In Somers Point, a summer breeze whistles off the bay across an open-air counter laden with cold littlenecks on the half-shell and bowls of creamy chowder brimming over, much as it has for 29 years at "Smitty's" Clam Bar. In Cape May Point, not far from the watchful gaze of the old WWII Lookout Tower, good things are perking again at the recently revived 1930s-era general store — now called The Red Store — thanks to Deanna Ebner and her...

SOME PARTIES are more memorable than others. Such was the case Saturday night at a celebration for Tess Fanning, who recently graduated from Archbishop Wood. Among those attending were Bob and Monica Rotzal, whose 21-year-old son Alex is scheduled to undergo chemo on Monday to treat non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Alex, a former manager of La Salle High's crew team, now attends Temple. As is often the case, he was told that with chemo comes hair loss. That gave someone a hair-brained idea, and before you could say James Carville or Telly Savalas, 18 guys — young and old, some jocks, some not — were lined up to have their heads shaved as a show of support.

At Colonial Quy Bau, the French-Vietnamese BYOB that opened earlier this year in the Willow Grove strip-mall space that was Horizons Cafe long ago, chef/owner Corey Nguyen sources most of his vegetables, including the mushrooms and bok choy, from local growers. Unlike many Asian restaurants, Nguyen also gets chicken from an Amish farmer. When paired with farmed Vietnamese shrimp, as in the prosaically named entree sauteed Amish chicken and Vietnamese tiger shrimp, it's an uncommon take on farm-to-table.

With Congress launching debate on a new farm bill, there's no better time for Pennsylvania's congressional delegation to bring some sizzle to a major reform affecting one of the state's biggest farming sectors. As the nation's third-largest egg producer, Pennsylvania has a major stake in a proposal introduced last week in the Senate — and already gathering sponsors in the House — that would improve living conditions for egg-laying chickens. Following the lead of several states, the federal push to gradually shift all U.S. farms to larger cages for more than 250 million hens crammed into spaces so tight they can't spread a wing has been getting bipartisan backing.

Company description: Savor the combination of creamy ranch sauce, sliced chicken strips, crispy bacon, fresh sliced onions and tangy buffalo sauce. Chain: Papa John's. Calories: Oy.

A Camden man who authorities say fatally shot a bystander at a fast-food eatery last month was arraigned Wednesday on a charge of aggravated manslaughter. David Porrata, 33, was found by the U.S. Marshals Service on Tuesday night hiding in a Camden apartment, where a relative had been bringing him food. He had ignored calls from family members to turn himself in, Assistant Prosecutor Christine Shah told Superior Court Judge Irvin J. Snyder. Porrata allegedly shot Franklin Parker, 36, also of Camden, at a Crown Fried Chicken on the 200 block of South Broadway around 5 a.m. on April 27. The shooting began as an altercation between Porrata, a friend and a group of other men. Parker and a woman, who had been sitting together in a booth, tried to escape the restaurant when violence broke out, but Parker was hit by a stray bullet.
