Back in 1984, Irene Tesaura suffered severe injury when an oral surgeon damaged a nerve in her jaw with an injection of alcohol. A Philadelphia Common Pleas jury awarded her $2,747,000. The surgeon, Dr. M.L. Perrige, appealed, claiming the award was "excessive. " The state Superior Court didn't agree. It told Perrige he's going to have to bite the bullet and pay the award. "This jury verdict does not shock our sense of justice," said the appeals court. "The severity of Mrs. Tesauro's injury in itself would support the compensatory award.

The big Mac is suffering from more than plantar fasciitis in his feet. After a battery of tests, doctors are nearing the conclusion that 76ers center Todd MacCulloch has nerve damage in his feet. About a month ago, MacCulloch began experiencing a "strange" sensation in his feet - tingling, burning and numbness. "It's not an excruciatingly painful thing," MacCulloch said yesterday after a three-hour film and practice session, "but it's uncomfortable. " And it is constant, although MacCulloch said that doctors thought it was reversible.

Randy Johnson will miss another two or three weeks with a bulging disc in his back, Seattle Mariners manager Lou Piniella said yesterday. Last year's American League Cy Young Award winner went through an electromyogram, which measures impulse and nerve patterns in muscles, on Friday. It revealed no nerve damage to his back. Johnson, 32, went on the 15-day disabled list May 13. The bulging disc will not require surgery, team doctor Larry Pedegana said. "It is important that it did not show any nerve damage," Pedegana said.

The wait was like getting teeth pulled, but a jury finally came to a decision in the case of a patient who sued his dentist for getting on his nerves. The patient put the bite on the dentist. After deliberating for about a day last week, the Philadelphia jury awarded Robert Bey, 42, and his wife, Diana, $600,000 for what they have painfully gone though as a result of a tooth extraction in 1995. The verdict was obviously a kick in the teeth for the dentist. The panel agreed with lawyers Stewart J. Eisenberg and Brian C. Hall that Dr. Fred Sacks, an oral surgeon, of Cheltenham, failed to specifically inform the husband that he might suffer nerve damage when he had his tooth pulled.

Ian Laperriere will start the season on the injured list, and even the usually upbeat Flyers right winger conceded Wednesday that he has thought about retirement recently because of post-concussion problems. But don't, Laperriere warned, count him out just yet. "I'm not retiring now," Laperriere said in a phone conversation. "My main focus is getting better. " An NHL source said he didn't expect Laperriere to play this season. If he does not, it wouldn't be surprising if his 15-year career was over.

COOPER WAS A NO-SHOW We were among the disappointed hoping to catch a glimpse of Agent Dale Cooper skulking about the Germantown Friends School yesterday when two other "Twin Peaks" honchos - writer Scott Frost, brother of "Peaks" co- creator Mark, and Lynch-Frost Productions representative Ken Scherer - blew into town. Frost was checking out the school and the Germantown and Chestnut Hill area in preparation for writing Cooper's "biography" - tentatively titled "Agent Cooper: My Life, My Tapes" - which will be published by the Pocket Books come April or May. The fact that Kyle MacLachlan was not scheduled to be amongst the entourage did not deter fans at the school, which his agent attended, according to the storyline.

The bullet tore through the cop's arm and slammed into his protective vest with such force that doctors had to pry it out with a knife. But former Officer Durrell Gardner, 38, survived to testify against the man who shot him. That man, Jerry Frazier, 36, was apologetic at his sentencing yesterday, but Common Pleas Judge Anthony J. DeFino was unmoved. "If that officer hadn't been wearing a bulletproof vest, you would be here for sentencing on a murder charge," said DeFino, who then imposed a 12 1/2 to 25-year prison term for aggravated assault and weapons offenses.

