Two Marlton teenagers were forced to drive at gunpoint to Philadelphia on Monday during an early-morning carjacking, the second in a month at the Marlton traffic circle, police said. The teenagers were uninjured. Jason Darigo, 18, and a 17-year-old passenger had stopped at a traffic signal at about 12:30 a.m. at the circle, where Routes 70 and 73 intersect, when a man with a handgun forced his way into the car, said Lt. Thomas Bresnen of the Evesham Township Police Department. The man held Darigo and his passenger, whose name was not released, at gunpoint and ordered them to drive to the Kensington section of Philadelphia.

Not to look a gift horse in the mouth, but for some reason the Cropwell Shopping Center in Marlton has been blessed with a history of attracting chefs with superior skills to its main restaurant, whatever the cuisine. First was Fish du Jour, followed by Ristorante Ghizzano and since May 1 Avanti Gourmet Ristorante Italiano, a somewhat pretentious name for a supremely good northern Italian restaurant. Avanti's claim to fame lies in the astonishing culinary accomplishments of Salvatore Composto, whose dishes are made with the freshest ingredients and which sparkle in incredibly lush sauces.

There is no doubt that Bernard A. Nesbitt killed his ex-boss. There is only doubt about why he did it. That was the message that emerged on the opening day of Nesbitt's trial yesterday before Burlington County Superior Court Judge Paul R. Kramer. Nesbitt, 39, of the 7200 block of Sommers Road in the West Oak Lane section of Philadelphia, who was a stockbroker with Graystone Nash, is accused of beating his boss, Paul E. Arnone, to death after a quarrel in the firm's Marlton office on Sept.

Iowa University senior Mike Devlin has managed to escape the facelessness often associated with being a football center. Turn to any preseason publication and you're likely to find the 6-foot-3, 280-pound senior from Cherokee High in Marlton listed as a first-team all- American. Yet Devlin, a former Inquirer first-team all-area lineman in 1987, wasn't reflecting on the preseason honors following Saturday evening's 24-14 upset loss to North Carolina State in the 10th annual Kickoff Classic at Giants Stadium.

Michael Deets plans to vacation with his family again in Florida this year, but he will probably pass on the sailboating. Deets, 14, who will be a freshman at Cherokee High School this fall, is the son of Michael J. and Sue Deets of Marlton. Just a tad over a year ago, the young man was vacationing in Florida and crewing a sailboat with a cousin and his cousin's daughter when the sailboat went over. Deets was the only one who could swim and he saved the others, an act for which the Burlington County Council, Boy Scouts of America, awarded Deets its honor medal, which is given to those who demonstrate unusual heroism and skill or resourcefulness in saving or attempting to save a life at considerable risk.

When Peter C. Westhead was 3, he was stricken with polio, said his younger brother Paul, a former college, NBA, and WNBA basketball coach.

But when Peter was 12 and Paul was 7, the West Philadelphia neighborhood kids "let him play. " "He could swing the bat pretty well, and I would run for him because he couldn't run," Paul recalled.

Gary Gans' boyhood plan - "I intended to be the first Jewish president" - didn't work out. The plan he didn't make worked out quite nicely. "When I came to the wilds of South Jersey, I didn't know I was going to stay," says the Philadelphia native, who became Congregation Beth Tikvah's first ordained rabbi in 1981. "Looks like it was meant to be. " After "three-plus decades of growing together" with his Marlton flock of about 200 households, Gans will retire Aug. 1 but continue as rabbi emeritus for two years.

In the year in which he turned 45, John D. Lewis Jr. at last became a doctor of podiatry. He had walked a few paths to get there. Using the GI Bill after his Army service during World War II, he earned a bachelor's degree in biology at what is now Hampton (Va.) University in 1951. But later in the 1950s, daughter-in-law Lisa Lewis said, he had to work the night shift "as a tow-motor operator at the Reading Terminal Market," taking trash to incinerators. Still, during those years, she said, he commuted to Manhattan, and earned a certificate in physical therapy at Columbia University in 1961.

ISSUE | HUMANITARIANISM Helping each other Greece is suffering a financial crisis, one-third of its people at risk of falling below the poverty line. Yet they have responded by organizing a social movement called the "Wall of Kindness" ("When a wall is not a divider," April 10). Citizens are providing food for the needy on racks lining busy streets. I am deeply touched by such a selfless endeavor and wish that those in our country who are proposing the erection of walls to shun others would take notice.
