Mary Jane Fisher's apartment in Gloucester City's notorious Highland Park apartment complex has lived several lives. The country-style kitchen once featured geese that were painted on everything from the teapot to the clock to the breadbox. The birds were followed by a more urbane black and peach lily motif, which still lends a Japanese flavor to the room. And Fisher always made sure the bedroom walls were painted a new color every year. "I just get tired of things," said Fisher, smoking a cigarette as she sat at her new glass kitchen table recently.

Congratulations, Pitman fans: You get to spend another day watching Joe Crispin. Let's hope you enjoy it more than Highland Park did. Crispin torched Highland Park, the Central Jersey Group 1 champion, for 31 points, 14 assists, 4 rebounds and 2 steals last night while turning over the ball just two times in a 97-74 win at Nottingham High. Pitman advances to the boys' basketball state final against Newark Science, a 56-40 winner over Midland Park. Crispin's numbers, impressive as they are, don't tell just how much he dominated the game.

Highland Park figured out how to keep Jon Crispin quiet, but that only caused Ron Myers to make more noise. Myers had 31 points, 18 rebounds, 5 assists and 2 steals last night to lead the Pitman boy's basketball team to a 65-62 win over Highland Park in the state Group 1 semifinals at Nottingham High. "Personally, I think that's a fair evening," Pitman coach Craig Harper said of Myers' effort. "As is usually the case when teams concentrate on Crispin, Myers steps it up. " Myers, a 6-foot-4 senior forward, scored 15 points in the first half and 16 in the second once Highland Park put a box-and-one on Crispin.

Burlington City senior Larry Johnson was up at 3 in the morning, but it was Florence that looked tired last night in the South Jersey Group 1 boys' basketball championship game. Johnson, a forward who was so pumped for the game that he could hardly sleep, scored 21 points and had nine rebounds, both game highs, to lead the fourth-seeded Blue Devils to a 50-39 victory over second-seeded Florence before a sellout crowd of more than 1,600 at Clearview. "I was so ready to go today," Johnson said.

Penn State offensive tackle Matt McCartin no longer feels bitter toward the Southern Methodist football program he used to play for, only sadness for what might have been. The 6-5, 274-pound fifth-year senior was there in February 1987 when the NCAA gave the Mustangs the first "death penalty" for paying players while the Southwest Conference school was already on probation. He still remembers the whispers, the accusations, investigation and, finally, the punishment after reports surfaced that the school paid several players through a slush fund.

Fourth of seven parts. In at least 20 states, lawmakers have stripped locally elected school board members of their power in impoverished, mostly minority communities, leaving parents without a voice - or a vote - in their children's education, according to a News21 state-by-state analysis of school takeovers. More than 5.6 million people live in places where state officials took over entire districts or individual schools in the past six years, according to News21 data collected from state government agencies.

Barbara Cohen, 85, the mother of Comcast Corp. executive David L. Cohen, died late Thursday afternoon, June 23, at her home in Highland Park, N.J. Mrs. Cohen was diagnosed in March with brain cancer, her son said Thursday night from his childhood home. "She was outspoken. I came by my bluntness and candor genetically," said Cohen, who served as chief of staff for former Mayor Ed Rendell. "She was very direct and straightforward," said daughter Nancy, also describing her as principled and resilient.

At the beginning of the season, it looked like a long shot that Burlington City would play into the second week of March. That was of little consolation last night to City coach Bryan Warrick, especially after his Blue Devils came close to advancing to a state championship game. Trailing by 42-36, with 1 minute, 30 seconds to play in the Group 1 state semifinals, City staged a furious rally that came up agonizingly short when Steve Weiler misfired on a three-pointer with less than 10 seconds to play, and Highland Park walked away with a 44-41 victory at Nottingham High.

The school district's elementary schools may be growing to the point of being unmanageable, board members learned Tuesday night. "We are growing. Our growing pains are immense," said Assistant Superintendent James B. Blackburn after he told the board that five of the district's eight elementary schools were among the nine largest schools in Delaware County. "We just wanted to alert you to the sizes we are facing in Upper Darby," he said. "They are growing. They are not decreasing.

The Notre Dame game was your typical Nate Smith performance. Temple's stat sheet shows seven tackles. Film will prove Nate Smith can bang with offensive linemen and also burst by them - and also can cover speedy receivers deep down the field. Of course, the back of the jersey tells the real tale. There are, in fact, two Nate Smiths starting, and sometimes starring, on defense this season for the 21st-ranked Owls. A defensive end who converted from middle linebacker, and a safety.

Karl O. Karhumaa, 90, a sculptor who taught at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts for more than 20 years, exerting a quiet but powerful influence on a generation of Philadelphia sculptors, died Monday at Wyndmoor Hills Health Care & Rehabilitation Center. He was recovering from a broken hip, friends said, when he died in his sleep. "He had a dry sense of humor, and his sculpture has humor - it's a lot like him," said friend and fellow sculptor Jerry Klein. Klein said Mr. Karhumaa was a figurative artist but saw figures "in a different way" than others at the academy.

For Nate D. Smith, the journey back to the starting lineup on the Temple defense has been a circuitous one. After starting 10 of 11 games last season at middle linebacker, Smith, a 6-foot, 230-pound sophomore from Highland Park, N.J., figured that he was headed for a truly breakout season in 2013. After all, only fellow linebacker Tyler Matakevich, who earned Big East rookie of the year after his 101-tackle effort, had more tackles than Smith for Temple. But Smith, who fell into coach Matt Rhule's doghouse after showing up late for a spring practice, has bounced around this season.

NATE D. SMITH is making quite an impression at Temple's spring practices. "He's a very instinctive player," Owls coach Steve Addazio said of the redshirt freshman middle linebacker. "He's still learning, but boy, he plays fast and he makes plays. "So I like what I've seen out of him right now. He's just got to keep growing as a player and make sure he's accountable. " Despite standing only 5-10 and weighing 220 pounds, Smith has a chance to win the starting position vacated by Stephen Johnson.

Lailah Pratt leaned on the wall outside the Palmyra locker room, bowed her head, and shook it several times with a look of disbelief. "It's amazing," Pratt said. "I would have never thought this was going to happen. " Pratt, a senior wing guard, was talking about the fact that Palmyra is now within one win of claiming the NJSIAA Group 1 state championship. With Pratt scoring 12 of her 17 points in the second half, the Panthers fought past Highland Park, 49-43, last night in a semifinal game played at Deptford.
