A member of the Cherry Hill Tax Crisis Committee last night asked the Township Council to reverse a recent zoning board decision allowing a nursing home to contribute to the township's Affordable Housing Trust Fund instead of setting aside a portion of the home's units for low- and moderate-income residents.

Two Cherry Hill developers filed separate complaints in Superior Court in Camden yesterday describing recent zoning decisions made by the municipality as "arbitrary" and "capricious. " Gary H. Kanalstein, Steven Shapiro and William Morowitz, who wanted to build an office building in a residential area at Greentree Road and Linden Avenue, said the Town Council was "arbitrary, capricious and unreasonable" for denying their petition Nov. 9 after the zoning board of adjustment approved the variance at its June 4 meeting.

MY ROOTS GO as far back as 1783, when Jean Jacob Schweppe created carbonated mineral water. In addition to the two big brands that make up my name, I've also got these under my roof: Sunkist Soda, 7UP, A&W, Canada Dry, Crush, Mott's, Squirt, Hawaiian Punch, Penafiel, Clamato, Schweppes, Venom Energy and Mr & Mrs T mixers. One of my two flagship brands is the oldest soft drink in the United States. I've taken many forms through acquisitions and divestments. My current form was spun off from Cadbury in 2008.

Hundreds of cars zigzag by the little log cabin every day. It's on such a tricky curve - where Old Lancaster Road intersects with Devon State Road in Devon - that there's seldom a chance to give it a good look. To notice, for instance, that the whitewashed chimney is inscribed "1734. " But, once upon a time, there was time. A teapot-shaped sign used to hang from a limb of a large tree, announcing the "Devon Garage Tea Room. " It was a popular stopping-off place for travelers making their way from Philadelphia to Lancaster when Old Lancaster Road was the main thoroughfare.

Like many healthy retirees, William and Myrtle Kingsbury of Moorestown weren't ready for senior-citizens housing until they hit their mid-80s. But they had known for a decade what they wanted: a spot in a continuing-care retirement community, or CCRC. There, they would get condominium-style living plus a guarantee of being cared for if they could no longer manage on their own. This promise of lifetime care is what draws residents to CCRCs, but such communities are vastly different from nursing homes.

The failed Hershey-Cadbury deal in January has opened a new rift between top management of Hershey Co. and the Hershey Trust philanthropy that controls the chocolate company, according to observers and a company source with direct knowledge of the relationship. This would be the second round of turmoil in three years between the trust, a sprawling philanthropic organization with prominent Republicans on its boards, and the candy company's top executives. Wall Street analysts say that they don't know which direction the company is heading, and that they have seen this before.

The Hershey Co. is exploring a solo bid for British candy-maker Cadbury P.L.C. after a joint bid with Italy's Ferrero S.p.A. did not get out of the gate, according to published reports. Hershey and candy-maker Ferrero, which also makes Nutella spread, had discussed a joint bid for Cadbury and arranged financing, but those talks collapsed Tuesday. A solo bid for Cadbury - whose products include Halls cough drops, Dentyne and Trident gum, and Swedish Fish - would be expensive for Hershey, based in central Pennsylvania's "Sweetest Place on Earth.

Cadbury P.L.C., one of the world's largest chocolate companies and a potential strategic partner for Pennsylvania's Hershey Co., has rebuffed a friendly $16.7-billion acquisition offer from food giant Kraft Foods Inc. in what some analysts believe could be a protracted and expensive battle for global chocolate market share. The Cadbury price could go higher and Hershey or other bidders could take part, analysts say. Mars Inc. closed on its huge acquisition of Wm. Wrigley Jr. Co. in 2008.

Bill Waterman lived in a nursing home once, and he does not want to go back. When he was growing up in western New York state, Waterman, 72, lived for eight years on the grounds of a public facility for the elderly and infirm. His parents ran the home and had to live on site. "I have a dread fear of institutions, of institutional living," Waterman said. "Things have changed a lot in 60 years, but . . . . People got adequate care, but I just felt somewhere inside me they didn't get the personal attention that somebody that age deserved.
