Sheri Berkery Cherry Hill Courier-Post Published 12:09 p.m. UTC Aug 8, 2018 RUNNEMEDE - Anna (pronouced Ah-nah), a gentle German shepherd, was a favorite visitor at the Barrington Senior Center, recalled Sue Sanders. Sanders of Runnemede, who organized activities at the center, would always make it a point to pet Anna during her frequent stops. Anna was a certified therapy dog but also was trained in search and rescue. It was in that role that she and her owner-handler, Sarah Atlas, were deployed to New York with New Jersey Task Force One on Sept. 11, 2001. Within months of the assignment, Anna became ill and retired from service. In 2002, she had to be put down. Sanders, an amateur artist and quilter, seized an opportunity to honor Anna when she heard a New York fabric artist was gathering 9/11 tribute quilts. "Can I do a memorial quilt about a dog?"

The Philadelphia Eagles are holding their first open-to-the-public practice tonight, which means that it’s time for the city to rally behind the team’s push for a second championship. Not that Eagles fans needed us to tell them that — they’re probably already polishing their greased pole climbing skills. But in case you’re just tuning in now, Eagles players certainly had … an eventful off-season. Here are some highlights of what everyone was up to this spring and summer. Carson Wentz and Jason Kelce got married Wentz proposed to his girlfriend, Maddie Oberg, in February after the team’s Super Bowl win. They were married earlier this summer in Bucks County and after Wentz was told that he could kiss his bride, an enthusiastic Eagles fan did the chant from his kayak on Lake Nockamixon. Kelce also got married in April — sans Mummer suit — to Kylie McDevitt. We don’t know if there were any passionate speeches at his … [Read more...] about What has Eagles nation been up to during the off-season?

Al Johnson’s Swedish Restaurant — housed in an authentic Scandinavian wood structure, complete with goats grazing on its grass roof — has drawn Door County visitors longing for pancakes and other Swedish foods for close to 70 years. Now, it’s taken the very modern step of launching a pancake mix and organic lingonberries for home cooks.The restaurant, unlike some others on the scenic peninsula, doesn’t take the winter off, although its goats hunker down at the Johnson farm a few miles from the restaurant, listening to a little National Public Radio. (It’s true — the radio station is the entertainment choice for the wintering goats, with the goat handlers alternating between the Ideas Network and classical music.)The goats may take a much-deserved winter hiatus, but not so the restaurant staff. Besides a chance to continue serving customers, the winter off-season provides extra time for the restaurant to expand its reach. This is when members of … [Read more...] about Goats and lingonberries: Al Johnson’s brings its trademarks to your home
What started out as an effort by the father of Marvin Bagley III to show support for his son threatened last week to spin into a potential NCAA issue. The father of Duke freshman forward Marvin Bagley III designed white long- and short-sleeved T-shirts with an image of his son’s screaming face and his distinctive hairstyle in royal blue printed on the front. Bagley’s father, Marvin Bagley Jr., gave some of the shirts to the Cameron Crazies before Duke’s win over Wake Forest on Jan. 13. Fans were seen wearing the T-shirts at the game. But on Jan. 14, the elder Bagley alerted people in posts on Facebook and Twitter that those shirts had been copied and were being sold online. He warned consumers about buying the T-shirts from TeeChip Pro, a website “that allows its users to design and sell their own T-shirts and other merchandise.” On that site, the same image of Bagley can be ordered on merchandise such as cell phone cases, mugs, T-shirts and hooded … [Read more...] about Could T-shirts made by the father of Duke’s Marvin Bagley turn into an NCAA issue?
