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.

* 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.

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"?

Since he was a youngster, Robert Steinberg not only had collected baseball cards, but, his wife Susan noted, unlike some others, "he never allowed his mother to throw them out. " At one point, she said, Mr. Steinberg "probably had 20 Mickey Mantle rookie cards. " But he had set his sights higher. His goal, she said, "was to collect every set, from 1948 through 1970," for every major-league baseball team. "And," she said, "he succeeded. " On Saturday, July 18, Mr. Steinberg, 67, of Marlton, a co-owner of his family-owned Camden Truck Parts of West Collingwood Heights, died of heart failure at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.

David I. Lesser was a good enough friend to Robert Petril that Mr. Lesser and his wife, Gale, shared both of Petril's honeymoons. The Lessers "took us away to a timeshare in Newport, Rhode Island, which they owned," Petril said, soon after Petril married his first wife, Sherry, in the early 1990s. Vacationing from their two apartments, "it was a wonderful time for the four of us. " After his first wife died, Petril said, "I became engaged while out to dinner with David and Gale.

Timothy Loper Sr. approached the Superior Court judge in Camden on Thursday wearing a pin with a picture of his son, once a Marine, in uniform. A member of the court staff asked Loper if he wanted to sit before he spoke about life since Timothy Jr., 27, was fatally shot outside a Camden bar in December 2013. The father chose to stand. "I haven't slept a full night in a year and seven months. I just can't understand," he said, before trailing off as he tried to hold back tears. Not long after the brief speech, Judge Gwendolyn Blue sentenced Darrell Crone - who claimed innocence until the end - to 70 years in prison.

Tuesday marked "a milestone in [Cherry Hill] Township's Mount Laurel compliance," according to an expert housing consultant, the lone witness to testify before a judge approved settlements ending a 40-year-old affordable housing dispute in the Camden County community. "It's a complicated case," said Philip Caton, who has served as an affordable housing consultant to more than 45 municipalities, including Cherry Hill. "I didn't think I'd be here for a settlement. " One settlement, approved Tuesday by Superior Court Judge Nan Famular, could bring up to 124 affordable rental units to the township under proposed redevelopment plans for three sites on the west side of Cherry Hill.

Highsmith's visits to Cherry Hill in April and June yielded about 30 pictures of South Jersey's signature suburb. "I roamed around to see what I could see, and I was impressed," she says.

A decades-old affordable housing dispute could be coming to an end in Cherry Hill, an area with one of the nation's least affordable housing markets for the middle class. At fairness hearings scheduled for July 21, a state Superior Court judge in Camden County is set to scrutinize two settlement agreements - one between Cherry Hill and housing advocates Fair Share Housing Center and the NAACP, and the second between the township and the developer Cherry Hill Land Associates. Both tentative agreements await the approval of the judge, who was granted oversight of municipalities' affordable housing obligations in a March state Supreme Court ruling.
