NINE-YEAR-OLD Tommy "TJ" Ramos doesn't have a broken heart, his ticker just marches to its own beat - like Dallas Stars hockey player Rich Peverley's heart. Luckily, both guys - who have the same genetic heart condition called CPVT - were surrounded by their teammates and quick-thinking men with CPR skills when their irregular heartbeats led to sudden cardiac arrests during sporting events. TJ, a Philly kid who plays baseball and hockey, got a chance to meet Peverley's teammates yesterday morning before their game against the Flyers.

THE LAST several days in the Eagles' locker room, there has been a lot of talk about the importance of tonight's final preseason game, against the visiting Jets. It isn't important to the starters, who won't be playing, or to the key reserves, who if they have to play tonight, can only hope not to get hurt, 10 days before the season opener. But it is important to the guys on the roster bubble, as the cutdown from 75 to 53 by Saturday looms large, and to the ones who have little hope of making the Eagles.

"My parents were immigrants, and my father worked in a factory. That's why I appreciate Temple's populist mission so much," George Edberg-Olson said in 2000. "I'm not a wealthy man, but clearly Temple University enabled me to progress in my life. " The occasion was the 2000 opening of Edberg-Olson Hall, Temple's football training headquarters at 11th and Diamond Streets, for which he contributed $1 million of the estimated $7 million construction cost. On Monday, Dr. Edberg-Olson, 84, a former professor of Spanish at Temple, died of complications from Alzheimer's disease at the Artman Lutheran Home in Ambler, where he had resided for the last five years.

A zoning dispute over whether a two-story locker room at 8900 Hawthorn Lane can be used as a classroom was left unsettled by the Springfield Zoning Hearing Board this week. The property is owned by Michael Singer of Lower Merion and has been leased to La Petit Enfant Day Care since September. The day care center operates out of a classroom building on the property. Day care officials have sought to expand into the two-story building, which is behind the classroom building.

IT'S THE TIME of year when gyms are packed with fitness enthusiasts working hard to stay in summer shape. And while it's great to see people embracing an active lifestyle, what isn't always great is their gym etiquette. Apparently, some have lost their manners along with their love handles. These are the 12 categories of gymgoers that I consider to be the dirty dozen of locker-room louts. Some of what they do is gross, some just rude. It would be better if everyone remembered that one Golden Rule, both in and out of the gym. 1 EQUIPMENT HOGS They "hold" an elliptical machine or a spin bike for a friend who's not there yet. Or they put clothing or water bottles on equipment to "save" it for their next set. Can you say "selfish"?

RE SOLOMON Jones' column on Ines Sainz: Great article. I couldn't agree more. Women have every right to be in a locker room, however, there has to be some professionalism on their part. I have seen too many pictures of this particular reporter wearing tight jeans and half shirts. She looks great, but this isn't a fashion show. Keep up the good work - I look forward to reading more.

Episcopal Academy's offense, or what there was of it Friday, was trying to get downfield for a touchdown. No matter. It was so dark by that time of the late afternoon that it was hard to see the football anyhow. And the Churchmen's first loss of the season, a 23-10 defeat at the hands of Penn Charter, was already assured. "They punished us; they deserved to win," said Episcopal quarterback Mike Abate, who completed only 4 of 12 passes and was constanly running away from Penn Charter pressure.

Whether a two-story building at 8900 Hawthorne Lane can be used as a classroom - a question that created a stir four years ago - is once again at issue in a Springfield Township zoning dispute. The building is at the rear of the property near two swimming pools on a lot owned by Michael Singer of Lower Merion. A larger building on the lot is used as a day-care center, and Singer's tenant, La Petit Enfant Day Care, wants to use the disputed building for a classroom. But the township and neighboring residents say it should be used only as a locker room.
