EVIAN, France - Michelle Wie knows it's tough keeping up with the best men in the game. In the French Alps yesterday, she learned that beating golf's top female money winner this season, Mexico's Lorena Ochoa, won't be much easier. Ochoa, Mi Hyun Kim and Shani Waugh shot 6-under-par 66s at Evian Golf Club to lead after the first round of the Evian Masters, with temperatures reaching 91 degrees. A year ago, Ochoa was the runner-up with Wie here when Paula Creamer won. Creamer opened this time with a 70. Karrie Webb was a shot behind after a 67, with Maria Hjorth, Laura Davies and Se Ri Pak in at 68. Wie had a 69, and was tied with Annika Sorenstam and four others.

"I can't stand Christmas any more. It's just 'gimme, gimme, gimme.' " You've said it. If you haven't, someone you know has. Sad but true, what started long ago as a celebration of the birth of a pretty special boy turned - for some folks both little and big - into the "gimme" holiday. So this week, with the onslaught about to begin, we're pointing you and yours in the direction of some non-gimme but holiday-related activities. Ironically, Strawbridge & Clothier, the department store - and a fine old place for a fit of the "gimmes" - sponsors an annual opportunity for youthful altruism, a healthy lesson in giving amidst the anticipated getting.

IN THE PAST, my children's Christmas wishes were modest. One year Eve wanted Dora the Explorer. Another year Little Solomon wanted a dancing Spider-Man. Occasionally they'd ask for the latest fad toy, and we'd fight for the last Tickle Me Elmo. This year is different, though. Solomon's 8 and Eve is 11, and they're entering a normal but ugly time in their development - the "Gimme that" phase. Now, before you go indicting us for raising self-centered egomaniacs, I assure you, we've done the best we could.

IN school, the bully would grab your shirt, put his fist in your face and say, "Gimme a dime or I'll beat you up. " So you'd pay up. Now, imagine that after years of coughing up your milk money, the bully says, "I've taken a lot of money from you. Here's a nickel back," expecting you to thank him for his generosity. What would your response be? Thank him for returning what was yours to begin with? Where is the other $4.95 he had taken? Yet this is how some people think we should be acting about the tax rebate because after six decades of the federal government taking money from our grandparents, our parents and ourselves, they will give some of us a mere token back.

Sorting through piles of new DVDs lately has been a strange and winding trip down the road of my '80s sitcom youth. February alone brought Growing Pains, Night Court, and Charles in Charge among the many releases that will spur visions of OP shirts, Girbaud jeans, and black-and-red Air Jordans. The top pick this month by far, however, is the often-overlooked NBC production of Gimme a Break! The first season, which began in October 1981, is out on DVD. For collectors interested in that era or fans of the late Nell Carter, it's essential.

Gov. Christie made it clear last week that he will seek the 2016 Republican nomination for president as a hawk, saying the libertarian approach to national security ascendant in some quarters of the GOP leads straight to the horror of Sept. 11. "These esoteric, intellectual debates - I want them to come to New Jersey and sit across from the widows and the orphans and have that conversation," Christie said at a gathering of the Republican Governors Association in Aspen, Colo. "And they won't, because that's a much tougher conversation to have.

COMEDIAN BILL COSBY has placed the blame for the high rate of incarceration, illiteracy and dropouts among youth squarely on parents. Cosby declined to be interviewed for our story. But here are excerpts from the 2004 speech he delivered during a commemoration of the 1954 Brown vs. Topeka Board of Education decision. "In our own neighborhood, we have men in prison. No longer is a person embarrassed because they're pregnant without a husband. No longer is a boy considered an embarrassment if he tries to run away from being the father . . .

She's under 5 feet 2 and she doesn't have eyes of blue - but boy, what 4- foot-11-inch brown-eyed Nell Carter can do these days. The star of NBC's "Gimme a Break" says she tapes an entire episode of her series in one run-through, with rarely a second take. And she maintains that her four-year marriage to Dr. Georg Krynicki is going strong, despite the fact that he lives and works in Vienna, Austria. And she raises a mean patch of watermelons at her Beverly Hills canyon home. Carter also can bring in the ratings.

It just was not meant for Bob Baffert to have a horse in the 2015 Pennsylvania Derby. After nearly luring Triple Crown winner American Pharoah with a months-long fullcourt press, Parx director of racing Sam Elliott got a nice consolation prize when Baffert entered Gimme Da Lute, a winner of four consecutive Southern California stakes. Gimme Da Lute was flown to Allentown Tuesday and arrived on the Parx backstretch with top Baffert assistant Jimmy Barnes early that evening. Unfortunately, the colt will not run in today's $1 million Pa. Derby.

DISNEY Channel graduate Vanessa Hudgens goes gritty again in "Gimme Shelter," playing a homeless, pregnant teen who finds refuge in a shelter. It's Hudgens' second consecutive I'm-a-grown-up-now role - she was one of the armed party girls in last year's over-the-top consumerist satire, "Spring Breakers. " "Gimme Shelter" is a far more sober affair - it's drawn from the work of Kathy DiFiore, a New Jersey woman who opened her home to pregnant teens in the 1980s, and who has since expanded to a string of not-for-profit shelters in the state.

Supermodel Cara Delevingne, the 20-year-old face of major fashion brands - think Chanel, Burberry, Marc Jacobs, and YSL - has young girls (and boys) touting her off-the-runway style: slouchy beanie hats, graphic T's, and super-skinny jeans. Take her tomboy minimalist charm and combine it with her ultra-girly looks, and no wonder she walks top designer runways for Diane von Furstenberg, Stella McCartney, Jason Wu, and Oscar de la Renta. In March, British Vogue named Delevingne model of the year.

THEY SAY EVERYBODY gets 15 minutes of fame. For an unnamed Louisville cheerleader, that time came yesterday. Unfortunately, he won't be remembered for pulling off some fancy move such as throwing a coed high into the air and catching her. No, this ding-dong will go down in history as the cheerleader who almost cost his team the game. Here's what happened: Louisville led Pittsburgh, 60-57, with overtime winding down. Kyle Kuric dunked to put the Cardinals ahead by five.
