CELIA SWEENEY had wanted her husband, William, to retire a year-and-a- half ago. "He should have retired - I knew he should have," she said, "but that's the way he was. He had to keep busy. " Her husband, whom most people knew as Bruce and who worked for the city's Office of Fleet Management for 35 years, died Wednesday of head injuries suffered Saturday when a ladder collapsed from under him in a city workshop on Hunting Avenue near Front Street. Sweeney, 57, who lived in Frankford, died after two unsuccessful brain surgeries at Temple University Hospital.

A COMMUNITY cloaked in grief held a prayer vigil Sunday night to honor two fallen firefighters near the charred Kensington ruins where the pair sacrificed their lives one week ago. In the end, the Day of Honor and Remembrance for Capt. Robert Neary and Lt. Daniel Sweeney - who were promoted posthumously at their funerals - simply said "thank you" to the firefighters. "Thank you to those men, to all the others, men and women, who woke up in the middle of the night [and]

Moorestown girls' lacrosse coach Deanna Knobloch had a much different view of her latest accomplishment in a career that is shaping up as one of the best in South Jersey history, regardless of sport. Knobloch improved to 400-29-4 with Saturday's 8-3, season-opening win over visiting Strath Haven of Delaware County in a nonleague matchup played under raw, damp conditions. Instead of looking at it as her 400th win, Knobloch saw it as the first this season, a year in which the only goal remains the same: to be the last New Jersey team standing at the end. "This is a new season, and this is just the first rung up the ladder," she said.

By David Holahan When I was a child, my family shared an aluminum extension ladder with the Harmon clan and another neighbor in Long Island. Sometimes finding it was a kind of shell game: Which garage, shed, or porch is the ladder under now? The money saved by not buying our own ladders couldn't have been much, but the Harmons had 10 kids, and I had four brothers, so every little bit helped. And how often did any of us need a ladder? The boundary between us and the Harmons was vague.

Gregorio De Falco of the Italian coast guard in Livorno. In the conversation, De Falco repeatedly orders Schettino to return to the ship to oversee the evacuation, while Schettino resists. The audio was first made available on the website of the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera, and the Italian coast guard confirmed its authenticity Tuesday.
