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.

A chubby, happy harbor seal has been spotted in the Rancocas Creek, apparently lured by herring, says a wildlife expert who assists stranded and displaced marine animals. "It's not unusual for the seals to follow the herring in the spring and to not know how far upstream they are going," said Bob Schoelkopf founder of the Marine Mammal Stranding Center in Brigantine, N.J. "As long as they find food, they're happy. When they run out of food, they go back down" into Delaware Bay and out into the ocean.

ISSUE | CHURCH AND STATE County seal not the place for a cross Contrary to a commentary's assertion that the boundary between state and church is ill defined, the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment clearly protects all Americans from the divisiveness of religion in government ("Seeking standards on religion," Aug. 28). Thomas Jefferson, the architect of our Constitution, famously conceptualized a wall that separates state and church. It's for good reason that the Freedom From Religion Foundation, with four local residents, filed suit last month to challenge the use of a Christian cross on the Lehigh County, Pa., seal and flag.

In a filing to a judge last week, state prosecutors argued that they should be allowed to proceed with a trial for Graham B. Spanier, the former Pennsylvania State University president accused of child endangerment in the Jerry Sandusky sex-abuse scandal. Days later, Spanier's lawyers countered that the memo did nothing more than "sling mud" through "page after page of unproven, sensational allegations. " But identifying that so-called mud, or even the crux of the Attorney General's Office's argument, isn't possible.

Whatever the variations in front-seat car consoles, they all come with one common curse - the deep, diabolical crevice between them and the front seats. Too narrow for most fingers to fully penetrate, but plenty wide for keys, credit cards, cash, jewelry, food, toll tickets, and just about anything else you don't want to go there, that gap is a kind of "car-muda" triangle that seems to suck in indiscriminately both essential and expendable objects, some of them forever. The good news is there's a cure for those cracks.

Pennsylvania State University has opposed a move by a coalition of media organizations - including the Inquirer, the Daily News, and philly.com - to unseal court records surrounding settlements it paid to end claims by accusers of Jerry Sandusky. In a new filing, Penn State lawyers cited the need to maintain confidentiality for the alleged victims, some of whom have claimed that head football coach Joe Paterno or his assistants knew as early as the 1970s that Sandusky had sexually assaulted them.

Mayor Kenney announced Thursday that every fourth Thursday in May will be World Heritage Day in Philadelphia, a recognition of the city's newfound status. Philadelphia was named one of 267 World Heritage cities last year. It is a designation given to cities with a UNESCO World Heritage site and a place that the Organization of World Heritage Cities considers to be of global interest. "I hope that all Philadelphians can share in the pride of living in a World Heritage City," Mayor Kenney said.

During Thursday's practice, Clearview coach Rocco Cornacchia reminded his infielders that the Pioneers still were looking for their first double play of the season. "How about tomorrow?" Cornacchia said, looking ahead to Friday's showdown with Williamstown. The coach might have added, "And how about in crisp fashion to end the game?" Because that's how Clearview finished Friday's 4-1 victory over Williamstown in a Tri-County Royal Division clash of Top 10 teams. "That was great," said junior shortstop Tim Dezzi, who started the double play by fielding the sharp grounder and flipping the ball to junior second baseman Pete Liccio, who turned and fired to senior first baseman Kenny Mendoza.

A federal appeals court on Wednesday questioned the point of Bill Cosby's request to reseal the decade-old court documents that have helped reignite criminal and civil sexual-assault cases against him. During arguments before judges on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit in Philadelphia, one of Cosby's attorneys acknowledged that resealing the records could be akin to putting toothpaste back into the tube. Judge Thomas L. Ambro quipped that even that metaphor might not go far enough.

In a game in which a combined 27 goals were scored, Kathryn Laffey of Cardinal O'Hara scored what was easily the most important goal of the bunch. Laffey found the net with 19 seconds remaining in regulation to give the host Lions a 19-18 victory over Bonner-Prendergast in a Catholic League showdown Thursday. The goal was Laffey's third of the game, but she was not the only Lion to score three goals. Anna DiRita, Erin Grady, Molly Grady, Meghan Shallow, and Liz Tosto each had three goals for the hosts.
