As a desperation three-point shot by a Burlington player fell short at the buzzer, hundreds of Gloucester High fans charged onto the court to celebrate their team's tough win last night.

Mark Watermasysk, a 6-foot-6 senior center, scored 18 points and grabbed 13 rebounds, while sophomore guard Sean Gorman contributed eight assists, six steals and nine rebounds, helping top-seeded Gloucester outlast eighth-seeded Burlington, 59-56, in a South Jersey Group 1 quarterfinal game.

After seeing plans for a new riverfront promenade in Burlington City, several people at a special meeting Thursday night pressed the landscape architect for an answer to one question. "Can you give us a date when this will be done?" Jeri Waters asked. "You've been working on it for a while. " Waters and others said the plans looked exciting, but they wondered if it would be years, maybe decades, before the grassy 14-acre space along the Delaware River is beautified. Richard Newton, a partner with the Philadelphia-based Olin Studios, told the 100 people at the meeting in City Hall that the availability of funding would set the timetable.

After nearly a year of study, a prominent architectural-landscape company in Philadelphia will present its vision Thursday for improving the tired riverfront promenade in Burlington City. The grassy 14 acres along the Delaware River would be transformed into a more inviting space, with new park benches beneath a grove of shade trees; winding paths; changing art installations; designated areas for concerts, kite-flying events, and children's sports; and more, said Richard Newton, an Olin Studios partner who is working on the project.

The message on the billboard ("Save St. Paul School") outside the St. Paul School in Burlington City has become a rallying cry for a race against time. With the clock ticking, the school faces an uphill battle that will decide whether it opens next school year. The 144-year-old parish school in Burlington County has only about six weeks to raise $250,000 or be forced to close for the 2015-16 school year. "No one wants to see this place go," said principal William Robbins. "We're not going to let go. " The elementary school, which has educated generations of families, has embarked on an emotional appeal to the community.

Burlington City Realtor Christine Seiler has been nominated for the chamber of commerce's Citizen of the Year award more than once in the past, but as one of the chairs of the selection committee, she always pushed the nomination aside. This year her colleagues - producing many letters recommending her from chamber members and others - would not take no for an answer. Knowing her through her job at Haines and Haines Real Estate, her commitment to the Greater Burlington Chamber of Commerce, and countless hours of volunteer work for local charities, nominators saw Seiler as a great candidate for 2014 GBCOC Citizen of the Year.

On a wind-whipped, rain-soaked, sloppy field, Holy Cross running back Chris Liggio walked side by side with quarterback Brandon Simmons. If you hadn't seen him before the game, it would be impossible to tell that Liggio's uniform was ever white. He had just been running wild for an entire football game - diving, sliding, and dragging defenders through the mud at Burlington Township. Simmons, on the other hand, looked as if he'd just come from a photo shoot. His jersey was pristine.
