Pulte Home Corp., the nation's second-largest home builder, has bought Scarborough Corp., of Voorhees, N.J., for an undisclosed sum, sources in the building industry said yesterday. In buying Scarborough from its parent, Weyerhaeuser Real Estate, Pulte gains an instant presence in the Delaware Valley's new-home market. Scarborough has been building homes throughout New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware since 1946, and was ranked seventh in sales in the Delaware Valley in 1993, with 272 closings.

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.

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.

The 8,500 peach trees at Anderson's Rainbow Meadow Farms, the largest family-owned farm in the township, have been plucked of their fruit. Only 1,000 boxes remain to be stored and shipped. And although the final tally won't be complete until November, this year's harvest appears to have been a success, said farm owner Phil Anderson. It could have easily been a failure - all because of a road project. The township council came to the rescue last month and put a temporary halt to the project, which would have disrupted the daily route that trucks took to the farm to pick up shipments of fruit.

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.

Dejuan Martin has made quite an impact for Council Rock North's football team since he moved to Bucks County from Scarborough, Ontario, in June. Monday night at Walt Snyder Stadium, in a 56-26 nonleague romp over visiting Hatboro-Horsham, the speedster returned the opening kickoff 98 yards for a touchdown and added a 72-yard scoring reception.

Attorneys for Milton Scarborough - convicted 33 years ago in a murder case in which the four key witnesses have recanted - filed a new appeal Monday to secure a hearing to consider evidence they believe will prove his innocence. The new evidence has been precluded from consideration because Scarborough's previous appeal was not filed within 60 days after investigators discovered the information. That is the time limit set by the current state law, one of the nation's most stringent, which makes an exception only for new evidence based on DNA. Scarborough's attorneys, David Rudovsky and Leonard Sosnov, contend in their appeal to Superior Court that Scarborough's previous lawyer, Ronald C. Travis of Williamsport, "deliberately delayed filing" within the 60-day timetable.

Robert K. Scarborough, 88, who built thousands of homes in South Jersey, died of heart failure Thursday in the first home he built, a three-bedroom Cape Cod in Collingswood. In the 1950s and 1960s, Mr. Scarborough constructed single-family homes in developments including Wedgewood, Wexford Leas, Kings Croft, Tavistock, Charter Oak, Barclay Farm, and Tenby Chase. In 1969 he built the townhouse complex Tenbytowne in Delran, and in the 1970s he built apartment complexes. Mr. Scarborough, whose father was a lumber salesman, grew up in Collingswood and graduated from Collingswood High School, where he met his future wife, Olive Lafferty.

THROUGHOUT his remarkable political career, the elites regularly treated Ronald Reagan as if he were a joke. Reagan rankled the sensibilities of the polite political crowd when he fought the transfer of the Panama Canal during his 1976 campaign for president: "We bought it, we paid for it, it is sovereign U.S. territory, and we should keep it. "   That horrified the foreign-policy community - and revived the ex-governor's political...

Mika and Joe want to make you late for work. They want their smart repartee and influential guests to so engross you, the intelligent viewer, that you'll forget what time it is. Mika is Mika Brzezinski, whose new book is titled All Things at Once, a memoir of her bumpy TV career. She's been doing a sort-of book tour with her TV partner, Joe Scarborough as a way to bring the Mika-and-Joe brand to the people. They cohost Morning Joe, MSNBC's breakfast-time news show, which runs from 6 to 9. Morning Joe amounts to a cable-TV bet: that a smart show can find and keep an audience that, if relatively modest, is steady and competitive.

Eric Deggans writes for the St. Petersburg Times When I first met Joe Scarborough in 2003, he looked like a guy stuck in an ill-fitting suit. Back then, the former congressman from Pensacola, Fla., was hosting a show for MSNBC called Scarborough Country, and the channel seemed bent on turning him into the next Bill O'Reilly. These days, Scarborough is basking in success as the guy who picked up the pieces from Don Imus' career disintegration, debuting Morning Joe in May 2007 to eventually score viewership matching the shock jock's old simulcasts.

The pressure was on and Lindsay Scarborough never flinched. The Lenape senior just thrived on it. Last year, she came from nowhere to become the first Lenape runner to qualify for the state cross-country meet by finishing sixth at the South Jersey Group 4 championships. This year, she was expected to advance. While some might have found the pressure too much to handle, Scarborough used it to her advantage. "It never occurred to me that I might not make it," she said.

Ever since Rome's first emperor ordered Augustus fecit (Augustus did it) chiseled on every project started or completed during his long reign, builders and other crafts people have been finding ways to leave similar reminders of their handiwork. In the course of renovating or remodeling an older house, homeowners uncover the names of long-forgotten workers who created the moldings in a bedroom or nailed the rafters in the attic. Jim Colberg, a Society Hill physician, did much of the grunt work renovating his early 19th-century house in the 1970s.

Nearly 20 years after casinos arrived in Atlantic City, it appears as though the resort town is about to get something nongamblers can enjoy: a hockey rink. Comcast-Spectacor, in a joint venture with Scarborough Properties, has undertaken a feasibility study to build an ice-skating facility for public use adjacent to the Sandcastle Baseball Stadium in Atlantic City. The firms will have 60 days to complete their study and form an agreement to develop and operate the facility. Scarborough is a commercial real-estate developer based in Gibbsboro.
