The nation's largest health-care philanthropy, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, has awarded an $84,070 grant to Cadbury in Cherry Hill to study the feasibility of establishing a "Life Care at Home" program in South Jersey. The study will take about one year. Franklin S. Gillet, executive director of Cadbury, a nonprofit retirement community, will run the project.

George Pappas, a member of the committee, made the request on behalf of the committee and another township resident, Rose Caulder, a critic of the board's decision. In October, the board granted a variance to Cadbury Corp.

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.
