Let Mustafa Bey be the first to put pressure on Roman Catholic High to win the 1999-2000 Catholic League basketball championship. "There's going to be a big weight on those guys' shoulders," Bey said. "I'm hoping they can take what they learned this season and go ahead and do it again. " Bey, a 5-9 point guard, was talking yesterday after returning from Cumberland, Md., where Roman was based during its participation in the Alhambra Catholic Invitational Tournament, played at Frostburg State.

Former Camden school board president Elaine A. Bey yesterday pleaded guilty to one count of misusing more than $9,000 from the Camden school system, using the money for car rentals, food, lodging, liquor and restaurant charges. While 10 counts of fraud charges against Bey were dismissed, she was required to accept responsibility for the improper use of a total of $24,000 in school board funds from 1987 to 1993. The guilty plea came as a result of a prolonged investigation of the Camden school district by federal authorities.

When Rashid Bey's expressive, saucer-like eyes would droop and his shoulders would sag, St. Joseph's coach Phil Martelli knew his floor general was, as he said with a smile, "visiting some land I'm not aware of, a place I'm not familiar with. " And when Bey would drift off into that never-never land, the impact on the Hawks was profound. Bey, a 6-foot junior from South Philadelphia, is the most pivotal piece to Martelli's interesting puzzle as the Hawks fight to legitimize themselves as a challenger in the scrambled Atlantic Ten Conference.

"Our efforts are pointed toward eliminating machine politics. " They said the race for three seats on the board had become a "cutthroat partisan election.

The police officer glared at the man accused of killing his best friend in a fusillade of bullets. From across a Common Pleas courtroom, the accused cop-killer held the gaze of the officer on the witness stand. When Officer Kyle Bey resumed his testimony, describing how the defendant and his two cronies chased him and his buddy in West Philly, then opened fire on their car, there was anger in his voice. "They came up behind us," Bey said. "Then I heard a 'pop!' And then, 'pop!

For Rashid Bey, the splendid St. Joseph's point guard who is all fearlessness and guile in a quick, sinewy package, it will take awhile for this championship thing to sink in. For Hawks coach Phil Martelli, who wears his heart on his sleeve and is always quick with a joke, it took about a millisecond to absorb. When the horn sounded to signal the end of St. Joe's 61-56 victory over Rhode Island last night before 12,087 at the CoreStates Spectrum, Martelli spun around, faced the joyous Hawks rooting section, raised both fists in the air, and immediately started crying.

AFTER COMPLAINANT Anthony Bey accused police of conducting an illegal search of his Frankford home and physically assaulting his brother in 2010, an Internal Affairs investigation exonerated the officers, and allegations of abuse were not sustained. On Tuesday, Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey backed a number of recommendations made by a civilian Police Advisory Commission panel, whose investigation of the case found evidence of abuse. It is the first panel opinion since 2007. The commission suggested that the officers involved "review the police directive concerning warrants and the constitutional requirements for warrantless searches; that additional training on searches be incorporated into training for all officers; and that the complainant be compensated for the property damage caused by the police officers.

The jurors prayed for the convicted cop-killer. But they couldn't agree to order his death. So they told Common Pleas Judge Jane Cutler Greenspan yesterday that they were deadlocked on a penalty for Brian "Mookie" Young, 21, the triggerman in the ambush murder of Police Officer Robert "Petey" Porter, 28, last year. They returned life sentences for Young's accomplices, Dwayne Brown, 24, and Bernard Bennett, also 24. Greenspan said she will sentence all three to life prison terms on Nov. 12. "They said they prayed and did a lot of soul searching," said a happy Tariq El-Shabazz, Young's lawyer, after meeting with jurors.

Even though the losses had been piling up, the St. Joseph's Hawks still left the floor with some bounce in their step, as if they couldn't wait for the next tip-off. Not last night. When Rashid Bey's three-point shot from the left side of the arc clattered off the rim at the end of St. Joe's 67-64 overtime loss to Dayton in a shabby but exciting Atlantic Ten Conference game at the Fieldhouse, the Hawks (8-13, 1-10) trudged to their dressing room as if the life had finally been drained from them.

Six years. Six long years. That's how long it had been since La Salle won a postseason game. Donnie Carr was in ninth grade, Mike Gizzi in 11th when Bron Holland's jump shot in the final seconds gave La Salle its fourth Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference championship in five years. Since then, La Salle has been a band of vagabonds, treading through three years of the wilderness that was the Midwestern Collegiate Conference, playing teams nobody ever heard of in places nobody could find.

Meghan Harrington left Boston with three friends at 5 a.m. Saturday for Philadelphia. Music, beer, and revelry beckoned. By 6 p.m., the four women rested on a park bench at the edge of Made in America on the Ben Franklin Parkway, drinking cans of Bud Light acquired for $12 each and a 30-minute wait in line. Tired? Yeah, right. "Beyoncé could keep me going for days without sleep," said Harrington, 29, a teacher. The four women joined a crowd of nearly 70,000 - making this two-day Made in America festival, the fourth annual Jay Z-created and Budweiser-backed spectacle, the largest yet. Three weeks before Pope Francis will draw hundreds of thousands to the Parkway, the swelling crowd generated some problems.

TATTLE WONDERED if Beyonce and Jay-Z would get any pushback regarding their anniversary trip to Cuba, and sure enough . . . U.S. Reps. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Mario Diaz-Balart , of Florida, have written to the U.S. Department of Treasury expressing concern about the trip. In the letter, both said that they represent a community that has been "deeply and personally harmed by the Castro regime's atrocities. " "The restrictions on tourism travel are commonsense measures meant to prevent U.S. dollars from supporting a murderous regime that opposes U.S. security interests at every turn and which ruthlessly suppresses the most basic liberties of speech, assembly and belief," the Republican lawmakers wrote.

OAKLAND, Calif. - Peyton Manning threw his 30th touchdown pass of the season on the game's opening drive, and the Denver Broncos rolled to their eighth straight victory, beating the Oakland Raiders, 26-13, on Thursday night. Knowshon Moreno ran for 119 yards and a score on a career-high 32 carries, and Matt Prater kicked four field goals for the Broncos (10-3), who moved a half-game ahead of New England and Baltimore for the second-best record in the AFC. Denver visits Baltimore next week in a game that will help decide who gets a first-round playoff bye. Carson Palmer threw one interception that thwarted a possible scoring chance for the Raiders (3-10)

Turhan Bey, 90, an actor whose exotic good looks earned him the nickname of "Turkish Delight" in films with Errol Flynn and Katharine Hepburn before he left Hollywood for a quieter life in Vienna, Austria, has died. Marita Ruiter, who exhibited Mr. Bey's photos in her Luxembourg gallery, told the Austria Press Agency on Tuesday that he had died in Vienna on Sept. 30 after a long struggle with Parkinson's disease and was cremated Monday.

A Philadelphia jury yesterday spared Hakeem Bey death by lethal injection for the 2000 murder of a neighborhood rival who had ignited a street war by disrespecting Bey's brother. The 12 jurors deliberated about two hours in Common Pleas Court before deciding that Bey, 26, should spend the rest of his life in prison with no chance of parole. Bey showed no reaction. His parents and the mothers of his three children, ages 6, 2 and 1, seemed quietly relieved, though some were also plainly angry.
