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"?

As promised, the Obama administration on Friday sent letters to school districts across the country outlining the civil rights of transgender students, including access to bathrooms and locker rooms. Title IX prohibits sex discrimination in educational programs and activities that receive federal funds, the letter said, saying schools should allow transgender students to use bathrooms consistent with their chosen gender identity. The sweeping guidance does not have the force of law, but it warns that schools that do not comply could face lawsuits or lose federal aid. It ups the ante in the debate over bathroom laws, which are the subject of a charged lawsuit between North Carolina and the U.S. Department of Justice.

When Joan Browning, 74, started her shift at 6 a.m. Wednesday, the last thing she expected to see was the mayor of Cherry Hill with a proclamation for her. "I was just shocked," Browning said later that morning from behind a well-kept counter at Ponzio's, the restaurant where she has worked since February 1966. About five months ago, the landmark diner's owners, John Giambanis and brothers Nick and John Fifis, decided to put up banners and bus stop posters in the township to celebrate Browning's 50th anniversary as a waitress at Ponzio's - almost as long as the diner has been where Routes 70 and 41 meet.
