Four false starts and a lack of competition kept world champion Maurice Greene far off the world record but didn't stop him from winning the 100 meters at the Milan track and field meet last night. Greene clocked 10.16 seconds, beating Nigeria's Innocent Asonze, runner-up at 10.27. Greene, ranked No. 1 in the world last year, was .32 seconds off the world mark of 9.84 held by Canadian Donovan Bailey. "I'm not obsessed with the world record," said Greene, who blamed the series of false starts for a lack of concentration and for failing to clock a faster time.

Embattled Camden Mayor Milton Milan took another hit in Federal Court yesterday when a former city prosecutor said he helped Milan pull off a $5,000 political shakedown in 1997. Former Camden Municipal Prosecutor Joseph S. Caruso admitted helping Milan squeeze the cash from then Camden municipal defender Elliot S. Stomel in exchange for Stomel's reappointment by Milan. As part of his plea-bargain, Caruso pleaded guilty to conspiracy before U.S. District Judge Stephen M. Orlofsky to avoid an extortion trial.

Kirk Schulz passed for two touchdowns and led a pair of third-quarter drives that gave Villanova a 28-25 victory over Rhode Island yesterday in the first college football game played in Italy. The victory was the fifth in a row for the Wildcats (6-2), and it guaranteed them a winning season. They have not finished below .500 since reinstating football in 1985. Rhode Island fell to 2-6 with its fourth straight loss. "We knew we'd have a real tough game, because for Rhode Island, they're not contenders in the conference and this was a bowl game for them," Villanova coach Andy Talley said.

While Camden Mayor Milton Milan's future sits in the hands of a federal jury, some business and political leaders in Camden believe the future of the city itself remains squarely in the hands of the people who live and work there. Folks like John DiNaso, who opened DiNaso and Son Building Supply Co. on Mount Ephraim Avenue about six months ago. The business, which employs about 30 people, opened while the federal government was still conducting its intensive and highly publicized drug and corruption investigation against Milan, the city's first Hispanic mayor.

Would Camden Mayor Milton Milan take advantage of a needy young college student from his old neighborhood by charging him $1,500 for a "stolen" computer that was worth only $500? That's the question prosecutors raised yesterday at Milan's corruption trial, just before announcing that they would call no further witnesses and would rest their case today. Milan, 38, the impoverished city's first Hispanic mayor, has denied any wrongdoing, but has opted not to testify in his own defense.

AS Roma made itself at home in Philadelphia this past week while Inter Milan camped in Washington. The Giallorossi climbed the Art Museum steps and posed like Rocky. They held semisecret training sessions just off the Schuylkill Expressway at Penn's Rhodes Field. Charismatic manager Rudi Garcia held court at the Ritz- Carlton. The home advantage, however, did not extend to game day. Inter spoiled the party with a 2-0 victory in front of 12,169 at Lincoln Financial Field. The barnstorming clubs from Italy's Serie A met as part of the International Champions Cup. Both teams were eliminated from the tournament later in the day when Manchester United beat Real Madrid.

MILAN - Silvio Berlusconi's private disco featured not only aspiring showgirls performing striptease acts as sexy nuns and nurses, but also one woman dressed up as President Obama and a prominent Milan prosecutor, whom the billionaire media mogul has accused of persecuting him, according to the first public sworn testimony by the Moroccan woman at the center of the scandal. Karima el-Mahroug's testimony Friday at the trial of three former Berlusconi aides accused of procuring her and other women for prostitution confirms a sexually charged atmosphere at the "bunga bunga" parties of the then-sitting premier.

ROME - Thousands of supporters of former Premier Silvio Berlusconi rallied in a northern Italian city Saturday to protest the media mogul's recent conviction by a Milan appeals court for tax fraud, cheering their hero as police in riot gear separated them from jeering opponents. The backers turned out for the "Everyone for Silvio" rally by his Freedom People party in a square outside the cathedral in Brescia, a small industrial city that is a bastion of the conservative leader's political support.

MARIO BALOTELLI, the gifted-yet-troubled soccer star for AC Milan, has a penchant for doing stupid things. This weekend, he was cited for smoking a cigarette in the bathroom of an Italian train, which was carrying his AC Milan squad to face Fiorentina on Sunday. Club vice president Adriano Galliani said Balotelli will be fined. Balotelli was really ticked off when he heard that the train's ticket collector, who caught him smoking, told Galliani, "You need to pull his ears. He was smoking in the bathroom," Gazzetta dello Sport reported.

Gangster clich├ęs fly like submachine-gun bullets in the Italian crime biopic Angel of Evil, a restless and hollow rundown of '70s criminal Renato Vallanzasca (Kim Rossi Stuart). The Milan mobster robbed, kidnapped, and terrorized with a pitiless conviction ("I was born to be a thief," his narration tells us), which earned him a media-friendly cult status all over Italy. But even sporting a centralized figure drawn from a real-life, seesaw reign of lawlessness, notoriety, and multiple incarcerations - keeping track of the different prison settings alone is its own story-comprehension battle - director/co-writer Michele Placido prefers quick-n-easy bites of rock-scored ruthlessness and gang-loyalty sentimentality.

Before polls even closed in Tuesday's primaries - with no surprise winners in Camden City Council races - a fresh face with a recognizable name emerged as an independent contender for a Council seat. Milton Milan Jr., 24, son of former Mayor Milton Milan, who served more than six years in federal prison on corruption charges, jumped into the race just before the 4 p.m. deadline to qualify as a candidate in the November elections. The younger Milan will challenge Clyde E. Cook, the Republican candidate, and current Council President Frank Moran for his father's old seat in Ward 3. Moran won the seat in 1997 in a special election to replace the elder Milan when he became mayor.
