I'Javion Ivory's best pass was a from-the-hip, no-look assist to teammate DeAngelo Hilton that traveled all of four feet. Ivory's best shot was an eight-footer that settled softly in the net, a success that somehow silenced a home crowd still buzzing over his missed dunk on Pemberton's previous possession. "Quiet, please," would be an appropriate sign for Pemberton fans to hold up when Ivory goes about his business for the Hornets. A 6-foot-2 junior, Ivory didn't force a shot or make an ill-advised pass in the course of a fast-paced clash between archrivals Pemberton and Willingboro in a Burlington County League Patriot Division boys' basketball game on Thursday night.

A Montgomery County man was sentenced to 30 months in prison Wednesday for smuggling approximately one ton of elephant ivory into the United States from Africa. U.S. District Judge Kiyo A. Matsumoto, sitting in Brooklyn, N.Y., also ordered Victor Gordon, 71, of Penn Valley, to pay a $7,500 fine, forfeit $150,000 he was estimated to have made from selling ivory, and surrender the ivory that U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service agents seized from his African art store in Philadelphia. Authorities called it one of the largest U.S. seizures of elephant ivory.

IVORY OUT If you want to be in with the in crowd, don't buy things made of ivory. With the elephant just declared an endangered species, stores have stopped selling ivory, fashionable people no longer wear it and Vladimir Horowitz has agreed to tickle something other than ivory on his next Steinway piano. "I talk to jewelers every day, from Main Street to Fifth Avenue, and they all express abhorrence at selling ivory today," says David Federman, gemstone writer for Modern Jeweler magazine.

In James Ivory's masterful version of Howards End, a family gathers in the dining room of its country house for the reading of a will. Outraged by one of the document's provisions, they angrily burn the will in the fireplace. Letters from producers and directors who wished to film one of E.M. Forster's six novels invariably met with the same fate, flung into the fireplace of the author's small suite at Cambridge University's Kings College. Until his death in 1970, Forster lived as a revered fellow of Kings and the grand old man of English letters.

A SUNGLASSES-WEARING pastor, boisterous guest participation, a bride toting a tot along with her bouquet. Chances are, yesterday afternoon's wedding at City Hall was a first for those in attendance. Occupy Philly protesters Alicia Nauss, 24, and Adam Hill, 27, were married in the lower-level plaza outside City Hall, adjacent to the movement's encampment. The pair said their vows in front of family, friends, fellow protesters and anyone else who happened to be walking by. As Baptist minister and fellow occupier Michael Pierce spoke to the crowd, the spirited wedding guests hollered back his words, echo-style, presumably for folks watching on the upper level.

No one handles the big boys quite like Claudio's "King of Cheese," the Ninth Street stalwart where the provolones are bigger than some of the customers. It's the pure mass of those 120-pounders, though, which hang sentry in waxy ivory rows of giant "salami" near the front door, that gives this cheese its luster. After a year of dangle time, these gargantuas made in Cremona from rich winter milk take on a luminous tang and trademark texture, with fissures that break into age rings. All the easier to chunk for the extra-sharp holiday platter.

Few things warm a home more than the personal photos of the people who live there. Family vacations, weddings, anniversaries, graduations, new babies - all are events that deserve preservation and display. Ten years ago, people might have been reluctant to show personal photos in "public" areas of the home. But your favorite shots need no longer be confined to bedrooms or hallways. One reason for this change in attitude is that such displays can make a design statement. There always have been frames in just about every style of home decor; what's newsworthy is the variety of novel designs for displaying multiple shots.

Dear Polly: Do you have a recipe for a blueberry sauce to serve over pancakes or ice cream? - Vera Dear Vera: Try this easy sauce over cakes and puddings, too. You can use either fresh or frozen blueberries. Combine 1 pint fresh or frozen blueberries with 1/3 cup water, 1/2 cup sugar and 1 tablespoon cornstarch. Heat to boiling, stirring frequently, until thickened. Cook two minutes more, stirring occasionally. Stir in 1 tablespoon lemon juice. Serve warm or chilled. This makes about 1 3/4 cup sauce.

Israeli president cautious on Iran JERUSALEM - Shimon Peres, Israel's president and elder statesman, spoke out Thursday against the prospect of a lone Israeli military strike on Iran's nuclear facilities, a message that contradicts the hawkish, go-it-alone line emanating from the offices of Israel's prime minister and defense minister. The president's comments came amid a wave of speculation in Israel and abroad that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his defense minister, Ehud Barak, might be weighing the option of a unilateral strike even before the U.S. presidential election in November, while Israel's limited military capabilities might still have an impact.

DESCRIBING a movie as a history lesson is often a way of belittling it. Here's an exception: "Belle," based on the true story of Dido Elizabeth Belle (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), an 18th-century Anglo-African woman fathered by a British aristocrat, brought back to his ancestral estate and raised to receive some, but not all, of the privileges her bloodline confers. Though raised and educated as an elite, she faces prejudice brought on by the circumstances of her birth and also her mixed-race lineage - Belle comes of age in British society at a time when the issue of slavery is hotly debated.

Gov. Christie signed into law Tuesday a ban on ivory trafficking - targeting an activity enabled by New Jersey's ports, advocates of the crackdown say. The law, which sets penalties for importing, selling, or purchasing any ivory or rhinoceros horn product, is one of the first in the country, according to Christie's office. While sponsors say the ban is designed to protect wildlife, they say it has an additional purpose: cutting off a source of terrorist funding. In announcing new efforts last year to combat elephant poaching, former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton drew a link between terrorist groups in Africa and ivory trafficking, according to news reports.

ABIDJAN, Ivory Coast - Survivors of a stampede in Ivory Coast that killed 61 people, most of them children and teenagers, after a New Year's Eve fireworks display said Wednesday that makeshift barricades stopped them from moving along a main boulevard, causing the crush of people. Ivory Coast police said that unknown people put tree trunks across the Boulevard de la Republique where the trampling took place. "For security, because there were so many important people at the event, we closed certain main streets," said a police officer who was overheard briefing Ivory Coast President Alassane Outtara on the incident.

ABIDJAN, Ivory Coast - A crowd stampeded after leaving a New Year's fireworks show early Tuesday in Ivory Coast's main city, killing 61 people - many of them children and teenagers - and injuring more than 200, rescue workers said. Thousands had gathered at the Felix Houphouet-Boigny Stadium in Abidjan's Plateau district to see the fireworks. It was only the second New Year's Eve fireworks display since peace returned to this West African nation after a bloody upheaval over presidential elections put the nation on the brink of civil war and turned this city into a battle zone.

New Year's Day remains a popular day for auctions, with more than a half-dozen scheduled within a 60-mile radius of Philadelphia. As usual, however, they tend to be recreational events, catering more to the impulse bidder than to no-nonsense acquirers such as dealers. Stephenson's, for instance, one of the most established New Year's Day auctioneers, will offer costume jewelry, small porcelain collectibles, Asian and Japanese arts, contemporary furniture, some paintings, and miscellany, such as a 1942 U.S. Navy spyglass.

ABIDJAN, Ivory Coast - The victims were rounded up at their homes, at work or while out having drinks. Taken without explanation to military camps overflowing with prisoners, they were deprived of food and beaten routinely with belts, clubs and guns and released only after their families paid substantial sums of money. A report issued Monday by New York-based Human Rights Watch accuses Ivory Coast's military of undertaking a swift, brutal, and illegal campaign of arbitrary arrest and detention in response to some of the most significant violence since last year's election crisis.
