AVALON, N.J. - If anyone was wondering - maybe, say, Angelo Cataldi, famously shown no mercy in a 1999 Avalon beach-tag conflagration, or perhaps Frank Wilson, formerly of Chester County, who sued Avalon in 2001 and won $175,000, driven arguably mad after being repeatedly whistled out of the water when he tried to swim after 5 p.m., or, really, anyone who ever threw a ball close to the water or otherwise tangled with the famously vigilant Avalon Beach...

ATLANTIC CITY - Time moves slowly for Anthony Catanoso and his brothers at the famed and historic Steel Pier, a place where all sorts of outlandish ideas eventually do come to fruition, but glacially. So here Catanoso is, his pier's signature Crazy Mouse coaster safely beyond the grasp of lenders who tried to seize it, in typically absurd Atlantic City fashion, sitting at last inside a gondola car of his boldly envisioned $14 million, 227-foot-high Observation Wheel. Alas, the rest of the wheel, fashioned in Italy and shipped earlier this year to New Jersey in 32 containers, is still in various warehouses in Pleasantville and Williamstown.

Brandon Matthews enjoyed a rewarding four years on the golf course for Temple, equaling a program record with eight individual titles, making the all-conference team every season and being named an honorable mention all-America last year. Now with a degree in adult and organizational development in his pocket, the long-hitting 21-year-old is ready to take the next steps after he spends a very busy summer competing in amateur tournaments, nationwide and locally. The first is to turn pro, the second is to go back to the PGA Tour Qualifying Tournament and gain a spot on the Web.com Tour.

The summer season got off to a radiant start at the Jersey Shore on Saturday, with sunshine and gentle breezes kissing brilliant blue skies and waters. "This weather is the three months I live for," said Erika Morris, 29, of North Jersey, who was enjoying brunch outdoors at the Bagel Time Cafe in Cape May with childhood friend Nina Huczko. But, will Mother Nature cooperate for the duration of the holiday weekend? Shore businesses - pancake houses to ice cream vendors, motel operators to maître d's - hope these three days set a positive vibe for the rest of the vacation season.

BENJAMIN Camp and Jacob Winterstein started hatching impish schemes as teens at a Quaker summer camp in New Jersey. They would unscrew enough lightbulbs to throw the entire camp into chaos for at least 20 pitch-black minutes. They would use mealtimes to try out the wackiest ways to eat, sitting cross-legged beneath the tables. For Camp, a suburban kid from King of Prussia, and Winterstein, a city kid from Mount Airy, Camp Dark Waters in Medford cultivated a mischievous creativity.

School will be over soon, so many local athletes are finalizing their summer plans. Some will take on jobs at the shore or around the neighborhood. Others will continue to compete in their sports at camps or other events. And some will travel the world to see the sights and help others in need. Here is a look at how some of the region's top athletes plan to spend their summer: Hailey Andress, Agnes Irwin junior lacrosse goalie   The 17-year-old Wallingford resident spent 16 days in Peru last summer as part of the Agnes Irwin Special Studies Program.

The national championship team in college basketball is going to get to see some of the world this summer. A source confirmed an ESPN report Thursday that Villanova will be traveling to Spain, practicing and playing in games in Madrid and Barcelona from Aug. 2 through 10. Of course, not all the players from the team that defeated North Carolina in April for the NCAA championship will be heading overseas. Ryan Arcidiacono and Daniel Ochefu are moving on, and Josh Hart has until Wednesday to decide if he is returning to the Wildcats or making himself available for the NBA draft.

Given Atlantic City's ongoing fiscal crisis and other negatives making news, some might think the town's casinos have given up on innovation and improvement. Investments in new attractions have decreased, but six of the town's eight gambling dens have added amenities as we head into the summer of 2016. Nowhere is that more evident than in the realm of dance clubs. By the middle of June, there will be two new state-of-the-art danceterias under casino roofs, Premier Nightclub at Borgata and Kiss Kiss A Go-Go at Tropicana, as well as Wav at Philly developer Bart Blatstein's ocean-straddling entertainment complex, the Playground.

Where there's smoke, there's usually fire. But it also means summer kitchens are heating up for the season's rush up and down the coast. In the case of Chesapeake & Maine (316 Rehoboth Ave., Rehoboth Beach, 302-226-3600; dogfish.com ), Dogfish Head's hot new seafood restaurant in Rehoboth Beach, there's smoke bred right into some curious raw oysters with a special tea. They're potently flavored and appropriately named "Smoke on the Water. " And they're just the latest clever draw to the beer-centric juggernaut of Sam Calagione's ever-growing Dogfish Head empire, which a couple of years ago also added an inn. With a complete menu built around some ambitious seafood inspired by both the Chesapeake Bay and the state of Maine (which inspired the brewery's name)

The beach is awesome. But there are times - before bed, first thing in the morning, after a fourth day of sun - when the kids need a break from the bucket and shovel, waves, and boogie boards. Enter the Shore's reliable stable of playgrounds. Seems every island has at least one extra-cool swing set that'll keep them thrilled for an hour or a few. Rehoboth Grove Park . Just when you think you really will reach into the backseat after another "Are we there yet?" on eternally jammed Route 1, Rehoboth's visitor center comes into view.
