David Delaney doesn't want to see Holly Parkway, which winds quietly through his community, become a small-scale highway with heavy traffic and fast drivers. Delaney, president of the Forest Hills Civic Association, which he said represents approximately 725 homes, is afraid that the nearby construction of The Arbours, a 582-unit housing development, will cause that and other problems. Other Forest Hills residents agree, he said, and he expects about 150 of them to make their concerns known at a preliminary hearing on the proposed development before the Monroe Township Planning Board tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. in town hall on Main Street.

Price Street has become a homeowner's nightmare. Cracked foundations, walls and windows, damage to cars, lawns and trees, and generally decreased property values have worried about 75 West Chester residents who want to limit vehicular traffic in the downtown area. The residents presented results of their own survey concerning the traffic problem to the borough's Public Safety Commission on Tuesday night. As a result, Public Safety Committee chairman Wayne Burton said he would request that the Borough Council endorse a general plan to divert traffic and examine the specific recommendations made by the residents.

The West Chester Area YMCA, a downtown borough presence for more than a century, said yesterday that it plans to move from its Chestnut Street address to a site in East Goshen by 2007. Citing heavy traffic and a lack of parking, YMCA officials said the Y's board of directors voted unanimously yesterday to move the 9,000-member organization to a building it plans to construct on roughly 15 acres at the intersection of Paoli Pike and Airport Road. "Relocating provides us an opportunity to serve more people and the site is easily accessible," said Lee Bunting, the West Chester Y's executive director.

Two unidentified Camden men, suspected of shoplifting from a department store, led Woodbury police on a four-mile car chase that reached speeds of 110 m.p.h. on Interstate 295 around 2 p.m. yesterday, authorities said. Police pursued the men, ages 41 and 32, for five minutes before their 1992 Nissan Maxima ran into heavy traffic near Interstate 676 in Bellmawr, said Woodbury Police Sgt. George McKnight. He declined to disclose their names. "It was Shore traffic that got them," McKnight said.

Reacting to complaints about delivery trucks and heavy traffic, township supervisors say they want to strengthen an ordinance that limits home businesses in residential neighborhoods. Some township residents are abusing zoning ordinances that allow businesses to be run from home, said Supervisor Robert Kuhn. If an ordinance revision passes, Kuhn said, it almost ensures that heavy traffic to new home businesses will cease. Opponents say a revised ordinance - which would only apply to new home businesses - would be too restrictive.

A 28-year-old Camden woman who had fled from police in a stolen car was killed Friday night in a collision on the North South Freeway in Gloucester Township, authorities said. The woman, whose identity was withheld pending family notification, had been confronted by a security guard earlier about an alleged shoplifting incident at a Kmart store in the township. She nearly struck pedestrians as she sped away from a police officer who had just arrived. Gloucester Township police said the woman was killed when the blue Ford Taurus she was driving northbound in the southbound lanes, near Blackwood Clementon Road, collided with a car driven by a Northampton Township, Bucks County, couple.

He slashed to the basket for tough scores at crunch time. He corralled rebounds in heavy traffic. For most of the fourth quarter, Kennel Sanchez played like anything but a freshman. So, naturally, he wanted the ball after his missed free throw left Bishop Eustace's No. 1 ranking in South Jersey hanging in the balance. "I wanted to get back [to the foul line] real bad," the springy 6-foot-3 forward said, "so I could redeem myself. " Sanchez did just that when he calmly sank a pair of free throws with 13 seconds to play in helping Bishop Eustace hold off Middle Township, 52-48, in an Atlantic Cape Classic game yesterday at St. Augustine Prep.

In most instances, the preferred route between two points is a straight line. But drivers at rush hour don't always see it that way. Just ask borough officials, who say their narrow, winding residential streets are increasingly being used by commuters trying to avoid heavy traffic. The Borough Council at Monday night's meeting gave the Police Department the go-ahead to study traffic control at several intersections. In the case of Mather Spur, which morning-commute motorists are barreling down daily, borough officials already have made the street one-way southbound temporarily.

