Billy's hand in hers. It's what Jill Jones remembers best about her big brother, a half-century after they went to play outside their Vineland home - and he disappeared. On that chilly morning of Dec. 17, 1962, William Ebenezer Jones wore a blue-gray snowsuit, a matching hat, and tan high-tops with yellow laces. He had blue eyes, big ears, and a vaccination scar shaped like a giraffe on his upper left arm. He loved dogs and was three months away from his fourth birthday. When Billy didn't return to the house at 302 Taylor Ave. that he shared with his parents and two younger siblings, hundreds of police, firefighters, National Guard troops, and volunteers searched for days on foot, by boat and by air. The missing boy became a national news story and stunned the city in Cumberland County.

The principal of Sacred Heart High School in Vineland, N.J., resigned Thursday after two educators with whom he had worked in another school district filed lawsuits charging him with sexual harassment. Albert Monillas had been principal at the Catholic high school only since July. Previously, he had been superintendent of the Camden County Technical Schools district. In lawsuits filed last week, two administrators in the Camden County district alleged that Monillas harassed them with off-color comments and e-mails.

"The wizard has entered the building," someone in the crowd whispered Thursday as Ron Nametko arrived in Vineland's City Council chambers. It was unclear whether the onlooker was inspired by the appearance of the balding entrepreneur with the Merlin mustache, or if he was a true believer in Nametko's ability to pull off the audacious $350 million project he had traveled to Cumberland County to announce. Nametko, 63, hopes to create 1,000 jobs in New Jersey's most economically depressed, and largely undeveloped, county by transforming an old sandwash - where silica and other minerals were extracted - into the 288-acre Magic Sports Complex, an athletic facility, hotel-conference center, and recreation venue best described as a city within a city.

A 57-year-old Gloucester County woman on Wednesday became the latest New Jersey resident diagnosed with possible fungal meningitis from a tainted steroid medication traced to a Framingham, Mass., pharmacy.

An agency spokeswoman would not say where the woman lives. Seventeen probable cases of fungal meningitis and one confirmed case have been reported in the state, all in South Jersey.

The meningitis outbreak linked to tainted steroid shots grew to 119 cases and 11 deaths on Tuesday, and to a 10th state: New Jersey. Health officials said the patient, a 70-year-old Cumberland County man, was admitted Saturday to South Jersey Healthcare Regional Medical Center in Vineland and was being treated with antifungal medication. He had received injections of the steroid from Premier Orthopedics Surgical Associates in Vineland, a state Health Department spokeswoman said. Premier and South Jersey Healthcare's hospitals in Vineland and Elmer are the only three locations in the Philadelphia region that received lots of the contaminated steroid, federal officials said.
