Mike Keenan butted heads with his best player yesterday at practice. The Blackhawks' coach, noting Denis Savard's refusal to perform a skating drill correctly, whistled Savard's group to do starts and stops (wind sprints). Savard completed each dash with a lazy circle instead of a stop. When the former Flyers coach continued to whistle for more repetitions, the 27-year-old center attempted to skate off the Chicago Stadium ice. The Blackhawks' captain was stopped at the gate by veterans Doug Wilson and Keith Brown and told to go back and complete the drill with the rest of the team.

Scheduled to close Sunday after two weeks of previews and only a month's run at the little Perry Street Theater in Greenwich Village, the production has tentatively been extended through Jan. 28.

As Pennsylvania Sen. Hugh Scott's chief of staff during the entire Watergate saga, I was interested to read Trudy Rubin's column Sunday and see the parallels between then and now. I would suggest that what Scott did took more political courage than any action being considered by any Republican senator now. The end game then was an incumbent president's removal from office. Scott, who was the minority leader, led moderate senators in the so-called eastern Republican establishment, yet reached out to Sen. Barry Goldwater of Arizona, leader of the party's conservative wing, to meet with President Nixon.

A Camden Municipal Court judge yesterday dismissed assault charges against Camden activist Mangaliso Davis stemming from a confrontation with two Camden city councilmen during a heated council debate. But Judge Jack McFeeley warned Davis that the charges filed by Michael Devlin and Angel Fuentes could be reinstated if a similar incident occurred. Davis, who serves on the county Human Relations Commission, admitted to the court that the confrontation did take place, and he apologized in a low, barely audible voice.

There will be those who'll say the NBA's five-game suspension of Knicks center Antonio Davis - who went into the stands at the United Center on Wednesday during New York's overtime loss to the Bulls when he thought his wife, Kendra, was in distress after a confrontation with a fan - was too lenient. The critics will say that in a post-Ron Artest NBA world, anyone going up among the paying public should be subject to, at minimum, a double-figure sitdown. This time, those critics are wrong.

A former city worker was convicted yesterday of misdemeanor harassment and making terroristic threats during an election-season confrontation outside mayoral challenger Sam Katz's North Philadelphia campaign office last year. Municipal Court Judge Felice R. Stack sentenced Joey Temple, 52, to two years of probation plus anger-management classes, Assistant District Attorney Kalli Agelakis said. The victim, landlord Lewis Harris, testified yesterday that Temple cursed at him on Aug. 26, threatening to beat him and to burn down the building at 1704 N. 22d St. Two other witnesses corroborated Harris' account.

State Rep. Thaddeus Kirkland (D., Delaware) will face a hearing March 25 on charges of simple and aggravated assault stemming from a quarrel in which a teenage neighbor says Kirkland punched him in the face. Yesterday, Kirkland said he had not hit the man. Both sides agree that the incident began when Robert Church, 18, of the 1000 block of West Seventh Street, hit Kirkland's rottweiler with a bottle March 2 as he was passing the state representative's house on the same block.

AT FIRST, the showing of contrition might have seemed rather automatic, like a checkdown in the face of a blitz. Clearly, Nigel Bradham and Nelson Agholor knew what they were expected to say, in their first encounters with reporters since they made news for questionable off-the-field conduct. But both Eagles spoke long enough after the team's first full-squad practice of training camp to go beyond scripted talking points. Both Bradham and Agholor seem at least to understand that they put themselves and the team in an unfavorable light, and that they don't want this to happen again.

Andrea Constand waited a year to tell anyone that Bill Cosby had sexually assaulted her, she said, because she was "emotionally shocked" and needed time to work through her feelings. "I want to say there was an element of fear," she told Cheltenham police in 2005. "Before I was going to say anything to anyone, I had to put my own thoughts and feelings together. " Detailed in a police interview transcript made public Thursday , Constand's reply addressed what has emerged as a critical point as Cosby's case lumbers toward a trial.

The Waters of Eternal Youth By Donna Leon Atlantic Monthly Press. 304 pp. $26. Reviewed by Michael D. Schaffer A fter a quarter-century, Donna Leon and the readers of her Commissario Guido Brunetti mystery series have settled into a comfortable relationship, much like her fictional detective and his wife, Paola. Leon's writing satisfies, much like the dishes that come out of Paola's kitchen. It goes down easily. Her characters are reassuringly familiar and likable, if a little too good to be true.

In the last month, five people in my world have taken their own lives. I knew them to varying degrees; some very closely, others through people I am connected with via work or friendship or service. Three were male, two female. One had a child. Three were in their mid-40s, two were in their late teens or early 20s. Two were very successful in business. Through their suicides, all of them have greatly affected others and have left dozens of loved ones shattered. They struggled with depression, and, from what I have been told by family and close friends, they essentially kept how dark life had become to themselves.

Chip Kelly and Rex Ryan were geniuses at different times for the same amount of time: two years. That's how long each of them had atop that pedestal before the rest of the NFL knocked them off. If you're a head coach and want to be a genius for more than two years, you'd better have Joe Montana or Tom Brady as your quarterback. Otherwise, there will be a reckoning, and it will be humbling. Kelly's reckoning, of course, began in the final four weeks of last season, his second with the Eagles, and has continued through the first 12 weeks of this one. His up-tempo, simplified-playbook approach to offense doesn't catch opponents off guard as often as it once did, and his reliance on a rigorous sports science program has at times inspired eye rolls from at least some of his players.

To the three Camden police officers on patrol that May afternoon, the group of young people standing behind a vacant house with a .32-caliber revolver and a video camera looked suspicious. Ta'Quan Allen, 19, and his three friends say the weapon - which Allen said had been passed down through his family for protection - was being used as a prop for a film he was recording. The friends were rehearsing a scene when the officers approached. The encounter could have been dangerous, police said.

It is something no teachers or school administrators ever want to experience, but a reality that they must be prepared to confront: the death of a student. And while most student deaths are from accidents or illness, in a recent federal study suicide was found to be the No. 3 cause of death among those 10 to 14 years old. Schools all over the nation have been searching for ways to prevent it. In an incident that gained international attention, last week the prestigious Shipley School, in the heart of the Main Line, was forced to come to grips with tragedy when the body of eighth grader Cayman Naib was found on the grounds of his Newtown Square home, dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
