AFTER FLUNKING as a hockey player at tiny Merrimack College, I received an offer from the school's public relations director: Travel with the team, write stories about those Warriors for the local newspapers and the program, get a work-study, paid, tax-free, $60 a week. He launched a 30-year career, that guy, so the next time you want to tell me I shouldn't be in the business, tell him instead. All his fault. I made a lot of friends with that $60. Players borrowed from it to eat, mainly, but it financed their dates occasionally, too. And yeah, beer.

After decades when paying college athletes was thought to violate the spirit of amateurism, the enormous television revenue generated by sports - football and basketball in particular - and the long hours of work by the players have changed the debate. NCAA president Mark Emmert now supports a stipend for athletes to cover costs beyond tuition, books, and fees, and both coaches in Monday's BCS national championship game between No. 1 Notre Dame and No. 2 Alabama spoke in support of the idea in the days before the game.

Two years ago, Richard Olyveira, 22, was a member of a street gang in Providence, R.I., that, he said, "didn't do nice things. " "I was very unhappy and frustrated with myself," Olyveira said. Following the advice of a friend, Olyveira decided to join City Year, a program that pays young people a stipend for community service. Part of the national service program AmeriCorps, City Year is supported through government, foundation and business grants. It began in 1988 and operates in nine U.S. cities.

Volunteer firefighters get paid here. It may sound weird, yet it's true. But under a new plan announced to the public last night by the Board of Fire Commissioners, that's going to change. Volunteers will be strictly volunteers and will receive a small stipend to cover work expenses and responding to fires. It will be a considerable change for most of the volunteers, who have been paid anywhere from $5 to $9 an hour for their work. The new staffing plan will go into effect Aug. 7. Some of the volunteers are upset - those who have gotten used to the extra money, and those who say they are just tired of being pushed around by the district.

The amount of the stipend will be determined by the school board at its March 2 meeting, according to Superintendent Nelson Maloney.

Mayor Street yesterday reversed course and announced that the city would immediately begin paying stipends to city employees called away for military service. Previously, the city's policy had been that employees on military service could only collect their $500-a-month stipends when they returned to their city jobs. There had been complaints that this policy, which affected about 260 employees, imposed an unnecessary hardship on the employees and their families at a time when they were already making sacrifices because of the national emergency occasioned by the Sept.

Rallying under a red banner proclaiming "Teaching is Work, Research is Work," Temple University graduate assistants yesterday launched a unionization drive in an effort to get larger stipends, free health insurance and limits on teaching loads. If the fledgling Graduate Student Employees Association achieves union recognition, Temple would become one of only a handful of universities nationwide where teaching and research assistants are represented in collective bargaining. Speakers at a rally yesterday next to the Samuel Paley Library on campus said they had tried talking to university officials about their grievances - including a typical living stipend of only $6,500 a year - but had been rebuffed.

WASHINGTON TWP. A split that has pitted the Washington Township council president against his two fellow Republican council members for months has manifested itself in a renewed fight over compensation for the local Municipal Utilities Authority board. Republican Councilman Chris Del Borrello introduced an ordinance last week to end the annual stipends given to the seven board members, who oversee water and sewerage operations. Council President Giancarlo D'Orazio opposed the measure, alongside the two Democratic members, and for the fourth time in months, it was rejected by a 3-2 vote.

THE FIVE POWER conferences of college sports want more flexibility in providing financial support to athletes. A major reason they lack that freedom in the first place is other NCAA members have feared widening the wealthiest programs' competitive advantage. Now NCAA president Mark Emmert and the leaders of those behemoth leagues must convince schools with fewer resources that giving them greater autonomy is in the best interest of college athletics. "What's really hard in these kinds of things is for people to vote themselves less political authority," Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany . "They don't do that.

After a marathon meeting that went past midnight and included an impassioned 15-minute parting speech by departing Superintendent Bessie LeFra Young, the Camden school board unanimously approved deputy superintendent Reuben Mills to fill in at least temporarily as interim superintendent. The board chose Mills to take over when Young leaves Friday after a leading candidate for the interim job withdrew his name from consideration Tuesday morning. Mills will receive a $1,250 monthly stipend, on top of his $160,000 salary, to fill the top spot of the struggling school district.

THE NCAA IS putting its $2,000 stipend on hold. The governing body said yesterday the number of schools seeking an override had reached 125 - the necessary number to suspend the rule until it can be reconsidered by the Division I Board of Directors at January's NCAA convention. The board passed legislation in October to give some athletes an additional $2,000 toward the full cost-of-tuition, money that would go beyond tuition, room and board, books and fees. Some schools have expressed opposition because they believe it violates the NCAA's philosophy on amateur sports.

The NCAA board of directors promised a busy meeting this week in Indianapolis - and it delivered Thursday with a series of significant changes. The board adopted a much-anticipated proposal that will allow universities to boost their athletic scholarships by as much as $2,000 to cover the full cost of attendance. It also set higher classroom standards that could keep some prominent teams out of the postseason and force incoming freshmen to spend an "academic redshirt" year on the sideline.

To the New Jersey comptroller, the annual $700 clothing allowance for thousands of non-uniformed, white-collar state employees is an outrageous perk that should be eliminated. It will cost the state $3.2 million this fiscal year, doesn't require workers to produce receipts, and far exceeds similar allowances in Pennsylvania and other states. To union officials, the stipend is a reasonable, negotiated benefit for employees whose work could soil or damage clothing. Its criticism by the Office of State Comptroller, in a report released Wednesday, "is just a way of being antiunion," said Hetty Rosenstein, state director of the Communications Workers of America, the largest public workers union, representing 40,000 state employees.
