News Item: Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie said last week the demotion of former general manager Howie Roseman was not a reflection on Roseman's abilities as a player personnel evaluator. "I just think Chip [Kelly] wanted his own football player personnel guy next to him at all times," Lurie said. "It was much more Chip's requirement to have sort of a football guy that he was comfortable with in terms of helping him day to day, minute by minute. " Football Guy awoke exactly on time and leaped from bed, landing on the artificial turf rug in a perfect three-point stance.

For almost six years, Katelyn Darrow has devoted herself to Angels of God Clothing Closet, the nonprofit she founded that provides clothing, toiletries, and baby supplies to those in need. She started Angels of God when she was 12, she explains, "because I wanted to pay it forward. " This year, the Pitman resident has another ambitious charitable goal: to assemble at least 500 Easter baskets for children and teenagers in need.

"DON'T play with your food. " Sure, we all heard that as kids. But today, the kitchen is everybody's playpen. And food is fun personified - worthy of TV channels and specialty gadget shops celebrating food-as-entertainment. Gizmo Guy traces the trend back to last-century novelty peddlers like the Johnson Smith Co., the back-of-the-comic-book advertiser that introduced gag-gift dribble glasses, plastic ice cubes with a bug floating inside and kitchen aprons imprinted with "Beware of Chef" warnings.

My farm-to-table fantasy? I harvest eggs, milk and honey with my own hands and eat the fruits of my labor, aglow in the setting sun. Yet I'm a city slicker with a short attention span. So where's the happy medium for a potential urban farmer like me? Renting. Yes, just in time for spring, you can rent chickens for eggs (with an option to adopt if you come to love them) or goats for grazing your lawn (they don't bite). You can even rent your own honeybee colony to buzz about on your rooftop or in your backyard.

Taking advantage of a hectic situation, Carmine Fiore put in a layup as time expired Monday to give Egg Harbor Township a 42-40 road victory over Vineland in a Cape-Atlantic American boys' basketball thriller.

LONGPORT, N.J. - Buoys bobbed in the bay near the tip of this town on a recent frigid day. Many of the waterfront homes were empty - their inhabitants absent and elsewhere. Gone, like Andrew Biddle. It has been five months since Biddle, an internationally honored powerboat racer, was declared missing after a pontoon boat he was said to have been aboard struck a buoy and crashed into a jetty. What at first seemed to be a tragic boat accident turned into the launch of Biddle's plunge into mystery.

A Jersey Shore hotel accused of post-Sandy price gouging has agreed to pay $65,000 to settle a lawsuit brought by the state Division of Consumer Affairs.

Christie declared a state of emergency Oct. 27, 2012, and the storm made landfall Oct. 29. From Oct. 27 through Nov. 5, the state said, Amy Hotels had 545 instances of price gouging, raising room rates as high as 150 percent in one case, where the nightly rate jumped to $199.99 from $79.99 before the storm.

Eggland's Best L.L.C. has flown the coop. After seven years perched just off the Trooper Road exit of Route 422 in Montgomery County, the producer of higher-nutrition eggs, each stamped with a red EB , relocated its headquarters last month to Malvern. The move was to make way for a mixed-use development planned for the Trooper Road site and is not a sign of distress at EB, said Charles T. Lanktree, president and CEO. While the egg industry in general has had sales as flat as a crepe, EB's unit sales have been up double digits each of the last 17 years, an average of 14 percent each year, Lanktree said.
