ARIES (March 21-April 19). Problems are gifts. You're better for having to solve them. Today's puzzle will seem to be about a very narrow focus of life, but the solution to this is applicable to the larger issues you'd like to handle. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You're drawn to the beauty of mountains and other quiet, unchanging landmarks that were there before you and will remain after you for hundreds of years. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Are you hopelessly entangled in a quest for true love?

St. Joseph's Prep won its quarterfinal race Friday at the Henley Royal Regatta and moved on to Saturday's semifinals in Henley-on-Thames, England. Racing Melbourne Grammar School of Australia, the Prep trailed by half a length 300 meters into the 2,112- meter course. Halfway through the race, Melbourne stretched its lead to a seat of open water. But the Hawks made Melbourne pay for overstroking early in the race, and coxswain Lou Lombardi called for a power move. So Dean Hill, in the stroke seat, responded by dropping the rate a beat and got the boat into a driving rhythm.

LAS VEGAS - So the question is this: What did we learn in the 15 days that have encompassed summer league play for the 76ers in Orlando and Las Vegas? Well, of course, let's start with the biggest subject of the days, and that is, of course, Nerlens Noel. As a matter of fact, he is all we really need to talk about right now. First off, the team was quite cautious in playing the 6-11, 220-pounder. He had far more days off than on, explained repeatedly by the team as just a precautionary move, easing the second-year player back onto a court he hadn't officially been on in a year-and-a-half.

In its first game after being named the No. 1 high school boys' basketball team in South Jersey by The Inquirer, Woodrow Wilson High's grip on the top spot appeared tenuous, at best. The visiting Tigers were trailing fourth-ranked Bishop Eustace, 67-62, with three minutes left last night. Eustace had the ball and was spreading the floor. But the Crusaders turned the ball over, and Wilson began the comeback that gave it a 71-68 victory in the Olympic Conference National Division matchup.

Two games. Two gut-wrenching overtime losses. This isn't the way Drexel coach James "Bruiser" Flint envisioned the season's start. The Dragons controlled the tempo against run-and-gun Illinois State for a good portion of their nonleague thriller Thursday night, but they couldn't make a key basket - or a stop - down the stretch as they dropped an 86-84 overtime decision at the sold-out Daskalakis Athletic Center. "You have to give them credit," Flint said. "They made the big plays when they needed them, and we didn't.

John Evans may not be as heralded as some of the scorers in Camden's rich basketball tradition, but he's beginning to supply clutch performances reminiscent of so many top Panthers guards. Yesterday, the 6-foot-1 senior scored 12 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter to lead Camden to a 76-62 win against Overbrook in an Olympic Conference American Division showdown. Camden, No. 5 in The Inquirer's South Jersey ratings, improved to 14-6 overall and 11-1 in the conference. The Panthers are now in sole possession of first place.

THERE WAS the stutter-step dribble that led to a lefthanded floater. Another time it was the one-dribble power move to the left that led to a layup. There also was a quick power move to the right baseline over a smaller defender that went for a dunk and an ensuing free throw. He also ran down Chris Paul from behind and flicked the ball away from him during a dribble, leading to a basket at the other end. Nerlens Noel's progression can't be talked or written about enough. Last night, he was matched up against Los Angeles Clippers center DeAndre Jordan, one of the premier rebounders and shot blockers in the NBA, though offensively challenged.

Bodies flew, shots were constantly contested and very little came easily for either team. In other words, it was a typical defensive struggle between the Shawnee and Cherry Hill East boys' basketball teams. It's never an artistic success when these teams meet, and last night was no exception. Shawnee welcomed the return of point guard Sean Mulholland, who scored a game-high 18 points as the Renegades defeated East, 52-40, in an Olympic Conference American Division game. Shawnee, ranked No. 2 in South Jersey by The Inquirer, improved to 4-1 overall and 2-0 in the American Division.

New Jerseyans gripe about their property taxes but turn out in small numbers for the April school board elections that largely determine how high they will be. Could moving them to November increase voter turnout - and save money? The Assembly Appropriations Committee on Thursday approved a bill that gives school districts, towns, and voters the power to decide whether to move school elections to coincide with the general elections in November. Doing that would also eliminate the requirement to hold a vote on school budgets - unless the school districts propose to increase their tax levies more than the state-imposed 2 percent cap. The new timetable could be adopted if at least 15 percent of district voters who cast their ballots in the last election for Assembly sign a petition approving it. Alternatively, a town or board of education could move the school elections to November simply by adopting a resolution to that effect.

If the Phillies are going to advance to their third World Series in 4 years, they just might have to do it in a manner that defies precedent. Ruben Amaro Jr. expressed a strong belief yesterday that he will not be making a significant move before the July 31 trade deadline. And there is reason to believe that he isn't simply feigning disinterest, as he has the past couple of winters before signing Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee to free-agent contracts. The recent admission that the Phillies are currently noncompliant with baseball's income-to-debt ratio gives plenty of credence to their claim that they are short on disposable revenue.

In more than 30 states, a quirky, quiet and clean class of cars that look like streamlined golf carts is allowed on the public roads. But not in Pennsylvania. The reason: They have a top speed of just 25 m.p.h. - and opponents fear these battery-powered cars, known as neighborhood electric vehicles, could tie up traffic, cause road rage and result in accidents. State Sen. Stewart J. Greenleaf wants to change the perception and state law. Greenleaf, a Republican from Willow Grove, is the chief sponsor of a bill in Harrisburg that would legalize them.
