Despite having problems with the late hit that caused a season-ending shoulder injury, New York Giants receiver Ike Hilliard yesterday refused to criticize Eagles safety Brian Dawkins. The NFL fined Dawkins $50,000 for the hit that separated Hilliard's right shoulder and tore his labrum in the third quarter of a Monday night game at Veterans Stadium on Oct. 27. "I am not going to blast Dawkins," said Hilliard, who is scheduled to have surgery next week. "He's a good football player.

Brian Dawkins looked puzzled. "How long ago was that game?" he asked. "How many months ago was that?" Dawkins knew exactly when the Eagles' last game against the New York Giants was. It was Oct. 28, at Veterans Stadium. On Monday Night Football, no less. The Eagles won, 17-3. But the reason Dawkins was being asked had nothing to do with the final score. Early in the third quarter, Giants quarterback Kerry Collins threw a deep pass for wide receiver Ike Hilliard. Dawkins ran toward Hilliard with his head lowered.

New York Giants receiver Ike Hilliard will miss the rest of the season with a dislocated right shoulder suffered on a hit by Eagles All-Pro safety Brian Dawkins. An MRI yesterday disclosed a tear in both Hilliard's labrum and pectoralis muscle. He will undergo surgery in about a month and will at some point be placed on injured reserve. "It's not for me to determine whether or not it was a dirty hit," Hilliard said. "It was late. Dawkins is a good, aggressive player. I'm not one to shy away from contact, so I'm not going to cry about it. That wouldn't do my shoulder any good.

Rick Mirer is in and Erik Kramer is out as the Chicago Bears desperately try to salvage their season by changing quarterbacks. Mirer, the lowest-ranked passer in the NFL last season, was acquired in February from Seattle for a first-round draft pick and was signed to a three-year, $10 million contract. But he hadn't played until Sunday, when he replaced Kramer in the third quarter of the Bears' 32-7 loss to the Detroit Lions. Kramer, who set several team passing records in 1995 but missed most of last year with a neck injury, has lost his last six starts and is 4-11 since the midpoint of the 1995 season.

When William A. Hilliard returned to his hotel room one night last week, he found four messages waiting - two from his office and two from the White House. They were all about the same thing: Would the Portland, Ore., editor like to fly back to the West Coast with President Clinton, who was going to a forest conference in Portland? How many people ever say no to such an invitation? But Hilliard, editor of the Oregonian, the state's largest newspaper, was forced to do just that.

Democratic U.S. Rep. Earl Hilliard said Philadelphia's First Congressional District reminds him of his own Alabama district: predominantly African American, largely poor and long neglected because of inadequate representation. That's why, when Harvey Clark wrote to him and asked for his help, Hilliard readily agreed to come to town to campaign with the underdog, who is seeking the Democratic nomination for the First District. "Harvey Clark can do more for this district because he's familiar with it, and he has a desire and commitment to making a difference in this district," Hilliard said yesterday at a rally at Christian Tabernacle Church in North Philadelphia.

When the BlackStar Film Festival, highlighting cinema culled from the African diaspora, hits venues around University City starting Thursday, it will bring its usual retinue of serious narrative and documentary fare. BlackStar's closing film happens to be its starkest, darkest entry: Treasure: From Tragedy to Trans Justice, Mapping a Detroit Story , a documentary from filmmaker dream hampton about the vicious 2011 murder of a black trans teen, 19-year-old Shelley "Treasure" Hilliard, who was ritually burned and dismembered, as though her murderer had a desire to erase rather than kill.

There aren't many Jews in Alabama's Seventh Congressional District. Not a whole lot of folks from the Middle East either. In fact, the district is 62 percent African American, and both of the candidates in the Democratic run-off primary next Tuesday are black as well. That hasn't stopped the Arab-Israeli conflict from becoming a key factor in an ugly and fascinating contest that is attracting national money and attention. I don't want to overstate what's going on in Alabama.
