As Kevin Horne strolled along 58th Street in West Philadelphia, he kept bumping into people who wanted a word with him. A mother had a question about fund-raising for the Carmelites, the drill team Horne and his wife founded. A young woman pushing a baby stroller wanted to know whether the Hornes would be running a lunch program for children next summer, like they did this summer. An older man inquired about Horne's antidrug group, Commitment Concerned, which has helped close several crack houses in the neighborhood.

AGENIUS IN photographing the events seen in the pages of the Daily News is retiring. Elwood Smith, who with camera in hand depicted the faces of joy, sadness and glory for so many years, will step aside. Elwood was the last of a special newspaper breed. His camera was the eye that brought the news, his pictures were the heart and soul of his subjects. Maybe someday, when a museum will feature the photos of this special breed, Elwood Smith will have a high place of honor. Frank Conforti Philadelphia

Chicago Bears coach Lovie Smith said after yesterday's 27-22 loss to the Minnesota Vikings that he hopes to have four-time all-pro linebacker Brian Urlacher in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Eagles at Soldier Field. Urlacher missed the first game of his five-year career yesterday. He aggravated a hamstring injury Thursday in practice. Urlacher, considered the heart and soul of the Chicago defense, had played in 66 straight games, including the last 64 as a starter.

I've had enough of William B. Collins' crass intellectualization of matters of the heart and soul. His Dec. 1 reference to Jerry Herman's music and lyrics as "old fashioned hack work" is inexcusable. I, too, did not feel the earth move from much of Hello Dolly or Mame, but songs like "Each Tomorrow Morning" and "I've Never Said I Love You" from Dear World and "Time Heals Everything" and "I Won't Send Roses" from Mack and Mabel are among the theater's finest. May I also remind Mr. Collins, who uses Sunday in the Park With George as an example of sophisticated theater, that he patently panned this magnificent show in two prior columns.

AS AN African-American who listens to sports-talk radio, I often wonder where is the diversity and difference of opinion when African-American athletes like Barry Bonds are constantly ridiculed. The majority of callers say Bonds should have an asterisk next to his name for breaking Babe Ruth's record after allegations that Bonds may have used steroids. How come these callers never say there should be an asterisk next to Ruth's name because he didn't play against African-American athletes?

It's common to prejudge a person's limitations. The Lior Lieblings of the world prove just how wrong and risky a game that can be. As reported in yesterday's Inquirer, 13-year-old Lior Liebling of Mount Airy took to the pulpit of the Congregation Mishkan Shalom recently for his bar mitzvah. This was no ordinary religious rite of passage. (In Judaism, a bar mitzvah signals that a boy is taking adult religious responsibility.) It was no ordinary event because Lior has Down syndrome, a genetic condition that causes mild to severe mental retardation.

DYLAN'S LONG-TIME LOVE SHAKING HIS MONEY TREE Bob Dylan's long-time honey, Ruth Tyrangiel, says she "devoted all aspects of her life" to the singer's needs, interest and well-being for 20 years. She also claims she co-wrote his music and helped manage his career. Now she's singing for her supper in a lawsuit filed in Tinseltown on Wednesday. Tyrangiel says the singer/songwriter treated her like a wife and now she wants a monthly stipend like a real ex-missus, plus half of Dylan's still- undetermined assets and $5 million in damages.

Whitey Haak and Pat Libro go back a long way. They attended Ocean City High School together in the late 1950s. Haak, the Mainland golf coach, and Libro, the Triton coach, have become reacquainted through high school golf over the last 20 years, and Haak knows how important Libro has been to high school golf in South Jersey. Libro is one of the main organizers of the prestigious Carl Arena tournament and will be sorely missed when he steps down as the head coach of Triton. Libro, 60, will retire after the school year ends.

IT'S A Stradivarius. That was a term used by a member of the Philadelphia Orchestra to describe the quality of the acoustics of the new Kimmel Center for Performing Arts, but it also describes the overall perfection of this heart-stirring new addition to the city's landscape. Built on a soaring scale, with the kind of precise attention to detail that's rare in this world, The Kimmel is a beautiful, finely tuned instrument: warm, rich, and stunning in its ability to move us. The acoustics, for example, are so grand that from the balcony, you can feel the vibrations of a piano being played on stage.

Did you awaken this morning and have fears about the future, fears for your family, for your children, for you, for America? And did you feel helpless because you do not know what you can do in the face of the magnitude of this evil? Then you have come to the right place and are doing what you can do best and what is best for all. You have come to pray to Him who taught you how to pray. And He asks you to pray constantly, to pray that hatred, racism, and all other evils will be removed from your heart and soul and from the hearts and souls of others.

