John Majane hoped for more than a decade that his daughter, who was 15 when he last saw her in Moorestown, N.J., had simply run away. But Carolyn Majane was pretty, popular and happy. And aside from the usual struggles of growing up with four brothers, she had no reason to vanish on her own. "I always hoped that she was alive," said John Majane, a self-employed engineer who now lives with his family in Bethesda, Md. "But after so many years and so many holidays went by without so much as a phone call, I started to realize that she must be dead.

WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J. - When the last second ticked off the first-half clock, Jessica Goralski was prepared for another 25 minutes of dutifully cheering on her teammates from the sideline. Goralski, a freshman goalie for the Moorestown girls' lacrosse team, had yet to see the field. She was expecting more of the same when coach Deanna Knobloch approached her. "Jess," Knobloch said. "You're going in. " And that was it. It was halftime of the Group 3 championship. The game was tied.

The season was young, but Thomas Farrior thought Willingboro's habit of losing close games was getting old. "We had to figure out a way to win games like this," said Farrior, Willingboro's versatile senior guard. Farrior had 18 points, six rebounds, and four steals as Willingboro beat Moorestown, 74-72, Thursday in overtime in a Burlington County League interdivision boys' basketball game. Senior forward Terique Robinson also scored 18 and made the only bucket in overtime for Willingboro (5-3)

A coaching milestone and a trip to a championship game will be on the line for the Moorestown boys' soccer team Sunday in the semifinals of the South Jersey Coaches Tournament. The Quakers got there by beating Timber Creek, 1-0, in a quarterfinal defensive struggle Saturday, giving coach Mike Sutcliffe his 299th win in a career that goes back to 1990. Ninth-seeded Moorestown will play Lenape, a Friday winner over Haddon Heights, at 2 p.m. at Eastern. Michael Handlan scored the game's lone goal in the 79th minute, winning a race to a loose ball in the box after a failed clearing attempt.

BASKING RIDGE, N.J. - Moorestown has deeper roots and a more successful history than any other South Jersey boys' lacrosse team. It is the only area program with a state title on its resumé, and it has three championships. Hardly a season goes by when the Quakers are not expected to compete for a state championship. But this was one of those rare seasons. "Nobody expected us to make it this far," senior attack Michael Handlan said after his team's 13-4 loss to Ridgewood on Wednesday in the Group 3 state final at Ridge High.

The Traganza property is finally in the hands of Moorestown. The 34 acres on Garwood Road are "some of the most prestigious and pristine property in town," said Dennis Talty, the township solicitor. "It has woods, streams, wildlife. It's really environmentally sensitive. " Township officials had been "pursuing this property for a long, long time," Talty said. Late last week, negotiations were completed to buy the land for $350,000 from PNC Bank, the trustee and executor of Robert and Mary Traganza's estate.

Moments before the first goal, a Moorestown assistant coach shook his head and threw his hands in the air. "That's the story of our season," he said as West Deptford's RJ Eckley lined up for a penalty kick, after Moorestown was whistled for a handball in the 18-yard box. Such was the way the game went Saturday morning as third-seeded West Deptford beat No. 14 Moorestown, 2-1, in the first round of the boys' soccer Coaches Tournament. The game featured several fitting examples of the frustration felt by Moorestown (7-5-1)

After sharing a state Group 2 championship last season, the Moorestown field hockey didn't take any chances on settling for another tie yesterday when it made a repeat appearance in the title game. The Quakers (21-1), ranked No. 4 team in The Inquirer South Jersey top 10, overpowered Wallkill Valley, 4-1, in a game played at Trenton State College. The victory gave coach Joan Lewis her fifth state title in 10 years at Moorestown. "We wanted to come up here and win big," said Lewis, who reminded her team before the game about last year's 1-1 tie with Westwood.

Moorestown coach Bill Donoghue warned his baseball team about the dangers of playing Cinnaminson, and he saw nothing but puzzled looks. After all, Moorestown had pummeled the Pirates, 18-0, on April 8. Donoghue knew what he was talking about. Moorestown escaped with a 2-1 victory yesterday over Cinnaminson in the Burlington County League Liberty Division. Moorestown, which finished last season 6-14, improved to 8-2 overall and 5-1 in the Liberty. Cinnaminson, which starts only two seniors, fell to 6-7, 4-4. "I told our guys that it would be a close game, and they looked at me like I was crazy," Donoghue said.

