Breathing new life into an aging downtown and reducing street crime and drug sales was the common thread linking mayoral and council candidates during last night's election debate. "I think we can clean up the community," said Mayor Alvin G. Shpeen, 68, a Democrat who has served as mayor since David Dougherty vacated the post in February. "Clean up your yard. Clean up your curbside, and we'll help you do that with grants," Shpeen said. The town has received two grants for a total of $450,000 this year, Shpeen said, which will be used to restore dilapidated storefronts, as well as install lighting and new sidewalks.

In the days leading to each week's football game, challenges are issued to Ronnie James. He'll hear them in the hallways and locker room, from friends and classmates. They are not entirely serious, but that doesn't mean James isn't thinking about them. "This week, people were saying they wanted three touchdowns from me," the 6-foot running back and safety for Glassboro said. "I always try to raise them one. I told them I'd score four. That was my goal. " Mission accomplished.

The ground game ran on all cylinders in the second half. And the defense played with a purpose, not allowing a first down in the second half. Yet the highlight of Glassboro's season-opening 18-0 victory over Salem yesterday was the presentation of the game ball. Coach Bob Cleary gathered the team and gave the ball to Patricia Morris, whose son Nick died last month, an innocent bystander in the Deptford Mall shooting. Nick's sister Nicole, who is serving as a water girl for the Bulldogs this season, also was there for the presentation.

It's one thing to make five three-pointers. It's something else to make five three-pointers with a hand your face. And it's something else entirely to make the last of those five three-pointers with 1 minute, 26 seconds on the clock and your team trailing by 55-52 and the near-capacity crowd in full roar in a visiting gymnasium. "That's a tough shot in a tough part of the game," Woodstown coach Jeff Podolski said of senior guard Dee Hall's final three-point jumper of a Tri-County Conference Diamond Division showdown Thursday night in Glassboro.
