Amid complaints from some community leaders and residents, Google has decided to stop using the name "Temple Town" on Google Maps to describe the North Philadelphia area around Temple University. In a statement issued late last week, a spokesman for Google Inc. said the company could not say how the name came to be on its Web application or how long it had been there, but added that it was "working on updating the map so that Temple Town no longer appears. " Community members had complained that the name "Temple Town" shifted the focus of the neighborhood to the university.

Tuesday, Sept. 23, would have been John Coltrane's 88th birthday. And there's a big Coltrane panel Tuesday at Temple University. Resonance Records will be there, along with Temple people and the Ars Nova Workshop. But there's more than a birthday to celebrate. There's a just-released recording of a legendary Coltrane concert at Temple in 1966, eight months before his death. Resonance has just released Offering: Live at Temple University , a restored, often-bootlegged recording of the saxophone colossus and onetime Philly resident at his spiritual and improvisational peak.

GIGANTIC dinosaur bones aren't the only things being dug up by Philadelphia archaeologists. A late-life recording by Philly-based saxophonist John Coltrane was recently discovered in the archives at Temple University by scholar Yasuhiro Fujioka, then dusted off for much-belated release by Resonance Records. And tomorrow at 5:30 p.m., on what would have been Coltrane's 88th birthday, the album will be debuted and discussed in a free-admission gab session at Temple's Paley Library, 1210 Polett Walk, sponsored by Ars Nova Workshop.

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.

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 WAY David M. Jacobs sees it, aliens from outer space have been kidnapping humans for aeons and sexually molesting them to create human-alien hybrids that walk among us today undetected and will soon take over Earth. He knows that sounds crazy. But he long ago quit caring what people think of him. As director of the International Center for Abduction Research, Jacobs, 71, has made it his life's mission to investigate claims of extraterrestrial abduction. "What I'm doing will either be an interesting but nonessential footnote to popular culture or the most important thing that's ever happened to humankind.

Its goal: to honor trial lawyers "who have left an indelible mark on the American legal tradition through a lifetime of service to the American public, the Constitution and the American trial bar," according to its website.

BACK IN the '60s, college students who saw the need for change at their institutions didn't file petitions or write letters. They demonstrated. Temple University wasn't immune. In 1969, students staged a sit-in in the office of president Paul Anderson to demand the admission of more African-American and Latino students, then a tiny minority of the school's student body. Anderson agreed to the demands and looked around the campus for someone who had the interest and the leadership qualities to lead a recruitment program.

As blasts from cannons filled the air, dozens of 18th-century reenactors swarmed Marcus Hook on Saturday, harking back to an era when the Delaware River community was a haven for plundering pirates, including the notorious Blackbeard. Hundreds turned out under sunny skies for the sixth annual Pirate Festival, a daylong waterfront event to raise money to preserve the Marcus Hook Plank House, a 1700s property that, according to legend, belonged to one of Blackbeard's mistresses, Margaret.

The computer, in the department of surgery, contained files with patient information that could be used for identity theft, including name, age, billing codes, and, in some cases, the name of the referring physician. The files did not contain Social Security numbers or financial data, according to the university.

THE FALLOUT from an alleged assault at a Temple University activities fair continued yesterday. Abdel Aziz Jalil, 22, was charged with simple assault and reckless endangerment after he allegedly punched another student during a heated argument Aug. 20, said Tasha Jamerson, a spokeswoman for the District Attorney's Office. The victim - whom law-enforcement sources identified as Daniel Vessal - initially claimed that Jalil had used anti-Semitic slurs during the confrontation. However, Vessal later told the D.A.'s Office that "he does not believe that he was assaulted because of religion, race or ethnicity," said Jamerson, who also noted that witnesses to the incident echoed that belief.
