The judge said the subway robbery victim was "justified" in shooting to death a man who had stolen his $235 pair of designer sunglasses last year. "I think he reasonably believed he had to protect his life," said Common Pleas Judge Lisa A. Richette yesterday in acquitting Larry Collins, 26, of murder and manslaughter charges. "He had just been the victim of a crime, and I know the (shooting) victim was carrying a gun," she said. Because Collins, of Brown Street near 41st, did not have a license to carry the gun used to kill Antwine Murphy, 18, on Nov. 25, 1989, Richette found Collins guilty of a weapons offense.

The fancy sunglasses would have to come off, snarled the kid who was pointing a toy gun as though it was real. But the teen sporting the $200 designer shades wouldn't hand them over. Not without a fight. So fighting is what it came to yesterday morning at Point Breeze Avenue and McClellan Street in South Philadelphia. Actually, police said, it was a duel. While the teen who wanted to steal the glasses had a toy gun, the boy who wore the glasses had a real gun. The toy gun wielder, Kareem Dandy, 16, of Ringgold Street near Morris, lost his life.

Sunglasses. They aren't just for sun glare - or for summer - anymore. They're a fashion accessory. And they're everywhere. Think about it. Have you ever seen so many sunglasses around? Fashion models wear them strolling down the runway. Athletes wear them while giving interviews. Actors and actresses wear them in films. Joe Camel wears them on his billboards. Did you like the specs in "Waiting to Exhale"? Made by an Italian firm called Exotica. How about John Travolta's eyewear in "Broken Arrow"?

It seems obvious: sunglasses should protect your eyes from the sun. In reality, it's not quite that simple. Sunlight is harmful to the eyes, health experts agree, but they haven't reached a consensus on which of its components ought to be screened out. Everyone agrees that ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation should be screened out because it is a primary cause of age-related cataracts. More controversial are the roles of ultraviolet A (UVA), a longer wavelength of invisible radiation, and of blue light, the first wavelength in the visible spectrum (the rainbow of hues that makes up white light)

Last winter when Dad's vision started to get increasingly cloudy and parking the car in the garage wasn't quite as precise as it used to be, he told me that he suspected he had cataracts. Indeed, he did. This spring before his 66th birthday, Dad had two cataract surgeries. Now he sees almost 20/20 - better than he had seen in 20 years. He purchased milder prescription glasses, even though he really needs them only for reading. He also bought sunglasses with UV protection, which will protect his eyes from the dangers of ultraviolet light.

After six years in business, Jason Wildman had become exhausted customizing, importing and distributing sunglasses with the names and logos of about 300 professional sports teams and colleges. "Keeping track of inventory was a nightmare," said the Rydalresident, who ran the company, Ultimate Vision, in Huntingdon Valley from 1992 until last year. So Wildman, now 30, sold off his low-end sports-sunglasses company in September, and began devoting all his time to promoting a brand of high-end sports sunglasses called Native Eyewear.

DAN HERSHBERG, 31, from Northern Liberties, is a diehard Philly sports fan who landed a job right out of college, creating highlight clips for ESPN's late-night shows. But after two years, he was pining for his hometown. "Bristol, Connecticut, is not a place where you want to spend your 20s," Hershberg said. "I'd get out of work at 2 or 3 a.m. when there's not much opportunity to socialize in Bristol. I hadn't seen a living, breathing woman in a long time. " Hershberg had an epiphany.

Nothing like starting a reality show thinking you're about to die. Michelle Lamelza was in a helicopter nearing Fiji's remote Yasawa Islands, when the competitors were told to take a flying leap into the Pacific - without shark repellent. But Michelle, who spent her early years in Northeast Philadelphia, just laughed as she reflected on three grueling days far from civilization - with no food and only one bottle of water to drink - trying to find a hidden briefcase containing $100,000.

DEAR ABBY: I just celebrated my 80th birthday at a party with 22 of my dearest friends. I also invited my daughter-in-law, "Sydney," and her mother. The problem is, I didn't invite my 8-year-old granddaughter. I explained that I felt she wouldn't enjoy herself with all of us senior women. Sydney disagreed. I then suggested perhaps it would be better if I had a dinner party for the entire family the following evening. In retaliation for my not inviting my granddaughter, Sydney declined the dinner invitation.

The sunglasses are not an attempt to look cool. Or even kool. For the next few days, however, Jeff O'Reilly might want to wear them nonstop, thus giving himself a better chance of fending off autograph hounds. Many guys are familiar with hitting home runs in Roxborough's cozy John Boyce Field, which is used by Roman Catholic High for baseball games. O'Reilly smacked one yesterday, in fact, and it raised his high school career total, both the field and overall variety, to two. Ah, but the 6-2, 235-pound righthander, a senior at Cardinal O'Hara, also pitched five innings of no-hit ball and wound up allowing two safeties while - drum roll, please - posting a 4-0 Catholic Red shutout.
