RYNE SANDBERG has the difficult job. He has to decide what players are going to be included and left out of his lineup every night. When the skipper makes his decision, he hands over the results to be printed on a lineup card. Unlike other major league teams, the Phillies do not just type the names in a computer and print it out for circulation. They turn the pen over to Pete Mackanin, their third-base coach who has a unique handwriting talent. Mackanin has a beautiful, eloquent, calligraphy-style writing that he brings to the lineup card every game of the season.

PHILADELPHIA Archbishop Charles Chaput was to host a town-hall meeting today to announce marketing procedures to encourage increases in enrollment in Catholic high schools. Leaders of the 17 archdiocesan high schools were to gather at the Archdiocese Pastoral Center, 222 N. 17th St., to learn how to become "active ambassadors" for their schools. Catholic high-school and elementary students may log on to the Archdiocese's website ( www.archphila.org ) to ask questions via two-way web conferencing.

Monsignor Bonner and Archbishop Prendergast, appealing the Archdiocese of Philadelphia's recommendation that the school be closed, surpassed the $1 million fund-raising target today around noon. "We had some big donations come in over the weekend," the largest an anonymous gift of $100,000, said Joe Mattson, president of the Monsignor Bonner Alumni Association. The money for the Catholic high school in Upper Darby has come from all sorts of donors, from strangers to even a parent at rival Catholic high school Cardinal O'Hara in neighboring Springfield.

Turnabout is fair play. And lots of fun for New Hope's Paul Marturano, a.k.a. "Pauly Nipple. " The day after singing his creepy "Stalker" to Paula Abdul on American Idol , the 32-year-old club-and-college singer was lustily pursued for media appearances. On last night's Access Hollywood , which made him its lead story, Marturano said, "I've been up since 6 a.m. and on the phone with every radio station across the country and it seems everybody got a kick out of it. " This morning, he said, he's lined up to do another 20 or so shows - and share the part of the story Idol viewers didn't see. Unlike most of the Fox hit's other loony attention-seekers, Marturano dressed like a normal guy (baggy shirt and faded jeans)

LOUIS SPADACCINI, who once assisted judges in Philadelphia courtrooms and coached the boys' baseball team at a Catholic high school, became a convicted felon Wednesday after pleading guilty to sexually assaulting one of his teen players and getting another high. The crimes, which took place last year at a South Philadelphia Holiday Inn and at Spadaccini's Iseminger Street home near Oregon Avenue, shocked the Criminal Justice Center, where he had worked since 1998, and Ss. Neumann-Goretti High School, where he had been known as "Coach Lou" since 2006.

HILLTOWN The Philadelphia Archdiocese plans to sell another large piece of land that it owns in Bucks County. It's a 68-acre parcel that was once intended to be a Catholic high school in Hilltown. Archdiocese spokesman Ken Gavin said it scrapped its plans to build a high school along Route 152 because "it became apparent there was not a need. " The archdiocese is in negotiations to sell the land for $2.6 million to an undisclosed buyer to help lessen an $82 million shortfall. The archdiocese hopes to close on another deal in December to sell 48 acres it owns in Plumstead to a farmer for more than $800,000, Gavin said.

Catholic high school bands did not march in Gov. Rendell's parade yesterday. "We invited them, but we were told there were scheduling conflicts," said Bill Epstein, a spokesman for Rendell. He said two bands had been invited. Rendell, whose support for abortion rights runs counter to the Catholic Church, was endorsed during the campaign by the National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League, the nation's most powerful abortion-rights group. He has said that as governor, he will block any attempt to restrict the availability of abortion in the state.

As students, faculty, and parents waited anxiously in the gym at Conwell-Egan High School last month to learn the fate of their school, alumni talked proudly of its heritage. Women recalled the all-girls Bishop Conwell High School in Levittown. Men remembered the all-boys Bishop Egan High School in Fairless Hills. And Cass Loveless, Class of 1961, boasted about an earlier, forgotten time, when Bishop Egan opened as the first Catholic high school in lower Bucks County, with 605 boys and girls taking classes, eating lunch, and going to dances together.

In Baton Rouge, the place to go when the big game is on is Walk-On's Bistreaux and Bar on Burbank Drive, within staggering-home distance of the campus at Louisiana State University, and J.P. Kelly was there Tuesday night. Kelly is the athletic director at Catholic High School, Aaron Nola's alma mater. He knows Nola well, and he was not going to miss the chance to see the kid's first major-league start. Few in Baton Rouge were. A local sports-talk station had set up a 24-hour countdown clock that expired when Nola threw his first pitch Tuesday.

Teachers at the Archdiocese of Philadelphia's 17 high schools voted Wednesday to ratify a one-year labor contract. The contract provides the union's 625 members with $1,350 salary raises. A previous contract, which only guaranteed $1,200 raises, was rejected unanimously at a May 27 meeting. The average Catholic high school teacher has 20 years of experience and is paid $49,000 annually. Rita Schwartz, president of Local 1776 of the Association of Catholic Teachers, said her members rejected the original contract because the pay raise did not cover increasing medical insurance premiums.

GOD BLESS those Daily News readers. A columnist writes in relative darkness, hearing only the sound of her own plaintive voice, pouring words and passion onto the page (or keyboard). She senses that there are people out there, beyond the narrow arc of her heavily-corrected vision, ready to digest what she - or someone else - has to say. But it's lonely there, inside her head, without any confirmation that the thoughts she's so carefully transplanted into the garden of public consumption will actually be sampled.
