Rich Carlucci has fashioned a baseball career that merits a long, leisurely look at his past. He prefers to gaze into the future. Carlucci will be inducted into the Camden County Hall of Fame on Oct. 30 in well-deserved recognition of his sensational work as a pitcher for Audubon High School in the mid-1970s. Carlucci was a three-time all-South Jersey selection and won 36 games in his career, pitching 18 shutouts. He was 13-0 as a senior in 1975, and led the Green Wave to their first state title.

In May 2003, Melina Mazza Waldo went to Washington to lobby Congress as a member of the Philadelphia chapter of Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG). "I had an encounter on Capitol Hill with a clergyman, who loudly interrupted me and pushed me as I was being interviewed by a reporter," she later wrote in The Inquirer. She said her son, Craig, told her at the time: " 'You're their worst nightmare, Mom!' He explained that the last thing the far right wants people to see is a mother speaking up for her gay child.

TRENTON - Between frequent trips out of state campaigning for Republicans, Gov. Christie has been spending much of his time at home talking about one topic: addiction. In one month, Christie has held events focused on addiction on four of the nine days he has appeared publicly in New Jersey - including Thursday, when he announced formation of a task force to improve prevention and treatment. "We need to continue to make change and deal with addiction differently," Christie said at a news conference at Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Trenton, where he said he had met with several women recovering from addiction.

When I ran toward the end of the Jersey Shore Half Marathon on Sunday, I was focused on two things: pass the woman in the alpine-themed shirt, and get to the finish line in under my time goal. What I did not expect at that finish line was for a member of the Civil Air Patrol to put a medal around my neck. It was, after all, a $35 race. This may be the least I've paid for a half marathon ever (in comparison, the Philadelphia Half Marathon costs $125). The Jersey Shore Half Marathon is a 42-year-old event at New Jersey's Gateway National Recreation Area, a national park more commonly known as Sandy Hook.

New Jersey's First District, which includes the neediest city in the state, Camden, has not had representation in Congress for more than half a year. Not that anyone has noticed. That will change in November, when voters choose a replacement for former Rep. Rob Andrews, who walked out the door amid a congressional ethics probe concerning his use of campaign funds for a family trip to Scotland. Andrews' decision to resign opened the door for what might have been easily mistaken for a coronation.

LUKE SCHENN laughed. Because, well, there was really nothing else he could do. He was still in a state of disbelief after the Flyers' 6-4 loss to the Devils last night. The only New Jersey goal to which Schenn wasn't either victim or witness was the empty-netter that Mike Cammalleri scored to seal a disheartening home debut. One deflected off his stick past goalie Steve Mason. On another, Mason's line of sight was cut off by Schenn in front. "I'd say some were bad bounces," Schenn said.

NAEEM JOHNSON, a suspected pimp police had been chasing since June, couldn't run from the law forever. On Tuesday - about four months after Philadelphia Police obtained a warrant for Johnson's arrest on charges that he sold an 18-year-old woman for sex in a seedy Northeast Philadelphia hotel - the man's luck ran out in South Jersey. That's where, police said yesterday, a FBI violent crime task force tracked him down and found him pimping another woman inside a Mount Laurel Red Roof Inn. Being caught in the act bought Johnson, 31, an additional charge of promoting prostitution in New Jersey, said Philadelphia Citywide Vice Sgt. Joseph Lanciano.

Abortion doctor Steven Brigham's decades of disciplinary trouble came to a head Wednesday when the New Jersey Board of Medical Examiners yanked his last remaining medical license. The board cited Brigham for doing late-term abortions that began in New Jersey and ended in Maryland, violating the laws of both states. It ordered him to pay a $140,000 penalty and as-yet-unspecified costs of prosecution, even though Brigham revealed that he is in dire financial straits from IRS liens imposed on him for not paying employee taxes.

NEW JERSEY is heading to federal court this month in a bid to allow its struggling casinos and racetracks to offer betting on sports events. We wish New Jersey good luck, but most experts feel that the odds are against the state succeeding. States have broad powers to sanction and regulate most kinds of gambling, but a federal law passed in 1992 blocks them from making book on sports events. That is, the law blocks most states. The Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act provided exemptions for four states that already had laws permitting sports betting - Nevada, Delaware, Oregon and Montana.
