MAYOR NUTTER is expected to sign an executive order tomorrow that will significantly limit collaboration between Philadelphia police and federal immigration authorities. The order is expected to preclude police from honoring detainer requests by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement except in cases where a person is convicted of a first- or second-degree felony involving violence, and only when ICE secures a warrant to support the detainer. Michael Resnick, the city's director of public safety, had testified about that pending change at a City Council hearing last month.

PHILADELPHIA Philadelphia on Wednesday moved to the forefront of a national movement to protect immigrants from deportation over minor and nonviolent crimes. Amid cheers and applause by immigrant-rights groups, Mayor Nutter signed an executive order to end the city's compliance with federal agents' requests to hold arrested immigrants who otherwise would be released pending trial. Advocates at the standing-room-only ceremony at City Hall - some in tears - hailed the order as historic and "one of the most progressive anti-deportation policies" in the country.

Shayne Gostisbehere hopped over the boards and raced to the corner of the rink as the Wells Fargo Center horn sounded. The Union College defender tossed his stick, gloves, and helmet into the air after the Dutchmen knocked off Minnesota, 7-4, in the championship game of the NCAA Frozen Four. He scattered his equipment on the ice alongside the gear of his teammates, who had done the same. The Flyers prospect started his week in Philadelphia with a Geno's cheesesteak and ended it with white confetti falling from the rafters of his likely future home.

PHILADELPHIA Mayor Nutter is poised to sign an executive order largely ending a controversial agreement that allowed federal agents to detain undocumented immigrants arrested in the city on even minor offenses. City Councilman James F. Kenney, who called for a hearing on the policy, said letting U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) hold prisoners based on their immigration status has "a chilling effect on people who would think of coming here, documented or undocumented.

The exotic dancer said she fell for a man named Ice, and now she's in the cooler charged as an accomplice in a murder that Ice allegedly committed. Ice has given the cops the slip. Wanda Alamo, 19, of Penn Street near Harrison, Frankford, told Homicide Detective Walter Hoffner that Ice (she doesn't know his real name) persuaded her to lure Vincente A. "Tony" Peralda, 26, of 15th Street near Wingohocking, to her apartment on Dec. 29, so he could rob him. Assistant District Attorney Arlene Fisk said that, when Peralda arrived, Ice bound and gagged him and stole the victim's money.

The ever-genial Mitch Cohen, of Cohen Hardware in Queen Village, e-mailed me recently, reporting that many customers were asking him how to get ice melt's white residue out of their brick pavers. I don't use anything on my brick pavers, so I can't speak from experience. And when I shovel the sidewalks and the driveway, I remove snow from the lawn in a six-inch strip along both edges, so any that melts stays in the yard and doesn't flow back onto the pavement and freeze - a trick I learned growing up in New England.

ST. LOUIS - Unlacing his skates in a cubby in the visitors' locker room at Scottrade Center barely large enough to house his mammoth, 6-7 frame, Hal Gill was knocking on wood. After watching the Flyers' defensemen drop like flies last season - leaving Luke Schenn as the only healthy player to start and finish the abysmal, lockout-shortened year - Gill figured his chances to continue his 1,106-game career were as good in Philadelphia as anywhere else. "Knock on wood, we've been healthy," Gill said, just missing a crossword puzzle in his stall as he tapped the lumber.

The Flyers have eight games remaining, including Tuesday's difficult matchup in St. Louis, while New York has six games left. The Flyers play five teams in the playoff hunt; the Rangers play just two teams (Colorado and Montreal)

HARRISBURG - State lawmakers gave utilities a passing grade for their handling of the Feb. 5 ice storm that knocked out power to nearly one million households. But each company, they said, has room for improvement. In testimony before the House Consumer Affairs Committee on Thursday, executives for Peco, PPL, and First Energy said that although the ice storm was more destructive for Pennsylvania than Hurricane Sandy, its outages were resolved faster and customer satisfaction was higher.

Some of Pittsburgh's best players were missing Saturday afternoon at the Wells Fargo Center, but eight minutes into the first period, it was the Flyers who were shorthanded after defenseman Andrew MacDonald was sent to the penalty box for cross-checking. The Penguins still were "really dangerous," according to Flyers center Sean Couturier, because Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin were not among the missing, and they are "two of the best players in the league and the world. " Even though it was early in the game, this was a potential turning point in the first half of a weekend showdown between the two Pennsylvania hockey teams that love to hate each other.

PHILADELPHIA is now and always has been a city of immigrants, so it is good to see the Nutter administration pull away from a policy that allowed for harassment and deportation of immigrants, often after only minor brushes with the law. It's a major reversal for the administration, which had previously said it planned to make no major changes in its policy of the police cooperating with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, better known as...

IMMIGRANT-RIGHTS advocates packed City Council chambers yesterday during a nearly three-hour hearing to request that city leaders end all collaboration between the local police and federal immigration authorities. They want Philly police to stop honoring all detainer requests by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency. They were already preaching to the choir at the City Council Public Safety Committee hearing, moderated by committee chairman Curtis Jones Jr., who, like Council members Jim Kenney, Maria Quinones-Sanchez, Jannie Blackwell and others who were in attendance, agree with the advocates' cause.
