A top federal safety official called yesterday for tougher government regulations to crack down on the abuse of alcohol and drugs in the railroad, aviation and trucking industries.

Goldman, National Transportation Safety Board vice chairman, told the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee. Goldman said that no level of alcohol or other impairing drugs could be considered safe when running a railroad, flying a plane or driving a truck.

Rain, frustrating rain. You can't salt it and you sure can't plow it. And when it falls as hard and as heavy as it did yesterday, converting highway lowlands into unnavigable, white-capped lakes, rain confounds the best efforts of road maintenance crews. The same workers who can plow, salt and sand their way out of the most severe winter storm found themselves reduced yesterday to simply setting up wooden barricades and those fluorescent orange, traffic-stopping barrels. "We didn't even bother with the signs saying 'Roadway May Be Flooded,' " said Oliver Kee, South Jersey's regional maintenance engineer for the New Jersey Department of Transportation.

To make sure the New Year gets off to a clean start in the city, the Philadelphia Streets Department will collect trash today, after all. Yesterday, Streets Department officials reversed an earlier decision and announced that more than 100 city trash trucks were scheduled to fan out across the city this morning beginning at 7. Trash will be collected tomorrow and Sunday, as well. Clarena Tolson, deputy commissioner, said crews had fallen behind because of the heavy accumulation of holiday trash and Monday's ice storm.

All Tiffany Crews could do was cry. Never mind the agonizing pain she felt from twisting her left ankle moments earlier. The thing that hurt the most was the heartbreaking reality that her Willingboro girls' basketball career would be over in 1 minute, 26 seconds. So with her mother, Janice Williamson, at her side, Crews sat on the bench late in the game as tears poured from her eyes. And the tears didn't stop after University defeated Willingboro, 71-58, in last night's Tournament of Champions game at the Ritacco Center.

NFL officials will be graded as teams this season instead of as individuals. The league's director of officiating, Mike Pereira, said part of the reason for the new system is that this year, entire crews will continue to work together in the playoffs. Previously, the league created new crews of officials who had graded highest at their positions. "Officiating crews shouldn't be getting to know each other at the NFC championship game," Pereira said. The move comes after a postseason that was marked by disputed calls, including one that denied the New York Giants a second chance at a game-winning field goal against the San Francisco 49ers.

DENVER - Extra crews arrived Saturday at a wildfire in northern Colorado that has scorched about 85 square miles and destroyed at least 181 homes, the most in state history. The High Park fire burning 15 miles west of Fort Collins surpasses the Fourmile Canyon wildfire, which destroyed 169 homes west of Boulder in September 2010. Fire information officer Brett Haberstick said Saturday that more than 1,500 personnel were working on the Fort Collins-area fire, which was started by lightning.

What would it take for Neil Young to not be great? For his show Thursday night at the Susquehanna Bank Center, the 69-year-old rock legend stacked the odds against himself. His new album, The Monsanto Years , is an unrelenting salvo against factory farming, genetically modified organisms, and corporate greed, one of those full-length rants the cranky Canadian can get away with without completely alienating his fan base, because - well, because he's Neil Young. Even loyalists in Young's aging fan base are justifiably skeptical: Will he come out and play the mediocre-at-best new album in its entirety, punctuated by angry diatribes?

If waking up at 3:45 in the morning, jumping in a boat by 4:45 and arriving at school for a full day of classes by 7:30 sounds crazy - well, then you probably aren't a rower. "Everybody always makes fun of us about it," Bonner-Prendergast senior co-captain Anna Savage said. "My sister usually has to wake me up, and I may have fallen asleep in first period once or twice, but once you get into the routine, it becomes second nature. " That's especially true for a crew of Bonner-Prendergast girls who were fearless enough to take a dip into the unknown and row their way to a national crown in the varsity four plus coxswain at the Scholastic Rowing Association of America (SRAA)

THE RIGHT crew chief at the right time. That's the Tony Gibson-Kurt Busch pairing. Although he's only 50, Gibson is one of the few remaining old-school crew chiefs in NASCAR. He has been crew chief for Danica Patrick, Ryan Newman, Mark Martin, Michael Waltrip and Bill Elliott. Gibson's NASCAR career goes all the way back to 1992 when he was car chief and mechanic for the late Alan Kulwicki, the '92 Cup series champion. With three races remaining last season, Gibson moved from Patrick's team to Busch's.

One afternoon in February, Troy Fields and about 10 other guys from Seventh Street took seats in the gymnasium of the Police Athletic League center on Snyder Avenue - for them and so many who grew up around here, a safe haven from the violence and the shootings that mar this South Philadelphia neighborhood. Lauren Baraldi, chief of the District Attorney's Office Gun Violence Task Force, and others from the antigang initiative Focused Deterrence were waiting for them. They had an offer, Baraldi said.

Thursday's snowstorm had nothing on Philadelphia's Streets Department, which used everything from mini-bulldozers to trash compactors and the city's supersecret "snow farm" to keep roads passable. By noon Friday, Streets Commissioner David Perri reported, all 665 miles of the city's primary routes - which include 110 miles of snow emergency routes - were plowed to blacktop. The same could be said for the 700 miles of secondary streets, although there was still a fair amount of snow left just off the travel lanes, he said.

SEPTA managers and Regional Rail workers differed sharply Tuesday on the possible safety effects if SEPTA is permitted to avoid requirements of a federal rule designed to limit fatigue. SEPTA wants the Federal Railroad Administration to renew a waiver that the transit agency has had from the work rule for two years. At an FRA public hearing in Delaware County on Tuesday, engineers and conductors argued that a waiver would endanger passengers by forcing train crews to work with too little rest.

SOMERS POINT, N.J. - Their homecoming has been long awaited. Every time the remains of Navy Master Commandant Richard Somers and the crew of the USS Intrepid get the attention of leaders in Washington, world events intervene. More than 200 years ago, the seamen sailed their explosives-laden vessel into Libya's Tripoli harbor to strike a blow against a pirate fleet and died when the ship blew up. They were the first identified Americans killed in combat to be buried abroad, and their return was strongly sought by the Somers family - to no avail.

Lo Spiedo opening Monday As you drive through the iron gates of the Navy Yard in South Philadelphia, look to your left at the gatehouse. On Monday, the Vetri crew - Marc Vetri, Jeff Benjamin, Brad Spence, and Jeff Michaud - plans to open Lo Spiedo (4501 S. Broad St., 215-282-3184). "Lo spee-YAY-doh" translates to "the spit," as in rotisserie, and just about the entire menu - executed by Osteria alum Scott Calhoun - is prepared over wood-burning flame: pork ribs, pork shoulder, half-chicken, brisket, octopus.

FULL DISCLOSURE: I spend a lot of time watching "Greatest Tank Battles" on AHC. No more than 10 hours a week, though. No wait, more like 15. OK, 20. And I can quit anytime I want. Maybe next week. This week I have "Fury," the (literally) eye-popping World War II movie about a tank crew on a suicide mission. It's written and directed by David Ayer, who's apparently a bit of a wild man - he encourages his cast to do a little light sparring before work. That's how he ended up smashing Jon Bernthal's nose while shooting "Fury," prompting producers to issue the "Anchorman" like caveat - no touching of the face or hair - when star Brad Pitt came on set. He's known for the high energy, honest pulp of "Training Day" and "Street Kings," so you wonder what he'd bring to the modern war movie, territory mined so well by Spielberg ("Saving Private Ryan")
