She was a punk party-goer, a magazine magnate, a porn model, a junkie. She dyed her hair purple and helped run one of the country's most explicit porn publication. She posed for pictures wearing stockings, a hat and nothing in between. She procured women for her husband and became addicted to drugs rather than let him do it alone. Her beginnings were sordid and sad (she said she was orphaned at 8 when her father murdered her mother, grandfather and mother's friend) and her end last month at age 33 - in a bathtub in Los Angeles - even sadder.

Suspended from the 90-foot-high ceiling of the Convention Center's train shed is "cirque CIRQUE," a sculpture fashioned of brilliant glass orbs and glistening steel and aluminum cables. However one judges the aesthetic merit of the work by Judy Pfaff, as well as the rest of the 61-piece collection, there's cause to celebrate its formal display. Ms. Pfaff's work completes the Convention Center's collection of sculptures, paintings, photographs, collages and silk screens, which have a strong local emphasis and a national reputation.

It's official: CBS is shutting Public Eye, the newsmagazine featuring Bryant Gumbel. The program's staff members got the word Tuesday from CBS News president Andrew Heyward that they would lose their jobs before the scheduled Sept. 16 final broadcast. About 40 people are affected, said CBS News spokeswoman Sandy Genelius. The news came as little surprise, because Public Eye suffered low ratings during its freshman season and failed to win a slot on CBS's fall lineup, announced in May. "You can't keep a staff if you're not on the air, because if you're not on the air, you don't have a budget," Genelius said.

Poor Bryant Gumbel. Here he is, new show, new network, trying to get the word out on Public Eye with Bryant Gumbel, his newsmagazine premiering tonight. And all anybody wants to ask the former morning man about is the size of his office, his split from his wife, and how he treated Deborah Norville. The New York papers have been all atwitter, first with word that when Gumbel moved to his CBS quarters, he demanded prime real estate, knocking down walls and creating a bigger office than CBS stalwart Mike Wallace.

In the glare of his patrol-car headlights, Philadelphia police Officer Gary Sinclair could see the woman under Vincent Bove struggling to get up from the pavement. He could also see Bove hitting her in the face. Bove's pants were down. As soon as he saw the officer, he pulled them up and ran a half-block before two officers caught him. The woman's nose bled, her head was bruised and one eye was swollen shut, a medical report would later show. Police arrested Bove that day, July 23, 1983.

Paul Janssen sat back in his office chair, looking as if he had found his niche. While he began the post only one week ago, Upper Southampton's new manager showed no new-job jitters and wasted no time getting down to business. The traditional orientation wasn't necessary. Janssen, the former manager and assistant manager of two Montgomery County townships, greeted the job like an old friend. His return to municipal government was like coming home. "I'm ready to come back," he said.

When the wheels of Camden government do not turn the way some officials would like them to, an obscure nonprofit and its pot of money has come in handy. And the private nonprofit is run by the same government leaders who oversee Camden's redevelopment efforts, giving state-appointed chief operating officer Melvin R. "Randy" Primas Jr. and his handpicked redevelopment czar Arijit De powers and money they can use largely out of the public eye. When the hotly disputed redevelopment plan for Cramer Hill got tangled in litigation, Primas and De teamed the nonprofit up with a former business partner of Primas' in a bid to launch an affordable-housing piece of the project outside of the overall scheme.

Yes, Dolly Parton says, she has had plastic surgery - "nips and tucks and trims and sucks . . . eyes and chin and back again. " And there's more where that came from in Parton's new autobiography, "Dolly: My Life and Other Unfinished Business. " "It is not only a right but an obligation for a woman, especially a woman in the public eye, to look as good as she can. It's like keeping up a racehorse or a show dog. " So yes, Parton says, she has had her breasts done, too. "I said, 'Do whatever you have to do to make 'em firm, make 'em stand up. "'
