SIXTY-THREE years later, it remains the most enduring image in golf. And there's not even a close second. When asked at this April's Masters what he knew about Merion before he first played its East Course, 2010 U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell simply responded, " Hogan, 1-iron. " For many, that's enough. They will be linked for as long as they are still playing this goofy game. A lot of folks who wouldn't know a driver from a lob wedge have probably seen Hy Peskin's timeless photo of Hogan hitting that club from the 18th fairway to the final green of regulation a little more than 200 yards away.

Former World Wrestling Champion Hulk Hogan and his current rival for the newly vacated heavyweight crown, "Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase, will battle to the finish in a "lumberjack match" during tomorrow night's main event at the Spectrum. The match - in which other wrestlers patrol at ringside to make sure no competitor leaves the ring - is a precursor to the March 27 "Wrestlemania IV," an elimination tournament that will determine the new WWF champion. DiBiase and Hogan could meet in a preliminary round of that tournament, which is being hosted by Trump Plaza at at Convention Hall in Atlantic City.

For the first time in 15 years, Gloucester County Republicans reclaimed the office of sheriff last night as Franklin Township Police Chief James N. Hogan, an aggressive campaigner, defeated Undersheriff Edwin H. Erickson, the retiring sheriff's hand-picked successor. The Republicans also retained their one seat on the board of freeholders as incumbent Daniel J. Mangini rallied to a late victory. The most popular candidate for the two positions on the board of freeholders, however, was Democrat Maggie Smith, who became the first woman elected to the board.

Former inmates and their families had told Gloucester County Sheriff James N. Hogan about the jumble in the pharmacy of the county jail in Woodbury. But when Hogan inspected the pharmacy shortly after taking office in January, things were worse than he feared. Capsules were strewn across the floors and table tops. Cabinets that contained dangerous drugs were left unlocked and open. Employees' lunches were stored alongside medication in the refrigerators. There were no accurate records of what drugs had been purchased or dispensed.

Here's a thought for kids who whine to their parents about being too tired to take out the trash: You won't know tired until you try B.J. "Butch" Hogan's schedule. Hogan, a 5-10, 160-pound junior, is a three-sport star at Cardinal O'Hara High. He's now playing two simultaneously, and we're not talking golf and tennis. Yesterday, at Plymouth-Whitemarsh High, Hogan made two interceptions at cornerback (raising his season's total to nine; the city-leagues record is 15) and returned one for a crucial 71-yard touchdown as O'Hara bested St. Joseph's Prep, 35-21, in an entertaining Catholic Red game.

Gov. Whitman, in a move that could undercut one of her prospective 1997 rivals, has appealed to Gloucester County Sheriff James N. Hogan to challenge U.S. Rep. Robert E. Andrews, a Democrat, in the First District congressional election in November. Seeking a candidate to oppose Andrews, a two-term incumbent who got 67 percent of the vote in 1992, Republican Party leaders have turned to Hogan, who announced last month that he would not seek re-election as sheriff. The two-term sheriff, widely viewed as the GOP's best hope for mounting a credible campaign against Andrews, has told Whitman and state Republican leaders that he would make a decision within the next several days.

The top guns of the New Jersey Republican Party, led by Gov. Whitman, scored a major political coup yesterday by luring Gloucester County Sheriff James N. Hogan into this year's campaign to unseat Democratic U.S. Rep. Robert E. Andrews. Acknowledging that he faces an uphill fight, Hogan entered a race that state GOP leaders hope will derail Andrews' gubernatorial ambitions and boost Republican turnout on traditionally Democratic turf for this year's U.S. Senate campaign. The stakes are so high that Whitman, who will be up for re-election in 1997, placed some of her own prestige on the line by playing a central role in a campaign that favors the Democrats.

The little playground with swings and wooden playhouse, ramps and slide is about as innocent-looking as the children who play there. But Paul Hogan, a nationally known expert on playgrounds, believes Charlestown's playground is an accident waiting to happen. "It's unsafe," Hogan said Tuesday. Hogan, who quit the Charlestown Park and Recreation Commission earlier this month because the supervisors would not heed his warnings, pointed to the broken and rusted wire fence a few yards from the slide.

H ulk Hogan 's $115 award Friday in his suit against Gawker Media was the main course. Monday came dessert. A jury hit Gawker with $15 million in punitive damages and its owner with $10 million, bringing the total to $140 million, for publishing a sex video of Hogan. From the size of the punitive award, it was clear that the jury wanted to punish Gawker even more. During brief arguments Monday, Gawker's lawyer pleaded that the Friday verdict is already "debilitating" for the company.

The madness continues. In October 2014, seven football players from Sayreville War Memorial High (N.J.) were accused of brutally hazing four teammates in the locker room. Soon after, it was revealed that Central Bucks West High players had subjected rookies to "humiliating" hazing in a preseason football initiation. And this past week it came to light that a weekly ritual dubbed "No-Gay Thursday" was going on at Conestoga High for at least three years. It was a day when players considered certain sexual behavior permissible.

Although they could have done so under state law, prosecutors decided not to add sex-offense charges to other counts against three high school football players accused of brutally hazing a younger teammate. The Conestoga High School seniors allegedly conspired to force a broom handle into the younger student's rectum. The crime technically fits the state definition of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse. However, the students were charged with assault, unlawful restraint, terroristic threats, and related offenses, but not sexual assault.

The football players at Conestoga High School had a nickname for the rituals they performed each week, according to prosecutors. No-Gay Thursday. Some players avoided the locker room that day, when players considered certain sexual behavior permissible. The hazing at the elite Chester County public school, routinely ranked near the top academically in national ratings, escalated into assault one day last fall, authorities said Friday. Three seniors, including a team captain, grabbed a freshman they didn't like, who was trying to leave the locker room during a hazing ritual.

Paul Hogan, 77, a longtime manager at Robin's bookstore, Philadelphia's oldest independent bookseller, died Wednesday, Nov. 11, after a two-year battle with esophageal cancer. A Center City resident, Mr. Hogan was well-known to book lovers who flocked to Robin's not only for books but also to experience the place as a community center, counterculture magnet, and performance space for artists, poets, musicians, and teachers - many of them iconoclasts. Beset by consolidation in publishing, online mail-order houses, and e-books, the store closed in 2012.

TRENTON - A New Jersey judge on Friday blocked attempts by environmental groups and a state senator to appeal the state's settlement with ExxonMobil Corp. in a high-profile pollution case. But the saga isn't over. The groups and State Sen. Raymond J. Lesniak (D., Union) immediately said they would appeal the judge's decision to the Appellate Division. At issue is a $225 million settlement the state struck with Exxon in March, following a decade of litigation over the oil company's contamination of more than a thousand acres of land at two sites in North Jersey.
