A structural engineer testified Friday that the deadly demolition of a four-story Center City building had been handled well for weeks, but then, for unknown reasons, changed course with no regard for "common sense" or federal safety standards. Prosecution witness David B. Peraza said he did not know why contractor Griffin Campbell shifted from taking down the building using hand tools to using an excavator, a large and unwieldy piece of machinery. The change in approach came just a few days before June 5, 2013, when an unsupported four-story wall fell onto the adjoining Salvation Army thrift shop, killing six people and injuring 13. But a review of affidavits and other evidence led Peraza to conclude that decisions about how to demolish the building next to the thrift store rested not with property owner Richard Basciano, but were "within the domain and the control of the contractor," the engineer told the Common Pleas Court jury hearing Campbell's murder trial.

HERSHEY, Pa. - Even before the PIAA Class AAAA state final Saturday night between Roman Catholic and Martin Luther King, Philadelphia-area boys' basketball had achieved a first.

Jabri McCall, Martin Luther King's steady hand, turned the ball over as he prepared to signal for a timeout. Just 30 seconds were left, and King was clinging to a one-point lead, and Roman Catholic's Rashann London drove for what looked to be an easy layup. But seemingly out of nowhere, King's Chase Rodgers sprinted down the court and blocked the shot just in time. The Cougars crowd erupted until their celebration proved premature. The referee awarded Roman two free throws - which enabled them to take the lead and go on to win, 58-55,Friday night in the District 12 Class AAAA final - and the crowd at St. Joseph's University's Hagan Arena came undone.
