People here knew Dorothy Storck as an Inquirer reporter whose syndicated columns reached hundreds of thousands of readers across the nation in the 1970s. But she was, and did, much more, both before and after that time - a strong, swashbuckling presence who embraced life and its challenges. Ms. Storck, 88, of Chicago, died at home late Sunday, Aug. 2, after a five-year battle with cancer. In the 1950s, she joined the military and commanded an Air Force squadron, a link in the chain of her military family.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. - The Big East has reached an agreement with Syracuse University, allowing the Orange to leave the league a year early for the Atlantic Coast Conference.
