Southern Sudan in hunger crisis NAIROBI, Kenya - More than 80 percent of people living in a conflict zone in Sudan's southern region are eating only one meal a day, compared with 10 percent one year ago, a U.S. advocacy group said Thursday, citing research collected from a region where aid groups aren't allowed to operate. The Enough Project warned that hunger is increasing to dangerous levels in the Sudanese state of South Kordofan. A study carried out by an aid group showed that girls are suffering the worst.

Between rounds of Cherry Hill East High School's victory at the Southern Regional Mock Trial Competition yesterday, Jon Sagot insisted that there was no pressure on him and his teammates to match the school's earlier success. Sure, it was only two years ago that Cherry Hill East cruised through New Jersey competition and on to Albuquerque, where it won the national mock-trial championship. Indeed, the school has a long tradition of successful mock-trial teams that have already won three state titles in New Jersey's 18-year history in the competition.

The North Penn school board is considering a proposal that would reorganize the district's current three-region election system into one in which board members would be elected at-large. Board President Patricia Q. Davis and Thomas Whalen, vice president, recommended the proposal because of the growing population disparity between the district's central region and the larger northern and southern regions, Davis said. According to school district census figures, the central region has a population of 16,556; the northern region, 35,041; the southern region, 32,202.

Members of the Gloucester County Utilities Authority said last night that they would consider building a $50 million to $200 million public sewer system in the county's southern region if municipalities there agreed to fund the project. A decision to construct a sewer plant would pave the way for development in the mostly rural southern end of the county and could determine the growth patterns for the next 25 years. In a special GCUA meeting last night, officials said they were soliciting interest and information from the communities that would benefit from the system - Greenwich, East Greenwich, Logan, Woolwich, Swedesboro, Harrison and South Harrison Townships, as well as Elk and Franklin Townships and parts of Monroe.

When Southern Regional battles host Mainland at 1 p.m. tomorrow for the South Jersey Group 4 football crown, Brent Caprio will be attempting to break another school record while lifting his team to victory. Caprio, Mainland's quarterback, needs four touchdown passes to surpass the 2006 mark of 46 career TD throws by Matt Flynn. The 6-foot-2, 217-pound signal-caller has thrown 24 touchdown passes this year, breaking Flynn's single-season record of 23. Columbia, Harvard, Princeton and Penn are among the schools trying to woo the scholar-athlete with a weighted grade point average of 4.8 However, Southern Regional will provide perhaps the biggest test of the season for Caprio and the other top-seeded Mustangs (11-0)

Atlantic City has had many talented boys' basketball teams, ones featuring future major-college players and even future NBA players. This season's Vikings lack marquee names, but they have suddenly become a cohesive unit. And unlike many of the previous Atlantic City teams, this one can call itself a sectional champion. Last night, the Vikings posted a 60-52 victory over Southern Regional in the South Jersey Group 4 final. Fourth-seeded Atlantic City (21-7) captured its first South Jersey Group 4 title since 1983 and the eighth in its history.
