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. "He's been amazing so far," Indians quarterback Brandon McIlwain said. "He's very athletic, makes big plays. It's great to have him on the team.

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.
