The plans are by no means final, but Radnor Township residents are gearing up to fight Villanova University's proposed 1,200-student dormitory on the site of a university parking lot. The complex would include a five-story parking garage, a performing arts center, and restaurants and bookstores catering to students. Radnor officials say that the plan, in the works for a year, is in its infancy, that the university has yet to present details to the township, and that it is refining a request for zoning amendments to the site.

Criticizing the decision to arm campus police - and the way in which it was made - about 150 Villanova University students, faculty, and staff staged a peaceful protest Friday. The move to give campus officers guns violates Catholic precepts, said the Rev. Allan Fitzgerald, director of the Augustinian Institute and a member of the theology department. "Rather than offer the principles of the NRA - more guns, less violence - we need to affirm the Catholic principles of peace and justice," he said.

Katie Samson is spinning off in new directions, but the immensely popular lacrosse tournament bearing her name will live on. Samson, whose lacrosse career was curtailed 15 years ago by a spinal-cord injury, says she is reducing her role in the annual event, which has drawn as many as 10,000 people. Samson, 35, of Ardmore, said that while she will cut back on the speaking engagements leading up to the tournament, she will remain involved in its foundation, show up for game day, and try to attract donors from outside the sports world.

Agnes Irwin School can go ahead with its plan to build a playing field with artificial turf and bleachers in a Radnor Township park so it can conduct gym classes and host sports events. On Feb. 23, Delaware County Court denied a petition from a group of Radnor Township residents who filed a civil action in 2011 designed to block the plan. They argued that the planned use would illegally interfere with public use of Radnor Memorial Park. The seven-acre park is on Matsonford Road in Wayne, across from Radnor Elementary School.
