ON A HOT and sweaty afternoon, when everyone would have killed for personal water fountains, Joe Kinee emerged as a hero. Quite fitting. Away from Ss. Neumann-Goretti High, Kinee, a Maine signee, is known for his multidimensional baseball skills. Ah, but in the building, he's still famous for the successful campaign he mounted last spring to become senior class president. "Lots of kids were putting up these huge signs all over school," he said. "It was like everybody was doing the same thing.

You might expect an agency supposedly on the brink of elimination to tread quietly for a while. But even amid the legislature's latest failed attempt to make them part of the history from whence they came, Pennsylvania's favorite Prohibition reenactors were still rampaging across the commonwealth, doing their best to keep a lid on the 21st Amendment. The Carrie Nation appreciation society that is the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board has trained its ax on the region's eminently likable Iron Hill chain of brew pubs.

Swiss weekly Sonntag says that the Cabinet has drafted a plan to ban restaurateurs from offering any free drinks to customers, extending a ban on other alcoholic beverages to beer. Bar owners would still be allowed to offer "spontaneous" rounds to regulars. The proposal has drawn strong opposition from the hospitality industry as free beer promotions are common in bars, restaurants and at public events in Switzerland.

I figure, if something happens once every 372 years, it's worth staying up to see. At least, that was my logic at 3:17 a.m. the night I stood at my window and peered up at the lunar eclipse. Dec. 21 was the first time a lunar eclipse occurred on the winter solstice since 1638. To take you back to eighth-grade Earth Science for a minute: The winter solstice - in December in the Northern Hemisphere, June in the Southern - is the longest night of the year, when the earth is tilted as far from the sun as possible.

L ISEL PARILLON 's taco title is only days old, but she already has her sights set on Wing Bowl. The 23-year-old graduate dentistry student at Penn hadn't heard of the annual 610 WIP celebration of gluttony (and strippers), but when we explained it to her yesterday she said she planned to try out for the contest, which hasn't had a serious female contender since pro-eater Sonya "Black Widow" Thomas won the crown in 2004. On Aug. 20, Trinidad-born Parillon and friends were heading into Drinker's West (39th & Chestnut)

This incident should be cause for alarm, but state regulators and casino operators may instead respond by offering services to cater to addicted gamblers with children. In the interest of making gaming, ah, safer for kids, here are a few suggestions. How about a tot lot with toy slot machines for the little rollers, while dad gambles away the rent money?
