Yardley, 5:20 a.m. Cpl. Tim Reeves is driving in his unmarked Dodge Magnum when his police radio chirps. His team, serving a bench warrant nearby, needs help: A suspect has barricaded himself in the attic. The team needs Reeves - and Kendo. Kendo is Reeves' drug-sniffing dog, a 10-year-old German shepherd with a mean bark. Just the sound of the dog could scare a suspect out of a house, the corporal knows. Racing along empty streets on an unseasonably warm morning, Reeves speeds to the scene.

Her Acura MDX was parked just in front of her garage. As she raised the garage door, she noticed that snow was coming down in heavy clumps. "That wasn't right," she thought. It had stopped snowing long ago and was now mostly raining. She paused. It was a pause that saved her life. The snow that was raining down came from the upper branches of an old tulip poplar tree.

An article in Monday's Inquirer about the Philadelphia Classical School included an incorrect reference to Alexander Hamilton, the nation's first secretary of the treasury and the face on the $10 bill. Sunday's Real Estate section included an incorrect figure for the percentage of total U.S. energy produced that comes from solar power. In 2012, solar power accounted for 0.11 percent of all energy produced, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. A photograph caption in Sunday's Business section stated incorrectly the reason Nancy Becker expects to qualify for a health-insurance subsidy under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Her earnings from work are under 400 percent of the federal poverty level, which makes her eligible for the subsidy.
