A sewage spill in March that has been a concern to some Haddonfield residents has been adequately cleared away and the area has been remediated, according to a spokesman for Camden County. But even if the mess is gone, the furor rages on, with a contested Board of Commissioners race less than a week away. A county Health Department inspector issued no violations to the borough during site visits this week and last, but instructed that the solid matter on the site, in a wooded area not far from the Wedgewood Swim Club, be raked up and the area spread with lime to control bacteria growth, county spokesman Ron Tomasello said.

At some point early in the second half, Mike Reardon lifted his balky right shoulder and tapped his coach on the back. "He told me he wanted more minutes," West Deptford boys' lacrosse coach Mike Yarusso. After breaking his right collarbone in his team's final preseason game, Reardon hadn't even gone full-contact in practice before Saturday's game at Haddonfield. This was his first game back, and his playing time was supposed to be spotty. "The doctors told me it wasn't smart to even play at all this season," Reardon said.

Haddon Heights' bats delivered an early lead, but it took a marquee pitching effort and several key defensive plays for the Garnets to hold on for a 5-0 win over visiting GCIT in nonleague softball Thursday. Junior Mariah Hans provided the spark at the plate, finishing 3 for 3 with a run scored and an RBI. But she set the tone with her defense at shortstop, flying around the infield to snuff out GCIT rallies. Down by 4-0 in the fifth inning, GCIT loaded the bases with Taylor Favinger up at bat. The Cheetahs slugger uncorked a bomb to right-center field, but rightfielder Kristen Resh tracked back to the fence, leaped, and pulled the ball back, preventing a grand slam and killing the visitors' last scoring opportunity.

Jim Price, 55, of Moorestown, who ran the Boston Marathon on Monday in 2 hours, 54 minutes, loves the big-city races precisely because of the energy he feels from the crowds. He wonders if Monday's terrorist attack at the finish, killing three and injuring more than 170, will discourage spectators from coming to races such as next month's Broad Street Run. "If this has an impact on those fans, it's really going to hurt those events," he said. "I've viewed . . . 26 miles as hard enough, and I don't have a desire to run that far along empty streets.
