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.

STAN HOCHMAN was a people person. Wrote about them. Cared about them. So it's not surprising the Brooklyn native ended up at the People Paper. Hochman's storied career at the  Daily News  began when he was hired to cover the Phillies on June 9, 1959. Over the next 55 years, he chronicled the town's most memorable sports events and athletes, including the collapse of the 1964 Phillies, Joe Frazier's loss in the "Thrilla in Manila," Villanova's NCAA title run, and the Sixers', Flyers' and Phillies' championships.

TONY CARR is as cool as they come. There isn't much flash or panache to the Roman Catholic junior, but if you need an important basket, rebound or pass, chances are you won't find safer hands.

A MAN who was on death row for years may now be at death's door. Mumia Abu-Jamal, the convicted killer of Philadelphia Police Officer Daniel Faulkner, was taken to Schuylkill Medical Center in Pottsville early yesterday, according to Noelle Hanrahan, a spokeswoman for Prison Radio, an online media outlet that works with Abu-Jamal. Hanrahan told the Daily News from the hospital - not far from the State Correctional Institution at Mahanoy, where Abu-Jamal was incarcerated - that none of Abu-Jamal's family, including his brother, Keith Cook, were allowed into the intensive-care unit to see him. The hospital's staff also refused to disclose any information about his condition, citing a mandate from the state Department of Corrections, according to Hanrahan.

WILLIAM Scott Vare was a vote-stealer and a boodler. It seemed unlikely that his bid for a U.S. Senate seat would win the endorsement of any of Philadelphia's five daily newspapers. So he started his own. The International News Service announced its March 31, 1925, birth this way: "The first edition of the ' Philadelphia Daily News ,' a pictorial tabloid paper, made its appearance on the streets here at noon. A forty page paper was the initial offering of the Philadelphia Tabloid Publishing Company, publishers of the paper.

DOES CHARLES Ramsey want to be Philadelphia's police commissioner for life? In all likelihood, if he values his sanity, the answer is no. But there appears to be a chance that Ramsey might not exit stage left along with Mayor Nutter next January. Most of the city's six Democratic mayoral candidates have expressed an interest - publicly, anyway - in having Ramsey continue to run the Philadelphia Police Department. Perceived front-runners Lynne Abraham, Jim Kenney and Anthony Hardy Williams said the decision would be Ramsey's to make.

IF YOU WANTED to see a face light up with a happy smile, all you had to do was say the words "Lou Voci' to anyone who had known the man even slightly.
