Less than a day before a heavy storm that forecasters said could cause beach erosion and flooding at the Jersey Shore this weekend, Jack Cooper and his neighbors in this tiny Cape May County coastal town said they were as ready as they could be. Some in Strathmere contend that officials in Upper Township - the mainland municipality that governs them - have placed the community of 175 year-rounders in peril by not reacting more quickly to its...

The fate of a New Jersey state trooper charged with vehicular homicide in the 2006 deaths of two Upper Township sisters was placed in the hands of a Cape May County jury yesterday following closing arguments in the seven-week-old trial. Officer Robert Higbee, 37, of Somers Point, was chasing a speeder when he ran a stop sign at a reported 65 m.p.h. and broadsided a minivan driven by Jacqueline Becker, 17, at the intersection of Stagecoach and Tuckahoe Roads in the Marmora section of Upper Township.

Nancy and David Kammerer could have chosen almost any town when they elected to move to the shore from Collingswood five years ago. But the Kammerers chose Upper Township, the northernmost part of Cape May County. "We like the schools, the low taxes and the country setting," Nancy Kammerer said. The Kammerers have plenty of company. Upper Township - just a toll bridge away from Atlantic County to the north and Ocean City to the east - is the fastest-growing municipality in Cape May County.

Eight of the 58 cars of a Conrail freight train hauling coal and fuel oil to a nearby Atlantic Electric generating plant derailed yesterday in Upper Township, Cape May County, the company said. There was no leakage, Conrail said. The freight cars had been loaded in Philadelphia and were headed east when they left the track at 2:55 p.m., said a Conrail spokesman in Philadelphia. A worker surveys the damage.

In the little barrier island town of Strathmere, the beach and boat ramp are free, and so is the parking. What this quirky and easygoing Cape May County community - think Mayberry with a splash of Margaritaville - dearly wants to be free of, however, is Upper Township. A New Jersey appellate court panel dealt yet another defeat Wednesday to supporters of the grassroots "de-annexation" effort launched in 2007. The judges affirmed previous rulings that losing Strathmere - and its $393 million in taxable real estate - would hurt Upper Township, fiscally and otherwise.

About 150 police, firefighters and others were searching last night for an 80-year-old woman who disappeared early yesterday from her home in Upper Township, Cape May County. Police said the woman, Rose S. Ernest, suffers from high blood pressure and Alzheimer's disease. She lives with her daughter. A granddaughter, Florence Watkins, 22, said her grandmother usually goes to her old home, but had not been seen there. She described Ernest as physically strong, but was concerned about her walking all day. "This is the longest she has ever been gone," Watkins said.

Five months, 52 applicants and about 15 interviews after the search began, the Haddon Township Board of Education has appointed John D. McGovern as the new superintendent of schools.

The 2,000-student district has five elementary schools and one high school, grades 7 through 12. McGovern has been an educator for 22 years.

This is a place like no other at the Jersey Shore. Its appeal may be that it's just like everywhere else used to be. It's a place that still has a collection of ramshackle summer cottages without screens in the windows, the kind of little places where the whole house seems to inhale and exhale when the ocean breezes blow the curtains in, and then back out again. About a mile-and-a-half long and two blocks wide, nestled on the same barrier island as Sea Isle City and across an inlet bridge from the southern tip of Ocean City, this is a town where the asphalt paving runs only so far down the street leading to the ocean before the sand and the beach grass take over.

When Sally Mitlas was searching for a new home, the last place she expected to find one was around the corner, in a small community in Upper Dublin Township. But there it was, a house that seemed to beckon. "I've always really wanted a cabin in the woods," says Mitlas, owner of Mitlas Productions in Jenkintown. The bandleader, who spends many weekends providing the entertainment for weddings and bar and bat mitzvahs, was seeking a quiet retreat in her daily life. In 2006, she saw a property for sale and "figured I'd have a look.

Longtime Upper Merion Township Manager Ronald G. Wagenmann announced his forthcoming retirement at Thursday night's meeting of the township Board of Supervisors. Wagenmann came to the township in 1982 after serving as assistant township manager and park recreation director in Lower Paxton Township, near Harrisburg, the township said in a news release. "It is a bittersweet moment, as the past 30 years have been profoundly satisfying and rewarding for me professionally and personally," Wagenmann said, according to the release.

OCEAN CITY, N.J. - It was 2004 when Lorraine McCarthy, a full-time resident of this Cape May County resort, sold her duplex a block from the boardwalk and decamped to the mainland. "The choice we made to move off the barrier island was the same choice that a lot of people who wanted to make some money made," said McCarthy, who lives in nearby Upper Township. "It was the best time to sell. " The Jersey Shore's real estate boom, it now seems, had a more profound effect on the region's population than many realized.

A proposal to close just 850 feet of an Upper Uwchlan Township road has created a miles-wide divide in the community. Neighbors, more than 50 of whom packed a Monday night supervisors' meeting, opposed a plan to shut the stretch of West Township Line Road from Stockton to Pennsylvania Drives so that Bentley Systems Inc., an international software company, can expand its facilities. Bentley wants to create a "corporate campus environment" with land it owns on both sides of the road, necessitating detours.

The controversy over a Delaware County plot of land coveted by sports groups for playing fields and by open-space advocates for walking trails has taken another twist: The town council is exploring whether to sell the land for a housing development. The move has raised the ire of some Upper Providence residents, who voted in 2003 to acquire open space for recreation, saw their taxes rise 29 percent, and have paid more than $1.3 million interest on a bond debt to support the referendum decision.
