JERSEY SHORE, Pa. - If you travel to this small riverfront town with the odd name, don't expect to find TV's Snooki and The Situation or see wide sandy beaches with a boardwalk and a big blue ocean. They're in another state, 250 miles to the east. But if you want to drive along the western branch of the Susquehanna River, view the changing fall foliage in the surrounding mountains, hike or bike a 65-mile trail along scenic Pine Creek, or fish and hunt in nearby state parks and forests, then this north-central Pennsylvania town of 4,000 would be worth the four-hour drive from Philadelphia.

It's a happy, happy day for the Garden State: Jersey Shore has decided to pack up and leave. (That'd be the TV show, not the locale, though I wouldn't mind if Wildwood took a hiatus.) On Thursday, MTV said the coming sixth season of its educational reality show will be its last, "bringing the party to a close after three years, two continents and one lil' bambino     (not to mention countless punch-ups, blowouts and catchphrases). " The final season will premiere Oct. 4, but the cabler will have a full slate of programming to say goodbye to Paul "Pauly D. " DelVecchio , Michael "The Situation" Sorrentino , Jennifer "JWoww" Farley , Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi , and the rest of the cast.

Editor's Note: Due to a technical error, a feature story on the MTV program "Jersey Shore" that was written by Yvonne Villarreal of the Los Angeles Times appeared briefly on philly.com as a column written by Chuck Darrow of the Philadelphia Daily News. LOS ANGELES - Like a tan growing pale, "Jersey Shore" is fading into the TV sunset. Thursday marks the beginning of its sixth season - its last. It began as just another low-budget MTV reality show, with lower expectations, that would chronicle the fist-pumping antics of its ultra-bronzed, ultra-average stars cooped up in a house in Seaside Heights, N.J. But when the series aired in December 2009, it quickly and curiously morphed into a surprisingly potent pop force that made "Snooki" a household name and turned an unknown cast into late-night punch lines.

And so the great cultural experiment draws to a close. In this week's fourth-season finale, the dim denizens of Jersey Shore ended their long exile in Florence. So what did we, the viewers, learn? (Pauly D and the gang clearly learned nothing.) For one thing, that Italy was an inspired destination. If any world leader can endorse the "gym, tan, laundry" lifestyle, it's Italy's prime minister, Silvio Berlusconi. Although I believe he refers to it as palestra, abbronzatura, lavanderia . I think we can also agree that classy is the same in any language.

Justin Bieber hurt his head during a Paris concert Thursday, even lost consciousness for a bit, but not before, trouper that he is, he wrapped up the set. J-Bieb, 18, walked into a glass wall, sustaining what docs later called a concussion. He sang the closer, then passed out backstage, says he, for 15 secs. He tweeted later that you "gotta laugh at yourself sometimes. " All this a day after girl riots in Oslo.

With a deep breath of ocean air for optimism and some midday waves to stoke an appetite, I've enjoyed largely charmed experiences each year in Jersey Shore restaurants. But each summer, there are inevitable exceptions. Seasonally staffed kitchens, hastily prepped spaces, and a sudden crush of customers can be a recipe for unpredictable dining. And my first few beach meals this summer, focused initially from Northfield north to Long Beach Island, brought unusually choppy seas. There were three meals I wish I could have back: Marty Grims' revamp of Tucker's Tavern in Beach Haven (an overpriced rush job that packed a bland multicourse meal into 45 unsatisfying minutes)

The Chester County all-stars advanced to the semifinals of the Carpenter Cup Classic yesterday by beating the Catholic League, 10-5, at Penn's Meiklejohn Stadium. Chester County will face the Jersey Shore all-stars, who advanced by winning yesterday's second game, 6-2, against Suburban One National/Bicentennial. Chester scored five runs in the seventh inning, which was highlighted by a two-run double by Spring-Ford's Rick Gehman. Jersey Shore used sound pitching to win its game.

Sure, the city's great when the temperature hits 80 degrees. The most eclectic vendors are out. The worst-dressed homeless are in full bloom. The river drives are greening. The fruit looks fresher in the Italian Market. Occasionally, someone will smile. But this also is the season that tempts the soul toward the cool breezes that blow in off the surf. The time to discover the seashells left from a cold winter. Imagine the promise of a Friday night at one of those deliciously decadent and financially ravenous casinos by the beach.

People here seem to love the Shore. But for a relative newcomer to Philadelphia, the words Jersey Shore evoke specific images: Hurricane Sandy-battered towns, absurd MTV characters, miles of standstill traffic, a failing casino town. So why do friends and colleagues continuously go down the Shore, to family summer homes, hotels, rented beach houses? What incredible activities do they find there? What is it they're seeking? It couldn't be just sand and surf, right? Jersey's beaches are probably like any other: sand getting everywhere, sun beating down, waves crashing around, and that universal smell.

