T-Boz and Chilli, the remaining members of TLC, will turn to television to find a third singer for their group. They'll do it through a UPN reality series. And they hope that when the eight-week competition is over, they'll have a performer to round out the act, which was left short when Lisa (Left Eye) Lopes was killed in a 2002 car crash. "We want to find someone with the right chemistry and magic to work with us," the duo said in a statement. "We have been blessed with great success, and this is a chance for our fans to join us as we give someone a chance in a lifetime opportunity to fulfill their dreams.

For some, the unwieldy gusts of autumn stir up images of renewed bursts of color and the silvery dew of frosty mornings. For others, the season merely marks the onset of a different kind of allergy. But for the 7,030 residents in the close-knit community of Palmyra, autumn means another thing: It's time to make the hoagies. What was created 26 years ago as a way to provide schoolchildren with a healthy lunch has evolved into a rite of passage for the Ladies Auxiliary of the borough's Independence Fire Company No. 1. Since 1964, the auxiliary has gathered at dawn every Wednesday, from October through May, to feed a small town and raise money for its 45-member volunteer fire company.

The mood must be chilly on TLC's current tour. Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, the most cantankerous member of the R&B threesome, is obviously still unclear on the concept of being a "team player. " Lopes, apparently not on speaking terms with group members Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas and Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins, throws down a challenge to the women in the pages of the new Entertainment Weekly. "Let it be understood that I am interested in making multimillion-dollar business deals," Lopes huffs in the mag. "It seems that my two group members are not. This poses a serious conflict.

Curtains for TLC? Could be. The First Union Center show on Tuesday for the Atlanta-based trio of Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins, Rozanda "Chili" Davis and Philadelphia native Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes may well be one of the group's final performances. Since the October kick-off of the tour for the four-million-selling, six-Grammy-nominated Fanmail (LaFace/Arista) - which, in the male-loser bashing "No Scrubs," includes the latest in a career's worth of terrific pop-R&B-hip-hop-soul hits - the trio has been carping in the press as if the end were nigh.

We don't expect Britney Spears will be sending them a congratulatory note any time soon, but the singers of TLC have come out against breast implants. "We represent for the small-breasted girls," says Rozanda "Chili" Thomas. "I was that girl in ninth grade whose breasts never came. "Hands up for the small-breasted crew!" she cheers in the Sept. 4 TV Guide. The group is so opposed to the idea of young women having unnecessary surgery to emulate "perfect" celebrities, Thomas says, that TLC addresses the issue in their latest video.

Got a green thumb, a hose and some shears? Pennsylvania needs someone to take care of its palm trees. Yes, palm trees - a dozen of them tucked into the "conservatory" and cafeteria areas of the Capitol's east wing, the $124-million addition to the Capitol that was built a few years ago. State officials are searching for someone to maintain the dozen gangly palms and a smattering of other flowering plants and foliage for the next three...

When it comes to television, everybody wants a piece of the O.J. Simpson story. ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox have all had their shots, in news, talk and even entertainment formats. The Simpson case also had a major impact on major cable players like CNN, Court TV, CNBC, E! and, to a lesser extent, BET. Well, it's not over. This weekend, the Simpson case filters its way down to The Learning Channel (a sister operation of the Discovery Channel), which is devoting two prime-time hours to two one-hour specials about it. One is at least arguably worth your time.

The kiss was replaced by the dis. Michael Jackson, who at last year's MTV Video Music Awards offered up an unconvincing newlywed liplock with Lisa Marie Presley, last night performed what amounted to a glorified commercial for "HIStory," his greatest-hits package. Ever the dutiful wife, Lisa Marie applauded with all the excitement of a patient waiting to get her teeth scaled. So maybe Lisa Marie was bored that hubby Michael could only get Slash and not Paul McCartney to pitch in on his medley-fired song-and-dance extravaganza at Radio City Music Hall.

Tuesday is the busiest day of the week at the Haddon Township High School library. But not all the students are there to check out books. Around the room, students sit in four to six pairs, bending over books and talking quietly. Each pair includes an academically strong student who is helping the other as part of a school tutoring program. The program, called TLC (for Tutoring and Learning Center), has been so successful that school officials have extended it through the spring.

'TIS HALLOWEEN week. Time to carve pumpkins, toast seeds, give kids who don't even bother to wear costumes artificially colored, high-fructose corn syrup in fun sizes - and wait to see which celebs act most inappropriately.

* AMISH MAFIA. 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, Discovery Channel. Moves to 9 p.m. Wednesdays the following night.   "THE AMISH church denies the existence of the Amish Mafia," reads the disclaimer at the beginning of the Discovery Channel's latest "reality" venture, "Amish Mafia. " So it must be real, right? Because why else would the TV-shunning sect bother to deny its existence? If you're OK with that logic - or couldn't get enough of TLC's equally contrived "Breaking Amish" - you're going to love "Amish Mafia," which is from the same producers as the TLC hit and purports to expose the doings of a small group of men in Lancaster County who allegedly grease the buggy wheels for Amish who run into problems they can't handle themselves.

The house sits almost hidden and comes slowly into view after a turn off Bordentown's main street. Still faithful to its 1750 farmhouse roots and surrounded by towering trees, this is a dwelling that is welcoming rather than grand, friendly rather than fancy. The home that Bonnie Goldman, presiding judge of the Municipal Courts of Burlington County, and her husband, cardiologist Steven Lederman, bought in 1999 needed more than a little updating. But an engineer had declared it sound, and they took the plunge.
