With my 50th birthday looming, I wanted to celebrate in an active fashion. On my desk sits a black-and-white photo of me at age 6, wearing a blue-and-white cowgirl outfit and swinging an imaginary rope. An avid horseback rider for most of my life, the cowgirl is still there. By chance, a brochure arrives in the mail, showing a cowboy rustling cows. "Rancho de la Oso is inhabited by the Great Spirit, She Bear - a mountain spirit who looks out over the people in the valley" - it sounded mystical.

Sally Starr, the gun-totin' cowgirl who rode a palomino with a silver saddle and introduced millions of children in the Philadelphia area to Popeye, Clutch Cargo, and the Three Stooges, died Sunday. One of the most beloved celebrities in Philadelphia TV history, Miss Starr was an icon of the black-and-white era. She died two days after her 90th birthday at the Berlin, Camden County, convalescent home where she lived, her former station, 6ABC, said in an online obituary. Miss Starr most recently hosted a country music show on Vineland's Cruisin' WVLT-FM (92.1)

Asma Gull Hasan describes herself as a "Muslim feminist cowgirl. " With its odd juxtaposition, the phrase reflects her cross-cultural identity as an American, a woman and a Muslim, said Hasan, author of American Muslims, the New Generation. Hasan, a Pakistani American, recently talked to students at the Baldwin School's annual Peace Day (for "People Embracing All Cultures Everywhere"). Baldwin began the tradition of presenting speakers of diverse backgrounds in 1998. The private girls' school in Bryn Mawr has 635 students, and 22 percent are minorities.

WHEN I HEARD that Sally Starr had died, I thought of my father, Phil, himself gone 14 years next month. I thought of his reaction when, in the summer of 1984, I announced that I was hoping to bring "Our Gal Sal" - who hadn't been heard from for 12 years - back to Philly as a way to publicize the RV Roundup, a recreational-vehicle exhibition scheduled for the old Civic Center that September. I was public-relations director for a Center City ad agency whose clients included the Roundup.

Sally Starr is making a comeback from the fire that engulfed her Fort Lauderdale, Fla., home in May 1987. "Out of the ashes has come a very good life," said Starr, 65, well-known for her years as a children's TV hostess. She said she had a new children's video coming out next year. On WHYY-TV (Channel 12), she will do three-minute interviews on careers in spots aimed at children. And she's trying to open a ranch to house abused children. "It's a shame to say it," she said, "but the ashes were a firm foundation that I'm building on now. " Starr made the comments during an interview at a fall bazaar Friday at the Mayfair Shopping Center, Frankford and Cottman Avenues.

THERE ARE NO TAPES or videos or faded old footage of Sally Starr's tender voice signing off, but Sue Gruber can hear it perfectly in her memories. "Love, luck and lollipops. " On Monday afternoon, Gruber finished her shift at a local Walmart and drove down the White Horse Pike to Costantino Funeral Home, in Berlin, N.J. Gruber, of Magnolia, Camden County, was the first in line for Sally Starr's public viewing and funeral, filing past pictures of Sally's retirement party and the white cowboy boots propped up beside her closed casket, to Sally's cowboy hat, where she laid a special gift.

As soul-searching singer-songwriters go, Jewel has more on the ball musically than most. At the Waterfront Entertainment Centre in Camden on Wednesday, the blonde-bombshell folk-rocker reached for keening highs and gospel-growly lows, supported herself ably on acoustic guitar on "Near You Always," and rocked-out convincingly enough on "Love Me, Just Leave Me Alone. " But the ambitions of the Alaska-raised cowgirl superstar - whose 1994 Pieces of You moved 8 million copies and whose 1998 Hearts in Armor poetry collection was a best seller - far outstrip her abilities.

When the concierge at the Marriott Mountain Resort in Vail, Colo., suggested that my daughter and I might like to join a cattle drive, I thought: Right. Don't you realize that we're from New Jersey, I thought, where folks usually drive cars or trucks but rarely cattle? However, as I was about to say we'd prefer to take horses on a trail ride, I noticed the yee-haw in my daughter's eyes, and I knew that I was doomed. She, of course, thought that cantering across the open range in the Rocky Mountains would far exceed a trail ride, during which riders calmly walk their horses nose to tail on well-worn mountain paths.

On the day that Philadelphia celebrated the nation's birth with the opening of the National Constitution Center, it also honored one of the more prominent upholders of that constitution - Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor. Although the 73-year-old trailblazer long ago achieved national prominence, when she became the first woman appointed to the highest court, she showed humility yesterday as she accepted the city's 15th annual Liberty Medal from Mayor Street before a crowd of 4,000.

In her heyday decades ago as a Philadelphia TV celebrity introducing cartoons and celebrity guests, Sally Starr tried to teach her young viewers the importance of respect and love for others. But the rough years that followed - including an on-air radio insult that she says cost her thousands of dollars in personal-appearance fees and led to her bankruptcy filing last month - left Starr wondering whether her teachings had fallen on deaf ears. No more. When Starr, 76, learned that a local musician who adored her as a child was organizing an event to raise money for her, she proudly concluded that the values she tried to impart to children in the 1950s and 1960s had not been lost.
