Don't let the 5-foot-2, 100-pound package fool you. Rue Landau knows how to throw her weight around.

Eight of nine appointed commissioners will be replaced this week by Landau's handpicked candidates, confirms Douglas Oliver, Mayor Nutter's chief spokesman.

FC Delco Under-19 Dynamo won its second straight match in convincing style yesterday to earn a spot in the boys' under-19 title match at the U.S. Youth Soccer national championships. Phil Swenda scored a first-half goal and Chris Bertsch added another in the second half as Dynamo defeated FC Jackson of Mississippi, 2-0, in the four-team, round-robin tournament in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. Essentially the same Dynamo team captured the title two years ago in the under-17 division.

It took less than 5 minutes for the Union to get off to the perfect start. Sheanon Williams directs one of his trademark long throw-ins - which are now met with the clamorous cascade of "BOOM" from the Union faithful - at the 18-yard-box from just below midfield. The toss finds Sebastien Le Toux in the box directly in front of goal. A quick touch to turn himself, Le Toux gets off a shot. His blast smacks the crossbar but lands at the feet of teammate Danny Califf. Instinctively, the stalwart defender slots the ball toward the far post away from the goalkeeper, who can only helplessly watch the white sphere get enveloped in orange netting.

The Union expressed optimism that forward-midfielder Veljko Paunovic, who has been sidelined with a hamstring injury, will be ready for Thursday's second leg of the two-game aggregate goal Major League Soccer Eastern Conference semifinal series at Houston against the Dynamo. The Union remained typically tight-lipped about revealing their lineup for a game in which they will start with a one-goal disadvantage, having lost the first leg of the series, 2-1, on Sunday. The team with the most total goals in the two-game series after regulation will advance.

Sara "Sally" Berlin, 97, of Center City, a tiny public relations dynamo who pushed to expand and strengthen the Police Athletic League of Philadelphia, died Saturday, Oct. 25, at her home. Born Sara Shaltz, Mrs. Berlin renamed herself Sally. She stood only 4 feet, 10 inches tall, but what she lacked in height she more than made up for with energy and drive, her family said. "Someone called her the ageless dynamo, and she loved that," said son Andy. Mrs. Berlin was credited with encouraging the PAL to expand its reach so it could help more young people.

She has been described as a "force of nature," a "serial entrepreneur," a "doyenne. " But former Gov. Ed Rendell offered perhaps the most unvarnished - and true - assessment of Marciene Mattleman, a towering force for good honored at City Hall on Wednesday for her decades of accomplishments. "The secret to Marciene's success," Rendell said, "is that she's impossible. " That is: She has made a career of lifting up the city's most vulnerable - children, people who cannot read - often by sheer force of will.

The things that drive Kiara Lynn Garcia are dark: her father deported, an uncle shot dead, money worries that color things at home. But Kiara's presence is all light: a sunny smile that warms her whole face, a bubbling curiosity and love of learning, a bone-sure determination that her current circumstances will not dictate her future. "She's got a lot of gifts to unleash on the world," said Ann-Therese Ortiz, a mentor who has known Kiara for four years. Currently, the 12th grader at Kensington High School for Creative and Performing Arts is all in on a project she conceived and is executing largely on her own: a flea market to raise money for her classmates' senior-year expenses.

THE UNION played a scoreless tie with the Houston Dynamo on Saturday night at PPL Park. The tie kept the Union's unbeaten streak alive at five (3-0-2) and enabled the team to get one point in the standings. With New York and Columbus winning over the weekend, the Union dropped below the playoff line. The Union (9-9-11) are in sixth place in the MLS Eastern Conference, two points and one position out of the playoffs with five games to play. "We needed them," Union goalkeeper Rais Mbolhi said of points left on the field.

There was a fear the Union would be spent emotionally upon their return to Major League Soccer play after Tuesday's 3-1, extra-time loss to the visiting Seattle Sounders in the U.S. Open Cup. But it wasn't a lack of energy that hurt the Union in a scoreless tie with the Houston Dynamo on Saturday night at PPL Park in Chester. The Union didn't finish several chances, and they ended their season series with Houston at 0-1-2 without scoring a goal in 270 minutes. "The effort was there, and we created chances," said Maurice Edu, who started at midfield and moved to center back when Amobi Okugo replaced Ethan White in the 52d minute.

A security guard escorted Houston defender Kofi Sarkodie up the tunnel in PPL Park's River End. The Sons of Ben leaned over the railing and banged their palms on top of the tarp-covered walkway. It was the 82d minute of the Union's scoreless draw with the Houston Dynamo on Saturday, and the 17,301 fans in Chester smelled blood. Sarkodie had just been disqualified for his second yellow card, and the Union would finish with a man advantage for the second straight game. And for the second straight game, they could make nothing of it. The Union did not even put a shot on target in the 14 minutes they played with an extra man. They left the field to restless boos after extending their winless streak to six games.

Clinging to fourth place in the Eastern Conference, the Union entered last night's game against the Houston Dynamo winless in their last four games, having scored just one goal during that time. Another loss, and the Dynamo would pass them in the standings. Houston, in front of a sellout crowd PPL Park, shut out the Union, 1-0, to do just that. The Union, now 10-10-9, have to wait until Sept. 27 before they next play, at Sporting Kansas City. "This has been a tough stretch for us and this night is going to be really difficult to accept," Union manager John Hackworth said after the game.

Union team manager John Hackworth asked more interesting questions than he was able to give answers to when talking Wednesday about a mystifying performance in Sunday's 1-0 Major League Soccer loss at San Jose. Needing every point in an air-tight playoff race, the Union basically took the first half off. Adding to the insult, former Union midfielder Shea Salinas scored for the Earthquakes in the 15th minute and this was another case of the Union waking up too late. Pretty soon they will go into permanent hibernation if they don't snap out of it. "It was alarming," Hackworth said about the first half performance.

HOUSTON - The Union weren't able to kick the Houston Dynamo when they were down. The Dynamo came into Saturday night's match against the Union in the midst of offensive struggles of historic proportions. But Ricardo Clark's header in the 59th minute not only snapped a team-record scoreless streak of 388 minutes, it also led Houston to a 1-0 victory. "It was a tough, physical game - just a heartbreaker really," said Union forward Aaron Wheeler, who in his first-ever Major League Soccer start had two of the Union's three shots on goal.