Q: I have a really weird question that I've never seen addressed in your column. I'm wondering if the new guy I'm seeing is gay because he asked me to use a dildo on him from behind? I'm a little freaked out by him asking me to do that. Steve: If that's the only "sign," no. Having the prostate gland, sometime called the man's G-spot, digitally stimulated is very pleasurable to some men. Mia: Shouldn't you be asking him that question? Seriously, I don't get how people are willing to get buck naked with each other but unwilling to open up their mouths for something other than oral sex and actually talk to each other.

AS UNDERDOG stories go, when the Simon Gratz Bulldogs walk into a basketball gym, get your writing materials ready. The tale of the tape at the Simons Community Recreation Center yesterday was a visual account. With referees yet to enter the gym, host Delaware-Valley Charter and its band of long and lively leapers warmed up with a variety of impressive dunks. On the other end: the Bulldogs, whose roster sports several sub-6-footers, finger-rolled their way loose. Senior guard Malik Tyndale noticed the Warriors' aerial display, but the 5-7 guard wasn't fazed.

RUTH MORLEY, 79, has been the go-to Gal Friday and every other day at the Klein Jewish Community Center in Bustleton since 1975. So her retirement last week filled her 10th boss, president/CEO Andre Krug, with sadness - even though, as a parting gift, Morley gave him the childhood accordion she played "Lady of Spain" on at Tony Grant's "Stars of Tomorrow" on the Steel Pier in Atlantic City. "Now, I'm going to be crying," Krug told the Daily News . "I'm going to try to find somebody who has her creative juices, but I'm not sure I can. " Those creative juices, Krug said, included Morley's profitably renting the Klein JCC's theater to a wide range of acts, one of which made the late 1990s unforgettable.

IT'S NOT UNUSUAL to find a doctor in the house during Friday services at the Zubaida Foundation mosque in Lower Makefield - or several doctors. "We have two heart surgeons, for example," said mosque administrator Mohammed Husain. The largely professional, mostly second-generation immigrants who worship at the Bucks County mosque tend to be accomplished people. That's why America opened its doors in the first place to the Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi families who are the core of the congregation (now joined by some with roots in the Middle East and South Africa, along with American-born Muslims)

For those unfamiliar with Gil Ortale - or rather, with his quest to bake the perfect French canelé (pronounced cahn eh LAY) - it's the story of a local guy who in his midlife years not only established his métier in pastry, but also became absorbed in an endeavor that saved his soul. Ortale, who held a number of cooking and other jobs in the city over the last three decades, had been out of work and struggling till he started baking the obscure French pastry. "I was kind of in a tailspin," he says.

There were plenty of goals illustrating the scrappy, hard-nosed abandon of the Clearview girls' lacrosse team. But the ultimate symbol might have been the freshman who ended up being the game's hero - and not just because she netted the winner with 1 minute, 2 seconds left in regulation. Clearview midfielder Gianna Bowe's go-ahead score helped seal a 10-8 win over Lenape on Tuesday in the South Jersey Group 4 semifinals. But Bowe, a freshman midfielder standing a littler taller than 5-foot, was a warrior in the draw circle.

ARLINGTON, Texas - If Nolan Ryan had his own 2011 baseball card, there wouldn't be enough space to list all of his roles with the Texas Rangers. CEO. President. Part owner. Pitching guru. Consultant for all other baseball matters, on and off the field. Resident Hall of Famer and living legend. For Game 4 of the World Series, he'll even catch a ceremonial first pitch. And yet, despite all those titles, none captures the essence of what Ryan means to the Rangers. Ryan is the team's heart and soul.

MIKE BROWN insisted he was telling the truth. Again and again, he did so. Even promised. He was talking about football practice this week at Frankford High and how a certain play produced a touchdown . . . every . . . single . . . time. "And they weren't just little [distances], either," he said. "A couple times we ran it from maybe the 40 on the other side [of midfield]. " Brown is a 6-foot, 175-pound senior and he began the season as the starting safety. That job lasted for only 2 weeks; he was yanked after an admittedly poor performance in a non-league game vs. Unionville.

GIVEN A CHOICE between nine innings of great baseball and four quarters of so-so football, I always choose the pigskin. Don't get me wrong; a grand slam is magical, especially in late October. But just as there are cat people and dog people or leg men and breast men, there are also different kinds of sports fans. So let's just say that diamonds are not this girl's best friend. And yet there's one thing about baseball that's head and shoulders above its sports rival, at least in these parts.
