Trying to end a three-game skid, Eastern boys' basketball coach Dave Allen decided on a new offensive strategy and lineup for last night's game against Overbrook. Both provided overwhelming results as the Vikings routed Overbrook, 69-40, in an interdivision Olympic Conference game between aspiring Group 4 playoff teams. Eastern (6-6) at least must split its remaining four games to qualify for a Group 4 berth, and Overbrook (7-7) is in the same predicament. Teams with .500-or-better records on Feb. 6 will earn spots.

Bucks County Congressman James C. Greenwood has been chosen to lead the long-range planning team for Republicans in the House of Representatives, officials said yesterday. Greenwood, a former state legislator from Erwinna, fills a post vacated last month by New York Rep. Bill Paxon, who resigned after a failed attempt to depose House Speaker Newt Gingrich. Now in his third term in the House, Greenwood was already a member of the six-person strategic planning team, which Gingrich established in January to create a Republican message and strategy for the 2000 election and for the future.

If you can't beat 'em . . . sign 'em. That seems to sum up how the Toronto Blue Jays do things these days. Two years ago, the Blue Jays couldn't beat Jack Morris in the playoffs. So they signed him as a free agent. Last October, the Blue Jays couldn't beat Dave Stewart in the playoffs. So this winter, they signed him, too. Down the stretch last year, the Blue Jays gave up 31 hits one day to a Milwaukee lineup that was jump-started by the fiery Paul Molitor. So they signed the fiery Paul Molitor.

  IN A YEAR when we will elect a governor, it is worth asking: Does Pennsylvania have a comprehensive initiative to reduce gun violence in all of the state's major cities? Places like Chester, York, Reading and Allentown? Would Pennsylvania stand behind a strategy that has shown that violence can be dramatically reduced when community members and law enforcement join together to directly engage violent street groups and clearly communicate a message against violence? Focused Deterrence is a proven and comprehensive gun-violence reduction strategy developed by criminologist David Kennedy, of John Jay College of Criminal Justice, and we believe that it should be a component in the state's overall public-safety policy.

MANCHESTER, N.H. - The idea seemed sudden, immediate, the way so many of Chip Kelly's do. Truth is, the running of the bulls, the heart-in-your-throat panic-fest held annually the second week of July in Pamplona, Spain, was something the new Eagles coach always wanted to do, but never had the time - or for most of his 23-year college coaching career, the cash. But last summer, as the well-compensated head coach of the University of Oregon, neither was a problem. Not for him. And, by association, not for the tight-knit group of high school teachers, coaches and restaurant owners who have provided the grounding to his high-voltage profile and career, who have vicariously lived his rapid and improbable ascent from a college assistant coach earning $62,000 in 2006, to a man who just signed a 5-year, $32.5 million deal to be the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles.

Producing master plans to combat blight and revive rundown neighborhoods has practically become a cottage industry in Philadelphia. But comebacks, when they happen, rarely turn out the way planners script them. So it is with Point Breeze, which begins south of Washington Avenue on the west side of Broad Street, and extends well past Snyder Avenue. Once a working-class area of stalwart brick rowhouses, dramatically punctuated by cathedral-size churches that seem worthy of Rome, Point Breeze began coming apart at the seams with the '80s crack epidemic.

Watch it! The shambling, rambling wreck headed your way is going to ask you for money. What will you do? You can't escape them. Philadelphia's homeless - drunken, demented or just plain hungry - seem to be everywhere. There are an estimated 1,400 homeless people in the city, about a quarter of them mentally ill, and you can't walk far in some parts of town without having one of them ask you for help. Since you can't avoid them, some strategy must be decided on, and strategy is generally based on a point of view, an attitude.

By David D. Foster The war in Afghanistan is lost. Not in the military sense of winning versus losing. The war is lost in that it is missing - indefensibly absent from the debate surrounding the election for our new commander in chief. Under the current plan, there are 28 months of combat remaining-nearly 10 times the length of the Gulf War and more than half the total duration of World War II. As a nation we have been lulled into believing that the tough decisions have already been made and that we are on a two-year glide path to the end of the war. That is simply not the case.
