Sangria, from Erdenheim Stable, has never raced in this country, but she is the probable favorite among nine fillies and mares tonight in the $50,000 Vineland Handicap on the turf at Garden State Park. Sangria won the Group 3 Prix de Psyche last summer at Deauville, France, and made her first North American start in the prestigious E.P. Taylor at Woodbine in Canada last October. A well-respected 3-1 in that field, she made a brief rally before fading to a seventh-place finish.

Ed Belfi said that one of his first tasks as Vineland's new head football coach would be to create even more interest in the program. Belfi was appointed last week to replace Bill Magee, who resigned shortly after the 2000 season. After going 4-6 last season, Vineland was hit hard by graduation. "We only have five players with varsity experience returning," Belfi said yesterday. "I have to hit the hallways and generate enthusiasm for the program and make it fun. " A 1977 graduate of Buena, where he was a standout linebacker, Belfi had served as defensive coordinator for Vineland since 1994.

WHAT IT IS - Long before superhighways like the Atlantic City Expressway and the Garden State Parkway, when drivers heading to the Jersey Shore had to take slower, less-direct roads that wound through farm fields and small towns, Delsea Drive (Route 47) was a favorite route. So named because it runs between the vicinity of the DELaware River in Brooklawn, Camden County, to the edge of the SEA in Wildwood, Cape May County, Delsea Drive also afforded those Shore-bound drivers a few places to stop for refueling and stocking up on food to take to the beach.

VINELAND, N.J. - The timer is ticking for the Progresso soup plant. Members of United Food and Commercial Workers Local 152 met Friday with the labor relations team of General Mills over the $20.4 million in cuts that the company is seeking to keep the Vineland Progresso plant open. Last week, Brian String, president of Local 152, said his team had come up with about $4 million in cuts, and was optimistic that further cost savings could be found.

VINELAND, N.J. - In this very poor, rural pocket of South Jersey, the locals are grateful for what they have, especially jobs. But the lives of 370 families were tossed off-balance when the parent company of the Italian-foods brand Progresso - whose manufacturing plant has been a fixture at 500 W. Elmer Rd. since 1970 - announced its "tentative decision" to close the plant by early 2018. General Mills, the Minneapolis-based food giant that has operated the plant since 2001, delivered the news - which one union leader called a "kick to the stomach" - July 21. It came just two months after United Food & Commercial Workers Local 152 ratified a four-year contract that all but ensured job security at the Vineland plant during its term.

OCEAN CITY, N.J. - The Miss New Jersey pageant is like a mini-me, the kid sister from another boardwalk allowed to tag along with Miss America in September. State pageants, the qualifiers for Miss America, bring pageantry back to their basics, a journey deep to the heart of a Miss Seashore Line labyrinth. Here you really see how the whole enterprise is rooted not in cookie-cutter perfection but in something more akin to, hey, why not me? But also, why? A Miss New Jersey has not been crowned Miss America on pageant night since 1937.

The Vineland police officers who released a K9 onto a man who later died were justified in their use of force, authorities said Friday, citing a grand jury's decision not to indict the officers. The ruling came more than a year after Phillip White's scuffle with police on a residential street on March 31, 2015, and for the first time revealed what authorities determined to be the cause of death: Phencyclidine, or PCP, intoxication, which they said sent White into cardiac arrest. The Cumberland County Prosecutor's Office, which released the findings in a statement, said the police dog did not cause any "penetrating wounds" and could not have caused White's death.
