Actress Elizabeth Taylor, plagued with painful arthritis in her hip, will undergo hip replacement surgery next month. Taylor "has been in pain for some time" with the ailment, according to her publicist. Taylor, 61, was hospitalized at St. John's Hospital and Health Center in Santa Monica, Calif., on Jan. 14 for tests on her hip. She left abruptly when the deadly Jan. 17 earthquake forced evacuation of the hospital. After the operation, Taylor probably will be hospitalized five to seven days, and then will require crutches or a walker during a recovery period of about eight weeks before progressing to a cane.

Golfing great Jack Nicklaus, 59, had hip-replacement surgery yesterday in Boston and will be on crutches for the next six weeks. He will miss the Masters for the first time in 40 years and possibly the U.S. Open in June, but the doctor who operated on him said there was no reason to believe Nicklaus would not be competitive again. Nicklaus, winner of a record 18 professional majors, had a degenerative left hip that had troubled him for years. He tried to avoid hip-replacement surgery with a rigorous exercise routine, but finally yielded when the hip began to affect his quality of life as well as his game.

Penn State coach Joe Paterno was released from a State College hospital yesterday, 2 days after undergoing hip replacement surgery.

Bucks County Commissioner Mark S. Schweiker said yesterday that he would undergo hip-replacement surgery in two weeks and would be unable to participate in board decisions for much of April and May. Schweiker usually joins fellow Republican Andrew L. Warren, the board's chairman, in voting on county matters ranging from tax increases to choosing professional consultants. But court decisions prevent public officials such as Schweiker from voting during absences, County Solicitor Peter A. Glascott said.

BO KNOWS jury duty. Bo Jackson, former major league baseball player, NFL running back and subject of "Bo Knows" Nike commercials, served as a juror this week in Wheaton, Ill. "He was very laid-back," DuPage County jury administrator Daniel Amati said of Jackson, who served under his real name, Vincent E. Jackson. "He just came in and did what he was supposed to do. " Attorney Michael Maher, one of the lawyers in the personal-injury case, said he thought Jackson - who had hip-replacement surgery - would be a perfect fit for the jury.

Nolan Ryan, on the disabled list because of ailing legs, said yesterday he was getting better and doesn't think the injuries indicate the end of his career is near. Ryan, in his 26th major-league season, is on the disabled list for the fourth time since 1990. "I look at it from the standpoint that it's more of a nagging, nuisance- type thing," Ryan said. Ryan was examined Wednesday by Lewis Yocum, an orthopedic specialist in Inglewood, Calif., who told him to go home and work out in a swimming pool.

Golfer Jack Nicklaus will undergo hip replacement surgery later this month, likely keeping him out of the Masters Tournament for the first time since 1958. Nicklaus, winner of a record 18 majors on the U.S. PGA Tour, said the degeneration of his arthritic left hip had hampered his game in recent years. Nicklaus, who turns 59 on Jan. 21, said in a statement that he was exercising to rehabilitate the hip and has felt stronger over the past several months. "When I feel strong enough and able to play golf at a competitive level, I will continue to play tournament golf," he said.

MILFORD, Pa. - He eluded police for nearly two months, and has been jailed for three more. But the death-penalty trial for Eric Frein could still be more than a year away. On Thursday, Frein pleaded not guilty to charges he plotted the ambush that killed one state trooper and wounded a second last September in nearby Blooming Grove. It was his first court appearance since prosecutors officially declared they would seek the death penalty against him. In a brief court appearance via video feed from the Pike County prison, the self-styled survivalist remained expressionless and responded politely to County Court Judge Gregory H. Chelak.

ON THE SURFACE, it might look as if what Rowan University pitcher Richie Suarez has overcome was about defying the odds or embracing a challenge to do the near impossible. In reality, the motivation for this 3 1/2-year journey was simpler than that. The 14 months of chemotherapy Suarez endured to treat the high-risk, pre-B, acute lymphoblastic leukemia he had been diagnosed with on Aug. 27, 2011, only 2 days before he was to enter Rowan as a freshman, had ravaged the body that had produced an outstanding pitching career at Eastern Regional High School.

Most of the Eagles questions this spring involve the defense. On offense, as we've written, the biggest issue is Michael Vick, health and turnovers. There is one other significant offensive unknown, currently listed at 6-5, 311. Demetress Bell talked to reporters Wednesday after his first 2 days lining up as the left tackle, next to Evan Mathis. Bell might have been the best free agent still on the market when Jason Peters tore his Achilles' (the first time, in March), but that hardly makes him Peters, who was selected for the last five Pro Bowls, who might have been the best left tackle in football in 2011.

B OBBY RYDELL may have chuckled when it was suggested to him that he had endured a "lost weekend," but there was certainly nothing funny about the large swath of the past decade the 68-year-old entertainer spent trying to drown his demons in copious amounts of alcohol. "I was basically gone for five years," admitted the longtime Lower Merion resident, who tonight shares the bill with fellow vintage vocalists Fabian and Lou Christie as "The Golden Boys" at House of Blues inside Atlantic City's Showboat.

Each year, for decades now, fur-maker Blackglama has chosen a big lady star to be its spokes-clotheshorse. Think Kate Hepburn , Audrey Hepburn , Marlene Dietrich , Judy Garland , Sophia Loren . This year? Janet Jackson in a pert new short 'do and furs up to her nostrils. PETA, of course, had a mink about it. With reason: Janet's been on record against real fur in photo shoots.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Joe Paterno broke into a jog as he emerged from the tunnel at the south end of Beaver Stadium when Penn State took the field yesterday. But he didn't stop after 5 yards, or 10. The 82-year-old coach actually made it to the 40-yard line before he slowed to a walk, and headed toward the sideline for the first time since undergoing hip-replacement surgery last November. "Did you clock me for the 100 meters?" the coach asked with a smile. "I don't think that kid from Jamaica [Usain Bolt]

A 76-year-old Burlington County woman who had not been seen for several days was discovered in her garage yesterday, trapped in a recycling bucket. Mary Davis was found when neighbors and police came to her rescue. It was not clear how long Davis was stuck, but residents of her Pemberton Township neighborhood said she had not been seen for three days when they called authorities. Davis' cocker spaniel, Dusty, knocked her off balance, police said, causing her to fall rear-first into a tall cylindrical bin. When police arrived yesterday morning, a neighbor's son wriggled through a dog door at Davis' residence and unlocked the house.
