"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. The woman is recovering at South Jersey Healthcare Regional Medical Center in Vineland, the same place where she had the medication administered July 12, according to the state health department.

TRENTON - State police officials have launched an internal probe into the way a speeding ticket was issued to a lawmaker from South Jersey. Assemblyman Nelson Albano of Vineland claims he may have been targeted as payback for health-benefit and pension reforms recently approved by the Legislature, though he acknowledges he has no proof to back up that assertion. The trooper who issued the citation claims police union leaders pressured him to make the ticket "disappear," allegations they deny.
