RADNOR Jillian Hughes attends a public school with 22 Advanced Placement courses, 96 percent of students going on to college or trade school, and a sense of community so strong that 300 students formed a club just to turn up and cheer at school sporting events. "We have everything we need," Hughes, 15, said of Radnor High. Moved by the Philadelphia School District's extraordinary budget crunch and the wide gulf between her own education and that of city students, Hughes recently gathered and distributed supplies for pupils at one Philadelphia elementary school.

RADNOR With new state standards and worries over America's slipping academic standing, interest in early childhood education has never been stronger - President Obama last year declared that "the sooner a child begins learning, the better he or she does down the road. " But in affluent Radnor Township on the Main Line, a move to expand to full-day kindergarten this fall has spurred an unexpected reaction: Opposition from a growing number of parents complaining about school overcrowding and disruptions, and the end of a half-day option.

Chun "Tony" Tong sat at the dining room table in his Devon apartment Tuesday, sipping coffee and fighting back tears as he discussed the new push to find his wife's killer. "I am very happy" police reopened the case after 20 years, Tong said. "I want to know who killed her. " Tong was at work on June 26, 1993, when Jennifer Tong's body was found in the backseat of her car, with a gunshot to the head. Radnor Township police announced last month that they had reopened the case, saying they were hopeful new advances in fingerprint and DNA technology might yield leads.

Katie Koestner was a freshman at the College of William and Mary in the fall of 1990 when she met a fellow student she described as having awesome hair, a great jawline, and buttons on his shirt. "I thought he was fantastic," she said. Then he raped her, she said. Koestner, now director of Campus Outreach Services in Wayne, spoke Monday before a group of about 100 counselors, teachers, administrators, and law enforcement officials about date rape and risky behavior at the Radnor Township Municipal Building.

RADNOR - As a major with the Air Force Reserve, John J. Murphy thought his extensive military record would be an asset when he applied to be manager of Radnor Township. Instead, he contends, it cost him the job. Lawyers for Murphy and the township are meeting this week to discuss a possible trial date on Murphy's claims that the Radnor Township Board of Commissioners discriminated against him on the basis of his military service: They didn't hire him, Murphy alleges, because they worried that his commitment to the Reserve would require him to leave town too often.

Northeast Ship Repair , the Boston-based firm that has been stripping aged Navy guided-missile frigates at the old Philadelphia Navy Yard under an $8.5 million government contract, has been sold for about $18.5 million to a Radnor investment firm and its partners. "It's a good investment: There are maybe five dry docks on the East Coast that can handle ships 750 feet or bigger, and they're not building any new" installations, said Andrew Panzo , general partner at NewSpring Capital in Radnor.
