It started over nothing - a police call about a maroon Buick blocking an intersection in North Philadelphia. Frustrated drivers leaned on their horns as traffic backed up around 22d Street and Columbia Avenue. When motorcycle officer Robert Wells arrived, he found Rush Bradford standing in the street, arguing through the driver's side window with his wife, Odessa Bradford. She pressed one foot on the gas and the other on the brake, making the engine roar. "Lady," the cop told her, "let the man park this car on the side.

Temple University is examining allegations raised in a student newspaper that a former head coach of track and field verbally abused, intimidated, and compromised the safety of his athletes, the chairman of the university board of trustees said Wednesday. The report, published this week in the Temple News, contended that for years, the school failed to respond to the complaints. "We will get a recommendation with respect as to how it was handled and next steps in the next several days," board chairman Patrick O'Connor said.

It would seem to anyone with a mastery of grammar that Ofo Ezeugwu blew it with the naming of his company, WhoseYourLandlord.com . That certainly was the reaction of his freshman English professor at Temple University when he visited a table Ezeugwu was manning on campus to promote his landlord-rating website. "I know I taught you better than this," Ezeugwu recalled James Mellis telling him. The name should be Who's YourLandlord, teacher told former student. But that would be missing the point, Ezeugwu explained to Mellis and, last week, to me. "We use the possessive form of who because we're giving renters ownership of their situation by putting housing in their hands," Ezeugwu said.

The people began forming a line at 4 p.m., an hour before the church doors swung open, and some were still there as late as 10:15, 75 minutes after the scheduled ending. That thousands, despite rainy, dreary weather, turned out last night at St. Alphonsus Church, in Maple Glen, Montgomery County, to honor C. Robert "Bob" Harrington was an occurrence that should have surprised no one. He meant that much to that many. Harrington, 55, who first made a name for himself as a basketball player and coach, and then enhanced it by becoming a giant in labor relations as a vice president for personnel services and chief negotiator at Temple University, all the while nurturing old friendships and starting new ones and caring for his beloved family, died last Thursday after battling cancer for close to four years.

Due to an unsettled offseason, the Big East Conference has finally released its 2012 football schedule. The conference had to deal with the departure of West Virginia before luring a former member that it had booted years earlier - Temple. For now, the Owls will have an 11-game schedule - including seven Big East foes - this coming season, with two bye weeks. That could change, as Temple is still looking to add a 12th opponent. So far, the Owls' schedule that was released on Tuesday is highlighted with games against Villanova, Penn State, Rutgers, Pittsburgh, Louisville and Cincinnati.

WHEN Deborah Broadnax was starting her course in radio, television and film at Temple University, her professor made a disheartening prediction. Looking around the lecture hall, professor Norman Felsenthal said that out of more than 100 students, "only three of you will actually work in television news. " Deborah said to herself, "Well, I'm going to be one of the three. " And she was. She worked in various capacities in TV news for Fox 29 and KYW Channel 3 for several years before moving into academia for another of her numerous careers.

Temple University is investigating allegations that a student was physically attacked and called anti-Semitic names after a verbal exchange on Wednesday with students manning a pro-Palestinian group table on campus. The alleged altercation occurred during Temple Fest, an event in which student groups set up tables on campus to inform students, who moved in Wednesday, about school activities. The incident - one of what some say is a growing number of rifts on college campuses between pro-Israeli and pro-Palestinian students - quickly gained national attention with advocacy groups calling on Temple to label the attack a hate crime.

TEMPLE UNIVERSITY has asked a Canadian high school to stop using an owl mascot that looks very much like its own. Temple officials said Thursday that the school in Kelowna, British Columbia, has agreed to change its symbol. The Kelowna Daily Courier reported that the local high school's scowling bird was virtually identical to Temple's Hooter the Owl. Kelowna Secondary School began using the symbol in 2002, after Temple had trademarked its image. It's not clear how the mascots ended up looking alike.

THE 50TH anniversary of the North Philadelphia riot has doubtlessly touched a chord of memories for many who lived in that area in 1964, memories of a vibrant community that was alive with crowds and action. As described by Will Bunch in yesterday's Daily News , the area around Columbia Avenue west of Broad Street was the epicenter of black Philadelphia. The avenue itself was known as Jump Street for its lively mix of small retailers, nightclubs and bars. But, like a sudden gust of foul air extinguishing a flame, the 1964 riot changed all that.

Since 2006, Philadelphia's Mauckingbird Theatre Company has focused on gay-themed stage works - eight years during which progress on such issues as gays in the military and same-sex marriage might have quieted its ardor. But no. "Our mission has always been, and will continue to be, to tell good stories from a queer perspective, no matter what else is going on," says Mauckingbird artistic director Peter Reynolds, a company cofounder with producing director Brandon McShaffrey and managing director Lindsay Mauck.

Neil D. Theobald addressed the issue while answering written questions from students at the Student Center during the school year's first meeting of student government. "There is no place on a university campus for violence," Theobald said when asked what the university was doing to prevent similar incidents and why no one had been arrested.

THE SALE of William Penn High School will proceed as planned. A community coalition announced yesterday that it has dropped its legal action opposing the sale of the sprawling North Philadelphia campus, days after the state Supreme Court denied a request for a preliminary injunction. "We fought the good fight," Inez Henderson-Purnell, president of the William Penn Development Coalition, said in a statement released by the group. In June, the School Reform Commission approved the sale of the property to Temple University for $15 million.
