Brooklawn became the last remaining unbeaten team in American Legion Baseball's Mid-Atlantic Regional Tournament, busting open a scoreless game with nine runs in the fourth through sixth innings and crushing Middletown (Del.), 10-0, Saturday night. Brooklawn improved to 3-0 in the eight-team, double-elimination tournament at Boyertown's Bear Stadium. On Sunday, the South Jersey team will play South Charleston (W. Va.), which ousted Waldorf (Md.), 10-5, in Saturday's first game. Joe Brooks paced a nine-hit attack with two hits and an RBI, and Bill Mendek struck out nine and went the distance in the game, which was stopped in the seventh inning because of the 10-run rule.

The latest agreement between the Middletown and Lower Makefield supervisors may finally allow the Township Line Road extension from Yardley-Langhorne Road to Stony Hill Road to be completed. Earlier this week, the Middletown and Lower Makefield supervisors agreed on financing for the project. The Lower Makefield supervisors also agreed to keep part of Village Road open while the extension is constructed. The township had originally planned to close part of that road permanently before work was scheduled to begin.

In this land of the Oxford Valley Mall and the United Artists movie theater, of endless shopping centers and restaurants, a teenager skipping school might well spend a carefree day of truancy. But if Middletown supervisors vote tomorrow night to enact a daytime curfew, those days won't be so carefree. Anybody under 17 found in a public place during school hours would be subject to arrest, barring certain exceptions. Supporters say the ordinance would stem truancy and juvenile crime.

Candidates for the Board of Supervisors are gearing up for the final stretch of what is expected to be a close race. Four candidates are vying for two open seats on the board: Republicans Joseph J. Wenda and Richard V. Butville, and Democrats Diane Marseglia and Russell M. Kavana. Crime, taxes and land development are threads that run through each candidate's platform. All four said they would work to keep crime and taxes down while slowing land development. "I think that one of the things local government can do is to give people a sense of safety," said Marseglia, 34, a former Neshaminy school board member.

The Rose Tree Media School Board has appointed James R. Flandreau to fill a vacancy on the board. Flandreau, 38, of Middletown, was unanimously appointed last week to fill a vacancy created by the resignation of Penny Fox. Fox resigned to move to Texas. Flandreau is a partner in the Media law firm of Nilon, Paul & Mardinly. He taught in the English department of Penncrest High School from 1977 to 1980. "I'd like to do my part to help the district continue in its fine tradition," Flandreau said after the meeting last Thursday.

Tossing a tasty bone to the Middletown supervisors who supported his bid to build a huge housing development earlier this summer, local developer John McGrath agreed to help the township buy an environmentally important piece of land. McGrath will buy 25 wooded acres at the corner of Township Line and Big Oak Roads once owned by Joseph Saba by Dec. 31, then sell it to Middletown for the same price, about $800,000, within six months. McGrath bought an option on the property during the summer to prevent other developers from buying it, part of an earlier deal in which the township permitted him to begin building a 675-unit housing development on North Flowers Mill Road.

The Falls Township supervisors have reinvigorated a three-decade effort to gain membership on the board of directors of the Lower Bucks County Joint Municipal Authority. Last week, the Falls board instructed its solicitor to begin negotiating with the authority, which supplies water and provides sewage treatment to thousands of people in four Lower Bucks County municipalities: Bristol, Middletown and Falls Townships and Tullytown Borough. Bristol Township and Tullytown each appoint three members to the authority's board of directors.

This fall, Middletown teenagers thinking about skipping school will have one more reason not to - a new daytime curfew law that gives police more latitude to stop youths younger than 17 who look as if they should be in school. The supervisors voted unanimously Thursday night to adopt the curfew, making Middletown the eighth municipality in the county to do so. Bensalem, Bristol Borough, Bristol Township, Falls, Tullytown, Upper Southampton, and, most recently, Hulmeville have one. Before approving the curfew, Middletown supervisors added language to ensure that failure to pay the $300 fine or to perform community service would not result in an arrest warrant.

The five other boxers had already spoken on Friday afternoon before Amir Mansour grabbed the microphone and looked around the stage. "Everyone seems to have a story of their own about getting through obstacles," said the 41-year-old heavyweight at a news conference in Atlantic City. "And a lot of people that know my story know that I had a rough road to get to this point. " Undefeated in 19 fights with 14 knockouts, Mansour spent a combined 16 years and seven months in prison. Twice he derailed his career because of drug charges.

Ted Hood, 86, a yachtsman, yacht designer and builder, and sailmaker from Rhode Island who captained the winner of the 1974 America's Cup, died June 28 at a Middletown, R.I., nursing home. He had pneumonia and heart troubles, son Richard said. Considered an innovator, Mr. Hood founded Hood Sailmakers in 1955. His sails were used on all the winning America's Cup yachts from 1958 to 1977, including the Courageous, which he sailed to victory. Mr. Hood also founded Little Harbor Yachts and was elected to the America's Cup Hall of Fame and the National Sailing Hall of Fame.

Gene Allen figures most teams still playing in the boys' basketball tournament have one thing in common. "I bet most of them have a senior guard who is a team leader," said Allen, whose Atlantic City team clearly falls into that category. "It's so important at this stage. " On a team with height and depth, 5-foot-8 senior guard Martel Johnson might be the Vikings' most valuable player. He certainly is his coach's choice. "He's an extension of myself out on the court," said Allen, whose team will face North Jersey power Elizabeth in the Group 4 championship game at 5 p.m. Sunday at Rutgers University.

A 43-year-old Philadelphia man died Friday when his car crashed into an embankment along Route 1 in Middletown Township, Bucks County, police said. Investigators said they believed the man's Ford Explorer failed to negotiate a curve in the road just before 11 p.m. as he tried to exit the highway near Route 213. The SUV rolled over into the ditch, ejecting the driver and killing him. Police had not yet released the man's name. Authorities urge anyone who witnessed the accident to contact Middletown Township police at 215-750-3845.

THE PLAN, in the eyes of the development team, is to "transform the former Franklin Mint site into a vibrant, mixed-use, walkable community" that will "create a sense of place" for Middletown Township. Going by the tone of the hate mail circulating in the town of 16,000 residents, you'd think the proposal was for a Ground Zero mosque in the center of Delaware County. Civil dialogue appears to be breaking down in Middletown leading up to tomorrow's public hearing, when the developers - Pennrose Properties, the McKee Group, Wolfson Verrichia and the Dewey Cos. - will outline their plan to build homes, offices, retail space and a hotel on 173 acres along Baltimore Pike formerly occupied by the Franklin Mint.

Lawyers locked horns yesterday in a Bucks County courtroom over whether marijuana affected a Levittown man's driving, making him culpable for the death of a police officer. Whether Frank Wallace Budka Jr., 45, was impaired by combining pain medications he legally took with marijuana is at the center of the vehicular-homicide case before Common Pleas Court Judge Albert J. Cepparulo. In closing arguments, the prosecution insisted that trace amounts of marijuana detected in blood tests, plus Budka's slurred speech and disoriented behavior, painted a circumstantial picture of culpability.
