QVC program host Lisa Robertson rebuked another unwanted suitor yesterday. A Chester County judge signed an order prohibiting a Connecticut man from corresponding with Robertson or colleague Jacque Gonzales, who was reportedly used as a go-between. Robertson's fan, Peter Ferreira of Plainfield, Conn., was not able to attend the proceeding: He voluntarily committed himself to the psychiatric unit of a Connecticut hospital, court records said. "Sometimes when I watch, I believe you know, and may even hear, what I might be saying to myself," read one e-mail included in the injunction request.

CALIFORNIA came back to haunt Oded Daniel Gal again, 26 years after the private investigator hired two goons to beat up John Wayne's daughter there for a client. Today, Gal lives in a quiet town-house complex in Cherry Hill, though his car still has California tags and at least one of his phones has a California area code. Early on the morning of Dec. 4, agents with the U.S. Department of State Diplomatic Security Services visited the home and, according to court documents, arrested Gal for allegedly obtaining a passport in New York City in 2006 in the name of a California man who died in 1982.

Acting on a tip, the New Jersey Attorney General's Office late last year shut down a Web server in North Jersey that allowed subscribers around the globe to swap images of child pornography. Less than two months later, the Web site was back in business. Only this time, it was being run by the state Division of Criminal Justice as part of an undercover investigation called Operation Web Sweep. Yesterday, Attorney General David Samson disclosed that nearly 200 people worldwide - including teachers, police officers, and bus drivers - had been nabbed in the online sting.

Maybe the Phillies should have sent the Phanatic out there with his hot dog gun. Or how about recruiting cops who are little swifter than kids in sneakers? Maybe a few former defensive linemen able to finish a pursuit with a sack? In case you missed it, a Philadelphia police officer Tasered a teenage knucklehead during Monday night's Phillies game when the boy ran onto the field and proved hard to catch. Police Commissioner Charles H. Ramsey's first response to the latest embarrassment at Citizen's Bank Park was a vote of confidence.

A bare-chested, muscular young man is wearing dark aviator glasses, a leather cap and a pout. He is looking for talk, maybe something more. "Let's talk, guys," the ad says in Au Courant, Philadelphia's gay newspaper. He leaves a phone number, 976-0111. Call, and chat with up to 11 other hunks just like him. And if that's not enough to prompt the $3 call, there's another selling point in the ad: the seal of approval from an imaginary council on safe sex. Condoms might be safe in the AIDS era. A telephone is safer.

  NEWTOWN, Conn. – It was freezing outside the diner just off I-84, but Cole Depuy, wearing a Santa Claus hat and wrapped in a bright blue scarf, wasn't complaining. A large coffee can sat on the folding table in front of him, half-full with $10s and $20s and more than a few $50s - all, Depuy said, heading for families of the 26 people killed at his former elementary school Friday morning. "It's not much, but people want to help. You've got to give them an outlet," he said.

Preliminary tests indicated Vargas' blood-alcohol level exceeded the 0.08 legal definition of drunken driving. He was charged with felony hit-and-run, driving under the influence, and driving with an open container.

Agents allegedly heard the 14-year veteran identify himself as a police officer and say he was expecting a delivery from eBay. Instead, according to a federal indictment announced Wednesday, the package contained thousands of dollars worth of illegal steroids, mailed by his California connection.

He really gets passionate, and funny, when he talks about what it's like to be black and green: "Try this experiment. Go knock on someone's door in West Oakland, Watts or Newark and say: 'We got a really big problem!' They say: 'We do? We do?' 'Yeah, we got a really big problem!' 'We do? We do?'
