TO THOSE IN THE CITY who oppose the red lit logo that Unisys wants to erect on Liberty Place as a condition of moving 225 of its executive jobs to Center City, we have just one word: Kvaerner. A decade ago, the European shipbuilder got $430 million in public subsidies and tax breaks based on a promise of creating 1,000 jobs -over 15 years. Not long after pocketing the dough, Kvaerner decided to get out of the shipbuilding business. The point is, using the same tortured math that state officials used on Kvaerner, Unisys would be eligble for $100 million in public subsidies; in fact, some might argue that since the Unisys jobs would be highly compensated executive positions, that might equal 500 shipbuilding jobs and double that to $200 million.

When green-haired Dennis Rodman roared up to the Alamodome in his white jeep, a few dozen waiting fans cheered him on. When he stepped onto the basketball court, a few thousand admirers did the same. The controversial forward stole the show last night as the host San Antonio Spurs defeated the Washington Bullets, 122-101. Rodman played in his first regular-season game after two suspensions and a leave of absence. "I add spice, so people like to see somebody different," Rodman said before the game.

If he can withstand the pain, he can play in the Olympics. That was the verdict on the Flyers' Jiri Dopita, a center from the Czech Republic who missed his fifth consecutive game last night because of a strained neck. "Our doctors said he can play if he can withstand the soreness," Flyers general manager Bob Clarke said. "You know he's tough. He'd play if he could. . . . Our doctors won't stop him from playing. " Clarke said he asked his medical staff to notify Czech officials that Dopita's pain had kept him sidelined.

How many bureaucrats does it take to put up a traffic light? Too many, if you ask Gloucester Township Mayor Ann Mullen. "The red tape is enough to make you scream and want to clutch someone's throat," said the mayor. Fourteen years after the township first dreamed of stringing traffic signals across the intersection of Hickstown and Erial Roads, the state Department of Transportation (DOT) last month gave the project a green light. The roads cross at the southeast corner of the 60-acre GEMS landfill, and each is a major artery through nearby housing developments.

The comment that haunted Tyler Green was deceptive, like a changeup. It started out looking like a compliment and then, whoops, it wasn't quite what it seemed. "There's never been any question that Tyler Green has the stuff to be a winning big-league pitcher," Phillies manager Jim Fregosi would say. "There's never been any question that he has the arm. " But, of course, the Phillies' No. 1 draft choice in the June 1991 draft had never been a winning big-league pitcher. Had never, in fact, won a big-league game.

Catholic League athletes fearing that their fall seasons would be lost may be able to put their worries to rest. With the Philadelphia Archdiocese reaching a tentative agreement with its lay teachers yesterday, practices are allowed to resume today and games could begin again as soon as the agreement is ratified. Conwell-Egan athletic director Chuck Knowles, the Catholic League football chairman, said that league athletic directors likely will meet on Monday to discuss how to handle games that had been called off because of the strike, how to rearrange schedules and to determine whether teams have had enough practice time to begin playing.

The township gave up its fight against a proposed Route 1 car wash after the first round in court, agreeing Tuesday not to appeal a judge's order to grant the developer a conditional use permit. The decision, handed down in Bucks County Court by Judge Susan Devlin Scott on March 14, gives Francis T. Theuer the go-ahead to build a car wash on an old used-car lot just east of Woodbourne Road. The supervisors cited traffic and safety concerns in denying Theuer's conditional use application after a public hearing in 1993.

WASHINGTON - Domonic Brown rewarded Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg for giving him a green light on a 3-0 count. Brown drilled Tanner Roark's fastball for a solo home run to right field in the sixth inning of Saturday's 3-1 win over Washington at Nationals Park. "He is one of the better players [at 3-0 counts]," Sandberg said. ". . . He enjoys the green light, and it takes the thought process out of it, and he has had some success in that situation. " In his career, Brown has faced a 3-0 count 41 times.

