BURLINGTON, Vt. - Although it is the very essence of Vermont, Burlington is decidedly not one of the quaint village towns that define the popular image of the Green Mountain State. Burlington in August is a lot like Philadelphia in August, without the oppressive heat and the odor of trash, but with cool breezes and spectacular views of one of North America's largest glacial lakes. Its magnificent natural setting and lively Vermont culture make it an ideal summer oasis for Philadelphians looking to try a different flavor of New England - a place where some of the best craft beer in the country flows like water, where bikers glide into sunsets over Lake Champlain, where cars really do stop to let you cross the street, where parking is anywhere from cheap to free, and people eat local because, up here, being a "locavore" is positively the best choice.

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. Gloucester had survived, despite being rattled by a furious full-court press that caused it to lose a 13-point lead. 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.

Ryan Shinn played in 31 games for the Northern Burlington County baseball team this season. It was the one game he missed that struck a chord with Greyhounds coach Rick Doppler. "We knew for a long time that he wasn't going to be there," Doppler said of the May 16 game against Haddonfield in the quarterfinals of the Joe Hartmann Diamond Classic. Shinn missed the game because of a family commitment. But he had a message for his teammates. "He told our players before the game, 'You guys can win this without me,' " Doppler said.

The Greyhounds will compete in its first state baseball championship in school history. The NJSIAA has been conducting a state baseball tournament since 1971, so it's been a long time.

After decades of neglect, the stately mansion built along the Delaware River in Burlington City for industrialist Andrew McNeal in 1890 is facing almost certain demolition. But few city officials think the historic structure next to the shuttered U.S. Pipe manufacturing plant he founded is worth sparing, given the degree of deterioration. A 2001 fire at the mansion capped 50 years of abandonment, leaving a crumbling, three-story masonry skeleton vulnerable to vandals who have spread ghost stories about the place while posting shaky YouTube videos filmed from inside.
