When the Sweetwater Casino burned down this summer, Mullica Township residents grieved for the waterfront restaurant and the warm family feeling that had been its charm for 80 years. Generations had gathered at the Burlington County landmark for first dates, birthdays, anniversaries, wedding receptions and holiday parties. They watched sunsets at the marina and boats coming and going on the Mullica River. Sweetwater was the beating heart of the sleepy Pine Barrens town, and the location of a fund-raising regatta held each August to benefit a local child with a life-threatening disease.

Sales of Beyond Knitting Concepts' fashion merchandise total just $600. Yet Aisha Alexander, cofounder of the venture started a little more than six months ago with a knitting buddy, confidently describes herself as a successful business owner. "It's all about your state of mind," the South Philadelphia resident explained. Yuri Schneiberg sees it differently. In fact, he's staking a new business venture on a belief that he's right. Success as a small-business owner requires much more than a positive outlook, Schneiberg said - it requires an education specially designed for entrepreneurs.

What if the NFL held an owners' meeting and nobody showed? Well, almost nobody. The league kicked off its annual March shindig yesterday at the Desert Springs Marriott Resort and Spa. But more than a third of league's 32 owners were nowhere to be found. Not on the golf course. Not on the tennis courts. Not in the bar. Not in the health club. Nowhere. The reason for this unprecedented absenteeism has nothing to do with canceled flights or millionaire stomach flu and everything to do with a trial.

The National Football League's owners failed yet again to elect a new commissioner yesterday, prompting a visibly irritated Pete Rozelle to suggest that he may vacate the post. After a 10-hour meeting here, the 28 franchise owners failed to break a stalemate between supporters of two candidates, Jim Finks and Paul Tagliabue. On the fourth and final ballot of the day, Tagliabue received 16 votes and Finks 11. Al Davis of the Los Angeles Raiders, who has abstained on most previous ballots, left the meeting before the final vote.

The Pittsburgh Pirates' owners have accepted the mayor's offer of $3.5 million in Three Rivers Stadium lease concessions to help cover their financial losses this season, which are expected to be at least $20 million. Owners are still weighing mayor Tom Murphy's offer of an additional $6.4 million in financial assistance, possibly in the form of another loan, because of strings the mayor has attached. Chairman Vincent Sarni, who did not return a phone call, has notified the mayor that the owners will take the $3.5 million in lease enhancements.

Hoping to jump-start stalled labor negotiations, major league baseball owners are preparing a revised offer to present to striking players, the Dallas Morning News reported today. That offer, which will represent the first movement by management in more than four months, is expected to be made within two weeks, according to a highly placed ownership source. The new offer is expected to be a more generous version of the salary-cap system owners put on the table June 14. That one guaranteed players a 50-50 split of all revenues while abolishing salary arbitration and creating a new tier of restricted free agency.

NFL union leaders, who less than a day earlier said they were encouraged by the progress of contract talks with management, yesterday charged that the owners were stalling the discussions in an effort to test the solidarity of striking players. According to Doug Allen, assistant director of the NFL Players Association, the owners have asked that the length of the contract agreement be doubled from three to six years, among a series of other less dramatic changes proposed during the fourth day of talks.

With less than a week to complete the deal, John J. Rigas probably will learn today whether major league club owners will give him preliminary approval to buy the Pittsburgh Pirates. Rigas needs a positive vote of the 10-member major league ownership committee to begin serious negotiations with the current Pirates owners. The cable TV franchise owner already has made a preliminary bid of $80 million for the money-losing team. The ownership committee, which is expected to meet via conference call, consists of the two league presidents and representatives of eight teams.

Marge Schott might be right when she says people are trying to force her out. Only it's not someone who wants to buy the Cincinnati Reds, it's other owners and top baseball officials. Acting commissioner Bud Selig and National League president Len Coleman prefer that Schott step back from day-to-day operation of the Reds, two high-ranking baseball officials said this week, speaking on condition they not be identified. Officials can act under rules protecting the "best interests" of baseball.

Tia Manon trudged through the swampy cemetery of the old Ebenezer A.M.E. Church, looking for two names belonging to one man. Perry Ringgold was a slave who escaped the South on the Underground Railroad. James Williams was the free man he became after he was harbored by a Quaker family in Exton. According to family lore, this relative of Manon's helped found the East Whiteland church in 1832, but none of the stone markers bore a trace of him, by either name. She did come across one name she recognized, a Reason - William Reason.

The historic Bucks County inn featured on the hit TV show Hotel Hell is completely off the market, the owner said Thursday. "We never have intended to sell," said Verindar Kaur, owner of The Brick Hotel in Newtown Borough. Kaur had retained SVN Commercial Real Estate in hope of finding someone to operate the hotel and she said she thought a document she signed was to lease the property. It wasn't until she received calls from potential buyers did she understand she signed a sales/lease agreement, she said.

One dog literally baked to death in the sun and three others suffered extreme neglect all while their Chester owner was on vacation, authorities say. The three young pitbulls that were confiscated by Humane Officers are now recovering, said Justina Calgiano, spokesperson for the Providence Animal Center in Delaware County. On Thursday, the shelter received a call about two dogs left outside for at least two days in brutally hot conditions without water or food, she said. When Humane Officer Ron Riggle and assistant Sean Rowan, also a veterinary technician, arrived at the home in the 1300 block of Vauclain St. in Chester, they saw a collapsed male Akita chained to a cinder block in the yard.

A RED, antique-looking vending machine full of dog treats is posted outside Queenie's Pets in Mount Airy. A bowl of water is nearby. The store's owner, Adina Silberstein, started Queenie's, a dog-walking and pet-sitting service, 10 years ago as a home-based business with just one employee. Early last year, the Mount Airy native moved her business, now with 17 employees, to a large but cozy storefront at Germantown and Mount Airy Avenues. She had dreamed of this spot for years.

DEAR ABBY: Please remind your readers that it's important to keep their dogs on a leash for their pets' protection as well as the protection of those around them. In my community, leash laws are rarely enforced, and it's common to see dogs running loose in city parks. The result is an increase in dogfights and unwelcome contact with people. Coyote attacks are also common here in the West, and small dogs are often the victims. If other dog owners kept their dogs leashed, I wouldn't have to worry about them bounding up to mine and about the ensuing dogfight that follows when my dogs interpret that behavior as a threat.

The Dukart men will not be celebrating Father's Day at McDonald's. They spend up to 12 hours a day, six days a week, under the Golden Arches, eating lots and lots of fries, burgers, and Chicken McNuggets. "We're already what you call super-heavy users," Joel Dukart said, explaining why he and brother Michael will treat their father, Les, to something other than a Happy Meal on Sunday. All three, plus Les' brother Alan, are principals in Dukart Management Corp., licensed operators of 11 Mickey D's throughout Pennsylvania and Delaware, with about 625 employees.
