The Ardmore Manor American Legion baseball team got good and dirty Sunday. And that was just fine with coach Paul Bogosian. The Manor celebrated its 6-1 victory over Wayne by practicing belly-flops down the side of a muddy hill next to the Wayne field after a thunderstorm hit the area. It was just schoolboy fun for late adolescents, but it proved to Bogosian how much camaraderie his undefeated team has. "They were playing like little kids splashing around in the puddles," Bogosian said.

No African head wrap or oversize Afro for Erykah Badu on New Year's Eve: the Dallas funk-soul diva shuffled onstage at the House of Blues in Atlantic City in full flapper regalia, as if walking straight out of the Harlem Renaissance. Bundled in an overcoat and peering from under a broad-brimmed hat, Badu put down her overnight bag and thermos full of "sugar water" and locked into a laid-back groove, singing: "I came to hear the band today/I ain't thinking about you/I came to hear my drummer play.

Linda Wright Moore's column (Dec. 8) on black women's natural hair was very encouraging. I started my natural locks just before the Million Woman March in Philadelphia in October 1997. "Locks" is the popular term for natural hair sectioned and twisted. "Everything You Need to Know About Hairlocking" by Nekheria Evans gives information on the spiritual and historical nature of locks. Coily hair, she writes, clearly distinguishes people of African ancestry from all others. "Dreadlocks" relates specifically to a way of life that is known as Rastafarianism.

Gloucester County Jail inmates have caused security problems at the Woodbury prison by devising a way to dismantle electrical cell-door locks with a ballpoint pen. The broken locks have prompted the jail to bypass fire laws and install deadbolts on about a dozen of the cells. The deadbolts would need to be opened manually in case of a fire, said Sheriff James N. Hogan. The electrical locks are opened automatically by one switch in control rooms located outside the cells. The problem was caused in recent weeks by inmates who have sabotaged 30 of the jail's 200 cell doors with a procedure that Hogan said could take less than three minutes.

Gov. Whitman signed legislation into law yesterday that will require every handgun sold in the state to come equipped with a trigger lock or lock box - making New Jersey one of only four states requiring the devices. "Trigger locks are designed to prevent the accidental discharge of a loaded handgun," Whitman said during a signing ceremony in her outer office. She was flanked by legislators who sponsored the bill in both houses. "By adding this safety device to handguns, responsible gun owners can help ensure that their guns are not used by irresponsible parties - especially by children, whose curiosity often exceeds their judgment, with tragic results," she said.

Many of Pennsylvania's - and America's - locks and dams are on the brink of failure, according to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the agency charged with maintaining them. Conditions along the nation's 11,000-mile inland waterway system constitute "a crisis headed for a catastrophe," one high-ranking corps official said last month at an industry meeting in Washington. The precarious status of the waterway system stems from what government and industry officials agree is a broken method of maintaining and replacing aging locks and dams.

Darby Mayor Paula Brown locked herself in her office yesterday after the Borough Council tried to change the locks. She remained there last night as about a half-dozen supporters marched outside the Borough Hall. President Janice Davis, a member of the council faction that opposes Brown, said she told Brown weeks ago that the Police Department needed more space and that council members wanted Brown to move into another office in the borough's Resource Center on Ninth Street. Davis said she told Brown she had until yesterday to move.

WE'RE NOT interested in stirring up controversy. We're not interested in starting arguments. We are interested in producing and delivering clean, safe water and protecting lives and property.

WASHINGTON - President Obama signed into law a catchall government-funding bill that ends the 2013 budget fight and locks in $85 billion in budget cuts the president opposes. With Obama's signature, day-to-day operations of cabinet departments and federal agencies will continue without interruption through Sept. 30, the end of the fiscal year. With the automatic cuts known as sequestration, the spending will amount to about $984 billion. The previous funding authorization had been due to expire Wednesday.

