Surely few moviegoers who saw George C. Scott in Patton (1970) have forgotten his coruscating, Oscar-winning portrayal of one of the greatest generals of World War II. Most, I imagine, will return to see Scott tell the end of this story in The Last Days of Patton, a telemovie airing this weekend. Like Jason Robards performing in plays by Eugene O'Neill, Scott seems to have found his most fitting artistic home in the blood-and-guts saga of Gen. George S. Patton. If a documentary about the real Patton were produced, probably the first reaction from many viewers would be that he didn't look enough like Scott to play his own role.

As Beezie Patton tells it, she's been knocking on the door for a while aboard Imaginario. Last month, the show-jumping rider was fifth in the Grand Prix of Devon, and she has placed well in most of the classes in which she's ridden the fiery 9-year-old Argentinian-bred. Yesterday, though, Patton and Imaginario won their first major class, in one of the most important grand prix competitions in the country, the $100,000 Rolex/USET Show Jumping Championship. Patton, of Cazenovia, N.Y., believes Imaginario is one of her most talented horses in the 12 years she's been riding on the grand prix circuit.

Six-foot-two, 214-pound police Officer Perry Parks is reduced to tears when he talks about his former partner, an occasional bedmate.

His ex, Patton, is a German shepherd mix that had been with the Medford Police Department since he was rescued from a Philadelphia animal shelter in 1990. Problems with his aging hips forced him out of commission this year. Patton is being replaced with Omar, a Belgian Malinois and former police dog for Conrail.

John Kero almost seemed a forgotten defendant at his trial on criminal homicide charges in Bucks County Court yesterday. The spotlight was on Newtown Township Police Sgt. Charles Patton, who last fall pursued Kero on a wild, high-speed chase that ended when Kero's vehicle crashed into a car in Warwick Township, killing a 57-year-old-woman. For three hours yesterday, defense attorney Martha Sperling grilled Patton on his decision to maintain the chase along narrow, winding roads.

When Joseph Gonzalez-Rivas arrived at Patton in September 1991, what he saw reminded him of a baseball team in the doldrums. Patton, a label-making company in Moorestown, was beset by the financial and manufacturing blahs. Self-confidence was at a low ebb. And Rivas, hired away from a competitor to be Patton's new president, was charged with turning things around. That's just what he did. Last year, Patton's sales rose 23 percent. In this year's first quarter, they soared 38 percent more.

When Christine W. Patton landed a job as a foreign-exchange trader at Morgan Guaranty Trust Co. in 1969, she considered it a fluke. Female traders were almost nonexistent then, even in the fairly staid business of foreign-exchange trading, which, for most banks, was a sideline with little risk. Now, foreign-currency trading is a high-stakes, 24-hours-a-day game in which billions of dollars are traded by the push of a button and in which mistakes can cost millions. Patton's career has changed as dramatically.

He announced through a bullhorn that the cars had to move. Moments later, Behar, the field coordinator for the Middletown Athletic Association, was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.

Kip Patton caught the pass and immediately turned upfield. He shrugged off an attempted tackler and turned on the jets before finally being tackled on the Tulane 5-yard line. All told it was a 43-yard completion, showing both the big-play ability and improvement in the 6-foot-4, 241-pound tight end from Norristown High. It was one of the Owls' many highlight plays from a 49-10 win over visiting Tulane on Saturday. "I caught the ball and felt somebody hit me and bounce off and it was a great feeling," said Patton, whose 5-0 Owls host Central Florida (0-6)

NO ONE can say they didn't see this coming. "Blurred Lines" singer Robin Thicke and his beautiful actress wife, Paula Patton ("Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol," "Idlewild" and "Precious"), are calling it quits after nine years of marriage. Thicke, 36, and Patton, 38, met when they were teenagers - long before either of them had even the first glimpse of fame - but between a music megahit, Miley twerking, film-set rumors and Emily Ratajkowski 's "Blurred Lines" video breasts, that's a lot for a marriage to stand up to. Patton has also appeared in Thicke's music videos, including "Lost Without U" and "Love After War. " She was the inspiration behind most of his music, and she appeared on the cover of his 2003 debut, "A Beautiful World.

Chris Patton appeared to be thoroughly enjoying himself in the 1989 U.S. Amateur and the crowd at Merion Golf Club loved him for it. The 300-pound self-described "country farm kid" from South Carolina impressed with his self-deprecating humor, his homespun personality, and his game. You figured that after Patton swept through six matches to win the championship and the Havemeyer Trophy that you'd be reading about him on golf pages for years to come once he completed his senior year at Clemson.

Patton, 53, a former state prosecutor, yesterday was sentenced in Bucks County Court to serve three to 23 months in the county prison. "We were instructed to sit tall as choirboys and let the justice system do its work," Demou's brother, Mike Butler, said after the sentencing.

It was a mystifying pedestrian death - one that initially confused police investigators, triggered a seven-month grand jury probe, and left little decisive evidence behind. In the end, that evidence was not enough to convict lawyer Richard Patton of vehicular homicide in the death of his girlfriend in a Newtown Township parking lot. A Bucks County jury yesterday acquitted Patton, 52, of the most serious charges in the April 26, 2007, death of Heather Demou. Demou, 34, died of head injuries when she fell from the side of Patton's moving pickup truck after the couple had argued outside La Stalla, a restaurant in Newtown.
