"Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult" massacred the Academy Awards weekend box-office competition with a $13.2 million opening gross that was more than double the $5 million collected by second-ranked "Guarding Tess. " The third in the popular "Police Squad" spinoff movies, "Naked Gun 33 1/ 3" opened much bigger than the first, which held up $9.3 million back in December 1988, but not nearly as well as the second, which took in nearly $21 million in June 1991. Another new comedy, "Monkey Trouble," scored $4.5 million to grab third place, and Steven Spielberg's "Schindler's List," placed in 1,246 theaters to take advantage of its Oscar-favorite status, was fourth with $4.3 million.

The celebrity judges agreed - barely - with the radio talk-show host: Paesano's of Northern Liberties makes the area's best Italian hoagie. The audience of more than 500, however, named a different favorite: Primo Hoagies, with many area locations. Food fans packed the Fox & Hound Pub in King of Prussia on Saturday, as Glen Macnow of WIP-AM (610) emceed a live broadcast of the finale of the Great Hoagie Hunt, his fifth annual food hunt. Macnow tried and rated more than 50 hoagies in two months, then invited his top eight finishers to bring samples for everyone at the event.

After taking a fresh look at a controversial ash heap in Roxborough, the Environmental Protection Agency has concluded the ash poses "no imminent and substantial danger" to residents or the environment. But some of the neighbors of the city's Northwest Incinerator yesterday remained unconvinced. "No matter what EPA has to say, the dioxins are there and the heavy metals are there," said Bill Schwartz, president of the Germany Hill Civic Association, "and unless they're stored in a lined landfill, the people are in trouble.

Don't look now, but the city is missing a mountain. The infamous Roxborough mound - last of the city's great ash heaps - has been loaded up and carted away. Its disappearance means that if you drive by the Northwest Incinerator at Domino Lane and Umbria Street, you actually can see more than the top of the stack. "There's no mountain there anymore," said Bill Schwartz, president of the Germany Hill Civic Association, which had sued the city to have the mountain moved.

Coaches usually are the meticulous type. Everything has to be planned to the most minute detail. And they rarely like surprises. Upper Darby gymnastics coach Rich Pagano had one of those few-and-too-far- between pleasant surprises show up in his gym at the beginning of the season: junior transfer Bernadette Woods. "I wasn't sure what I was getting. I didn't know her at all," Pagano said. "I never saw her before she worked out with us for the first time. But then I saw her skill level was pretty high, and she had real good technique.

Loose ball! For those toiling on NFL lines, no words get the adrenaline pumping as rapidly as these two. A loose ball offers unlimited opportunity for men who rarely are more than numbers in a heap, a chance to rise from that obscurity to stardom instantaneously by throwing their body over a football as a brave soldier would give himself up for a land mine. Like that brave soldier, there is a downside, although no one in the NFL yet has died from being caught underneath six or more 280-pound men fighting for the football.

After packing a ball of snow to proper size along his lawn, Nicholas Sheehan, 7, yesterday gamely tried to lift the chilly chunk atop another, larger ball to make a snowman. But the wet, heavy snow - so perfect for rolling - was too much for the second grader. He lost his grip, and then his balance, and the ball of snow landed in a slushy heap. Undaunted, the boy, who lives on Baltimore Avenue in West Philadelphia, said he still had a good mound from which to throw snowballs.

Kids tell him what they like to do. Then they tell him what they do well. Then it becomes his job to let them know what career opportunities are available and how to make their hopes a reality. Michael Dominick acknowledges that he is taking on a big job, but if the Higher Education Awareness Program (HEAP) in Coatesville middle schools is a success, students will graduate from high school, enroll in some type of higher education and find careers in better-paying fields. The goal of the two-year program, introduced in September to the seventh and eighth grades in the Coatesville Area School District, is to make the average student aware of careers and post-high school educational opportunities that are available.

The way to hell can be paved with good intentions - and end in a massive heap of tires. That's what happened when the city and Conrail spent $412,000 to clean up the tracks in Kensington, and left the neighborhood with a tire mountain more than a year ago. "Luckily, nobody has lit those tires up," said George Vera, block captain on Tusculum Street, where homes overlook the heap of at least 2,000 tires. "We're afraid, because of the big fire, we're afraid that is going to happen here," said his wife, Carmen, recalling the tire fire that wrecked a section of Interstate 95 a few weeks ago. Chemical tank cars pass close by the tire heap a couple of times a day on Conrail's Port Richmond branch to the waterfront.

