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.

FORMER STATE SEN. Vince Fumo went on Facebook yesterday morning and weighed in on the mayor's race. Sort of. Fumo shared a NewsWorks story about the "four billionaires" supporting state Sen. Anthony Hardy Williams and wrote that he'd choose their candidate over one backed by labor leader John Dougherty (who is throwing his money behind ex-Fumo protege and former City Councilman Jim Kenney). "Either those guys or Johnnie doc! I take anyone other than dougherty!" Fumo wrote. The four billionaires cited by NewsWorks are the pro-school-choice Susquehanna International Group trio funding Williams ads, and Gerry Lenfest - owner of the Daily News , the Inquirer and Philly.com - who has contributed money to Williams.

NOBODY HAS ever had a better time at the Penn Relays than Frank Bertucci. Officially, Bertucci wrote advance stories and oversaw a staff of young journalism students who compiled results and quotes for use by the media. Unofficially, he held court. Bertucci worked the event for more than 40 years, so if you had questions, he had the answers. Sadly, this year was his last at the track and field carnival. Bertucci, 68, died of a heart attack at his South Philadelphia home on Friday, just one week after the 121st running of the prestigious event.

INITIALLY, DESPITE the agonizing tragedy she was shouldering, Dominique Lockwood bore empathy for the driver who ended her youngest son's life. "Before, I felt bad for her, too," she told the Daily News last week. "I said, 'Oh, I can't imagine how this lady must feel.' " Abdul Latif Wilson - a bright, energetic 4-year-old whose mom said helped hold his family together - was run down April 13 by a Ford Edge after he darted into a street near his Kingsessing home from between two parked cars.

Just over a week ago, Mr. Bertucci had finished another Penn Relays, where he wrote several advance stories, including one spotlighting the common and uncommon names among the thousands of entries.

IT WAS EIGHT years ago this month that the Daily News branded 52nd and Market streets one of the city's most dangerous corners. "Death Row" screamed the front-page headline - one part tabloid hyperbole, one part depressing summation of the crime, blight and poverty that had choked the life out of the once-proud business and entertainment strip. Drug deals went down casually in broad daylight. Businesses collapsed, one after another, as a lengthy rebuild of SEPTA's Market-Frankford El turned the streets and sidewalks into a maze of construction equipment and debris.

TOM BRADLEY, who had been at Penn State forever, isn't answering any more questions about the Jerry Sandusky scandal. "I think all those questions have been answered years ago," Bradley told the Associated Press. "I'm here to help UCLA and these players be the best players they can possibly be. " The Bruins' new defensive coordinator under head coach Jim Mora still bleeds blue and white. Which you would expect from a guy who spent 32 years as an assistant to Joe Paterno. That was after playing defensive end for four seasons for the Lions.

MANY A YOUNGSTER with the sounds of newspaper presses thundering in their dreams had one great wish: They wanted to be a Sandy Grady when they grew up. Sandy could mold a sentence into a work of art, no matter the subject, from boxing to the Olympics to baseball to the political scene, all of which he graced with a fluid style that never seemed to bump. Some of his memorable words still ring like a punch in the funny bone. He once wrote of an unpopular Eagles coach: "He couldn't sell iced tea to a Tasmanian at a dried-up water hole.

"Everyone at the Phillies is saddened by the news of Stan's passing. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife Gloria, his family and his Daily News colleagues. In the early '60s, Stan and his fellow writers made the Daily News sports section a 'must read' for young readers such as myself. Over the next 45 years, it was a pleasure to get to know him on a personal level. "His writing skills and talents allowed him to cover a variety of subjects including restaurant reviews, boxing and other sports, but I believe he always had a special place in his heart for baseball.
