When the Sweetwater Casino burned down this summer, Mullica Township residents grieved for the waterfront restaurant and the warm family feeling that had been its charm for 80 years. Generations had gathered at the Burlington County landmark for first dates, birthdays, anniversaries, wedding receptions and holiday parties. They watched sunsets at the marina and boats coming and going on the Mullica River. Sweetwater was the beating heart of the sleepy Pine Barrens town, and the location of a fund-raising regatta held each August to benefit a local child with a life-threatening disease.

Sales of Beyond Knitting Concepts' fashion merchandise total just $600. Yet Aisha Alexander, cofounder of the venture started a little more than six months ago with a knitting buddy, confidently describes herself as a successful business owner. "It's all about your state of mind," the South Philadelphia resident explained. Yuri Schneiberg sees it differently. In fact, he's staking a new business venture on a belief that he's right. Success as a small-business owner requires much more than a positive outlook, Schneiberg said - it requires an education specially designed for entrepreneurs.

What if the NFL held an owners' meeting and nobody showed? Well, almost nobody. The league kicked off its annual March shindig yesterday at the Desert Springs Marriott Resort and Spa. But more than a third of league's 32 owners were nowhere to be found. Not on the golf course. Not on the tennis courts. Not in the bar. Not in the health club. Nowhere. The reason for this unprecedented absenteeism has nothing to do with canceled flights or millionaire stomach flu and everything to do with a trial.

The National Football League's owners failed yet again to elect a new commissioner yesterday, prompting a visibly irritated Pete Rozelle to suggest that he may vacate the post. After a 10-hour meeting here, the 28 franchise owners failed to break a stalemate between supporters of two candidates, Jim Finks and Paul Tagliabue. On the fourth and final ballot of the day, Tagliabue received 16 votes and Finks 11. Al Davis of the Los Angeles Raiders, who has abstained on most previous ballots, left the meeting before the final vote.

The Pittsburgh Pirates' owners have accepted the mayor's offer of $3.5 million in Three Rivers Stadium lease concessions to help cover their financial losses this season, which are expected to be at least $20 million. Owners are still weighing mayor Tom Murphy's offer of an additional $6.4 million in financial assistance, possibly in the form of another loan, because of strings the mayor has attached. Chairman Vincent Sarni, who did not return a phone call, has notified the mayor that the owners will take the $3.5 million in lease enhancements.

Hoping to jump-start stalled labor negotiations, major league baseball owners are preparing a revised offer to present to striking players, the Dallas Morning News reported today. That offer, which will represent the first movement by management in more than four months, is expected to be made within two weeks, according to a highly placed ownership source. The new offer is expected to be a more generous version of the salary-cap system owners put on the table June 14. That one guaranteed players a 50-50 split of all revenues while abolishing salary arbitration and creating a new tier of restricted free agency.

NFL union leaders, who less than a day earlier said they were encouraged by the progress of contract talks with management, yesterday charged that the owners were stalling the discussions in an effort to test the solidarity of striking players. According to Doug Allen, assistant director of the NFL Players Association, the owners have asked that the length of the contract agreement be doubled from three to six years, among a series of other less dramatic changes proposed during the fourth day of talks.

With less than a week to complete the deal, John J. Rigas probably will learn today whether major league club owners will give him preliminary approval to buy the Pittsburgh Pirates. Rigas needs a positive vote of the 10-member major league ownership committee to begin serious negotiations with the current Pirates owners. The cable TV franchise owner already has made a preliminary bid of $80 million for the money-losing team. The ownership committee, which is expected to meet via conference call, consists of the two league presidents and representatives of eight teams.

Marge Schott might be right when she says people are trying to force her out. Only it's not someone who wants to buy the Cincinnati Reds, it's other owners and top baseball officials. Acting commissioner Bud Selig and National League president Len Coleman prefer that Schott step back from day-to-day operation of the Reds, two high-ranking baseball officials said this week, speaking on condition they not be identified. Officials can act under rules protecting the "best interests" of baseball.

WHEN DOROTHY Donnelly Caparella found out she was qualified to join the Daughters of the American Revolution, she wasn't impressed. Turns out an ancestor on her father's side of the family, Francis Stimmel, fought in the Revolutionary War, enabling Dottie to become a member of the iconic DAR, long a passionate promoter of patriotism and the American way. Dottie was not impressed. It wasn't that Dottie lacked interest in her family history. She was a devoted family matriarch who always put her family's needs ahead of her own. But the DAR didn't interest her. Dorothy L. Donnelly Caparella, one-time part owner of a hearing-aid store in Southampton, a dedicated traveler who was frequently on the go, often looking for a place where she could get a good meal, a loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, died Friday.

