Residents of Conestoga View, a Lancaster County nursing home, have received a cache of stolen property, but no one plans to charge them with a crime. In fact, the whole caper has the blessing of state Attorney General LeRoy S. Zimmerman, who approved the donation of several hundred bottles of cologne, numerous pairs of leather gloves and several rock-music cassettes. The stolen goods came from the home of a Lancaster county man arrested earlier this year on charges of selling stolen property.

Questioned by security at Philadelphia International Airport late Tuesday about a bottle of Diesel Green men's cologne he was carrying, a 22-year-old Saudi Arabian student responded by spraying himself and the three airport screeners who were checking him out. Big mistake. By the end of a long night, the FBI had responded, a hazardous-materials crew had been called, and everyone in contact with the cologne - including some people inside a Rite Aid store and a Dunkin' Donuts, and the emergency room at Methodist Hospital - had been quarantined.

WHEN YOU'RE one of 13 children, who needs friends? Robert Collins had a built-in playground with all those siblings. Maybe there was a problem when more than one had to use the bathroom, but basically all the brothers and sisters got along and enjoyed one another as playmates. Robert was the 10th of the 13 children of Jeannette Collins and Henry Stokes, and grew up in West Philadelphia. A man of many talents and interests, Robert was employed for 25 years by the international real-estate company Tishman Speyer, working in engineering on the Bala Plaza complex in Bala Cynwyd.

What would it take to become the most popular personality on the planet? Be a scientist who discovers the cure for all cancers? Broker a lasting peace in the Middle East? Be re-elected to a second term as leader of the free world? Or be like Mike? The answer, if you believe Michael Jordan's agent, David Falk, is be like Mike. Right now, according to Falk, Jordan is "the best-known and best-liked personality on earth. " It's a big job, but somebody has to do it. And the test of whether the popularity of Jordan, at 33 one of the biggest names in both sports and endorsements, can grow even further will come in the next week.

EXCERPTS from the handwritten first draft of Ralph Natale's memoir. * Referring to the 1918 flu pandemic that killed his paternal grandparents: "I write this to show where I came from and to explain also why I turned out to be what I am. My father never knew love or kindness from a mother or father, so how was he to know how to give this to his son? . . . So this made me unfeeling when, as a man, I took men's lives who wanted to take mine, or something that belonged to me or what I believed in at that time, 'La Cosa Nostra.' " * Philadelphia mob boss Angelo Bruno talking about Natale to Gambino crime-family boss Carlo Gambino in the 1960s; the conversation apparently was reconstructed by Natale, a former associate of Bruno: "He has killed without hesitation on my orders before, and has done this without creating a storm with the police.

Services will be held today for Bernard Bernkof, 79, a Bronze Star recipient during World War II whose greatest moment came when he found his Jewish parents in Cologne hiding from the Gestapo. Mr. Bernkof died Sept. 28 at his home in Lakeland, Fla. A South Jersey resident for 40 years, Mr. Bernkof, himself a native of Germany, came to the United States via Palestine in 1938 after fleeing the rising Nazi terror in 1932. Raised in Cologne, he had attended private schools there, majored in history in college and worked as a window decorator, work that was considered an art form, before fleeing the country.

Imagine: You're innocently standing in an airport doughnut shop, ordering crullers, and you end up in quarantine during a terrorism alert. Such was the fate of some travelers late Tuesday night at Philadelphia International Airport. After an X-ray machine showed a bottle of cologne in a carry-on bag, the passenger sprayed himself and three security screeners with the scent to prove it was harmless. The screeners sent him on his way. Then they had second thoughts. The passenger was a young man from Saudi Arabia, homeland of choice for the Sept.

If only Bruce Ferrell hadn't stopped to hold the door for the store security guard after he shoplifted a bottle of cologne and a cheap wristwatch. If only he hadn't then tussled with the guard when she confronted him. If only he hadn't made his getaway in a car registered to his grandmother. If only his mother hadn't identified him when police showed her a photo from the store's surveillance cameras. Then maybe a Delaware County jury wouldn't have convicted him of robbery on Wednesday.

THE WORLD has officially gone mad. Last week Cowboys running back Joseph Randle was arrested and charged with misdemeanor theft for allegedly shoplifting a package of men's briefs and a tester bottle of cologne at a shopping mall in Frisco, Texas, a Dallas suburb. Now comes word that MeUndies, which manufactures men's and women's underwear, is partnering with Randle to promote its brand. In addition, the fee Randle receives from MeUndies will help pay off the $29,500 fine imposed by the Cowboys.

For years, Ford has been building pocket-rocket variations on its Fiesta subcompact for European consumption. Now, finally, in the 2014 model year, North Americans are allowed to buy one, too. It's called the Fiesta ST, and it is a hoot. In fact, I can't remember having this much fun in a car that starts well under $22,000. The ST is essentially a garden variety Fiesta that received a large injection of anabolic steroids in its rear fascia. As a result, it is more muscular and athletic than its sensible-shoe sisters, and advertises that fact with sporty styling cues.

Maybe it's the cozy wooden chalets, clustered in cobblestone squares and filled with wooden toys that could have been crafted by elves. Or perhaps it's the likelihood of snow. Then again, it could be the abundance of free-flowing Glühwein, served in ceramic mugs decorated with wintry scenes of horse-drawn sleighs and reindeer. Whatever it might be, Germany's Christmas markets have the recipe for holiday cheer patented, bottled, and served up for conspicuous consumption. An evening spent mingling with the rosy-cheeked crowds in its historic cities could convert the most curmudgeonly Scrooge and the greenest of Grinches into a carol-singing, spiced-wine-swilling, stocking-stuffing seasonal junkie.

More than a month since his deal was reported, Colombian goalkeeper Faryd Mondragon is expected to be one of two newcomers the Union is scheduled to introduce this afternoon at a Center City watering hole. In fact, the announcement has taken so long, the event will take place at Fado Irish Pub (1500 Locust) perhaps because Union brass could use a drink after the diligence required to draw the 39-year-old to Philadelphia. First reported in the German magazine Kicker, the Daily News confirmed rumors on Dec. 13 that Mondragon had agreed to a contract, pending approval from Major League Soccer.

Listen up, men. It seems some of you are dropping the ball when it comes to your appearance - and you know whom I'm talking about. How many times do you hang out with friends dressed in shorts, T-shirts and baseball caps? Perhaps you go out on dates in the same? It's time you got your act together. Consider this a basic guide to "raising your game" in three areas: grooming, wardrobe and manners. Grooming I don't know what your excuse is, but looking as if you just rolled out of bed isn't a good look for anyone.

Having been launched into a major career with a number of important prizes and awards in the late 1970s and early '80s, Philadelphia-born concert pianist Peter Orth came home on Wednesday to the Kimmel Center's Perelman Theater with a conquer-the-world program, a vocal hometown reception, and, musically speaking, some very worrisome habits. On the plus side, the Cologne-based Orth has developed into a pianist who can make a simple descending scale in Liszt's Sonata in B minor emerge disarmingly with worlds of meaning, suggesting that he has earned the right to break the respectful distance that young artists keep from the great masterpieces of the piano repertoire.
