Gary and Patricia Marino of Franklin Township have seemingly developed a "dive-in" approach to business - perhaps fitting for a couple who also go by Mr. and Mrs. Penguin. With no relevant experience, the Marinos decided on a whim in the spring of 1995 to buy a struggling roadside ice cream stand on Route 40 in their rural hometown. They renamed it the Purple Penguin and added a full menu, including cheesesteaks and hot dogs. People "thought we were nuts," Patricia Marino, 61, said this week inside the Gloucester County shop.

GALLOWAY, N.J. - Anna Nordqvist tapped in her last shot Sunday for the championship of the ShopRite LPGA Classic, walked into a celebratory spray of champagne delivered by fellow players, and gave a big hug to her mother, who has been visiting from Sweden. She certainly didn't look like a player who had thought about doing something else besides playing professional golf just a couple of years ago. Nordqvist, 27, made her big move late in the final round. She sank birdie putts at the 16th and 17th holes of the Bay Course at Stockton Seaview Golf Club and Spa to take the lead for good and picked up her first LPGA Tour title of the year, a 1-stroke victory over Christel Boeljon.

GALLOWAY, N.J. - Anna Nordqvist broke out a calm and collected fist pump after a tap-in for bogey on the 501-yard 18th hole. The modest celebration yesterday would not have led the casual observer to believe that she had won a golf tournament. But with the tap-in, she clinched the 2015 ShopRite LPGA Classic title, her fifth on the LPGA Tour and her first since March 2014. Her overall score of 8-under 205 bested the field by one stroke in the three-round event at Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club.

GALLOWAY, N.J. - A couple of forces were at work trying to keep the LPGA's best players from truly enjoying the second round of the ShopRite LPGA Classic on Saturday. The first was the breeze that freshened just as some of the opening-day leaders started in the afternoon, making club selection a true guessing game. If that wasn't difficult enough, the greens at the Bay Course of the Stockton Seaview Golf Club and Resort had enough bumps to throw even the purest-stroked putt off line.

GALLOWAY, N.J. - The debut of 17-year-old Brooke Henderson at the ShopRite LPGA Classic was a roller-coaster ride of birdies and bogeys, and ended with her within only 2 shots of Morgan Pressel's first-round lead. Playing on a sponsor's exemption, Henderson carded eight birdies, five bogeys and five pars in her round of 68 that left her in a group of nine players at that number. Henderson, who started on the back nine, was 2-over for her first six holes before six birdies on her next eight.

A lot of the merchandise on the Wildwood boardwalk has a bit of an edge to it. Cheesy T-shirts advertise sex, drugs, even rock and roll (if that's still considered edgy). Stores offer tattoos, temporary or permanent. Other shops sell pipes and bongs "for tobacco use only. " Over the last year or two, however, the boardwalk has added another type of product among the oceanfront shops. The signs advertise vaping, and the stores sell electronic cigarettes. E-cigarettes come in various forms but all work on the same general principle: Liquid nicotine at one end is heated into vapor that is is inhaled through a mouthpiece.

GALLOWAY, N.J. - The ShopRite LPGA Classic, which begins Friday, is being held for the 27th time. Juli Inkster won the first one and the third one, in 1986 and 1988, when it was known as the Atlantic City Classic, and is here preparing once again less than a month shy of her 55th birthday. She has other responsibilities these days, both as the 2015 captain of the U.S. Solheim Cup team, and as a television commentator for Fox, which will televise the U.S. Open and other USGA national championships this year.

GALLOWAY, N.J. - LPGA Hall of Famer Juli Inkster will turn 55 next month. So what was she doing tying for seventh in her most recent start, at last month's Volunteers of America North Texas Shootout, a week after coming in 15th at the Swinging Skirts Classic in San Francisco, her best finish since a 15th at last June's U.S. Open? Isn't women's golf mostly supposed to belong to teenagers these days? So maybe there's a time warp going on. "I love competing," Inkster said at Stockton Seaview Hotel & Golf Club, where the 54-hole LPGA ShopRite Classic tees off tomorrow on the Bay Course.
