Former Philadelphia Police Officer Cheryl L. Stephens was sentenced Tuesday to three years' probation for lying to a federal grand jury during a loan-sharking investigation. Stephens, 48, a 10-year police veteran, gave false testimony about a $100 loan she got from another officer who was convicted in the same investigation. Prosecutor Anthony Wzorek told U.S. District Judge Darnell Jones that after initially making false statements to the grand jury, Stephens helped the government make its case against codefendant Gary Cottrell.

Former Police Lt. Grixbie Stephens, who was found not guilty last year of assaulting five Parking Authority employees, says he has run into a stone wall in his attempts to have the five arrested for assaulting him. The district attorney's office last week refused to approve a private criminal complaint against the five, insisting that Stephens instigated the slugfest at the city's impoundment lot at Delaware Avenue and Spring Garden Street...

It is no longer news that Winning Colors was only the third filly to win the Kentucky Derby. If she wins today's Preakness, she will become the fifth filly to win the second leg of the Triple Crown, the first since Nellie Morse, in 1924. And she would be the first to win two parts of the Triple Crown. Only 50 fillies have started in the Preakness, none since Genuine Risk in 1980. That Preakness was the most controversial in history. Codex, trained ironically enough by Wayne Lukas of Winning Colors fame, beat Genuine Risk on the track and later in a Maryland Racing Commission appeal hearing.

STEVE WOJDAK never asked the impossible. He might have been one of the city's and state's most effective lobbyists, but Steve Wojdak would not have considered asking a legislator or governor or anyone else for a favor that they wouldn't want to deliver. "He had a way of putting himself in your position," said former Gov. Ed Rendell. "He would never ask for anything untenable. He knew his stuff. "You appreciate someone who understands the conflicts you have and difficulties you have in getting things done.

They got through the awkward first date at Pod, when Alison confided to Steve that she slept every night with a stuffed white teddy bear from childhood. They endured a year of long-distance dating - he was a senior at Villanova while she was at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Va. - taking turns making the five-hour drive in his beaten Pontiac Sunfire or her Honda Civic. But the real test of their partnership came a year into marriage. They were celebrating Alison's birthday at a Hilton in New York, and she set her engagement ring - a diamond circled with sapphires, which Steve had given her in a carefully arranged proposal at the Race Street Pier - on the sink ledge while she showered.

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Considering that Stephen Strasburg had struggled in his first two starts, the Washington Nationals righthander could not have picked a better opponent than the Phillies to shake the early doldrums. In 11 career starts against the Phillies, Strasburg was 4-1 with a 2.09 ERA. He had 82 strikeouts in 69 innings. Last season, Strasburg was 2-0 with a 1.42 in five starts against the Phillies with the Nationals going 4-1 in those games. So when Strasburg started yesterday's game at Nationals Park by setting the Phillies down on eight pitches in a 1-2-3 first inning, he had to be feeling good about the way things were headed.

THERE WERE two things Stephen Johnson always was: a cop and an athlete. He served well in a number of administrative positions in his 35 years with the Philadelphia Police Department, but his heart was always out in the streets, mingling with the people and fellow cops.

"The Theory of Everything" is for everyone who finished Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time and felt they needed more detail about his marriage. "The Theory of Everything" is strangely circumspect about the science behind the physicist's innovative theories - men from academia leap to their feet in the movie and exclaim that Hawking (Eddie Redmayne) has "done it," but they never say what he's done. Something to do with a theory that would explain space, time and mass?

SOMETIMES, even the master of horror, Stephen King, needs a little inspiration, a certain something to get the bones rolling in his head. That's where John Mellencamp came in, and that's how their project, the musical "Ghost Brothers of Darkland County," took form - evolving from the standard cabin-in-the-woods idea into a supernatural yarn about brothers at odds, set in the South with a backdrop of Spanish moss and the blues. "I had never written a play, let alone a musical, but I figured we'll learn as we go along," King said in a recent interview with the Daily News . "I had done an outline, but once [Mellencamp]
