The safe and sensible move for Jimmy D'Angelo would have been to stay in Philadelphia. He ran a busy golf school on Sansom Street. He was a familiar figure in the Philadelphia Section PGA. He and his wife lived in a 200-year-old farmhouse in Feasterville. But D'Angelo left everything behind, including the security of being involved with golf in an area with a rich history and dozens of fine courses. He took a job in this noisy resort town where the beach was king and the number of golf courses was about to be doubled - from one to two - with the construction of the Dunes Golf and Beach Club.

The grass has faded to brown on Camden Catholic's soccer field, but there are a few things that haven't changed for the Irish. First, there's green everywhere you go. The refreshment stand is green, the uniforms are green, the writing on the wall of the school building is green. Even the garbage dumpster in the parking lot is green. Then there's Mike D'Angelo, the coach of the girls' team, who's spending his fifth year roaming the sidelines. D'Angelo is as enthusiastic as ever about promoting high school soccer, college soccer, and soccer in general.

Chris D'Angelo has been a stabilizing force on one of the least-experienced teams in South Jersey. The 5-foot-9 point guard is the only senior starter on a Bishop Eustace team that also starts three sophomores and a junior. D'Angelo is not a big scorer, but he offers plenty of other skills to the 8-3 Crusaders. In addition to his leadership and outstanding defense, D'Angelo has become one of the area's top ball handlers. "Chris is like a grandfather out there with all of our young kids," Bishop Eustace coach Bill Lange said.

Salvatore D'Angelo - Sal to his friends - used to take to the stage, but now the stage comes to him. Celebs from Michelle Pfeiffer to Michael Bolton to Hall and Oates come to eat his food and hear him play guitar and sing as he strolls through his restaurant. "Lionel Richie came in and said, 'Sal, you gonna sing for me?' Sometimes James Ingram's wife calls from California and asks me to sing 'Volare' over the phone," D'Angelo said in his heavy Italian accent. A former professional actor and musician, D'Angelo got his start in restaurants when he was 12, working in the kitchen at the old Jimmy's Milan, a few blocks away, where his brother, Tony, was a chef.

During my first flip-through of celeb-chef Barton Seaver's new grilling cookbook, Where There's Smoke , I was surprised by a dish I had never seen before: grilled tuna spines. Clearly, the old-fashioned American cookout menu is changing, and a fresh crop of grill-focused cookbooks is introducing a food-savvy generation to the pleasures of contemporary outdoor cooking. Where There's Smoke is joined by Bobby Flay's Barbecue Addiction ; a paperback edition of Mario Batali's Italian Grill ; and All Fired Up: Smokin' Hot BBQ Secrets From the South's Best Pitmasters , by the editors of Southern Living magazine.

The Bristol Borough school board Thursday voted, 5-3, to appoint Steven Cullen as junior varsity basketball coach, effectively removing former JV coach John D'Angelo. Neither the board nor D'Angelo offered any explanation for the coaching change, although later D'Angelo said, "It's politics. " School board member Ernest Pinelli, who voted against Cullen's appointment, made a motion that D'Angelo be appointed assistant varsity coach. But the motion was killed when board Chairman Louis Persichetti said, "The proper procedure is to advertise the position and take applications.

Back when Vince D'Angelo went to Haverford High School and was a member of the Fords football team, he didn't think very highly of cross-country runners. In fact, he thought they were a "bunch of wimps. " D'Angelo - a 1970 graduate - played for the Fords during their glory years. Led by all-American quarterback Steve Joachim and tight end Randy Grossman (both went on to star at Temple, and Grossman played for two Pittsburgh Steelers Super Bowl championship teams), the Fords lost only one game his junior and senior year.

Former U.S. Mint worker David D'Angelo, who pleaded guilty yesterday to theft charges, smuggled a lot of valuable "error coins" out of the fortress-like Center City plant where the nation's coins are made. Slow and steady appears to have been his way of beating the Mint's tight security, which includes metal detectors. Apparently, D'Angelo was sneaking out only one or two pieces at a time, flawed pennies, nickels, dimes or quarters, the kind some coin collectors pay dearly for. Although prosecutors wouldn't say how much coinage the former maintenance mechanic smuggled out, they said he earned about $80,000 over a 16-month period by selling "numerous" stolen coins to collectors.

The Pennsbury Township Planning Commission has begun preliminary discussion on a request to subdivide a four-acre parcel of land along Route 926. Adriano D'Angelo informed the commission Monday that he planned to submit a request to subdivide his property on Route 926 between Brinton's Bridge and Parkersville Roads. D'Angelo also wants to have his driveway moved to a different area of his property, eventually creating a common driveway for the two lots created by the subdivision.

It began, said David J. D'Angelo, as an insider's boast: showing wide-eyed friends double-headed and other error coins struck at the U.S. Mint in Philadelphia. It ended with six months in prison, six months of house arrest, an $80,000 fine, and public humiliation. That was the price a federal judge imposed Tuesday on D'Angelo, a 20-year mechanic at the mint, who admitted smuggling rare error coins out of the mint and selling them to collectors and over the Internet for about $74,000.
