TOMS RIVER, N.J. - At a picnic area on the Garden State Parkway, Robert Marshall pulled over shortly after midnight to check a tire on his white Cadillac. He was walking to the rear of the car, he said, when he was struck on the head and knocked unconscious. When he came to, Marshall said, he found his wife, Maria, dead in the front seat of the car, with two bullet wounds to her back. She had been shot with a .45-caliber automatic pistol. The story didn't add up, and Marshall would be convicted of hiring his wife's killers.

Drew Burdsall goes about 5-foot-4, 145 pounds. And for the last three weeks, he has played with a cast on his broken right hand.

Burdsall had eight catches for 134 yards as top-seeded Pennsville beat No. 8 Gloucester, 61-28, in the South Jersey Group 1 quarterfinals. Burdsall's fifth catch gave him 169 for his career, eclipsing the mark set by Anthony Fasano at Verona in 2001.

LANOKA HARBOR, N.J. - Whenever Ray Lawry touches the football, there is an unquestioned buzz in the stadium.

The Oyster Creek nuclear power plant remains on "alert" status even as the rising waters that caused problems with the reactor's pumping system continue to abate, a spokesman for the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission said Tuesday. Despite the "alert" status, which is the second least serious level, the reactor, located in Lacey Township, Ocean County, is considered "safe," he said. The Oyster Creek facility was impacted by the storm in three ways - rising water in intake canals affected pump performance in an intake structure; a power outage in the area also hit the plant, causing it to switch to back up generator to power the facility, and winds and weather took out 21 of about 50 warning sirens positioned in a 10-mile radius of the plant, said spokesman Neil Sheehan.
