The advertisement for Al's Diamond Cabaret, a strip joint on Fifth Street in Reading, trumpeted a forthcoming gig by "Olympic gymnast Stephanie Evans. " On a recent Monday, Stephanie Evans arrived. She performed at 12:20 p.m., and again at 5, 7, 9 and 11 p.m. For the next five days, the same thing. This week she'll be in Texas, doing the same thing. Her shows are - what's the best way to put this? - amazing. She swallows flaming stakes. She plays with snakes. She sits in an oversized champagne glass.

Vernon Mills says he normally does not let anyone drive his 1987 Jeep. But when John Anderson, 18, of Glassboro, N.J., began bugging him on Feb. 4, pleading to take the wheel, Mills, 17, said he reluctantly agreed. He let Anderson drive after arriving in North Philadelphia, searching for a drug dealer to make a buy. "When Anderson got in the driver's seat, he went crazy," said Assistant District Attorney Randolph Williams. Anderson ran three red lights and, at 2nd and York streets, rammed another car, killing a 3-year-old girl, the prosecutor said.

Rutledge Borough has nearly worked out a compromise with a resident who sued after the Zoning Hearing Board blocked him from building an addition to his house. Borough solicitor Barry VanRensler told the Borough Council Monday that the tentative settlement still must be approved by attorneys for the zoning board and the resident, John Anderson of 10 President Ave. Under the agreement, Anderson would be allowed to build a 16-by-20-foot addition, which VanRensler said was about 40 percent less than what Anderson originally wanted.

The 24-year-old Philadelphia man asked the court to let him become the oldest person tried in Juvenile Court. But the state Superior Court yesterday told John Anderson he had to take his medicine like a man. Anderson claimed he was entiled to the kid-glove treatment because the assault he's accused of committing occurred when he was 16. Last year, a Common Pleas Judge said Anderson had a point. The judge banned the district attorney's office from trying him in adult court for the 1985 incident.

I had to go deep into The Inquirer's archive to look up the name John C. Anderson. A rising star in Philadelphia politics, he was a first-term city councilman from Wynnefield when he died suddenly in 1983, at age 41. Anderson was gay, and his life was cut short by AIDS. But in keeping with the times, none of that was mentioned in his obituary. Just how much the world has changed since then is poignantly visible when you walk down 13th Street, in what is popularly known as the Gayborhood.

Hello there On a Sunday in 2007, Karen and friends went to their favorite Washington sports bar to watch football. Though she had stayed in D.C. to work for ABC News after graduating from Georgetown University, Blue Bell-born Karen had remained a citizen of Eagles Nation. John says it was her gorgeous red hair that drew him away from his friends and next to Karen at the bar. Her dark-green jersey quickly led to a lively Eagles-vs.-Redskins debate. That was not their only topic of conversation.

C LEARWATER, Fla. - When I'm King of the World, Chase Utley Edition . . . Hitting will not be as easy as Utley made it look Saturday in his first seven rehab at-bats. After the Phillies second baseman went 5-for-7 with a pair of homers against two Blue Jays extended-spring-training lefthanders in Dunedin, I told him, "That was one helluva endorsement for 3 months of nothing but batting practice. " "I guess," Utley said, expansively. I asked if the next test for a knee wounded by patellar tendinitis would be how it feels the next day. "One day at a time," Chase elaborated.
