Last Saturday two deaf Mexicans walked into a police precinct station in New York City and told officers they and more than 50 other Mexicans, many similarly handicapped, had been smuggled into the country, physically abused and forced to peddle key chains and other trinkets in New York streets, subways and airports. They were given a pittance of the profits and confined in two houses in Queens, the Mexicans said. Mayor Rudolph W. Guiliani likened the situation to "bondage and virtual slavery."

A New York grand jury Thursday issued a 235-count indictment against Albert A. Terranova, the former owner of a scandal-ridden nationwide chain of vocational schools, for stealing government loan money that should have been refunded when students dropped out of his program. New York Atty. Gen. Robert Abrams said that Terranova, 52, had failed to pay as much as $4 million that should have been returned to students across the nation, who in turn are supposed to return the funds to lender banks.

New York City Mayor Rudolph W. Guiliani has exited the stage of the U.S. Senate race, and we will no longer be confronted with the drama of his medical treatment, the state of his marriage and his dates with his girlfriend. Hillary Rodham Clinton is all but elected, and she's planning her presidential campaign against George W. Bush in 2004, right? Not so fast.

Wilson came to the New Hampshire state Capitol on a brisk and sunny spring day where he told a group of celebrity-seasoned local reporters that he would be the third transplanted California governor since the '80s to make an appeal to Granite State voters.

DAVID GEFFEN offered sage advice to his Hollywood friends when it came to deciding whom to support in this year's presidential election: Follow your heart. But sometimes the heart sends mixed messages. Take Jon Peters, for example. The "Superman Returns" producer, former Sony Pictures chairman and onetime Barbra Streisand boyfriend is heading off to New York to work on his memoirs with Judith Regan. And while Peters is there, he plans to pay a visit to New York Mayor Michael R.

Once a year, St. Joseph's School, a Catholic elementary school in the heart of New York's impoverished Lower East Side, honors the Chinese New Year with a special Mass. Before the religious services, several students perform the traditional Chinese dragon dance. At the end, they honor their ancestors by burning incense, making offerings of oranges and bowing deeply. St. Joseph's has survived for seven decades by bending with the wind.

We were content to wait on the sidelines for an interview with Mayor Richard Riordan after his ice-skating lesson. Then His Honor invited us to take a twirl on the ice. We declined because a pratfall was in the offing. After demurring, we were properly shod and tugged onto the ice, whereupon the mayor and ice-skating instructor Gary C. Visconti escorted us around an endless rink. Afterward, we settled onto safer ground.
