With so many thieves running around this town, a lot of people have probably wondered: Where do they unload all that hot merchandise? Now we know that one such place was Bee's, a second-hand shop in the city's Logan section that traded in everything from cars to guns, nearly all of it stolen. Bee's turned out to be a police front, and in the end, 45 of its best suppliers got stung. Philadelphia undercover Detectives Martin Deitz and Edward Quinn ("Marv" and "Miles" to their clientele)

Three mornings a week, an unsteady parade moves up Pat Wagner's front walk. Supported by canes, walkers and wheelchairs, men and women crowd into the living room, bare their midriffs and backs, and ask Wagner to sting them with bees. "I know it seems pretty strange," says Cindy Slick, 36, a teacher here for her second session of stings. "But look at us. What have we got to lose?" Like most of the hundreds of people who have visited Wagner's home just south of Washington, Slick suffers from multiple sclerosis, a disease that degenerates the central nervous system.

A Bensalem hosiery firm has paid $7.85 million to heirs of a 29-year-old man whose strange, sudden death ignited a bitter grab for control of the business. Bryan D. Nelson died Nov. 3, 1991, four days after collapsing from a bee sting during a round of golf at a Horsham country club. At the time, he held a controlling interest in Hosiery Corp. of America, and his death set off a court battle between family members and company officials. The $7.85 million payment, from HCA to Nelson's estate, is part of a settlement filed last month in Montgomery County Orphan's Court.

First-grader Gregory Rothsching came in ready. He knew from past experience this would be quick, easy, over fast. "It didn't hurt," the blond, spiky-haired child said of the measles shot he'd just received. "You know why? I've had three needles. Yeah. One for a bee sting. One when I was a baby. And one today. Nah, it didn't hurt. " Robert Walker, 7, and Brian James Sturgis, 7, agreed, and said the shot felt like a mere pinch. But 6-year-old Gary Stricker and kindergartener Gina Caputo had different sentiments.

U.S. captain Patty Sheehan knew the Solheim Cup was over. She just didn't think it should end quite the way it did. In a bizarre conclusion yesterday, the U.S. conceded the five matches still in progress when Europe clinched the cup by reaching 14 1/2 points. "It went into instant chaos," Sheehan said after the event, which was held in Loddekopinge, Sweden. "I had never experienced that before. Usually, we just sort of play in, and that's it. I can't say, 'Hey, you guys can't quit.

Preseason optimism has slowly given way to reality for Michelle Staroba. Still, the first-year Germantown Academy girls' tennis coach finds what has happened this season hard to believe. The Patriots wrapped up their regular season last week by falling to Episcopal Academy, 5-0, on Tuesday, and defeating Baldwin, 4-1, on Friday. Their 3-5 Inter-Ac League record (4-7 overall) was not what Staroba had envisioned in September. "I think we should have done better," Staroba said, "but we had only two varsity matches all year when we had our entire team.

Golf finally felt easy to Jeff Sluman, and it wasn't hard to see why. From a fairway bunker on the 18th hole yesterday, he had to play a 20-yard hook to avoid the trees and reach the elevated green. His 7-iron stopped 16 inches from the cup for his ninth birdie, a course-record 62 and a two-shot lead after one round at the Chrysler Championship in Palm Harbor, Fla. "You kind of wonder to yourself why in the world you can't do that more often, because it seems so easy," Sluman said.

At this summer camp, no one will be shooting arrows, riding horses, or throwing pottery. When it's "salon camp," days are filled with facials, mani-pedis, hairstyling, and makeup.   The seven girls enrolled in this one-week camp, held throughout the summer in the air-conditioned confines of the Hairs to You Salon in Bala Cynwyd, are loving the lessons from the pros and practicing on one another. No one here aspires to be a cosmetologist, but getting the skinny on tween and teen pastimes such as pampering and makeovers is a dress-up dream for the campers.

Trish McArthur is so allergic to bee stings that when she heard two hives had joined her densely populated Plymouth Township development, she freaked out. "I understand honeybees may be great for the environment, but they don't have to be in our backyards," she said in a flier she distributed to neighbors. "Rent some space on an open field if you are that passionate about beekeeping. " In just over a week, 50 residents rallied behind McArthur, telling local officials they feared for the safety and health of those living near the hives and asking that beekeeping be banned on properties smaller than an acre in the Montgomery County community.

Pat Morris looks forward to winning a second Major Indoor Soccer League championship when the Kixx play the Detroit Ignition in the title game Saturday afternoon in Plymouth, Mich. More important, the Kixx defender feels fortunate that he has a second chance at life. Morris, who will turn 30 in June, was named a first-team MISL all-star this year, the fifth time he has been accorded the honor. He was a key contributor to the Kixx' MISL title team in 2002. But two years later, a few weeks before the postseason, his life took an unexpected turn.

Williamstown coach Pat Usinger has a lot of memories of tennis. The day when she watched a professional match for the first time in the 1950s . . . when she sat glued to her television screen as Arthur Ashe won Wimbledon in 1975 . . . when she heard the radio broadcast of Virginia Wade's Wimbledon championship in 1977. Perhaps no memory gets Usinger more fired up, however, than the one of her fight to begin the girls' tennis program at Williamstown in the early 1960s. With girls' sports on the back burner then, the boys' program had to be established before the girls could have their own. That happened in 1965, and the next year, the Braves had their first girls' team, coached by Usinger.

Kathleen Porter had loved playing soccer since she was little, so she opted for that fall sport instead of running cross-country for Holy Cross the last two seasons. But when she won the 3,200-meter race at last spring's state Parochial A track meet, she realized it was time to make a change. In soccer, she was a junior varsity goalie. But she was clearly an elite distance runner. So this fall, she's running instead of diving for soccer balls. "I'm better at cross-country than soccer," Porter said.
