Even as it crumbles, the little cottage on a knoll overlooking Evans Pond manages to charm. It has so captivated Cherry Hill resident Kevin Cook that he's started a campaign to save the vacant structure, built as the Wallworth Park clubhouse in 1927. And even as he battles a progressive and incurable neurological disorder that affects his mobility, dexterity, and speech, Cook, 35, has succeeded in persuading Camden County to delay demolition. He also hopes the county can fix the holes in the roof.

A funny thing happened on the way to this newspaper's endorsement in the Democratic primary for state treasurer. (Barbara Hafer is unopposed in the Republican primary.) Quite contrary to our expectations and concerns about the intent of the state Constitution, we found Mina Baker Knoll far and away best qualified. Knoll, 40, is the daughter of the incumbent, Catherine Baker Knoll. The constitution forbids a third term, clearly to force periodic turnover in chief overseer of state money.

Last year about this time, Jeremy Knoll was in Plaistow, N.H., teaching high school English and preparing to coach the boys' tennis team in the spring. This year, the 1994 Haddon Township graduate returned to South Jersey to teach English and coach girls' tennis at Haddon Heights. Knoll's addition to the Garnets program appears to have invigorated a team that went 0-20 last year. The Garnets finished 7-13, but Knoll said the biggest difference was in the players' attitudes.

A half hour before the scheduled game time of 4:30 p.m. yesterday at Shawnee, Renegades field hockey coach Renee Phelps hadn't decided who would be the starting goalkeeper. Senior Katie Burke, junior Marlee Silverstein, and freshman Elina Pereira had all contributed in Shawnee's first two games, both wins. But in the end, it didn't matter to visiting Oak Knoll that Silverstein played the first half and Pereira the second. It also didn't seem important that Oak Knoll's bus driver got lost on the way down from Summit and the ride took two hours, instead of 90 minutes.

The East Pikeland Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to allow a new developer to complete the Kimberton Knoll subdivision development. In a 3-0 vote, the board allowed the Daylesford Associates of Berwyn to take over the project, which calls for 112 townhouses and 31 single-family homes on the south side of Route 113 near Township Line and Rapps Dam Roads. "Daylesford did a nice job on another project in the township, and no one had any complaints about their work," said board member John D. Doyle.

The Horsham Township Planning Commission has recommended approval of preliminary plans for construction of Limekiln Knoll, a 174-unit housing complex to be in the vicinity of Chestnut Lane and Lower State Road. Benton G. Webber, project engineer for the proposed complex, told the Planning Commission on Tuesday evening that preserving the extensive wetland area dispersed throughout the 240-acre tract would be a priority. "We've considered the wetland delineation with respect to the layout of roads and buildings," Webber said about the project, which is being financed by Ferguson & Flynn Enterprises Inc. of Pottstown.

Lt. Gov. Catherine Baker Knoll is being treated for cancer at a Baltimore hospital. Gov. Rendell said yesterday Knoll has been undergoing treatment at Johns Hopkins Hospital for about 10 days. In a letter posted on her Web site in August, Knoll said she had been undergoing radiation and chemotherapy treatments for neuroendocrine cancer since early July. Rendell said that, as far as he knew, there was no prognosis on her condition. "It's a serious health challenge, but the course of treatment is ongoing," said Rendell at a news conference yesterday on an unrelated topic.

Barbara Hafer and Catherine Baker Knoll are back to battling. And this time, Pennyslvania's favorite political tag team is trying to put Gov. Ridge in the middle. Republican Hafer, the auditor general elected treasurer last month, got things started. She wrote Ridge that Democrat Knoll, the treasurer until Hafer takes over next month, would not help Hafer settle into her new job. "I must inform you that the incumbent treasurer has refused to provide much of the basic information we need to facilitate our transition," Hafer wrote Ridge yesterday.

In their first joint appearance of the campaign, the two major candidates for state treasurer questioned each other's independence and qualifications in a debate here yesterday. Republican Philip S. English tried to tie Democrat Catherine Baker Knoll to the administrations of Gov. Milton J. Shapp, for whom she once worked, and Gov. Casey. "The state treasurer . . . needs to maintain the independence of that office from the administration, legislature and judiciary," English said.
