Hello there After a busy week of teaching language arts to seventh graders, Liz was ready for happy hour with coworkers from Carusi Middle School in Cherry Hill. Her phone buzzed with a text that said it was from friend Jenna: "Wear something cute. I'm bringing a friend. " What the heck, Liz thought. Her eHarmony matches had been disappointing. Besides, that early evening in February 2011, Liz, who is now 28, needed some lighthearted fun. She had recently been hospitalized for a blood clot in her leg - a random, frightening incident.

At the antiques show sponsored annually by St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church in Cherry Hill, the antiques are almost secondary to the food. That, at least, is what the promoter says. The food, prepared by church volunteers, has been the big draw at the show during its seven-year existence. But collectors won't go hungry for the lack of antiques. At this year's show, at the Cherry Hill National Guard Armory tomorrow and Sunday, they'll find a wide assortment of merchandise: prints, china and glassware, country and Victorian furniture, jewelry and more, offered by more than 40 dealers.

* THE WALKING DEAD. 9 p.m. Sunday, AMC.   FOR SOMEONE who spent the first 13 years of her life in Cherry Hill, N.J., Lauren Cohan has quite the British accent. Not that you'll get to hear it in AMC's "The Walking Dead," which Cohan joins in Sunday's episode, playing Maggie, a Georgia farmer's daughter who encounters the show's band of survivors after their exodus from zombie-ridden Atlanta. "She comes from a very Christian background. She hasn't been all that exposed to the zombies," Cohan explained in a phone interview last week, trying to keep things spoiler-free.

Subaru of America Inc., which has its national headquarters in Cherry Hill, is considering leaving the township, though the mayor says he's working to prevent that. The auto company, based at its Route 70 location since 1986, has indicated to the township that it may move to consolidate operations at a larger facility. While company officials said they have made no decisions, Cherry Hill is confronting the possibility of losing the business — and the $440,210 in property taxes it paid last year.

Segal offered Friday to give up his $15,000-a-year part-time job after meeting with Mayor Susan Bass Levin and the township solicitor, Francine Axelrad, a mayoral aide said.

It is truly absurd for Evie Doherty ("Goodbye, Cherry Hill," Sept. 17) to claim the high road leads to a development in the Pine Barrens, one of our country's most precious natural resources. An "adult community," such as the one in the Pinelands that Doherty says she has moved to, is still sprawl. I am much more concerned about the environmental impact of development in the Pinelands than I am about the traffic on Route 70 in already developed Cherry Hill. So what if Cherry Hill has become a "city"?

PISCATAWAY, N.J. - Nazier Smith tripped and fell to the floor and the referee blew his whistle and raised his hand. With 1 minute, 41 seconds remaining in the Group 4 state final on Sunday, the best era in Cherry Hill East basketball came to an end. Jake Silpe, the Cougars' star senior guard, walked slowly to the bench, sat down and buried his face in a towel. He couldn't bear to watch the final moments of Paterson Eastside's 50-34 victory over Cherry Hill East in the final game of his illustrious career.

Cherry Hill East guard Jake Silpe has helped fuel the most successful basketball era in school history, which is saying something. East has always had a rich tradition, competing annually against South Jersey's best teams in the Olympic Conference. But the arrival of Silpe has taken the program to a new level. In Silpe's freshman season, East lost in the South Jersey Group 4 final. "When we got to the sectional final and lost my freshman year, my first thought was, 'We can get further,' " the senior said after Wednesday's 65-42 state semifinal win over Hillsborough.

EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP, N.J. - The mind-set was totally different for the Cherry Hill East boys' basketball team the second time around. So was the outcome. A year ago, the Cougars won the first South Jersey Group 4 title in program history, and the players admitted that there was a feeling that their business was over after that game. So when the Cougars played in the Group 4 state semifinal and lost 55-36 to Trenton, the players still felt a great sense of achievement, and rightly so. High school sports can be a great teacher, and what the East players learned was that the season doesn't end after the South Jersey championships.

When he was in his 30s, Edward M. Oberman, a certified public accountant, found he needed something to get him through tax preparation seasons. He chose getting in shape for triathlons. "So he gets up very early, trains, goes to work," said his wife, Lee Ann. "Then he got hooked on the health benefits. "It became a way of life. " A typical race might consist of swimming 400 to 500 yards, cycling 12 to 15 miles, and running three miles, according to the website www.active.com/triathlon .

Olin McClendon never expected to be in this position. When his Cherry Hill East teammate Jake Silpe fired a three-pointer to win the game, the ball hit nothing but backboard. McClendon, a 6-foot junior, was there to grab the rebound and lay it in, forcing overtime. After neither team scored in the first extra period, the Cougars took over. With Silpe providing another vintage performance, East defeated Cherokee, 48-39, in double overtime Monday in a wild South Jersey Group 4 final. It was the second consecutive sectional title for East, which also beat Cherokee in last year's championship game.

Jake Silpe is tired after every game. This was different. "This is the most exhausted I've ever been after a game," Silpe said on Saturday after leading Cherry Hill East to one of the signature victories in the history of the program. Silpe battled Atlantic City's relentless full-court pressure for all 32 minutes, leading visiting Cherry Hill East to a 66-56 victory in the South Jersey Group 4 semifinals.

With 10 wins in its first 11 games, Cherry Hill West looked like one of the best teams in South Jersey through the first month of the season. With seven losses in their next eight games, the Lions looked decidedly different over the next few weeks. Now, Cherry Hill West (14-8) has won three in a row, moved to the brink of capturing its second straight Olympic Conference Patriot Division title and emerged as a dark horse in the South Jersey Group 4 tournament. "It was hard, because we had multiple losses in a row," Cherry Hill West coach Hamisi Tarrant said.
