Princess-for-the-day Brooklyn Ludwig, 9, of Fishtown, looked dazzling in sparkling silver eye shadow and powder-blue-swirled cheeks. She and her prince charming - father George Ludwig - glided around the ice at the "Royal Celebration" opening weekend at Blue Cross River Rink at Penn's Landing. Daughters and fathers were in abundance, taking advantage of the many princess perks. Little girls made tiaras and had their faces painted and dusted with glitter as they waited for the Zamboni machine to smooth the ice. The "Royal Celebration" theme included visits from skaters costumed as Disney princesses, including Ariel and Snow White.

There is magic enough in Walt Disney's latest skating extravaganza for even the most savvy of youngsters. The special effects in Walt Disney's World on Ice - Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, which will start a two-week run at the Spectrum on Monday, are sophisticated; the props and costumes, bigger than life. And even though the skaters get disappointingly little show-off time, there are flashes of Olympic quality. Yet after all these years - after the Grimms' fairy tale of the gentle princess and the Disney animated classic that sprang from it, after technological advances that leave little to the imagination - the basic story of Snow White still captivates us. As Minnie Mouse says at the end of this latest production, "Oh, Mickey, that's such a romantic story.

Question: When is home-ice advantage a disadvantage? Answer: When the circus is in town, it's early June, and you're playing the New Jersey Devils. Let's explain. The combination of hot, humid weather and the weight of elephants and assorted other circus animals trampling over a protective sheeting that covered the rink, made the Spectrum ice squishy and bouncy Saturday night, and promises to leave it in like or worse condition for tonight's Game 2 of the Eastern Conference final series.

The prosecutor said the drug called "ice," a pure crystal form of methamphetamine, was invented by the Japanese during World War II and used by kamikaze pilots who savored its day-long "high. " Last year someone tried to smuggle about 13.2 pounds of ice, worth $3 million, into Philadelphia on a passenger train, but the shipment was discovered by a federal agent in Albuquerque, N.M. It was the first, and so far the only, seizure of methamphetamine ice in the continental United States, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration said.

As he approaches, the former N.W.A. member is still as cool as ice. As part of the legendary hip-hop group, Ice Cube burst onto the national scene in the early 1990s rapping about his unique perspective on life. Now, even though he's a big-time mainstream actor, he's still not shying away from controversy. As Cube has been making the rounds promoting Barbershop: The Next Cut , he has been holding forth on everything from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's oft-repeated 1996 remark about "super predators," which he says is an offensive label, to America's current fascination with GOP front-runner Donald Trump.

On an April night in 1973, a kid from Roxborough stood in front of the Spectrum and listened to a muffled roar explode through its walls. He did not go in. Could not go in, really. Hell, they couldn't even watch it on TV. They were Roxborough kids, the sons of machinists, of factory foremen, of Marine Corps vets who returned from Korea and spent the rest of their lives cobbling together a living on the ground floor of the industrial complex that enabled such entanglements. Funny how it works: You risk your life to protect the capital, you manufacture the material to construct the building, and then you stand outside and listen to the crowd.

ISSUE | CUBA Make friends with diplomacy, not might Former Cuban President Fidel Castro's apoplectic condemnation this week of President Obama's speech to the Cuban people sounds like the response of a tired, old revolutionary afraid of maintaining his legacy. It also underscores the importance of Obama's historic two-day trip to Havana last week. Like President Richard Nixon's visit to China, it required political courage, which is something lacking in most of our representatives these days.

Stash Serafin was born in 1953, two months premature and weighing less than three pounds. His lungs had collapsed, and his chances for survival were slim. Doctors at Chestnut Hill Hospital put him in an incubator filled with pure oxygen. It saved his life, but he suffered the fate of thousands of other premature infants at the time. The oxygen burned his eyes, blinding him for life. But on a Saturday night in 1968, blindness did not stop the teenager from finding his life's passion: figure skating.

Two hours before the tipoff, Temple's students were lined up on Montgomery Avenue from 15th Street down the block all the way to Broad. They had their rollouts and fatheads and their top-grade fervor. Their number one target looked down at the ground, and kept looking down, as Villanova lined up for the national anthem right in front of the student section. No, they weren't going to faze Jalen Brunson, certainly not that woman in the second row who kept yelling "Traitor!" every time Brunson dropped a jump shot.
