The Catholic League and Public League might find a new rule regarding football ties to be a good fit. At a meeting earlier this month, the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association approved overtime for regular-season games, starting this fall. The idea sounds good to Fran Dougherty and Joe Stanley, who oversee football in the CL and PL, respectively, and each said he would push for the rule to be instituted in his league. "Hey, I wish we thought of it first," Dougherty said.

A SEPTA employee fired last month for allegedly falsifying overtime records says he was framed by SEPTA Inspector General Leon Wigrizer. The employee, John Murphy, of Holmesburg, says Wigrizer did it because he was embarrassed by a Daily News story on Wigrizer's own use of overtime as a city official. Murphy filed a lawsuit in Common Pleas Court yesterday against SEPTA and three SEPTA officials, including Wigrizer, demanding his job back. Murphy, 53, also is claiming he was a victim of age discrimination, charging that SEPTA management had on numerous occasions called him "an old goat.
