This nation's first Supreme Court was an appointed court. President George Washington selected John Jay of New York as its first chief justice and, as his associates, John Blair of Virginia, William Cushing of Massachusetts, James Wilson of Pennsylvania, James Iredell of North Carolina, and John Rutledge of South Carolina. That first panel, established by Congress in 1789, set the standard not only for its successors, but for each state supreme court as it was created. There have been many honorable courts along the way, and many distinguished justices.

Joseph A. Dewechter, a mail carrier in Gloucester City from the mid-1950s to the mid-1980s, "was an old-time carrier that everybody loved," said Joseph Townsend, a mailman there these days. "Joe never wore shorts," as is the style for many carriers. "He wore the long pants through the summer, winter. " And, Townsend said, Mr. Dewechter used an old leather bag, "the kind that went out with the horses. " Townsend laughed and added: "The last of the Mohicans. " On Tuesday, Nov. 4, Mr. Dewechter, 89, of Gloucester City, died of cardiac arrest at Cooper University Hospital in Camden.

In the chaotic aftermath of Jerry Sandusky's 2012 arrest on child-molestation charges, the NCAA apparently was so intent on punishing Pennsylvania State University that it overlooked questions about its authority to do so, according to e-mails from the organization made public Wednesday. "I know we are banking on the fact that the school is so embarrassed they will do anything, but I am not sure about that," Kevin Lennon, the NCAA vice president for academic and membership affairs, said in a July 2012 message to the NCAA's then-director of enforcement, Julie Roe Lach.

Dugan, the chair of the Burlington County Board of Elections. Dugan, a Democrat, sided with the other Democratic board member, Alice Furia, in defending the ballots for which the Democrat state committee had helped voters apply.
