Some athletes make their college decisions in sealed-off bedrooms, shortly after pulling out their hair. Others do so at the kitchen table, surrounded by friends and family. Last night, star lineman Ray Kane, of Archbishop Carroll, announced his final verdict in a car. "I went down to see the Villanova-Pitt basketball game at the Spectrum," Kane said. "I'd been doing a lot of thinking. On the way home, I turned to my father and said, 'I'm going to Virginia.' " The 6-4, 240-pound Kane, who played full time at defensive tackle and part time at offensive tackle, last month was named Lineman of the Year in connection with the Daily News All-Scholastic Football Team.

Already in tune with the future, Trey Womack doesn't think he will have a problem catching up with the college beat. Womack, a Malvern Prep senior wide receiver and cornerback from Springfield, Delaware County, has orally committed to attend Virginia on a football scholarship. Primarily recruited as a defensive back, Womack said last night that, because of his 4.3 speed in the 40-yard dash, the Cavaliers have told him that he might play other positions in the future. "I think I could play some wide receiver there," Womack said.

The multi-talented athlete yesterday committed formally to the Cavaliers with the understanding that his first-year tuition will be paid with a scholarship allocated to the university's football program. Blundin, 18, said there was no doubt in his mind that he would suit up in Virginia sneakers and shorts.

Second-ranked Virginia went down to the wire with No. 14 Stephen F. Austin at University Hall in a second-round NCAA women's Midwest Regional contest yesterday, but unlike some other notable teams that have already fallen, the Cavaliers managed to land on their feet in the final seconds. The play that saved Virginia (28-2) from joining No. 1 Penn State, No. 5 Purdue and No. 8 Louisiana State on the pile of also-rans in this year's event occurred with four seconds to play, when Dobbins High graduate Dawn Staley penetrated and dished off to 6-foot-5 Heather Burge, who made a shot from underneath the basket to give the Cavaliers a 74-72 victory.

Maryland coach Chris Weller has waited 17 years to see Cole Fieldhouse filled to capacity for a women's basketball game, and last night she saw her dream come true. Unfortunately for Weller and most of the standing-room-only crowd of more than 14,500, they didn't get what they wanted, but they came ever so close. The top-ranked Terrapins (20-2 overall, 10-1 conference) were nipped by second-ranked Virginia, 75-74, in an Atlantic Coast Conference game that gave the Cavaliers revenge for Maryland's 67-65 upset of Virginia in Charlottesville last month when the Cavs held the No. 1 ranking.

Penn Virginia Corp. of Radnor, one of the region's oldest surviving businesses, filed for bankruptcy protection Thursday, a casualty of the worldwide plunge in energy prices. Founded in 1882 by Philadelphia coal barons, the company transitioned to shale-oil production in recent years but was overwhelmed by last year's oil-price collapse, which eroded its revenue and diminished the value of its oil and gas reserves. The company, whose acreage is concentrated in Texas but includes holdings in Pennsylvania's Marcellus Shale region, listed assets of $518 million and debts of $1.4 billion in filings with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Virginia.

Penn Virginia Corp., the embattled Radnor oil and gas producer, stated Friday in a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filing that it is "highly likely" it will seek Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection to restructure $1.2 billion in debt. The company, which is among many U.S. oil and gas producers in financial trouble because of low energy prices, acknowledged in its first-quarter earnings report that it is in default under its revolving credit agreement. Its lenders have agreed not to declare default until May 10 if certain conditions have been satisfied.

The Virginia Health Department has indefinitely suspended the license of a Fairfax clinic owned by discredited abortion doctor Steven Brigham, citing dozens of violations, including dirty equipment, expired drugs, unlicensed medical personnel, and haphazard storage of patient records. A two-day inspection on April 4 and 5 led to the immediate shutdown, according to the 52-page inspection report. The facility is part of Brigham's abortion-clinic chain, called American Women's Services and headquartered in Voorhees.

Embattled Radnor oil and gas producer Penn Virginia reported gloomy annual earnings late Tuesday, as its auditors expressed "substantial doubt" about its ability to be a going concern. The company, which primarily produces oil and natural gas liquids in Texas and has been slammed by depressed energy prices, reported a loss of $1.6 billion on revenue of $305 million. Much of the loss was attributed to a $1.4 billion impairment from the reduced value of its oil reserves. The auditor's negative assessment puts Penn Virginia's revolving credit agreement into technical default.

Shares in Penn Virginia Corp., the embattled Radnor oil and gas producer, nearly quadrupled in value Monday, soaring from 10 cents a share to 38 cents a share. It closed at 36.7 cents in over-the-counter trading that was about eight times the average volume. Penn Virginia, which produces oil from Texas and Oklahoma shale formations, has sunk in value from a 52-week high of $8.03 a share as losses have mounted from low oil prices. The company was delisted from the New York Stock Exchange in January after its share prices fell below $1. On Jan. 15, it announced it retained financial advisors and legal advisors for "strategic alternatives related to its capital structure.

"VIRGINIA ROSS started as a hugger," the Daily News' Ron Goldwyn wrote about her in 2001. Virginia visited hospitals "to hug and rock babies left behind by AIDS- and HIV-infected mothers," Goldwyn wrote. That kind of love and compassion for the sick and those "left behind" by sufferers marked Virginia's life of service to AIDS and HIV patients, as well as in education programs to call attention to the disease and ways to prevent its spread. Her particular emphasis was on the impact the dreaded disease has on the African-American community, where for many years it was a forbidden topic because of its association with homosexuality.
