Stefan Orn Arnarson gently places his grandmother's Victor Red Label 78 on the turntable and under the stylus of the Victrola. The bittersweetness of Fritz Kreisler's violin pours from the machine, which - like the original recording itself - was made in Camden nearly a century ago. "Goose bumps," says Arnarson, a sound designer who first heard Kreisler's haunting rendition of "Deep in My Heart, Dear" at his grandmother's home in Reykjavik, Iceland....

A PILE OF spareribs and turkey bones sits on Stephen Danley's otherwise empty plate in a Camden soul-food restaurant, and on his way up for seconds he also gets his second hug of the afternoon. The warm greetings that Danley receives at Corrine's Place on Haddon Avenue are an indication that the 6-foot-9 former power forward on the University of Pennsylvania basketball team isn't just studying Camden as an assistant professor of public policy at Rutgers-Camden. Danley's living it. "I decided I was going to really get to know Camden, block by block.

The police force that patrols Camden saw its ranks swell, if only temporarily, Thursday night, as newly knighted members of the community swore to uphold their duties as honorary community peacekeepers. Officers from the Camden County Police Department, which patrols only in the city, joined volunteers and city and county officials to hand out pretzels, flashlights, and T-shirts and hold small ceremonies for kids as they "knighted" them Blue Knights. Police and city officials have been engaged in a community interaction campaign since the force was established in May 2013.

A Camden County police officer's husband accused of leading a drug ring has a long criminal history, according to court records, including a 2006 incident in which authorities said he tried to pull a stolen 9mm handgun on a Collingswood police officer. Having a spouse with a record does not disqualify someone from becoming a police officer, Camden County Chief Scott Thomson said this week. Criminal justice experts agree but say the gravity of the crimes and how recently they occurred should play a role.

Ashley Bailey joined the Camden County police force in July 2013 , when young officers like herself began flooding the streets to quell violence in one of the nation's most dangerous cities. In the previously abandoned, two-story redbrick rowhouse where she lived in the Liberty Park neighborhood, she checked on neighbors - "You guys OK down there?" she would ask - and parked her cruiser out front. Bailey, authorities said, was also a mole. Her husband, they said, helped lead a drug ring that sold $1.2 million of narcotics annually, dealing heroin and crack cocaine from the rowhouses of Camden to the Shore towns of Atlantic County.

Tyree Rodgers didn't want to throw passes anymore. He wanted to catch them. "He had been a receiver at the end of last year, and that's where he wanted to stay," Camden Catholic coach Nick Strom said of Rodgers, a junior who has emerged as one of the most improved players on one of South Jersey's most improved teams. Rodgers said he was "frustrated" as a quarterback last season. He figured his future, for the rest of his high school career and in college, was at wide receiver.

It has been a rough two years for Scott Smith of National Park since he lost his job in manufacturing. However, he remained optimistic Tuesday alongside the other hopeful candidates who filled the Collingswood Grand Ballroom at the Camden County Job Fair. "I'm looking for anything," said Smith, 55. "Two years is a long time. " While the attendees looking for a job represented a wide spread of age and education levels, the potential employers were no less diverse.

Sal Henderson's big day included a sack in the first half, an interception in the second half, and a crown during the break in between. "I've never been on the homecoming court before," said Henderson, a senior linebacker who was named Camden's homecoming king at intermission of the Panthers' 27-5 victory over Bishop Eustace on Saturday at Farnham Park. Henderson and junior safety Dustin Singleton led the defense as Camden, the No. 5 team in The Inquirer's South Jersey rankings, improved to 7-0 overall and clinched a share of the West Jersey Football League's Royal Division.
