ATLANTIC CITY - It was the spot during Sandy where the storm surge sent pieces of the iconic Boardwalk crashing into the street, creating the indelible - but false - impression that the city's Boardwalk had been destroyed. It hadn't. This part of the Boardwalk, on the inlet end facing Brigantine, had been in disrepair for years. But three years later, during the most recent nor'easter flooding, the inlet again came crashing unimpeded onto Atlantic City streets, creating another unwanted image for local and national eyes.

Msgr. Dominic Bottino once shared a memorable two-week trip to Germany with Msgr. Joseph G. Stoerlein. "No piano was safe when he was around," Bottino told the Catholic Star Herald, the newspaper of the Camden Diocese. During that trip, "he would play the piano each night in each different hotel where our travel group was staying. " Larry Delaney, the husband of Msgr. Stoerlein's sister Antoinette, recalled that his brother-in-law "could play any tune on the piano, like a professional.

One summer in the 1960s, when he was in his 40s, John F. Born took his family on a vacation in New England. "We came across a rail yard in Vermont, and he was struck by the mechanical beauty of the locomotives," his son Matthew recalled. "He became kind of a rail fan, and a couple of times a year, he would go on short trips and photograph railroads all over the country. " Eventually, his son said, Mr. Born became a contributor to the Triumph series of books about the former Pennsylvania Railroad published by Barnard, Roberts & Co. That was just for fun after he retired, his son said.

ABSECON, N.J. - No, the Jersey Shore doesn't roll up the streets and go dark after Labor Day. For many locales up and down the coast, the holiday season is among the most dazzling times of year. "For us, Thanksgiving weekend is really busier here than any summer weekend - even the Fourth of July," said Scott Wahl, Avalon borough administrator. "This is the time of the year that the second homeowners really come down and enjoy their own properties with family and friends. " Wahl's town planned two days of kickoff events this weekend, including a winter carnival and the lighting of more than a mile of trees along Dune Drive.

C.J. LaFragola used to wear blue and gold. Now he wears red and white. He used to play quarterback. Now he plays fullback. He used to travel down the Garden State Parkway every morning to Absecon. Now he goes inland to Hammonton. But some things are the same: It's Week 2, it's St. Joseph vs. Holy Spirit, and the anticipation is building toward what will be one of the most hard-hitting and far-reaching games of the South Jersey football season. "It's like the South Jersey Super Bowl," LaFragola said of the game that will match his new team against his old team in a Cape-Atlantic League American Division clash Friday night at Holy Spirit.

Come September, most kids can count on one thing: the start of school. But many families make sure their students-to-be can rely on something else: a personal back-to-school tradition. From baked goods that serve as tokens of parental support to those first-day-of-class photo sessions, moms say it gives them and their kids something to look forward to each year, and helps just a little to ease the first-day jitters. Mimi Larkin has a great deal of experience with the subject: 14 years to be precise.

Step outside lately? It's bad enough walking the dog right now, but running in this muck can be torture. "The primary issue is the impact the heat and humidity has on our body's core temperature," said Maria Simone, USATF-certified coach of the Absecon, N.J.-based No Limits Endurance Coaching. Normally, we're at 97 to 99 degrees. Run outside on a hot and humid day and you can push that core temperature up past 100. "Research suggests that as our core body temperature approaches 103 degrees, our bodies fatigue, pace slows, rate of perceived exertion increases, and we risk heat exhaustion or stroke if the core temp continues to rise even more," she said.

Charles Peruto Jr. No drugs or alcohol were found at the scene, the room was undisturbed, and the liquor closet was closed, the officials said.

A. Charles Peruto Jr., a prominent criminal defense lawyer, expressed sadness and dismay Sunday over the death of a woman found in his Center City home Saturday whom he called his girlfriend. Peruto, who answered the door at the three-story brick house at South 20th Street and Delancey Place, declined to comment beyond describing his relationship with the woman. She was identified by a police source and friends as Julia Law, an employee at Peruto's Philadelphia law firm. "Julia was a beautiful, caring free spirit hippy, who I was blessed to have known," Peruto said later in a text message.
