Mayor Kenney on Monday barred almost all cooperation between city law enforcement and federal immigration agents, reverting to a policy that made Philadelphia one of the nation's "sanctuary cities. " "The only way that people buy into [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] is when they . . . have input into the process," Kenney - who had promised to rescind his predecessor's eleventh-hour order on his first day in office - said at a signing ceremony where immigrant-rights activists cheered.

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.

"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.

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.

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.

WILDWOOD - When the boardwalk and the beach feel like hot coals underfoot, do we avoid even going for ice cream? Apparently so. Foot traffic along the boardwalk was light under the blaring afternoon sun for much of this summer season's final week, an ice cream vendor said. "Look at it, it's dead," said Danny Ferrazzano Jr., whose family runs Hershey's Ice Cream, as the thermometer threatened 94 degrees just before noon Monday. There was barely a soul on the boardwalk at 4 p.m. The beach, about a quarter-mile from the shop, was also desolate.

Three undocumented immigrants were arrested by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers in Philadelphia this month after the men were released by local authorities despite detainers that were lodged against them by the federal agency, according to a news release from ICE. "Detainers lodged with Philadelphia authorities were not honored," the release said, in part. In January, Mayor Kenney reestablished Philadelphia as a "sanctuary city," essentially prohibiting local police and prison staff from informing ICE when an undocumented prisoner is released from custody, except in cases where the person is a violent, convicted felon for whom ICE has filed a warrant.

Every day this summer, a line has spilled out of the small ice cream shop, down the front steps, and along the sidewalk on the north side of Walnut Street across from Washington Square. Saturday was no different, as dozens waited in the heat for their $7 frozen treat. Like Black Friday shoppers angling for the doors to open, they waited. Like a group of sneakerheads minutes before a big shoe drop, they waited. Like concertgoers eager to nab tickets, they waited. But here, in the 700 block of Walnut Street, they waited for a cup of Sweet Charlie's Thai rolled ice cream — Philadelphia's hottest cold thing this summer.

With the recent opening of a South Street location, Beyer decided to make house-churned ice cream. "This is South Street," he said. "It just goes here.

WHAT IT IS - Around here, it's usually called Italian ice - that sweet and cold concoction that can be as refreshing as bodysurfing in the ocean on a scorching summer day. Italian ice, sometimes just called water ice, is usually whipped into a slurry of fruit and ice, and then frozen solid. It comes in lollipop colors and flavors like lemon, watermelon, and cherry. In other parts of the country, like Hawaii and Florida, variations called shave ice and snow cones are a similar frozen dessert.

When the Flyers host Washington on Monday in a virtual win-or-forget-about-it matchup, it will be an emotional night, the team's first home game since club chairman and cofounder Ed Snider died a week ago. A tribute to Snider will be shown on the scoreboard before the game. "Tough week, obviously, for the whole organization, the whole city of Philadelphia and for the hockey team," defenseman Mark Streit said. "It's going to be very emotional before the game.
