grabbed a water bottle out of the cooler, then ambled over to where the offensive linemen dress, near the showers and the restroom, and leaned against a doorframe. Didn't the Eagles' rookie quarterback have anywhere to go, after authoring a 29-10 victory over the Cleveland Browns in his first NFL start, and sending half the Delaware Valley out to the mall to look for No. 11 jerseys?

SOME FOLKS simply aren't ready for college when they come out of high school. Delaware Valley's Shawn Miller was one of them, even if it took him a while to realize that. So eventually, his life and football career had to take a two-year detour. And even though there's no way he knew it at the time, that move turned out to be probably the best thing that ever happened to him. In every way. "It was a maturity thing," said Miller, a junior defensive back from Laurel, Del. "You're going from being a big fish, the man, to a place where there's a whole lot of other guys in the same position.

Gabby was a singer. At 8 years old, she also was sassy. "Gabby had an attitude!" one cousin said. But she was also caring, and loved fiercely those she knew. She loved to ride her bike, to play. And the Camden little girl had just agreed to try cheerleading. "Gabby was very smart," her mother, Meresa Carter-Phillips, said. "She was an honor-roll student. She loved to read; she loved to write; she loved to sing. " Gabrielle Hill Carter was playing outside Wednesday night on the sidewalk across the street from her house on the 900 block of South Eighth Street in Camden when several men opened fire on another man. The girl who had earlier been singing Michael Jackson was hit by a stray bullet.

ISSUE | BILL LYON TRIBUTE Fund-raising and Phillies I have read with great interest the five-part series by retired Philadelphia Inquirer sports columnist Bill Lyon as he bravely shared his journey with Alzheimer's - the most common type of dementia - and its effects on not only him but the people he loves. Alzheimer's, which affects 5.4 million Americans, is the nation's sixth-leading cause of death and the only one in the top 10 that has no cure, means of prevention, or way to slow it. As president and chief executive officer of the Delaware Valley Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association, I admire Bill's courage tremendously, so we have teamed up with the Inquirer's parent company, Philadelphia Media Network, and the Phillies to honor him with Alzheimer's Night at the Phillies Salutes Bill Lyon, Aug. 3, at Citizens Bank Park.

A teacher at beleaguered Delaware Valley Charter High School has asked the Philadelphia School District's top financial official to reconsider withholding $820,000 in payments to the school this summer. The district said the charter school in Logan owes the money for overbilling for students in past years and failing to make required pension payments for teachers. But Matthew Black, 27, who has taught math at the school for two years, said it's the teachers and other staffers who were hurt when the charter could not make payroll last week.

The Philadelphia School District told the troubled Delaware Valley Charter High School in Logan on Thursday that the school will not receive any payments this month for students and only a partial payment in August - a loss of more than $820,000 that threatens the operation's payroll. Uri Monson, the district's chief financial officer, said the charter's interim CEO was told that the district would be withholding the payments to recover money the charter owes for overbilling for students in past years and failing to make required pension contributions for teachers.

Moody's Investors Service downgraded $32 million of Delaware Valley University debt to junk-bond status, citing deteriorating financial performance caused by stagnant revenue from students and the Doylestown school's decision not to adjust its expenses. Despite the ratings reduction to Ba1 from Baa3, the outlook remains negative because Moody's expects it to be difficult for Delaware Valley to break even and maintain stable liquidity in the near term. Nearly all of Delaware Valley's financial measures tracked by Moody's deteriorated in recent years, according to the June 30 Moody's report.
