Mansfield quarterback Bill Bair can remember the days when high school rivalries meant everything, when friendships were either formed or outlawed because of colors on a letter jacket. But the 1989 Ridley High graduate has broadened his outlook a bit, now that his two starting wide receivers are graduates of Ridley's two most bitter Delaware County rivals. George Zagame, who shares a dormitory room with Bair this year, came out of neighboring Interboro High, and John Miller, Mansfield's top receiver, is from another school just a couple of miles away, Springfield High.

Appellate judges yesterday affirmed Superior Court Judge Myron Gottlieb's Wednesday decision to allow the dumping of contaminated soil at a landfill here. In a lawsuit, township attorneys sought to stop the county and the state Department of Environmental Protection from dumping about 1,000 truckloads of pesticide-tainted soil from Burlington Township. Since Aug. 5, workers have been carting the soil away from the Burlington Heights and Sunset Ridge housing developments in Burlington Township.

The state's Department of Environmental Protection has granted two new permits to build a new Burlington County sludge-treatment plant, despite continuing opposition from Mansfield residents, officials said yesterday. Mary Pat Robbie, the county's management specialist for environmental issues, said the permits, which approved the sludge facility's general design and pollution control system, arrived last week. With approval from other state agencies expected later this week, Robbie said construction of the co-composting plant could begin this month.

Mansfield had given up four sacks going into Saturday's game against West Chester, but defensive tackle Jason Swint and his teammates trashed that statistic and the Mansfield offense in a 24-8 Golden Rams win. Swint, a junior, registered two of West Chester's five sacks. West Chester gave up only 42 rushing yards and 194 total yards. The 6-foot, 260-pound Swint has made a number of big plays recently. He returned an interception 20 yards for a score in a 36-36 tie with New Haven on Oct. 7. "He's quick off the ball," West Chester coach Rick Daniels said.

Calton Homes withdrew its planning board application for 181 homes last night after township attorneys advised the board to throw out a preliminary approval. Without discussion, the nine-member board unanimously approved the withdrawal. Overcome by rapid development and its related costs, including two new schools, Mansfield has become more cautious in approving projects in recent years. Last night's action was a sign of that. The number of homes in the township has tripled during a 20-year building boom.

They're calling it the "Oprah Winfrey Bowl" at Cheyney University. Cheyney is 0-9 and riding a 45-game losing streak. Mansfield, which hosts the Wolves at 1 p.m. Saturday, also is 0-9. Hence, the reference to a talk-show host whose first name starts with a letter that sums up the futility of the combatants' seasons. "It's the game of the year," Mountaineers sports information director Steve McCloskey said. "You're talking about two programs with zero wins. You're talking about intensity.

Is it tougher being a hit man in Philadelphia than in New York? Giuseppe Gallara thinks so. The 30-year-old convicted killer yesterday was slapped with consecutive life prison terms without parole - the price of mob membership in Philadelphia. U.S. District Judge Ronald L. Buckwalter punished Gallara for the Sept. 17, 1993 murder of mob associate Frank Baldino outside the Melrose Diner. Gallara and mob hit man John Veasey sidled up to Baldino's white Cadillac and pumped the associate of rival mobster Joseph "Skinny Joey" Merlino full of bullets during a mob war. Of the six slugs that hit Baldino, four came from Gallara's 9-mm pistol.

Do three bottles of Amaretto, four cans of black gunpowder and a math quiz equal a belly laugh?

A defense attorney for mob associate John "Johnny Gons" Casasanto yesterday suggested that growing up in South Philadelphia was the reason his 28-year-old client became an extortionist and would-be triggerman for the Mafia. But U.S. District Judge Ronald. L. Buckwalter didn't buy it. "I am not a native of South Philadelphia," the judge said. "But there are many good citizens who live there . . . There are temptations of youth that seem flashy and exciting. Most young men and women don't allow themselves to be involved in that.
