Casualties of war and prisoners of history, the three characters in The Red Ribbon don't know one another, but they are umbilically connected. In this feverish allegory set in a no-man's land bordering Iran and Iraq, a pregnant young Iranian woman returns home to her family farm only to find it lost in the rubble of bombshells and tank parts. Not unlike Dorothy searching for the Emerald City, Mahbube (Azita Hajiyan) sees that her path is clearly marked, not by yellow brick but by lengths of red ribbon.

The grinch - well, three grinches - nearly stole Christmas from a Medford woman, but their efforts were undone by two feet of trailing red ribbon. Medford police say the woman had gone to visit relatives in the first block of Contesta Court around midnight on Christmas Eve, and unloaded the gifts onto the front porch. She went inside for about 15 minutes, police said, and when she came out, the gifts were gone. Medford police combed the area but couldn't find the stolen items, worth about $500.

This holiday season, Mothers Against Drunk Driving is urging the American public to "tie one on. " No, MADD doesn't want you to get intoxicated. Rather the organization that works to combat alcohol abuse wants motorists to attach red ribbons on the left door handles, outside rear-view mirrors or antennas of their cars. The ribbons are intended as reminders to not drink and drive during the holidays. Officials of the Marc Ethan Crowell Memorial Chapter of MADD, serving Delaware and Chester Counties, started the local "Tie One on for Safety" campaign on Monday night at Delaware County Community College.

His name is John Lasne, and he is a storyteller. He's also a letter carrier from Greenville, S.C. But Lasne has spent the last several years delivering much more than letters. Through his stories, he delivers hope, and last week he brought his message and his stories to South Jersey. It was the latest stop on a storytelling tour sponsored by the U.S. Post Office's diversity division. The tour has included stops at the White House, and at schools and community centers in Oregon, Alaska, California, Ohio, Massachusetts, Florida, Alabama and Wisconsin.

We all know someone who can top any story you tell. I'm not saying that my story about somebody getting my credit-card number and charging merchandise across the country, the ramifications stretching over months, is the most suspenseful one of our era. But it's the best story I've got to tell these days and I tell it well. So it steams me when this geezer steps in and tramples on my lines about how $1,300 was charged fraudulently to my credit card. Even before I got it all told - I was coming to a couple of lines that through use were polished like stones in a rushing brook - he said, "Let me tell you about my friend who had his battery stolen.

Ed Graziano, like any astute art-school student, knows where to find the free food. "There's three stations," he said to a classmate over the whir of an exhibit opening last week at the University of the Arts. The man who once wore custom suits and $500 shoes untucked a white dress shirt from his baggy jeans. He clutched a water with lemon, grabbed from the open bar. A red ribbon attached to his name tag identified him: ARTIST . Graziano, a third-year fine arts major with a focus in sculpture, turns 51 in May. He is a graying undergraduate, a man of paradoxes.

If you're riding through Roxborough and Manayunk today on SEPTA's Route 35 bus, you might want to tip your hat to the driver. He's a national hero of Poland. Official recognition came earlier this fall to Andrzej Sekowski, and 25 years after the fact. His signature act of protest involved a can of black paint, a red ribbon, some grease, and a pig. It was actually the second pig that earned Sekowski a year in prison for activities found subversive to the communist state. The first one went off as planned.

Tui is the Maori name for a black bird with a small white tuft at its throat. When the English came to New Zealand, its native habitat, they named it the parson bird. Tuis are honey eaters; they have two voice boxes, and some of their sounds range beyond human hearing. On opening night at Subcircle's Christ Church fall run, called Seed , Gin MacCallum and Niki Cousineau danced like two wavering voices that hushed us and left us craving to hear and see them. Cousineau and MacCallum choreographed, and New Zealand's Carol Brown, who has worked with Subcircle and Group Motion here in past years, directed.

In the race among granny states, Pennsylvania has cemented its place as third oldest in the nation, according to new census data. The flip-flop when the Keystone State first dropped from second place went largely unnoticed. During the election last year, national news reports continued to refer to Pennsylvania as second oldest, citing the 2000 census. But for the fifth year in a row, about 15 percent of Pennsylvania's population was 65 or older last year, behind Florida's 17 percent and West Virginia's nearly 16 percent, population estimates released last week show.

Atop a red vintage John Wanamaker hatbox is a gray fedora, the kind Elliot Ness would have been proud to wear. Nestled in front of the box is a black sequined rectangular hat, evoking the cigarette-girl style of the '40s, and hanging from a vintage tin watering can is a red straw hat encircled by a red ribbon and matching netting. Everywhere in the window of Graysons Flower Shop, and inside the Palmyra store, too, hats peek through geraniums and pop up alongside African violets - pillboxes trimmed with mink, velvet ones from the 1930s festooned with ribbons of pink, red and white, and one straw boater, de rigueur in the 1900s at the bandstand across the street and along the town's Delaware River promenade.

Angela Stanford does not mind breaking even on Atlantic City casino tables. The golf course, however, is a different story. To ease the pressure of maintaining a 1-shot lead heading into today's final round of the ShopRite LPGA Classic, Stanford planned to gamble conservatively in blackjack and roulette last night in nearby Atlantic City. But on the golf course today, Stanford, 25, plans to go for the gusto. A win at the Seaview Marriott Resort Bay Course would be her first in three years on the LPGA Tour.

Fieldsboro, a town of about 500 people 10 miles from Fort Dix, has become a flash point for political expression over the war in Iraq. Sparked by a yellow ribbon. Diane Johnson, a borough resident, was told Wednesday that two yellow bows she had affixed Monday to a sign reading "Entering the Borough of Fieldsboro" and a nearby tree must come down by order of the Borough Council and Mayor Edward "Buddy" Tyler. The council had decided by consensus on Tuesday to prohibit the ribbons and other personal displays on property in the Burlington County borough.

Where's My Sock? has one of the more unusual names of the horses in the barns at the 103d Devon Horse Show this week. Rider Corey Golden isn't positive, but she thinks the chestnut gelding picked up the moniker because he has three white legs, and one with color. "Well, I call him Stevie anyway," said Golden, an Allentown-based rider. Where's My Sock? is owned by Elizabeth F. Klein of Wayne. By any name, Where's My Sock? was a winner yesterday, picking up two blue ribbons: one in Local Working Hunter, the other in Local Hunter Under Saddle.
