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.
