SEASIDE HEIGHTS, N.J. - A man who climbed a New Jersey roller coaster that fell into the ocean during Superstorm Sandy and who unfurled an American flag there will face a disorderly conduct charge. Christopher Angelo, 38, of Lavallette, used a canoe to reach the site Tuesday morning. After putting the flag in place, he left the coaster and hopped into a police boat. He was then handcuffed, walked through the surf and escorted to a police car on the beach in Seaside Heights. Angelo says he acted to raise awareness for Shore recovery.

Bundled and alone on Christmas night, the woman was lying in the street by the entrance to a desolate Family Dollar store parking lot in Kensington. A man smoking a cigarette from his second-floor apartment window spotted her sprawled a few feet off the curb. She looked sick or debilitated, perhaps unconscious. Out of cellphone minutes, the man, a retired taxi driver named Mike, called out to a few others on the quiet Frankford Avenue sidewalk to call 911. "She'll freeze," he shouted.

NEWTOWN, Conn. - Inside the four-bedroom Colonial set on a small rise, Nancy Lanza was already dead. But it was early yet, and it would be hours before her body was found - time enough for her son to unleash a slaughter. For now, though, all seemed idyllic in this 300-year-old town under crystalline skies. Adam Lanza - 20 years old, fascinated by computers and recalled by former classmates as painfully awkward - left the house in his mother's car and drove past fine old churches and towering trees.

INDIANAPOLIS - Indianapolis wants to become the first major city to replace its entire fleet with electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles in a move the mayor says is designed to reduce U.S. reliance on foreign-produced fuels, city officials said Wednesday. Mayor Greg Ballard signed an executive order Wednesday mandating the city to replace its current sedans with electric vehicles. The city will also work with the private sector to phase in snow plows, fire trucks and other heavy vehicles that run on compressed natural gas, and it will ask automakers to develop a plug-in hybrid police car as one doesn't yet exist.

Matt Cubbler has had a pretty exciting career as a U.S. Federal Air Marshall, Army Persian Gulf War veteran and SWAT team member. But the 41-year-old Collegeville police officer was not prepared for the call that came at the end of his overnight shift on Thursday. Cubbler just turned off his computer around 6:30 a.m. in his police car when a 911 dispatch directed him to respond to the parking lot of a TD Bank on 2nd Avenue for a woman in labor. When Cubbler arrived, the woman, who police are not identifying, was moments away from giving birth.

AS THE late-afternoon twilight descended on Castor Gardens, in Northeast Philadelphia, Lt. Thomas Macartney guided his marked police car down the alley behind the Rutland Street rowhouses near Magee Avenue, stopping at a garage with broken, wide-open doors. A few days earlier, neighbors had called 2nd District police to report raw sewage pouring out of the garage and flooding the alley. "Whether you're a renter or a homeowner," Macartney said, "you don't want to live next door to this.

VENTNOR, N.J. - They are calling it the Downbeach Lockdown. "I think it's terrible that people on the island are being held hostage," said Carla Glass, 50. "You're running out of food, running out of gas for the generators. " With roads clear and the sun out Wednesday, residents of Ventnor, Margate, and Longport who had ridden out the storm found themselves up against a surreal new challenge that began to feel almost as daunting as Sandy. It seemed that a de facto police state had descended on Absecon Island overnight, one that yielded to nobody - except some doctors, radio DJs, media, contractors, and people with friends in law enforcement who were waved past fuming residents at the Margate Bridge in Northfield.
