Joe DeCerbo, whose Atmostemp Heating & Cooling Co. installs heating and air-conditioning systems for a number of home builders, said he was intrigued rather than offended when one of his clients, Scarborough Corp. of Marlton, suggested there could be some improvement in his firm's performance. DeCerbo's company, based in West Berlin, was one of dozens of Scarborough subcontractors and suppliers recently advised that Scarborough was beginning a "total quality management" or "zero-defects" program based on the principles of W. Edwards Deming, an American whose teachings are credited with helping to make Japan a world leader in industry.

A battle between Cherry Hill developer R. Randle Scarborough and Haddonfield residents over the proposed development of a parcel of land in the Kings Highway historic district - a two-acre wooded site known as the cow pasture property - has resulted in a mediated truce between newcomer Scarborough and longtime residents. After a sometimes emotional, but civil three-hour discussion at a special Planning Board meeting Thursday evening, the board gave Scarborough the preliminary go-ahead to develop the site with five single-family houses in the $400,000 to $500,000 price range.

The video played Thursday in a somber courtroom showed a Philadelphia woman barreling toward Ophelia Leung's mother and sister near an Atlantic City resort hotel, fatally stabbing them in seconds. Leung couldn't bear to look; she just sobbed. Leung and other family members had traveled from Hong Kong to speak at the sentencing of Antoinette Pelzer, 45, convicted in killing Leung's mother, Po Lin Wan, 80, and sister, Alice Mei See Leung, 47, of Scarborough, Ontario, on May 21 in the city's tourism district.

For the first time since a new Philadelphia Flyers practice facility was proposed here, the developer and nearby residents were in agreement last night. Before a township Planning Board meeting began, developer M. Sean Scarborough decided not to go through with his plans to ask for preliminary approval of the facility, which pleased the residents. "We're working with the residents, and we're making a lot of changes," Scarborough said. "The residents wanted more time to review the plans, and that was OK with us. " While Scarborough didn't press for a vote on the issue, he did make a detailed presentation of the plans to the board.

The latest dirt making the rounds here is not about politics. This is the real thing - tons of topsoil that have been displaced during construction of the 700-unit Summerhill housing development between Creek and Hartford Roads. Specifically, the topsoil in question lies on the site of a soccer field that the developer, Scarborough Corp. of Voorhees, is building as part of its development agreement with the township. During the last several weeks, Scarborough has been using most of the soil for landscaping around the development.

Scarborough at Centennial Lakes, Medford Township, Burlington County Nestled in New Jersey's Pine Barrens is Centennial Lakes, an enclave of custom and semi-custom homes on large, densely wooded lots of an acre or more, where privacy is the watchword and individuality reigns. Here, Scarborough Corp. plans to build about a dozen homes on Sweet Gum Court, a street ending in a cul-de-sac. "This is a unique area," said Gary Schall, senior vice president of Scarborough, a division of Weyerhaeuser Co. "People want privacy, and they don't mind driving a little further for it. They also like the larger home sites.

The wait may finally be over for residents of Rolling Brook Farms, the unfinished development that has been mired in litigation for almost two years. The co-receivers who have controlled the property since last summer filed a motion in Superior Court Friday that would allow them to sell the development to Scarborough Corp. While about 39 homes in Rolling Brook Farms are occupied, seven incomplete homes and 50 vacant lots have been on hold since 1992, when the original developers, led by Kenneth McIlvaine, defaulted on a mortgage loan.

"You did good," Barbara Howard told a Scarborough Corp. executive in giving her succinct approval of the American Dream Home. Howard and her husband, Jerry, were the only Philadelphians among the eight families that Scarborough pulled together to dream up the four-bedroom, 2 1/2- bath house that the builder is pitching as the ideal home for today's typical American family. When it launched the project last October to design and build the ideal affordable home, Scarborough defined the typical middle-class American family as two working parents, aged 25 to 44, with two kids in elementary school and most employed in technical or sales jobs.

It has been nearly three years since General Electric Co. vacated its aerospace operation at the Paint Works Corporate Center here, taking away about 900 jobs and leaving behind a huge tax liability. But the 140,000-square-foot building could soon reverberate with the chatter of more than 1,000 employees, who would process computer and software phone sales for a Connecticut-based company and earn an average of $22,500 per year in the process. The mail-order company, which also employs 1,250 people at a similar "call center" in another New Jersey location, is expanding in Camden County and, pending approval of financing by state economic development agencies, could move into the empty Paint Works building by mid-August, said M. Sean Scarborough, president of the Paint Works Corporate Center.
