When John DeAngelis and his nine siblings were growing up on a Bellmawr farm, helping out in the fields was just what you did. So was fighting for your country. John, Lewis, Anthony, Peter, Vincent, and David DeAngelis all served in the U.S. Army during World War II. After the war, all six brothers came home to South Jersey, got married, and - like their brother Lawrence and sisters Rosie, Annie, and Virginia - went on to live estimable lives. For instance, Vincent, Anthony, Lawrence, and David became partners in Oaklyn Gulf, a service station the family still owns and operates as an auto repair business.

For nearly two years, a clean white warehouse stood empty in the middle of a bustling industrial park where nitrogen canisters and sheet metal were being produced. Then in June, Compassionate Sciences announced it had obtained the approvals it needed to begin growing thousands of marijuana plants inside the building in Bellmawr, a Camden County borough of 12,000 less than 10 miles from Philadelphia. Now, just in time for autumn, the first harvest of the sweet-smelling crop is being processed while the second is expected to be ready in three weeks.

It's a sunny morning in Bellmawr, but a thunderous boom pierces the air. Then another, and another. The bangs echo for blocks. At nearby businesses, the earth shakes. Photos rattle on walls, startling sleepy residents, but the skies remain clear, because, although it sounds like a storm, Mother Nature has nothing to do with it. The small town, located where Route 42 and I-295 and other thoroughfares converge, is in the midst of construction that has sent residents complaining to their neighbors, their mayor, the New Jersey Department of Transportation - and some to lawyers.

Rain and ice caused a pileup of a dozen vehicles Sunday that damaged a fire engine on a New Jersey Turnpike overpass Sunday. The trouble began when firefighters and an EMS crew responded to a one-car accident on Route 42 in Bellmawr, Fire Chief Jim Burleigh said. The responders blocked the road with a fire engine to protect workers at the scene, Burleigh said. As the EMS crew worked to treat the driver involved in the accident, another car slid on the ice and hit the fire engine.

A second medical marijuana dispensary is expected to open in South Jersey next month, now that the state Department of Health has issued a permit to Compassionate Sciences Inc. allowing it to begin operations at a Bellmawr site. "We anticipate opening the first week of October, once we get our product harvested and lab-tested by the state and approved for distribution," Compassionate Sciences spokesman Andrei Bogolubov said Monday after the nonprofit received the approval. The company is leasing an 18,000-square-foot former T-shirt factory in an industrial park in the Camden County community, not far from the Atlantic City Expressway.

THE HALLOWED ground, where the heartbroken leave love letters to dead spouses and toys to children they've lost, sits above highways that some say are cursed, particularly during rush hour. For decades, the curves, exits and ramps that make up the I-295/I-76/Route 42 interchange near the New St. Mary's Cemetery have tangled together in Bellmawr, Camden County, like Christmas lights stuffed into a box. New Jersey's Department of Transportation has long vowed to untangle the mess, but its solution has created another knot, piling church, state and people with loved ones in the cemetery into a jam of emotions and court proceedings.

Like a Colonial-era militia, an assortment of people wearing a hodgepodge of uniforms marched through the heart of Bellmawr on July 4 carrying a "Save the Historic Hugg-Harrison House" banner. The borough's annual Independence Day parade along Browning Road took this earnest band of history lovers past the 18th-century structure, which played a noteworthy role in the Revolutionary War - but may nevertheless be torn down for the I-295 and Route 42 Direct Connection project. "Our point is not to be against the freeway.

The Bellmawr Borough Council voted Thursday to renew the liquor license of Johnnies Liquors, the West Browning Road store implicated, along with a coin laundry across the street, in a May 26 drug bust that targeted two trafficking networks. "So we don't end up in a lawsuit costing us thousands of dollars, reluctantly, yes," Councilman James D'Angelo said when asked for his vote. The decision disappointed the protesters who have sought for weeks to shut down the businesses. The small group of residents has regularly stood outside the store and sometimes the laundry in an effort to deter patrons.

"You're not going to shop there, are you?" Bobbie Lynn Riebel stood outside Johnnies Liquors in Bellmawr, where she'd been for two hours. Matthew Evans, 26, in town from Maryland for work, was on the doorstep, hand poised above the knob. "Is there another liquor store?" Evans asked. "Two lights down!" Bobbie Lynn and her husband, Don Riebel, said together, pointing. They've become accustomed to delivering the line. Evans headed off. Since Memorial Day, the Riebels have spent most weekday evenings and all day on weekends here, on the corner of West Browning Road and Princeton Avenue, directing patrons away from Johnnies.

After the foursome had spent a pleasant evening - especially notable since Denbo was on a blind date - the men were driving home after having dropped off the women. It was then that Bass told Denbo that he had taken a liking to Denbo's blind date.

Maureen McLoone, drum major during the glory years of the Royaleers, last marched down Kings Highway in 1968. But she'll lead the formation once again Monday as former members of Haddonfield's pioneering all-girl drum and bugle corps, many of them grandmothers now, reassemble for the borough's Memorial Day parade. From 1954 until 1977, the Royaleers - originally called the Christ the King Cadets, later the Royaleer Mounties - were a parade fixture in the borough and beyond. The 100-strong, precision-drilled, spit-and-polish group took home regional and national trophies and exemplified the community's patriotism and pride.

All those years, Hagerty was the Eagles' president, and Mr. McGlinchey, for most of the time, was general manager. While doing that, at times he was also coach and head coach.

Jim Ross arrived one hour before South Jersey's newest medical marijuana dispensary was set to open for the first time Monday morning. He remained in his car while an elderly woman in a wheelchair and two other patients went into the Compassionate Sciences Alternative Treatment Center in Bellmawr, Camden County. "I was too excited and wasn't sure whether to go in or not," said Ross, a Pine Hill resident with multiple sclerosis, one of a dozen ailments that qualify a patient to use marijuana in New Jersey.
