LOS ANGELES - "Some people say: 'Maude Apatow is my spirit animal.' I get that a lot," Maude Apatow said. "They tweet it to me. " Over a coconut milk smoothie at a trendy vegan restaurant in Los Angeles, Maude was describing the rather intense fascination she has inspired on Twitter, where she has more than 62,000 followers. That may not compare to Lady Gaga's total, but considering she is a 14-year-old just out of braces, not a celebrity and not someone who has done anything outrageous on YouTube, it's an impressive fan base.

Jim Wise thinks about Phil Bengtson. "Most people never heard of us, Phil Bengtson and me," he says, "because there is no slot in the record books for what you might call famous followers. " Phil Bengtson, you may not remember, was coach of the Green Bay Packers for three years in the late '60s and early '70s. All he had to do was follow the legendary Vince Lombardi, whose teams won league championships in each of the three years before Bengtson's takeover. Bengtson never made the playoffs during his three years as head coach.

Three former Church of Our First Love members say church leader Anthony Marcolongo has an unquenchable desire to control the lives - and minds - of his followers. The three, who spoke on condition that they not be named, say Marcolongo, who started his church in 1983, made rigorous demands on his group. Marcolongo, a 33-year-old Glenolden native, demanded that followers fast Wednesday through Friday, attend one-hour morning prayer sessions five days a week and evening prayer services three times weekly, they said.

Jingduan Yang's mother wants him to shut up. Stop talking, she tells him in her phone calls from China. Her youngest son, a Thomas Jefferson University Hospital psychiatrist, is only getting his big sister in more trouble. "She's in again and it's all because of you," Yang said his 79-year-old mother, Sun Yixia, told him. "Don't say anything. Be quiet. " But Yang refuses. The 40-year-old native of Hefei, in China's Anhui Province, wants anyone who will listen to know that his sister, Jingfang Yang, is imprisoned in China because of her belief in the spiritual meditation practice of Falun Gong.

Her devotees believe she is the Hindu goddess of knowledge: a reincarnation of Divine Mother Saraswati, consort of Brahma. But officials at Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wynnewood say Hindus have no business using their Christian campus to promote their beliefs. Yesterday, the seminary canceled tonight's scheduled lecture by Indian holy woman Sri Karunamayi, who is in her late 30s and is nearing the end of a 13-city U.S. tour that began April 5 in Dallas. "It is our understanding that this woman is representing Hinduism," said Scott Rodin, vice president for advancement at the 460-student seminary.

Last Sunday morning, Alexander Menn, one of the most beloved Russian Orthodox priests in the Soviet Union, set out on his accustomed route to church. It was 6:30 a.m. The stocky, handsome, gray-bearded priest left his wooden house, set in a grove of birch and pine, and headed for the train station of this country town. His route took him through a 300-yard stretch of forest cloaked in early morning gloom. The train would take him 15 miles to the village of Novaya Deryevnya, where he was a fabled preacher during the long years of Soviet religious oppression.

David Brandt Berg, leader of the embattled Children of God religious sect, apparently has died the way he lived: shrouded in mystery. His followers say they don't know where or exactly when he died, or under what circumstances. But spokesmen for the sect in the United States and Europe say Berg's wife notified them Tuesday - in a letter from an unknown location - that their 75-year-old leader, in hiding since the early 1970s, had died. If Berg is gone (international police authorities are expressing doubts)

Imam Warith Deen Mohammed, a national leader for African American Muslims who preaches personal responsibility and brotherhood between the races, urged his followers yesterday to practice love in the family and in government.

The event was sponsored by eight New Jersey masjids, or congregations.

Death seems to follow Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman like a distant echo - there often seems to be a connection to his words, but it's never quite clear. There was the 1981 assassination of Egyptian President Anwar el-Sadat, which reportedly came after the blind Muslim cleric issued a decree denouncing Sadat's negotiations with Israel. There was the 1990 slaying of radical Rabbi Meir Kahane in New York. There was the killing two years ago of a Muslim man in Brooklyn who had clashed with the cleric.

KHALIL ROANE was at it again for Ss. Neumann-Goretti last week. After 70 carries and 379 yards in his last two games, the 5-8, 185-pound running back put the Saints on his back again in a 12-6 victory against Prep Charter in the Class AA city title game. Jack Taylor, a senior linebacker for the Saints, actually ended the game with an interception with 47 seconds remaining. Roane, already the city's leader in attempts (now 283), supplied the offense. He logged 31 more totes for 171 yards and both N-G touchdowns.

Bob Berry's house on the banks of the Pickering Creek near Phoenixville has evolved, to say the least. Born as a 19th-century farmhouse, it got its first makeover in the 1940s when famed architect Oskar Stonerov transformed it into an International-style haven for his family, which eventually included four children, and his wife, Elizabeth, who started a popular cooperative preschool there. Then, when Bob Berry bought the structure in 2005, his brother-in-law and architect John Kohlhaus remade it to fit 21st century needs.

IT SURE seemed that Nate Allen was going to practice yesterday, during the loosening-up drills reporters were allowed to watch. But the Eagles' safety said afterward he hadn't done much, "little light movements and stuff," and the team officially listed him as not having practiced. Which brings us to Earl Wolff. (Brings us to Earl Wolff. According to Chip Kelly, if Allen can't play, the Eagles might start special-teams ace Chris Maragos Sunday at Houston, or even rookie corner Jaylen Watkins, who later classified himself as only an "emergency" safety.

AMANDA BYNES, who'd been staying out of the tabloid headlines recently, a promising signal that she was keeping her life together, was arrested in L.A. yesterday on charges of DUI. The "influence," however, was believed to be weed, according to TMZ.com. A TMZ source said she's been smoking for weeks. TMZ reported that Amanda was driving a Mercedes in the San Fernando Valley when she stopped in the middle of an intersection on Van Nuys Boulevard. For those readers who don't drive, the middle of an intersection is generally not the best place to stop.

KNOW HOW POLITICS can often be predictable? Well, that's what happened at the Two-Toms debate Monday night in Hershey. Tom Corbett and Tom Wolf followed their respective scripts. The Republican incumbent - trailing in polls and campaign cash and still regarded the No. 1 vulnerable guv in America - took some sweeping swings at his challenger. When you're behind, that's what you do. In response, the Democratic upstart pulled a Wolf-a-dope, leaning on rhetorical ropes, staying calm, happy just to lay a few jabs on the titleholder's chin.

" At 11:06 that night, the popular lobbyist was back on Twitter, posting a nighttime photo of City Hall. It wasn't until nearly a month later that cops showed up in the middle of the night at Marsico's luxury apartment in Center City and arrested him for what they believe happened between those two tweets.

The crowd came out to Parx Racing to see a star on Saturday in the 35th running of the Pennsylvania Derby, and California Chrome looked perfect for the role of a Hollywood hero as he walked regally around the paddock, accepted Victor Espinoza onto his back, and stepped onto the track to play his part. And then they ran the race. Someone messed with the script, just as they had in June at the Belmont Stakes, when Chrome wasn't able to parlay wins in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes into Triple Crown immortality.

Someday, Flyers prospect Sam Morin hopes to remind folks of his idol, Chris Pronger. That's why Morin seeks advice from the former standout defenseman whenever he gets the chance. After Saturday's opening day of rookie camp in Voorhees, Morin recalled a conversation he had with the once-menacing Pronger, who had a simple message: Play mean, but play smart. "I got into an incident this past year with my stick, and he just told me not to do it again," said Morin, a 6-foot-6, 224-pound defenseman who has gained 13 pounds in the last year.
