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.

Newton Lake "is our slice of heaven," says Melissa Martell. "We can just come down to the dock, look at the lake, and forget our troubles," the Oaklyn resident adds. "Out here," says Martell's partner, Janine Villano, "it doesn't look like South Jersey. " Soon, however, the shimmering waters of spring will give way to a warm-weather bumper crop of aquatic plants and "filamentous" algae, lending the neighborhood's beloved lake a pea soup hue. No wonder Martell and Villano have a "Save Newton Lake" banner in front of their house, which stands on a bluff overlooking the water.

When Francis House opened at St. Anthony of Padua Church in Camden in 1996, only one of its expected guests showed up. But during its peak years, 2005 to 2012, 60 people who were infected with HIV and AIDS, or their friends and family, would show up for meals and fellowship three days a week in the Francis House portion of the former parish convent. Susan Piliro was its director for 19 years, and, she said in a phone interview, "for 18 of those years Donna stood right beside me.

In 1997, the Philadelphia Press Association honored Thomas A. Bergbauer Sr. with a first place award for a column he had written as a staffer at the Camden Courier-Post. The piece dealt with the impact of the Campbell Soup Co. on life in South Jersey, "about how many tons of tomatoes" the firm was handling, "and how people were dealing with it," his wife, Doris, said. But through a nearly four-decade career at the newspaper, from which he retired in 1998, Mr. Bergbauer kept his priorities in order.
