The doctors and nurses, the specialists and therapists, they knew their stuff. They just didn't know Kyle. Not the way his family knows Kyle. Not the way his friends know Kyle. Not the way his former football coach at Pennsville High School knows Kyle. "Amazed, yes. Surprised, no," Pennsville coach Ryan Wood said of his reaction to the remarkable recovery made by his former star wide receiver, Kyle Pszenny, in the one year since he was struck by an automobile while riding his skateboard.

Police raided the off-campus home of three Rowan University students Friday morning, seizing marijuana and more than $1,000 in cash. Christopher Panella, 19, was charged with possession with intent to distribute, according to Glassboro police. His roommates, Kyle Seery, 20, and Michael Ninta, 20, were charged with simple drug possession. They were released pending a future court date. Rowan officials will review the charges and could take disciplinary action against the students, a university spokesman said.

The community colleges in Burlington and Gloucester Counties, having formed partnerships with nearby Rowan University, took a step Monday to further intertwine their schools. The presidents of Rowan College at Burlington County and Rowan College at Gloucester County said their schools would work with Rowan University to create bachelor's degree programs in which the first three years are offered by the community colleges. The program could begin as early as this fall. The cost of attending community college for three years is about equal to one year at Rowan University, the presidents said.

Robert Hess leaves two trash bins outside his house: one for his family and another for Rowan University students who live nearby. A few years ago, his son, then 5, was playing barefoot in the front yard when he stepped on a broken bottle, presumably left by an inconsiderate student. "I remember pulling glass out of his feet," Hess, 38, said Tuesday. His situation reflects the relatively new reality Glassboro residents face. While the borough trumpets redevelopment efforts and new attractions downtown, students are increasingly living in the town's residential areas - partly as a result of the construction.

Rowan University is purchasing a 65-acre quarry a few miles from its Glassboro campus, with plans to turn it into a full-time public fossil park, where busloads of schoolchildren could dig up vertebrae, teeth, and other remnants of prehistoric creatures. University officials announced the $1.95 million purchase Wednesday afternoon at the bottom of the vast, muddy crater in Mantua Township, Gloucester County, as Rowan students shoveled nearby in search of bones. The township has hosted community "dig days" at the site every year or so, typically drawing more than 1,000 amateur fossil-hunters at a time.

ISSUE | TERRORISM IN FRANCE Rooted in cultural bias While there is no way to accept the horror and barbarism of the Bastille Day assault in Nice, France, there is more than sufficient evidence to help us understand the conditions that nurture violence ("Attack kills 80 in France," Friday). Migration from North Africa to France was a key component of post-World War II France. The government sought workers for factories across the country. Migrant men were kept in segregated housing built by companies that enjoyed the patronage of Gaullist politicians.

As a defensive lineman, Marcus Bradshaw doesn't often hear his name announced on stadium speakers. But in Wednesday's Taliaferro Foundation All-Star Classic at Rowan University, the recent Collingswood High School graduate got his moment. With less than two minutes remaining, the scoreboard read 17-16, White team leading. The Blue team had the ball at the White 25.

It's frustrating enough for water company workers to try to find an underground pipe with only a century-old handwritten piece of paper for reference. And sometimes, that slip of paper uses nonexistent landmarks - which house is it in front of? None of these houses is yellow anymore, and the writing is faded, or sloppy, or the drawing is crudely sketched. "And then you dig there - no, it's not there. And then you dig here - it's not here," said Chris Kahn, senior geographic information systems project manager for New Jersey American Water.

In 1992, Glassboro State College became Rowan College of New Jersey following a $100 million pledge from Henry and Betty Rowan, and in 1997 it became Rowan University. "Marvin was responsible for developing a very aggressive and successful program at Rowan," said Phil Tumminia, former executive vice president for advancement at Rowan, to whom Mr. Sills reported.

Kellie Woods' daughters Hannah and Canaah are familiar with their mother's emphasis on education. "Study, study, study," is her constant mantra, they say. But soon, the girls expect the tables to turn. Woods will return to college in September after accumulating credits at, but never graduating from, four previous degree programs. She is poised to earn a bachelor's degree from Rowan University's Camden campus this fall. Hannah, 15, and Canaah, 13, of Atco, were just two of dozens of LEAP Academy University Charter School students who gathered Wednesday evening, balloons and flower bouquets in hand, to celebrate the educational achievements of their parents.
