The business of port development deserves top priority this week. The bi-state Delaware River Port Authority must stop its political bickering and formally request legislative approval in New Jersey and Pennsylvania to construct a modern rail yard, a trade center and various port facilities. In Pennsylvania, the Senate Republican leadership should realize that it has won a major compromise in a bill that would create an 11-member, state-run port authority for the Philadelphia region.

DUE TO last-minute negotiations, we don't know exactly what will be in the health-care bills that the Senate and House will vote on in September. But we do know what won't be in them: No "government takeover" of health care - you'll still be able to buy private insurance. No government between you and your doctor. No reduction of Medicare benefits. And, most especially, no government workers euthanizing senior citizens. Opponents have few legitimate arguments against the basics of health-care reform: reducing premiums, requiring insurers to cover those with pre-existing conditions and providing low-income families with subsidies for insurance.

The new hands managing the helm of Ocean One - Atlantic City's ship-shaped mall-on-a-pier - have set the project on a new course. It's full steam ahead into Trendy-land, with plans for a new smokestack with real steam pouring out, lots of pastel "Miami Vice" colors, an interior tropical wonderland, and a slick design concept with lots of pre-packaged fun built in. The meat and potatoes behind the eateries like Little Miss Muffin is a...

Whitewater special prosecutor Kenneth W. Starr yesterday bowed to criticism and reversed his decision to quit, promising to go "full steam ahead" investigating allegations of wrongdoing by President Clinton, his wife and others. "When I make a mistake, it's a beaut," Starr said, borrowing the words of New York City Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia. Starr had said he would step down in August to become dean of the law school at Pepperdine University in Malibu, Calif. That announcement caused critics, including fellow Republicans, to question his commitment to the three-year probe that began with allegations about the Clintons' investments in Arkansas.

WASHINGTON RENO ADDS STEAM TO ROSTY PROBE Attorney General Janet Reno told attorneys investigating Rep. Dan Rostenkowski, a powerful Democrat, to go "full-steam ahead," she said yesterday. Reno said she called J. Ramsey Johnson, the District of Columbia's interim U.S. attorney. Johnson succeeded Republican Jay Stephens, who had suggested the department sought his resignation to interfere with the probe of the Illinois Democrat who chairs the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee.

Despite his recent conviction on charges of theft by deception, Bucks County physician Richard G. Paolino says he is moving ahead "full steam" with plans to convert a former Warminster Township middle school into housing for the elderly. But he's not the only one interested in the property. Officials connected with involuntary bankruptcy proceedings against Paolino in U.S. Bankruptcy Court said this week that more than one investor has expressed interest in buying the 28-acre site of the former William Tennent Intermediate School on Street Road.

Gerald Henderson is a veteran. With two NBA championship rings earned with the Boston Celtics. With a world of experience. But there's always one more experience waiting around the bend. And one was lurking there last night, with 1.8 seconds left in what became the Detroit Pistons' 112-109 victory over Portland in Game 4 of the NBA championship series. The Pistons were protecting a 110-109 lead when Henderson - filling in for Vinnie Johnson, who had bruised a knee - dropped in a fastbreak layup.

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo. - For the last few years, ski resorts in cowboy country - and the skiers who love them - have been riding a bucking bronc. Huge dumps of snow blanketed slopes in the up years; in down years, late snow and warmer days cast a pall over the industry. At Steamboat Resort, in western Colorado, hard-core skiers were over the moon in 2008 when monster storms dropped 433 inches of snow on the slopes. But disbelief followed when the next winter brought fewer, weaker storms and half as much snow.

The Union closed the first half of their season with a performance Saturday that symbolized their first 15 up-and-down Major League Soccer games. After scoring one of their best goals of the season in the first half, the Union allowed one of the worst, settling for a 1-1 tie with the New England Revolution before 18,137 at PPL Park. The Union are 4-8-3 while New England is 4-9-3. First, the worst. In the 71st minute, New England's Marko Perovic took a free kick about 40 yards from goal.

Imagine practicing all week for a game - Christmas week, yet - with hopes of making the playoffs, only to learn right around kickoff time that those hopes were dashed by another team's win earlier in the day. Imagine firing up the grill and pouring a few at a tailgate gathering across the street from Lincoln Financial Field only to learn the ticket you hold for the game isn't worth the price you paid to park your van. Is that a buzz kill...

Hundreds of millions of dollars in construction, hundreds of jobs created and more on the way, dozens of new businesses, and thousands of new housing units. Welcome to the busy and growing Route 130 corridor. This area, now also known as the progressive Burlington County River Route, has been bolstered in recent months by NJ Transit's River Line, still in its infancy and attracting more and more passengers. An expanded Burlington County BurLink shuttle system also is feeding commuters into the rail stations.

Hey, remember Newt Gingrich? Big ego, big thinker? Loquacious provocateur who rose to fame in '94 as congressional leader of the conservative "revolution," only to flame out in '98? Worked to impeach President Bill Clinton for lying about sex, at a time when he himself was unfaithful to his second wife? Yes, sometimes it seems as if Gingrich is so five years ago. The former House speaker has been doing penance in the wilderness ever since, toiling at a think tank and hiring himself out as a management consultant - standard behavior for a Washington bull who has been put out to pasture.

Say you're the news director of a big-city television station. A pier collapses under a waterfront club, spilling dozens of patrons into debris-clogged water, three hours before the 11 p.m. newscast. Do you pre-empt network programming for wall-to-wall coverage of a breaking news story? Before you answer, let's add a difficulty factor: It's the last Thursday of May sweeps, a time when a station's ratings count even more than usual. Your network has been hyping that night's prime-time programming for weeks with promos promising all sorts of surprises.

North Penn coach Toby Watton has been trying to track down the information, but he believes that no tennis player had won four consecutive PIAA District 1 Class AAA singles championships until North Penn standout Cliff Nguyen achieved that feat last Friday. Nguyen beat Unionville's Derek Schwandt, 6-4, 6-3. Then again, the top-seeded Nguyen was expected to win, as he has done all season. "That's the most dangerous situation as a player and coach you can be in, because the only place to go is down," Watton said.
