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.

Gavin Bright and Matt Hendrickson are slick, athletic soccer players. In space, they might be the most dangerous combination in South Jersey. They're smart and creative and lightning-quick on and off the ball. That is what makes the Clearview seniors one of the area's most highly touted offensive duos. But, as they point out, it's not necessarily what makes them winners. Winning a big game, Bright said, is all about composure. "To be completely honest, you just can't overthink it," Bright added.

The spur-of-the-moment decision to move sophomore defenseman Nicki Dadino up to midfield during a corner shot worked for the Moorestown field hockey team. Receiving the ball near the right post of Shawnee's cage from senior midfielder Rachel Stefano, Dadino placed the ball perfectly to the left side. Scoring her first high school goal, she helped give the host Quakers a 2-1 win over an old rival, the Renegades, in a nonleague matchup Wednesday. "I had a gut feeling inside of me that it was going to come right to me," Dadino said.

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.

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 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.

JUST TO LOOK OVER the delicacies that Catherine Sullivan specialized in is to regret that you were never invited to her home for dinner. Try manicotti, clams and spaghetti, crabs and spaghetti, or lamb and spaghetti, often served at her beach house in Ship Bottom, N.J., with the sound of the surf and the gentle sea breeze at the window. If you notice an Italian flavor to her menu, it's understandable, since her maiden name was Garofalo. "Catherine may have been the matriarch of the Sullivan Clan, but she knew her Italian cooking," her family said.
