Nick Ellis met Joe Diaco in third grade, on a lacrosse field in West Deptford. When Ellis moved on to St. Joseph's Prep in Philadelphia for high school, Diaco went to Bishop Eustace. The schools never felt right for either player. After two seasons, Ellis wanted to play for his hometown team. He wanted to play with his best friends, the kids with whom he grew up. "I had been thinking about transferring," said Ellis, who did transfer, along with Diaco, to West Deptford last year for his junior season.

It's an odd number, befitting a brawny linebacker on the football field more than a graceful athlete in girls' lacrosse. Marie McCool doesn't look like a No. 51. Unless you know the history of that number for the Moorestown girls' lacrosse team - how it has been a tradition for that jersey to be passed down from one top player to another and how this No. 51 and that No. 51 have led the Quakers to state title after state title. But here's the thing: McCool doesn't look like the other No. 51s, either.

MOORESTOWN Faced with a revenue shortfall of $4 million, Moorestown's Board of Education adopted a preliminary budget for the 2014-15 school year Tuesday that calls for laying off about a dozen teachers, adds fees for students to participate in clubs, sports, and theater, and to park their cars, and imposes a property-tax hike. The proposed budget of $62.3 million would be $1.5 million, or 2.5 percent, larger than this year's, with contractually obligated increases in salaries and benefits a major contributor.

Ryan Caffrey hadn't had a good night's sleep in over a week. "I would wake up at 3 in the morning just thinking about this match - I couldn't wait for it," said Caffrey, a senior on the Moorestown boys' swim team. Every year of his high school swimming career, Caffrey had gotten one step closer to a state title. The Quakers lost in the sectional final when Caffrey was a freshman, made it deeper his sophomore year, and lost in last year's state championship. Sunday afternoon, the Quakers took the next logical step with a dramatic, 87-83 win over Princeton in the Public B state final at the College of New Jersey.

To the surprise of CBS Radio's engineers and lawyer, only six area residents turned out Tuesday for an informational meeting on the broadcast giant's plan to build a radio transmission tower on North Church Street in Moorestown. "Did we put the right time?" lawyer Louis D'Arminio asked one of his colleagues as they stood at 7:05 p.m. in the conference room of the Lenola Fire Hall, waiting for a crowd that never materialized. Homeowners and business owners near the company's 50,000-watt tower have complained for decades that its signal interferes with their telephones, TV, and radio reception, and even emanates from such unlikely sources as electrical outlets and switches, bathtubs, and radiators.

CINNAMINSON It was 1969, and Alma Wojcik just assumed her new split-level house on Cinnaminson's Church Road would be trouble-free. Soon after the family moved in, however, her young daughter came to her with a quizzical look. "Mommy," she said, "there's voices coming out of the radiator. " Indeed, there were. And 45 years later, Wojcik still hears phantom voices around her house, mostly on her telephone or radio. "It's not that bad now," she said last week. "Once in a blue moon.
