A renewal appears to be stirring in Burlington City, one year after city officials launched a strategy to reverse the fortunes of the depressed community on the Delaware. On a warm day last week the subtle signs were there, from the begonias and plum marigolds planted around the downtown trees, to the customers filling the seats at a sidewalk cafe, to the stream of cars crawling down High Street. Signs on two storefront windows announced a new brewery and a hair salon are coming soon, words of hope that replaced the dreariness of empty, darkened buildings that have marred the downtown in recent years.

They're slimy, gelatinous sea creatures about the size of a dime, and they're washing up on Ocean City beaches. The clear, blob-like salps appear every few years, usually driven in by winds and ocean currents, state officials said. They don't sting or harm bathers. They're just annoying, especially when encountered in clusters. Salps "pop up when the conditions are right, then they're gone a short time later," said Larry Ragonese, a spokesman for the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.

THEY SAY A lie repeated often enough will come to be seen as the truth. We hope that isn't the case with SugarHouse's claims about where their casino would be located. Contrary to what Philadelphians may read in the papers, SugarHouse would be located in both Fishtown and Northern Liberties - not just in Fishtown. We believe SugarHouse is working to create the impression that its casino would be located only in Fishtown because the membership of the Northern Liberties Neighbors Association has chosen not to discuss a potential community-benefits agreement with SugarHouse at this time.

A commemorative marking the 200th anniversary of the greatest real estate bargain for the United States - the Louisiana Purchase - was issued this week. It is the third time the Postal Service has recalled the occasion. The 37-cent stamp, issued Wednesday, is vertical in format and depicts three unidentified signers of the treaty, along with the handwritten treaty with France superimposed on a map of the United States. The purchase annexed 828,000 square miles to the fledgling United States for $15 million.

We are what we eat. But we are also where we live. Volumes of anthropological, criminological, and sociological research back me up on this. What results is a rich stew of eccentric flavors seasoned by our parents' housing histories and their parents' housing histories, too. Is it any wonder then that home-buying - and home-selling - decisions are often driven by emotion, that gut feeling that this is the house we were meant to live in?...

Visitors to New Jersey chain restaurants may soon have more information when deciding whether to add fries and a shake to their order. A bill in the Legislature would require chains to post calorie counts for all items on menus inside the restaurant and at drive-up windows. Aimed at curbing obesity by helping eaters make the healthiest choices, the bill would affect any chain that has 20 or more locations nationwide. The Senate is scheduled to vote on it today. Consumers aren't very good at guessing the calories of a cheeseburger or a bowl of fettuccini Alfredo, according to a study published in the American Journal of Public Health and cited by authors of the bill.

THE MOMENT Sylvester Stallone hit the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art in the original "Rocky," there was no denying that this city was more than ready for its close-up. Who could have known that that indelible shot of Rocky Balboa, the ham-and-egg club fighter played by Stallone in the iconic 1976 film, climbing the steps and doing an exultant dance as the lights of the Ben Franklin Parkway sparkled in the predawn, autumnal air would mark a seminal moment in Philadelphia's pop-culture history.
