RE CHRISTINE Flowers' op-ed on the New Jersey gay-marriage decision: Her article was right on. I wonder how many people, when they go to vote, actually take the time to do background checks on the judges they vote for? The liberal-left judicial branch of federal, state and even local jurisdictions is attempting to force their interpretations and agendas on all of us - whether we like it or not. As an ex-public official, I've lived this. Unfortunately, people are too stupid or lazy to realize that it's happening.

Q: I've had a fungus infection of the large toes for at least 14 years. All efforts, topical and internal, have failed to kill it. My doctor says he can only slow the infection down, but cannot cure it. Any advice? A: Try griseofulvin (Fulvicin), a prescription oral anti-fungus remedy. You would have to take it for several months to eradicate the yeast, particularly in the nailbed. As an alternative, buy herbal La-Pacho tea (in health food stores or supermarkets), steep it and soak your feet in it twice a day. Q: What cause nocturnal leg cramps, and what can be done for them?

The cops who stopped a van in Montgomery County in January 1987 got a surprise when they opened a 55-gallon drum and found a body stuffed inside. The body was that of German Arrango Vargas, 32, who had made the mistake of annoying a gang of North Philadelphia drug peddlers, police said. Vargas' end was not pleasant, according to testimony yesterday by Ramon Santiago, a gang member who is cooperating with authorities. On Jan. 9, 1987, the day before the murder, Santiago said, Vargas, whom the gang members suspected of cheating them, was tied up and left next to nine bulldogs on the second floor of a garage on Marshall Street near Cambria.

Fred Wilson, 31, made a hit recording in 1995, but he didn't get to hear it until he got to a courtroom. That's because it was a secret tape recording made by a police informant in which Wilson admits he sent two hit men to the West Oak Lane home of a building contractor to rob and kill him on Oct. 4, 1996, said Assistant District Attorney Edward McCann. On the tape, Wilson calls the slayers of Benjamin Milla, 40, of Fayette Street near Washington Lane, "cold-blooded killers," men who "make sure" they finish off their victims, because "that's the way they work.

If you had asked Jade Starling what "The Beautyworx" was five years ago, she probably would have shrugged her shoulders. But today, the lead singer of the local pop band Pretty Poison will tell you that that it's the only place she'll go to have her trademark nails done. That, said Starling, 28, is because the only person she trusts to do the elaborate airbrush artwork on her nails is Lois Burak, owner of the Beautyworx. It's a perfect match - a musician who wanted to be a beautician seeking out a beautician who wanted to be a musician.

Cutting a pet's nails is a task detested by even the most experienced animal owners. Dogs and cats will fight like tigers to avoid it, but it is a necessary task. Neglected nails can grow painfully into the pet's footpad. They can also ruin your carpets, furniture and curtains. Train the pet to accept nail-clipping as you would brushing. Put it on your lap or lying close to you. Stroke it and then, casually, touch its feet. Do not try to clip. Handle the pet, with increasing attention to the feet, for a week before attempting to clip.

Donald Ray Adams shot and killed two men in an alley in 1990, but spared the life of a woman eyewitness. The oversight proved costly. The witness testified this week at his trial, and yesterday a Common Pleas jury convicted Adams of first-degree murder for one killing, and second-degree murder for the other. Judge Carolyn E. Temin ordered a sentencing hearing for tomorrow. Assistant District Attorney David Desiderio will ask the jury to sentence Adams, of Warnock Street near Rockland, to die. Evidence shows that Adams had approached Darryl Patterson, 33, of Cecil B. Moore Avenue near 31st Street, on Dec. 22, 1990, to buy cocaine.
