"Also, we are getting some goals off set plays. " Junior Jesse Hamilton has been the catalyst with four goals in the first two games.

As soon as lunch ended, a little girl moved quickly to gather up a bag of leftovers: peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, oranges, and juice boxes. Her stash, she stated matter of factly, was for later, when summer camp at Camden Community Charter School in North Camden was over for the day. "This is so I don't starve when I get home," the 7-year-old with big, soulful brown eyes told a counselor. "Sometimes my mom runs out of food. " She is among thousands of children who participate in a summer meals program, run by the Food Bank of South Jersey, that provides breakfast, lunch, or snacks at schools, summer programs, parks, swimming pools, or anywhere children hang out during the summer.

"That was Jess," West Deptford coach Mandy Schramm said of Linquist's final swing as a high school player. "That was her, right there. " Linquist is the Inquirer's South Jersey player of the year in softball after leading West Deptford to its first sectional title in 20 years.

Orlando police identified the gunman who killed South Jersey singer Christina Grimmie as Kevin James Loibl, 27, of St. Petersburg, saying he heavily armed himself and specifically came to her concert to attack the popular star of "The Voice. " The shooter, who apparently did not know the entertainer, traveled more than 100 miles from his home to Grimmie's concert venue by car, packing two small-caliber handguns, two loaded magazines and a large hunting knife, police said. About 30 minutes after the concert ended, he walked toward the 22-year-old singer as she signed autographs, firing several shots at her from one of his guns and triggering chaos among dozens of fans still at The Plaza Live.

The New Jersey Supreme Court has let stand a lower-court ruling that a Gloucester County family must pay part of a $4 million fine and a $2 million environmental cleanup cost after the family acquired a contaminated thermometer plant and converted it into a children's day-care center without removing the building's toxic mercury vapors. The decision last week not to hear the appeal caps a 10-year legal battle that started soon after the state Department of Environmental Protection discovered the Kiddie Kollege day-care center had opened in 2004 in an abandoned factory in Franklinville.

Which political connection is worse - Gov. Christie, whose job performance rating in New Jersey is at an all-time low in a new poll, or Tom Morello, former guitarist for Rage Against the Machine, who organized a concert nearly two decades ago to raise legal defense funds for convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal? Those are among the issues voters are being asked to ponder in the race for a congressional seat in South Jersey's Third District heats up ahead of the June 7 primary. Republican U.S. Rep.