ALLENTOWN - Walking to the plate in the top of the seventh inning, Lansdale Catholic's Ashley Seal wasn't sure what to do. Should she bunt to advance the runners, or swing away and hope to knock in one of her teammates? Crusaders coach Paul Suder knew what he wanted to do. With runners on first and second, none out, and his team down by a run in the PIAA Class AAA softball quarterfinals, he wasn't going to have his team go for the tie, he said. They were going to go for the win, and his sophomore pitcher, Seal, had the green light to swing.

SCORERS dream of basking in its glow. Its power is great but proves elusive for most because only the trustworthy are granted control. Abraham Lincoln senior guard Raymond Fred said he was deemed worthy yesterday and used it to score 30 points in the Railsplitters' 78-73 takedown of visiting Northeast High. "It was out of hand, to be honest," Fred said, laughing. "In the second half, coach just gave me the green light, so I tried to make things happen. " Fred finished 11-for-16 from the field with two assists and two steals.

The surgeon who operated on Nerlens Noel's left knee says the 76ers rookie should be ready to play in a game in four to six weeks. The Sixers say Noel's return isn't that simple, and it will be on their terms. Orthopedic surgeon James Andrews told ESPN.com on Wednesday that Noel was "doing excellent, and that team is taking good care of him. " A source close to the situation added that "his knee is fine. He just needs to get in basketball shape. " Noel had surgery after he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in February during his lone season at Kentucky.

IS COUNCILMAN Bill Green a good candidate to run the School Reform Commission? Green appears to be on the short list for Gov. Corbett's pick to fill the vacancy left by the departure of Pedro Ramos. (Others include former Pennsylvania Convention Center chief Al Mezzaroba and Farah Jimenez, of the People's Emergency Center.) Green has many ideas about education, having issued two policy papers in the past few years on the subject, calling for, among other things, vouchers, more charters and a radical reorganization of the school system.

BALTIMORE - With one condition, the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Commission on Thursday gave the parent company of Parx Casino in Bensalem a green light to continue its bid to build an $800 million casino south of Washington. The condition is that Greenwood Racing's chairman, Robert W. Green, end his friendship with the penny-stock swindler Robert E. Brennan, who served more than nine years in federal prison for bankruptcy fraud and obstruction of justice. Green and Brennan got to know each other in the late 1980s when Green formed a company to buy PhiladelphiaPark racetrack - now home to Parx - from Brennan's International Thoroughbred Breeders Inc. for $67 million.

ABINGTON Those controversial red-light cameras, already in use in Philadelphia, New Jersey, and elsewhere in the country, could soon make their first appearance in the Pennsylvania suburbs. The Abington Township Board of Commissioners voted, 14-1, last week to approve the installation of the cameras, designed to catch drivers who run red lights. The township is waiting for the approval of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, which will review current traffic-control measures at three busy intersections this week.

IT'S THAT time of year again. Time for green-shirted, green-socked, green-capped, green-beaded, green-tatted, green-haired and even green-bearded gaggles to ride yellow school buses and drink yellow beer in celebration of an ancient Irish saint who, it's safe to say, never chugged a Miller Lite. This particular traveling troupe of Philadelphia-based St. Patrick's Day partyers, who favor getting smashed well before the actual holy day March 17, are participants in the city's biggest bar crawls.

THE DETROIT Tigers say reliever Brayan Villarreal is not expected to leave spring training after his family escaped unharmed from a kidnapping attempt in Venezuela on Friday night. Villarreal has remained with the team. Manager Jim Leyland did not want to comment further about the matter, saying Sunday: "The less said, the better. " Villarreal, 25, went 3-5 with a 2.63 ERA last year in 50 appearances, with 66 strikeouts in 54 2/3 innings. Security back home has been a concern in recent years for Venezuelan players and their families because of a rising wave of kidnappings.

For what Imhotep Charter coach Andre Noble called "some bad practice efforts," Abraham Massaley recently lost his starting position. "I'm not used to coming off the bench," the senior guard said. "But at this point of the season, you have to put your ego aside and just play hard. " On Sunday at Temple's Liacouras Center, Massaley's late basket lifted the Panthers to a 67-66 triumph over Rysheed Jordan and never-say-die Vaux in a thrilling Public League final. His deciding field goal, on a left-side drive, came with 12 seconds to play.
