These days, John Heermann is a welcome visitor, finishing here after delivering heating oil to a home on Fayette Street in Conshohocken. The cold has reminded many homeowners to keep the tanks full, and it should continue in full force through at least tonight.

The Paris Opera Ballet may not always be joli, but it can't be beat for la gloire. The oldest dance company in the world has descended on the Metropolitan Opera in full sail, bringing more than 100 of its 150 dancers, 90 students from its school (founded in 1661 by Louis XIV) and a repertory that places the company as emphatically in the present as in its illustrious past. The troupe's three-week New York season, which will end July 9, came to a climax Monday when some 250 people joined in a unique French processional called the grand defile.

WELL, WELL, well - I see my fan club is out in full force (letters Sept. 29). Why am I not surprised to see Joseph A. Tursi and his usual right-wing babble? It's so pathetic that Joey just refuses to answer the questions posed in my letter. And, Joe, just a quick note re the 2000 presidential farce: MANY people will never forget being screwed over by your hero Dumbya. The outdated idea of the Electoral College can't hold a candle to the popular vote. It's high time to 86 the Electoral College.

In 2001, years before Amy Winehouse and Duffy marched out their versions of blue-eyed soul, Nikka Costa did it harder, louder and with the spirit of psychedelic funk masters from Sly Stone to Teena Marie. No stranger to the limelight, the daughter of the late arranger Don Costa had a long and successful singing career doing grand pop ballads in Europe. But when Costa found the funk, she found it fast and made it freaky. Everybody Got Their Something (2001) and can'tneverdidnothin' (2005)

THE FANS OF Philadelphia are legendary for being hostile, rude, aggressive - you know the story. In Altell Stadium, they ran comparisons to New England and one of them was NE: BOO YANKEES / PHILLY: BOO SANTA CLAUS. Well, your fans were in full force Sunday at the stadium, booing the Patriot players, coaches and even cheerleaders every chance they got. They turned the Super Bowl into a home game atmosphere. The "E-A-G-L-E-S" chants were non-stop. The "Fly Eagles Fly" song loud and clear.

Eric Lindros was ejected for boarding and Pavel Bure had two goals and an assist in his season debut as the New York Rangers beat visiting Toronto, 5-4, last night. In the second period, the Maple Leafs' Wade Belak carried the puck behind his own net while chased by Lindros, and began to lose his footing. As Belak fell, Lindros also started to go to the ice. He fell against Belak and knocked his head into the boards. Belak received several stitches and did not return. "Wade went into the boards and fell, and even talking to him when we were coming off the ice he made note of that," Lindros said.

Mothers are a special breed in all species. When we think of mothers, we tend to think of humans. But there is a special instinct in every mother for her young. There is a love and protection that cannot be explained. I find it most interesting how an animal will protect its young, even if it means death. Recently I had a mother-to-mother experience, the other mother being a wild rabbit. She had a litter of bunnies that she would watch each morning and night. My daughter spotted a hawk in the yard, sitting in the grass.

First, there's her name. Always, the name. Whoopi Goldberg, nominated yesterday for an Academy Award as Best Actress, refuses to give her real name. She's trying to protect her privacy, she says, but a small amount of mystery has never hurt a career. Born (approximately) 35 years ago in Manhattan, Goldberg says she's half- Catholic and half-Jewish. Her mother, Emma Johnson, is a Project Head Start teacher. Goldberg doesn't talk about her father. She adopted Whoopi Goldberg as her name a few years ago after giving Whoopi Kushon a short trial in San Diego, she says with a dazzling smile.

In one of the more significant Philadelphia Orchestra debuts since Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Tugan Sokhiev led fresh-minted performances in what could have felt like the ultimate rerun: Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto (which began the current season) and the Mussorgsky/Ravel Pictures From an Exhibition Thursday at the Kimmel Center. The Tchaikovsky performance was safer, more conventional, and less consistently charismatic than Anne-Sophie Mutter's, which opened the current season.

  A big lift is on the agenda for Penn State's football team, and strength and conditioning coach Craig Fitzgerald wants to make sure players are ready. So what does he do? Fitzgerald, a 40-year-old father of three, stands still. He waits as, one by one, the players charge at him with full force - headfirst. "These are guys in their prime, their necks are pretty strong," said Fitzgerald, a La Salle High School graduate. "Is it crazy to let them head-butt me? Yeah, probably.

NEW YORK - NHL arenas are dark, and now so are its negotiating rooms. Hockey's opening day came and went Thursday with no games and no reason to think players will be hitting the ice anytime soon. The league and the union were back at the bargaining table, hours before pucks were supposed to drop to open the regular season, but once again the sides didn't address the core economic differences at the center of the league's lockout that already has lasted 26 days. After discussing secondary topics for a second straight day, no plans were made to meet again.

It was the type of splitter too good not to be a passed ball. It was a swinging third strike with two outs, as the bottom dropped out of a baseball that zipped through the five-hole of Bishop Eustace catcher Sam Steele. The batter reached base safely, and the inning was extended. On the next pitch, Paul VI's Brian Almand crushed a belt-high fastball over the center-field fence, halting Keith Wallace's no-hit bid in the sixth inning. "His stuff moves a lot, and I just couldn't get to it," Steele said of the passed ball after his eighth-seeded Crusaders cruised to a 7-3 win over ninth-seeded Paul VI on Friday in the first round of the Non-Public South A tournament.

MANCHESTER, England - In a city that's more used to a sea of red during title celebrations, it was blue confetti that fell over the streets of Manchester on Monday. About 100,000 fans packed the streets as Manchester City paraded the Premier League trophy through the city to celebrate its first English title in 44 years. Blue and white ticker-tape and streamers rained down on the team bus as City players showed off the trophy they had wrestled away from crosstown rival Manchester United in nailbiting fashion a day earlier.

The team was battling injuries to numerous starters. And all three losses were to quality teams. But 0-3 is 0-3. It stings. The Lenape boys' lacrosse team felt it. It's a feeling the Indians cite as a big reason they have won five straight, after Wednesday's 12-1 win over Absegami. Two of those wins were against key rivals. "It was rough for us in the beginning. Nobody wants to lose the first three games of the season," said senior attack James O'Donnell, a Widener recruit.

Taylor Donahue and Laura Lesky remember calling each other almost every afternoon when they were little. "Do you want to have a catch?" one of them inevitably would ask. The two Seneca girls' lacrosse players grew up right down the street from each other in Shamong. And the dream of playing Division I lacrosse was there even during those countless days spent playing catch in the back yard. The lifelong dream soon will be reality. The two seniors have played on the same team since starting organized lacrosse in middle school, including on the club team South Jersey Select.
