Tara Lorenzetti spent many days last summer on the Atlantic City Expressway, stuck in traffic, trying to while away the minutes in her family's car. That time, tedious to some, was a tropical vacation compared with what she faced at the end of the trip. Lorenzetti, a 16-year-old senior at Mainland Regional and the Mustangs' former No. 1 singles player in tennis, underwent radiation treatments last summer in Philadelphia to treat the cancer she was diagnosed with in February.

Comcast Corp. and Liberty Property Trust have set their sights on a headquarters tower for the cable giant that will send the Center City Philadelphia skyline to new heights. Wouldn't it be great if they shared the view with the rest of us? One thing the city sorely lacks, many visitors say, is a high perch from which to survey its wonders. (The view from City Hall tower, and the capacity of the elevator that reaches it, are limited.) An observation deck would make Comcast chief Brian L. Roberts' new corporate home even more of a signature building.

Highlighted by the collection of the late Douglassville antiques dealer Robert J. "Bob" Merritt, Pook and Pook's two-day sale next weekend of period furniture, fine art, and accessories promises to be one of the Downingtown auction company's strongest.

For generations, valiant men and women pulled surfboats and buoys from its rough-hewn cedar shelter, then plunged into the sea toward mariners shipwrecked off a dangerous coast. But time is running out to rescue the former Ocean City Lifesaving Station at Fourth Street and Atlantic Avenue. Putting an end to 10 years of legal wrangling, a state Superior Court judge has set a May 20 deadline for someone, anyone, to come up with $1.1 million to buy the landmark, which was built in 1885 and renovated into a home 50 years later.

Julian Stone's balloon is as bright as the town's spirit at Ambler's fifth annual Octoberfest. And atop the shoulders of his father, Anthony, he has a bird's-eye view. The street fair on Butler Avenue attracted several hundred people Saturday.

BINKY THE POLAR BEAR SUCCUMBS TO AN INFECTION Binky, the polar bear known and loved for swiping fearlessly at interlopers, has died from a bacterial infection. Visitors gathered quietly Thursday at the empty polar bear cage at the Alaska Zoo in Anchorage as word spread that he had died earlier in the day from toxoplasmosis. Veterinarians kept a vigil through the night Wednesday after the half-ton bear was diagnosed with the parasite-borne infection that had claimed his 16- year-old mate, Nuka, one week ago yesterday.

Hall of Fame quarterback Sonny Jurgensen, who knew defenses the way Picasso knew paint, felt that the Washington Redskins were headed for a long season even before it began. "I saw the Redskins were in trouble as soon as I saw the schedule," said Jurgensen, who has been a Redskins radio broadcaster since 1981. "Even though the team seemed improved from last year, I just knew the early part of the schedule was going to be too tough for them. "When you go from playing at the division winner [the New York Giants]

It didn't matter that the Giants won 13-10 instead of 52-0. Or that the victim was lowly Cleveland instead of Philadelphia or Washington. It didn't matter that they played utterly rotten offense and turned the ball over twice. Or that they looked simply awful against one of the softest teams on their schedule this year. This is how far the Super Bowl champion Giants have fallen. With two losses and a bird's-eye view of the division basement, they have stopped worrying about playing well and started worrying about not losing.

Amid the brilliant perennials and neatly trimmed hedges at the Chester County Flower Show, a 20-foot clock tower looms overhead, sending thousands of gallons of water through the mouths of four gargoyles as each hour ticks by. One of 32 displays at the show, which closes today at 6 p.m., the computerized tower is programmed to shoot water at every quarter-hour from each of the gargoyles perched atop its copper-and-slate roof. The exhibit, considered to be one of the most sophisticated computerized displays in a regional flower show, is a joint venture by two companies brought together through the flower show.

The large, hand-colored 1849 map of Gloucester and Salem Counties was brittle, frayed, and yellowing when it was donated to Richard Stockton College. But officials at the Atlantic County school immediately recognized its historical value. The 41/2-by-31/2-foot map reflected South Jersey when Mexican War hero Zachary Taylor was president, a gold rush was under way in California, and crossing the Delaware River meant taking a boat. The roads and boundaries of the counties and municipalities were meticulously drawn.

THE DAILY NEWS took to the skies Tuesday to get a bird's-eye view of the jaw-dropping damage Hurricane Sandy inflicted on the Jersey Shore from Long Beach Island to Ocean City. Numerous roadways were covered in murky floodwaters in Harvey Cedars and Beach Haven. Private boats were piled together or moored on their sides, like a child's broken toys, in North Beach and Ship Bottom. Signs of flooding were remarkably less obvious from a helicopter above Brigantine and Atlantic City, which lost a sizable chunk of the north end of its landmark Boardwalk.

US Airways Group Inc. said it purchased technology from defense and security company Saab Sensis Corp. of East Syracuse, N.Y., to track planes on the ground at the carrier's hubs in Philadelphia, Charlotte, N.C., and Phoenix. Financial details were not disclosed. The software shows a map of the airfield on a screen and provides the airline with real-time visibility of where planes are. Until now, ground operations have relied on binoculars and radios to know the location and status of flights at gates, ramps areas and on runways, said Saab Sensis spokesman Rob Conrad.

The entry hall to Flora Becker's striking Center City condominium at the Residences at the Ritz-Carlton is lined with art. The living room features a handsome Steinway baby grand piano. The kitchen, with its glass backsplash and walnut cabinetry, is a testament to sleek modern efficiency and elegance.    But those are mere distractions. The main event asserts itself within seconds: It's the view of Philadelphia's core - City Hall, its courtyard, William Penn and his hat, and a skyscape that simply will not be ignored.

The universal character of fun is what makes Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey's "Greatest Show on Earth" just that, and the circus has the guy to bring it. Ringling, in town from now until April 29, is marking its 137th season with what it calls a "Bellobration. " The production centers on Bello Nock - a hilarious daredevil with bright orange hair in a straight-up 'do. This year, in planning the show around Bello, the organizers also went for an around-the-world experience that draws together performers from many nations.

What it is: A cozy place to meet a friend for breakfast or lunch that specializes in Hawaiian recipes, breads and coffees from the Islands. Owner Uilani Talbert is from Honolulu. There are two Aloha Cafes: one in West Chester that is cafeteria style with a bird's-eye view of bustling Gay Street, the other in the Shoppes at Jenner's Village in Jennersville that has dining-in service. What we like: The Hawaiian kalua pork (a slow-roasted, smoked, shredded pulled pork) sandwich served with scallions and shredded lettuce is delicious, especially in a tomato basil wrap - and a bargain at $5.49.
