Crab cake magnate Bobby Chez's can't-miss-it holiday decorations stem from a lifelong love of Christmas.
It happens every night: Motorists ease off the gas, pump the brakes and stare, taking in the spectacle. The less discreet stop altogether, pulling to the side of the road to step out of their cars to snap a picture before moving on. If you’ve driven down Bridgeboro Road in Moorestown during the month of December in the last six or seven years, you’ve noticed the house—home of crab cake king Bobby Chez and his wife, Linda, who have lived on the four-acre property since having it built in 2005. That’s OK; rubberneckers are welcome. The home acts as a bright Christmas beacon, the eye inexorably drawn to its almost otherworldly glow, the byproduct of more than a million festive lights. And that’s just the outside. The sleigh loaded with gifts …

Moorestown eliminates Timber Creek with a 3-0 victory in the South Jersey Group 3 semifinals.
In 2010 and 2011 the Timber Creek Regional High School boys’ soccer team eliminated Moorestown in the Group 3 playoffs. The Quakers found revenge in a big way this season. Less than a month after Moorestown defeated Timber Creek in the Coaches Cup, the Quakers did it again—this time by way of a 3-0 victory in the NJSIAA South Jersey Group 3 semifinals.

Handlin opened the scoring two minutes in, sending a chip shot past senior goalie Trevor Tierno. The Quakers’ lead remained 1-0 until the second half when Handlin scored twice more to ice the game. The No. 4 seed Chargers were without two of their wing defenders …

If (or when) astronomers uncover the mysteries surrounding the origins of the universe, a small team of technicians and experts in Moorestown will know they played an integral part in the discovery. Just a few weeks ago, Quantum Coating Inc. completed the yearlong process of gold-coating the mirrors for NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope. Once completed, the James Webb—successor to the famed Hubble Telescope—will be the largest, most powerful telescope in the world, able to see farther into space and with greater detail than previous telescopes, primarily because of its ability to capture infrared light. On the website dedicated to the James Webb program, NASA explains the telescope will “look much closer to the beginning of time and to …
