Hatfield had survived countless scares through the course of the American Legion baseball season this summer, but could not dodge the many threats of Rockland County, N.Y., last night in the semifinals of the Mid-Atlantic Region tournament. Hatfield's historic run ended with a 4-1 loss at Bear Stadium in Boyertown, Berks County. Rockland County (57-12) will play for the tournament championship - and a berth in the Legion World Series - against Richmond, Va., tonight at 7. Hatfield, the Pennsylvania state champion from Montgomery County, finished 31-8.

They are not for every household perhaps, but carousel figures always do well at auction - particularly with the spread of theme parks. That's one of the possible buyers that the Alderfer Auction Co. in Hatfield is hoping to attract when it offers four carousel horses at its weekly sale Thursday. In February in Tampa, Fla., Disney World paid $44,500 for a salesman's sample carousel horse made by Marcus Illions & Sons of Coney Island, according to the Weekly Antiques and Auctions News.

Hatfield coach Scott McClay had to scratch his head and wonder what team he was watching last night in the Mid-Atlantic Region American Legion baseball tournament. Because it certainly did not look like the same team that captured the Pennsylvania state title last weekend. Hatfield lost to Dover, Del., 15-8, in the first game of the eight-team, round-robin regional at Bear Stadium in Boyertown, Berks County. The loss placed Hatfield (29-7) in a precarious spot today when it faces Beckley, W. Va., at 7:30 p.m. Hatfield has not lost two straight this season.

In the 1930s, movie houses in North Penn attracted people to the infant entertainment medium by raffling off small worthless parcels of land. Movie lots, they were called. They became a headache for Montgomery County's Tax Claim Bureau, which ended up taking possession of the tiny abandoned plots, many in Hatfield between Orvilla and Welch Road. But having been a two-bit promotion and a bureaucratic aggravation, the land may yet serve a useful purpose. The North Penn School District has quietly accumulated some of the lots over the last 20 years, said the district's attorney, Charles Potash.

In Hatfield Borough lately, council members don't seek office. It seeks them. Folks aren't exactly clamoring to hold office, officials found out during the last month while trying to fill two council vacancies. But they filled them nonetheless, most recently with the swearing-in Wednesday night of 10-year resident Wayne Donahue to replace James Brucia, who resigned May 20, citing time constraints. Like most residents, Donahue, who sells construction equipment for Trico Equipment Co. of Freehold, N.J., hasn't watched borough government very closely, he said.

Michael F. Murphy barely knew the man in the car who had a shotgun propped tightly under his own chin. But he knew that he had to talk him out of pulling the trigger. Police had the car surrounded, their guns drawn. "I was saying to myself, 'Oh, God, please give me the right words,' " Murphy said. "At the same time . . . I'm getting (ready) because if I think I'm losing the discussion, I could knock the gun away. . . . If it had come to that, he could have taken me, too. " The Hatfield Township police sergeant had been awakened that summer night five years ago because the man who was threatening to kill himself desperately wanted to talk with him. Today, Murphy says the incident is evidence of the life-threatening situations that even suburban police officers must face, and it is just one of many complex crises he has seen in 30 years on the Hatfield force.

Students scooped up invertebrates from the creek, simulated rain with spray bottles, and used fruit punch to follow the path of pesticides in a hands-on program developed by the North Penn Water Authority in Lansdale. The authority, in partnership with the Peace Valley Nature Center in New Britain Township, worked this month with seventh graders from St. Marie Goretti School in Hatfield. The fall program concluded last week with students from the Central Bucks School District visiting the nature center.

In his sentencing hearing Monday, Walid Mitwalli, 38, who pleaded guilty to stabbing his wife, Mona, to death in their Hatfield home three years ago, asked for leniency. "I have nothing left," said Mitwalli, who was in tears as he spoke before Montgomery County Court Judge Steven O'Neil. "All I can ask is for some mercy. " But Mitwalli did not receive mercy from O'Neil, who sentenced him to up to 40 years in prison - the maximum for third-degree murder. "You had an extreme indifference to human life," O'Neil told the defendant in delivering his sentence.

On Easter Sunday, after the sugar crash from too much candy, dinner traditionally revolves around a big, glossy ham. It may look picture-perfect as a holiday centerpiece, but if that ham came from the supermarket, its origin story is probably not so pretty. Luckily, there are options in locally produced hams with backstories you can feel good about. Ember Crivellaro, who runs Country Time Farm in Berks County with her husband, Paul, wants those who buy her hams to know what kind of life the pigs had. Because pictures speak louder than words, she carries a small collection of photographs in her wallet.

Most anniversary tours are superfluous victory laps, brandishing a faded brass ring once seized and sometimes lost. But on Monday night, when Juliana Hatfield took the stage of the Boot & Saddle on the first of a two-night stand, to perform her 1993 album Become What You Are , it felt like something both more profound and less complicated, not a triumphant boast but a simple statement: I'm still here . Or rather We , since the tour...

For decades farmers have tended the land on the Bishop Tract in Hatfield Township, open space since it was sold by a land speculator 271 years ago. The acres along Orvilla Road in Montgomery County produced fruits and vegetables. An old silo and farmhouse still stand. But Keystone Fellowship Montgomeryville, a growing church in Montgomery Township, has plans for the property that would transform the 43-acre landscape. It is a potential change that worries some residents and township officials.

AFTER A VIDEO leaked of Solange Knowles punching and kicking Jay Z as if they were in a steel-cage match, the first round of rumors claimed that Solange was mad because her sister's hubby hadn't done more to help her recording career. The second round of rumors, however, better explained the reason Beyonce stood like a wax figure during the bout and later rode off with Solange instead of Jay. Seems Solange was sticking up for her big sister. Seems Solange thought Jay Z was paying a little too much attention to designer Rachel Roy at the Met Gala.

Mark Huzzard knocked on the door of the Hatfield trailer around 3 a.m. Tuesday. "Sheriff's Department," he said firmly. Huzzard, a 41-year-old Montgomery County deputy, was easy to hear on the quiet, dark street. After a few seconds, the door opened, and he and other officers entered. Inside the trailer, a muffled conversation ensued. "I know how much I owe," a woman protested loudly. Then the door opened again, and the deputies led Kathleen Johns, clad in sweatpants, a sweatshirt, and handcuffs, to a waiting van. Johns, 54, the mother of two adult children, owes $20,000 in long-delinquent child-support payments.

  HOLLYWOOD - Sometimes, even an Emmy for outstanding supporting actress in a TV drama series, an impressive list of directorial credits, and a home in Hollywood aren't enough. At least apparently not when you have an entrepreneurial itch, as did actress/director Melanie Mayron, a Philadelphia native best known for her role in the late-1980s television hit thirtysomething . She has scratched that itch, forming Mayron's Goods, a natural and organic skin-care products company with a decidedly local and personal connection: The Hatfield chemist behind the formulations is her father.
