THE PAGAN stationed on a corner of Atlantic Avenue in Wildwood stood with his burly arms crossed over his belly, guarding the infamous motorcycle club's hotel-turned-fortress like a living, breathing gargoyle. Behind him, yellow caution tape and blue tarps draped the Binns Motor Inn - a signal from the Pagan's Motorcycle Club for "citizens" and nosy cops to keep out during the 2011 Roar to the Shore biker rally this month. It's the same hotel where federal prosecutors say that leaders of the Pagan's Long Island chapter at last year's rally told their minions to prepare for death or prison as they plotted a hand-grenade attack on the rival Hells Angels.

St. Bonaventure was fairly confident it was already in the NCAA tournament for the first time since 1978, even going into last night's Atlantic Ten Conference semifinal against Dayton. Now the Bonnies have no doubts. They lost every bit of an 11-point halftime lead at the First Union Spectrum, actually fell behind by 37-36 with eight minutes left, then roared back to a 56-50 victory that removed all doubts. Tim Winn, who led all scorers with 20 points, quickly hit a three-pointer and the Bonnies went on a 9-0 run to give them some breathing room.

Last time he was back in Philadelphia, the Rev. Leon Sullivan joked: "I'm 77 years old, but I keep going, like the bunny in the commercial. " That was last year, and he was wrong - as he knew he would be. "The Lion of Zion" (Zion Baptist Church in North Philadelphia, that is) is dead. But what a legacy he has left us: The Opportunities Industrialization Centers he founded in Philadelphia and continued to administer as the movement spread worldwide. The North Philadelphia apartment complex, Zion Gardens; shopping center, Progress Plaza, and Progress Human Servvices Center - prototypes of inner-city, minority-owned, self-help business, retirement and assisted-living ventures throughout the nation.
