More than 250 years after it was first settled, New Hope finally has a seal. Borough council Monday night announced the winner in its recent competition for a seal reflecting the borough's heritage. The winning design, created by Hopewell, N.J., painter Joseph Crilley, depicts an artist's palette, the Parry Mansion, which is headquarters of the New Hope Historical Society, and a boat on the Delaware Canal, which runs through New Hope. The crest bears the words, "Borough of New Hope.

Residents gathered on steps and watched as city workers went into the blighted houses to toss heaps of rusted metal and fetid trash into large yellow trucks and then seal the houses shut. "We can breathe again and look out our windows without seeing all that trash," said Kandi Tabb, of Silver Street near 25th. Several other women - almost afraid to hope for more - pointed discreetly at a drug house they said also needed to be sealed up. In front of them, a workman from the Department of Licenses and Inspections, part of a five-man crew that had been cleaning and sealing the houses on the block since Saturday, held forth on the virtues of his work.

SUPERMODEL Heidi Klum wed singer Seal Tuesday on a beach in Mexico. There were no additional details as of yesterday. We'll assume they're still married. In January, Klum said on her Web site that she and Seal were engaged. Two months later, the couple announced Heidi was pregnant. Klum, 31, and Seal, 42, began dating last year, shortly after her breakup with Renault Formula One team boss Flavio Briatore, who is the father of her daughter, Leni, born last May.

To call the South Philadelphia rowhouse a "wreck" would have been too kind. It was stripped of all plumbing and lighting fixtures. Piles of debris were strewn across the rotting first floor. The size of the holes in the ceiling and walls almost matched the pane-less windows. So why did Ken Skinner call the abandoned dwelling on Carpenter Street near 21st "a good house"? As chief of Department of Licenses and Inspections' nine "clean and seal" crews, he has seen a lot worse.

Local artist Jane Boggs, who was commissioned by the township's Historic Commission, presented her design to the township Monday.

Her design is a circle bordered in gold rope with the words Upper Uwchlan on a background of a green hill, or upland, with a blue sky and one gold star.

The Goode administration is developing plans to seal houses that are being used as drug distribution centers, sources said. Although a Police Department spokesman said plans are not complete, other sources said the city intends to begin physically sealing about eight so- called "crack" houses a week in the near future. The sources said the Police Department will be responsible for drawing up a list of drug houses and, where warranted, to conduct raids on them. Subsequent to the raids, and after the properties are vacant, the Department of Licenses and Inspections will seal the first-floor doors and windows with cinder blocks and cement, the sources said.

Next stop: Indianapolis. Federal officials said yesterday they had found a home in that Midwestern city for a female gray seal that has spent the last six months in a Brigantine facility recuperating from a broken back. The Indianapolis Zoo will welcome the 7-month-old female pup next month. It will join four California sea lions, three harbor seals, and one gray seal in the zoo's collection. "This is the best news we've had in days," said Bob Schoelkopf, director of the Marine Mammal Stranding Center in Brigantine.

Thanks to Police Officer William Miles, Willistown Township now has an official identity. Founded in 1704, the township has spent the last few hundred years with a state seal rather than one depicting the township's individuality. A Willistown police officer for more than 20 years, Miles will go down in history for designing the first township seal. The seal illustrates some of the most important aspects of the township's past, present and future - fox hunts, Indians and the modest beginnings of municipal government.

Redesigned seals for the space shuttle rocket boosters will have "full redundancy" to ensure that failure of a single seal will not trigger the disastrous sequence that doomed the Challenger, an engineer for the contractor that builds the rockets said yesterday. Allan J. McDonald, an engineer with Morton Thiokol Inc., said the design team he heads may scrap the trouble-plagued O-rings whose failure sparked the Jan. 28 shuttle explosion that killed seven astronauts. McDonald, who argued against the Challenger launch the night before the accident, told the House Science and Technology Committee that Thiokol's new design will "make sure we have full redundancy . . . for the full duration of the flight.

As a modern British soul singer with nary a nod to R&B's raw-powered past, Seal has often been a slippery live performer; a sweatless crooner whose cool, powerful voice lingered on his free-floating mix of jazz and folk chords, and icy instrumentation, rather than on the intensity of his lyrics. But to an older adult audience at Electric Factory on Friday, Seal warmed up. Tentative at first, Seal displayed a vocal chill that matched the gurgling sequencers and preprogrammed drum clicks of "Crazy" and "Killer," songs whose lyrics displayed a paranoia and solitariness at one with their iceberg-funk.

DEPENDING ON how you interpret the tone of general manager Paul Holmgren and coach Craig Berube, goaltender Steve Mason might not be ready for Game 1 of the Flyers' first-round series with the Rangers tomorrow night at Madison Square Garden. Either that, or the Flyers prefer to keep their opponent guessing with gamesmanship. Mason practiced for nearly 20 minutes yesterday before a planned exit from the ice whisked him into video review and meetings. Holmgren said Mason, still suffering from the ill effects of a collision with Jayson Megna in Pittsburgh on Saturday, was out of the training facility a short time later and "receiving treatment.

Becky Pund might as well have been all alone in an empty gym. She was relaxed, almost casual. In her mind, there were no screaming fans. No pressure. The game wasn't on the line. "Don't you ever," she was asked, "get nervous in these situations?" "Not at the foul line," Pund said after draining eight consecutive free throws late in Gloucester Catholic's 44-36 victory over Shawnee on Thursday night. "I really don't let the crowd affect me. I get to the line. I take my time.

When Dan Nordeman's header off a corner kick flew into the back of the net for the Central Bucks South boys' soccer team, it wasn't just an insurance goal in a tight game or a well-executed set piece. It was the senior fullback's first career varsity goal. It was also an example of the Titans' defense coming up big on both sides of the ball Friday. Two of their senior backs got one past the Pennsbury keeper, giving South a big Suburban One cross-division win over the Falcons, 2-0. Nordeman was asked what was more important to him: the goal or the shutout?

Dahkim Seals learned the empty, helpless feeling of coughing up the ball twice in one quarter. He learned how to overcome adversity on a football field. He learned what it's like to break a big run under pressure and to complete a big throw with the game on the line. He learned what it takes to lead his team to victory. Saturday, in his first high school football game, Seals learned just about a career's worth of lessons as his Penns Grove football team escaped with a 14-12 win at home over Glassboro in a crucial WJFL Diamond Division matchup.

It was a weekend of crisp, pulsating baseball when every pitch mattered. The only thing missing was a pennant race. This was a reminder of what could have been and what many expected, the Phillies and Atlanta Braves going toe-to-toe with little margin for error for either side. Darin Ruf's solo homer to right-center in the eighth inning off reliever David Carpenter provided the difference in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Atlanta Braves at Citizens Bank Park. The Phillies completed a three-game weekend sweep, with all three victories by one run. Of course, the fact that they trail the Braves by 191/2 games sort of took the air out of the balloon.

PITTSBURGH - It has been a long time since the Phillies had Pirates envy. Pittsburgh's last winning baseball season - 1992 - turned 21 this year, and when a team strings together that many clunkers, it can drive fans to drink. Halfway through the season, however, the PNC Park patrons are overcome with joy about a Pirates team that entered this three-game series against the Phillies with a nine-game winning streak and the best record in baseball. Phillies manager Charlie Manuel has been impressed with the Bucs, particularly their bullpen.
