Inside Clarion University's Tippin Gymnasium, a typical wrestling match is taking place. Well, typical for this small rural community, at least. The Clarion cheerleaders are stationed along the edge of the mat in front of the stands. A makeshift student band is set up behind the home bench. The school's mascot, a blue and gold feathered Eagle, is all over the place. As you might have gathered, it is very noisy, even though only about 1,500 people have shown up to watch.

A good game for a receiver used to mean 100 yards to West Chester junior Kevin Ingram. A great game? Well, that would have been 200 yards. A 400-yard receiving game? That was beyond anything Ingram imagined before he took the field Oct. 31 against Clarion. "I definitely would have laughed if you said I would get 400 yards," said Ingram, a graduate of Harry S Truman High in Levittown. "No matter who it would have been getting it, I would have laughed. " As he went on to collect 401 yards on 13 catches in that game, which West Chester won, 44-40, Ingram suspected he had a pretty good game going.

Warm weather and a Division I swim program were too much of a lure for Doug Scott. So when the standout backstroke swimmer graduated from Conestoga in 1996, he headed for California State at Northridge to swim instead of Clarion (Pa.), where he had also been recruited heavily. "I was looking for a warmer climate, Cal State-Northridge had a good graphics design program, which I wanted and there was a chance to swim for a D-I [Division I] team," Scott said, recalling his choice.

There's no need to question the sanity of Don Martindell, the Philadelphia College of Bible men's basketball coach. He scheduled games against Kutztown, Clarion, Lycoming and Lock Haven for a reason. Martindell believes that by playing NCAA Division II and III teams, the Crimson Eagles will be tough enough to compete in the North Atlantic Christian Conference against the likes of rival Baptist Bible, ranked seventh in the nation in the National Christian College Athletic Association Division II poll.

MELISSA LYNCH was an actress with the knack of taking on the most diverse of roles and making them true. There was the delicate Sonya in Chekhov's "Uncle Vanya," in which she was attired in 19th-century Russian garb with severely pulled back hair. Then there were the tormented nun in "Agnes of God," the filthy young polio victim in "Bed Bound," the "dead-eyed hippie chick" in "When You Comin' Back Red Ryder. " She also donned the tights of Wonder Woman, played a cardinal's mistress in "The Duchess of Malfi," and a "foul-mouthed and seething" woman in the explosive "boom.

Mike Power is coming home to a new job in Doylestown, but not at his old school. The Central Bucks East graduate has been named boys' basketball coach at Central Bucks West. Power, a 1976 graduate of East and an assistant coach at Clarion (Pa.) University for the last three years, was the unanimous choice of a three-man committee to replace Wayne Finkbeiner as West coach. "Mike's whole demeanor has been very, very positive," said West athletic director Rod Stone, who was joined on the committee by Walter Smerconish and Adam Skelding, both guidance counselors at the school.

The town of Clarion sits in Pennsylvania's scrabbled strip mine country. Narvon is a rural crossroads in Lancaster County's rich Amish farm country. The tiny Susquehanna River town of Allenwood is best known as the home of a federal minimum-security prison. Although these communities are about as different as three towns can be, they share two things: All are proposed sites for hazardous waste installations, and the citizenry is up in arms. But after a nearly 15-year hiatus, Pennsylvania, prodded by federal regulations, is poised to issue permits for commercial hazardous waste treatment plants.

State universities in Pennsylvania could soon get a front-row seat on the Marcellus Shale industry. The state House passed a bill Tuesday allowing the state to lease mineral rights on some state-owned lands, allowing for natural-gas exploration, coal mining, and quarrying limestone around universities, prisons, and other state institutions. The Senate had previously approved the legislation. Supporters of the Indigenous Mineral Resources Development Act said it will provide new revenue streams for state agencies.

When George Michael thanked those in Saturday's crowd for attending his 25Live gig at the Wachovia Center, he credited their patience. The British song crafter acknowledged the difficulty of being a fan for all these years - yet by the end of the concert, he promised, the long stretch would seem like a breeze. He was right - but for the wrong reasons. Michael was referring to the fact that since his last American tour 17 years ago, he has been more famous for his foibles (including arrests for lewd conduct and drug possession)

There's always something corny to be said about hot sounds on cold nights when Latin music is involved. Take something chilly like the electronic-based Si S?. Its down-tempo grooves spun circles around the sell-out crowd at World Cafe Live Friday night. Think that doesn't merit cornball heat-miser comparisons? Wrong. Though their albums are informed by icy drum and bass, Si S?'s leaders, singer Carol C. (whose family is from the Dominican Republic) and keyboardist/programmer Cliff Cristafaro, brought moist-climate mood swings to the live setting.

Candice Dupree scored 29 points, including the game-winning three-point play with 2.8 seconds remaining in overtime, to lead No. 24 Temple (10-3) to a 66-64 win over La Salle yesterday. It was Temple's 24th straight Atlantic Ten Conference victory. After a three-point play by Crista Ricketts gave La Salle a 64-63 lead with 4.2 seconds left in OT, Temple had to go the length of the court. Lady Comfort passed to Dupree at the opposite foul line, and Dupree drove to the basket and was fouled by Ricketts for the decisive basket.

It's human nature to want to focus on your own problems. But sometimes the needs of the more vulnerable among us require the larger community take notice and help. That's where United Way comes in. The 2004-05 fund-raising campaign of the United Way of Southeastern Pennsylvania (Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia Counties) began Sept. 9 and ends in December. The goal is to raise $50.5 million - $2 million more than last year - for local nonprofit groups. The agency hopes to do so by connecting with thousands of volunteers and reaching people who have never before been involved in United Way. Understand that when you receive a United Way pledge card, you are part of a splendidly decent tradition that binds the most fortunate citizens to the neighbor across town going through a difficult time.
