He's done it again. In There I Was, Matthew Neenan has created a new work of tremendous power, grace, and style. It's luscious, quirky, and startling - often within the space of a few seconds. And throughout, it shows off the technical prowess, dramatic skills, and individual personalities of the dancers in BalletX, which began a five-day run at the Wilma Theater on Wednesday. I'm not convinced that the final sequence - an unsubtle antiwar message performed to Tom Waits' "Road to Peace" - really belongs here.

Sun Valley last week took care of one obstacle blocking its road to an unbeaten Del-Val League wrestling season. Now, only Penn Wood might bring the Vanguards to a halt. In what was supposed to be a league showdown of unbeaten teams Wednesday night, the Vanguards (15-1 overall, 6-0 league) won an easy 47-18 road victory over Harriton. "They moved their wrestlers down, figuring to win in the middle weight areas," said Sun Valley coach Chuck Grassano, whose team clinched at least a tie for the league title with the victory.

He appeared serene. Lying in an African mahogany casket, Cardinal John Krol still wore his silver, wire-rimmed glasses. His mouth curled slightly at the corners. Black rosary beads were wrapped around his left hand and placed in the palm of his right hand. "I saw a smile on his face," said Ted Perkoski, a telephone salesman from Overbrook. "He seems at peace. " Perkoski was among more than 1,500 area worshipers who attended a public viewing last night at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in Wynnewood.

Long before pink ribbons signified the fight against breast cancer, yellow wreaths supported American troops in combat, or green labels equaled all things organic, African Americans were wearing black to show solidarity in the civil rights movement. Yesterday, thousands of protesters descended on Jena, La., dressed in head-to-toe noir, to show their anger with the treatment of six black teenagers. Close to 600 Temple University students wore black casual clothes to protest as well.

More than a year ago, Greg and Grace Ross of Moorestown plopped down a sizable sum of cash and joined what promised to become Olde York Country Club. Shortly thereafter, Grace Ross first laid eyes on the Chesterfield property, which had been a horse farm during the preceding decade. She told her husband: "This is not a golf course. All there is is dirt. " Yesterday, she was singing a happier tune, and so were most of the more than 200 other members who showed up to watch South African star Gary Player dedicate his latest signature golf course.

Into the Salt Palace glides Christopher Bowman, a dark presence on a painfully clear, sunny day. His pitch-black hair is poufed high and stapled into place with hair spray. He is wearing a black turtleneck, black pants, black socks, black loafers. On each finger is a blocky black ring. Under each eye is a black circle. The only patches of light are the white checks in his black-and-white houndstooth blazer. It is a theatrical entrance that Christopher Bowman makes, one that he doesn't apologize for. "I know that this is supposed to be a sport," Bowman said.
