The Daily Numbers: 4 minutes, how long a computer was down at the county 911 Center during Friday’s shooting incident in Folcroft.

800,000 dollars, how much the county paid for the new system from Zetron just last May.

1, as in the No. 1 man at the Secret Service. Joseph Clancy, a Havertown native, paid a visit to wounded Folcroft Officer Chris Dorman yesterday.

22.5 to 45 years in prison for a Folcroft man for the murder of his girlfriend in Philly.

43, age of Upper Darby man, a former guard at Graterford Prison, convicted of sexual assault on a prisoner. But he will not be labeled a predator.

1947, the key bill that would allow more time for victims of child sexual abuse to bring legal action, that saw some important changes yesterday.

9-4 vote by Senate Judiciary Committee took out the retroactive language that would allow those abused decades ago to bring legal action now. The bill now would only affect future victims after the law is in effect.

30 years old, age at when victims have to bring an action in Pa. The new measure would expand that to 50 or possible remove it altogether. It also lifts the criminal statute of limitations for abuse cases.

132-68 vote in the House to pass a GOP spending plan for Pa. Gov. Wolf said he is not backing the spending plan because it’s not balanced.

31.6 billion dollar spending plan, that’s a 5 percent boost, but less than what Wolf was seeking.

250 million, what Wolf was seeking.

34 million to fight the opioid epidemic

36 dead, more than 140 wounded and the death toll likely will rise in wake of terrorist attack at Istanbul airport.

2 straight wins for the Phils.

4-3 comeback win over the D-Backs.

1 time all season - last night - that the Phils rallied for a win after trailing in the 8th inning.

16-18 of May, the last time the Phillies won a series.

85, age of Eagles coaching icon Buddy Ryan, who passed away yesterday.

46, the groundbreaking defense for which he was known.

45-35-1 record as coach of the Eagles.

0 playoff wins for Ryan.

Call me a Phanatic: A look at the ups and downs of being a Philadelphia sports fan.

No, he didn’t win a playoff game. But Buddy Ryan will always be a Philly sports icon. That’s because Buddy was one of us. RIP, Coach Ryan.

I Don’t Get It: The county 911 system went down at the precise 4 minutes that Officer Chris Dorman was in a life-or-death struggle in Folcroft. I don’t get it.

Today’s Upper: Kudos to Joe Clancy, a Havertown native who rose to head the Secret Service. He paid a visit to Officer Dorman in Folcroft yesterday.

Quote Box: “This can never happen again.”

- County Council Chairman Mario Civera on the 911 glitch.
