The owner of the ShopRite supermarket in Cherry Hill's Garden State Pavilion center will appeal the Township Council's vote Monday to allow gas stations in certain business zones, saying the ordinance illegally favors a proposed Costco store, his lawyer said. "We're making many legal objections to this ordinance," Stuart Platt said Tuesday, "but the primary defect is that this is illegal spot zoning" intended solely to favor Costco, a chain of members-only discount stores. Platt represents Steven Ravitz, president of Racetrack Supermarkets L.L.C., which operates the affected ShopRite near the proposed Costco.

Editor's note: In this presidential election year, Allan B. Schwartz, M.D., a professor of medicine in the Division of Nephrology & Hypertension at Drexel University College of Medicine, offers a different kind of Medical Mystery, looking at the health of U.S. presidents. Today, he starts the series with the 35th president, John F. Kennedy. John F. Kennedy's public image was that of a healthy, vital, young man, elected president at just 43 years old. But he suffered from a variety of medical problems, hidden by the Kennedy family and staff.

GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. - The 28th ShopRite LPGA Classic probably deserved better. We're not talking about Sunday's weather forecast, which prompted tournament officials to move up the final-round tee times to early morning in order to finish before the nasty stuff was projected to arrive. That meant no live coverage on the Golf Channel. Only tape-delayed instead, from Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club. Not the same. But when Mother Nature happens . . . Sometimes it's simply your turn to take a hit. The field was another matter.

GALLOWAY, N.J. - Anna Nordqvist started playing golf at home in Sweden when she was 12 years old, while Annika Sorenstam - another Swede - was well on her way toward dominating the LPGA Tour, where she finished with 72 wins, including 10 major titles. The achievements of Sorenstam, who retired in 2008, were remembered Sunday at the ShopRite LPGA Classic when Nordqvist tied her record for lowest 54-hole score and posted a 1-stroke victory in the tournament at Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club.

GALLOWAY, N.J. - Karine Icher kept making birdies in bunches Saturday at the ShopRite LPGA Classic, but she chose not to keep track of them, preferring rather to count them up as soon as her final putt hit the bottom of the cup. Once she did count them up, the score came out to a 9-under-par 62, tying the tournament course record and moving the 37-year-old citizen of France into a 1-stroke lead after two rounds of the $1.5 million event over the Bay...

GALLOWAY, N.J. – Brynn Walker is absolutely thrilled to have qualified for the ShopRite LPGA Classic, her first career event on the women's tour. But she knows that she needs to find a way to temper that excitement and stay focused when she tees off on Friday. Walker, who celebrated her 18th birthday on Wednesday and graduates from Radnor High School next Wednesday, has been seeking to find that balance since she shot a 2-under-par 69 to grab one of two available spots in the field for the event at Stockton Seaview Resort's Bay Course.

GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. - You see golfers getting hugged all the time as they celebrate moments on this green or that. This one was different. This was an international event, the Solheim Cup, where it's usually just teammates hugging teammates. This was a husband hugging his wife, and doing it in rural Germany, instead of, say, Jason Day embracing Ellie at Sawgrass. This wife, Gerina Piller, had just made a crucial putt for the United States that staved off defeat and paved the way for an epic comeback; this wife, who had come from golf's deepest shadows to bring her country glory.

GALLOWAY, N.J. - From June 3-5 on the Bay Course at Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club, Sweden's Anna Nordqvist will try to do what's never been done in the three-decade history of the ShopRite LPGA Classic, which is successfully defend her title. And in August at the Summer Olympic Games in Brazil, she'll try to do what no female golfer has even had the chance to do since 1900, which is win a medal. Nordqvist, who turns 29 next month, is one of the two women who will be representing her homeland in Rio de Janeiro.

It's OK to show up at a Philadelphia Orchestra concert this season and feel conflicted that big plans never materialized. The Stravinsky Soldier's Tale in a staged version by James Alexander, announced for the current run of concerts, was a victim of this season's budget cuts, and so the program was reworked without actors and dancers. The orchestra's current leadership feels that visuals are a good way to lure more listeners to the sound. Maybe. And though the orchestra has staged The Soldier's Tale before - in an elegant 2006 family-concert production by director Susan Fenichell - it was tantalizing to consider what Alexander (who has staged the St. Matthew Passion here)
