New Jersey's first summertime whale exploration produced plenty of sightings yesterday - for anyone who browsed through Joyce Garrison's scrapbook. It was a different story off the port and starboard bows of the Casino Challenger charter yesterday. The sightings included: two bags of trash, a wooden crate, a bevy of Styrofoam cups, one plastic bottle of Aunt Jemima Lite Syrup . . . and no whales. Garrison, from Dennisville near Cape May, gladly shared her album of color photos from a whale watch off Cape Cod, Mass.

Authorities are hunting for the person they say apparently killed a pit bull puppy by sealing her inside an airless, plastic-wrapped, duct-taped metal crate and leaving it on an Upper Dublin roadside on Wednesday. "We're assuming she was suffocated inside the cage," said Det. Michael Gommer, explaining that police found feces in the cage – suggesting she was alive when her owner wrapped the crate in plastic. A necropsy done by the Montgomery County SPCA confirmed the cause of death as suffocation and found no signs of trauma, Gommer added.

While playing basketball on a makeshift court at Marshall and Poplar, not far from his North Philly home, Hassan Young never has hit net on a jump shot. Neither has he clanged one off metal. Plastic? Now you're talking. The basket is a milk crate. "I've been playing there since I was 10 years old," Young said. "We used to have a backboard up there, but that got smashed up, so now it's just a crate nailed to the telephone pole. "The crate has been broken lots of times.

As a federal agent put it, something unexpected "crawled out of a crate of bananas" on the South Jersey docks the other day. It was a stowaway. And inside his crate, buried deep among bunches of bananas, authorities found two caches of cocaine - a primary lode of 2.8 kilos, and a few grams from a personal stash that authorities said the man used to keep himself amused during the eight-day voyage from Colombia. Immigration officials said Renzon Victor Barahona-Garcia of Turbo, Colombia, expected to be paid $15,000 for smuggling the drugs into the Philadelphia region.

"Build a better mousetrap, and the world will beat a path to your door," the saying goes. But build a better box - a durable, versatile, lightweight box - and the world will sneak around to your back door and swipe it when you're not looking. The U.S. dairy industry discovered this cheerless truth 19 years ago, when it developed what seemed to be a quite ordinary box: the plastic milk crate. Made of molded, high-density polyethylene and weighing about three pounds, it was intended for no other purpose than storing milk in refrigerated dairy cases and later delivering it. What the dairy industry created instead (and continues to create by the millions, against its will)

The little girl with the ponytail wanted a photo with Mike Green, so Butler University's point guard stood right up and put his arm around her, offering his biggest smile. The girl was wearing a Butler basketball jersey with his No. 10 on it. "They embrace me here, big time - it's what you dream of," Green said a little later, sitting in the bleachers at Hinkle Fieldhouse after a game. "I wouldn't go back and change, not one thing. " Hinkle Fieldhouse is the Palestra of the Midwest, where they filmed the climactic scenes of Hoosiers.

Matt sits on a crate outside Jefferson Station, panhandling for the $10 bag of heroin that will get him through the next few hours. Some nights, the 28-year-old Army veteran from Horsham sleeps in the doorways of Midtown Village boutiques, other nights in the underpass outside the Convention Center. He tries not to think of the life he had, not so long ago, in his suburban hometown: an apartment, a $25,000 truck, a landscaping business with his father, a king-size bed. Tries not to dwell on the question he cannot answer: "What are you doing with yourself?"

This year, he presents three Strømgren shows - the shrunken A Doll's House cast with life-size local actors that opened the festival, the manic There , and the a-romantic The Border . The latter two are staged at different times on the same days through Saturday at the FringeArts Theater.

In those cash-strapped days when you first moved into your own place and used plastic milk crates as furniture, you might not have considered yourself part of the sustainability movement. But you were, by repurposing that crate. A few years ago, Morgan Berman decided she, too, wanted to live a greener existence. "I kept thinking, 'I want to make these life choices,' but I didn't know how," the 29-year-old Philadelphia resident recalled. So she developed an app, MilkCrate, to help her and other like-minded consumers connect with local sustainable businesses and other resources.

Gov. Christie vetoed a measure Friday to ban crates used to confine pregnant pigs, slamming it as a "solution in search of a problem" and a "political movement masquerading as substantive policy. " "We do not have an issue with gestation crates in New Jersey," Christie wrote in his veto message. He urged the Legislature to work on "significant issues" and "stop following misguided partisans and special interest groups who want to use the lawmaking process as a political cudgel on issues outside our borders.

Few if any New Jersey pigs may be affected by Gov. Christie's decision, due Monday, on a bill to prohibit a farming practice of confining pregnant sows in cages so narrow they can't turn around. But the bill to ban gestation crates has drawn national attention - not just to the welfare of pigs, but to Christie's presidential prospects. "There is simply no reason for Gov. Christie not to sign it. The only reason is Iowa," said Matt Dominguez, public policy manager for farm animal protection at the Humane Society of the United States.

TRENTON - Unfazed by Gov. Christie's veto pen, the Legislature again has passed a bill banning the use of crates for pregnant pigs. The bill's supporters have a new ally: the actor Danny DeVito. "Chris, please sign the ban on gestation crates - cages used to confine breeding pigs!" DeVito, of Taxi and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia fame, said in a statement distributed by the Humane Society, which supports the bill. "Man, that sounds like something we should do right away.

The New Jersey Senate plans to try Monday to override Gov. Christie's veto of a bill backed by animal-rights activists to ban the use of pig gestation crates by farmers. "I would be shocked if we're not successful," said Sen. Ray Lesniak (D., Union), the bill's sponsor, adding that "I hope and expect" enough senators will vote for the override. While an agenda for Monday's voting session has not been released, a spokesman for Senate President Stephen Sweeney (D., Gloucester) confirmed that Sweeney had approved posting the bill for an override vote.

THERE'S NOTHING harder for a young puppy to learn than being alone. Dogs are social animals, just as we are. And when you bring a puppy home, you're not only asking him to do something for which he isn't really wired, but also to do it for the first time, under the stressful circumstances of being in the new home. And yet, the ability to relax alone is a critical skill for a modern dog. Being able to relax while isolated in a comfortable carrier is essential to riding safely in a car, resting after medical care at the veterinary hospital, and even being cared for away from home by strangers during times of disaster.
