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.

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.

Stomel, an assistant prosecutor in Cherry Hill since 1981.

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"?

* 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.

The novelist Joe Samuel Starnes forsook Philadelphia's Fishtown so he could live closer to Westmont's Green Valley Tennis Club. "I live about a mile from here," Starnes, 48, says. "I'm very fortunate to have found this place. I've made the best group of friends here, on and off the court. " His third commercially published work of fiction is set in rural Georgia; it's not a roman a clef about Green Valley. But as I quickly learn during the private club's open house Saturday, Green Valley has stories to tell, too. "Frank, may he rest in peace, was an absolutely wonderful man," says Jerry Ehrlich, recalling Frank J. Verdi, the Haddonfield dental surgeon who founded Green Valley.

The new hockey coach is under an enormous amount of pressure. He is taking over a team that has a long tradition of winning and is used to selling out its state-of-the-art building. The new coach's fan base is also craving a long overdue championship. "A ton" of pressure, Brad Berry admitted Tuesday during a telephone interview from North Dakota. "The standards and expectations are very high, but I don't think I'd want it any other way. " You may not have heard of Berry before, but he is quite familiar with Dave Hakstol, the new hockey coach who grabbed the local headlines when he was hired by the Flyers on Monday.

After four seasons playing lacrosse on the bright green turf that Cherry Hill East calls home, Jesse Viggiano figured he had seen just about everything. But the final minutes of the final home game of his high school career were nothing if not unique. "I was fighting for my life, honestly," the senior goalie said. "I was standing in the cage - I almost threw up - my emotions were all over the place. "But I just decided I wasn't going to let this one get away from us. " Viggiano reeled in his emotions and made two game-saving stops in double overtime before freshman Eric Sherman's winner in triple overtime sealed a thrilling 9-8 win for the Cherry Hill East over Rancocas Valley on Friday in the opening round of the South Jersey Group 4 tournament.

When her son's name was called at last, Pat Hundley lost the composure she'd been struggling to keep since the start of graduation weekend at Howard University. And as Thomas Edward Hundley Jr. strode across the stage in his splendid blue cap and gown, his mother's tears turned into a prayer of thanks. "I knew he was going to finish," said Pat, 63, of Cherry Hill. "I wasn't going to rest until he did. " Neither were family, friends, neighbors, coworkers, church members, charitable foundations, and anonymous benefactors.

Jeff Dixon is a little taller and a little stronger this season. He throws a little harder. But those aren't the real reasons that Dixon is one of South Jersey's most-improved pitchers. "It's a different feeling being a senior," Dixon said after earning the victory in perhaps the Lions' most impressive game of the season, a 14-4 triumph over second-ranked Eastern Monday afternoon. Dixon has been a solid varsity pitcher for three seasons. He was 4-3 with a 3.50 ERA as a junior.
