The other day, The Inquirer published the football rushing leaders in South Jersey entering the weekend, and there was one distinct trend: the overwhelming presence of runners from South Jersey Group 1. Five of the top 10, including the first three, were from Group 1 schools, which brings us to the coming playoffs. In many years, the smallest-enrollment group has one or two major contenders, but looking at this season's field is like scanning the list of top rushers - there are plenty from which to choose.

WHETHER it's craft-brewery cans or longnecks of Yuengling, beer has long dominated the barroom conversation in Philadelphia, leading to one of the most sophisticated draft-tower environments in the country. Cocktails, too, have found a permanent foothold in the sipping landscape, with a small but smart roster of savvy drink-crafters earning attention for their efforts. So, where does that leave wine? Unfairly relegated to the bottom of the list, at least in terms of how often the topic leaps off the nuanced tongues of local drinkers.

A small group of clergy and the public gathered yesterday for a seminar on hate crimes convened by the Missionary Baptist Pastors' Conference of Philadelphia and Vicinity. The gathering, at Childs Memorial Baptist Church, followed recent interracial crimes in the city. A rally was planned last night.

THANKS for displaying the wonderful story of the Philadelphia students standing tall in the National Moot Court Competition on the front page. The story by Valerie Russ was inspiring. We too often read of negative events involving high school students caused by a relatively small group. Let's give good kids some more encouragement and recognition as they face the challenges of life. Jim Lowney Toms River, N.J.

The health-care debate in Washington is now in its 11th month, and yet it has rarely focused on the huge economic burden the current system imposes on America's largest employers: small businesses. Congress has treated the economy and health-care reform as if they were separate issues on parallel tracks that never converge. But the fact is that our current "jobless recovery" - if in fact it is a recovery - will remain jobless until Washington acknowledges that the two problems are intimately linked, and that there will be little private-sector job creation until something meaningful is done about health insurance.

Walt Disney Co. chairman and CEO Michael Eisner said Sunday that the boycott of Disney initiated by members of the Southern Baptist Convention was the work of "a very small group" whose "extreme" views did not represent those of most Americans. Representatives of the Southern Baptist Convention voted for the Disney boycott June 12 at the group's annual meeting in New Orleans, citing what they termed Disney's "anti-Christian and anti-family trend. " At the time, Disney issued a terse, two-sentence reply, which Eisner amplified on Sunday.

IF YOU KNOW Philly, then you know Philadelphians like to keep things real. I was reminded of that Friday when Republican Presidential candidate Donald J. Trump arrived in North Philly to meet with a small, select group of African Americans. It was intended as a private lunch meeting with the presidential hopeful who has been reaching out to minorities in recent weeks. I didn't score an invitation inside so I wasn't privy to the happenings inside the church. But the political theater that took place on the sidewalks outside the closed-door gathering was a free for all, the likes of which doesn't hit North Philly often.

Wins have been difficult to come by for Strawberry Mansion's still-fledgling football program. Entering its third season of varsity play, coach Steve Quigley's crew has gone 1-7 in the Public League and 3-16 overall. At least for Week 1, however, Strawberry Mansion knows only victory, and perhaps most impressive it won with just 15 players in uniform. "We've been stressing conditioning," said Quigley, who took over four years ago in Mansion's inaugural junior varsity only season.

ONE can immediately foresee the numerous responses from Bush lovers to Bryan Kilpatrick's Aug. 15 letter. Quite frankly, I'm surprised the Daily News printed his letter at all. Bryan, what you said are not "conspiracy theories," it's the deep, dark ugly truth - something Bush apologists refuse to hear. Bottom line: Bin Laden is George's bogeyman. If he's caught, there's nothing else to scare people with and the public's attention is focused on his beyond lousy performance as "president" (while the conservative media has helped him every step of the way)

DEAR ABBY: I'm 15 and my parents won't let me date. I try to talk to them about it often, but they are convinced I'm going to get hurt or lose my virginity. I think I'm old enough to have a small relationship. I don't believe in premarital sex, and neither does the guy I like. I know I'm mature enough to date. I don't want to date just because everyone else does. I want to date this guy because we are best friends and we want to see each other, hang out like teens and have a normal relationship.

Small-business advocates attending a champagne brunch and panel discussion on the state of micro-business and microfinance in Philadelphia Wednesday got a shot of inspiration from a surprise guest. An hour into the 90-minute event, held in conjunction with the Democratic National Convention, Rhett Buttle hurried into the meeting room at the Hotel Monaco on Independence Mall. A familiar friend to small business, most recently as president of the Small Business Majority, Buttle was coming with added clout.

Appearances to the contrary, Justice J. Michael Eakin wasn't horsing around. The case before the state Supreme Court involved two men from rural Mercer County arrested for riding a horse on a public highway while drunk. The men said Pennsylvania's motor vehicle laws were unconstitutionally vague, at least as they applied to their case, and asked that the charges be thrown out. Eakin disagreed and in a dissenting opinion lapsed into verse, borrowing from the theme song of the 1960s television show, Mr. Ed . "A horse is a horse, of course of course But the Vehicle Code does not divorce Its application from, perforce, a steed, as my colleagues said.

THE TWO MEN argued loudly inside Tustin Playground in Overbrook. One accused the other of ogling a young girl. The other denied it and said people needed to mind their business. They went at it for several minutes. Everyone in the park watched and waited to see what would happen. The guy who eyeballed the girl stormed off, but paused on the street overlooking the park to yell once more. Standing by a memorial for a man who had recently been shot 13 times while children played and swam nearby, he warned: "This ain't over!"

Standing on Independence Mall on Friday afternoon, Mannwell Glenn doused two Confederate flags with lighter fluid and stood back to watch as the flames licked at the fabric. "If you burn a Confederate flag, to some people, that's painful," he had said earlier to a small cluster of TV news cameras. "But whatever you're feeling about us burning your sacred flag, we feel that about 100 times more when nine people are killed. " The deaths of nine people at a historically black church in Charleston, S.C. - killed by a white gunman who reportedly told police he wanted to start a race war - had been weighing on him, he said.

KENNETT SQUARE The Cinco de Mayo festival in Kennett Square started in a parking lot. Behind the library, a few representatives from local nonprofits sat at tables and pushed their good causes to the few hundred who showed up. On Sunday, 13 years later, at least 15,000 are expected to crowd the Chester County borough for this year's festivities, now held on Kennett Square's main street. The festival, which commemorates the Mexican army's victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla in 1862, has become a streetscape of colorful costumes, foods, and music, and it is in the throes of a transition, just like the group that organizes it.
