At first it must have seemed like an earthquake. The earth opened and swallowed homes, businesses and people for five miles of streets. But this disaster was man made, by an institution that has ruined nearly every Latin American country: government. After sewer explosions took some 200 lives in Guadalajara, Mexico, last week, city officials and the state-owned petroleum monopoly, Pemex, blamed a local oil company for dumping flammable gas into sewers. The oil company blamed Pemex and Guadalajara authorities.

If this city had a doormat, it would read "Welcome Americans. " At least 25,000 Americans have retired or settled in the metropolis, and perhaps that many again live in the rest of the state of Jalisco, of which Guadalajara is the capital. Obviously, they like the low living costs and springlike climate, not to mention the innate friendliness of the locals, the tapatios. If you've never been to Mexico, Guadalajara - the City of Roses - is a nice place for a first visit.

QUEBEC 4 MARINES FOUND INNOCENT OF RAPE A judge acquitted four U.S. Marines of sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl, ruling yesterday that there wasn't enough evidence to prove it. Quebec Court Judge Maximilien Polak said he believed the girl's story that she was raped by one man and fondled by three others, but he ruled her identification of the accused wasn't enough for a conviction. "At one time or another she identified nine individuals in a crime that was committed by four people," Polak said.

The fugitive leader of a major document-forging ring that allegedly supplied bogus identity papers to millions of illegal immigrants over the last two decades has been arrested in Mexico, federal officials said yesterday. Pedro Castorena, 42, is accused of heading the family-run enterprise that has dominated the document-forging industry in the United States since the late 1980s, according to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials. He had been one of ICE's most wanted fugitives after a federal grand jury indicted him nearly a year ago on charges of conspiracy, fraud, misuse of visas and money-laundering.

Lori Pollard, who once lived in West Philadelphia, is designing her dream house on a nearly deserted, environmentally protected barrier-reef island off the coast of Honduras for a fraction of what such a project would cost in the States. This, she says, is retirement. For Pollard, husband Hoss, and hundreds of thousands of other U.S. citizens, retirement is not the good life unless it is lived abroad - or, at least, south of the border. Far from the madding crowds, winter snows and high prices, the Pollards plan to spend their old age swaying in the trade winds.

There is a belief, currently popular in intellectual circles, that all cultures are basically equal, that we Americans have no standing to criticize the practices of others. I do not share this view. Many cultural practices are so abhorrent that they can safely be condemned by anyone with a working set of senses. But then there's cockfighting. Like most Americans, I had always assumed that cockfighting was inexcusable, that - to put it in Hobbesian terms - the life of a fighting cock was nasty, brutish and short.

A Bucks County man who vanished after pleading guilty to sexually assaulting four teenage boys was captured yesterday in southwestern Mexico nearly four months after disappearing. Ronald Schaffer, 59, a retired waiter and caterer from Middletown, was surprised early in the morning by Mexican authorities at a house in a small town outside Guadalajara where he had been teaching English to local nurses and living with a woman and her 8-year-old son, Bucks County investigators said.

Eduardo Najera plays basketball fearlessly. The Oklahoma junior isn't afraid to throw around his 6-foot-8, 235-pound body battling for a rebound, isn't averse to diving for a loose ball, no matter his chances. That sort of spirit prompted Najera (pronounced NAH-her-uh) to leave Mexico at age 18 for a senior year of high school in the United States in the hope of landing a college scholarship, even though he knew only a few words of English. It turned out to be a good move.

FOR ANYONE who has ever played soccer, you know the term "power vs. finesse" is a requisite when it comes to coach speak. Last night, the Union used both in a 1-0 victory over Chivas de Guadalajara at PPL Park. Second-half substitution Jack McInerney finessed a through-ball from Justin Mapp past Chivas goalkeeper Sergio Arias in the 48th minute to give the Union the win in the final international friendly. It was the 18-year-old's third goal of the year and his second in as many games after scoring the equalizer in the Union's 2-1, come-from-behind victory over New England last Saturday.

Less nostalgia, more deja vu. This is what Michael Orozco Fiscal hopes for when it comes to the Union and their final friendly match of the season tonight against Mexican power Chivas de Guadalajara. "The last time I played against them I scored," recalled Orozco Fiscal, on loan to the Union from Mexican First Division side San Luis FC. "It was off a corner and they went to clear it. We won the ball back and a cross came in from the right side. I split two defenders and headed it in. " That was during his stint with San Luis last season, but Chivas is now much different.

It's lunchtime and Mexico Lindo is packed. The orders for quesadillas are piling up and owner Eloy Zapata is pressing dough balls into football-shaped tortillas. Meanwhile, the voice of mariachi crooner Jose Alfredo Jimenez blares out of the jukebox, telling the sad story of a lonely man and a bottle of tequila. The tortilla press - like the tortillas - is homemade, from 2-by-6-inch pieces of wood. "When you're far away from your country, you have to improvise," said Zapata, owner of the restaurant on Federal Street in Camden.

LONDON FLESH-EATING GERM KILLS 7TH BRITON British hospital officials said today a seventh person had died from a bacteria that literally dissolves human flesh. Health ministers have appealed for calm about reports of an outbreak of the infection, which is caused by the common and usually harmless streptococcus bacteria. Doctors at a hospital in southern England said a 58-year-old woman died there last month from the infection, which has killed at least six other people across Britain this year.
