When Vernon E. Jordan Jr. stood before microphones and cameras in a hotel ballroom last week and quoted the biblical admonition, "To whom much is given, much is required," some members of the vast Washington legal community chuckled and rolled their eyes. It seemed an unlikely explanation for why Jordan, power broker supreme and Clinton friend without peer, admitted to having helped a 24-year-old intern find a job. Not only because the former civil rights leader has been criticized by at least one prominent black leader for trading his previous career - and his principles - for a life of privilege.

Marple Township Commissioner Robert Jordan had gone to court expecting to face a jury of his peers on charges stemming from an altercation in the township building Jan. 15. Instead, the charges were dropped, apparently ending what Jordan's attorney, John M. Gallagher Jr., described as "this whole little mess. " Patricia Keates, president of the Marple Board of Commissioners, along with her husband, Robert, and library board member Maureen Muehsam dropped complaints charging Jordan with simple assault and terroristic threats just as Jordan's trial was scheduled to begin Monday in Delaware County Court, Media.

After Michael Jordan announced his comeback yesterday, the world of television shifted into overdrive. NBC, the NBA's primary network, immediately began to make changes to today's edition of The NBA on NBC to capitalize on the return of the man many call the greatest player to ever step on a basketball court. Ironically, NBC already had the game between the Chicago Bulls and the Indiana Pacers scheduled for noon today before Jordan made his decision to return to the Bulls.

When Michael Jordan walks away from basketball, at the end of this season or whenever, exactly what does the NBA lose? Its best player. Sellouts. TV ratings. Income. Charisma. All of the above. "We'd lose the only household name in basketball," said the Sixers' Scott Williams, who spent the first four seasons of his career as a teammate of Jordan with the Chicago Bulls. "People who don't know anything about basketball know him. " People who don't know anything else about the league know that Jordan, a free agent-to-be, has said he will return to the Bulls only under certain circumstances.

When Penncrest's Josh Jordan sets his mind on accomplishing something, it is a pretty good bet the cross-country runner is going to get the job done. At the Delaware County Championships at Rose Tree Park in Media, the junior kept repeating a simple, but powerful, message. "When I got there, I looked at everyone else and I said to myself 'I came here to win,' and I just kept repeating that to myself. " And win he did, posting a time of 16 minutes, 2 seconds, his best of the year and 30 seconds faster than his finish a year ago. "Josh just had it that day," Penncrest coach John Baker said.

The Chicago Bulls' Michael Jordan capped a season of honors yesterday by capturing the NBA's most valuable player award. He became the first player to win MVP and defensive player of the year honors the same season. But Jordan still has not reached his primary goal - bringing the NBA championship to Chicago. Jordan, who averaged 35.0 points per game to lead the league in scoring for the second consecutive season, was golfing in the Carolinas and could not even be reached by his own team to be congratulated, Krause said.

Only Michael Jordan, and only in Cleveland. Jordan did it to the Cavaliers and their fans again, hitting an 18-foot jumper at the buzzer last night to give the Washington Wizards a 93-92 win. Jordan victimized Cleveland throughout his career with the Chicago Bulls, and although he's now wearing a Washington jersey, No. 23 still has the Cavs' number. "Everybody in the place knew where the ball was going," Jordan said. "I've had some big shots in Cleveland, and they keep going in. " With 1.6 seconds left and Washington down, 92-91, Jordan got free on a defensive switch and calmly drained his jumper for the Wizards, who trailed by 12 points in the fourth quarter.

If Michael Jordan hits a home run and it's not on video, did it happen? The Birmingham Barons outfielder, whose career highlights so far have been filmed inside NBA arenas, hopes to find a videotape of his first professional home run. Jordan's homer at Hoover (Ala.) Stadium on Saturday came so late in the evening that local television photographers had already packed up. "It was the bottom of the eighth and a late night," said team spokesman Chris Pika. "We would like to have a copy of it, and I think Michael would, too. " So the Barons are trying to get the word out to anyone in the record crowd of 13,751 who might have had a camera running when Jordan hit his homer.

With Michael Jordan back in the Big Apple, this NBA labor talk thing was perceived to be growing serious. Perceptions, of course, have been known to disappoint. David Falk, agent of His Airness, did say Jordan wouldn't become involved again until he thought discussions aimed at breaking the five-month-old NBA labor stalemate reached a more serious stage. Jordan's silky touch didn't seem to have much effect yesterday, with no new proposals offered in meetings between league and union officials in New York that didn't end until nearly midnight.

When he heard the news that John Kruk had been signed for three years at $7.2 million, he had mixed feelings - understandably so. Basically, he was happy for his teammate. But he wasn't so happy for himself. As Ricky Jordan put it yesterday, "(Kruk) is a good player, and he deserves what he got. As you know, the guy can play some first base. People talk about Andres Galarraga and Will Clark, but I think he's one of the top three. He can hit and play defense. It's no surprise that they wanted to sign him. " But Jordan knows what this means for him: another season in limbo.

UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. - Roar. Roar. Roar. As Jordan Spieth ticked off the second leg of what has become his Grand Slam quest and Dustin Johnson added another chapter to his legacy of disappoinment, the largest grandstand in U.S. Open history hardly could have asked for better theater. Six thousand had seats to one of the more thrilling finishes in major championship history. Louie Oosthuizen posted a 4-under with a sweet birdie putt ( ROAR ) . . . right about the time Spieth drooped from 6-under to 4 with a double-bogey on 17. Spieth then launched his second shot to the par-5 18th, straight and true; it rolled onto the green, up the back slope and swept by the right edge, leaving him 15 feet for eagle and two putts for the lead ( ROAR )

JORDAN MATTHEWS was ticked. He had run the sideline pass route cleanly, but the ball arrived a little late and a little high, and by the time he jumped and extended all of his 6-3 frame to haul it in, a defensive back was upon him and there was no room to run. And thus, no first down. So, as Matthews ran from the field, the sound of his frustration carried out across the practice fields of the NovaCare Complex. Carried, literally, into the streets. "That's nothing," he said after the second day of minicamp had come to an end. "That's just competing.

St. John's announced Friday that Rysheed Jordan, who starred at Vaux High School and played two seasons for the Red Storm, has decided to pursue a professional basketball career. Jordan is ineligible for the NBA draft, so he will not be allowed to play in the league next season. But he is eligible to play in the NBA Development League or in another country's professional league. The 6-foot-4 guard and Philadelphia native averaged 12 points and three assists in 60 career games. "Playing professional basketball has always been a goal of mine.

Former Roberts Vaux High basketball standout Rysheed Jordan could be ruled academically ineligible to play for St. John's this fall, according to a report by the New York Daily News. The 6-foot-4 guard would be the team's leading returning scorer if he comes back for his junior season. He averaged 14.1 points and a team-high 3.1 assists last season. According to the report, there is a chance that Jordan will not return to the team at all, although he is expected to meet with new St. John's coach Chris Mullin soon.

At that moment of loss and mourning, says photographer and educator Denise Allen, the media place a microphone in front of these mothers so they can talk about their dead sons. Allen has created "My Son Matters!," a project on display at the Mt. Airy Art Garage until the end of May. Striking portraits of black mothers with their sons decorate the gallery.

DONALD SPIETH remembers making the trip from Bethlehem to Dallas to visit his son Shawn's family when his grandson Jordan, the oldest of three children, was around "10 or 12. " He was there at the same time the PGA Tour's AT&T Byron Nelson Golf Championship was being played, which was hardly coincidental. And it was then when he first became aware that Jordan could have some kind of a future swinging golf clubs. "I knew he was taking the sport seriously, playing a lot," the elder Spieth said.

He was the guy with the deep voice and the hideous blue plaid sports jacket; she was the woman with the large, empathetic eyes and easygoing manner. Lauren and Dennis were both 27, working for Beneficial Bank and living a freewheeling existence: Friday night happy hours, Saturday morning hangovers, their futures blissfully vague. "We both had severe cases of arrested development," Lauren says now. "We still felt so young. " They figured on living together in a few years and getting married sometime after that.

During summers in the 1960s, William J. Jordan took a break from teaching American history to South Jersey high school students and taught Revolutionary history to tourists in Philadelphia. The National Park Service gave him its uniform, its distinctive flat-brimmed hat, anointed him a seasonal park ranger, and assigned him to tours of Independence National Historical Park. "I know he loved that time in history," daughter Karen Jordan said. "He gave us all copies of the Constitution, his children," she said.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - Ben Crenshaw, a two-time Masters champion, played here for the final time this week, ending an emotional 4 decades-plus relationship. At his farewell pre-tournament press conference he was asked about fellow Texan Jordan Spieth, who's 42 years younger. His face couldn't have lit up more if you'd told him he'd just birdied the entire back nine. "I think the world of him," the man known as Gentle Ben marveled. "He's way more mature than I was at 21 . . . "You know, when I first met him, I tell you I'll never forget it. I looked right at him and he looked at me and I thought I was looking at Wyatt Earp.

The rocky cliff platform looked perilous from below, and even more perilous when I stood on it. My wife, Christina, my two teenage kids from a previous marriage, and I had arrived by cruise ship in Bermuda that morning - a happy occurrence as 48 hours earlier, we'd been expecting a trip north from New York to St. John, Newfoundland. Hurricane Arthur, however, had other plans, creeping up the East Coast early last July. Carnival Cruises made the eleventh-hour decision to take us southeast instead, ahead of the storm, to the pink sands of Bermuda.
