You may be immersed in the final season of Rescue Me , but John Scurti and the rest of the cast of FX's towering inferno of a series said goodbye more than a year ago when the episodes you're seeing now were shot. "It seems like a distant but pleasant memory," says Scurti of the show, which runs until Sept. 7. For seven years, as FDNY Lt. Kenny Shea, Scurti played Falstaff to Denis Leary's haunted Hal. The guys in the firehouse always called him Lou, an affectionate acknowledgment of his rank.

They say that if you lie down with dogs, you wake up with fleas, but they're wrong. If you lie down with dogs, you wake up with ticks. The other day, I fell asleep with Little Tony and Peach, and I woke up with a tick on my chin, like a mole. It works for Cindy Crawford, but not for me. I'll never get a date if I wear bugs. I ran yelping to the bathroom, where I took off my nightgown and found another tick on my back. Don't ask me how it got under my nightgown. Obviously, ticks find me superhot.

In a city bursting with celebrities, the latest star is not a person but a building: the new Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle, gleaming in grayish-blue glass and offering a hawk's-eye view of Central Park. Cindy Crawford, Dr. Ruth Westheimer, Gov. George Pataki, and Time Warner chief executive Richard Parsons all attended a grand-opening party Wednesday night. Comedian Jon Stewart, the supernaturally flexible performing group Cirque du Soleil, and singers Jewel and Marc Anthony entertained.

IGREW UP in Philadelphia and live in St. Louis. The tongue-in-cheek, I suspect, "St. Louis Hater's Guide" does make Philadelphia seem like the stereotype of an insensitive and rowdy community. It is easy to find fault with our older cities. We're not in the Sunbelt. We fight to preserve what we have. We struggle with crumbling inner cities. On Sunday, a game will be played in the Dome. The best team will win the day. After the game, both St. Louis and Philadelphia will go on - great cities with great people - one the gateway to American democracy and the other the gateway to the West.

When Chadds Ford resident Cindy Crawford brought her newly adopted daughter, Allysa, home from Russia, she still had to go through months of red tape to make her a citizen. More than a year later, it was official. Allysa's naturalization was marked quietly by a certificate in the mailbox. "We had made this amazing trip overseas, filed tons of paperwork, and waited and waited to hear," Crawford said. "When we did, it was sort of like, 'That's it?' It wasn't real symbolic of the meaning that she was finally here.

Down-to-earth colors with heavenly touches are the look for a spring face. Classic pinks, nudes, blues with angelic accents make the season pretty and girly. Makeup reflects the calm before the next century, beauty experts say. "It's a return to femininity, with warm, quiet hues, white-infused colors - but there's also a new transparent sense of shimmer to them. The look is natural, with a soft, iridescent trace of shine. Sheer foundations that offer a lightweight coverage are the basis for a spring look," says Robert Johnson, makeup artist for such celebrities as singer Madonna, and supermodels Cindy Crawford and Naomi Campbell.

When Bill Goldberg played football at the University of Georgia, an opposing coach called him a "gun-totin', knife-totin' bad guy. " "I remember the day he said it," Goldberg said. "I originally thought it was a knock on me. . . . On the contrary, he was giving me the highest compliment. He said it doesn't matter what it takes to win, I'll do it. " In fact, practically all Goldberg does these days is win. As a pro wrestler, he won his first 174 matches. Although he actually lost on Sunday - to Kevin Nash, thanks to interference from Nash's friends and a pesky stun gun - he'll take a 174-1 record into tonight's World Championship Wrestling show at the First Union Spectrum.

Cindy Crawford got pieces of glass in her eyes when her husband ran their Jeep into a concrete mailbox to avoid hitting a horse on Pacific Coast Highway. Paramedics washed the supermodel's eyes with water after the accident Sunday, Sheriff's Deputy Cruz Solis said. She wasn't hospitalized and her husband, Rande Gerber, wasn't injured or cited. Gerber lost control of the Jeep after swerving to miss the horse. The passenger window shattered. Crawford, 32, married the bar owner and former model in May. NO NEPOTISM Kelly Preston says she could have asked hubby John Travolta to demand that she appear as his co-star in "Phenomenon," but she wanted to make it on her own. Preston said in the upcoming USA Weekend magazine that she screen-tested for the part and was passed over for Kyra Sedgwick.

Count another U.S. designer down, but not out. Todd Oldham, the great ringmaster of fashion, is scaling down his money-losing designer collection after eight years. Oldham stunned an already shell-shocked industry last week with the announcement that he would close his wholesale business, no longer selling his over-the-top designs to retailers. Instead, he will offer his expensive threads only through his two boutiques, in Miami and New York. Oldham's announcement last week continues a spate of designer failures as the industry comes to grips with business realities and economies of scale.

Every summer, the nation's TV critics gather in Southern California to be introduced to the stars and executives of all the new fall programs. Mostly, the stars and executives just sit up on a stage, and a roomful of journalists fires questions. But sometimes, the presentations are a little more creative. We had coffee with the cast members of Friends, back when they were nobodies. We had breakfast with one of those famous New Orleans chefs, sponsored by the TV Food Network.
