It's Monday. Get your week started with a quick look at stories we'll be following today:
1. Penn State hearing: Three former Penn State administrators face a preliminary hearing today over their alleged roles in the Jerry Sandusky sex-abuse scandal. Former university president Graham Spanier, retired vice president Gary Schultz and ex-athletic director Tim Curley contend that they didn't cover up allegations that Sandusky was sexually preying on boys. A judge will decide whether their case should proceed to trial after the hearing, which is expected to last a day or two.
2. Record rainfall: Authorities are investigating a fatal car crash into the Schuylkill River that happened during Sunday night's record-setting rainfall. A 21-year-old woman was killed when her vehicle plunged into the river near Boathouse Row, and police are trying to determine what led to the accident. The 8.02 inches of rain that fell Sunday set multiple records, including the record for the most rain ever to fall on a single day at Philadelphia International Airport. Including rain that fell during the early hours of Monday, a total of 8.26 inches was recorded at the airport during the storm.
3. Buono's running mate: State Sen. Barbara Buono, the Democratic candidate for governor in New Jersey, is slated to announce her running mate today. Reports surfaced last week that Buono had selected labor organizer Milly Silva as her lieutenant governor pick in her bid to challenge Republican incumbent Gov. Chris Christie. The choice is expected to become official at a morning news conference and rally in East Rutherford.
