Criminal defendants are entitled to a "speedy trial" - a clock that usually runs out at 70 days in the federal system. It's more likely, however, that the process will take about a year. Today marks 1,829 days (more than five years) that brothers David, 46, and Stephen Schulz, 39, of Long Branch, Monmouth County, have been held in prison on drug charges without bail and without going to trial. Their relatives said the brothers had been railroaded. Authorities said the delay was the defendants' own doing.

A game that was physical on the floor spilled into the stands, so Camden's state Group 3 boys' basketball semifinal was called with 63 seconds left to play and Long Branch declared a 58-47 winner at Brick Memorial High last night. Instead of celebrating with shouts of joy and hugs, Long Branch players ran to the locker room as fights broke out close to the Camden bench in stands filled mostly with Green Wave fans. Police brought in dogs and sprayed pepper spray to control the crowd, estimated at 2,000, and at least two arrests were made.

It has all the earmarks of a dime novel or its modern-day equivalent, the made-for-TV mystery. On a winter day, the clothing and personal effects of a woman are found on a beach along with a suicide note. Police investigate but find no body. The woman's daughter later cashes in two life insurance policies for more than $300,000. Then, 10 months after she disappeared, the woman walks into a New York hospital, reportedly suffering from amnesia. And the money is all gone. But this plot line is of an actual case that is unfolding in Monmouth County and this week prompted an investigator to go to Canada looking for clues.

Bridget Sharkey set down the letter on the couch. The words, written in the near-perfect handwriting of a 14-year-old who is serious about her studies, seemed alien coming from this soft-spoken girl. "I sat there with my insides burning, hearing the sounds that bothered me the most: chewing and swallowing," she wrote. "More and more sounds bothered me, and this time it gave me a new reaction. It made me angry. " For Bridget, dinner with her family in their Schwenksville home was becoming a nightmare.

Maria Montalvo was the quintessential super-mom, friends say. The 29-year-old registered nurse often worked 60 to 80 hours a week, at two and sometimes three jobs, to support her four children. She helped out on bingo nights at the Catholic school her two older children attended. She was getting ready to move to a nicer neighborhood. And she always made sure the kids wore seat belts. Even on the morning last week when she drove her two youngest children - Rafael Aponte, 28 months, and Zoraida Aponte, 16 months - from her Union Beach home to her in-laws' house 14 miles away in Long Branch.

OCEAN CITY, N.J. - Whether they're just grinding their toes a few inches into the sand or carving out deep holes that look like moon craters by day's end, beachgoers seem to have an innate need to dig. Beach patrols along the Jersey Shore are reconsidering limits on that digging since 12-year-old Ezra Cornman, of Brooklyn, N.Y., died Wednesday in a Monmouth County hospital the day after he was trapped under the sand when a tunnel he was digging on...

Winter continues to drag on through our region, bringing snow and ice and ice again, making outdoor running unpleasant if not dangerous. That means, for some runs, the treadmill is a better option. To me, the treadmill - which I call the dreadmill - is boring. But if my only options are a treadmill run or no run at all, I'll pick the treadmill every time. Here's how to get through those stationary runs - without annoying your fellow runners. Distractions When I retreat to the treadmill, I try to get on the machine in front of the TV that's showing The Price Is Right, which is a lot more entertaining than cable news shows.

Fifth in a series of profiles of New Jersey's U.S. Senate candidates. In 1988, Marlene Howard threw her weight behind 37-year-old Frank Pallone for the U.S. House seat that her husband, James J. Howard, had held when he died. "Right out of college, he helped us. He was a hard worker. He used to register voters for my late husband, and he campaigned for us," Marlene Howard, 82, of Spring Lake Heights, recalled Friday. Since Pallone was elected that year, Howard said, he has "always continued everything Jim stood for. " Twenty-five years later, the family of the late Sen. Frank R. Lautenberg, whose death in June set up a special election for his seat, has endorsed Pallone as the only candidate "ready to continue Frank Lautenberg's progressive leadership in the U.S. Senate.

Security will be beefed up at the New Jersey Marathon next month at the Shore, and all bags will be banned for spectators at the start and finish lines, because of the Boston Marathon bombings, organizers said Friday. "If you need something, it needs to go in your pocket," executive race director Joe Gigas said. The only bags allowed will be clear ones for clothing issued to runners by race organizers. Those bags will be checked by bomb-sniffing dogs when they are transported from start to finish lines.
