Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated today for Eugenio Gagliardi, a former West Philadelphia butcher whose meat-processing empire enabled people to make Philadelphia's world famous cheesesteak sandwiches in the humblest of kitchens. Gagliardi, who died Saturday, was 90, and lived in Lower Merion, Montgomery County. "Upon arriving in Ellis Island in New York, he found truth in what he believed - America is really a land of opportunity if you are willing to work," recalled a son, Gene Jr., in a profile on his father.

A Thornbury Township supervisor was reelected Tuesday, thanks to a well-organized write-in campaign. Preliminary results indicate that incumbent Brian Smith narrowly won a rematch that pitted him against challenger Louis J. Gagliardi, who defeated Smith by 24 votes in May's Republican primary. On Tuesday, Smith, 29, beat his opponent by 15 votes - but that could change when Chester County voting officials begin examining ballots on Friday. Gagliardi, 39, said he had not decided whether to challenge the results.

Joe Gagliardi is ready for the National League playoffs. Born in Brooklyn and raised on Long Island, Rutgers's senior quarterback always has been a big New York Mets fan. He shows his support by wearing the Mets' blue and orange batting helmet. "I know (Mets pitcher) Sid Fernandez," Gagliardi said. "He came down to my uncle's sneaker store in Queens to do some promotional work and he's been over the house a couple times. " Gagliardi has Big Apple juice flowing through his veins, but he might have to steal a page from an old Broadway Joe script to lead his 3-0-1 team to victory Saturday at fifth-ranked Penn State (3-0)

THE OBITUARIES have it wrong. Joe Paterno, the Penn State coaching legend who was 85 when he died Sunday morning of complications from lung cancer, was not the last dinosaur of his profession. He was not the last of his kind. In Collegeville, Minn., a picturesque hamlet located 70 miles northwest of Minneapolis, there is someone whose accomplishments as a football coach and as a nurturing mentor to his players rival that of JoePa, and in some instances are even more astounding.

A year after he was sent to the troubled Camden School District, Vito Gagliardi has resigned as head of a state-appointed task force, saying the job was too demanding. Gagliardi, a retired superintendent of schools in Union County, has been a consultant to the state for three years. He said he had hoped to work only one year with the state but kept accepting assignments, including the one in Camden. "I'm retired," he said. "I wasn't looking to work full time, and, quite honestly, that Camden project is not only full time, I see it as at least a five- to maybe 10-year project in order for it to be done correctly.

Chester County voting officials reversed the outcome of a closely contested supervisors race here after counting 64 missing ballots. With the missing ballots, Louis J. Gagliardi, the endorsed Republican candidate, fended off a well-organized write-in campaign from incumbent Brian M. Smith by 14 votes. Smith, who could not be reached for comment, has five days to challenge the results. The ballots were not counted on election night because they were put in the wrong pile, said Sue Hillenbrand, a supervisor in the county's Department of Voter Services.

Reputed Trenton mob associate Anthony "Tony Gags" Gagliardi, who opted to serve as his own defense attorney, was convicted of federal cocaine-trafficking charges yesterday following a weeklong trial in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia. Gagliardi, 52, was found guilty of two of the four counts in the case and faces a mandatory minimum 10-year sentence because of a prior conviction for heroin trafficking, according to Assistant U.S. Attorney Barry Gross. Gross prosecuted the case along with Erik L. Olsen, the chief deputy attorney general in the Organized Crime Section of the Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office.

It would seem to anyone with a mastery of grammar that Ofo Ezeugwu blew it with the naming of his company, WhoseYourLandlord.com . That certainly was the reaction of his freshman English professor at Temple University when he visited a table Ezeugwu was manning on campus to promote his landlord-rating website. "I know I taught you better than this," Ezeugwu recalled James Mellis telling him. The name should be Who's YourLandlord, teacher told former student. But that would be missing the point, Ezeugwu explained to Mellis and, last week, to me. "We use the possessive form of who because we're giving renters ownership of their situation by putting housing in their hands," Ezeugwu said.
