Mayor Chuck Billingham last night formally signed a long-awaited, much- anticipated agreement with Gloucester Point Inc., giving the investment group the right to build a $4 million restaurant and marina complex on the city's waterfront. The signing of the agreement, which took almost a year of negotiations to reach, was greeted by a standing ovation from the 70 or so people who turned out for the occasion. "Just two days ago, someone said to me it's never going to happen in their lifetime," an elated Billingham said.

Imagine: A beautiful, shimmering marina with 1,400 boat slips, a convenience store, and maybe even a restaurant - all squeezed between two of the Delaware River's bigger smokestack industries, Philadelphia Electric Co. and Scotfoam Corp. The idea may sound a little odd, but to Eddystone Borough, it sounds like music. And on Monday, borough officials, excited over just such a proposal, quickly approved a new ordinance allowing marinas, motels and hotels inside the borough's heavy-industrial zone.

Having grown up in a Philadelphia family in which his mother was Pennsylvania Dutch and his father was a German immigrant, Ernest Utsch Jr. got to be a part-time translator for his World War II tank outfit. After his father apprenticed with a Philadelphia candy-maker, Mr. Utsch and his father ran Ernest Utsch & Son, a candy-maker's shop on 29th Street near Girard Avenue, before and after the war. And after father and son had rented their boat to fishing parties at the Jersey Shore for a while, the son said, "We should build our own place to have our own boat in our own place," Ernest Utsch III said.

Developers hoping to build a restaurant and marina complex on the city's waterfront are aiming to start launching boats there by the summer. The 209-boat-rack marina could be operating at the site of the old Coast Guard station at Gloucester Point by July if it is approved in the spring, said Robert Bevan, a spokesman for Gloucester Point Inc. That part of the development would cost about $1 million. Bevan said there are no other boat-launching facilities in the area, so there is a real demand for the marina.

Neshaminy State Park will receive an early $2 million Christmas gift from the state this year. The money is part of a $100 million effort to improve state forests and parks. Most of the money for the park will go to upgrade its 16-acre marina. The marina, along the Delaware River, will get a 59-slip pier along with substantial improvements to its existing piers. Richard W. Eberle, the park manager, said that four of the park's five piers, each of which is 25 years old, had begun to decay.

After more than a year of negotiations, investors who want to build a $4 million restaurant and marina complex on the waterfront have come to an agreement with city officials that will allow construction to begin soon. Mayor Chuck Billingham said yesterday that he and officials from Gloucester Point Inc., a group of seven South Jersey businessmen, had signed a 69-year lease for the former Coast Guard station on the city's waterfront. "I'm ecstatic," Billingham said. "The thing that makes me feel so good about this is that all through the campaign, we were telling people that by just being positive, we can close deals.

"The Butcher's Wife" is a romantic comedy from "The Twilight Zone. " It's the story of a woman named Marina (Demi Moore) who has The Vision Thing. Not the George Bush kind - something more in a metaphysical, Joan of Arc line. Marina has the power to predict the course of people's lives, and a particularly uncanny ability to scope out their proper mate. She has a little more trouble where her own romantic destiny is concerned, until she dreams of her fated meeting with a man ("my Adonis!"

On Feb. 24, Leslie Wright made her daily trip to the marina at Neshaminy State Park in Croydon to check on 14 white ducks that she and other denizens of the marina have adopted. When she got there, four adolescents were throwing rocks at the birds. Earlier in the week, park rangers had chased away teenagers who also were pelting the ducks. The two attacks injured two ducks, one with a broken leg and the other with a damaged eye. Another duck was missing and presumed dead. Wright said she couldn't understand what could make kids do such a thing to defenseless animals.

  A new marina will finally be built along the Delaware River in Bristol Borough, after it was announced Tuesday that the borough will receive a $1.5 million federal grant to cap off the funding needed for the $2.5 million project. For nearly a decade, local residents and politicians have hoped to construct a marina in the river to complement the borough's waterfront park and trail, which are only a few hundred feet from the borough's main stretch of shops and restaurants. But officials had not been able to find ways to fully fund the project until this federal grant was awarded.

WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that a Florida man's floating home was a house, not a boat, and not covered under maritime law, in a case that could affect thousands of people around the country who make their home on floating structures in marinas, bays, and coves. The court ruled 7-2 for Fane Lozman, who argued that the two-story craft approximately 60 feet in length that he towed to the marina in Riviera Beach, Fla., should not have been affected by maritime law. Justice Stephen G. Breyer, who included a picture of Lozman's craft in the opinion, said maritime law affects vessels that are "watercraft or other artificial contrivance used, or capable of being used, as a means of transportation on water.

The Coast Guard is looking for a boater whose 23-foot pleasure craft was found empty and adrift a mile off of Wildwood. A Good Samaritan spotted the boat about noon Monday and aleted the Coast Guard. The boat's owner, Jason Sill, 39, of Cape May Courthouse, was last seen an hour earlier leaving the Pier 47 Marina in Wildwood, the Coast Guard said. A boat from Coast Guard Station Cape May rendezvoused with the pleasure craft and discovered the keys still in the ignition with the engine in the down position with the throttle forward.

There was a moment during the height of the real estate bubble when it seemed as if there was a soaring condo tower planned for every available site on Philadelphia's Delaware waterfront. In the end, very little got built. But the speculative frenzy produced one very good result: It prompted the Nutter administration to complete a high-minded master plan aimed at turning the city's abandoned docklands into a real neighborhood.   A funny thing has happened in the three months since the planning commission approved that long-awaited waterfront plan.

ATLANTIC CITY - The Borgata wants out of an $860,000-a-year assessment as part of an expansion of the Special Improvement District under the new state-run tourism district the Christie administration created. "We just don't belong in SID," said Tom Ballance, Borgata's senior vice president of development. "We are different. " As the Shore kicks off its busiest season with Memorial Day weekend, some say the legal case underscores the growing competitive tension between the Marina District and the Boardwalk as Atlantic City's gaming revenue continues to plummet.

AVALON, N.J. - This Cape May County shore town is where state regulations about precisely how and where the public could reach New Jersey's beaches were undone. Avalon's lawsuit against the state Department of Environmental Protection led a court to strike down rules requiring public-access points every quarter-mile along the shore, and restrooms nearby. The rules were issued during the tenure of Gov. Jon S. Corzine, a Democrat. The administration of Republican Gov. Christie wants to let municipalities write their own public-access plans for the shoreline, subject to state approval.

ATLANTIC CITY - A casino's size and freshness often equate to market success. Yet two of the smallest and oldest gambling halls here, Resorts and Trump Marina, are banking on old themes to bring them new glory. At Resorts, gaming-industry veteran Dennis Gomes - who with JEMB Realty Corp., of New York, bought Atlantic City's first casino from its lenders in December for $31 million - envisions a return to the Roaring Twenties, complete with flapper dresses (designed by him) for cocktail waitresses and period uniforms for bellmen, butlers, valet staff, and table dealers.
