On Monday night, out of respect for the children, the family asked us not to film a balloon release in her honor in its entirety. Green and white balloons painted the sky Monday night to honor a young life cut tragically short. Police found Lockhart with multiple stab wounds to the neck and arms sitting in the passenger seat of a Honda Odessey minivan shortly before 8:30 a.m. Saturday morning. The van was parked at the corner of 53rd and Chestnut Streets. Less than an hour later, 34-year-old Raymond Thompson turned himself in for his fiancee’s murder. READ MORE: Heat Health Emergency...
    Image source: KYW-TV video screenshot Several students in wheelchairs were on the bus that was hit and later were seen being taking off the bus and placed into another bus, WCAU-TV reported, adding that police hadn't indicated if any charges would be filed in the incident. There were no reports of what happened to the two other men who reportedly took part in the deadly, foiled car theft. Philadelphians fighting back WPVI reported that as of Friday, police tallied at least 100 carjackings in Philadelphia since the start of 2022. Commissioner Danielle Outlaw added to the station that her department has planned on deploying additional resources to combat carjackings, including launching a new operational task force dedicated solely to the issue. But some folks in the City of Brotherly Love are firing back at their car-hungry assailants. Last week, a motorist licensed to carry a concealed firearm turned the tables on a 16-year-old carjacker, critically wounding the young crook in a shootout. Oliver Neal, 60, told WPVI that the carjacker...
    1. WEEK 12, RINSE, REPEAT The Eagles succeed when they run the ball. Joe Judge somehow baited Nick Sirianni into throwing the ball 31 times to Philly’s 33 rushes in their first meeting. The result was three Jalen Hurts interceptions in a 13-7 Giants win at MetLife Stadium. The Giants need to run that back. 2. START JAKE FROMM Mike Glennon can’t win a game for the Giants. He’s established that. That’s a known fact. Fromm might be exposed if he plays a full game at quarterback, but it can’t get any worse than Glennon was last week against the Cowboys. It’s time to give the kid a shot. 3. FEED BOOKER The Giants need to run the ball to control the clock and win low-scoring games, and Devontae Booker has been their clear better running back ahead of Saquon Barkley. Give him the ball to take pressure off the passing game, and challenge the offensive line to move Philly’s front.
    PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Fire up the hot dog cannon — the Phillie Phanatic is back in Philadelphia. Not that the mascot largely — large as in that green, furry, bulbous belly — ever really went anywhere. But a legal dispute between the Philadelphia Phillies and the mascot’s creator forced the team to give baseball’s most beloved native of the Galapagos Islands an extreme makeover. But the Phillies and Harrison/Erickson, the New York company that created the Phanatic, reached a settlement his week that allowed the more familiar version to return in 2022 to Citizens Bank Park. “We welcome the original Phillie Phanatic back with open arms,” Phillies executive vice president David Buck said Tuesday. “We are so proud of the 44-year history of the Phanatic and what the character means to the organization, to the City of Philadelphia and to Phillies fans everywhere. Our goal throughout this process was to come to an amicable solution that guaranteed the Phanatic could continue to entertain future generations of fans.” The Phillies unveiled the redesign of the green mascot in February 2020, a...

    Getty Philadelphia 76ers wing Furkan Korkmaz attempts to score over Derrick Favors of the Utah Jazz. Philadelphia 76ers guard Furkan Korkmaz has been sizzling this summer in the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament in Victoria, Canada. He scored a game-high 20 points in back-to-back contests for the upstart Turkish National Team after catching fire from deep. Turkey beat Uruguay 95-86 in their first contest, then defeated the Czech Republic 87-70 to advance to the semifinals where they lost to Greece. Don’t blame Korkmaz in the elimination game, though. The 23-year-old streak shooter averaged 16 points per game in three qualifiers while knocking down four three-pointers against Greece. He was arguably the best player on the court for Turkey for large spurts. Furkan Korkmaz starts the quarter with a three. Give him 11 points for the game. pic.twitter.com/rECirZGUwv — Sergen Kumaş (@sergenkumas) July 4, 2021 The Sixers need to make a tough decision on what to do about Korkmaz in the coming weeks. The Turkish standout is a free agent with a silky smooth jumper, plus he logged valuable...
    A Philadelphia ice cream shop with roots in the 1800s was named among the creme de la creme. Bassett's  was ranked the best ice cream spot in all of New Jersey, according to a recent list of "The Best Ice Cream in Every State" by "Food & Wine." Open since 1861, Bassett's is the longest-running family-owned operation in America, the website says.  Click here for a complete timeline and to meet the family that keeps Bassett's running. "A staple of the historic Reading Terminal Market since the market's earliest days, this is still some of the country's finest ice cream, boasting a luxurious 16.5% butterfat content (about as high as you can go before it starts to taste like frozen butter) and a wildly creamy, dense texture that has ruined many Philadelphians for ice cream in other cities," the website says.  "The market's sole remaining original tenant, Bassetts stays popular all year long, and certainly during the warmer months. "If you happen to walk in and see either a short line or no line at all, postpone whatever else and head...
