A party that followed the recent Radnor High School junior prom won't be forgotten by some of the revelers. Or by the Radnor police. Seven youths, ages 15 to 18, were cited for underage drinking; one was taken to the hospital for an overdose of alcohol, and several thousand dollars in damage was done to the home in the 100 block of Eaton Drive, where the party was held. And when parents were called to retrieve their children from the police station, some mothers castigated the police for interfering with the party.

The Rose Tree Media school board has proposed a new policy to trim transportation costs by eliminating busing to non-public schools on national holidays when the school district is closed. Rose Tree Media transports more than 3,000 students to the district's five schools and more than 1,200 students to 101 private and parochial schools. Though most private and parochial schools are closed on the same national holidays as Rose Tree Media, the district transports more than 400 students to 13 private and parochial schools that are open on the national observance of Martin Luther King's birthday.

For years my daughter has been urging me to write a piece about "the family tux," the tuxedo that two generations of Vick men have worn to weddings, proms, balls, and other formal events. It wasn't until a recent event that I knew I was ready to write it. To set the stage, you need to know that my husband grew up on the Main Line and attended debutante balls. When he was 16, his mother marched him into Jacob Reed, a very nice men's store, and bought him a tuxedo. I can only imagine his adolescent self being simultaneously annoyed at going shopping and excited by how debonair (a good 1960s word)

Whatever happened to those nights dancing under the stars, the ones hanging from the gymnasium ceiling? Are they are gone forever? Maybe at other schools, but not at Marple Newtown High School. Marple Newtown juniors rekindled that tradition this year and returned their prom to the high school gymnasium after more than 20 years. "It was a kaleidoscope of beauty," said junior class president Chris Voci. "I never saw so many people work so hard for one thing and create a lot of spirit and unity.

Bonnie Randa and the younger Council Rock players around her were almost, but not quite, enough. Randa, who decided Thursday to forgo attending her junior prom to play in the Indians' first-round PIAA Class AAA game, scored a team-high 15 points as her squad fell by 67-62 in overtime to Abington Heights yesterday at Scranton CYC. "They came and left everything on the floor," Indians coach Lou Palkovics said. Three other starters and two reserves elected to attend the dance, leaving the Indians to field a young team around Randa, who is the school's all-time leading scorer.

He was a singer who had roles in several school performances, and he did well academically, Anticoli said.

In a high school visit yesterday, Gov. Ridge praised students for discouraging underage drinking and said his proposal next week to sell the state liquor stores would be "conservative and responsible" - and could raise money for prevention programs. "The last thing in the world Pennsylvanians want is alcohol sold on every street corner," Ridge said in his morning visit to Bensalem High School. He declined to give details of the plan but told about 30 people - students, school officials and politicians - listening in the school's library to be wary of public speculation and to "stay tuned.

Cherokee High School students who attend the junior and senior proms each will receive a champagne glass, two dimes and a message, "Friends Don't Let Friends Drive Drunk. " The glass, the 20 cents (the money needed to call home for a ride) and the message are courtesy of members of Cherokee's chapter of Students Against Drunk Driving (SADD), who hope that the idea will deter students from drinking and driving at all times, especially during prom season. To help build awareness and thus help keep tragedy from striking, the 25 members of SADD on April 23 held a drinking awareness day at the Evesham Township high school.

When the Council Rock girls' basketball team travels to Scranton for its opening-round game in the PIAA state tournament tonight, Bonnie Randa, the school's all-time leading scorer, will be aboard the team bus. But three other starters and two reserves will not. Instead of worrying about making layups or getting steals, they'll be concentrating on having their hair done, stepping into special dresses and dancing the night away at the junior prom....

Hello there It was spring 1998 and the end of her 8th grade year at Greenberg Elementary when Stephanie, who lived in Pine Valley, sneaked onto friend Melissa's bus to hang out in Fox Chase after school. The girls were talking to friend Will when Tim, Will's friend who lived across the street and attended St. Cecilia's School, spotted them. Nothing could keep Tim from joining that conversation. "I had some excuse to be a part of it," he said. "We were [both] enthralled with the possibility of socializing with girls.

After Bishop Eustace junior Brianne Innamorato zoomed into second base with an RBI double in Wednesday's softball game against Paul VI, she did not celebrate much. The tall shortstop with long, blond hair did not react much when she ranged to her left or right to make a strong play in the field, either. Bishop Eustace is 2-10 this season. While Innamorato has committed to play at Florida Gulf Coast University and is hitting .517 with five doubles, a triple, and three home runs this season, she puts her emotion into supporting the teammates around her. You can hear whenever she's in the field.

Hello there Courtney and Gabe used to see each other on the "city kids' bus" that dropped him off at St. Joe's Prep and her at Merion Mercy Academy. But they didn't really know each other until she took him to her junior prom. It was a date of convenience; her friend was dating his friend. They had fun at prom and the post-prom parties, but there was no romance. Gabe graduated shortly after and left Fishtown to study advertising at the University of Hartford. The next year, Courtney left for Baltimore, where she studied marketing at Loyola University Maryland.

When the first graduating class of Cardinal Dougherty High School started planning its 50th reunion two years ago, they never imagined that three days before the big event the Archdiocese of Philadelphia would announce the end of their beloved alma mater. As 250 people gathered last night at the Radisson Hotel in Trevose, the reunion, which began with a Mass, became a bit like an Irish wake, with lots of drinking and storytelling, laced with memories and a sniffle or two. "It was a real kick in the pants," Frank Lynch, who came from Lancaster for the party, said of the news.

It was the day of the junior prom, and I knew my high school students were excited. I was excited, too. It was my chance to be that perennial 16-year-old. "I'll be there with my wife. " I told my class. Then I added, "And I will be bringing my yard stick and squirt bottle. " "Why?" they asked. "To keep you separated and hosed down, of course," I replied. It used to be said years ago that there needed to be enough room between dancers for the Holy Spirit. Now the only spirit present is that of Dionysus, that wild and crazy figure of Greek mythology, and the pounding beat of Mariah Carey's song, "Touch My Body.

Actress Polly Bergen has had a long and distinguished career. Bet she never thought that at 77, she'd be playing a pot pusher. But that's her lot as Stella on Desperate Housewives. This week, she tricked her daughter, Lynette (Felicity Huffman), into eating pot-laced brownies to help relieve side effects of chemo. When Lynette figured out why she had been laughing so hard at SpongeBob cartoons and scarfing all those snacks, she lectured Stella on what an irresponsible parent she had always been.

Last week, columnist Elmer Smith said that being a father changes you. I get that now.
