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.

For the second week in a row Salem's football team got revenge against a team that defeated the Rams last year. One week after a 24-14 win over Glassboro, Salem defeated host Gloucester, 49-0 in Thursday's West Jersey Football League Classic Division matchup. Last year, Salem lost 41-15 in the second week of the season to Glassboro and 24-20 the next week to Gloucester. The tables have turned for the Rams, who are 3-0 overall, 2-0 in the Classic and host rival Penns Grove next Saturday.

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.

Wuanyay Green has learned to make the most of his opportunities. "I don't get the ball that much," said Green, a versatile and valuable senior for the Salem football team. "I'm more of a role player. " Green carried the ball just six times on Saturday. But the 6-foot-1, 210-pound fullback reached the end zone three times to spark Salem to a 40-13 victory over Pennsville in a clash of West Jersey Football League Classic Division unbeatens. Green also registered a key interception as a linebacker, and kicked off and punted as Salem, the No. 24 team in the Inquirer Top 25, strengthened its grip on the top spot in the race for both the division title and the top seed in the South Jersey Group 1 tournament.

The Group 2 final between Buena and Salem could be called "The Perfect Championship. " Both teams will carry 10-0 records into Saturday's 1 p.m. clash at Buena. The game marks only the third time in South Jersey playoff history that two 10-0 teams have met. It is the first time two 10-0 teams from the traditional, seven-county South Jersey area have met since the Glassboro-Palmyra Group 1 final of 1975. BACKGROUND Salem is ranked No. 3 in South Jersey by The Inquirer, and Buena is ranked No. 5. Neither has been seriously challenged.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission's Atomic Safety and Licensing Board on Thursday cleared the way for the agency to issue an early site permit for PSEG Nuclear to build a new reactor adjacent to the Salem and Hope Creek nuclear plants in Salem County. The permit, which will be valid for up to 20 years, resolves a number of a number of site-related issues, including many environmental impacts. But it does not authorize any NRC-regulated construction activities. PSEG would have to apply separately for an NRC license to build and operate a specific reactor design at the site.

When former Princeton professor and Salem City native son Forman Sinnickson Acton died two years ago at age 93, he was lauded as a technology pioneer, a gifted educator who could explain what others could barely comprehend. A private man of almost rakish charm, Acton was a world traveler, a circumspect bon vivant , a scholar whose love of learning went undimmed by the years. In the life of the mind, he ranged wide and far. Acton was a contemporary of John Nash, along with some of math and engineering's other beautiful minds.

Jaleel Hatcher spent some of his summer with the Gloucester football team. "I didn't play," Hatcher said. "I just wanted to work out with them. I wanted to get more physical. " There is still lots of finesse to Hatcher's game on the basketball court. He can handle, create space, score with either hand around the rim. Hatcher was averaging 20.6 points through Wednesday for a team that had won 13 of its last 15 games. He was nearing 1,000 career points in just his second season with the Lions.

Community Health Systems Inc. has agreed to sell Memorial Hospital of Salem County to Prime Healthcare Foundation, the nonprofit arm of Prime Healthcare Services Inc. The price for the 126-bed hospital in Mannington Township was not disclosed. The deal is expected to close by June. Salem County community leaders and New Jersey politicians feared a year ago that the hospital, which Community bought in 2002 for $34 million, was on the brink of closing. The deal with Prime, which specializes in buying struggling community hospitals, means that is unlikely to happen.

Clayton's defense surrendered 366 yards to Salem. But the visiting Clippers still pulled out a 12-6 victory over the Rams. Coach Marvin Tucker had been preparing for the West Jersey League Classic Division game all week, and he knew what it would take to hand Salem its first loss on Saturday. "We did a lot of homework and we made sure we didn't make too many mistakes," Tucker said. In fact, they didn't make any. The Clayton offense didn't turn the ball over, and the defense recovered a fumble and had an interception.

There are few things more demoralizing than going through a winless season, especially in a sport such as football. A team not only endures the losses, but often takes a physical pounding. Yet when things seem at their lowest, there is always a chance for a better day, which is what senior quarterback/defensive back Shareef Jefferies and his teammates at Salem have discovered. Jefferies was a varsity starter in the secondary as a freshman for a Salem team that went 0-10. This is a proud program that produced the likes of former NFL running backs Lydell Mitchell and A.B. Brown.
