FORMER CBS 3 ANCHOR Alycia Lane is no longer "in a relationship" with actor, singer and former "Dancing with the Stars" contestant Ashley Hamilton , her Facebook page indicated recently. Lane, 40, confirmed Monday that she and Hamilton, 37, son of actor George Hamilton , had dated but haven't seen each other for some time now. "Sweet, wonderful guy.

Parx Casino will give $250,000 each year to sponsor the Philly Cycling Classic in 2013 and 2014, U.S. Rep. Bob Brady said Thursday. Parx will be the name sponsor for the June 2 race, which just weeks ago was thought dead for this year after previous organizers were unable to find new sponsors. Parx is joined by New Penn Financial, which will contribute $100,000 for 2013. Also, Philadelphia Federal Credit Union will contribute $50,000 this year, and Sunoco $25,000. This year's race is expected to be shorter than the traditional one but will retain its key feature, the climb up the Manayunk Wall.

A 25-year-old North Philadelphia man was arrested at Parx Casino and charged with robbing an 83-year-old woman in her Bensalem home over the weekend, police said Tuesday. The woman awoke about 2:15 a.m. Saturday to find a knife-wielding man demanding money, Bensalem police said. He bound her legs and arms to a nightstand, cut the phone line, and fled with jewelry and a debit card, police said. Police said a casino dealer recognized Quincy Cannon, of the 2600 block of West Dauphin Street, Monday night from media coverage of the robbery, including surveillance photos of a man using the debit card.

The odds appear stacked in Parx Casino's favor. At a public input hearing Thursday ahead of a township vote on whether to renew the casino's gaming license, comments from township and state officials and regulators were almost universally in favor of renewal. "This has not only been a home run," State Rep. Gene DiGirolamo (R., Bucks) said of the eight-year-old casino. "This has absolutely been a grand slam for Bensalem Township. " Parx officials opened the meeting with a presentation about the gaming facility, discussing the millions of dollars of tax proceeds that have gone to the township, the 2,000 jobs the casino supports, and its donations to community groups.

As the riders approached the finish line of the Parx Casino Philly Cycling Classic at the always grueling Manayunk Wall, little separated Evelyn Stevens of California and Joelle Numainville of Montreal. In the final moments, the outcome of Sunday's race was still in doubt. "I closed my eyes and just dug deeper at the end," Stevens said. Her digging paid off. Both were clocked in the 60-mile race in 2 hours, 33 minutes and 25 seconds, but Stevens, a Massachusetts native competing for the Specialized-Lululemon team, crossed the finish line first to capture the $5,000 first prize in the women's race.
