It began as a normal workday for Langhorne resident Christine Dion, a nurse in the coronary care unit of Delaware Valley Medical Center. But her routine was interrupted at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday when she went into labor. Dion wasn't due to have the baby until Jan. 25. A woman having a baby in a hospital may not seem remarkable. But since Delaware Valley has no maternity unit, this was a new experience for its staff. "We normally don't deliver babies here," said hospital spokeswoman Pat Hilgar.

Downingtown Junior High School students are delivering comfort and joy - literally - this holiday season. In what has become an annual tradition, 40 Family and Consumer Science students will deliver 150 handmade "lap pillows" to transplant patients at the University of Pennsylvania Medical Center and Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia tomorrow morning. Each patient will receive a pillow shaped like the organ he or she has received. Project coordinator Sue Lackovic, a special-education teacher at the school and the recipient of a kidney transplant, has been making the trip with the ninth-grade students for the last four years.

Jon Edelman has a metal mailbox, which his wife painstakingly picked out, sitting in his garage. Harry Beisswenger's stands like a burnished brass pedestal in front of his new home. Both mailboxes are empty. On Tuesday, Edelman and Beisswenger had complained that the Ambler Post Office officials had no intention of filling them. Two days later, the post office seemed to have changed its mind. Edelman and Beisswenger are among about a dozen new homeowners in the 30- lot Dublin Glen, on Thornbury and Chaucer Roads in Upper Dublin Township, who thought, when they bought their homes, that mail would be delivered curbside.

Jonathan Dasani has added a chapter to his summer of dog-walking, babysitting, rock climbing, cycling, and tutoring. He's become a bookstore on wheels. Two days a week, he crisscrosses North Philadelphia, hauling a satchel packed with fiction and nonfiction that he distributes to children who tend to come from bookless homes. At $10 an hour, the Temple University physics-education major works for a novel program called Words on Wheels, started this year by a local organization called Tree House Books.

He might be the future of the Eagles' linebacking corps, but for now, he's finding his satisfaction playing on the coverage units. At times this season, rookie middle linebacker James Darling was expected to contribute mightily to the starting defense. The Eagles took Darling in the second round of the draft, projecting him to challenge for the starting middle linebacker spot immediately. He was supposed to replace '96 starter James Willis a few games into the season, but Darling found himself somewhat overwhelmed with the jump from college to the pros.

LANGHORNE Military deployment is hard on the soldiers who serve around the world and on the families back home who worry about them. So, this year, the Phillies made a big deal for Upper Darby native Joe Andreacchio and his girlfriend, Corrie Gorman. On Friday morning, three days after Andreacchio, 29, a sergeant with the 333d Engineering Company, Army Reserve, out of Reading, returned from a nine-month tour of Afghanistan, the Phillies paid him a special visit. As he chowed down on a breakfast of bagels and coffee at the house of Gorman's parents in Langhorne, Andreacchio was shocked to see a crowd gathering in the front yard.

JAY ARNOLD RARELY ate breakfast - except for coffee - and his first meal of the day would regularly be at 2 in the afternoon. He would scarf down whatever he could find to eat near his Center City advertising agency, and it was usually something really unhealthy. He would work late, go home exhausted, then eat a huge meal in an attempt to fuel his energy-deficient body. "I felt terrible," he said. Then Arnold discovered Zone Fresh Philly, a prepared-meal delivery service that adheres to the famed Zone Diet that has reportedly kept celebrities such as Jennifer Aniston, Madonna, Bill Clinton, Jessica Simpson, Matthew Perry and Winona Ryder fit, trim and feeling good.

There are great goal scorers and there are great setup men in the National Hockey League. Peter Forsberg prides himself as belonging in the latter category. "I always said if I had a better shot, I wouldn't have so many assists," said Forsberg, who leads the Flyers with 53 assists. Great goals are memorable. So are great assists. "I remember a lot of them, actually," Forsberg said. "If I had to mention one, it would be the one I had [with Colorado] against San Jose in the playoffs one year.

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - The International Space Station got a year's worth of groceries in a giant shopping cart Monday, courtesy of the astronauts on NASA's final shuttle flight. Astronauts Sandra Magnus and Douglas Hurley used the space station's hulking robot arm to hoist the bus-size container out of Atlantis' payload bay and attach it to the orbiting outpost. The canister - 21 feet long and 15 feet across - is jammed with nearly five tons of household goods, enough to keep the 245-mile-high station and its inhabitants going for another year.

Pennsylvania's history is painted on the walls of its post offices. From the shipyard scenes in Philadelphia and the bustling railroad shops in Renovo to the agricultural tradition in Selinsgrove and the Revolutionary War's Wyoming Massacre in Tunkhannock. The post office mural project touched all corners of Pennsylvania, and its birth in the 1930s can be traced to the advocacy of a Philadelphia painter. As President Franklin D. Roosevelt prepared to launch his New Deal recovery program at the height of the Depression, Philadelphian George Biddle urged his old prep-school pal to include opportunities for struggling artists.

With the season sitting on a knife's edge, the Eagles had two stark possibilities facing them yesterday: Win on the road, or start thinking about next year. And I don't mean about how the Phillies will cope without Pat Burrell. With a 2-3 record, the Eagles faced the need to win eight of the final 11 games just to contend for a playoff spot in the brutal NFC East. Brian Westbrook was watching the game at home with two broken ribs. Kevin Curtis was announced as a scratch just before the game.

"If she had any doubts, I would take those doubts away from her. She did a very great thing. She gave me to some very special people in my life.