With South Florida developer Michael Carp withdrawing his shopping center plans, Tanglewood Drive residents and township officials are setting their sights on what they would like to see at Durham and New Falls Roads. Carp, president of Development Partners Group, had wanted to build a shopping center, anchored by a Giant supermarket and Thrift Drug store, in this Bucks County township. To further sweeten the deal, the West Palm Beach developer offered $5,000 to 35 residents on Tanglewood Drive and Keystone Court if they supported his plan and it gained approval.

TRENTON - For motorists unaccustomed to the ways of New Jersey, the experience can be confounding. Need to make a left turn? Go right. By diverting left-turning vehicles off travel lanes, the half-loops known as jughandles have been found to help through-traffic move along more quickly on congested roadways. But a New Jersey state senator is trying to put a halt to any new "Jersey lefts," arguing that they delay and torment motorists who must regularly use them and confuse those unfamiliar with such traffic configurations.

EUGENE, Ore. - Once upon a time, the University of Oregon's track prowess was strictly distance-based and largely male. The longer the distance - by the likes of Bill Dellinger, Steve Prefontaine, and Alberto Salazar - the better. No more. Thanks largely to a young lady from South Jersey. English Gardner, Oregon's sensational sophomore sprinter out of Eastern High School in Voorhees, is already the NCAA indoor 60-meter champion and outdoor 100-meter titlist. Now, just look at her putting her talents on display, running on a much bigger stage, at the U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials at her home Hayward Field.

Funerals were held Thursday for two of the four Mainland Regional High School football players killed in a one-vehicle accident last weekend on the Garden State Parkway. A Mass was said for Edgar Bozzi, 16, in the early afternoon at St. Augustine Church in Ocean City. Later, Dean Khoury, 15, was memorialized in a Mass at St. Gianna Beretta Molla Church in Northfield. "There was just a tremendous outpouring at both funerals," Mainland athletic director Mike Gately said. "It's just exhausting to go to one, but to go from one to the other was really, really tough.

Robert M. Kelley is an Inquirer editor If you walk much in Center City, this will sound familiar: You wait for the light to change, start crossing with the walk signal. Then - at the last second - you see a bicycle bearing down on you against the light. You stop just before it hits you - even though you had the right-of-way. A close call for you, but here's the bicyclists' side: They are trying to keep up with the fast flow of motor-vehicle traffic - often not by their own choosing but because of the shortage of bicycle lanes - yet they do not feel bound to observe lights or crossings.

OCEAN CITY, N.J. - Cynthia Donahue stopped her bike to take a sip of cool water as other cyclists whizzed by on the Ocean City Boardwalk on Monday morning. The other well-marked lanes were teeming with surrey riders, pedestrians, and joggers under a brilliant sun. But the 42-year-old Conshohocken woman said it was nothing compared with Saturday night's all-foot traffic. "It was mobbed," she said, describing long lines that snaked in front of Mack & Manco pizza stands and the ice cream places.

Everywhere there were players laughing and smiling. Along the back wall of the dressing room, Steve Mason was wearing a goofy-looking hard hat, a symbol that maybe the Columbus Blue Jackets were ready to finally laugh away their troubles and get down to the work of turning their season around. Mason had 22 saves, R.J. Umberger scored an empty-netter while sliding on his gut and the Blue Jackets beat the visiting Dallas Stars, 2-1, last night in Claude Noel's coaching debut. "It's a good way to add some humor into this," Mason said, grinning while sporting the all-white construction hat with a Blue Jackets sticker slapped on the front.

The Delaware River Port Authority yesterday announced it was launching a study aimed at easing the ferocious morning congestion on the Philadelphia side for drivers who use the Ben Franklin Bridge. The agency, which owns and operates four bridges between New Jersey and Pennsylvania, said the new study would further examine seven recommendations from a 2003 report. "We're delving a whole lot deeper and really getting more detailed into studying things, so we're doing traffic counts and origin and destination studies, and we're looking into environmental factors.

A highway bypass through the Gloucester County countryside might unsnarl traffic on a popular route to the Jersey Shore. It might also disturb the dead. The proposed 1.5-mile Mullica Hill bypass, designed to ease a notorious bottleneck on Route 322, would funnel heavy traffic past a century-old cemetery owned by the Holy Name of Jesus Church. "I worry about what effect the vibrations, the pollution and the runoff water will have on the crypts," said Larry Wallace, a member of the Roman Catholic church's cemetery committee.