Dodgers centerfielder Brett Butler, whose 32nd and final radiation treatment for throat cancer is scheduled for Monday, will have his right shoulder examined by Dr. Frank Jobe today in Los Angeles. Butler, who was diagnosed in early May with cancer, had surgery on May 21 to remove lymph nodes and muscle tissue from his neck and throat. In the process, Butler suffered some nerve damage in the shoulder, though it is unknown if it is permanent. Today, according to Butler, Jobe will attempt to measure the amount of "firing power in the nerves," before Butler begins a rigorous training schedule to return to baseball.

A Philadelphia jury has given a Brooklyn Hasidic rabbi and his wife a $1.5 million Hanukkah present. The Common Pleas jury ruled in the rabbi's favor in a slip-and-fall case this week. Before the trial, Rabbi Samuel Krausz, 47, worried that he might not have a prayer in finding eight contemporary Philadelphia jurors who could relate to his "old world" accent and traditional dress, said his lawyer, Bruce M. Ginsburg. But the American-born rabbi's concerns were unwarranted.

Phillies catcher Steve Lake, who is on the disabled list with a sprained fifth finger on his right hand, says he won't play anymore this season. Lake made the comments after visiting a hand specialist yesterday. "I got some good news: I don't need surgery," he said. "But I have a partially torn ligament and a torn capsule. There is nerve damage caused by the swelling, but that will go away. "They told me anywhere from six to eight weeks, and that if I played and re-injured it I'm looking at surgery," he said.

READING - Ben Revere was part of the contingent charged with selling the Phillies' rebuilding plan during the team's winter banquet stop inside a Reading hotel Tuesday night. More than a few people, of course, are not sold on Revere as the man who should be roaming center field and batting leadoff, either this season or in future ones for the Phillies. Can't throw, hits nothing but singles and does not have a high enough on-base percentage are all legitimate concerns constantly raised about Revere.

Home first. Job second. That's how Your Way Home flips the script for reducing suburban homelessness. An increasing number of counties across the country - including Chester and Montgomery - are adopting this "housing first" model. Organizers of successful programs have found that formerly homeless people are more confident seeking employment when they have their own homes where they can eat, shower, relax, and sleep in peace. "Getting in units is the easy part," said Dave Garber, an employee of Keystone Opportunity Center and a housing locator for Your Way Home Montgomery County.

At the Vineland (N.J.) Veterans Memorial Home, assistant business manager William H. Palmer Jr. has a special bond with the 175 or so World War II veterans who live there. His father, Ensign William H. Palmer, was part of a secret mission during the D-Day invasion that delivered messages from the command ship Ancon to the shore during days of radio silence. His father, who was originally trained for one of the rocket boats that pounded the beach right before the troops went in, rode near the beach in a British seaplane tender, then swam the rest of the way. He made several such swims for the first two or three days of the invasion as part of Task Force K of Force O (for Omaha)

O BSERVATIONS, insinuations,  ruminations and unbridled opinions . . . Glorious Bastardo So where were they? Triple A game featuring the Lehigh Valley IronPigs? Nice job, kids. Maybe if an emergency starter is needed down the road, Vance Worley can replicate his starts last season. Stutes? Not much to his resume before this year. The kid has cat-burglar guts. But can he get away with pounding the strike zone like that against big-league hitters? Bastardo?

They held the Pro Bowl again yesterday, in Hawaii, but Weaver was in Birmingham, Ala., rejoicing over his three sons joining him for a visit, as Weaver continues his rehab under the auspices of Dr. James Andrews. This has been a tough season for the big fullback who might have been the Eagles' top veteran addition of 2009, on and off the field. "The question has lingered in my mind - why now?"

Eagles fullback Leonard Weaver intends to be back on the field next season, his agent, Harold C. Lewis, said Tuesday, but he faces a long road back from his devastating knee injury. "He has no intent of calling it a day," Lewis said. "If you know Leonard Weaver you can be sure he will back. " He added, "He is doing tremendous, and I have no doubt that he'll be back on the field. " But while Lewis and Weaver have both painted an optimistic picture of the fullback's recovery - it would be surprising if they didn't - both have acknowledged that it was a severe injury and have declined to say specifically when Weaver could realistically play again.
