A former employee of the Philadelphia-Montgomery County Office of the American Lung Association, who admitted to embezzling nearly $130,000 from the charity, was sentenced yesterday to 11 1/2 to 23 months in county prison. Nancy Anne Stedman, 41, of the 100 block of Runnymede Road in Wayne, had been director of business affairs for the association, which has its office in Whitemarsh Township. Part of her duties included keeping the books. From August 1990 to March 1992, Stedman forged 15 checks in her name totaling $129,627 and doctored expense invoices to make it appear that the money was going to cover mailing expenses.

A BUBBLY-HEADED SCHEME Is nothing sacre? It's enough to make one bleu! Two Frenchmen have been convicted of conspiring - maybe with Panama's deposed dictator, Manuel Noriega, perhaps even Cuban dictator Fidel Castro - to take cheap sparkling wine and sell it as France's vaunted Moet & Chandon Brut Imperial champagne. Counterfeiting did occur, but a Cuban government spokesman scoffed at the suggestion that Castro was involved. So did a lawyer for Noriega, who said his client has been accused of many things, "but to the best of my knowledge, making phony champagne is not one of them.

Bellmawr residents received a little lesson on radon and its effects Tuesday night and many admittedly went home less scared and more knowledgeable on the subject. The lesson, taught by members of the state Department of Environmental Protection and the American Lung Association of New Jersey, gave the 80 people who turned out an idea of what radon is, how it affects those exposed to it over a long period of time, and how to test for it. "They got your interest going without scaring you," said Carol Carey.

While those who are easily overcome roll up their windows, nostrils cringing, when driving through North Jersey's pungent industrial stretches, it's also Camden County that is home to some of the worst air in the state. Of the 12 New Jersey counties graded in an American Lung Association report released last week, Camden County had the most days from 1997-1999 when air quality was unhealthy to people - the kind of days when the elderly and those with breathing problems are advised to stay indoors.

Marie Curtis, executive director of the New Jersey Environmental Lobby, was not the least bit startled by the Garden State's pitiful showing in the ozone air pollution study released by the American Lung Association yesterday. The association gave failing grades to a dozen New Jersey counties in a study of ozone pollution, and Camden County is the worst offender, according to the report based on federal Environmental Protection Agency ozone data from 1996 through 1998. "I was not at all surprised," said Curtis, who lobbies in Trenton on behalf of about 100 state and regional environmental groups.

If you are sneezing, coughing, wheezing or have a headache that just won't go away, your house may be making you sick. Cleaning the place from top to bottom won't make the problem go away. In fact, some of the household products you use to get the bathtub to sparkle or the kitchen floor to shine may cause eye, nose and throat irritation plus headaches in the short term. In some cases, prolonged exposure to these cleaning agents can permanently damage your central nervous system, your liver and kidneys, according to the American Lung Association.

So you're at a loss to figure out what to get your golfing dad for Father's Day? Did that last gift putter end up in a pile of old clubs in the basement? Does that new bazooka metal-head driver cost a week's salary? If dad plays a lot of golf, the best gift might be a season pass enabling him to visit a number of Philadelphia-area courses for just a fraction of the usual greens fee. Two options are Philadelphia PGA Gold, a first-year project of the Philadelphia Section PGA that combines discounts with a cardmember program, and the Golf Privilege Card, sponsored by the American Lung Association.
