The Daily Numbers -- Oct. 29

The Daily Numbers: 2 people stabbed, and one dead after an incident in Olney. A house was set on fire, and police believe it was done to cover up the original crime.

39, that was the chilly temperature that greeted most of us when we left the house this morning. Yep, summer’s over.

1 student brutally attacked at Rowan College late Saturday. He died of his injuries on Sunday afternoon.

8 p.m., that’s the new curfew for those 17 and younger in Lower Chichester Township.

39, age of woman found slain in her Exton townhouse. Police say she was beaten to death with an ax-like object.

22, age of her boyfriend, who is now charged in the incident.

189 employees with management titles at the Philadelphia Parking Authority, once again coming under fire for being a patronage haven.

54.5 percent increase in revenue brought in by the parking authority. Unfortunately, much of it has gone to meet the payroll, which has doubled. The agency brought in $192 million, but gave only $20 million to the city.

1 dollar surcharge that has been slapped on SEPTA riders who buy train tickets after they get on the train. SEPTA now says it will begin offering same-day credits to riders.

17,000 parking places at Philadelphia International Airport, and they’re planning to make it easier for those arriving there to find open spots. They’ll use new software to display where the open spots are.

2 days on the lam for a Wilmington inmate mistakenly released from prison with another group of inmates on Friday. He was picked up Sunday in a stolen car.

How good must it be to be a Boston fan these days? They’re getting ready to host another World Series Championship parade, the Patriots are the best football team on the planet, Boston College is No. 2 in the BCS rankings and QB Matt Ryan could win the Heisman. Next thing you’ll tell me is that the Celtics traded for Kevin Garnett in the off-season. Oh, they did? Just great.

I Don’t Get It: A 16-year-old student at McKean High School in Delaware has been charged with second-degree reckless endangering for an incident on a school bus last week. And what did he do? Set another student’s hair on fire. I don’t get it.

Today’s Upper: Yes, it’s that time of year. Break out the candy. Trick-or Treat is Wednesday night.
