West Chester University's Bill Pryor was named the school's special-teams player of the week after his punting proved to be a key in the Rams' 19-17 Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference win over host Clarion on Sept. 11. Pryor, a 5-foot, 11-inch, 170-pound senior who played football, swam and ran track for West Chester Henderson, had 11 punts in the game for an average of 36.6 yards per kick. Two of his punts, one of 55 yards and the other of 48, topped his previous collegiate best of 47, registered last season.

Considering they are both Democrats from Arkansas, play golf together, chat on the telephone and have been highly critical of the nation's pharmaceutical industry, President Bill Clinton and Sen. David Pryor have spent surprisingly little time talking with each other about the cost of drugs. In fact, they have talked about it for less time than a world-class runner needs to finish a mile. Even an egg takes longer to boil. "We have spent about a total of 2 1/2 minutes during our long relationship discussing pharmaceuticals," said Pryor, just before receiving an unexpected call from the President during a recent interview.

When Raymond T. Pryor, 21, fatally shot Jeffrey Grayes, 19, early last year on a North Philadelphia street, he believed Grayes was the man who had stabbed him during a fight with several people at a house party two months earlier. "He was mistaken," said Assistant District Attorney Charles Grant. After convicting him of first-degree murder, a jury yesterday sentenced Pryor to life in prison. Pryor, of 16th Street near Loudon, testified he was sure Grayes, of Sydenham Street near Loudon, had stabbed him. And despite eyewitness testimony, Pryor denied committing the murder Jan. 19, 1985, on Broad Street near Loudon.

The Corinthian Square Senior Citizens Apartments, a miracle that has been 15 years in the making, celebrates its grand opening Sunday. The 60-unit apartment complex for low-income elderly and disabled tenants was built by the Corinthian Baptist Church of Germantown to help revitalize West Oak Lane. The project, at Godfrey Avenue and Wister Street, represents 15 years of struggle by the 1,800-member congregation to overcome tremendous odds, including the discovery of two huge leaking underground oil tanks that had to be removed before construction could begin, said the Rev. C.L. Pryor.

Advance Magazine Publishers Inc., of New York, is placing its new shared services center in Wilmington, bringing with it about 210 jobs. The first group of jobs would be filled by April 2003, Richard V. Pryor, the city's economic development director, said yesterday. He said there was "a very strong likelihood" that the number of jobs - all in back-office functions, not in writing and editing - would more than double in the five years after that. Pryor said Advance would receive a state grant of $3,000 per job, which would come to $630,000 based on 210 jobs.

News reports, the recently crowned Miss Dominican Republic, Carlina Duran, was forced to hand over her crown because she's married. "No mas," Duran cried when she gave up her title.

One Philadelphia woman mentally incapable of taking care of herself signed over her $1,000 Social Security check to an unscrupulous landlord who gave her $2 a day for food, cigarettes and a place to sleep on a basement floor. The woman is one of thousands of people who, because they are unable to manage their own affairs, are vulnerable to fraud and mismanagement of their federally paid benefits. Sen. John Heinz of Pennsylvania, ranking Republican on the Special Committee on Aging, yesterday cited the case of the woman - identified only as Mary M. - during a hearing that focused on what critics called the failure of the Social Security Administration to effectively monitor its program.

Are Senate Democrats anti-Catholic? Probably not. Are Republicans right to accuse Democrats of religious bias against Catholics? Probably, yes. If I sound ambivalent, it's because I am. On the one hand, I think the suggestion that the Senate Democrats who oppose Alabama Attorney General William Pryor are religious bigots is unfair. Several of the Democrats on the Judiciary Committee are themselves Catholic. Their objection to Pryor's nomination for a federal judgeship rests on their zealotry on one side of the abortion issue and what they perceive as Mr. Pryor's zealotry on the other side.
