PHILADELPHIA -- In mid-January, Shilie Turner, 17, a high school senior who was one of the nation's most promising young female track stars, vanished from her neighborhood in the Overbrook section.Her mother made a series of emotional public appeals for her safe return, but a month later Miss Turner's body was found, hidden by bushes in a local park. She had been beaten and then shot six times.Now her mother, Vivian King, 42, has been charged with her murder, and acquaintances of the family have been left to wonder whether they should have paid closer attention to Miss Turner's complaints of an unhappy home life, and to her loud quarrels with her mother.

COMES now the 350th anniversary of the birth of William Penn. In the spirit of neighborly love, and with real respect for this exemplar of the Religious Society of Friends, a message to the people of Pennsylvania: We hope thee'll have good weather for the ceremonies. (How it did rain, on the 350th anniversary of the Ark and the Dove, here below.)There are also going to be William Penn observances in Maryland, which after all was home to Quaker emigrants from England years before the Crown established Penn's Woods.

William Penn, a well-born Englishman and a Quaker, was granted a royal charter to found and govern a large, rich American colony that he named Pennsylvania. The son of a famous admiral was becoming a royal nuisance to King Charles II, who didn't care to keep jailing members of the new Religious Society of Friends. Peaceable in his dealings and treaties with American Indians, Penn was land-hungry when it came to settling the borders between Quaker Pennsylvania and Catholic Maryland. He journeyed to Maryland in December 1682 for a face-to-face conference with Charles Calvert, the third Lord Baltimore.

Sitting at a table in the lunchroom at Harford Friends School on a recent morning, a committee of pupils worked to solve the problem of the day: how to clean the kitchen after lunch and not miss recess time. In another room, another committee bandied about ideas for social events and fundraisers to hold during the spring. The number of pupils on both committees combined? Nine. The number of pupils in the whole school? Nine. "We have a small class here, but we get more attention, and the teachers have more time to be concerned about you," said 11-year-old Sarah Waldron.

A FRIEND tells me to always believe what you overhear from other passengers on a bus; this week I heeded that advice. A few weeks ago a bunch of Peabody Institute students climbed aboard a coach at 27th and St. Paul streets. They were carrying bound copies of the score of Cendrillon, Jules Massenet's version of Cinderella. The students were full of life and so intently happy to be performing. I eavesdropped on every word, of course, and discovered I was seated across from Dorothee, one of the overbearing stepsisters.

For many of us Marylanders, New Castle, Del., ranks as little more than a blip - an interstate exit you rush past on your way to Wilmington, Philadelphia or New York. And what a shame. With its cobblestone streets, sweeping views of the Delaware River, grassy commons and rich architectural heritage, New Castle's historic district ranks in my book as one of the finest in the mid-Atlantic region. It's got history: William Penn first set foot in North America here in 1682. It's got characters: Daniel Boone, the Marquis de Lafayette, Harriet Tubman and George Washington, chief among them.

Western track coach Jerry Molyneaux and his top runner, senior Mariama Gondo, have diametrically different explanations for the recent accomplishments of the Doves' 4 x 400 and 4 x 800 relay teams. Molyneaux likes to examine the practical reasons. "They are the best I have coached, because first of all, they came in with more natural speed than those in the past," said Molyneaux, who has led the Western track program for the past 15 years. "Also, I have more talented athletes in a group than in the past.

Few people in Maryland have seen Darian Kess lose. So few in the jam-packed gymnasium knew what the 112-pound Curley wrestler was up against in his title-bout against state champ Jordan Sianni of Delaware's Hodgson Vo-Tech in last night's 25-team, fifth-annual Hammond Invitational Kess (26-2) overcame a huge obstacle with a come-from-behind, 4-3 victory over Sianni, who twice defeated Kess last season. Last night, Kess trailed 2-0 early but went ahead for good, 4-2, with a buzzer-beating shoestring takedown at mat's edge in the second period.

In its long and storied history, Philadelphia has been everything from the nation's capital to nearly broke. It's seen incredible prosperity and agonizing racial strife, urban decay and a startling renaissance of late. Sounds like Baltimore in a lot of ways, doesn't it? Especially the renaissance part. With our own reputation as a must-see city growing, it's easy to forget that our nearby neighbor is also a major tourist attraction. One of the nation's most historic cities (think William Penn, Benjamin Franklin, Betsy Ross, Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell)

From its founding 300 years ago as William Penn's planned "greene countrie towne," Philadelphia has been a city meant to be lived in. The neighborhoods of Center City (what natives call "downtown" Philadelphia) and beyond all have their own quirks and personalities. You can amble from the oldest continuously occupied residential street in the country (Elfreth's Alley) past the most historic square mile in all of America, down to the retro-hip of South Street and the ethnic markets of South Philly.
