Hope you had a good weekend. Get the week started with your daily look at five stories we're following:
1. Looking back at Sandy: Superstorm Sandy hit the region a year ago this week, and we're looking back at the damage and devastation the storm caused. Today, local emergency-management officials share what they learned from the storm (the key takeaway: preparation is king). More Sandy anniversary coverage is here.
2. Mob trial: Jury selection begins today at Camden's federal courthouse for the trial of Nicodemo Scarfo (son of the infamous mob boss "Little Nicky" Scarfo) and associate Salvatore Pelullo. Four lawyers and a former business executive are also on trial, charged with mail fraud, wire fraud and other offenses, for the alleged business-looting operation. It's expected to take two to three weeks to pick a jury; the trial is likely to last six months.
3. Vigil after scout's death: Christopher Alvelo, a 17-year-old aspiring Eagle Scout from Northeast Philadelphia, was killed in a weekend car crash. The teen's stepfather and three other fellow scouts, all age 15, were injured in the accident. A vigil for him is planned for this evening at his school, New Foundations Charter School.
