Nearly eight minutes into last night's Prime Events Tipoff Tournament clash featuring two of South Jersey girls' basketball's finest, the fans filling the stands at the Ventnor Education and Community Complex had to wonder when the stars would show up. Tammy Meyers, the brilliant 5-foot-10 senior leader for third-ranked Willingboro, and Jordan Sykes, the gutty 5-9 junior swing guard for ninth-ranked Holy Spirit, had gone nose-to-nose with absolutely...

They've been going against each other for four years, and now the Devon Fowler-Rasual Butler confrontations are being called classics. St. John Neumann's Fowler and Roman Catholic's Butler dueled evenly last night as Neumann got the better of the Cahillites, 55-54, in a Catholic League Southern Division boys' basketball game. "It's probably the best individual matchup in the Catholic League in a long time," Neumann coach Tom Dougherty said. "I compare it to the old Big Five days, when [La Salle's]

The Haverford Fords had been one of the upstarts in Delaware County this season. If they needed any indication of the difference between getting there and being there, it came on the first two plays last night against defending Central League champion Springfield. Haverford booted the opening kickoff, and while Erick Cotter tried to fall on it, he got drilled by Gary Peabody. The ball popped loose, and Rich Ross fell on it. With the ensuing snap, Springfield senior quarterback Brian Stumpf dropped out of a play-action fake and lofted a 23-yard touchdown pass to senior wide receiver Mike Blunt.

The fancy sunglasses would have to come off, snarled the kid who was pointing a toy gun as though it was real. But the teen sporting the $200 designer shades wouldn't hand them over. Not without a fight. So fighting is what it came to yesterday morning at Point Breeze Avenue and McClellan Street in South Philadelphia. Actually, police said, it was a duel. While the teen who wanted to steal the glasses had a toy gun, the boy who wore the glasses had a real gun. The toy gun wielder, Kareem Dandy, 16, of Ringgold Street near Morris, lost his life.

  Crashers with bats ruin pitchers' dignified affair Two outs into the bottom of the seventh, it was a scoreless pitchers' duel. Then the dam broke in a spectacular way. You can blame Mariners second baseman Chone Figgins for jump-starting the Indians' offense in Cleveland on Sunday with an error. He booted a two-hopper and threw wide of first to allow Luis Valbuena to reach base at Progressive Field. The highlight of Cleveland's seven-run burst that inning was a grand slam by designated hitter Travis Hafner the day he returned from the disabled list.

As much as he's enjoying the present, Joey Powell can't help but worry about the future. While it's wonderful that Julia Masterman High now owns the Public League/District 12 Class A baseball championship, and soon will participate in the regular Pub playoffs as well as the PIAA state tournament, Powell knows the long-range stop could be oblivion. Masterman's varsity has just 12 players. There's no JV, and no freshmen (of only 42 boys in that class) were inclined to even try out. "Getting kids to come out for the team; that's definitely going to be one of my jobs," said Powell, a 5-10, 155-pound sophomore shortstop.

  DORAL, Fla. - Bubba Watson and Justin Rose put on an amazing show of birdies in blustery conditions, making 17 between them while playing in the same group on Friday at the Cadillac Championship. Their duel was decided by Watson's eagle, giving him a 10-under 62 and a 1-shot lead. Watson belted a 3-iron that barely got over a palm tree, carried over the water into the wind, and settled six feet away on the par-5 eighth for an eagle putt that gave him a 1-shot lead over Rose.

The anticipated duel between Phillies prospect Phillippe Aumont and former prospect Kyle Drabek never materialized Wednesday as neither righthander made it out of the sixth inning. Mike Spidale's bases-loaded, two-out double in the sixth broke a 3-3 tie, and in the end Reading gained a 7-3 win over New Hampshire in the Eastern League. The leftfielder had four RBIs in the game. Aumont, who came to the Phillies in the trade that sent Cliff Lee to Seattle, gave up six hits and three earned runs in 5 2/3 innings, walking four and striking out two. He did not figure in the decision.

In the haze surrounding former Philadelphia Police Sgt. Brandon Ruff's firing, there are three events on which all parties can agree. Ruff, while off duty, walked into 35th District headquarters in Ogontz on Aug. 3 and dropped a bag of guns on the counter. He was detained moments later. And within six months, he had lost his job. Everything else that happened between those moments remains up for debate - as was made clear Monday in a civil trial before a federal jury. Ruff, an eight-year police veteran, whose last posting was in Powelton's 16th District, is suing the department and six officers involved in a scuffle that day. He says they assaulted and falsely arrested him when he attempted to anonymously turn in three guns that he had confiscated under a no-questions-asked gun buyback program.

