Kelly Jones, 21, was arrested at South Philadelphia High School Thursday about 10:45 a.m. after a loaded gun was found in her infant's pink and white diaper bag, according to police. Jones was at the school reportedly to sign up for evening classes that adults can take to finish their high school studies, said school district spokesman Fernando Gallard. The woman was passing through the school's security system when an X-ray machine detected the hand gun, Gallard said. A school police officer confiscated the firearm and detained the woman, who was taken into custody by Philadelphia police, Gallard said.

A YOUNG MOM walked into South Philadelphia High School with her baby Thursday morning packing more than diapers and bottles in her bag - police say she also was packing heat. It was one of two incidents Thursday in which guns were brought into Philly high schools. Cops said the woman, Kelly Jones, 21, of 69th Street near Elmwood Avenue in Southwest Philadelphia, entered the school about 10:45 a.m. with her aunt and baby so she could enroll in an evening high-school-diploma program.

The caller who told police she found a newborn abandoned early Sunday outside a West Kensington warehouse is now believed to be the mother of the infant, authorities said yesterday. "Apparently, the child was born at home, and she had been overwhelmed by some stresses in the house and she didn't know what to do," Lt. Michael Boyle said. "So she fabricated this story of the foundling," he said. No charges have been filed against the 24-year-old woman, whose name was withheld by police.

Bail was set at $200,000 Friday for a woman arrested for carrying a loaded handgun into South Philadelphia High School, authorities said. Police say Kelly Jones, 21, entered the school Thursday morning accompanied by her infant and an aunt. Jones was there to enroll in an alternative diploma program. During a routine scan at the entrance, school police found a .40-caliber Smith & Wesson semiautomatic inside the infant's pink-and-white diaper bag, with eight rounds in the magazine and one in the chamber.

A LOADED handgun was found inside a second-grader's backpack at the Samuel Daroff Charter School on Thursday, the third time this year that a gun has been found in a Philly school. Authorities were called to the school, on Vine Street near 56th, in West Philadelphia, about 4 p.m. Officials told police that a 7-year-old boy was putting a folder into his backpack at the end of the day and made the surprise discovery. He immediately alerted a teacher. "We're currently investigating the specifics of how this kid came in contact with the weapon," said Lt. John Walker, of Southwest Detectives.

PHILADELPHIA High-grade stupidity Two men were arrested Thursday night for allegedly trying to sell 20 pounds of high-grade marijuana to undercover cops in the parking lot of Franklin Mills Mall, the District Attorney's Office announced Friday. Anthony DeRosa, 39, of Wilkes-Barre, and Eric Boehm, 47, of Goshen, N.Y., were nabbed about 10 p.m. for trying to sell the weed from a stash in the back of a minivan, according to the D.A.'s office. Authorities said police and agents from the D.A.'s office discovered 20 vacuum-sealed plastic bags of marijuana with a street value of about $100,000 in the back of the 2002 Chrysler minivan DeRosa and Boehm were driving.

It was a glorious Sunday afternoon in summer, the air lively with birdsong and laughter, honey sunlight landing warm upon our cheeks. Then Marilyn suggested that we take the kids for a drive. Which ruined everything. One does not do things spontaneously with children. The very phrase is an oxymoron, as in, "Let's do something 'fun' with the in-laws!" It is difficult enough simply to gather several children in the same place at the same time. After that, you must induce them to wash and dress, stop asking questions, leave your sister alone, don't you have any clean pants?

Former Philadelphia police officer Malik Snell spent nearly four hours on the witness stand yesterday denying that he used his gun and badge to rob drug dealers of their cash and their narcotics. But his effort to rebut the federal charges he is facing was undermined by his inability to identify a cell phone number he called or was called from 16 times before, during and after he allegedly robbed South Philadelphia drug kingpin Ricardo McKendrick Jr. on Dec. 14, 2007. In a devastating cross-examination, Assistant U.S. Attorney Kathy A. Stark used cell phone numbers and tower signals to systematically track Snell's whereabouts that morning.

The captivating theater piece Mama Drama deals with the highly emotional topic of motherhood. It covers its subject sensitively, truly and, if one takes into account the point of view of the authors, comprehensively. Comprehensively is qualified, because this show by Daughters Productions is written by women looking at motherhood as women. There are no men in the cast, and the men in the lives of the women presented in the show are mentioned only sparingly. Mama Drama consists of 34 vignettes that focus on mothers-to-be, mothers, daughters and grandmothers.

Being married to Jason Arnold requires being comfortable with change. Job change. The 38-year-old industrial designer from East Falls has switched jobs five times since 2000. Diversity feeds his creativity, said the man with a vast portfolio in toy work. It includes the K'Nex musical Ferris wheel, Fisher-Price's Learn Through Music touchpads, and the ultracool I Am T-Pain microphone from Jakks Pacific that transforms any user's voice into the rapper's distinctive sound. As it turns out, that creativity proved a marriage perk for wife Stephanie when she had an entrepreneurial thought a few years ago. "She said, 'Why doesn't anyone make an extra handle on a stroller?

He drove a Dodge Intrepid tricked out like a police narcotics unit undercover car, with tinted windows, lights, sirens, a police radio console, and a screen that separated the front and back seats. He had his gun. And, more important, he had his badge. Those, federal prosecutors say, were the tools of the trade for rogue Philadelphia cop Malik Snell as he targeted suspected narcotics dealers, pulled them over, and stole their cash or their drugs. Snell, who has pleaded not guilty to charges of conspiracy, robbery, and witness retaliation, is to go on trial today in U.S. District Court.
