A 19-year-old Moorestown High School grad stopped into the Chester Avenue 7-Eleven recently and walked out a millionaire, according to the store manager.
A 19-year-old from Moorestown had probably the luckiest day of his life recently after a scratch-off lottery ticket at 7-Eleven yielded a $1 million prize. Brian Ulvii, manager at the Chester Avenue 7-Eleven, said the young man, a recent Moorestown High School graduate, came into the store around 11 p.m. a week or two ago with a couple friends and bought a single scratch-off. When the ticket failed to produce, his friends urged him to buy a second, Ulvii said. Thankfully, he followed their advice. The second scratch-off turned out to be a winner. Needless, to say, the young man and his friends were elated. "They were dancing in the store," said Ulvii, describing the scene. "So God bless him, y'know." Ulvii, who didn't know the lucky …

The Cubby Hole is more than a coffee cafe, serving breakfast and lunch foods daily.
For the third time within the same hour, Jane Brigante rose from her seat. She scuttled around her cafe, The Cubby Hole, greeting an out-of-town couple, hunting down more fresh cheese and refreshing four coffee thermoses. She answered the phone, spoke to a Moorestown Day organizer who stopped in and slid more bagels in the pastry case. And all procured with a pleasant demeanor and winning smile, like someone who was born into a life of serving the hungry, which in some ways she was. Brigante grew up in Perkasie, PA, with her mom Nancy Webster, who had worked in the restaurant business since Brigante was a child. Brigante has a brother, Jude Webster. (For reality TV buffs: Jude Webster’s company, Solardelphia, was singled out on the now-…

They don't think the Moorestown Mall should have the sole right to sell alcohol.
The owners of East Gate Square Shopping Center have sued the township, alleging its restriction of alcohol sales to the Moorestown Mall is a violation of state law. East Gate filed the lawsuit last week, five months after voters, by a roughly 2-to-1 margin, lifted Moorestown’s centurylong ban on alcohol, and at the same time voted to restrict those sales to the Moorestown Mall. The second referendum question—written by mall owner PREIT (Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust)—approved by voters restricts the issuance of liquor licenses to full-service restaurants “located on the same tax lot as an indoor shopping mall in the SRC zoning district.” East Gate is also located in the SRC zone, right across the street from the mall, but …

Weather- and construction-permitting, Serena Thaw and Randy Blackwell will have their special day memorialized with the historic Swede Run barn as the backdrop.
Coming of age in the New Jersey Pine Barrens, Serena Thaw early on developed a fascination with ramshackle old buildings—marveling at the squat, run-down buildings seemingly plopped down in the middle of nowhere. “I saw that all the time in the Pine Barrens. All those old mill towns … and now it’s just this empty patch,” she recalled. So naturally, when a photographer friend snapped a picture of the Swede Run barn along Westfield Road, Thaw’s interest was immediately piqued. She attempted a little online research into the history of the 150-year-old structure, but turned up very little. However, she was able to discover the barn’s present-day woes and learned of the Moorestown Historical Society’s campaign to save it. It was around this …

Cindy Pierson, head of the Pompeston Creek Watershed Association, said those who live near the creek need to take extra precaution.
Not only have township officials warned those in low-lying areas to take extra precaution, but the Turtle Lady echoed those sentiments Friday. "The creek is absolutely going to flood, there's no doubt about it," said Cindy Pierson, president of the Pompeston Creek Watershed Association. The Pompeston Creek flows in Cinnaminson, Moorestown, Riverton and Delran. Pierson lives on Pompess Avenue in the Cinnaminson's East Riverton section, and even just at high tide, the creek fills up and water soaks the ground. Pierson is expecting the street to flood and for her own basement to be very, very wet. "People should tie down whatever might float away," said Pierson, who still needed to tie down her kayaks, rope off her trashcans and bring in …

Cinnaminson police said incidents could be related.
The burglaries in Cinnaminson continue as another one has been reported here this week, according to township police. Between 9 a.m. Tuesday and 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, an alleged burglary took place on the 1900 block of Jefferson Street in the Parry section of Cinnaminson, police said. The owner of the residence was away, and upon returning home, the homeowner discovered the back door was open. Entry into the home was made through an unsecured kitchen window, according to reports. So far, jewelry appears to be the only items taken from the homeowner's master bedroom. Police are continuing to investigate that and other burglaries throughout the township. Lt. Tim Young said the police department continues to think the burglaries are related—to…
