I CAN'T change the channel without seeing the mug of ex-Montgomery County, Md., police chief-turned-author Charles A. Moose. First, it was "Dateline NBC. " The following morning, he chatted up "Today's" Matt Lauer. Next he's on CNN. Also scheduled on the publicity tour for Moose's new book on the sniper investigation: Jay Leno. I'm sure the victims' families will think it's a riot when Moose and Jay trade jokes about white trucks and tarot cards. Meanwhile, prosecutors in Virginia are hard at work preparing for the capital murder trials of accused snipers John Muhammad and Lee Malvo.

The moose in Anchorage may seem at ease strolling suburban streets, but science suggests these city moose live with twice the stress of their rural counterparts. What's more, a study examining the levels of stress hormones in moose poop concluded that moose in one part of Anchorage were the most anxiety-ridden of three groups studied in the city. The study was done by Martha Tomeo, then a graduate student at Alaska Pacific University. She measured levels of a stress hormone known as glucocorticoids in moose droppings collected the winter before last at five Alaska locations.

"It's mooseburger tonight," Mike Oakes said, rubbing his gloved hands together in the 20-below cold and giving one last shove to the rump of the dead moose hanging off the bed of his red pickup truck. Spinning his wheels on the ice-covered road, Oakes drove away from the railroad shack in Willow with enough meat, once butchered, to last a year, courtesy of the Alaska Railroad Corp. Oakes' gain was Alaska's loss - another moose, in a phenomenon blamed mostly on heavy accumulations of snow, refused to leave the tracks and was struck down by a freight train.

Norwegian Olympic hero and resident heartthrob Johann Olav Koss, who has thrilled spectators at these Games by winning three gold medals and setting three world records in the process, has a curious hobby. He's a moose rider. Upon hearing this, the Namskogen Family Park issued an open invitation to Norway's most celebrated athlete. "When we learned that Johann Olav Koss had ridden tame moose as a hobby, we immediately invited him to Namskogen," which is near Trondheim, said Turid Bredesen.

A MOOSE? ! Really? Is that the best the Sixers can do? We realize that question is asked plenty post-game, but we ask it after reviewing the three mascot choices the organization has come up with to replace "Hip Hop," the scary rabbit that had ruled since 1996. We get that a mascot isn't an easy decision: It's not just a cuddly representation of a team, but a symbol of how a team - and a city -perceives itself. It's also a chance to have fun, and that's what's missing from the bland and corporate offerings so far. (And hello?

They're back! Yes, the Winter Games, after a two-year hiatus, are returning, this time to Lillehammer, Norway, a tiny city with a population of 23,000 that is the smallest to host the Winter Games since Lake Placid in 1980. All of this leads us to the itty-bitty news notes that everyone wants to know: Like what words will we learn, who will be the winners and other sorts of tidbits that make these Games interesting. NEW WORDS A Norwegian vocabulary lesson: (You can't mind your P's and Q's in Norway, because the Norwegians don't use Q's. The W and X are also not found in regular usage.

The man's beard is covered with white froth as he shouts directions to the small, lean dogs pulling the sled. They are crossing not the frozen Yukon but a modern city street, and Anchorage police are stopping traffic to let them pass. Such a scene is what people often expect upon arriving in Alaska from Outside, as Alaskans call every place that is not Alaska. With their love of tall tales, Alaskans themselves enjoy teasing Outside friends and relatives with accounts of how they live in duplex igloos and eat whale-blubber sandwiches.

I had this date with Otto Haas, one of the heirs to the Rohm & Haas fortune, to talk about his horse - an old gelding named Alibi, that he gave to the Philadelphia mounted police years ago. We were to lunch in the executive dining room of the Pennsylvania Manufacturers Association Insurance Co., at 10th and Chestnut, but when I arrived at the offices of Frederick W. Anton 3d, the PMA president, Otto Haas' horse ended up on the back burner....

Moose - as he's known to his kids, his wife, his 92-year-old mother, even to President Bush - parks his Moose-mobile deep in the forest of Christmas trees. Rain has fallen all day, and now as dusk approaches, the fog rests like cotton on the hundreds of thousands of evergreens that cover Moose's 500-acre farm. All that's missing is a little snow, and Bing Crosby. Moose's two sons, Dave and Jeff, have been tagging, cutting, baling and loading trees since dawn. Usually by summer Moose knows where his trees are headed.

Over the years, I have eaten my share of venison and tasted game meats from caribou to impala to boar. So when I heard that my wife, Marianne's, grandmother was planning to roast a moose, I knew I had to wangle an invitation to broaden my experience. A few phone calls later, it was a done deal, and I began to wonder what it would taste like. Venison can be overpowering, no matter what you do to it, but the caribou I had in Quebec was sublime and the boar reminded me more of fine beef than pork.

In addition to his goal of leading Westtown to a Friends Schools League championship, Jared Nickens is preparing for his future career at Maryland. "I want to become stronger, find more ways to create my own shot, get better at coming off screens, and get to the foul line more," the 6-foot-6, 180-pound senior wing said. With Nickens making all eight of his free-throw attempts en route to 16 points, the visiting Moose nipped Academy of the New Church, 42-40, in overtime in an FSL showdown Tuesday in Bryn Athyn.

Seth Berger probably had to pinch himself - and more than once. In January, a man from Greece called Westtown and inquired about visiting the Quaker school with his then-15-year-old son and possibly enrolling him for the fall semester. The prospective student just happened to be Georgios Papagiannis, a 7-foot-1, 240-pound center who many, including Berger, believe could be a first-round selection - maybe even a lottery pick - in the 2016 NBA draft. Word spread in the spring that the wunderkind, who at 14 drew NBA scouts to a Greek Basket League game, was indeed coming to the United States.

It was about halfway through the season when Westtown coach Seth Berger had a heart-to-heart chat with Daniel Ochefu. "He told me that I needed to play with more intensity," the 6-foot-10, 240-pound center said. "As soon as the new year started, I began doing that. " In Friday night's Friends Schools League championship game vs. Academy of the New Church, Ochefu, playing with that renewed passion, sparked the Moose to a 55-46 victory at Haverford College.

"He hit an NBA-range three-pointer at the buzzer to give us a victory over Rutgers Prep," the Westtown coach said. "Since then, he's been on a big-time roll. His play has given us a major boost in the second half of the season.

THE BASEBALL CARD EXPO held at the Valley Forge Convention Center was supposed to be the highlight of my son, Sam's, year. Getting the autographs from his most admired players would have capped off an exciting season. After spending $425 for this bat-signing privilege, Sam nervously approached Ryan Howard, who then responded that, yes, he would sign his bat, but, no, he would not sign his glove. Shane Victorino was next. This time, Mr. Victorino reluctantly signed both, but not before his manager reprimanded Sam for asking for the additional autograph.
