JOURNALISM is an art. But it parades its words as a science at times. We in the news business take printed words and give them to what we hope is an eager public wanting facts. We try to do that in an interesting way without being sensationalistic. When the news is something completely new, like the recent SARS epidemic, we give as much information as possible and as many viewpoints. I learned this from Daily News editor Zack Stalberg and former editorial page editor Richard Aregood.

Staff writer Bob Warner and the Daily News should be ashamed of themselves for the article on June 21, about Joseph F. Hoffman Jr. Hoffman, who is a son of a Democratic ward leader, threw out "more than twice as many tickets as anybody else" in a six-year period. Does the Daily News commend Hoffman on his excessive productivity? No. Does the Daily News give credit to Hoffman for saving the city at least another person's salary and benefits costs for that six-year period?

Richard Aregood, whose take-no-prisoners editorials helped define the Daily News for two decades, is leaving the paper to take a job with The Star-Ledger of Newark, N.J. Aregood's decision to leave the Daily News was prompted in part by disagreements with editor Zachary Stalberg over the mission of the editorial and opinion pages, as well as cutbacks in his department. During his years on the Daily News, Aregood won journalism's top awards for editorial writing, including the Pulitzer Prize in 1985.

The Daily News loves to fight for the little guy. Well, score one for the Daily News and two of its fearless reporters. Barbara Laker and Wendy Ruderman won the Pulitzer Prize for investigative journalism Monday for a series of stories that exposed a rogue police narcotics squad. Kudos, too, to Inquirer cartoonist Tony Auth, a Pulitzer finalist for his drawings "expressing consistently fearless positions on national and local issues. " The awards once again affirm the important role that vibrant newspapers play - even in tough times - not just here in the Cradle of Liberty, but across America.

Attorney and former mayoral candidate Charles W. Bowser has filed suit against the Daily News and Daily News associate editor Don Williamson, charging that he was the victim of false and defamatory statements in a column written by Williamson. In a suit filed in Common Pleas Court, Bowser accused Williamson of describing him as a black bigot and of making other disparaging remarks in a column about last summer's Urban Journalism Workshop for minority high school students, sponsored by the Daily News and the Dow Jones Newspaper Fund.

THE Daily News had the Phillies making the playoffs on the Monday before the season ended, and we know how that turned out. On Nov. 1, six days before the election, your headline said, "All over but the voting. " Headlines like these are more hurtful than helpful. Perhaps the third time you're inclined to predict the future, you'll bite your tongues and think how you might have blown it for us twice before. Stan Gibell Philadelphia

I remember when there were nine daily newspapers in New York City? Many Philadelphians have never forgotten the deceased Bulletin's slogan: In Philadelphia, Nearly Everybody Reads The Bulletin. Newspapers are dying. In this contemporary era, television has been the grotesque murderer of newspapers and magazines. Today, pay-for-TV-cable has been an ugly motive for not reading newspapers. Newspapers are in my blood. I read newspapers voraciously. In the past golden age of newspapers, it was cranky typewriters, inexpensive copy paper, rewritemen receiving stories from reporters over old-time telephones.

NOW THAT Philadelphia has already invested more than a half-BILLION dollars in stadia for "important" sports, the Daily News decides to take a position against the funding of a soccer-specific stadium in Chester? Why shouldn't soccer fans be able to watch their sport in an appropriate stadium? Is it that the money will be spent and earned outside the city? Or that your readers know nothing about the sport? Here's hoping the Legislature isn't listening. Peg Manning Eastsound, WA I don't think Barack Obama has much of a chance at winning the presidency because of his Muslim-sounding name.

ISSUE | MENTAL HEALTH Profile in courage Penn State junior Caroline Crasnick is a marvelous young woman to have the guts to speak openly about her bipolar disorder and a sexual assault by a male student in her freshman year ("On campus, going public with private pain," Monday). Too bad that male student and others like him do not have the courage of Crasnick and the other female students who have told their stories in campus media. The men should man up, admit their offenses, and deal with the consequences of their bullying behavior.

By Jackie Soteropoulos Incollingo With a bold and innovative plan, H.F. "Gerry" Lenfest - now the former owner of the company that runs The Inquirer, the Daily News, and Philly.com - has put Philadelphia at the forefront of exploring a new economic model for struggling metropolitan newspapers. Lenfest's decision to donate the properties to a nonprofit institute is a gift to the region's citizens, but it is an even larger gift to the future of journalism, given the critical role that news and information play in our democracy and the troubled economic times facing many media outlets.

The Inquirer, the Daily News, and Philly.com have had occasion over the past decade to try out a wide array of what are politely termed "ownership models," from publicly traded corporations to vulture capitalists to political power brokers. For all their diverse approaches and agendas, these many masters have consistently reduced the company's complement of journalists and often brought about turmoil and uncertainty. H.F. "Gerry" Lenfest's newly announced transfer of the company to a nonprofit foundation holds tremendous promise in light of this dark recent history - not only to end the endless ownership shuffle, but also to prevent further deterioration of the company's power to produce independent, responsible, robust journalism, as well as position it to keep doing so in a rapidly changing business.

WHAT MADE life interesting for Buzzy Hall was a date with a beautiful woman and chilling out in front of his flat-screen TV to watch sports. And, oh yes, he was passionate about his employment for over 40 years with the companies that owned the Daily News and Inquirer, rarely missing a day's work and rising to the position of mailroom supervisor. "He was a diligent, dedicated worker," his daughter Lisa Hall said. "He would very rarely miss a day from work. He was what one might call a workaholic.

A crowd of about 75 people turned out at the National Constitution Center this morning as the owner of The Inquirer and its sister publications signed a ceremonial document marking his donation of the news organizations to a new media institute. "What would the city be without the Inquirer and the Daily News?" asked H.F. "Gerry" Lenfest, who until his gift was the sole owner of The Inquirer, Daily News and Philly.com website. No TV, radio or internet portal can match the news agencies in-depth coverage, he said.
