An estimate $5,000 in damage to about 15 stones was discovered Sunday morning by the cemetery's management, police reported. Authorities believe there was more than one person involved because of the weight of some stones at the Rodef Shalom Cemetery on the Black Horse Pike in the Cardiff section of the township. The Egg Harbor Township Police Department is asking anyone with information to contact township detectives at (609)

In Mary Vogel's case, it all came down to a tenth of a mile. Vogel, 34, a resident of Roberts Avenue in Bellmawr who sends her 13-year- old son to the Bell Oaks Elementary School on Bell Road, lives about 1.9 miles from the school and has been denied busing for her son. Busing is available only to families living more than two miles from an elementary school, school officials said. Vogel and about 30 other parents at a packed Bellmawr school board meeting asked the board to shorten the two-mile busing limit, because, they said, many students must walk across the heavily traveled Black Horse Pike and Browning Road on their way to school.

Planning Board solicitor Thomas Heim said last night that he believes a truck driving school that has raised the hackles of its neighbors is a lawful use of the property. "In my opinion, and my opinion may be wrong, this is a trade school and is a permitted use," Heim said. He encouraged residents to try to work out a compromise with the school on their own. In October, the Planning Board granted permission to the Canterbury Career Schools truck driving school to open its business on a site on the Black Horse Pike near Woodbury-Turnersville Road without submitting a detailed plan.

After waging a 20-month war against a local trucking school that residents contend is noisy and disruptive to their neighborhood, several of them shook their heads in silent disapproval last night as the planning board voted to reaffirm the school's right to exist. With its 7-1 vote, the board essentially declared that Frank Lauletta, owner of the Canterbury Careers Trucking School on the Black Horse Pike, did not misrepresent the school's operations to the planning board when the school was granted approval in October 1992.

J. Frank Donohue, 78, one of South Jersey's premier milers in the mid-1930s and the founder of the first statewide track meet for parochial schools, died Sunday at Silver Court Nursing Home, Cherry Hill. A Runnemede resident since 1949, he was born in Jersey City. In 1959, Mr. Donohue created the Knights of Columbus Meet - now the South Jersey Parochial Track and Field Championships - and oversaw it for many years. For some time, the meet was known informally as "Donohue's Track Meet," and was the only statewide track meet for parochial schools.

Denying parents' requests for expanded busing, the Bellmawr Board of Education last night reaffirmed its policy of providing bus service to elementary school students only if they live more than two miles from school. Earlier in its meeting, the board received an eight-page petition signed by 118 borough residents who wanted the district to provide bus service to elementary school students who live within the two-mile limit. The parents who signed the petition contended that it is dangerous for students to walk across the heavily traveled Black Horse Pike and Browning Road on their way to school.

When Harry Vogel and his wife, Mary Lynn, moved from the Fairview section of Camden to a house on the east side of Bellmawr in August, they thought it was a change for the better. But some of those feelings were spoiled in September when they tried to put their 13-year-old son on the bus to the Bell Oaks Upper Elementary School, which is 1.9 miles from their Roberts Avenue home. He was denied busing by the school administration. "I won't let my kid walk it," said Harry Vogel, 44. He contends that the heavily traveled intersection of Browning Road and the Black Horse Pike is too dangerous for his son to cross on his daily trek to the school, which is on Bell Road, on Bellmawr's west side.

A bicyclist died Sunday evening after he was hit by an SUV on the Black Horse Pike in Egg Harbor Township. Police have identified the 19-year-old victim as Patrick Dutton of nearby Mays Landing, also in Atlantic County. Shortly after 6:30 p.m., the bicycle was struck by an eastbound 2005 Ford Explorer driven by Steven Rando, 40, of Egg Harbor Township, according to police. The bicycle was apparently in the roadway, instead of on the paved shoulder, judging from evidence at the scene, according to police spokesman Lt. Robert Gray.

For decades, Gloucester Township has yearned to earn a place on the regional retailing map. But the construction of an upscale discount shopping complex in the Blackwood section is provoking mixed emotions. Gloucester Premium Outlets "will be the largest economic development project in the history of our community," says Mayor David Mayer, who describes the center as "a $40 million [property tax] ratable, when all is said and done. " The mayor's choice of words is important. While he expects the township ultimately will collect $1.4 million annually, the outlets between Route 42 and the Black Horse Pike will not pay property taxes in full for five years.

Stephen Procida filled two hours explaining his love of carpentry - a passion, he said, fed by the thrill of turning middle-of-the-night ideas into creations that "wow" customers. His "babies" is how the South Jersey furniture-maker referred to the tables, cabinets and chairs he coaxes from planks of pine and spruce. He gets "emotional" when they leave his Washington Township store, Capture the Southwest, Procida said. Then came the shocking confession about high school woodshop.

ATLANTIC CITY - The story of Atlantic City has always been one of marketing and public relations. In 1954, the city's centennial, the Press Photographers Association was so enamored it bought a plaque for the outside of Boardwalk Hall to thank the place for being so nice (and such good material!). Recently the casinos banded together to form the Atlantic City Alliance, a nonprofit that hired a New York ad firm, Euro RSCG, to come up with yet another marketing plan for the city.
