One day after Alexandra Stevenson was beaten in the DFS Classic, her outspoken mother was in trouble with the WTA yesterday in Birmingham, England. Samantha Stevenson took exception to a WTA display of newspaper reports, most of which related to her daughter's defeat by Nathalie Tauziat on Thursday. Stevenson ripped down the articles - an action that could lead to a WTA Tour reprimand for "vandalizing club property. " She had ruffled the WTA earlier in the tournament by asking a pianist to stop playing in a hospitality tent during her daughter's second-round win over Anne-Gaelle Sidot.

Chuck Person stopped in the 76ers' locker room after the Indiana Pacers' 124-113 loss last night to give ex-college teammate Charles Barkley fair warning about the upcoming NBA playoffs. But before he could get the words out, Barkley floored him with a relentless series of verbal jabs. "What'd you shoot tonight?" Barkley said. "That must have been an all- time low for you. " "Well," Person said, trying to be diplomatic, "you just played good defense. " Barkley asked Person what he would be doing during the second week of the NBA playoffs, which begin next week.

To understand what the arts can do for a place like Woodbury, visit the city's "American Quilt" bridge. The once-drab span near downtown was transformed into a beauty spot 15 years ago, thanks to the late painter Narcissa Weatherbee's grassroots mural-making project. "People would be walking by and say, 'How nice,' " says Weatherbee's collaborator, printmaker Doris Nogueira-Rogers. "We'd say, 'Do you want to paint?' It was all about community participation. " With its intricate, lavishly colored panels depicting Woodbury's history and heritage, the 101-year-old bridge on Hunter Street still delights the eye. But Nogueira-Rogers and other artists involved in similar but more recent ventures - sponsored by what has been renamed the FAF (Fall Arts Festival)

Just when Mayor Nutter thought his tiffs with unions were over, a $2.88 million tug-of-war has broken out. With the ink fresh on AFSCME District Council 33's contract, leaders of the smaller municipal union, District Council 47, are asking that their members receive the same signing bonus the 9,000 members of D.C. 33 received for ratifying their contract last week: $2,800. That is $800 more than the bonus D.C. 47 negotiated for its members, about 3,600 white-collar employees, when they ratified their contract in March.

ATLANTIC CITY - A judge has ruled that Atlantic City's mayor overstepped his authority when he ordered police not to conduct regular patrols of casino parking garages. Deputy Police Chief Ernest Jubilee had assured the public of a police presence in the garages after a carjacking in September left one tourist dead and his girlfriend seriously injured. Mayor Lorenzo Langford then issued an executive order banning the patrols, which he said siphoned manpower that should be spent protecting the city's residents.

Sex sells, but so does schadenfreude. The public's appetite for bad news concerning the rich and famous is nearly impossible to sate. The more embarrassing the tale, the more it tends to interest people. According to the New York Times, TMZ, Radar, and other scandal peddlers pull in more than $3 billion annually. It took me a while to digest that figure at first, partly because I've never been an Access Hollywood type of guy. I don't care which Dancing With the Stars entrant is two-stepping outside his marriage, and I don't spend much time thinking about former bodybuilders/politi- cians who father children out of wedlock.

NEW YORK - Dick Ebersol, who made NBC the TV home of the Olympics for more than two decades, will watch someone else run the network's coverage of next year's Summer Games. The powerful TV executive behind shows from "Saturday Night Live" to "Sunday Night Football" has resigned as head of NBC Sports in a contract dispute with his new bosses at Comcast. The break was sudden and unexpected: Ebersol got a promotion when Comcast took over NBC Universal earlier this year and appeared Monday at a presentation NBC gave to advertisers in New York, tossing footballs from the stage and talking about coverage of the 2012 London Olympics.
