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.

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"?

Helen Rieder, 88, a Holocaust survivor who later educated young people about the atrocity, died Aug. 8 in Lions Gate retirement community in Voorhees of coronary artery disease.

In 1944, when she was 16, she and seven of her eight siblings were shuttled from a ghetto in Tachova, a town in what is now the Czech Republic, to Auschwitz.

He was surprised seven years ago when he realized how little public recognition was given to high school graduates who chose military service over college. Kenneth E. Hartman, then a Cherry Hill school board member, decided to take action. The former Army first lieutenant set up a committee and began mobilizing businesses, colleges, educators, and veterans groups to plan and fund Camden County's first High School Enlistee Recognitions Ceremony in 2009.

During their first tour of the Philadelphia Museum of Art last summer, the military veterans entered a modern-art gallery displaying a series of paintings that troubled them. Something about the scribbly nature of Cy Twombly's Fifty Days at Iliam, based on Alexander Pope's translation of Homer's Iliad , stirred visceral emotions, dark memories of their service. One veteran teared up. In another gallery, similar feelings were elicited by The Gross Clinic , the painting by Thomas Eakins showing a doctor performing surgery on a leg in 1875.

His goal, she said, "was to collect every set, from 1948 through 1970," for every major-league baseball team. "And," she said, "he succeeded.

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.

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.
