Q: I have been with my fiancée for almost six years. We were engaged and moved into a house a few months ago. Now she says she needs time and space to figure things out. Do I give her time? If so, how much? Steve: I suspect there's a specific reason for her cold feet. Find out what it is. Mia: If things drag on too long, it's not as if you have to sit around and wait for Miss Thing to make up her mind. You need to be living your life, and if that includes dating other honeys, then so be it. Don't be sneaky about it, though.

Mayor Rendell had wanted to marry 2,000 people on New Year's Eve. Now he'd be happy with just 2,000 hands joining, he joked yesterday. It was the last day to get marriage licenses to take part in the mass wedding of 1,000 couples, to be presided over by the mayor and his wife, U.S. District Judge Marjorie Rendell. A steady stream of the betrothed did make it to City Hall to sign up. But as of 11 a.m., a couples deficit of between 200 and 300 still remained, Rendell said during a news conference where he also discussed other Millennium Celebration events and vouched for the safety of the city-sponsored festivities.

Buffalo businessman Mark Hamister suspended his bid to purchase the bankrupt Buffalo Sabres yesterday and might withdraw completely now that his partner has pulled out. Hamister's decision places the team's future in jeopardy beyond the end of this season. The announcement came hours before he faced a fourth and likely final deadline from the NHL to sign an asset purchase agreement to complete his conditional purchase of the Sabres. The decision also came as Hamister's majority partner, Todd Berman, president and founder of New York City-based Chartwell Investments, withdrew his financial support.

If you want to keep your feet warm, wear a hat. If you want to keep your nose warm, wear mittens. Got that? Now that we've been hit by the first real cold spell of the winter, Dr. Scot Malay of the Pennsylvania School of Podiatric Medicine has a bit of warm advice. "When the body is cold," he explains, "the nervous system automatically moves blood from nose, fingers, ears and toes to the body's core in order to protect our vital organs - the heart, lungs and kidney. Which means that if your body is losing heat because your head is uncovered, this shunting process will take place even though you may be wearing warm boots.

The only reason the Old City real-estate heiress wasn't killed at the same time as her lawyer companion in 1998 was that one of two bandits suddenly got cold feet, said the prosecutor. The men had planned to rob and kill both women, but Darryl Robinson, 39, "was reluctant to participate," Assistant District Attorney Roger King told a jury yesterday. King made his remark while outlining his case at the opening of Darrell Newkirk's murder trial before Common Pleas Judge Jane Cutler Greenspan.

Organizers of Philadelphia's Millennium Celebration yesterday moved to quash rumors that the mass wedding of 1,000 couples at the Convention Center was off. "There is no way we are going to cancel this," said Millennium Philadelphia executive director Amy Needle. She said rumors probably began when word circulated that a couple of hundred couples had dropped out of the New Year's Eve ceremony, to be presided over by Mayor Rendell and his wife, U.S. Circuit Judge Marjorie Rendell.

You get the feeling that a lot of whiskey went into the making of "Cold Feet," a cowboy comedy about three swindlers who smuggle jewels over the border inside a horse. Now, you don't see any whiskey on the screen. Nobody does much drinking at all, not even beer. I see the whiskey as being involved more in the formative stages of this movie. Guys with boots and jeans and flannel shirts drinking Wild Turkey and thinking up ideas for this cockeyed, often funny movie. Those kinds of discussion could well result in the kind of characters we meet in "Cold Feet," like the deranged hit man Kenny (Tom Waits)

Perhaps Michael Orlando misunderstood Ocean County, N.J., authorities and thought he was needed for "underwater work," instead of "undercover work. " Police thought equipping Orlando with $500 in marked money and a wireless transmitter might land a big fish in an auto theft ring. They never thought he would get cold feet, bolt and jump into a lake, ruining the "wire" and soaking the money. It all started last year when Orlando, 23, of Lacy Township, was charged with stealing a pickup truck from a Toms River auto dealer, according to Investigator Michael Murray of the Ocean County Prosecutor's office.

Accused drug dealer Benjamin White, 20, apparently decided it would be too trying to hear cops testifying against him. So he decided not to show up at his trial this week, after being warned that if he didn't show, the case would go on without him. It did, and after two days, a jury convicted White, formerly of Wynnewood Road, of taking part in the sale of drugs to an undercover cop earlier this year. Common Pleas Judge Eugene E.J. Maier then sentenced him to eight to 16 years in jail and six years probation, and fined him $5,000.

Charles Gore apparently got cold feet after the start of his aggravated assault trial on Tuesday. "He went to lunch and never came back to court," said Assistant District Attorney Richard Sax. Common Pleas Judge Sandra Mazer Moss ordered the trial to continue in Gore's absence yesterday and a jury convicted him after deliberating for about 10 minutes. "He probably realized that he had no chance to win," said Sax. "He heard two police officers testify and decided to jump bail of $50,000.
