The man has been identified by the New York Daily News as Bad Boy Entertainment producer Stevie J.

RE CHRISTINE Flowers' op-ed on the New Jersey gay-marriage decision: Her article was right on. I wonder how many people, when they go to vote, actually take the time to do background checks on the judges they vote for? The liberal-left judicial branch of federal, state and even local jurisdictions is attempting to force their interpretations and agendas on all of us - whether we like it or not. As an ex-public official, I've lived this. Unfortunately, people are too stupid or lazy to realize that it's happening.

Q: I've had a fungus infection of the large toes for at least 14 years. All efforts, topical and internal, have failed to kill it. My doctor says he can only slow the infection down, but cannot cure it. Any advice? A: Try griseofulvin (Fulvicin), a prescription oral anti-fungus remedy. You would have to take it for several months to eradicate the yeast, particularly in the nailbed. As an alternative, buy herbal La-Pacho tea (in health food stores or supermarkets), steep it and soak your feet in it twice a day. Q: What cause nocturnal leg cramps, and what can be done for them?

Keane Daniels, 20, of the 500 block of Haverford Court, Ardmore, fled the township garage on Kromer Road after the incident Monday morning, Radnor police said. Police then issued a warrant for his arrest on charges of aggravated assault, simple assault, reckless endangerment and terroristic threats. Rich Sonier, the public works employee who was struck twice in the head with the board, was treated at Bryn Mawr Hospital, said Township Manager Robert M. Crofford.

The cops who stopped a van in Montgomery County in January 1987 got a surprise when they opened a 55-gallon drum and found a body stuffed inside. The body was that of German Arrango Vargas, 32, who had made the mistake of annoying a gang of North Philadelphia drug peddlers, police said. Vargas' end was not pleasant, according to testimony yesterday by Ramon Santiago, a gang member who is cooperating with authorities. On Jan. 9, 1987, the day before the murder, Santiago said, Vargas, whom the gang members suspected of cheating them, was tied up and left next to nine bulldogs on the second floor of a garage on Marshall Street near Cambria.

Fred Wilson, 31, made a hit recording in 1995, but he didn't get to hear it until he got to a courtroom. That's because it was a secret tape recording made by a police informant in which Wilson admits he sent two hit men to the West Oak Lane home of a building contractor to rob and kill him on Oct. 4, 1996, said Assistant District Attorney Edward McCann. On the tape, Wilson calls the slayers of Benjamin Milla, 40, of Fayette Street near Washington Lane, "cold-blooded killers," men who "make sure" they finish off their victims, because "that's the way they work.

If you had asked Jade Starling what "The Beautyworx" was five years ago, she probably would have shrugged her shoulders. But today, the lead singer of the local pop band Pretty Poison will tell you that that it's the only place she'll go to have her trademark nails done. That, said Starling, 28, is because the only person she trusts to do the elaborate airbrush artwork on her nails is Lois Burak, owner of the Beautyworx. It's a perfect match - a musician who wanted to be a beautician seeking out a beautician who wanted to be a musician.

Cutting a pet's nails is a task detested by even the most experienced animal owners. Dogs and cats will fight like tigers to avoid it, but it is a necessary task. Neglected nails can grow painfully into the pet's footpad. They can also ruin your carpets, furniture and curtains. Train the pet to accept nail-clipping as you would brushing. Put it on your lap or lying close to you. Stroke it and then, casually, touch its feet. Do not try to clip. Handle the pet, with increasing attention to the feet, for a week before attempting to clip.

Donald Ray Adams shot and killed two men in an alley in 1990, but spared the life of a woman eyewitness. The oversight proved costly. The witness testified this week at his trial, and yesterday a Common Pleas jury convicted Adams of first-degree murder for one killing, and second-degree murder for the other. Judge Carolyn E. Temin ordered a sentencing hearing for tomorrow. Assistant District Attorney David Desiderio will ask the jury to sentence Adams, of Warnock Street near Rockland, to die. Evidence shows that Adams had approached Darryl Patterson, 33, of Cecil B. Moore Avenue near 31st Street, on Dec. 22, 1990, to buy cocaine.

