A Social Security office on South Broad Street close to the Wells Fargo Center will be closed during the Democratic National Convention, though other nearby businesses say they plan to remain open. Social Security officials said the office at 3336 S. Broad St. will be closed from July 25 to 28 because of the expected DNC-related road closures and heavy traffic. The office will reopen at 9 a.m. July 29. "The street closures and rerouted traffic will make it difficult for our employees as well as the public to access the office," District Manager Joan Permar said in a statement.

Retailers across the region claimed a successful Black Friday weekend, with the heaviest traffic in years at area shopping malls. Although more people than ever are doing their holiday shopping online, two of the area's biggest malls reported substantially more shoppers in their stores than on the typical weekend. More than 95,000 people went through Cherry Hill Mall on Black Friday alone, said Lisa Wolstromer, the mall's team marketing director. That compares with the usual Friday mall crowd of about 25,000 shoppers, she said.

When Moorestown police arrived minutes later, Lt. Lee Lieber said, the driver was dead at the scene.

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 chief executive of Campbell Soup Co. is in contact with his office and receiving company materials while recuperating from surgery after a traffic accident last week, spokesman Anthony Sanzio said yesterday. The executive, Douglas R. Conant, who has been Campbell's CEO since 2001, also suffered broken ribs. Sanzio said the company was not disclosing what surgery was required or which hospital Conant is in. None of the injuries affected Conant's ability to make decisions, Sanzio said.
