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.

On Tuesday, you could have played football on ice skates or gone cross- country skiing on the unplowed tundra that was Veterans Stadium's playing surface. Yesterday, there was a major breakthrough, following a day of plowing and ice chopping by city work crews. There was green to be seen. And yard lines. Unfortunately, plenty of ice remained visible on the artificial turf, which workers said would be softened, chopped and removed in time for the Eagles to work out inside the stadium today, as planned.

TULSA, Okla. - Temple has zero margin for error concerning the NCAA tournament after a performance Sunday in which its shooting was even colder than the brisk Oklahoma weather. The Owls' lack of proficiency from the perimeter enabled Tulsa to defeat Temple, 55-39, in an American Athletic Conference game before 5,130 at the Reynolds Center. The Owls went 0-2 on this critical two-game road trip against the AAC's top two teams, starting with a 67-58 loss Thursday at Southern Methodist.

Their coach calls them "Fire and Ice. " The Morton brothers don't think of themselves that way, except when each considers the other. "I guess in comparison to him, I'm like that," Kwame Morton said of his reputation for keeping cool as opposed to his more emotional brother, Kaleb. Kwame Morton is a 6-foot-8 senior with smooth moves and an unflappable demeanor on the court. He is "Ice," according to Delsea High School coach Tom Freeman. Kaleb Morton is a 6-5 junior with a creative knack for scoring and a raging competitive spirit.

BY THE TIME Kimmo Timonen hurried to the rink from the doctor's office, his teammates were already on the ice for practice. He didn't have much time to think - let alone scramble to throw on his equipment to join them for yesterday's morning skate, which sometimes doesn't last more than 20 minutes. When he put his head down and stepped on the ice in his gray jersey, the rest of the Flyers stopped and turned. They tapped their sticks on the ice, welcoming Timonen back to the ice for his first practice with teammates since last April.

The Flyers players tapped their sticks on the ice as a tribute Tuesday morning and Kimmo Timonen skated in a loop and raised his stick triumphantly. After nearly 10 months of uncertainty, of trying to figure out if his career was worth resuming while he took medication for blood clots, Timonen was back with his teammates at their Voorhees practice facility. For the first time since April 30, in Game 7 of the playoffs against the New York Rangers, Timonen practiced with his teammates.

Water ice isn't just a summer thing: "We do more sales in January than July," says Richard Trotter , owner of Rosati Italian Water Ice and its brick mixing-and- packaging plant at South Glenwood and East Madison Streets in Clifton Heights. Rosati sold 22 million water ice cups to schools from here to California, plus 100,000 two-quart "buckets" at groceries like Acme in 2014. Unlike the popular scooped ice sold from summer stands and trucks, which sits well in a chiller for a day but tends to harden rocklike in a dairy freezer, this packaged ice is mixed and sweetened to keep cold for about 18 months, so it can be stored with ice cream.

KIMMO TIMONEN shook his head as he unlaced his skates yesterday, still sweating after ending his longest on-ice absence since he started playing hockey at age 7 in Finland. "I saw a couple articles where people say crazy things," Timonen said. "People who don't know what they're talking about saying I'm going to bleed out on the ice if I get cut. " Words dripping with sarcasm, he added, "Good image for my family. " Timonen took the first stride toward resuming his career yesterday - on blood-thinning medications, with a blood disorder, a month shy of his 40th birthday - with one message in mind.

DOWN ON the ice, the Flyers had begun another game in a painfully familiar pattern, pucks bouncing dangerously around their own crease, players scrambling helter-skelter just to push it across their own blue line, just to buy some temporary relief from the onslaught. Simultaneous to this, and perhaps symbolically, too, an announcement was made in the press box that general manager Ron Hextall and sidelined defenseman Kimmo Timonen would hold an impromptu news conference once the period ended.

Despite repeatedly placing her on suicide watch, the York County (Pa.) Prison failed to properly monitor an Antiguan immigrant with chronic schizophrenia who managed to hang herself in her cell 15 months ago, according to federal investigators. The review - obtained last week by The Inquirer - also points to the shared responsibility of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in managing care for Tiombe Kimana Carlos. It states that just days before Carlos' death in October 2013 - and two months after the 34-year-old had made another bid to hang herself in a cell - a deputy prison warden had asked ICE to consider placing her in a psychiatric facility.

KIMMO TIMONEN has worked out almost every day since September, mostly at the Flyers' practice facility. Some days, he's played tennis locally. His possible return to the ice after being diagnosed with multiple blood clots in August took one step further yesterday, when he was fitted for a new pair of skates. Flyers general manager Ron Hextall offered no real update on Timonen yesterday, though meetings about his return continued with team brass, doctors, lawyers and league headquarters.
