Heading to the Shore over an expressway isn't for everyone. Some folks prefer the backroads. But for the experienced trekker, writing down the names of the roads can be tricky. Notes can include phrases such as "past the car dealerships," "that farm stand with the peaches," "that graveyard" and "666. " Jersey Shore backroads can be hard to pin down. Except for adventurous drivers wandering off the Atlantic City Expressway or Garden State Parkway's standard routes with a map or GPS in hand, most Shore routes were handed down by parents and grandparents.

The Planning Board has voted unanimously to recommend declaring the borough's portion of the White Horse Pike a redevelopment area, but members expressed concern that Haddon Township, which governs the north side of the pike from Clinton Avenue to Cuthbert Boulevard, has not followed suit, potentially jeopardizing a uniform redevelopment of the commercial artery. If Oaklyn can secure state and federal redevelopment financing, motorists driving down the pike could witness a surreal scene: new shrubs, planters and brick pavers on one side, cracked sidewalks and treeless right-of-ways on the other.

Though Sabatino J. D'Auria did not see combat during his military service in Korea in the 1950s, his experience there wasn't painless. As an Air Force munitions specialist, he was sometimes sent as an armed guard on railroad shipments of supplies. Often on nighttime trips on flatbed railcars, wife Lillian said, "it was lonely and scary. You never knew where you were" until the train stopped. "He spent two winters there," she said. "It was so cold. " On Thursday, June 18, Mr. D'Auria, 83, known as "Sam," who retired this month from the Gloucester County Institute of Technology, where he had taught classes in heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning since the late 1970s, died of cancer at his Voorhees home.
