New Jersey can no longer claim America's most dangerous city, but it just might boast the safest. Brick Township, in Ocean County, nabs that honor in the 2005 rankings released today by Morgan Quitno Press. The private research and publishing company specializes in state and city reference books. Its rankings of cities with at least 75,000 residents are based on FBI crime statistics. Nationally, Brick notched only No. 5 in 2004 on the Lawrence, Kan.-based publisher's golden list, behind Newton, Mass.

BRICK TOWNSHIP, N.J. - State authorities Saturday recovered the body of a Brick Township who drowned when the kayak she and her neighbor were riding in capsized on the Manasquan River. Robin Hoffarth, 49, and the neighbor - identified only as a 45-year-old Brick Township woman - had gone out before dusk Friday and were on their way back home when the kayak capsized about 10:30 p.m. The younger woman swam to shore and alerted her husband, who called police. The kayak was found about an hour later, and divers found Hoffarth's body about 12:40 a.m. Authorities were trying to determine what had caused the kayak to capsize.

BRICK TOWNSHIP, N.J. - The remains of a shipwreck buried beneath 20 feet of sand recently unearthed by crews rebuilding a seawall in the Normandy Beach section of this Ocean County municipality may be a historically significant treasure. State archeologists will seek to determine whether a pile of timbers and a wooden, barrel-shaped windlass uncovered as workers tried to pound a steel beam into the sand - breaking the pile-driving equipment twice - are pieces of the 19th-century ship Ayreshire.

Victims of Sandy at the Jersey Shore will be getting some help navigating the daunting financial choices they have ahead of them. The Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund on Monday gave a $600,000 grant to a nonprofit group called Operation Hope. It will offer free financial counseling from trained experts in Brick Township. The charity is run by Mary Pat Christie, the wife of the governor. She said she was told by leaders of hurricane relief in Florida that many storm victims had limited financial knowledge, adding that she doesn't want that to happen here.

Brick Patrolman Mark Nixon suffered a fractured rib, sprained knee, bruised elbow and multiple abrasions in the April 18 incident, which was made public yesterday. Authorities say Nixon stopped the truck driven by Ronald DeFreitas and soon learned there was a warrant for his arrest.

BRICK TOWNSHIP, N.J. - It was more eye-opener than heartbreaker. With just one senior in the starting lineup, Delsea wasn't in a now-or-never situation in Wednesday night's Group 3 state boys' basketball semifinals. The Crusaders hope to make these appearances regularly, starting with next season. But they will have to play with more defensive intensity and offensive tenacity to succeed this deep in the state tournament, according to coach Tom Freeman. "We have some young guys who have to get better," Freeman said after Delsea lost, 83-49, to Central Jersey champion Ewing in a fast-paced game at Brick Memorial.

This sturdy brick house is straight out of central casting for Americana. Vintage 1860s, surrounded by gardens, it is sweetly simple yet with a certain grace. It even has what real estate agents call "curb appeal. " On a quiet street in historic Burlington City, which has bragging rights as one of the oldest settled towns along the Delaware (1677), this house seems a perfect reflection of the town itself. "We fell in love with it as soon as we saw it advertised on the Internet," says Christine Kong, not realizing the irony of such a juxtaposition.