The owner of a pop-up beer garden in Point Breeze won a court order against the city Friday when a judge ruled that he could reopen while fighting a zoning dispute that shut down the venue the day before. John Longacre said he would reopen his nascent beer garden on Saturday. "I couldn't believe it," Longacre said minutes after emerging from a 31/2-hour hearing before Municipal Court Judge Nina Wright Padilla that began at 3 p.m. "It's a big, big deal. " Longacre said Padilla heard testimony before lifting a cease-and-desist order issued by the Department of Licenses and Inspections against the beer garden, which debuted in May on a long-vacant lot on Point Breeze Avenue near 22d and Tasker Streets.

A pop-up beer garden in Philadelphia's Point Breeze neighborhood was shut down Thursday after city inspectors said it violated the zoning code. The cease-and-desist order from the Department of Licenses and Inspections enraged property owner John Longacre and left Councilman Kenyatta Johnson wondering what could be done to reopen what one aide said was a well-received newcomer on a long-vacant lot at 22d and Tasker Streets. The lot is zoned residential. L&I said a seasonal outpost for serving beer, an increasingly popular concept across the city, was prohibited under such zoning.

For Charles and Mary Bangle, the pizza business meant big dough. The husband-and-wife owners of the Manco & Manco Pizza restaurants, landmarks on the Ocean City, N.J., boardwalk for decades, traveled the country, bought custom clothing, and often had wine shipped from California. According to prosecutors, that lifestyle was funded by hundreds of thousands of dollars skimmed from their own cash registers. On Thursday, Charles Bangle, 55, pleaded guilty to tax evasion in federal court in Camden.

I'M NOT A dog person. They're dirty. They smell. I hate when they jump on me. If I smile, I'm faking it. I cringe inside when dogs use my yard as a toilet - even if their owners clean up after them. I'd rather not eat in the same room as a furry friend, especially if they are under the table begging for scraps. They ruin my appetite. So, believe me, the last thing I want to write about is someone's dog. But I met Jessica Rennard backstage earlier this month at a fashion-show fundraiser for the Career Wardrobe and was struck by the randomness of what had happened to her puppy.

AFTER THE CRASH, the truck's driver seemed sincere, at least initially. He jumped out of the cab, looked over the cyclist lying broken on a North Philly street and told a witness that he would be right back, that he was only going to move his car out of traffic. But that driver, who police haven't identified, bolted after parking the 1989 Ford F-150 pickup truck he had been driving, leaving behind the man he had run down just moments earlier. The victim, identified as Julio Torres, 55, was in critical condition Tuesday night at Temple University Hospital, said Capt.

THE ELDERLY women who sat on their front porches on a hot June afternoon while children played in the pool at the Cecil B. Moore Recreation Center across the street found the case of Antoine Turay unbelievable. Turay, who runs Turay Memorial Funeral Chapel, on 22nd Street near Sergeant, in North Philadelphia, had just pleaded guilty June 11 to stealing more than $300,000 - and a house - from one of their neighbors, a 91-year-old woman. "Where's he at now?" asked Cynthia McCoy, 86. "Is he in jail?"

Irma Lopez Salter was smiling Tuesday after a Philadelphia City Council committee decided to let a $325 million renovation of the Gallery go forward. It's not that she owns a piece of the project. She was pleased because, as part of the deal for the remake, she and other kiosk vendors were given first dibs on spots in the new mall, to be called the Fashion Outlets of Philadelphia. Lopez ran Perfect Foto at the Gallery and was among the kiosk operators booted in late 2014 and early 2015 as the mall was drained of stores.

When Scott Carlbon moved to Burlington City 15 years ago to open an antiques shop, he bought his first set of home furniture - a sofa, a mattress, and a reclining chair - from Francis and Carolann Imhoff's store across the street from his own store. Since then, the Imhoffs have become friends, he said. "Fran," Carlbon says, is the first to rush over to help unload a shipment at his Antique and Arts Emporium. "They're the kind and generous small-business people that are kind of lost today," Carlbon said last week, lamenting the Imhoffs' decision to retire.