ONE SOUTH JERSEY man didn't toe the line when it came to expressing his affection earlier this month, according to police. Derrick Johnson Jr., 30, was arrested Tuesday by Mount Laurel Police, who had been searching for him for weeks after a bizarre, late-night encounter outside a supermarket in the Burlington County town. Johnson, of Mount Laurel, allegedly gets his kicks from women's toes, and he isn't afraid to let people know. Sometimes a demonstration is required. Police said Johnson approached a woman Oct. 4 as she was loading groceries into her car in the parking lot of a Shop-Rite on Ark Road near Route 38. He told the woman - whom he didn't know - that he wanted to have a chat, and then complimented her on her toes, police said.

What raged in the '90s - the post-Zeppelin grunge-metal of Soundgarden, the crepuscular industrial firestorm of Nine Inch Nails - still seethes today. Each act's latest album (Soundgarden's King Animal of 2012 and Nine Inch Nails' Hesitation Marks of 2013) is a crisp representation of the past refreshed for the present. Wednesday night's concert featuring both bands at Camden's Susquehanna Bank Center suggested that that present has a bright future. Soundgarden lead vocalist Chris Cornell sounded fresh and forward-looking.

Last week, we lost our beloved Mother Mary. She passed peacefully at home, without pain, surrounded by all of us. It still hardly feels real to me, so it isn't easy to write about. My head, and my heart, aren't ready to put her in the past tense. I feel lucky I was able to be with her for the last weeks she was home with us. I tried to help however I could and keep her company the rest of the time. But hospice is a game you play to lose, and it was difficult to adjust. Often, I felt helpless.

THE TARDY ONE, the steady one, the injured one, the indomitable one and the perfect one: Those were the main characters during last night's episode of the Math, Civics and Sciences Charter show last night at Archbishop Ryan. And the Mighty Elephants could not have written a more compelling script. Without its head coach Danny Jackson, who missed the game for a family funeral, MC&S authored a 47-46 come-from-behind victory against Church Farm in Class A quarterfinal play. Junior wing Samir Doughty, as he did most of the season, paced the Pachyderms offense with 16 points, while sophomore forward Nazeer Bostick made a bevy of important plays late that added to Mike Watkins' defensive dominance and kept Lonnie Diggs' coaching record unblemished.

A blur of motion on the ice, Haley Beavers spun into the air to attempt a triple loop - one of the standard jumps in the repertoire of an elite skater. She did not quite make it, stumbling on her landing at the University of Delaware. No matter. Within minutes, a sleek computer simulation showed the 14-year-old that if she drew her arms in just a bit closer, she would be golden. Call it better skating through physics. Four of the five U.S. Olympic singles skaters competing this month in Russia have used the simulation software, in a joint project between researchers at Delaware and a Maryland company called C-Motion Inc. The next generation of Olympic hopefuls, such as Beavers, has lined up as well, using it to practice more efficiently and, ideally, cut down on the number of bone-jarring falls and injuries.

CHEESESTEAK impresario Tony Luke Jr. is getting back into the movie business with Northeast-raised actor/screenwriter Leo Rossi and director James Quattrochi . Like their previous collaboration, "The Nail," their new flick, "Queens for a Day," has Philly written all over it. "The backdrop is the Mummers. What's more Philly than the Mummers?" Rossi said. And considering yesterday's ruling by the Supreme Court that the Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional, it's got a topical twist.

The Phillies played their ninth game of the season Wednesday night at Citizens Bank Park, and infielder Freddy Galvis has started none of them. General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. admitted that it is a concern that needs to be addressed. "Sometime soon - probably," the general manager said. "We kind of take it day by day. " Galvis has made three pinch-hitting appearances and is hitless with a strikeout. He flied out in the eighth inning Wednesday. Manager Charlie Manuel still believes the young infielder will benefit most by being on the big-league roster.

When it was over, and the Baltimore Ravens had hung on to win, 34-31, the several hundred football fans gathered at a South Jersey restaurant let out a Super Bowl-sized yell for the pride of Audubon: game MVP Joe Flacco. "We feel so proud to be from Audubon. He put Audubon on the map," said Janice Frankowsky, who lives around the corner from Flacco's parents, Steve and Karen, and went to high school with the couple in Haddon Township. Flacco, 28, who played quarterback at Audubon High, had fixed up dozens of his family members with tickets to the Super Bowl in New Orleans.
