Pennsylvania district engulfed in dispute over nighttime athletic events

Some patrons in the New Hope-Solebury (Pa.) School District have been rallying public support in an effort to reverse a board decision to stop scheduling football, soccer and other sports games at night.

But those who want the night games to continue have begun a public campaign to get the board to change its mind.
