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.

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.

Lawyers for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Philadelphia have nearly doubled their use of the sparingly used prosecutorial discretion to close deportation cases this year, a new study shows. The trend, which grants relief from deportation to a larger pool of undocumented immigrants, won praise from some local immigration lawyers, and concern that it could end abruptly if President Obama's executive actions on immigration are nullified in the hotly contested federal court challenge playing out in Texas.

When Kimmo Timonen was working out and trying to return to the lineup after being sidelined by blood clots, he dreamed of skating onto the Wells Fargo Center ice this spring and being in the thick of a playoff race. On Wednesday, the veteran defenseman will get that chance. Timonen had hoped to do it for the Flyers. Instead, he and his Chicago Blackhawks will be facing the Orange and Black. The Flyers dealt Timonen, now 40, to Chicago last month for a second-round draft pick in June and a conditional selection that could be a second-rounder in 2016.

CALGARY - Normally, the return of yet another defenseman to the Flyers' lineup would induce a quiet groan from the stall of Carlo Colaiacovo. Just about every time one has healed up enough to get back on the ice, Colaiacovo would receive a tap on the shoulder, letting him know he's the odd man out. But when Michael Del Zotto returned last night, Colaiacovo beat the numbers game for the first time all season. In fact, he has played so well over the past 2 weeks that he changed the numbers, with Craig Berube opting to go with seven defensemen and 11 forwards last night against the Flames rather than the usual six and 12. Vinny Lecavalier sat instead as a healthy scratch.

At night, after John Gallagher prosecuted gang and drug violence, his sporadic search resumed. The assistant U.S. attorney, based in Philadelphia, scoured the Internet for hints of Val James, the first American-born black man to play in the NHL. There were no interviews, zero traces, and Gallagher suspected that James confronted cruel backlash in his attempt to crack a sport dominated by whites. A tip buried in the comments beneath video showing James in a hockey fight led Gallagher in 2012 to Great Wolf Lodge, a water park in Niagara Falls, Ontario.

About half of Pennsylvania's 67 counties have stopped honoring federal demands to detain county jail inmates beyond their eligible release dates, ending the practice of holding them solely to accommodate Immigration and Customs Enforcement investigations, according to "A Changing Landscape," the first comprehensive study of "ICE holds" in Pennsylvania. The 51-page study, released this week by the Stephen and Sandra Sheller Center for Social Justice of Temple University's Beasley School of Law, is based on a survey sent to county officials in August.

Ford, 32, of Stratford, was arrested Feb. 24 in an elaborate sting that involved marked bills, an undercover officer who posed as a non-English-speaking immigrant, cooperation from the prison's intake unit, and the takedown of Ford by a Philadelphia Police Department SWAT team.

NO ONE LANDED a knockout punch. No one stumbled badly. Thus, no one broke away from the pack. Instead, at last night's latest mayoral forum, six candidates seeking the Democratic nomination for Philadelphia mayor showed themselves to have quite similar views on a range of issues. Hosted by the Next Great City Coalition, which represents 130 community, faith, environmental, business and union organizations, the forum at the Pennsylvania Convention Center focused on the coalition's six key initiative areas: improving substandard housing, supporting small businesses, cleaning up public spaces, improving nutrition for children, creating more trails and bike lanes, and storm preparedness.

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.
