His stage name may bring to mind some old-fashioned slinger of grizzled blues, but Langhorne Slim's songs actually tend toward exuberant folk-pop. The Bucks County native and current Brooklynite - born Sean Scolnick - doesn't understand why his records are sometimes described as backwoods oddities. "[I'm] often surprised at how my music is described," Slim says. "Some of it seems ridiculous to me, but you have no control over it. I really don't put a tag on the music we do. " 'We' means Langhorne Slim and the War Eagles, which includes the bouncy two-piece backing band (Paul Defiglia on upright bass and Malachi DeLorenzo on drums)

A lanky young man in a white T-shirt and jeans walked past Crystal Langhorne yesterday as she stood outside the Washington Mystics' locker room at the Verizon Center. Kevin Durant, a Texas Rangers hat completing the outfit, touched Langhorne's shoulder in acknowledgment. Langhorne, talking about how she could earn more playing time, paused and nodded hello. It was a subtle exchange. Durant, the NBA rookie of the year for the Seattle SuperSonics this season, continued through the hallway.

Ever since Lisa Pflaumer answered her husband's call from Baghdad to collect donations for the Iraqi people, life has been "wonderfully crazy. " The kitchen and living room of her Langhorne home have been filled with boxes of clothes, shoes, toys, baby formula, nutritional drinks, bottles and vitamins - all items desperately needed by poor children and adults. And more donations are coming in all the time. The dropoff point at the Middletown Township municipal building, where she serves as chairwoman of the Board of Supervisors, was overflowing this week.

On a recent Saturday, about a dozen sharply dressed Main Line parents sat on one side of a long, narrow banquet table, facing a line of college-casual young women (and one young man) who were selling their services as baby-sitters. After five minutes of interaction, a bell rang, and each parent moved down one chair to the next sitter-in-waiting, notebook in hand. Other parents stood in line for a free seat, munching pizza as they waited. Those who brought kids had already released them to an impromptu play group - the organizers had thought of everything.

Tossed haphazardly along the narrow path to Stephen Perloff's computer are brochures, letters, envelopes, postcards and folders. Mounds of clutter rise around, under, and on his desk. "I'm beyond knowing where everything is," said the man who has devoted decades to giving voice to trends and happenings in the photography world. "I just don't have enough time. We're always in production," added Perloff, 58, editor of the monthly Photograph Collector, quarterly Photo Review, and Photo Review newsletter, published eight times a year.

Two years ago, Willingboro's Crystal Langhorne and Elkins Park's Laura Harper decided that Maryland was the place to win NCAA titles. It was an intriguing choice at the time because the Terrapins, under first-year coach Brenda Frese, were suffering through a 10-18 season. Both, however, saw themselves as part of a bright future for the program. On Tuesday night, their vision became a reality as Maryland claimed its first-ever NCAA title with a 78-75 overtime upset victory against Atlantic Coast Conference rival Duke.

The one-two punch of Cheltenham High's Laura Harper and Willingboro High's Crystal Langhorne helped produce a stunning 81-70 knockout by Maryland over North Carolina last night in an NCAA tournament national semifinal at the TD Banknorth Garden. Although Langhorne, a 6-foot-2 sophomore forward, had attracted the most attention of the pair during the season, it was Harper's effort last night that stood out as the Terrapins (33-4) finished off their Atlantic Coast Conference rivals at the Women's Final Four.
