She was a Memphis belle long before she became a bottled-blond spokeswoman. She was an actress, notably in "The Last Picture Show," long before TV's "Moonlighting" reheated her career. Now Cybill Shepherd is clearing her throat in order to sing: She will star in the annual Coconut Ballroom revue at Merv Griffin's Resorts in Atlantic City through Sunday. It's a comeback, of sorts, for the Memphis-born Shepherd. She first gained national attention as a singer on the Miss Teen-age America Pageant in 1966 at 16. "I'm very excited about it," she says.

The cathedral began filling long before the Mass began, the crowd spilling out from the wooden pews onto metal folding chairs set along the side aisles. They came by the hundreds from the city's Polish parishes - St. Adalbert's, St. John Cantius, St. Hedwig's - arriving in flocks of yellow school buses. There were judges and politicians. There were nuns and prominent laymen. There were elderly women in Sunday coats and faded scarves. There were more than 125 priests, a sea of white surplices that filled the sanctuary.

Ch. Covy Tucker Hills Manhattan, a German shepherd that had always been a bridesmaid but never a bride in four previous appearances at the Westminster Kennel Club classic, finally made it to the top at the 111th running of dogdom's most important contest last night in Madison Square Garden. It was the culmination of a frenetic four-year career that had cost owners Jane Firestone and Shirlee Braunstein a quarter million dollars a year and had earned the hard-driving herding specimen 198 show bests, only a few less than the all-time, all-breed record.

She was surrendered by her owner. Hard to believe that anyone could resist a sweetheart like Dutch with her one ear up and the other down.

When a police officer retires in Bridgeport, the officer usually gets a testimonial dinner, presents, a plaque, a pension and a send-off by the Borough Council. For Drake, retirement was a little different. He not only received the plaque and the send-off, but he also was awarded a home for the rest of his life. Drake is a German shepherd who has spent most of his six years in the K-9 unit in the Bridgeport Police Department, where he served as a partner to Officer David Santoro.

While Cybill Shepherd is best-known as an actress, she'd be happy to trade that reputation for an operatic singing career. That isn't likely to happen, though she did have operatic vocal training during the early '70s. But Shepherd is taking on an increasingly heavy workload as a cabaret, jazz and big-band vocalist - squeezing it in between acting assignments, to be sure. For instance, Shepherd will be the guest star in Merv Griffin's Coconut Ballroom salute to the big-band era, to be presented tomorrow through Sunday at Griffin's Resorts Casino Hotel.

After winning their first game of the season, the Washington Redskins have lost three games in a row. For Leslie Shepherd and Tre Johnson, two former Temple players, that's nothing new. But getting these times confused with the old days, filled with football atrocities, would be a mistake. "We're happy because of football," Johnson said. "That should say it all. " These days, the two former Owls still spend their weekends playing football for a rebuilding team, but on Sunday instead of Saturday, proving that playing for an abysmal college team doesn't necessarily kill one's chances at professional ball.

Rob Kramer threw for three touchdowns to lead St. John Fisher to a 31-0 win over Rowan in the quarterfinals of the NCAA Division III playoffs yesterday in Pittsford, N.Y. The Cardinals (12-1) advanced to the semifinals for the first time. They will face defending champion Mount Union next week. "St. John Fisher is one of if not the best teams we saw all year long," said Rowan coach Jay Accorsi, whose Profs fell to 9-3. "They are a very good football team, and they did some great things today.

SOME PEOPLE really get off on stirring the pot, while others kick up controversy without even realizing that's what they're doing. Take Sherri "the Earth is flat" Shepherd , a co-host on ABC's mid-morning gabfest "The View," who last month got herself into hot water by asserting on national TV that men on the down low are behind the rise in HIV/AIDS in black communities. Down low is slang for men who identify as heterosexual but who have sex on the sly with men, too. Apparently Shepherd believes that if it weren't for them, then such a high percentage of the new HIV/AIDS female cases wouldn't be black women.

A Feasterville man, who damaged an expensive Porsche he mistakenly thought belonged to a man who was dating his girlfriend, pleaded guilty in Bucks County court to driving under the influence of alcohol and to criminal mischief. Dennis A. Shepherd, 29, of Meadowbrook Rd., told President Judge Isaac S. Garb, "If I had known it wasn't his car, I wouldn't have damaged it. " Shepherd was charged with driving his pickup into the side of a 1976 Porsche 935 in a New Hope parking lot on Jan. 21. Shepherd then smashed the windshield and windows of the $100,000 car with a piece of pipe and fled the scene as a neighbor called police.

