BELMAR, N.J. - A popular Shore resort pummeled by Sandy won't raise the price of its beach badges this summer after all. Belmar, in Monmouth County, had planned to increase the cost of its daily and seasonal badges to help pay for repairs to the beach and boardwalk, but high demand is helping to make the price hike unnecessary. Mayor Matthew Doherty said Belmar had been surprised by the number of people who want to help with its reconstruction. "It's pretty well publicized that we lost our entire boardwalk and that we'll have a new one by Memorial Day," he said.

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.

The people who work in the Bellmawr Borough Hall don't need a calendar to know that summer is near. The ringing telephones tell them. Callers want to know the cost of beach passes and how they can open an ice cream stand on the boardwalk. "We don't know the costs," said the borough clerk, Margaret Welsh. "We wish we could tell them. " Well, it's $40 for a season beach pass and $3.50 for a day badge for people 15 and older - in Belmar, Monmouth County. Welsh said municipal workers for Camden County's Bellmawr field up to 200 calls a week this time of year for Belmar.

On the Belmar boardwalk, the shutters of Fresh French Fries were still pulled shut last week. Pizzeria Pitstop II, across Ocean Avenue, was still boarded up. So was Surfin' Bird surfwear. The sea gulls crying under the blue May sky outnumbered the scattered sunbathers, even counting the fellows in windbreakers kicking around a soccer ball with their hound. Don't be misled by the still on the sand. It's not yet Memorial Day, but Belmar's 20 blocks of oceanfront are already the main front in New Jersey's Battle of Beach Fees.

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.

Everybody was being careful - police, the politicians, the people who could not stay away from the beach. But the caution killed a party that usually brings thousands of black college students and others to this beach community every summer. The annual beach party is an informal part of the Greekfest weekend activities, which begin in Philadelphia's Fairmount Park with the Greek Picnic. But concern about trouble and overcast skies throughout yesterday put a damper on the celebration.

Leading by two runs and just four outs away from capturing its first sectional baseball championship since 1977, St. Joseph of Hammonton suffered through a nightmare ending in yesterday's NJSIAA South Jersey Non-Public B final. St. Rose of Belmar scored nine sixth-inning runs - all with two outs - to erase a 3-1 deficit and outlast a dazed St. Joseph, 10-3, at sun-drenched Mercer County Park. "It just shows what a crazy game baseball can be," said losing pitcher Billy Augustine.

One Sunday every July, members of the Greek fraternities, having spent the day before partying in Philadelphia, come to this small town in numbers so vast that the population doubles, then triples in a matter of hours. The borough yesterday went through what is becoming a sort of annual nervous battening-down, with major road detours and closed businesses. The event has had its problems, with crowds breaking shop windows two years ago and a small riot in the early '90s, when MTV broadcast from the fraternities' beach party.

The mayor of Belmar, N.J., said yesterday that the rioting at Sunday's MTV sports and music festival was caused by "black youths in their 20s" who were yelling "a lot of Rodney King things" and who "came here from other parts of the state with the intent of causing trouble. " But two other people who witnessed the rioting, in which 28 people were injured and 28 others were arrested, said they did not believe that the unrest had anything to do with racial tension. They said such mayhem could be expected because there were simply too many people in a town too small to absorb them all. The riots erupted late Sunday afternoon, after the last musical performance of the two-day MTV Sports Festival, an outdoor event that combined live concerts from bands such as Arrested Development, Cause and Effect and Kris Kross with a roller-blade obstacle course, an aerobics class and other athletic activities.

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.