"I suppose you're the enemy," John C. Bogle, founder of Malvern-based Vanguard Group and that rare creature, an investment celebrity, told the crowd of bargain-hunting stock-pickers in an ornate ballroom in New York's Plaza Hotel. Bogle was onstage for a "Great Debate" vs. his host, Jim Grant, Federal Reserve-bashing, gold-loving publisher of Grant's Interest Rate Observer , a contrarian investors' bible. The two squared off over Bogle's once-radical, now-mainstream proposition that even professional securities pickers can't beat market indexes like Standard & Poor's list of the 500 major U.S. stocks.

WASHINGTON - Claude Giroux galloped through the neutral zone and dragged the puck through two outstretched defenders, finally breaking free just above the top of the circles. He unleashed a snap shot, not unlike one that has found the twine 133 other times in his career, but it was quickly gobbled up and swallowed by Braden Holtby. Giroux could do little more than shake his head and exhale, as he slid up the boards and back to the bench in disbelief. "I was coming in pretty fast," Giroux said, sighing.

On the day in September that Mayor Nutter announced recommended changes to the Department of Licenses and Inspections, City Council President Darrell L. Clarke presented a plan to create a Department of Planning and Development that would have oversight of L&I among other departments and boards. Three months later, the competing visions for L&I are moving at drastically different paces. Yet both are causing anxiety to developers and others in the building industry. They especially want to put the brakes on Clarke's plan.

It is the beach town that roared. Or at least filed suit. And on Thursday, Gov. Christie's grand plan to build one continuous dune along the entire coast of New Jersey will be challenged in U.S. District Court by the City of Margate, whose voters have stubbornly opposed the dune in two referendums. Last month, Margate's lawyers, including former U.S. Rep. Robert E. Andrews, made good on their threats and sued the state Department of Environmental Protection and the Army Corps of Engineers to try to stop the awarding of a contract for construction on its beaches, which they said was imminent.

  B RYAN CRANSTON thinks Brian Cranston spells his name wrong. Bryan with a "Y" played Walter White in the critically adored "Breaking Bad," the AMC drama about a high-school chemistry teacher who turns to cooking meth after he's diagnosed with cancer. Tonight, Bryan will vie for his fourth Emmy award as a lead actor, the final time he'll be able to win as White since the show wrapped up last year. He's not actually a chemistry teacher, he just played one on TV. Brian with an "I" is actually a high-school chemistry teacher, molding young minds at Lenape High School, in Medford, N.J. Andrew Ortner , a "Breaking Bad" producer, caught wind of the Medford Cranston and sent him a signed picture of the cast along with a script with a personal note from the more famous Cranston that read, "Brian, Let's make a deal, I'll stay out of the chemistry class and you stay out of the drug making business, Deal?

Standing in the roiling thick of Wednesday's pro-Israel rally in Center City, Nancy Manno held a sign she thought said it all. Hand-drawn, it depicted a missile about to strike the Liberty Bell. "Most Americans don't put themselves in the shoes of most Israelis," said the Linwood, N.J., resident. "There's not one American who would tolerate the [Hamas] missiles that Israel has had to endure. " Another poster said it writ small: "More hummus, less Hamas. " Two weeks into the latest surge of Palestinian missile fire on Israel, and Israel's bombardment and military invasion of the Gaza Strip, more than 650 Palestinians and almost three dozen Israelis are dead.

Year after year, the Penn Relays and the Drake Relays are conducted on the same late April weekend, one in a huge Eastern metropolis, the other in a relatively quiet Midwestern burg, two cities about 1,000 miles apart. Track aficionados annually check out the results from both Penn and Drake to compare times and to check which meet has the most star athletes. Many like to think that the two meets compete for teams, athletes, and attention. However, if you listen to the directors of the two meets, they only want to see track and field thrive.

CLIFF LEE likes to work quickly, so he made sure the conversation he had with Ryne Sandberg in the bottom of the eighth inning was a brief one. "How do you feel?" "I feel good. " And so Lee went back out for his ninth and final inning, despite having thrown 114 pitches in the eight innings that preceded it. Lee would allow back-to-back hits to begin the ninth, but he battled back and kept the two baserunners stranded. Sixteen days removed from one of the worst starts of his big-league career - a game that ended with him getting an improbable win on Opening Day - Lee saw those pesky baseball gods make things right with him. Last night in South Philly, Lee struck out 13 and walked one. He threw a career-high 128 pitches.
