"Let these babies cool," I warn as a plate of shrimp Carambola lands before me, fresh from the fryer and deceptively hot. But my fingers are magnetized to these curious creations, these long and crispy cocoons of shredded phyllo dough with shrimp tails poking out the ends. My fingers gently prune the wildly wound nests to more edible proportions, and then they get a hot and sticky dunk, dipped in the sweetened spice of homemade marmalade and Dijon mustard. As I bite into this brittle tangle, it shatters in a phyllo explosion, falling to the plate, sticking to my lips, flying in every direction.

Despite protests from residents, the Township Committee last night took an early but important step in approving a project that would change the area's bucolic landscape. The committee voted unanimously to create a zoning district that would allow a strip mall and drive-through restaurant on a site near the Bridgeton Pike, where a developer has purchased the option to buy land. Many of those who spoke at last night's packed meeting were especially wary of lifting Harrison's longtime prohibition of drive-through restaurants, which has kept fast food out of the area.

In one strip mall after another along the Burlington County section of Route 130, motorists are pulling into parking lots to find pizza places and furniture stores shuttered, with lease signs posted on their windows. "The store next door has been vacant for three years," said Frank Vakil, owner of Harker's Flowers in Cinnaminson. "We used to have 700 to 800 cars coming into the center a day. Now maybe it's 200. " The entire retail sector has struggled since the recession began in 2007.

The once-popular Marketplace Mall on Chews Landing Road in Laurel Springs, which closed in the fall when the last indoor merchant moved out, will reopen at the end of the year as a remodeled strip mall. The interior section was boarded up in October when Hit or Miss left after 10 years. Two stores with outside entrances - a pizza parlor and a pharmacy - and the 32,000-square-foot Thriftway supermarket remain. The same company that made the mall successful in the early 1980s as a discount retail center has repurchased the 100,000-square-foot facility and is vowing to spend "millions of dollars" on renovations and improvements.

For Kishan Singh, life began in 1981, when he arrived in the United States from northern India and worked at Windows of the World, on the 107th floor of Manhattan's World Trade Center. As a busboy he was only on the first level of his chosen profession, but he liked the view. And it was apparent his supervisors liked what they saw, because it wasn't long before Singh became a waiter. And when he left Windows, in 1988, he had been promoted to captain. "I liked the business very much and then opened my first restaurant, in Albany.

The region's weather woes continued yesterday, as a pounding rainstorm fell on a week-old blanket of wet snow to cause widespread flooding and a commercial building collapse in Montgomery County. No one was injured in the 1:49 p.m. accident, in which large roof sections of an Abington strip mall buckled under the weight of rain and from snow left by last week's historic storm. The collapse was limited to sections of Abington Plaza, at 1456 Old York Rd., that had been vacant for several months, including a former West Coast Video, said Ed Momorella, emergency management administrator for Abington Township.

Remember when we were fighting them over there so we wouldn't have to here? Increasing domestic terrorism by so-called lone wolves has blown that strategy out of the water and weakened the rationale for further U.S. military intervention in the Middle East. A domestic terrorist attack occurred or was foiled every 34 days in the United States on average between April 2009 and February 2015, according to a study by the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks violent groups. Three-quarters of the more than 60 incidents during that period were planned or carried out by a lone wolf.

Pennsylvania is seeking $2.4 million in civil penalties against Sunoco Logistics Partners for alleged Clean Streams Law violations related to a November 2008 spill of 12,000 gallons of gasoline near Pittsburgh. The spill in Murrysville, Westmoreland County, killed virtually all the aquatic life in a three-mile stretch of Turtle Creek, according to a complaint filed Friday by the Department of Environmental Protection with the Environmental Hearing Board. The DEP said a valve in the company's eight-inch pipeline ruptured shortly after a maintenance crew worked at the site, near a strip mall on Route 22. The rupture unleashed a 20- to 30-foot geyser of gasoline.

For years, J&S Seafood, a fast-food place that sells the likes of fried shrimp, whitefish, and mozzarella sticks and which stays open after the bars close, has been a magnet for Chester's young night owls. And, according to police and people in the neighborhood, it has been a magnet for trouble. They say it is a big reason that the intersection of Ninth and Kerlin Streets in Delaware County's largest city has become a Hell's Corner - one of the region's most violent.
