In an appeal as futile as a Brit royal pursuing a happy marriage, Prince Edward and Sophie Rhys-Jones asked yesterday that the media grant them privacy in which to nurture their embryonic romance. In a letter, Edward, 29, told editors he didn't want the media "destroying that part of my life that I am entitled to regard as private . . . We are not planning to get married. . . . If this changes, we will let you know in a proper and formal manner. " Rhys-Jones' plea came via Brian Maclaurin, her boss at a London public relations outfit.

The Flyers will travel to the little seaside town of O'Leary in the Canadian province of Prince Edward Island tomorrow night - about 700 miles from the nearest season-ticket holder - in search of the right mood in which to open their 1992-93 season. Well, why not? A team that spends millions of dollars to sign an unproven superstar can surely afford to spend a little extra to put itself in the right mood as training camp opens. The team will open camp Saturday in O'Leary and go through two-a-day practices until next Thursday.

We were prepared for a high-season vacation last summer, one that would no doubt include crowds at the beaches, long waits at restaurants, and plenty of testy clerks. But if this was high season on Prince Edward Island, I cannot imagine low season. Yes, there were "No Vacancy" signs dotting the landscape along the two-lane roads on the Canadian island north of Nova Scotia, but most of the stops we made on our four-day journey to P.E.I. in mid-July were remarkably uncrowded. "Traffic" meant having more than one car in front of you. We'd decided to look at a trip to Canada because of the great exchange rate and because neither my husband nor I had spent much time there, except for a trip to the 1976 Olympics in Montreal and to Niagara Falls when I was 3. Besides being known as the Land of Anne (Anne of Green Gables, written by P.E.I.

LONDON PRINCE EDWARD KING OF ESTONIA? Britain's Prince Edward was offered the throne yesterday - of Estonia.

A few fish in every pot Chef Jared Cohen offers a traditional Italian cioppino at his just-opened Wine Thief in Mount Airy - a veritable melting pot of fish. The stew contains Prince Edward Island mussels, wild-caught Canadian halibut, and white shrimp from Vietnam, all of which are cooked to perfection and served in a large bowl atop pasta. Ginger and jalapeño peppers provide the zip in the rich tomato broth. Dip the toasted baguette slices to soak up every last drop, and trust me, you won't need dessert.

The Philadelphia Flyers hold "The Meeting" every spring, and this was the one in 2006. The team employs more than a dozen scouts, scattered in outposts around the globe. Their task is both simple and simply daunting: to identify kids who will grow up to look good in orange and black. In the weeks before the NHL draft, the scouts gather to assemble and sift through a list of these kids. Arguments are had. Voices are raised. It is the scouts' business, after all, and their passions are being tested, their reputations on the line.
