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.

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.

It was the perfect summer, Lt. John McShane of the Ocean City Beach Patrol said, until the very end. As it pounded Florida, Hurricane Frances did not spare the Jersey Shore yesterday. Thousands trying to make a beach day of it found themselves in the middle of whipping winds, blowing sand and rough seas. But Frances was only partly responsible for the Shore's rough weather. The conditions were mostly due to a high-pressure system moving in from Canada, according to the National Weather Service.

ISSUE | WEATHERING THE STORM Christie should attend to Job 1 The pain on Gov. Christie's face as he was briefed on the blizzard Saturday was not the pain of empathy after hearing how the people in the Shore communities were suffering ("Back from blizzard, Christie slams rivals," Monday). You just know he was thinking, "Man, I wish I were back in New Hampshire. " Christie, who was an absentee governor for 261 partial or full days last year, needs to come to Cape May County to understand the depth of suffering in Shore communities, including Sea Isle City and the Wildwoods.

When Gov. Christie asked whether he should grab a mop and head back to the Jersey Shore to help with the cleanup, was he just kidding? At a Tuesday news conference in Trenton, the governor said his mop remarks to a young woman at a Monday town-hall meeting in Hooksett, N.H., were "a joke. " But in Cape May County, perhaps hardest hit by the snowstorm and flooding, residents and business owners were not laughing. With mops, brooms, and disinfectant in hand, some said they would love to have Christie come down and help out. And a recent Stockton University graduate started a GoFundMe campaign Tuesday called "Mops for Christie" to raise $1,000 and a little social activism.

STONE HARBOR, N.J. - While state officials surveyed the damage Monday left along the New Jersey Shore by a fierce weekend snowstorm, Gov. Christie was pelted for a second day with criticism of his assessment of the impact on the coast. "I don't know what you expect me to do. You want me to go down there with a mop?" Christie replied to a question from a young woman in New Hampshire who said she was speaking on behalf of relatives in New Jersey. She asked why he was there campaigning while New Jersey was still cleaning up from the storm.

ISSUE | CLIMATE Bay watch Thanks for the editorial "Weaker than the storms" (Tuesday). Discussions of storm damage always seem to focus on ocean-side dunes and crashing waves behind weather reporters. But on a barrier island like Long Beach Island, storm surges can destroy the homes, properties, and lives of those who live on the bay side. All the dune-building in the world will not have an impact on bay-side storm surges, in which the low-lying land is no match for the rapidly rising water.

For me, the Jersey Shore holds memories that, as E.B. White wrote in his well-known New Yorker essay of many decades ago, "seem infinitely precious and worth saving. " My father, though born in Philadelphia, grew up in Atlantic City with his two brothers. My dad was the youngest child. My grandfather, "Pop-Pop" to me and my four siblings, ran a beautiful three-story hotel in the Inlet section. He lived across the street from the Absecon Lighthouse, then painted blue and white, as was his house on Vermont Avenue.

A SOUTH JERSEY borough was in mourning yesterday, shocked at the news that one of its leading citizens was found dead on a beach 50 miles away.

The cause of Radio's death was under investigation last night, pending an autopsy at Shore Memorial Hospital in Somers Point, according to Sgt. Jeff Flynn, a police spokesman.

There's nothing unusual about whales roaming off the Jersey Shore, but in recent days, some folks have caught a rare sight along the coast: humpbacks frolicking almost in the surf. "I've never seen anything like it," said Daniel Maimone, a year-round Ocean City resident for 15 years. Maimone, a Realtor, said he was on the beach Saturday when he saw a whale close to the shore for the first time. Over the next two days, he said, he saw up to two together in the water at any one time.

Jersey Shore residents woke up Sunday to the first glimpse of sunshine in days - but also to flooded roads and sharply eroded beaches. As damage from the weekend's storm came into focus, afternoon high tides sent water surging into the streets in many Ocean County and Cape May County towns. Mike Johnston looked out over the beach from the Ocean City boardwalk near Fifth Street after a bike ride Sunday morning. "It has been getting wiped out," said Johnston, 59, of Magnolia, an estimator for a steel fabrics company.

NORTH WILDWOOD, N.J. - After the tide hit its highest Saturday afternoon, bay water lapped at the house Anthony Bencivengo has lived in for 17 years. He is accustomed to flooding on Old North Wildwood Boulevard, but the 3 or 4 inches of water that filled his first floor were unusually steep. "As long as the house is still standing, it's OK," Bencivengo, 36, said. From his front porch, he could spot the remnants of a neighbor's house, where some pieces floated and came to rest after the house collapsed into the bay. "Every one of us," he said, "worries about it every year.

ATLANTIC CITY - Even though Hurricane Joaquin appeared to be heading well out to sea, the Jersey Shore remains caught in what the National Weather Service called a "squeeze play" between weather systems conspiring to generate heavy rain, powerful winds, coastal flooding and potentially significant beach erosion. Steady winds of better than 30 m.p.h. with gusts up to 57 m.p.h. are expected to persist into Sunday afternoon, inciting beach-eating waves, indirectly tied to Joaquin whose approach is days away.
