IN 1982, three high schools in Southeast Delaware County - Collingdale, Darby Township and Sharon Hill - were merged to form Academy Park. Bill Cubit, who'd been the football coach the previous five years at his alma mater, Sharon Hill, was given the task of starting up the new program. The decision was not without its controversy. Those who didn't agree with his appointment were convinced Cubit would fail. Maybe even miserably. Yet he never flinched. And in their inaugural season the Knights only won every game.

Bill Cubit may be the first-year head coach at Illinois but he hasn't forgotten his Delaware County roots, and his old friends from that area haven't forgotten him, either. Cubit, 62, a native of Sharon Hill who became Illinois' offensive coordinator in 2013, took over the main job on Aug. 28 after Tim Beckman was fired amid allegations of mistreatment by former players. The move touched off a major reaction from the folks back home. "The reaching out of the kids from Sharon Hill and Academy Park and Widener is unbelievable," Cubit said Monday from his office in Champaign, Ill. "I'm touching base with a lot of the guys, a lot of the players from Widener and Sharon Hill.

At 9:30 a.m. Friday, Nina Innarella arrived for her set - short in the back, curled on top and brushed back on the sides. Called a shingle, it's the same style she's been getting for years. Many years. No scrunging, no crimping, no mousse for Nina. She insists on her regular shampooing, rollers and set - with at least 20 minutes under the dryer. So she'll have plenty of time to gossip. Innarella and her 20 or so friends are what the Venus Beauty School in Sharon Hill calls the regulars - women, most of them far north of 60, who never miss their Friday morning trip to Venus.

The quiet Red Lantern Tavern in Glenolden is no stranger to patrons from outside the one-square- mile borough: On a typical night, manager Bob Simone sees clientele trickle in from nearly every nearby Delaware County town. Some meet friends. Others stop by to chat with Simone. But a vast, distinctive group of customers - nearly 1 in 4, Simone estimates - flocks to his local watering hole because they have no other choice. They live in Sharon Hill, and they want a drink. For decades, Sharon Hill locals wanting to buy alcohol have been confronted with only two options: Buy a drink elsewhere or don't drink at all. Their borough is completely dry. No bars.

IT IS A TIME to reflect for Illinois interim football coach Bill Cubit, a Delaware County native, and a time to deflect for Penn State coach James Franklin. Franklin, a Langhorne native, strongly denied Tuesday that he has any interest in the job at the University of Miami, left vacant when Al Golden was fired Sunday. Dennis Dodd, of CBSSports.com, speculated in an online report that Franklin was one of 12 potential candidates for the position, writing that there were "rumblings" that the PSU boss might want to make a move, if for no other reason than he would have an easier time winning in the ACC Coastal than the Big Ten East.

THE BASKETBALL courts at Connell Park in Southwest Philly were packed last night, the thwack of rubber on macadam filling the air. On another night, in another life, Corey Tunnell would have been there, popping off jump shots with his friends. But Tunnell, 16, is gone, claimed by an Aug. 9 shooting that his family describes as an "unfortunate accident" at his aunt's house, up the block from those courts. "I'm still in a cloud. I still can't believe it," Tunnell's paternal grandmother, Caroline Armstrong, told the Daily News last night in her home in Sharon Hill, Delaware County.

SEPTA on Sunday extended the deadline for people to pay for Regional Rail passes reserved last week for Pope Francis' visit in September. The former deadline had been midnight Sunday. The new deadline is 3 p.m. Monday. In an online lottery last Monday, SEPTA received requests for 328,045 passes, leaving more than 20,000 unsold. SEPTA officials said then that they expected even more passes to be available because not all transactions would be completed, but they did not say Sunday how many of the passes for Sept.

Daniel J. Algeo, 70, of Havertown, a longtime teacher, coach and mentor at Rosemont School of the Holy Child, died Thursday, March 12, of a stroke at Bryn Mawr Hospital. A legend at the school, "Mr. A," as he was called, had planned to retire at the end of the 2014-15 school year but last month became ill. As his condition worsened, the school community gathered at Rosemont College's Immaculate Conception Chapel to pray for him. "It was a wonderful testament to the impact that Mr. Algeo had on the Rosemont School community," said Thomas G. Lengel, Head of School, in a tribute on the school's website.
