WHEN THE Bulletin closed in 1982, it was a considerable blow to the McBride family. In fact, the family tried to keep it open as best they could. They demonstrated at the building at 30th and Market streets, even holding a candlelight vigil. Nothing worked, of course. The 135-year-old newspaper was doomed. The emotional attachment was a family affair. The late Bill McBride, who died in 1978, was a longtime Bulletin sportswriter, specializing in horse racing, and other family members worked there over the years.

Bobby's Run, Lumberton Township, Burlington County Some might feel that 10 home designs in a new development would be enough to satisfy most home buyers . . . especially when each standard design offers three different exteriors . . . and the standard homes (one of which is a ranch) have three, four or five bedrooms with 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 baths. But at Bobby's Run, the builder created a "made to order" program to satisfy the buyer's need to truly personalize the home. Made to order - or semicustomizing, as this type of service is often called - is usually offered to some degree by most builders, especially in smaller developments.

Mary and Bill McBride might as well be preparing for a blizzard. They've stocked their Ardmore home with enough food, drinks, and toilet paper to sustain at least 15 friends and relatives for the next week. Instead of snow, however, they are awaiting a storm of people, nearly 200,000 of them, that the U.S. Open is expected to deliver practically to their front yard. The McBrides' home abuts the historic Merion Golf Club, where bright and early Monday the U.S. Open begins with the first of three days of practice rounds before culminating with a four-day tournament by the world's best golfers.

After his team won three matches in a row heading into a second-round playoff meeting with top-seeded Cherry Hill East, Washington Township tennis coach Bill McBride racked his brain for a way to motivate his players. He stayed up all night the night before planning a speech, but it had less than the desired effect. The coach gathered his team together on the court and was halfway through the speech when one of his captains asked to be excused to use the bathroom. An incredulous McBride couldn't help but laugh.

Washington Township's first-doubles duo of Aniket Dutta and Dave Day are terrific friends, on and off the court. The two also share blistering serves that have turned out to be a mixed blessing. The pair compiled a 7-2 record before Dutta hit Day in the head with a serve last week and gave him a concussion. "I felt awful," Dutta said, though he added that there were no hard feelings, and the two laugh about it now. Day should be cleared to return to the court tomorrow, even though he had been begging his coach, Bill McBride, to let him play sooner.

It seems far too early in the season to be using words such as balanced and experienced when describing a team, but members of the Washington Township tennis squad use those terms, and probably for good reason. Yesterday, playing under blue skies and in springtime temperatures, the Minutemen used their balance and experience to defeat Shawnee, 4-1, in an Olympic Conference American Division matchup. Ranked No. 4 in The Inquirer's top 10, Township (4-0) handed the fifth-ranked Renegades (1-1)

JACK McBRIDE'S DOOR was always open. Friends, friends of friends, his sons' friends - all were welcome to drop in anytime, check out the refrigerator, have a meal, sleep over if they wanted to. A happy, congenial Irishman, Jack was the kind of guy who always gave of himself, whether it was to his five sons, his cherished grandkids or his many friends. Jack was there with an open door and an open heart. And his grandkids could wrap him around their fingers. They were spoiled rotten by Grandad.

THE BIG picture last night was that President Bush put his personal prestige on the line by aggressively campaigning for GOP candidates - and accomplished the politically unthinkable. Traditionally, the party in the White House has lost seats in Congress in the middle of its first term. But it was clear early today that Republicans had not only kept their narrow control of the House but had an excellent chance of retaking the Senate. How'd Bush do it? Experts note that the hangover from 9/11 meant that while Americans were nervous about both the economy and homeland security, they blame the problems on al Qaeda, not on the Bush White House.

Jeb Bush asked, "Do you think you're undertaxed?" The Florida governor had planted himself on Susana Creft's doorstep, anxious to deliver his reelection message. She, of course, replied that no, she didn't feel undertaxed. So he slipped her the word about lawyer Bill McBride, the novice Democratic candidate who is trying to end Bush's reign. He leaned over Creft, blocking the sun - he's a big guy, 6-foot-3, sweating in the sultry air - and confided that if McBride beats him Tuesday, "your taxes will go up. " Actually, McBride has pledged only to raise the cigarette levy.

Tonight in Florida, Gov. Jeb Bush will probably find out whether his November reelection is imperiled. And tonight in New Hampshire, President Bush may gain insight into whether his party has a decent chance in November to erase the Democrats' one-seat majority in the Senate. The Bush brothers are paying close attention to the Democratic gubernatorial primary in the Sunshine State (starring Janet Reno) and the Republican senatorial primary in the Granite State (featuring a GOP family feud)

The new trend in American politics: Pick your opponent. You need a lot of money, shrewd media advisers and a willingness to break with niceties of the past. The game is simple. A candidate decides which of his or her potential adversaries would make the strongest general election foe and then dumps money on attack ads against that rival before the opposition holds its primary. The hope is that the voters in the other party will reject the strong opponent, and nominate someone who (the candidate thinks)
