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.

Ahhh, summer at the Jersey Shore. The sun. The surf. The sandwich-snatching seagulls. So many memories for Philadelphia-area families that have roots in this sand-in-more-places-than-you- want-it tradition. For Danielle Pizza (pronounced pee-zah ), one holds particular significance. It was August 2012. Pizza, 37, and her husband, Joe, of Audubon, Montgomery County, had spent the day on the beach in Ocean City, with their two children, age 3 and 1, at the time. (They now have three.)

STONE HARBOR, N.J. - On a gray, unseasonably chilly day last week, two turtle hatchlings emerged from their winter hibernation inside a hole three inches beneath the sand at the Jersey Shore. The diamondback terrapins, a unique turtle that lives in brackish waters along the coast and Delaware Bay, would soon taste freedom for the first time. But first, a biologist with the Wetlands Institute in Stone Harbor would have to remove the wire cages that had been placed above their nests last fall to protect the hatchlings - each the size of a quarter - from raccoons, skunks, and other predators.

The Bucks County manufacturer of Skee-Ball, that staple of boardwalk arcades at the Jersey Shore, has been sold to a Wisconsin rival in the family-amusements industry. Joseph W. Sladek, who bought Skee-Ball Inc., now in Chalfont, in 1985, called the sale a "bittersweet goodbye" in a news release from the buyer, family-owned Bay Tek Games Inc., which is based in Pulaski, near Green Bay. The price was not disclosed. The deal was signed Tuesday. Skee-Ball manufactures its games in Chalfont, but after a roughly three-month transition will move to Wisconsin, Gaetan Philippon, Bay Tek's chief executive, said Wednesday after meetings with Skee-Ball employees.

SEA ISLE CITY, N.J. - Images of cars, patio furniture, and chunks of ice floating in floodwaters during last month's powerful storm brought home to the public that the infrastructure along the Jersey Shore's back bays needs to be fortified. It's a situation that barrier island residents like Chris Rakus have experienced year after year. "The beachfront always gets a lot of attention . . . but it's back here that the real damage happens whenever there is flooding. And it seems like it's getting worse and more frequent," said Rakus, whose family lost two cars last month and spent days cleaning up the first level of their home, a block from the bay here.

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.
