Brian Furlong had trouble falling asleep Wednesday night. As he lay in bed, he worried not only that it would take a while, but that he wouldn't be getting much of it, either. Audubon's quarterback had a lot on his mind. He knew Thanksgiving Day was his last game wearing No. 10 for the Green Wave. Furlong eventually got some shut-eye, but when he woke up, he was still nervous about the rivalry game against Haddon Township. Then the senior went out and put on a great performance.

Tom Curley believes there's something special about the Thanksgiving Day football rivalry between Audubon and Haddon Township. "Even when both teams are having lean years, you walk out to the field and go, 'Wow, look at all these people,' " Curley said. "There's so much tradition and so much support from both communities. "It's like the Army-Navy game for those two schools. " Something new will be on the line this year in the 53d renewal of the annual game between the Colonial Conference and neighborhood rivals.

On the 38th and final pass of his 17th birthday, Overbrook quarterback Tommy Wyatt didn't exactly close his eyes and make a wish. But it was something like that. "You have to trust your teammates," Wyatt said of the pass he lofted into traffic near the goal-line in the final seconds of the season opener Saturday at Audubon. Senior wide receiver Gio Washington beat three defenders to the football and muscled into the end zone for a 15-yard touchdown with two seconds left on the clock to lift the Rams to a 50-48 victory over the Green Wave in an instant classic of a Colonial Conference Liberty Division game.

Chelsea Fadio is one of those players who seems like she's been around forever. It would be easy to overlook the fact that she was just a junior last season. Last season, Fadio didn't just break the Audubon girls' soccer career scoring record, she led her young team to a South Jersey Group 1 championship. It's the type of season that seniors dream of: reaching personal glory and team milestones and then riding off into the sunset. But Fadio isn't done yet. She's been a lethal goal scorer since her freshman year.

One-stop shopping has taken on new meaning for customers of the Acme supermarket just off the Black Horse Pike in Audubon. They can now add medical treatment to their grocery list. Prominently in the front of the Camden County supermarket is a recently opened clinic, staffed by a nurse-practitioner, that provides treatment for minor ailments, such as sore throats, fevers, flu, ear aches, and colds. "This is a good tool to use," said Brian Seeley, a Voorhees family physician who occasionally sees patients at the clinic.

If you live in Audubon Park, your neighbors are probably "the people you grew up with," says Mary Stokes, who moved there with her parents in 1941. Stokes is 74 now, and she and other residents love the villagelike coziness of this unusual Camden County municipality. Audubon Park is a single square mile between Nicholson Road, the Black Horse Pike, and Peter's Creek. It has no stores, schools, or churches, and the real estate is collective property. "There were supposed to be Audubon Parks all over America," says Kristin M. Szylvian, whose book The Mutual Housing Experiment - New Deal Communities for the Urban Middle Class was published in July by Temple University Press.