The team at the top of the mountain showed up at the Wells Fargo Center Monday night to play the team digging a hole so deep that it may eventually reach the planet's inner core. Fortunately for the coach of the team digging the historic hole, the man in charge of the team at the top of the mountain is one of his best friends. If nothing else, the coach of the woebegone winless basketball team from Philadelphia was going to get some quality time with his mountaintop mentor before the evening's proceedings began and another game was added to the 76ers' loss column.

Dylan Cummings never figured he would be a record-setter. He certainly never expected to be a revolutionary. But the Pennsville quarterback is front and center of an all-out assault on the South Jersey record book. "A lot of people played a part in this," Cummings said of his pending rise to the No. 1 spot in South Jersey history for career passing yards. The 5-foot-10, 175-pound senior will enter Friday night's home game against Highland with 5,873 yards. He needs 56 to break former Cherry Hill East star Kevin Foley's record of 5,928, set in 1991, and 127 to become the first player in South Jersey history to pass for 6,000 yards.

Has Camden Iron & Metal scrapped the plan to move its iconic scrap heap out of Philadelphia, where the mountain of crushed cars just over the bridge from the airport stands as a dubious but enduring welcome to Philadelphia? Only the chief scrappers know for sure. For now, neighbors are tired - literally - of the earthshaking booms they and the city health department say are shaking their homes and violating noise ordinances at all hours. They want the city to deny owner SPC Corp.

Surviving slavery, segregation, and discrimination has forged a special pride in African Americans. Now some are saying this hard-earned pride has become prejudice in the form of blind loyalty to President Obama. Are black people supporting Obama mainly because he's black? If race is just one factor in blacks' support of Obama, does that make them racist? Can blacks' support for Obama be compared with white voters who may favor his Republican challenger, Mitt Romney, because he's white?

In ancient Greece, priests gathered at the Temple of Apollo on Mount Parnassus, the better to interpret the deity-inspired prophecies of Pythia, the Oracle of Delphi. Google, for all its omnipresence, is no deity, yet legions practice search-engine optimization in an effort to divine the secret algorithms that move certain websites to the top of an online search. Now comes candidate optimization , essentially the same idea applied to job seekers, with services that help them tweak their resumés so they end up at the top of a list generated by a company's computerized talent-management system.

Camden Iron & Metal and its heap of crushed scrap at the foot of the Platt Memorial Bridge near the airport are moving to Camden, along with 175 jobs and the promise of 50 hires. The unsightly junkyard of crushed cars and washing machines that is synonymous with 26th Street and Penrose Avenue - the gateway to Philadelphia for millions of visitors - will disappear after the scrap recycler installs, by the end of this year, a modern new shredder at Atlantic and Front Streets in Camden.

HERE'S A THOUGHT for Presidents Day: President Santorum. Did you just shiver? How in the name of all that's holy is Rick Santorum atop national polls for the Republican nomination? Get it? All that's holy? Maybe that's the answer. You know, the Tebow factor; the Jeremy Lin effect? Well, I have another theory. I wrote Rick off after his strong showing in Iowa, a state that - in an example of what a wacky year this is - he officially won weeks later by one-tenth of 1 percent.

The Beyoncé baby brouhaha has so spiraled out of control, it's sucked in New York's Mayor Bloomberg . The p.r. stink bomb went off when civilians complained that B. and hub Jay-Z received such VIP treatment at Lenox Hill Hospital last week for the birth of their daughter, Blue Ivy , that the regular folk weren't able to see their own newborns. Seems an entire wing of the hospital was closed off by Jay-Z's bodyguards. The power couple paid to have the area refurbished a month ago, when workers tore down six to eight rooms and turned them into two suites with mahogany walls, an unnamed source tells Us Weekly.

Justin Rose says Aronimink isn't the kind of layout you can "bully. " He should know. He's the defending champion of the AT & T National, which begins Thursday in Newtown Square. A year ago the Englishman, who turns 31 at the end of July, had just won his first PGA Tour title a month earlier at the Memorial. Then he came here and shot 10-under-par 270 at Aronimink to win by one over hard-charging Ryan Moore (final-round 65). "It's a golf course you can't chase scores on," Rose said on a recent teleconference.
