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.

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.

Marlton jeweler Angelo Breaux got his first taste of the business half a century ago in South Philly. His grandfather Angelo Calapristi, who owned a jewelry store at 22d and Snyder, would bring Breaux along while collecting payments on credit accounts in the neighborhood. "We went door-to-door, and when people didn't have the $10 or whatever it was, they'd pinch my cheeks and feed me," Breaux, 57, recalls. "They'd give me pizzelles and biscotti, and candy. " Now a grandfather himself, Breaux is the patriarch of Family & Co. Jewelers on Route 70, where his son and two daughters work side-by-side with him in the business they all were born into.

As tears rolled down his face, a fatigues-clad Rafael Encinas placed his head in his hands and tried to compose himself while surrounded by a few hundred Marlton students decked out in red, white, and blue. Encinas was Evans Elementary's honoree at this year's Memorial Day celebration, but he said the day was not about him. "There's many people I served with who are no longer with us. They're with God," Encinas said. "This is for them. " The U.S. Air Force sergeant stationed at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst started the day thinking he'd be speaking to daughter Lucia's third-grade class.
