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.

Cherry Hill's chief prosecutor has resigned his post with the township, the mayor's office announced yesterday. Matthew E. 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. The resignation became effective immediately.

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"?

Cherry Hill police yesterday said they had no suspects in a rash of incidents in which racist graffiti was spray-painted in about dozen locations around the township in the last week. The most recent appeared yesterday, the letters "KKK" painted on a privacy fence. On Feb. 28, "Save the U.S. Kill Jews" was discovered spray- painted on the road surface in the first block of Downing Street. All the incidents have occurred in the eastern half of the township. Police have few leads, Detective Sgt. Richard Tomlinson said yesterday.

More than a dozen residents of Cherry Hill's Kingston section rose before the Township Council meeting Monday evening, demanding to know if the town was secretly planning a new municipal building for Kings Highway, before Mayor Chuck Cahn assured them that the project was "not even at Stage One. " "We haven't even kicked the tires," he told the 50 residents who turned out for the meeting. When pressed by opponents of the rumored project, Cahn told them that "if the residents of Kingston don't want a municipal building in Kingston, we won't build it there.

Fabiola Paonessa was at an airport in Puerto Rico this April, about to leave for New York on a spring-break trip with her family, when she learned that she, along with the other students involved in her school's production of Homeroom, the Musical , would be coming to the Philadelphia area this month. The message came first to parents of the Colegio Ponceño cast and crew. When Paonessa saw the email on her mother's phone, she said, she started "jumping up and down, screaming my lungs out. " She spread word to her fellow cast members, and soon the rallying cry went up: "Philly!

In 1974, Cherry Hill Mayor John T. Holden Sr. was looking for a local project to celebrate the nation's 200th birthday in 1976. A broken-down 16-room farmhouse, built in 1816 and threatened by a developer's offer, filled the bill. So, with $335,000 of governmental preservation funds, Cherry Hill became the owner and operator of the 32-acre Barclay Farmstead. "He was instrumental in protecting the Barclay Farmstead," said Bernie Platt, president of Platt Memorial Chapels and mayor from 1979 to 1981 and from 2002 to 2009.

He wants to build a wall along the border with Mexico. He inveighs against trade deficits that are "killing us. " His campaign slogan? "Make South Jersey Great Again. " At a time when some Republican candidates across the country are running from their party's controversial standard-bearer, Bob Patterson is betting that Donald Trump's brand of populist politics will appeal to voters in New Jersey's reliably Democratic First Congressional District, currently represented by Donald Norcross.

The family of three Cherry Hill brothers protested Wednesday outside the federal courthouse in Camden after the men lost another attempt to overturn their convictions for participating in a plan to kill soldiers at Fort Dix. The protest came a day after the family learned that U.S. District Judge Robert Kugler denied the brothers' application for post-conviction relief. The Dukas wanted their convictions overturned, alleging their attorneys improperly prevented them from testifying during their 2008 trial.

There is a beauty to the meritocracy of a blind beer tasting. There's no slick marketing to influence decisions. No brand loyalty tugging at judges' sympathies. No extra points for history or the geography of state lines, as this year's winners would prove. At The Inquirer's seventh annual Brew-vitational competition for local beers, our biggest yet with 64 entries from 35 breweries divided into two categories ("new" and "sour"), every beer had an equal opportunity to impress the panel on its own virtues.

The out-of-the-blue knock on the door came on a Sunday afternoon in March, Carmen Argentina recalls. His wife, Sonia, was preparing pasta at their gracious Cherry Hill home. At the door was a pleasant real estate professional who said she was representing a buyer whose identity she could not disclose, but who was willing to pay cash. "She asked me, 'What would you want?' " Argentina, 80, says. "I told her, 'I'm not moving.' " However, the township may be interested in nearby land now occupied by two office buildings and at least two homes in the portion of the Kingston Estates neighborhood bounded by North Kings Highway, Daytona Avenue, Drake Terrace, and Queens Road.

Sound and fury worthy of a network TV shoot was unleashed Thursday night along the Delaware River in Port Richmond for NBC's reality competition American Warrior Ninja . The show was taped in Philadelphia for the first time since it premiered in 2009. Thursday's event featured 130 contestants and was the first of a two-night shoot that will yield oodles of footage for the eight season premiere on June 1. American Ninja Warrior may not be as sadistic as its precursor - the Japanese show Sasuke, Ninja - but it's a rigorous contest.
