Most people lump "Next Stop Wonderland" together with romantic destiny comedies like "Sleepless in Seattle" and "Sliding Doors," but it also shares important characteristics with another hit comedy. With its portrait of an eminently eligible young woman walking through a minefield of dreadful suitors, "Next Stop Wonderland" is also part of the emerging Single Woman Follies genre that includes "How Stella Got Her Groove Back" and the more popular "There's Something About Mary. " The latter stars Cameron Diaz as a bubbly blonde physician pursued by a series of pathetic and devious men, whom she fends off with the same chirpy enthusiasm.

Imagine a household of eight youngsters under the age of 18, six of whom play soccer, and you have a picture of the Handforth family in West Bradford. "Soccer balls, cleats, shin guards everywhere," recalled Winnie Handforth, the mother of all these soccer siblings. "We even live in a wooded area, and there are soccer balls everywhere. You walk in our woods, you're stepping over soccer balls. " Over the last several years, the chaos has thinned out for the Handforths, as four of the children have graduated from Bishop Shanahan and gone to college, and the two youngest aren't entirely engrossed in the sport.

Erin (Hope Davis) and Andre (Jose Zuniga) meet in a hospital - she's a nurse, he's getting a shot - and discover a shared passion for bossa nova. He's a charming Brazilian, she's a pretty Bostonian recently dumped by her flaky activist boyfriend. So Andre tells Erin how his country's music can be sad and happy at the same time, how that is its special beauty. And that's what's special, too, about Next Stop Wonderland: this low-key tale of a woman searching for love - or for the strength to live contentedly without love - is sad and happy in equal doses.

Little Erin Jacobs wears a plastic shield over her abdomen, takes three organ-transplant anti-rejection drugs, and constantly gets checkups. Despite these and other precautions, the kidney that Erin - who lost both of her own - received from her father could fail at any time.

Consumer advocate Erin Brockovich and a New York-based law firm will investigate the drinking water contamination near former naval air bases outside Philadelphia, they said Tuesday.

When Erin Donohue lined up to run the 1,000 meters at the Diamond League Grand Prix in New York on June 13, she was not considered a major force in middle distance track - at least not anymore.

Major track meets, world championships and competitions had gone on without her for years. At 32, she was 13 years older than the youngest person on the line, 19-year-old Mary Cain.
