A Sicklerville woman stabbed another woman during a fight over a man earlier today that started inside a Cinnaminson Wawa and turned violent in the parking lot, township police said. Kartelina Holt, 32, was charged with aggravated assault with a weapon and other weapons offenses. Holt and Ashley Anderson, 25, of Pennsauken, first fought in the store on the 2100 block of Church Road shortly before 7:30 a.m. "The fight was actually broken up. Everyone walked out on their own," Detective Sgt. William Covert said.

The landmarks Camden has lost or tossed away could fill a hall of shame. They include long-gone but still-beloved buildings like the Stanley Theater, the Walt Whitman Hotel, and the Broadway Methodist Church, a list to which the shuttered Sears store on Admiral Wilson Boulevard soon will be added. Let's point out that the disappearance of any single structure in Camden has been far less damaging to the city's viability than the wholesale clearance of blocks along Broadway, Mickle, Federal, and Market between the Delaware River and 10th Street.

The University of Pennsylvania is unveiling development proposals for 23 acres it purchased from the DuPont Co. — its biggest acquisition east of the Schuylkill — while continuing to grow the main campus in West Philadelphia with new buildings, more green space, and better linkages to Center City. Penn bought for $13 million the former DuPont Marshall Laboratory at 34th Street and Grays Ferry Avenue in September 2010, and almost immediately relocated its transit operations there.

I married a man who lives two blocks from the Stu Bykofsky column-featured FrancoLuigi's, on 13th Street. Since I came from New Jersey, I had to get a new driver's license, get my car loan company to cooperate in getting a new car registration — took two weeks — and change over my insurance before I could get a parking permit. Now my daughter is with us for the summer and she can't get a parking permit because she has New Jersey tags. Frankly, she doesn't want to go through all the red tape that I did, especially since she'll be going to Maryland for school in the fall.

Maybe it was the sixth-inning ejection of coach Jack Sturgeon that put a much-needed fire into Phoenixville's belly. With Sturgeon watching from the parking lot, the Phantoms totaled seven runs in their last two at-bats and stunned Upper Moreland, 8-7, Wednesday in the PIAA District 1 Class AAA baseball final at Temple University's Ambler campus. Sturgeon's squad scored five runs in the bottom of the seventh inning to capture the program's first district title since it won at the Class AA level in 2004.

3-D LASER lights, drive-in movies and sports complexes don't usually mix, though they sound as if they should, don't they? This weekend, the three converge for a multimedia music experience, "Laser Light Show," in a parking lot near Citizens Bank Park. With more than 10 acclaimed DJs performing house and electronica music, plus live rock bands, this event will make tremendous noise. Headliner DJ Scotto is producer of one of New York's first electronica dance-music events, Nocturnal Audio Sensory Awakening (a/k/a/ N.A.S.A)

A 92-year-old woman was fatally struck by a car Thursday when a fellow resident of a Cherry Hill senior housing complex lost control of the vehicle in the facility's parking lot, township police said. Rose Weber, who was pushing a walker in the lot of the Raymond and Gertrude R. Saltzman House in the 1400 block of Springdale Road, died at the scene shortly before 3 p.m. Authorities believe Shirley Braverman, 82, "stepped on the gas instead of the brake" while backing out of a space on the north end of the parking lot, Lt.

Back in 1993, Philadelphia committed a radical act. It opened a new downtown convention center without a single public parking space. Despite the modest inconvenience, the city's hospitality industry exploded. Suburbanites flocked in for the popular flower show and other special events, often choosing to take the train instead of driving. Since then, the city's fortunes have picked up and more cultural attractions have opened, yet the city's resolve to limit parking has weakened.
