Judith Burke was walking back to her car on Bunker Hill after a pleasant evening at the ballet when she saw a group of tiny four-legged creatures executing a series of dazzling allegros and tours en l'air. "Rats," she said. "Big rats. Huge rats. At least 200 of them, in a frenzy. They were in this lot, covered with weeds, where a couple of transients were sleeping. . . . I ran." This wasn't the first sighting of real rat-packers in the area. Wells Fargo Center--where Burke's car was parked--recently sent out a warning to its tenants declaring that "the Bunker Hill area is experiencing an infestation of rodents."

PHILADELPHIA — The Philadelphia Flyers have continued a season-long trend by winning games and losing players. Despite seeing Claude Giroux depart late in the second period with a head injury and goalie Ilya Bryzgalov leave with 13 minutes 1 second left in the game, the Flyers defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning, 5-2, on Saturday night at the Wells Fargo Center. Giroux was hurt late in the second period when he was inadvertently kneed in the head by teammate Wayne Simmonds. "He was in front of me and I tried to jump over him and I don't know where I caught him," Simmonds said.

"We've decided to capitalize on our heritage," a spokeswoman explained in the summer of 1986. At the time, the store was undergoing an image change under the tenure of former company President Tom L. Roach.
