A week ago, Camden County Metro Police Chief Scott Thomson promised to make restitution to a single mother if it turned out his department had botched its investigation of the theft of her car from outside her Benson Street home in January. Since then, Michelle Perez, 32, who lives and works in the city, has heard nothing from the police about any restitution she might receive, she said Thursday. Perez, an Air Force veteran, said Camden police came to her house Wednesday morning to get copies of documents related to the theft that she had collected since the ordeal began.

From his Chester Springs office, Tim Jefferis saw the hail start to fall from the sky in chunks Thursday afternoon, pummeling cars and causing passing drivers to seek shelter under trees. Then came the noise. "It was crazy," said Jefferis, a vice president at Penn Liberty Bank. "We were waiting for the windows to break. It almost sounded like the water was coming through the ceiling. . . . I've never seen anything like it. " When the storm passed, Jefferis and his colleagues ventured outside to survey the damage, which included dozens of dents on the roof of his car. Later, Jefferis learned he'd gotten off easy.

Michelle Perez is angrier at the Camden police than she is at the thief who stole her 1991 Chrysler LeBaron in January. Perez, who lives and works in the city, said she had no expectations of the thief. The police, she was confident, would help her find the white sedan she had bought used and paid more than $2,000 to fix. "With the level of technology that's available, all they had to do is punch my information into a computer," Perez said in an interview Thursday. Perez alleges, however, that Camden Metro Police refused to investigate.

BACK IN 1850, Dr. Jonathan Pitney, an open-air enthusiast, saw an opening to turn Absecon Island into a health resort, if only he could get people from those polluted cities of Philadelphia and Camden there. He got a heady civil engineer, Richard Osborne, to build a train line over to the place - which Osborne renamed "Atlantic City" - and by the 1870s, a half-million shoobies were coming there each summer by train. Rail-line conductor Alexander Boardman proposed a newfangled way of getting the people to the beach itself from the station - a "Boardwalk.

THE WIDOW of the man who was driving the Porsche that crashed and killed actor Paul Walker sued Porsche on Monday, claiming design flaws caused both men to die in the fiery crash in November. The wrongful death lawsuit by Kristine Rodas says her husband, Roger Rodas , was driving at 55 mph - not the nearly 95 mph claimed by investigators - before the crash. And even though Roger was driving a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT capable of more than 200 mph, Kristine's lawsuit says the vehicle lacked a proper crash cage and safety features in the gas tank that would have saved both men's lives.

Linda Jagiela got her first call from Nydia Neubauer four years ago. Jagiela owned a car service in Marlton, and Neubauer wanted a driver. She didn't have a specific destination. She just wanted to be picked up in New Hope in a black Town Car and chauffeured wherever she pleased. To Lambertville, N.J., to get treatment for her dog. To a garage 100 miles away in Milford, Pa., where Neubauer said she had stored her furs. To the Jersey Shore. Neubauer, who typically traveled with two dogs and a woman she called a maid, painted herself as a rich heiress, Jagiela said.
