The Latin phrase engraved in decorative medallions on the new Moorestown Library was supposed to inspire. The building's planners thought its translation was: "We confirm all things twice. " Apparently, they didn't . . . confirm all things twice, that is. The Latin words - Nos Secundus Coniecto Omnia - actually mean "we second-guess all," which is what some critics have been doing lately. Not to worry, though. Moorestown Mayor Chris Chiacchio said two medallions with the incorrect phrase would be replaced with an appropriate motto yet to be determined.

When Grace Kim became more serious about tennis in middle school, she knew she had to go into every match with intensity. So she developed a routine.

"It's a little crazy, but I always say to myself that no matter what is going to happen, I have to play like I practice.

High school athletes should never underestimate the impact they can have on youngsters. When she was younger, Moorestown senior field hockey player Rachel Stefano looked up to the players from the high school who volunteered and coached her in the recreation program. Now, no doubt, many current grade-school youngsters look up to Stefano. Stefano volunteers her time by helping coach the kids in the rec program on Sundays. "I remember when I was little, the high school girls would coach me, and they were so good and I wanted to be like them one day," Stefano said after a key 4-1 win over Northern Burlington earlier this week.
