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.

With its cascading granite waterfalls, sculpture garden, and reflecting pools, banking mogul Vernon Hill's 55,000-square-foot mansion is over-the-top even for pricey Moorestown, says New Jersey's top tax court. But Hill's "opulent" mansion on 44 acres - reportedly the largest private home in New Jersey - is far from overvalued for tax purposes, according to the court's chief judge. In a ruling handed down last week, the presiding judge of New Jersey Tax Court rejected Hill's 2008 lawsuit asking him to cut in half the township's $21 million assessment.

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.

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.

It was a defensive performance worthy of a legendary linebacker. With Pro Football Hall of Famer Dave Robinson in the house, Moorestown's defense put together a nearly flawless effort in a 7-0 victory over Seneca on Thursday night in the West Jersey Football League opener for both teams. "The strength of our team," new Quakers coach Beau Sherry said of a defense that allowed just two first downs and shut down Seneca's running game. On a rainy night when Moorestown retired Robinson's No. 89 jersey at halftime, the Quakers overcame the elements and the Golden Eagles' sturdy defense with a late touchdown on a 50-yard pass from senior Tyreek Robinson to senior wide receiver Brandon Hammons.

Drive down streets in any affluent neighborhood and you will see perfectly serviceable home furnishings waiting for trash crews to haul them away. "I hate for good things to go to waste in a landfill. I would be willing to arrange for things to be picked up and given to Goodwill or sold," said Leonore Spinelli, an agent with Century 21 Alliance in Moorestown as well as a residential interior designer and virtual stager. "The situation is such a shame, but great for street pickers," Spinelli said, although some communities discourage such collections.

One of two Moorestown wells - shut down in October because of a chemical contaminant found in the town's water - has been ordered reopened after tests showed the chemical is no longer present. The action Tuesday evening by the Moorestown Township Council came at the recommendation of Township Manager D. Scott Carew, who also called for a pilot study to develop a water treatment plan for the other well at the North Church Street treatment plant. The chemical found in the water last October was 1,2,3-trichloropropane (TCP)

UNION, N.J. - The first five minutes were like watching a video game set on easy. The reputation of the Moorestown girls' lacrosse team sometimes seems larger than life - but the lore is hard to argue when the Quakers perform as they did Saturday at the start of a 17-4 win over Morristown in the Group 3 state championship at Kean University. Less than three minutes in, the Quakers were ahead by 3-0. Moorestown won the first three draws, scored on its first three shots and was never without possession.

When David Smith turned toward the cage, the first thing he noticed was a defender bearing down on him. It was a fitting moment because it summed up the entire game: One team pushed, the other team pushed harder. And with that defender in the corner of his eye, Smith starting pushing. "I saw I had a step on him, and I just took off down the field. I was able to slide left toward the goal and get a quick shot off top-shelf," Smith said. "The first thing I thought when it went in was: It's about time.

A 30-year-old isn't over the hill, but may need a little jolt of something extra to get it to the next level. That's true for people - and with races, too. The Scott Coffee Moorestown Rotary 8K, a 31-year-old race in South Jersey, is getting that jolt this year by re-branding its race to hopefully attract and embrace new runners for its June 6 event. "We can't have alcohol in Moorestown but we can have coffee," said Bob Bickel, who is part of the race organization team. The race started out as the Moorestown Rotary 8K. "Scott Coffee" was added to the name after cofounder Scott Coffee died in 2006.

The Moorestown baseball team scored 13 runs for senior pitcher Jared Gold on Tuesday. He only needed one. "You'll always take one of these," Gold said after pitching a crisp two-hitter in Moorestown's 13-0 victory at Burlington Township in a Burlington County League Liberty Division game. Junior Dane Fante cracked a three-run home run and seniors Colin Francisco and Zach Rausch each drove in three runs as Moorestown (10-8 overall, 4-3 league) broke out the bats in a big way on a warm day. The offensive production was in marked contrast to most of the Quakers' games with Gold on the mound.

Agnes Irwin did something Wednesday that no other lacrosse team had done since 2010: win a game at Moorestown.
