"It could be great," Scott MacKay of Sparta said on the way into the Trump Taj Mahal's Etess Arena. Others were more optimistic. "I'm just here to see Charlie," said Heather Shirley of Philadelphia. "I've been a fan since his '80s movies - Lucas , Platoon , Hot Shots . I love the man. " Sheen will never be mistaken for a model of stability or consistency.

Catherine Borresen walked into Bucks County Democratic headquarters in January, wanting to volunteer for "the cause. " She may have gotten more than she bargained for. At the time, the party lacked a candidate to run against State Rep. David W. Heckler, the 143d District's three-term incumbent. Borresen, 29, an editor at the Compendium of Continuing Education in Dentistry, in Newtown, became the party's candidate. She ran unopposed in the primary. Although, in her words, "I haven't even lost anything yet," she has also never held elected or appointed office.

"The guy said, 'Hit the net like any Negro would.' I was shocked," Williams said. "I couldn't believe it. I had to do a double take. I think I hit a double fault on that point. " Williams won the third-round match against Lucie Safarova, 6-3, 6-4. Williams complained late in the match to the chair umpire about the heckler.

Despite squandering a four-stroke lead in a span of three holes, Chris DiMarco ignored a heckler and put together a gritty comeback to win the Phoenix Open yesterday in Scottsdale, Ariz. DiMarco closed with a 2-under-par 69 for his third PGA Tour victory in as many seasons, but this one will be remembered as the one he tried to throw away. He recovered just in time, hitting his tee shot within 18 inches for a birdie on No. 16 that allowed him to catch Kenny Perry. He pulled ahead when Perry took bogey on the 332-yard 17th after missing the green in the worst place.

WHO WILL tell the 17-year-old boy at his hospital bedside that his mother, father, sister, grandmother, great-grandmother and aunt are dead when - and if - he wakes up? Who will kneel and take the boy's hand gently into theirs, telling him that things will be OK, never knowing if they really will? Who will acknowledge that he'll never again look forward to Christmastime? And will they be able to tell the boy that the man he once called uncle, the man accused of slaughtering his entire immediate family, has been captured?
