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.
