IF CHRISTINA SANKEY had been an angel-faced toddler when she went missing, we might know by now how she wound up dead, half-naked and alone, between two parked cars in West Philly on a frigid winter morning. The city would've been galvanized by her death. Government officials would've promised to find out how she met her tragic end. Someone would've created a sidewalk memorial, and others would've led prayer vigils to honor the life that was lost. But Christina, 37, had the mentality of a 2-year-old, but not the physique.

A question presented itself Wednesday in regard to those Haverford Township pols who have been handing out federal surplus cheese from their homes and campaign headquarters. Do they make the poor and elderly come around to the back door?

THE INSURANCE INSTITUTE for Highway Safety's recent report on red-light cameras on Roosevelt Boulevard supports our contention that motorists, no matter their age, are just kids at heart - they'll try to get away with as much as you let them. The cameras and extended yellow signals at the Grant Avenue and Red Lion Road intersections, two of the deadliest in the country, have led to a striking drop in red-light runners, the report said, from 251 violations per 10,000 vehicles in 2004, to 1.8 per 10,000 in 2006.

Few things are as fleeting as the sweetness of fresh mozzarella. The richness of its butterfat begins to fade literally within an hour or two of the moment it was turned into a milky white orb. And it's hard to find any fresher than those rolling off the imported mozzarella machine at Claudio's Caseificio in the Italian Market. "Mozzarella's like bread," says owner Sal Auriemma. "You don't buy it today to eat next week. " Auriemma and his sons, Claudio and Sal Jr., have perfected the delicate texture and lightly salted tang of their cheese since opening this annex to the family's cheese and import market four summers ago. Sliced into lusciously thick white rounds, I can think of no better homage to the blushing tomatoes and plumes of basil that make summer's farm-market bounty so fleeting, too. Fresh mozzarella costs $6.99 a pound at Claudio's Caseificio, 922 S. 9th St., 215-238-0435.

Move over wine and cheese. Beer and cheese are a match made in culinary heaven. "The carbonation in beer cuts through the richness of cheese," said Tria Fermentation School director Erin McLean. She offered these pairings for your next party: _ Robust dark imperial stout with a cow's milk bleu, Stilton or a sweeter Gorgonzola. _ Hoppy, citrusy India pale ale with aged farmhouse-style English or Vermont cheddar. _ Fruity, sweeter lambic with a rich triple crème or Brie. _ Malt-driven amber ale or German double bock with aged Gouda.

There is a pecorino for every mood in Italy, where the milk from sheep ( pecora ) is formed into hundreds of variations, from the famous hard grating cheese of Rome (Romano) to softer versions like foglie noce, a delicacy from Emilia-Romagna wrapped in walnut leaves. When I'm craving a simple snack, I find this Rustico studded with black peppercorns to be irresistible. It's firm but softer than Romano, and the nutty, waxy paste tastes all the creamier when your teeth crack through the musky spice of a peppercorn.

Picture new grasses poking through soil, the first wildflowers sending out buds as thin as crepe paper. Then picture a barn animal let loose on the first spring pasture. Picture its eyes widening at the sight and smell of so many jewel-colored edibles - after four or five months of hay. The flavors of spring flora are tender and herbaceous - which is why cheese made from spring milk lives in a rarefied realm. Over the next few weeks, local cheese counters will set out an array of the supplest cheeses imaginable.

THE CHEESE may stand alone, but the Swiss Cheese Pervert's alleged victims are standing together. After Christopher Pagano, 41, made headlines in January for allegedly driving around Mayfair and exposing himself to three women while he asked them to pleasure him with Swiss cheese, a fourth alleged victim came forward to police on her own accord, the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office said. Already charged with three counts each of stalking, indecent exposure, harassment and open lewdness for his previous three alleged victims, Pagano yesterday was hit with all those charges again for the fourth victim, according to the D.A.'s office.

THE so-called Swiss Cheese Pervert is receiving "inpatient treatment," a judge was told yesterday. Just what type of treatment Christopher Pagano is undergoing was not revealed in court by his lawyer, Richard Quinton Hark, who also declined to specify it during an interview. Pagano, the Norristown man arrested in January for flashing his cheese-accessorized penis, was not in court to hear that his preliminary hearing was scheduled for April 10. The District Attorney's Office also informed Municipal Judge Wendy L. Pew that it will try Pagano by a jury rather than by judge, which it has a legal right to do despite the charges being misdemeanors.

THE ALLEGED "Swiss Cheese Pervert" remained in police custody last night, according to court records, after being arraigned early yesterday. Chris Pagano, 41, was holed up at Curran-Fromhold Correctional Facility in Holmesburg, the records show. His bail was set at $30,000. Pagano is charged with stalking, indecent exposure and related offenses, according to police. The charges stem from three incidents - one in January 2013 on Frankford Avenue near Bleigh; one Jan. 5 on Frankford Avenue near Princeton; and another Jan. 5 on Chippendale Street near Erdrick - in which he allegedly approached women with his genitals exposed and asked them to perform sexual acts on him with a piece of Swiss cheese.

ANY WAY YOU slice it, Mayfair's "Swiss Cheese Pervert" is closer to getting caught. Lt. Anthony McFadden, of the Police Department's Special Victims Unit, confirmed yesterday that detectives are investigating a man in the case. McFadden declined to identify the man, saying it's "too early in the investigation" to do so. The potential suspect was identified after detectives from the SVU reached out to women from the Mayfair area who had previously told police they were approached by the "Swiss Cheese Pervert," McFadden said.

SWISS CHEESE, STINKY feet, chocolate pudding: There's no telling what gets someone's blood pumping below the belt. But one expert says that when a sexual fetish becomes an obsession - when it literally gets exposed to the public as it has for Philadelphia's "Swiss Cheese Pervert" - the combo of fromage and adrenaline can be an unsavory mix. "Yeah, it's pretty weird, but with food, who knows. It's surprising, but it isn't shocking," said Gloria Brame, a certified clinical sexologist from Georgia who wrote her dissertation on "kink and fetishes.

In this place known as the "Blueberry Capital of the World," which has also been called the most Italian place in New Jersey, they really like their provolone, especially around Christmastime. Between early December and Super Bowl Sunday, 2,800 pounds of the piquant cheese, in the shape of 10-foot-long torpedoes, will be completely sold out at Bagliani's Market, an Italian American grocery store that has elevated cheese-cutting to a celebrated annual holiday tradition. Census figures show nearly 45 percent of Hammonton's 14,700 residents are of Italian descent - only Toms River has more Italian Americans, about 30,000, but in a lesser concentration: 33 percent of the population of 89,000 people in that Ocean County township.
