Luke Duris wasn't trying to score the goal that sent Holy Ghost Prep back to Hershey. He was standing more than 40 yards away from the net, and he isn't crazy. He was simply aiming for his teammate's head. "That's a far kick," Duris said. "I wasn't going to shoot it. . . . The goal is to find Joey Braun's head and whip it in as hard as you can. " Instead, Duris drilled his direct kick over the goalie with 23 minutes, 1 second remaining in the first half to send Holy Ghost Prep to a 2-1 victory over Fleetwood in a PIAA Class AA boys' soccer semifinal Tuesday night at Souderton.

1 CHOCOLATE Bar none, it's the mother of all aphrodisiac foods, containing complex compounds that flood our brains with dopamine - the love chemical that's released during orgasm. Studies indicate eating chocolate in moderation is good for the heart. 2 FIGS They've had a rep as the sexy fruit since biblical times. Some cultures associate an open fig with female sex organs; ancient cultures considered it a talisman of love and fertility. 3 AVOCADO Rich in folic acid, vitamin B6 and potassium, this fruit was revered by the Aztecs, who thought avocados resembled testicles and increased sexual desire.

By Gerard Shields Ever since Mom spent a year in the hospital with tuberculosis when I was 12, going to doctors' offices or the emergency room with her had been pretty routine. So, years later, I thought nothing of one of our doctor visits, idly thumbing through magazines until I noticed Mom twitching her fingers. I realized the source of her anxiety when I saw the sign on the doctor's door: It said "oncologist. " I should've known something was wrong when Mom started stockpiling candy bars in the freezer.

It becomes clear as Tim Mountz rhapsodizes about the pawpaws he has been foraging near the Susquehanna, shaking trees, having them rain down - by the dozens! - that Chris Curtin has no clue what he's talking about. The two of them are at the big pine table at Talula's Table, the Kennett Square ode to local eating - Mountz, who grows heirloom tomatoes and 20 varieties of fingerling potatoes and herbs at his Happy Cat Farm, spread discreetly on the gentle hills of Winterthur, the du Pont estate; Curtin, the European-trained chocolatier, who heads up Éclat Chocolate, the high-end, artisanal chocolate shop in West Chester.

Walter Mosley is the author of many books, including the Easy Rawlins mysteries Yesterday marked two years since Hurricane Katrina descended on Louisiana and Mississippi, on Aug. 29, 2005. I hesitate to call it an anniversary because the word implies, in some way, a celebration, a birth. What we are scratching on the calendar is more like a notch on a raw gravestone, a count of the days and years that have passed without a reckoning for those who died, those who lost loved ones, and for a city that is still in critical condition.

When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I felt as a child, I thought as a child. Indeed, I drank hot chocolate as a child - from a packet of dry powder stirred into scalded milk, with the occasional small white dehydrated cube reputed to be a marshmallow. And I was happy. But now that I am grown, I have put away (some) childish things, and chief among them is inferior hot chocolate. Apparently, I am not alone. There's a whole new world of drinking chocolates out there - made with shavings, chunks and nibs of high-end, intense dark chocolate, not cocoa powder - and aimed at adult women, says Pam Williams of Ecole Chocolat, an online school for chocolatiers.

Once Americans fell in love with gourmet chocolate, it was only a matter of time before chocolatiers found a way to honor Elvis. Oh, the Swiss can take credit for developing milk chocolate, and the Belgians for molding it into fancy shapes. But as Americans have indulged cravings for bonbons with a fancier pedigree than Hershey's or Mars, they also have indulged their need for endless variety. And no place satisfies that lust better than New York. In the city's posh chocolate shops, many of which opened in the last few years, cocoa fiends can find the finest selection of luxury candies in America.

NESTLE AERO. 45 cents per 1.4-ounce chocolate bar. Also available in 9.9- ounce bag of 34 snack-sized bars. BONNIE: Nestle's says it's made this new milk chocolate-covered, aerated dark chocolate bar, now in test market in parts of the Midwest and Southwest, for women. But for the life of me I can't figure out why. It's not for women concerned about fat and calories, because Aero contains about the same amount of fat and calories as a regular Nestle bar. Women who like milk chocolate won't like that it contains dark chocolate.