For the owner of Lestardo's bar and package store in Bear, Del., the last call early Saturday was one her customers never heard. Avon Lestardo, 61, called and called for hours from the trunk of her car, where she had been left by a robber who had been awaiting her return home shortly after 2:30 a.m. The robber, wearing a Halloween-type mask, forced Lestardo into the trunk after a struggle, police said. New Castle County police said Thomas P. Pendergast of the first block of Cornwall Drive, New Castle, had been waiting when Lestardo pulled into her garage at her home near Newark, carrying about $48,000 in cash, checks and Delaware lottery receipts.

Anything you put in my mouth you're going to lose. - Andy Dufresne   If you have seen the movie The Shawshank Redemption , you may remember that line from the scene in which the character played by Tim Robbins is about to become the victim of a brutal prison assault. The film's narrator says it was the first of many assaults to come. That fiction is an unfortunate truth for prison and jail inmates across America. President Obama acknowledged the horrible reality Tuesday in addressing the 106th annual convention of the NAACP in Philadelphia.

Photos surfaced online yesterday of the Hollywood heart throb and the Russian model coyly ducking and dodging paparazzi as they got into a cab in London's Mayfair section.

HARRISBURG - Speed-enforcement cameras and alcohol-triggered ignition locks are getting serious consideration in the Pennsylvania legislature, and inaction by Congress threatens statewide highway projects, state transportation officials said Tuesday. Acting Transportation Secretary Leslie S. Richards and Republican and Democratic leaders of the House Transportation Committee told business and transit executives that Washington gridlock could undermine funding boosts approved by state lawmakers in 2013.

So Kentucky is going to win this thing? Not so fast. Say the Wildcats end up with a path that includes Cincinnati, Maryland, and then Kansas or Notre Dame just to get to the Final Four. UK obviously is the favorite each time, but that's a little bit of a gauntlet, with differing styles and plenty of talent. Notre Dame obviously is the kind of offensive team that could make things interesting for Kentucky if the Irish make it to the Elite Eight game in Cleveland. If Kansas was the last No. 2 seed, it makes sense that Notre Dame would be the top No. 3 after winning the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament.

LAST WEEK, Gov. Wolf announced a moratorium on the death penalty in Pennsylvania. He cited as reasons a system riddled with flaws, and said that the penalty is expensive and often applied unfairly. Wolf's move is to be lauded. The only thing we disagree with is his call for a task-force report on the state's death penalty. Another report? There are numerous reports and studies on the subject of the death penalty in general and in Pennsylvania in particular. For example, as recently as 2007, the American Bar Association released the results of a four-year Death Penalty Assessment project it conducted for eight states, including Pennsylvania.

TRENTON - New Jersey senators voted Thursday to change the penalties for drunken driving, requiring all first-time DWI offenders to install Breathalyzer-like devices in their vehicles in lieu of lengthy suspensions of their licenses. The legislation was praised by the safety group Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), which said New Jersey would become the 25th state to require first-time DWI offenders to install ignition-interlock devices. The bill, which passed the Senate, 29-4, on Thursday and was approved, 46-15 with 14 abstentions, in the Assembly in June, now heads to Gov. Christie.

RENTING HOTEL rooms by the hour in Philadelphia may soon be a fling of the past if two bills designed to combat human sex trafficking become law. The bills, co-sponsored by Councilman Ed Neilson and Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds Brown, were introduced yesterday during Council's regular meeting. Hearings on the bills have not yet been scheduled. "Hotels and motels offering hourly rates raise a big red flag for those of us who care that this type of inappropriate activity is happening," Brown said.

The majority of us spend a lot of time (and money) to get rid of gray with high-powered weapons such as the get-it-golden double process and make-it-brunette balayage. But the winds of change are coloring the most stylish of women's tresses silver. The trendlet Yes, it's true. Women are paying stylists top dollar to have their inverted, shoulder-length bobs and short spikey-dos colored a perfect gray to silver ombre. (Much like bleach blondes, the first step is to strip the pigment, and then stylists apply a permanent gray dye. You can add a semipermanent rinse for a pastel effect.)