I crave hard cave-aged cheeses because of their complexity. But that complexity takes time - at least 60 days by law in the United States if it's made from raw milk, plus extra weeks to harmonize. But aging time, of course, costs money, both for producers and consumers. And raw milk cheeses can't be eaten by everyone (i.e. pregnant women). So Valley Shepherd Creamery's Eran Wajswol has come to a tasty compromise with a new cheese made in the Italian caciotta-style. His latest creation, called Nanticoke after one of New Jersey's Native American tribes, is made from 100 percent pasteurized sheep's milk cheese and finished within just 35 days, as opposed to the 90-plus typical for many of Valley Shepherd's other products.

There was a time, easy to forget now, that Nolan Carroll and JaCorey Shepherd were supposed to be something more than invisible. They sit two lockers apart from each other in a corner of the NovaCare Complex locker room. They were sitting there Tuesday, minutes before the first practice of the Eagles' mandatory minicamp this week, their first practice since an injury ended each of their seasons last year. Carroll was one of the Eagles' starting cornerbacks last season, for the team's first 11 games, until he broke his right ankle Nov. 27 against the Detroit Lions.

'So I'm waiting . . . right here . . . on the ground," vocalist Spenser Michaels intones - for about the 10th time - before the music abruptly stops. "Pretty much the [melody's] structure stays the same. After the second chorus, we can change the timing," guitarist Rob Gibbs says. "We got to get drums on that one," bass player Jules Hinson adds. Gibbs concurs. Everyone puts monitor headphones back on. Drummer Gary Dann counts off another take of "Find a Road Back to You," a song the four-piece was hoping finally to record one recent Sunday at the Boom Room in Kensington.

WHEN GREGORY Garcia met Kim Annette Shepherd she had to teach him that it was OK to take a vacation. Greg, a longtime postal worker, apparently enjoyed his work because he didn't like to take a break from it. Kim assured him that the sky would not fall on him if he left the job for short stretches. Kim also taught Greg how to work in her beauty salon, not exactly second nature to a manly man. In return, Greg taught Kim how to drive, and she got her driver's license. When Kim was stricken with multiple sclerosis and years of slow decline followed, Greg was there every day to care for her. He had a simple explanation for why he did it: "I loved her. " Obviously, their relationship was the epitome of quid pro quo. Kim Annette Shepherd-Garcia, whose beauty salon, Studio 13, at 13th Street and Erie Avenue, was a neighborhood asset, died Dec. 2. She was 57 and lived in Willingboro, N.J. Through her long illness, Kim never complained and never lost her enthusiasm for life.

JaCorey Shepherd's rookie season is finished before it even started after an MRI exam revealed Monday that the promising cornerback tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. With that diagnosis, the Eagles lost a player who left them intrigued on draft weekend and excited during the spring workouts. He was the first player to take snaps at nickel cornerback after the team dealt Brandon Boykin on the eve of training camp, and Shepherd had been the front-runner for the position.

THE EAGLES have a whole group of young cornerbacks they like, so the season-ending right ACL tear suffered Sunday by JaCorey Shepherd definitely can be overcome. But there's no denying the secondary group is weaker now than it was a couple of weeks ago, when Brandon Boykin was the top nickel corner, and Shepherd was his precocious rookie backup. Now, the focus shifts to 2014 fourth-round pick Jaylen Watkins, whose first-year performance didn't keep the Birds from drafting three corners this year and signing another prominent rookie free agent at the position.

JaCorey Shepherd was carted off the field during a training camp workout Sunday, and the rookie cornerback is due for an MRI exam on his right knee Monday to determine the severity of the injury. If the diagnosis proves to be a torn knee ligament, it would be a tough loss for the Eagles' secondary. Shepherd, a 22-year-old, sixth-round draft pick, is the front-runner to replace Brandon Boykin as the team's top nickel cornerback. He has had a strong training camp and stood out to the coaching staff since the spring.

THE MOST interesting charge leveled at Chip Kelly this offseason had nothing to do with race. That honor belongs to former Eagle Cary Williams' suggestion that he and his teammates were "exhausted" toward the end of the year due to the coach's unapologetically intense practices. Whether or not Williams' summation is accurate, it is worth mentioning in connection with something that happened midway through yesterday's open practice at Lincoln Financial Field. At the end of a nifty catch-and-run, running back Darren Sproles collided with JaCorey Shepherd, knocking the cornerback awkwardly to the turf, where he remained for several minutes before being carted off by the training staff with an apparent leg injury.