A federal judge in Camden has dismissed a lawsuit in which two Moorestown couples alleged that their families were exposed to health risks and a loss of property value because of underground contamination caused by a toxic chemical spill at a plant now owned by Lockheed Martin. Judge Jerome B. Simandle said no evidence was presented to show that the concentrations of trichloroethylene (TCE) and perchloroethylene (PCE) vapors found in the Wexford neighborhood across from the plant "pose an imminent and substantial endangerment to health or the environment.

Amid the sprawling front lawns and stately homes of east Moorestown, six burglaries have unfolded about two miles apart since early June, and with common themes: The residents were away in each instance, and did not set or have working alarms. Second-floor bedrooms - and the jewelry inside them - were the main target, with TVs and silverware generally untouched. And the hours of 6 p.m. to midnight were prime time for the thieves. With the latest burglary reported Monday, Moorestown police are investigating whether the same individual or group is responsible.

Sgt. William McGovern of the Burlington County Prosecutor's Office fatally ran over a motorcyclist and called 911 last July 27. Then, minutes after he learned the victim was off-duty Moorestown Patrolman Craig Berner, McGovern left the scene on Westfield Road to feed a friend's cat, according to law enforcement records. Although McGovern returned within an hour of the 10 p.m. crash - and township police then documented that he smelled of alcohol - authorities called off a sobriety test requested by a Moorestown officer.

When he was growing up in Moorestown, Bob Flynn often pondered a military career. He attended Army-Navy games, asked questions about the service, and later entered the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md. But Flynn never imagined the life that lay ahead - the rush of flying S-3B Viking twin-engine jets, deploying on three aircraft carriers, then serving in Iraq, where he cleared IEDs around Basra. Now, after years as a professor at the U.S. Naval War College in Newport, R.I., he has received another surprise.

On sunny days the roof of Moorestown's new town hall and public library heats up, and so does the water in the faucets below. "It got up to 180 degrees over the winter," Catherine Ward said after climbing a steep yellow ladder last week to inspect the building's rooftop solar array. "By the time they opened the building [in April], they had to dial it back to 140. " It was the first time that Ward, chair of Sustainable Moorestown, had laid eyes on the south-facing array of 16 gray, plastic-encased panels installed over the winter that power the water heater.

Just 13 hours before Moorestown's new library was due to open its doors to the public, the township's consulting architect, Rick Ragan, recommended to the township council that it demolish the former library. Speaking Monday before the council's regular monthly meeting, Ragan said it would cost about $3.4 million to bring the massively built concrete structure up to modern construction code - even before the building would be modified for some new purpose. "In all likelihood, the cost of rehabilitating and modernizing it would exceed the cost of replacing it," Ragan, of Ragan Design Group of Medford, told the council.

Philip Iapalucci, 73, of Moorestown, an avid hiker, an environmentalist, and a former Municipal Court judge, died Tuesday, July 1, from complications associated with Alzheimer's disease at Virtua Memorial hospital in Mount Holly. Even as he battled the disease, Mr. Iapalucci, who was raised in Camden, didn't let it hold him back from his love of the Pine Barrens. He went as recently as two months ago, said Josephine, his high school sweetheart and wife of 51 years. "He had a great passion for the environment," she said.

Friends and relatives recalled Craig Berner - a Moorestown patrolman fatally struck by a truck while off duty - as one of the good guys, who would help even a turtle in need. Berner, a member of the township police department for 26 years, died nearly a year ago on his way to a store when he was thrown from his motorcycle and struck by a pickup truck. Several dozen people gathered Monday evening at Memorial Field on South Church Street for a candlelight vigil to honor Berner and garner support to reopen a criminal investigation into Berner's death.

Federal authorities have accused a Moorestown man of cheating the U.S. Department of Defense by providing unapproved products on $3 million worth of contracts in 2008 and 2009. Richard Melton, as president of Partz Network, a replacement-parts distributor in Burlington Township, intentionally provided parts to the department that were not from an approved list of suppliers - then falsified or fabricated documentation for their source, according to a criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Trenton.

BRIDGEWATER, N.J. - She bounced in her first goal off a free-position shot. And there was something about the bounce. There was a little extra force in the way the ball sprung off the turf, a little extra attitude in the way Marie McCool ripped it forward. Anyone paying attention could sense what McCool was thinking. And those who had watched her play before probably knew what was coming. "I told myself at halftime," McCool said. "I am not losing my last game as a high school player.
