Bill Fisher and his wife, Connie Correia Fisher, sat in a booth at the Pop Shop bickering over when they first got the idea to open a family-friendly restaurant amid the trendy eateries along Haddon Avenue in Collingswood. They finally agreed they had talked about it before their son, Holden, now 4, was born, "but once we had a baby, we realized there was no place in town we could go to dinner with him," Correia Fisher said. "We also realized a lot of people were moving into town with kids, and there was a need for a casual family restaurant.

The scene was repeated countless times. During a football game, Herb Fisher would be his intense self on the sidelines, usually pleading with the officials to give his team the call. In the middle of an animated moment, Fisher would spot a reporter, stop yelling at the officials in mid-sentence, and extend his hand and ask how things were going. Fisher, who died Saturday at the age of 69 after battling pancreatic cancer, had a trademark smile that could light up a room. He also had the ability to make people laugh.

Willingboro coach Nelson Hayspell knew that if his team was going to climb back into the Burlco/Olympic Liberty Division title hunt, the Chimeras would have to stop shooting themselves in the foot. "We've been hurting ourselves with a lot of mistakes, penalties, turnovers," Hayspell said. "When the kids sat down and watched the film this week, they realized that we've been our own worst enemy. " That's why last night's nearly error-free 13-3 victory over Seneca - played in impossible conditions at waterlogged Carl Lewis Stadium - had the Chimeras howling for joy all the way to the locker room.

Two-year-old Dahlia Rogers was punched and kicked, beaten with a brush, raped, sodomized and murdered. After her body was found, her father, Vincent Pratt, 31, told detectives he had merely smacked her with his hand and bounced her up and down by her stomach because she was pretending she couldn't walk down the steps of their Olney home last July. In court yesterday, prosecutor Bill Fisher argued for a conviction of first- or second-degree murder, calling the crime "one of the most vicious, horrendous murders" he had ever seen.

Classmates, teammates and standout inside linebackers for the Seneca football team, Sam Pawlikowski and Frankie Caterina have much more in common than most high school seniors. "He even works at my father's restaurant," Caterina said. Said Pawlikowski: "The kid [Caterina] is my best friend. " That connection works wonders on the football field, especially when the duo is trying to help the Seneca defense shut down an opposing offense. "If he doesn't get there, I'll get there," Caterina said.

It sometimes takes a new football program a decade before it becomes an NJSIAA playoff contender. It took Seneca two years. It sometimes takes a new football program a decade before it wins a league championship. It sometimes takes a new football program several seasons of growing pains before its finishes with a winning record. For directing Seneca to a very successful season, Bill Fisher has been named The Inquirer's South Jersey football coach of the year. When Fisher was hired, he looked at the job as a welcome challenge.

If there was ever any doubt of the faith Paul VI High coach John Doherty puts in senior quarterback Khaalig Burroughs and senior wideout Jakwail Bailey, it was erased last night. No, it wasn't the three touchdowns they combined to score against Seneca, although those played a large part in Paul VI's 26-21 win over the visiting Golden Eagles in a West Jersey Football League Constitution Division matchup. It wasn't Burroughs' 11 completions for 135 yards or Bailey's five receptions for 73 yards, either.
