OCEAN CITY, N.J. - Bob Rose  was still in junior high school when he promoted his first music show. A few hometown Bridgeton bands were looking for gigs, and a school dance needed performers. Several years later, in 1974, Rose put together his first big outdoor concert - a five act garage-band show at the now-defunct Palatine Race Track in Centerton, Cumberland County. Back then, social media didn't exist, so Rose had to rely on old-fashioned word of mouth and some concert posters.

Highland coach D.J. Gore says the "numbers don't lie" when it comes to Ocean City senior Sean Mooney. So why doesn't anybody believe them? "Unbelievable," Ocean City senior outfielder Dom Fiorentino said of his teammate's pitching statistics. "Unbelievable," echoed veteran coach Craig Mensinger about Mooney's remarkable numbers. Even Mooney seems a little dubious about his own accomplishments. "No [earned] runs? That's a little hard to believe," Mooney said. "But it feels great.

What they are: Perhaps making a meal out of a bucket of french fries isn't your idea of . . . well, a meal. But if you really like potatoes, and you're strolling down a boardwalk, and you catch a whiff of that delicious seashore-mixed-with-fried-food scent, and you're really hungry, it can make perfect sense. And that's where a place like Curly's Fries provides the perfect foil for that craving. Because at two locations on the Ocean City boardwalk, Curly's has been cutting, frying, and serving up crinkled french fries in cups, buckets, and barrels for 22 years and is considered among the iconic places on the wooden way. "Constantly customers tell me 'you're an icon' and really I can't believe it. I mean, really, a french fry icon?"

AVALON, N.J. - If anyone was wondering - maybe, say, Angelo Cataldi, famously shown no mercy in a 1999 Avalon beach-tag conflagration, or perhaps Frank Wilson, formerly of Chester County, who sued Avalon in 2001 and won $175,000, driven arguably mad after being repeatedly whistled out of the water when he tried to swim after 5 p.m., or, really, anyone who ever threw a ball close to the water or otherwise tangled with the famously vigilant Avalon Beach...

Rain put a damper Monday on Memorial Day celebrations, particularly for those wanting to spend time on the beach at the Shore. Some parades also were postponed or canceled while other observances were moved indoors, including Ocean City's annual service. Still, in other places, including the Bridesburg section of Philadelphia and Media, parades went ahead under granite skies. Rain held off - and there were event hints of the sun - for the remembrance services at the Korean War and Vietnam Veterans memorials in Philadelphia.

OCEAN CITY - Two picture perfect beach days at the New Jersey Shore this Memorial Day weekend, followed by a rainy, foggy close to the unofficial start of the summer season on Monday, drove home the point for Anna Palmieri: For beach town businesses such as hers, which depend on the brief tourist season to be in the black for the year, it's all about the weather. Palmieri has for 22 years owned Litterers, an Ocean City boardwalk institution that's been around since 1918 selling fruit juices, salads, and pizza.
