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.

MOUNT HOLLY The elderly man with the salt-and-pepper beard lay on the concrete floor of his jail cell naked and covered in his own feces. In another cell, a father with cardiac problems feared for his health, repeatedly telling his fiancée no one had taken him to hospital appointments to check his pacemaker. Both men, incarcerated at the same time, eventually died in the Burlington County Jail. "Natural causes," the medical examiner ruled in the Dec. 30 death of Robert Taylor, 75, and the Feb. 25 death of Jerome Iozzia, 50. "Unfortunate," the county Prosecutor's Office called Taylor's death in response to a query from Amnesty International.
