Philadelphia Police are searching for a suspect caught on surveillance camera during two violent West Philadelphia nail salon stick-ups. A store surveillance camera appears to have caught a clean shot of the suspect in the two hold-ups, said Lt. John Walker, of Southwest Detectives. Around 11 a.m., Thursday, the gunmen burst into the Myly Nail Salon on the 6200 block Lansdowne Avenue, and put a small black handgun to the store owner as she was working on a customer. The gunman told the woman "to shut up unless you want to die," Walker said, before fleeing with $100.

A 30-year-old Philadelphia woman was found dead Monday inside the nail salon she owned in Upper Southampton, and, based on the autopsy, Bucks County police were pursuing the case as a homicide. Annie Huynh was found locked inside a bathroom of Kim's Nails, her salon on Second Street Pike in the Pike Plaza Shopping Center. Beyond that, the authorities wouldn't say a lot, including whether money was taken from the business. Bucks County District Attorney David W. Heckler and Upper Southampton Police Chief Ron MacPherson refused to discuss the cause of death.

In what appears to be a family affair at its worst, a man used a young girl to steal a purse containing a cell phone, credit cards and more than $1,000 in cash from a South Philly nail salon. Police are seeking information to track down the family in the caper captured on surveillance footage aired Monday by television station 6ABC. The video shows a man entering the VWC nail salon, on Penrose Avenue near Moyamensing, at 1 p.m. Sunday. Police said he asked the owner of the nail salon a few questions and, moments later, two women, a young girl sporting a pink skirt and a small child strolled into the nail salon.

DNA tests confirmed yesterday that the charred remains found last week in a metal drum in West Philadelphia were those of a 15-year-old Delaware County girl who had been missing for nearly a month. Deanna Wright-McIntosh, a high school sophomore from Yeadon, had been missing since Dec. 3. She was last seen headed to a nail salon near her home. The remains were found Thursday in a 55-gallon drum at 63d and Arch Streets near Cobbs Creek. Police say Wright-McIntosh, an aspiring dancer and model and the daughter of a retired FBI agent, was abducted from Yeadon and killed elsewhere before her burned remains were left in West Philadelphia.

In second grade, Josephine Nguyen discovered she loved a game in school - First in Math. She could play it at home, on a computer. But her parents, Vietnamese refugees, didn't own one. So her father, Joseph Nguyen, who works in a nail salon, took her first to the Lawncrest branch of the Free Library. Computer time is limited. After an hour there, he took his daughter to the Cottman Avenue branch. Then the Castor branch. Every day, they went from library to library. First in Math, founded by inventor Robert Sun, is now in 5,000 schools across the nation, played by 1.5 million students, and more than 110,000 students in 320 schools in the Philadelphia area.

Hello there! It was early afternoon the first day at the Sea Isle City house that 10 friends had rented for summer 2009, and Steve already had his toes in the sand. Laura arrived after work and knew the handsome man sitting on a beach towel had to be Steve; he was the only housemate she hadn't met. They introduced themselves and shook hands. Steve was drawn to her beautiful smile, and that made him nervous. "I thought she was out of my league," the Ridley native said.

FOR ALMOST five years, Algernong Allen III worked hard to transform Elena's Soul Lounge into a place that embraced the changing Cedar Park community in West Philadelphia. The diversity was clear in the eclectic mix of artists who performed at the Baltimore Avenue club, ranging from jazz to punk rock to hip-hop. The community has returned that support in the weeks since a fire ripped through the three-story building on Christmas Eve, destroying the business. Neighbors and friends have posted supportive messages on the bar's Facebook page and community message boards.

Faculty and students of St. William's School, in Lawncrest, haven't had much to cheer about lately. The Archdiocese decided to close the small school and send its pupils to St. Cecilia's, in Fox Chase. But a ray of sunshine lit up flagging spirits this spring when a shy 10-year-old girl named Josephine Nguyen won first-place honors out of 1.4 million students who competed in the nationwide "First in Math" competition. When it appeared that Josephine was going to prevail, a sign went up in front of the school, at Rising Sun Avenue and Devereaux Street, to let the world know, and faculty and fellow fourth-grade students had something to cheer.

A proposed "flagship Walgreens" store modeled on similar stores on New York's Wall Street and Chicago's Michigan Avenue has won city zoning approval for the three-story, 26,000-square-foot former Borders bookstore at Broad and Chestnut Streets in Center City, said Larry Steinberg, the real estate broker who runs Fameco's Center City office. As with Marshall's recent decision to lease a vacant Staples at 1046 Market, the move by Walgreen Co. marks another mass-market chain's expansion in Center City, an aging office center that's increasingly popular as a residential neighborhood.
