When Acelia, 9, is in the kitchen, she is creative, cheerful and energetic. "I'll make an everything salad," she'll say. Then she throws lettuce, cheese, tomatoes, celery and anything in her path in the bowl. She also makes corn bread and barbecue sauce. When it's mealtime, she always declares: "This is the best I ever had," and unless the food has a lid on it, she'll polish off the leftovers. Acelia lives in a group home with nine other children. She has lived in several foster homes.

Nose to lip. Lip to nose. Nose to lip. Chris Wyszynski was displaying his usually quick hands, but this was in the locker room, after Episcopal Academy had defeated La Salle, 66-50, in a Seagull Classic XVII semifinal at St. Joseph's Fieldhouse last night. One second, an ice pack was pressed against a gash at the bridge of Wyszynski's nose. The next, it was soothing a cut on his lip. "I think I need another ice pack," Wyszynski said, finally. Wyszynski, perhaps the hardest-working 6-2 center in high school basketball, always needs an ice pack.

The original Broadway production of "The Wiz," plagued by a slew of problems, nearly closed out of town. It changed directors and opened at New York's Majestic Theater early in January of 1975, managing to hang on by the skin of its teeth until a heavy ad-and-hype campaign plus word of mouth finally pulled it around. It ultimately picked up seven Tony Awards and ran for four years on Broadway. "The Wiz" has enjoyed a ridiculously healthy afterlife. It is revived with stunning regularity - a full-scale production last played here in March of 1984 - and this week it is back again, for much too brief a run at the Merriam.

Nine-year-old Sean O'Brien sums up the longevity of the Trapper Keeper notebook, which once again is among the supplies every cool student just had to bring back to school this year. "They hold more stuff," he says, in a tone that implies the answer is obvious. His mother chimes in: "The covers are cool. " The plastic, fold-over Trapper Keeper; "marble" tablets; and anything sporting the picture of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are among the most popular items kids prodded their parents into snatching up for another year of school.

If you put the hyper-ruminative power-pop of Fall Out Boy together with the singsong weed-centric hip hop of Wiz Khalifa, throw in fireworks, confetti blasters, and rude University of Pennsylvania rapper Hoodie Allen, you're either throwing a pricey frat party or you're running the Boys of Zummer tour that started at Camden's Susquehanna Bank Center on Wednesday. The comeback success of Fall Out Boy (FOB) goes like this: Songwriting/emo kings Patrick Stump (vocals/guitar) and bassist Pete Wentz (bass)

It names Khalifa, whose real name is Cameron Jibril Thomaz, two other songwriters, and several record companies and music publishers.

I DON'T THINK Doug Collins really had to say much of anything. His players already knew. The Sixers' turnaround from their 3-13 start has been predicated on defense. No, it's not the lockdown variety the Detroit Pistons and New York Knicks used to play. But in a season when scoring is up across the board, the Sixers, in relative terms, have become one of the better teams at slowing the opposition. Entering last night's game, the Sixers ranked eighth in the league in field-goal defense, holding opponents to 44.7 percent shooting.
