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. Tattbits "American Beauty/Pie's" Mena Suvari, 26, has filed for divorce from Robert Brinkmann, 43, her husband of five years.

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.

Upper Uwchlan is on its way to getting a township seal, after supervisors gave the nod Monday to the idea and its design. Local artist Jane Boggs, who was commissioned by the township's Historic Commission, presented her design to the township Monday. During her presentation, Boggs told the supervisors that she was inspired by the history of the township when deciding on a motif. 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.

The referees huddled to discuss the call. They then huddled again. They talked to the Springside Chestnut Hill coach and huddled once more. The call stood. Haverford School regained possession after a fumble, but the delay seemed to sap the game's energy. But on the next play from scrimmage, the energy returned. Fords running back Reginald Harris took the handoff, bounced to the right sideline, and ran almost untouched for an 85-yard touchdown. The score sealed host Haverford School's 32-16 win Saturday afternoon and kept the Fords undefeated in the Inter-Ac League.

One of three men allegedly hired by South Philadelphia auto mechanic Ronald Galati to kill two potential witnesses against him in an insurance fraud probe pleaded guilty Thursday, signaling that he will testify for the prosecution in the larger case against the wannabe mobster.

Now comes the hard part. Philadelphia businessman and philanthropist H.F. "Gerry" Lenfest said he bought out his remaining partner in Interstate General Media on Wednesday, taking the helm alone as he tries to navigate a successful passage for the region's dominant news company. "Of all the things I've done, I can't think of anything more important," Lenfest said of his purchase of The Inquirer, the Philadelphia Daily News, and Philly.com. "If we can put the operations of the newspapers in good hands, with responsible leadership and a good board of directors, then I think I will have accomplished a lot for Philadelphia.

ALLENTOWN - Walking to the plate in the top of the seventh inning, Lansdale Catholic's Ashley Seal wasn't sure what to do. Should she bunt to advance the runners, or swing away and hope to knock in one of her teammates? Crusaders coach Paul Suder knew what he wanted to do. With runners on first and second, none out, and his team down by a run in the PIAA Class AAA softball quarterfinals, he wasn't going to have his team go for the tie, he said. They were going to go for the win, and his sophomore pitcher, Seal, had the green light to swing.

JURGEN KLINSMANN was not hired as manager of the U.S. senior men's soccer team to necessarily adhere to the status quo. Shaking things up was almost a mandate for the German-born coach, who won a World Cup as a player and managed Germany to a third-place finish in another. So while, Klinsmann made the shocking move to leave the U.S. all-time leading scorer and most recognizable name off the team that will travel to Brazil next month for the 2014 World Cup, it was not unpredictable.

When Lansdale Catholic's Ashley Seal stepped to the plate in the bottom of the seventh inning, the sophomore pitcher looked to finish what she had started.

The righthander threw all seven innings of the slugfest, striking out five and walking three. Seal improved to 8-0 this season. Kristen Szczepaniak went 2 for 4 with six RBIs, belting a grand slam with two outs in the third, for Lansdale Catholic.

FOR MOST couples, regardless of the their stations in life, a marriage is a profoundly life-changing event and, arguably, the most important commitment two people can make to one another. But for The Most Important Couple in the World, it appears marriage is just another marketing trick to ensure the world's attention for another day or two. Although their announced big day is May 24 (in Paris, no less), Kanye West and Kim Kardashian might have already tied the knot. Or, they might not have.

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.
