Kashif Payne, who starred at Archbishop Carroll High in 2001-02 before finishing his high school career at a New England prep school, was sentenced in federal court in Detroit to three years of probation and also must pay a fine and perform community service.

You couldn't drink it. You couldn't bathe in it. You couldn't wash dishes in it. A bloom of toxin-producing, blue-green algae in Lake Erie had rendered the water unsafe and forced Toledo, Ohio, to shut down its system for several days. Could it happen here? Exceedingly unlikely, Philadelphia-area water officials say. They do see the same algae in local waters, but the difference is, it doesn't grow out of control here or, for reasons unknown, produce the same toxins. But officials here have plenty of other types of algae to contend with, albeit mostly ones that affect taste and odor and clog filters, rather than harm people.

SUCCESS IS one thing. Handling it is another. Just one more part of the process. Last September, after losing a tough one to Penn State, Temple won by 31 at Maryland. It made a statement at the time, even though the Terps would finish 2-10. The next week the Owls lost at home by 23 against Toledo. That said something as well. You know what they say about history. Last week, these Owls (2-2, 1-0) won their first Big East game since being asked to leave the conference 8 years ago. Now they go to Connecticut (3-3, 0-1)

A YEAR AGO, this was the game that mostly put Temple out there. The 2-1 Owls, a week after almost beating Penn State at the Linc, went to 1-1 Maryland as a nine-point underdog and won, 38-7. It didn't matter too much that they then lost at home to Toledo by 23. Or that the Terps would only win once more. It was still a win by a MAC team on the road against a BCS/ACC opponent. Now, the Owls are in the Big East. And, coming off another opening blowout win over FCS Villanova, they're getting a Maryland team in South Philly on Saturday that has two new coordinators, is playing an inordinate amount of true freshmen and just beat FCS William & Mary, 7-6. Not shockingly, the Owls are favored by 10. So how do they deal with that?

DAVID TOLEDO STAYED in a jail cell Thursday as lawyers clashed in court over whether the accused Mayfair tire-slasher's bail should be reduced from $270,000 to $26,000. His wife, Yvonne, called him "my wonderful husband. " His mother, Dorothy, 70, said he is a good son who calls her twice a day. Defense attorney William J. Brennan said the higher bail was "tantamount to ransom" and was "off the hook. " He said Toledo, 44, had no serious prior criminal record but did have strong family support in the courtroom and ties to his community.

CÃ³mplices (Allies) is a new work created for PasiÃ³n y Arte, Philadelphia's all-female flamenco troupe, founded and directed by Elba Hevia y Vaca.
