  The president of the Philadelphia lodge of the Fraternal Order of Police assailed the Philadelphia Daily News on Wednesday, saying there were credible allegations that two of the newspaper's reporters paid for utility bills, food, diapers, and other gifts to a woman whose story was told in their Pulitzer Prize-winning series on police misconduct. In an interview later in the day, Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles H. Ramsey raised similar criticisms of the reporters, saying that if the allegations were true, the reporters crossed an ethical line.

A LOT of prisoners write to the Daily News . Most of them ask for help with their cases. An incompetent lawyer blew the trial, they say. A cop lied on the stand. New evidence proves their innocence. They were nowhere near the crime scene. I try to read every letter, mailing back the same response: I'm sorry for your troubles, but we haven't the resources to investigate your allegations. I wish you well. But Shuja Moore's plea was different. He didn't deny that on Oct. 17, 2004, he was a 22-year-old drug dealer who brought a loaded gun into Club Deco at Front and Spring Garden streets.

TALK ABOUT turning lemons into lemonade . . . or prudishness into pasties. The Philadelphia cop who irked police brass with her side gig as a phone-sex operator has launched another side business selling lingerie and blogging as "Cutie Off Duty. " This time, though, Officer Terra Barrow says, she got her bosses' permission. The Daily News exposed Barrow's phone-sex work in a February story. For years, Barrow ran websites and phone lines appealing to lusty callers with fetishes both tame and taboo, including fetishes that would be illegal if acted upon in real life, like pedophilia, rape, incest, kidnapping and murder.

A PHILADELPHIA cop who allegedly pushed her own children to fight other kids - and who, on at least one occasion, allegedly jumped in a fight to punch a 14-year-old girl - was arrested yesterday on numerous assault and child-endangerment charges, according to the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office. Officer Tamika Gross' propensity for fighting has twice been detailed by the Daily News , once in 2009 when she got into a street fight with another woman while she was on duty and once in 2013, when she allegedly brought her 16-year-old suspended daughter back to Lincoln High School to fight a 14-year-old girl over a boy. In the latter instance, which prosecutors said was caught on cellphone video, Gross is accused of jumping into the fight when her daughter started losing and punching her daughter's rival in the eye - twice.

WHEN the Daily News profiled 17-year-old Tremaine Rogers, whose senseless slaying in Philadelphia was overshadowed last year by the verdict in the Trayvon Martin case, we wrote: "Politicians didn't take notice, no one held a rally in protest and only those who knew him will remember his name. " But now, Rogers' mentor at the Sankofa Passages Program is making sure his name will live on by presenting a graduating senior in the program today with the first ever Tremaine Rogers Award.

IMAGINE riding a roller coaster while blindfolded - chugging forward, picking up speed, not knowing what twists and turns await around the bend. That, in so many words, is what life has been like in recent years at the Daily News , the Inquirer and Philly.com. The media company has changed hands five times, survived bankruptcy and endured an ugly court battle pitting two factions of owners against one another. But now, the chaos is over, according to philanthropist H.F. "Gerry" Lenfest, who yesterday officially became the sole owner of the city's two newspapers and their websites.

LETTER WRITER Jay Meyers believes the Obama administration's release of five terror leaders from Gitmo Bay is standard operating procedure, and Republican outrage is unwarranted. Jay, like all liberal leftists, is wrong, as usual. War prisoners are only released when a war is over . . . and this war is far from over thanks to President Obama's appeasement strategy in dealing with terror-supporting nations. A war can only end when the enemy surrenders unconditionally, on its knees, or is destroyed.
