Middle Township's Tom Feraco has won 491 games and three state titles, but even the best coaches are sometimes second-guessed. It was Feraco who was questioning himself after his strategy of running the clock down didn't pay off last night. Top-seeded Haddonfield beat No. 2 Middle Township, 41-40, at Washington Township for the South Jersey Group 2 boys' basketball championship. The Bulldogs (25-2) advanced to tomorrow's state Group 2 semifinal at Perth Amboy, where they will play New Brunswick, the Central Jersey champion.

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.

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.

There is just no avoiding the fact that for the next president to defend the country effectively, he will need to decide that [missile defense] is his first priority, and that matters such as avoiding other nations' envy come further down the list. He will have to decide that he is first and foremost, in political scientist Walter Russell Mead's terms, a Jacksonian (ensuring that we can defend ourselves with complete effectiveness), and only secondarily a Wilsonian (working toward an ideal international legal regime)
