"My brother came in and let me know he had observed this craft hovering 10 feet off the ground," right there in their backyard. When Harzan went out there, he said, "I saw a landing craft 30 feet from me. " It had "no visible means of propulsion, except for a humming noise it was making.

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.

But if you find yourself in the shoes of David Bodkin-Parris, 14, who was hit by a bolt of bad luck Monday in Glenolden, it can change your life forever. Michael Utley knows this all too well. In May 2000, Utley, 63, was golfing in Cape Cod, Mass., when it happened. Rain and hail began to fall as the siren blared, alerting golfers to get off the course. Severe weather was coming. As Utley headed inside, a bolt hit him. "My buddies saw me fall to the ground," Utley said.

Dania Sargenc often joked that the neon sign above Benash Liquor Store, with its bold yellow lettering, rusty red background, and arrow pointing toward the door, would one day be hers. The sign went up in 1948, when her uncle opened the store along Route 38 in Cherry Hill. Soon her father worked there, and even through ownership changes during the next 66 years, the sign remained. Then, last week, it came crashing down. What was one man's misfortune - accidentally toppling the sign with a red pickup truck - was Sargenc's chance to reclaim a part of her family's history.
