DAVID WELLS has no problem telling it like it is. Or was. The former major league pitcher talked candidly about his dislike for late Reds owner Marge Schott in a taped appearance on YES Network's "CenterStage" last night. Wells spent only a half-season with the Reds in 1995, but dealing with Schott made it seem like an eternity. "[She] was psycho," Wells said of Schott. "She's nuts - cheap as can be. You had to go in, if you wanted a pair of socks or sleeves or stirrups, whatever it was, you had to go up in her office, and it was like a cave in there . . . you had to buy them from her. She taxed our meal money.

ANOTHER WEEK, another racially charged epithet in European soccer. The latest incident involves Sampdoria president Massimo Ferrero, who apologized yesterday after saying he told Massimo Moratti to "kick out that Filipino" in reference to Indonesian businessman Erick Thohir. Apparently, Ferrero and Moratti were long-time associates. So when Thohir bought out Ferrero and became the president of Inter Milan soccer, Ferrero took exception. Moratti, who was Inter president for 18 years, was handed an honorary president title, but he stepped down from that position on Thursday.

Taxi owners scrambled Friday to find replacement liability insurance after a major insurer failed, but the threat of immediate grounding of one-quarter of the city's taxi fleet was lifted.

EVEN THOUGH two months and a heartbreaking reunion with the wrong dog had passed since Nia Kora's beloved Pomeranian, Chi-Chi, was stolen during a burglary at her Francisville apartment, the Penn State nursing student held out hope that she'd see her dog again. Over the weekend, Kora's wish came true when a salon owner who had unknowingly bought Chi-Chi - whom he knew as Candy - days after the July 30 burglary spotted a Daily News story last week about Kora accidentally being reunited with the wrong dog. "Something inside me felt like, 'Hold up, a dog was stolen in the summer, and it wasn't too far from my barbershop, at the same time I got my dog, the same kind of dog, the dog wasn't answering to her name,' " Henry Collins, who owns Mecca Unisex Salon in Progress Plaza on Broad Street, said yesterday.

A little-noticed change in federal law may hurt small neighborhood grocery stores and their low-income customers who use food stamps. In 2004, food stamps went digital, switching from paper coupons to electronic cards. In large supermarkets, such Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards are swiped at checkout terminals along with credit and debit cards. But in around 118,000 bodegas, corner stores, and mom-and-pop markets nationwide, EBT cards have been used in specific EBT machines provided to stores free in a federal-state partnership, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which administers the food-stamp program, known as SNAP.
