Tom Kane might have been thought to be politically dead in Burlington County after his crushing defeat in November as a Democratic candidate for freeholder. Far from it. Kane, 25, who previously was an aide to U.S. Rep. Rob Andrews of Camden County, has been tapped by chairman Kevin Covert as the Burlington County Democrats' first executive director. "I clearly was very, very impressed with Tom during the campaign," said Covert, who does not blame Kane for the Democrats' 1994 debacle.

Tom Kane triumphant! One man, and only one man, was left standing in the season-one finale of Starz's drama Boss , which ended with a pitched battle over Chicago's mayoral office. Mayor Kane (Kelsey Grammer), the undisputed boss of all of Illinois, was left to survey the harrowing scene of bloody - political, if not corporeal - carnage left in the wake of a coup attempt. It pitted him against virtually every one of his most-trusted allies, including his young protege, Ben Zajac (Jeff Hephner)

You've heard of matching drapes and slipcovers. How about a matching, color-coordinated, 35,000-square-foot warehouse with stucco facing and yellow aluminum roofing and trim? That's what will be seen in the Upper Southampton Industrial Park, on the northern corner of County Line Road and James Way, if a plan presented to the township Planning Commission on Tuesday night receives final approval. It sure would beat the current mosquito-infested, empty plot covered with weeds and 6-foot-high dirt mounds, said builder Tom Kane.

St. Patrick sent his representative to Kensington yesterday to provide a student body of mainly Latino children with a program of Irish music, along with a bit of the blarney. It was Tom Kane, himself, who provided the entertainment for five first-grade classes and their teachers at the auditorium at Isaac A. Sheppard School, Howard and Cambria streets. Drawing a parallel between the experience - shared by Irish-Americans and Puerto Ricans - of emigrating from an island, Kane began his presentation with a song about the sorrow of leaving one's country for America.

Kevin Meehan spent part of his Memorial Day Weekend throwing a Frisbee outside the home of a friend in Sea Isle City, N.J. After all, he figured there was no way coach Bob Vent was going to ask him to make a third start in nine days for Monsignor Bonner's baseball team. Was there? "I didn't think I was going to have to pitch," Meehan said. "But when Mr. Vent asked me (Monday night) at practice if I could go, I told him, 'Yeah.' " Meehan not only started yesterday, he lasted seven innings for the third time in nine days as Bonner edged West Catholic, 6-5, in a first-round Catholic South playoff at Swarthmore College.

More than a month after Halloween, members of the Central Bucks East girls' swim team decided to masquerade as their favorite coach. As the East girls' head coach since 1976, Tom Kane seems everywhere at the pool. And before Monday's workout, he was. "I was getting ready for practice in my office," Kane said. "All of a sudden, I saw 15 of myself staring back at me laughing like crazy. They made cakes with the teachers' faces in school. One of my swimmers got the negative and went crazy on the Xerox machine.

Tom Kane, coach of the girls' swimming team at Central Bucks East, thinks his Patriots (4-1) are on schedule. "We're right on target," said Kane, whose team defeated Neshaminy on Thursday, 111-44. The win gave C. B. East (3-1 nonleague record) its first Suburban One victory of the year. "We achieved our first goal, which was to have a better nonleague record than last year," Kane said. In the 1988-89 season, the Patriots were 2-2 at the start of league competition. But in this season's nonleague meets, C. B. East beat Wissahickon, Hatboro-Horsham and Archbishop Wood.

Thomas J. Kane Jr., an Irish wit and former South Philadelphia football coach, died Wednesday after suffering a massive stroke last month. He was 84 and lived in Turnersville, N.J. Kane, who played guard for the Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Club, coached the Lamont Catholic Club at 3rd and McKean streets from 1938 to 1948. So many of his players went into the service during World War II that he used to get up to 50 to 60 letters a week from around the world. Unable to keep up with answering all of them, Kane started putting out a mimeographed newsletter to let the guys know what was happening in the neighborhood.
