Parents and their allies fighting to keep open an elementary school in the Neshaminy School District in the midst of a contentious consolidation plan staged a protest Monday night that they say was aimed primarily at a crucial swing voter on the school board. Marty Sullivan, elected in November, has two children at Oliver Heckman Elementary School and says he is undecided about its fate, though he promised in the primary to fight the closing. "We know who our swing vote is, and we're pushing it hard," said Janice Lewis, the parent of a kindergartner and a fourth grader at the 400-student Bucks County school and a parent-teacher organization board member.

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.

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.

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 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.
