You can board a New Jersey Transit train to Atlantic City at the line's Atco station - the trains still stop there - but you won't be able to buy a ticket at the station. While all passengers along the Atlantic City commuter line can purchase tickets after boarding the train, only the Atco station has had vandalism problems severe enough to warrant removal of the ticket machines. Passengers boarding at the newly constructed station must purchase tickets after getting on the train.

No one disputes that there were problems between the Pollocks and the Passarellas in the middle-class Atco neighborhood of Waterford, where generations of youngsters have grown up and stay on to raise their own children. But there is disagreement on what happened in February, when an argument between two men escalated into a police charge and a court case. Michael Pollock, who owns a hardware store, says he was beaten up because he is Jewish. The accused, Robert Passarella, an auto-body shop owner, says that he didn't strike Pollock and that he doesn't dislike Jews; he just thinks Pollock is a troublemaker.

Harold Anning sold the local five-and-dime a couple of years ago, the Waterford Township Memorial Day Parade isn't the red-letter event that it used to be and Republicans have unseated the Democrats as the power party in Waterford politics. And now, one of the township's other mainstays, the Atco Drive-In, is changing, too. The 30-plus-year-old drive-in, which is closed for the season, will likely be replaced by a shopping center and a 14-screen indoor theater. National Amusements Inc., the Dedham, Mass.

"We're trying to spread awareness about this epidemic," Bryan J. Bush, assistant business manager of Sheet Metal Workers Local 19, told about 50 law enforcement officers, union members, and other volunteers in front of Camden County police headquarters.

He got a heady civil engineer, Richard Osborne, to build a train line over to the place - which Osborne renamed "Atlantic City" - and by the 1870s, a half-million shoobies were coming there each summer by train.
