Hello there Dana was kind of flu-ish one Sunday night in November 2009, but she joined her roommate Maria at the bar below their apartment anyway. Dana was not thrilled to learn that the guy Maria was seeing and one of his friends would be joining them. She didn't bother changing out of her sweatpants. Matt, the friend, strolled in wearing Yankees garb. Dana's apartment was in Hoboken, but her heart was firmly in Philadelphia. The Washington Township native still smarted from her Phillies' then-recent World Series loss to those damn Yankees.

She wasn't even born when her father was making history. But Princess Elettra Marconi Giovanelli, the daughter of legendary Italian physicist Guglielmo Marconi, has faithfully spread the story of his work, sharing it this summer in New Jersey as part of a North American tour that also took her to schools and museums in Massachusetts and Canada. She visited the Infoage Science History Museum in the 2200 block of Marconi Road in Wall Township, N.J., to commemorate the 101st anniversary of her father's visit to the site on June 30, 1913.

Smokers are welcome in fewer outdoor places as bans against lighting up in parks and recreational areas are adopted with increasing frequency in the region. Even some beaches are off-limits. Burlington County joined 183 other counties and municipalities in New Jersey on Wednesday when it snuffed out smoking in its parks, according to the Global Advisors Smokefree Policy (GASP), a nonprofit that promotes the trend. In Philadelphia, smoking is prohibited at city playgrounds, pools, and rec centers; New York City extends its ban to sidewalks in some business districts, according to GASP.

BELMAR, N.J. - The first major boardwalk reconstruction at the Jersey Shore since Sandy pummeled the state got under way Wednesday, with the threat of a lawsuit prompting Belmar officials to drop their plan to use tropical rain-forest wood to rebuild it. Mayor Matthew Doherty said the resort bowed to pressure from environmental groups that had threatened to seek a court injunction against the plan to use ipe, a type of Brazilian rain forest wood that...

BELMAR, N.J. - Gov. Chris Christie says "it weighs on me" that some people who ignored his evacuation order as Hurricane Sandy bore down on New Jersey later died because they refused to leave their low-lying homes. "That weighs on me a bit - maybe if I was a little bit tougher they wouldn't have died," Christie said at a town hall meeting Thursday, after an elementary school girl asked what he would do differently to respond to the late October superstorm. The Republican governor has gotten almost uniform praise for his handling of the worst storm in state history, and his job approval rating has skyrocketed in public opinion polls taken after the storm.

DEVELOPER David Grasso hopes to bring a "state-of-the-art live-music venue" to Fishtown. Grasso, a musician who plays guitar in Brothers from Another and who owns the record label F.O.F Entertainment, previously tried to open a House of Blues at the Grande (15th & Chestnut) and along Washington Avenue in South Philly. "Between the TLA and Susquehanna Bank Center there is a gap in that space for a quality entertainment venue, for a place that bands want to play and people want to go and have a quality experience," Grasso said yesterday.

Gloucester Catholic's Cody Brown said he likes to be "completely clueless" on the mound. In Tuesday's sectional title game against two-time and defending champion St. Rose of Belmar, ignorance was bliss for the junior lefthander. Facing an unfamiliar lineup, Brown threw a complete game, allowing just five singles and striking out seven in Gloucester Catholic's 4-2 victory in the South Jersey Non-Public B final before a large crowd at Joe Barth Sr. Field in Brooklawn. Brown also made the defensive play of the game - by happy accident.

Sam Tropiano has been around baseball long enough to know that the team with the more experienced pitcher, more talented catcher, and more potent lineup doesn't always win the game. He just wishes he hadn't learned that lesson again yesterday. "They outplayed us," Tropiano said after his Bishop Eustace Prep team lost to the Purple Roses of St. Rose of Belmar, 8-4, in the Non-Public South B championship game at Mercer County Park. "I thought we had the better pitcher, the better catcher, the better lineup," he said.
