Kelly Patrick is taking her hockey stick to the beach. The Moorestown senior will attend the University of California at Berkeley and play field hockey for the Golden Bears this fall. Patrick chose California over Michigan State and Georgetown. Last fall, Patrick was a key component in the Quakers' offense as she delivered nine goals from the right wing. Moorestown went 19-1-1, and its only loss was a 1-0 decision to Shore Regional in the South Jersey Group 2 tournament.

Penn couldn't shake the rust from a monthlong layoff in its opening game of the NCAA baseball playoffs yesterday.

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - Hagen Danner homered and struck out 12, and Huntington Beach, Calif., spoiled the Pennsylvania party at the Little League World Series with a 2-0 victory over the hometown heroes from Clinton County on Thursday night. California will face Billings, Mont., in the U.S. final Saturday. Montana beat California, 1-0, in seven innings Wednesday night. Pennsylvania was eliminated. Danner was the biggest reason with a stellar night on the mound, leaving in the sixth because of Little League's pitch-count rules.

William W. Scranton 3d, the Republican who narrowly lost the election for governor last fall, has taken the advice of Horace Greeley and gone west. Scranton, 40, who served as lieutenant governor for eight years until January, started this week as chief operating officer of a California mail- order business that he said sells "high-quality garden tools and other related garden items. " "It was an offer I thought was terrific and so I took it," said Scranton. His wife, Coral, who is employed as an assistant manager at WITF, Harrisburg's public television station, and the couple's three children still live in Hummelstown, near Harrisburg.

Powerball's jackpot is on a faster trajectory, and California could be the cause. Two weeks ago, the most populous state in the union joined Powerball, and immediately set a record, selling $8,408,180 million worth of tickets in its first three days. That's "an all-time record for any new Powerball member," according to a California Lottery news release. More sales mean faster growing jackpots. A week ago, the grand prize was $80 million, and the last six times that happened, five times it rose by the minimal increment, first to $90 million, then to $100 million.

From the rational Atlantic coastline, California's gubernatorial recall seems easily dismissed as just more left-coast lunacy. Only the home of Hollywood could muster an Oct. 7 election roster featuring: the Terminator, a porn purveyor, a grown-up child star, an SUV-hating columnist, a billboard bimbo, a one-time baseball commissioner, and a score of citizens who collected 65 signatures and $3,500 to get on the ballot. Conventional political candidates dropped like flies in a week of "Who's In/Who's Out" talk show tattle.
