A Malvern company that publishes newsletters on business topics, including one titled "Keeping Up to Date on Payroll," will face a bill of an estimated $1.75 million to pay 6,000 employees docked for bathroom and other short breaks. "No worker should have to face the choice: Do I take a bathroom break, or do I get paid?" said Adam Welsh, a senior trial attorney at the U.S. Department of Labor's Philadelphia office. "I think it's the rare employer who doesn't allow its employees to go to the bathroom," Welsh said.

Chris Montie suffered a concussion in a St. Joseph's Prep practice two days after Thanksgiving, taking an inadvertent elbow to the head, and had to sit out the team's first three games. Showing little rust from the layoff in his first appearance of the season, the 6-foot-6, 195-pound senior forward helped the visiting Hawks, who trailed by 10 points midway through the third quarter, overcome Malvern Prep, 51-46, in a nonleague contest Friday afternoon. Montie's first practice since the injury was on Thursday.

Eight years ago, Kate Plows was reflecting on her job as arts instructor at Malvern Preparatory School. She knew how students would benefit from the English and math classes they took at the private high school better known for its academics and athletics than its arts programming. But she wanted to make her ceramics classes have impact, too. "A lot of my students leave my studio and they've had a great experience, but they're never coming back," Plows said. "They're never sitting at a potter's wheel again.

The first rule of running trick plays is to conceal the notion that trickery is afoot. Malvern Prep junior wide receiver Matt Daller did that twice Saturday during the Friars' 34-7 Inter-Ac victory at Germantown Academy. The first came on fourth and 5 near midfield when the punter Garrett Reilly flipped the ball on a reverse to Quinn McCahon. He threw to Daller for an 18-yard gain near the Friars' sideline. "I think the biggest thing was not to tip it off and look where I was going," Daller said.

The top 24 boys' golfers in the Inter-Ac were presented with a decision Tuesday morning. Play Merion East in a torrential downpour that afternoon or wait until Wednesday and play Merion West in the sunshine. As if there was ever a question. Malvern Prep senior Marty McGuckin stood tall despite the driving rain on the famed Main Line course - the site of the 2013 U.S. Open - by shooting 4-over-par 74 to win the Bert Linton Inter-Ac Individual Championship. Episcopal Academy's Case Hummer finished second with 76. Hummer is an eighth grader who played the whole round without a hat or umbrella.

Malvern Prep's Colin Wills had no one in front of him as he crossed the finish line Monday at Belmont Plateau. It only seemed like he had no one behind him. Wills cruised to victory in 17 minutes, 1 second to capture the Inter-Ac boys' cross-country championship on Belmont Plateau's 3.1 mile course. Episcopal Academy's Jakob Jorgensen finished next in 17:28. Episcopal won the team title. Germantown Academy's Abbe Goldstein won the girls' race in 18:55. Teammate Maggie Hallahan crossed second, but GA lost the team title to Notre Dame by one point.

Mike Narzikul had a message for the Malvern Prep soccer team in the pregame huddle. The players circled him, all eyes on him. The cocaptain pleaded with the Friars. "Do it for the seniors," he said, impassioned. Like the rest of the squad, the senior center back knew that beating rival Haverford School, a team ranked as high as No. 4 in the country by one publication, was a tall order. It was something Malvern's senior class had never accomplished, going 0-8-1 against the Fords, according to Narzikul.

Ever since he was a little kid, Gizmo Guy always has loved snooping around buildings under construction. So he jumped at the chance to check out the shiny new Saint-Gobain North American corporate headquarters in Malvern, where he was promised insights into its high-tech building materials - the spécialité de la maison . And he learned that . . . People in tightly sealed glass-walled buildings don't have to throw stones (or put A.C....
