RE THURSDAY'S color posters: ENOUGH WITH THE CHEERLEADERS! We have 50 players on the team. Real sports fans and collectors would much rather have a picture of a player. Female sports fans are certainly not interested in pictures of the cheerleaders - and every man to whom I have spoken is also not interested. When the players were featured on Thursdays, my husband made sure he got his Daily News early to ensure he got his picture. Now on Thursdays, he is not nearly as enthusiastic.

Perhaps only in South Philadelphia could a neighborhood dispute over an inground pool snowball into years of legal wrangling, including a civil suit, criminal charges and a code of silence worthy of a Mafia movie. It started in 2008, when the Baldi family, of The Reserve at Packer Park, a tony 230-home development on a triangular patch of land near FDR Park, installed an inground pool against civic-association rules. The association sued to have it removed. "No one else has an inground swimming pool," said Kevin Kelly, an attorney for The Reserve at Packer Park Homeowners Association.

Once you find the plain green door marked "maintenance" inside Camden Catholic, you can't miss the aura of the school's wrestling program. Inside the door and down a stairwell, the steps lead to a wall that reads, "You are walking the green mile . . . pathway to the House of Pain. " If you continue on the green-painted floors and avoid the spare wrestling mats in the hallway, you'll eventually reach the gym. The pictures of seven state champions grace one wall. An opposite wall is covered with 18 pictures of past Region 7 champions.

Recently, I decided to do a task that has been on my job list since June: Sort family photographs and put them into albums. I carried up boxes of photos and half-finished albums stored in the basement. I emptied drawers where I had stashed more pictures. I took down shoe boxes filled with photos from closet shelves. Every time I thought I had them all, I'd discover another box. Soon our dining-room table was buried under half-filled albums and loose snapshots. More pictures littered the floor and threatened to drift into the living room.

Almost anybody nowadays can take a technically professional picture. For less than $200, it is possible to buy a professional-quality camera with a lens that has automatic focus to ensure that the pictures are sharp, automatic aperture to ensure that the pictures will be properly exposed, and even automatic, self-adjusting flash to ensure that enough light will be available. About the only thing the photographer needs to do is to remember to unload the film and take it to the lab for processing.

Cows, pigs and Philadelphia is the answer. And the question? Why is photographer David Lorenz Winston suddenly such a hot commodity? All 294 suites in the newly opened Hawthorn Suites Hotel, 11th and Vine Streets, feature at least two lithographic enlargements of Winston photographs of the city. Some rooms have three. Six 1999 calendars feature his work, including the Fairmount Park calendar. One calendar has nothing but pig pictures, another just cows. The other three are sheep, goats and horses.

Inaugural exhibits commonly take refuge in the past. But not the one that opens at the Widener University Art Museum on Tuesday - eight days after Chester's newly elected leaders took office. That exhibit, featuring paintings by Wallingford's Randall L. Exon, clearly looks to the future and salutes this city and its 42,000 inhabitants in optimistic terms. In these landscapes, still lifes and figure paintings, Exon, who teaches art at Swarthmore College, presents us with something mildly stimulating to memory and the imagination, possibly poetic and certainly picturesque.

The third Challenge exhibition of the 1989-90 season at the Fleisher Art Memorial offers one unusual strategy and two variations on more familiar ones. Of the latter, one is carried off with brio and conviction; the other is earnest but flawed by ingenuousness. The novelty is supplied by photographer Judith Taylor. Her 18 black-and- white prints, most of them figure studies, can be considered portraits of a sort, although the subjects are depicted only from the chin down, so they remain anonymous.

Shoeboxes packed with photographs, slides and negatives crowd the basement, closets and drawers of Daniel J. Kelly's home. The cramped cardboard boxes are filled with samples of Kelly's favorite hobby - photography. After 14 years and countless rolls of film, Kelly has an award to store with all the memories. Kelly was one of 27 amateur and professional photographers to win a competition sponsored by the Pennsylvania Heritage Affairs Commission. "Photography is the best way I know of to share an experience with someone who isn't there with you," said Kelly, who lives with his wife and two children in the 9300 block of Outlook Avenue in Academy Gardens.

A Montgomery County Court jury took a brief visual tour of society's darker reaches yesterday with the showing, in open court, of the child-pornography images allegedly seized from the office computer of an Episcopal priest. The grainy, mostly black-and-white photos of young boys engaged in sexual acts with one another and with men were flashed onto a large-screen television during the trial of the Rev. Robert K. Orr. Jurors betrayed no emotion as the pictures flashed across the screen.
