Moorestown doesn't have a beach. But now it has a boardwalk. Wedged between a narrow stretch of Kings Highway and the township waterworks lawn, this boardwalk is 175 feet of Brazilian hardwood. Developer Blaise Ravikio built it on township property under an agreement with the township that will give him credit for public recreation improvements for future housing developments. The $20,500 walkway will help walkers and bikers negotiate a slightly dangerous section of Kings Highway just east of Lenola Road near Strawbridge Lake.

In Haddonfield, the end of an ordeal is near, say local and Camden County officials who have been overseeing the $2.5 million road construction project that has closed Grove Street between Kings Highway and Route 70 off and on since the summer. A sign at Kings Highway and Grove on Thursday advised motorists that the road would reopen Friday, weather permitting. Then a light rain arrived Thursday afternoon, delaying paving, and county spokesman Dan Keashen said opening was more likely next week, which still would be ahead of schedule.

Space is becoming a premium in Cherry Hill as applications for new development keep pouring in. "The entire township is hot," said Paul Stridick, township director of community development. "We are trying to accommodate them all. " Kennedy Health plans to break ground on a $50 million medical office building this month, and several pockets are under township review as potential "areas in need of redevelopment," which could lead to more businesses moving in. Stridick said he was running out of room along Haddonfield Road, one of the most sought-after addresses.

Haddonfield is just the sort of pristine little town that was made for a pre-Christmas shopping binge. Haddonfield has long prided itself on its history - 150 buildings were declared architecturally significant in 1971. "We have history here," the Preservation Society's executive director, Joan Aiken, told the Bulletin in 1980. "We didn't make it up, like Chestnut Hill did. " Amid its colonial housing and quaint side streets sits the admirably pedestrian-friendly downtown shopping district along Kings Highway.

For months, the peculiar saga of a downtown Swedesboro liquor shop owner scaring away customers - many of them shouted down with racial epithets in a manner reminiscent of a bygone era - has been the talk of the borough. Some were shooed from the store without the booze (or, in one case, the Coke) they had come to buy. Others were locked out. A handwritten note on the door warned patrons: "The clerk does not want to talk. " Complaints about store owner Mario "Mike" Falciani's outbursts led the mayor to call him a "known racist.

The two faded black-and-white snapshots in Joseph Crew's family photo album could easily be mistaken for memories of a summer vacation: a couple of youngsters, pants rolled up, wading up to their knees in a swimming hole. But the photos, taken outside his home, are unfortunate reminders of the heavy floods that have plagued his Cherry Hill neighborhood for close to 30 years. "All the water from Kings Highway runs down here, and that's the only drain on Ormond Avenue," Crew said, pointing to a grated storm drain barely two feet deep.

When puppeteer Laurencio Carlos Ruiz says you're his right hand, you can believe it - he's being literal. That's because in his interactive, all-ages Fringe Festival show Give Me a Hand!, members of the audience are called upon to operate his puppet's right hand, with a task to complete. The bilingual show, aimed primarily at toddlers, includes magic tricks with colorful objects of different sizes and shapes. The lesson: Anything can become a puppet and everybody a puppeteer. Go on, play your part.

As the storm slammed into Clarksboro, Pam Kafka took shelter in her Kings Highway basement. "I heard the wind blowing and things cracking and breaking," the retired teacher recalls. "It sounded like a hurricane. " Emerging from the house about 10 minutes later, Kafka, 64, discovered that most of the landscape she loved was gone. Hundreds of trees on her family's property were uprooted, twisted, and broken - nearly four acres of dense woods so splintered and stripped that the property barely looks like home.

When he was arrested that October evening in 1777, Jonas Cattell did not realize his detention would help the patriot cause, much less affect the outcome of a Revolutionary War battle. The 18-year-old was corralled with other suspected rebels by Hessian mercenaries when he overheard talk of an attack on Americans at Fort Mercer in Red Bank, N.J., and he knew what he had to do. Released the next day, Cattell ran 10 miles, bypassing Hessians along the way, to alert fellow colonials who then repelled the larger enemy force, killing hundreds.
