When the simple act of throwing a baseball became a major challenge, Greg Welsh knew it was time to head to the dugout. Welsh, the Council Rock South senior lefthander for the Suburban One League National/Bicentennial team, was on the mound Monday during a brief but heavy storm that suspended semifinal play of the 25th annual Carpenter Cup baseball tournament at Citizens Bank Park. The SOL National/Bicentennial holds a 4-3 lead over the SOL American/Continental in the bottom of the seventh inning.

Beachgoers at the Jersey shore looked to the sky and found an unpleasant sight Saturday afternoon — but it wasn't seagulls circling or dark storm clouds breaking the sun-soaked summer day. It was two swastikas — one inside a Star of David — flown on a plane-led banner above the beach like an ad for a bar's karaoke night or a restaurant's seafood special. "First I was like, ‘Did I just see what I thought I saw fly by?'? " said Kim Silverman, 54, a Philadelphia woman who was enjoying the waves at Harvey Cedars on Long Beach Island around 3 p.m. when she looked up to see the symbol, long associated with the horrors of Nazi Germany, traveling across the blue sky. "I was shocked.

Don­na Summer died too soon at age 63. The mo­ment I heard of the dis­co diva's pass­ing, I im­me­di­ate­ly thought of a recurring scene at the An­chor­age in Som­ers Point, N.J., at the height of her pop­u­lar­i­ty. In the late 1970s and ear­ly 1980s, the icon­ic Jer­sey Shore bar nicknamed one por­tion of its in­te­ri­or "Ralph's Lounge," a tip of the hat to an epon­y­mous bar­tend­er whose bushy black mus­tache and leath­er avi­a­tor's cap I can still pic­ture to­day.

It all comes down to sand - those tiny particles of rock that form the beaches that draw thousands of tourists and billions of dollars in revenue to the Jersey Shore. And the question before the state Beach Erosion Commission yesterday was how to get more of it onto New Jersey's dwindling coast and how to keep it there. In its presentation at the lengthy public hearing, a representative of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said that studies of various sections of the state's Atlantic coast and Delaware Bay shoreline are either under way or will begin by the end of 1996.

It's summertime. When Fridays mean a short workday, car trunks packed with beach gear and pockets jingling with toll money for the drive to the Jersey Shore. Beach regulars have their pick of Shore communities, from Bay Head to Cape May. But most return to the same towns each trip. In fact, in a small, informal survey of about two dozen residents of Camden and Gloucester Counties, only about five of 20 Shore towns appeared to be favored. Recently, these residents of Gloucester and Camden Counties, all active in their communities, were asked where they and their friends, families and neighbors escape for the weekend.

The boys and girls of Jersey Shore arrive in Miami Beach Thursday with more baggage than a sold-out jumbo jet. We're talking heavy emotional baggage here, folks, not just the suitcases and duffel bags that the young sophisticates used to lug their shorts and thongs down to Florida for their latest hot-tub hiatus. We're talking about Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola and her ex, muscle-bound Ronnie "Fist Pump Brah" Magro, both of them still raw from their breakup, becoming housemates again.

SEA ISLE CITY, N.J. - Among its regulars (and in the seaside precincts of Sea Isle City you can measure them not simply in numbers, but in generations), word that Busch's seafood house was going to pack it in after 128 years - and be demolished! - did not go down at all well. Leah Marmon, who had been coming, well, "since I was born," was waiting for a table Friday evening. "People were in tears," she offered. "In tears!" The rambling, white-clapboard, faded-canopied Busch's - 450 seats under eight-foot dropped ceilings, hour-long waits between 6:45 and 8:45, fount of a legendary, sweet, she-crab soup ("Tuesday and Sunday only")

Beth Kephart is the author of the new book "Small Damages," which was just nominated for the 2013 YALSA Best Young Adult Fiction prize In the same way that I believed in black raspberry ice cream, blue-fingered crab, and the pink sheen of a flipped shell, I believed, as a kid, in the Jersey Shore, specifically Stone Harbor. It possessed me and I possessed it those two weeks of every year when our parents would pack the caroming car with suits, rafts, shovels, pails, rusty-bottomed beach chairs, crab traps, tangled reels, and (where there was still room)
