Under pressure by the Pennsylvania Department of Health, the James C. Giuffre Medical Center named a new 15-member board of directors yesterday, ousting Dr. James C. Giuffre and appointing Philadelphia businessman G. Fred DiBona as its chairman. The ouster of Giuffre from the board appears to end his nearly 40 years of control of the North Philadelphia hospital, which has been cited by the state Health Department for serious lapses in the quality of patient care. The department had held Giuffre and the hospital's board responsible for the problems.

Queen Elizabeth II made Ronald Reagan a knight yesterday, but there was no kneeling, no dubbing and no "Sir Ronald" because the knighthood is an honorary title given to foreigners. The former president received the title Honorary Knight Grand Cross of the Most Honorable Order of the Bath after a private lunch in the queen's dining room at Buckingham Palace. "I can't say how proud I am to receive it," Reagan said to the queen when she accompanied him and his wife, Nancy, to their car. Reagan showed reporters gathered outside the palace his knighthood badge - a gold Maltese cross with a rose, thistle and shamrock and three imperial crowns.

You get the feeling that perhaps Italian skiing star Alberto Tomba has tried this one before. Why else would he go on vacation carrying a picture of himself dressed in an Italian police uniform? The picture came in handy Wednesday when Tomba, who has won three Olympic gold medals and one silver, was pulled over by police for weaving in and out of traffic as if he were back on the slalom course at Val d'Isere. Tomba was headed north at 3:35 p.m. when he sped by Deputy Larry Kelley, who watched him pass about 10 cars using the middle turn lane, intended for drivers turning left, Capt.

DREW BREES took some time out of his Sunday to sign autographs on items ranging from a black jersey handed to him by a fan to a $100 million contract handed to him by the New Orleans Saints. The star quarterback, who had agreed verbally to his historic deal Friday, visited team headquarters to take a physical and put pen to paper on the 5-year contract that gives him the highest average annual pay ($20 million) in NFL history. Brees then grabbed a sandwich to go at a Jimmy John's sandwich shop he owns, where he posed for photos, shook hands and signed autographs for star-struck fans before hopping in a white sport utility vehicle and heading for the airport.

DICK CLARK might have preserved his image as "America's Oldest Teenager" if he'd given up "New Year's Rockin' Eve" after the 2004 stroke that turned him, seemingly overnight, into an old man. But, then, he wouldn't have been Dick Clark. A producer and performer who was juggling multiple TV gigs long before his multitasking New Year's Eve co-host, Ryan Seacrest, was born, Clark, who died Wednesday at age 82, simply wasn't the retiring type. When I met him nearly 10 years ago on the set of NBC's "American Dreams," a show, set in early '60s Philadelphia, about a family whose daughter becomes a dancer on "American Bandstand," Clark was already 72. And though not quite as eerily youthful in person as he still appeared on-screen, he looked pretty good, even by Hollywood standards.

SHOULD HE maybe change his name to Ozzy OzBURN? Flames scorched Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne's English- country mansion yesterday morning, and not because Ozzy nodded off with a cigarette in his mouth. The Buckinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service blamed a faulty lamp. Neither the couple nor their children, Amy, Jack and Kelly, were home when the fire occurred. A member of the household staff was treated for smoke inhalation. The blaze caused minor fire and smoke damage to the mansion's entranceway.

Two years ago, audiences waiting to hear Spinal Tap commit such signature heavy-metal atrocities as "Clam Caravan" and "Christmas With the Devil" were presented with the oddest opening act. Three balding fogies in matching red-stripe shirts shuffled shyly onto the stage, introduced themselves as the Folksmen, and launched into the type of earnest acoustic music that hasn't...
