At least for openers, Pennsville's football team took a much different route to the end zone, but the Eagles didn't forget how to land there. This was a team that went 10-2 last season and advanced to the South Jersey Group 1 final before falling to Glassboro. With junior Dylan Cummings returning at quarterback after throwing 35 touchdown passes last season, Eagles followers had many pass-happy thoughts. This might be a new-look Pennsville team, but one that certainly is capable of getting the job done, as evidenced by Saturday's 34-28 win over host Salem in the opening game for both West Jersey Football League Classic Division teams.

Salem made it to the NJSIAA Group 1 girls' basketball championship game last year for the first time in school history. The outcome was disappointing, however, as the Rams lost by 25 points to Bloomfield Tech. With virtually everyone back from that team, along with a couple of newcomers, coach Steve Merritt said the focus has been on getting back to the state finals, this time with a different outcome. Last night Salem, the South Jersey section champion, took the necessary step back to the state finals by defeating Central section champ South Hunterdon, 68-57, at Deptford.

Salem has not won an NJSIAA South Jersey boys' basketball title since 1986, when rookie coach Justin McCarthy directed the Rams to a 25-3 record. Based on the first six weeks of the season, that drought is expected to end. Salem, led by Derrick Parsley and A.J. Saunders, is 14-1 and will be the favorite when the South Jersey Group 1 tournament begins next month. The Rams, who were in Group 2 when they won the '86 sectional crown - two wins later, they were state champs - have two of the area's best players and are about to get even stronger.

The Salem I nuclear reactor, shut down since April 7 when it declared an emergency alert, has encountered several problems that have delayed the plant's restart, according to the plant's operator. Public Service Electric & Gas Co., the New Jersey utility that operates Salem I, said its workers last week discovered a leaky pressure-relief valve during startup, causing the first delay. After the valve was fixed, workers testing the reactor over the Memorial Day weekend discovered that an indicator gave inaccurate readings of the position of the reactor's control rods.

Thanks to a bye week and Saturday's postponement, Gloucester High's football team yesterday was playing its first game in 17 days. "We wanted to play Saturday. I love playing in the rain and mud," Gloucester defensive tackle Joe Hartzel said. "When they called it off, it made us real hungry. " Gloucester got rid of its hunger pains as its defense devoured previously undefeated Salem, 14-0, in a Tri-County Conference interdivision contest. On a crisp, windswept day, the host Lions (4-0)

In a sharp improvement over its past performance, Public Service Electric & Gas Co. has brought its Salem 1 nuclear generator back into service after an outage for maintenance and refueling that lasted only 46 days. It was the shortest downtime ever for the Newark-based utility, which cut its best previous performance by more than 50 percent. Salem 1's five previous maintenance outages lasted an average of 120 days each, according to company spokeswoman Lisa Salamon. Shortening the outage at Salem, which ended Tuesday at 6 p.m., has been a major goal of PSE&G since the utility came under severe criticism for the twin reactors' spotty performance several years ago. After equipment failures in 1983 and 1984 that shut the plant for a total of 11 months, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission fined PSE&G $850,000.

Dione Alston remembers sitting in an ice bath, day after day, as summer turned to fall. If nothing else, it offered him a chance to think. "More than anything, I would think about how badly I wanted to help my team," said Alston, a senior running back on the Salem football team. "That's the worst part of being hurt: You want to be out there so bad. But there's really nothing you can do but sit in that ice bath, work with the trainers, and wait. " Alston missed parts of four games because of a thigh contusion, as his team plodded to a 2-3 start.

Salem junior receiver/linebacker Daiquan Blake deserves some points for honesty. He gets even more for the actual points he created as the Rams scored 22 unanswered in the fourth quarter to defeat Penns Grove, 22-14, Saturday in a South Jersey Group 1 football quarterfinal. Before Blake and his teammates awoke, the fourth-seeded Rams had played a lackluster first three quarters. "It's the most lackadaisical we have been all season," said coach Dennis Thomas, a former Salem star who enjoyed a successful career at Rutgers.

Memorial Hospital of Salem County made New Jersey history when a major for-profit health-care system bought the struggling facility. The law was changed to clear the way for the 2002 purchase of the nonprofit hospital for $34 million by Community Health Systems. Lawmakers were optimistic Memorial would expand into a thriving health network in the region. But now, a dozen years later, the excitement has apparently waned and lawmakers are painting a dismal outlook for the hospital.
