About 100 Palmyra residents and officials met last night to discuss their opposition to a proposed incinerator in Pennsauken a half-mile from the border with Palmyra. The citizens suggested ways for Pennsauken and other Camden County towns to dispose of trash without building the incinerator, and they heard from Mark Lohbauer, a Pennsauken committeeman and leader of Stop the Incinerator Now, a group chiefly composed of Pennsauken residents. Many Palmyra residents opposed to the incinerator attended a regular meeting of the Pennsauken Solid Waste Management Authority last week.

The Palmyra Borough Council intends to appoint a five-member committee to study environmental concerns, especially the trash incinerators planned in Camden and Pennsauken, the new mayor announced at last night's council meeting. Mayor Robert Leather, presiding over his first Borough Council meeting, noted that the two incinerators would draw their water from the same source as Palmyra. Camden's incinerator has been approved by the state Department of Environmental Protection, Leather said, while the Pennsauken incinerator, which would serve 12 municipalities, is to be the subject of a state hearing at 1 p.m. Feb. 2 at Garden State Park race track in Cherry Hill.

After the regular-season finale had ended, after Burlington Township High had held off a furious Palmyra comeback and eked out a 73-71 Burlington County League Freedom Division victory last night, winning coach Jay Flanagan tried to sort out the game's ramifications. On one hand, Township had played sensationally in the first half, even though one starter was benched for disciplinary reasons, and finished with four players in double figures. The Falcons also hit 9 of 15 shots from three-point range.

In one of the oldest Thanksgiving Day high school football rivalries in South Jersey, more than holiday bragging rights were at stake yesterday at Burlington City. A share of the Burlco/Olympic League Freedom Division title was there for the taking, and Palmyra seized it. Down by 14 points at intermission, Palmyra tied the game in the third quarter, and quarterback Steven Morris won it, 28-21, with a touchdown pass in the final period. Palmyra, Burlington City, and Florence had been tied with 4-1 records going into yesterday's final division game of the season.

The people who live and work in the center of town say they don't know how or when Palmyra's rat problem started. Tony Ventura, the barber of Tony's Barbershop at 525 Cinnaminson Ave. for 30 years, believes it began at least 10 years ago when a plumber left junked toilets and refrigerators in a back yard in the area. "A few years ago (I) trapped a rat and brought it to borough hall," said Ventura, who rents the apartments above his shop. "That's when they (officials) started moving their tail a little bit. " Trash haulers and exterminators spent most of last weekend cleaning out a house at 515 Cinnaminson Ave. after about a year of negotiations with the owner, Julia Odor, according to Borough Solicitor Bill Wilkins.

Bordentown and Delran, teams that brought home state titles last season, were the preseason favorites in the Burlington County League Freedom Division soccer race this year. Burlington was also highly touted. Palmyra? Well, the Pals, with only five returning starters from a 9-8-2 team, figured to finish in the middle of the pack. Right near Moorestown. Yet, with the season almost two weeks old, the only two Freedom teams that own unbeaten league records are . . . Yep, Palmyra and Moorestown.

Ty Belford will never forget his first game as coach of Palmyra in 2003, although he would like to. Belford, who had a long, successful reign as coach at Willingboro, lost to Delran, 34-0, in his first game guiding the Panthers. Fast-forward to Friday, as Palmyra beat Delran, 22-6, in the first game between the two since Belford's debut. Palmyra is 3-0 for the first time since 1995. "The win over Delran is the biggest since I've been here," Belford said. "I think it shows the turnaround we've had. " Palmyra has four seniors who have seen extensive time since their freshman year: wide receiver/defensive back Quron Pratt, who already has six touchdowns; quarterback/defensive back Lyndon Alfred; center/linebacker Kevin Kelso; and running back/defensive end Deion Parham-Stokes.

TRENTON - Convicted criminals and individuals with ties to organized crime have dumped tons of contaminated soil and construction debris near residential areas and waterways in New Jersey in recent years, enabled by gaping loopholes in state regulations, investigators say.

Max Smyth might be sitting out signing day. But he believes his day is coming. Smyth, a Palmyra senior and one of the most prolific passers in South Jersey football history, doesn't expect to sign a national letter of intent on Wednesday. Even if Smyth gets a late offer from the University of Buffalo, he likely wouldn't sign until he makes an official visit this weekend. And Smyth said the most likely scenario for him is to spend a semester next fall at a prep school in North Carolina, with an eye on enrolling at a four-year school in January 2017.

In the locker room after the game, Bordentown coach John Myers dug into his pants pocket and pulled out two bracelets and an earring that belong to star senior guard Myron Gordon.

Gordon scored 26 points with six assists on Friday night, sparking undefeated Bordentown to an imposing 76-54 victory over Palmyra in a Burlington County League inter-division clash before a large crowd on the Panthers' home court.

Donovon Guess wears a jersey with no number on the front. That's fitting for a player who is something of a mystery to many South Jersey basketball fans. "It got ripped off," LEAP Academy coach Harold Warner said of the numeral on the front of Guess' jersey. Opponents "are always pulling and grabbing at him. They tore it right off. " Guess is the state's leading scorer with a 37.5-point average through Wednesday. He's generated more than 40 points in three of LEAP Academy's first four games, with 46 against both Pennsauken and Palmyra.

Keithantonio Davis and Malik Sanders are learning chemistry. But the Eastern seniors are are taking the course on the boys' basketball court, instead of the classroom. The pair showed what they've learned Tuesday in a 62-54 Olympic Conference win over visiting Washington Township. Davis scored 20 points and added seven rebounds, two assists and three steals. Sanders scored 14 points to go along with eight rebounds, five assists, and two steals. Sanders sat out the preseason and first game of the year, so it took a few games for Davis and Sanders to mesh.
