The Rose Tree Media School District has signed a lease with the Ethel Mason Child Care Development Center that will reduce the number of rooms the day- care facility can rent in the Media Elementary School. And the new lease puts the center's officials on notice that 1989-90 will more than likely be the last year Ethel Mason will be able to rent space in the building. School district officials maintain that they need the space at the elementary school for additional classrooms for students.

Marc Staal scored a power-play goal 1 minute, 35 seconds into overtime after Brad Richards tied it in the dying seconds of regulation to lift the host New York Rangers to a stunning 3-2 victory over the Washington Capitals in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals Monday night. With goalie Henrik Lundqvist pulled for an extra attacker, Washington's Joel Ward took a four-minute penalty for high-sticking Carl Hagelin with 21.3 seconds left in the third period. Richards tied it on the first half of the power play with just 7.6 seconds to go, and Staal won it with a drive that appeared to deflect off a Washington player before beating goalie Braden Holtby.

The grill will be sizzling as usual today as the lunch line grows at Rick's Original Philly Steaks in Reading Terminal Market. But owner Rick Olivieri's mind will be focused on a different order - one he hopes to get from Common Pleas Court Judge Mark I. Bernstein, his last hope of remaining in the market where his family business has been since 1982. Barring some last-minute development, Bernstein will begin hearing testimony today in the nonjury trial of combined lawsuits that Olivieri filed against market management and that management filed to evict Olivieri.

Coming off an outstanding performance that helped Sweden win the IIHF World Championships in May, Flyers defenseman Erik Gustafsson has a new lease on his NHL life. Unlike any other point in his young career, Gustafsson feels he belongs in the big leagues. Entering the World Championships, "I didn't know what they expected of me there, and they really gave me a lot of responsibility, and I felt I played really well, and the team played really well when we needed it," said Gustafsson, a fleet puck-mover who led Sweden by averaging nearly 24 minutes per game and was not on the ice for any even-strength opponent goals.

Some were veteran customers, some were tourists or conventioneers, and some just wanted to be there on the day Rick Olivieri cooked his last steak sandwich at Reading Terminal Market. But that day wasn't yesterday and probably won't be today. The stalemate between Olivieri and management of Reading Terminal Market remained yesterday with Olivieri doing a booming first day of business without a lease, and market officials letting him be while starting the legal eviction process and waiting for the next move in Olivieri's lawsuit against them.

The voice of experience Yankees catcher Jorge Posada said yesterday that Joba Chamberlain should stay in the New York bullpen for the foreseeable future to avoid the kind of injury that has sidelined Posada for a month this season. Posada, recovering from season-ending surgery to repair his right shoulder, made the comments on the Yankees Entertainment & Sports Network. "Leave him in the bullpen," Posada told interviewers. "You're going to lose him because he's going to get hurt.

The rent shot up from $1 to $57,600 a year. The district residents started asking questions. "Who's accountable for representing [the interests of] the taxpayers of Bristol Township?" Larry Raffle, school board treasurer, asked at a board meeting Monday as he questioned the lease expense. He and other residents asked why the district has been shelling out five figures a year since 1990 for 18,000 square feet of storage space in the basement of the old Delhaas High School. The Bristol Township School District closed the high school in 1981, shortly after district enrollment started to plummet.
