Doris Simpson boarded a bus in Camden yesterday and traveled to the urban mayors' "State of the Cities" rally to let Gov. Kean know that all is not rosy in the Garden State. In fact, said the Camden resident and county employee, if she and seven colleagues are laid off as planned, Camden will go to the rats. "Rats would take over the city and county," said Simpson, a health aide with Camden County Vector Control. Funds for the pest-control agency have been eliminated from the state budget, which means eight people will lose their jobs with a program that handles calls about crib-bound babies bitten by rats and educates children in day-care schools about the dangers of rodents.

Springfield (Delco) junior star running back Marty Brown rushed for 138 yards and one touchdown to lead the unbeaten Cougars to a 17-6 victory over Central League rival Ridley before 5,000 fans at Springfield High yesterday. Afterward, Brown disclosed that he had received inspiration from the oddest of places: the other team's pep rally. It turns out that the brother of Brown's girlfriend attends Ridley High and was at the school's pep rally, at which Ridley students had a dummy of Brown hanging in effigy.

About 200 pilots and other employees of Eastern Airlines and their spouses shouted and applauded as they watched a boisterous pep rally on closed-circuit television last night at the Adam's Mark Hotel. The group was among an estimated 20,000 Eastern employees who gathered at locations around the country to view the rally, which originated in Miami and Atlanta. The Air Line Pilots Association staged it to provide encouragement to Eastern pilots who have not crossed picket lines in a strike against the airline by the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers.

Update: Dallas Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy played college football for the University of Mississippi ("Ole Miss"). His college and position were incorrectly listed. THE STREETS of Philadelphia will experience plenty of spirit this Halloween, but not just of the spooky variety. That spirit peaked yesterday as hundreds of Temple students, alumni and fans donned cherry and white and cheered, on Market Street between 5th and 6th, in the background of the first of many "ESPN College GameDay" broadcasts leading up to tonight's game against Notre Dame.

ATLANTIC CITY - The Soul's first foray into Atlantic City wasn't a royal flush, but it wasn't snake eyes either. The local arena team hauled its 50-yard field and its own padded walls down the AC Expressway for its first-ever regular-season home game away from the South Philly sports complex. After a sluggish first half, the Soul dispatched Las Vegas, 51-43. But the Boardwalk experiment was more than a football game for the AFL, which is forever trying to nudge its way up to the feeding dish occupied by the more mainstream sports in Philadelphia.

Philadelphia lawyer Jimmy Binns took in the scene before him Friday - cops on motorcycles, cops on horses, firefighters on a truck, and even the Phillie Phanatic, all shutting down Market Street - and he remembered when the Hero Thrill Show was in need of a rescue. "I took over in 2006, when it had gone out of business," Binns said of the annual fund-raiser he heads. "They had virtually no people attending. They had about 200 people attend. Last year, we had 55,000. This is my ninth year, and I'm putting 17 children through college.

There was the 29-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter. There was the 84-yard catch-and-run for another TD in the fourth. But Cedar Creek junior wide receiver/defensive back Ahmir Mitchell thinks his most athletic play of the weekend might have been his backflip before the entire student body during a pep rally in the gymnasium Friday afternoon. "That might have been the best," Mitchell said with a smile after Cedar Creek opened the season with a 41-0 home victory over Cedar Grove in a nonleague game on a steamy Saturday afternoon.

WAYNE STEWART Sr. and his son who shares his name knew all along that Philly's own Taney Dragons could bring a win home against Texas in last night's Little League World Series game. Even as the rest of the crowd of about 200 Taney fans that the Stewarts joined to cheer the team on the big screens at the City Hall courtyard tensed up during the nail-biter of a contest, they held fast to their Philly faith. "I'm still feeling good," the older Stewart said after Pearland, Texas' Cole Smajstrla hit a three-run homer to take the lead and Taney changed its pitcher in the top of the fifth inning.

A few days after the fourth funeral, Mike Gately heard about a contest. His neighbor told him that Under Armour, the Baltimore-based athletic apparel company, was starting a promotion to engage high school sports programs around the country. It was called "Finding Undeniable," a challenge to students and coaches and administrators to display school spirit through group cheers, band performances, mascot routines, and other shows of student-body enthusiasm. It was so now for today's teenagers - all tied into Facebook and other social media, all related to generating online votes, uploading videos, and eliciting "shout-outs" from celebrities on Twitter.

This year, like every year, Tim Luko, 58, a member of the Satin Slippers Fancy Brigade, paid a visit to the preserved body of St. John Neumann, the patron saint of Mummers, which is enshrined on the ground floor of St. Peter's Church at Fifth and Girard. "It's overwhelming," he said moments after standing before the revered saint's 5-foot-2 body, encased in a glass casket. And never more so than Sunday, at the 29th annual Mummers Mass, during which his son, also named Tim, just back from Afghanistan, led a procession in which his son Tim, 5, gently placed a pair of golden slippers - a pair of spray-painted kids' Velcro sneakers, to be exact - on the gleaming marble altar.

TO LOOK at Sean Burke yesterday, you would have thought it was summertime in Appalachia, not Dec. 1 in suburban Philly. OK, so he wasn't sweating profusely, but his arms were bare throughout La Salle High's football practice in ch-chilly weather at Plymouth-Whitemarsh High. "I'm always this way. No sleeves," said the 6-foot, 215-pound Burke, a senior and 2-year starter at middle linebacker. "While everyone else is in sweatpants and sweatshirts. "Actually, there are three of us. Linebackers Mike Eife and Dillon Smith do this, too, but I'm the ringleader because me and Connor Daly did it last year.
