No, Cubby Davis is not a refugee from the Mouseketeers. Just ask his opponents on the football field, who find his antics neither zany nor comical. Davis, a senior quarterback, is the main reason that Juniata may be the team to beat in the Middle Atlantic Conference this year. He completed 169 of 326 passes for 2,161 yards last season, all school records, while also throwing 24 touchdowns, one short of the school mark. "He's a fine quarterback," said head coach Rob Ash. "I think he'll do a good job for us. " Juniata went 6-3 in the conference last season (7-3 overall)

FBI agents raided a Fairhill mental health clinic Monday, two months after a former employee sued, claiming she was fired for questioning what she described as fraudulent Medicaid billing. In April, Sheree Brown of Yeadon sued Juniata Community Mental Health Clinic, claiming its administrator, Sandy Acosta, and director, Carlos Matos, who is also a Democratic ward leader in Kensington, pushed her out of a job last year after she voiced her concerns. Federal authorities would not say whether their search of the practice, at 2637 N. Fifth St., was tied to Brown's allegations.

In 1986, the Juniata Golf Club Junior Camp made an auspicious debut. Heading the junior program was Jim Kealey, who had played golf for North Catholic from 1982 to 1985. Then 17 years old, Kealey had been looking forward to playing golf in college, possibly at North Carolina State, but mononucleosis tossed a three-putt in his plans. Instead, he accepted a job as an assistant pro at Juniata in 1985. N.C. State's loss had inadvertently provided a tremendous boost for junior golf in the Northeast.

The fire that ravaged St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Juniata Park Tuesday was deliberately set, police and fire officials said yesterday as police continued their search for a man who broke into the church last weekend and threatened the pastor. According to sources in the police and fire departments, the fire, which started on the first floor of the church building's adjoining hall, has been ruled arson. The four-alarm fire started before 1:30 a.m. and was brought under control at 3:42 a.m. It virtually destroyed the 109-year-old church and church hall at 3825 Kensington Ave. Three days before the fire, about 5:40 a.m. Saturday, the Rev. Thomas L. Reed, church pastor, confronted an intruder carrying a large hunting knife and chased him out of the church.

Purolite Co., which makes a product used in purifying water, plans to acquire a run-down toy factory in Juniata and transform it into the company's first full-scale manufacturing plant in the United States. The $6 million acquisition and automation planned for the former Sterling Models facility at 3620 G St. will create 75 new manufacturing jobs in the city, the company and Philadelphia development officials said late last week. It also is expected to produce more than $149,000 in city taxes and $300,000 in water and sewer fees annually and has the potential to generate additional traffic for the city's troubled port, the officials said.

THROUGHOUT their lives, Francis Arroyo protected his younger brother. That didn't change in his final moments. "He took the harder hit," Osvaldo Arroyo, 41, said last night on the front steps of his home on Luzerne Street near I Street in Juniata Park. "I'm suffering, having lost my brother right next to me. " The stoop overlooks the street where Francis, 43, an ice-cream-factory worker, lost his life late Sunday to a callous driver who Osvaldo believes targeted his family. "I don't think it was an accident, because of the way I was hit," Arroyo told the Daily News in Spanish.

When the letter from the Gates Foundation landed on Lawndale Street in April, Virginia "Ginny" Dennis and her son Brandon started screaming. "Is Miss Ginny OK?" a neighbor asked as they stepped out of their Juniata Park rowhouse. "Because we heard her hollering. " More than OK. Miss Ginny's son had just been awarded a full scholarship to both college and graduate school. He's going to Harvard. At 17, Brandon Dixon is used to defying the odds.

IF NOT FOR the yellow police tape cordoning off Malta Street and the firefighters washing blood from the walkway of a redbrick rowhouse, it would have looked like any other September afternoon in Juniata Park yesterday, with schoolkids in navy polos and khakis walking home and cars lining Hunting Park Avenue. But yesterday wasn't like any other day on the tidy block lined with a patchwork of lawns split by cement walkways. About 12:30 p.m., police said, a 42-year-old man in search of his estranged girlfriend went on a rage-fueled rampage outside a house, shooting her 21-year-old son and 40-year-old sister before putting a bullet into his own head.

NO ARGUMENT is worth shooting someone over. But four punks apparently thought it was a good idea to settle their beef by using gunfire late Saturday and sent three uninvolved passers-by to the hospital in the process, according to police. Last night, one of those victims, 25, was clinging to life at Temple University Hospital after one of the stray bullets struck him in the head. Meanwhile, investigators were pursuing a warrant for one of the suspects, who has a prior arrest for murder, according to a police source.
