RE JULY 24 cover story ("Between a Rock and a Hard Place") and accompanying photo (by the way, the headline is a riot) about Kobe giving his beauteous wife, Vanessa, an 8-carat purple diamond, one of the world's rarest jewels, worth $4 million: Who really cares, with all the poor starving children in Africa, AIDS scouring the earth, even in this country, but especially Africa, you'd think we'd all be disgusted with such an extravagant, ostentatious display...

Discount diamond dealer Ron Perlstein was placed on four years' probation today and ordered to work out a "fair and equitable, straightforward" settlement with more than 600 customers he swindled. Municipal Judge J. Earl Simmons announced his decision after Perlstein, 34, pleaded "nolo contendere" (no contest) to 613 counts of deceptive business practices. Before Perlstein entered his plea, which is equivalent to pleading guilty, Simmons dismissed felony charges of theft, tampering with records and securing documents by deception.

Tough-talking gangsters, dangerous gunplay and frenetic camera work highlight "Snatch" (VHS: priced for rental; DVD: $27.99), Guy Ritchie's follow-up to his indie hit "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. " Similar in tone but with a bigger cast and larger palette, "Snatch" follows a fight-fixing ring and a bag of pilfered diamonds from one hoodlum to another. Our narrator is the likable thug Turkish (Ritchie regular Jason Statham), who recruits a mush-mouthed Gypsy boxer (played hilariously by Brad Pitt)

THE STIRRING, philosophically minded Swedish drama "Simon and the Oaks" covers 13 years, during which the title character grows from a boy, played by Jonatan S. Wachter, to a man, played by Bill Skarsgard. In the process, young Simon Larsson weathers some pretty profound storms, puberty not included. (The film jumps forward in time at one point, leaving out a substantial chunk of Simon's adolescence.) That World War II is one of those storms is mitigated by the fact that Simon is a Swede, living in a country that managed to maintain its neutrality, while neighboring Norway and Denmark were occupied by the Nazis.

With the addition of righthander Scott Mathieson to the active roster, the Phillies now boast two Canadians (infielder Pete Orr is the other.) Only the Minnesota Twins (Justin Morneau, Rene Tosoni) and the Seattle Mariners (Erik Bedard, Michael Saunders) can say the same. The all-time leader in games played by a Canadian is 1,988 by Larry Walker. He's the hits and home runs leader, too. But Ferguson Jenkins is the only Canadian-born player in the Hall of Fame. He, of course, began his career with the Phillies in 1965.

A New York diamond merchant was robbed of more than $400,000 worth of gems and was severely beaten yesterday in a bold, daytime robbery in a Center City office building. Mark Indenbaum, 67, was on his way to show diamonds to a potential customer inside the Washington Square Building on 7th Street near Chestnut about 8:15 a.m., police said. There are several retail jewelers in the building. As Indenbaum was getting off the elevator at the fifth floor, police said, he was approached by a husky white man of about 30 who beat him back into the elevator with a blunt instrument.

Detectives Arthur Root and Ken McCann always use the diamond to crack their cases. It works like a gem, but this diamond doesn't sparkle - it deduces. "Most missing-person cases are diamonds," Root said, turning a square napkin diagonally to illustrate his model. He pointed to the top corner of the diamond. "You start with a phone call from the client here, and then you simply build up a data base, until you get out to these points," Root said, moving his finger to the center of the napkin.

Jesse Barbera is not a pitcher. He's an athlete who can pitch. That might seem like semantics, but it was enough of a distinction to convince Eastern coach Rob Christ to give the baseball to Barbera for the Vikings' biggest game of the season. "I coach by my gut a lot," Christ said after Barbera worked a complete game, allowing just five hits with one walk in Eastern's 6-1 victory over Gloucester Catholic in the title game of the 43rd annual Joe Hartmann Diamond Classic on Sunday night.

On Saturday, Gloucester Catholic advanced to the semifinal of the Joe Hartmann Diamond Classic with a 2-1 win over St. Augustine in a crisply played game at Deptford between two of South Jersey's top teams.

It's a season of cold shoulders, one-shoulders, and off-the-shoulders. All this clavicle-baring has made a particular accessory shine. The trendlet The statement earring. Victorian-era diamond drops, flapper-era faux stones, and geometric shapes from the 1930s are dangling from many a stylish earlobe this spring. Where does it come from? Ancient peoples believed earrings kept away evil spirits. Eventually, colossal-size earrings became symbols of importance, especially in Africa and throughout the East.

For Joe Marino, the best thing about last Saturday's Diamond Classic opening game was the result: St. Joseph 9, Mainland 7. "That was unbelievable," Marino said. "I couldn't believe we did it. " But a close second was the Wildcats' method of victory: building a big lead, losing it, answering back and holding off still another rally by the heavily-favored Mustangs. "It shows we don't give up," Marino said. "We'll keep fighting. " Marino, a junior lefthander, is a good example of the Wildcats' spirit, according to coach Tom Carney.

One batter after Kris Morgenweck was on the ground, being tended to by a trainer, Jack Parkinson was airborne. The St. Augustine shortstop took a page out Ozzie Smith's book, launching himself upward for an acrobatic catch. Morgenweck smiled. Battling through a nagging ankle injury, he said, is easier when your teammates have your back. "That's what keeps you in games," Morgenweck said after tossing a three-hit shutout - a 5-0 win over Camden Catholic - in the opening round of the Joe Hartmann Diamond Classic Saturday at Maple Shade.

Before every game, Clearview baseball players stand and clap and cheer in a circle outside the dugout while veteran coach Rocco Cornacchia drops and does 20. And then 30 more. "I try for 50," Cornacchia said of the push-ups that have become as much a part of the Pioneers' pregame routine as infield-outside practice. "I don't know if you would call them 'good' push-ups. " Clearview senior Ryan Lauk said the coach's unusual antics are symbolic of an upstart team that's playing with great confidence and chemistry entering the crucial part of the season.

"A lot of us go back to when we were 8 or 9," said Wakeley, a senior righthander. Those Eagles will be together for another month, tops.

For the first time in three years, West Deptford has qualified for the Joe Hartmann Diamond Classic, the most prestigious in-season tournament in South Jersey baseball.
