Burlington City officials gathered in a gravel lot on the Delaware on Tuesday to cheer ambitious plans for a community rebirth they hoped would mirror that of Bethlehem, Pa., after the steel plant there closed - though without a casino. John Callahan - who was mayor of Bethlehem for the last 10 years, when the Sands Casino was built around the abandoned steel plant there as part of an entertainment, retail, and housing complex - is now affiliated with a politically connected law firm whose principals want to invest in Burlington's desolate waterfront.

A renewal appears to be stirring in Burlington City, one year after city officials launched a strategy to reverse the fortunes of the depressed community on the Delaware. On a warm day last week the subtle signs were there, from the begonias and plum marigolds planted around the downtown trees, to the customers filling the seats at a sidewalk cafe, to the stream of cars crawling down High Street. Signs on two storefront windows announced a new brewery and a hair salon are coming soon, words of hope that replaced the dreariness of empty, darkened buildings that have marred the downtown in recent years.

Mitch Walker can pitch. He also can hit. He just has trouble doing both in the same game. "Every since I was little, when I pitch I can't seem to hit," Walker said. Double duty wasn't a difficulty for Walker in the quarterfinals of the Joe Hartmann Diamond Classic on Saturday. The senior righthander pitched a complete game and also hit a three-run home run to lead Pennsville to an 8-1 victory over Northern Burlington in a clash of top-3 teams at Washington Township. "This is huge for our program," Pennsville coach Matt O'Brien said.

The result doesn't always tell the exact story and that was certainly the case two years ago for current Northern Burlington senior lefthander Zack Gakeler. As a sophomore he was 0-6, but his 3.00 ERA was more of an indication of how he pitched than the won-loss record. Since then he has earned a baseball scholarship to the University of Pittsburgh and has become one of the top pitchers in South Jersey. Last season he was 9-1 with 91 strikeouts as Northern Burlington won the Central Jersey Group 3 championship.

The former Burlington Center Mall, now the Marketplace at Burlington, hasn't been right for a long time - it's a shell of what was once a healthy retail center and community draw. Now, there are not only random vacancies of gated storefronts, but whole swaths sitting dark and empty. On any given weekday, security guards easily outnumber shoppers. Even on a recent Friday at 5:30 p.m., after the work and school day, it was dead. A half-dozen people sat in the food court and a sprinkling of shoppers walked around.

The Northern Burlington baseball team received new uniforms this season, but Zach Gakeler still had use for his old jersey. He shoved it in his equipment bag as a reminder. "So I can remember what happened at the end of last season," Gakeler said. The senior lefthander and his teammates arrived for Friday's clash with rival Burlington Township with a little extra motivation and left their home field with a little extra satisfaction. "This was payback," Gakeler said after Northern Burlington's 5-3 victory over Burlington Township in a Burlington County League Liberty Division game.