W hat it is: Admittedly, one might not equate mozzarella cheese directly with the concept of a Jersey Shore food. But mozzarella - a white, semisoft high-water-content cheese - certainly has its place in various menu items often sought by those roaming the shoreline looking for a bite to eat. Upon pizzas, in pasta dishes, or with the heaven-on-a-plate simplicity of sliced Jersey tomatoes tossed with bit of basil and drizzled with a touch of balsamic...

John A. Zurzola Sr., 86, formerly of Manayunk, a retired electronics specialist and a father and handyman, died Monday, July 13, of Alzheimer's disease at his retirement home in Villas, N.J. Born in 1929, Mr. Zurzola lost his own father, Frank, in 1937. His mother, Jennie, was not in good health. When she saw an opportunity for her son to live and study at Girard College, she enrolled him. He graduated in 1947. "It must have been hard for both of them," said his daughter Amy Z. Quinn.

Inside the sweltering heat of a greenhouse near the Jersey Shore, where the afternoon summer temperatures can hit 160 degrees, a bit of the Atlantic Ocean is rapidly transforming before our eyes into one of civilization's oldest treasures. "I'm literally swimming in salt," says Derrek Thomas, 43, leading us between the 2,000-gallon retention pools that line the new salt house he and his partner, chef Lucas Manteca, 38, built on Thomas' Windy Acres farm in Ocean View. "I can't get water fast enough.

LANCASTER - At age 40 and holding a place in the LPGA Hall of Fame, Karrie Webb doesn't need to prove anything more in an illustrious career that has seen her capture seven major championships and 41 tournament victories. However, it is days like Thursday's opening round of the U.S. Women's Open that fuel Webb's fire and tell her that anything is still possible at her age, especially when her exceptionally pure and rhythmic swing is on point. After parring her way around the more difficult back nine at Lancaster Country Club, Webb poured in four birdie putts on her second nine for a 4-under-par 66 and a tie with 24-year-old New Jersey native Marina Alex after 18 holes of the weather-delayed 70th national championship for women.

When the summer wind comes blowin' in from across the sea, the song of the piper man that Sinatra once sang about is likely now to be that of a raging rock cover band. At least where the Jersey Shore's music scene is concerned. The man behind a lot of these sounds is Tommy Ciccone. He not only plays in cover bands, like MoFaux, but he also books acts throughout the Shore's loudest live music points, at bars in Cape May, Margate, and Sea Isle such as Elaine's, Maynard's, The Greenhouse, Ocean Drive, The Springfield, and LaCosta.

WHEN IT comes to making wine in North America, New Jersey was an early adopter. Before wine trails and growers' cooperatives, William Alexander and Edward Antill set out to prove that New Jersey wine could stand up to a bottle of vin from across the pond. The year was 1758, and a wine smackdown was issued by Great Britain's Royal Society: Any colonist who could produce a red or white as good as a French vintage would win 200 pounds - the equivalent of some 32,000 pounds today, or more than $49,000.

Rocky took the stage at 12:30 p.m. Sunday in Cape May Court House to pick a winner in the women's World Cup soccer finals - the U.S. vs. Japan. No, not that Rocky. This Rocky is the Cape May County Park and Zoo's Siberian tiger and the top cat at the Jersey Shore. The free Cape May zoo offers vacationers a break from sea and sand, and expects to host 500,000 visitors in 2015, up from 450,000 last year. On Sunday, parents, children, and assorted strollers pressed up against newly installed, handwoven steel wire mesh - which replaces old-fashioned chain-link fencing - around Rocky's grassy habitat.

Here is an excerpt of Craig LaBan's online chat : Craig LaBan: I learned the very sad news this morning that my friend Ed Hitzel - the South Jersey food critic, publisher, and broadcaster - died Monday night at 64 of a heart attack while eating at one of his favorite restaurants, Joe Italiano's Maplewood Restaurant in Hammonton. Eddie, as he was known to friends and listeners of his "Table for One" radio show (on WOND-1400 AM and, more recently, WIP-610 AM), had become a true South Jersey restaurant icon, publishing a well-read magazine (Ed Hitzel's Restaurant Magazine)

THE PIES will be coming out hot and fast at Manco & Manco Pizza this weekend and the owners of the famous Jersey Shore eateries won't be going to trial for tax evasion after all. Charles Bangle, 55, of Somers Point, Atlantic County, pleaded guilty to tax evasion charges in U.S. District court in Camden yesterday in connection to his 2010 personal tax return and for structuring financial transactions in 2011 to avoid reporting requirements....
