Who is this woman? That question was foremost in the mind of America's Best Female Distance Runner during the exciting final lap last night of the Penn Relays women's Olympic Development 5,000. ABFDR had been passed by Mystery Woman on the second turn of the bell lap. She then retook the lead and allowed MW to draw close. "I let her get next to me with 300 meters to go," ABFDR said. "I wanted to see who she was, and how serious she was . . . She kept steaming down the straightaway.

For Deborah Scullin, 33, a tall, willowy strawberry blonde whom the media have dubbed the "mystery woman" in City Councilman Leland M. Beloff's life, the events of the last two days have been more than a little overwhelming. "I want to get my side of the story out, and I'll be meeting soon with my attorney to discuss how to do that," Scullin said politely when contacted last night at her job behind the cosmetics counter of an upscale City Avenue store. "But right now, I don't want to talk about it. I don't have anything to say. It's bad enough already.

SEBASTIAN COE, the organizing chief of the London Games, says she was a cast member at the opening ceremonies "who clearly got slightly overexcited. "   Officials from India aren't buying it. During Friday's opening ceremonies, an unknown woman dressed in a red jacket marched with India's contingent of athletes and coaches. "Who's That Girl?" screamed the front page of The Hindustan Times, which we're guessing is India's answer to the People Paper. "Leaky London: Unaccounted presence in march past," read the headline in the Times of India.

She wore only pajama pants, a T-shirt and clogs on the night that the second-largest snowfall in Philadelphia history was beginning. State Police know how she died: She was killed running across six lanes of highway traffic near Philadelphia International Airport. But over the weekend, the mystery for State Police piled up as quickly as the snow had: Who was this woman, and why was she running across Interstate 95? Police said last night that the unidentified woman was not running to or from a broken-down vehicle, and that they found it difficult to determine what she could have been running to or from.

A late-night car accident, an up-and-coming young politician, rumors of a mystery woman along for the ride, a dead man, talk of a cover-up. It is the stuff that staggers political careers and stirs swirling rumors in the state capital. Harrisburg police are following a lead that two people were in a black Jeep involved in the July 27 hit-and-run accident that killed pedestrian Louis Cains. One, cops say, could be state Rep. Thomas W. Druce. The other - a mystery woman.

Will the mystery woman who watched three suspected car thieves at work in Middletown Township yesterday please call the police? They want to thank you. "She was great. . . . She was the key to everything," said a grateful Sgt. Pat McGinty, after three men were arrested and charged with car theft. It seems that the heroine and two children, in her car in the Oxford Valley Mall parking lot, saw three men break the left front window of a 1981 Oldsmobile station wagon. "They apparently sat there and watched these three guys steal this car," McGinty said.

It's not that the mother of slain Main Line lawyer Stefanie Rabinowitz doesn't have a few questions for the show's star - the topless dancer known as Summer. The woman Craig Rabinowitz never told her daughter about, the one he was willing to kill for. But she's already seen her act. She knows how good Summer is. "All those men over all those years, I believe that she is a natural actress.

A mystery woman began showing up in the courtroom during the "Young Guns" murder trial and making eyes at one of the defendants, Denovian "No No" Royster, he claims. Royster told his lawyer he didn't know the woman, but she started making eye contact with him and waving to him from the spectator seats, and eventually gave her phone number to his mother. He began to call her from prison. During one conversation, Royster said, his new friend put a woman juror on the phone. He said the juror asked him for $5,000 and she would fix the case.

Amid the jabs and jibes of the highly charged presidential debate Tuesday night, Mitt Romney kicked off a local mystery when he referenced a recent college graduate who is having trouble finding a full-time job. Who is the young Philadelphia-area woman who, like many in her generation, is having difficulty getting into the workforce, even after earning a college degree? Sources in the Romney campaign speculate that the unmentioned millennial generation woman may have met the candidate when he appeared for a rally at Valley Forge Military Academy in Wayne on Sept.

Neil Jordan's Ondine , full of melancholy and blarney, is set in one of those wee Irish fishing villages that belongs to another time - but then modernity intrudes. It's part of a fanciful subgenre: the mermaid movie (see Splash , see William Powell and Ann Blyth in Mr. Peabody and the Mermaid ), although the beautiful creature that Syracuse (Colin Farrell) pulls up in his trawler's net has limbs and toes instead of fins and scales, and seems to have little trouble breathing the fine misty air. She doesn't like being near people, though, so the hangdog fisherman hides her in a cottage tucked away in a cove.

A smart, sophisticated musical revue called Closer Than Ever opened Off-Broadway 20 years ago - and it's just as smart and sophisticated today, in the polished production at Bristol Riverside Theatre that marks its anniversary. Maybe it's because the subject matter, about the cycles that run through our lives, the pleasures and pains, are constants - and constantly germane. Falling or losing or staying in love. Parenting. Feeling like you're parenting your parents. Trying to do the right thing and figuring out what that might be. Doing the wrong thing and paying for it. Here we have Miss Byrd, efficient and proper at her office desk, and wild or wanting to be wild as soon as the office empties.

Hal Hartley's 1998 gem, Henry Fool, is about the tricky relationship between a garbageman poet and a blowhard stranger whose huge manuscript, scrawled in speckled composition notebooks, was "a philosophy . . . a literature of protest . . . a novel of ideas . . .a pornographic magazine of truly comic-book proportions. " In Fay Grim, Hartley's sequel, those same notebooks serve as the McGuffin - the thing that moves the plot, that everybody wants, that all the motion (and emotion)

I INTERVIEWED Ed Klein the other day. It never occurred to me NOT to speak with the author the controversial new book, "The Truth About Hillary. " Others are treating him like a life form somewhere below Kitty Kelley because of the incendiary nature of what he has written about the former first couple. As for me, I wanted to ask the man to defend his scurrilous innuendoes about the Clintons. Now that I have, I think I know the truth about Ed Klein. He doesn't have the goods.
