Along South Street, Tom Watson was known as a popular, personable, and successful deejay. But it was his reputed success in another field - selling marijuana - that got the 36-year-old Watson killed execution-style in an ice cream parlor below his apartment. On Wednesday, four men were ordered to stand trial in Watson's May 11 slaying, after detectives read statements from three of them, telling how the plot to rob Watson of money and drugs came together and went awry. More than 20 of Watson's friends attended the preliminary hearing, but several left in tears as Assistant District Attorney Jude Conroy played security video from inside and outside the South Street Haagen-Dazs ice cream parlor.

Acel Moore, in his Feb. 19 column about the Democratic Party's Policy Committee slating of candidates for city commissioner, referred to me only as "the owner of an ice cream parlor in the Northeast. " Perhaps he was unaware that I have been very active in Democratic politics for sixteen years. My involvement includes being elected Democratic committeeman, serving on the board of Americans for Democratic Action and managing a local presidential campaign. Mr. Moore also stated that I have yet to prove that I possess "more than superficial knowledge of the job. " I hold a master's degree in American government and I have taught that subject in three area universities.

In the mood for an egg cream? It no longer means a trip to the ice cream parlor - or the Big Apple - thanks to Jeff's Amazing New York Egg Creams. Available in Regular Chocolate, Low-Calorie Chocolate, Regular Strawberry and Low-Calorie Strawberry, Jeff's Egg Creams use real milk and cream. For those who've never had one, traditional egg creams are a concoction of seltzer, chocolate syrup and milk. Entrepreneur Jeff Glotzer, who grew up in Brooklyn, was an egg cream fan in his youth, but he found himself high and dry when he moved to New Mexico to attend college.

Tony Scarduzio showed up alone behind the former Casablanca Ice Cream parlor Monday morning, the day he nearly killed his onetime friend and confidant, Joseph Bowen. Scarduzio was armed with a gun. Bowen didn't know it. Within minutes, words were exchanged, and Scarduzio fired several shots, hitting Bowen in the shoulder. A scuffle ensued, and Scarduzio fired more shots before Bowen wrenched the handgun away and threw it toward the distant dense woods. That is the picture that witnesses and forensic evidence have painted for investigators piecing together the events that minutes later ended with the shooting death of Scarduzio, a former director of the Camden Parking Authority.

Compared with the mega-malls and the burgeoning office complexes, Paul Weldon thought, his plan for commercial development was small potatoes: a family-operated ice cream parlor and bakery. But Weldon's 1-acre plot for what he called a "mom-and-pop operation" is on what has been one of West Whiteland's worst corners for development and overflowing traffic problems, Boot and Burke Roads. The Board of Supervisors approved Weldon's plan to turn a run-down home on the site into a bakery and ice cream parlor after what Weldon described later as a frustrating 10-month approval process.

Fran DiBacco has figured out what happens to people when they step into his fantasy world and they first spot the 25-foot marble soda-fountain counter, the Flexible Flyer sled, the art deco juke boxes, and the magazine-cover photos of Hopalong Cassidy, John Wayne, Mickey Mantle and Dwight D. Eisenhower. "Whatever people are thinking about before they come in, they lose it when they come in here," DiBacco said. "There are so many associations to deal with that all their other thoughts just dissipate.

Charges were upgraded to aggravated manslaughter Monday against a driver who police say was intoxicated when he struck and killed two teenage cousins last week in Cape May Court House as they walked home from an ice cream parlor. Bail for Joshua Malmgren, 30, of Lower Township, also was increased to $350,000 from $50,000 by Superior Court Judge Raymond Batten. Malmgren previously had been charged with two counts of vehicle homicide in connection with the July 31 deaths of Nioami Lazicki, 15, of the Green Creek section of Middle Township, and her 13-year-old cousin Ashley Dauber, who was visiting from Northeast Philadelphia.

Terry Glancey remembers when she used to take her two children down the street to the Hometown Video and Ice Cream Parlor to treat them to a cone and pick out a movie, then on to the playground in the next block. But Glancey does not go into the store on Collings Avenue anymore. Nor does she visit the deli next door, or the playground down the street. The reason is that the friendly neighborhood ice cream parlor that once catered to families now has bars on the windows, warning signs ("Must be 18 years of age to enter store")

One snowy afternoon last week, the cellar doors were flung open on the sidewalk on Letitia Street, the better to funnel the chill to the basement at the Franklin Fountain, the antique ice cream parlor in Old City. A passerby at the corner with Market Street may have found that an odd sight, though below ground - where steam rose from a copper pan set on a ring of blue flame - you saw the point. The sugar syrup for a batch of holiday clear toys, the hard-candy figurines that long defined Christmas morning in Philadelphia and beyond, had boiled to an impatient froth.

"DJ Fenicx" stopped by Tavern 222 on South Street on Friday night, chatting with patrons and coworkers at the bar and restaurant where he worked several nights a week as cook and deejay. It was a 45-minute pit stop about 8:30 p.m.; he was en route to a music gig at the Copabanana at 40th and Spruce Streets in West Philadelphia. He was his happy, joking self, said Edgar Goldman, 39, also a cook at Tavern 222, who in an interview Saturday remembered what turned out to be his final visit with his friend.

William A. Seegers, 106, of Malvern, a retired Linotype operator who fought in the German army during World War I, died of pneumonia July 9 at his daughter's home in Richmond, Calif. Mr. Seegers grew up in Bleicherode, Germany. In 1918, when he was 17, he was drafted into the army. He deserted because of his family's antiwar views, his daughter Virginia Harrison said, but he rejoined the army when he learned that deserters were being hanged. He was honorably discharged in April 1919.

It came in the form of Max and Mina's grandsons, Bruce and Mark Becker, two guys from Lawrence, on Long Island, with a taste for - well, this year's hot pick is babka ice cream. Other flavors of the Beckers include lox, garlic, sweet corn, gefilte fish and ketchup, along with chocolate, vanilla, and other more conventional choices at Max & Mina's ice cream parlor in Queens.

Lyrical, life-affirming, lovely. In America is a wondrously emotional film, one that sneakily dismantles your defenses and purges grief you didn't realize you had. What happens onscreen to the characters happens offscreen to the audience: Walls erected to protect vulnerable hearts are taken down in order to make a human connection. Jim Sheridan's film is about an Irish family - father, mother and two young daughters - that tells the authorities it has come to the States on holiday when it is planning to immigrate, legally or otherwise.
