Mayoral candidate Doug Oliver abruptly resigned as Philadelphia Gas Works spokesman Friday after questions were raised about his visibility in a television commercial for the city-owned utility. Given Oliver's mayoral ambitions, City Councilman James Kenney had questioned the appropriateness of Oliver's appearance in a PGW ad for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP). In an interview Friday, Oliver said he had discussed the situation with the PGW board and concluded the issue was becoming a distraction undermining his ability to properly serve as PGW's senior vice president for marketing and corporate communications.

Whatever they did, it seems Temple University's board of trustees couldn't win. Their most famous and loyal member, Bill Cosby, was the subject of an escalating string of ugly accusations of decades-old sexual assaults. Many of the board members are lawyers or judges, upholders of a system where one is presumed innocent until proved otherwise. And Cosby has never been found guilty of any sexual impropriety. So board members took their time, weighing what to do. While that annoyed some people, others expected nothing less.

FINALLY, it was Bill Cosby who put Temple University out of its misery.

Lincoln University's embattled president, under fire for statements that some critics interpreted as blaming women for sexual assault, resigned Monday. Robert R. Jennings' departure came as the Chester County school's board of trustees was reviewing his performance. The university then announced it was forming a task force on sexual misconduct and reaching out to faculty, students, and parents to improve relations. Board Chair Kimberly A. Lloyd, who announced Jennings' departure in an e-mail to the campus, declined through a spokesman to comment on the reasons or say whether Jennings received a financial payout.

GRADY SIZEMORE will be a member of the 2015 Phillies. In what capacity remains to be seen. The club announced yesterday that it had signed the once-talented but more recently inert outfielder to a $2 million contract for the upcoming season. Sizemore, a three-time All-Star with the Indians, joined the Phillies last summer after an uninspiring couple of months with the Red Sox. Despite a hot start with the Phillies, he finished the year hitting .233/.299/.354 overall. The signing underscores the decisions the Phillies have to make with their outfield.
